- So far, I have received two short reports.
One report stated that the hearing took a mere 40 minutes; the second
person calling me said it was exactly 27 minutes.
- Supporters were in the spectator benches
from as far away as England; naturally they felt cheated. It seems that
the idea is to work on the attrition aspect of the public - who wants to
go through all the hassle and inconvenience to be perfunctorily dismissed,
if only indirectly? Security was also much less - I guess the system finally
understands that our supporters aren't the ones who are "inciting
- During one of the later hearings, the
judge forbade applause from the spectators when Ernst came into the courtroom.
This time they stood up silently to demonstrate respect.
- (A few apparently applauded timidly,
and the police took their IDsS)
- Today's focus centered exclusively on
my immigration attorney's letter to the judge where he declined, in my
name, my participation as a witness in Mannheim. I am still not sure this
was the right decision, but I bowed to near-unanimous advice that I should
not accept the offer of "safe conduct". The judge also read
into the protocol some sentences from one of my letters to Ernst where
I commented that the judge was likely acting under political pressure,
"S What is the man to do, what with a dagger in his back." He
likewise read into the protocol Ernst's reply to me that the offer of "safe
conduct" was nothing but a "Feigenblatt"/fig leaf and that
nothing we could say would make a difference in the predetermined outcome
and foregone conclusion.
- The judge further announced that he was
considering showing "part" of my DVD - and that he had not (yet?)
ordered my interrogation in the US.
- The next hearing will be on June 9, and
one female official of the BKA - the equivalent of the FBI - would appear
as a witness. We all assume that she will be Sabine Kuhl, who was particularly
eager to deliver Ernst into the clutches of the Bundesrepublik and who
had coordinated much of that effort from her side.
- Watch her get a promotion for her treachery!
- Ernst always used to say that his case
had made more judges, even Supreme Court judges, than any other case in
- Meanwhile, here we have filed some additional
document with the Knoxville District Court pertaining to the documents
we have received that strongly point to governmental collusion in the Zundel
extrajudicial rendition - a New World Order fancy word for a political
kidnapping, and specifically for the use of vicious dogs to terrorize inmates
in Blount County Jail. Remember that these dogs were handled by masked,
non-prison dog teams - and the abuse of prisoners was filmed!
- If you can, be there in Mannheim June
9. Please don't forget to mark your calendar.
