Why was this blog created?
All further in-house efforts to further justice in the US justice system are futile. These efforts are only worthwhile to the degree that they provide additional documentation of the widespread corruption of the US justice system.
Our focus must be on the international community.
In November 2010 the United Nations will review for the first time ever the Human Rights record of the United States. Corruption of the justice system was the core of reports filed by Human Rights Alert and others for the April 2010 deadline.
In August 2010 the US State Department is scheduled to respond on the reports, and in November 2010 the UN will conduct the review session and issue the report, and set goals, which the US would be asked to reach between 2010 and the next scheduled review in 2014.
Between now and November 2010, we must focus on informing and lobbying the nations that sit on the review panel, to ensure that the most effective report is issued.
This blog was created in hope that the German Federal Government would support a UN UPR report that calls upon the US federal government to provide equal protection under the law to all who reside in the United States.
Please call or write your elected representatives and ask that the German Government support in November 2010 the issuance of a UPR report by the United Nations, which calls upon the US government to abide by its duties and responsibilities pursuant to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – ratified international law.
Bitte rufen Sie an oder schreiben Sie Ihrem gewählten Vertreter. Fragen Sie, ob die deutsche Regierung im November 2010 die Ausstellung eines UPR Bericht der Vereinten Nationen unterstuetzt.
Bitte unterzeichnen Sie die Petition - Richard Fine zu Befreien
Richard Fine - 70 Jahre alt, ehemaliger US-Staatsanwalt, hatte gezeigt, dass die Richter in Los Angeles County "nicht zulässig" Zahlungen angenommen hatten (von den Medien "Bestechungsgelder" genannt). Am 20. Februar 2009 unterzeichnete der Gouverneur von Kalifornien "rückwirkende Immunität" (Verzeihung) für alle Richter in Los Angeles. Weniger als zwei Wochen später, am 4. März 2009, wurde Richard Fine in einer öffentlichen Sitzung verhaftet, ohne Gerichtlichen beschluss. Er ist seitdem in Einzelhaft in Los Angeles, Kalifornien; es ist weder ein Urteil noch eine Verurteilung ergangen.

10-07-02 Mangelnde Due Process Untergräbt Claims of Re-Einrichtung von öffentlichen Korruptions-Einheit der US-Justizminister Office, Los Angeles, Kalifornien.
US Attorney, Los Angeles
Lack of Due Process Undermines Claims of Re-establishment of Public Corruption Unit at the US Attorney Office, Los Angeles, California.
Los Angeles, July 2 - Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, filed request with Andre' Birotte, US Attorney Office, Central District of California, for due process in acceptance, acknowledgement, and review of complaints in the recently re-established public corruption and civil rights unit.  On June 12, 2010, news was published that the public corruption and civil rights unit had been re-established by the newly appointed Andre' Birotte, Jr - US Attorney, Central District of California.  The news report cited a memo by the US Attorney stating that "he hoped to have the unit operational by July 1. "
Following the news, Human Rights Alert (NGO) filed complaints with the re-established unit, alleging large-scale false imprisonments by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the Los Angeles Superior Court, and real estate and financial institution fraud under the guise of litigations at the same court. Consequently, Dr Zernik attempted to document the process established by the US Attorney Office for acceptance, acknowledgement, and review of complaints. On all three measures, the process established by the US Attorney Office appeared deficient. For example - no contact information for the US Attorney Office, Central District of California, was found on its web site at all, in contrast with all web pages of other similar offices in the United States, which were examined, including, but not limited to all other US Attorney Offices in California. No acknowledgement and no ID numbers were issued on complaints filed with the office, and it was not clear that review of the complaints would result in a signed statement by an authorized person. Moreover, the re-established public corruption and civil rights unit was never mentioned on the US Attorney Office, Central District of California web site, not even in the organizational chart.
Widespread corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California, was the core of the April 2010 report filed by Human Rights Alert (NGO) with the United Nations for the first ever review of human rights in the United States by the United Nations, scheduled for November 2010. The letter to US Attorney Briotte stated that there was no expectation that his office would fully address the widespread corruption in Los Angeles County in time for the review. However, it was expected that due process would be immediately established in accepting, acknowledging, and reviewing complaints. "Absent due process, the re-establishment of the Public Corruption and Civil Rights Unit may be seen as only a pretense," said Dr Zernik, "surely the unit cannot be considered operational at this time".
Human Rights Alert (NGO) copied its letter to Chairs of the US Congress Judiciary Committees, to the United Nations, and to the State Department.
Response by the US State Department to the United Nations on human rights in the United States is due by August 2010. LINKS
