RECAP AND URL: ICATOR AND LAWYER'S CONFERENCE
For those who may have missed the event this past Tuesday, there is now a link to the recording at the end of this article, however a lot of the program is in French, therefore, I am presenting a written summary in English for your convenience.
ICATOR's attorney, Paolo, is planning an ambitious agenda which is amazing, yet doable for the country of Belgium. Exactly none of this project is remotely doable for the United States' legal and legislative systems which shows that in some ways, other countries are far more advanced.
THE BELGIAN PARLIAMENT
First of all, the attorney has drafted a petition which he will present to the Belgian Parliament, ideally by early June since most people in Belgium are on holiday during July and August.
Along with the petition, there will be a detailed report containing elements of definitive proof and a request for a legislative hearing. Provided Paolo obtains the 25,000 signatures that he seeks, his request must be granted and the hearing must be televised.
He will then assemble a group of credible witnesses to speak and answer questions of the legislators on behalf of TI victims in Belgium. Katie Pieterse who is currently in Europe busily advocating for TI's, plans to invite Nils Melzer, who she happened to meet last week. And Paolo himself will also advocate for legislation banning the DEW's on behalf of Belgium TI's and those worldwide. Since all this will be televised, it will be interesting to see the public and media responses to this significant legislative hearing.
In the event that the Parliament decides not to enact the requested legislation, Paolo will then press charges against the state for negligence and complicity to the crime.
Next, Paolo will go to court to press for criminal charges against the perps before a judge. The evidence presented must be irrefutable and only the most credible witnesses will be called on for questioning by the judge. And if the judge is adequately convinced that criminal activity has occurred, then he (or she) could launch an investigation into our claims. And if all goes well, the perpetrators will be discovered, apprehended and prosecuted.
The amazing part of the Belgian legal system which would work perfectly for our situation is that the burden of proving our case is not left entirely up to the victim. As long as we can show convincing evidence of criminal activity, the judge would launch an investigation into our claims. Therefore, justice is not denied due to the unseen actions of covert operatives that we cannot identify nor due to uncaring or complicit district attorneys who refuse to investigate covert crimes.
Once criminal justice has been served Paolo will return to court again before a judge in search of compensation for the victims. Whatever damages are awarded will be reserved for the plaintiffs in the case, which will have to be Belgian residents. Those outside of Belgium will be witnesses and could nonetheless play an important role in the case as some will be questioned by the judge.
Provided the judge renders a favorable ruling, this case would set a worldwide precedent for similar cases which could be filed in the United States and elsewhere.
If the judge does not render a favorable ruling, then the next step would be the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg or the International Criminal Court in the Hague.
Now we must speak of the cost for this grand initiative. For the petition to be placed online for all TI's worldwide to sign, we will need to raise 5000 euros for the attorney.
Then for the litigation phase, we will need another 10,000 euros, plus 5,000 - 8,000 euros for medical experts requested by the judge.
For those who may have lots of funds at their disposal waiting for an important TI project in which to invest, I would recommend this most important endeavor.
