As has been outlined elsewhere here, while in the United States I became a victim of demonstrated fraud on the court (bribery and perjury) at the hands of a different State’s government attorneys. In the summer of 1992, staying with family friends at Broad Branch Terrace in Washington DC, I was told by an attorney neighbor who lived opposite of the name of Patrick Fitzgerald, the present prosecutor in the Illinois case. I think I managed to speak to Mr Fitzgerald on the phone for a few minutes and I think it was from him that I received the name of a renowned Washington attorney who did in due course provide me assistance in the complex matters involved in my case. About May 1996, several US Supreme Court Justices decried “attorney-fraud” publicly in the press, coinciding with the Clerk of that Honorable Court advising me on the phone and by letter to return to the district federal court for rectification. A decade later, one of the attorneys involved pleaded guilty in that district court to having defrauded a different client. In August 2008, an attorney with the US Justice Department in his personal capacity invited me to lay out the matter before him which has been done, and I am fully hopeful the Obama Administration’s new Attorney-General will see things through to have justice delivered in my case. There is no time limit under Fed Rule 60(b) for rectification of fraud on the court.
A youth who had been a petty thief in Multan, was induced by Pakistan’s terrorist masterminds to train to become a mass murderer with an assault rifle and grenades in the Mumbai massacres last week. He was shot and arrested by India’s police and is now in custody. He has already been produced before a magistrate who asked him if he was being mistreated, to which he said he was not. This redounds to India’s credit in view of the vast (and yes, probably racist) mistreatment over years of those held e.g. at Guantanamo Bay. (The argument that the US Constitution and the laws associated with habeas corpus did not apply to the US Government because Guantanamo Bay was not American territory, was always specious.)
