Man faces extradition trial on Thursday 19th March for the crime of sending a DVD
The following is a press release concerning the arrest and trial of John Anthony Hill, with information on where to go if you wish to show support.
The maker of the film "7/7 Ripple Effect", John Anthony Hill, who was arrested by gardai on Tuesday 10th February 2009, and kept in prison for nearly 10 days before being released on bail, will be attending court on Thursday 19th March 2009 at 2:00 PM, at the Four Courts building in Dublin. There is a noticeboard in the reception area under the dome, that provides information concerning in which courtrooms the trials are being held.
The British authorities are attempting to have him extradited to face trial for "attempting to pervert the course of justice", for mailing a DVD to the judge and jury foreman of the first trial of Waheed Ali, 25, Sadeer Saleem, 28, and Mohammed Shakil, 32, who were being tried at Kingston Crown Court, England, wrongfully accused of helping the four designated patsies of the London 7/7/2005 bombings who were; in reality; victims, as much as all the others who died and/or were injured and traumatized that day.
As far as John; who was born in Sheffield, England and has spent the last 11 years in Ireland; is concerned, he firmly believes those men are innocent, just like the Guildford Four and Birmingham Six, and he mailed the DVD in order to help straighten out the course of justice not pervert it.
The film "7/7 Ripple Effect" proves that the four men wrongfully accused of carrying out the London 7/7 terror attacks, are innocent, and that therefore the three men who are presently being re-tried for allegedly helping them, are also innocent and have no case to answer.
Information has reached John, that the DVD never even reached the judge and jury foreman of that first trial, as the "Kingston court staff" did not pass it on to them. Which I don't think was very nice of them. Neither was the fact they instead gave the DVD to the police, to whom the DVD was not addressed to. A DVD of a film that had been publicly available on the internet since the 5th November 2007, six months before he mailed a copy of it to the court at Kingston.
The maximum sentence for the false charge that has been laid on him, is Life Imprisonment. He is 60 years old. He doesn't want any sympathy because of that as he is a fighter, but I wanted to mention it regardless because I believe he is a great example to all who strive for truth and justice in this world.
John is asking anyone who is not working that day or can take the afternoon off (this Thursday the 19th), and wishes to attend to show support, to come along at 1:30pm.
I also know he is a very interesting and nice man, a true friend who loves his neighbour, and it wouldn't do anyone harm to meet him. So be there if you can. The authorities only get away with evil things like this because no-one cares enough (all it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing). It is an absolute crime that the Irish and British authorities are expending so much time, effort and money, on this case, whilst the thieves in the higher strata of society continue to rob both countries blind.
