10-10-01 Corruption of the California courts noticed by the United Nations

In summer 2010, the staff report of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, as part of the first ever, 2010 UPR (Universal Periodic Review) of Human Rights in the United States, noticed and referenced the Human Rights Alert April 2010 submission, pertaining to "corruption of the courts, the legal profession, and discrimination by law enforcement in California".

CFR Newsletter: Congress May Prevent Transfer of Guantanamo Detainees to the US // Boletín CFR: Congreso puede impedir la transferencia de detenidos de Guantánamo a los EE.UU.

Is this forum shopping, or what?

Top of the Agenda: Verdict Tests Guantanamo Policy

Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, the first former Guantanamo Bay detainee to be tried in federal criminal court, was found guilty of a single count of conspiracy to damage or destroy U.S. property (WashPost) but acquitted of numerous murder and attempted murder charges for his role in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in East Africa. The outcome was a clear setback for the Obama administration, which could be hard pressed to fulfill its promise to try other Guantanamo detainees in U.S. civilian courts and not rely exclusively on the military commissions set up under the George W. Bush administration.
Several incoming Republican leaders in the U.S. House– including Lamar Smith of Texas, set to be Judiciary Committee chairman, and Pete Hoekstra of Michigan, expected chairman of the Intelligence Committee –denounced the use of civilian courts for prosecuting terrorism cases (NYT). New York Rep. Peter King, expected to become the next chairman of the House homeland security committee, called the verdict a "total miscarriage of justice." He says Congress must approve any further transfers of Guantánamo Bay prisoners to the United States (Guardian), which is unlikely to happen once his party takes control of the House.
In this CFR roundup from earlier this year, four experts reviewed the legal and political ramifications of the Obama administration's promise to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay.
CFR's John Bellinger says the Obama administration has found itself struggling through a political and legal thicket about where and how to try those accused of war crimes.

Please Sign Petition - Free Richard Fine // Por favor, Firme la petición - Liberar a Richard Fine

RICHARD FINE was arrested on March 4, 2009 and is held since then in solitary confinement in Twin Tower Jail in Los Angeles, California, with no records,  conforming with the fundamentals of the law, as the basis for his arrest and jailing.

Richard Fine - 70 year old, former US prosecutor, had shown that judges in Los Angeles County had taken "not permitted" payments (called by media "bribes"). On February 20, 2009, the Governor of California signed "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all judges in Los Angeles. Less than two weeks later, on March 4, 2009 Richard Fine was arrested in open court, with no warrant. He is held ever since in solitary confinement in Los Angeles, California. No judgment, conviction, or sentencing was ever entered in his case.
