Alleged American War Crimes Witness: Donald Vance

Mr. Vance, represented by counsel, is in a position to provide evidence related to alleged Geneva violations by US Government officials, contractors, and entities. He has admissible, contemporaneous notes of alleged illegal prisoner conditions as evidence; and has access to counsel, Mike Kanovitz [Chicago].

The War Crimes prosecutor is well aware of the situation: These are alleged violations of the Geneva Conventions.

This information is protected war crimes related evidence. Destruction of this information, or interference with its dissemination could be a subsequent war crime, and may be punishable by the death penalty.

If this were to happen to you, keep the faith: Americans and foreign fighters are working to end this illegal activity.

Other Evidence

____ Letter Lt. Col. Bradley J. Huestis of the Army, the president of the status board,

____ Copy of Rules. Sample Rule 3 violates Geneva Conventions: “You do not have the right to legal counsel, but you may have a personal representative assist you at the hearing if the personal representative is reasonably available.”

___ Alleged witness: Lt. Col. Keir-Kevin Curry, Task Force 134; sent message traffic via either e-mail or US postal

____ May 2006 Senator Durbin letter to State Dept


Habeas and Mental Competency: If you want to prevent the court from hearing evidence about illegal abuse do you:

____ A. Get Congress to prevent all Geneva Conventions requirements from being enforced, and prevent abused detainees from challenging their abuse?

____ B. Lock the personnel away indefinitely, make them crazy, and make them unfit for trial, ensuring nobody hears the evidence of the abuse?

____ C. Claim the detentions and issues are state secrets, and that any discussion of the Geneva violations would violate US law?
