For those following the saga of Martin Armstrong’s legal battle, here is his latest petition versus the director of prisons, Harley Lappin, and the U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder.
Sixty-nine pages long, Armstrong lays out the foundation of why he is falsely imprisoned. Doing so, he cites case history and discusses the rule of law which has obviously broken down in Martin’s case. If anyone reading this has any pull whatsoever with the legal system or via the political system, your help would be greatly appreciated as Armstrong fears that another attempt on his life could happen prior to gaining his release in 2011.
On a more humorous note, he has been writing so many appeals and petitions (which go mostly unanswered in regards to his arguments) that he is being nicknamed the “legal terrorist!” Funny how that works, if someone lays out a solid argument for why they are wrongly being imprisoned, they are ignored and then labeled a “terrorist…” Although in this case it’s obviously meant as a somewhat funny moniker, the underlying tone is still an attempt to discredit the reality of his situation which is VERY serious from his point of view.
