Summons Issued Against Kamal Nath In Us Court


Recommended Posts

This is great news...!!!. I urge Canadian Sikhs should consult US Sikh Law body in future protest. This is how things should be done. Protest is double edge sword, all these placards/protest can be used to gain sympathy in general public or cause nuisance in regular joe blow citizen daily chores where it starts interruption their life ie- block roads/transit delay in protest against war criminals. But nothing come close to group of lawyers who knows politicians/senators using amnesty reports and evidence and present to the court having them banned.

According to SFJ attorney Pannun lawsuit against Kamal Nath has been filed under ALIEN TORT CLAIMS ACT(ATCA) AND THE TORTURE VICTIM PROTECTION ACT (TVPA) because of the failure of the Indian government to enforce human rights protections and hold violators accountable.
