Press Release (ePRNews.com) - HONOLULU - Jun 24, 2017 - Codefore Publishing editor Jim Benish said that in December 2015 he submitted a Citizens Affidavit (authorized by the US Constitution) to the Federal Court District of Hawaii. He said that almost immediately he received a letter from the Court Clerk that the Affidavit could not be accpeted and that if it was not retrieved from the court all the documents would be distroyed.
Benish said he called the clerk to inquire as to what authority she had to justify distroying a court document. The clerks answer was, “Its a general opinion.”
Benish sent an email directly to Judge Seabright asking him the same question. “Under what authority gives your clerk the authority to distroy court documents or communications to a Federal Grand Jury./” “And was this threat authorized by you/” Benish said he did not receive a reply directly from Seabright but in January 2016 he received a phone message from Seabrights clerk that the Affidavit would be processed and given to the Grand Jury.
Benish said that over a year later it appeard that no investigation had begun as no witnesses had been contacted, nor had any of the victims been contacted.
In May of 2017 Benish sent an email to Seabright’s clerk Lian Abernathy asking for some sort of document that would prove that the affidavit had been transmitted to the Grand Jury. Abernathy responded that she could not provide any documents relative to a Grand Jury Investigation.
Benish said that several emails with Abernathy transpired and finally in one of them, Abernathy admitted that she did not process the Affidavit at all but instead made a phone call to the US Attorney’s office and did not remember who she spoke with.
In an effort to verify what Abernathy had said, Codefore Publishing processed a Freedom of Information request to the Court, the FBI and the Hawaii US Attorney’s office. All responded that it was confidential and could not provide any documents. Codefore also checked in the PACER web site. PACER is a site that contains links to all court documents filed with the HI Federal court.
There was no Affidavit or Grand Jury Document registered in the PACER web site.
Benish said that concealing, distroying or altering Court Documents is a Federal Crime punishable by 3 years in prison. The investigation is ongoing.
