LES COLEMAN'S TRIAL STARTS MONDAY MARCH 13TH
By Rayelan Allan -- RMNews Agency
LEXINGTON, KY The long awaited trial of Les Coleman, begins tomorrow in Lexington, Kentucky. Coleman is the author of The Trail of the Octopus, the book that exposes the DEA's involvement in the bombing of Pan Am 103. Coleman is one of a long list of government whistle blowers who have been silenced by incarceration.
The trial is expected to last two to three days.
What are the charges?
Mr. Coleman is being charged with fraud due to a check in the amount $1200.00
I wonder how much money the state of Kentucky will spend on this trial?
The $1200.00 check was sent to Mr. Coleman so he could attend the Pan Am 103 trial in the Hague. It came through people who have connections to the Intelligence community. It was given to Coleman's landlady to pay the rent. It is now said to have been fraudulent Whether or not it is or was has not been proved beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Back in 1989, when I married Gunther Russbacher, he was thrown in jail for one year due to "fraud". The two checks in question had already been paid by the bank. But he was held for one year due to this charge. He finally was forced to plead guilty and agree to a probation. When the CIA caused him to violate the terms of his probation, he was thrown in jail for 28 years. It took us four long and agonizing years to get him out of prison.
What happened to Les Coleman is a typical way that the United States Government sidelines whistle blowers.
If you live near Lexington and can attend the trial, please do so.
It will be held at the Fayette County Court House 215 W. Main Room 2B Lexington, KY
The presiding judge is Thomas Clark
Les Coleman has a new lawyer who tells him that the State doesn't have a case. Gunther and I were told this also. However, if the court is a kangaroo court, it doesn't matter if the State doesn't have a case.
Your prayers are needed. Les Coleman told the truth when he wrote the book, The Trail of the Octopus. He is being punished for being a whistle blower.
Please do what you can to help. Just remember
THERE BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD, GO I
Television station WKYT CHANNEL 27 says they will cover the trial. In Gunther's case, all the television stations in St Louis were set to cover the trial, but at the last moment, they all backed out.
These televisions stations need to know that this trial is important.
Please contact them either by phone or by looking up their webpage:
There are also newspapers that need to be contacted:
If Les is lucky and the verdict is NOT GUILTY then he is going to need a job.
Before he was arrested, he was working as a Radio Talk Show host on WLXC 1300 in Lexington. His program was the Mid- Day Town Forum. It was the most popular show in the area.
Les Coleman has a wife and children to support once he gets out. If you know a radio station that is brave enough to have Les Coleman as a radio host, please contact them.
