MISKITU KINGDOM FILES OPENING BRIEF IN U.S. 9TH CIRCUIT COURT

San Francisco, January 27th, 2018 – The Matriarch of the Miskitu Kingdom of Central America filed her opening brief with the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last week in case No. 17-17156 regarding the previous decision in the United States District Court of Judge Jon S. Tigar that involves a complaint against the Republic of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, the Sandinista Party, Rosario Murillo, and the United States corporation, Infinity Energy Resources.  

    Plaintiff Reverend Josephenie E. Robertson, M.T.T. cited some very problematic issues in her 9th Circuit presentation such as proper service of the summons and complaint against Infinity disappearing from the records until the day before the lower court decision, confronting the lower court’s use of the “political issue doctrine” to avoid addressing the issues at hand, in appropriate ministerial conduct by the clerk, failure of the lower court to clarify affording self-representation, then denying one of the plaintiffs the right to participate, failure to provide the appointment of counsel to alleviate due process denial on the basis of both individual and class action venue, and the right of traditional authorities to participate in the negotiation process of their natural resources that now exceeds one billion dollars in revenue, yet the Miskitu people are deprived of any compensation as a class of native indigenous peoples.

    The complaint’s intent is to hold the Nicaraguan government, the other defendants including but not limited to Infinity and international banking entities accountable for crimes against humanity against the Miskitu peoples, while simultaneously plundering the natural resources of the autonomous Miskitu territories.

    The Miskitu traditional authorities are attempting to bring their people justice and freedom through the power of the word called peace. With the help of God, the public and private sector for their cause, they will prevail.
