Seeking justice for their deceased loved ones and believing that another health pandemic is likely, citizens in Florida and Texas (and possibly other states) are requesting their state attorneys general investigate alleged crimes committed by numerous high-level officials (identified below) prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic for violations of state criminal statutes.
Attorneys with the Vires Law Group headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida, have prepared extensive legal briefs pro bono soon to be filed with each state’s attorney general. For various reasons, it is believed that federal prosecutors will not pursue the actions requested herein.
The citizens believe it is very important to conduct these investigations and if warranted, indict and prosecute persons found guilty of violations of state criminal laws. In doing so, the citizens believe such action may be instrumental in deterring the same or similar crimes by healthcare personnel and other officials during a future pandemic or other health emergency.
In Florida, an investigation has been requested by 32 families of loved ones lost during the COVID-19 pandemic. In Texas, 40 families are requesting the same type investigation on behalf of their deceased family members.
Persons accused of crimes include: Anthony Fauci, ex-Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Cliff Lane, Deputy Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Francis Collins, ex-Director, National Institutes of Health; Deborah Birx, ex-White House COVID Response Coordinator; Rochelle Walensky, ex-Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Stephen Hahn, ex-Commissioner, Federal Drug Administration; Robert Redford, ex-Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Peter Daszak, President, Eco-Health Alliance; and administrators and healthcare providers of various hospital systems and facilities providing care to patients in Florida and Texas.
In Florida, alleged crimes per Florida criminal statute include: a) 1st and 2nd degree murder while committing acts of terrorism; b) 1st and 2nd degree murder while committing aggravated abuse of the elderly and disabled; c) aggravated manslaughter of the elderly, disabled, or children; and d) racketeering under the Florida RICO Act.
In Texas, alleged crimes per Texas penal code include: a) capital murder; b) murder;
c) manslaughter; d) trafficking of persons; e) participation in enterprise through racketeering or unlawful debt collection; f) engaging in organized criminal activity; g) injury to a child, elderly individual, or disabled individual; h) abandoning or endangering a child, elderly individual, or disabled individual; and i) unlawful restraint.
The above filings with state attorneys general are indicative of the justice desired by tens of thousands of Americans for the deaths of loved ones alleged to have been caused by the policies and actions of the above named individuals. More of these filings with state attorneys general may soon be on the horizon.
