US Court Finds Conrad Black Still Guilty

Yes - Conrad Black is still guilty. In a weird case before the US courts, Black asked for his fraud convictions to be thrown out - after he had already exhausted his appeals - on the basis that he had been deprived of his right to counsel of his choice.

With his money tied up by the courts during the trial, Black argued that he couldn't hire defence lawyers Brendan V. Sullivan and Gregory Craig of the firm of Williams & Connolly. (Craig is a former White House counsel under Obama and Sullivan defended Lt.-Col. Oliver North.) 

Instead Conrad argues he had to settle with the "inferior" legal skills of noted American legalist Edward Genson and our own Eddie Greenspan - one of Canada's top criminal lawyers.

Unsurprisingly, the US court threw out the case as having no merit, further proving to Black that the US justice system is corrupt and out to railroad him - an innocent man. In a statement, Black said: “The entire prosecution was a fraud and a disgrace and any serious examination of it reveals that.”

So in honour of Conrad Black, an innocent man accused, convicted and hounded to the ends of the earth by a relentless and merciless justice system, I offer this poster ~
