Read this please.
There’s something that we need to know for sure.
The explanation on HRS 333.17.8 does not hold water. “People” say it was not enacted until 1982. But that isn’t the end of the story.
It could merely be section (c) that was added or changed in 1982. Or some other change was made.
We need a PRINT COPY of a Statute book from sometime before 1982. From HI.
Someone in HI to do a physical check on the SESSIONS OF CONGRESS from HI to see WHAT WAS CHANGED according to the notations at the end of HRS 338.17.8.
The session history will tell the EXACT amendment to the laws. It’s not something they can hide.
If it can be proved that 338.17.8 existed PRIOR to 1982, then the “Forgery” may not be one.
A physical examination of the written Congressional Session from HI will tell the tale. Someone on the ground needs to go look and post a copy. Not trust a (leftist) law librarian.
I Find it VERY ODD that the statue (Supposedly written in 1982) reference filing a birth certificate for TERRITORIAL CHILDREN when the territory ended in 1959.
Lady and butter - I thought you might be interested in EvasiveManuever’s idea. And maybe even have an idea how to find out the answer.
