This has gone far beyond absurd. I understand the differences in legal systems and the fact that Maher doesn't have a constitutional right to a speedy trial like we enjoy here.
But this is completely unfair under any reasonable analysis.
Raise that point in another 800 days or so, and you're talking apples to apples.
One of my dear friends is a very good friend (20+ yrs) with one of your lifelong buddies. My dear friend has even talked to you on the phone. For this reason, I feel like I 'know you,' at least in some small, indirect way. But more importantly, because of these above relationships, I know beyond a doubt, proof positive that you are genuinely a trustworthy, kind-hearted, and honorable man. I know that you are a man of honor who loves his fellow man. Please do what you can to bring Ted home. Thank you.
I'm sure this entire thing must be embarrassing for Monaco; they've dug quite a hole for themselves, haven't they? It's not exactly like they can just let him go and still save face, but at least they could give the man a trial and stop stalling. His kids need him home.
Tres classy, Nita. Monaco only gets positive press from the American media. Think there are any former despots and tinpot dictators lounging on the expensive shores? Maybe some terrorist supporters? We need to hold Monaco's feet to the fire (Ack, sorry). Funny how the big leftist lawyers aren't interested in Ted's case...mistreated American medical worker in the clutches of the powerful and wealthy...where's Dershowitz?
>Videotape from the penthouse security camera(s) "missing"
>The police emergency tape from December 3, 1999 "missing"
>The cell phone records for Edmond and Vivian suppressed
>Sonia's three accounts in the fire report contradictory
>The first official Monaco press report stated two intruders
>Initial reports said Mr. Safra was shot twice as was Lily's second husband Alfredo Monteverde who left her two hundred million dollars shooting himself twice in the heart
>Lily changed Edmond's will shortly before his death
>Lily changed their citizenship to Monagasque before his death
>Boaz Bismuth said "the lady" sent the security team away
>"Someone" disconnected the burglar alarm July 1, 1999
>No autopsy report has been released
>Multiple ignition sources reported in the fire report

>False ceilings, a trap door to the attic, special air handling equipment for independent ventilation to Edmond and Lily
>Steel roller blinds controlled separately for Edmond from an electric panel which "failed" during the attack, the blinds made manually inoperable by covering the hand crank access with "decoration"--yet Lily's remained open allowing her "escape"
>Lily had Edmond buried in Switzerland despite his lifelong wish to be buried in Israel--thwarting exhumation?
>Lily wouldn't allow the brothers near the coffin at the funeral
>The police claim Ted knifed himself--yet no medical professional would risk deadly infection by cutting himself over the intestines, and the wound locations made them extremely awkward for Ted to have caused, and the wounds required one hundred staples to close and multiple transfusions--making them far more likely to have been defensive wounds suffered in an attack than self-inflicted, and the police had TWO knives
>The police suppressed and destroyed Ted's original clothing which was slashed and bloody from the attack, provided instead brand-new undamaged and unstained sportswear, clothing Ted did not own and which would have been forbidden to be worn on shift tending Mr. Safra
>The prosecutor claimed Ted was using drugs, but the hospital tests showed Ted negatif negatif negatif for drugs and alcohol

and it was Sonia's [contradictory] testimony that is the sole account of Edmond and Vivian's calls and condition
>False confession in French--Ted does not read/write/speak
>Three days in four-point restraint, catheterized, sleep-deprived
>Police kidnap Heidi, steal passport, use to threaten Ted
>Photos and tapes of children used to threaten Ted >Ted's mail and telephone communication suppressed Consular visits must be prompted by repeated complaint Even his priest's visits have been prevented on flimsy pretext
>Judge D'Instruction Patricia Richet hugged Lily, screamed at Ted, "I know that you are guilty!" tore up children's letters
