“Totalitarians and con-artists who hyped and exploited the coronavirus panic to steal freedom and destroy livelihoods are in the crosshairs, facing the wrath of a team of high-profile international lawyers and doctors determined to seek justice. According to the attorneys involved, the coming tsunami of legal action against the COVID-19 tyrants within and outside government represents the biggest set of tort lawsuits in human history. The scientists and medical experts in the coalition contend that governments’ response to the “pandemic” was beyond unjustified. Whether justice can be secured in courts across the United States and even in other nations, though, remains to be seen.
The effort to use the judicial system against the weaponization of the pandemic features a growing global coalition of doctors and scientists, all of whom are speaking out against what they view as a dangerous disinformation campaign to justify tyranny. The alliance, known as the “Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee” (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss, or ACU, in German), was formally created by four attorneys on July 10. It now includes well over 500 doctors and experts in multiple disciplines. They concluded that the draconian government measures against freedom are all out of proportion to the dangers posed by the Communist Chinese virus.
Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, one of the founders of the ACU, has been practicing law as a consumer-protection trial lawyer in both Germany and California for over a quarter of a century. In an hour-long video announcement, Fuellmich promised that an international class-action lawsuit was being prepared, specifically targeting those responsible for imposing the deadly “lockdown” policies on much of humanity. Just a handful of jurisdictions in the Western world, including Sweden and a number of American states such as South Dakota, refused to go along with the policies — and they are all doing just fine, and in some cases significantly better than jurisdictions that enforced brutal and economically cataclysmic lockdown policies.
Fuellmich also argued that fraudulent testing was being used to create a panic aimed at justifying the tyranny. Indeed, COVID has “not caused any excess mortality anywhere in the world,” he said, noting that studies on the issue showed the mortality rate of the virus to be similar to that of the seasonal flu. Most of the deaths that were attributed to coronavirus in places such as Italy and New York were actually the result of deliberate government decisions to place sick patients with flu, colds, and COVID into nursing homes, he said. The overwhelming majority of the victims were already well over average life expectancy, he added.
By contrast, the government-ordered lockdowns have “caused the loss of innumerable human lives, and have destroyed the economic existence of countless companies and individuals worldwide.” From surging suicide and drug-abuse levels to an unprecedented mental-health crisis, the concrete effects of the lockdown are becoming more and more apparent. Meanwhile, the only way COVID-19 could be classified as a “pandemic” was by having the UN World Health Organization change the definition 12 years ago to exclude the requirement for “widespread” death.
Among his most serious concerns is that because of the “deliberate panic-mongering” by the COVID hysteria peddlers, self-government and democratic rule “is in great danger of being replaced by fascist totalitarian models.” On top of that, children around the world have been “traumatized en masse, with the worst psychological consequences yet to be expected in the medium and long term.” Meanwhile, the economic devastation, including an estimated 500,000 to 800,000 bankruptcies of small and medium businesses in Germany alone, will destroy the backbone of the economy as well as government finances, he warned.
The German attorney behind the effort has a long history of taking on very powerful interests — and winning, big time. For instance, some of his more recent targets include Deutsche Bank, “formerly one of the world’s largest and most respected banks, today one of the most toxic criminal organizations in the world,” he said. Separately, he pointed to Volswagen, the German car giant, which was exposed committing fraud surrounding vehicle emissions. Fuellmich is also taking on some of the world’s largest shipping interests, accusing them in a multi-million-dollar bribery case. But the looming corona crisis cases may be his most important work yet, he suggested.
“All the above-mentioned cases of corruption and fraud committed by the German corporations pale in comparison in view of the extent of the damage that the corona crisis has caused and continues to cause,” Fuellmich explained in the video, which was removed from YouTube after being seen by many hundreds of thousands of viewers amid an accelerating censorship program targeting any dissent regarding COVID and other key issues. “This corona crisis, according to all we know today, must be renamed a corona scandal; and those responsible for it must be criminally prosecuted and sued for civil damages.” German judges are already becoming more skeptical of the tyranny and the suspension of constitutional liberties, he said.
Government cronies who helped feed the panic to enrich themselves will be targeted, too. In particular, manufacturers of the infamous Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests are in the crosshairs. According to the inventor of the test, Kary Mullis, who won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the invention, using the PCR test, “you can find almost anything, in anybody.” Mullis also made clear that the PCR should never be used as a diagnostic tool to determine whether somebody has a viral infection. Unfortunately, Mullis died just a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the world. However, the CDC and German authorities have known all of this for years, Fuellmich said, naming names.
“Under the rules of civil tort law, all those who have been harmed by these PCR test-induced lockdowns are entitled to receive full compensation for their losses,” Fuellmich said, calling out the major pharmaceutical companies often blasted as “Big Pharma” by critics. “In particular, there is a duty to compensate, i.e. a duty to pay damages for the loss of profits suffered by companies and self-employed persons as a result of the lockdown and other measures.”
Aside from the legal actions being pursued in court, Fuellmich and other members of the ACU warned that political efforts were needed to ensure that similar abuses and frauds against humanity could not be perpetrated again. In fact, according to Fuellmich and other experts, the seriousness of these crimes classifies them as “crimes against humanity, as defined in Section 7 of the International Criminal Code that has been approved by governments around the world. Despite their ostensible diplomatic immunity, Fuellmich and others fully intend to go after UN officials at the World Health Organization, which is in the pockets of Beijing and was crucial in formulating the totalitarian global response.
