International Raelian Movement announces possession of letter in which U.K. Cabinet admits to blocking a lawsuit against the Pope *
LAS VEGAS, March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International Raelian Movement (IRM) says it has in its possession a letter from the U.K. Cabinet proving the U.K. Cabinet complicit in crimes of pedophilia as well as in crimes against humanity.
The IRM (www.rael.org) filed a lawsuit against the Pope during his visit to the United Kingdom in September 2010, alleging a pedophilia cover-up within the church as well as commission of crimes against humanity. The latter charge stems from the fact that the Vatican told millions of Africans that condoms do not stop the transmission of AIDS. On that basis, the IRM holds the Vatican responsible for millions of deaths in Africa.
"We filed the lawsuit in 2010, trusting that the U.K. courts would treat this case fairly," said Raelian Guide Ricky Roehr, who helped launch the initial lawsuit against the Pope. "We were encouraged when the lawsuit was accepted. Then, mysteriously, the case was stayed, preventing service on the Pope while he was in the United Kingdom. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed, although it had initially been reviewed by a judge."
Roehr said the Raelian Movement is known for its sharp criticism against Vatican policy and was even sued by the Vatican in Belgium for actions taken by one of the IRM's offshoot organizations, NOPEDO (www.nopedo.org).
"NOPEDO reported publicly on pedophilia within the Church at a time where no one else dared to talk about it," Roehr explained. "And now we've learned that, merely for the sake of political expediency, the U.K. Cabinet has partnered with the Vatican, the world's largest protector of pedophiles and its largest promoter AIDS propagation. Children and AIDS victims have suffered so the U.K. Cabinet could bask in the Papal pageantry of the Pope's visit."
Roehr said that the IRM has learned through Freedom of Information requests filed within Britain that the U.K. Cabinet had "formulated a policy to prevent 'legal threats' against the Pope during his visit to the United Kingdom."
"When asked why it had initiated this policy, the U.K. Cabinet denied our request for an explanation on the basis that it 'involved the highest levels of the U.K. government, including privileged discussions among government ministers,'" Roehr said. "Privileged discussions? What privilege could protect pedophiles?"
He said the response showed that the U.K government is protecting the Pope.
"This Pope was formerly in charge of dealing with rampant cases of pedophilia under Pope John Paul II," Roehr explained. "So he was most certainly in a position then to bury thousands of cases of pedophilia. He helped the Catholic Church save billions of dollars in damages as well as embarrassment in the eyes of the world."
Roehr said the Raelian Movement will continue to appeal the case.
"Protecting a criminal over the rights of children is detestable," he said. "The U.K. government is complicit in criminal activity, just as anyone is who conspires to keep justice from being carried out. Furthermore, the English press, which we now know was rotten to the core through revelations of the Murdoch-News of the World scandal, apparently cooperated in this travesty."
A worldwide protest organized by the IRM will take place in front of U.K. embassies on March 7.
