DENVER, March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This year's presidential elections has exposed a deep sentiment from many American citizens that issues affecting their personal lives are not as important as huge political issues such as Hillary Clinton's emails and the nomination of the next Supreme Court justice. "While these are important issues for our nation as a whole, they are not worthy to compare to the ruinous personal effects of gross prosecutorial and judicial abuse that destroys life and liberty and decimate families," says Lamont Banks, Executive Director of A Just Cause. "Congressional judiciary committees should hold hearings for IRP6 Whistleblower, former federal Judge H. Lee Sarokin," adds Banks, of A Just Cause.
In attempting to define what liberty entails, the U.S. Supreme Court said liberty "denotes not merely freedom from bodily restraint but also the right of the individual to contract, to engage in any of the common occupations of life, to acquire useful knowledge, to marry, establish a home and bring up children, to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, and generally to enjoy those privileges long recognized...as essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men."
"It's rare and highly unusual for Judge Sarokin, who was appointed by two different Presidents and confirmed twice by the Senate, to decry injustice in the IRP6 case," says Banks. "Judge Sarokin's conclusions are fully supported by the facts, evidence and trial record," says Banks."
"These six men were wrongly stripped of their liberty and have been locked up for almost 4 years for incurring corporate debt and that matters to Judge Sarokin," adds Banks. "Not only to their lives matter but so do the lives of their wives, children, mothers, fathers and siblings," laments Banks. "Judge Sarokin is more than just a respected member of the legal community, he is a former federal appellate judge and his unprecedented involvement speaks volumes," says Banks.
Sarokin said the IRP6 case was "mishandled" and that the defendants were indicted, prosecuted and convicted for "failing to pay corporate debts." Sarokin also addressed the bizarre disappearance of a portion of a court transcript that implicated Judge Arguello violating the defendants 5th Amendment rights. Without the critical transcript...there is uncontroverted evidence...that the [defendant's rights] against self-incrimination indeed was violated by the trial court," said Sarokin."The failure to have a record of that conversation must be laid at the feet of the court or the government," adds Sarokin. "The absence of this critical conversation, the transcript which was called for a ordered that very day certainly creates justifiable suspicions," Sarokin charged.
A former legal counsel to both House and Senate judiciary committees said: "IF! Big IF! IF there was a case at all it was a civil case and should have been handled as such. As a former federal prosecutor I am hurt. I am really, really disappointed at how this case was handled."
Dr. Alan Bean, Executive Director of Friends of Justice, who conducted a six-month investigation into case and over 100 interviews said The government "concocted a bogus business theory" to prosecute the IRP6. "The IRP6 case departs from the typical failed-scam scenario for the simplest of reasons: the government's case can't stand up to scrutiny," said Bean. "The fraud alleged in the federal indictment is a mirage," asserted Bean.
"The government's contention that their business was nothing but a scam defies reality, " said Sarokin. "If a scam, would you single out law enforcement agencies as your sole customers...and hire former law enforcement to work on the project?" questioned Sarokin.

"The loss of liberty from prosecutorial and judicial misconduct should disturb our country's leaders," says Banks. Probable cause certainly exists to warrant an investigation by President Obama, Attorney General Lynch and congressional judiciary committees," concludes Banks.
