NEW YORK, N.Y., Nov. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry has received a letter from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in response to its and 9/11 Family Members' Petitions (https://lawyerscommitteefor9-11inquiry.org/lc-doj-first-amended-grand-jury-petition/) demanding that he present submitted evidence of yet-to-be-prosecuted federal crimes relating to the destruction of WTCs 1, 2 and 7 to a Special Criminal Grand Jury. The letter states: "We have received and reviewed The Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc.'s submissions of April 10 and July 30, 2018. We will comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 as they relate to your submissions." (The letter is at https://lawyerscommitteefor9-11inquiry.org/7-nov-2018-u-s-attorney-geoffrey-berman-will-comply-with-18-usc-section-3332/).
18 U.S.C. § 3332 is clear on the steps that must be taken: "[a]ny such [U.S.] attorney receiving information concerning such an alleged offense from any other person shall … inform the [special] grand jury of such alleged offense, [and] the identity of such other person …." The Lawyers' Committee has thanked the U.S. Attorney and offered its support in presenting the evidence contained in its Petition to the Grand Jury.
The original and amended petitions, with their 57 exhibits (https://lawyerscommitteefor9-11inquiry.org/exhibits-index-grand-jury-petition/), present extensive evidence that preplaced explosives were used to destroy the three WTC high-rises on 9/11 including: expert analysis of seismic evidence supporting explosions prior to the plane impacts; scientific analysis of WTC dust samples showing high-tech explosives; first-hand reports of explosions by first responders; and analysis by architects and engineers that the collapses exhibited the characteristics of controlled demolitions.
Executive Director Ed Asner stated: "The U.S. Attorney's decision to comply regarding our petitions is an important step towards greater transparency and accountability regarding the tragic events of 9/11."
Attorney and Litigation Director Mick Harrison stated: "On behalf of the American people, the Lawyers' Committee believes it is our civic duty as public citizens to submit this compelling evidence to the U.S. Attorney for submission to a grand jury."
Attorney and Board Member William Jacoby stated: "We call upon the public and legal community to contact us (www.lcfor911.org) and support our efforts to ensure compliance by the Department of Justice."
