NBHRN and Comité Pro Derechos Humanos file motion against Grand Jury subpoenas

National Boricua Human Rights Network
Press Release
June 25, 2008

The National Boricua Human Rights Network (NBHRN) and the Comité Pro Derechos Humanos de Puerto Rico (Human Rights Committee of Puerto Rico) are filing a Motion to Intervene in the Motion to Quash the Grand Jury Subpoenas served on Tania Frontera and Christopher Torres. The motion asserts that the subpoenas have a chilling effect on the constitutional rights of association and expression of the both organizations, particularly given the long and sordid historical trajectory of the United States colonial domination of Puerto Rico and its unceasing efforts to criminalize and destroy the movement for the independence of Puerto Rico. Both organizations feel impelled to intervene to prevent this politicized government abuse of the grand jury process. We are ably represented by New York National Lawyers Guild attorneys Alan Levine and Jeffrey Rothman, who are expected to present the motion on Friday, June 27, at the same time the motion to quash is to be heard, at 2:00 p.m. in the courtroom of Judge Carol Amon at the District Court for the Eastern District of New York, 225 Cadman Plaza East, in Brooklyn.
