ਹਿੰਦੁਸਤਾਨ ਦੀ National Agency #NIA ਨੇ ਭਾਈ ਜਗਤਾਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੌਹਲ ਅਤੇ ਹੋਰ ਸਿੱਖ ਨੋਜੁਆਨਾਂ ਖਿਲਾਫ ਕੋਈ ਵੀ ਸਬੂਤ ਅਦਾਲਤ ਅੱਗੇ ਪੇਸ਼ ਕਰਨ ਤੋਂ ਨਾਂਹ ਕੀਤੀ, ਕਿਉਕਿ ਉਹਨਾ ਕੋਲ ਸਬੂਤ ਤੇ ਗਵਾਹ ਹੈ ਹੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਝੂਠੇ ਤਿਆਰ ਕੀਤੇ ਜਾ ਰਹੇ ਹਨ, ਗਲਤੀ ਤਾਂ ਕੌਮ ਦੀ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਚੁੱਪੀ ਧਾਰ ਕੇ ਹਿੰਦੋਸਤਾਨੀ ਬੁੱਚੜ ਸਿਸਟਮ ਨੂੰ ਸਿੱਖ ਨੋਜੁਆਨਾਂ ਤੇ ਜ਼ੁਲਮ ਕਰਨ ਦੀ ਇਜ਼ਾਜ਼ਤ ਦੇ ਰਹੀ ਹੈ ।

As Bhai Jagtar Singh #Johal #Jaggi approaches 10 months in detention, the stalling and underhanded tactics by Punjab #police and the NIA continue to delay the commencement of any trial. On one hand we see no “witnesses” appearing when called and on the other hand we see the NIA refusing to disclose all the “witness” statements.

At the beginning of the year a man committed suicide when he was being forced to provide false testimony against Jaggi and was being pressured to become a #fake #witness. This information combined with the failure of witnesses appearing at hearings and the refusal of witness statements being disclosed makes it clear there are no real witnesses and the state is conspiring against Jaggi.

These continuous delays provides the state to buy or coerce fake witnesses to testify and create fake witness statements to be submitted to a judge. This delay also allows the state to coach their bought witnesses on how to handle themselves in cross examination.

With the UK government permitting this sham of a pre-trial to continue, it appears to suggest they have little care for Jaggi as they have abandoned him for over 300 days and continue to #abandon him.

305 Days In Detention (10 Months)

Today marked exactly 10 months since plain clothed police officers abducted Jaggi from the streets of Punjab and physically tortured him for 4 consecutive days at a black site. The officers kept Jaggi away from his family and lawyers whilst they physically and mentally tortured him as they attempted to concoct a fake confession from Jaggi.

In the days since Jaggi’s abduction the Indian government has fed lie after lie via their bought media channels. In the UK, only BBC news and ITV news has reported on Jaggi’s situation. The other news channels, just like the UK government stance on Jaggi seems to be clear – THEY SIMPLY DON’T CARE!!!

The UK has welcomed numerous Indian diplomats for official trade talks and failed to get any answers from them. Several UK politicians have also travelled to India and done nothing to raise Jaggi’s allegations of torture or ensure his right to a fair trial.

In latest hearing, which was Jaggi’s 51st pre-trial preliminary hearing, the NIA managed to fool the judge again and gain another 1 week extension to reply to an application they have been expecting for over 4 months when they filed their initial chargesheet.

The NIA claimed they had insufficient time to prepare a response as to why they have been disclosing evidence. In a non-biased court, this response would have been rejected and the NIA would have been compelled to answer or face being reprimanded for continuously delaying court procedures and subsequently been refused the request for an adjournment. Instead, the judge granted the extension without listening to the defences argument.

The Prime Minister of the UK continues to avoid the MP of Jaggi who has been relentless in getting a meeting with her and the new Foreign Secretary cannot even commit to his predecessors intention to meet the family of Jaggi and his MP.
