Letters from Kevin Walsh in Maricopa County Jail

  24 March 2005

Dear Mike,

Thanks for looking up that Ernst ZŁndel material. Thanks also for telling me how to access my website.

In other news Iceland has granted citizenship to chess champion Bobby Fischer, so he will not be deported to the USA for violating sanctions against Yugoslavia. Japan had planned to deport him for traveling on an expired U.S. passport. In the USA he would face up to 10 years in prison for playing in a Yugoslavia chess tournament during sanctions.

Israel plans to re-imprison nuclear whistle blower Mordechai Vonnuni, who was given 18 years for telling foreigners about Israelís atomic weapons. Since his release he has been forbidden to leave Israel or speak with foreigners. The Government alleged he has tried to contact foreigners.

[I apologise to my Arab nationalist friends for having forgotten to put "Israel" in quotation marks. I certainly did not mean to imply that I recognised the Zionist entity as legitimate. --Kevin Walsh]

Tuesday the 22nd I was found competent to stand trial on condition that I continue to take my prescribed medications. Dr. Patressoís report found me competent but also found me to be delusional, paranoid, depressed and dangerous to myself and others.

My charges have not been altered. I am still charged with three counts of assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon, a class two felony. I have not been charged with resisting arrest, though my lawyer believes it would be easy for the prosecution to win a conviction on such a charge.

The fact that the arrest was illegal does not mean I canít be charged for resisting it. The courts have not upheld resistance to unlawful arrest as justifiable.

On 4 April there will be a status hearing at which my trial date will be decided.

I had been out of touch with Rose Tanui a Kenyan friend of mine, during my confinement. My mother contacted her by e-mail recently. Rose Tanui told my mother that someone had written her warning her not to sympathize with Kevin or the same thing could happen to her. If you want to ask her for details of this, her address is **********@yahoo.co.uk.

Itís OK with me if you want to put either of the photos of me on the website.
