Yay for a Canadian court standing for what's right!! To hell with the corrupt scum running the US government and their corporate overlords!

Is American law enforcement colluding with Cisco?

As if we needed any more evidence that the United States is fast becoming a Corporate Police State (i.e., systematically deploying police power to protect narrow corporate interests), make sure to check out this jaw-dropping story that broke in Canada late Friday. It details how the British Columbia Supreme Court uncovered what it says is a massive collusion between computer giant Cisco and U.S. law enforcement -- a collusion that seems designed to use criminal prosecution to stop a whistle-blower's antitrust case against a powerful politically connected corporation.

The machinations in this case are complicated, but the basics go like this: Ex-Cisco exec Peter Alfred-Adekeye filed a whistle-blower suit against his former employer Cisco in civil court -- a suit that could compel the company to pay millions in damages for allegedly "forcing customers to buy maintenance contracts," according to the Vancouver Sun.

Cisco subsequently responded with two moves designed to intimidate Adekeye: First, the company filed a counter civil suit against him for allegedly "using a former colleague's computer code to illicitly access Cisco services worth 'more than $14,000.'" Then, the corporation had its allies in U.S. law enforcement cite the civil counter-suit to issue a whopping 97 criminal charges against Adekeye. In other words, instead of following Adekeye's civil case with criminal antitrust charges against Cisco, U.S. authorities were convinced by the corporation to add criminal charges to Cisco's counter civil suit against Adekeye (this move to add state-sanctioned criminal prosecution to a corporation's civil action, of course, is a textbook definition of a Corporate Police State).

Ultimately, U.S. authorities demanded the Canadian government extradite Adekeye for prosecution, and Canadian officials proceeded to follow U.S. orders by arresting and detaining him. However, on Friday, a top Canadian court rejected the extradition request, issuing a stunning ruling that goes way beyond one whistle-blower dispute.


What the judge said :

"This speaks volumes for Cisco's duplicity," the judge said, adding the company had "the unmitigated gall" to try to use the criminal process to humiliate and force Adekeye to abandon a civil suit... the arrest was orchestrated by Cisco as part of litigation strategy to derail the massive anti-trust suit Adekeye launched in December 2008...

Justice McKinnon said that his main offence was that [Adekeye] "dared to take on a multinational giant."

Freaking epic. A judge actually defending a guy exposing a corrupt corporation and a corrupt government. Awesome.

Way to go judge! Tell Obama, the Justice Department and CISCO to go screw themselves for protecting corruption and corporation raping the average guy!

Let's hope that in this current political climate, the extradition can stay quashed. Steve's a lawn order kinda guy, right?

They'll probably take out the judge as well or at least try some smear campaign against him.

Hmmm, if only it weren't so cold in Canada...


Perhaps in a few years when global temperatures rise as predicted, Vancouver BC will be the new Acapulco.

This is beautiful. At the same time, it is incredibly telling that an American must flee because his government is colluding with a corporation. America, Inc.

As a Canadian, this makes me proud.

It takes a lot of brass ones to stand up and say no, but that's what is needed when dealing with a Govt. that demands the World bow to them.

Sometimes, right is just right.

Good Post!

Its not cold in California, South, and Florida, but the South of Canada is quite mild, typical of a variety of your States. ie. the Lower Mainland/Fraser Valley is like Seattle, a Golfer's dream most years.

Dear dark side of the moon, I was sending some lovelight last night and suggesting it be a good mirror to the sun's photons.


The judge will be fine. We've had a few good ones. Tom Berger comes to mind, also BC. He not only spent his life in the people's party, but fought and won BC rights, Pro Bono, the honorable Tom Berger. Freedom Fighter, Archangel, whatever we call such a soul.

I have no fear for this judge.

STAR AND FLAG FOR YOU SIR.

This is the kind of story that makes me proud to be Canadian by Birth.

"With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee."

Its good to see a true patriot in our nation kudos for the Judge may the North keep its freedom and always reject slavery as it has in the past.

This makes me think back....way back to when we (Canada) refused to join the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq.
The Bush government suddenly decided that our beef was unfit to eat and basically banned it for import to the USA.
Everybody here in Canada and I mean everybody! Knew that this was a bull# war to start with.
What did we do? well we started by putting major taxes on our softwood going to the states for the build all you can boom.
Then we hinted that just maybe our oil is not good enough for a corrupt regime to use.
Bingo within a month our beef was good enough for the Yanks :-)
Great post to the OP and S&F here
