Re: Violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA)

Attorney General of the United States of America

Honorable Eric H. Holder

United States Department of Justice

950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

Washington, DC 20530-0001

Dear Mr. Holder,

I wish to share with you a matter that appears to be a violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) of 1938, 22 U.S.C. § 611 et seq.

This matter has potential significant implications with regard to National Security and thus my desire to share the pertinent facts with you.

Specifically, I am making reference to registration # 5864 filed by Manatt, Phelps and Phillips on behalf of the Government of Jamaica (GOJ) through Mr. Harold Brady, of Brady and Company, Jamaica with the National Security Division/Counter Espionage Unit of the US Department of Justice.

The contract which is of public record was executed on Oct 1 2009 and it was filed on Nov.2 2009. The signatures were Susan Schmidt, Partner of Manatt, Phelps and Phillips and Harold Brady acting as a Consultant to the Government of Jamaica (GOJ).

The parties mentioned appeared to have violated the FARA by not declaring the extent of their lobbying activities and also the source of the funds for their lobbying efforts.

Based on evidenced gleaned from a private investigative service, it would appear that the lobbying effort was financed by Mr. Christopher Coke (a.k.a “Dudus”) who has been named by the US Department of Justice to a list of “consolidate priority organization targets” which includes persons the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) says are the “world’s most dangerous narcotics kingpins”. Mr. Coke is a US fugitive and he has been indicted by a Grand Jury in the Southern District of New York. (Please see Exhibit 1- Indictment of Christopher Michael Coke)

The apparent criminal violation of the FARA is also suggestive of money laundering as the senior partner in the Manatt, Phelps and Phillips law firm, Susan Schmidt visited Jamaica in 2009, met with Mr. Christopher Coke knowing he was a US Fugitive, the Hon. Daryl Vaz- Jamaican Minister of Information and Mr. Harold Brady. The law firm Manatt, Phelps and Phillips then received from Mr. Coke the sum of US $49,892.62 as an installment towards their legal lobbying fee of US$400,000 per annum. This installment was given to Manatt by Mr. Harold Brady who was then promoting himself as a consultant to the GOJ.The funds originated from Incomparable Enterprises Limited a Jamaican Corporation owned by Mr. Coke and was laundered through the “Tourism Enhancement Fund”. This amount was issued on a check drawn on a Bank of Nova Scotia Account.

Ms. Schmidt thereafter met with the Hon. Bruce Golding- Prime Minister of Jamaica at Jamaica House. The signature of Ms. Schmidt on documents filed with the US Department of Justice cross reference to the signature of a similarly named individual in the Protocol Directory at Jamaica House.

It is apparent that Mr. Christopher Coke is very benevolent to the GOJ and its members.

Indeed Mr. Harold Brady hosted at his home a party for the Jamaican Attorney General the Hon. Dorothy Lightbourne, with the source of funding for the celebration being Mr. Coke.

Based on evidence gleaned to date and my enquiries with the Southern District of New York, this case may be currently subject to an “Obstruction of Justice” Investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.).

Manatt, Phelps & Phillips is a large sophisticated “AV” law firm and is certainly aware of the intricacies of the FARA. How could they have claimed to be an agent for the “GOJ” when the so called consultant, Harold Brady is denying his association with the law firm?

Further, the attached newspaper articles demonstrate that the Jamaican Prime Minister- the Hon. Bruce Golding was unaware of the fact that the Manatt, Phelps and Phillips law firm was representing Jamaica and lobbying on behalf of Mr. Coke.

You will note the Observer Newspaper article of 3.18.10 that indicates the Jamaican Minister of Information- Hon. Daryl Vaz, as being perplexed about this contract between the “GOJ” and Manatt, Phelps & Phillips in which he suggested that no contractual relationship of this type exists.(Please see Exhibit 2- Jamaican Newspaper articles).

I would like the Manatt, Phelps & Phillips law firm specifically Charles Manatt and Susan Schmidt to be sanctioned for the deliberate misstatements to the US Department of Justice and for Mr. Harold Brady to be investigated for criminal violation of the FARA.

It is unacceptable, unethical and dangerous for a Manatt lawyer to have met with Mr. Coke in Jamaica knowing he is a US fugitive who had already been indicted by a US Grand Jury. Also, of paramount concern is the fact that the law firm Manatt, Phelps and Phillips did not sufficiently declare the nature and focus of its lobbying efforts on behalf of the “GOJ”.

It would appear the law firms real client is Mr. Christopher Coke who has been charged with conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana and conspiracy to illegally traffic in firearmshttp://blog.gfbcproductions.biz/2010/05/16/the-dudus-letter-seet-deh/

BRUCE MEK U LIE SUH?

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article7136940.ece

Bruce Golding, the Prime Minister of Jamaica, has complained of an international conspiracy against his Government after news reports suggesting that US authorities consider him a “known criminal affiliate” of the fugitive drugs baron Christopher “Dudus” Coke.

More than 60 people have been killed since soldiers stormed Mr Coke’s bastion in the barricaded Kingston slum of Tivoli Gardens in an unsuccessful bid to arrest him for extradition to the United States, where he faces drug-trafficking and gun-running charges.
Tivoli Gardens, Jamaica’s first public housing project, is in a part of West Kingston represented in Parliament by Mr Golding, who has long resisted the extradition request for Mr Coke.
Mr Golding has faced mounting questions as to his own role since he was forced to admit two weeks ago that he had hired a US law firm to help lobby against the US extradition request.

The violence that has convulsed the Jamaican capital began on May 17, when Mr Golding abruptly reversed his position and ordered Mr Coke’s arrest.
In a statement today, Mr Golding’s office dismissed an ABC News report that US officials considered him a “criminal affiliate” of the alleged drugs baron. It also attacked an article in The Independent suggesting that Mr Coke’s “Shower Posse” gang was effectively on the payroll of Mr Golding’s Jamaica Labour Party (JLP).
ABC quoted “official US accounts” as saying that the JLP was voted into power through “Coke’s murderous and strong-arm tactics”. It also said that Mr Golding and other senior Government officials had been electronically intercepted talking to Mr Coke.
“Prime Minister Bruce Golding has categorically denied and dismissed as extremely offensive, reports on the US-ABC network which describe him as ‘a known criminal affiliate of hunted drug lord’, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke,” the statement said.
“Mr Golding says he is also outraged by an article in The Independent, a UK newspaper, that the ‘drug gang was on (the) payroll of Jamaican Prime Minister’.
“He said both publications, by seeking to link him personally with the alleged drug kingpin, were clearly part of a conspiracy to undermine the duly elected government of Jamaica.”
Meanwhile, Jamaican forces stepped up a massive assault to snatch Mr Coke from his slum stronghold, as trucks ferried dozens of dead bodies away from gun battles raging in the capital.
Troops and police circled the streets of Kingston late into the evening after a third day of clashes with gang members loyal to Mr Coke and gunfire rattled out through the night.
Hospital sources said three trucks unloaded a grim cargo of more than 60 corpses at a morgue and a correspondent with the AFP news agency saw a baby’s body among them.
Police said that 26 civilians had been killed, although Mr Golding warned that that figure would rise.
“The violence that has been unleashed on the society by armed, criminal elements must be repelled,” Mr Golding told a heated session of parliament, where opposition members accused him of creating the crisis by earlier inaction.
“The operations being carried out under emergency powers are an extraordinary response to an extraordinary challenge to the safety and security of our citizens,” Mr Golding said.
Mr Coke’s supporters used tree branches, old cars and refrigerators as barricades to seal off Mr Coke’s hideout in Tivoli Gardens, where the 41-year-old has developed a loyal following among slum-dwellers for offering jobs, education and security.

The Orgasmic Jamaican Circus

The events of the past two days have some what reflected the nature of
our Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, an ardent ”Flip Flopper” who seems to
suffer from indecisiveness and over- active nerves.
I use the term orgasmic to decribe the events because at one point,
we were caressed by this Mr Bruce Golding so much so that we forgot
about his ” Flip flopping” and allowed him the pleasure/power of
serving us the Jamaican people. Being a ”Flip Flopper” isnt such a
bad thing when at the end of the day one switches sides because they
have held strongly to a belief that is no longer shared by the clique
or somehow has honestly seen that a better ” belief ” is shared by
the opposite side. So yes we disregarded the ”Flip Flopping, Flip
Flopper” and the comedy surrounding his actions. It caressess,
strokes and as the French say ”we die the little death”.

Niccolo Machivelli said: ” As Prince , especially a new one

cannot observe all those things for which men are esteemed, being

often forced in order to mantain the state, to act contrary to faith,

friendship, humanity and religion…But A prince ought to care he

never lets anything slip from his lips that is not replete with the

above-named five qualities that he may appear to him who sees and

hears him altogether merciful, faithtful,humane , upright and

religious”.

When one examines these words in terms of Prime Minister Bruce
Golding’s actions a few words seem to echo more loudly than others
”But A Prince ought to care he never lets anything slip from his
lips”.
– The admission of using ”party funds” to finance ”Minatt” who
were hired in defence of Mr Coke
– Apologising for his ”involvement/ relationship” with Mr Coke
This makes me shake and at the end of my ”shaking” I end with a
”hmmm” ,because there are no words to describe our Prime Minister’s
actions. Mr Coke whom he Mr Bruce Golding our Prime Minister defended or tried to defend a few months ago
,he has seemed to have pulled out all the stops for his capture and
extraditment, almost over night. Is it fitting to say ”Flip Flopper”
or unfit leader? Jamaica doesn’t need and indecisive Leader, we need
a Leader who stands up for laws that have governed our country, at
least. And in standing up for the laws of Jamaica, Mr Coke has done
lawless things and justice has to prevail. Mr Prime Minister there
wasn’t anything to ”Flip Flop” about.
The residents of Tivoli Garden however they may appear are
subjected to the laws of Jamaica which somehow states their right to
be treated as Human Beings. The shady somewhat comical press release
that was release to the Media on Sunday gave  hint to the series of
the events that have taken place post the press release:
– The ”bus” that would be provided for the residents at the
intersection of Marcus Garvey Drive for the ”lawful civilians of
Tivoli Gardens. To date there has been no such bus.
-Citizens of Tivoli Gardens being victimized by ”lawmen” sent to
recover Mr Cooke who has yet to be recoverd.
-The disallowance of the Media to enter the ”war zone”
-The constant repetition of the ”law men” who have been injured or killed.
-The blantant disregard for the loss of lives of the civilians
– Lastly the inability of the Governor General or the Prime Minister
to address the Nation.
For the Law men who should be commended for their heroic efforts I
leave them a bit of  W.B Yeats:

I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate,
Those that I guard I do not love;
My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public men, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight….
