Alexey Pertsev, a developer of crypto privacy tool Tornado Cash will have to remain in jail after a Wednesday hearing in his trial on money laundering charges....A panel of Dutch judges at the East Brabant Court agreed that the Russian web developer could flee or seek to hide evidence if freed on bail.
Alright, now that you know the basics and no critical questioning or logical thinking was provided whatsoever by the "journalists" who attended the trial or wrote the articles, let us skip through the 🐎💩 and do so ourselves.
If anyone in the Netherlands is deemed "a flight risk", it's because they literally have no borders since the 90's which has only expanded in recent years and made either escape or illegal entry a trend. Just about everyone can be deemed "a flight risk" under these circumstances, the type of circumstances where you can casually go from court in The Hague directly to the south of Spain, east of Poland, south of Bulgaria and just about anywhere from Greece to literally just walk or boat away from EU jurisdiction. I mean, you thought the refugee flow is some hidden secret? It works both ways. But secondly and perhaps most important, what "evidence" could he delete or hide if you already claim to have enough evidence to (illegally) apprehend him and keep him in jail for almost half a year now, of which the first three months were without any form of trial or charges? You know what the Dutch legal system is saying with this? It is saying "we do not have the evidence that will stick and are still looking, thus we are apprehending him till we found something worth while". End of story. That is literally what this kangaroo court is saying.
Many will not know the fine details of this, but both journalism and the judicial system in the Netherlands is decaying beyond belief. When the last truly popular opposition leader and poised to be next PM was shot in the head in broad daylight, the killer was sentenced to 18 years in prison, of which he eventually only served a mere 12 years. Meaning that this "man" is literally out and free now after changing the course of history in favor of the totalitarian establishment we see before us today in the Netherlands. Two months before his death in one of his last interviews he actually talked about the hostile environment created by the government and media towards him by saying "You should see the kind of threats I get...it's a damn shame the Dutch government is actually apart of this and participating in the campaign to demonize me, so if anything should ever happen to me, I'm glad I can actually say this now, if something happens to me, they are directly responsible. They might say "oh no, not us, we didn't make it happen or pull the trigger" no, you did, you created the environment for it to happen."
So no dear Cheng, who replied to the hearing with “We had the opportunity to explain what the basis is for Tornado Cash and, and why it is not money laundering...It is our opinion that the lack of knowledge is what's keeping him here.” It is not simply a case of lack of knowledge. In my opinion, Pertsev will not get a fair trial in the Netherlands or any other European country that is subjected to the rule of either Brussels or Washington. You think this is an exaggeration? When human waste called Carl Bildt was Swedish minister for foreign affairs, his government purposely let Julian Assange rot in an English dungeon while refusing to send anyone from the Swedish side over to England and question him which could have opened the door for his return back. His excuse was that "it is simply not allowed to go and do that". When the journalist who brought the matter up did some actual journalism unlike the 💩show we saw in the Netherlands, and confronted Bildt as to why he was lying since Sweden did exactly that just recently and went to Serbia regarding a murder investigation, Bildt lost his tongue and did not reply to questions anymore. You see this example right there, that is journalism, holding scum that are calling themselves our government to account. Not some failed opportunist who get paid our tax money to parrot state propaganda at us and "inform" us how bad the opposition is or how bad some foreign government thousands of kilometers away is.
