    Actually Keith is *desperate* for help.

    I got turned down on my refugee claim an incredible 10 months after the last hearing. But after that my appeal to the Canadian federal courts was almost instantly rejected.

    So at this point I am a "failed refugee." The only thing that can keep me from being deported to the US on short notice is an appeal to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. Her office gets 15,000 letters a week so it takes a well known case to reach the level where it gets attention.

    Now you say, being deported to the US isn't so bad. Well in my case it is. Here is testimony obtained about a week ago. It is from May 13, 2004. A Toronto cop is being quizzed by my lawyer about events when I came here three and a half years ago (Robert K Schwarz is the deputy DA who prosecuted the case against me with the help of a former Mafia lawyer.)

                             Q. I don't think you need to go into that. I think we're all aware of that. Did Mr. Schwarz did you ask him if he was going to take any steps to extradite Mr. Henson?
                             A. Yes, I did.
                             Q. And he responded that he wasn't?
                             A. He said the State of California would not extradite Mr. Henson from Canada, however, if Mr. Henson was found to be in another State, such as New York, then they would probably proceed with extradition requests from New York.
                             Q. I see. But he made it clear to you that they have no intention to try to extradite him from Canada?
                             A. It came down to a matter of cost, dollars and cents.
                             Q. He wasn't candid enough to admit that they couldn't extradite him from Canada?
                             A. No. He just said that the State of California would not extradite Mr. Henson from Canada…
                             Q. I see.
                             A. … because of the cost.

    Of course scientology would be footing the bill. Someone who has been sentenced does not have to be extradited, they can just be kidnapped by bounty hunters. And cult agents have made fairly clear public threats that I would not survive jail.

    Considering the depth the cult has corrupted the government of Riverside County, I can hardly look for justice there or even being safe in their jail. I am about to release information that makes the case that scientology created a jury where most of the members were under their control.

    Ok, if you want to help what to do?

    If you live in Canada, write your MP with a cc to my MP and if you will, a blind cc to me or if you want, post it. You can ask them asking your MP to pass a copy on to the Minister, Judy Sgro. You can get your MP from your postal code by going here:

    My MP is Lloyd St Amand, Constituency Address

    98 Paris Road, Unit 3 Brantford, Ontario N3R 1H9


    He says that email and postal mail are given the same attention.

    If you are outside of Canada, supporting email to asking him to help me stay in Canada would be the way to go.

    If you know me personally or by reputation, put that in your email or letter. Half a page to a page is more likely to get read, but the length is up to you.

    Thumbnail background here.

    and in too much detail here:

    Much appreciate your efforts.

    PS and if anyone wants to read the whole transcript, ask and I will try to get it up on a web site.
