Justice: Argentine Attorney Filed First Criminal Lawsuit against China; Nigerian Attorney Sued China

#1: On April 16, attorney Alejandro Sánchez Kalbermatten of Argentina filed a criminal lawsuit against China in Argentina’s Criminal and Correctional Court 12. Kalbermatten Sued China for genocide through intentionally concealing the information about the coronavirus.

Kalbermatten is seeking, under the criminal investigation framework, to find out the origin of the coronavirus, who should be responsible, why it happened, for what geo-political purpose, as well as whether the deaths and crises that this global pandemic has caused constitute genocide or crimes against humanity. These crimes should be investigated and tried by the International Criminal Court in accordance with the Rome Statute.

This is the first criminal case against the communist regime in China regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

Kalbermatten also plans a class action lawsuit against China. He expressed that the World Health Organization (WHO) was also responsible for this pandemic. (Epoch Times)

#2: A coalition of Nigerian lawyers filed a lawsuit against China. They are demanding $200 billion in damages for the “loss of lives, economic strangulation, trauma, hardship, social disorientation, mental torture, and disruption of the normal daily existence of the people in Nigeria.” The lead attorney is Prof. Epiphany Azinge of the law firm Azinge and Azinge.

Azinge is currently a member of the Commonwealth Arbitral Tribunal in London, representing Nigeria and Africa. (Daily Post)
