December 12th, 2009
In a shocking development, An American Court has convicted a Ph.D Scholar Mr Vikram Buddhi for posting Anti Bush remarks in a yahoo group. He has been convicted for 4 Years 9 Months in Jail.
In his Comment Mr Buddhi had allegedly posted anti Bush remarks 3 years ago and had called upon Iraqis to attack American infrastructure. Following this the FBI & secret service had arrested him.
During his 3 year long battle Mr Buddhi had to fire his lawyer twice as he claims that they are not helping him in getting a fair trial. Vikram’s supporters claim that even if he posted such a remark it was his mistake and not a crime. However the FBI has failed to prove that those comments have been posted by him (see video).
According to sources, The secret service of US had given a clean chit to him stating that He is neither a danger to George Bush, Dick Cheney or any of the secret service protectorate.
