|News 2015:Appeal for Hays County's Saner |
Heads in Swami Prakashanand Saraswati Case
Group warns of Major Embarrassment for Hays County in Swami Prakashanand Saraswati Case
News, July 2015: A group calling itself The Critical Mass of Truth Committee sent a letter to Hays County prior to the start of the trial of Swami Prakashanand Saraswati in 2011. The group appealed for saner heads to prevail ahead of the decision to prosecute Swami Prakashanand Saraswati.
The Critical Mass of Truth Committee reviewed the State vs. Saraswati case (Cause Nos. CR-08-272, CR-08-273). It is our opinion that this case represents multiple levels of dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation on the part of the complainants and law enforcement officials. Firstly, the complainants have made false and unsubstantiated accusations based on desires for revenge, the need for attention and possibly monitory gain.
Secondly, law enforcement, including the Sheriff's Department, the District Attorney's Office and the presiding Judge have abused their powers and grossly overreacted given the charges involved and the facts in evidence. Before this case goes to trial and hits the media, there is a window of opportunity for saner heads to prevail. Hays County and the State of Texas have opened themselves up for major embarrassments including charges of racism and religious persecution. In order to restore fairness and justice, I suggest following possible remedies: immediate settlement by mediation with other Texas State and Federal Officials participating.
