In October of 2010, an unknown American, member of Crystal Clear Forum, an American Yahoo Group, used as pseudonym the name of Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece, to post a single message about Turkey. The unknown American did not violate any law because, according to the Supreme Court of USA, anybody can use any pseudonym or pen name. For example, thousands of people use Obama’s name as a pseudonym. It’s considered an honor, not a forgery.
Only spoofing is forgery. The unknown American would have used spoofing if she used Xenogiannakopoulou’s email which is firstname.lastname@example.org. Instead she used email@example.com which is not Xenogiannakopoulou’s email. The unknown American posted onhttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/crystalclearforum with her pseudonym using a kind of literature called Lyric Essay, which uses emotion and color to enlighten a message.
Some malevolent blogbusters misinformed Xenogiannakopoulou that the culprit was I, Basil Venitis, just because my name was mentioned in the post! As a result of this misinformation, on October 18, 2010, a gang of six brutal cybercops of the violent Greek Cyber Crime Unit (CCU) broke into my home in Athens and into my college office, and stole my computers, software, files, documents, and personal data.
The cybercops locked me in jail for a night, they humiliated me with handcuffs, fingerprints, mug shots, and lies, leaked false information to the media parrots, and the Greek government initiated sham court proceedings for a stack of charges, including forgery and treason! There was neither pillow nor toilet facility in my jail cell. I had to urinate in a bottle! I, a 65 year old with heart problems, was not allowed to keep my hypertension pills with me. There was neither toilet paper nor soap in the whole CCU jail facility.
But that’s not the end of the story. My nerves are broken by no accuser showing up during my court trial! The judge always has to postpone the trial for another day and so it goes ad infinitum. Meanwhile, I always have to show up and waste the whole day waiting as there is no definite timing for the hearing, but only a day. I and my lawyer have to be in the courtroom the whole day until the judge calls my name. Then the judge calls the name of the accuser, nobody replies, and the judge postpones the trial for another day. This has happened five times so far! This is a real Greek tragedy! Justice delayed is no justice, justice perpetuated is hell. This amounts to routine summary punishment of the presumed innocent.

The story of Basil Venitis continue on his blog :
Greece, the most corrupt country in Occident, has become a kangaroo valley,
violating basic human rights and Article 2 of the Lisbon Treaty, but nobody
gives a damn. I cannot understand why the European Commission tolerates
political persecution and freakish Kangaroo Justice within the borders of the
European Union and cannot refer the Greek government to the Court of Justice of
the European Union. I cannot understand why the European Commission cannot
protect Greeks from appalling violations of Article 2 of the Lisbon Treaty by
the Greek government. If the European Union cannot protect Greeks from the
repressive Greek government, who will?
The freakish government of Greece uses charge stacking to persecute dissident
bloggers. Charge stacking is the ability to charge a large number of overlapping
crimes for a single course of conduct. Combining crimes enables prosecutors to
get convictions in cases where there is no misconduct at all. By stacking
enough charges, including treason, prosecutors jack up the threat value of a
trial against a dissident blogger, even if the government’s case is very weak.
Charge stacking is terror. Disgusting governments cannot terrorize their
Persecuting dissident bloggers, the outlaw government of Greece violates Article
2 of the Lisbon Treaty, which states the European Union is founded on the values
of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, and
respect for human rights. These values are common to the Member States in a
society in which pluralism, nondiscrimination, tolerance, and justice prevail.
Greece also violates Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights,
which states that everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right
shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and
ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.
Greece also violates Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
(UDHR), which states that everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and
expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference
and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and
regardless of frontiers.
Greece also violates Article 11 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the
European Union, which states that every citizen has the right to freedom of
expression. This right includes freedom to hold opinions and to receive and
impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and
regardless of frontiers. The freedom and pluralism of the media shall be
Hail! A sensitive issue cannot be fully explained in a post, but only in a
speech, in that magic eyeball to eyeball contact, baring my soul, and declaring
truths that cause shock and awe. That’s why I look forward to the invitation of
your organization to speak at your conference. Basil Venitis, email@example.com
