1998 - March 4
International Correspondence Campaign
Section 10 provides copies of
international correspondence in regard to the civil aspects of
international child abduction as well as requests for help from the
above named agencies. These letters were written by close friends,
Carolyn Dare and Donald Gilmore while Harmon was incarcerated in Canada.
This section shows that Harmon’s arrest in Canada in February 1998,
with no confirmed charges was bizarre to say the least. The Canadian police were directed by the US justice Department to arrest and put him in a maximum security underground prison. They could not tell him on what charge he was being arrested, except to say it was at the request of the US authorities. The US
authorities were given sixty days to confirm charges or release Harmon.
Cruelly, as Harmon was preparing for his release on day sixty the
charges were confirmed based upon false evidence.

did the police not read Harmon his rights when he was arrested and how
was it possible that the Canadian Police could put him in a maximum
security prison for 60 days without having confirmed charges?
interfered with what appeared to be normal and successful custody
negotiations through Phil Freytag, a professional mediator and family
friend, to turn this into a criminal extradition case?
3 Who used Dearna as a pawn and kept moving her as far as California to avoid her having to testify or be deposed, or indeed to reveal her emotional instability?
could the Hague Commission, any social service agency or US official
ignore information and affidavits of child abuse and do nothing?
could anyone in any justice system equate professional mediation for
property and custody issues to extortion where shared custody and a
50/50 property arrangement were the agreed terms? Was the phrase
"criminal extortion" thrown into the charges by DA's Suthers and Smith
simply to justify an international extradition and get a quick result
before anyone discovered their hidden agenda of retribution?
