Abandonment Of Appeal, Canada
- Notice of Abandonment of Extradition Appeal
- Extradition Treaty Protection Letter from Alan Gold to Deputy DA, Bob Harward
Section 22 provides documentation
in regard to Harmon’s agreed abandonment of his outstanding Canadian
Extradition Appeal and Judicial Review, and Harmon’s intention to return
to the USA to make application for a full dismissal of the charges outstanding. Harmon waived his appeal rights, not his extradition rights under the Hague Commission Treaty. Article
12 of the U.S. – Canada Extradition Treaty under the Hague Commission
expressly provides: “A person extradited under the present Treaty shall
not be detained, tried or punished in the territory of the requesting
State for any offense other than that for which extradition has been
granted…" With the evidence of Phil Freytag’s dismissal of charges as
to the so called extortion conspiracy that confirmed the extradition in
the first place, Harmon’s chances of wining the extradition appeal and
being set free in Canada were good. His only
reason for waiving his appeal was due to an agreement in place between
his attorney, Dale Parrish and Deputy DA, Bob Harward to return to Colorado on his own recognizance to make application for a dismissal without being arrested.

could it be that the DA Jeanne Smith would be motivated to renege on
the agreement made that prompted Harmon to waive his appeal, and then
have him escorted to Colorado by Federal Marshals in belly chains and
handcuffs with the intent of presenting new charges on his arrival
deliberately violating the Extradition Treaty between Canada and the US?
All of this for custody related charges? Go figure!
when DA Jeanne Smith was forced to drop any effort for additional
charges, why did Harmon not get the opportunity that was promised to
make application for dismissal?
DA Jeanne Smith literally went to the expense of escorting Harmon by
federal marshals half way across North America, only to have him bonded
out and sent back to Canada with a new hearing date! How could this possibly be justified?
