The judge has made her ruling in my case. She signed her verdict yesterday of not Guilty! This is truly great news and the emotion after 2 1/2 years of agony is impossible to describe.
We have to fight another battle, at that's to get back all the equipment which was confiscated from me illegally - my cameras, computers, tape and film library, masters, costumes, lights, cables - tons of stuff (2 school busses were loaded with all my belongings back in January, 2005). In Panama's humid conditions we don't know how well many things survived, aside from possible pilferage.
Legal bills still need to be paid and this will take several years to pay back to all those who have contributed the our legal defense fund. If you can contribute anything, even $1.00 please do so by going to my main website and clicking on the Donate by PayPay button at: http://www.fredsalaff.com
