We deeply appreciate the prayers and good wishes from so many of you. The case has ended in Jan 2014 in favor of Dr.Dammai.
After examining evidence at a hearing on Jan 27th, 2014, federal judge Francis Stacy dismissed government's claims and RULED in favor of Dr.Dammai and closed the case as class B misdemeanor with a $500 fine for 'mislabeling' stem cells (legal def.: "stem cells and packaging did not contain any directions for use"). DOJ's deliberate false charges against Dr.Dammai were DISMISSED by the federal judge after prosecutors (Samuel J. Louis and Cedric L. Joubert) failed to present single piece of evidence to support the lies and deceitful stories they propagated through DOJ, FDA and FBI press releases to influence the course of justice. When it actually came to proving their case, these prosecutors schemed to cause indefinite delay of the trial to force a plea, after 2 years of fight by Dr.Dammai, by resorting to a frequently used strategy of abruptly adding an unnamed defendant to circumvent speedy trial clock. In this case, a Mexico citizen with no connection to the case was added knowing it would take many years to present this defendant to court IF ever FBI/FDA even intended to find the defendant. With the trial indefinitely postponed, the only path for Dr. Dammai to resolve the case within a reasonable time frame was to plead to a misdemeanor to sever himself from the complex case and proceeded to fight the unresolved charges at a later hearing. Prosecutors, FDA and FBI used this opportunity to lie about the plea content.
At the Jan 27th hearing, FDA and FBI agents who "investigated" Dr.Dammai were scheduled to testify, but cowered and failed to show up when challenged to testify under oath. In the end, the prosecutors, after strategically maneuvering to gain advantage of the lower burden of proof required at legal hearings, failed to meet even the minimum 'preponderance of evidence' standard (as opposed to 'beyond reasonable doubt' standard applied at trial). Thus, under the protection of God, and against all the odds that the prosecutors/FBI/FDA piled on Dr.Dammai for 3 years, the case ended with a $500 fine for a technical fault of 'mislabeling', i.e., not providing proper documentation for stem cells.
While the case was ongoing, the despicable character SC Senator Stephen Lewis Goldfinch Jr spread many lies to hide the fact that he supplied stem cells to Francisco Morales and others, and that he financially benefited the most from the scam. Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth's 'Biotech Company' was laughably only an ill-equipped middle-class residential house in Johns Island, SC from which they ran their stem cell operations with Francisco Morales and others for 3 years. Dr.Dammai has responded appropriately to the false witness relentlessly spread since November 2013 by the scandal-scarred South Carolina politician Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr. who is endowed with ample immoral values and witless bravado. Truth about Stephen Goldfinch had all but been safely buried forever by the prosecutors, FBI and FDA. However, the relentless legal fight by Dr.Dammai and the outstanding investigative journalism by Will Folks of Fitsnews exposed Goldfinch's scam to the world.
Patients have petitioned DOJ to bring to justice SC State Senator Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr for his crimes, but prosecutors, motivated by yet unknown reasons, have stubbornly denied justice to the patients. The inherent bias displayed by the prosecutors, FDA-OCI and FBI as it relates to Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr. and Yair Adereth crimes is viewed by many as a disgrace to the rule of law : bigguntracy ; TheBitchNiche ; Stephen Goldfinch- stem cell scammer to stalker
