Submission + - Cisco and US Gov't Conspire to Abuse Legal Process (vancouversun.com)

Mantle writes: "Justice Ronald McKinnon of the BC Supreme Court has ordered a stay of extradition for a British citizen to face criminal charges in the US after finding the US Prosecutors and Cisco conspired to mislead the Canadian courts about the nature of the crime. Justice McKinnon found that in reality, the criminal charges were based on exaggerations and misleading representations in order to pressure the accused into dropping a civil suit against Cisco.

The entire incident was a planned and deliberate act by Cisco, which prevailed on U.S. prosecutors to “grotesquely inflate” a minor civil complaint into a criminal charge requiring 500 years imprisonment.

"Justice McKinnon said that his main offence was that he “dared to take on a multinational giant.”"
