Another father up against the system goes on hunger strike!
|Claiming civil rights violations, British citizen and father Amir Sanjari hasn’t eaten for two weeks. Sanjari, who sits in the Sacramento County jail, was picked up for a warrant out of Indiana. He was arrested at a bus station where he and his adult daughter were about to say “Good bye” after their first visit in years.
Both were hoping their reunion would be permanent, but neither had the financial means. Once a successful nuclear physicist, Sanjari hasn’t been able to return to the UK to continue his carreer or get a job in the US. Instead, he’s been helping other parents who are faced with civil rights violations in family court.
According to Sanjari, and documented on his website the warrant stems from his divorce case, which is rife with injustice and corruption. Bob Norton, a MA advocate for reform of divorce courts said, “I know Amir. He ran this up the appeals court but it seems the judge is very politically connected and influenced decisions by making contact with appeals court and other gov’t agencies. Sanjari has learned enough ‘real’ law to be dangerous, expecting that the courts would honor this law.”
