13-02-02 Renouncing US Citizenship

Ratings: (0)|Views: 91 |Likes:



Below is discussion from the web site of the Isaac Brock Society (People of the US abroad) – the original posting by this writer, and 40 comments.

The postings on the web site document the widespread abuse of the Human Rights of US People abroad by the current US government, through denial of their right to renounce US citizenship, and by attempting to subject them to US law (FATCA and IRS regulations), while outside the United States.

The discussion also documents the case of this writer, and the prevailing of his position - that once one performs his duties, relative to renunciation of US citizenship, one should be recognized by the government of any other nation as non-US citizen, whether or not the current US government choses to acknowledges that fact.

The conduct of the current US government, in refusing to acknowledge the renunciation of citizenship by its own citizens, is out of compliance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 15.

Attempts of the current US government to subject People of US abroad to US law, in particular, relative to FATCA and IRS regulations, are out of compliance with International Law.

Overall conduct of the current US government in this matter reflects an attitude, which sees national citizenship as a relationship, similar to that of subject/royalty relationships in the dark ages.

Press Release: FATCA, Stanley Fischer – 
 
complaint asks release of $250,000 seized of
 
“US Person” by Israeli Bank HaPoalim

13-01-03 PRESS RELEASE: FATCA, StanleyFischer – complaint asks release of $250,000 seizedof “US Person” by Israeli Bank HaPoalim
The complaint asks the release of $250,000, unlawfully seized from “US Person” by the Israeli Bank HaPoalim, BM. The conduct has no foundation in either the law of the State of Israel, or the law of the United States, but appears to have been induced by Bank of Israel’s Stanley Fischer unparalleled, unconditional submission to the United States FACTA. Petition, previously filed with the Israeli High Court of Justice claimed that Fischer exchanged his loyalty to the State of Israel and its law with loyalty to another nation and its law, and/or loyalty to financial institutions and their interests. The case captures the financial crisis in a nutshell – criminality by financial institution is patronized by national banking regulators and the national highest courts. In this case – under the guise of compliance with United States law by Israeli banks. Eventually, the territory of “FACTA- 
 
compliance” is likely to coincide with the territory of the financial crisis, through corruption of banking regulation of other nations, under United States coercion.

Jerusalem, January 6 
– complaint, filed with Bank of Israel-Banking regulation, documentsthe seizing on January 1, 2013, of some $250,000 of “US Person’s” funds, which weredeposited with the Israeli Bank HaPoalim, BM.
[1]
The conduct of the Bank was purportedby the Bank as part of its “New Policy” of compliance with the United States FACTA law inthe State of Israel. Under such “New Policy” the Bank demanded that the customer, a UScitizen living in Israel, sign “Waiver of Privacy” to the United States government of hisfinancial transactions in an Israeli bank in Israel, which the customer refused to sign. Inresponse, Bank HaPoalim now denies the customer’s access to the customer’s owndeposit accounts, totaling some $250,000.The complaint also documents that:· Bank HaPoalim in fact had no “New Policy”. The Bank refused to provide a copy ofthe policy record and stated that none existed.· Bank HaPoalim refused to comply with pertinent United States Internal RevenueRegulations – reporting to the account holder the total interest gained in his account on anannual basis (US IRS form 1099-Int) – conduct that is inconsistent with honest banking aswell.· Bank HaPoalim’s conduct in seizing deposit accounts had no basis even in thepurported US FATCA – the act provides only for only withholding tax on income from USfinancial assets held at the Banks by non-compliant customers.petition, previously filed with the Israeli Supreme Court, sought to compel Governor of theBank of Israel Stanley Fischer to perform his duties as banking regulator. The Court wasasked to order Stanley Fischer to duly register and review a complaint, relative to conductof Bank HaPoalim, BM, and its purported enforcement the United States FATCA in theState of Israel.

 Today, staff of Bank of Israel confirmed receipt of the consumer’s complaint, filed byJoseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO). Whether the complaint would ever beregistered, be reviewed “according to legal standards”, and decision communicated to thecomplainant (as promised on the Bank of Israel web site for all complaints), remains to beseen.In August 2012, a previous complaint against Bank HaPoalim was filed by Dr Zernik, whichdocumented unlawful, extortionist demands and threats by Bank HaPoalim, BM, under theguise of FATCA compliance.
[2]
For months Bank of Israel refused to inform thecomplainant, whether the complaint was registered and reviewed. Most recently, fromconversations with Bank HaPoalim, Dr Zernik discovered that the Bank had received adecision from Bank of Israel on Dr Zernik’s August 2012 complaint, which had beenregistered (No 82304-12), and that the Bank of Israel decision in part induced Bank
 
HaPoalim’s most recent unlawful actions. Regardless, Bank of Israel continues in itsrefusal to disclose any details on the matter to the complainant.
[3]
 In October 2012, petition was also filed with the Israeli High Court of Justice to compel MrFischer to perform his duties by duly registering and reviewing the complaint against BankHaPoalim.
[4]
The petition alleges that in permitting Israeli banks to act as they will underthe pretense of enforcing the US FATCA, Stanley Fischer “undermines the rule of law” and“sovereignty of the State of Israel”, and “substitutes his loyalty to the State of Israel and itslaws with loyalty to another nation and its law, and/or with loyalty to financial institutionsand their interests.”
[5]
 The petition in the Supreme Court of Israel was subjected to a fate that was remarkablysimilar to the fate of the complaint against Bank HaPoalim, BM, at Bank of Israel-BankingRegulation: The office of the clerk of the Supreme Court refused to duly register thepetition.
[6]
 The case of Bank HaPoalim is particularly striking, since in previous years Mr Fischer hadremoved some of the Bank’s senior officers and initiated criminal investigations againstthem. Now Mr Fischer is patronizing their criminality.The case of Mr Fischer is also striking, since review of Israeli media reports indicates thatunder his tenure Bank of Israel was determined, even prior to the final enactment ofFATCA, that the matter was “not under its purview”, and that Bank of Israel refused to issueBanking Regulations of the State of Israel in this matter, even after being pressed to do soby Israeli banks.
[7]
 Combined, conduct of Mr Fischer, Bank of Israel-Banking Regulation, and the SupremeCourt of the State of Israel should raise concerns regarding integrity and stability offinancial systems in the State of Israel.Corruption of banking regulation in collusion with the US courts, under the color of law, hasbeen increasingly recognized as central to the current socio-economic crisis in the UnitedStates.

, and see quotes below]The State of Israel has not yet seen financial institutions’ defaults of the size, seen in theUS and Europe in recent years. However, the case captures a snapshot of emergence ofthe basic conditions for a financial crisis, in a nutshell: Criminality by financial institutions ispatronized by national banking regulators and the national highest courts. In this case – under the guise of compliance with United States law by Israeli banks. Eventually, theterritory of “FACTA-compliance” is likely to coincide with the territory of the financial crisis,through corruption of banking regulation of other nations, under United States coercion.
