To whom it may concern

Based on the evidence presented, Judge Nakahara knew that Tewodros did not open the door for me, and he also knew that the Mehari brothers deliberately lied about what occurred in their apartment to cover up the fact that they were attempting to kill me. Click here

Since Judge Nakahara is not on the side of truth and justice, he ignored the evidence that would have proved my brother and my innocence, and he was doing things that was in violation of his oath in order to unjustly and wrongly convict my brother and me.

I think Judge Nakahara had sworn to support the Constitution and to administer the law within an equal hand. But, during the trial, he abandoned his role as an impartial judge and he let the prosecutor mislead and deceive the jury. From the beginning, he allied himself with the prosecutor and he was doing things that would benefit to the prosecutor. For instance, he let the prosecutor and the prosecution witnesses lie in his courtroom. He let the prosecutor cover up Abraham’s murder. He was disrespecting and mistreating the defense witnesses. He was hostile toward me, and he was very prejudice against me. He kept arguing with me and yelling at me in front of the jury. There is no doubt that his prejudicial misconduct had prejudiced the jury against me and my brother. He was totally against the truth and justice. He did not even want the witnesses to tell the truth. Click here

The trial transcript clearly shows that Judge Nakahara committed legal errors that clearly and convincingly reflect bad faith, abuse of authority and disregard of fundamental rights. There is no question or doubt that he has violated the Code of Judicial Ethics.

Sincerely,                                                            Asmerom T. Gebreselassie
