Rifqa Bary being denied visitors

And, Atlas has learned, her laptop has been confiscated. The court clerk appears to have been instructed to lie to inquirers and tell them "no information" exists on the next date of her dependency hearing. (The Nov. 16 public hearing was canceled.) As lawyer John Jay points out in the linked entry at Atlas, court cases don't just float in limbo like that. There is always a paper trail and a court date scheduled for a continuing case. The public is being kept in the dark, probably illegally, so that Rifqa's supporters cannot show up to show support for her at any hearings and cannot keep sunshine on the process.

I have somewhat limited computer access right now but hope to get this up at W4 soon, perhaps this evening, as well as a link to an interview I had on various other subjects on the James Allen Show last Saturday.

Do you remember how long it is before this girl turns 18?

Thanks, Lydia. I just posted Pamela Geller's Rifqa URL at FB.

Bill, I think she was barely 17 when she ran to Florida, so it's more than half a year away still.

I think we're at about 8 months now, Bill. Maybe seven. Long time, especially if they choose to take a ruthless approach. If she's returned to her parents, they could all be on a plane to Sri Lanka that day.

That's what I thought. This is looking grimmer and grimmer.

Listened to your James Allen interview. I thought you done good.
