Title: The opposing legal team and their tactics
Post by: dhanika on March 28, 2010, 08:56:38 PM
I am introducing Sandra Clarissa Zemialkowski's legal team to shed light on the tactics that they have used so far.  I have drawn my own opinions and conclusions based on their behavior but I would like everyone to make up their own mind.  I am not sure if this is normal in the Dominican Republic but it seems highly un-ethical.

Sandra Zemialkowski's legal team consists of two people according to the first hearing that was held in my case on March 11th, 2010 in the Dominican Republic.  The team consists of 1 Attorney and her assistant.
 
Attorney Dilia Leticia Jorge Mera
The primary Attorney in the case is Attorney Dilia Leticia Jorge Mera.  Attorney Mera is an Attorney registered with the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.  You can see her profile here:  http://www.iaml.org/members_data/profile/diliajorgemera/index.html?refer=/members/index.html (http://www.iaml.org/members_data/profile/diliajorgemera/index.html?refer=/members/index.html)
 
Attorney Mera apparently has experience with the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.   She is a fan of David Goldman's Attorney, apparently having met her in person, and apparently followed David's case, according to her blog:  http://familiaymas-dilia.blogspot.com/ (http://familiaymas-dilia.blogspot.com/)
 
Attorney Mera also was apparently an Interim Judge for the Tribunal of Boys, Girls and Adolescents of the National District which is also known as CONANI.  CONANI is the designated Central Authority for the Dominican Republic.
 
Jose Grullon, Assistant to Dilia Leticia Jorge Mera
The second member of the legal team is named Jose Grullon.  He is apparently an Assistant to Attorney Mera.  Mr. Grullon has posted several messages to this forum regarding my case. 

Mr. Grullon, in his posts initially claimed to be taking an 'academic' interest in Kali Soleil’s abduction.   I have since learned that Mr. Grullon in an interview with a local newspaper, the Daily Hampshire Gazette, which ran a series of articles on my case, claimed to be Sandra Zemialkowski’s Attorney.  These articles have been posted in the thread titled “News Articles” that are part of this forum.  Mr. Grullon also has identified himself as an Attorney to the Massachusetts Northwestern District Attorney’s Office.   

The Northwestern District Attorney’s office is handling the criminal case of kidnapping against Sandra Clarissa Zemialkowski.

Mr. Grullon, in the initial hearing in my case held on March 11th was introduced to the court as an assistant to Attorney Mera.

Private emails and allegations of fraud  
Mr. Grullon apparently a member of Sandra’s legal team has sent me several emails over the course of the last 6 weeks.   

Below is a copy of these emails (ordered according to the date I received them), to which I have never responded:

Si mal no recuerdo Ud ha afirmado en varias ocasiones NO ser el abogado del Sr. Athukorala

Lo que yo haga o deje de hacer no es de su incumbencia. Yo le escribo a quien yo quiera, lo que yo quiera, cuando yo quiera.

Yo le sugiero a Ud.: no pierda su tiempo en sus comunicaciones conmigo y dedíquese a trabajar para la causa de su "cliente". Empléese a fondo, Sr. Suero, para que pueda justificar sus honorarios.

Sé que en su estrategia no estaba contemplada la respuesta de la Sra. Zemialkowski a sus malsanas presiones y falsas acusaciones. Sé que nada de lo actual se encontraba previsto por Uds. y que no les debe resultar agradable el ver sus predicciones derrumbarse sin nada que hacer al respecto.

Tambien sé que Ud. firmó un affidavit dirigido a la corte en Massachusetts en la que opinaba sobre la ciudadania de la Sra. Zemialkowski, en el sentido de que ella no la ostentaba. Alli mostró Ud. completo desconocimiento sobre la más elemental de nuestras leyes: La Constitucion de la República Dominicana.

Ya conozco de su manera de manejarse y las referencias que tengo suyas me impiden hacerme una idea positiva de su calidad como abogado. Para decírselo en un lenguaje más llano, que de seguro entenderá mejor: no es Ud. más que un mediocre.

Le reto a someterme por las violaciones que Ud. entienda pertinentes. Sus amenazas vacias no me intimidan.

Avíseme si desea llevar este asunto a un nivel más personal, para enfrentarle en el terreno de su elección.

Is he (Jose Grullon) really a lawyer? I have serious doubts. These emails and the posts on this forum are too brazen to be attributed to a lawyer. We all hear stories of crooked lawyers. But we rarely ever hear of lawyers resorting to taunting the opposite party....and do it in a way that may directly implicate them.

But we rarely ever hear of lawyers resorting to taunting the opposite party....and do it in a way that may directly implicate them.

From what I can tell, Jose Grullon is not a real Attorney, though I am not really sure.   We (my Attorney in the Dominican Republic) asked the Dominican Republic's BAR whether he is one and they responded that he is not;  Here is their official response:

(http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/jg_certificacion.jpg)

There was another recent and high profile case of another individual named Jorge Puello who also claimed to be an Attorney from the Dominican Republic and tried to represent the American missionaries in Haiti who were accused of Child Abduction.  He turned out to be an imposter and was actually recently arrested in Santo Domingo by DR authorities together with US Marshals.

Not sure if this is a problem in the DR.

Considering Jose Grullon's flip flops from representing himself to authorities here in Massachusetts as an Attorney as well as to a newspaper but then representing himself in the DR courts as an assistant I think we can draw some conclusions.

That's awful. Can your attorney submit this to the judge in some way?  I don't think your ex's attorney or assistant should be able to taunt you in this way, I don't think they should even contact you. Shouldn't all contact go through your attorney? He sounds very threatening to me and I would be very angry. It should be reported to somebody.

I have been informed by my Attorney in the Dominican Republic that he received a communication from the opposing Attorney representing Kali Soleil's abductor that she was no longer representing the abductor.   Attorney Dilia Leticia Jorge Mera, who was the primary Attorney representing Kali Soleil's abductor, in her communication with my Attorney told him that she had warned Mr. Jose Grullon to stop his behavior towards me and my Attorney but that Mr. Grullon persisted and this resulted in her decision to drop the case.

It seems that Attorney Mera has ethical standards that she will not compromise on and should be credited for not standing up to this behavior.

Fantastic news.  She sounded like a very competent attorney with a strong background in family and international law.  I was concerned when you said she was representing your daughter's mother.  Lucky for you she also has a conscience and a code of ethics.

Not that it means much but Kali Soleil's abductor has gone through about 4 or 5 Attorneys in the DR.  She also went through 2 Attorneys in Massachusetts.

In the Dominican Republic there are only two Attorneys registered on iaml.org (International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers) one is my Attorney and the other one is this Attorney that just dropped representation of Kali Soleil's abductor.

Gail from what I understand Mr. Grullon does not work for the same law-firm that Attorney Mera works for but was trying to 'assist' her on this particular case.  I do not even know if he has any background in law.  He apparently is a CEO of an insurance company in the Dominican Republic (http://segurosonline.com.do/ (http://segurosonline.com.do/)).

I would agree with you completely.  It is very likely there is close connection to Kali Soleil's abductor given the tactics involved.  The words/tone being used are also eerily familiar to those used in the custody dispute here in MA by her Attorneys.

Wow...he sounds like a playground bully...taunting you like only a bully would.  What a jerk!  (I could think of other words, but I don't want to stoop to his level.)

I'm happy that her attorney has dropped her case because of his antics.  I'm sure there's more to it than that.  Certainly, Attorney Mera could have dismissed this jerk from being her assistant due to his childish (and threatening) behavior.

I also wondered, while reading his emails, if there isn't a 'relationship' between the abductor of him?  I hope you do file a harassment suit against him...he needs to be "shut up" in his own country.  He's a disgrace to the legal community in the DR, even if he's not an attorney (but working with one).

There is going to be another hearing in the Dominican Republic on my case on Thursday.   I am hoping that there will not be anymore delays but Kali's abductor has to find a new Attorney which may delay this hearing again.
Title: Re: The opposing legal team and their tactics
Post by: UD_student on April 12, 2010, 09:30:02 AM
I presume that Kali's abductor needs an attorney for the hearing to be held and she cannot represent herself? If that would lead to her appealing that she didn't have adequate representation then that would be bad, but if it just would lead to her not winning her case, that isn't a bad thing in my opinion. Granted, we all know she has no case, but her representing herself certainly wouldn't help her.

Yes you are right.  In fact in the first hearing there were indications that she was trying to say that she was not adequately represented in MA as an excuse.  But if that were the case the proper thing to do is appeal the ruling in MA through the MA appeals court.

What is really sad is that while the judicial system is concerned about her rights (the abductor's rights) the rights of the most important individual in this story have been ignored (Kali's rights).   The very treaty that the Dominican Republic signed seems to mean little:

Quote
The States signatory to the present Convention,

Firmly convinced that the interests of children are of paramount importance in matters relating to their custody,

Desiring to protect children internationally from the harmful effects of their wrongful removal or retention and to establish procedures to ensure their prompt return to the State of their habitual residence, as well as to secure protection for rights of access,

Post by: dhanika on April 15, 2010, 01:02:04 PM
Just an update to everyone, a hearing was held today in the Dominican Republic.  Kali Soleil's abductor appeared without an Attorney and seems to be attempting to claim that I had somehow consented to Kali remaining in the Dominican Republic.  What is really interesting is that she seems to be trying to use documents from a set of Attorneys in the Dominican Republic that claim they represented me to validate that I had consented to Kali remaining in the Dominican Republic.

So now the focus seems to be from me being a fraud as Jose Grullon had tried to claim to me actually somehow consenting to Kali remaining in the Dominican Republic.  An interesting development since Kali's abductor never once brought up this 'evidence' that I had consented to Kali remaining in the Dominican Republic during the custody case in Massachusetts.

Related to this, the only possible Attorneys that she is referencing to the court to provide evidence as to the fact that I may have consented to Kali remaining in the Dominican Republic would have been the Attorneys that I used to serve her for the custody hearing in Massachusetts (around March of 2008).  After they served Sandra with the complaint for custody I dropped them and hired the Attorney now representing me.  

Apart from a conflict of interest in that they may now providing information to the court on the behalf of Kali's abductor after having represented me it would be very interesting to see what they might be saying since there is nothing I said to them nor provided to them that would show that I consented to Kali remaining in the DR.  I have not provided any written consent (and not any verbal consent for that matter) to anyone consenting to Kali Soleil remaining in the Dominican Republic past the end of February 2008.

The case has now been re-scheduled for Friday April 30th.
Title: Re: The opposing legal team and their tactics
Post by: dhanika on April 16, 2010, 05:10:04 AM
A followup to my previous post.  It seems that April 30th's hearing is going to be the final hearing before the judge makes her decision.  The judge has said that she has enough evidence to make a decision and that she wants no more delays.  She also said that on April 30th she wants the closing arguments.

She has also mentioned that she intends to apply the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction to this case.

It is very likely that Kali Soleil's abductor appeared at the court without an Attorney to buy the extra 2 weeks as it turns out she does have Attorneys now to represent her.

I hope so Tim.  We still have to deal with the curious case of a conflicted Central Authority.  CONANI the Dominican Republic's central authority has very curiously started the judicial proceedings but then turned around and petitioned the court to deny my petition.   What their motivation is, that is the curious part.  From what I understand the Central Authority is  not supposed to be able to petition a court like that.  Their responsibility, once my petition has been accepted is to start judicial proceedings and prior to that to try and facilitate a voluntary return of the child.

CONANI's Attorney Christian Maldonado has acted in a very curious fashion.  He has cited the fact that Sandra Zemialkowski, Kali Soleil's abductor, came to him (or CONANI) before I filed my petition and told them about my case.  He then used that as rationale that the case in MA should have been suspended.  Now, after accepting my petition, he is petitioning for denial in the courts.

I hope the judge can see through this very curious behavior of CONANI.

I hope the judge can see through this very curious behavior of CONANI.

Central Authorities have ample authority, if not a mandate, to petition the court when doing so helps achieve the objectives of the Convention.  Without overlooking the fact that in this case they are doing so in a manner that seems to undermine the objectives of the Convention it bears noting that the US State Dept. has filed motions in many Hague cases heard in the US to encourage the judge to return children abducted to the US.  In and of itself that's a worthwhile and non-controversial thing to do, but it raises the question as to why the USCA never files briefs with foreign courts on behalf of American children, only with American courts on behalf of foreign children.

In this case it would appear that Mr. Maldonado of the DRCA has taken it upon himself to be the judge and jury in this case and tried to prevent Dhanika from ever having his day in court or having an opportunity to present his side of the story.  As much as Maldonado's actions should be repudiated for the unethical and morally bankrupt practices they represent, they too are not without precedent.

Hello Gail, the Judge is going to give her decision by 3 PM on Friday May 7th.

As expected, CONANI petitioned the court to deny my petition and the District Attorney's Office also sided with CONANI.  Kali's abductor presented her arguments as to why Kali should not be returned to MA as well.

I have to wait anothr week now to get a decision.

Clearly, you just want the judge to rule appropriately, however, I am curious if there are any higher authorities in the Dominican Republic who can (regardless of if they would) publicly chastise CONANI and the district attorney's office for acting inappropriately and put in safeguards to prevent this situation from happening again?

I agree, can your attorney get someone to publicly chastise CONANI and the DA?  I sure hope so, what is their reasoning for this behavior?

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to update you on my case.  The Dominican judge gave her judgment on Friday and ruled against me.  I havent had time to put together a summary of the decision and I am preparing a detailed explanation of it.  In her judgment the Judge failed to look at the facts of the case and seemed to side with CONANI's (Dominican Republic's Central Authority) position on my case.

What is very troubling has been the role that CONANI has played in the court case.  CONANI and by extension the Dominican Government, through its representative, Mr. Christian Maldonado has very clearly not complied with their obligations under the Hague Convention.  His arguments are so blatantly incompetent, and to a large extent he has redefined the meaning of some of the articles of the convention, that it seems as if they are slapping the Hague Convention in the face.

I will be writing a detailed article that I will post on my website including links to the judgment and Mr. Maldonado's arguments soon.
Title: Re: The opposing legal team and their tactics
Post by: UD_student on May 11, 2010, 11:40:19 AM
That's horrible to hear. As you'd mentioned the judge stated she would apply the Hague Convention, I had been optimistic that she would not simply side with CONANI. However, it is discouraging that the three sides in the case (CONANI, yours, and Kali's abductor) were not all considered appropriately as there should have only been 2 sides in the case.

I can't recall who your representative is (I'm sure it's posted somewhere), but could you please remind me and if they aren't a co-sponsor of HR 3240, I'm sure a bunch of us can add him to our target list this week. Rep. Blunt's office recently sent a letter to the Costa Rican Ambassador on behalf of another LBP (the office got advice from Rep Smith's office on how to handle the case). Is there any chance you could ask your representative to 'get on the bandwagon' and do the same?

I can't recall who your representative is (I'm sure it's posted somewhere), but could you please remind me and if they aren't a co-sponsor of HR 3240, I'm sure a bunch of us can add him to our target list this week. Rep. Blunt's office recently sent a letter to the Costa Rican Ambassador on behalf of another LBP (the office got advice from Rep Smith's office on how to handle the case). Is there any chance you could ask your representative to 'get on the bandwagon' and do the same?

I didnt have a judgment when I contacted my representative so there was still hope the the Dominican Republic would be compliant.  However, I am going to press my representatives now that the judgment is out and there are clear issues of compliance.  I have already been in touch with Senator John Kerry's office and have been in touch with someone from his Boston office regarding my case.   I have also written several emails to the state department regarding CONANI, and specifically Mr. Christian Maldonado's conduct in their capacity as the Dominican Republic's Central Authority in my case.

I have been informed by my case officer at OCI that they are reviewing my case closely and will be reviewing the judgment and the arguments made by CONANI to the judge.  I am hoping at the very least that the Dominican Republic will be listed as showing a pattern of non-compliance in the next report to congress on Child Abductions.

I will be contacting my representative in the house as well, Rep. John Olver, and I will be sure to ask for his support for HR 3240.

Hello Yvette,

As you know a judgment was  handed out by a Dominican Court on Friday May 7th, 2010, regarding the abduction of my daughter Kali Soleil Athukorala.  The judgment that was given can be viewed by clicking on the link below, which will allow you to download the judgment in its original Spanish version:

http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/Sentencia_0507.pdf (http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/Sentencia_0507.pdf)
 
I do not have a translation of it however I have been briefed by my Attorney as to its contents.  While the judgment is against the return of Kali to her home and habitual residence in Belchertown, Massachusetts, there are very obvious problems with the judge’s rationale that will be challenged in the proper forum for challenging a Dominican Court’s judgment.

What is very troubling and what I would like to draw your attention to is the very suspicious and objectionable conduct and role that the Dominican Republic’s designated Central Authority (CA), CONANI, and its representative Mr. Christian Maldonado have played in the judge’s decision.  In particular Mr. Maldonado became an active participant in the Judicial Proceedings that began in March, 2010, providing a point of view that contradicts CONANI’s very responsibility under Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (HCCH).

Under Article 7 of the HCCH it is the responsibility of the Central Authority or an intermediary (which apparently in this case is Mr. Christian Maldonado) to, upon receiving a valid petition:
Quote
Article 7
Central Authorities shall co-operate with each other and promote co-operation amongst the competent authorities in their respective States to secure the prompt return of children and to achieve the other objects of this Convention.
In particular, either directly or through any intermediary, they shall take all appropriate measures -
a) to discover the whereabouts of a child who has been wrongfully removed or retained;
b) to prevent further harm to the child or prejudice to interested parties by taking or causing to be taken provisional measures;
c) to secure the voluntary return of the child or to bring about an amicable resolution of the issues;
d) to exchange, where desirable, information relating to the social background of the child;
e) to provide information of a general character as to the law of their State in connection with the application of the Convention;
f) to initiate or facilitate the institution of judicial or administrative proceedings with a view to obtaining the return of the child and, in a proper case, to make arrangements for organising or securing the effective exercise of rights of access;
g) where the circumstances so require, to provide or facilitate the provision of legal aid and advice, including the participation of legal counsel and advisers;
h) to provide such administrative arrangements as may be necessary and appropriate to secure the safe return of the child;
i) to keep each other informed with respect to the operation of this Convention and, as far as possible, to eliminate any obstacles to its application.
-- HCCH (http://www.hcch.net/index_en.php?act=conventions.text&cid=24 (http://www.hcch.net/index_en.php?act=conventions.text&cid=24))

Mr. Maldonado’s actions have violated items 7c) and 7f) and in fact he has not provided any legal counsel under 7g).
 
The only possible reason for not fulfilling the obligations under Article 7 might be that my petition is not valid.  In fact, even with this regard Mr. Maldonado has provided no competent rationale to show that my petition is invalid.  To the contrary Mr. Maldonado’s arguments are most notable for their very lack of competence.
 
Mr. Maldonado’s initial rationale for denial of my petition stated the following:
 
I.          Ms. Sandra Clarissa Zemialkowski appeared freely and voluntarily before the National Council for Childhood and Adolescence (CONANI) to inform us that she is currently involved in a suit for custody, child support [pensión], visitation, and international child abduction brought by Mr. Dhamika Athukorala through the Hampshire County Family and Probate Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, United States of America, as reflected in the documentation Ms. Sandra Clarissa Zemialkowski has deposited with us.

II.        Included with the above-mentioned documentation is a court order issued by the Hampshire County Family and Probate Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, ordering the international return of minor child Kali Soleil Athukorala Zemialkowski to the United States of America, based on the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, and, in addition, the order rules on the custody of the child in question.

III.       CONANI believes that the order for the international return of the child Kali Soleil Athukorala Zemialkowski, which also rules on the child’s custody, contains a number of errors, and that these errors make the order impossible to enforce under the above-referenced Convention.

IV.       To this end, Article 16 of the Convention states that in reviewing an application for the international return of a minor, judicial authorities cannot rule on the merits of custody of the child in question.  However, the Massachusetts family court obviously did so by ruling on both matters at the same time, and also violated Article 19 of the Convention in this regard.

V.        Moreover, Article 22 of the Convention was violated in that the court required Ms. Sandra Clarissa Zemialkowski to post a bond, allegedly as part of the proceeding for the international return of her daughter.

VI.       Among other aspects, for purposes of applying the Convention, the nationality and domicile of the minor child are not taken into account, but rather the child’s habitual residence, which is defined as the place where the child’s life is based together with the person who takes care of him/her.
VII.     In the case at hand, from the time she removed her daughter, the mother assumed responsibility for the care and custody of Kali Soleil Athukorala Zemialkowski.  According to substantive law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the father cannot establish custody by simply claiming fatherhood, as [custody] this must be established by the court, and, therefore, [the child’s] removal was lawful.
 
I would like to comment with the following:
I)       It is irrelevant according to the Hague Convention if Kali’s abductor came to CONANI first.  Validity of my petition is based solely on the merits of my petition and supporting evidence.  It is up to a judge to hear the abductor’s side of the story not CONANI.

II)      According to Item #IV of Mr. Christian Maldonado’s rationale he claims that article 16 of the HCCH states that judicial authorities in Massachusetts cannot rule on the custody of Kali.  Here is Article 16 of HCCH:

Quote
Article 16
After receiving notice of a wrongful removal or retention of a child in the sense of Article 3, the judicial or administrative authorities of the Contracting State to which the child has been removed or in which it has been retained shall not decide on the merits of rights of custody until it has been determined that the child is not to be returned under this Convention or unless an application under this Convention is not lodged within a reasonable time following receipt of the notice

Looking at the actual text from Article 16, Mr. Christian Maldonado seems to have selectively left out key facts from his interpretation of Article 16.  In particular he somehow seems to ignore the fact that Kali was abducted to the Dominican Republic and not to Massachusetts.  In addition, Mr. Christian Maldonado failed to suspend all custody hearings in the Dominican Republic and a hearing for child support was held in the Dominican Republic and a judgment awarded against me even when it was done without proper due process under Dominican Law.

III)              According to Mr. Christian Maldonado’s item #V he then claims that the Judge in Massachusetts violated Article 22 of the HCCH by requiring a bond before Kali was allowed to be removed temporarily to the Dominican Republic. 

In fact article 22 of the HCCH says the following:

Quote
Article 22
No security, bond or deposit, however described, shall be required to guarantee the payment of costs and expenses in the judicial or administrative proceedings falling within the scope of this Convention.

The scope of the HCCH again is not to determine custody but to return an abducted child to their habitual residence.

IV)              In Item #VI of Mr. Christian Maldonado’s rationale he claims that habitual residence is where the child’s life is based together with the person who takes care of him.  Mr. Christian Maldonado again has somehow failed to comprehend that Kali Soleil was living in Massachusetts and so was Sandra Clarissa Zemialkowski, Kali’s abductor.  He is now somehow arguing that since Kali was abducted and now living in the Dominican Republic that that is where Kali’s place of Habitual Residence is.

V)                 In Item #VII, again Mr. Christian Maldonado has failed to take into account the evidence provided to him in the petition.  Mr. Maldonado somehow decides to interpret the law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, claiming that my only claim to custody is that I am Kali’s father and that under Massachusetts law that does not mean I have custody.  Yet Mr. Christian  Maldonado has clearly ignored that I have custody by court order which is clearly defined under Article 3 as a judicial or administrative decision.

This clear lack of competence and ignorance of the evidence supplied in the petition by Mr. Christian Maldonado’s rationale is very troubling.  It is very troubling because it lead to an 8 month delay in the execution of the HCCH.  This is a direct contradiction to the spirit of Article 11 which requires expeditious action on the behalf of the CA.
 
In addition the mention of prior of prior contact with Kali’s abductor  as a basis for rationalizing denial of my petition is very suspicious at the very least.  Was Mr. Christian Maldonado rendering these outrageous interpretations of the HCCH due to influence from contact with Kali’s abductor?
 
Mr. Christian Maldonado’s behavior becomes even more suspicious and objectionable in his conduct during the Judicial Proceedings.  The initiation of Judicial Proceedings means that my petition has been accepted as valid under the HCCH.  In fact, CONANI accepted my petition in February, 2010 and gave me a court date of March 11th, 2010.
 
Mr. Christian Maldonado seems to be pressing his own case regarding the validity of my case even after he and CONANI accepted the case.  Again, referring to Article 7 of the HCCH CONANI, once in receipt of a valid petition is required to act and take every measure necessary to ensure the prompt return of Kali Soleil Athukorala.
 
Mr. Christian Maldonado submitted the following document to the judge hearing my case:
http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/conani_1of3.pdf (http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/conani_1of3.pdf)
http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/conani_2of3.pdf (http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/conani_2of3.pdf)
http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/conani_3of3.pdf (http://www.bringkalihome.net/portals/0/legal_documents/conani/conani_3of3.pdf)
 
Whether Mr. Christian Maldonado’s position is the actual position of the Dominican Republic is a matter for the Dominican Government to decide.  However, what is clear at this time is that Mr. Christian Maldonado’s opinion as it concerns me and the Department of State should be interpreted as the Dominican Republic’s official position in my case since Mr. Christian Maldonado is the representative of the Dominican Republic’s designated Central Authority.
 
I would ask that the State Department seriously review my case and determine whether the Dominican Republic is actually showing a pattern of non-compliance with the HCCH.  It is clear to me and I would argue top any reasonable person even one without an expertise in law that CONANI and Mr. Maldonado’s actions have shown a pattern of non-compliance.
 
I intend to bring this matter to the attention of my elected representatives in government.  Child Abduction is an extremely serious matter and the Dominican Government told the international community that it was serious about it by ascending to the HCCH in June 2007.  There now needs to be accountability.
 
Is the Dominican Republic supporting the abduction of a United States citizen?

Hello Grace,

Sandra Zemialkowski's father is Walter Zemialkowski (former member of the US Airforce) who happens to be Director of Operations and possibily also Deputy Manager of the Punta Cana Airport in the Dominican Republic.  The Punta Cana airport in the Dominican Republic happens to be the most important airport in the Dominican Republic receiving about 50% of their commercial flights.  I would say that he has some influence though it is very unclear how far his influence reaches.

It is pretty clear though that the Dominican Republic is very corrupt.  Mr. Jose Grullon has been representing himself to authorities in Massachusetts as an Attorney for Sandra Zemialkowski though apparently he is not registered with the Dominican Republic's bar association.  He also changed his tune on the first hearing in the Dominican Republic claiming that he is an assistant rather than an Attorney.   All I know about him is that he is apparently a CEO of an insurance company in the Dominican Republic and has some relationship to Kali Soleil's abductor, Sandra Zemialkowski, that I suspect is beyond the average acquaintance.

Just an update on my case, we have filed an appeal to the original judgment in the family court regarding my case.  The first hearing in the appeals court was held on Wednesday May 25th but has been continued to Wednesday June 2nd, 2010.

The judge seems to have clearly ignored the facts and the law in her ruling.  There also is the very coincidental fact that the Judge who ruled in my case is named Antonia Josefina Grullon Blandino.   Grullon may be a common last name in the Dominican Republic I am not sure and there may be no relation at all to Mr. Jose Grullon.

I have also requested that the Office of Children's issues review my case closely and in particular review the behavior of CONANI the Dominican Republic's central authority.  It is very clear that CONANI through it's representative Christian Maldonado has not been honoring their obligations under the Hague Convention.

Hi Fraud

I can't believe your bad luck!!

First Sandra takes your daughter away, then you are banned from seen her, then you are sentenced to prison, then you loose on the petition, then you say CONANI is against you and then the district attorney is against you also, and then the judge "seems to have clearly ignored the facts and the law in her ruling", now you are going to loose the appeal too...

Jeez Fraud it would seem that nothing has gone your way and that everybody is against you, man.

It may be because you have been lying all this time or may be because you are as stupid as you look, I don't know.

Apparently I have now been proven to be a fraud since a Dominican Judge has ruled against me.  I guess the question would be why did Kali's abductor, Sandra Zemialkowski, have to flee the jurisdiction of the courts in Massachusetts and go all the way to the Dominican Republic to prove that I am a fraud?

I agree with Gail. Can't you complain to the Police in DR? This is criminal intimidation at its worst. I don't care about him calling you names (neither should you). But taunting after each setback is just psychotic.

May be you said somewhere else....why is he saying you were sentenced to prison? Has the mother filed charges against you in DR? If so, are you fighting those (at least to the extent of getting an anticipatory bail in case you have to travel to DR to see or bring your daughter back)?

Just my 2 cents....go easy on making any statements that can be construed as criticizing judiciary. Unlike US, Courts in many countries can start suo motto contempt case against you. I know Indian Courts have done this against some people who criticized the judgments in the media.

This guy sounds a bit like a loose cannon to me.  That was my guess too, that they are in a relationship with one another; I have felt that way for a while.  Otherwise, what does this sicko have to gain by emailing such?  A real man wouldn't have to stoop so low.  Maybe he just plays attorney [in his head]?   :confused:

Dhanika - Are you forwarding these emails to your attorney?  Do they not have cyber crimes, harrassment charges, etc., in the DR?  He is making threats to you.  IMO...any mother that has to flee the country in order to obtain a positive ruling to maintain child custody obviously has a problem (unless there is clear evidence of abuse).  What does she have to hide that she couldn't have fought for custody in the US courts?  Not to mention, she has aligned herself with someone who is a loser/psycho to better herself?

Hello Anandad,

From what I understand Sandra ealier this year (or late last year) filed a complaint against me in the Dominican Republic.  Again CONANI was required to suspend all such hearings once they received my petition but they didnt do so.  It seems that a hearing was held sometime in February, 2010, without my prescence and more importantly without due process (even by Dominican law) as I was not properly served.

A default judgment was rendered against me in which an arrest warrant was issued for not paying any child support.

Basic summary of it, Sandra Zemialkowski abducts (or kidnaps) Kali Soleil Athukorala.  She then decides that she is owed child support ....

Here is Mr. Jose Grullon's latest effort for attention:

You asked:

"Apparently I have now been proven to be a fraud since a Dominican Judge has ruled against me.  I guess the question would be why did Kali's abductor, Sandra Zemialkowski, have to flee the jurisdiction of the courts in Massachusetts and go all the way to the Dominican Republic to prove that I am a fraud?"

I answer:

Your alegations, "have no probatory value", the Judge said. (read: you are a liar)

She didn't flee the jurisdiction , she actually DUMPED you for being an CENSORED and took HER daughter with her. As the judge ruled, neither the mother or the child are habitual residents of Massachussetts and you do not have any rights of custody and you have never supported your child and you have abused the mother of your child and you WILL go to jail for what you have done. Ja Ja Ja Ja Ja !!!!

Poor Fraud, you thought you could fool everybody with your lies and, and now your actions will be your own doom.

See you soon Fraud

Sincerely,

Of course the problem with Mr. Jose Grullon's logic are the very words of Sandra Zemialkowski, Kali Soleil Athukorala's abductor, given under oath:

http://www.bringkalihome.net/KalisAbductor/ExcerptsfromthedepositionofKalisabductor/tabid/77/Default.aspx#SandraWords (http://www.bringkalihome.net/KalisAbductor/ExcerptsfromthedepositionofKalisabductor/tabid/77/Default.aspx#SandraWords)

I also have tape recordings of the testimony she gave to the judge in Massachusetts in the custody proceedings in which you can actually hear Sandra Zemialkowski in her own voice.  I have not converted those to a digital format yet unfortunately.

To summarize:

Mr. Jose Grullon seems to want everyone to believe what he is saying.  I cannot know for sure if his claims of what Sandra is now saying are true since it is he who is make those claims but Sandra's own words are clear and everyone can make up their own mind.
