Thu May 17 2012 (Updated 05/20/12)At Least Two People Subpoenaed to Federal Grand Jury
Thu May 17 2012 (Updated 05/20/12)New Grand Jury Subpoenas Related to UC Santa Cruz Arson Investigation
At least two individuals have been subpoenaed to a federal grand jury that appears to be investigating a fire set at the home of a UC Santa Cruz animal researcher in 2008. There was no claim of responsibility for the fire, and there is no evidence activists were responsible. Nonetheless, the incident became the impetus for the "AETA 4" case, which saw the indictment of four Bay Area activists before charges were dismissed in 2010.
One of the people subpoenaed, José Palafox, said, "I was approached by two FBI agents at the BART Station at 19th and Broadway in Oakland. They asked my name, identified themselves as Carrie and Matt from the FBI, and served me a subpoena to testify before a federal Grand Jury. They informed me that I had been served and left without asking me any other questions….
"I know nothing about the Santa Cruz action but believe this is a political prosecution and part of a government attempt to gather information on activists, specifically involved in the animal rights movement."
In addition to Palafox, at least one other person has been subpoenaed, and another received a visit from the FBI.
