Justice, Freedom & Finding Amanraya

If you know my daughter tell her I love her and that I never left her. Her daddy was Taken.


God Protect My Daughter's Country

Australia is the only democracy without some
form of a Bill of Rights for its citizens, and whose
parliament recognizes no guaranteed rights for
any person. Due process is rarely afforded while
miscarriages of justice are the norm. Australia is
and has been the 'indicator nation' whose fate -
for better or worse - will be the fate
of all other free nations worldwide.

Brief - Accused, Tried & Convicted in a Foreign Country:

dummy1 My Name is John Victor Ramses, US citizen, who married an Australian woman in 1999 and resided in Australia throughout the marriage.

On 1 July 2010 I was accused of sexual assault by my wife shortly following a divorce in order to prevent me from seeking access rights to my ten year old daughter via Family Court (Australia).

On that accusation, I was arrested off the street, charged and jailed in Hakea Maximum Remand Prison. No investigation.

I pleaded not guilty, and had significant evidence to prove the accusations had been fabricated, and for what motive, which was to prevent me from winning the right to have my daughter in my home country for holidays.

Police didn't care about seeing my evidence because, in Australia, they are "assigned to the complainant" and helping me would be "a confict of interest" (Quote). I was told by the officer that any evidence I had would have to wait for trial, which could be a year away. I had demanded my right to due process, to which the arresting officer informed me, "You have no rights in Australia". I was shocked by his words and then frightened in a country I had loved as I love my own country.

I had spent the next full year awaiting trial -- utterly alone now in Australia with no family or support. And knowing not where my precious daughter was,.

Legal Aid funding for legal representation had been denied twice. Professional lawyers wanted between $35,000 and $50,000 to begin, which I did not have. I was a US citizen now utterly alone in Australia following divorce of my wife of 11 years. Legal Aid is only granted upon a plea of guilty.

As trial approached, I became more and more anxious, indeed, terrified that I would be made to stand trial alone without counsel or legal knowledge. I both wrote and phoned my US consulate several times and once wrote to the US Ambassador to intervene on my behalf to request Australia to grant me legal counsel for trial. The ambassador never responded. The consul informed me on each occassion that they "could not get involved in the legal matters of a host country", not even to ensure fair treatment according to international Law. So I was left abandoned without any legal advice or hope.

As a result, I was made to stand trial in Western Australia for five terrible days without any legal knowledge on any aspect of trial proceedings, rules, and law of evidence. It was unbelievable to me that I would have been subjected to such abuse.

Australia has no Bill of Rights. There is no guarantee of due process or right to counsel for indigent persons. Australia, as I would learn, has a nasty history of putting people to trial without legal representation (Carmen Lawrence, 2006). There is no right to evidence or witnesses.

During trial I was prevented from cross-examining the complainant. Thus, no challenge to her testimony / evidence before the jury was never made by me. I was prevented from putting in certain relavant evidence while other vital evidence had been deliberately withheld by the prosecution.

As heartache and stress mounted, I at last suffered and mental and emotional break down and was unable to function through the remaining two days of the FIVE-DAY trial.

Although I had pleaded with the judge routinely regarding my ineptness, and although the judge knew I was wholly incapable of defending myself in a foreign court and trial, said judge still allowed the trial to conclude in a "conviction".

*** Please see my YouTube video where I read key sections of my transcript from that sinister 'trial'.

I was sentenced to six and a half years in an Australian prison - the number of years until my daughter turned 18 (when the State would no longer concern themselve with her). The accusation, bogus trial and the sentence were meant to serve just that purpose - keep me from being a part of my daughter's life.

On 31 December 2017, after 6 1/2 years in Acacia Prison and 1 year prior on bail, I was deported from Australia back to my home country, The United States of America, landing in my home-town of Salt Lake City on New Year's Day 2018.

I had learned that I was now required to register for the US Sex Offender's Registry. Australia had stipulated that I remain on the registry 15 years (although the US requires only 10 years). I've contacted numerous lawyers since returning home to help me address the Australian miscarriage of justice in our US court, but so far, only rejection - if they reresponded at all.

Now 10 + years since that terrible arrest and trial, I and my family here in my home country are experiencing severe hardship and suffering - due solely to the sinister, unlawful treatment I had endured in Western Australia.

We are hoping for media attention on this matter and the question of whether foreign convictions can be accepted by the US government where due process had not been afforded.

We are also seeking legal help by an appeal lawyer in Australia to appeal the Australian conviction, whereby putting an end to the suffering I and my family in America are currently enduring without resolve.

Alternatively, we are hoping to find a US lawyer who will put this case to a US court on the matter of whether such an inadequate trial as occurred in Australia should be acceptable according to US standards and our Constitution.

In my view, being punished in the United States on the basis of a coviction in a foreign country with inferior legal system and protocols in direct violation of both my constitutional rights as well as public expectancy. Treaty be damned.


My Constitutional Right:

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America forbids any loss of liberty, or punishment, to any citizen of the United States, without first applying reasonable due process to determine guilt in an alleged crime.

Therefore, before any US citizen can be placed on any Registry in the United States, as a result of a 'conviction in a foreign country, (in particular, Australia) it must first be determined by a US court of law whether said foreign proceedings, investigation and trial was, by US law, fair and just. Clearly, mine was far from it. To ensure such protocols for the future is my goal.

In my case, there is signifacnt evidence to the contrary, as well as evidence demonstrating that members of my Australian wife's wealthy, infuential family 'pulled strings' to ensure that I would not be acquitted.

Under no circumstance of the Law and Constitution in the United States would the 'trial' I was subjected to in Australia be considered reasonal nor capable of sustaining a 'conviction'.

Since returning to the US, I have seeking legal representation here in the United Stated to put my case before a US court to determine the adequacy of the Australian proceedings and trial where I hope a ruling will decalre the Australian trial unfair and inadequate. So far no one will help.

Alternatively, I would appreciate direction and assistance with putting my case in myself.

Such a rulng by a US court would be cause to remove me from the strict Registry requirements as well as then allowing me to pursue an appeal to the High Court of Australia to overturn the conviction.
