A statement written by a person identified as Paul Ceglia has surfaced, and it suggests the American fugitive is planning to sue the United States for Human Rights violations.
"I'll be delighted to be bringing this suit in international court where the completely biased media coverage I have often received in the US, will be forced to discuss the real issues in this case, rather than to create more tabloid stories that focus on me buying beer for my high school classmates 25 years ago or that I was caught after picking mushrooms in a field in Texas in the 90's," the letter states.
The 28-paragraph letter, published on the Americans for Innovation website, indicates Ceglia is in good health. It confirms earlier reports from Bloomberg and Sky News that he is seeking political asylum in an unknown country.
7 Eyewitness News could not independently verify that this statement is indeed written by the Wellsville, N.Y. man.
The letter goes into detail about Ceglia's innocence regarding the Facebook fiasco that resulted in forgery charges against him.
Allegations of collusion among the judges who have presided over Ceglia's various proceedings are also strewn throughout the statement.
In 2014, U.S. District Judge Richard Arcara dismissed a lawsuit filed by Ceglia against Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Ceglia accuses Arcara and other judges of being "substantial" Facebook shareholders, and maintains he helped Zuckerberg create Facebook.
"I also funded Facebook's start and developed the search engine that runs it," the letter says.
"All this is ignored along with decades of a track record demonstrating my integrity to misconstrue age old facts into tabloid gossip."
