Earlier this year I was able to obtain, from contacts in Kenya, a tangible (paper) certified-copy (Jan. 16, 2014) of a birth certificate which was originally issued in the year 1963 by the Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa, British Protectorate of Kenya for a male child with name Russell Leslie Oppenheim who was born on May 13th, 1963:
On or about the 4th day of February 2014 while I was physically present in the Dominican Republic, the National Police (Policia Nacional) raided my home in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic with an arrest warrant for extradition to Kenya on criminal charges of allegedly bribing government officials in Kenya.
I wasn’t home and it should be noted that I spent a significant percentage of February 2014 in the Barahona Province of the Dominican Republic. I was subsequently arrested on or about the 20th day of February 2014 in the Barahoma Province of the Dominican Republic.
On or about the 24th day of February 2014 I was moved from the Barahoma Province to a jail/prison/penitentiary named La Victoria which is located in the Santo Domingo Province of the Dominican Republic.
I was released on bond of 250,000 Dominican Pesos (which is approximately $5800 US Dollars) earlier this week on Monday. The bond was paid, for which I am supremely and immensely thankful, by my friend and compatriot Bruce Steadman.
I am consulting with a law firm in the Dominican Republic to assist me in legally contesting and opposing extradition to Kenya. I will be disclosing documents which are direct components of this litigation in a series of WOBIK blog reports, including today’s report. The following document was recently made available to me and, as far as I currently know, is one of the earliest (though not the earliest) documents in the extradition, to Kenya, case:
The foregoing document, issued by the Policia Nacional, was redacted before it was made available to me.
I also want to note that said document contains a circular shaped seal of some type which did not appear, apart from a small and barely perceptible segment of it, when I made a scan of the said document.
I took a photograph of the said document and am providing that photograph, adjacent to the left, in order to show the circular seal on the document.
