KEAAU, Hawaii – The Oahu attorney accusing numerous Hawaii Island circuit court judges of “war crimes” held a press conference in Puna on Thursday.

Speaking from the home of Kale Gumapac in Hawaiian Paradise Park, Dexter Kaiama made news headlines earlier that same day, claiming that the Criminal Investigation Section of the Hawaii County Police Department was looking into the judges for allegedly denying defendants a fair and regular trial in foreclosure and ejectment proceedings at the courthouses in Hilo and Kona.

Kaiama says a number of banks who initiated the complaints for foreclosure and ejectment are also being investigated.

But the Hawaii County Police Department says that’s not the case. The department said in a prepared statement that “the representations as to the Hawai’i Police Department’s involvement in the investigation of alleged war crimes are inaccurate. The Police Department is conducting no such investigation.”

Kaiama provided a large number of documents to support the validity of his claims. At the heart of the situation is the work of Hawaii County Police Officer Leland Pa, who began to look into the war crimes complaints and was subsequently placed “on leave without pay while under internal investigation for carrying out his duties”, Kaiama says.

The foundation of his argument begins with the Treaty of Annexation, or as Kaiama says, the lack thereof.

We will be sharing the documents that Kaiama has provided to Big Island Video News over the coming days. We will also attempt to follow up with some of the other agencies involved to see if these claims can be further corroborated.
