Fact Check: Dr. Anthony Fauci NOT Charged With Murder By A 'Grand Jury' About Alleged COVID Crimes Moot Court

Did a grand jury charge Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, with murder? No, that's not true: No legally recognized grand jury has been convened to indict Fauci on any charges. The fake court proceeding previously identified itself as the "Grand Jury of the World Criminal Court." No government recognizes the "World Criminal Court." It is a fictional organization and not the real International Criminal Court, located in The Hague, Netherlands.

The claim appeared in an article (archived here) published by Before It's News on February 16, 2022, titled "Fauci Charged With Murder - GRAND JURY - Dr. Bryan Ardis | The Law | Before It's News." It opened:

GRAND JURY - DAY 3: Dr. Bryan Ardis Presents Compelling Evidence for Indicting Dr. Anthony Fauci for Willful Medical Homicide.

To the people that seem to be confused about the purpose of this grand jury process. This is not 'fake' and it is not simply a PR exercise.

This is being developed so the evidence is on record and indictments can be issued so that local people around the world can do either private or public prosecutions in their own courts. These courts could be existing courts or we the peoples common law courts.

In common law countries like the USA, we have the right to do 'private prosecutions'. This means we don't need to police to be involved to take people to court. However a case of this size would usually be cost/time/logistically prohibitive.

So this amazing team of experts, lawyers and judge are providing the entire prosecution model including format, evidence, expert testimony etc. so this can be cut and paste across courts globally with all of the evidence needed for convictions. If the current legal system fails and doesn't bring justice this is especially important as we the people can begin private prosecutions at a very low cost. This is a VERY smart approach.

This is what the BEFORE IT'S NEWS article looked like on February 18, 2022:

Not constitutional

In a February 18, 2022, Messenger message, Vic Hill, a Georgia trial lawyer, told Lead Stories American citizens can't set up their own "private prosecutions":

In the Federal system, this is forbidden pursuant to the Constitution. In the states, some states 'allow' it and some don't. When it is allowed, it is usually in the context of the state prosecuting attorney appointing a special prosecutor who is not a state employee. ... We have the Constitution that is supreme over common law.

Video 'testimony'

The Before It's News article includes a video of more than an hour of "testimony" before the fake grand jury, which also goes by the name the "Grand Jury The Court of Public Opinion." Their logo appears in the upper right-hand corner of the video. The "witness" on what's being called "Day 3" of the "MODEL PROCEEDING" is Bryan Ardis, a doctor of chiropractic who also sells an acne treatment system from a website called Ardis Labs.

With those qualifications, Ardis lays out his lengthy case against Fauci, focusing on his endorsement of the drug remdesivir. At 7:35 into the video, he said this about Fauci, chief White House medical advisor:

The correlation in publicized ... deadly side effects of remdesivir, in my opinion, based on the data I can show you all, is that the hospital protocols which includes remdesivir ... it's published combined side effects is the No. 1 cause of the death of all COVID-19 hospitalized individuals.

The National Institute of Health's COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel said remdesivir is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat COVID in high-risk patients. It's only supposed to be administered in a hospital setting.

No stats

In a February 18, 2022, email to Lead Stories, Jeff Lancashire, a public affairs officer with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this about the broad-spectrum antiviral medication:

NCHS does not have any data on deaths related to remdesivir.

The background

Lead Stories previously debunked a claim about this same fake grand jury titled "Fact Check: There Is NO International Court 'Grand Jury' Case About Alleged COVID Crimes By Public Health Officials, Others."

The docket of the International Criminal Court at the Hague lists no such case against the defendants named by Reiner Fuellmich, the lawyer making the fake opening statement from Day 1 of the "grand jury." Fuellmich is an attorney licensed in California with an office address in Göttingen, Germany. Fuellmich's law firm's website says he practices consumer protection law and is prosecuting a crimes against humanity case against public health officials and others who have urged vaccination against COVID.

A spokesperson for the International Criminal Court at the Hague, when answering inquiries for a prior debunk of a Fuellmich claim, emailed Lead Stories in December 2021 that outside lawyers like Fuellmich have no standing to act as prosecutors in the multinational court. They added that the court can only prosecute individuals and not institutions or states. The spokesperson said there is no case such as the one Fuellmich describes.

Fuellmich says, in a February 6, 2022, BitChute video (archived here), that the "grand jury" will hear evidence of crimes against humanity committed by Fauci; German virologist Professor Christian Drosten, M.D.; World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus; Microsoft founder and vaccinology philanthropist Bill Gates; COVID vaccine manufacturer Pfizer Inc., and multinational investment management corporation BlackRock Inc.
