Matt DeHart Legal Defense Fund

Monday 1 December 2014

Tor Ekeland P.C. is providing pro bono representation to Matt DeHart, a 30 year old U.S. Citizen and former U.S. airman with Top Secret clearance who the U.S. government detained at the U.S. Canadian border on an alleged “espionage matter.

While detained he was given a thorazine I.V. without his consent and repeatedly interrogated about Anonymous, Wikileaks, and a file allegedly detailing an FBI investigation of post-9/11 domestic criminal activity by a U.S. intelligence agency that appeared on a server he was an admin on.

It all started with Chanology.

According to statements DeHart gave Adrian Humphreys of the National Post, he participated in Project Chanology, the original “moralfag” action which pitted Anonymous against the Church of Scientology. There were many aspects to the operation, but the most famous was the adoption of the Guy Fawkes mask, since become inextricably associated with the hacktivist collective. The statements DeHart gave were corroborated by operation founder Gregg Housh, although he could not specifically identify participants, having known them only via pseudonyms.

Chanology was DeHart’s first taste of activism, and he liked it. Getting deeper into the hacktivist scene, he eventually ran a server on which some files which may or may not have been destined for WikiLeaks resided.

This whole matter revolves around a file that appeared in the fall of 2009 on a TOR server Matt was a co-sys admin. People speculate that it was enroute to Wikileaks, although I have not seen any confirmation of this fact. The file was unencrypted for the first two days on the server. According to published reports, it’s an FBI investigative file of domestic criminal activity by the CIA.

Matt was in jail in the US from Aug 2010 to May 2012. In Canada from Apr 2013 to Sept 2013 & then Apr 2014 till now. Over 30 months. All this based on just an indictment. He has not been convicted of anything.

He has been held in maximum security conditions in the US with convicted criminals. In Canada he is in max security with immigration detainees. Additionally he was out on bond in the US for approx 1 year and then 7 months in Canada on very strict 24 hour GPS monitoring.
