OT : Tremblay column on Stastny...

Sorry, don't have the time to comment... I'd just like everybody to read this. I'm also confident somebody would translate. The second-to-last paragraph wraps it up really well...

Stasny puts his security at high risk doing that. He has balls, that's for sure. Like znk said it is really heavy stuff.

Hope he won't be found dead. I'd be scared to death to do that. It's great tho to see he stands against these former fraudsters. Takes a lot of courage ...

Conspiracy, Conflics of Interest, Secret Services, Spying...

I don't know what to say about that. I do not have any opinion, nor I am not unsensible to what Stastny says.
Note that Stastny is a member of the European Parliament and it must be his role to act like this. I encourage him to act and speak like this. This morning, the CKAC Show (Sports du Lit) had an interview with the president of the IIHF, saying that Stastny should put over any reasonable doubt kindof evidence supporting what he says. He said that as of right now, it seems to be a personal dispute, not a conspiracy.

So... who tells the truth?

Well does it surprise you that some people got rich & powerful by keeping the communism regime in place in the old days? Does it surprise you that some of these people find themselves in places where they can still use their authority to pull the strings?

I find that Peter is indeed courageous to go publicly like this to stand for what he believes, I also think that he has little proof to go to war with. What he says might be true... but what effect does it have. It's one think to say that the man is an ex-STB member but another thing to proove it and even a bigger one to relate it in some ways to any atrocity... I mean this situation is in some way similar to Kasparov going against Poutine and his successor Medvedev

That fight Peter is involved in is a BIG one indeed and I'm not sure he will win it... at least he's trying to bruing some international attention to the situation.
