Exactly one year and one day after the arrest of Julio Poch. The Foundation Justice for Julio Poch (F.J.J.P) was founded to expedite and facilitate justice in the case of Julio Poch.
Julio formerly a Captain at Transavia was to make his last flight before going on his pension. His wife and son accompanied him during his final flight for Transavia to Spain. What was planned to be a special occasion turned into the arrest of Julio. He was hand-cuffed in front of the camera’s and his name and address published by the media for the whole world to see.
That is how Julio’s trial or rather ordeal was started. Without a shred of evidence that he ever took part in the so-called “death-flights” (Spanish: vuelos de la muerte) . Wednesday 22 September 2010 marks the day that Julio will have been detained for one year. In our view this has been done without balanced consideration of the rights and interests of the relevant parties. His detention may continue for years to come.
Our point of view is that there needs to be an intervention when people are being robbed of their freedom without sufficient evidence. Everyone should be considered not guilty until proven guilty. Julio Poch should be no exception.
Currently his legal representative is Prof. dr. G.G.J. Knoops. Professor Knoops is convinced that a reasonable Judge should not be willing to bring to trial a person on the basis of the evidence currently available. Professor Knoops is prepared to utilize all legal ways and means to free Julio Poch.
