We are pleased to announce the dismissal of the remaining two charges against James Hunter. All charges have been resolved by either acquittal or dismissal, bringing to an end over two years of struggle against politically motivated false accusations.

It is our hope that those responsible for abusing their authority and bringing these accusations against Mr. Hunter are held accountable for their actions.
