US lawyer Larry Kleiman filed a lawsuit against the PRC government. The drafters of the lawsuit claim that SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is a “biological weapon” and accuse China of using it. The amount of claims is $ 20 trillion; its text is published on the website of the law firm Klemchuk LLP.
The plaintiffs, besides Kleiman, are the conservative human rights organization Freedom Watch and the Texas photo studio Buzz Photos. It specializes in school photography and sports photography.
The defendants in the lawsuit include the People’s Republic of China, the People’s Liberation Army of China and General Chen Wei, as well as the Wuhan Virology Institute and its director Shi Zhengli.
Plaintiffs accuse China of creating and deliberately or accidentally spreading a coronavirus that has gone beyond the Chinese province of Hubei and infiltrated the United States.
The virus, according to the drafters of the lawsuit, is a “biological weapon of mass destruction”, and therefore the actions of the PRC are a violation of international law.
The company Buzz Photos, as stated in the lawsuit, due to the cancellation of school graduations in quarantine, suffered significant losses, was forced to dismiss employees and was on the verge of bankruptcy.
The plaintiffs indicted the PRC on six counts, which include material support for terrorists, a conspiracy to harm or even kill US citizens, and negligence and contribute to the risk of death or serious harm to the health of US citizens.
The lawsuit was filed on March 17.
