Katherine “KteeO” Olejnik was taken into federal custody today for refusing to cooperate with the grand jury. She is the second subpeanut to be jailed for refusing to testify.
Please write to KteeO!! She is specifically interested in news and information about the Basque region, and reading material related to linguistics and social anthropology.
Katherine Olejnik #42592-086
P.O. Box 13900
Seattle, WA 98198
This is the statement she wrote explaining why she is refusing to cooperate:
For me choosing to resist a grand jury is about humanity – I cannot and will not say something that could greatly harm a person’s life, and providing information that could lead to long term incarceration would be doing that.
For me choosing to resist a grand jury is about freedom of speech and association – I cannot and will not be a party to a McCarthyist policy that is asking individuals to condemn each other based on political beliefs.
The reasons above are why I am choosing to not comply. I apologize to those in my life on whom my incarceration is going to be a burden, and I thank you for understanding my decision.
For those unaware the folks being subpoenaed are being incarcerated for refusing to answer questions about others’ political beliefs.
In Solidarity With All Those Resisting the Grand Jury,
