16 March 1998 BY FAX FINAL STATEMENT TO THE COURT
May It Please the Court:
In civilized countries it is the custom to allow a defendant to make a final statement to the court prior to sentencing.
The Nuremberg Trial transcript is 14,638 pages long in German alone, much of it in small print. I have read this material, and evidently you have not. I have provided approximately 1,000 exact references to both the American and German transcripts.
The pagination and format are not the same; it can be almost impossible to find certain things in the German, even if you know where it is in the English, and vice versa. I have also read the British transcript, which is much shorter. There are many discrepancies. All references were completely revised and corrected prior to printing; all page numbers are given twice, according to the German and American transcripts.
I defy you, or anyone else, to find one single error in any of the references quoted in NICHT SCHULDIG IN NÜRNBERG.
I refuse to be dictated to by people who have not read this material, and who have no idea what it contains.
I refuse to be deprived of a basic right which belongs to everyone else in the world as a matter of course: the right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
I retract nothing; I regret nothing. I fear nothing.
I stand by the contents of my letters to the court dated 7 January, 10 March, 1 July, 1 September, 5 September, and 7 November 1997.
I stand by the contents of my letter to Christian Ude.
If you fine me, I will not pay it; if you put me in prison, I will go on hunger strike like Bobby Sands.
I defy your authority and I refuse to comply with any order to do anything.
I am not afraid of you; I fear the future if I do nothing. That is all.
Faithfully, CARLOS W. PORTER
