As ENRC Pushes For Info From HarperCollins Author Burgis Two Pier Press Freedom Shown

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 18 – Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation is pursuing information from, through a subpoena against, HarperCollins and author Tom Burgis.

  On January 18, Martin Luther King's Day in the US, ENRC made a filing in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York asserting that it has "been the victim of a years-long smear campaign... giving rise to an interminable and harassing investigation by the U.K. Serious Frauds Office." 

 On the other hand, Burgis has written of what he says is an ongoing FBI investigation of Springfield, Missouri deaths.   Meanwhile RCFP, which has yet to act on more mundane but pervasive closures and sealing and denials to the press in the SDNY, says "the subpoena should be quashed because of its impact on newsgathering. Section 1782 prohibits discovery that would violate the reporter’s privilege. Section 1782 affords the court discretion to deny discovery because of its impact on First Amendment rights, including reporter-source confidentiality. Permitting ENRC obtain confidential newsgathering materials in this case — in circumvention of well-established protections for reporters’ sources and work product — would have a severe effect on the ability of the news media to investigate matters of public concern, now and into the future.”  

The case is In Re: Ex Parte Application Pursuant to 28 USC 1782 For Leave To Take Discovery For Use in Foreign Proceedings, 20-mc-312 (Ramos)
