American lawyer Larry Klayman and his advocacy group Freedom Watch along with Texas company Buzz Photos have filed a $20 trillion lawsuit against the Chinese government, Chinese army, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Director of Wuhan Institute of Virology Shi Zhengli and Chinese army’s Major General Chen Wei for releasing coronavirus in the form of a biological weapon to suppress the competition of other countries in the economy market.
The plaintiffs have sought $20 trillion, which is a bigger amount than China’s GDP, claiming coronavirus is the result of a biological weapon prepared by the Chinese authorities.
They accused China of aiding and abetting death, provision of material support to terrorists, conspiracy to cause injury and death of US citizens, negligence, wrongful death, and assault and battery.
Various comment on social media by users all over the works allege that the virus was released from the Wuhan Virology Institute. The plaintiffs also stated that the COVID-19 virus was “designed” by China to kill mass populations.
Whether China could be punished if this claim comes out to be true remain a big question on the mind if the people. However, it could be recalled that Biological weapons were outlawed in 1925 and hence such a biological weapon is a terrorist-related weapon of mass destruction, the lawsuit mentioned.
The American group cites multiple media reports that said that there was only one microbiology lab in China that handled advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus in Wuhan. To cover up, the plaintiffs alleged, China linked statements on coronavirus with national security protocols.
The lawsuit stated that while coronavirus is slow-acting and slow-spreading to be used against a country’s military, “it was designed to be used against the general population of one or more of China’s perceived enemy nations, such as the United States.”
The American plaintiffs also asked for a jury trial against the Chinese defendants.
As at the time of filing this report, the United State of America is yet to release a report on this and so far they are not blaming China but the fact that the virus that emanated from Wuhan is yet to get to Beijing and Shanghai, the capital and main economic territory of China respectively make China a suspect.
