Bill to Sue China Over Covid Revived

Published

on

 

Republicans in Congress have renewed the call to allow American victims of the Covid pandemic to sue the Chinese government for the outbreak that most likely began as a leak from a Wuhan gain-of-function research lab. The new bill, “Compensation for the Victims of State Misrepresentations to the World Health Organization Act of 2023”, seeks to bypass legislation passed in 1976 which “establishes criteria as to whether a foreign sovereign nation is immune from the jurisdiction of the U.S. courts – federal or state.”

Breitbart: Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Michael Burgess, MD (R-TX), unveiled a bill last week that would give Americans the right to sue the Chinese Communist Party for damages after it allowed the coronavirus to spread around the world.

“With people finally recognizing that COVID-19 more than likely came from the Wuhan lab – something I raised from the very beginning – it is outrageous that no one has been held to account,” Smith the chair of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, said in an exclusive quote to Breitbart News on Sunday.

“China’s Communist leaders knew they had a deadly and highly contagious virus on their hands, and they attempted to hide its origins and imposed their malign influence on the World Health Organization to echo their false narrative,” he said.

The bill would waive the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act and allow Americans the right to sue the CCP for monetary damages, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property as a result of the CCP trying to hide the virus outbreak from the World Health Organization and the international community, and allowing to spread.

The virus, which was first detected in Wuhan, China, killed over 1.1 million across the U.S. and at least 6.8 million throughout the entire world.

The bill is similar to Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorist Act (JASTA), which was passed by Congress in 2016 and allowed the family of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia for aiding and abetting the terrorists involved in the attack.

“The American people – who have suffered enormously from this virus – deserve to have their day in court to press the Chinese Communist regime on its reckless misinformation campaign, which hampered critical efforts that would have mitigated the virus’ spread and would have prevented so much pain and loss of life,” Smith said. End Breitbart.

In a rare display of bipartisan politics, the House unanimously passed a bill last week that would require the director of national intelligence to declassify all of the data collected investigating the origins of Covid.

This is a developing story.
