Regarding the statements offered as proof and which constitute the aforementioned offenses (case that does not occupy nor is our business to know or jurisdictionally decide in this matter on our Part), there is no objection, disqualification or invalidation of the digital content by the Party I represent, since they are digital media coming from reliable sources and that were also declared and published at that time formally and openly, of which there is no doubt about their authenticity or truthfulness.-


THIRD EVALUATION.- Based on what was exposed, published and declared in the media and which are now presented as digital Evidence for this case by the Executive Secretary of IBEC and BTHR, Master Yan Maitri-Shi, such proofs are determined by the Party I represent as Prosecutor of the IBEC and BTHR as LEGITMATE AND VALID, which support and confirm the Indictment presented by the World Association of Buddhism to RANIA HAMMOUD concerning Offenses of INSULTS, THREATS, DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE PROFESSIONAL ETHICS, FALSE ZEN AND FALSE SPIRITUALITY, committed against the very Spirituality.-

In such a situation, there began the Fifth Stage of the Procedure called “Judgment”, in which it is set the term of 5 five days to the Jury members in order to decide whether RANIA HAMMOUD is “Innocent” or “Responsible” for the offenses of INSULTS, THREATS, DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE PROFESSIONAL ETHICS, FALSE ZEN AND FALSE SPIRITUALITY concerning the Evidences which were provided, accepted and valued in this writing.-
