    Moving party: Defense Motion title: Motion to withdraw petition

Today at 10 AM Courtroom 2A the Hon. Judge Elizabeth Hill will preside over a Motion by Attorney Pezhman Pakmeshan to Destroy all records in the Zainali Jaffer case. On December 30, 2021 Opposition to Motion was filed.

Before the Superior Court of California County of San Mateo approves such a Motion, I’m asking that you Correct the Record and Synchronize it with the known Facts. The Odyssey Portal Court Records in the Zainali Jaffer case start with a criminal case being filed on 2/13/2018. The entire DATA from October 15, 2017 until February 13, 2018 is MISSING. That’s 4 months, Who caused that to happen?

Zainali Jaffer was arrested on October 15, 2017 by the Hillsborough Police Department for Attempted Murder of a child (his 3 year old son).

The Official State of California Court Record fails to mention San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe Filed a Criminal Case against Zainali Jaffer on October 17, 2017 and he was arraigned in Court on October 17, 2017. The Attempted Murder of a Child was NOT one of the charges.

The Official Court Records in the Zainali Jaffer case should be preserved until the PUBLIC can be sure there is no corruption in the State of California Courts.

Who is responsible for the DATA in the Odyssey Portal Court Records?

Who has access to that DATA?

I would recommend before ANY Judge rule on this Motion, they view the Hillsborough Police Department’s Body Worn Camera Video of the October 15, 2017 4:00AM arrest. Also check with Town of Hillsborough to see what their position on the Destruction of all records might be.

The last time San Mateo County News.com interviewed Hillsborough Police Chief Mark O’Connor on the Arrest of Zainali Jaffer he said he stands by ALL of the Charges. That includes the Attempted Murder of a Child.

Records should be Studied not Destroyed Article

The Public is invited to attend the San Mateo County Courts in PERSON. That is a Terrible Idea.

The Zain Jaffer case Records should be Studied not Destroyed.

By Michael G. Stogner

This case should be studied in every Law School in the United States of America.

On Monday January 3, 2022 at 10:00 AM the Hon. Judge Elizabeth M. Hill will hear a Motion to Destroy all of the Records and Body Worn Camera Video from the Hillsborough Police Department. This same motion was on calendar for December 20, 2021 where DDA Sharon Cho informed Judge Barbara Mallach that the District Attorney’s Office had ISSUES with this and filed a Motion to Continue which was Granted.

These Records have been sealed from the very beginning, the Public has never had access to these records. Why? Here is the Very Little information that we do know.

Hi Emily,
Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor:
DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. INSTRUCTOR FURTHER ADMITTED THERE IS NO JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT INVOLVES INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER, AND THAT THE PRACTICE SESSION S WITH D AND HIS SON NEVER INVOLVED ANY KIND OF TRASH TALK OR LANGUAGE SUCH AS “PUSSY.”

Remember John Doe was Zain Jaffer’s 3 year old son.

Steve Wagstaffe Article e-mail to Media fails to mention his intention to Dismiss Entire Case.

The Odyssey Portal Superior Court Records for People vs. Zainali Jaffer 17NF012415A shows this criminal case was first filed on February 13, 2018. That is 14 days after Steve Wagstaffe’s e-mail to reporter Emily. How does that happen?

Was Steve Wagstaffe’s e-mail to Emily Mibach a Violation of the Court Order to Seal the Preliminary Hearing Transcripts?

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe fails to Mention Motion to Dismiss the Entire Zain Jaffer case.

The Zain Jaffer case was dismissed July 2, 2018. That is a fact.

Prosecutions are implicitly limited to district attorneys per California Penal Code § 739, which describes the “duty” of district attorneys to file charges after a judge finds grounds that an offense has been committed. A judge did find that in the Zain Jaffer case.

So what really happened?

San Mateo County should Audit this case and determine if the legal process was followed. He was arrested for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son, why did that disappear so fast. Did CPS & APS follow protocol?

The decision to dismiss the entire Zain Jaffer case must have been made before this Media Update of Cases of Interest was sent out. What date was it decided to dismiss the case? What date was the motion to dismiss prepared? What date was the motion to dismiss filed with the court? The reason I ask these questions is that Zain Jaffer read a prepared statement in court written before hand by a public relations firm, so they all knew this was going to happen.
