I, Sekkha Dhamma, as Prosecutor of IBEC and BTHR, acknowledge the hard and organized work carried out for the extensive compilation of Evidences in this case, in the same way, I appreciate the contribution of them for the analysis concerning the Party I represent. That said, with all due respect I appear to present:

Received the list of digital media that were collected, sorted and also confirmed in their order and context as Evidences by the Executive Secretary of IBEC and BTHR Master Yan Maitri-Shi, I give way to the Fourth Stage of the Procedure called “EVALUATION OF EVIDENCE” which is established in the Constitutive Act of IBEC and BTHR in order to know, establish, dictate and determine the Responsibility of the Accused for committing the above Charges. This accusation was made by the WORLD ASSOCIATION OF BUDDHISM in the field of Buddhist Ethics, an act that follows below:

 

EVALUATION OF EVIDENCES

FIRST EVALUATION.- By being the core of this procedural instance, it is necessary to point out the Means of Proof offered by the Executive Secretary of IBEC and BTHR Master Yan Maitri-Shi, and formally present them to the Jury for their knowledge. These Means of Proof are composed of 3 three Charges that validate the motivating Accusation of the current process. The above is denounced from the field of Buddhist Ethics. These Evidences come from digital audiovisual media in the public domain (mass media), e-mails and statements before our Tribunal, which are listed below:

Evidences:

 

Evidence number 1: Prize UNESCO 2015 to Dialogue, Coexistence and Peace granted to Ole Nydahl

 

Evidence number 2: Official Denounce that the Prize given to Nydahl is “Spurious”

Ethics Committee’s e-mail: “Dear UNESCO Association for the Promotion of Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue in Malaga, we are communicating to make an Official Notification that on the day of the date our organization, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, has concluded an ethical judgment against Ole Nydahl finding him “Responsible” for the crimes of “Discrimination” after an arduous analysis of a huge amount of evidences which are available upon request. Unfortunately, we have denounced the Award from your organization as spurious as it completely ignores the ideological past of the accused. We hope to resolve this as soon as possible, because otherwise your association would be endorsing the discriminatory statements of the accused Ole Nydahl, reason why we are also going to notify UNESCO about what happened. Attached we share the ethical Judgment of the Committee and Tribunal. Sincerely, International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights.” (July 31st, 2015).

 

 

Evidence number 3: Official Denounce of discrimination, censorship and political persecution

Ethics Committee’s e-mail: “Dear UNESCO Association for the Promotion of Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue in Malaga, please study this email. We communicate to you to inform that Mr. Ole Nydahl is using a prize of yours to justify acts of discrimination and political persecution. We have evidence of this because we have a notification of Mr. Nydahl’s lawyer. By using the UNESCO award, he not only has not apologized for his acts of discrimination against Muslims, but he is also attacking our right to freedom of expression, by eliminating one of our websites. During this 2015 we have done a lot for the Islamic community worldwide, denouncing Islamic genocide in Myanmar, criticizing terrorist movements as false Islam and denouncing Buddhists who engage in discriminatory acts or Islamophobia. This obviously has brought us problems, because Mr. Lama Ole Nydahl is attacking us with acts of censorship. We require you a change of attitude to show some spiritual genuineness (merciful and fraternal) because paradoxically Mr. Lama Ole Nydahl (which is publicly anti-Islamic) has received a “Unesco Prize for Interreligious Dialogue”. We have already communicated with you in the past about this issue and we have not even received an answer. If there is no response over the next 5 five days, your association will be complicit in these acts of Discrimination, Political Persecution, Censorship and Attack on Human Rights to Freedom of Expression that Mr. Nydahl is doing by using your prize. Sincerely, Board of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights”. (November 12, 2015).

 

 

Evidence n°4: Official communications with UNESCO in order to denounce complicity of the Association in Malaga

Ethics Committee’s e-mail: “Dear UNESCO. We are communicating with you in order to confirm a very important issue. A month ago, a Spanish institution called “asociación Unesco para la promoción del diálogo intercultural e interreligioso en Málaga” has delivered an Unesco award to Mr. Ole Nydahl.  The problem is that our organization, International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, has finalized an ethical judgment against Ole Nydahl find him “Responsible” of the charges of “Discrimination”. We have collected several proofs about it, which are available to UNESCO. Unfortunately, we have denounced the award by this association as spurious, since it completely ignores the ideological past of the accused. We hope you resolve it as soon as possible, since otherwise the UNESCO would be endorsing discriminatory statements of the accused Ole Nydahl. Attached we are sending you the ethical Judgment of the Committee and Tribunal. Best regards, International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights” (August 1st, 2015).

 

Ethics Committee’s e-mail: “Dear UNESCO, Please consider this email. We communicate with you requesting for help. During this 2015 we have done a lot for the Islamic community worldwide, denouncing genocide in Myanmar, criticizing terrorist movements as false Islam and denouncing Buddhists who engage in discriminatory acts or Islamophobia. This obviously has brought us some problems, since one of the Buddhist individual that most discriminate to Muslims (Mr. Lama Ole Nydahl) is attacking us with acts of censorship (he has deleted a web of our organization) with lawyers and legal claims due to our ethical work. We require your spiritual support because paradoxically Mr. Lama Ole Nydahl (which is publicly anti-Islamic) has received a “Unesco prize for Interreligious Dialogue”. This was delivered by a Spanish organization called “UNESCO Association for the promotion of intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue in Malaga”, and this is the reason why we are communicating with you. We have communicated with UNESCO for months but they ignore our messages. In addition, Mr. Lama Ole Nydahl is now using this award to further justify his attacks and discrimination acts. It is a shame. We believe that all religions and spiritual movement must unite for peace and against evil in the world. We hope you can help with the spiritual and compassionate support of UNESCO. Sincerely, Board of Administration of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights” (November, 2015)

 

 

Evidence number 5: Indifference and Complicity by the Association of Malaga in face of violations of Human Rights

Antonio Damián Requena: “Distinguished sirs if is it true that we did not acknowledge receipt of your previous missive we apologize, as it would be an unpardonable discourtesy on our part. We appreciate your missive and we wish ask you some remarks in order to your tranquility and ours. A) The award of our NGO Unesco Association is an award called Dialogue, Coexistence and Peace. They are not called Unesco Awards. B) The award is not given to Lama Ole alone, but also to his married couple, serving also as a deserved tribute to his wife sadly died. C) In the Parliament of religions within our association, Buddhists and Muslims dialogue and interact with total fluency and we have never detected attitudes of this kind. Best regards. Management team. As.UNESCOMALAGAPRODIALOGO. AntonioD.R.S. Civil Network for Unesco” (November 16th, 2015)

 

Ethics Committee’s e-mail: “Dear ones, we appreciate your response. First of all we clarify that Mr. Nydahl is publicly stating he received a UNESCO prize. Second, we clarify that we were communicating you for months and we submitted the evidences of discriminatory acts. Third, Mr. Nydahl is committing international violations to Human Rights; he is currently performing acts of censorship against us as from our investigation, which are political persecution and violation of freedom of expression. He has even accused us of communists. Please find the list of evidence below that we have collected a few months ago. If you do nothing at this, undoubtedly you will be complicit. Mr. Nydahl is also in violation of a large number of ethical Buddhist precepts, which is a task that concerns us in the International Buddhist Ethics Committee. We repeat if you do nothing you are being accomplices. I think you have the opportunity to be humble and self-critical and admit you have been arduously mistaken. We shared the evidences on the case of DISCRIMINATION that we have carried out about Mr. Nydahl (soon to be evaluated for other crimes against human rights): DISCRIMINATION AGAINST MUSLIMS AND AFRICAN PEOPLE (…) SEXISM, RIGHTIST IDEOLOGY and HOSTILITY (…) ANTI-ISLAM (…) SUPERFICIAL BUDDHISM (…) HOMOPHOBIA (…) ACCUSATION THAT ISLAM IS GENOCIDAL (…) MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS PROTESTING AGAINST OLE NYDAHL (…) NYDAHL’S FOLLOWERS JOINED WITH SKINHEADS AGAINST BUILDING A MOSQUE (…) CULT OF PERSONALITY”. (November 16th, 2015)

 

 

Evidence Number 6: Malaga Association’s Negation to justify and explain their wrong behavior

“Dear UNESCO Association for the promotion of intercultural and interreligious Dialogue in Malaga. First, we must say that you have not replied to our last email, which was very important because we submitted evidences of the grave Discrimination that Mr. Nydahl carries out against Islam and other groups. Second, attached we send you a formal Notification of our International Buddhist Ethics Committee in which we officially notify you that we have extended the charges, by sentencing Mr. Nydahl not only for Discrimination but also for other crimes against Buddhist Spirituality and Human Rights, such as the attack on freedom of expression and political persecution. Third, as we have already told you in three previous formal emails, your association is being accomplice of Discrimination provided it does not take the right measures, which is why we decided to give you a period of 5 days in order to answer about what measures you have taken or will take as from our communications. The statement may be in person, in writing or by telephone. Particularly we wish to know the following: Did you previously investigate Mr. Nydahl to give him the award, considering his anti-Islamic statements are public? Did Mr. Nydahl or Diamond Way make any donation before or after the award? Why is the reason you have not replied us when we have sent the evidence concerning Mr. Nydahl or when we have publicly repudiated the prize granted? Do you plan to cancel the award or maintain its validity despite these internationally proven questionings? How could you give an award of “Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue” to someone who has publicly stated that Islam is “genocidal” and it “can destroy the world”, and who compared Muhammad with Hitler? Fourth, the quality and content of the answer we receive will be an indicative as to whether there has been some responsibility by UNESCO Association on the charges of Complicity with Discrimination, False Intercultural Dialogue and False Interreligious Dialogue. We reiterate you have 5 days in order to issue your formal Declaration on these matters. Board of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee” (November 27th, 2015).-
