Based on information sent to us by some of the Oregon 16 defendants, as well
as statements by lawyers close to the cases, and looking at the proceedings
at the 2nd of June 2006 bail hearing for Nathan Block and Joyanna Zacher,
ELP is removing Chelsea Gerlach from our prisoner list. We are also
withdrawing our support for Suzanne Savoie (who is currently on bail).
Chelsea Gerlach and Suzanne Savoie have both been named by some of their
co-defendants, as well as by some of the lawyers, as cooperating with the
authorities which has included making statements against others.
We have no yet confirmed the full extent of their cooperation with the
authorities (and there may be others who they have named), but we have
confirmed that both Gerlach and Savoie have made statements against Nathan
Block and Joyanna Zacher.
ELP will naturally release more information about this as our investigation
continues. In the meantime should anyone have any information about the
full extent of Gerlach and Savoie's cooperation with the authorities, please
contact ELP as soon as possible.
