Please note that I do not believe that I should of ever been extradited from Brazil, as the only sentence I could receive was a MANDATORY LIFE SENTENCE WITHOUT PAROLE, which I received after a jury trial and overturned on direct appeal. The Brazilian Constitution clearly states within Title II, Fundamental Rights and Guarantees, Chapter I, Individual and Collective Rights and Duties, ARTICLE 5, XLVII(b) "THERE SHALL BE NO SENTENCE OF LIFE", as the Brazilian Constitution consolidates ARTICLE 75 of the Brazilian Criminal Code which limits the MAXIMUM PRISON SENTENCE TO THIRTY (30) YEARS. See, STATE vs. PANG, 940 P2d 1293, 1352 (Washington, 1997.

I believe a potential settlement from $150 to $500 million plus costs and attorney fees against Brazil is very realistic. See, SLEVIN vs. BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS FOR THE COUNTY OF DONA ANA, 934 F. Supp. 2d 1282, 1285 (Dist. of New Mexico, January 8, 2013)("Next, the jury found the Detention Center liable for the torts of FALSE IMPRISONMENT .... Finally, the jury fixed the amount of compensatory damages at $15.5 MILLION, to include $500,000 FOR EACH MONTH THAT PLAINTIFF WAS INCARCERATED, plus an additional $1 million for each year since Plaintiff's release from custody). Lambros was arrested in Brazil in 1991.
My research reveals that 28 U.S.C. §1605(a)(5)(B) DOES NOT exclude the following claims from the FSIA §1605(a)(5) tort exemption:
5. Infliction of mental or emotional distress.
6. False Imprisonment.
7. False Arrest.
8. Conspiracy to aid and abet false arrest and false imprisonment.
The facts and legal research I have compiled in this proposed action appears to present a favorable risk/reward opportunity to your firm in billable hours, that should not require substantial resources in brief preparation, litigation and favorable settlement and collections of award.
Please forward the financial resources needed to proceed in this action and/or most preferred pro bono/contingent fee contract.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and forwarding of information about your firm's FSIA practice and approach to client service in this matter.
