 Attn: Gilad Erdan
Minister of Public Security

Subject: Usurpation of power in the State of Israel by the Police forces

Dear Mr. Erdan!

My name is Milana Gorenstein, I am an international lawyer and a journalist from Jerusalem.

On June 1st 2016 I’ve sent to your office many documents showing the inactivity of the police in relation to investigations of crimes of top rank politicians and a letter to you, singed by me personally, in which I explained the severity of the situation and a need to establish a new security system in Israel in a form of private police.

I have called your office afterwards and asked to arrange a meeting with you, but your secretaries said there were no signed letter in the package of documents (no direct communication with the Minister), and, therefore, this is the reason why they will not arrange a meeting. I’ve faxed my letter again (confirmed) and was said to wait until the Public Complaints department will check my case.

In the meantime I turned to the Israel Post Couriers Service (Doar Shlihim) and asked to investigate under what circumstances my signed letter disappeared from the package of the documents you received. Please find their answer attached, confirming the receipt of the package undamaged by the workers of your Ministry. Therefore, the responsibility on this case in on workers of your Ministry, and I have many questions in relation to this incident…

To remind you, I received personal threats to myself and my family and event attacked personally during the international event on February, 2016, and my complaints to the police (as well as the attached confirming documents) were ignored and the cases were closed without investigation.

My new complaint to the Police against top rank politicians were closed the next day after investigation, and the Public Complaints department was informed about this.

I continue to live and work in Jerusalem, but my personal security and the security of my family is at risk, and no organization in the State of Israel offers me any protection.

The Public Complaints department representative Revital Ovadia Gispan doesn’t have explanation on why I didn’t receive any clear answer so far regarding the consistent life threats and personal attacks in front of TV cameras, and why these facts are not considered criminal cases in Israel (why the Police tries to establish their own laws at the Police Stations instead of laws of the State of Israel?) Death threats are often designed to intimidate victims in order to manipulate their behavior, but I am not the right person for this form of pressure…

In most world jurisdictions, death threats are a criminal offense. The fact that the Israel Police disregards this fact and create new criminal laws at the police stations means that the police officers committed the crime of usurpation of power in the State of Israel on behalf of high rank politicians, whom they try to protect.

I applied to all relevant organizations in Israel seeking for personal security (including your Ministry), with no result.  In case I will be attacked again (or killed), it will be the assassination for political reasons. My life and security, as well as those of my family members, are not protected, and you, Mr. Erdan, are holding personal responsibility or any incident that may happen to me and my family — today and in the future.

Taking all the mentioned into consideration, as well as the fact that 40 days (according to law) already passed and there were no result from my complaint to the Ministry of Public Security, I consider for my protection to turn to media, revealing all the facts to general public, and also seek political asylum in the third country (preferably, the United States of America, since I arrived to Israel from there). In this case all the above mentioned facts immediately become a subject of international investigation.

Today, on August 25th 2016, I start the official campaign on creation of Royal Security Forces — a new public organization that will control the implementation of laws in the State of Israel and offer the highest level of security to all citizens of the country.

I invite you to arrange a meeting with me to discuss all the problems described above  and try to find solutions to minimize the harm from this situation to the interests of the State of Israel and the people of Israel.

Kind regards,

Milana Gorenstein, LL.B

When and how did you start your career? Where did you study it?

First of all, I want to thank you for your interest to my creations. In 2003, when my sons grew up, I had the opportunity to carry out long-held dream — to open my own art studio. I am a chemist, in the design I am self — taught, but always took a great interest in needlework. Since childhood I reinvented bought clothes, changed it from usual to «exclusive»… When I was young lady I attended many art galleries and museums in Tbilisi, Moscow, St. Petersburg. The Dresden Gallery influenced me most of all . Great artworks had always shaped my taste.

My brand is called «ART-SALON TEILO». I am involved in a wide range of design worksfashion clothing, fur, leather, women’s accessories and jewelry, accessories for the home interior.

What are the stages of formation as a designer you passed through?

My career since 2003 and until now was very diverse. In the beginning I only designed clothes from fabrics and furs and, over time, began to create a vintage accessories for home decor. I made design for 12 prestigious restaurants (interior and accessories). Mehriban Aliyeva (the wife of the President of Azerbaijan — M.G.) with Sandra Roelofs (the wife of the President of Georgia — M.G,) visited my Art Salon together in 2004. Following the invitation of the First Lady of Azerbaijan, I visited Baku, where in 2005 I organized a show of my collection of fashion clothes and accessories. During the years of my creative activity I have organized 7 fashion shows to represent my collections.

How would you describe your aesthetic taste, your own style?

About my work have to judge those people who prefer clothes and accessories created by me , those who trust me in design of their business objects. Taking this opportunity, I want to thank everyone for the recognition and trus. I personally love classics and antique.

I always had my own business and worked with my team. embroiderers and other fashion specialists who work with me for many years.

The fashion is replaces individuality. I think we have to choose from fashion trends al elements that fit the character of the person, underline its individuality. Of course, I follow the latest trends, because as the designer I should be aware of all innovations.

And my dreams are endless … I want to organize a fabulous fashion show of my evening, wedding and fur products, which will be illuminated by new chandeliers of my «Seasons»collection.

My job requires a lot of time. In rare periods of rest I listen to music. I like to cook, often coming up with new recipes.

I have created a few fashion designs for the dogs of my friends. Sometimes I make gifts for them — sewing exclusive pullovers, dresses, coats for pets. At the moment, I do not have a four-legged friend. I had a dog — a black Labrador Naomi, she died in 2014 and I was sad about this very much.

The path of successful creative person is always difficult. What helps you overcome the difficulties?

A great love for my work, support of relatives and friends help me to overcome the problems. Difficulties strengthen my spirit, I get the desire to overcome obstacles and achieve more. I’m writing a book about my life — this is another aspect of my creative work.

PACE — Assembly Members

OSCE Minsk Group

International media

Dear Mrs. Brasseur!

My name is Milana Gorenstein, I am a 2013 presidential candidate in Azerbaijan.

I am writing to you in relation to the 2015 report «Escalation of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan» by Robert Walter (United Kingdom, EC), rapporteur of the Political Affairs Committee of the PACE.

I want to inform you that:

1) Presidential elections in Azerbaijan were totally falsified. I am fighting for my rights in courts and will continue to do so until I see the victory of good over evil and truth over falsehood.

2) Usurpation of power is a crime that occurs when any person unlawfully arrogates to himself power or authority, and this is exactly what happened in Azerbaijan. In a consistently law-abiding, constitutional nations of EU the crime of usurpation is unacceptable and should be convicted and punished.

3) On November 22, 2013 I have sent a letter to Mr. Robert Walter regarding his report «Observation of the presidential election in Azerbaijan (9 October 2013)», asking him to review the attached facts on authorities of Azerbaijan arrogating to themselves non-constitutional powers. Mr. Walter ignored all legal facts and reported to PACE and the whole world: “The result of the presidential election of 9 October 2013 should be seen as reflecting the will of people in Azerbaijan”. Mr. Walter, therefore, assisted to criminal behavior of authorities and to usurpation of power in Azerbaijan.

4) After the Appeal Court and High Court of Azerbaijan I complained to European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) — case No. 25718/14. The decision of ESCR judge Julia Laffranque created a new legal reality, resolved the question related to the Succession of State of Azerbaijan according to principles of international law and the status of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Therefore, the phrase ”Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan” doesn’t have any legal basis.

5) Thousands of years of human history have shown that political games for illegal control of state always turn bloody. Silence gives consent. Criminal Aliyev’s regime with Nazi ideology in less than one year after the “elections” have shown to the world what price innocent Azerbaijani people had to pay for such “cognitive blindness” of international observers and their false reports: hundreds of human rights activists slowly dying in prisons, the number of political prisoners in Azerbaijan is growing, and the escalation of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh line of contact is a direct result of state terror of armed bandits that occupied Azerbaijan with silent consent of international organizations, including PACE. Bur the game is over! All these crimes of the authorities of Azerbaijan deserve a hearing at International Criminal Tribunal, all criminals finally will be brought to justice, and I am working hard to make it happen.

6) Taking into consideration the above-mentioned findings, I ask you, Mrs. Brasseur

— to open an internal investigation on inappropriate behavior of the rapporteur of the Political Affairs Committee of the PACE Robert Walter (United Kingdom, EC), that affected over 800 million people from 47 member states and put at risk transparency, credibility, and good reputation of PACE as the organization dedicated to upholding human rights, democracy and the rule of law;
— to review and change the name and content of 2015 report «Escalation of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan», facing new legal realities;
— to transfer the responsibility to PACE member with no records of corrupt and/or unprofessional behavior;
— to take all necessary measures to prevent and confront unethical and unlawful behavior of members of PACE in the future.

Please find the relevant documents attached.
