Did US Navy JAG just hang WHO Assistant Director General Ihekweazu for promoting COVID-19 vaccines?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : JAG Hanged WHO Assistant DG Ihekweazu!
As usual, the article is (intentionally?) rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!
Truth : JAG Did Not Hang WHO Assistant DG Ihekweazu!
The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.
Fact #1 : His Name Is Chikwe, Not Chickwe
The Real Raw News story wrongly identifies the WHO official in its story as Dr. Chickwe
If it cannot even get his name right…
Fact #2 : Promoting Vaccines Is Not A Crime
Real Raw News claimed that Dr. was hanged for apparently pushing vaccine mandates, and/or promoting COVID-19 vaccines. That’s just daft.
After all – neither promoting vaccine mandates, or COVID-19 vaccination, are crimes in the US military, or even in the United States.
Even if promoting vaccines and vaccine mandates are crimes in a hypothetical dystopian United States, they would not necessarily be capital crimes resulting in the death penalty.
Fact #3 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians
The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Dr.. The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.
Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

Fact #4 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone
JAG officers are not law enforcement officers. They are really military lawyers, and have no powers to arrest anyone – not even military personnel.
They can investigate crimes, defend or prosecute service members accused of those crimes. But JAG officers cannot actually arrest anyone.
Fact #5 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute
It is also hilarious that Real Raw News readers actually believe the bullshit that someone sentenced to death would be executed just days later.
That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States, where death row inmates wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.
In fact, none of the six Gitmo inmates charged with capital crime in the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and the attack on USS Cole in 2000, have actually been trialled to date, never mind convicted and sentenced to death.
Fact #6 : US Military Has Not Executed Anyone Since 1961
Even though the US military has killed many combatants intentionally, and civilians as collateral damage, they have not executed prisoners since 1961.
There are four US military inmates on death row, but none of them have been executed so far.

Fact #7 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website
Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.
To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.
That disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.
His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I debunked earlier:
- Did JAG Execute Assistant Defense Secretary Tanya Skeen?!
- Are Tanks + IFVs Being Sent To Protect Texas Border?!
- Did US Special Forces Just Arrest Merrick Garland?!
- Are Marines + Army Rangers Being Sent To Texas Border?!
- Was NIH Deputy Director Alfred Johnson Just Hanged?!
- Did US Marines Just Arrest John Kelly For Treason?!
- Did JAG Just Arrest 97 American Media Criminals?!
- Was Lloyd Austin Just Killed In Ukraine?!
Everything posted by Real Raw News should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.
