Reiner Fuellmich COVID-19 Grand Jury Fact Check!

The Reiner Fuellmich COVID-19 Grand Jury video keeps going viral on social media and WhatsApp groups.

Let’s take a look at what this COVID-19 Grand Jury is all about, and what the facts really are!


Reiner Fuellmich COVID-19 Grand Jury : What Does Video Claim?

There are several variants of the video circulating on social media, and WhatsApp group. Generally about 18 minutes in length, the video shows part of the Reiner Fuellmich COVID-19 Grand Jury Proceeding.

These proceedings, grandiosely named “Grand Jury Proceeding by the Peoples’ Court of Public Opinion, Empowering Public Conscience through Natural Law” consists of multiple 5 videos recorded over 5 days of “proceedings”.

The Grand Jury claims to be “a group of international lawyers and a judge” conducting a “criminal investigation” to present to a jury “all available evidence of COVID-19 Crimes Against Humanity“.


Reiner Fuellmich COVID-19 Grand Jury : Just Videos Of An RPG

This is yet another example of fake news created and propagated by Reiner Fuellmich and his group of anti-vaccination activists and COVID-19 deniers. Here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : There Is No Peoples’ Court of Public Opinion

The first thing you should know is that – there is no such thing as a “Peoples’ Court of Public Opinion“.

It is merely a grandiose, make-believe name they created for their videos, and people who watch them.

As they themselves explain, “This investigation is of the people, by the people and for the people and shall be referred to as the ‘Peoples´ Court of Public Opinion’.

By that definition – all websites and videos on the Internet are People’s Courts of Public Opinions as well.

Fact #2 : This Is Not A Legal Court

Lest there be any confusion – this is not a legal court where real lawyers present real evidence to a real jury, in front of a real judge, with real laws and rules governing the process, and real consequences.

As the group themselves admit, they were “unable to find a court to hear the actual evidence in the current system’s courts of law“.

In other words – they could not find a single court in the entire world to take their claims seriously. That’s how weak their case really is.

Fact #3 : Their Judge Was Expelled

Despite claiming to be a distinguished group of legal experts, they could only rope in Rui Fonseca e Castro, a former judge from Portugal.

Rui Fonseca e Castro used to be a judge in Portugal, but was suspended in September 2021 and then dismissed by the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) on 9 October 2021.

The CSM voted to dismiss Rui Fonseca e Castro as a judge for abusing his position as a judge to post videos on social networks to “encourage the violation of the law and health rules” concerning COVID-19.

Fact #3 : It Was Just A Role-Play Game

The whole Grand Jury Proceeding of the Peoples´ Court of Public Opinion by Reiner Fuellmich was nothing more than a role-playing game (RPG).

What you basically have is a group of anti-vaccination activists and/or COVID-19 deniers pretending to conduct an online “Grand Jury” proceeding.

The videos have a small overlay on the lower right corner – Model Proceeding, probably a legal device (e.g. This Is Not Real!) to avoid being sued for misrepresenting themselves.

Fact #4 : They Spend Their Time Role-Playing

Reiner Fuellmich is part of the Berlin Corona Committee – a group that loves role-playing games, probably because they cannot do anything real.

I covered their BasisCamp role-playing game back in August 2021, where they pretended to be the German government.

They went viral with a video of their announcement of a moratorium against COVID-19 vaccination in Germany, allegedly because there is no longer an epidemic.

Obviously, that did not happen. It was theatrics back then, and it’s just theatrics this time too.

Fact #5 : Grand Jury Claims Have Been Proven False

The video being shared is basically Reiner Fuellmich’s opening statement in his make-believe COVID-19 Grand Jury.

In his 18-minute statement, he lists a litany of COVID-19 claims that have long been proven false. Here is just a small selection :

After over 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems absurd that Fuellmich is unaware of these facts.

Don’t risk your life or your family’s lives on the bad science and misinformation promoted by Reiner Fuellmich and his compatriots.
