SAN DIEGO - Human rights activist Boyd E. Graves has been granted 15additional days to amend his lawsuit against the U.S. Special Virus program, according to federal court documents received Friday.
"The United States can no longer deny the existence of its virus development program," Graves said. "Our case is not over."
Graves alleges the HIV/AIDS virus was created inside a formerly secret federal virus development program called the U.S. Special Virus Program. Graves said the program persisted through 1978 and produced 60,000 liters of synthetic human immune deficiency virus.Graves said a 1971 government flow chart coordinates the development of HIV/AIDS inside government laboratories. Graves' lawsuit is seeking the full disclosure of the secret human experiments from the federal agencies responsible including the National Cancer Institute.
"If Attorney General Aschroft was truly working for the American people, he would support our efforts toward truth and accountability for the U.S. Special Virus Program," Graves said.
Graves said he will comply with Judge Jeffrey T. Miller's request and submit his amended complaint early next week.
