As far as I know, Dr Fukino has never amended or added to her original statement below.
10-31-08 Statement by Director of Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino:
There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate.
State law (Hawai’i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.
Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai’i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai’i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.
1-Original birth certificate present.
2-On file in accordance with state policies.
3-Does not mention what was on it.
4-Does not mention his place of birth.
5-Does not mention proof that barry requested his COLB or if so how many times and when.
6-Does not mention if his family requested barry’s COLB or his original long form or if so how many times and when.
7-Does not mention how long the birth certificate has been on file.
8-Does not mention any of the pertinent information: hospital, doctor, name and DOB, etc.
9-Does not mention any proof that a COLB was in fact derived from the exact original birth certificate she verified.
10-Does not provide chain of evidence proof that the COLB on factcheck was derived from the original birth certificate.
11-Does not prove in any way that the factcheck COLB – that very one – was indeed derived from the long form she verified.
To do so, she would need both in her hand at the same time and records proving one lead to the other one and that no alterations of any sort were made.
The COLB provided on factcheck has not – by Dr Fukino’s statement – been proven to be an exact legal representation of what was on the exact long form birth certificate she verified.
So how is factcheck’s COLB admissible in a court of law as absolute proof?
