COMES NOW before me, Jennette E. Hall, a notary in and for the abovejurisdiction,
Gurujot Singh Khalsa, who is personally known to me and after being duly sworn under oath, states as follows:
1. I am
Gurujot Singh Khalsa, National Affairs Advisor to Yogi Bhajan, Siri Singh Sahib of Sikh Dharma.
2. On June 16, 1986, at
the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, New York, I attended a meeting with the Siri Singh Sahib. The meeting, which was in
two sections, was during the afternoon, starting at approximately 2:00 p.m. and ending in the early evening, approximately
7:00 p.m. The meeting took place in a bedroom and in a living room of a suite.
3. The purpose of the meeting was to
attempt a resolution of a dispute between the Siri Singh Sahib and Pritum Singh Khalsa, which included allegations by Katherine
Felt and Premka Kaur Khalsa.
4. The format of the meeting was along traditional Sikh methods of dispute resolution;
that is, there were five elders from the Sikh Community (Punj Piari) who were designated to hear the dispute and attempt an
amicable resolution. Four of these elders were: Bhai Mon Mohan Singh; Bhai Jiwan Singh; Sat Want Singh; and Swarn Singh. I
do not remember the name of the fifth elder.
5. Also, present at the meetings were: Bibiji Inderjit Kaur (the Siri
Singh Sahibs wife); Kulbir Singh (the Siri Singh Sahibs son); Guramrit Kaur Khalsa (secretary); Sat Jiwan Singh Khalsa (advisor);
and Gurudhan Singh Khalsa (advisor).
6. During the course of the meetings, Pritum Singh appeared with Robert S. Whitehill,
Esquire. Pritum Singh stated that Mr. Whitehill was his (Pritum Singhs) attorney.
7. During conversations in which
I participated, the claims of Katherine Felt and Premka Kaur Khalsa were discussed. Pritum Singh stated that he was responsible
for and controlled the lawsuits which were drafted on behalf of Ms. Felt and Ms. Khalsa. He also stated that he was paying
for the lawsuits.
8. Pritum Singh further stated that the lawsuits would be dropped if the Siri Singh Sahib would
agree to the demands of Pritum Singh, which included:
(a) the public recognition by the Siri Singh Sahib of Khalistan;
(b) the resignation of the Siri Singh Sahib from his leadership of the American Sikh community; and
payment of all funds controlled by the Siri Singh Sahib to Pritum Singh.
9. At all times during the meetings where
Mr. Whitehill was present, it was represented to me that the lawsuits were in final form waiting to be filed. It was my understanding
that Mr. Whitehill was counsel for Pritum Singh, along with Ms. Felt and Ms. Khalsa.
Subscribed and sworn to before me this 8th day of August 1986.
