A VICTORY for Common Sense and the Rule of Law: child snatching and other news

Family Court

The latest article in The Telegraph about the family courts is not by but about Christopher Booker! It illustrates how commitment and perseverance to one’s issue may actually get you somewhere, some time… Open up family court hearings, says senior judge – A senior judge has made an important ruling in favour of transparency in the family courts: to allow Christopher Booker to be as rude as he likes to be, because of freedom of speech, and to provide access to court papers, i.e. to remove a gag or injunction. Mr Booker said and wrote “the decision to lift the injunction was a victory for common sense and the rule of law.”

Mr Justice Mostyn is the current President of the Family Courts and he has set a crucial precedence with a ruling about the right to breastfeeding that refers to a milestone case before the European Court in Strasbourg: taking a baby at birth is a “Draconian and extremely harsh measure”.

But the battle to lift the veils of secrecy that shroud the “secret courts” we already have is very far from over, and behind those veils far too many cruel abuses of justice will continue to flourish unreported.

Lord Justice Munby has now called for “greater transparency, and radical and comprehensive reform of the family court system.”

I sent him our online petition The Secrecy of Family Courts should be lifted Now, and, above all, the remarkable comments that illustrate the utter frustration, dismay and disgust with the current system.

I also sent him the skeleton argument of a case that involved removing a baby at birth and we were given permission to appeal the adoption order that was made with the aid of a solicitor NOT acting in the interest of the mother (as usual). The mother was thus looking for help and found us online.

Let’s hope that, eventually, we’ll get all children returned who have been taken at birth and adopted forcefully!

My latest attempt to make a difference towards that goal is to inform the Attorney General’s Office of what’s going on – from start to finish:

  1. What’s Unique in the UK
  2. It starts with Social Services, the NHS or Schools
  3. It continues with the Police
  4. The Secrecy of Family Courts exacerbates the dramas
  5. The Absence of the Rule of Law in Courts
  6. Lawyers don’t Represent the Interests of their Clients
  7. What happens in Prisons is sheer torture
  8. The Connection with Paedophilia
  9. The Slovak Outrage
  10. The Rule of Money has replaced The Rule of Law.

Meanwhile, this ‘Prison Writing’ In the Belly of the Beast, from the Miscarriages of Justice News Service is a great analysis of what we’re observing in prisons: institutionalised cruelty; e.g. a mother who’s been in 13 foster homes over 15 years, abused in 2, had 4 children taken at birth, was punished for helping a suffering inmate – as an example of  victims of child snatching being criminalised.

13 03 03 Paedophile trend

Let’s be honest: paedophilia is a fancy name for sexual child abuse. When looking at Google Trends, the mention of ‘child abuse’ in news headlines has gone down since 2005.

But the peak for ‘paedophile’ thanks to the Jimmy Savile scandal is ‘beautifully embarrassing’ for the UK. Note the list of ‘related terms’ at the bottom of the page.

    “SILENT FRAUD” well put Ismail.
    Family Courts operate under lies, malice, farce and as Ismail puts it “silent fraud.”
    Operating within star chambers, witnesses of such acts to defraud the public purse are obscured leaving those that are part of it to continue to be part of it.
    If Family Courts were run under Common Law these so called professional fraudsters would be enjoying Her Majesty’s Pleasure.

  4. The possibility of justice both being done, and being seen to be done, draws a little closer each time a posting goes on the internet, and draws comment from those in power.

    Here in Carmarthenshire, headlines outside a supermarket announced that proceedings within the council chamber were to be filmed – at last.

    This comes hard on the heels of the case made by the local Chief Executive to prosecute a member of the public for filming, on her mobile telephone, the council proceedings she was witnessing from the public gallery.

    Now, with the recently announced possibilities of the launch of local television, perhaps the CE imagines he might increase his public rating, or even enjoy celebrity status on local goggle boxes. Oh dear, to quote an old favourite – long disappeared from our televisions – Some Mothers Do Have Them!

  6. Thanks to Victims Unite “The mother was thus looking for help and found us online”. Particular praise must go to the founders and supporters of Victims Unite web site, who have taken the initiative to set up this movement, to achieve “The impossible dream.”

    This proves that together we are not left like Don Quixote tilting at Windmills. We are victims of Crime and Legal abuse and together with many non-victim supporters are uniting for justice. Together we stand up for our rights. They act in our name and it is up to each and every one of us, without exception not to allow any individual or authority to abuse the rights of any one of us. We must all protect that which we value, and ensure that the law means what it says it means, and not what others want it to say.

    I must state here that I am not a lawyer and not qualified to give advice, however it is my belief that the Law says that we each have a duty of care. The rule that we must care for each other means no one and that includes authorities, acts negligently to cause harm to anyone. If anyone without reasonable excuse stands by to allow any other person or any authority to harm another, their own conscience will dictate judgement, and the circumstances will decide if it was lawful.

    We have a duty to protect everyone’s right, against any that would unlawfully erode or remove our rights. Keep them and protect them – else lose them through passive acceptance. The passive acceptance corrodes self respect. We understand the peer pressure that is put on individuals within a group, not to tell tales, or report misconduct. We have seen many examples of the cover ups being exposed, sometimes over many years…… The suddenly exposed as a national scandal.

    We must “Start spreading the news” we have proved “another small step…..” let each one of us email twitter and whatever else we can do to show “Victims United” works for victims causes and concerns. We can all see “there but for the grace of God go any of us”.

    Everyone reading this will see the opportunity to spread the news, you have reached this page so start spreading the news via face-book and twitter, it will be picked up and spread to other victims and victim support units. (Including the charity victim support who may learn that support from Victims united means Victims helping each other) and victims must connect together, this proves the impossible dream sets the intent and together united “Nothing is impossible”.

    • Word of mouth is the best publicity. Like Chinese Whispers, it may escalate, or morph in the telling, but the more tongues that wag; the louder will be the sound they make. The more people that read these pages, the greater will be the audience for all those fingers getting busy to spread the written word. Let’s go to it.
