BBC IV: PR for English Law by Prison Chaplain and Scottish Barrister Harry Potter (!)

6 Comments

The Strange Case Of The Law will begin on Wednesday 20 June on BBC Four at 9.00pm – 10.00pm.

I wonder whether this chaplain turned barrister believes as much in the Rule of Law as all victims do.

Except that they have experienced mainly that the Rule of Law was replaced by the Rule of Money and the Abuse of Power… After his latest court appearance, Colin Peters said

“This is not justice. This is only a money making racket.”

He expected to be arrested for ‘contempt of court’. But the staff seemed to agree by leaving him alone…

Wood Green in London: a Court of fair trials and justice or partiality and corruption?

NEWS RELEASE                                                                                02 June 2012

Victims Unite[i] is a website dedicated to being a voice for victims of financial exploitation and legal oppression. It opened in August 2010 and has had over 109,000 visits since.

This week, Wood Green Court will unite one of the worst bankruptcies and the worst of all child snatching cases.

One of the earliest cases published was Mr Ebert’s bankruptcy[ii], in book form as The Forensics of Legal Fraud[iii]. It is believed to be one of the worst in terms of financial value and legal cover-up.

Mr Ebert’s trial will take place in Wood Green Crown Court: on Wednesday, 6th and Thurssay, 7th June, at 10.15am, Court 8 with Judge Ader and two Magistrates. It brings to light astonishingly negligent (if not criminal) behaviour of major institutions that we rely on to feel secure in our homes.

Every person in the UK can potentially be affected by the outcome of this trial. For it will either acknowledge or bury the solid evidence that this Litigant in Person is bringing into Court to test the “beyond reasonable doubt” Rule of Law that needs to be applied in criminal court cases.

Next court hearing of Mr Ebert in a criminal court

86 Comments

This trial is to establish that that ‘dark forces’ in our society are controlling

1. the HM LAND REGISTRY
2. the CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE (CPS)
3. HM METROPOLITAN POLICE (MET)
4. HM COURT SERVICES (HMCS)
5. the LEGAL PROFESSION.

Specifically, acts of perjury, forgery, fraud and money laundering have been used for the obtaining of property by deception.

Mr Ebert has been labelled ‘vexatious litigant’ and been banned from all courts.

However, in this trial, the CPS are prosecuting him for a criminal offence: he sprayed something on the house that was taken from him fraudulently. This 13-page document tells you more.

Please phone him on 020 8905 5209 for more details and look at Next Court Hearings on the Citizens’ Cyber Court that we’re slowly setting in motion.

Please support this Man. For you or yours could be next!

  • This complaint form to HMP Cardiff is one way in which Maurice J Kirk, a veterinary surgeon and pilot, expresses what he has been experiencing since he was arrested on September 21st and imprisoned.

Six weeks later, he still has not been told in writing what he is in prison for and when his release date might be.

Hence he is on hunger strike and gives his latest reasons here. I am on hunger strike because

  1. Court and Prison continue to refuse to disclose written record of WHY I am in prison and with which release date.
  2. Crown Court have denied me my right for a fair bail application because CPS refuse to put in writing what I was sent to prison for, my release date and why Police oppose bail when CPS did not on 23rd September. It was the District Judge who decided I be detained for political reasons only.
  3. I am not getting proper medical treatment promised.
  4. As a prisoner I am continuing to be denied by basic human rights on the prison’s excuse that I am the only prisoner not represented on the wing by a lawyer, i.e. LIP (Litigant in Person) blackmail.

Besides attending Cardiff Magistrates Court on November 10th at 10am and signing this petition suggestions for supporting Maurice are here.

When I met Maurice, I was going to get him into the Guiness Book of Records – mainly for his number of successful court cases, but there were many other priorities. Now I know better than ever:

That’s why family courts operate in secrecy to justify the snatching of children by Social Services…

Better a bad system, run by good people, than a good system run by bad people – Norman Scarth’s first report

6 Comments

Proud to be British until the age of 70, very late in life I learn that in Britain, we have a bad system, run by VERY bad people!
There is SO-O-O much wrong with my conviction, incarceration, & the 3 hearings in the Royal Courts of ‘Justice'(???), it is difficult to know where to start.

First, perhaps, should be Lord ‘Justice'(???) Pitchford’s admission that when my ‘recording’ was played, it was discovered that it hadn’t recorded ANY of the hearing because the mic was not able to do so from so far away!  So, I hadn’t been recording at all!

Re. Habeas Corpus: Mr. Justice Wyn Williams, who heard the application, proved that he did not know the first thing about Habeas Corpus (I will explain later).  Chris Jarvis did a brilliant job in getting off the ground with it, & achieved a landmark in law, which will be of great value to others in years to come.

It is not surprising that there are a few minor errors in the detail of the story as told by my wonderful supporters.  I will correct & clarify later, but they are of no real consequence to the essentials of the story.

I see that the story has been covered by all the English Press, even local papers in distant counties, but they all made a point of quoting in full the poisonous lies & character assassination in LJ Pitchford’s ‘Judgment’.  His words, & the quoting of them, was of course, to get Judge Jonathan Rose off the hook.

I clarify three points now:  (1)  I did not attend Bradford Crown Court to support’ the defendant, but only to observe.  However, when I learned she had dismissed her solicitor (of which Judge Rose was unaware) I did offer myself as a McKenzie Friend.   Had that been allowed, I would have asked to use my recorder, as I have done many times in the past: sometimes permission was granted, sometimes refused.

(2).  Before the case started, I asked the usher for the earphones which are available to anyone that needs them.  In the past I have found them marvellous, enabling me to hear every word.  On this occasion, the usher responded with the astonishing remark, “Oh, we’ll have to go to Gateshead for them.”  What that meant I have not the slightest idea.  When it came to the start of my own ‘trial’ later in the day, I was given the earphones.

(3)  In the public gallery I was sitting as quiet as a little mouse.  The woman sitting behind me was a ‘Witness Support Officer’, & as there were no witnesses in the court or public gallery, had no purpose to be there.  IN FACT, SHE HAD BEEN ORDERED TO SIT BEHIND ME AS A SPY!   When she suspected I might be using a recording device she ran to tell the usher, who ran to tell the judge.  The ‘disruption’ in the court which followed was caused by those three, & not by me!

The spy woman confirms what I have said elsewhere: That I have been a marked man for 12 – 14 years!   More confirmation:  On 3rd May this year I had barely stepped from the payment into Wirral Magistrates’ Court when I was arrested, handcuffed, dragged off & stuck in a 2’3″ square cage in the back of a police van for almost three hours before being ‘de-arrested’ & released without charge.  Yes, the story is a VERY long one!

It is said that one of the problems of old age is boredom.  Not for me it ain’t!

Luv to my supporters.  To those who are not, I borrow from a verse of the national anthem, “Confound our enemies, frustrate their knavish tricks”.

Norman Scarth.

A Paranoid, Disturbed, Violent & Crazed Old Man’.  Many of you will have seen the front page of the Bradford Telegraph & Argus, but for the benefit of those who have not, I attach it again.

Norman Scarth Freed by Appeal: Exact Account of Hearing and Outcome

56 Comments

Here is the account of the appeal hearing on 9 September 2011 in the Royal Courts of Justice – by a close observer and supporter of Norman:

THE HEARING

Norman’s appeal against both conviction and sentence was listed for hearing and heard in Court 5 at the Royal Courts of Justice Strand London WC2 on 9 September 2011 at 10.00 am in the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division).

Also listed was his previous Habeas Corpus application as a Divisional Court, and it emerged later that this was so due to a technical hiccup made by Mr. Justice Wyn Williams at the end of the second hearing of Norman and Chris’s application for the Writ.

The court was presided over by Lord Justice Pitchford, sitting with Mr. Justice Wilkie and Mr. Justice Holroyd.

Maurice Kirk was at the hearing, along with the Musas.  I believe that there were other supporters of Norman from Leeds and other places all over the country also present, and it was a packed court.

From the commencement of the case,there were two goon court security guards at both entrances to the back of the court.

Norman appeared by video link which was switched on before the hearing began.

Treasury Solicitor defending The Secretary of State for Justice in Scarth v HMP Leeds

17 Comments

Here are 22 paragraphs as Reasons for Decision by Mr Justice Wyn Williams

  1. to refuse the application for Habeas Corpus
  2. to refuse an application for bail
  3. to decline to consider an application to purge his contempt.

4: I accept that the Claimant had little time to respond to the documentation provided on behalf of the Secretary of State of Justice.

11: I am unpersuaded that I should find that the Claimant’s rights under Article 6 of the Convention were breached by the procedure which was adopted at the Crown Court.

13: Habeas Corpus is not the appropriate remedy to get the medication that Norman needs. If formal complaints don’t succeed, he might consider a ‘judicial review’.

15: There is simply no proper evidence regarding the Claimant’s ill health…

Judgment & Jury of over 2,100 Petition Signers in Scarth HMP Leeds Prison case

13 Comments

Yesterday’s hearing resulted in Norman having to wait until the appeal hearing on “the first open date after September 2nd”.

Here’s the transcript of Justice Wyn Williams’ judgment.

Hence I’m updating the collection of comments on our petition Free WWII Veteran Norman Scarth from Leeds Prison.

Here are some gems for you:

1811. He froze his ass off on some of the worst convoys in WW2  for democracy and this is how they treat him? He would have had more rights under the Nazis than the ruling party in this country, it’s a disgrace!!!!!

1882. Free him! This man was willing to die for this country! He should not spend any time at all behind bars!

1905. This is an insult to all service men.

Abolish the ban on recording court proceedings – an idea whose time has come?

3 Comments

The petition signers who left 13 comments about “What’s wrong with recording in court” on page 18 are not alone.

Here’s an interesting site: Gov You – Crowdsourcing ideas for changes to UK law.

One of the ideas is to abolish the ban on recording court proceedings – proposed by barrister Alistair Kelman. I asked him via Twitter whether he can do something for Norman.
