Important Habeas Corpus Application in Royal Courts of Justice on October 12th


Caul Grant is an incessant campaigner and fighter for justice in courts and the streets with his Campaign for Truth and Justice.

He studied the law, whilst imprisoned for 6 1/2 years. Upon release, he was subjected to a 12-year travel ban.

This is one of the points he wants to raise on Friday October 12th in the Royal Courts of Justice (RCJ) on the Strand. He uses Habeas Corpus which means the ‘production of a body’, including prisoners. According to Wikipedia,

 It has historically been an important legal instrument safeguarding individual freedom against arbitrary state action.

Whilst waiting for the time to be announced, he will have his campaigning material ready and invites supporters to join him outside the RCJ, starting at 10.30, as he did for two weeks in April this year.


You are all suspects now: What are you going to do about it?


This article by John Pilger is pretty frightening unless it triggers some feelings of outrage in you and you act on these kind of premises:

  • the US have launched a permanent war and a police state is consuming Western democracy
  • in Britain, on instructions from the CIA, secret courts are to deal with “terror suspects”. Habeas Corpus is dying.
  • as the law is politicised and Americanised, travesties are not untypical.

May the web and the net help us – besides the conscience that, I think, we are all born with!


Norman Scarth on BBC – albeit for the somewhat wrong reasons


The sinking of the Scharnhorst was certainly the most memorable experience in Norman’s life. Like all soldiers of all nations, he was lured into believing that it’s worth fighting “the enemy”. He and I know better who benefits from wars now: Wall Street and other financiers, besides arms manufacturers and maybe politicians who never risk their lives themselves.

Then 18, now 85, he woke up to other ways of thinking, when he turned 70 and became a human rights activist, simply to defend atrocities committed against himself. But he soon realised that he was not alone.

When he was imprisoned at 85, for supposedly recording a court hearing – with a device that wasn’t even capable of doing so – it was Russia Today that broke the news, while over 2,700 supporters signed a petition for him.

How long will the Rule of Money govern over the Rule of Law???

Human Rights Activist Norman Scarth writes Admirably to HMP Cardiff


Maurice Kirk & Norman Scarth outside the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand in London

Norman Scarth knows what hell holes prisons are. He has only recently been put there on highly questionable grounds, resulting in a lot of support and public outcries.

He now faxed this admirable page to the Governor of HMP Cardiff, reminding him of his powers and duties – partly formulated in the Nuremberg Trials!

In 2009, Norman had helped Maurice get out of the psychiatric clinic. Will Norman’s magic wand of eloquence help Maurice as he is  expected to face the forensic psychiatrist responsible in Cardiff Magistrates Court on Nov. 10th?

Whilst in prison, Maurice wrote this Chronology of Collusion – Or Shall we Dare Call it Conspiracy?

See Dr. Tegwyn Williams, Director of Caswell Clinic on Maurice’s website.

These WANTED posters are now the object of contention of ‘harassing Dr Williams’, even though Maurice had checked with police officers about their lawfulness.

Another example for criminals criminalising victims. I begin to think that there is no chance for justice in the UK…

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


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


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:


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.
