Victims of white collar crimes know that
‘Integral to the success of the fraud were a number of corrupt individuals and insiders.’
Here’s the full story in the Daily Mail that, so far, has only touched three elderly home owners. And who cares about the legions of bankrupts and those whose homes have been repossessed or whose children are taken unlawfully?
I am newly fuelled by injustice. But it’s hard to see how to tackle what has become a police state. Look at what “lay expert” Mr Ebert has discovered:
1. The Definition of Hearsay Evidence
Any document not supported by evidence is inadmissible and considered a lie
2. The Malicious Communications Act 1988
One hour of sleepless night is ‘torture’
3. The County Courts Act 1983
Requires county courts to be courts of record
4. Article 5 of the UK Human Rights Act
The right to speedy hearings when liberty is at stake
5. The South Africa Apartheid Litigation (2005)
The state machinery mustn’t act like in South Africa or Nazi Germany…

Dear Ms McNeill,
Thank you for your reply of 2 December 2010 in which you emphasise that you are not looking for the Commission to intervene on individual cases but rather you are asking the Commission to close the gap between the EU Fundamental Charter for Human Rights and the UK Human Rights Act 1998.
As a matter of principle, the Commission’s powers regarding acts and omissions by Member States are limited to overseeing the application of Union law, under the control of the Court of Justice (cf. Article 17(1) TEU). The Commission would recall that, according to Article 51(1) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, the provisions of the Charter are addressed to the Member States only when they are implementing Union law. For this reason, the Commission is not in a position to address the relation between the UK Human Rights Act and the Charter.
Anyone who considers that any of her or his fundamental rights have been violated may lodge a complaint with the Council of Europe’s European Court of Human Rights (Council of Europe, 67075 Strasbourg-Cedex, France). Please note, however, that the Court may only deal with a matter after all domestic remedies have been exhausted.

Mainstream Media, News
Daily Mail, European Convention on Human Rights, Human Rights Act 1998, Injunction, Master of the Rolls, Stephen Glover
Nearly every victim I’ve ever come across would agree with the subject line.
Here it is Stephen Glover in the Daily Mail who writes it because of the super-injunctions that are currently being discussed. Let’s hope they turn out to be the tip of iceberg!
Already The Independent has found that only 69 injunctions were by the rich and famous.
264 were meant to gag families whose children were snatched.
Vicky Haigh would have been imprisoned if she had not promised to comply with the order.
A woman told me recently that she had to sign a document to promise never to talk either.

Dear Paulette [who recommended I publish this for the benefit of other victims, especially the time limits]
Thank you for your recent enquiry via policeclaims.co.uk.
I was sorry to hear of your experience and fully appreciate that you wish to take the matter further.
As I am sure you appreciate, instructing a solicitor is a serious (and costly) business, so the first issue to resolve when considering whether to take action is how your case is to be funded.
Unfortunately, my firm does not offer Legal Aid.

This was the subject line of my newsletter at the beginning of December 2010. It started by:
Hello again, in the Spirit of Tackling the Serious Oppression of the British people,
First of all, many thanks to everybody who’s viewed and signed our latest petition in support of Maurice Kirk and all other victims of financial exploitation and legal oppression. In his indefatigable and adventurous spirit, Maurice has toured Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney to “rattle a few cages” – with a TV programme, newspaper and video reporting. Trying to keep him out of jail, despite a warrant for arrest, is paramount, given his medical condition and the number of false imprisonments he’s endured already.
WANTED: Fair Trials and Compensation – instead of an Effective Remedy before National Authorities – has now reached 153 signatures and over 1,700 page views. The most fascinating reading are the comments that I compiled into a document. Together with the comments to STOP the OPPRESSION of the BRITISH PEOPLE, these are most valuable campaigning documents to refer to, when people pursue their own cases. Especially when communicating with your MP, you can demonstrate how you are far from alone!

EU, Fundamental Rights Charter, Government, Human Rights Convention
European Convention on Human Rights, Human rights, Human Rights Act 1998, Tom McNally Baron McNally
On the 60th anniversary of the European convention on human rights, Lord McNally discussed how the system of values and rights contained within the convention has been part of British legal DNA for hundreds of years.
He explained that the Government will continue to support the convention, and intends to establish a commission to look afresh at the way these rights are protected in the UK.
Pity that comments are closed. For neither the author nor eh readers seem to be aware of what victims have discovered: the missing Articles 1 and 13.
Lord McNally will definitely get a copy of our petition with its comments as well as the report I’m working on…

Human Rights Convention
Council of Europe, European Convention on Human Rights, European Court of Human Rights, European Union, Human rights, Human Rights Act 1998, Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted by the United Nations General Assemby in 1948 and contains 30 Articles.
The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) or Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms is an international treaty to protect human rights and fundamental freedoms in Europe. It entered into force in 1953. All Council of Europe member states are party to the Convention and new members are expected to ratify the convention at the earliest opportunity.
It comprises 18 Articles and 13 Convention protocols.
There are two articles that are significant for victims:
- Article 6 provides a detailed right to a fair trial, including the right to a public hearing before an independent and impartial tribunal within reasonable time, the presumption of innocence, and other minimum rights for those charged with a criminal offence
- Article 13 provides for the right for an effective remedy before national authorities for violations of rights under the Convention.
