THREE POSITIVE Judgements by Sir James Munby and 4,000 Financial Ombudsmen (and -women)

10 Comments

13 10 25 Jail Social WorkersIt is too soon to sing Hallelujah, but here are two stories in one week that make our hearts sing and our hands applaud Sir James Munby:

  1. Jail social workers who take children without telling parents why, says Britain’s top family judge
    * Sir James Munby attacked workers in Bristol who didn’t explain themselves
    * They did not tell a couple why their two children were being taken from them
    * They breach a court order in doing so – which could carry a jail term in future
  2. MP [John Hemming of course] condemns secret justice
    * Strange that no other paper has reported this yet…
  3. Courts should adapt to the realities of the internet, particularly social media
    * I just wish that this judgement was taken on board by every judge in the country!

On the other end of the spectrum of white collar crimes, I met last night two of the 4,000 Financial Ombudsmen who have been set up by the financial industry as alternatives to court – and they are free of charge! Once you’re in court, they don’t help, it seems. Also, when cases are too big, i.e. worth more than £100,000. Well, they do have to protect themselves, don’t they, these brethren. A seasoned fighter tells me about the ‘conflicts of interest’ of senior board members…

Apparently, they grew exponentially over the last two years AND they get financial institutions to pay compensation! They also uphold far more complaints than they refuse. So give them a chance, I’d say!

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were as many Legal Ombudsmen (and -women) around – free of charge – instead of lawyers riding the Legal Aid train???

This remarkable comment was written in response to this blog post on Punishment without Crime.

It appears that once they find they get shielded by closing ranks and keeping secrets and are able to use our taxpayers money to threaten and pressurize people into silence  they continue to get away with it. Each of us must keep repeating this concern. Stop them stealing our legal controls. The law is there and it is ours, our children have rights and we as parents have rights under the law. We must rescue our legal rights and use them against those who abuse human rights.

If we each wrote to our MP [www.WriteToThem.com] in the standard form, either email or letter I am sending:

FAIR and JUST? On the Rule of Law and the Quality of its Enforcement

4 Comments

The law is only as good
Victims Unite has brought a few starfighters together who have studied the law, helped as McKenzie Friends and challenged antiquated rules such as the ban on recording court proceedings.

Here is the online petition Abolish the Ban on Recording Court Proceedings and here is a first collection of comments by signers.

Here are a few conclusions by victims who stand up for themselves:

UK Police Personnel should have Criminal Records Bureau Checks - an online petition that publishes a list of charged or convicted Prison, Police and Court Personnel (ca 1274)

The Law is only as good as the integrity of those entrusted to administrate it. – Maurice Kirk

A law breaker cannot also be a law enforcer. – Caul Grant

‘The Law’ in Britain (The Police & the Courts), deliberately deny me the protection of the law, & deliberately block me from seeking a remedy in the courts for crimes & other wrongs committed against me. That being so, & it IS fact, then that same ‘Law’ CANNOT be used to punish me. Indeed, both Police & Courts have themselves committed serious crimes against me, & do so with impunity.

Or in short:

  • LAW ONE is to Protect the Powerful.
  • LAW TWO is to Oppress those who are Not.
  • LAW THREE is to destroy anyone who dares to protest. – Norman Scarth

MIND THE GAPS – between Online and Mainstream Media, Government and Public @ the House of Commons

Mind the Gaps – between Online and Mainstream Media, Government and Public

Tuesday, 15th January, House of Commons, Committee Rooms, 11am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm

Globalisation strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski[1] recently identified accelerating social change driven by “instant mass communications”, which have been cumulatively stimulating “a universal awakening of mass political consciousness[2].” In the UK, the consequent gulfs between public opinion and government, and between online and mainstream media are widening precariously: poll after poll details public trust plummeting[3][4][5] all round while many political activist websites have grown as busy as mainstream e-commerce and media outlets.

As public interest advocates, the Association of McKenzie Friends[6] seeks to acknowledge and address these gaps as a matter of urgency. In the wake of debilitating systemic failures such as Hillsborough, Savile and Leveson, we will be presenting an evidence-based analysis of “Seven Deadly Syndromes” that infect public life. Panel members are:

In the afternoon, John Hemming MP will be replaced by Austin Mitchell MP[14] who has not only been a mainstream journalist but also an expert of monetary reform and victims of white collar crimes for years. More

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

2 Comments

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.

German – British Musings about ‘The Rule of Law’ and its Enforcement – on a Rainy Sunday

7 Comments

Bernard Reemtsma may sound familiar to smokers, especially German ones. But Stuart Wilkie, formerly a ski racer with a spinal injury and Chairman of the Justice Society in Scotland, is now fighting a man who claims to have that name in Norfolk. Mr Reemtsma seems to have paid a few people to get what he wants, never mind his neighbours: he wants their land and their house.  What does it take to do so?

In a nutshell:

  1. pay people to use brute force and a bulldozer to remove a fence
  2. pay lawyers
  3. bribe Court staff,  Judges and the Land Registry to ignore the Rule of Law
  4. ask for us McKenzie Friends to come to the rescue…

Then there is this English Patriot in Germany Mike James who published rather explosive material in 2004. I found it, after it had been suggested to me that Bush blackmailed Blair into Iraq and Afghanistan by threatening to publish the UK list of some 763 “VIP Paedophiles”. Thus I can guide readers to

Yet another class of victims: servicemen who don’t get pensions they are entitled to

7 Comments

MoDPensions.com only tells one story that is representative of how many servicemen???

The Committee on Standards in Public Service thinks that everything is hunky dory, but does invite the general public to provide input. The Nolan principles that public servants should act on are: Selflessness, Integrity, Objectivity, Accountability, Openness, Honesty, Leadership.

If all that was operational, I wouldn’t have to publish most of my websites for Victims of Fraud! I wouldn’t have had to send this email either:

Dear Sir Christopher

Re: Ethics and Best practice – what works?

It is with great pleasure that I read about your invitation to the public to express views and experiences regarding Ethics and Best practice and learned about the seven principles Selflessness – Integrity - Objectivity - Accountability – Openness – Honesty – Leadership. I’m afraid they make me laugh, given my experiences…

anyone of those offended or injured can draw it to the attention of the court of law and seek to have the law enforced

3 Comments

Here’s a page that I was sent to make me feel encouraged in my wish to point out irregularities observed in courts. It’s taken from the book Administrative Law and quoted Lords Denning and Diplock:

I regard it as a matter of high constitutional principle that if there is good ground for supposing that a government department or a public authority is transgressing the law,or is about to transgress it, in a way which offends or injures thousands of Her Majesty’s subjects, then anyone of those offended or injured can draw it to the attention of the court of law and seek to have the law enforced, and the courts in their discretion” can grant whatever remedy is appropriate.

But it’s like the Bible: the words are beautiful, but what counts are the deeds – of pastors or judges, it seems: whether they are capable of living what they preach, write or were taught. However, how do we learn to walk our talk? I guess, only by life’s experiences…

It’s official: British corruption is more common than recognised, report warns

23 Comments

Here’s the article in The Telegraph and here’s the original report by Transparency International, the global coalition against corruption. Its 2-year study Money, Politics, Power: Corruption Risks in Europe makes nine headline recommendations for the UK and can be read online here.

The most pertinent ones I can subscribe to from my observation of victims of white collar crimes:

  1. in the Judiciary corruption is ‘very strong’ and the worst of all institutions analysed
  2.  given the links between overseas corruption and corruption with the uK, the role of the Government’s Anti-Corruption Champion (ACC) should be extended to cover corruption within the UK. The ACC should provide an annual report to Parliament
  3. a high-level response is needed to tackle corruption more effectively
  4. politicians, government, business and institutions throughout the UK urgently need to understand and accept that corruption is a problem in key sectors
  5. NHS, social housing and prison service are mentioned specifically, besides sports!
