MIND THE GAP between policies and reality: court secrecy, unlawful imprisonments and the national inquiry into organised child sexual abuse

Dear Lord Chancellor

OPEN LETTER

Given your laudable policies, this is to draw your attention to issues that I find rather disconcerting as a non-involved observer and independent web publisher:

  1. The ‘ghosting’ of Brian Pead across at least 7 prisons in 8 weeks as a way of ensuring that he can’t communicate with supporters or legal representation:
    • Since his current imprisonment is the third unlawful occasion following his alerting Lambeth Council of a teacher grooming children, I set up nationalinquiry.wordpress.com trusting that his case will be investigated properly.
    • He is the victim of Bexleyheath, Essex and Norfolk
    • Having just received the details of how his book From Hillsborough to Lambeth was banned, one can only be shocked by the behaviour of the solicitors (Pinson Masons) and judges (Tugendhat) involved.
    • His book contains the link to public domain articles about the Police controlling the industry of adult and child pornography.
  2. The extreme and exceptional case of Maurice J Kirk BVSc being bullied and harassed by South Wales Police:
    • His 20 year long civil damages claim is constantly being blocked and hijacked and the list of cui bono seems to get longer rather than shorter.
    • His extremely unlawful treatment in HMP Cardiff and HMP Swansea as the oldest prisoner there is so disgusting that one has to wonder why someone the nation should be proud of (because of his flight to Australia in his historic aeroplane) can be put on MAPPA level 3 as if he was one of the most dangerous terrorists!
    • If soo many people are afraid of losing their job and pension, why don’t you save face and offer compensation to victims of white collar crimes rather than try to keep a lid on what the Daily Mail calls Democracy? No, Britain is now a judicial dictatorship and it’s time for a revolution.
  3. In short, it seems that the abuse of power andposition in the judiciary has become too much:

OUT OF HOLLOWAY: at what cost? With what damages and what irreparable traumas?

9 Comments

Melissa Laird is the US mother who was deported on 12 September whilst her child is kept for adoption. She received her Deportation Order made on 29 November 2012 on 12 December 2012 in Holloway prison. This delay in post going in and out seems to be standard for prisoners who try to defend themselves and act as Litigants in Person.

In fact, it is utterly amazing, if anybody succeeds with any litigation whilst ‘inside’. I have not only seen this first hand with Melissa but also with Maurice Kirk, the flying vet who has been exceptionally bullied and harassed and extremely damaged by South Wales Police and the Director of Caswell Clinic.

Melissa was dumped in Dulles Airport Washington – without ‘reception and rehabilitation’ as would have been required by law. But the Rule of Money has long replaced the Rule of Law in the family courts, it seems.

Her son has not seen his mum since 13 December 2011, when he was 4 years old. For anybody to claim it’s in the child’s best interest, is farcical, to put it mildly. No proper assessment of the child’s best interest has taken place anyhow. But it’s much more fun for Social Workers to travel to Spain to gather ‘evidence’ and justify their child snatching by presenting a ‘paper reality’ to judges who sanction ‘on paper’ whatever separates children from their parents and grandparents – for the sake of sex, money or both…

How to stop cover up is the real issue addressed by John Hemming MP on Channel IV news:

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…

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!

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.

Completely unacceptable statistics about child ‘protection’

21 Comments

It took one shock after the other:

  1. whilst being “on remand”, they are treated as if they were convicted criminals
  2. they are not being ‘produced’ in the right court at the right time
  3. the criminal proceedings are artificially being drawn out
  4. the civil proceedings were hoping to get the children adopted while the parents are in prison…

Statistics show what the Musas are experiencing is far from a one-off exception, even though their case is acknowledge to be the most evil and corrupt one:

McKenzies coming to the Rescue of Litigants in Person and Parents whose Children got Snatched

Old Bailey

So far, I called them ‘victims turned starfighters’ and they will all have acted as McKenzie Friend in that learning process.

Now Belinda McKenzie (!)  came up with the idea of an Association of McKenzie Friends to give ‘public interest advocacy’ more clout and presence in the legal process.

Maurice Kirk experiences the loopholes in the law in prison as a litigant in person. The Musas have been criminalised by Haringey Council after they kidnapaped their six children and have very similar experiences in prison:

  • not being ‘produced’ by the prison staff for court hearings
  • not being able to meet court deadlines when McKenzie Friends are not allowed legal visits to take documents in and out of prison
  • not being able to type and photocopy documents.

Turning McKenzie Friends into McKenzie Angels

19 Comments

McKenzie Friends are ‘amateur lawyers’ who help and support Litigants in Person.

When Maurice Kirk asked for support in the courtroom, blogger Angela suggested we need “guardian angels”.

McKenzie Angel T-shirtHence McKenzie Angels were created as labels for those helpful humans who come for moral and / or legal support.

A comment from Paulette Cooper:

A large angel with scales of justice in one hand stood behind a victim which has his head in his hands in despair comes to mind for a drawing. Angel’s other hand on his shoulder and a pile of court docs on a desk in front of him/her.

Maybe a better idea still would be if those McKenzie Angels could come to a consensus on how to tackle the most common problems in law, maybe even have those in some written ‘fact sheets’ ready to send to victims to do with the most common issues and that each new victim could be connected with their own McKenzie Angel who would be there to help them find a way through the mire.
