HELP FOR THE PEDROS required @ Police Station in Grantham: accused of abducting their children

14 Comments

I wrote about the Pedros who were with us in Brussels on their site.

The photos I took between St. Pancras, the EU Parliament and back in St. Pancras are on https://www.facebook.com/sabine.k.mcneill/photos_all

And the phone call from Grantham Police Station came at 8.51 this morning to ask whether I can come up to represent them.

Or will they have to accept the ‘duty solicitor’ because we are not registered in the National Call Centre, because we work ‘pro bono’, i.e. for the common good rather than for money? The Police Officer called me ‘rude’ when I suggested he seemed to stumble over the term ‘McKenzie Friend‘.

We made history without knowing what the future will be: in Brussels and now at the Police Station in Grantham where the Pedros’ children were held for 72 hours after they were snatched in April 2013.

  • Just like with the Muas, allegations were fabricated after the snatch;
  • subsequent admissions by the oldest 12-year-old boy to have lied were ignored – just as his letters to the judge;
  • the consent for adoption was dispensed with ‘in the interest of the children’ – that’s why I presented Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent to the Petitions Committee of the EU Parliament. More

LEARNING by DOING: Small Money Claims on-line or off-line? For a fixed fee plus a variable court fee? On this or that website?

13 11 08 MoneyClaimsUKI distinctly prefer to communicate online than use paper and ‘snail mail’. So when my main McKenzie Friend (lay legal 13 11 08 Money Claim Onlineadvisor) told me to submit a ‘counterclaim’ to Salford, I found this Money Claims UK site which is supposed to serve the litigant in person, i.e. let people settle claims without lawyers. It is supposedly the central repository for claims since March 2012. But now I can’t find the page any more where I read the exact date. I think it said 19.

First, I was wondering why I should become a ‘member’.

Then the software was highly unusable when I tried to upload files that were too long. No proper messages told me so and I wasted a lot of time before I figured it out.

Then my membership was recorded twice and I was sent a link to something that didn’t work.

Then the language was un-understandable to appreciate what was going on: a friendly person emailed that I had not paid the £54 fee required (a fixed fee of £45 plus VAT). Well, as a senior citizen and poor inventor I knew that I was below the limit of the permissible £13,000 income. Hence I should have been ‘fee exempt’. I had learned that as as my McKenzie Friend is helping me to appeal in a court battle with my landlord. More

COURT HEARINGS to support victims turned starfighters in Norfolk and St. Albans

Leave a comment

I’m using the superb platform www.meetup.com to support people in their court hearings. It’s VERY important for the Court to see ‘bodies’, for supporters to network, for victims to know that they are not alone and for bloggers to spread the word online.

Please visit http://www.meetup.com/victims-unite/ for this special kind of ‘activism’ or learning to become a McKenzie Friend.

The first hearing on 10 September is to support Michael Doherty in St. Albans.

The second one on 13 September to support Brian Pead in Norfolk.

EXCEPTIONAL and extreme cases of maladministration and mismanagement?

How do you compare injustice, fraud, failures of ‘the system’ and explain the width of the gap between the Rule of Law (and correctness) and the Rule of Money (and corruption)?

Victims Unite started in August 2010 by publishing individual cases that were begun on Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694. Since then I

  • accompanied some 50 general and another 50 or so cases in family courts
  • posted 474 articles
  • and 815 followers are reading regularly about ‘us’, the victims turning into starfighters, campaigners, online activists and McKenzie Friends and ‘them’, the ‘public service’ organisations ranging from police, prison, courts, the House of Commons and House of Lords to the Government in Downing Street.

13 08 31 statsToday, the 250,000 mark of visitors will be passed. And I am sorry to say that the only thing that has improved is my ability to ‘see through’ what’s happening more and more:

  • public officials commit white collar crimes
  • they deny and lie
  • they cover each other
  • they commit more crimes to cover up.

No matter which ‘case’ comes before courts, no matter which story I try to publish, no matter who tries to get justice and compensation, it’s never a level playing field, for there is always one individual that is being victimised by many officials who are ‘just doing their job’.  More

THE JUDICIAL Working Group on Litigants in Person: Report – advocating CONFIDENCE in JUDICIAL IMPARTIALITY

17 Comments

13 07 06 LiPs ReportThis 55-page report was sent by Jeff Lampert of Help4LiPs.

Constituted by the Master of the Rolls, the Working Group was formed in December 2012 following the expected rise in the number of litigants in person (LiPs) after the Legal Aid reforms in April 2013.

The contents covers:

Foreword

  1. Introduction
  2. Overview and executive summary
  3. Issues that arise when dealing with LiPs
  4. Training and guidance for the judiciary
  5. The rules
  6. McKenzie Friends and other lay assistants
  7. Vexatious litigants
  8. Conclusions and summary of recommendations

As always in these kinds of documents, the intentions are good and honourable:-

  • Access to justice is the constitutional right of every citizen.
  • The importance of a positive approach to litigants in person.

The question is: how will this ‘positive approach’ be implemented?

  • It’s like with the Law. It doesn’t need changing. It just needs to be followed! More

PRIM and PROPER? On the Openness and Transparency of Courts – from the Cradle to the Grave

13 01 14 TyrannyOnce again: you only believe it when it hits you yourself or someone you know:

  • Norman Scarth had to flee the country he nearly died for in WWII, for he did not get justice during 17 years he experienced as harassment that included imprisonment
  • his crime: using a recording device without having asked for permission first
  • today he was sentenced to 28 days but suspended for a year – so it won’t happen unless he breaks the law again.

In response to mailing everybody who had signed the petition to free him, Mike wrote that he also had to flee the country, after his mum became a victim of the Court of ‘Protection’ and the Office of the Public ‘Guardian’ in the UK.

  • Their story is one of unfortunately many where officials make sure they can put their hands on any of the assets involved.

LEARNING by DOING and Helping by Being – in and out of Courts, on- and off-line

13 01 19 MeetupWhen a mother whose second child is being taken – without paperwork – calls for help because she realises that her solicitor is not acting in her interest, I’m going into a higher gear:

  1. I invited her to join us at our meeting the House of Commons so that she could realise she is not alone (what a consolation…)
  2. I put her court hearing on the Meetup list of events to facilitate support – for her, Michael Doherty and Norman Scarth next week
  3. I talked to other experienced McKenzie Friends to try to understand.

It appears that the “second generation radar” helps Social Services to get hold of children, especially at birth, i.e. the mother was in care as a teenager and thus known to Social Services.

When she was pregnant, she could do whatever – it never satisfied Social Services… So the first baby was taken at 7 months, without paperwork, and the second one 6 days after birth, again without paperwork.

The most experienced Ian Josephs writes that breast feeding is a fundamental human right for mothers and the right NOT to be removed at birth for babies. But Social Services, in collusion with Police, Courts and Judges, are above the law, aren’t they!?…  More

Child Snatching is one of Seven Deadly Syndromes and Seven Media Cover-Ups

31 Comments

It is not easy to make sense out of shocking stories that question everything we are made to believe. But thinking our own thoughts and following our own feelings is part of learning to be alive as a free spirit and free-standing individual.

Here is Light Entertainment – Andrew O’Hagan writes about child abuse and the British public – an eye opener into the paedo culture at the BBC – for the uninitiated reader.

Why is British light entertainment so often based on the sexualisation of people too young to cope? And why is it that we have a press so keen to feed off it? Is it to cover the fact, via some kind of willed outrage, that the culture itself is largely paedophile in its commercial and entertainment excitements?

Many victims have become starfighters and McKenzie Friends, rescuers who are helping victims. But Hillsborough and Savile are helping to identify the perpetrators as part of seven deadly syndromes and seven media cover-ups.

Here is an Executive Summary and here are the seven syndromes – also exposed on Justice Denied - in an even more shocking way, I think:

1. Secret Societies: The Private Lives of Public People – as Freemasons and other secret societies where secrets are used to blackmail members who are required to protect each other – at no matter what cost.
2. Mainstream Media Cover-Ups: Strategies for Gagging, Controlling and generally Dumbing Down – so that online publications have become a necessary expression of ‘public interest’
3. Crimes against Children and Families: Paedophilia, Child Snatching and Premature Sexualisation – the tip of the iceberg of white collar crimes, using falsified official documents, secret family courts and the most farcical attempts to appear ‘lawful’
Reporting of Fraud 4. Reporting Fraud and White Collar Crimes: Public Services as Perpetrators and Non-Investigators – when employers are raking in money, while employees are ‘just doing their job’ – often with kickbacks
Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694 5. The Illegality of Usury and Wars: How Successive Governments Ignore National Law and International Treaties – illustrating how institutions are used as shells and firewalls, while their employees do not deliver the institutions’ purpose
6. Policing: Who Guards the Guards? Royal Charters are a key legal mechanism to protect the Police as one of many institutions
7. CONTEST: How the Counter-Terrorism Strategies Drive Miscarriages of Justice – in the follow-up of 9/11 and 7/7 everybody on the net knows, but the Establishment ‘knows better’…

Judiciary Guilty of Criminal Acts… especially in family courts

20 Comments

“Judiciary Guilty of Criminal Acts…” is the slogan for the 2-week demo outside the Royal Courts of Justice, starting Monday 23rd April, from 9:30am to 4:30pm. Please come round for net-working with likeminded spirits!

… especially in secret family courts which should be replaced by open criminal courts

… in bankruptcy and insolvency procedures where we placed the worst known cases before the relevant Ministers – without any redress or change, let alone ‘remedy’ a la Article 13 of the European Convention of Human Rights

… when covering up crimes by colleagues in the NHS, Inland Revenue, Police and other public ‘authorities’.

when turning innocent victims into political prisoners:

  • the Musas for daring to stand up to Haringey Council
  • Maurice J Kirk BVSc for daring to challenge South Wales Police
  • other women whose children were taken and whom I visit in HMP Holloway – trying to get the privileges of LEGAL visits for McKenzie Friends, i.e. the right to take papers in and out – for prisoners who are on remand and who don’t have legal representation.

Meanwhile, even Reuters is wondering: Is Britain more corrupt than it thinks?

Judiciary Guilty of Criminal Acts: 10-Day Campaigning outside Royal Courts of Justice starting April 23rd

6 Comments

That’s quite an effort to make: ten days of demoing from 9:30 to 4:30 each day!

But the Campaign for Truth and Justice has done it before. Its founder Caul Grant has spent six years in prison under totally false pretenses, after he lost his son to the NHS. Not surprisingly his marriage and job, too…

He writes:

We plan to be there from about 9:30 am to 4:30 pm each day, so far there has been a very positive feedback and we have made links with others who are disgruntled with the system.

We have also begun a leafleting campaign, naming and shaming judges who have directly played a part in perverting the due course and have thus provoked a reaction from the State.

Visible publicity is a must if we should have any real hope of achieving our aims and objectives. I have also discovered the power of Twitter, its been great to reach out to others and have had many RTs.
