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:

WHOM DO YOU ASK for help when the State bullies you for whistleblowing on paedophilia – especially once imprisoned?

33 Comments

14 07 23 from Hillsborough to Lambeth Front coverFirst I saw the fraudulent imprisonment of Vicky Haigh when I acted as McKenzie Friend for her, together with Liz Watson who was also sent to prison on fabricated charges. Vicky had asked Social Services for help with the abuse her daughter was experiencing from her father.

  • First lesson learned: never ever ask Social Services for help!
  • Daddy does things to me he shouldn’t, and now I can’t see mummy any more.
  • The rest is a network of corrupt guys at the right place in the right institution…

Then I saw Gloria and Chiwar Musa being imprisoned as two of the some 200 parents who are sent to prison by secret family courts every year, as Harriet Harman admitted in Parliament in 2006.

  • Second lesson: never think you can trust a judge, jury or another judge, let alone the Social Workers, Police Officers, lawyers and NHS staff involved.
  • The eldest daughter was molested by the son of her foster carer.
  • The second daughter told her mum that they were taken to dark places at night where there are only men.
  • The son asked: mummy, what is paedophilia?

Then we visited Melissa Laird in HMP Holloway. She had been advised to plead guilty to get her son back.

And we saw how prison conditions in HMP Holloway are just as bad as in HMP Cardiff for Maurice Kirk – especially to stop Litigants in Person from advancing their case. At the same time, it is impossible to get trustworthy lawyers. And now not even Legal Aid.

  • Next lesson: Complaint procedures don’t result in anything.
  • HMP Governors hide behind communication walls and Police or Prison Inspectors are not responsible or find other excuses.

The latest ‘cri de coeur’ comes from whistleblower Brian Pead who now calls himself William Brian Freeman. He has been in 5 prisons since 14 May 2014.

So I wrote: Dear Sir or Madam More

MOUNTING CONCERN as more Portuguese parents lose children to British social services

11 Comments

 

14 06 07 AlgarveThis is the story written by Natasha Donn and published by the ALGARVE Resident on 07 June 2014:

Following the desperate story of the Pedros – absolved of wrong-doing in the police case that stripped them of their children but still waiting miserably to be reunited as a family – more news has come out of UK to support allegations of a high-level forced adoption ring involving thousands of children.

Público newspaper reports this week of up to five cases where Portuguese immigrants in Britain have had their children taken from them – without charges being pressed or indeed proven. They are reported to be warned that any communication, online or to the press, could mean that they never see their children again.

John Hemming, the Liberal Democrat MP who has been fighting for Justice for Families for years, claims parents are threatened with imprisonment if they speak out – and that this would mean the loss of their parental rights.

McKenzie Friend adviser Ian Josephs also told Público that as opposed to criminal courts where people are considered innocent until proven guilty, the opposite is the case in family courts.

“There, parents are considered guilty until they can prove their innocence” – and that is if their case ever gets to the family court.

In many cases children are removed from their parents and simply not returned even if the parent is not charged.

This appears to be the case in the situation involving at least one of the Portuguese parents in the Público investigation.

The 29-year-old lost her five-month-old daughter after taking her to hospital with a bruise on her head.

WHAT DO Maurice Kirk, Robert Green, Gloria Musa and Melissa Laird have in common? Time to Join Dots!

They are all in prison, except for Melissa Laird who was deported after 18 months in HMP Holloway so that her son could be kept for adoption – by Barnet Council…

Maurice Kirk is the oldest prisoner in HMP Cardiff. Here we visited Melissa with Maria, a serious victim of false imprisonment and other fraudulent white collar crimes.

Maurice has tried to help Gloria and Chiwar Musa as McKenzie Friend.

  • Robert has been helping Anne Greig‘s campaign for justice for her daughter and brother.
  • This petition is collecting signatures of support to get him released.
    14 04 21 Free Robert Green

Gloria and Chiwar Musa had their five children taken in April 2011 by Haringey Council.

  • Since then their sixth child was taken, returned and taken again;
  • Their seventh child was born in HMP Holloway and taken at birth – despite Sir James Munby’s judgement re Baby M R of 2003 about the right to breastfeeding.

Melissa Laird was in the next cell to Gloria in HMP Holloway. More

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

15 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.
