What a relief to see the mainstream media cottoning on to what, so far, only Christopher Booker reported in The Telegraph:
In his witness statements
, John Hemming MP did refer to the fact that the Nigerian Parliament got involved in the Musa case
, but they have not been able to prevent the Musas from being imprisone on 28th November.
With a view to demonstrating their innocence, here is a family album

The Standard Newspater [Nigeria] reports for the third time on the Musas whose six children were stolen by Haringey Council.
Who will bring the children to the High Commission of Nigeria, if not their parents???

Butlin Cat calls him “Campaigner Extraordinaire” on his latest blog. I’ve called him hero, martyr and crusader.
And now he spells out his reasons for being on hunger strike in Cardiff Prison, getting ready for his hearing before Cardiff Magistrates Court on Nov. 10th. Be there, if you can, to witness “real live entertainment”…
On Nov 14th and 28th he is scheduled to defend his allegations for Criminal Damage and a Public Order Charge. For he wanted to ensure that the secrecy of family courts is replaced by the openness of criminal Magistrates Courts.
But the really crazy allegation he may have to face is Conspiracy to Abduct Children: neither Maurice nor the Musas know where the children are!

Joe Dowling did it, too: commit an offence to be arrested. He was deceived by his trusted family solicitor and wanted to provoke the Law Society into restoring his faith in the British Justice System.
Maurice also still believes that the right judges and the right politicians will sort things out. But as long as he watches the Musa parents suffer from the separation of their children, he will try to help.
On Friday, Mr J Bird of Powell Spencer & Partners promised in the presence of two police officers that, on Monday, the Musas could pick up the documents that were missing from the small pile they were given.
On Sunday morning, Maurice had the bright idea to ask for one of the 70 solicitors of the firm to represent him, when he was held in custody in Tottenham Police Station. However, that female solicitor did not leave her report behind. Today, she refused to acknowledge to have been there.
Maurice was also refused the remainder of the documents, of course and is being held in Kentish Town Police Station for a Public Order Offence. I believe that a bit of a kafuffle occurred when he tried to identify the solicitor who interviewed him on a list of staff…
He was very impressed by the Magistrates and the Duty Solicitor in Haringey on Monday morning. Will he before similarly “just” minds tomorrow???
