Norman @ the RCJ on Thursday August 18 – thanks to Writ of Habeas Corpus

While I collated the comments by the first 729 (!!!) signers of our petition to Free Norman from Leeds Prison, the Royal Courts of Justice responded to Chris Jarvis’ Writ of Habeas Corpus:

Dear Team Norman,

I would like to inform you all that today, after many phone calls and applications and re-application, I have finally had our application for Writ of Habeas Corpus approved.

In accordance with the Writ, on Thursday 18th August 2011 Norman Scarth, along with his Jailer will be brought before the Royal Courts of Justice (possibly via video link from Leeds), and I will be arguing the case for release of Mr Scarth in the wider public interest.

The Jailer will have to give good cause as to why Mr Scarth should not be released.

I ask ALL of you for your support to attend the Royal Courts of Justice to as these are your rights that we are attempting to uphold.

This is history in the making as far as we know for a man to stand up for another man, and this to have bypassed the solicitors and barristers that would normally deal with such matters.

At the moment I do not have a time allocation for the hearing, there will be further updates as we get them.

Kindest of regards,

Chris Jarvis

    At last, some good news. Let’s hope that common sense prevails and the will of the people takes precedence over judicial self interest and mutual protection.

    • “Judicial self-interest and mutual protection”! Very well put, Colin!!!

      I’ll put that in my daily email to Norman!

      Just wish I knew whether I’m wasting those 30p and whether they do get delivered!!!…
