Norman Scarth on Video in Royal Courts of Justice today – with some 30 Supporters

Norman Scarth’s case (summarised on the petition to free him) was presented today at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. Norman attended by video link from Leeds, was in good mental health, and he presented his case to the judge in very respectful and polite terms.

Judge Wyn Williams DENIED NORMAN DUE PROCESS OF THE LAW. He adjourned the case until next week, sending Norman back to prison. There was coverage by Russian TV, and a few members of the press.

The judge ordered that Norman be allowed to have contact with legal representation, which the prison has been denying him. However, he refused to order that Norman be given his prescription medication, thereby forcing Norman to be kept in torture for a further week.

The judge did not release Norman and there were loud shouts and cries from the public gallery. Judge Williams was seen to be shaking.

Judge Wyn Williams said the Court will notify the Secretary of State about next week’s hearing, as well as the Prison Governor, Paul Baker of Leeds Prison, who was supposed to have been present today, but was not.

Norman’s supporters are calling for the public WORLDWIDE to sign the public petition to FREE NORMAN, Arctic Convoy veteran hero, 86 years old who is being denied his human rights and medication in Leeds Prison, UK.

Will the public please help Norman Scarth by signing the petition as quickly as possible and telling all their friends?

Will you please help with the campaign by spreading the word far and wide, contacting the media with this story, and  any and all contacts you may have so that this will go viral and we will get more names on the petition?

We need many more by next week.

Please do send the link to the marvellous comments or print them and send them by mail:

    These arrogant and inhuman creatures!!!
    Is there not one of them who will admit that a member of the judiciary has made one almighty inhuman and unjust cock up?

    By adjourning the case until next week this one has ensured that Norman languishes in prison for longer than is neccessary if there is to be a just and fair outcome to all of this.

    Is he and the rest of the judiciary not aware of the world wide public support that is building up for Norman and their condemnation of the judicial decision to jail him?

    Through the avenue of the ‘Free Norman Petition’ the biggest jury in the world, – almost a thousand strong at the last count,- has expressed its disgust at Normans treatment and their contempt for the judge, and has called for Normans release.

    Are all of these people wrong and the judges right?
    What matters most?

    Justice for Norman, as called for by the public whose taxes pay their exhorbitant salaries, or, protecting their own power base and their mutual admiration society?

    It was Lord Denning who declared that it was preferable that innocent men should remain in prison rather than the integrity of the judiciary be impugned.

    In Gods Holy name, what integrity?

    Whatever happened to justice tempered with mercy?

    Is that just for the real criminals and not 86 years old war veterans?

    I agree in entirety Colin…..Despicable, inhumane and degrading treatment imposed on Norman Scarth a disabled/aged person, an in violation of (Articles 3, 6, 10, 14,) of Normans Humans Rights it appears, by the misfeasance or malfeasance of an alleged biased Judge, giving backing to a fellow Brethren Judge, possibly sharing similar Masonic interests?????

    Russian TV present?

    I said that would be the way to go as NS was an arctic convoy veteran.

    The Russians have had enough of our sanctimonious sh>t over the years about the rule of law and democracy and are more willing than British TV to expose the sham. Why extradite your citizens to a jurisdiction which locks people up on a whim or arbitrary decision.

    The freeview Russia Today? channel had a feature on a British SS child snatching case fairly recently. Presumably they are not subject to our draconian secrecy laws or do not tug the forelock to the laws of hypocrisy?.
