THE CROWN JUDICIAL FUNCTION IN JERSEY – ON FIRE

The End was always going to look like this.

[First posted on 17.10.2013 – this important posting  – gets to the heart of the judicial corruption in Crown tax-haven Jersey, which is instrumental in the disastrous wholesale child-abuse concealment, and the concealment of rape and other serious crimes. Such is the depth and brazenness of that judicial corruption, the “purported” child-abuse “public-inquiry” in Jersey has actually been run out of the offices of the fatally, terminally conflicted Ogier Group – as explained in this up-date of 14.08.2016]

To get a good understanding of the latest attempts by Jersey’s corrupt establishment to shut-down free-speech using embezzled public money, watch the exclusive interview I gave to Voice for Children, one of Jersey’s leading independent media:

Clik here for my original  exclusive video interview on the Voice for Children site.  

I recorded the interview with Jersey citizen media site, Voice for Children, on Wednesday 16th, and wasn’t aware that the “judge” hearing this “case” was Julian Clyde-Smith.

[UP-DATE – 14.08.2016 – That being the Julian Clyde-Smith – part-time corrupt “judge” & lawyer of The Ogier Group – read this: –

http://freespeechoffshore.nl/stuartsyvretblog/the-ogier-group/

That being The Ogier Group – which entity is catastrophically conflicted in the Jersey child-abuse cover-ups – and other criminal cover-ups – but which fact  – far from being considered an obstacle to @JerseyInquiry being based in Ogier’s back-office – the Committee of Inquiry must have clearly thought that doing so would be highly effective as an act of gross witness-intimidation against the trouble-makers such as me – having already been the dramatic victim of The Ogier Group’s staggering – brazen – corruption. ]
It’s quite marvellous really – funny, in the manner of the blackest of farces – that Julian Clyde-Smith – and his equally conflicted friends, such as Philip Bailhache, William Bailhache, and the man who chose and appointed him to hear this case – the equally fatally conflicted Michael Birt – all Her Majesty’s Privateers, appointed & empowered by Her direct, personal “Letters Patent” – think Clyde-Smith can be used as a judge in any matter concerning me without inflicting greater damage and discredit on themselves.
It’s especially foolhardy of them – in one of those ways which pushes London’s protection of them well beyond any semblance of legal credibility – given that Julian Clyde-Smith is actually subject of detailed and most serious complaints of judicial corruption, of which London are aware.
Still, ours is not to reason why. Instead, let’s take full advantage of this display of stupidity to amplify yet further – and provide further evidence – of the points I make in the video interview with VFC – by considering the hopeless – the frankly illegal – position of Julian Clyde-Smith – and The Ogier Group.
There’s nothing complex about the situation; all reasonably well-informed people know perfectly well the basic legal requirements for the good administration of justice. For example – ‘not only must justice be done – it must be seen to be done’. Which means that a court and the judges who sit in it, cannot have any kind of pre-existing involvement in the cases which come before them; they can’t have any kind of association with the parties to the case; they can’t have conflicts of interest; they can’t have a direct – express – personal interest themselves in the outcome of a case.
That is the established law on judicial processes and the good administration of justice. It was settled, uncontroversial English law – long before there even was a European Convention on Human Rights.
It’s simply common sense, that courts and judicial processes have to be pure – whiter-than-white – and beyond any kind of contamination.
None of the Jersey court proceedings involving me meet that test. Indeed – they don’t even get close. But for the moment, let’s just focus upon the involvement of Julian Clyde-Smith – and the legal business “The Ogier Group” – which now – in addition to having dramatic, de facto control over the Crown prosecution and Crown judicial functions in Jersey – were recently given similar control by the Home Affairs Minister – over the Crown policing function in Jersey.
The Ogier Group – through people such as Michael Birt, Tim Le Cocq, Jonathan White and Julian Clyde-Smith – control the “law” in Jersey. I’ve written about this in more detail previously; here’s the link; –
But let’s just quickly consider the fatal position of Julian Clyde-Smith – when his involvement at all – in any matter concerning me – is tested against that settled law on the need for judicial purity and objectivity.
Late in 2006, early 2007 – with the assistance of survivors and whistleblowers, I became the first ever States member – the first ever public official of any kind in Jersey – to seriously investigate, discover, and speak-out against decades of concealed child-abuse and cover-ups. For example, the Blanche Pierre Group Home and the years of monstrous abuse conducted by Jane and Alan Maguire. But in addition to that case, there were many others – such as the illegal and grossly abusive long-term solitary confinement regimes used against children with mental health issues in Greenfields – and the regime of savage violence that had been used for years against children in Les Chennes.
In addition to those many evidenced crimes of child-abuse – I was also exposing the ‘system’ in Jersey – such as the policing, prosecution and judicial systems which had permitted and covered-up all of that abuse.
As is well-documented  this led to the Jersey establishment uniting and doing absolutely all it could to obstruct, damage, abuse, intimidate, harass and oppress me. A campaign of unlawful suppression which continues to this day.  This even involved a grossly illegal, anti-democratic conspiracy by senior civil servants with the support of Crown Officers, to engineer my removal as Health & Social Services Minister. This was witnessed by the Police Chief Graham Power, who opposed it, and wrote a file-note in July 2007, in which he says: –
“BO and the others were persistent and I was left with the clear impression that they were attempting to draw me, in my capacity as Chief of Police, into a civil service led attempt to remove a Minister from Office.”
That plot was a criminal conspiracy – not only against me – but against the vulnerable children and victims I was seeking to help.
Even though I was removed from office as H & SS Minister in the illegal coup, I carried on strongly fighting for the interests of vulnerable children and against the cover-ups as a back-bench member of the Jersey parliament.
So – referring again to the established judicial law – which requires – without exception – non-contaminated, objective judges, it is a clear legal fact that – given that activity I was engaged in – seeking to uncover and expose and prevent child-protection failures – any judge who had in any way been involved in any such child-protection failures or who was friends and allies of those who had – cannot then be a lawfully objective judge in any matter concerning me.
That is simply the established law.
Julian Clyde-Smith is close – long-term – personal friends with various public officials with a known and evidenced involvement in efforts to prevent the child-protection failures being exposed.
For example – Anton Skinner, Philip Bailhache, Tim Le Cocq, William Bailhache – and Michael Birt.
So – here we have a judge – Julian Clyde-Smith – with very close professional and personal associations with an extensive range of people who have a dramatic personal interest in continuing to bury their own many past failures as public officials; these are people who have a serious interest in obstructing, damaging, discrediting and oppressing people like Graham Power and me – who were striving to expose those failures.
But notwithstanding that gross and multifaceted conflict of interest – Julian Clyde Smith has heard cases involving me – and quiet extraordinarily – continues to do so – as we learn today.
When he heard my first judicial review application on the 27th September 2010 – at 7.00 a.m on a Monday morning – I asked Clyde-Smith to declare all of his conflicts of interest (an entirely proper and reasonable thing to do.) Clyde-Smith simply flatly refused to do so.
He then proceeded to run the Attorney General’s case for him, because the then Solicitor General – Howard Sharp, previously of the conflicted, racketeering City of London law outfit 7 Bedford Row who have simply immense connections at the very highest levels of the UK legal / judicial establishment – who was representing the AG in court was so incompetent, he didn’t understand that executive actions can be challenged via judicial review.
That hearing – because of Julian Clyde-Smith’s refusal to declare his conflicts of interest – and the fact he WAS conflicted – and the overt unlawful bias he displayed in favour those involved in child-abuse cover-ups  – was simply a manifestly corrupt process.
But – things get worse than that.
A lot worse.
As most people recognise – because let’s face it, it’s obvious and you’d be a fool not to see it – a real reason for the illegal suspension of Police Chief Graham Power was to sabotage the child-abuse investigations. That the suspension of the Police Chief was an illegal conspiracy is now well-established on the evidence, as published by bloggers; it needn’t detain us now.
What is far less well known is that there were other corrupt motivations for the illegal suspension of the Police Chief.
One reason – in particular – was the most pressing – over all others.
It is this:
The Police were a matter of weeks, perhaps a couple of months away – from submitting to Attorney General William Bailhache rape charges against an immensely powerful Jersey establishment figure.
Had the file gone in – and the man been charged – he would have brought them all down with him.
The rape investigation had to be sabotaged. Hence the illegal suspension of Police Chief Graham Power.
The rapist was legally represented.
He was represented by The Ogier Group – and by Julian Clyde-Smith.
After the illegal suspension of Graham Power, the Police Chief attempted to judicially review the plainly unlawful actions against him.
When the Police Chief’s case came to court – it was heard – and thrown-out – by the fatally conflicted Julian Clyde-Smith.
Clyde-Smith did not declare the conflict of interests – that he was involved in representing the rapist.
So – the Police Chief who had been illegally suspended – mainly so as to protect a very powerful, establishment rapist from being charged with the crimes – finds himself before a court – presided over by a part-time judge – who is involved in legally representing the same rapist the police Chief had been unlawfully suspended so as to protect.
This is simply naked judicial corruption.
Julian Clyde-Smith is a criminal.
The position get’s worse.
After the Police Chief’s illegal suspension – I was approached by a constituent – a victim  of the rapist. They were profoundly demoralised – fearing – rightly as it turned out – that the Police Chief’s illegal suspension meant the case against their attacker would be sabotaged. I listened, and pledged to do what I could to help as a Senator, and I began asking questions, investigating the issues and trying to draw-out more information.
Within months of taking up the interests and protections of these rape victims, I too  – like Graham Power – had been illegally crushed by Jersey’s corrupt, self-protecting establishment.
When I attempted to judicially review the illegal actions taken against me, I too – like Police Chief Graham Power – found myself appearing before Julian Clyde-Smith.
And like Graham Power – one of the key – perhaps the key – motivations for the oppression conducted against me, was the protection of the rapist. For by that time – I was the last public figure the victims had fighting for them.
And like Graham Power – when I attempted to judicially review the obviously unlawful actions taken against me – I find myself appearing before the judge – Julian Clyde-Smith – who is involved in legally representing the rapist I was trying to get justice against on behalf of my constituents.
Julian Clyde-Smith refused to declare that conflict of interests. I only discovered it a long time afterwards.
This is simply stark judicial corruption.
Judicial corruption – of the most serious kind.
Julian Clyde-Smith knows, now – that I know.
He knows – because I put the matter to him in e-mail correspondence when I learnt of it – in 2012. Clyde-Smith couldn’t deny it.
Julian Clyde-Smith is a criminal.
To those in the island who have been – and continue to be victims of the powerful and the wealthy – to victims of child-abuse – and to the victims of the rapist – take courage and lift your spirits; we’re going to get there.
It was never going to be easy; the death-throes of a wholly corrupt feudal mafia grown decadent through centuries of being the “law” in Jersey, was always going to look like this.
Corrupt judges – concealing conflicts of interest – oppressing people who try to help the weak – oppressing victims – driving out of office political opponents – shutting down free-speech – imprisoning dissidents.
Panicking corrupt oligarchs – who have run out of ideas – and no-where left to turn – struggling down in the gutter, trying desperately to grasp “A Bigger Stick” in an attempt to beat-away the inevitable consequences of their maddened actions.
The Crown judicial function in Jersey – on fire.
The End was always going to look like this.

The Crown and Newspeak “Justice” – Part 1

THE BBC: ITS HATE-CAMPAIGNING AND TROLLING IN JERSEY:

Fatal Consequences Reported in Mail on Sunday.

“BBC man’s Twitter campaign helped kill my boy:”

The BBC – the bloated British-state media organisation which harboured, enabled, furnished victims for, and then covered-up child-rapist and necrophiliac Jimmy Savile – for at least four decades – continues to disgrace itself.

In a tragic story concerning the death of a good & well-intentioned man, the Mail on Sunday reports that a sustained campaign of cyber-bullying by a BBC presenter in Jersey led to the death of Simon Abbot.

The blog campaigning to expose the truth of what happened to Simon Abbot can be read here:

In the Mail on Sunday it is reported that BBC presenter Murray Norton pursued a “vicious and unrelenting cyber-bullying campaign” against Mr. Abbot.

I reproduce with full acknowledgments, the Mail on Sunday article below this posting.

I’m not – very sadly – in the least surprised at the story.

Those of us who hold different views to Jersey’s entrenched oligarchy can recount volumes of examples of obstruction, lies, bias, defamations, abuse, trolling, exclusions and marginalisations by the BBC in Jersey.

The BBC complaints procedure – even at regional, national and trust level – is so extraordinarily bad – essentially non-functioning – as to be beyond parody. It is a process – a complaints-structure – of the kind which might have been created in an Eastern-Bloc state; a process which exists to (a) give a false-impression of accountability; (b) provide a large bureaucracy in which favored apparatchiks be provided with work, and – most significantly – (c) to work primarily as an actual shield for the BBC, in a kind of Orwellian Newspeak inversion of its declared purpose of delivering “accountability”.

I’m aware of extremely diligent, detailed formal complaints pursued through the BBC process – complaints which covered, amongst closely related matters, the illegal suspension of Jersey’s Police Chief Graham Power – and the jaw-dropping refusal of the BBC to report vital public-interest stories arising from a wholly damning 94 page statement by Mr. Power.

I know that the BBC were supplied with a copy of the statement – because I was their source.

I e-mailed it to BBC Jersey boss Jon Gripton – and from that day to this – the BBC has refused to report the dramatic public-interest maters revealed in the Police Chief’s statement. That failure cannot be put down to the hick-town failure of the BBC’s ‘gone-native’ Jersey operation – as I’ve also supplied the document to the BBC at a national level.

The BBC’s child-abuser, Jimmy Savile – who spent a great deal of time in Jersey – and was very closely connected to BBC staff and associates in the island – featured in the child-abuse investigation being led by Police Chief Graham Power.

Simon Abbot is a tragic victim of a wholly decadent BBC culture. And sadly, he is not the only victim of cyber-bullying and the promotion of hate-sites by the BBC and its staff in Jersey.

Deputies Trevor & Shona Pitman are Jersey politicians – amongst the very few members of the island’s legislature – who have opposed the child-abuse cover-ups in the island; cover-ups which include crimes committed by Savile.

Both Deputies have been subjected to sustained, hate-filled campaigns of anonymous abuse, attacks from web ‘sock-puppets’, and organised astro-turfing. Nothing so surprising, really; comes with the territory – especially if you are opposing the entrenched and very powerful – who have a lot to lose.

But for such hate-sites – and the trolling they contain – to be pro-actively – and approvingly – referred to – and peddled – by the BBC?

THE BBC?

The organization was even more startlingly overtly corrupt, in joining in with – and promoting and supporting – a transparent astro-turfing campaign against a respected published USA author and investigative journalist Leah McGrath Goodman.

That was the BBC – pro-actively attacking – one of the few journalists seriously investigating decades of concealed child-abuse and the governance-failures which harbored and concealed that abuse.

BBC presenters in Jersey could scarcely move fast enough to join-in with and promote – a swarm of trolling, and organised astro-turfing plainly being co-ordinated and sock-puppeted by paid spin-doctors.

The conduct of the BBC in Jersey has long been utterly disgraceful.

Some analysis by me of the history of BBC behavior in, and towards Jersey, can be read here:

In the mean-time, I recommend the Mail on Sunday article, the original can be read here:-

Let us remember Simon Abbot – and ask just what the BBC imagines itself to be doing – down in the trolling gutter?

‘BBC man’s Twitter campaign helped kill my boy’: Devastated father claims offensive comments contributed to son’s heart attack

By the Mail on Sunday

  • BBC presenter was allegedly involved in a ‘cyber-bullying campaign’

  • He is accused of suggesting a man siphoned-off charity donations

  • Broadcaster Murray Norton strongly denies making the comments

  • The corporation say they are investigating the claims

The BBC is investigating allegations that one of its presenters was involved in a ‘vicious and unrelenting cyber-bullying campaign’ that contributed to the death of a 47-year-old man.

Murray Norton, who has been a BBC broadcaster for nearly 30 years, strongly denies making offensive comments on social networking sites about Simon Abbott, a computer software developer who died of a heart attack earlier this year.

Mr. Norton is said to have posted messages on Facebook and Twitter suggesting Mr. Abbott was a conman, siphoning off charity donations for his own use.

The alleged abuse encouraged dozens of ‘internet trolls’ to join in the harassment, some allegedly claiming they were taking their cue from Mr. Norton because of his status as a BBC broadcaster.

Police have said they were not aware of any evidence Mr. Abbott was misappropriating funds.

His father believes the alleged bullying hastened his son’s death.

And last night The Mail on Sunday discovered that the extent to which stress may have contributed to Mr. Abbott’s heart attack will be considered at the forthcoming inquest.

In his spare time Mr. Abbott ran a charitable foundation he set up in memory of his sister Samantha, who committed suicide in 2009 while suffering from post-natal depression.

Before his death in June, he had begun libel proceedings against Mr. Norton and other people whose false allegations, he claimed, had destroyed his reputation and turned him into a recluse, unable to work and frightened to leave his house.  A defense was lodged denying all  the claims.

However, his father, Jon Abbott, believes the alleged comments were posted by Mr. Norton and others and is demanding to know why BBC bosses apparently made no attempt to stop Mr. Norton spreading unfounded rumours about his son.

The retired journalist, who lives in South Africa, said: ‘Simon’s schemes failed to raise any money, partly due to his own shortcomings as a charity organiser and partly because it was an impossible task to make a success of any project that kept being slated on the internet.

‘The takings (for the trust) appear to have been pitiful. When he died, there was little money in his  bank account and the trust was £1,400 in the red. That doesn’t make him a conman.

‘It is deplorable for the BBC to stand on the sidelines. Norton was working for a national institution funded by the British taxpayer and was very much in the public eye.’

A BBC spokesman said: ‘We offer our sincere condolences to Mr. Abbott but strongly assert the BBC has treated the complaints in question seriously. No evidence of cyber-bullying was found and the complaint was not upheld.’

One of the online messages, purportedly written by the radio host, allegedly said: ‘Simon, if you are reading this – which, my friends, he might be – give it up, come clean on the finances of the trust, put the items you claim to have from the famous to good use. I’ll auction them for some people in real need instead of false events that help no one.’

One of Mr. Abbott’s tormentors, a woman from Cornwall, was questioned by police after he complained about her behaviour in November 2011. She was ‘given advice’ by officers but not charged with any offence.

But when Mr. Abbott’s father wrote to the BBC after his son’s death, the managing editor of BBC Radio Jersey, Jon Gripton, said that since  Mr. Norton was a ‘freelance artist’, the corporation had no responsibility for his off-air activities.

Mr. Norton’s links with the BBC, however, are long-established and he hosts a three-hour show on Radio Jersey every weekday morning.

Simon Abbott said in a court statement relating to his libel action: ‘People think I am a conman, dishonest, and even that I have made up the death of my sister. Because he (Norton) works for the BBC everyone follows he (sic) and joins in.’

Jon Abbott’s complaint against Mr. Norton is now being re-examined by one of the BBC’s most senior executives, David Holdsworth.

Mr. Norton combines his broadcasting career with running two restaurants in Jersey. Our calls to him went unanswered.
