A London Diary.
Just a brief note as I plough through law books, authorities and proceedural guidance in preperation for the London Courts.
11.00 AM – Court No. 1 – Royal Courts of Justice.
Frankly, I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing – but, hopefully, I’ll pull the argument together in time.
The hearing is just the first step; if we win, we secure permission to set a date for a full trial of the facts, issues and evidence – which will be tested against the law and precident.
The view of those we’ve spoken with is that if we get permission – we’re 95% of the way to victory.
Not least because we have a significant quantity of deeply disturbing evidence tabled.
In the course of the last 2 years I have come to know many survivors – most of who simply never recieved justice in Jersey.
No doubt, some people in Jersey will regard this battle as bad for the island.
But, as with a serious illness, sometimes drastic steps have to be taken.
That these events are having to occour is not the fault of survivors, it’s not the fault of whistle-blowers – and it’s not the fault of me.
The cause of this battle is the failure of the administration of justice in Jersey – in all manner of horrifying ways – as will become clear.
But in particular – this is for the survivors – and those who didn’t survive – like Michael O’Conell.
If I fail – forgive me – I’ll have given it my best shot.
I’ll write tomorrow.
