The Jersey Government: “Willing to Lie, Make False Statements, & Destroy Evidence”.

Former Police Chief Graham Power
Describes the Evidenced Events.

“If the Jersey regime could do this to me and get away with it then think what they could do to others. Think what they could do to the victims of abuse. Think what they could do to you. Think about it.”

Graham Power, QPM.

Through Jersey’s citizen media, Graham Power, Queens Police Medal has been asked by many islanders to provide an overview of the events surrounding the illegal suspension enacted against him by Jersey’s Law Officers Department and their client civil servants and politicians.

Mr. Power has done so, with all the customary dispassionate, forensic, evidenced precision we have come to expect.

It is essential reading for any thinking person with an interest in the rule of law and of good governance in Jersey.

Jersey’s public authorities – the government, its prosecution system, its judiciary and its senior civil service – are a lawless syndicate, out of all civilised restraint and scrutiny. We passed, in truth several years ago, the stage at which any credible denial could be made of that fact, such is the sheer volume of documented evidence now available.

Every single institution in Jersey that wields any kind of influence or power has closed ranks and united – and has done so in exclusive protection of the strong and powerful, and in corrupt and repressive opposition to the vulnerable and the defenceless.

I’ve observed before how remarkable it is that the Jersey oligarchy did not possess as much as one ‘wise head’ amongst their number to have made them turn aside from the path of this madness. And “madness” is not in inappropriate word. Within the ranks of the Jersey establishment, there are now growing whispers amongst the more intelligent that are asking questions about the mental health of those who have been responsible for driving and controlling the events of the last four years.

And when your society is so obviously devoid of functioning checks and balances and the proper rule of law at the best of times, it is an alarming prospect to consider that amongst those at the very core of power might be some individuals living in an hallucinated parallel universe – the mirage of which is maintained in their eyes by the unquestioning deference of those around them.

It is a reality that Jersey’s quiescent middle-classes would be well-advised to wake up to – for their own sakes. As Thomas Jefferson wrote:

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”

And as Graham Power writes:

“If the Jersey regime could do this to me and get away with it then think what they could do to others. Think what they could do to the victims of abuse. Think what they could do to you. Think about it.”

Reflect on the question, “how on Earth did Jersey get itself into this astounding and scandalous crisis”; we are staring at the corrupt, hi-jacking and politicisation of objective policing, of the obstruction of the very enforcement of the law.

Sometimes societies sleep-walk – and when they eventually wake up, they find themselves in a bad place.

Sometimes very bad.

A Quote from Graham Power’s Statement as published in full by Rico Sorda, 19th February 2012.

“In spite of all of the conflicting and contradictory accounts offered by the Jersey Government we can be sure of some things which have emerged from this issue. The facts of this story support a view that senior figures in the Jersey Government are willing to lie, to make false statements, to destroy evidence, to withhold the truth, to invent accounts and to cover-up for each other. And this is not a story about me. I am not a victim of child abuse. I do not have to seek justice from the very authorities whose conduct and ethics have been exposed by their actions in this case. It is no wonder that the survivors of decades of abuse in Jersey Government institutions have little faith in the Island’s political and legal system. If the regime will lie about one thing then they will lie about another thing. If they will destroy evidence in one case then they will destroy evidence in another. If they are willing to collude and cover up the truth in relation to one matter then they will do the same about other things. If the Jersey regime could do this to me and get away with it then think what they could do to others. Think what they could do to the victims of abuse. Think what they could do to you. Think about it.”
