WHO ARE THEY?
A Reader’s quiz.
Just a very brief post.
I thought by way of a little entertainment in these grim times, we’d hold a reader’s quiz.
Read through the dynamite transcript of Lenny Harper’s exclusive interview with the BBC – as re-produced in my previous post.
Observe this section in particular, in which Lenny is speaking of the general and widespread corruption which dominates in Jersey. This particular incident didn’t involve child protection – but sadly, it’s the very self-same syndrome behind this episode.
“Lenny Harper: What I found particularly distasteful was the involvement of some of the local politicians, who sided with corrupt Police officers and their associates, even to the extent of interfering in the charging process.
I think it’s fairly well documented that we were due to charge this businessman, and we were due to charge him with an offence which he admitted under oath in court, in which he admitted inciting a Police Officer to carry out illegal checks on computer systems. We eventually got the authority from the legal advisors to charge him with the offence of inciting this Police Officer to commit the illegal computer transactions. We were due to charge him at six o’clock one evening. At five thirty, two local politicians who were friends of his went to see the Attorney General. As a result of that we received a phone call from the Attorney General instructing us not to charge.
BBC: Do you know that it was a result of that, or is that just your belief?
Lenny Harper: Yes I’ve had conversations with the Attorney General about it. The consequence was that we received instruction not to charge.These two politicians had been involved throughout this series of enquiries and in fact were two of the politicians who criticised us for wasting public money.
BBC: Are they still in government? Are they still active politicians?
Lenny Harper: They’re still active politicians, yes.
So – here is your question:
Who were the two politicians referred to by Lenny?
The two politicians who so easily gained full co-operation and compliance from Jersey’s Attorney General, William Bailhache – when it came to the leveraged abandonment of charges – which the man had already admitted under oath in court?
Hell – it’s remarkable.
I can’t get Bill Bailhache to answer rudimentary questions on behalf of my constituents – but establishment politicians can get him – at the drop of a hat – to pull the charges against an individual – who’d already admitted the offences – under oath – in court.
But – anyway – let’s entertain ourselves with a guess-the-identity-quiz.
And, yes – before you ask – I’ve got the goods. ;.)
I’m just curious to see how widespread this knowledge is amongst our community.
Just who are these two active politicians – who can so readily persuade Jersey’s Attorney General to pervert the course of justice?
So come on – take a shot at identifying the two politicians in question.
