Nelson Kruschandl, victim of an illegal  council campaign

 

Nelson Kruschandl - Real life victim of a criminal vendetta (a course of malicious conduct is where a local authority work to disadvantage a target, in this case with other agencies, such as Sussex Police). When Nelson realized that this council would never stop abusing the rights of residents in their geographical region, he set the wheels in motion to effect citizens arrests, also filming the council officers in the process of committing their crimes. The objective was to force Sussex Police to investigate the council corruption. He could never have guessed how deep the ties were between Wealden DC and the local police force.

 

It is alleged that instead of curbing their corrupt practices, this galvanised the local authority hoodlums to up their game and stitch him up with a rape charge - and they succeeded in the short term. The only problem with this is that the so-called claimant has since been shown to have been a virgin at the time of the allegation, an inconvenient revelation and unexplained inconsistency in a slow unraveling of the true facts. This is a matter that the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) have so far refused to investigate. Why? How far up the line does corruption extend in the United Kingdom.

 

 

Cllr Andy (Andrew) Long was a member of this council when they attempted to bankrupt Mr Kruschandl in 2003/04, when Nigel Coltman was the then Leader of the Council. 

 

Wealden District Council made their decision to seek to recover sums awarded by Dame Butler-Sloss, working with other high level members of the council, cabinet members, and other interested councillors including Nigel Coltman and Brian West. This decision also included taking advice from officers of the council, to include Vic Scarpa, Trevor Scott and Daniel Goodwin. Other officers involved included David Phillips and Doug Moss, both guilty of tampering with photographic evidence - otherwise known as attempting to pervert the course of justice.

 

It is alleged that because of the copious correspondence between the victim and this council and its members, that it was common knowledge and that because of this, all of those involved knew about the genuine history attaching to The Old Steam House in Herstmonceux - and would have been advised as to the tenets of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Local Land Charges Act and Rules, as relate to enforcement notices (orders) and other land charges.

 

Yet, not one of the councillors or officers involved lifted a finger to set the record straight, except to sack Christine Nuttall.  Indeed, it appears as though it went the other way - having been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, Wealden upped the game to try and wipe Mr Kruschandl out via character assassination, eliciting the assistance of the local media, who might also be viewed as an accessory after publication of a Section 39 case during a trial - such publication most obviously designed to sway any jury, with the trial judge, seemingly, in-on-it, where he failed to secure the courtroom from reporters and did not refer the matter to the CPS, for the press/reporter to be prosecuted. This is a violation of Article 6, a person's right to a fair trial.

Dear Councillor Long

 

PRESERVING OUR LOCAL HISTORY

 

Since 1982 I’ve been the occupier of the above property and keen to secure a beneficial use as the incentive to restore the building in line with good conservation practices.

Unfortunately, at the start of my occupation the Council decided to prevent all stand alone uses of the building, commercial and residential, which has proved to be a catastrophe in conservation terms and leaves this building “at risk” according to English Heritage publications. According to Mr Chester Hudson, he has seen a letter dated about 1983 from a neighbour to the Council confirming the historic origins of the building. This was not reported to the Committee finally cutting off the residential use when they authorised enforcement action in 1986. It appears from the R v Canterbury City Council ex parte Springimage case of 1991, that Wealden’s decision was flawed (based on incomplete information) and therefore void. If the Council were to continue with any enforcement action with this knowledge it would be illegal (malicious), an abuse of authority and misuse of public funds, etc.

Although Cllr Jarman was my local member and apparently founder of an archaeological group, he was never keen to speak with me because of a conflict of interest, where he was Chairman of the Planning Committee in 1995 and failed to speak when his Committee was told again by the Council’s conservationist (Chezel Bird) the building held no historic interest. (Let’s not speak ill of the dead)

Councillor West was decent enough to take an interest after I explained the unfolding predicament in about 1997/8. Since that time English Heritage and East Sussex County Council have confirmed the building is one of “considerable local historic importance.” Yet the Council appear unwilling to admit they have made any error or for their Monitoring Officer to make a report as to the obvious injustice caused where their decisions have poorly founded.

Without any recourse to law via Legal Aid, I have been forced to assert my civil rights in the hope I can mount a challenge to the Council’s ongoing obstruction in defence. Please therefore find enclosed copy of correspondence challenging the Leader and the Council’s legality of operation in general.

Rather than step into the deep-end, might I suggest that at this stage you might make contact with Cllr West for an update of the current situation and perhaps after you’ve had time to reflect on the information I will supply in due course, perhaps take an active part in seeking to find a reasonable use for a unique part of Sussex history. I apologise in advance for any time this matter may absorb.

Yours sincerely 



Nelson J Kruschandl

 

 

 

GUILTY & PROSECUTABLE

 

Officer's should know that 'Aiding and abetting' is a legal doctrine related to the guilt of someone who aids or abets in the commission of a crime. It exists in a number of different countries and generally allows a court to pronounce someone guilty for aiding and abetting in a crime even if they are not the principal offender. In civil terms regarding damages, this is termed vicarious liability.

In the United Kingdom, The 'Accessories and Abettors Act 1861' provides that an accessory to an indictable offence shall be treated in the same way as if he had actually committed the offence himself. Section 8 of the Act, as amended, reads:

"Whosoever shall aid, abet, counsel, or procure the commission of any indictable offence, whether the same be an offence at common law or by virtue of any Act passed or to be passed, shall be liable to be tried, indicted, and punished as a principal offender."

 

That does not look good for Andy, Giles York, Kelvin Williams or Bob Standley, except that the Sussex Police are in the pockets of Wealden District Council and also conspire with other agencies to cause harm to their intended victims. It is therefore unlikely that Sussex Police might be persuaded to investigate something where they have been involved for a very long time, despite Chief Constable Giles York being awarded a medal by Queen Elizabeth for services rendered.

 

This matter has been brought to the attention of Katy Bourne and the Prime Minister, David Cameron, because it is the kind of institutional corruption that we as a nation should not tolerate. We fought two world wars to ward off evil, and yet here we are, with organised white collar criminals in the corridors of power, albeit at a local level, but where will it end if we allow hate crime to go unchecked.

 

Hate crime is illegal. Hate crime is discrimination as per Article 14, but once authority is used unlawfully after it has been pointed out that it would be unlawful, then misfeasance translates to malfeasance - and so becomes a criminal matter: unlawful becomes illegal.

 

The only possible reason that we can imagine that would give a repeat offender the impetus to continue offending, is if they knew that the local police were in their back pocket, bought and paid for. Wealden District Council is a repeat offender. Sadly, many councils are and corruption in police forces all over the country is like an epidemic, recently (April 2016) reflected in the "Line of Duty" television series.

 

We are following this story with great interest, as it represents a test case with British Justice in the dock. The is no statutory time limit when it comes to malfeasance in public office.

 

 

 

THE GUARDIAN 21 APRIL 2016 - Presenter’s child abuse crimes should not be ‘whitewashed’ and should be explored in BBC drama, says Napac.

A charity providing support for survivors of child abuse has defended the BBC’s use of an image of Jimmy Savile in its police drama Line of Duty, saying Savile’s crimes should not be “whitewashed” from history and that it is important for drama to explore issues around child abuse.

The National Association for People Abused in Childhood (Napac) advised the BBC on the series, which has a long-running storyline about an investigation into a police cover-up of child abuse.

The penultimate episode of the BBC show, which airs on Thursday, has been criticised for using a photo showing Savile shaking hands with one of the characters.

Lawyer Liz Dux, who represents Savile’s victims, told the Daily Mail that her clients had “had enough of Savile’s image invading their lives” and accused the BBC of showing “a total lack of sensitivity”.

However, Peter Saunders, founder of the Napac, said the programme had handled the issue sensitively in the context of an important storyline.

“It’s a fleeting moment, it’s not a large, in your face, long-lasting image of Savile,” he said. “I’ve watched the first five episodes including this one and it is incredibly powerful. I don’t find it gratuitous - it’s a serious look at just how these bastards get away with it.

Line of Duty is a very serious comment on police cover-ups, society’s cover-ups and the power of celebrity. I think all forms of media used responsibly and appropriately can contribute to the very serious conversation about this issue of vile child abuse and how it exists.”

Saunders said the BBC had had concerns about including the image of Savile, given the corporation’s failure to stop him from abusing many of his victims while working on its programmes, as detailed in the Janet Smith report published in February.

However, he argued that the BBC’s failure to stop Savile from abusing his victims made it all the more important that the corporation acknowledged what had happened.

He said: “We find out things that people have done that are terrible and unfortunately we can’t whitewash them out of history. We should be able to acknowledge that Savile was an evil bastard who used his celebrity.”

In response to the criticisms, a spokesperson for the BBC said the use of the image was consistent with Line of Duty’s setting in a “recognisable and authentic world”.

She added: “One brief picture has been included to highlight the real-life context of the fictional story – that a fictional police officer suppressed claims of child sexual exploitation by a fictional local politician.

“When viewers have had the opportunity to view the episode for themselves, they will see the BBC has acted responsibly and sensitively towards the victims and survivors of Savile. Napac were consulted and aware of his inclusion and the episode will be preceded by a warning and followed by an action line.” By Jasper Jackson

 

 

HISTORIC OPEN LETTER TO ANDY LONG

 

Dear Councillor Long,

 

As a member of a council responsible for a great many historic towns and villages, and also caretaker of the public purse, could I ask you to be especially vigilant against maladministration within the Wealden District Council.

 

It is my experience that your council has allowed some departments to run riot with taxpayers money.  Some officers have used council resources for their own goals and as a playground for acts of impropriety, sometimes to cover up mistakes, and other times to pursue agendas for profit or personal ambitions and desires.

 

Your officers have persistently lied to government planning inspectors concerning The Old Steam House in Lime Park.

 

It took me more than 20 years to reach an understanding with your council about the Generating Station at Herstmonceux, then having signed a Court Order by way of Agreement, accepting that the buildings are historic and that your officers deceived the Secretary of State, they then breached that contract and once again denied everything.

 

You must know that this is a serious breach of my Human Rights - discrimination run wild. It looks to me as though this may be to allow a resident in Lime Park to purchase the historic buildings at an undervalue - which of course constitutes fraud under the Fraud Act 2006. I recall that David Phillips was in written communication with solicitors to Peter and June Townley, residents in Lime Park for many years, suggesting that they might benefit from use of these historic buildings - clear discrimination. What was wrong with my occupation? Why should any person have preference to another?

 

I hope you agree that we cannot afford to let situations like this go unchecked. It is the duty of every law abiding member to report suspected crime within their council. Should any member not report suspected crime, then they become party to that crime and vicariously liable.

 

You were elected to represent the community, not the officers.  You were elected to run the council to the best of your ability, and to stamp our corruption and discrimination - a clear violation of my rights and a Human Rights abuse using a position of authority - which makes it all the worse.  It is your duty to conserve the historic built and natural environments.  It is also your duty to seek to secure adequate services, education, policing and health care.

 

These are particularly difficult times, where public funding is under scrutiny against local issues, terrorism and global warming are serious international issues that should be targeted for spending, rather than waste money trying to cover up the inevitable publication of the wrongs of your council.

 

I am also aware that your council has failed to provide rolling stock for affordable housing, so perpetuating high house prices, denying those on low wages a chance to own their own home. This is surely an elitist society, where those with wealth rape those starting out in life - with help from officials who consistently fail to provide land for development as per government directions. And so the housing shortage continues. Empire building is nothing new in the Wealden district. Big houses for the wealthy and bungs for the planning officers who steer the planning applications.

 

I am relying on you to do the right thing for your district.  If you decide to do nothing, I expect to read about your resignation, rather than hear you are collecting monies for doing nothing and staying silent. That would also be fraudulent in my opinion - by way of obtaining monies by deception. The deception being that you have failed to represent the people, or only choose to represent some (favored) people, which is again discrimination and abandonment of duty - and of course accepting money for services that you have no intention of providing.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this message and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

 

 

Nelson Kruschandl

 

 

Cllr Long failed to respond to this letter in over three years, confirming his acceptance of the observations and criticism of his council.
