Beckett Group breach Court Order Feb 2008
The Beckett Newspaper Group breached a Court Order preventing publication on a blanket basis, concerning the so-called Herstmonceux Bunny Boiler case. This Order was made specifically to preserve the rights of the parties, to a fair hearing. It begs the question, if such an Order was made and breached, could the parties have received a fair hearing in Article 6 terms?
It is unclear where this leaves Beckett Newspapers and what action the Police might take to ensure publication of this nature is prevented by over eager Reporters and Editors, who perhaps have an eye on sensationalism to generate headlines to sell newspapers, rather than the damage that could be inflicted on the persons affected.
It could be that Sussex police were feeding information to the Beckett Group to help them gain a conviction against their victim, and from what we have heard about the level of corruption in this beleaguered force, that sounds quite plausible. Giles York was the Chief Constable at the time, taking over from Paul Whitehouse after the James Ashley murder by armed police - also based on false information. Paul Whitehouse was forced to resign after David Blunkett pushed him to leave following the dreadful revelations by Hampshire and Kent police following the investigation of the shooting.
If the Sussex police were using the media in this way and if that proves to be the case, then we have a potential conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
Rather importantly, the prosecutions chief witness, Dr Melanie Liebenberg, misled the jury as to so-called medical evidence, that it turns out was junk science. This witness for the Crown, must have known that what she was saying was false, unless she was totally incompetent. The partial notch she alluded to rape is in fact a commonly occurring feature in the hymen of all females of all ages. The jury were told by this witness that she could not think how such a mark could be present other than through sexual activity. That was a lie. She must have known from information in reports from a colleague: Dr Elizabeth Jane Carter in another case involving Sussex police, that these marks are naturally occurring. The marks that are not naturally occurring are full width lacerations of which there were none. This was only a common notch or mark that most females present with.
Having established the absence of any laceration scars and being unable to open the hymen with labial traction the next step in the examination stage is to use a colposcope to measure the hymen to vaginal wall distance. This stage uses precise measurements to establish if there has been penetration. Melanie Liebenberg must have known that this stage would reveal to a clinical standard that the claimant was intact and had not been the subject of multiple penetrations as claimed. It appears that she deliberately left out this stage, or failed to record the results and make them available to the defence, knowing it would likely lead to a conviction. She was helping the police, much the same as in the case of Sarah Ward, the woman convicted of being an IRA bomber on boot polish, where the forensic scientists failed to mention that polish gives the same result as explosives.
FRAUD - Tears and the like in the hymen are full width if caused by trauma, leaving scar tissue, rather than partial (a smooth small indentation) as in naturally occurring features. This was not explained to the jury, who were left believing that there was no explanation for the 'notch' other than penetrative sex. Tailoring the evidence by not completing a procedure leads to fraudulently obtained convictions.
Then if we go deeper (if you'll pardon the pun) we find that the vaginal labia could not be opened even with labial traction. Now we are not experts, but that sounds to us as though the girl was intact. I.e. a virgin. This is hardly what you'd expect to find by way of evidence where the aged Judge, Cedric Joseph, told the Jury that this was merely a sample charge or more like 30-40 sexual episodes. If there had been even one or two sexual episodes the hymen would be open. Doctor Liebenberg must have known this, but did not want to say so, or conduct any more tests that would deprive her police chums that chance of sending this poor chap to prison for something that he did not do.
The fact remains that howsoever this news group came to publish mid-trial, we now know that the mother of the complainant was the daughter of a prominent mason, a former head at Tyrian Lodge in South Street, Eastbourne, the same lodge that has many police members (it is 100 yards away from the old police station in Grove Road. Sounds suspicious? You bet.
Did you know that there is no right of appeal in the United Kingdom. That's right, we violate the fundamental principles of law in the quest to save money, forsaking those poor innocent souls who have been wrongly convicted. They call it Noble Cause Corruption. The Justice System (that it is) knows they are convicting innocent men and women, but they don't care about that 2.5%, or higher numbers, because in allowing the police to investigate only what they want to, instead of what they should, the conviction rate rises.
The Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) is the only route back to the appeal court in Merry Olde England, where a single Judge filters out application to the appeal court and ticks a box on the Appeal Form to take away time served. It's a bit of a gamble for those incarcerated. In this case Sir Christopher Holland had not made it clear if he'd ticked the box. Possibly, deliberately, but the Judge/Court failed to respond in time to allow the appellant to fill in the forms that were all ready to go within the 14 days allowed. Worse, the appeal barrister Michael Harrison failed to challenge the Appeal Court who were refusing to provide certain information (transcripts) or the single judge who had fudged the box ticking. In addition, Mr Harrison had not investigated the medical issues and so did not know about the virginity issue, nor had he looked at the work diary of the psychiatric nurse to realise that that the dates were all wrong and that Cedric Joseph had wrongly summed up to the Jury as to whose diary was in question. The Judge said it was the defendant's when nothing could have been further from the truth - it belonged to the mother of the claimant, and this woman had hidden it in her loft to prevent the police seeing it.
The diary only came to light when the mother of the claimant was being questioned on the stand. At this point the Court had no choice but to order discovery. Sussex police obliterated the colour code, only providing poor quality monochrome copies, knowing that this meant the defense could not challenge other assertions as to menstruation cycles.
You could not make this stuff up. Imagine then the mental torture of the wrongly convicted as he waited in prison in the hope that right would out at some point in time. But it was never to come. Michael Harrison had not provided the transcript of Judge Joseph's summing up to the appellant, so he did not know how this Judge had misled the Jury until two years into his sentence. The first glimmer of hope was when he discovered caselaw that was on point while in prison in Norfolk, thanks to a library service where one could order books, etc.
The prison service had denied the appellant a justice laptop, bouncing him from High Down to Lewes Prison, then to Maidstone Prison, then finally to Norfolk where they continued to deprive their prisoners justice facilities, monitoring privileged documents illegally.
In maintaining his innocence, he was locked up in his cell for 23.5 hours a day, allowing him exercise and locking in the block for a time for refusing to work, where appellants are to be treated as innocent and he elected education, that was also finally denied to him.
Prison in England is no fun if you are innocent and assert your rights to be treated as such. It is much easier to go with the flow and attend so-called corrective courses, save that these course bring a person into close contact with real offenders, as they reveal details of their crimes. Indeed, such courses have been shown the increase re-offending rates, being physchobabble based.
Finally on release it looked like there may be an appeal in the offing, with another barrister, Stephen Field taking up the baton, though not challenging either the medical evidence or incorrect diary summing up.
Unfortunately, the CCRC openly discriminate between cases, so that where there were two near identical cases that had been referred to the appeal Court by themselves, in this case they were not consistent within their own parameters. It is of course unlawful to discriminate in the United Kingdom, being an Article 14 violation. The only explanation that we can think of for this about-face is that the CCRC may have masonic connections. Indeed, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is the Grand Patron of the The Royal Masonic Benevolent Fund. What hope then for anyone trying to prove innocence, where the state openly violates Articles 13 and 17 of the European Convention of Human Rights.
MOTIVE: PETITION & ROBIN HOOD ADVOCATE
Why then do you suppose the Sussex police would have it in for this defendant? If we were to tell you that this victim of injustice had fallen foul of the Gestapo like Wealden District Council (WDC) in 1986 when they enforced against residential use of a historic generating building now a Museum, lying to Inspector Raymond Portal Dannreuther (Secretary of State), then in 1997 the appellant joined with others to demand an investigation in a Petition, but that the police failed to investigate the complaints of 12 unrelated members of the public, instead providing blank police paper to this council's officers to write their own letter of exoneration. Ian Kay's father was a member of Tyrian Lodge, in Eastbourne. Ian Kay was also the Assistant District Planning officer at WDC, having involvement in the generating buildings case from a Tree Preservation matter in 1984. The TPO was another ruse by Wealden to disadvantage the incumbent.
Nothing would have come of that, but for the fact that their target kept raising the non-investigation by Sussex police as a crime - and that would appear to be the case. It is a crime not to investigate a report of a crime, making those in the Sussex police involved in such cover up, criminals.
Then in 1999 Sussex police chums, WDC, suffered a major blow to their administration when proof positive surfaced as to this council's lies to Inspector Raymond Michael in 1997. Where the corrupt council had been caught red-handed, spending taxpayer's money to nurse a lie, they were somewhat embarrassed by the revelations of an archaeological survey, but rallied in delaying planning applications to put the matter right.
Also, their victim was helping other victims of what appears to be a corrupt planning administration, winning a number of appeals against this council. So they tried to bankrupt their target in 2003, and that is where the mother of the claimant as to sexual allegations comes into the frame. The defendant had become engaged to the daughter of a councillor who cannot be named. All the while he was engaged to be married to the councillor's daughter WDC were happy to do a deal, but as soon as the engagement was called off, things turned nasty again.
No longer represented by the councillor, WDC appears to have worked with Sussex police to concoct a case based on the vulnerability of the councillor's daughter and granddaughter, who were fond of the defendant but seeking revenge for calling off the engagement, so it appears were willing to be coached as to what to say and then lie on oath. It appears that where there was no case to answer from what were unsupportable allegations, they could make it convincing if they could find a witness who was willing to overlook the virginity and say something other that what any other professional would be bound to say under the Hippocratic Code of conduct that all doctors owe to any member of the public, not just a patient of theirs.
Their luck was in. Not only would Doctor Liebenberg provide what amounts to false testimony, but a teacher had conveniently lost her notes and a school friend had wrongly put forward her interpretation of what the claimant was saying to cover up the socially awkward truth that her mother had been dumped.
To make matters worse, the claimant suffered from a disorder that made her seek attention and was prone to suggestion, such that with repeated coaching, as those around her made suggestions to correct defects in her developing story, she latched onto the suggestions, over time most likely believing the concoction herself. Coaching is of course illegal, but that is what social services did. When social services tried approaching other girls that the claimant said were also victims of abuse, such story was roundly refuted by the other girls. Memories can be implanted. They are known as Screen Memories [Loftus].
Once implanted, the false suggestions become mixed in with real memories. These are recollections of early childhood that may be falsely recalled or magnified in importance to mask another memory of deep emotional significance, such as her mum's fiancée leaving the family and calling off the engagement. The poor girl must have been in a dreadful emotional state, and that Sussex police, apparently at the behest of Wealden District Council, did their best to secure. Imagine also that if the girl started believing suggestions that were implanted, that her mother and grandparents would also believe the false allegations. Several years on it would be almost impossible to separate fiction from fact. It took two years before the trial. Also of significance, is that the investigating officers did not believe the claimant. They gave her a further two weeks to invent something more plausible, where the object of any investigation is to secure the crime scene - something they never did. The police never secured the claimant's computer or video collection, both of which would have been telling. Whether negligent or deliberate the results were devastating to the right of the defendant to a fair trial.
Desperate to reinforce what was a case that could easily have been undone, had barrister Julian Dale followed the instructions of his client to challenge the medical evidence, Sussex police enlisted the help of local radio stations and newspapers to publicise the allegation and investigation, hoping that other females might jump on the bandwagon, but nobody could jump on that bandwagon as this man was innocent. Indeed, the opposite was true, those approached were willing to testify as to the good conduct of the accused - and for that reason were not interviewed. No statements were taken from anyone who had a good word to say about the defendant. It appears that the defendant's solicitor, Timothy Stirmey may also have been in the conspiracy frame where he wrongly advised that character witnesses would not help the defendant. Would you believe that? This was said to two witnesses who wanted to give evidence, but Mr Stirmey refused to take their statements.
The CCRC said that the claimant was convincing. They did not investigate the delays in obtaining video evidence from the complainant, or the coaching of social services. The claimant's grandmother worked for social services.
The exclusive rights to this story are available to any media or film group, together with copies of all the documents and the victim's prison diaries.
His barrister didn't challenge the so-called scientific evidence produced at trial. He should have. It was junk science. [Junk science is bogus forensic information that the police use to gain a conviction, where they have a weak case.] His barrister didn't show the jury the accused' diaries, he should have, because the girl's mother reminded the accused to send Valentines cards every year - which she, err, seems to have forgotten to mention to the court.
You'll have to wait for the subjects appeals in the ECHR to conclude before this book is published. Maybe then we'll see an official version in 2016/2017? European appeals take 4 years on average, from the date of lodge. But first you have to exhaust any domestic remedy. He has finally, as of February 2013.
Jenna Parry, 17th Suicide victim Bridgend
This is the subject of much media attention following the revelation of multiple suicides at Bridgend in Wales, in part attributed by some to the sensationalist newspaper reporting. The latest girl to take her own life by hanging being 16 year old Jenna Parry.
Readers will know the Government, after consideration of Lord Goldsmith, are considering moves to protect the identity of those accused of sexual offences, much the same as their accusers. This is because of the rise of innocent men being convicted by Juries, and only after serving considerable time in prison, is new evidence found to render guilty verdicts unsafe.
This could leave news hounds eager for material to print, out in the cold. However, the moral implications are clear. Allegations of a sexual nature ruin lives. See the links below to sample cases in 2007, where publication and subsequent scandal have ruined lives. The accusers inevitably get away scot-free. The newspaper hounds and the editors that helped ruin lives, on occasion even sway public opinion to deliver an incorrect verdict, also find themselves in the clear.
These are some of the examples of women falsely accusing men who were innocent. What is wrong with our legal system?
FACT: Girls making allegations are coached. YES, this is true, they are instructed how to give evidence and cosseted, sometimes isolated via a video link to make it easier for them to appear sweetness and light.
Barristers are loath to question hard, for fear of looking like bullies to a Jury.
They changed the law knowing a significant number of innocent men (and women) would be wrongly convicted. They don't care of course. It's not their lives they are messing with, they just want your votes. It is though a scandal. Every bit as bad as the eugenic extermination of the Jews. Why do we say that? Because anyone who knowingly violates the right of anyone to a fair trial is himself, or herself a criminal. That applies to anyone in the justice system who knows what is going on and turns a blind eye.
Under the new law reflected in the Sexual Offences Act 2003, any person is deemed guilty, unless there is compelling evidence to show otherwise. What this means in practice, is that to reach targets and for an easy life, evidence that could help an innocent man is not looked at. Investigating police officers will actually look the other way and not secure any evidence that casts doubt on the reliability of a complainant's story.
Here's what readers have had to say!
This is scandalous. I think that if the members of the jury knew just how slow the appeals process is they would be much less inclined to find people guilty when there is 'reasonable doubt'. In practice it is very difficult when people are found guilty on this kind of case where there is NO evidence; if there is no evidence in the first place then where is the 'fresh evidence' that may be required for an appeal to go ahead going to come from? These cases only seem to win on appeals when a false accuser admits to lying and that is very rare. Unfortunately as Mr Carrington-Jones has said there could be many innocent people in prison now as a result of convictions on non-evidence. Where will his compensation come from? Will the woman be charged? - Lily, Hull
Compensation is rightly due to this poor chap, but should the public pay the price of the crimes committed by these lying women? Shouldn't they be made to pay, even if it means their being financially ruined for life? And surely it cannot be the case that parole cannot be considered unless and until a prisoner "admits" the crime for which he/she has been found guilty? - Jim, London
What is wrong with British justice system where allegations of sexual assault are concerned? It all these cases it boils down to one girls word against the persons accused. Heaven forbid the accused should lead an unusual lifestyle. A Jury would not understand this!! This could be one failing of the Jury system, they are ordinary men and women. Perhaps justice is more important than to trust to Juries? The statistics speak for themselves.
The old Generating Station at Herstmonceux is to become a working museum. Archaeologists prove that (Inspector Dannreuther) the Secretary of State was lied to by so-called experts working for Wealden District Council.
A - Z of Sussex officer investigations
The above is just a few of a number of persons likely to be investigated in respect of certain cases brought against Wealden Action Group members, on the instigation of known Masons, councillors, or planning officers, many of which are themselves Masons.

Its all too easy to set someone up. Nurse a wild allegation, coach and craft a claim of abuse, use a disturbed child or family as an excuse to go after someone who has had the nerve to stand up against the powers that be. When this happens, it makes a mockery of Freedom of Speech, but it shuts down a would be protagonist and preserves the status quo. The law as it stands allows accusers to remain anonymous, while those accused are easy targets for the press as circulation boosters. Lord Goldsmith is considering a change in the law to protect those wrongly accused, especially those more likely to come up against such accusation, such as Teachers. But will he follow through?
And what of the status quo? Global Warming, Government Corruption, Unaccountability, War and Famine. Is this what you want to hear day in and day out? Would you rather see an international society where everyone is treated fairly and decently?
