THE BRITISH POLICE
Most Police forces are funded by their local authorities. Because of this they build up cosy relationships with local council officers, often belonging to the same masonic lodge. Additionally, the Police do not regard planning crime as a high priority and indeed very often do not understand the law sufficiently to realise a crime has been committed. It appears our Government has directed the Police accordingly. In any event our government declines to take action or to form a special planning crime unit to investigate deception and fraud. Neither have the Government taken any steps to implement the recommendations of Lord Nolan and the Nolan Committee report on Standards in Public Life.
Unfortunately, many police forces are rotten with corrupt practices, leading to fraudulent convictions, fit ups, bribery and other corruption that is institutionalised.
We know of several cases where Sussex police have targeted individuals at the behest of Wealden's officers and friends of Wealden councillors. Sussex police have even involved or operated on behalf of Surrey police, whereas, Hampshire police and Kent police forces have investigated Sussex police when under the command of Paul Whitehouse and found the force to be riddled with corrupt practices.
In 1997 Sussex police faked an investigation where not a single informant was interviewed by them and not a single suspect. This was in connection with planning frauds and the complainants Petitioned Wealden, with all 12 complaints being found to be criminal in nature and therefore referred to the police by the Lord Newton and Nelson Kruschandl.
Instead of mounting a case for a class prosecution, Sussex police became part of the problem where the only explanation for that is that their officers are also on the take, so benefiting in some way from planning consents or bribes. To make matters worse this force provided blank police notepaper to the council for them to write what they wanted to read out to their members and the press.
When it became clear that Mr Kruschandl had cottoned to Wealden's practices and was by now winning planning cases and protecting other from enforcement harassment, it is alleged that Wealden enlisted the help of Sussex police to frame Mr Kruschandl for a series of rapes that never took place. They did this by coaching an emotionally unstable girl and her mother, where an engagement had been called off, to give evidence to a jury, where no actual corroborating evidence is needed in the case of a sex crime courtesy of David Blunkett's eugenics statute, the Sexual Offences Act 2003. The enactment of this statute is a step backwards in human right terms, towards concentration camps and state neutering, where anyone so accused enters a courtroom presumed guilty, instead of presumed innocent.
All that was needed in such circumstances was for the investigating officers not to find anything that disproved the allegations. Gordon Staker, James Hookway and Jo Pinyoun worked hard not to seize the girl's computer, video collection of The Bill and Casualty and finally, not to complete an internal investigation where Melanie Leibenberg must have realised from the first stage of the process that the girl had not been raped as she'd been coached to say, but that she was still intact and a virgin.
Knowing that such revelation would result in an acquittal or the case being thrown out of court, the doctor stopped her examination short and did not measure the distance from the hymen to the vaginal wall.
During examination on the stand, the girl's mother revealed the existence of a work diary that she'd hidden in her loft to prevent the police from finding it. Though, this may have been on the instructions of the investigating officers.
The CPS knew that the defendant was legally aided and so unable to mount any kind of a defence on the sums provided by the board. Julian Dale at least tried to get Judge Brown to rule out the medical evidence, but the judge told the barrister to get on with it, meaning to challenge the medical evidence.
instead of doing so he lied to the defendant, breaching his code of conduct, as did Tim Stirmey, the solicitor handling the case. No application was made to the court to question the girl, where the legal team had been instructed to question the girl as to several provable lies and to challenge the medical evidence. Why, because the defendant knew that he had not interfered with the girl and believed that despite a neighbour girlfriend of the claimant who had been banned from the house for inappropriate behaviour, that the girl was more than likely intact. This was of course a guess on his part that turned out to be correct.
The Crown failed to provide colour copies of the newly discovered work diary and Judge Cedric Joseph would not allow an adjournment for the defence to forensically examine the diary evidence.
Julian Dale failed to introduce compelling evidence that the girl's mother was a serial fraudster, where she claimed on the stand that the defendant had not contributed to the running of the home but he had proof of that where he was routinely paying her credit card bill each month and food and other goods were purchased by this means. She also claimed that he'd not lived with her, when any neighbour in Hailsham could have attested to that, if the defendant's solicitor had bothered to ask them. He did not.
Another key bit of evidence as to the reliability of the girl's mother was that she had over £16,000 in savings from the sale of a house that she'd no declared when claiming for working tax credits.
Not one of 17 witnesses for the defendant were called by Julian Dale, some of which were young females that had been in his care for long periods where he was an uncle. This testimony would have revealed to the jury that the defendant was routinely reliable and acted as one would expect for a responsible guardian. Tim Stirmey told some of those asking to give evidence that their testimony would not help the defendant - another lie on the part of the defence lawyers.
Every regional Police Force has its own website which contains information and advice about police activity in the area it serves. You can select your local force, or the force for another region below: However, you will not find any information as to how to report planning crime. If you do report a planning crime, the force you have contacted will write back explaining it is a civil matter, despite the criminal sanctions in the Town & Country Planning Act as amended by the Planning & Compensation Act. If you really push for a crime to be logged, they will tell you they do not have the resources and to take out a civil action. Clearly, this is a crime in itself as in R v Dytham and R v Bowden - failing to perform one's duty to uphold the law. Please also see the Police Act and Code of Conduct elsewhere on this site. Just click the links.
It appears the UK Police Service works alongside a number of Government organisations, masquerading as independents, to stifle planning crime and suppress public outcry. The best thing you can do if you recognise any of the symptoms, is to lobby your Member of Parliament for a change in the law. The Ombudsman, District Auditor and Office for the Supervision of Solicitors are all their to preserve the status quo, regardless of the ongoing injustice:-
