THOSE WHO CONCEALED ABUSE FACE NO JUSTICE
AND CONTINUE TO BE EMPLOYED BY TAXPAYERS.
BY WAY OF CONTRAST –
I’M THREATENED WITH ARREST
UNDER THE DATA PROTECTION LAW.
A Threatening E-mail From the Cops
And my Considered Reply;
This is Getting Serious.
As readers of the previous posting will understand – a great deal of extremely serious events are taking place in the ever increasing Kafkaesque nightmare of the Jersey Child Abuse Disaster.
Freshly recruited UK cops are out to smear Lenny Harper. So much so, they’re refusing to interview key witnesses who may supply testimony which thwarts their objective.
Some of these cops have – with the full support and encouragement of the Jersey oligarchy – mounted an unlawful coup against the incumbent Chief Constable of the States of Jersey Police Force, Graham Power – a man of impeccable record and an outstanding professional.
In a manifestly illegal and overtly political manoeuvre, Mr. Power has been “suspended” by Jersey politicians - who don’t like the historic child abuse enquiry – not one little bit.
This political intervention against the police occurring as though the Crown Dependency of Jersey were some south American banana republic.
The head of Jersey’s civil service - who facilitated the coup against Graham Power – is himself a key suspect in the perversion of the course of justice involved in attempting to conceal the criminally abusive use of coercive and punitive solitary confinement against vulnerable children in custody.
The “new management” of the States of Jersey Police Force have engaged in an overtly political spin-doctoring campaign – mounted in a feeble attempt to rubbish the HDLG investigation.
And I am being threatened with investigation and prosecution for handling leaked information.
UK readers will be familiar with the immense and current controversy surrounding the police raid on the offices of Damian Green, MP – who, it is alleged, may have committed misconduct in a public office – by receiving leaked information.
The action against Mr. Green is madness – and the fact that the raid included his office in the Palace of Westminster has – rightly – caused outrage amongst other MPs, of all parties.
Whilst it may seem an arcane subject to many people – a policing interference with one of your elected representatives is actually an assault upon your rights to be effectively represented.
If such practices were ever to be regarded as acceptable – your chosen politicians – regardless of which party you support – will find themselves fearful, circumspect and intimidated in discharging their duties to the public good; for example – when attempting to hold those in power to account and subject them to scrutiny.
The raid on Mr. Green’s Westminster office has – plainly – transgressed the sanctuary of parliamentary privilege.
Jersey politicians aren’t supplied with such facilities as offices - so I work from home.
Therefore the impending raid on my office won’t be deterred by any consideration of parliamentary privilege.
But the essential point remains – if your elected representatives can be threatened, molested and intimidated by the police – especially when such police intimidation is carried out at the behest of other politicians – your freedom – indeed, the very foundations of democracy – are put in jeopardy.
This fact being widely and instantly recognised by 90% of democratically minded people – Mr. Green is in the fortunate position of having the support of the massed, cross-party ranks of MP’s – and of 95% of the media. And rightly so.
But in my case – down here in the crypto-feudal oligarchic environment of Jersey politics – I cannot look to such powerful support.
But I do have some support - a load from the good people of Jersey - and from MPs - like John Hemming who spoke of me and my situation today in parliament.
The Jersey Establishment Party have at least three, key aims:
1: Intimidate and silence me.
2: Intimidate and frighten my constituents who whistle-blow to me.
3: Force me into revealing my sources.
1 and 3 of those objectives are simply unattainable. I don’t “do” intimidated.
And – without exaggeration – I would sooner be jailed than betray my sources.
My constituents need not, therefore, succumb to that second Jersey establishment objective. On the contrary – the Jersey oligarchy – in behaving in such ways – are displaying just how frightened, weak and desperate they are.
So – I face the very real prospect of raids on my home, arrest, questioning under caution, prosecution - and jail.
I will write a good deal more about these issues in the coming days.
This is a very grave and serious situation – so I want you to read very carefully the top-secret threatening e-mail from the police to me – which I reproduce below.
And then pay particular attention to my considered reply, which follows it.
Like I said – these are very serious times.
THREATENING E-MAIL MESSAGE, FORWARDED TO ME IN THE NAME OF DCI TIM NUNN OF SUSSEX CONSTABULARY:
From: Newman, Mark [mailto:M.Newman@jersey.pnn.police.uk]
Sent: 03 December 2008 16:55
To: Stuart Syvret
Subject: Independent Investigation
I am leaving the enquiry and returning to my UK Force tomorrow. I have been asked to pass onto you the following message from DCI NUNN of Sussex Police.
I am no longer going to be part of The Operation Rectangle Enquiry but should you wish to contact me my email back in force is [E-MAIL AND MOBILE DETAILS EXCISED]
FROM DCI TIM NUNN:
Mr Syvret, Having spoken with Mark, I have asked him to pass on this rather unusual introduction in the hope that we can establish a dialogue. A few weeks ago, I was asked by the Deputy Chief Officer (DCO) David Warcup to conduct an investigation on behalf of the States Of Jersey Police (SOJP). This is standard practice when there is a need to illustrate 'independence' in an investigation where the police themselves might be considered to have a 'conflict of interests'.
The remit of my investigation was to establish how the report from the then DCO Lenny Harper dated the 29th June was disclosed and is now in the public domain. You are more than aware of that report as it appears on your Blog. Clearly, in publishing it, potentially you commit offences under the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005 and these are the subject of a separate investigation by the Data Protection Commissioners Office. I want to speak with you as a witness.
In simple terms, I want to ask you about the circumstances in which you came into possession of that report. My favoured way of doing this [EMPHASIS ADDED] would be to meet you in person. Please can you let me know, either by E mail or using the mobile number below, whether you are prepared to meet me to discuss this further. Thanks in anticipation, Tim.
