To get a good understanding of the latest attempts by Jersey’s corrupt establishment to shut-down free-speech using embezzled public money, watch the exclusive interview I gave to Voice for Children, one of Jersey’s leading independent media:
Clik here for my original exclusive video interview on the Voice for Children site.
I recorded the interview with Jersey citizen media site, Voice for Children, on Wednesday 16th, and wasn’t aware that the “judge” hearing this “case” was Julian Clyde-Smith.
It’s quite marvellous really – funny, in the manner of the blackest of farces – that Julian Clyde-Smith – and his equally conflicted friends, such as Philip Bailhache, William Bailhache, and the man who chose and appointed him to hear this case – Michael Birt – think Clyde-Smith can be used as a judge in any matter concerning me without inflicting greater damage and discredit on themselves.
It’s especially foolhardy of them – in one of those ways which pushes London’s protection of them well beyond any semblance of legal credibility – given that Julian Clyde-Smith is actually subject of detailed and most serious complaints of judicial corruption, of which London are aware.
Still, ours is not to reason why. Instead, let’s take full advantage of this display of stupidity to amplify yet further – and provide further evidence – of the points I make in the video interview with VFC – by considering the hopeless – the frankly illegal – position of Julian Clyde-Smith.
There’s nothing complex about the situation; all reasonably well-informed people know perfectly well the basic legal requirements for the good administration of justice. For example – ‘not only must justice be done – it must be seen to be done’. Which means that a court and the judges who sit in it, cannot have any kind of pre-existing involvement in the cases which come before them; they can’t have any kind of association with the parties to the case; they can’t have conflicts of interest; they can’t have a direct – express – personal interest themselves in the outcome of a case.
That is the established law on judicial processes and the good administration of justice. It was settled, uncontroversial English law, long before there even was a European Convention on Human Rights.
It’s simply common sense, that courts and judicial processes have to be pure – and beyond any kind of contamination.
None of the Jersey court proceedings involving me meet that test. Indeed – they don’t even get close. But for the moment, let’s just focus upon the involvement of Julian Clyde-Smith – and the legal business “The Ogier Group” – which now – in addition to having dramatic, de facto control over the Crown prosecution and Crown judicial functions in Jersey – were recently given similar control by the Home Affairs Minister – over the Crown policing function in Jersey.
The Ogier Group – through people such as Michael Birt, Tim Le Cocq, Jonathan White and Julian Clyde-Smith – control the “law” in Jersey. I’ve written about this in more detail previously; I’ve put the link below this posting.
But let’s just quickly consider the fatal position of Julian Clyde-Smith – when his involvement at all – in any matter concerning me – is tested against that settled law on the need for judicial purity and objectivity.
Late in 2006, early 2007 – with the assistance of survivors and whistleblowers, I became the first ever States member – the first ever public official of any kind in Jersey – to seriously investigate, discover, and speak-out against decades of concealed child-abuse and cover-ups. For example, the Blanche Pierre Group Home and the years of monstrous abuse conducted by Jane and Alan Maguire. But in addition to that case, there were many others – such as the illegal and grossly abusive long-term solitary confinement regimes used against children with mental health issues in Greenfields – and the regime of savage violence that had been used for years against children in Les Chennes.
In addition to those many evidenced crimes of child-abuse – I was also exposing the ‘system’ in Jersey – such as the policing, prosecution and judicial systems which had permitted and covered-up all of that abuse.
As is well-documented this led to the Jersey establishment uniting and doing absolutely all it could to obstruct, damage, abuse, intimidate, harass and oppress me. A campaign of unlawful suppression which continues to this day. This even involved a grossly illegal, anti-democratic conspiracy by senior civil servants with the support of Crown Officers, to engineer my removal as Health & Social Services Minister. This was witnessed by the Police Chief Graham Power, who opposed it, and wrote a file-note in July 2007, in which he says: -
“BO and the others were persistent and I was left with the clear impression that they were attempting to draw me, in my capacity as Chief of Police, into a civil service led attempt to remove a Minister from Office.”That plot was a criminal conspiracy – not only against me – but against the vulnerable children and victims I was seeking to help.
Even though I was removed from office as H & SS Minister in the illegal coup, I carried on strongly fighting for the interests of vulnerable children and against the cover-ups as a back-bench member of the Jersey parliament.
So – referring again to the established judicial law – which requires – without exception – non-contaminated, objective judges, it is a clear legal fact that – given that activity I was engaged in – seeking to uncover and expose and prevent child-protection failures – any judge who had in any way been involved in any such child-protection failures or who was friends and allies of those who had – cannot then be a lawfully objective judge in any matter concerning me.
That is simply the established law.
Julian Clyde-Smith is close – long-term – personal friends with various public officials with a known and evidenced involvement in efforts to prevent the child-protection failures being exposed.
For example – Anton Skinner, Philip Bailhache, Tim Le Cocq, William Bailhache – and Michael Birt.
So – here we have a judge – Julian Clyde-Smith – with very close professional and personal associations with an extensive range of people who have a dramatic personal interest in continuing to bury their own many past failures as public officials; these are people who have a serious interest in obstructing, damaging, discrediting and oppressing people like Graham Power and me – who were striving to expose those failures.
But notwithstanding that gross and multifaceted conflict of interest – Julian Clyde Smith has heard cases involving me – and quiet extraordinarily – continues to do so – as we learn today.
When he heard my first judicial review application on the 27th September 2010 – at 7.00 a.m on a Monday morning – I asked Clyde-Smith to declare all of his conflicts of interest (an entirely proper and reasonable thing to do.) Clyde-Smith simply flatly refused to do so.
He then proceeded to run the Attorney General’s case for him, because the Solicitor General who was representing the AG in court was so incompetent, he didn’t understand that executive actions can be challenged via judicial review.
That hearing - because of Julian Clyde-Smith’s refusal to declare his conflicts of interest and the overt unlawful bias he displayed towards those involved in child-abuse cover-ups – was simply a manifestly corrupt process.
But – things get worse than that.
A lot worse.
As most people recognise – because let’s face it, it’s obvious and you’d be a fool not to see it – a real reason for the illegal suspension of Police Chief Graham Power was to sabotage the child-abuse investigations. That the suspension of the Police Chief was an illegal conspiracy is now well-established on the evidence, as published by bloggers; it needn’t detain us now.
What is far less well known is that there were other corrupt motivations for the illegal suspension of the Police Chief.
One reason – in particular – was the most pressing – over all others.
It is this:
The Police were a matter of weeks, perhaps a couple of months away – from submitting to Attorney General William Bailhache rape charges against an immensely powerful Jersey establishment figure.
Had the file gone in – and the man been charged – he would have brought them all down with him.
The rape investigation had to be sabotaged. Hence the illegal suspension of Police Chief Graham Power.
The rapist was legally represented.
He was represented by The Ogier Group – and Julian Clyde-Smith.
After the illegal suspension of Graham Power, the Police Chief attempted to judicially review the plainly unlawful actions against him.
When his case came to court – it was heard and thrown-out by Julian Clyde-Smith.
Julian Clyde-Smith did not declare the conflict of interests – that he was involved in representing the rapist.
So – the Police Chief who had been illegally suspended – mainly so as to protect a rapist from being charged with the crimes – finds himself before a court – presided over by a part-time judge – who is involved in legally representing the same rapist the police Chief had been unlawfully suspended so as to protect.
This is simply naked judicial corruption.
Julian Clyde-Smith is a criminal.
The position get’s worse.
After the Police Chief’s illegal suspension – I was approached by a constituent – a victim of the rapist. They were profoundly demoralised – fearing – rightly as it turned out – that the Police Chief’s illegal suspension meant the case against their attacker would be sabotaged. I listened, and pledged to do what I could to help as a Senator, and I began asking questions, investigating the issues and trying to draw-out more information.
Within months of taking up the interests and protections of these rape victims, I too - like Graham Power – had been illegally crushed by Jersey’s corrupt, self-protecting establishment.
When I attempted to judicially review the illegal actions taken against me, I too – like Police Chief Graham Power – found myself appearing before Julian Clyde-Smith. And like Graham Power – one of the key – perhaps the key – motivations for the oppression conducted against me, was the protection of the rapist. For by that time – I was the last public figure the victims had fighting for them.
And like Graham Power – when I attempted to judicially review the obviously unlawful actions taken against me – I find myself appearing before the judge – Julian Clyde-Smith – who is involved in legally representing the rapist I was trying to get justice against on behalf of my constituents.
Julian Clyde-Smith refused to declare that conflict of interests. I only discovered it a long time afterwards.
This is simply stark judicial corruption.
Judicial corruption - of the most serious kind.
Julian Clyde-Smith knows, now – that I know.
He knows – because I put the matter to him in e-mail correspondence when I learnt of it – in 2012. Clyde-Smith couldn’t deny it.
Julian Clyde-Smith is a criminal.
To those in the island who have been – and continue to be victims of the powerful and the wealthy – to victims of child-abuse – and to the victims of the rapist – take courage and lift your spirits; we’re going to get there.
It was never going to be easy; the death-throes of a wholly corrupt feudal mafia grown decadent through centuries of being the “law” in Jersey, was always going to look like this.
Corrupt judges – concealing conflicts of interest – oppressing people who try to help the weak – oppressing victims – driving out of office political opponents - shutting down free-speech – imprisoning dissidents.
Panicking corrupt oligarchs – who have run out of ideas – and no-where left to turn – struggling down in the gutter, trying desperately to grasp “A Bigger Stick” in an attempt to beat-away the inevitable consequences of their maddened actions.
The Crown judicial function in Jersey – on fire.
The End was always going to look like this.
