Justice for Families - Launch of Angela Cannings Foundation

Justice for Families - Launch of Angela Cannings Foundation
The above is a photograph of the participants in the Justice for Families Parliamentary Lobby this morning.

This is the first parliamentary lobby from Justice for Families. Chaired by John Hemming MP and with Bill Bache as Legal Advisor Justice for Families is campaigning for “justice for families”.

The word “family” indicates that this means campaigning for justice children, parents and grandparents. We will be looking at issues from the children’s perspective, the parents’ perspective and the wider families’ perspective.

This lobby looks specifically at the issue of miscarriages of justice in the criminal courts, but also at secrecy in the Family Courts. The Angela Cannings Foundation will also be launched at this event. The Angela Cannings Foundation has been set up to support and assist parents/carers who have been falsely accused of killing or harming their children. It will be run by people who have suffered at the hands of the system.

The following further seven Justice for Families lobbies are being worked on at the moment:

Children in Care are not necessarily Safe – why are some allowed to be prostitutes, but not cook toast for each other. The views of children who have been in care.

Why is there so little action to deal with perjury in the Family Courts? - we are expecting a book launch at this event. The views of those people who have been in the courts.

Dr David Southall – his work and how his treatment of children and parents has been covered up. The views of his victims: children and parents.

Forced Adoption and Adoption Targets – stories from children who were wrongly adopted and their birth and adoptive families damaged by the system.

Is Social Work now Baby Broking – the views of social workers.

Grandparents and the System – the views of grandparents

Why do the doctors get it wrong in court so often and are they paid more to get it wrong than if they got it right – the views of doctors

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …

I have only just found this one which I think is accurately reported below (but if it is not please give me an accurate report).

R v SUSSEX JUSTICES ex p McCARTHY [1924] 1 KB 256

November 9 1923

Editor’s comments in bold.

Here, the magistrates’ clerk retired with the bench when they were considering a charge of dangerous driving. The clerk belonged to a firm of solicitors acting in civil proceedings for the other party to the accident. It was entirely irrelevant that there had been no evidence of actual influence brought to bear on the magistrates, and the conviction was duly quashed.

LORD HEWART CJ:
It is clear that the deputy clerk was a member of the firm of solicitors engaged in the conduct of proceedings for damages against the applicant in respect of the same collision as that which gave rise to the charge that the justices were considering. It is said, and, no doubt, truly, that when that gentleman retired in the usual way with the justices, taking with him the…

Statement re Police investigation into Harassment and Perverting the Course of Justice.

It was recently reported that the police were not investigating the allegations of Perverting the Course of Justice that I had made. This came as a surprise to me as I had been told for some time that my allegations were to be considered once the VRR had been rejected. I have now had a very constructive meeting with Staffordshire police on Friday 29th June 2018 and the misunderstandings have been resolved. At that meeting the evidence relating to the perversion of the course of justice and the harassment campaign against my family were discussed. The police have decided to investigate both the perversion of the course of justice and also the harassment campaign. I would like to thank them for changing their decision and I accept their apology for the way in which they did that. I am also in possession of written confirmation a police force would be investigating allegations that a vulnerable witness has been harassed for trying to expose the campaign against me. I hope that the aut…
