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 Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…

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. …
