Sally Clark - It's still happening

The most important point to note from the press coverage relating to the miscarriage of justice relating to Sally Clark (and Angela Cannings, Ian and Angela Gay and the prosecutions of Trupti Patel and Marianne Williams) is that this is still going on.

Firstly, parents are being prosecuted because doctors don't know what happened. Or indeed because doctors do know, but want to point the finger in a different direction.

Secondly, there are still people in jail who should not be.

Thirdly, it is far far worse in the Family Courts than the Criminal Courts.

I have spent some time studying the different aspects of the systems of family justice. That has involved dealing with individual cases in court and elsewhere. Gradually it is possible to see a wider picture of what is happening.

The system is an almost total disaster. The story today in the Sunday Mercury about the way in which Birmingham's Social Services failed a child because they ignored the child's grandparents - in contravention of a court order - is another example.

Childrens' Services across the country make very bad parents. It is, therefore, wrong to give them responsibility for children unless the situation of the children is otherwise very bad.

People should really ask questions why those children brought up in care have difficulty dealing with social workers and often have their own children taken "into care". That is because many of them end up hating Social Services (now Children's Services). That means that they react very badly when Children's Services get involved.

There are good social workers, but there are plenty who don't really care about the children they are responsible for. Ofsted are replacing CSCI and their priorities will be orientated towards increasing the baby broking aspect of Children's Services.

The whole area is dominated by experts' reports frequently based upon assertion rather than evidence. The experts make a lot of money and a lot of misery is created - particularly for the children.

With hindsight, this eminent Professor, Terry Hamblin, posted this message into his blog

24 hours after Sally Clark’s death. He deleted it, then reposted the same message 48 hours after her death. He then deleted it for good, but there was a Google cached copy, which has also been deleted. A permanent snapshot copy can be viewed here:

It is now on record that the deliberately erroneous, arrogant opinions of Professor Terry Hamblin may have marred potential referrals to him, which could be considered to be unsafe and not in the public interest in the event of his being called upon as an expert in his field.

This is the original Google captured page, which has been deleted.

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. …

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

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).

KING’S BENCH DIVISION

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…
