United Nations to Look at UK Childrens Social Services

In an Email today from the secretary of the United Nations Human Rights Committee it has been confirmed that Committee Members will be looking at John Hemming MP's submission about UK Childrens Social Services.

John Hemming MP said, "It takes some time to work through different systems of administration. I am pleased that we now seem to making some progress at getting the United Nations to look at the way in which England and Wales recycle children. It is plainly wrong for England and Wales to continue doing things in this way. More of the abuses of process that occur in the Family Justice System are being highlighted now. However, what needs to happen is the recognition that the system is wrong. I therefore welcome the communication from Patrice Gillibert today that our submission will go through to the next stage."

"I am still waiting for the High Court to decide whether or not I can start reporting malpractise to the authorities. It is wrong for judges to be immune from sanctions for malpractise in private hearings - which is currently the situation."

John Hemming MP, who chairs Justice for Families, submitted a report to the United Nations about how families were being maltreated by the UK's Childrens Social Services earlier this year. Justice for Families is a campaigning organisation pushing for changes in Public Family Law in the UK.

Potential Changes



John Hemming's note:

I am a member of the UK Parliament. I am particularly concerned at the way in which the UK treats new mothers where their newborn babies are removed from them even though there is no real risk to the health of the babies. The court process is secret and the babies are given to other more acceptable families.



Response from Secretary Gillibert:

Thank you for your message whcih will be brought to the attention of Committee members. Sincerely, Patrice Gillibert Secretary, Human Rights Committee

Yes, John, the UN really does need to look at children's social services in this country. Under this Government the situation is getting very bad indeed -- tragic -- and they don't seem to care about how many families they rip apart. What happened to Compassionate Socialism?

Well done John, I hope you can include the fact that LA's are prepared to drug children that are going to have a traumatic time being removed forcibly by the police from loving parents, Thank God Bolton police took a stand for the rights of the child recently and refused to force an Autistic child away from its mother. I hope more police take a stand and see they are being used by the SS to do their dirty work even when a child is not in crisis.

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. …

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…

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…
