Mark and Kerry in Ireland

The link is to today's Daily Mail story about Mark and Kelly in Ireland. I believe that the removal of their baby under an Irish EPO is in fact unlawful (that is advice they have had in Ireland).

It looks like the local Health Board are acting at the instigation of Fife rather than making their own decisions. That is not actually lawful either.

Please can you do something about this terrible case. This poor couple have lost their baby in very suspicious and somewhat terrifying circumstances. It is Kafka-esque, and more like Communist Europe in the 1980s than what I believe Britain should be like in 2010. Whatever can be done to help them must be done. The authorities must not be allowed to arbitrarily take children away from their families.

John, why is the "Daily Mail" the only UK paper reporting on this? I think this event is a crying shame, but when I try to get some others interested, they just sniff and say "Daily Mail."

As Ben was born in the Republic of Ireland, is he not an Irish Citizen? and that being so, surely he has the protection of the Irish Constitution, in that he"has the inalienable right to the society of his parents or parent"
My father fought the Irish Government for more than two years in the fifties having me released from an industrial school; it was the Constitution that clinched it. So yes, I would say the seizure of this infant is illegal and morally indefensible
Thank you for keeping an eye on this dreadful 'case' John. The home education community have been alerted of what is happening and this sort of abuse of power is exactly what you mentioned in the latest APPG on Elective Home Education as your concerns when education and safeguarding become confused. I am so gratefu that there are MP's out there who realsie what damage Social Services can do when thye overstep the mark.- please keep us informed of any developments you know about regarding kerry and Mark. many thanks.

you know the NSPCC covered up child abuse in Ireland for fifty years. Came out last year in Ireland in that fake inquiry into it. They claim to have 'lost' all the evidence.
Government tried to pin the blame on catholics but it was the Irish politicians and officials who used those places as rape camps. Thats why it was allowed to continue. everyone knew about it.
The so called investigation was just to get all the bad news out at once.
I dont think the ISPCC/NSPCC should be allowed to operate in the UK. Think it should be shut down

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…
