The secret imprisonment of Wanda Maddocks

What the secret imprisonment of Wanda Maddocks has shown is that an anonymous judgment does not tell you everything about a case. The Daily Mail wrote more about the case today. I do think the wider issue will also have more attention in the future.

According to a comment on the Wanda Maddocks story posted on the thisistaffordshire website, Ms Maddocks is the second person to be imprisoned secretly and without legal representation by Judge Martin Cardinal.

The OJC will not deal with a complaint about case management or a case judgement, which is a clear denial of justice, is there any chance of you raising this with the Lord Chancellor and asking that the judge be charged with abuse of office and disrepute?

This needs to be raised on the floor of the House of Commons and the Lord Chancellor should be asked to confirm that the judge will be suspended, preferably without pay, while his conduct is investigated and if necessary a disciplinary hearing for abuse of authority and bringing the judiciary into disrepute will be held.

This is a judicial decision and is therefore dealt with through the appellate process. Parliament can, in fact, remove a judge. However, I need people to come to me with case details to deal with as appropriate. I cannot simply refer to a comment on a newspaper article without any idea who is behind it.

it's not dat serious, in the scheme of things....murders, torture, gang rapes....althoug the real motive behind this one appears to be financial/ job cration/ employment, liberating assests far more serious crimes being committed by these nameless psychopaths....non physical entites don't go around attack people, that's absurd!

I can only surmise that Mrs Maddocks thought the same as myself that social services were there to help support and protect the elderly.
After probably relentless ignorance towards her farther and her self and god forbid she raised a complaint "Bad Idea"

Her life irrespective of any blame or not will have become a living hell of lies

I have first hand experience of the defamation Staffordshire councils are capable of. It is time for transparency and no secret courts full stop.

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. …
