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 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…

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…
