Slovak Investigation and the International Criminal Court

I spoke last Thursday about the investigation in the Slovak Republic into corruption in the courts in England. There is a press report on Joj TV (in Slovak, but you can use Google translate on the text), here and here
The following is the statement by the General Prosecutor in the Slovak Republic

Jana Tokolyova, spokesman of the only biggest institution of investigation in the country, called General Prokuratura.

On Monday Silvia M. has made criminal complaint. On Wednesday, the director of General Prokuratura met the deputy director of National criminal agency of Police Prezidium and they have named a special agent that will deal with this case. We will not publish further information
because of possible investigation obstruction.

Vážený pán Krpač,
V pondelok 12. 8. 2013 podala Silvia M. na Generálnej prokuratúre Slovenskej republiky trestné oznámenie. Vzhľadom na obsah trestného oznámenia, sa dnes stretlo na pracovnom rokovaní vedenie Generálnej prokuratúry so zástupcom riaditeľa Národnej kriminálnej agentúry Prezídia Policajného zboru. V trestnom konaní bude činný policajt tejto zložky Prezídia policajného zboru.
Právnu kvalifikáciu skutočností uvedených v trestnom oznámení, ako trestný čin, nebudeme uvádzať z dôvodu, že trestné konanie je v tomto štádiu neverejné a tiež, aby nedošlo k zmareniu tohto konania.
Chcela by som Vás ešte upozorniť na Vami nesprávne použitý termín. (Žaloba sa podáva na príslušný súd, obžalobu podáva prokurátor na súd) - na prokuratúru bolo podané trestné oznámenie.
Prajem Vám príjemný deň
Ing. Jana Tökölyová
hovorkyňa generálnej prokuratúry
tlačové a informačné oddelenie
Generálna prokuratúra Slovenskej republiky

I am now in discussions with various people about making a more general application to the International Criminal Court.

Millionaires and politics

The Labour Party spent most of the last election criticising me for being a successful businessman (aka millionaire). That is business in the private sector employing over 250 people. It is worth looking at the situation for the Labour Candidate now:

For the year 2016-7 Annual Income from Parliament74,962Specifically for her book51,250Other media income etc5,322.82Total declared income131,534.82

Traditionally anyone with an annual income of over £100,000 has been considered to be a millionaire. I did not use my position in parliament to increase my income.

I have been asked for sources for this. This BBC piece looks at how one should define rich. It was written in 2011 so the figures will be slightly out of date. There are perhaps 2 relevant pieces:
"In 1880 a rich person would have had £100,000 in assets or an income of £10,000 a year, he says. About a hundred people a year died leaving £100,000 and by 1910 this was 250 - "a microscopic fraction of the number of death…

Homelessness vs Selling Books

Candidates in elections tend to find themselves very busy with lots of things to do.  It is, therefore, necessary to prioritise things to ensure that the important things are dealt with.

To me the issue of homelessness and rough sleeping is an important issue.  Therefore, when Birmingham's Faith Leaders group contacted me to ask me what I would propose and whether I would work with them to make things better I was pleased to respond with my views and indicate that I would work with them after the election.

The Faith Leaders Group (Bishops and other religious leaders in Birmingham) have now sent out their report.

Sadly, according to their report,  I was the only candidate for Yardley to respond.  The group in their report said:

"Particularly disappointing was the lack of response from some of those candidates seeking re-election as MP for their respective constituencies."
It is worth looking at the priorities of my opponent.
Interestingly today she has decided to be at th…

Gender Issues comparison of candidates

John Hemming believes that an MP should represent everyone in their constituency.  This should be regardless of their race, religion, gender, abledness, sexual orientation or anything else.  It should be everyone.

When he was an MP he worked on issues relating to men, those relating to women and those relating to non-binary people. Everyone.

For example here is John Hemming on a demonstration outside the courts with the campaign group Women Against Rape (it related to the case of a mother who had her child removed from her because the mother was raped).

Jess Phillips, who campaigns on women's issues, notwithstanding the questions asked about her appointments in her parliamentary office, had the following response when asked for a debate on issues specifically relating to men:
