17e Assises nationales des avocats d’enfants

This is a link to the agenda of the 17th national conference of French family lawyers. Here is part of the agenda:
Vendredi 4 novembre 2016

9 h  – Accueil

9 h 30 à 12 h 45

Jean-Marc ANDRE, bâtonnier Versailles
Dominique ATTIAS, vice-bâtonnier Paris, présidente groupe de travail mineurs du CNB
Geneviève AVENARD, défenseure des enfants auprès du défenseur des droits (sous réserve)

Les maîtres du temps : Martine PERON et Josiane OLEOTTO-GUEY

30 ans d’application de la CIDE par les pays européens : Renate WINTER, vice-présidente du Comité des droits de l’enfant de l’ONU, ex-présidente du tribunal spécial pour la Sierra Leone et juge internationale au Kosovo

Pause

Angleterre : John HEMMING, ancien député, avec Florence BELLONE, correspondante RTBF au Royaume-Uni

Suède : Ruby HARROLD-CLAESSON, avocate, présidente du Comité nordique des droits humains
It is interesting how lawyers across Europe are unhappy with what is being done in England (and Wales). There is also a group of Portuguese lawyers who are building up steam to challenge the system. Renate Winter's speech was interesting particularly given her long experience as a judge and on the Childrens Rights committee of the UN. There is also a meeting scheduled at the end of the month in Estonia looking moreso at issues relating to Norway.

This organisation in France is equivalent to Resolution in England. However, Resolution do not appear to wish to invite people to speak who are critical of how the system works (well they have never asked me to speak unlike the French and a Polish event in September.)

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…

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…
