Police Scotland tries to wriggle out of hate crime bust

I reported Police Scotland’s hate crime a week ago.

This post brings you up-to-date with the correspondence I’ve had with the police since reporting the hate crime.

The hate crime I reported was the display of this poster :-

An SRA complaint against ME?

sra-logoI am neither a solicitor nor a barrister.  I have never been, or claimed to be, either.

This morning, I received notice of a complaint made against me to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). Continue reading

Police Scotland’s hate crime

Following the Reverend David Robertson’s excellent example, along with at least one other person so far, I have reported to Police Scotland a hate crime committed by Police Scotland itself.  I used the online form that is here.   I encourage you all to do the same, even if you don’t live in Scotland.  (Read on to find out why you don’t have to live in Scotland to report the crime.)

The hate crime concerned is the printing and display of the poster depicted.  The victims of the hate crime are the people of faith against whom this intimidating, threatening, offensive, stereotyping, alarming and distressing hate-speech poster incites the reader to religious hatred.

I actually reported the poster twice, because the online form’s design compelled this: once in my capacity as a witness of the crime, and a second time in my capacity as a victim of the same crime.  (I am both.)

THIS IS WHAT I WROTE …  Continue reading

Judgment on the day of Alfie’s funeral

Yesterday, I received the transcript of the judgment of Mr Justice Garnham on the day of the funeral of Alfie Evans, 14th May 2018.  This concerns my unsuccessful application for an urgent injunction prohibiting the cremation of the remains of Alfie Evans, without a prior post-mortem examination.  (At the time, I did not know whether a burial or a cremation was planned.) Continue reading

Coroner acknowledges my Alfie Evans judicial review claim

The defendant senior coroner, Mr Andre Rebello, has acknowledged service of my claim for judicial review of his decision not to investigate the death of Alfie Evans (9th May 2016 – 28th April 2018).

He hasn’t really responded much to the grounds for judicial review that I have pled.  He has, instead, quoted extensively from our email correspondence on 8th and 9th of May this year, and annexed the transcript of the injunction hearing of 14th May 2018. Continue reading

Tom and Kate have no right to be involved, rules judge

I was delighted when the coroner suggested that parents Tom Evans and Kate James ought to be allowed to join in, as interested parties, with my legal challenge against his decision that Alfie’s death didn’t need investigatingThe Christian Legal Centre tried to prevent me from serving the court papers on Tom and Kate, so I went back to court last Wednesday to apply for the court’s help in getting to Tom and Kate the good news of my legal challenge, enabling me to recover from the Christian Legal Centre’s treachery in keeping from their clients the news of my involvement, from May onwards.

Behind closed doors today, Mr Justice Butcher ruled, without the 30 minute public hearing for which I had applied, that Tom and Kate are not entitled to know about my legal challenge, and don’t necessarily even have any interest in whether the coroner’s decision was right or wrong.  The judge did put the ball back in the Christian Legal Centre’s court though, by ordering me to ask them to send Tom and Kate copies of his order today.  Continue reading

The police are NOT “the law”

Star post

It is possible to take the police to court.

A police officer slagged me off in writing in 2014.  I sued the chief constable for libel in 2015.  It has taken a while, but I have finally won a retraction of the false accusations made against me, plus some money, plus my legal costs.  Suing the police involved a lot of waiting, but not a huge amount of work.

What happened in court the day of Alfie’s funeral?

This morning I received the transcript of the hearing that took place on 14th May.  The hearing occurred because neither the coroner nor the Christian Legal Centre had told me whether  Alfie’s parents were intending to cremate his body after the funeral that day, or to bury Alfie.

I am publishing both the transcript and also (for the first time) the application that I made that day, including supporting evidence. Continue reading

SCOTT’S LAW

Star post

The late Scott Douglas Routley had a nasty road traffic accident around the turn of the century, which damaged his brain.  By 2012, Scott had been comatose, persistently vegetative, “locked-in” – or however you want to put it – for 12 years.   He couldn’t move, or talk. Continue reading
