An “Appalling Vista” in Cornwall
In 1979 Lord Denning upheld an appeal by West Midlands Police against civil action by the Birmingham Six over injuries they received in police custody.
Lord Denning’s view was that if the six men win, it will mean that the police are guilty of perjury, that they are guilty of violence and threats, that the confessions were invented and improperly admitted in evidence and the convictions were erroneous… This is such an appalling vista that every sensible person in the land would say that it cannot be right that these actions should go any further.
11 years later the men’s convictions were overturned after it was shown that the police had indeed done all the things Lord Denning described, and Lord Denning admitted the West Midlands Police forced had “let us all down”.
My own appalling vista began when I was arrested by Devon and Cornwall Police in 2012 on trumped up charges under the Harassment Laws to protect criminality involving Cornwall Council, Sanctuary Housing, TPAS, Oonah Lacey and others. This concluded with 2 Sergeants and 2 PCs from Devon and Cornwall Police being reprimanded by the IPCC. An investigation lasting some 15 months and which concluded with evidence remaining un-investigated, questions remaining unanswered and issues remaining unresolved to better diffuse and protect all those involved except the victim. That I was denied my day in court and in violation of article 11 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The IPCC failed to determine if the 4 Officers were ordered to do what they did or if they were bribed. Senior Officers were excluded from any investigations.
In 2015 I was again arrested by Devon and Cornwall Police on trumped up charges under the Harassment Laws to protect criminality involving Cornwall Council, the Cornwall NHS Foundation Trust, Sanctuary Housing and others. My rights were abused in detention, I was tricked into giving a false confession and the recorded interview was edited. Although I twice attended court I was denied a trial due to my defence team, Coodes Solicitors, doing everything humanly possible to protect Cornwall Council, the Cornwall NHS Foundation Trust, Sanctuary Housing and others, and a corrupt Devon and Cornwall Police force which Coodes had colluded with from the very beginning. That I was again denied my day in court in violation of article 11 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Complaints have now been lodged against 4 Coodes Solicitors, and also against Devon and Cornwall Police via the IPCC. I have requested Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer of Devon and Cornwall Police to use another police force to investigate my complaint due to an obvious Conflict of Interest.
Having now lit the blue touch paper and stood back let the fireworks and the fiddling begin.
