  • Where Was the Defence?

    Filed under: ,

    Only at 1430 were documents served on Maurice which the Judge had agreed to let Maurice have the day before. These had been listed as undisclosed on the schedule that arrived at M's 'hotel' 2 days before the start of the trial. These included 'e's initiated by CPS to Brian Woodford who is on the run from the CIA and who sold the DH-2 aeroplane in 1997 to MJK.

    These omitted the CPS parts but due to MJK's persistence, HHJ Thomas ordered the CPS to release the RAF Lynham emails too, which confirmed what their forensic gun expert said in questioning from MJK that: under the '68 Act the responsibility rests with the Military, if a firearm is passed to a civilian that a) the civilian is a licence holder andb) that the item is appropriately certified.

    These emails were dated 12th August and 26th August. It was obvious that the South Wales Police maliciously withheld this evidence. Before they were released the Judge had discussed them in chambers with the Prosecution Council.

    But where was the defence? In a cell under the court.

  • To Judge Thomas from my sister

    Filed under:

    Dear Judge Thomas,

    Regina v. Kirk

    I humbly ask that my brother's medical records since June 2009 are released. They have been refused by the Caswell Clinic despite the Freedom of Information Act. I am in the process of arranging a private appointment with an E.N.T. Consultant in Bristol and thus need the reports from Professor Roger Wood, Dr. Ruth Bagshaw and Dr. Silvester. These are the reports which were not available to Dr. Silva when he had been required to write a report on Maurice and which were referred to by Dr. Silva in his email to the CPS when he explained that he could not finish his report without a full medical background.

    It appears that the start of my brother's drop in hearing acuity dates from his stay at Caswell Clinic.

    Dr. Tegwyn Williams stated in his final report that Maurice Kirk was fit to plead as long as he was legally represented, because he was suffering from paranoid delusional disorder. The fact that Dr. Silva disagrees with Dr. T. Williams' report supports the urgency for releasing these other reports.      

    It appears that successive judges have relied on Dr. T. Williams report to deny my brother bail. Each time he has been refused the right to challenge the report.

    Yours sincerely

  • Newport Court 19th Jan

    Maurice appeared at Newport Court 19th Jan 2010 not knowing what he was there for until he walked in. It was a further bail application presented by others. The prosecution was taking advice from South Wales Police but especially Dolmans, the police solicitors acting on their behalf whose senior partner, Andrew Oliver, Maurice is suing along with the SWP in the Civil Court at the same time!
    The prosecution had to speak first but they have run out of arguments and so said that there was no change of circumstances since Judge Bidder heard the case on 17th December 2009.
    The application failed.
    The previous week at the Civil Court the Judge, His Honour Judge Seys Llewellyn QC instructed the Police to release to Maurice over 52 lever arch files. Now the Prison are refusing him access to them. This is the evidence he has been fighting to see for over ten years .

  • News From Prison

    Civil Court Judge has ordered the South Wales Police to produce the 52 files for Maurice but when they eventually arrived the Prison Authorities refused to give any to him. At last, with more delay, they have allowed him access to 6 files at a time (so no cross-referencing possible) and each batch available every day or so thus meaning he has no time to prepare for his criminal case which starts 25th Jan. He is still being denied his laptop on which he has filed evidence.

    Because he has recently won a case for excessive physical restraint against Reliance, the firm employed to move prisoners from Prison to court, hospital etc, they have seen to it that he has even more restrictions placed on his visiting rights.

  • Civil Proceedings Lodged

    Maurice started his Civil Proceedings against the South Wales Police this morning in the County Court.

    The Solicitors, acting for the Police, admitted in court that they had no copy of their complaint to the Police against Maurice which led to his arrest on 22nd June. He had been accused of threatening to throw the bundle of witness exchange papers into the building, as he was not allowed in and they would not accept them.

    Further, the Judge has ordered the Police to identify the police officers involved over the last 20 years in over 100 incidents where they have proof of which ones were involved.


    COURT REF: T2009 7445

    5th Nov 09

    Dear Sir


    I am in receipt today of CPS Application to extend my prison sentence, of indeterminate length, into 2010.

    The 5 pages of fairy tale nonsense were as expected.  In a week when some purported psychiatrist, at least the 9th so far, featuring in this case, before we count up all the physiologists, psychotherapists, doctors, social workers and South Wales Policemen who sat around Multi Agency Public Protection meetings each month, I was half expecting a paddy wagon of men in white coats to take me away, away, away.

    I am into the last chapter of Bloch and Reddaway’s ‘Russia’s Political Hospitals’ and about to start on ‘Gulag a History’, by Pulitzer Prize winner Ann Applebaum. The similarity to the conduct of the last 6 Cardiff Crown Court Judges, HM Court Service and HM Prison, Cardiff and Caswell Clinic is frightening.

    26 Oct 2009 CPS letter states South Wales Police ‘Reveal’:
    Date of offence came to light – 27/05/09 – Bloody Liars.

    CPS do not disclose sequence of correspondence, taken from my laptop during its custody, in anticipation of this expensive smokescreen to screw my 16 year running civil action for damages, now coming to a head with Barbara Wilding, Chief Constable, knowingly signing the 25 Feb 2009 false affidavit for actions CF6141159- MC65, CF101741 and CF204141.

    His Honour Judge Seys-Llewellyn QC has read, or should have read, my sequence of documents lodged on Cardiff County Court.

    Eg.      24 April 2009 17 page Position Statement of Plaintiff to Court
    or         8 May 2009 10 page document headed Police Surveillance to Adrian Oliver, Barbara’s private solicitor, who had me arrested on 22 June 2009.

    But what is ‘new under the sun’, when dealing with the privileged few running our Law Courts, immune to prosecution and answerable to none?

    PS  Where are all communication records between You, County Court, Caswell Clinic, Police, CPS and Prison?

    Regina v. Kirk

    Dear Sir,

    The Recorder of Cardiff, His Honour Judge Cooke QC, has given an order that I be further sectioned under Art. 35 of the 1983 Mental Health Act and thereby refusing me bail.

    His Honour Judge Bidder QC, along with around six other Cardiff Judges have also refused me bail so far, only on the basis of Psychiatric Reports, it appears, if one only reads the transcripts.

    Cardiff Court has indicated ‘subject to the Legal Services Commission', and independent psychiatrist etc., ‘all of these things are available to him at public expense,' should I instruct a solicitor.

    I therefore request you nominate a London Firm of Solicitors to obtain bail as transcripts, so far obtained, clearly indicate both transcripts and medical reports will be paid for under Cardiff Judges orders at the tax payers' expense. I do not believe a word of it.

    To date, I have been refused all specific disclosure, independent medical attention, and sight of the Cardiff Court Log in order to establish if my letters arrive. Who else appears to have an interest in my imprisonment and has there been appropriate steps taken to expedite my release from the eight court judges refusals since 22nd. June 2009?

    Upon release from prison my likely residence will be in London, as I have a number of ongoing court actions against the South Wales Police, both at the Royal Courts of Justice and Privy Council.

    My numerous applications to preserve evidence, to the Court of Appeal (civil and criminal division) and administrative courts these past six months have proved futile.

    Yours faithfully

  • Update On Maurice

    The 11th and final Psychiatric Report on Maurice, carried out by Dr. Silva from Ashworth, has been followed up by removing him from the possibility of permanent exclusion from society by use of Article 35 of the 1983 Mental Health Act. A VICTORY for sanity and Maurice!

    Maurice has also been removed from the MAPPA surveillance system, but the authorities have refused to indicate when he was placed on the list and when he was removed from it and, indeed, who ordered him to be under such extreme (and expensive) scrutiny. Another VICTORY for Maurice.

    These two procedures have meant that he has been ON REMAND since 22nd June 2009 being locked away from society with £12 a week phone money but sometimes only minutes a day access to a phone which is shared by many, so always in a queue and overheard and monitored. It took 16 days for him to contact a lawyer with whom he had a limited conversation. The phone is only available for a brief time after breakfast. Not many Law Offices are open before 0830! As someone endeavouring to conduct his own defence, he has access to pen and paper, envelopes and some stamps but that is all. He is still on remand in Cardiff Prison.
