In his attempts to get the Musa children out of the clutches of Haringey Council, Maurice visited Tottenham Police Station with them today. As a result, he has been detained. I was told "he's been looked after, wondering whether he has any mental health problems." Obviously, with an IQ of the top 5% of the population (as ascertained by Caswell Clinic), one is bound to be considered off the mental scale of normality!...
Anybody concerned, please phone 020 8345 0830. "Criminal damages" is the allegation...
At 3.15pm the Musas and myself entered the offices of Powell Spencer & Partners, solicitors, 290 Kilburn High Road, London, as I was told they were withholding the court bundle, supplied originally by Haringey Council. The Musas had had only one conference at these offices, before the solicitors were withholding the court records and the Musas' own information, on CD, originally supplied with the hope they may soon see or get back their children.
There then became a yoyo of farcical contradictions from varying partners and paralegals, passing through the waiting room, as to if and when the firm had ever acted for the Musas or even now acted either for the civil matter and, more urgently, the criminal matter causing the bail conditions, pending a charge about the children.
The ‘*** in the woodpile' was clearly the para-legal named Michelle Boldeau who, after our nearly six hours in the building, interrogating anyone I could find, admitted she had represented herself portrayed as a lawyer, when the Musas had been first arrested, on 28th June 2011, at St Thomas' s Hospital and were being interviewed on tape, whilst in custody in Hornsey police station.
Without telling the Musas, she had received their custody records that same day, had been communicating with the police, even this week, with reference to our frequent visits to various police stations. She deliberately misled her ‘clients' that they were not legally represented, but continued dealing with the police in order to continue drawing legal aid when the Musas were being told they had none!
The deceit went much further than here in this room. Court, police, Haringey Council and five other law firms of solicitors and oodles of barristers were all milking the tax payer for millions. The ‘gravy train' was only running, because family courts are secret, the only country, I am told in Europe with such an obscene example of avarice.
The partner, Mike Tait, soon ceased acting for them in the civil hearings annoyed that the Musas had first refused to eat or drink anything whilst in police cells and obtaining an immediate private but negative drug analysis following their release. His barrister, at the pre trial conference, re the snatching of the children by police and Haringey Council, he witnessed Alison Brooks informing the Musas that they would never see their children again explaining, perhaps, his reason for not attending the court, two days later. It was there that I saw her she strutting out of the July Royal Courts of Justice hearing leaving them both unrepresented.
According to the Musas, Brooks said, "Even though you cook African food for your children and they love it and enjoy it and have nice contact, you will never get your children back; because they belong to the State even though you are good parents".
Both McKenzie Angels attending the RCJ with me, Sabine and Ian Josephs, as McKenzie Friends, were refused entry to the court by judge Mostyn.
In the Kilburn solicitor's office, last night, I was told the judge, a Mr Brasse, had ordered the Musas were not allowed the court papers of that hearing when cancelling legal aid, leaving the Musas up the proverbial ‘creek without a paddle'!
I was to arrest Boldeau for apparent criminal conduct, if she did not immediately hand over her contemporaneous notes taken during the Musa police interviews, especially as she was now saying she was not acting for them!
But her computer should be seized by police, as it will record what, when and where clandestine communications were going on without clients' knowledge.
She was tipped off with our arrival at the office and typed her 1st 16th September letter (page 2) releasing part of the custody records the Musas would, otherwise, would never have known about.
An hour or so later she released a 13th September letter never received by the Musas.
She was to also ordered to hand over the withheld medical reports and custody records already in the Haringey's possession that must be somewhere in either Tait's file or her own. This seemed to provoke her 2nd 16th September letter to be typed as we waited, after she had disengaged herself from the case.
So, during the two hour wait and kind assistance of good Metropolitan police officers, passing by, who, incidentally, conducted themselves with impeccable cause for concern, extracted not just part of the their custody records from the solicitors, for us but also some important medical results.
Police attendance, as predicted, caused the main contentious issue to really crack wide open, Haringey's real motivation, the ‘adoption targets' and money laundered in such a lucrative industry.
In the Kilburn solicitors' office a solicitor promised the four of us the release of Haringey witness statements, this Monday, the ones needed to obtain the Musa's June arrest as they were mysteriously missing on the schedule of the court file he had now reluctantly released handed to me. From the very file the Musas could not have due some purported Court Order, if you wish to believe it, but Haringey council can.
It was becoming clear immunity to prosecution had been promised as long as the solicitors ‘played ball'. I therefore called for the police but it took nearly two hours and only by my running after a passing police car and flagging it down at the traffic lights did we get them at the crime scene.
Boldeau continued to refuse to hand over her contemporaneous notes of police interview or results of the long awaited other medical reports obviously also in the court file. Another hour went by with police arguing and refusing to take my detailed statement of the apparent conspiracy.
I was eventually physically evicted leaving the Musas again alone for thirty minutes, without any form of support which is appearing to be the pattern in family court cases.
We are now off to publically demonstrate, with megaphone and a gathering crowd of sympathisers, to have these children released and be allowed to go home to Nigeria.
The result of visiting Tottenham Police Station is our invitation to you to join us on Monday at 10am when Gloria will discuss the consequences of not having signed in according to her bail conditions three times a week - like a criminal!
The result of Maurice mentioning at Tottenham Police that he'll personally fly the Musa children back to Nigeria got him to be charged, not with "criminal damages" as the police told his sister and everybody else he phoned, but with conspiracy of child abduction.
Hence he'll be at Highbury Magistrates at 10am today, represented by the very firm of solicitors above. After all, they know about the case!... Should anybody reading this be able to witness him telling the Magistrates what is going on in and around Haringey Council, I'm sure he'd be delighted.
