Reports on his current court case that started September 7, 2010 and previous stories. Please sign our online petition asking for Fair Trials and Compensation instead of an effective remedy before national authorities - in defence of Maurice and many other victims of financial exploitation and legal oppression. Here's the newsletter that invited people to sign. And here are the first wonderful comments by signatories.

Breaking News:

October 2011: Maurice on hunger strike in HMP Cardiff. See Political asylum granted by France - to a British citizen - for the first time since the French Revolution... For first time visitors, a one-page summary is on a complementary and introductory blog. Also, Maurice on a 12-minute video in Jersey.
  • Prisoner Kirk has no more phone credit to telephone out

    How do you kill a prisoner on remand slowly but surely?

    By delaying in- and outgoing post, by not allowing money to go in and out in a 21st century manner [the phone is excessively expensive to use in prison and postal orders are excessively expensive for sending money in and out!], by making it impossible to use the telephone and finally by blocking the phone so that visitors or even his lawyer can't book a visit!

    Here's Maurice's latest "cri de coeur": "Inspector Holder of South Wales Police is completing my IPCC complaints WITHOUT even having interviewed Lincolnshire Air Museum witnesses, Charles Kirk witness, all about re-painted machine gun."


    "Kirstie Kirk or me re 'prohibited weapon walking stick shot gun', to shoot the Lord Mayor of Cardiff, confiscated from my office during machine gun trial over 2 years ago."


    Why are South Wales Police, along with Dr xx manage me as a MAPPA Level 3 victim and not informing me?

    Ring Holder + 01656 302 139.

  • How can a Litigant in Person get Fair Trials while in Prison on Remand?

    Is it the UK, Wales or South Wales in particular, where prisons are medieval and prisoners on remand are treated as if they were criminals?

    Is it each prison Governor or the Cardiff one in particular who order that Maurice's Court Judgements are being opened and read before he gets them? 

    Whose orders are Prison Staff following, when they

    • refuse Maurice photocopying documents?
    • refuse Maurice sending letters as 'recorded delivery' - even though he put money 
    • take him to a court with 30 minutes warning - without indication of which court and which case? 

     Whose orders are Court Staff following, when they

    • refuse a duty solicitor
    • legal papers,
    • pen and paper, and, above all, READING GLASSES?

    Maurice believes that the IPCC England is his only hope for anything vaguely to do with fairness and justice. But then he's been called off the phone after barely 2 minutes...

    Meanwhile, his hunger continues strike because

    1. he's been refused the right to apply for bail 
    2. he's been refused proper independent psychiatric assessment and brain scan to cancel the current ruling that he cannot cross-examine prosecution witnesses 
    3. after all, the "remand warrant" says he's got "mental health issues" and Tottenham Police tried to section him using "the doctor's" false statement from over two years ago.

    Nobody I spoke to in Germany believes me. And I am still trying to find rational explanations for this kind of absolutely irrational behaviour of civil servants in public authorities working in "the public interest"!...

    Here's his latest phone call



     Fresh in is the official transcript of Maurice's appeal on the 1st of March at the Crown Court in Cardiff, available here for public scrutiny of the way things are done.

  • Next Court Case: Cardiff Magistrates Court, Thursday 12th April

    If I don't have a brain tumour, they lose...

    There is a recording of Maurice's latest phone call on this link [09:48 minutes]

    The gist is: 

    • the Welsh Authorities cannot allow Maurice to win
    • for they want their own jurisdiction.  
    • Whoever can come to court, please go and see Maurice!

    Besides this phone call, here's a letter from him: 



    1}  False Psychiatric Reports

    Ever since last September when Tottenham police relied on South Wales police forensic evidence to successfully have me sectioned under the 1983 Mental Health Act, I have been refused access to any Crown court for a bail application.

    2} False Magistrate Records

    Cardiff's Crown Prosecution Service refuses to disclose its purported preparation of a so-called "Restraining Order" the "Breaching" of which they all say is why I am to be incarcerated. My "Remand Warrant" reads "Mental Health issues" while the "Legal Manager" writes: "Notes taken during the course of proceedings are for the use of the court only"!

    3}  Police control Prison

    I have my already ridiculously restricted access to a telephone further curtailed by my McKenzie Friends pin numbers removed, blocked access to writing checques or further photocopying. 

    4} Brain scan refused

    Despite last weeks High Court order in England that I should receive proper independent attention I am refused.

    5} Repainted "Machine Gun" to fool a jury

    Police ignore IPCC instructions to properly investigate.

    6} Ministry of Justice Investigation

    Its 8 March 2012 letter extract:
    "Complaints are considered and responded to in  {?}  stages entirely within establishments"
    My account for why my applications in writing have been completely ignored should it embarrass those who wish to continue their battle in autonomy.

  • Enough is enough: Maurice refuses prison food as long as he can't telephone and photocopy

    Maurice writes: "no bail applications allowed to be heard by Crown Courts (even by Bristol Crown Court on 26th March) since 21st Sept 2011, when (he was) held in the Tottenham Police Station jail. Refused any phone out or photocopying."

    What is it with HMP establishments? Why are German prisoners on remand treated as if they were innocent and are generally even in different establishments from convicted prisoners? Obviously, staff would treat them differently and different procedures would be in place.

    Innocent until proven guilty - why does that not apply to those 200 people who are being sent to prison by family courts - in complete privacy and secrecy? No wonder that victims in the UK put their hopes on the EU. But if they get successful, they get victimised by the UK Authorities, as we know from a number of people. 

    Why are Maurice and the Musas being treated as if they were convicted and can't possibly be pursuing their legal proceedings, let alone be successful with them? Is that 'justice', fairness and equality of arms???

    Who tells the Governors? Who knows who benefits from such Draconian treatment? Who orders it? 

    And Ministers believe in a plan for growth and want to promote UK legal services abroad...

    I have only one explanation: young boys are sent far too early to boarding schools. Their emotional security gets so shattered that they have to compensate for major withdrawal symptoms... There are only very few boarding schools in Germany.
