Staying with Norman Scarth (as McKenzie Friend in County Court)
Judicial Review Application today
A very good day! The Judge listened and let Norman Scarth talk his prepared speech. I suggested the speech doc was handed in as court record for Appeal and European Court
Dam shame we had no McKenzie Angel T-shirts, still in London. But a freelance reporter took lots of photos of nearly 40 of us with our banners and megaphones: one set with Norman as the star and another one focussing on the Flying Vet.
We are going to repeat the argument in Manchester Magistrates Court tomorrow again on the right to bring private prosecutions.
Norman Scarth's application blocked, as expected, just like mine, filed from Caswell in 09:against Barbara Wilding, Chief Constable, and Adrian Oliver of Dolmans, solicitors
1. Not clear enough evidence of offence NOT TRUE...I read NS facts of crime clearly committed
2. Defendants, police and court officials refused to disclose their home addresses, so therefore summons could not be served!!.
Both Norman's and my private prosecutions are now going straight back into court in Bradford and Cardiff, as today's judgment re-affirmed: we are both right.
While police refuse to properrly investigate crime we MUST HAVE MORE PRIVATE PROSECUTIONS, ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, LAYED BEFORE MAGISTRATES WITH A FULL PUBLIC GALLERY.
PS I told the court clerk, afterwards, that the judge was extremely tolerant and I had sympathy for him, at short moments!
I told the clerk it was a pity we did not have more judges 'DOWN SOUTH', like him, who at least 'listened' even if his verdict, in my opinion, was not the correct one.
