Amazing, there is secrecy where there could be transparency:

1. Secrecy in Family Courts

  • we’ve long campaigned and petitioned and Sir James Munby has made the difference
  • Belinda McKenzie attended the hearing on 23 May 2014 in Watford where HHJ Parker announced proudly on behalf of her colleagues that this was a ‘public’ hearing of a family court;

2. Justice vanishes: the Erosion of the Rule of Law is an article published by the Institute of Race Relations. I received the link from mojuk AT mojuk.org.uk – John O provides this News Service about Miscarriages of Justice in the UK (MOJUK). It refers to

  • a criminal court hearing being heard in secret – presumably not the one and only one
  • secret evidence – presumably not the first time either
  • and secrecy in inquests – which is something I’ve come across before as well.

But who cares???

Following the most successful demo to Abolish the IPCC on Mayday, this demo is planned on the occasion of the conference Policing 2012: Delivering Accountability and Results. It will be another opportunity to

  • unite with fellow victims
  • express frustration and grudges
  • stand your ground by protesting and demonstrating.

June 12, 8am – 6pm: Central Hall Westminster, co-ordinated by Michael Doherty aka CardboardCoffinMan and publisher of Protest against Police Corruption.

Michael Doherty organised the excellent demo ABOLISH THE IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) on Mayday 2012.

It had the amazing response that Keith Vaz MP,  Chairman of the Home Select Committee, announced an inquiry into the powers and future of the IPCC.

Until this happens, please note:

And finally, know that the Royal Commission into New South Wales Police in 1996 resulted in three volumes: corruption, reform and paedophilia!

Demonstrators ask: Abolish the IPCC and Keith Vaz MP responds with an Inquiry

#CardboardCoffinMan Michael Doherty (here in the pub later, together with Ian Puddick) organised this demo that brought together some 200 protestors with excellent speeches.

But the real surprise was the prompt response by the Chairman of the Home Select Committee Keith Vaz MP, as announced by the BBC:

There will be an investigation, an inquiry into the operation, powers and the future of the IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission)

I wish all demos had such “instant gratification” and effective interaction between people, mainstream media and politicians!

Here are other mainstream media reports: Guardian Feature: Justice is impossible if you can not trust the police to tell the truth

Private Eye – Web of lies
