CROWN PERSECUTION SERVICE: ABUSE OF PROCESS
DAY 4046: SATURDAY JUNE 30TH 2012.
I guess the state would consider that some of us are born with a compliance malfunction.
And so, yesterday we were back in the criminal courts, looking to have the criminal "prosecutions" against me over our tents, that in being peaceful resistance are neither an obstruction or trespass, thrown out.
In our experience you can stand up and stand down bad law as we showed with SOCPA 2005 ss 132-138, which was recently repealed.
People should challenge bad laws, far more often.
It really would clean up Parliament (and the courts)
In a nutshell there will now be an abuse of process argument at City of Westminster Magistrates Court on July 25th at 2pm over the PRSR Act 2011.
We had turned up yesterday at West London Magistrates Court for the case management hearing where a trial for August 8th 2012 had been listed, only to discover that the case management hearing was moved back into Westminster Magistrates.
And so we traipsed all the way back over to Westminster.
And this is what happened.
They talked about my alleged "offence" without actually saying that is was about....a ...tent.
And the somewhat elusive Mr Harris, the Crown Persecutor, put in rather a.... special "appearance" !!
He told the court that he had not made the necessary disclosures, like police witness statements, because the police had not made the necessary disclosures to him.
Which is rather revealing really, when you think about....any ....err...decision making process..
Before Mr Harris then informed the court that he would not give reasons why the prosecution was in the the public interest.
The Chief Magistrate said she could not force him.
But....... she could have thrown it out, because he would not.
Instead proceedings were further stretched beyond even Kafkaesque proportions when time was set aside for a pretty straightforward abuse of process argument.
Which basically could only be ....proceedings must be stayed, because the Crown Persecutor has refused without lawful excuse to....errr follow the Crown Prosecutor's Code of Conduct, and provide reasons for his decision...
I applied for a memorandum/extract of the ....errr...proceedings.
We want to change the law and make filming in courts the norm.
Which really would shine a light on..justice.
It is about time.
The state cannot misuse law to physically force people to be part of a system that in only being designed to harm people isn't worth saving.
