Janner Must Attend Court.

It is normal procedure that a person whom the CPS have brought charges against should attend court and I think it is correct that Westminster Magistrates will compel Lord Janner to attend and hear the charges read out even if this is the only occasion that he does attend court. It is only right that Lord Janner be treated in exactly the same way anyone else would be.

There isn’t much more to add but I thought I’d just remark on what seems like a common misconception regarding the legal process that has now been embarked upon. There appears to be a presumption that there will be, what is known as, a ‘Trial of the Facts’. One small note of caution should be raised here. Although a ‘Trial of the Facts’ would appear to be the most likely outcome of the current legal process, it will be for the Judge when the case reaches a Crown Court to make the decision to have a ‘Trial of the Facts’ if Lord Janner is found to be unfit to plead. The controversy surrounding the original decision by DPP Alison Saunders not to proceed with a prosecution was that given the police evidence it was not her decision to make that Janner was unfit to plead but a Judge’s.

Though I believe this outcome would be extremely unlikely, it is possible that the trial Judge might come to the same conclusion as Alison Saunders had and decide that a ‘Trial of the Facts’ does not serve justice.

As I’ve written, I really do not think that a judge would come to that decision under the current circumstances as it would be vehemently criticised in many quarters, I only mention it as there seems to be a presumption that a ‘Trial of the Facts’ is inevitable when it is not necessarily the case and it is as important as it ever was that interested parties keep a very close eye on this process and presume nothing.

Lord Janner must appear at court in person for a hearing over child sex abuse charges, Westminster Magistrates’ Court has ruled.

The former Labour peer, 87, who has dementia, denies allegations of abuse in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

He did not attend court on Friday, and his defence said he was “unfit” to appear.

The case is likely to be sent to a crown court, which will decide whether Lord Janner is fit to face a trial.

The case comes after a review overturned a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decision not to bring charges because of his health.

    this is an outrage lord janner has done so much for boys charities over the years.
    his brain illness and being jewish royalty should preclude his attendance in court.

    this is not cricket talmudic practices of the child ritual nature have been going on for at least 5000 years.
    goy what is your beef.
    these are not jewish children we are talking of here just live stock from the goy food chain.
    let janner retire to italy like mcalpine and leon britainski ey say.
    or let him be allowed to live in peace in israel like the still living robert maxwell.
    stop this anti semetism i say for the sake of the innocent rabbi.

    Get him in the dock. Make him nervous and if he gets off due to his health make him pay back all that he took in pay for not doing what he claimed for. Works both ways.

    Is this like Chris Spivey must attend court?

    I keep seeing that Janner has Alzheimer’s / dementia. So which is it?

    He has ruined lives. Ruined. Lives. Of children.

    If he gets away with a hearing of facts. Well we can run our own court to try this c###. No problemo.

    Sorry for the harsh language.

    And it is coming soon. The people of this nation will want justice and if that means civil courts and vigilantes then so be it. Common law will fill a void.

    Well they abducted that old Auschwitz guy and to him to Germany in a wheelchair. What goes round comes round. Obviously to some, raping and killing poor folks’ kids isn’t a very serious crime compared to being a guard in a camp.
    Poor folks courts might see it differently.
