How the State can seize all your assets

I would have liked to alert you to Caul Grant’s court hearing last Tuesday, but BT lost my landline and broadband for a week!
Whether as victim of a telecoms company, other corporations, Social Services, family or other courts, it is only a small consolation to know that one is not alone.
It helps – especially when we get to know one another and end up helping each other.
There’s an opportunity for victims of child snatchers outside Downing Street – until next Friday when petition signatures will be deliverd.
A networking meeting also took place at the House of Commons and in the Jubilee Cafe again – and the video is on or in short
The video is accompanied by an excellently presented exposure: retired BA pilot Len Lawrence shows how he was made a victim of the Court of ‘Protection’, so that his house could be sold under value, with lawyers cashing £100,000 and his ex-wife getting 85%. It’s called being ‘sectioned’ or having ‘lack of capacity’. The mental capacity to manage your own affairs.
I was first made aware of this situation by an expatriate in Canada whose aunt suffered this fate so that she could not inherit, but everybody who was nearer the honey pot or public gravy train. John Hemming MP has been interested in these ‘secret prisoners’ for they may end up not only without ‘capacity’ but also in prison or mental hospitals, as Maurice Kirk and Norman Scarth have experienced.
From his experience, Len Lawrence has discovered not only the unlawful use of the Mental Capacity Act, but also the connection with adoptions without parental consent. What an easy way of getting hold of your assets, when you are old, and your children, when you are young: let’s declare you not to have mental capacity. In fact, we can go further: once you leave prison, we can put you under a ‘Community Treatment Order’, i.e. you’ll get an injection once a month. We don’t need to tell you what’s in it. And why should you know what the side effects may be… I know one very remarkable woman who has been through this process. Fortunately, she’s, so far, the only one I know.
In my attempts to help individual cases as well as draw public attention to white collar crimes and criminals, I am maintaining a few blogs:
·         Punishment without Crime is a development of Ian Josephs’ forced adoption and focuses on child snatching as the most heinous of all white collar crimes – with an utter perversion of ‘justice’ in secret family courts:
o   The Secrecy of Family Courts should be lifted now is an going petition that is before the President of the Family Division as well as the Attorney General.
o   Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent is our appeal to the EU Parliament via their Petitions Committee – please sign so that we can reach the 2,000 limit soon!
o   The Dossier of Evidence is a compilation of links that hopefully will convince anybody that children are screaming to be heard.
·         Victims Unite is the general melting pot with posts, comments and visits
o   Public inquiry into white collar crimes is still open for signatures and we will approach the Justice Select Committee next.
·         When victims become starfighters, campaigners and activists, they often help others as McKenzie Friends
o   Hence we formed the Association of McKenzie Friends for voluntary public advocacy while assisting Litigants in Person
§  We have found a professional McKenzie Friend Alex Moore who acts as our legal advisor.
§  We have also found the Public Law Barrister Tomor Bahja who has submitted an excellent Judicial Review to stop the deportation of an American mother in jail who has not seen her 5-year-old son for 20 months.
§  And we anticipate acquiring charitable status and organise training as next steps.
§  Since the Judicial Working Group published its report about Litigants in Person, we need to mind the gap between ‘them’ the legal professionals and us the victims and ‘amateurs’!
o   Help4Lips is a partner organisation that has not only a Womens Lawyer on board but also premises that can be used for mediation, meeting and training purposes.
·         We Who Oppose Deception is for everybody who sees through the illusions produced by Hollywood and the mainstream media:
o   I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans is my latest post.
All in all, I would prefer if you clicked on the FOLLOW THIS BLOG button rather than hope I maintain email lists. This ‘decentralised’ way of organizing communication is much more congenial to the pace at which we change interest and email addresses, besides the ability to cope with too many missives.
And thus I wish you a ‘happy click and read’, while I keep doing my best NOT to despair at all crimes and cruelty that people do to others – by ‘just doing their job’ – just as in Nazi times, it seems…

    Council wins right to sell family assets to pay care bill

    A local authority has won the right to sell off family heirlooms, including a £30,000 Lucien Pissarro painting, to pay for an elderly man’s care bills.

    Essex County Council applied to the Court of Protection for permission to auction the painting after facing a shortfall of £14,400 a year to fund his dementia care. He also had liabilities of more than £100,000 which needed to be paid off.

    The man had never made a legal will and was no longer able to express his views, the court heard.

    However, his son, who cannot be identified and who has mental health issues, challenged the council’s application to sell his father’s assets as well as its bid to become his legal guardian.

    He claimed the council was acting maliciously by refusing to let his father return to his own home and was trying to auction items of deep sentimental value.

    The court heard that in fact, the son had spent almost £70,000 of his father’s assets without permission and was living in his house rent-free, preventing it from being sold or rented out to pay the care bills.

    The elderly man’s daughter also owed her father more than £22,000, it emerged.

    In a ruling issued on Friday following a two-year legal battle, District Judge Anselm Eldergill ordered the man’s son to vacate his father’s property and remove his furniture and effects within 28 days.

    He authorised Essex County Council to sell the cottage and all of the elderly man’s personal belongings, including the 1906 landscape, Stratford-upon-Avon Sunset, by Franco-British artist Lucien Pissarro, the eldest son of impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, which is expected to fetch between £20,000 and £30,000 at auction at either Sotheby’s or Christies.

    The work came to the family in question through a friend who was Lucien Pissarro’s uncle and has been held in storage with various other antiques.

    Judge Eldergill praised the council for the way it had handled the case, adding: “This is not a case of a bullying local authority abusing its powers over a vulnerable adult and their family; quite the opposite.”

    In a statement, the man’s son said that when he challenged proceedings, he had no idea that the court costs would spiral to what he claimed amounted to more than £100,000, money which will be taken out of his father’s estate.

    He expressed regret at the judge’s ruling and said he “fought for what he believed his father wanted”.

    He added: “I love my father dearly and would not want to do anything that would upset or hurt him or act to his detriment. My actions were borne out of love and care for my dear father and for no other reasons.”

    During the case, the son was admonished by the judge for repeatedly being in contempt of court by illegally posting details about the case on Facebook, with his local newspaper and on the walls of his local fish-and-chip shop.

    He also issued a habeas corpus writ and applied to the European Court of Human Rights claiming that his father was imprisoned.

    The court eventually ruled that the son lacked capacity to litigate in proceedings.
