SCOUSE GROOMER

Married Liverpool man jailed for grooming and abusing 13-year-old girl

Ian Croston was jailed for seven years

Ian Croston who groomed a 13-year-old girlIan Croston who groomed a 13-year-old girl A married man who groomed and abused a 13-year-old girl has been jailed for seven years.
Ian Croston, 49, bombarded his schoolgirl victim with thousands of texts, as he organised secret meetings – at his mother’s graveside.
Croston was found guilty of three charges of sexual activity with a child after a three day trial at Liverpool Crown Court.
The jury heard heard how Croston, from south Liverpool, had taken advantage of the victim.
Nicholas Walker, prosecuting, said: “Mr Croston drew her into him and she became infatuated. While she knew he was 47, she said he acted more like he was 15.”
The victim told police how Croston took her on secretive fishing trips, and recalled how she had cried in the toilet after he had sex with her.
He even took her to his mother’s grave to kiss her in private.
A victim impact statement told how she became “insular and depressed” after the abuse – which was only uncovered when her mother found messages from Croston on her phone.
The family also spoke of their guilt over the abuse the young girl suffered, which has led to her struggling in school after the ordeal.
Judge Thomas Teague, QC, said: “You cultivated an unhealthy relationship with a child and sexualised her.
“The victim knew she was speaking the truth, and now the defendant admits it, too, it’s a period of custody you could have reduced if you had had the courage to admit your actions.
“Now you have admitted that the victim was telling the truth all along, but it’s too late.
“You clearly took advantage of her infatuation and not on just the three occasions you have admitted.
“This was plainly a highly predative offence.”
The pair exchanged an astonishing 9,000 text messages between late 2012 and June last year, including 433 on one single day.
Mr Walker told the court: “He took advantage of her. But now she is doing well at school, she has been able to put it past her and look forward.”
Croston will now be on the sex offenders’ register for life, and is banned from having any contact with a girl under 18.
The victim’s family applauded as Judge Teague gave his sentence after the three-day trial.

SCOUSE NUNS PROTECTED BY COPS,FAMILIAR STORY EH…

SCOUSE NUNS PROTECTED BY COPS,FAMILIAR STORY EH…

Mersey man who claims he was abused by nuns as a child slams police for wrongly telling him they were dead

Terry Daley was told a criminal investigation was impossible

Terry Daley said the abuse shattered his personal lifeTerry Daley said the abuse shattered his personal life A dad who says he was abused by nuns for five years as a child has condemned police for wrongly telling him all his alleged tormentors were dead.
Terry Daley was desperate to prosecute the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary convent for physical and sexual abuse at a special school in Ormskirk when he was aged 10 to 15. The nuns are now based in Chigwell, Essex.
The 68-year-old says he was regularly punched in his solar plexus and struck in his groin and feet with a wooden wedge while in the showers.
The Sisters and their staff also allegedly stuck scissors in boys’ feet, and youngsters were struck on the collar bone with wooden tongs.
Mr Daley also claims his piano teacher sexually abused him by fondling him while he played.
He contacted Lancashire Police about the treatment at Pontville Special School after another now-adult resident publicly detailed the alleged abuse he also suffered at the convent.
But in 2001, senior detectives told Mr Daley, from Runcorn, Cheshire, none of the nuns from that era were still alive, making any criminal investigation impossible.
Almost a decade later, Lancashire Police admitted one nun, allegedly involved, remained alive aged 85, but with dementia, giving her medical immunity from prosecution.
The force has apologised for what they described as giving out ‘erroneous information.’ But it has emerged no further action will be taken.
Mr Daley says he was offered £10,000 compensation offer by the Chigwell nuns, but with solicitors fees set to take two thirds of that amount, it would leave the former seaman with just £3,508.
The father-of-seven, who says the abuse shattered his personal life and led to countless broken relationships, is set to refuse the offer.
Mr Daley said: “The whole investigation, from the police looking into what those nuns did to us, to police telling me all our abusers were dead, has been a shambles.
“There was a chance for somebody to be prosecuted, but police insisted all the nuns were dead, a statement which, 10 years later, was proved wrong. It’s incredible Lancashire Police can’t be held accountable for such a shoddy response.”
Describing one episode at Pontville, about a male staff member, Mr Daley added: “There was a bloke who told us he’d been in Burma and a Prisoner of War with the Japanese.
“He was a very cruel man and used to practise his ‘Bread Basket’ punch on us – it really hurt.
“He cut my eye one time hitting me while wearing a ring. At shower time he would strip off and get in the showers with us and it wasn’t unusual to punch the kids in the testicles.”
Mr Daley’s solicitor, Peter Howard, said: “My client’s complaint was a very serious one yet it appears to have been treated in a rather preordained manner and somewhat flippantly.”
A police spokeswoman said: “A complaint was made by Mr Daley about the way we handled the incident. A thorough investigation by the force’s Professional Standards Department found that the investigation carried out was thorough and the conduct of the officer was appropriate.
“These findings were also backed up by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.”
The Sisters of the Sacred Heart said: “We will co-operate in any way we can.”

SCOTTS CHILD ABUSE PETITION

SCOTTS CHILD ABUSE PETITION

    http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefingsAndFactsheets/Petitions%20briefings%20S4/PB15-1551.pdf  Briefing for the Public Petitions CommitteePetition Number:PE1551Main Petitioner:Scott PattinsonSubject:Mandatory reporting of child abuseCalls on the Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to introduce legislation that makes it a criminal offence to fail to report child abuseBackgroundThere are no specific mandatory regulations in the UK requiring professionals who work with children to report suspicions about child abuse to the authorities. However, in Northern Ireland, it is an offence not to report an arrestable crime to the police, which, by definition, includes crimes against children. In the rest of the UK, professionals who work with children report their concerns and are expected to co-operate and exchange information. Expectations with regard to reporting and information sharing are clearly set out in legislation and guidance1.Guidance for professionals in Scotland is set out in National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland 2014(“the Guidance). The Guidance also sets out the wide-ranging and relevant legislation in relation to the protection of children. The legal duty to investigate and report issues in relation to child protection is derived from two sources: the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 which provides the mandate for police officers; and the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011, sections 60-64 of whichset out the duties and powers of local authorities, constables, courts and other persons to refer all children who may be in need of compulsory measures of supervision to the Scottish Children’s Reporters’ Administration;and section 66 ofthis Act which requires the Principal Reporter to consider whether such compulsory measures of supervision are necessary,in which case the Reporter must refer the case to the Children’s Hearing under section 69.The Guidancepoints out that all agencies that work with children and their families have a shared responsibility for protecting children and promoting, supporting and safeguarding their wellbeing. Each has a different contribution to make to this common task. 1NSPCC factsheet -Child abuse reporting requirements for professionals(July 2014). 2These include: identifying wellbeing concerns; sharing relevant information; contributing to risk assessments and Child Protection Plans; and, in some instances, actively contributing to investigations and providing specialist advice or support.With regard to identifying and managing risk, the Guidance states that:“……all notifications of concerns about children should be taken seriously. Staff responsible for responding to concernswhich are raisedshould be aware that even apparently low-level concerns may point to more serious and significant harm. They should be sufficiently skilled in gathering information and carrying out initial risk assessments that children at risk of significant harm are not overlooked. Practitioners should consider all cases with an open mind and not make any assumptions about whether abuse has, or has not, occurred. It is important to share relevant information with the appropriate people or agencies. Practitioners need tobe alert to the possibility of abuse both of children they already know and in cases where concerns about child abuse or neglect are not stated at the outset. Social work services and police have a clear statutory role in deciding whether an investigation should take place. Any service may receive a notification of concern about a child’s safety and these should be shared with social work. When social work services are notified of concerns about a child’s safety, they will need to form a view as to the nature of the child’s needs and what response is needed, if any. All concerns, including those that do not require an immediate response, should be acknowledged quickly, indicating when a response will be made.” The question posed by the petitioner is whether there is a need to introduce mandatory reporting as an additional protection if the current guidance and legislationfail to adequately protect children. It would appear that the petitioner would like to see mandatory reporting introduced, not justfor professionals working in child protection, but for the wider general public also.The petitioner envisages that failure to report child abuse to the relevant authorities should be a criminal offence.As the petitioner points out, mandatory reporting systems for certain groups or professionals have been introduced and used in a number of other jurisdictions (e.g. Canada, Australia and the USA). Parliaments in all Australian states and territories have enacted mandatory reporting laws of some description. However, the laws are not the same across all jurisdictions. The main differences concern who has to report, and what types of abuse and neglect have to be reported. There are also other differences, such as the state of mind that activates the reportingduty (i.e. having a concern, suspicion or belief on reasonable grounds) and the destination of the report.There is evidence to suggest that existing mandatory reporting regimes can lead to unintended adverse consequences, such as creating a culture of reporting rather than acting; dissuading children from disclosing incidents for3fearof being forced into hostile legal proceedings; or overwhelming an already stretched child protection system so that attention is diverted from where it is most required. The report of a round-table discussion on mandatory reporting, facilitated by the NSPCC and attended by professionals working in the field of child protection2, highlighted the risks, concerns and unintended consequences of universal mandatory reporting:evidence suggests that the universal model can create a significant increase in the number of reports to statutory agencies. This leads to diversion of resources from provision of support and services, into assessment and investigation. Linked to this is the risk that children who are being abused or at risk of being abused are less likely to be identified and helped than they were before universal mandatory reporting does not guarantee effective child protection and creates a false sense of security. It has resulted in child protection work forces placing greater focus on investigation at the expense of safeguarding. There are high percentages of unsubstantiated reports in countries such as the USA and parts of Australia (approximately 78%). High levels of unsubstantiated reporting do not necessarily mean that the reports were wrong; abuse may have taken place prosecutions for non-reporting are low and in some countries there have been no prosecutions e.g. Canada. Despite universal mandatory reporting laws there are significant instances of abuse within settings in the USA, Canada and Australia with inquiries ongoing at present universal mandatory reporting may deter victims from seeking help for example from sexual health clinics due to concerns about confidentiality and/or being catapulted into the criminal justice system without their consent or proper preparation. Universal mandatory reporting may also deter families from revealing abuse in order to seek help there is evidence that children value the opportunity to disclose abuse and want to remain party to the decision to officially report the abuse. Removing their right to involvement in the decision making process, for older children, could have perverse consequencesOn 9 July 2014, the BBC carried a news story pointing out that Peter Wanless, Chief Executive of the NSPCC, said there should be a duty on institutions like hospitals, children’s homes and boarding schools to report abuse. Mr Wanless told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “If someone consciously knows that there is a crime committed against a child, and does 2Exploring the case for mandatory reporting: a summary of a roundtable hosted by the NSPCC: July 2014. 4nothing about it because they put the reputation of the organisation above the safety of that child, that should be a criminal offence.” The article stated that the NSPCC had previously opposed all forms of so-called mandatory reporting.On 3 March 2015, the office of the Prime Minister stated that new criminal sanctions forthose who fail to protect children from sexual exploitation would be at the heart of a package of new measures to be announced imminently.The UK Government will consult on extending the new criminal offence of‘wilfulneglect’of patients to children’s social care, education and elected members as part of its national response to damning reports which found systematic institutional failings and cultures of denial and blame in Rotherham, and elsewhere.

112Privacy and civil rights campaigners have urged the Scottish government to drop plans for a new identity database which could allow public bodies, including tax authorities, to share every adult’s private data.Scottish ministers have been accused of introducing a central database by stealth after civil servants quietly published plans to expand an NHS register to cover all residents and share access with more than 100 public bodies, including HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).Public consultation on the proposal, which has faced intense opposition in the Scottish parliament after the scale and reach of the project came to light, ended on 25 February.Critics claim the plans for the wholesale use in Scotland of the unique citizen reference number (UCRN) were extremely similar to the national ID card proposals by the UK Labour government, which were dropped on privacy and civil rights grounds after the coalition took office in 2010.Alarm grew after it emerged the NHS register, which covers about 30% of Scottish residents and is also used to get a youth entitlement card and a pensioners’ travel card, was linked to a new Scottish income tax database being set up by HMRC.HMRC has found it harder than expected to identify every Scottish-resident taxpayer for the new Scottish income tax system, which comes into force in April 2016 as Holyrood’s tax powers increase. The database would be used to find taxpayers missed using current HMRC records.Jim Killock, of the Open Rights Group, said the central database could allow officials in different agencies to access personal data and allow data mining and profiling in future.The ORG said it was striking that the proposals were not being treated as primary legislation and debated fully in the Scottish parliament.AdvertisementThe Scottish plans appeared to have ignored the privacy problems raised by Labour’s ID card scheme and the latest best practice, even though the UK Cabinet Office was acting to address them, Killock said.Because so many government services, including tax and social security payments, now needed to be accessed online, the UK government plans to employ an outside agency to verify someone’s identity securely and privately before they use a government website.After about 200 supporters of the ORG challenged the plans in the consultation, Killock said: “The Scottish government should reject these proposals and review their entire identity and data sharing systems to safeguard the privacy of the Scottish people.”The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, the umbrella group for Scotland’s charities, said it would be pressing the first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, to abandon the proposals. It raised the very real risk of a massive data breach if an official lost a laptop or a database was hacked, undermining trust in public services, said Ruchir Shah, SCVO’s head of policy and research.“We are concerned that [the] Scottish government is being hoodwinked into a proposal that suits public sector agencies but creates the conditions for a scandal waiting to happen.”After tabling a motion opposing the plans in Holyrood, Willie Rennie, the Scottish Liberal Democrat leader, said it was still unclear how much the database would cost or how it would be policed.“Anyone with a liberal bone in their body will find the SNP’s super ID database plans worrying,” he said. “Expanding access to the central register to 120 public bodies and assigning each person with a unique reference number would be intrusive, costly and would increase the power of the over-mighty state.”Prof Alan Miller, chairman of the Scottish human rights commission, said it would closely monitor this project using its statutory powers to ensure it complied with the Human Rights Act and the European convention on human rights.“The increased digitalisation of data, including across public services, brings with it a need to ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect our human rights,” Miller said.“We will monitor any expansion of the NHS central register to ensure that the apparent safeguards for protecting human rights contained in the current proposals are implemented adequately and are robust in practice.”Margaret Curran, the shadow Scottish secretary, said the proposal was in keeping with a new culture of centralisation and secrecy by Scottish ministers. “If the SNP government pushes ahead with this proposal, [it] will be entering uncharted territory. Our NHS records have never been used to decide who pays tax, and it is not used for that purpose anywhere else in the UK,” she said.The Scottish government confirmed the extended database would be used to identify taxpayers for HMRC, help trace children “missing within the education system” and allowed streamlined access to online government services.A spokeswoman insisted, however, that the UK government’s approach of using a third party, secure verification service had been rejected.“We have an unequivocal commitment to protecting and respecting individuals’ privacy and will respond to the consultation adhering to that,” she said.“In England, verification of identity for online services is being handled by private companies under contract to the UK government. We do not agree with this private sector approach. In Scotland, we have consulted on extending our existing approach to the central government sector. “If we take these proposals forward, data provided by individuals to service providers would be verified against a trusted existing source managed by the public sector.”

SCOTTISH SCHOOLGIRL, 15, KIDNAPPED AND RAPED FOR 32 HOURS

BY DAVE FINLAY, 10 JUL 2015 12:31The High Court in Edinburgh

SCOTTISH SCHOOLGIRL, 15, KIDNAPPED AND RAPED FOR 32 HOURS

A man who snatched a schoolgirl off the street and subjected her to a horrific catalogue of rape and abuse that lasted 32 hours is facing life behind bars.Mark Armstrong kidnapped his 15-year-old victim as she returned home from netball practice and warned her he had a flick knife and he would use it if she tried to flee or scream for help.Armstrong, 26, strangled the girl and subjected her to a brutal prolonged sex attack in the grounds of a derelict cottage.Afterwards he led the girl back to his home in Dunfermline and continued to subject her to sexual abuse and rape.Advocate depute Jane Farquharson told the High Court in Edinburgh: “The accused only spoke to tell her what to do, to shut up or stop shivering.”The victim’s mother had reported her missing after searching for her daughter. Police who were searching the derelict cottage at Kingseat Road found the girl’s clothing.Only hours later did unemployed Armstrong finally free his captive and return her phone. The girl later told police: “I just wanted to call my mum.”The victim had facial injuries that left her unrecognisable to officers from the photos of her they had been given in the missing person inquiry.Armstrong, of Macbeth Road, Dunfermline, admitted abducting, assaulting and raping the girl between March 12 and 14 this year.He also pled guilty to a string of assault and robbery offences committed against women in the Fife town in the days leading up to the attack on the teenager.Miss Farquharson said the Crown would be seeking that an application be made for the imposition of an Order for Lifelong Restriction on Armstrong.A judge told Armstrong: “You have pled guilty to an appalling course of criminal conduct culminating in violent and sexual offences of the utmost depravity against a young girl then aged 15.”Lady Wise said that as a first stage she would call for a background report on Armstrong with a risk assessment. She placed him on the sex offenders’ register and remanded him in custody.

SCOTTISH SOV ON ROBERTS ARREST AND SOME RATS

Robert Green jailed for Breach of Peace & bail conditions

By Anonymous, submitted on Sat, 18/02/2012 – 12:10Claims of COVER UP as Judge jails anti abuse campaigner for ONE YEAR to justify £1/2 million cost of trial started by ex Lord Advocate AngioliniAnti abuse campaigner Robert Green is sentenced to ONE YEAR in jail for handing out leaflets calling for abuse inquiry. IN what many legal observers have branded a STAGGERING decision, Sheriff Principal Edward Bowen sitting at Stonehaven Sheriff Court earlier today took the unprecedented step of jailing the well known anti-abuse campaigner Robert Green to ONE YEAR in prison, for a ‘crime’ which can be traced back to Green’s arrest in February 2010 by Grampian Police officers on orders from the Crown Office for the heinous offence of attempting to hand out leaflets calling for an inquiry into allegations of child abuse raised by downs syndrome victim Hollie Greig and her mother, Anne Greig who were forced to flee Aberdeen some years ago after Grampian Police and Scotland’s Crown Office refused to investigate allegations of child abuse by an alleged paedophile gang based in the area.The stiff sentence issued by Sheriff Bowen, who, it is claimed, failed to declare relationships with key figures central to the case which included the now former Lord Advocate Dame Elish Angiolini DBE QC (née McPhilomy) brings to a close for now, Scotland’s most expensive ever Breach of the Peace trial which saw a record HALF A MILLION POUNDS spent on the investigation & trial of Mr Green, a case which tunnelled through the Scottish Courts system for over two years at huge cost to taxpayers.A legal insider speaking this evening to Scottish Law Reporter branded the one year sentence as “excessive”, putting it down to the judge needing to justify the enormous amount of money & effort spent on bringing Mr Green to trial.He said : “The sentence has little to do with justice, rather it appears more to do with the Crown Office, Police, the Court Service and a collection of questionably motivated ‘others’ needing to take someone’s head off to justify the enormous amount of taxpayers money they have spent on their vindictive pursuit of Mr Green.”The record spend of at least half a million pounds on the case included FIFTEEN PRE TRIAL HEARINGS at Stonehaven Sheriff Court, 18,000 travel miles for the accused, trips by Grampian Police Officers to England to search & raid homes & seize property including computers & documents, Crown Office staff being flown into Aberdeen especially for the case, and a witness list which at one point totalled SIXTY ONE persons.The Hollie Demands Justice campaign issued a Press Release, stating it very much regrets the decision today of the Sheriff Court in Stonehaven to deprive Robert Green of his Liberty.The Hollie Demands Justice campaign said : “Despite breaches of Mr Green’s human rights and repeated irregularities in law and process by the police, the legal profession and the court system since Robert Green was first arrested in February 2010, the Sheriff Court in Stonehaven, Sheriff Principle Edward Bowen saw fit to curtail his freedom, sentencing him to 1 year in jail (9 months for Breach of the Peace, 3 months for Breach of Bail conditions).”“Robert has been a most robust and valued campaigner on behalf of Hollie Greig and her mother Anne, in seeking justice for the wrongs inflicted upon Hollie, exposing the lack of a duty of care from those in positions of trust, the perjury of Grampian Police and highlighting the nefarious nature of the legal system and the Establishment in both Scotland and England.”Speaking in response to the sentencing of Mr Green, Annie Greig, the mother of Hollie said : “Hollie and I would like to publicly thank Robert Green for his bravery, his tireless work and his dedication to Hollies cause, her search for justice. We consider ourselves most fortunate to have found such a man of principle to act and campaign on our behalf, whose selfless actions have taken him into conflict with those who would abuse their power and powerful connections to evade justice. Our disappointment with the legal system in Scotland now knows no bounds. In our opinion Robert Green should be awarded a medal, not a criminal conviction.”Mrs Greig continued : “It is our hope that Robert’s legal team will mount a speedy and energetic appeal on his behalf to release him from this enforced loss of his liberty that he most certainly does not deserve and we now state publicly that we will have fears for his well-being whilst in prison. We will hold responsible and accountable those who have seen fit to incarcerate him should any interference with his being or any harm befall him.”“I would like to thank all the wonderful people who have supported Hollie, Robert and myself during this long and ongoing campaign, especially those who have repeatedly made the long trip to Scotland regularly giving support to Robert during his many hearings. Both Hollie and myself extend our heartfelt wishes, our thoughts and our prayers are with Robert today.”Speaking to one of our reporters late today, a Crown Office spokesperson commented : “Following a trial on summary complaint at Stonehaven Sheriff Court, George Robert Green (27/03/46) was convicted of breach of the peace and breaches of bail. Sentencing is a matter for the court.”However, the Judiciary for Scotland declined to comment to one of our journalists, a spokesperson stating : “The Judicial Office does not comment on individual cases.” No sentencing statement has been released from the Scottish Court Service.No statement has yet been released by Green’s defence team on their further plans, which many expect to include an appeal. However, one observer to the trial told Scottish Law Reporter tonight : “Robert’s jail sentence for daring to stand up to the powers that be is nothing short of evil.”He continued : “How can it be that someone who campaigns on behalf of a little girl who the authorities appear to agree was abused, gets sent to jail, while the same authorities have never bothered to fully investigate the allegations or arrest anyone for committing the abuse they themselves say took place.”A reminder of previous events in the trial of anti abuse campaigner Robert Green can be viewed in earlier coverage by Scottish Law Reporter HERE and further coverage of the Hollie Greig case along with a recent investigation into the knighthood of Angiolini, apparently recommended by the Scottish Government.Sheriff in £1/2Million trial of anti abuse campaigner failed to declare relationship with Lord Advocate on Northern Lighthouse Board ‘lawyers club’ . Sheriff Principal Edward Bowen who heard Scotland’s most expensive ever Breach of the Peace trial of anti abuse campaigner Robert Green and subsequently found Mr Green guilty of committing a breach of the peace over an attempt to hand out leaflets in Aberdeen during February 2010, is today alleged to have failed to declare a relevant relationship with one of the central characters of the trial, former Lord Advocate Dame Elish Angiolini DBE QC who served as a Commissioner along with Sheriff Principal Bowen on the Northern Lighthouse Board together with a large, if curious gathering of senior members of the legal profession, the judiciary & prosecutors which includes the current boss of the Crown Office, Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland, and his deputy, the Solicitor General, Lesley Thomson.Former Lord Advocate now Dame Elish Angiolini employed Cayman Islands hopping lawyers from Glasgow. Reporting on the background of the case, Robert Green was arrested by Police on 12th February 2010 in relation to a breach of the peace alleged to have been committed in Aberdeen when Mr Green attempted to hand out leaflets regarding the anti-abuse campaign. It was also revealed the then Lord Advocate, now Dame Elish Angiolini had employed private law firm Levy McRae to serve interdicts on Mr Green in connection with his campaign to ‘out’ alleged abusers of downs syndrome victim Hollie Greig. Glasgow law firm Levy McRae who later represented shamed former Glasgow City Council Boss & Cocaine addict Steven Purcell, proceeded to threaten several media outlets & journalists over their reporting of the case, covered by Scottish Law Reporter HERE & HERE. The Glasgow City Council Purcell cocaine scandal caused some newspapers to ‘evaluate’ their relationship with Levy McRae, details of which were featured in a report here : HERE.Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill worked at, has ties to same law firm used by then Lord Advocate Elish Angiolini in interdict case. As details of the case began to be reported in the wider press, it emerged the Scottish Justice Secretary, Kenny MacAskill had links to LEVY MCRAE, the law firm employed by the then Lord Advocate Elish Angiolini in legal action against Mr Green. Mr MacAskill has made no comment on the fact he served his apprenticeship at Levy McRae and also worked at the firm for a considerable time during his years as a solicitor before he entered politics, while he is thought to have backed Dame Angiolini in her actions at the time. The revelations were reported by Scottish Law Reporter at the time, HERE.

Re: Robert Green jailed for Breach of Peace & bail conditions

By Anonymous

why doesn’t Green and his supporters launch a private prosecution and present his prrof to a court?
I have watched every video and although Green makes a sympathetic case he presents no proof.
I also abhor this idea that a person accuses a number of “powerful” people of such a serious crime and then demands they prove they didn’t do it which is what Green has done.26/02/2012 – 15:402

Robb Ryder on James Madison’s talkshoe call 2/20/12
Discusses the fact that a man who was scheduled to be sentenced in a Michigan court on 2/20, sent them a Plea of the Crown in advance of the hearing. He never made it inside the courtroom. His lawyer intercepted him and told him the case was dismissed. Rob: we need to change the wording so that the charges are discharged, not dismissed. We need to know that these remedies exist in the court of Exchequer, and demand that they give them to us. The Chief Justice of the Circuit court (in Michigan) is the Chancellor. He’s over the court of exchequer, the court of common pleas, and chancery. He has jurisdiction over common law, equity, and natural law, though “I never heard of a court that claimed jurisdiction over natural law.” All they can be judging is, are you alive or dead; because your body has been registered, and as long as it is, there’s an agreement that runs ‘with the land’. (Our bodies are “land”.) We need to unregister our land, and claim our estate. To do that, in my opinion, you need an original writ, under the Great Seal, out of the court of Chancery. That goes into the court of common pleas, where they do what is called a fictitious common recovery. There is a plaintiff nominee, (not you) and a vouchee and a voucher. One of them will give up his claim.
I think you can get someone out of jail with it, because they all have the same flaw; none of them have an original writ under the great seal from the court of Chancery; therefore this case couldn’t be worth more that 40 shillings or 20 dollars. If it’s not worth more than $20, how can anyone go to jail? I think something is being concealed, and I demand it be investigated. I man in Utah went to the county prosecutor with this Plea on a foreclosure that happened two years ago. I haven’t heard back from him, other than that they spoke for an hour. We need to go either to the prosecutor, or to the Sarjeants at law. You can’t bring this to the lower court. All civil matters are appealable to the king’s bench, and that’s where you have to go.
If they ask you ‘where did you get this Plea?’ you can answer, ‘what does it matter? I just want to know, is it lawfull?’
[Regarding the case in Michigan, “Jesse James” has a Personal Protective Order placed against him by his ex-girlfriend, so he wasn’t allowed within her sight. However, she started following HIM, then calling the cops and having him charged. They took away his guns and other items. He’s supposed to get his guns back today. And of course the charges were dropped.]
The court, knowing that Jesse doesn’t know why the Plea works, is trying to get him to re-contract back into their jurisdiction, by trying to get him to wear a tracking device in order to get his guns back. This would be a mistake, potentially a very serious one.23/02/2012 – 00:053

The claims that people have connections to a certain law firm and that this therefore proves some sort of conspiracy is absolutely ridiculous and demonstrates an ignorance of the law.
It would be very odd to have a law firm that didn’t have connections with nearly every other person involved in the law from judges, police and other lawyers. Utter nonsense.26/02/2012 – 15:434

PROOF ! ?
Don’t make me laugh, you really think a little girl and her mother would fight so long and so hard if this didn’t happen ?
You ought to learn to couple your skill in logic with your experience in human nature.

I have watched every video and although Green makes a sympathetic case he presents no proof.
I also abhor this idea that a person accuses a number of “powerful” people of such a serious crime and then demands they prove they didn’t do it which is what Green has done.

Print this7 commentsHave your say!Scotland’s justice system is failing to bring enough child sexual abuse cases to court, MSPs have warned, with too many prosecutions being abandoned before reaching a jury.Doubts over the reliability of witnesses means only a “small minority” of cases are coming before a judge, according to the cross-party group on adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse at Holyrood.It said juries should have the opportunity to determine for themselves how reliable evidence is after hearing from victims.But the claim has been rejected by prosecution chiefs, who insist cases always go to court when there is enough evidence.The Jimmy Savile scandal and harrowing claims of historic abuse at the Fort Augustus Abbey boarding school in the Highlands have thrust the issue into the public spotlight in the past year.The MSPs, along with other expert members of the group, have voiced concerns over controversial Scottish Government plans to ditch the ancient principle of corroboration in Scots law, which requires evidence to come from two separate sources.They instead call for it to be reformed and more “circumstantial” evidence to be used as a second source, allowing a more “flexible” approach to cases which are taken to trial.“We would also like to see the Crown put far more cases of child sexual abuse before juries to let them judge the integrity of victims – adults or children – for themselves, rather than deciding that only a small minority of cases should come to court,” the cross-party group states in a submission to Holyrood’s justice committee.Child witnesses are already heard in many other cases involving serious crime, the group says, and special measures can be used to protect them in the witness box like a screen, video link or even a supporter, after recent changes in the law.“If child witnesses are properly supported and wish to go ahead they should be allowed to,” the MSP-led group adds.“In our view the Crown should therefore allow more cases to proceed to court allowing the judge/sheriff and jury to become more protagonist in determining the strength or weakness of particular evidential information.“This is a risky strategy, of course, but we think that, where the basic considerations for corroboration exist, then the court should be the place to determine. This is far more in the public interest than ‘no-proving’ cases where corroboration clearly exists but is not perhaps strong enough for a sure-fire conviction.”The group is led by Conservative Margaret Mitchell and includes influential Nationalist backbencher Kenneth Gibson, Holyrood deputy presiding officer Elaine Smith and Liberal Democrat justice spokeswoman Alison McInnes.It also includes experts from a range of bodies like Children 1st, Barnardo’s, Stop It Now and the Kingdom Abuse Survivor’s Project.But a spokesman for the Crown Office, which prosecutes criminal cases in Scotland, rejected claims that it isn’t doing enough.“It is incorrect to suggest that the Crown takes only a small minority of cases to court,” he said.“On the contrary, the Crown takes proceedings where there is sufficient admissible evidence.“The prosecution of sexual offences can be complex and challenging, and this can be made more so by the operation of the current requirement for corroboration.”Crimes often take place in private without any witnesses present and when cases are historic – including some committed decades earlier – it usually means there is no forensic evidence left to collect.But specialist prosecutors already identify corroborative evidence from a “wide variety of sources” which is presented in court as evidence, the spokesman added.“We support the Scottish Governments plans to abolish the requirement for corroboration which represents as a barrier to justice for a number of victims of sexual and domestic abuse crime.”PROMOTED STORIES

Scottish lawyer avoids investigation despite paedo allegations

Scottish lawyer avoids investigation despite paedo allegations

A TOP Scottish lawyer accused of being part of a VIP paedophile ring was branded a danger to children in court documents, yet no investigation was ever launched.

By Ben Borland PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, Aug 23, 2015

Robert Henderson QCNCRobert Henderson QC is alleged to have sexually abused his daughterRobert Henderson QC is alleged to have sexually abused his daughter, Susie, over a period of many years and also allowed her to be raped by his friend, Sir Nicholas Fairbairn.
Ms Henderson first reported her claims to the police in 2000 and then again last year, with detectives now investigating the pair as part of the wider probe into historic child abuse.
However, research by the Sunday Express reveals the authorities were made aware of suspicions about Henderson decades earlier in the wake of his divorce from his first wife, Olga.
It is the first contemporary evidence that has ever emerged to support Miss Henderson’s allegations against her father and his powerful friends.
A report prepared for a custody hearing before Lord Maxwell at the Court of Session in November 1976 states: “The pursuer [Olga Henderson] claimed that the defender was quite unsuitable as a custodian of [his eldest daughter] or any of the children in that he regularly drank to excess, that he was extremely sexually promiscuous, that he was involved in pornography, that he was generally ‘immoral’ and that he associated with people of a type who it was most undesirable should come into contact with the children of the marriage.
“In particular she alleged that [Miss X] who is in the defender’s house almost every day, is a well known Edinburgh prostitute. She also alleged that on at least one occasion in the past the defender had violently assaulted her in front of the children.”

I knew them a little after I called to the Bar in 1987, and I acted for one of the individual’s wives in a routine divorce Susan O’Brien QC

The Reporter adds that the allegations were supported by Mrs Henderson’s parents and by two family friends, “all of whom claimed they were not merely repeating what the pursuer had told them”.
In reply, Henderson claimed his ex-wife was “behaving somewhat hysterically”, adding that “even if he had been inclined to engage in such activities, which he never had been, he was certainly at present in no financial position to do so”.
The papers stored at the National Archives of Scotland also reveal a bitter and long-running legal dispute between Robert and Olga Henderson, who married in 1958.
After the divorce, he frequently failed to pay the aliment set by the courts and once emptied Miss Henderson’s National Savings account in order to buy his ex-wife a Morris Mini.
He kept the family mansion in the New Town while his ex-wife and three children shuffled around various temporary homes, on one occasion even having them evicted from a “dilapidated” flat he owned.
The papers state: “On September 12, 1979 the defendant called without warning at said flat, behaved in a threatening and aggressive manner towards the pursuer, smashed furniture and placed the pursuer and children in a state of fear and alarm.”
The documents even chart a worrying change in Miss Henderson’s personality, from a “bright, charming and intelligent child” at 10 to concerns over a “lack of attainment, lack of interest and frequent unexplained absences from school” four years later.

The 48-year-old, who now lives near Inverness, said last night: “Because there is an ongoing police investigation I don’t think it would be right for me to make any comment.”
However, friends have told the Scottish Sunday Express that she is “relieved and delighted” to discover that contemporary evidence exists to support her claims about her abusive father.
Police Scotland has also been made aware of our findings and it is understood that officers have already spoken to Miss Henderson about the new information.
The divorce papers further reveal that Henderson was visited at the family home by a private investigator who found him engaged in a tryst with a “girl” wearing only a negligee.
The investigator wrote: “Henderson said the girl had on one occasion previously stayed overnight at the house and it was their intention to stay overnight together that evening.
“The bedclothes were in disarray and it appeared to have been recently occupied. There were articles of female clothing lying about the room. This was identified as clothing belonging to the young lady in the house.”
Henderson was 38 years old at the time and the incident was used to support his wife’s application for divorce on grounds of adultery.
The custody battle was also settled in Mrs Henderson’s favour, although her ex-husband was allowed to remain in regular contact with his children.
However, despite their serious nature, Mrs Henderson’s extraordinary allegations were put down to the “personal bitterness” between the couple.
The report, by Angus JE Foster, concludes: “If the allegations made about the defendant and his girlfriend by the pursuer and others are true, Your Lordship’s Reporter would accept that they throw considerable doubt on the defendant’s suitability as a custodian.”
Despite the reporter’s findings, Henderson went on to take silk in 1982 and acted in some of the country’s biggest court cases.
He was also a key player in the ‘Magic Circle’ affair involving claims of a secret list of gay judges and other senior establishment figures.
The lawyer went into semi-retirement in 2001 and later lived in Dubai and France, where he died in December 2012.
The National Archives also holds records from Henderson’s divorce from his second wife, Carol Black, although they are not yet available to the public.
Susan O’Brien QC, the lawyer who will head the Scottish Government’s inquiry into historic child abuse, is understood to have acted as “junior counsel” in this case.
In her declaration of impartiality, she said: “You have asked me whether I knew two former members of the legal profession. I knew them a little after I called to the Bar in 1987, and I acted for one of the individual’s wives in a routine divorce.
“I doubt that my acquaintance as a young junior counsel with these individuals of another generation would place the inquiry at risk.”

link    I’m seeing tough talk from some who have strong interests in Scottish Independence. I want to know how far this talk will extend. Particularly sincewe now have cops with Glocks wandering around. Are the Masonic controllers of Scotland worried we might actually do something about Dunblane?

stolenkids-dunblane.blogspot.co.uk…

QVS was a perfect cover for institutional physical and sexual abuse, at first, orphan boys and, on and off, over decades QVS has supplied children(with sealed lips) for abuse, “Where the carcass is, there the eagles gather”. They were accessible to ‘eagles’ like top brass military,politicians, Police Officials, Sheriffs, Fiscals and successful business people in Perthshire, and fools like me could be squashed, swallowed up orsent to some island somewhere. They all gather at the water hole. Outrageous you say? There are similar stories from Wellbeck college and Duke ofYork, where names of the famous are well known associations including famous Statesmen. The link is masons, masters of secrecy and deception, which iswhere Hamilton comes in to the story, the weak link in the powerful chain of abusers. Here we have a perfect situation where boys, sworn to secrecyand parents under orders to keep quiet, helpless to complain. Hamilton was unbalanced and had power by knowledge. This is why he was allowed to haveguns. He was in on the secret and knew names of those other paedophilic members. If those names get out even now after 12 years there will be a riotand the press will have a field day! Lives and careers will be ruined! Is this why Hamilton’s file went missing only hours after the Killings? Isthis why Lord Cullen who I believe was a QVS Commissioner, was appointed to preside over the Hamilton investigations? This is how Masons operate, theycontrol everything and their allegiance is to each other. No wonder they want a 100-year embargo on the Hamilton case!

Scottish Independence means nothing if Dunblane isn’t sorted.

Looked for a suitable video, this is what I found, uploaded a few days ago by a YouTuber called Scottish Independence.

SCOTTISH CROWN OFFICE CLAIMS IT PROTECTS RAPE VICTIMS!

SCOTTISH CROWN OFFICE CLAIMS IT PROTECTS RAPE VICTIMS!

SCOTTISH CROWN OFFICE CLAIMS IT PROTECTS RAPE VICTIMS!

This is the staggeringly inaccurate remark attributed to the current Lord Advocate, Frank Mulholland QC, whilst discussing the issue of corroborative evidence The Scottish Law Reporter and others have challenged Mr Mulholland over this clear inconsistency in relation to its treatment of the Hollie Greig case.

The article can be accessed as follows:-

http://scottishlaw.blogspot.com/2013/11/selective-evidence-lord-advocate.html

In Hollie`s case, there were in fact no fewer than 29 potential corroborative witnesses, although not one of them was interviewed by the police following Hollie`s detailed account of September 2009, supported furthermore by extensive expert witness documentation. There would have been another corroborative witness, Hollie`s Uncle Roy (Robert Greig), had he not died mysteriously and suspiciously in a car fire shortly after walking in on Hollie being sexually assaulted by her father.

The astonishing and horrifying case of the poor Italian lady whose baby was ripped from her womb on the orders of Essex Social Services has shocked the nation, but has served to highlight what those of us who have had dealings with social services and the Family Court have known for years. Therein exists a terrible and heartless culture that has arisen as a result, primarily, of the secrecy that allows  cruel, venal and often greedy people to act with impunity.

We have experienced this type of conduct in Hollie`s case, initially when Hollie`s mother Anne was forcibly and unjustifiably dragged to a mental institution just days after Hollie had identified the members of the ring that abused her, which included two Aberdeen social workers.

Once the case was gaining public momentum, the two unfortunate ladies were persecuted yet again by Shropshire Social Services, who ransacked and vandalised their home on 3rd June 2010 without any justification whatsoever while the ladies were on holiday. This draconian action by Social Services was presumably taken in order to protect their abuser colleagues in Aberdeen from publicity by intimidating Anne and Hollie into silence.

Legal action was also taken to do so, with another example of the corruption that exists within the Family Division taking place on 1st July 2010. In another secret court, Mrs Justice Pauffley attempted to pervert the course of justice by trying to bully Anne Greig and me into entering the court without our chosen legal advisers, in contradiction to our equitable rights. We faced the judge down, despite her threats and she was forced to concede. The same judge appeared to lose control at a subsequent hearing on 14th June 2011, when she made a thoughtless and offensive remark directed at Hollie.

I formally complained about her conduct at the time and have now done so again to the head of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, who seems to be getting to grips with the scandal within the courts and has just intervened on behalf of the Italian lady and her baby. However, I learned a few days ago that Mrs Justice Pauffley has been promoted!

Thanks to all of you who sent kind messages to me following my interview with Sonia Poulton on TPV last Thursday. Good luck also to another interviewee, Sid Hingerty, who is currently walking across the Midlands on his way to London to highlight the government`s granting of de facto immunity from prosecution to influential serial sex offenders like Jimmy Savile and Cyril Smith. Never forget that it is not who you know, but what you know about who you know that counts in this country if you want to get away with committing serious crimes against children and the disabled.

Best wishes also to the new broadcasters of TPV and to UK Column Live, who have flown the flag for some time in highlighting cases that the government does not want the public to know about. I`m quite sure that we would have heard nothing even about the Italian lady if the Leveson oppressors had got their way in gagging the media.Posted by at 10:32 No comments:

SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE AND ALEC SALMONDS HOLLIE GREIG COVER UP

First Minister in missing records riddle over Hollie Greig abuse allegations
Share on facebookShare on twitterShare on emailShare on pinterest_shareMore Sharing Services0

The Scottish Government is refusing to disclose whether it has lost or destroyed communications records relating to the Hollie Greig case which may indicate when the First Minister Alex Salmond became aware of allegations of sexual abuse, which Ms Greig claims was carried out against her over many years whilst resident in the Aberdeen area.

Last month the Scottish Ministers were compelled by the Information Commissioner to address a series of questions put to the First Minister in correspondence in relation to the case in January this year, the first of which was: “When did you first become aware of the allegations made by Hollie Greig about her being abused by members of a high-ranking paedophile ring in Scotland?”

The commissioner required the Scottish Ministers to respond by today’s date or risk being held in contempt of court.

It was reported in April 2009 that Greig received a payout of £13,500 from the criminal injuries compensation authority, and was described by Detective Inspector Iain Allen of Grampian Police as “a truthful witness to the best of her ability and an entirely innocent victim.”

Two Grampian Police Officers interviewed Greig in September 2009. No charges have been brought against anyone in connection with sexual abuse.

The Scottish Ministers’ response to the question, issued by the First Minister’s Private Secretary Terry Kowal stated: “Following a search of our paper and electronic records, I have established we do not have a record of when the First Minister became aware of these allegations. Therefore, the information you require is not held by the Scottish Government.”

However, The Firm has seen correspondence from the Crown Office dated 23 July 2009 addressed to the Greig family’s lay representative Robert Green, which suggests that correspondence addressed to the First Minister outlining the allegations was received over two years ago.

“Thank you for your email of 20 June 2009 to the First Minister in which you raise concerns about the handling of the case involving allegations of abuse perpetrated against Hollie Greig,” the letter says.

The letter then says that Green’s inquiry was passed to the Crown Office for response, given the nature of the subject matter.

When pressed by The Firm to explain the apparent contradiction between the two positions, the First Minister’s office told The Firm today only that “we do not have a record of when the First Minister first became aware of these allegations”.

The First Minister’s office have acknowledged receipt of The Firm’s subsequent query asking whether the records had been destroyed, but have offered no direct response, despite repeated requests.

Russell Fallis of the Scottish Government communications team issued a statement to The Firm that said the First Minister’s office “receives a large volume of correspondence on a wide range of subjects, which is answered by that office or by relevant officials” , and added that the Government does not have “any indication that this information was recorded.”

Pressed to confirm whether the correspondence was destroyed or lost, the First Minister’s office has provided no response.

The correspondence questioning the First Minister was sent on 28 January and had received no response, despite a series of reminder letters. The Information Commissioner later ruled that the Scottish Ministers had failed to comply with their obligations under Sections 10(1) and 21(1) of the Freedom of Information Act.

This afternoon the Information Commissioner confirmed he is now considering whether “further action is required” against the Scottish Government in respect of their handling of the original correspondence containing the six queries.

In May, Andrew George MP wrote to Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland asking him to outline the options available to “those many people who remain concerned” about the “unsafe” investigations into the Hollie Greig case.

“There appears to be a lot of evidence and allegations which point in one direction and indicates that this whole case deserves a through review,” George wrote in constituency correspondence.

He adds that “many of the professionals with whom she came into contact…have allegedly failed in their duties or even covered up important facts.”

George was the second Westminster MP to raise concerns about the case, following David Ruffely MP’s intervention earlier this year.

Scots rally behind fight against child trafficking

Scots rally behind fight against child trafficking

Scots rally behind fight against child trafficking By Laura Piper on Friday 7 August 2015

  • Share

More than 2000 people have signed a petition calling upon the Scottish Government to provide vital support for trafficked children.

The online campaign was launched on Thursday by leading anti-trafficking organisations and within 24 hours thousands of Scots had signed up backing the call for the Scottish Government to strengthen the Human Trafficking and Exploitation (Scotland) Bill.
“More and more people are signing the petition and we’re very pleased to see that people are responding and care about the issues,” said Chloe Setter, head of policy, advocacy and campaigns at leading anti-trafficking and children’s rights organisation ECPAT UK.
“When it comes to children, who are the most vulnerable of all victims, it is right that Scotland should demand more support for them.”
  (© STV) via STV The wide-spread public campaign follows the third largest consultation on trafficking laws in Scottish history, with more than 50,000 people contributing to research last year.
In 2014, research found that children had been trafficked to Scotland and exploited in domestic servitude, forced labour and sexual exploitation, with some disappearing from care and re-trafficked to a life of further abuse.
Some trafficked children were found to have been prosecuted for crimes they were forced to commit, such as cannabis cultivation. Others had gone missing and were re-trafficked while many more endured years of continued abuse.
Now, ECPAT UK, Walk Free and CARE are asking justice secretary Michael Matheson MSP to amend the Bill to prioritise the needs of vulnerable children before the legislation returns to Parliament for the final time in early autumn.
via Twitter “The bill currently has guardianship for children trafficked from abroad but doesn’t cover all children, or Scottish children who are trafficked in Scotland,” explained Ms Setter.
“Scotland has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pass leading legislation on human trafficking, but it risks overlooking those who are most vulnerable – children.
“The Bill must be improved to ensure Scotland has the best protection possible for children at risk of exploitation, as well as the most robust criminal legislation to bring abusers to justice.
“We call upon the Scottish Government to recognise the plight of trafficked children and act to put them at the heart of this historic Bill.”

The Hollie Greig Hoax? HERE’S The REAL Truth About the Hollie Greig Case :: SCOTT WRITES TO CEOP

SCOTT WRITES TO CEOP


Dear sir/madam,
this is a follow up letter from the one which i was sent in your most recent email.
There are a number of facts that i wish to be considered due to their inacuracy.
These comments are as follows
-The claim that i used TOR
-My accusations not being met with a factual nature
-Claiming there are other investigations pending with no proof
-Claims of a investigation against mr dearman
-the afforementioned children in this case are infact in care of the state
-Accusations of sharing or possesing indecent images of children
-Accusations of illegally obtaining these images
-Accusations of trying to entrap people
These comments have to be retracted as i am not guilty of any of the above. I here by remove your right to slander my character in this fashion. If you had taken time and looked at my factual evidence then you could CLEARY see my screenshots are via tablet using the software (which i did buy from google play) called IP info Detective PRO. In making unfounded accusations in the way i used this software you also bring into disprepute Google and also the company which has made this software. This must stop now.
The screenshots that i have provided are software based and 100% factual. Stating anything else as i have previously stated puts the companies involved in disrepute. It has been stated in the high court in london that the case against mr dearman was never taken seriously or investigated by barnet police or the met. He was additionally portrayed as a victim of one big hoax. So no investigation has ever taken place until i obtained this evidence.
The two children at the heart of this case have been taken into care and thus the government has complete control of the situation. Are you thus implying they are not
capable of undertaking the safety of these children? The software i have used does not in any way take pictures as you have claimed. A simple fact finding mission before making these wild and untrue accusations would of stated that. Furthermore i find your unsigned threats outrageous and completely uncomfirmed. Having no signature on these threats shows me that your claims have absolutely no merit behind them. If this letter i was sent
was produced in a court of law it would be thrown out.
Your actions as law enforcement officers completely ashame myself and put your very actions into disrepute. How can a supposed law enforcement agency behave in a slanderous
manner towards myself as i am a vulnerable adult, with autism and also with physical disabilities. In my opinion you should be ashamed of your actions. As for reporting to my nearest police station (which is 8 miles away) I point black refuse to do so due to the pain
i go through whilst being mobile, as i suffer from arthritis. In saying this CS Sam salmond
apologized on my behalf when in a previous call to the met in london i was told to travel to my nearest station only to be met by two unhappy officers who stated “we have no jurisdiction to help you” Realistically i could of been charged with wasting police time and now find myself in this situation having to explain myself again. You have not taken my wellbeing into consideration.
I hereby give you 14 days to reply and for the second time of asking i still need a signed copy
of the letter i was sent
Regards
Scott Pattinson
