You must see it to believe it:
- this antiquated system of heartless people behaving as in Kafka’s and Orwell’s writing – ‘just doing their job’ as ‘professionals’, while we are all unpaid, but passionate ‘amateurs’;
- this utter pretence and show at the expense of real [imprisoned] people whom they never see, let alone hear; in fact it is USUAL for prisoners NOT to be there for their appeals;
- the preference given to cover-ups of crimes than to real investigation, actual evidence and proper examinations – first in family courts and then in criminal courts – most eminently experienced by Maurice J Kirk BVSc who helped the Musas as McKenzie Friend big time.
Sir Brian Leveson, the President of the Queen’s Bench Division had been replaced by Lady Justice Macur DBE. HHJ Griffith-Jones was just sitting there, while Mrs Justice Thirlwall DBE read out what she and the other judges supposedly had read and deliberated: there was NOTHING to any of the grounds for appeal that Barrister Owusu had masterly drafted.
Supposedly, all the papers before the court HAD been read… Our six-page Witness Statement, however, was not taken into account. We are not part of the Club. But McKenzie Friends have become a ‘talking point’ in the Legal Services Consumer Panel!
