Demonstration Against Judicial Corruption, Unlawful Imprisonments, Human Rights Abuses and Institutional Failures in the UK Every week outside HMP Wormwood Scrubs, Du Cane Road, London W12 0AE.

The judiciary of England & Wales is guilty of the most severe perversion of justice imaginable and have been aided and abetted by other Public Authorities, Media Organizations, Downing Street and several Members of Parliament.

In an attempt to cover-up the death and circumstances leading up to the death of a 14 month old baby, the judiciary have engaged in the criminal act of false imprisonment and attempts to section and silence the victim of their criminality.

Subjected to many years of abuse and violations of his rights guaranteed by law at the hands of the Metropolitan Police Force and the Judiciary, the father of the baby (Mr. Caul Grant) acting under duress and self defence (when all the abuse became too much) imported 45 Kilos of Cannabis into the UK, in hope he could bring the issues before twelve ordinary members of the public.

However, at his trial in December 2003, the trial judge, Judge Pratt deliberately misdirected the jury by telling them that Mr. Grant’s motives were completely irrelevant and that “there is no defence of justification in English law”. This is despite the fact that the Defence of Justification (Lawful Excuse) had been successfully used before in the UK by Greenpeace activist as far back as 1999.
More contradictory is the fact that in September 2008, at Maidstone Crown Court, the jury cleared six Greenpeace activist using the same defence of Justification again (See Micheal McCarthy, Enviornment Editor, Independent 11/09/2008).
Even more alarming, Judge Pratt further went on to tell the jury, that if they acquit Mr. Grant “no other court or jury could stop him or convict him of anything”.

Now Mr. Caul Grant, has remained unlawfully locked up in prison for over five years without having had the right of appeal against being wrongfully convicted for the importation of 45 Kilos of Cannabis.
He is now being detained for a further 18 months for not being able to pay a confiscation order in the sum of £85,000.00.

The judiciary has become judges in its own cause and therefore can not offer the necessary level of fairness, impartiality and independence for justice to be done. Until or unless issues of judicial lawbreaking and corruption are resolved and judicial integrity restored, beyond a reasonable doubt, all matters conducted before the judiciary of England and Wales, whether civil or criminal, will be unlawful, because a lawbreaker cannot be a law enforcer.

‘In a government of laws existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Government is the potent omnipresent teacher. For good or ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law. It invites every man to become a law unto himself. It invites anarchy’.
