On Wednesday 24th February at around 11.15am, two Freemen on-the-land were falsely arrested, kidnapped and incarcerated by the Nottingham police from a house in Forest Fields, Nottingham..
Police arrived prior to the door of the house being jimmied and actually watched the whole incident, acting as aiders and abetters to unlawful access of the Freeman's sovereign place. No warrant was handed over .
The two Freemen had refused entry into their home to employees of e.on (strange as the actual power provider is Scottish Power}, the National Grid and a baliff from 'Scotcall'. Locksmiths from Eydens (a Coventry based company), flashed a bogus warrant to gain entry to install pre-pay meters which would collect weekly payment of alleged arrears.
Earlier today, it was also disclosed from Nottingham Magistrates Court that no warrant was even issued for entering the house.
During the unlawful arrest and kidnap a police officer attempted to pepper spray one of the Freemen, only to succeed in spraying himself, almost knocking himself out in the process.
During the unlawful incarceration both Freemen were denied water and basic rights throughout. The stress inducing method of sleep deprivation was also used against them. Misinformation and time wasting tactics were employed by the police to frustrate family and friends trying to ensure the Freemen's safety.
Presently, one of the men has been released and the other, refusing to engage into contract with the police, i.e give his name or sign papers, is still in unlawful police custody.
*****Update: Both Freemen have been bailed, charged with assaulting police officers. They will appear before Nottingham Magistrates Court on 9th March.
