#SECRETTRIALS Special Advocates Disgrace Bar #UK

It's time for the Bar of England and Wales, to get some spine; and it's time anyone, three weeks from now, who is still a 'Special Advocate', got thrown out of the Bar of England and Wales; as a disgrace to the profession: for bringing it into disrepute, GLOBALLY. I would hope such professional misconduct hearings, should not be necessary, I would hope all special advocates would resign; leaving this TRAVESTY OF NAZI POLICY, where it belongs, incapable of being implemented, save by the NAZIS who pushed it through; WITHOUT A FIG LEAF OF FAIRNESS GIVEN TO IT BY THE BAR.

"Last week MPs revived the corpse of the 'Secret Justice' Bill. Here we spell out the full terrifying implications of life in... Secret Britain

Vote on Bill took place at same time as gay marriage vote
Bill could give power to cover-up details on events such as Hillsborough
Legal system would be weighted in favour of the powerful

While all attention at Westminster was focused on whether to allow gay marriage, this Coalition Government did something furtive – something that is not only much less liberal, but coldly terrifying.

Under the cover of the furore, it quietly disinterred the corpse of its ‘Secret Justice’ Bill. This Bill creates extraordinary new legal powers to keep official dealings hidden from us. It changes all the comforting certainties about the rule of law in Britain.

Most of us have some kind of grasp of what is officially called the Justice and Security Bill.

But it can be hard to imagine what it would actually mean in practice.

The Government wants us to think its scope is limited to rare and arcane disputes, perhaps born of foreign battlefields. Or ones that sound as if they belong in spy novels, involving CIA ‘black ops’ and ‘dark jails’. But if it becomes law, the effects will be felt much closer to home.

The shocking outcome of the recent Hillsborough Inquiry, bringing justice at last to 97 families? If similar circumstances were to arise again, it is likely that justice would never be delivered: if the families tried to sue, alleging a bungled police operation and a subsequent cover-up, the Bill would give the authorities the ability to keep the truth concealed.

Decider: Ulster Democratic Unionist Ian Paisley Jnr cast the critical vote on the revised draft of the Bill

A case brought against the Ministry of Defence by families of soldiers killed in a foreign deployment, alleging their loved ones’ equipment was defective? This is not mere hypothesis. Many argue now that the British death toll in Afghanistan has been higher than it should have been because some of our military vehicles were too vulnerable to roadside bombs.

With this law enshrined, the Government could insist on a closed, secret hearing. There, it could present evidence denying such claims. No one could challenge it, because no one directly affected by the case would ever know what it was.

Or take the very real, current scandal of the women green activists who unknowingly entered sexual relationships with undercover police officers.

Those defending such a case could be entitled to a secret hearing, at which they could claim that such tactics were entirely justified, on the basis that the women posed some kind of threat to national security.

This is the reality of a society regulated by secret justice: a legal system weighted irredeemably in favour of those in power. The legislation had previously been watered down considerably, and wisely, by the House of Lords. Now, it is not just as bad as it was when introduced last year. It’s even worse.

Under the resuscitated Bill, matters involving State security will usually be heard at secret ‘closed material procedure’ hearings. They will be attended only by security-vetted ‘special advocates’. Those involved in cases against official bodies will be permanently unable to know about the evidence deployed against them.

The new revised draft, the product of the final session of the Bill’s committee stage, was forced through by a majority of one. The Ulster Democratic Unionist Ian Paisley Jnr cast the critical vote.

This took place at precisely the same time as the same-sex marriage debate was happening in the main Commons chamber, which is why all this went virtually unnoticed.

Justice: Under the new powers information revealed by the recent Hillsborough inquiry could have remained concealed by the authorities

The consequences are draconian. The Government’s actions, prompted by intense lobbying from MI5 and MI6 security chiefs, mean there is now less than three weeks to stop the enactment of a ruthless measure that amounts to a charter for cover-ups.

A real recent example of a case that will be affected is that of Abdelhakim Belhadj. He is the Libyan opposition leader abducted with his family from Bangkok with the help of British intelligence, then tortured by Gaddafi’s brutal regime for years.

Like other victims of ‘extraordinary rendition’, Mr Belhadj, who has never been alleged to have committed a single hostile act against Britain, its citizens or its allies, is suing the UK Government. But the official evidence of what was done in our name will be deemed far too ‘sensitive’ to be aired in open court.

Once the Bill becomes law, his chances of success are remote. And the prospects for enforcing the merest whiff of accountability on the agencies responsible for torture cases, and, indeed, a vast range of official activity from national security to the country’s ‘economic wellbeing’, will be just as distant.

Safeguards: Conservative backbencher David Davies said it was 'appalling' that the Government reneged on its promise to allow full judicial discretion

Previously, the Lords had passed two crucial safeguards to stop this. The first said judges could grant the Government a secret hearing only if other alternatives had already been considered, like, for example, asking permission from the judge in a case to withhold sensitive evidence altogether, under the longstanding system of ‘public interest immunity’. The second Lords safeguard was more fundamental.

It stated that judges could allow a secret hearing only after balancing the Government’s demand for one against the historic legal principle that justice must always be open.

Last week, with the passage of Amendment 55, moved by the junior Justice Minister James Brokenshire, both these safeguards were swept away. ‘In practice, it will now be very difficult for a judge to resist a closed hearing,’ one legal analyst said yesterday.

Under this Bill, it is now possible a prisoner in a British jail who tried to challenge his detention in the courts would remain incarcerated without hearing the evidence against him.

The battle is not over. Pending is a High Court action by The Mail on Sunday which seeks to make public a secret judgment issued in an Afghan alleged torture case two years ago, which resulted from an earlier form of secret hearing, now deemed illegal by the Supreme Court.

As this newspaper has pointed out, the Bill will inevitably lead to a body of secret law and secret legal precedents."


We suggest anyone with assets or corporations in the United Kingdom, immediately flee the jurisdiction; the State is coming to STEAL EVERYTHING, including your right to even know what the evidence is against you, before you get JAILED POTENTIALLY FOR LIFE.

Of course, a criminal conviction can lead to ASSET SEIZURES; again, you'd never even know what the evidence was; and a SECRET PRECEDENT SYSTEM would be set up; the ANTITHESIS of EVERYTHING that ENGLISH LAW ever stood for.

A precursory to inevitable VIOLENT REVOLUTION.

For those that make peaceful change impossible, make violent revolution, inevitable.

This is the saddest day of my life.

And as to MI5 and MI6 being the people pushing for this; the entire nation of Britain needs to understand what's really going on here; of course, our sister site which explains that is currently (strange timing hey, BILDERBERG GOOGLE, downed at the moment, BY GOOGLE):  here's just one of the things they don't want you to see on that site, which should explaiin rather a lot:

Hello Brits; anyone awake out there?  Anyone understand what's happening WHEN BILDERBERG CHARITY HEAD KENNETH (cock fiddler?) CLARKE IS THE BILL PROMOTER? WAKEY WAKEY; WAKEY WAKEY!!!

Some might think the CRIMINAL WAY in which this Bill was put through committe, might JUST have somethng to do with this?

You have three weeks to save your country Bris; plain, simple.

"“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”  ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

UPDATE.  Yes, correct. Time the BRIT BAR got some SPINE and GOT JAILING WAR CRIMINALS!


Get extraditing them to Italy, as the political will seems to be interfering with the CPS's ability to think clearly, as it did, exactly all those years ago, with the FAILURE TO PROSECUTE SAVILE decision.

But no others ..
