corruption in other places?

It saddens one to think that corruption is like a disease, a welcome disease to many people in society, it has a habit of spreading to all regions such as Web ISP's, the BBC and other television networks, the water companies, banks etc.   This all contributes to the acceptance of corrupt cops and Lawyers and will indeed enable them to grow larger within this public acceptance of corruption ' because they are all at it, aren't they? a phrase one hears so many times.  The Government have proved this so in the recent ' expenses fiddle scandal' that rocked the foundations of this elite bunch.  It hasn't stopped their corruption or secrecy, they will adapt and carry on with a new design that they hope will not be detected so easily by the press or any whistleblower. Corruption is frequently denied yet exists in every country and there is no country or government free of it.   The freedom of information act arrived in 2005 and that is flawed by certain conditions that still prevent the public from having a right to know.  One hears the word ' transparency in Government ' -- FORGET IT.   IT'S NOT TRUE.       The only reason corruption flourishes is the public, they don't care, they don't mind, and they too indulge in it as we show here......

SEE OUR OTHER COUNTRIES SECTION FURTHER DOWN, SHOWING CORRUPTION AND ABUSE IN OVER 32 COUNTRIES -- Indonesia, Singapore, Pakistan etc,

Let us begin with some other major scams and obvious corruption.

FIRSTLY, THE TRUTH ABOUT CORRUPTION IS THAT IT IS NOT SOMETHING ABSTRACT OR A DISEASE, WHICH ACTS IN THE SAME WAY, BUT IT IS PEOPLE, ORDINARY PEOPLE, AND THEY TURN BECAUSE OF IT INTO THE MONSTERS THAT USE IT FOR POWER AND GAIN.  IT COMES IN MANY GUISES. CORRUPTION DOES NOT JUST HAPPEN AS YOU ARE LED TO BELIEVE, IT IS THERE RIGHT FROM THE START.  A PERSON OR COMPANY MAY NOT SHOW THIS UNTIL IT BECOMES IRRESISTIBLE AND A WAY TO GAIN WITHOUT PLAYING FAIR, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN THEIR NATURE TO DECEIVE, TAKE, AND BEHAVE DISHONESTLY....IT CAN BE JUST A FOB OFF, SOMEONE OR GROUP WHO WON'T ALLOW AN INVESTIGATION, SOMEONE WHO TELLS YOU TO STOP FILMING OR YOU WILL BE ARRESTED, ALL THESE SHOW THAT THERE IS SOMETHING THEY WISH TO HIDE......SO LONG AS THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH  OR COVER IT UP!  THE CORRUPTION SPREADS UNTIL MANY ARE IN IT AND THEY CANNOT AFFORD TO LET THE TRUTH OUT.................... And as you will observe in the world of business the penalties don't fit the crime......these guys in business can buy their way out, and frequently do....even in the courts where justice can be manipulated!

'Prison Drug Problem Exposed by Whistleblower '

PASSING THE BUCK, TYING THE GOVERNOR'S HANDS, that's what has led to the abuse of drugs in prisons according to an insider who worked as a Governor in the Prison system from 1993 to 1999.  He puts the blame squarely with the Chief Inspectors who 'made a significant contribution to facilitating drug trafficking in prisons'  The Inspectorate continually criticised and undermined attempts by Prison Governors to restrict drug trafficking, especially through domestic visiting areas.  Inspectors did not approve of stringent checks as they thought it might damage 'meaningful family relationships' which made things more easier for the drugs to pass and the Governor unable to interfere.  They actively, through recommendations and policy changes, left a legacy of disabling staff who were keen to restrict and cut down the drugs being brought into prison. The complacency they now talk about, is the complacency they created because effective measures had no support from them.

Gone unknown and unpunished, probably like many others in the British Prison system, a male prisoner as a teenager, told of his tale that while serving a prison sentence which happened many years ago, was raped by other inmates, and couldn't tell of it because he was expected to be a 'hard man' now initiated into prison life where one could stand up to anything.  He said as a teenager he was jailed for dealing in drugs, and now at 51, he still feels the shame of this incident that changed his life, an incident he wasn't sentenced to or expected in a prison.  He said even though he tried to live normally after leaving prison, and attempted to forget it, it was to eventually cost him his marriage and his lovely home he'd fought to buy honestly.  He says he knew all along he was pushing her away along with others, but it won't go away and feels he can't cope much longer!   (the man wished to be anonymous sadly)   July 2021

TORTURE BY BRITISH TROOPS INQUIRY HITS WALL OF SECRECY - Investigators trying to find out how much involvement Britain had in torturing suspects held, came to an abrupt stop as the inquiry team realised they were being 'stonewalled' and less than the truth was being offered. Questions were being sidestepped and others being half-answered. When certain points were being pushed, the soldiers and their command were opting to hide behind ' secrecy' and whitewash invented by nations and governments to gain immunity and claim that they were not required to answer in the guise of National Security, whilst claiming at the same time ' we've got nothing to hide '  --- what a joke, pull the other one.

UK TROOP ABUSES IN IRAQ -- Hot on the trail of the above we have yet another call for an inquiry taking place at The High Court in London (Jan 2013), Lawyer Philip Shiner is representing around 200 civilians who are accusing British Soldiers of 'terrifying Acts of Brutality'.  He says that British interrogators were guilty of unlawful killings as well as torture.  People were handcuffed, blindfolded and heavily beaten before being taken into detention.  Barrister Michael Fordham QC has said that the Royal Navy played 'a significant role in the interrogations'  He also went on to say it was not enough to say there were 'rotten apples and then keep the lid firmly shut' .....quotes of 'a few rotten apples' is generally used in most circumstances....but we here can show that doesn't really hold water if you glance around the files and pages....it often goes far beyond a 'few'.....and it emerged that the MoD had already settled or just finalizing compensation for 249 claimants at a cost of £16.2 million.  The father of an Iraq teenager has accused British soldiers of torturing his son. Mizal Karim said he found marks he did not expect and his son's jaw dislocated, his arm broken and many bruises and the evidence of him being shot in the right foot.                                                              

NB: Blogs and replies are hotly denying that troops could do that........but most of these are from ex-troops!

BRITISH SOLDIER IN KENYA SHOOTING IS HELD -- DIPLOMATIC ROW NOW ENSUES:  An Army Sergeant who was involved in a fatal shooting of a Kenyan citizen has been detained for several months since the killing, and this has now led to a row between embassies and the Foreign Office.

'Military Prison Guard carries out sexual attacks on female warders '

ARMY SERGEANT RONNIE THOM appeared in court facing eight charges of sexual assault against three female guards. It was said in court that he boasted about taking part in threesome sex, and that he had innappropriate relations with a woman prisoner.  It all happened at the Military Corrective Training Centre in Colchester, Britain's only Military Jail.  The offences date back to 2009 and 2010 when Sergeant Thom was a member of the Military Provost Guard Service in the position of non-commissioned officer.

ACCOUNTABILITY is not something the British Army are comfortable with, especially when you start to make inquiries about army personnel wrong-doing. They actually go out of their way to prohibit snooping into their records and say they are exempt from private and public enquiries unless ordered to do so by the MOD, and they confidently sneer and reply that they have ways of influencing that sort of action.  All in all, we found that soldiers rely on this to get them out of trouble (one we spoke to said 'it was a family thing' and regarded the public as ignorant claiming soldiers were special) and often cling to the belief that it will be hushed up and dealt with behind closed doors --- unfortunately they are right in almost 99 percent of cases...so what we reveal is a tiny part of a fraction....but we will continue to dig behind the scenes and get some results for publication.

'The Army High Command prevent Public Examination'

THE RAF and ROYAL NAVY responded in the same way and had similar protections and firewalls in place!

' The Army, Police and MI5 in 'imposed nightmare on female Army Captain '

THE BREAK-IN, MI5 OPPRESSION, AND M.O.D -- Carole Maychell was a Captain in the Army.  She was accused of having stolen Army property.  While she was being questioned by MI5 Officers, three in all, the Lancashire Police were breaking into her semi-detached home in Heysham, near Morecambe.  She had actually refused to sign a form permitting the search, but they went ahead having been given the go-ahead by The Army.  She was never cautioned or informed of her rights, nor charged with theft.  For three days she was interrogated.  Before Official proceedings began under the Official Secrets Act, the consent of the Attorney General is needed....it had not been given.  The High Court judges disapproved of the Army's treatment of Carole, and the conduct of her Commanding Officer....they felt they were being pressured to go along with things which verged on the absurd.  To make things worse she was kept on remand at the prison in Colchester.  They continually blocked any requests from her solicitor Mr Porter who had a wide experience of Military Law.  ' They always had us going around in circles' he said, 'it seemed as if the C.O was an all-powerful figure, and he rejected everything out of hand'    Eventually, they dropped all charges after four months.  Carole suffered trauma and anxiety, and did not even get an apology for what they did.  'The Army don't want to be seen to be giving in or losing, so they just pretend it was all routine ' ...... Carole decided to sue the Army for compensation for wrongful imprisonment, and when that matter is concluded she is considering emigration.  She says ' She cannot forget that it was her own people who did this to her'

' The Scandal of the Army Generals '

AS WE CONTINUALLY SAY, CORRUPTION IS NEVER FAR AWAY -- We now have Army Generals caught in a sting and on camera too -- Retired Army Generals have been filmed in discussions of how to set up huge arms deals using their influence for cash!  Yes, it sounds very similar to the Politicians.....Admiral Sir Trevor Sour, Lieutenant- General Sir John Kiszely, Chief General Lord Dannatt and General Sir Mike Jackson all of whom boasted they could arrange and influence deals (for a £100,000 fee for two days work a month).  Six ex-senior officers were secretly filmed by undercover reporters...some said they could get around the rules and had access to the Ministers...all said they'd done no wrong!

Inequalities? there are many and its often the ones at the top of the ladder that benefit while those under suffer the cuts.....

' Marine admits to lying to Police when interrogated '

An 'Un-named' Royal Marines Sergeant at his Court Martial admitted that he had lied to police when giving a statement because he thought his actions might have been misunderstood?  The Royal Marine appeared in court with two others charged with the murder of a suspect in Afghanistan....he said he foolishly shot a dead person!  In court the three are referred to a Marine A, B and C,   Furthermore the Sergeant only 'assumed the man was dead'   The trial at a Military Court in Bulford, Wiltshire continues.

THE CASE ABOVE has turned into a silly one with pleas for clemency as one marine has been convicted of murder while the others 'got off' despite being involved in a cover-up as tapes offered up in evidence shows that the 'shooter' asks the others to keep quiet about it.  The Defence Secretary has naturally turned down any call for special leniency....just because he was a soldier....other silly polls conducted by the media have shown the public at there silliest as they use words like 'he was in a war protecting British Interests' etc, therefore he ought to be given a lighter sentence?   As one person said, it was murder and the marine knew it at the time.

The Sergeant has been named as Sgt Alexander Blackman.

'Suicide and Bullying Case rattles Army Secrecy'

ACCUSATIONS OF A COVER-UP do not go away as the family of the dead Corporal get few answers and experience stone-walling by the MoD.  The Military Police Officer Anne-Marie Ellement said she had been raped by two soldiers before taking her own life....but no one seemed to bother.  She made complaints that a campaign of intimidation and isolation had been mounted after reporting the rape in 2009...and the army declined to bring charges against the two soldiers.  New evidence suddenly appearing was brushed aside by the Mod saying that the omission of the material had been accidental?....two years later!  Their brief one Nicholas Moss claimed this didn't amount to a cover-up!    Considering how meticulous the Army are, what does he call it?

'Boozy soldiers walk free after stamping on man's head 18 times '

A COURT found it in their wisdom? to free two Guardsmen who were photographed stamping on the victim's head eighteen times while he lay on the ground.  SCOTS GUARD SHAUN SMITH and Welsh GUARD JASON COLLINS walked free from the court in Teeside after inflicting a terrible and callous beating on an helpless civilian.  They are both said to be held in high regard by the army! who seem to put the behaviour down to the influence of heavy drinking.  The Judge at the civil trial said 'he was taking an extraordinary decision' in the light of how serious the case was, and hoped the army would do the right thing'......this was after the army lawyer had come to court to show glowing testimonials on both men, and said they were keeping the pair in the army!  All the Judge could do was order Smith to do community work for 80 hours unpaid and gave Collins a 12 month suspended jail sentence.... both were ordered to pay compensation of a £1,000 each.

'Coroner rejects Army's account of events'

THE NORTHERN IRELAND ATTORNEY GENERAL finds British Regiment defence cannot convince coroner over the killing of a teenage boy during the 1972 Londonderry incident.  He came to the conclusion the boy was not posing a threat to any soldier when the opened fire and killed Seamus Bradley 19.  The teenager was killed during 'Operation Motorman' when a soldier from the Royal Scots Regiment shot him.  The coroner said the Army claimed the boy climbed a tree 'armed with a machine gun' but this proved not to be so when other military personnel said a soldier who got out of a Saracen Armoured vehicle dropped to one knee and fired at the teenager, killing him!  It was eye witness evidence from another source Mr Raymond Carton who saw the whole incident from his living room window particularly persuasive. He was satisfied that the teenager was shot by a soldier, and was sad that they had 'not been able to confirm the soldier's identity'    (16/8/2019)

'The war crimes, British Soldiers, The Black Watch, MoD and Government'

Quite a line up you may say, 'GOVERNMENT AND MOD ACCUSED OF COVERING UP WAR CRIMES' a subject one is not allowed to associate with the British, yet with anyone else....yes. In the name of the people, British Power has been at the centre of all this 'grandstanding' by the UK who continually step over into the basket marked 'terrorism' and engage in rendition, covert operations and human rights abuses at any time they choose....which is always denied of course, that's the true British way in just about everything from civil to military engagements.  And this will be the case for many years to come as it was in the distant and not so distant past.  Owning up to atrocities is not a British thing, but condemning others for doing exactly the same thing is more like it!.......we are looking at Afghanistan and Iraq here, just two areas that paint a bleak picture of dishonesty over truth and the MoD.  Firstly we will deal with the BBC Panorama Programme 'War Crimes Scandal Exposed' which was broadcast  on 18/11/2019.  It was notable that at every turn and juncture the government and MoD denied everything despite the fact that some soldiers did give evidence to investigators IHAT, and that UK detectives were prevented from prosecuting soldiers suspected of serious war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.  One comment made by one detective in the programme said 'The MoD had no intention of prosecuting any soldier no matter what rank'    The programme also revealed that cases put to the investigators have not been investigated according to the Iraq detectives involved in following up incidents of UK killings and acts of a barbaric nature.                           There were leaked documents allegedly containing evidence implicating troops in the killing of children, the torture of civilians and sexual abuse....the latter being mentioned in other situations when troops were at war on the battlefield, something we accept but strangely as it's the UK, it couldn't happen?  the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT), have devoted a huge effort in uncovering the truth about war crimes by British soldiers in Iraq and Operation Northmoor......and the UK government closed both down in 2017.   The government never wanted you to see the evidence or get a chance to debunk it, which speaks volumes.  3 boys were cornered in a room and were shot in the head by Special Forces in 2012, they were aged from 11 to 14.  Soldiers rounded up a family, their hands were in the air and killed in front of the watching mother.  Chris Green retired Major, believes there was a cover up especially as no inquiry was launched.  It is stated that cover ups go back some 16 years at the point of the invasion into Iraq 2003.  The shooting of an Iraq police officer in 2003 could not be easily pushed aside even though the MoD tried as best they could.  And strangely, there was no investigation by the military police.  The soldiers accounts conflicted and the shooter never identified.  80 soldiers gave evidence to the Tribunal which found the reports inaccurate, and the suggestion that the policeman pulled his gun first was a lie.  It was also said a Major Franklin was involved in the cover ups...but again he walked away.  Left tenant Colonel Nicholas Mercer warned soldiers to observe the law and rules of engagement.  We also hear of Camp Stephen, an unofficial prison?  The major force attached to the appalling acts were the Scottish Black Watch.  It was stated that they grabbed a taxi driver who was later found dead.  Again, the write up notes were inaccurate? (almost a re-occurring pattern).....the taxi driver's body had been taken to the morgue, yet the family were deliberately misled when they were redirected to looking into the hospitals, and the MoD will not let the identity of the officer be known, and they took out a court order to prevent access.  A school teacher was mistakenly identified and soldiers of the Black Watch arrested him, and he died.  On examination they found boot prints on his body.  Other men were beaten, tied and kicked....there was routine abuse at Camp Stephen.  4 boys were killed and reports falsified, the officer who killed them was not identified, and the MoD ended any line of enquiry.  Cases were shut down against the wishes of the investigators along with the need to look into suspicious killings at Northmoor.  It is said that night raids were carried out by US, Australian, New Zealand, Uk and Canadian soldiers.  There is nothing 'Open' about this, yet the government refuse to let anyone probe it.....so much for transparency and open government, or the truth?

'Two Grenadier Guards in armed robberies'

Two grenadier guards and a pal carried out robberies on convenience shops the court was told.  SOLDIERS KRISTOPHER JAMES=MERRILL. DILLON SHARPE, and pal Marlon Wright appeared before Kingston Crown Court.  Both soldiers carried out the planning and cased targets before putting on black masks and raiding shops.

UPDATE: All three were found guilty and sentenced to five years in jail each.

'On-the-run Paratrooper is jailed'

EX PARATROOPER GUY BROOKE fled the UK after a litigation funding firm gave him £1 million, launched legal proceedings against him.  It appears that Brooke ended up in a row over a failed telecoms business. It was said that the firm collapsed in 2013 and as a result entered into a legal wrangle and utter mess over money, and he fled when things didn't go his way.  At the High Court he was jailed for 21 months for contempt of court because he didn't turn up for the hearing.

'Ten soldiers of the Royal Horse Artillery are kicked out of army'

In what has been described as a barracks bash with cocaine and cannabis in the mix, 10 soldiers have been dismissed from the service in a no-nonsense approach to drugs in the army it was said.  The report noted that two of the ten troops were women.  It says that the party bash was being held at the Albemarle barracks near Newcastle.  The Commanding Officer Lieutenant Colonel Simon Harris was congratulated for his decision and stand when he put them on parade after partying all night and ended their careers for holding an illegal party and being high on drugs.      (30/1/2021)

'Major accused of deception'

Major Lloyd Hamilton was accused of defrauding the Army out of £40,000  pounds after claiming an educational allowance so he could send his two children to boarding school.  Prosecutors said that this was conditional on his wife living with him, but found out that there had been a marriage breakdown, and furthermore discovered she had helped him in this by visiting him in Cyprus several times to give the impression that all was fine and that they were living together.  The trial continues.      (2/2/2021)

'Soldier in boozy incident requests leniency'

Soldier Paul Waddington asked the court to not jail him as this would probably see him being thrown out of the army when he appeared before Minshull Crown Court in Manchester charged with grievous Bodily Harm and Dangerous Driving.  It was said that the soldier in a row with his girl after consuming too much booze, drove off with her on the bonnet, braked, and catapulted her into the air causing her injuries.  The court gave him a 12 month community order with 160 hours of unpaid work.   (10/2/2021)

'General fears social network attacks on the UK'

It was reported that General Sir Patrick Sanders is fearing for Britain's reputation in that it can be damaged by frequent attacks that undermine and 'tear the fabric of society apart' on social media platforms( and possible websites like this one) that creates discord in the UK.  Being the Commander of the UK's Strategic Command, he went on to say that 'our adversaries exploit the tools that are meant to make a utopian society, like social media against the UK....and sowing division.'  He eludes to 'states' creating these attacks, but fails to realise that the UK Utopia is false, and that British society is tainted and flawed.....as can be seen on this site....and that he should look to his own past first and see what hides there before assuming the 'rosy image' he imagines and the behaviour of the Army over the years, all mentioned here on this site, not imagined, and those atrocities hidden and and acted out in the colonies by the British...along with government collusion, and acts that have been whitewashed in the history books to avoid the truth....because that is his real enemy, what Britain did and still does by selling arms to countries to help some continue wars, playing both sides for gain, and invoking immunity for nasty incidents they want to cover up which has been done many times....altering the image and twisting the facts to suit this false utopia that feeds on propaganda.     (8/2/2021)

'Two Army Sergeants face dismissal'

TWO SERGEANTS FROM THE COLDSTREAM GUARDS were caught in a disciplinary crackdown at the barracks in Windsor.  The report says that on being tested they proved positive for taking cocaine, and mentions them as being Sergeant Carl Mortimer and Lance Sergeant ? and just goes onto say they were officers who were supposed to set an example to the junior ranks.  And by way of additional information it mentions that the first Sikh guardsman, Charanpreet Singh Lall was also caught in 2018 taking cocaine.  Strangely, and slightly contrary to the title of the piece, it say that they were both given their marching orders by commanding officer, Lt. Col. David Marsham.  (13/2/2021)

'Trainee officer is dismissed from army'

A trainee officer appeared before Bulford Military Court in Wiltshire charged with disgraceful conduct of an indecent kind says the report, for which he was found guilty and booted out of the army.  Trainee Army Officer, Hector Orrell, 21, was court-martialled for what is said, hiding in a fellow cadet's room several times hoping to see the un-named colleague coming out of the shower naked at Sandhurst Military Academy.  At the hearing it was also stated that this wasn't the first time, and that at the age of 19 he had received a warning about his conduct from his superiors.  The trainee officer from Guildford was dismissed and instructed to pay each victim £750 compensation.    (16/2/2021)

'Former soldier kills family because of drink-driving'

Former soldier, David Logan, was described in court as a prolific drink-driver by the Judge at Preston Crown Court who jailed him for a period of 11 years.  Mr Justice Hillard said that Logan knew he was putting the safety of others at risk, but dismissed this when he decided to go for a drink.  It was said that when the police arrived at the scene Mr Logan was twice over the limit when they arrested him.  He killed a young father, his son, daughter and their pet dog Troy.  In addition it was stated that Logan had six previous drink-drive convictions.  He admitted to three counts of causing death by dangerous driving.  He said he 'blacked out at the wheel'     (20/4/2021)

'Soldier kicked out of Army for selling gear on eBay'

'Soldier tries to con Army over compensation claim'

It was reported that former soldier, Brian Muyepa is currently suing the MoD for around £3.7 million pounds after he informed them he had developed 'trench foot' during exercises and left in wet boots for five hours when he was on training exercises in 2016.   He reported that this left him in 'crippling pain' and was later discharged in 2018.  The MoD have admitted negligence the report says, but they now contest the claim and say that he has overstated and exaggerated the claim which is now going before the High Court.  They say they have managed to secure a video which shows the claimant dancing at a barbecue and are accusing him of perpetrating a scam.     (13/5/2021)

'Two former soldiers in extortion plan'

'Military Cover-Up over rapes and sex abuse'

Not surprisingly, a report has emerged accusing the Military Command of covering up sexual abuse cases and rape incidents within the armed services, which was initiated in order to protect their careers.  The Inquiry led by MP Chairwoman, Sarah Atherton, said that over half of women in the Services suffered 'bullying' and 'shameful discrimination' by male comrades, and that assault was high on the list of these hidden incidents which did not see the light of day or get reported, because 'someone upstairs wanted it to disappear' --  She said there were calls for these incidents to be tried in civilian courts because military courts were four times less likely to try and convict a male officer and serviceman.  It says that the report took statements from around 4.200 women serving in the Forces.  One officer who came forward, Wing Commander, Graham House, said he was called on to cover up a rape claim and was told by the 'brass' that it was not only inconvenient but just an allegation' -- but going against this he charged the RAF instructor and he was jailed for sexual assault' -- In response to the document the Defence Minister, Baroness Goldie, has 'vowed' to make improvements?       (25/7/2021)

'MoD pays out £85 million in settlements'

COMPENSATION PAYOUTS have reached £85 million pounds by the Ministry of Defence the report says, and that is to 'Army Personnel' who have made claims for damages against the armed services.  It primarily cites cases of hearing loss because of soldiers time in the forces.  A lawyer who represented some 4000 clients who work in the services said that young men and women in their 20's have been forced out of their jobs because of hearing damage.       (6/8/2021)

'Soldier attacks another soldier'

The report says that Army Drummer, Matthew Barlow attacked Corporal Craig Hodson with an axe after having a 'drunken row', and that other soldiers on seeing this tried to stop Matthew Barlow from hitting the other man's head with the axe, and wrestled him to the floor.  Hodson suffered a wound to his thigh it was said which required ten stitches.  Bulford Military Court heard that this was caused by an incident on exercise with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.  Military Police Officers arrested him and the court sentenced Barlow to a prison sentence of five years after he admitted to a charge of wounding.   (14/8/2021)

'Drunk soldier in hit and run'

Former Soldier, Darren Bowers, previously served 23 years in the Army, received a three year prison sentence after he left a victim seriously injured at an accident scene in Perranwell in Cornwall in December 2020.  It was said that Bowers was three times over the drink-drive limit and caused injury by dangerous driving.  The Truro Crown Court additionally heard that instead of trying to help the victim, he fled the scene in order to avoid capture and conviction.     (14/8/2021)

'Corruption in the Armed services is ignored'

The subject of corruption is little talked about or even admitted by the MoD, simply because it is unwise and dangerous to the moral and reputation of forces that have had several hits against it recently, and the many historic scandals that have involved the British Army, Navy and Air Force.  The image is warped and this is due to the top brass and ministers who shout loudly if anyone challenges them or accuses 'their boys' of crimes while acting for the British Government and State, and there is often a misguided belief that even when the Army comes into question, that they should be immune in every respect, no matter what the crime or level of corruption is perpetrated.

'Royal Marines rapped over safety issues'

THE MILITARY WATCHDOG has ordered the Royal Marines to update and improve their training safety methods after the recent death of a young recruit the report says.  20 year old rookie Ethan Jones of Somerset died when on an exercise in Cornwall in 2020.  It was said that he drowned because he was submerged underwater for a period of five minutes.  The Defence Safety Authority said that he wasn't monitored enough and it should have been assessed before carrying out the exercise.    (16/8/2021)

'Ministry of Defence offer military chief post to candidates with no experience'

This report amazed many when the Government went looking to fill the Military Post of Director of Analysis to applicants 'with no defence experience needed'  for the lucrative earnings of £115,000 per annum.  It says that the job entails liaising with heads of armed forces, and that they will if selected, be a key member of the Head Office Senior Leadership Team bringing multi-disciplinary insight to the Defence Board, at the heart of the MoD.

'Soldier sentenced for cop assault'

FORMER SOLDIER Ant Middleton said that when he was being tried for assaulting two police officers in 2013, after leaving the Army his solicitor told him that he'd get off with a slap on the wrist if he claimed he had been suffering PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), 'all you have to do is fake it' advised the lawyer.  But Middleton decided this wasn't right and decided to serve his time, he served four months of a 13 month sentence.

'Two Troopers in Assault Case'

TWO SOLDIERS of The Household Cavalry faced trial at Bulford Military Court in Wiltshire.  It was heard that trooper Nicholls and trooper Coutts attacked a Muslim colleague after having a boozy night out at Cambermere Barracks.  It was said they made racial comments about his religion, which resulted in Nicholls assaulting the soldier, Azzan Aziz-Sheikh.  Both troopers faced charges of battery and racism, but the race charge was dropped on Nicholls who just faces the assault charge...the trial continues.     (23/9/2021)

'Sex attack crimes by troops conviction rate 15%'

THE MoD came in for heavy fire yet again as it was revealed that only 15 per cent of sexual allegation cases against troops reported for such crimes were convicted.  Quite a number of those troops were allowed to carry on serving because the bosses decided the crime was 'less serious'... a reported MoD report on sexual offences in the Service Justice System revealed that 600 investigations into rape and sex assault allegations since 2016, that only 98 troops were convicted by a military court.  Observers accused the Mod of being selective and secretive, and was said to be run by a toxic group of privately educated white Senior Officers.   (24/102021)

'MoD accused of Cover-Up'

The case of the killing of a Kenyan woman by a British soldier and buried near a British Army base would have gone un-noticed unless a soldier who spoke to a reporter hadn't confessed the murder to comrades, who then reported it to Senior Officers....but this wasn't the end of it, because they in turn took no action over this matter or confession?  The Shadow Defence Secretary John Healey was shocked to discover there had been no official MoD-led investigation into the death of sex worker Ms Wanjiru whose body was found or the soldiers involved and no inquiry into why the MoD failed to respond when the Kenyan detectives and police asked them for help.  He says he now wants to take this matter forward and launch an inquiry into a possible cover-up.'   (26/10/2021)

' MOD is being sued for negligence '

THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE is being sued by the family of a military policeman who was murdered by a crowd in Iraq.  Corporal Russell Aston was one of five military policeman killed by a crowd.  The Family of Russell Aston are claiming that the MOD failed to keep him and his comrades safe or take reasonable measures.  The claim alleges that the government breached article 2 o0f the ECHR after a recent Supreme Court ruling extended the reach of The European Convention on Human Rights.  The Ministry of Defence originally claimed immunity in combat situations and 'theatres of war' incidents, which was an available defence against claims for damages, they were not prepared to comment.

MOD'S SPENDING ON DIRECTORY INQUIRIES REACHES £271,000........in August the news broke that kept calling the 'speaking clock' to get the time at a cost of £40,000 to the taxpayer......the MOD made 158,640 calls.

FORMER MoD MAN IN REVENGE CASE AGAINST THE STATE --- The report says that Simon Finch worked on highly classified work with missile systems according to what the MoD is prepared to say.  It said he wrote down 'secret information' and posted it to nine addresses in 2018 after twenty years of service.....but more was revealed that poses questions against the ones he worked for, in that he complained in his letters etc to those he mailed, about 'police mistreatment' the NHS and his bosses.  It was claimed at the Old Bailey that he passed on details to foreign governments who were hostile....and that he admitted breaching the official secrets act etc, and is now facing a period in jail.  But, there is obviously more to this than what the State would have you know, because games are a routine to them, just as is covert operations and secrecy.....the State is quite deadly when it comes to National Security, and nothing is off the table, and that includes torture, isolation, and in some cases they disappear.  Every country does it.  And they deny it.      (10/11/2020)

Update: MoD man is jailed for four and a half years.....Mr Finch said he had to bring things to the attention of the public!

A REPORT BY THE MOD SAID THAT EIGHT MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES HAD BEEN CONVICTED OF WAR CRIMES SINCE 2000.

 

WE NOW GO ON TO LOOK AT OTHER COUNTRIES WHO INDULGE IN CORRUPTION, POLITICAL MISCHIEF, ABUSE AND MALADMINISTRATION

These are:  USA, MEXICO, SPAIN, SAUDI ARABIA, EGYPT, TURKEY, ISRAEL, AFGHANISTAN, MALAYSIA, INDIA, BANGLADESH, GREECE, SYRIA, SINGAPORE, AFRICA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, THAILAND, BRAZIL, PAKISTAN, IRAN, INDONESIA, NEW ZEALAND, SOUTH KOREA, NORTH KOREA, RUSSIA, ITALY, FRANCE, MALTA, IRELAND, JAPAN, CHINA and more.

Some of these are holiday destinations built on careful propaganda, but what you'll see and read will not be pretty or nice at all.................

 

' U.S.A. Corruption and bent cops are still a problem '

OUR COLLEAGUES who run sites on the web featuring crooked cops in different states throughout America tell us that clean up measures are in the main a whitewash and government agencies throughout the USA are in effect -- ignoring the corruption or actively engaging in it.  It is a fact that bribery is the main tool in the states when it comes to the birth of police corruption and being a society based on wealth and the desire for it, it is no surprise that the U.S. has a very big police corruption problem.  We have recently mentioned a raid that exposed widespread corruption in cities of the U.S. and we know there are growing suspicions that government administration is not without its own corruption in the F.B.I. and C.I.A.  The D.E.A. cops have been known to operate on behalf of the drug barons for considerable bribes in recent years.  Denials mean nothing but that is what they come up with every time.

THE US GOVERNMENT KNOW IF THEY GO AFTER POLICE CORRUPTION 'THOROUGHLY' THEY WILL BE COMPROMISED, AND IN MANY CASES BE GOING AFTER THEMSELVES........and that would be a political disaster that probably bring the government down.

HUNDREDS OF U.S. BENT COPS LITTER THE INTERNET WEB PAGES they actually outdo the British cops. If one had the time it would probably go well into the thousands to download and file each story and page.

THE USA POLICE SCANDAL -- It is utterly amazing to find that when you type 'Cops harass or  Intimidate' you instantly get page after page of such incidents involving every state throughout the US plus victims of police brutality on You Tube videos......some have been arrested and their rights abused for taking film of police, and have later sued the Police Departments and Officers.....but what comes across of a more disturbing nature is the attitude of the Police and how they don't care about their behaviour at all.....many cops are on Web pages for robbery, fraud, intimidation, abuse and much more......but it never stops this misconduct.

AMNESTY SLAMS U.S. POLICE AND REVEALS WIDESPREAD MISTREATMENT OF CITIZENS - a damning report by Amnesty International claims that police officers are frequently violent, abusive and discriminatory.  The 150 page report issued in September 2005 shows evidence of brutal beatings by police particularly against gay men.  Dr. William Schulz, executive director of A.I.U.S.A. who conducted the report claimed that across the USA people were enduring injustices, entrapment, and trumped up charges instigated and carried out by the police.  The report titled "POLICE ABUSE AND MISCONDUCT" showed many cases of people being forced to the ground -- handcuffed and kicked in the head during raids. Some cases included officers raping suspects followed by threats.  Michael Heflin said ' if we cannot count on law enforcement to be clean then corruption like this will continue to flourish'  --- we can say that since 2005 there has been no changes and police corruption throughout the USA has indeed flourished and the departments responsible for policing have turned a blind eye to the majority of complaints lodged and, destroyed many in an attempt to cover up this behaviour by officers.

OTHER U.S.A. CASES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

LOS ANGELES POLICE IN BRUTALITY ASSAULT -  The massive corruption scandal involved twelve officers who fabricated evidence and the framing of suspects.  The affair reached a new high when officer Rafael Perez was convicted of stealing cocaine at the Rampart Division.  In an attempt to have his sentence reduced he gave the names of police colleagues who were on the take. 

Another Los Angeles Police Incident revealed that officers stormed into a cell after drinking heavily at a Christmas eve party and began beating seven young prisoners.  The Mexican American prisoners were covered with blood as a result of these outlaw officers.

THE BEATING OF RODNEY KING inflamed riots after the Los Angeles officers escaped prosecution despite the assault being shown as video evidence at a court hearing. The scandal went much further than the police expected and here is the background to this appalling case --- The first instinct of the police is to cast doubt or doubt the video evidence presented (Independent eyewitness George Holliday made the video). In pursuit mode on the highways of Los Angeles, a senior officer such as a police sergeant should be at the scene so no officer steps out of line. But on this night the video showed there was a police sergeant present, policeman Stacey Koon, who failed miserably.  Rodney King suffered it was said by the hospital - 12 fractures and a broken ankle with injuries to his face, of course, the police disagreed with that?  Assaulting Police Officers - Laurence Powell, Ted Briseno and Timothy Wind were charged with criminal offences - assault with a deadly weapon and using excessive force, while Sergeant Koon was still being investigated. The FBI was called in to do their own investigation.  Regarding the Patrol cars and radios, MDT's were used on all cars and discussions/messages were logged.  The transmission of a message at 1-12am revealed a chilling admission by one of the officers who said ' I haven't beaten anyone this bad in a long time'

NEW YORK POLICE SHOOT BOY 17 TIMES -- Officers David Gross and Sergeant Michael Jacobellis were put on administrative leave after shooting Michael Jones who it was alleged brandished a water pistol.

BROOKLYN POLICE OFFICER JUSTIN VOLPE confessed in court to an assault after changing his plea to guilty in a police brutality case after fellow officers testified against him.  Volpe and three other police officers were to face murder charges.  A fifth officer was also arrested in connection with the murders and the cover-up that followed.

TWO MEN BEAT UP BY BROOKLYN POLICE RECEIVE $76MILLION BY COURT.  Two men who were shot at by police in New York received a record payout that staggered the Brooklyn Authorities who almost went into meltdown. Gerard Papa and James Rampersant were mistaken for robbers when they were set upon by cops. A Brooklyn jury found the police guilty of negligence, false arrest and using excessive force.

12 COPS BEAT UP SUSPECT and were filmed doing so.  Philadelphia Police face paying out a similar payout to the Rodney King case - £2.5 million.  Victim Thomas Jones was beaten as berserk officers rained blows while a TV film crew were shooting the scene in a overhead helicopter. 

GEORGIA POLICE were filmed beating up a driver by the local TV company in their helicopter only days after a similar event.  Marshall Studdard was dragged from his car and assaulted by the patrol officers.

POLICE SHOOT DEAD UNARMED MAN -- Officer Randall Kerrick a North Carolina Cop has been charged with voluntary manslaughter after shooting an unarmed black man running towards him for help!  The police victim had been in a car crash and was seeking help from the police after having crashed his car.  The incident happened in Charlotte N. Carolina.  Officer Kerrick was one of three cops who responded to a call from a woman because the man knocked on her door...she didn't answer...and when the police arrived the distraught man ran to the police thinking he could get help......but was shot dead instead!

GOVERNOR SLAMS POLICE IN MISSOURI --- The Police involved in the 'Shooting of Michael Brown' have been accused of launching an -over-militarised response' to disperse protestors who wished to show their anger at yet another police shooting of an un-armed teenager.  Many people are angered by the fact that the boy suffered from several shots, not just one, and the fact the police move into a position of denial which later often becomes a cover-up and public whitewash.  The Police in Ferguson are refusing to let the Press get near and actively stopped them from reporting the situation.  Governor Jay Nixon said the 'police video appeared to cast aspersions on the dead teenager' in order to  take the focus of the police themselves.

USA POLICE CORRUPTION -- Some History --- 1970 investigations -- New York Police --- 20 out of 75 officers in Brooklyn took bribes. 'Plain clothes' Detectives took over a $1000 dollars a month in backhanders in return for turning a blind eye to crimes.  It even got to the stage were cops bribed other cops to keep investigators off their backs, and inform them when any of them were named in a likely investigation. This pervasive corruption was almost dismissed by Commissioner Murphy in 1971, but he failed to impress political leaders with his statements of ' traitors in uniform'.  Detectives collected thousands of dollars in bribes while the regular beat and uniformed patrolmen topped their pay packets from ordinary citizens who broke the law and were willing to pay fifty to a hundred dollars for them to look the other way.  One cop told a reporter at the New York Times - ' He had committed sixteen robberies assisted by eleven colleagues during his duty as a cop, and didn't mind talking about it now he'd retired.'  Corruption among officers was set to rise to a level that almost brought down the Police Department at one time.  The Knapp Commission took over and looked at the crooked cops in two ways --- one, 'the meat eaters' - a body of cops -- mainly detectives, who wanted huge bribes and pay-offs by misusing their powers. Example Two was ' the grass eaters' -- a large body of cops referred to as the foot soldiers on the beat, who consumed small bribes and anything that came their way while on duty.  The main trouble here was investigating the 'grass eaters' as they constituted the largest number, so the majority would get away with their scams and crime. Whereas, ' the meat eaters' where into big crime and big bribes, so Knapp had to form big task forces which eventually took down and netted 53 per cent of the corrupt cops at the top end of the corruption pile, which was a start, but it fell short of its target.

' 22 NEW ORLEANS COPS IN MURDER COVER-UP AND CORRUPTION '

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a major police cover-up case involving corruption hit the headlines --- four cops face the death penalty and five cops plead guilty to a cover-up as six people are shot by police. Micheal Lohman, a veteran cop (lieutenant) pleaded guilty to obstruction in the investigation, and another cop to fabrication of witness statements, falsifying reports and planting evidence (a gun). It is stated that all the cops involved made up a lie to cover up the fact they gunned down unarmed civilians.  The New Orleans force is already facing a federal investigation into corruption after it was stated that it was a corruption-plagued police department. Sergeants - Robert Gisevius, Kenneth Bowen, officer Anthony Villavaso and former officer Robert Faulcon were charged initially -- then in addition -- Sergeant Arthur Kaufmann, and now retired Sergeant Gerard Dugue and officer David Warren. Another 13 officers have been charged with conspiracy to pervert justice and collusion. The Federal investigation has turned its focus on higher ranking officers who may be involved. There are well over 22 cops in one force under investigation or charged and there may be more to come, so what does this tell us of corruption and those who say it no longer exists in a high tech society like the USA?

25 NYPD POLICE OFFICERS ON SERIOUS CHARGES, 200 MORE TO BE INVESTIGATED - scores of cops from the New York Police Department are being charged with ' ticket-fixing ' -- the probe reveals that some high ranking officers have been involved besides patrolmen and inspectors, sergeants etc, A Bronx Grand Jury are investigating into police officers fixing parking tickets for friends, relatives and politically connected people.  25 officers are on criminal charges so far, and 200 more maybe charged with disciplinary counts.

NEW YORK POLICE SERGEANT ADMITS FRAMING PEOPLE IN DRUG CASES -- POLICE SGT WILLIAM EISMAN appeared in court and admitted to framing suspects on drug charges. The veteran cop said he'd faked a case of marijuana against one man, and also coached trainee policemen to falsify paperwork to sidestep legal difficulties they might encounter. He was also found guilty of lying under oath.

NEW YORK COPS FRAME MOTORIST WHO GOES TO JAIL FOR FOUR MONTHS -- Yet another Scandal in USA police history among thousands more --- This little known and referred to case happened in July 2011 to the resident of Rochester, Jeramie Barideaux, who was nabbed by two cops for failing to stop his vehicle before the road line. Police Officers Rob Osipovitch and Ryan Hartley falsely accused him of this offence, and he actually spent four months in prison.  The officers also invented the 'finding of drugs and weapon' to boost their case.  However, in Court, CCTV evidence told a different story which caught both officers out and proved that the police had committed perjury. The Judge dismissed the charges and set the man free.  On July the 19th 2012 a lawsuit was filed against The City of Rochester N.Y. Police Dept and the two police officers for damages, which we can only hope is in the millions of dollars.....for the City and two cops.

COPS AND THE 'HOLLYWOOD BURGLARIES' SCANDAL -- Blamed on the 'Hollywood Distraction'  250 Cops in the Hollywood Police Division were investigated, Eleven were indicted for serious criminal activities.  The story started with two 'enterprising' cops of long serving careers, Officer Jack Myers and Officer Ronald Venegas, both assigned to 'burglary duties' -- that being responding to shop alarms. When it started was never ascertained, but on one such call out they entered the shop and before contacting the owner, helped themselves to goods and put them in the trunk of the police car for transfer to their own later. The Los Angeles cops not satisfied with genuine callouts, decided to smash shop windows and then wait in their patrol car for the radio call and zoom in and take the goods; blaming it on disappearing crooks.  They later specialised on video shops. Internal Affairs became interested and lay in wait on one call, both cops were arrested.  During investigations they implicated other police officers which turned into a corruption scandal that surprised the Division. Nine other cops were arrested, and one Sergeant Roger Gibson was found guilty on 13 counts of misconduct (he was caught in a hot tub with naked women in a vice operation prompted by what Myers and Venegas had confessed to). The Police Commander of the Hollywood Division took early retirement as investigators uncovered a wide range of offences, and some of the officers were transferred in the shake up and others given warnings.

THE USA's CULTURE OF LYING COPS ---Since the case of Officer Timothy Batt in 2002, when he took the witness stand at Alameda County Superior Court against his colleagues --- perjury by the police is certainly not uncommon in the USA.  The Oakland Officer told the court of the misdeeds by fellow cops, four of themselves going by the name of 'the Riders'   He confirmed that his training officer wrote a false version in evidence of a man he'd beaten -- Batt told the jury how cops would stoop to anything illegal to cover their tracks because they were police officers and they could get away with anything?  Officers Clarence Mabanag, Matthew Hornung, and Jude Siapno were all charged with assault, framing suspects, conspiracy to plant drugs and falsifying reports.  A fourth cop, the Ringleader, Frank Vazquez fled before being arrested (it is suggested he was tipped off by fellow police) and was classified as a fugitive to be arrested on sight.  The police department and city had seventeen civil lawsuits filed against them after the corruption went public.

ORDEAL BY LOS ANGELES COPS AND NO APOLOGY OR COMPENSATION --- A minor driving offence led to a nightmare jailing due to the Los Angeles Police Department, who are well known for their brash and methods of coercion towards suspects.  Emma Bowles found out the worst way of experiencing U.S. Justice which allows for nothing to get in the way of brutality and bloody-mindedness. She unbelievably ended up in a cell and unable to raise the bail.  The incident happened out on the Santa Monica Boulevard , she was pulled over by cops who did a check on her driving licence. Suddenly she was ordered to step out of the car, and then arrested. She was handcuffed, and what was the arrest for? apparently her registration had expired and that was a traffic violation.  She was then bundled off to jail to go before a judge the next day. She suffered a very embarrassing intimate body search during 'processing'  -- the court was cancelled the following morning which meant her spending 48 hours in the jail.  Handcuffed and waiting in the court in orange prison jumpsuit, the judge dismissed the charges and even after that she has to wait in a cell before finally being given her freedom.  What of charges against the cops? none, compensation for losing her liberty? none   she said ' I don't like the legal system in the USA' Emma is from Britain and she urges any tourists to beware the cops and forget about driving in another country.

OHIO SHERIFF OF 30 YEARS SERVICE PLEADS GUILTY TO THEFT IN OFFICE -- Another Law man no doubt commended in his nine terms in office, probably referred to as an honourable upstanding citizen and bringer-in of baddies --- Sheriff Gerald McFaul is now a 'baddie' himself.  His turn has come as they say -- as he was arrested and charged with theft in office and ethics violations.  He pleaded guilty to all charges!

NEW YORK POLICE DEPARTMENT DISBAND 'SPY UNIT' --- A surveillance unit that targeted Muslims and monitored their movements in the community since 2003 has been disbanded,  The covert unit of undercover detectives infiltrate student bodies and mosques....looking for information, but created tensions instead according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.  The 'Programme' had been set up by police officials and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

LOS ANGELES COPS PAY $640,000 DOLLARS OVER 'SPYING' OPERATION -- Cops were keeping surveillance on politicians, civil rights protestors and activists -- they created the PDID which was manned by around 70 cops who were watching anyone who they could classify within their own terms as 'likely' -- This suddenly hit the buffers as LAWSUIT AGAINST COPS arrived citing the police transgressions as violating constitutional rights; Police Chief Daryl Gates received this. He in turn knew the information was 'sensitive' and often came by means of the FBI and CIA.  Prominent City Lawyer Burl Pines (Civil Rights Lawyer) pushed the Superior Court to have the information made public. Resistance did come from the police, but not in time for a quantity of stuff being released via the media. The PDID claimed that the information could prove harmful if it was to be seen in the public domain.  The Police Commission on being too late (although making a successful court challenge) began to engage in 'file burning' -- some 2 million 'secret files' -- the police played it down by saying all but five percent of the stuff was too sensitive to be seen.  Eleven of the 70 officers were charged with 'improper intelligence gathering' -- after lengthy argument it was accepted that there had been a violation of some people's rights -- the trial and indictments were dropped in favour of the settlement. The PDID folded and was replaced by the ATD -- The Anti-Terrorist Division --- new name, new folk? we will never know, but the game remained the same!!

U.S. KING COUNTY POLICE PAY OUT $10 MILLION IN EXCESSIVE FORCE CASE -- U.S. Judge Stephanie Arend ruled that King County Police Deputies withheld information in the appalling case of Christopher Harris who suffered brain damage as a result of police brutality -- being slammed against a wall by a Deputy of the King County Sheriff's Office in 2009.  The Judge ordered them to pay a fine of $300,000 dollars for misconduct, and that is in addition to the Ten Million dollars damages the police had to pay the Harris Family. (Tacoma News)

EX-CHICAGO COP TURNED PROSECUTOR OPENS CAN OF WORMS AS HE ADMITS CORRUPTION IN OFFICE NAMING JUDGES AND FELLOW COPS -- In what seems a local issue, ex-Chicago Cop reveals a scandal that has a huge question mark and wider implications to consider over the Judiciary, cops and every state in the USA.  James J. Costello admitted in court that he bribed Judge Daniel Glecier and Judge Francis Maher of the Cook County Circuit Court.  Both judges are on trial along with Lawyer David Dineff who has also been bribing other judges on a regular basis.  Costello said as a police officer he was suspended 19 times for misconduct.  When he became a defence Lawyer he regularly met up with judges to fix cases and do a 'one-to-one' deal.  He admitted when he was a cop he accepted bribes from around 40 lawyers.  The corruption began in 1961 shortly after becoming a policeman when he took bribes from traffic violators and bookies.  In 1976 on becoming a lawyer assigned to narcotics cases, he bribed Judge Wayne Olson, who was later convicted for corruption. In 1986, Costello was finally caught, tried and jailed.  But that was not the end of this story, because hot on its heels came another Chicago Cop - former Officer Peter McElligott admitted to bribing another County Cook Circuit Judge John McCollom 20 to 25 times each month. He also revealed that he handed out fifty dollar bribes to hundreds of other officers in Chicago as 'Keeping Quiet' payments. One more ex-Chicago Cop Officer James Fallon came forward and testified to half a dozen bribes he'd given to McCollom.  Other Judges - former Judge Allen Rosin was involved, plus Judge John Murphy who served ten years for corruption.  Judge John Divine was also convicted of court corruption along with Judge Edwin Kretske and Judge James Conon (deceased).  Judge McCollom was on trial for racketeering, mail fraud and income tax violations besides the allegations of bribery.

The above article shows the 'tip of the iceberg' even though the US authorities would rather you believe this to just exist in Cook County and Chicago, but that doesn't add up, It gives a clear indication that if it happened there it could well happen in many counties and states throughout the US but remain undiscovered or suppressed. Even now they act as if this was nothing at all, which shows complacency and widespread arrogance throughout the legal authorities and a government hell bent on secrecy and cover-ups to hide corruption.

If the above happened in London, which is far bigger than Cook County, over 103 cops, 40 lawyers and 8 judges on corruption would be a massive scandal attracting world news coverage, and it's implications would certainly rock the judiciary and the police for months in the UK; if not years, but in the USA it's just another day!

CHICAGO COP REVEALS POLICE CORRUPTION IN CITY --- Former Police Officer Lopez turned book writer has revealed how one gang (the cops he was with) were one of the most corrupt on the streets.  He admits to being drawn into the badges of dishonour and how to fabricate charges and take bribes shortly after becoming a narcotics officer.  He tells of random beatings and brutality being done by cops and the abuse of power that goes unchecked along with how to fool and despise Internal Affairs.  He says crossing the line from police officer to criminal is easy and once you are doing it you know several mates within the department are with you too. He says that once you are in there is a code of silence that keeps law enforcers untouchable!

FOUR CONNECTICUT COPS ARRESTED BY FBI -- The East Haven Officers were arrested for civil rights offences including harassment and intimidation of Latino residents.  Sergeant John Miller, and officers David Cari, Dennis Spaulding and John Zullo..... one of them being the president of a local police union.  The report says they among other things, created false reports to cover up the abuses.....and no-one at the Precinct seemed to bother.

TWO BRIBE-TAKING COPS ARE NABBED --- In the Queens Area, off-duty officers Robert Espinal and Danny Cano were arrested for selling accident reports in an alleged insurance scam..... they had been accepting payments for NYPD Reports.

Another New York Cop, POLICE DETECTIVE Wojcicch Braszczok.... who works undercover was arrested for an active part in an attack on a motor vehicle.

WASHINGTON DC OFFICER ARRESTED ON CHILD PORN CHARGES --  Metro Police Officer Marc Washington is accused of taking photos of a nude 15 year old girl while on duty.  It is reported that he forced the teenager to strip for the 12 photographs.

SCANDAL HITS NEW YORK COPS -- A Video has revealed that a police officer placed a man in a choke hold similar to that of a recent video showing cops acting badly.....despite the move being banned as unlawful apart from dangerous.   The video that caused an outcry and the suspension of several officers after the victim Mr Eric Garner died in police custody.  This new case shows the chokehold arrest on the subway when a man is caught fare-dodging.   It says that NYPD are carrying out an investigation?

NEW BLACK YOUTH SHOOTING SCANDAL -- COPS KILL TEENAGER -- Yet again we have another incident were cops have killed a black man.  Police of Ferguson, Missouri have sparked outrage after shooting teenager Michael Brown 18, whilst in the back of a police car?  The St Louis County Police said that they had to use 800 cops to control the angry crowd that surrounded the police station.  It is said that the officer involved in the shooting has been put on administrative leave.... while they conduct the investigation?

COP GET OFF IN MICHAEL BROWN KILLING -- Officer Darren Wilson was cleared by a judge, despite the black teenager having several shot wounds.  The verdict caused widespread anger and inadvertently revealed that the cops were 'militarised' and moved on the demonstrators like an army.....something the police were not supposed to be when they go around in cars with 'Protect and Serve' written on them.  Self-serving seems to be more apt as officers all over the USA appear on the Internet pages involved in violence, robbery, fraud and much more.  Behind the badge there lurks a crook and the number of cops listed on the Internet is alarming, and it is growing day by day.

UN SAYS US COPS PROBLEM SHOULD BE TACKLED -- Even the United Nations have called for the American government to tackle the public's mistrust in the police and law enforcement.  The Race relations issue was most concerning, especially as there was a disproportionate number of young African Americans who have died in encounters with the police.  The UN Human Rights Chief said this also applied to those in US Prisons and black people on Death Row.  UN Leader Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called on the US Law enforcement to protect the rights of people to demonstrate peacefully.  

Sadly..... America have not seen the situation as a problem and ignored it for many years, so there is little hope with a country that still has ties with the KLU KLUX KLAN......thought to have vanished from History.....which in fact went underground amid the Press it got, and there were very few ever brought to justice, the police and government simply stopped looking and let them go....in order to conceal the wealthy and powerful who were holding the purse strings.....murder was possible for a price....especially if it was a black man.  Luckily in Europe The Nazi hunters never gave up on seeking out the guys who committed murder and worse, and some of those Nazi defectors fled to America where they were welcolmed.

ANOTHER BLACK SHOT BY POLICE - SHERIFF APPEALS FOR CALM -- Yet another shooting, this time it is victim Cedric Bartee in Orlando, who it is said had his hands above his head when cops shot him.  Sheriff Jerry Demings called for calm as he feared the backlash from the black community.  There is already much anger of the killing of Eric Garner in New York...who was killed by officers attempting to arrest him for illegally selling untaxed cigarettes on the street.

LATEST COP SHOOTING IN ST LOUIS AGGRAVATES SITUATION -- A black man shot at a petrol station by police only helped to worsen relations between the police and the ethnic groups who see the 'bad old days' return as if they had never gone away, but covered-up.  Officials in Berkeley were desperately trying to distance the killing from others that are proving to be explosive to the government and police.

COP LIES ABOUT SHOOTING WHICH IS CAUGHT ON CAMERA -- Another Policeman has raised the temperature of credibility after claiming a self defence situation that badly backfired when he was filmed shooting the man in the back several times.  Police Officer Michael Slager was arrested after the film was shown and charged with the murder of Walter Scott a black man who was running away from the Carolina Officer.  Many are saying that without the video evidence it was more likely the officer would have got off absolutely free and his lie accepted without much question.  Slager apparently tasered the man but that didn't stop him running away, and he then pulled his gun and shot the man in the back not just once, but several times.  It was said this happened over a vehicle check stop.... a faulty brake light!

BALTIMORE COP CHARGED WITH MURDER, FIVE OTHERS IN COLLUSION --- Resulting from the death of Freddie Gray a young black man who died in custody, one cop has been charged with murder and five others have been charged with complicity in the incident.  The charges on the five were said to be second-degree murder, assault and manslaughter by Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby.  The arrest was illegal she said and his treatment at the police station amounted to murder and manslaughter.  The black boy's death sparked riots in the city....the cops in the van claimed the boy died as an accident in the van....which was not accepted, the boy was in shackles and hand cuffs....his neck was broken!

'LAWYER IN TWADDLE SAYS BALTIMORE COPS DID NO WRONG' -- Not unusual for Lawyers really, who play many roles in making the Legal System a farce. Police Lawyer Michael Davey (equal to a Police Federation lawyer) expressed his concerns about fairness and integrity for the six charged offices in the Baltimore killing.

AIDE TO ATTORNEY LAWYER ARRESTED  OVER FAKE COP FORCE -- Branden Kiel was arrested in California for running a fake police force and impersonating the police.  The aide to The Attorney General's Office is said to have been running a fake police force with several others, Producer David Henry and Tonette Hayes...calling it a 'Masonic 'buddy boys' federation'....said to be connected to the Knights Templar ideology....from which came the Lawyers, Judges and solicitors of Modern times.  The Force claimed to have jurisdiction in 33 States and operating in Mexico City too.  Raids in the Beverly Hills district on members homes revealed 'Officers Badges' weapons and uniforms.

RIFF BETWEEN MAYOR AND POLICE WIDENS -- The City Mayor of New York Bill de Blasio was finding it difficult to repair relations with the police as officers turned their backs on him.  This situation came about as a lone avenger took out two cops in revenge for killing two black men.   He said at a press interview, 'Who would have thought that we would be back where we were 40 years ago' he said as NBC reporters looked on.

COP PROBLEM NEVER WENT AWAY -- The dirtiness of the US Police has never been properly exposed or investigated, and will never be due to the intervention of government officials anxious to play things down and keep a cover-up in place.  Law Enforcement relies on secrecy and being able to operate with the minimal of accountability..... and while this exists there will be cops appearing over the Internet daily, with many citizens reporting things they'd rather not be seen......but then again, they are quite blaze and this helps the arrogance.

THE PENNSYLVANIA BRIBED JUDGES SCANDAL --  District Judge Mark Clavarella and District Judge Michael Conahan faced allegations of taking around $2.6million dollars for a deal to send young offenders to private detention centres where excessive punishments were given to underage youths for relatively minor offences. This raised the suspicions of the community and raised the ugly head of 'abuse to minors' and what might be going on in the name of law and justice.  Another Pennsylvania District Judge, Willie Singletary was also found guilty of accepting bribes in another case. 

MORE CORRUPT JUDGES - G.Thomas Porteus Federal Judge for East Louisiana, impeached for perjury and corruption.  Samuel B.Kent Federal District Judge for Galveston, Texas, who was jailed for 33 months for deception and lies. Federal Judge Robert F.Collins was sent to prison after taking bribes from a drug dealer, and later faced impeachment charges.  District Judge Wes Teel and District Judge John Whitfield were convicted over taking bribes for favourable rulings  ---- Lawyer and Attorney Paul Minor serves 11 years for bribery --- District Judge Michael Murphy a leading judge at Los Cruces was indicted on bribery charges, and the list goes on....and on.

County Court Judge Dolores Briones charged with conspiracy to commit theft or embezzlement was caught up in a Public Corruption Investigation.

LAWYERGATE - THE SCANDAL The dismissal of U.S.Attorney's by President Bush--without explanation, despite having appointed them in the first place. They were: Alberto Gonzales Attorney General of the US.  Michael Battle, Director of the US Attorneys Office Justice Dept,  Bradley Schlozman, who replaced Battle,  Michael Elston, Chief of Staff to the Attorney General,  Paul McNulty, Deputy Attorney General,  William W.Mercer, Associate Attorney General,  Robert Coughlin, Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division of the Justice Department, Kyle Foggo, Ex-Director of The CIA who was jailed for fraud. Harriet Miers, Legal Counsel to Bush.

ELEVEN U.S. PRESIDENTS WERE LAWYERS --- ONE OF THEM WAS CALLED RICHARD NIXON!!

THE JUDGE BORK CASE --- 1987-88 -- The former Yale Law School Professor Judge Robert Bork failed in his attempt to be selected for The Supreme Court despite President Reagan's backing; the Senate Judicial Committee rejected him. He was a controversial choice in that he had followed 'disgraced' President Nixon's advice to dismiss Archibald Cox, The Watergate Scandal Special Prosecutor. Two of Bork's colleagues resigned rather than support his actions.  Judge Bork made a serious blunder of the 'racist' kind -- in that a magazine article in 1965 he advocated that 'whites' should be able to discriminate against blacks (Restaurant owners should have the freedom to choose who to do business with) and exclude them. This then exposed him to the wrath of the 'Anti-Bork' league -- Ronald Dworkin led a multi-million dollar campaign against Bork and depicted him as right wing using 'original Intent' constitutional theory as a mask for lawless judging. Another character of the league was actor Gregory Peck who blasted Bork in as many ways possible.

FALLING JUDGES -- The impeccable Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black fell on his sword when he admitted to a committee that he had been a member of The Klu Klux Klan in the latter part of the 1920's.   Chief Justice William Rehnquist was quizzed by The Judiciary Committee about three allegations against him -- that in his position as a clerk to The Supreme Court Justice in the 1950's, he wrote a memo arguing against a decision in 'Brown' to order desegregation of the schools, and that he bought and sold houses with restrictive covenants against Jews, and that he also harassed black voters in the 1960's.

LAWYERS AND JUDGES STEAL MILLIONS OF DOLLARS - 2008 --- The case that is now called 'The Maryland Scandal' -- The not widely known CNN News Report is hidden away in the vast pages of the Internet -- it says it is by Cazain -- The place = Cecil County, Maryland. Crooked Lawyer William F Riddle is the 'key position figure' along with Riddle's secretary Chris King. The scandal involves players a woman at Cecil Federal Savings and Loan.  It suggests Money laundering.  Court Clerk William Breuckman is accused of taking bribes.  Judge Karwacki a Circuit Judge is accused of Jury tampering. Other judges - Judge Lidiums, Judge Dexter Thompson -- accused of taking bribes from Lawyer William Riddle.  Then we have property stealing to the value of $1.8million. leading onto accusations that Lawyer Roger Schlossberg was aiding and abetting Ann Mace to steal the property, and to make matters worse, a huge amount of the article is supported by victims who have connected up with the web pages to support the allegations of criminal impropriety.

COURT OFFICIAL'S WIFE ARRESTED OVER THE KILLING OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY -- The killing of the District Attorney Mike McLelland of Kaufman County District, along with his wife Cynthia. The report says that Law Enforcement Officials are 'trying' to build a case against former Justice of the Peace, Eric Williams....whose wife Kim Williams has now also been arrested.  The Police are treating the case as a 'terrorist threat to the DA' in that they say the pair made various demands......this comes after JP Eric Williams was convicted of stealing three computer monitors from an office?

FBI SCANDALS AND CORRUPTION --- The Hanssen Scandal ---- Reporter Toni Locy managed to get at information that was not previously released or known when she exposed the story of 30 FBI employees who failed polygraph (Lie Detectors) tests, and no one was dismissed? The Hanssen Case exposed the fact that Russian Agents had been working for the FBI, which led onto a 'knock-on effect' causing embarrassment for the bureau.  'The Exam Cheats Case' --- FBI Director Robert Muellor said he didn't actually know how many operatives had cheated in exams, but he didn't deny that they had. This was in regard to techniques and surveillance on US citizens without evidence of wrongdoing.  Two Scandals, one connection: The FBI link between Penn State and U.C.Davis..... go to www.thenation.com  for more on this and other cases.

FEDERAL JUDGE ACCUSES FBI OF CORRUPTION -- FBI COVER-UP:  The Justice Department came under question and a scathing attack by a Los Angeles Federal Judge -- US District Judge Howard Matz, he accused the US Justice Department Attorneys of allowing an FBI Agent to present false testimony to a Grand Jury.  Also, that the agent and indirectly the Bureau inserted false statements in a search warrant application, and unlawfully intercepted e-mails between a defendant and his attorney.

FBI - 100 AGENTS CAUGHT SENDING EACH OTHER NAKED PICS -- In fact 1,045 employees were disciplined in 2010 to 2012 and 85 were dismissed.  Offences detailed in a confidential internal report shows that around 36,000 staff fall short of the requirements in conduct and behaviour expected.  It mentions hiding recording devices and sending nude pictures among many other things unsuitable for publication.

FBI SECRET FILES -- Attorney Jesse Trentadue filed new evidence of this in his lawsuit against the Bureau. The FBI withheld disclosure documents in the Oklahoma City Bombing Case -- many questions unanswered as a cloak of secrecy shields the FBI and other Government Agencies involved.  For more on this and others, go to www.examiner.com  'More proof of FBI Corruption'.  It seems that the days of Mulder and Scully are here with FBI top brass acting like the enemy in devious practices, rule at any cost, and good guys in their minority suppressed in order to please the White House and Senate. The FBI more or less crashed when Hoover was found to be compromising them - by him sneaking out in women's clothing and publicly pretending to be the scourge of deviant citizens.

FBI ACCUSED OF PERJURY --- and Obstruction of Justice -- in order to cover-up the misuse of FBI Computers for criminal activities by felons.  This is featured on a video showing on www.youtube.com

FBI ACCUSED OF MAJOR FIDDLE BY EX-FBI MAN: In an open letter on the Internet, Kevin B. claims he was a member of the FBI attached to the World Bank Office in Washington, and that he resigned when he discovered activities of colleagues were suspicious during an investigation.  He says his boss was 'conniving' with top officials to divert funds approved to settle lottery win claimants, and that there were deliberate delays over payments?  In the blog he mentions (Local and Foreign Debt) being something to do with the job....so what is going on here? (we have the full e-mail letter on file)

FBI STILL PERSECUTING UK RESIDENTS OVER OVER-SEAS HACKING ALLEGATIONS -- The big Sheriff of the world strikes again with yet another attempt to extradite a British citizen. They have now got their target - Ryan Cleary 20, who they say has hacked into US TV Networks, Fox and Sony Corporations. They say he faces up to 25 years in jail if convicted, perhaps that should be when?  This all comes at a time when the FBI are being investigated themselves by two central groups, which indicates how eager they are to throw the spotlight off themselves and get enough time to have someone in government railroad any paper trails and disc evidence.

FBI ARREST FOUR COPS --- In Haven, Officers - Dennis Spaulding, David Cari, Jason Zullo and Sgt John Miller are to go on trial charged with ten counts - Creating false reports to conceal their activities, false arrest of five activists, using unreasonable force and unreasonable search and seizure of items -- ( Civil Rights Abuses) -- it was also said these officers were a sort of cancer, bullies with badges involved in a conspiracy to corrupt justice.

NB: One minute it's cops arresting FBI agents, then the turn of FBI agents to arrest Cops...and so it goes on.

SECRET SERVICE AGENTS INVESTIGATED OVER SEX PEST ALLEGATIONS --- 64 Complaints have been lodged against US Secret Service Agents accusing them of sexual misconduct over a five year period.  A Senate Hearing were told that much of this involved suggestive e-mails with explicit sexual references, and three concerned inappropriate relationships with a foreign national...it was also stated that agents visited bars and brothels in Columbia prior to the President's visit.

COVER UP TO SAVE PRESIDENT'S EMBARRASSMENT  -- In relation to the above story, it now appears that the Sex Scandal involving agents were kept secret and handled behind closed doors in a 'damage limitation' exercise.  The Secret Service Agents nobbled amounted to nearly two dozen along with members of the military following the 2012 prostitution scandal.    At the time the Columbia situation was constantly denied by the White House, but new developments drawn from government documents reveal that senior aides in the Whitehouse were kept in the loop about what was going on.

CIA CHIEF IN RESIGNATION -- CHIEF OF CIA DAVID PETRAEUS resigned after having been discovered in having an affair outside his marriage, which brings his career to an abrupt end.

CIA AGENT FOUND GUILTY GETS 7 YEARS -- Found guilty in Absentia, CIA Station Chief, Jeff Castelli, now free will no longer be able to return to Italy, as a court in Milan has found him guilty in a case of kidnapping a Cleric from Egypt in 2003.  Should he ever be caught in the region he will go to prison immediately and serve the seven years. This decision was handed down by an Appeals Court.  (28 other Americans have been convicted in their Absentia in Italy over rendition charges).

CIA IDENTIFIED IN RENDITION -- 54 Countries were tainted in covert operations of 'kidnapping and transporting nabbed prisoners to secret prisons and locations around the world say the Open Society Foundation in New York. Over a quarter of the world's countries provided assistance to the CIA in an extraordinary rendition programme.  Exposed by a report 'Global Torture' the activities of the CIA are made public, it says the USA violated domestic and International laws.

NEW CIA CHIEF KEPT QUIET ABOUT ABUSES -- John Brennan who is now Obama's choice to head the CIA admitted knowing what the CIA got up to with abuses like 'water boarding' but felt it was nothing he should do anything about, so he didn't stop it.  He says he knew about the harsh interrogation techniques when he was just a member of the agency.....he claimed he was absolved of following his conscience because he was not in the chain of command at the time!

CIA History -- Secret Service Assassinations of third world leaders,  The CIA asked Britain's MI5 to help in the assassinations of third world leaders (1955-1975), but Senior Intelligence Officer Peter Wright turned down the request suggesting the CIA go to the French, 'it's more their type of thing' he told them. (Spycatcher' the book)

WHISTLEBLOWER REVEALS USA SPYING AND GOVERNMENT PARANOIA --- Just as they thought they had everything figured and Bradley Manning locked away.......along comes Edward Snowden an Operative with the CIA.....who like Bradley, realised what harm the NSA and CIA were doing to democracy.  They are currently calling Snowden a 'fugitive' and have him at the top of the FBI wanted list, in fact they are virtually threatening countries who will not hand him over.  The UK were told to tell airlines that they would be fined if he boarded any of their airlines.  The 'Sheriff of the World' are actually acting very weird and getting into a state of Paranoia as they hunt for this CIA man who left the country on a holiday which turned out to be their nightmare. He said' The NSA were invading people's liberties around the world spying on the Internet, intent on making every conversation and every form of behaviour in the world known to them, which poses a threat to democracy'   He also revealed that Britain's Spy station GCHQ were assisting the CIA and NSA and running spy programmes on the UK citizens via phone and Internet.  (June 2013)

SNOWDEN REVEALS USA SECRET 'DISHFIRE' PROJECT --- Another spying on e-mails programme that is collecting data on millions of people, and storing it.  The UK is right in there acting as co-partners...whilst pretending that they weren't in the driving seat.  The secrets game goes on, and America are deep in it.

SNOWDEN REVEALS NSA PLAN TO  'BLAME DIRTY TRICKS ON OTHER COUNTRIES' -- Holed up in Russia, former CIA man has revealed another episode of 'America's dirty tricks' to the public.  This sneaky one involves letting other countries take the blame...in that the NSA has a secret cyberwarfare program that can automatically fire back at cyber-attacks from foreign countries without any human involvement.  He says that this program could start a war (possibly accidentally) because the cyber attack can be launched to look as if it came from a completely innocent country, and they'd find it almost impossible to track or discover the real source.

In connection to the above article -- USA SPY GETS CAUGHT IN RUSSIA -- In January CIA Operative Ryan Fogle was arrested by the Russian Secret Service when he was supposedly 'recruiting'....much of the reporting centred on the 'amateur theatrics' Fogle aspired to. Because of his Diplomatic Immunity the Russians handed him back over to US officials as he had been expelled from Russia.

CIA FORMER CHIEF WANTS PARDON GRANTED OVER KIDNAPPING CONVICTION -- Robert Seldon Lady a former CIA man was sentenced to nine years jail in Italy, and cannot go anywhere near there because he will be arrested and taken to prison.  An Italian court found him guilty in a 2003 kidnapping, and he fled before the verdict back to the USA.  Italy has issued an International warrant for his capture and arrest.  He has requested a pardon from the country's President saying he did nothing wrong at the time because his actions were in accordance with US and International Law in force between the two countries.

CIA AND THE RENDITION TORTURES --- The sordid news took a long time to surface, and the CIA and US Govt were totally against that.  The authorities pulled a blinding stroke on how to get away with torture bringing in a law that shielded them from public inquiries.....RENDITION was brought in after 9/11.... using this event and tragedy to covertly indulge in actions of the most sinister kind.  The CIA and other Agencies claiming to be doing it in the interests of National Security kidnapped targets, imprisoned them (without any due process of law) and assaulted them 'torture style -- even sexually' without fear of prosecution.  They were immune, and agents of these acts such as Police, Warders and Prison Governors could lie, cheat, and commit crimes against the person in secret.... and even kill them without being brought to book.... because of this law and a Government that could not be challenged.  These so-called ordinary men with families would hurt, torture and defile a suspected person in a 'matter-of-fact' way to get information and go to any lengths to get a confession or statement.... they were not concerned about what the public thought..... because they were not being told.

CIA INTERFERES IN TERROR INVESTIGATION -- The Senate Intelligence Committee accused the CIA of interference when they were investigating 'interrogation methods and detentions' of terrorism suspects during the Bush Administration.  Ms Feinstein on the Committee, in an irate speech, accused the spy department of 'silently removing reams of documents pertaining to the probe from computers that it had previously provided to her committee's research staff to help them get the bottom of whether torture laws were broken during the interrogation of suspects.  She additionally made it known she was not happy with the CIA's tactics of allowing one of its senior lawyers to refer to the Justice Department.... a criminal complaint against her research team alleging that they had illegally copied a confidential internal CIA review of what happened during the Bush years.  She viewed this move as an attempt to 'intimidate' her staff, and considered it an abuse of power.

CIA MISLEAD GOVERNMENT ABOUT INTERROGATION BRUTALITY -- The Infamous CIA cannot speak the truth or even adhere to it, and were censored by the Senate Committee over it misleading the government in relation to aspects of interrogation and the use of brutality over a number of years, kept secret and often denied or played down.  It was found that the Agency concealed  the severity and politically sensitive methods of forcing prison detainees into surrender.  The Report still classified  referred to anonymity and disturbing incidents at the Agency's secret prison in Thailand...causing some employees to leave.

CIA GET POLAND INTO TROUBLE -- Judges in Strasburg ruled that Poland was wrong to allow the USA's CIA to torture two men detained as suspect terrorists on its soil.  The European Court of Human Rights ordered the country to pay the two men a total of £180,000 in damages.  The men were held and detained 2002 to 2003.

CIA SHAMES AMERICA - BUT THEY COULDN'T CARE LESS! -- Most Americans are not even bothered, their humanity and values slipped away years ago in return for greed and corruption.  The torture that has now been revealed is only out in the open because the people who did it have been granted immunity from prosecution.  So as you might just realise, owning up to these atrocities detailed in the report doesn't really matter, a USA government will look after their own first, even if these things amount to a crime against humanity, democracy comes a poor second to those in power, and the Law is theirs to interpret and act upon as they see it with the advice of their twisted lawyers who play out the game..... and being paid with public cash.....immunity is not given to ordinary folk, it is reserved for the elite and corrupt!

The UN say these CIA torturers should face a day in court?  and say this organisation was backed at a very high administration level pointing to the Bush Administration.....but this plea is just rhetoric, these animals already have immunity.  Those who carried out the torture are probably 'family men' living a lie and being seen as good Joe's in bible-bashing states...... so were the Klu Klux Klan.  Former Head of CIA Operations Jose Rodriguez said this report was like throwing him and his team under a bus.....but he hasn't had it that lucky yet!

AMERICA SPIES ON EUROPE ---  Whistleblower Edward Snowden ' dropped' the USA into it again, as Germany lashed out at the US after finding out that they were labelled as 'an unreliable ally'  The outrage has sparked an investigation into American covert surveillance (as revealed by Snowden).  France also voiced its indignation with the USA as it was told that it too was subjected to around two million such connections by the Spy program.

NSA AND GOVERNMENT SPY ON YAHOO AND GOOGLE ACCOUNTS -- Spies are everywhere said one American citizen, even in your own country, and its your own elected government that is lying to its voters.  Yes, the USA are tapping into Internet accounts just about everywhere in the World (with the Search Engines help) assisted in many cases by the UK spy network GCHQ.  The NSA have as the report says secretly broken into the main communications links that connect Yahoo and Google according to revealed communicates and documents supplied by Whistleblower Edward Snowden.  The NSA are able to collect at will - any and all information from hundreds of millions of user accounts.  When questions were put to the NSA and White House Officials, they declined to answer or comment?

NSA IN TELEPHONE SPY ACT NOT AUTHORISED --  In a Federal Appeals Court an appeal by the NSA was dismissed and their acts declared as 'unauthorised' by Congress.  The NSA tried to justify their plan to spy on millions of Americans collecting secretly recorded calls by citizens by bringing a lawsuit challenge to the constitution.  The 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said the surveillance violated people's privacy.

AMERICAN GENERAL JOINS THE WHISTLEBLOWERS -- The season is truly underway as we now have an American General -- Marine General James 'Hoss' Cartwright under investigation for leaking secret information about the Stuxnet Computer Virus, which temporarily disabled 1,000 centrifuges used by Iran to enrich uranium. A  US planned covert and 'classified' cyber attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

US GOVERNMENT ACCUSED OF INVOLVEMENT IN ASSASSINATION PLOT -- Venezuela has accused the USA government of plotting the murder of a politician in the forthcoming presidential election.  The CIA and Pentagon were accused by the acting leader Nicholas Maduro with conspiracy to assassinate an opposition leader, Henrique Capriles.

USA PENTAGON GUILTY OF BILLION DOLLAR FRAUD -- But no action taken......A Reuters Investigation revealed that the US Pentagon discovered massive accounting fraud within the Pentagon itself.  They discovered unauditable legers and corrupted data etc, in the accounts leading to the disappearance of Eight Trillion Dollars of taxpayers money.  The US Government as usual, denied that it meant stealing or lies being involved, and only just agreed to the possibility of 'some sort of profiteering'   It is being categorised down  to ' a miscalculation of resources'   which means, the money has gone, no one is to blame, and you can't do anything about it!

POLITICAL CORRUPTION -- Lewis Libby, Chief of Staff to Dick Cheney, convicted of perjury in the 'Plame Affair' who got 30 months in prison and was fined $250,000 dollars.  Alphonso Jackson Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, resigned amid being investigated.  Karl Rove, Senior Advisor to G.W.Bush was investigated for improper influence.  State Senator Joseph B Montoya was convicted of corruption.  Senator Ted Stevens for Bribery and Tax Evasion.

REPUBLICAN POLITICIAN JAILED FOR THEFT - Florida's Former Chairman of the Republic Party, Jim Greer was sent to jail for 18 months after pleading guilty to 4 counts of theft and one of money-laundering.  It was said that he took $125,000 of party funds, and that by pleading guilty he had averted a trial that had threatened to expose the underbelly of Florida's dominant party.  He was once one of the most powerful political figures in Florida.

PUBLIC KEPT FROM THE TRUTH -- THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION -- Washington Post's Bob Woodward tells of how in 2007, Chief of Staff, Andrew Card with indirect support from other high officials in the government, made attempts to get rid of the then Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfield who knew about the secrets, and the plan to hide the truth from the US voters and citizens.  More on this can be read in his book 'State of Denial' Bush at War Part 3.

THE STENCH OF AMERICAN JUDICIAL CORRUPTION -- One would not suppose the USA could sink lower, but it can and does.  They have now got a man who intended to honour his innocence to refute it by pleading guilty -- in order to get out of jail earlier -- that man, the victim, is UK Citizen Christopher Tappin extradited by the bent UK Law System on charges of helping the Iranians, and involving the supposed attempt to supply missile batteries....he has now been urged to plead guilty as they tormented him with the prospect of serving up to 35 years. To get what they want he only serves around two years and they might if they feel good, let him serve it in the UK.

THE WRIT AGAINST MAYOR TOM BRADLEY -- Los Angeles. Around the Time of the Rodney King incident, Mayor Tom Bradley was up to his neck trying to squirm out of misconduct allegations. The City Attorney filed a lawsuit against him -- a six count lawsuit of 'intentionally or negligently' failing to report at least $222,000 in financial holdings as required by the State Political Reform Act.  The Mayor agreed to pay a $20,000 fine for failing to disclose his investments...other accusations that he misused city resources prompted him to return $55,000 to 'questionable fundraisers'  Even the FBI were looking into his dealings; especially Insider Dealings' amid talk of his dishonesty, lying, and breaches of integrity. Mayor Bradley was never pushed out of office, he had friends!

THE JACK ABRAMOFF SCANDAL -- Jack Ambramoff was convicted of mail fraud and conspiracy, he was the key figure in a corruption investigation in The White House --Officials J.Steven Griles and David Satavian, Bob Ney and nine others were arrested. Abramoff was given 6 years prison, but was released after doing three and a half years in a federal jail.

THE FREZNO COUNTY CORRUPTION SCANDAL --- California FBI Agent Jim Wedick hoped he could close the case on one of the biggest corruption cases of his career -- when they arrested four crooked state senators and ten other public officials.

CORRUPTION IN THE USA continues with the related case of The Stanford Fraud Case involving a $7billion fraud involving cricket. The American tycoon Allen Stanford wants his trial delayed for a long time. His lawyers say that he is ill -- he has been held since 2009 and it is now 2011, two years and no end in sight. He faces 21 counts of fraud. The big-time swindler ran a ' Ponzi type ' scam carried out through his bank in Antigua. This pillar of society, yes, a familiar word used before they are discovered, even had a knightood. Wikileaks released info suspecting this man was involved in a huge fraud, but of course, the Americans didn't take any notice at the time - when it said ' The controversial billionaire companies are rumoured to engage in bribery, money laundering and political manipulations' -- and now this important man is at the centre of a huge financial fraud.

THE MEDICARE $295 MILLION DOLLAR FRAUD -- 91 people have been arrested and charged across eight cities in the USA for ' false-billing' according to news reports. Doctors, nurses and medical professionals have been involved in medicare fraud schemes stealing precious taxpayers resources it said.

THE BCCI FRAUD SCANDAL -- America's great banking scandal, regarded as the financial scandal of the century at the time.  The fraud was exposed in 1991 with the amazing abrupt closure of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.  The World suddenly received a wake-up call that banking was not what they thought, yet others had been trying to get this across.  Questions arose about the CIA and why they had not passed on their knowledge of this BCCI corruption to Government sources?  The links to terrorism at the BCCI went ignored, and even the Bank of England did not act on the strong evidence of fraud, and the inherent deceit that moved into place to cover up this story. Corruption in the BCCI was said to have begun in the 1980's when operations within the banking system at BCCI offered Muslim Groups banking deals which resulted in a good time for terror gangs, money-laundering and under-the-table arms deals involving International Security Services, drugs, and dictators. When the BCCI collapsed it left a huge amount of small shareholders adrift....their money had been used in many corrupt schemes involving billions of dollars used in charming oil rich Arabs and making loans to Middle East concerns that had other agendas. Politicians fell headlong into the glitz and did not question the lavish spending on big business entertainment and charity events, all of which hid the real truth of BCCI's financial scandal.

BUSINESSMAN RAJ RAJARATNAM IS JAILED --U.S. Hedge fund boss of the Galleon Group was jailed for insider trading and received a sentence of 11 years in prison.  It was said by the Judge that ' crimes and the scope of crimes reflect a virus in our business culture that needs to be eradicated '  Raj was found guilty on 14 counts of securities fraud and conspiracy charges.  It was said that 24 co-conspirators had already been sent to jail. He was fined £6.4 million and ordered to hand over £34million in illegal gains.

TEXAN BILLIONAIRE GETS 110 YEARS--- accusing the Government of involvement and ruining his business in order to substantiate the charges. Allen Stanford who had a global financial empire was accused of swindling investors of around 12 billion dollars.  Houston Prosecutors were looking for a 230 year jail sentence!!

THE PRIME MORTGAGE SCANDAL has been firmly associated with the U.S. Government and the way they concealed their involvement in allowing loans with the banks to people who could not afford them, thus creating the grounds for the financial crisis that dogs the world today.  It has been revealed that they deliberately took no notice of advisors well before the matter became unmanageable. The loans far outreached what was normally expected and homebuyers without security were allowed to get into huge debt.

AMERICAN GANG BEHIND £30 MILLION GLOBAL CYBER ROBBERY: Yes, the Americans certainly have the Internet figured out....they have a monopoly over its software, search engines and much more.....so it comes as no surprise to find that an American gang made an online heist of grabbing money from cash points in many countries all over the globe.  The well trained hackers only took ten hours to make 36,000 unlimited cash withdrawals using swipe cards with hijacked data.

US -- STANFORD EXECUTIVE IN $8.6 BILLION FRAUD SWINDLE -- Texan R.Allen Stanford was sentenced to 5 years in jail for swindling investors in one of the biggest Ponzi Schemes in the history of the USA.  He pleaded guilty after doing a deal with State Prosecutors who'd originally asked for a 30 year prison sentence.

FAKE WINE MAKER OF 'VINTAGE ORIGIN' IS JAILED ---- Collector and seller of vintage wine Rudy Kurniawan was jailed for ten years by the court for trading in and making false vintage wine in his Californian kitchen.  He sold the stuff for tens of millions of dollars said the prosecution.  The cheap 'witch's brew' was deemed not safe or confirmed safe by the foods and drink watchdog...and the public must be protected said the judge.

US FINANCIAL GROUP IN CRIMINAL INQUIRY --  Former staff at the firm of Combined Insurance, a subsidiary of US Financial Group ACE are under a criminal investigation concerning the Australian Securities and Investment Commission over allegations that they used fake mobile phones to steal clients' identities and maximise their commission payments.  It says that up to 60 percent of Combined Insurance 70,000 Australian policyholders could be affected by the scam.

THE LYNCH MOB techniques in the law to silence Wikileaks reminds one of the USA Racism and Prejudice that hammers down anything that might challenge its supremacy or reveal the real face and agenda of those in power. History has shown us that black people stood trial for crimes they did not commit amid bent judges, power mad lawyers and cops who made sure the evidence disappeared. Some of these innocents were executed while those who were instrumental in putting them there and covering up retired unconcerned about what they really were. Some left prison without a penny of compensation with the authorities thinking they never owed it and why? because the USA isn't the great freedom giant it pretends to be. --- it lives the lie!

CORRUPT U.S. GOVERNMENT bring bogus charges and jail whistleblower who reveals their criminal acts; they are holding Bradley Manning who supplied Wikileaks with confidential documents that showed government cover-ups, lies and deceit at the very top of the political system.  He wanted to show the world how corrupt the Americans are and what they will do to silence opposition, and being jailed has proved this beyond a doubt. The U.S. Government say it has to do with Security hoping to justify the arrest, but it merely shows you how far they will go to remove opposition to their schemes and criminal acts they wish to keep a secret.

U.S.PRESIDENT OBAMA NAMED IN COVER-UP -- as he dismisses Inspector General Gerald Walpin who was investigating prominent Obama Supporter, Kevin Johnson. The tax and finance chief Walpin said this was an attempt to suppress wrong-doing by Johnson who was misusing taxpayers cash for political activities.

THE DEAL WITH CHINA THAT COMPROMISES AMERICA -- Wikileaks revealed the thing that probably annoyed the USA the most, and that was the Chinese bailing out America's Internal Debt Crisis. Before this happened leaked cables showed America increasingly alarmed by China's increasing military power. In 2007 the little known incident of the Chinese shooting down one of their own satellites displeased the US. This led to a communicate saying America would defend its space hardware and interests. Then as if in retaliation and to show similar power, the USA shot down one of their US satellites in 2008, but claimed they were getting rid of a used and obsolete model. It was also revealed that after the Chinese bailout Hilary Clinton said in a cable, 'How do you deal toughly with your banker' America's largest foreign creditor. It was also at the same time America appeased China by banning protestors on the Olympic torch journey...contrary to what it preached about freedom of expression. This was obviously to please Beijing, which it did for a while!   

AMERICA'S WAR GAMES CHINA-STYLE AND HALF A BILLION DOLLAR LOAN -- Mixing it in Asia has been a side show that the US have been playing since the start of the Second World War.  They even 'courted' China's leader Chou En-Lai (who along with Chairman Mao symbolized a regime of oppression and corruption). President Roosevelt showed a keenness to open negotiations with Yenan at the same time the half billion dollar deal was being given to Chungking (who was getting ammunition from Germany). Even the Nazis supplied China with sixty percent of its ammunition in 1939 when the USA's ally Britain was at war with Germany!  Yet, there they were, the Americans backing Chungking forces with American Forces...Kuomintang were astonished to find the Americans supporting both sides and wanting Kuomintang and Chungking to be a partnership as war raged around the country. America was also mixing it with Japan before Pearl Harbour ruined the economic plans in Asia. When this happened they threw all their weight into supporting China to overthrow their aggressive neighbour...and out came another 'lend-lease' agreement.

WHICH STATE TOPS THE LEAGUE IN CORRUPTION? --- A report says that goes to North Dakota, where Government corruption apparently oozes. Federal Agents arrested Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich after a 'wiretap' recorded him committing a crime. He actually ran for office in an election on 'a clean-up' ticket after his predecessor, Republican George Ryan was convicted in 2006 of racketeering, bribery and extortion.  Alaska booted out Republican Senator Ted Stevens who was found guilty of not declaring or reporting gifts from wealthy friends.  Louisiana Democratic Republican William Jefferson was indicted in 2007 on racketeering and bribery after investigators found $90,000 in marked currency in his freezer!

ONE MUST NOT FORGET WATERGATE when looking at the USA, it revealed corruption right at the top of government -- the President, Nixon, who said he could not be touched -- he was the law! and he never did a day in jail for what he did.  People around him, and that was officials like FBI and CIA subverted investigations and tried to cover up evidence in order for lies to be told to the people of America. Investigations never revealed how many people carried out covert activities to cover up the real amount of corruption, they were mysteriously discontinued. Many high ranking officials and police officers walked away from being exposed as it was best for 'damage limitation' and besides, some were near to pension so it wasn't in the public interest to pursue them?

THE DANIEL ELLSBERG 'Pentagon Papers' which led to 'WATERGATE'  -- National Security as we now know all too well these days includes the covering up of lies, sacrificing the innocent in order to sustain those lies, and making it impossible for the truth to be exposed by virtue of laws designed to suppress and defeat challenge. This is what Daniel Ellsberg faced when he realised documents had been altered, changed, and re-presented in order to fool the Nation. He was a key worker in that 7,000 page 'Top secret' analysis and felt he had to expose the truth even if it meant that he could be charged with treason.  Ellsberg was incredibly lucky really, in that the Pentagon reacted like a bull out of a gate. Due to Nixon Aides, officials resorted to burglary and break-ins and were caught. The FBI aided these moves at times and became 'jobsworths' as they too got caught up in the object of silencing Ellsberg...but no FBI men were ever arrested or charged...neither were some policemen and Pentagon staff who stood on the sidelines knowing that senior staff were carrying out something wrong, they would have happily seen Ellsberg jailed for life...and continued their lives without a care...yet many got away with their part in the scandal, only a handful were ever charged and did jail time....such is democracy and truth!

THE RODNEY KING RIOTS ---Los Angeles was burning for six days, all because justice failed the impoverished and poor besides the American Blacks. The four cops who beat up Rodney King were acquitted? despite camera footage...and that sparked the riots of the 90's....it highlighted the corruption within the legal system and the police force, who later said the legal system did not find the cops guilty??

THE MIAMI RIOTS OF 1989 -- was another Police Brutality Issue that raised questions on police tactics etc.

THE KLU KLUX KLAN were an extreme organisation led and controlled by bigoted US white males who despised the coloured race - blacks -- and sympathisers with acts of murder, destruction and torture. Some were unmasked as police officers, town officials and businessmen all hiding behind masks to carry out despicable deeds that shamed America.  They burnt, terrorised and committed a sort of genocide acting much like the Hitler SS. Like their cowboy past, they lynched and executed blacks. Many of them got away without prosecution because the American Judiciary were not willing to expose who among them had assisted the massacres.

THE SHOOTING OF CIVIL RIGHTS CAMPAIGNERS --- The US Government ordered police and troops to shoot civil rights marchers, which led to one of the bloodiest atrocities in the History of America, something they would prefer to forget!

USA OPPOSE BAN ON LAND MINES BECAUSE OF FINANCIAL INTEREST and they supplied these weapons that don't just kill the enemy.  During the condemnation of land mines in Angola and other regions, in which several countries united to ban this weapon, the U.S.A. opposed the ban -- largely because they were making money in deals to supply mines. The atrocities caused by these mines to civilians angered and shocked Europe, the UK who called for them to be outlawed, but the only outlaws that could be seen afterwards were the Americans!!

MANY US JUDGES ARE CHARGED WITH CORRUPTION, but too many for us to list here, (we have featured a few) -- in fact, we'd probably use up all the available web size to accommodate the hundreds and thousands we'd have to list -- which would include the lawyers too. It would probably make interesting and sad reading so we shall leave Wikipedia to guide you to those cases scattered all over the Internet. Many such cases involve bribes and sex scandals, but our own judges we feature have similar incidents, so we shall leave it to you to scour the internet and enjoy yourself.

JUDGE UNDER CORRUPTION ALLEGATIONS -- JUDGE LAYNE WALKER is facing allegations that he may have misused funds..... reports say that he is lashing out at his accusers and those he sees against him.  The County Judge of Jefferson is being investigated by the Texas State Commission and The FBI.

THE STRANGE U.S. LAW AND JUDGE JUDY SHEINDLIN --- The exported show purports to be about a small claims procedure -- amounts being $5000 yet, much of the material is about crimes, criminal acts such as assault and theft etc, one recently (2007)covered a young guy having set fire to a letting where he was building a marijuana farm, and had most of the stuff in place.  Yet, he was not in jail for conspiracy to supply a drug by the act of providing the means to support the growing of and the quantity beyond any personal use?  One hears about how countries should be getting tough on drugs, suppliers etc, especially the U.S. and Columbia, and this individual was just being sued for damages? others in countries like Singapore and Malaysia are serving up to 20 years for less than what this young man did.....is the U.S. really a Sheriff or just trying to make it look that way?

USA PROSECUTION LAWYER CAUGHT WITH DRUGS -- A Prosecutor for New Orleans, Attorney Jason Cantrell was caught in possession of marijuana when a joint fell out of his pocket (an  unfortunate incident) in front of a cop at the Parish Magistrates court.  He was charged by the Police and suspended from his position.

U.S. SCAM LAWYERS CONVICTED OF FRAUD --- In Frankfurt, Louisville, a Federal District Court convicted Lawyers William Gallion and Shirley Cunningham Jr, of scamming 440 Kentuckian plaintiffs on nine counts including wire fraud and conspiracy.  The seven week trial resulted in the men facing up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.  In Aiken County, Lawyer Anthony Clark Odom, once the former Aiken County Assistant Solicitor General, was arrested and charged with sexual misconduct against a minor.  The victim was an undercover agent.  She said 'he believed he was chatting up and soliciting sex from a 13year old girl'

JUDGE IN ASSAULT ATTEMPT AT LAWYER -- A Florida county Judge John Murphy took a hit at the assistant public defence lawyer, because he was annoying him.  Court video caught the scene on camera as the judge threw a punch at lawyer Andrew Weinstock as they were attempting to settle a disputed trial date.   The Judge challenged him to go outside and settle it in 'the old way'    The Judiciary asked him to step down and attend anger management counselling.

CRAZY LAWYER SHOT BY COPS IN FLORIDA -- A graduate Lawyer, Myron May, was shot by the police at the Florida State University Library after he shot three people, none of whom died from their wounds.  Myron May was killed.

MANY US LAWYERS are there on the Web having committed fraud and bribery etc, too, so go to the Internet and follow the advice above if you wish to see them and have the time to read most or all of them. Just type in Bent Lawyers, thieving Lawyers, corrupt lawyers etc, and you should find a list of results...also use the word solicitor or attorney, barristers to widen your search.

P.S. There are hundreds of cops having been indicted and committing crimes also on many, many pages.

'CORRUPTION BY THE USA OVER INTERNET POLICIES AND MEDIA POWER BACKED BY CORPORATIONS AND GOVERNMENT --- Robert McChesney let fly at the U.S. Government in his recent book looking into ' The corrupt and Secretive Enactment of Public Policies Surrounding the Internet ' - Class Privilege over Democracy tells us that the United States connived within the powers of government to create myths so that the people would not look too closely into the U.S.Media System.  They deliberately gave the impression to the public of ' this new technology will set you free ' when in fact, it was meant to cut off and suppress all possibilities of informed public debate.

THE USA INTERNET GIANTS CONTRADICT US BELIEFS OF FREEDOM --- Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and Cisco were called into answer questions at a special Congressional sub-committee for aiding and abetting Chinese repressive policies on repression. One Chinese dissident and critic has already been jailed because of info given by one of these search engines. The committee reacted to the displeasure of Internet users who said there was double standards operating in secrecy. Capital Hill rapped the four and said they were co-operating too closely with Hu's crackdown on China's critics. The American slogan 'The Brave and Free' is not that true.

Big business, corporations, professionals and legal bodies, began to see how they could bend the meanings of ' The First Amendment ' to their advantage and undermine the balance of Citizenry power so that a fraction of the citizenry could benefit greatly, and give them undue political power.  By the same token these same people were eager to keep ' The Telecommunications Act of 1996 ' as it was so that they could benefit more as the Internet opened up more to commerce. There were no public discussions on how best the Internet could serve the people -- these corporations were ' self-regulating ' without accountability, keeping for the most part very secretive while getting the nods and winks from politicians on their payroll.  Many governments outside the U.S, including the U.K. seek overall control of the Internet so that they can manipulate and suppress public criticism, investigation and free speech, because WHAT THEY REALLY FEAR IS  ' BEING FOUND OUT '

ANTI-VIRUS INTERNET BOSS JOHN McAFEE was evicted from his Oregan apartment and accused of stalking.  It is said that McAfee had fled from Belize where police wanted to interview him about a fatal shooting of a US expatriate who lived near his property...he arrived in Pacific Northwest last winter (2012).

THE PERSONAL SERVICES VICE SCANDAL USA MANHATTAN STYLE -- Spanking, fetishes and sex in the USA, at last revealed as the USA have their own 'Cynthia Payne' -- In court is a British Madam who has the goods on the super rich and officials in Government.  Anna Gristina has her black book with many names -- powerful people in politics, law enforcement, lawyers and the ultra wealthy in American Society.  She was denied bail by the judge because of the possibility that others in the police or government might help her escape in order to prevent themselves being exposed and embarrassed. The 'Madam' is charged with promoting prostitution. She fled to Canada after a tip-off before finally being arrested. This comes after the Prostitution Scandal involving New York Governor Eliot Spitzer whose career ended abruptly. She was stated as having a brothel on East 78th Street.

INTERNATIONAL CHILD PORN SQUAD NET 222 USA CITIZENS --- The Child pornography Investigation Unit along with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency arrested 222 Americans and 23 others from six other countries.  Agency Director John Morton said that although they'd arrested 23 other people from six other countries outside the US the majority of suspects and offenders were Americans.  'Operation Sunflower' was ongoing for five weeks from Nov 1st to December the 7th 2012 identifying people who own, trade or produce child pornography.

AMERICAN AIR FORCE SEX SCANDAL -- Air Force Training Instructor Tech Sgt Bobby Bass was jailed for six months and reduced in rank, plus a fine of $3,000.  The Military sex scandal revealed that Bass had forced recruits to stand naked as he looked on; he was found guilty of 31 charges including wrongful sex, assault, cruelty, assault and maltreatment, and dereliction of duty.  He was charged initially with male rape, but got off?

US MERCENARIES SCANDAL -- Four guards who worked for Blackwater a controversial US Security Firm have been found guilty of 30 Iraq deaths.  They opened fire into a crowd of unarmed civilians in Baghdad.  Three of the men were found guilty of manslaughter, and one of first degree murder.  Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty and Dustin Heard were found guilty of killing at least 12 people....and the attempted murder of 11 others.

THE MILITARY VICE SCANDAL -- It has been reported that five American Soldiers are involved in a vice scandal in which Eleven Secret Service Guards were booted out of Columbia.  The soldiers have been confined to barracks after the scandal involving prostitutes became public. It has been revealed that both the soldiers and Secret Service Guards took prostitutes to their rooms, and that the five soldiers violated curfew....and this was all before Obama's visit.....and they were there to check out security.

AMNESTY HAS RECORDED 450 DEATHS OF UNARMED SUSPECTS BEING KILLED BY USA POLICE OFFICERS IN THIS GUN-TOTTING NATION OF COWBOYS.

' U.S. Government and FBI in huge unreported Financial Scandal '

We have made great attempts to verify this story. Our source relied on a confidential letter handed to us by a Prison Warden on the Isle of Wight, a Mr Thomas Curran, who incidentally failed to turn up at a secret meeting in Portsmouth. He had previously told us he had a huge file and proof to back up his story, and that he had contacts in the U.S.  He had hoped initially that this should go to Wikileaks, but his non-appearance or receipt of the file meant that we could not forward it to our friends.  However, other lines of investigation did connect with the document and we shall now begin.  Mr. Curran said his suspicions did begin in 2008 whilst watching a BBC programme about tower 7, the third tower to come down on 9/11. He said he was shocked to later learn that tower 7 contained 'one dreadful secret' --- files and documents of an FBI investigation of banks/financial houses that had been placed in the tower had all been destroyed, conveniently so, he said.  Mr.Curran pointed out that his relative Hugh Curran who was killed in the early hours of 14th December in Ossining, New York had money in a trust fund that was held by the Chase Manhattan Bank (one of the banks under investigation). He states he received along with others, a set of accounts regarding the financial fund - which did not ring true. Legal Representatives at the Law Firm kept saying ' We represent a respectable bank ' but  Mr Curran had no intention of signing for the release of the fund. In early December 2001 the eldest of the ' remaindermen ' pleaded for him to sign promising that as soon as they got the money they would take the bank to the cleaners. The truth began to take several years to emerge and the programme in 2008 changed it all.  When did the FBI begin the investigation? what information made the FBI investigate the bank?  Did the FBI cover-up what was going on?  Who stopped the investigation?  What happened to the investigation files, discs, computer hard drives and paperwork?  When was all the results of this investigation placed in a dept in tower 7?          He goes on to say the convenient atomising of this evidence was the work of Dick Chaney taking orders from George W. Bush, whom he believes was looking after his own interests and those of his friends on Wall St.  He says The White House Administration saw their chance to benefit from this when that fateful day 9/11 happened and the attack took out two towers, whereas a careful explosion designed to make the building fall in itself befell the tower 7 and the financial horror would be kept secret - which was very convenient for the banks who'd been under investigation?

Mr.Curran's claims of a crooked Law Firm in White Plains led us to McCarty Fingar Donovan and Drazen, cash paid to a judge and the Estate of Margaret McKeown and the Hudson Valley Bank who made payments of thousands of dollars to Judge Scarpino in loans?  The law firm appeared before a court in a case concerning relief against McCarty Fingar who implied they had a special relationship with a judge.  She, Justice Sandra Miller denied this, but was later found to be employed by the law firm?      Proceedings involving Carvel Ice Cream Estates led to an amazing clash as Surrogate Judge Scarpino refused to disqualify himserlf in rulings regarding Frank Streng and McCarty Fingar, even after he'd finally re-accused himself in the McKeown estate for similar reasons.  In a paper report Surrogate Scarpino denied an application to disqualify himself despite the production of undisputed documents showing his rather fortunate connection with the Hudson Valley Bank, another of the banks under investigation and benefiting from the Tower 7 demise.

There is more on this and it can be accessed by going to McCarty Fingar Donovan, Drazen, in the search box on the Internet which goes much further than we have in establishing dirty dealings in the judiciary, legal profession, and Government. We only scratched the surface so it may need more excavation deep style!!

AMERICAN TROOPS POSE WITH AFGHAN BODIES --- Outrage erupted on the discovery of American troops grinning as they hold up the severed legs of a suicide bomber. The troops form the 82nd Airborne Division smile happily for the camera. This follows the paratroopers in the same platoon posing with three bodies of insurgents who had fallen foul of their own bomb device. Two soldiers hold up the hand of a corpse and so it went on.

THE EMBARRASSING STAND BY RUTLEDGE AND THE TREATY WITH BRITAIN --- George Washington's nominee for Chief Justice -- John Rutledge, was rejected because he opposed 'The Jay Treaty' with Britain in 1794. This was a treaty of Commerce and Navigation to facilitate ten years of peaceful trade between America and Britain. It specified the withdrawal of British Army Units and wartime debts to be sent to arbitration. There was also the matter of Canadian boundaries which had been fiercely contested. The Americans were granted limited rights to trade with British possessions in India and the colonies in the Caribbean in exchange for some limits on American cotton exports. The treaty was ratified on February the 29th in 1796.

IN 1947 THE USA PLACED TIT-FOR-TAT EMBARGOS ON THE UK OVER FILM DISTRIBUTION -- America's film Industry actively thwarted J.Arthur Rank from getting its films into countries and signing deals. They feared competition, much like Microsoft now, practised unfair competition tactics in order to profit from a monopoly.

USA AND THE 'FALKLANDS' THREAT TO UK --- A report reveals that the good old USA more or less were prepared to  throw aside the so-called 'special relationship' in favour of telling the Argentineans that British Troops were about to come ashore on South Georgia.  Files exposed the decision by the Americans to stay neutral, which meant they could stay friends with Argentina.....said by Al Haig US Secretary of State.

THE USA LIES AND ATROCITIES --- We can only feature a mere look at this as there is so much, and much of it is very disturbing.....but it happened, it is documented, some hidden, but it is here for you to see:

For American Government lies is the website  www.americancivilrightsrevew.com which details and lists what THE FBI and CIA got up to and still do.

For more facts of a truly staggering size visit  www.americanussr.com  an archive of America's lies, treachery, torture, deceit and murder etc. 

American Atrocities in Iraq is a very disturbing and detailed work of research with U.S. Soldiers named and in some case photographed.  Go to  www.mindprod.com  - the Iraq War Atrocities by the USA.

In Korea the American soldiers regularly levelled cities, towns and villages causing great numbers of innocent civilians to die horrifically claiming it was all part of the war.

THE MY LAI MASSACRE 1968 -- The worst case of American War Crimes -- A company of American Soldiers murdered nearly 500 Vietnamese civilians  --- note: The Court Martial Transcripts were 'sickening' to read -- it showed the random execution of babies, men. women and children along with sexual assaults and other perverse brutalities.

Neighbouring CO LOY another village massacre had 100 citizens wiped out.

During 1965 - 1973 trials did take place concerning crimes against Vietnamese civilians -- 241 cases of war crimes were dealt with and alleged against US troops.  36 court martial's were set up --- 201 US soldiers and 77 marines were convicted of serious crimes.

AMERICA'S DIRTY WARS and Practices -- These are exposed on a webpage and level acts of Abuse, the framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal. the framing of Elmer Pratt -- Prisoner abuse -- The Bradley Manning abuses -- The Lynne Stuart Case and oodles more that we cannot cover here -- go to  www.projectsalam.org  for more on this.

THE AFGHAN MASSACRE 2012 ---- One US Soldier, a Sergeant, kills 16 people and nine of them were children.... and three were mothers. Sixteen civilians shot at night in their beds. The rampage by a soldier stationed in Afghanistan who was there to protect them has set back relations to an all time low apart from outraging the ordinary people. There was talk of the soldier going on trial in Afghanistan where he would most likely go to the hangman.  However, it has now been revealed that the Americans have whisked him away back to the USA so as not to have a diplomatic incident over the real fact the death penalty would have been surely given in the light of this crime whether US or not....and getting that changed would have been unlikely.

U.S. AIRMAN CHARGED WITH ASSAULTING JAPANESE BOY --- The incident is said to have happened on the Japanese Island of Okinawa, two weeks after a curfew was called on 52,000 U.S.Troops, which followed after the arrest of two U.S. Sailors accused of raping a woman.  The 24 year old Airman was said to have entered an apartment block and punched a 13 year old boy before trashing a TV set.  It says his escape went wrong and was taken to a Military Hospital.

U.S. SOLDIER ADMITS TO SLAUGHTER OF 16 CIVILIANS -- A Veteran of four combat tours, Staff Army Sergeant  Robert Bales pleaded guilty to having murdered 16 Afghan citizens in cold blood.  In the Military Court it was discovered that the killings were premeditated, but in a move to avoid the death penalty a deal was made with the Prosecutor.  It was heard that he gunned down men, women and children who were completely unarmed.  The 'decorated' soldier is awaiting sentence from the Court Martial, and it is even said that the sentence will include the possibility of parole?

ARMY OFFICER KILLS 13 AT FORT --  A Officer - Medic Corps Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire killing 13 at the Fort Hood Centre in Texas in 2009 has had several delays which finally sees the defendant at a court martial where it is said that he has the authority to cross exam the survivors of his shooting spree....he is facing thirteen counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.

MORE ON THE USA DOUBLE STANDARDS --- The soldier has been named as Staff Sergeant Robert Bales who is now in Kansas -- his lawyer has come forward with the 'get out clause' that of trauma and battle fatigue' despite a US official claiming he was drunk when he went on the massacre?  However, that aside, we have uncovered a similar incident where the US removed the crew of a Military plane that crashed into a cable car in Italy killing twenty people -- the crew were quickly flown back to the USA to avoid a trial and the authorities in Italy before they could do anything to hold the suspects. They later appeared in a US court and received very lenient sentences!!  --- this happened in 1998.  Yet when the US demands to try others from countries like the UK etc, the extradition is granted  which clearly shows a two-faced totally different form of justice -- one for its own, and another for everyone else.

U.S. IN SECRET TRIPS TO FLIRT WITH NORTH KOREA -- Are the American Government running scared? or feeling rather afraid..... The Los Angeles Times reveals that two trips to North Korea have already been made as US Officials try to improve relations with the Koreans as Leader Kim Jong-un makes the Americans nervous over launch tests of nuclear long-range missiles, and openly tells the Press that the USA is a definite enemy.

THE TRAYON MARTIN SCANDAL -- The US Government are reeling as unexpected reaction from an outraged public gathers momentum in Florida. At first they pondered and thought it would fade away, but not this time. Trayon Martin unarmed, was shot dead by a white man assuming status of local neighbourhood defender. He was not charged with the killing and claimed it was done in defence. Bill Lee, the Chief of Police in the Sanford Force has stepped down and calls for Commissioner Mark McCarty to resign abound as protestors mount rallies backed by the Florida Civil Rights Association. NAACP is taking statements from people who have accused Sanford Police of abuse and non-existent investigations. President Obama became involved and went on TV to give a personal statement assuring the people of Sanford that a thorough investigation would be carried out.

USA DEMAND PROBE ON UK BANKS SHOUTING LOUDLY TO CREATE DIVERSION -- A British MP has spoken out against America saying the US is deliberately attempting to damage London's banks in order to hide their own situation and capitalise on it.  John Mann MP said that Britain in turn should be allowed to investigate US Banks over the Libor situation, and reveal their motivations and dirty dealings. He said the UK are showing a weakness in letting the Americans do as they like because of the notion of great friendship so long as one friend is silent?

US GOVERNMENT TO BE SUED IN AIG LAWSUIT --  The US Government are to be sued by the American International Group, who were bailed out during the financial crisis.  It is seriously considering joining the $25 billion lawsuit filed by Starr International in 2011, a one time big shareholder in AIG.  The Companies accuse the US Government of too-onerous terms in the 2008/9 rescue package.

THE HIGH COST IN US POLITICIANS -- It appears that around $3 million dollars of taxpayers cash was used in providing an exclusive club for the Presidents.  A new Congressional Research Service says they spent $3.7 million on the 4 living ex-presidents. In another Report covering 'The misuse of Campaign funds' the Conservative Republican Michele Bachman is being investigated for misuse of campaign funds, which is part of a Federal investigation.

IS THE USA CREATING A DIVERSION ON THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN ACCUSING RUSSIA OF SPYING? -- America has supposedly broken up a spy network they claim work for Russia and the Kremlin.....they arrested eleven people and say the charges are of a criminal nature. They have informed the press that this group were into illegally acquiring US-made micro-electronic components for Russian military spy agencies?  This could well be a ploy by the FBI and CIA to get snoopers off their back, especially in an election year.  Both these Agencies have been known to 'manufacture' evidence and instigate a plot themselves.

THE PRISON CORRECTION SCHEME THAT WAS HIJACKED BY GREED --- The United States Correction Corporation of Georgia is said to be the producer of manufactured goods made by prisoners who cannot be paid for their labour. This nice little earner racks in huge profits -- the prison says that these inmates must not be paid because it might distract them from rehabilitation and education programmes.  Sadly, what is not made clear is that 200 teachers were sacked along with counsellors and librarians.  Prisoners who were being taught to read and write had their lessons etc immediately cancelled, and seventy percent of these were black and Hispanic inmates. It was also found out that serious corporate crime is by contrast allowed to go unimpeded despite it being rife........yet another USA Scandal nicely tucked away.

EXECUTED TEXAS MAN WAS A JUDICIAL BUNGLE AND ERROR -- News has emerged that a man executed in 1989 was not guilty of the crime -- Carlos De Luna was hastily executed in 1989 after an 'unconvincing' trial and a 'budget allowance' lawyer.  A group of students led by Pofessor Liebman investigating the case by painstakingly going over all the evidence that led to his conviction and state murder, found that he could not have been guilty. The report is published under the title 'Los Tocayos; Anatomy of a wrongful Execution '  Another man in prison who has died, Carlos Hernandez who looks identical to De Luna admitted the murder.  Liebman said 'Flaws in the system wrongfully convicted and executed the wrong man, faulty eye witness testimony, shoddy representation by his lawyer and misconduct by the prosecution let this happen'    Of course as it is often said, something like this cannot be reversed or a life be given back, but compensation of around $125million dollars with an additional $23million paid to his family might teach the authorities a lesson...they can always take it out of public taxes!!

USA AUTHORITIES PAY $4.1 MILLION DOLLARS TO STUDENT LEFT IN CELL -- A payout of over 4 million dollars was made to a student arrested for smoking cannabis who was left handcuffed in a windowless cell for five days without anyone attending or going to check on his welfare.  Daniel Chong was made the settlement by the US Government.....he had been taken into custody but told he would not be charged....but no-one came back to the cell....the DEA Drug Enforcement Agency settled the lawsuit on behalf of the American Government.

EXECUTED 14 YEAR OLD GETS NEW TRIAL? --- A coloured boy of 14, executed in the USA seventy years ago is to have a retrial (despite the state already killing him).  George Stinney 14, was 'convicted' of killing two white girls it is said.....but Lawyers examining the case say that his conviction was 'tainted' by those wanting a guilty verdict in the Justice system and the scant evidence they provided.  He was the youngest person to be put in the 'Electric Chair',,,,,and even in 1944 there was an outcry over this.  To show how bad the trial was, it lasted less than a day....and because he failed to convince them where he was at the time of the killing he was found guilty....most likely because of racial bigots'....who at that time separated blacks.

Update: It was announced that 14yr old George Stinney has now received a pardon?  'Big Deal!'  I suppose America think they've atoned for what they did.......they murdered a boy.....and then give him a meaningless piece of paper issued by the the authorities!

TEXAS EXECUTES 500TH INMATE after resumption of death penalty in 1982.....The lawyer for the prisoner Maurie Levin uttered his sadness at Texas and the USA 'I look forward to the day when we recognise  that this pointless and barbaric practice has no place in a civilized society'......sadly, civilization is not here, not with the Americans or Asian Countries.......they've hardly moved on from counting bricks and painting by numbers!

LOUISIANA HOODWINKS HOSPITAL PURCHASE --  Because the drug issue was 'sensitive' the State of Louisiana Department of Corrections (prison) bought a death penalty drug without informing the hospital that it was intended for use in a lethal injection.  They chose not to inform the hospital because of opposition and the EU withholding on these substances for killing people.

FREED INNOCENT MAN DIES ONE DAY AFTER RELEASE -- Luckily for the Public Purse, David Ranta who'd spent 23 years in jail for a crime he did not commit died of an heart attack just 24 hours after his release.  The Judge reviewing his case said that 'the police investigation that led to his conviction of the murder of a Rabbi in New York was seriously flawed'           Even though he could have sued for millions in compensation, he has been denied this and suffered at the hands of the American Judicial system and Law Enforcement.....who will quietly shove this away having escaped paying.

MAN FREED AFTER 30 YEARS -- Yet another US Authorities bungle that could have seen an innocent man die.  Glenn Ford from Louisiana was freed from prison by a Judge who on reading the original court conviction found that there was a striking lack of evidence to support that decision.  It also revealed that he was at the time represented by inexperienced defence lawyers and the unconstitutional suppression of evidence by the court and prosecutors at the time, (none of whom are named).

DEATH ROW BROTHERS FREE AFTER 30 YEARS -- Two brothers  were cleared of rape and murder after being convicted 30 years previously and sentenced to death.  Brothers Henry Mc Collum and half-brother Leon Brown were cleared after new DNA evidence showed they did not carry out the murder of Sabrina Buie in Carolina.   They were boys at the time the court convicted them, 19 yrs and 15 yrs......hopefully they will receive a multi-million payout from the US Government?  (perhaps a minimum of $120 million each or more)

INNOCENT MAN 30 YEARS IN JAIL IS FREED -- Ricky Jackson was convicted of a killing on the testimony of a 12 year old witness who was coached by police to give false testimony.  The witness long after the trial, came forward and admitted the statement made was false.  Jackson was convicted of aggravated murder in 1975 of a money-order collector in Cleveland, Ohio.  Eddy Vernon the boy witness, now 51, confessed that he never saw the attack or killing and his whole testimony was prepared by the police.  The reason he gave for not coming forward was that the cops had said they would arrest his parents if he changed his story, and he feared that they would be fitted-up.     Well, its another payout, and at a million a year plus it should be around $35 million dollars that the US government owe him at least....or as seen before, perhaps $120 million, which is more like it.

USA LOSES OUT ON GARY MCKINNON EXTRADITION -- Gary McKinnon a UK citizen has spent ten years being hounded by the USA for 'hacking in the Pentagon' - which could probably be done by many hackers. He did this from a small flat in Britain...never on American soil....but the FBI came after him.  Britain has at last seen sense and refused his extradition.....however, one might suggest that the USA stop bullying and concentrate on their old enemy JAPAN....in just 55 years after it was defeated, they have now become an economic giant about to surpass the USA....instead of weapons, they now have a means to give the Americans some real grief... and quite possibly they intend to do that.

USA EXTRADITION TARGETS ANOTHER BRITISH COUPLE ---  Once again the US authorities have grabbed some UK citizens, claiming they were involved in a $1 million dollar expenses fiddle.....Bankrupt couple Paul and Sandra Dunham are said to be facing death behind bars in a dispute over work expenses.  They were arrested with British Police help at their home in Northampton in November 2012.  Groups against this American Anglo Agreement say that this is a civil case...which has been turned into a criminal accusation by the USA.... and apparently in 2011 Mr Dunham was indicted on 13 counts of fraud and money laundering by a Grand Jury in Maryland.  His wife was indicted on eight counts of fraud...the possible sentence being 240 years!  It is also stated that British Magistrates allowed the extradition to proceed!

THE USA AND THE EVIL THEY DARE NOT FACE UP TO -- For a country that aspires to freedom and the right to express oneself, the USA come tops in bigotry.   They slaughtered Indian communities and abused the children in schools forbidding them to adopt any of their culture.  Kids were beaten and forced to swear allegiance to the American flag in classrooms, those that went against this sometimes disappeared and years later found in secret unmarked graves.  Officials on behalf of the government and agencies actively took part in these atrocities often helped by the Church.  History books were altered and many leave this part out in favour of depicting a more false and perverted face of reality.  America has done this for years and despite changes, the old America has not gone away, just hidden, and what cannot be witnessed is now cleverly covered up by the government.

CHILD ABUSE AND SEX CASE -- 70 ARRESTED ---  A Child sex and abuse Investigation  has arrested over seventy individuals including, a police officer, nurse and boy scout leader in the City of New York.   The Police were on the trail of those individuals who trafficked in child abuse images, downloading, exchanging and loading photos to others in the 'underground' network of paedophiles.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement led the investigation and ended with one of the largest round-ups of 70 men and one woman.  They seized around 600 desktop pc's, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

NUDE VIOLINIST SUES POLICE FOR ARREST -- The man 25yr old Matthew TMglej accused the authorities of excessive force and violated his First Amendment Rights and is seeking around $1 million dollars.  He was nabbed by police when he was playing his violin naked outside the Portland Federal Courthouse in 2014.

THE MENGELES AFFAIR and the AMERICANS -- Dr Mengeles was the most loathed man in the Nazi Unit who performed horrific surgery on children during World War 11 at the Auswitz Concentration Camp where thousands of Jews were murdered at the orders of Hitler.  He escaped to the USA where the authorities hid him and made use of him.  He was never brought to justice because of the American intervention and even hid from the Nazi hunters who were searching for him.

US GOVERNMENT AND THE GUANTANAMO BAY SCANDAL :  A scandal that doesn't go away despite many attempts by the USA to fob off its critics.  A hunger strike has now brought this appalling special prison back into the World headlines as it now embarrasses the Americans yet again.  The notorious detention building and site has 166 detainees on hunger strike, and the US Administration is eager to keep prying eyes and observers well away.  Reports of force-feeding are emerging as it is reported that they took 23 of the weakest prisoners and secured them to a chair by their wrists, arms, legs, chests and heads, said to be a nasty and ugly procedure of forcing a tube into the victim's nose after gagging them and pushing it so it goes into their stomachs......resulting in blood pouring from their nostrils.  Defence Lawyers for the detained have met with resistance and silence from the US government......many of their clients have never been charged, one having been imprisoned for eleven years without a trial..........this is the true face of American Justice!

US FINANCIAL CHIEF TO BE SENTENCED -- The report says that Autonomy's former Financial Chief, Sushovan Hussain is facing a prison sentence of up to 9 years for his role in the 'Hewlett Packard Scandal' and the sale!  It said he was found guilty in a San Francisco court.

SACKLER FAMILY 'OFFERS UP TO $12 BILLION DOLLARS' TO MAKE THE LAWSUITS GO AWAY' -- and in America this is the way to end a problem if you're rich, just buy your opponents off....this item concerns the 'Opioid Crisis' and says that opponents/campaigners battling America' opioid crisis welcomed reports that Purdue Pharma, the drug maker owned by the billionaire Sackler family has made the huge offer to settle 'thousands' of lawsuits linked to its controversial painkiller drug OxyContin.  Legal documents allege that Purdue aggressively marketed prescription opioids while 'misleading' prescribers and consumers about the risks from their prolonged use.

INNOCENT WOMAN GETS $3 MILLION DOLLARS AFTER WRONGFUL IMPRISONMENT -- The American woman, Cathy Woods was jailed for a murder she did not commit but spent 35 years in jail due to a wrongful conviction and American Jury.  due to former police detectives for the City of Reno who she said coerced her into signing a false confession from her while she was a patient at a Louisiana mental hospital in 1979 and interestingly, her initial conviction in 1980 was overturned, and then in 1984 convicted again and upheld in 1988....and what of those Reno detectives?    nothing!

DESPICABLE SADISTIC COP BROUGHT TO BOOK --In what can only be described as a 'bizarre' case, the arrest of Officer John Rabago was ordered when it was discovered that he forced a homeless man to lick a urinal to avoid arrest, and another suspect to stick his head down a toilet bowl in Honolulu.

POLICE OFFICER ON MURDER CHARGE AFTER BEDROOM SHOOTING INCIDENT --- Former Fort Worth Police Officer, Aaron Dean was charged with murder after shooting a black woman through a window of her home the report says.  It says he resigned within hours of the shooting and was out of custody in four hours after posting bail?  It also says he approached Atatiana Jefferson's home where she was caring for her 8yr old nephew and fired through the window at the back of the house but had not identified himself as a police officer, but maintains he shouted to those inside to show their hands?  and there is no evidence on his police cam showing him knock on the front door?  In an update on this Texas shooting 'police are now saying they found a weapon in the house'.....which looks highly suspicious and cover up.

UK FAMILY MISTREATED BY THE US GOVERNMENT --- The report says that a British family were held by US Immigration officials after accidentally crossing the border while trying to avoid hitting an animal on the road.  The British family were detained after driving across the US-Canada border south of Vancouver while on holiday.  They were being held at a 'family centre' and have alleged that they were mistreated while in detention.

UK STUDENT SUBJECTED TO STRIP FOR VISA ERROR -- Yet another unsettling case against the Americans, as the report says that a British teenager was strip-searched in an American jail, leaving her terrified and traumatised by the experience.  This is all because she has the wrong kind of visa says the report. This is the kind of thing one would expect of Australia, North Korea and Singapore where corruption is the normal in their officials.  It also cost her £3,000 to get this experience, and Rebecca Leighton's trip to Texas to be on a ranch has revealed too much.  It says she spent a night in jail and was virtually forced to 'apologise' for the mistake.  She said she was taken to a jail and strip-searched.  Since that she has been deported and forbidden to enter the USA for five years, and fined.....America is pure trash, so she lost nothing there.

US WANTS EXTRADITION TO WORK ONE WAY and that has been established as America comes first and 'you will do as we say' according to their Justice Department who have turned the UK down after the wife of a US envoy relies on diplomatic immunity despite crashing into a British subject with her car and killing him.  Although attempts have been made to have Ann Sacoolas return to the UK to answer charges of careless driving causing death, she was advised by the US Secretary of State to remain as he turned down the extradition request.  Justice for the Dunn family and killed son, Harry looks bleak...yet Mike Pompeo insists that Britain observes and cooperates with US requests or else?

POLICE OFFICER INVESTIGATED OVER THE ARREST OF CHILDREN --- A Florida Police Officer, Dennis Turner, is under arrest after he was found arresting two children aged six and eight, in separate episodes at their school it was reported.  The officer has been suspended pending the outcome of an 'internal' investigation said Police Chief Orlando Rolon.  Details of the incident were suppressed.

THE USA CHILD ABUSE PRIESTS --- and we have two here, first on the starter block is Jesuit Priest Reverend Donald McGuire who it is said abused one boy more than a 1000 times, and was already suspected of abusing boys and getting away with it.  The report said cover up after cover up by the authorities continued until the final straw broke the camel's back and he was finally jailed for 25 years for abusing boys of 11ys of age.  It took a lawsuit in San Francisco by one of the molested boys, Robert Goldberg to move the whole thing along.  It is stated that the Priest died in prison in 2017.   In the second case, Catholic Priest, Michael Bransfield, the Bishop of Wheeling-Charleston in West Virginia was forced to retire in 2018 over allegations of 'sexual misbehaviour' as they put it...and afterwards it was revealed that the 'disgraced' bishop spent around $4.6 million dollars of church funds on his home.....not bad eh?

PRIEST RETRIAL IN ABUSE CASE --- Nearly twenty years after the Roman Catholic Priest  Abuse Scandal exploded in 2002, only one church official has ever gone to prison: Monsignor William Lynn, secretary for clergy in the Philadelphia archdiocese.  After an Appeals Court overturned his 2012 conviction, Lynn 69, is set to be retried on a single 'child endangerment' count.

FORMER BALTIMORE MAYOR JAILED OVER BOOK FRAUD -- The report says that Mayor Catherine Pugh was sentenced to three years in jail for 'fraudulently' selling her self-published children's books to non-profit organisations to fund and promote her political career.  This may sound strange at first, but here's the thing,' thousands of her books were sold to schools but were never delivered'  and were re-sold for further profit!  The Democratic Politician apologised to the Federal Court before being sentenced.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ADVISOR SENT TO JAIL --- Yes, even the President's staff, lawyers etc, go to jail when you can get them booked for offences....and Donald Trump's long time friend and advisor Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in jail for 'Lying to Congress' after it was discovered he had been 'witness tampering' and obstructing justice....all of which he denied at the time of course.  The 'Dirty Trickster' as he was so-named, was prosecuted for 'covering up for the president' and his lies were a threat to our democracy said Judge Amy Jackson.  She furthermore added that Stone 'deliberately tried to stop the investigation or prosecution' and prosecutors called on him to be jailed for 9 years,....but that didn't happen of course, and the man has actually requested a retrial!

Update on the above.....they say corruption runs deep, and it now appears in 'the Stone case' that more than a 1000 former US Justice Dept' officials have called for the resignation of the Attorney General, William Barr, over his handling of the Advisor trial.....smell something here?

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE STOLE $1.2 MILLION DOLLARS --- The report says that a former South Texas Juvenile Justice Department employee, Gilberto Escaramilla, was arrested for theft after he confessed to stealing $1.2 million dollars worth of fajitas over a period of nine years.  The report says that he was fired when suspicions were validated and investigators found that he intercepted county food deliveries to send to his own customers.

BLACK MAN SHOT IN BACK BY POLICE -- NO CHARGES LIKELY? -- Another police shooting, this time of black man Keith Lamont Scott in North Carolina.  He suffered fatal gunshots to the back and abdomen.  It is reported that he was killed in the town of Charlotte, by Police Officer, Brentley Vinson.  Police immediately responded by saying 'they had found a gun' (much used in these incidents by police, similar to the 'throw down gun' of the old days), yet the family maintain all he was carrying was a book.  Dash-cam footage shows no sign of a gun and he can only be seen walking away with his hands at his side, then there is four shots and he falls to the ground!  The Police Chief of the town said he does not believe the officer will be charged with a crime!

POLICE CHIEF QUITS AFTER BLACK WOMAN IS SHOT DEAD --- Here we go again, as it reports that the Police Chief quit within hours of this killing.  San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr quit just hours after an officer in his division fatally shot a young black woman supposedly driving a stolen car, one of the latest in a series of racially charged incidents in the past year.  The situation had been mounting in relation to having the Police Chief resign after another earlier shooting of a young black man said to be carrying a knife (by officers)....but at that time the Mayor, Ed Lee supported him for that occasion and this one despite information coming forward that 'three officers had exchanged racist text messages' but were not fired.  The local people were disgusted when the Chief did not start any disciplinary action over it.  And things still worsened when it emerged that the young black woman was shot by a sergeant as another cop was attempting to pull her out of the car.

NEW YORK POLICE 'TOOK BRIBES' TO WAIVE GUN LICENCE CHECKS --- It was reported that Corrupt New York Police Officials accepted cash payments of $6,000 dollars and even sex with prostitutes, in return for waiving security checks on people seeking gun licences said Federal Prosecutors.  The report says the inquiry has cast a harsh light on how people get handgun permits in a city that boasts some of the nation's toughest gun laws?  Prosecutors said that 'a fixer' bribed officers in the 'licensing division' to rubber-stamp many applications without doing any background checks (which are supposed to be obligatory) which are there to discover criminals, mental health issues and other problems that would bar them from having a gun.....the irony here is, that the Mayor of New York said 'we don't want guns to get into the wrong hands' after hearing about the Orlando massacre?

US SECRET SERVICE MAN ON SEX CHARGE --- Back to the Security Services, and the report says that Lee Robert Moore who was based at the Presidential White House appeared before a court in West Palm Beach to face criminal charges.  It says that he was dismissed after being accused of trying to solicit sex from an undercover agent he imagined to be a 14 year old girl.  Investigators found that Moore had engaged in online sex chats while on duty at the White House.  It says that he has been moved to South Florida to face a court there.

US GENERAL CONS £12,000 OUT OF WIDOW --- It is reported that the fraudster posing as an American General is an American national who took the soldier's identity an photos to carry out the fraud on a British woman.  With information easily obtained in the USA by websites and Facebook, the American fraudster was able to con women, especially widows that he was the genuine four star US general.  The real Mark Milley said he tried to warn facebook users that others were using his identity to carry out criminal actions.

US NAVY OFFICER ON SPYING CHARGE --- still with the Services, a Navy Officer with access to sensitive intelligence information is facing charges of spying for another country, possibly China or Taiwan said a spokesperson.  Lieutenant Commander Edward Lin born in Taiwan was arrested and charged with communicating secret information to a foreign government.  It said he had become a naturalised US citizen and that he was an officer in the United States Navy assigned to the headquarters for the Navy's Patrol and Reconnaissance Group, which oversees intelligence-collection activities.

PASSENGER SUES UNITED AIRLINES FOR GBH --- In a disturbing assault which led to a man suffering lost teeth and a broken nose, which left a passenger who was dragged screaming and bloodied from a United Airplane in Chicago is taking the US Airline to court for damages that could cost the airline millions it was said.  The passenger Doctor David Dao was assaulted and dragged down the aisle of the airplane by law enforcement officers it was said, hired by the company.  It was admitted this happened because they were 'over-booked' and this was one of the ways they applied to remove the extra passenger, who turned out to be Dr Dao who refused to get out of the seat which the airline said was reserved for crew members.  Since the horrifying experience, Dr Dao has hired two top personal injury lawyers to sue the airline and hopefully agree to a quick and generous out-of-court settlement.

BALTIMORE POLICE DEPARTMENT SLAMMED FOR SYSTEMATIC FAILINGS --- Revealing too much for this beleaguered Police Department might be a welcome for those not in law enforcement as a report shows that the African-American residents in Baltimore where black man Freddie Gray 'died in the back of a police van' are routinely subjected to unconstitutional arrests and excessive force by the police.  The 163 page Justice Department Document says that the Baltimore Police Department frequently violates the constitution and Federal Law all too often without being censured. Besides the report on Mr Gray who it says suffered a broken neck in the arrest, no officer was convicted as a result of this.  Eventually after many weeks of protest, six officers were charged, but four trials ended without a conviction....which of course has been the usual outcome to many trials and investigations of manslaughter and police abuse....which is annoying the black population.

MAYOR APOLOGISES AFTER POLICE PULL GUN ON FAMILY --- In yet another police incident, the Mayor of Phoenix has apologised in a bid to quell public anger over a viral video showing police pointing a gun at the black parents of a four year old child in connection with the alleged theft of Barbie doll they said was shoplifted.  The video also catches footage of the officer shouting profanities and drawing his gun. The family at that stage were unaware that one of their young girls had the doll as they left the store.  It was said that the police officers swooped on the family as they neared their vehicle in the car park.  Mayor Kate Gallego said watching the footage made her feel sick as she saw the officers respond in such a way shouting at the family to put their hands up or they would shoot.  'It was so sickening, it made me angry too'  A Lawyer for the family said that the officers committed battery, unlawful imprisonment, false arrest, infliction of emotional distress and violation of the family's civil rights.  He said he would be seeking substantial damages from the force.

OFFICER CHARGED WITH KILLING HIS POLICE CHIEF --- In an about turn case, a Police Officer has been charged with the murder of his Police Chief, Lucky Miller of the Mannford Police Department, Oklahoma.  It was said that Officer Michael Patrick Nealey and the Chief had been staying at the Hilton Hotel on Pensacola Beach for a Law Enforcement conference, and that in the early evening security staff were called to a disturbance because the two men had become disruptive.  Later that evening hotel staff called the local Sheriff because the men had begun fighting.  But on the arrival of the Sheriff and his deputies it was found that The Chief was dead and the room smelled of alcohol.  Officer Nealey was charged the next morning with the killing of Chief Miller.

POLICE OFFICER SUSPENDED OVER CORPSE INCIDENT --- An unidentified Police Officer was alleged to have been caught on CCTV fondling a dead woman's breasts it was reported, and was suspended immediately.  The Los Angeles Times said that the act had been filmed after an incident in which a person had taken an overdose.  When the cop's partner went to the patrol car to retrieve an item, the accused officer disabled his body camera and allegedly fondled the dead woman.  Beyond that, the force refused to give any more information.

COP QUITS AFTER LIES HE TOLD --- The report says that a US Police officer resigned after admitting that he lied about receiving a cup of coffee at a Kansas branch of MacDonald's with the words 'f**king Pig' written on it.  Herington's Police Chief Brian Hornaday posted a message on the Internet with the picture of the cup and message, but soon took it down and commented that the Officer no longer works in his Police Department.  He told reporters that MacDonald's had nothing to do with it and said that the whole thing had been fabricated by a police officer who no longer worked at the precinct.....it was said that the Officer had only been with the Department for two months.

US MARINES OFFICER FINED FOR DRINK DRIVING -- it says that Colonel James Schnelle the head of a contingent of US Marines based in the northern city of Darwin was relieved of his command after police caught him drink-driving on a night out.  The Pentagon said they had removed the Colonel because of 'a loss of trust and confidence' -- the Court in Darwin fined him 500 Australian dollars and suspended his driving licence for six months.

US URGED TO STOP IMPRISONING THE POOR --- The report says that poverty is extensive in the United States and getting worse under the President Trump administration, whose policies seem aimed at removing the safety net from millions of poor people while rewarding the rich and privileged, a human rights investigator found.  Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty, called on the US authorities to provide solid social protection and address underlying problems, rather than 'punishing and imprisoning the poor'  He said under Trump the welfare and health benefits were being slashed and his tax reforms awarded 'financial windfalls' to the mega-rich and large companies.

FORMER US ATTORNEY GENERAL WAS IN NRA'S POCKET --- Another kind of bribery is eluded to here as the report says that a Democrat who helped overturn assault weapons bans before being ousted out of office as Ohio's Attorney General, has said he 'was in the pocket of the National Rifle Association' to protect his political career and now regrets it.  Marc Dunn has urged others in his position to live by their principles, and not as he did as an elected official.

POLICE UNIONS UNDERMINE DISCIPLINARY SYSTEM --- A Police Chief has spoken out after criticisms were levelled at the way brutality and murder cases committed by officers were handled.  She told reporters that there were several times she was over-ruled by unions who put the offending officer back on the beat, even if there had been up to 17 or more complaints made about them.  She said she had fired several and later found out they had been re-instated due to union pressure which she was unable to take on.  Lawyers for the union also worked hard on overturning cases of officers who had clearly shown them unsuitable, but lawyers do it just for the money, they have no interest in social or morality, and they're paid an awful lot to go against disciplinary judgements time and time again, making it harder to get rid of bad cops.

CUSTODY DEATH POLICE OFFICERS FACE TRIAL -- Even though the Union and Lawyers for them made attempts to halt legal procedures going ahead, a Judge 'rejected' motions to drop charges against six Baltimore Police Officers charged over the death of a black man from an injury in custody.

DEPUTY SHERIFF LIES ABOUT SNIPER INCIDENT --- It was reported that a Deputy Sheriff who claimed to have been shot at by a sniper in a car park, was lying.  Policeman Angel Reinosa was said to have fabricated the whole story when it was found that investigators went over the area inch by inch, but no bullets or casings were discovered.  Initially, the Deputy said that a round hit the top of his shoulder, damaging his uniform shirt but failed to penetrate his body.  After a lengthy interview the Deputy eventually admitted making up the story and using a knife to cut two holes in his shirt.  The incident had led to the call out of a SWAT team and blocked off roads around the Lancaster LA County Sheriff's Department and an all-night search to find the sniper.  The Deputy is now facing criminal charges.

US BOY SCOUT ASSOCIATION PAYS OUT $300 MILLION TO SETTLE ABUSE CLAIMS --- It is reported that the 'bankrupt' Boy Scouts of America have agreed a plan which will allow the 'tainted' organisation to survive.  Yet, this leaves many unanswered questions how it will resolve the tens of thousands 'sexual abuse claims' they have lodged against them.  The plan is a mere $300 million dollars contribution from the Boy Scouts of America to be placed with 250 local councils.  Lawyers for the claimants say that the Boy Scout organisation said they are not willing to dig deep enough for the deep pain they caused' -- 'the plan is woefully and tragically inadequate'  The case reveals that more than 90,000 sexual abuse claims against boy scouts have been filed in the bankruptcy action.    (3/3/2021)

KILLER POLICE OFFICER HAD HISTORY OF RACISM -- The report says that several black motorists testified that the white Police Officer who fatally shot a black teenager, used racial slurs and excessive force during road traffic checks and stops prior to the 2014 killing of the black teenager.  They said it was obvious that the patrolman enjoyed showing how he felt when he had a black man 'trapped' in his private game where other officers either looked away or did nothing.

COP ARRESTED IN THE GEORGE FLOYD KILLING --- Currently in the news, Police officer Derek Chauvin the cop who knelt on the neck of the suspect Mr Floyd for eight minutes, resulting in the black man's death, was arrested and charged with manslaughter and various other such interpretations of murder, all of which a former federal prosecutor says that the odds are against successfully convicting a police officer for murder. He said as of 2019, there had been only 35 convictions against police, almost all for manslaughter or negligent homicide, not murder.  Echoing this, Professor Butler said since 2005 around 100 police officers in the United States have been charged with murder for using deadly force in the line of duty, but most of those officers walked free, the charges were dismissed or they were acquitted. It says that four other officers at the scene have been dismissed from the Minneapolis Police Department too.  Disgraced Cop Chauvin has inadvertently put himself in the history books for being 'the cop that broke the camel's back and highlighted racism and police brutality to the world' in such a way that riots and protests have begun worldwide and not only in the US.....the ant-police movement are in full swing...and perhaps the truth about cops will now be exposed on a level that every cop feared!.....but not thought possible.

WE CAN TELL YOU ON THIS SITE THAT USA COPS TOP THE LEAGUE IN THIS AREA...and the cases outnumber any other country on the web.

PRISON GUARDS IN FALSIFYING RECORDS AND CONSPIRACY --- The report says that two Prison Officers on the night Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, have been formally charged with 'falsifying prison records and conspiracy'.  Guards, Toval Noel and Michael Thomas are said to have fabricated details to 'hide' that they were sleeping and browsing the Internet, and that they failed to check on the prisoner for almost eight hours on their watch.  Millionaire Epstein died in a New York cell while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.

WELLS FARGO IN SOFTWARE ERROR? --- the report says that a software glitch has led to hundreds of customers of the US bank losing out on government loan assistance they were due....which may have directly contributed to hundreds of people losing their homes.  The computer malfunction at Wells Fargo saw 'the denial of hundreds of mortgage modifications' which has affected at least 625 people, 400 of which who did subsequently lose their homes.  Information says that the 'error' occurred 'multiple times' between April 2010 and October 2015...and the company say they have set aside $8 million dollars to cover its customers' losses.

US PENTAGON PREPARES FOR RUSSIAN WAR --- The report says that the United States is pressing European Allies to prepare more Nato battalions, ships and planes for combat to shore up Nato's deterrence against a potential Russian attack.  The US Secretary of Defence, Jim Mattis has planned to go to Brussels to meet with European defence ministers to discuss his plans to increase the military presence.   The plan he is taking would require Nato to have 30 land battalions, 30 air fighter squadrons and 30 Navy ships ready to deploy within 30 days of being put on alert.  He said 'We have an adversary (Russia) that can move quickly into the Baltics and Poland in a ground attack, and we don't have the luxury of taking months to mobilise our response' ---- China wasn't mentioned, but no doubt they were taking this into consideration.

US JUDGE TELLS BANK OF CHINA TO HAND OVER ACCOUNT DETAILS --- It says that China is 'affronted' by the fact that a New York Judge has ordered The Bank of China to hand over details of Chinese bank accounts used by 'a counterfeiting gang that allegedly sold millions of dollars of 'fake Gucci handbags' and wallets in the USA.  Legal advisors say the decision could have far-reaching impacts on the ability of US Courts to extract information about criminal activity from Chinese banks, which serve as 'safe havens' for counterfeiters and extensive  money laundering on a large scale.  China has fiercely exploded in words by saying this is a challenge to their sovereignty....triggering political attention on both sides.  However, prosecutors remain adamant that Major State-run Chinese banks are frequently used by gangs of  counterfeiters to move their ill-gotten gains beyond the reach of Western Law Enforcement.

NUNS SPENT $500,000 OF SCHOOL CASH IN VEGAS --- The report said that two nuns  have been accused of embezzling around $500,000 dollars from a Catholic School where they worked as teachers....only to spend it on Las Vegas gambling trips.  Sisters Mary Kreuper and Lana Chang, who taught at the school in California, allegedly spent almost ten years taking money from an account holding tuition fees and donations.  It says that both nuns have recently retired from the St James Catholic School in the city of Torrance, near Los Angeles.  It says that they will not face criminal charges by the police as the matter will be taken up by the Archdiocese of Los Angelese.

CIA CONSIDERED USING EXPERIMENTAL TRUTH SERUM --- It is said that shortly after 9/11, the CIA considered using an experimental truth serum it hoped would force terror suspects to talk about planned attacks.  After months of research, the agency decided that a drug called 'versed', a sedative often prescribed to reduce anxiety, was 'possibly worth a try'.....but in the final outcome covertly, the CIA decided not to consult or ask government lawyers to approve its use?  The American Civil Liberties Union discovered the existence of the programme, which had now been referred to as 'Project Medication' in a classified report obtained under a Judge's order.  The document explains how it was that the CIA came to torture prisoners against the law.  It tells of staff and nurses who were directly involved in the interrogations.

US POLICE, RAPE VICTIM, AND INJUSTICE --- A sickening tale of a victim disbelieved and sent to prison by the system she hoped would protect her rights....and cops who abused her trust by the use of coercion.  This account will not seem rare to many others that have been in the situation of going to the police to report a rape.  Nikki Yovino was one of them, a student, and was sexually attacked at a house party.  She was 18, and was studying biology at the Sacred Heart University in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Like many students she went to a party, but at this one she was raped by two boys from the University....little did she realise that on reporting her ordeal to the Bridgeport Police that nearly two years later she would be banged up in jail for changing her story for 'making false allegations' ---  She now realises that her trust was violated by police in subsequent interrogation rooms as they manipulated her into a confession that would almost destroy her. She said she was assigned Detective Walberto Cotto Jnr to her case, and that his sympathy for her plight waned fast.   Instead of being on her side she found that he was intent upon finding holes in her account of events and managed to invent a motive...in that she lied about having sex with the two boys in the bathroom because she liked one of them....but this was not all...he even lied about the existence of tapes of the party that would disprove her story.  He kept going on saying he now knew what happened over and over suggesting that she had consented until she relented under massive pressure.... and thought maybe she had.  She said it was so intimidating, and sadly coming up against more pressure from the solicitors who said they'd get a conviction, she accepted a plea deal to go into custody for one year, just to get it all over with!

NAVY CAPTAIN DISMISSED OVER ALARM --- A Captain who caused alarm on a US Navy aircraft carrier was 'fired' by his superiors it is said over his panic of coronavirus Covid-19 having sent a memo pleading for help to too many people.  Acting Navy Secretary, Thomas Modly said that Captain Brett Crozier had 'demonstrated extremely poor judgement' in the middle of a crisis.

US REGULATOR FINES EQUIFAX $650 MILLION DOLLARS --- it is reported that the credit-reporting firm Equifax had to payout a record $650 million dollars fine in relation to a 2017 data breach that affected millions of US and UK citizens.  The regulator who investigated the company said that 'Equifax failed to publicly declare the incident for 40 days while a former data chief at the company sold off his stock options'  The regulator said that hackers did get Personal data in the raid.

CNN SUES THE PRESIDENT --- It is reported that CNN is suing Donald Trump after the network's chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, was banned from Press conferences.  It appears that Mr Acosta's Press Pass was suspended after his confrontation with the President when he asked Mr Trump about his language surrounding migrants heading to the US border, resulting in a heated exchange.

TRUMP, THE LAWYERS AND DIRTY TRICKS --- The use and corrupting of law, power and the abuse of it, is looked at in this article covering several accounts that contain one core theme...... and it comes from Trump's Lawyers who were engaged in 'composing a secret 20 page letter to special counsel, Robert Mueller urging him to assert that the President cannot be forced to testify arguing that he has 'absolute authority over all federal investigations'...which means whatever he did, however odd or unlawful it may seem, he could not commit it because the immunity covers this (shades of Nixon here)....and lawyer John Dowd was behind it, yet later resigned from Mr Trump's team. It was not long after that, Trump's legal team said 'abuse of power is not a crime' when they were attempting to have the impeachment thrown out against him, saying it was 'a perversion of the constitution'....and of all things saying it was 'rigged'....and they should know enough about that kind of things themselves with the letter to Mueller.  Trump's lawyers contended that 'even if he were to have abused his power in 'withholding' military assistance to Ukraine, it would not be impeachable because it did not violate a specific criminal statute' -- and this purely relies on 'interpretation'....and lawyers have that covered knowing they can 'muddy' the waters so to speak, or even pick the right Judge who has leanings in their favour.  One of Trump's main lawyers is Rudy Giuliani, a man that could argue his way out of a paper bag, and get the jury to believe he was nowhere near it on the date in question.....but lawyers come and go on Mr Trump's team, some are pushed, others who don't do as he wants are called traitors, and some appear to change sides....which is not a good trait in lawyers...and really shows that they should not be trusted at all.  Trump has wealth, and wealth buys lawyers, and their principles too!

TRUMP FAMILY SUED FOR CHARITY'S 'EXTENSIVE' LAWBREAKING --- This report says that New York's Attorney General is suing Donald Trump, three of his children and his charitable foundation, alleging 'persistently illegal conduct' at the non-profit company including support for the President's 2016 election campaign.  Barbara Underwood, the Attorney General, asked a State Judge to dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation, and impose bans on Trump, his sons Donald Jnr and Eric, and his daughter from holding leadership roles in New York charities.  She said that a 21 month investigation begun by her predecessor, uncovered 'extensive unlawful political coordination' by the Foundation with Mr Trump's campaign, as well as 'repeated and wilful self-dealing' to benefit Mr Trump's personal and business interests. The Lawsuit filed in the state Supreme Court in Manhattan, is seeking $2.8 million dollars of restitution plus penalties, a 10 year ban on Mr Trump serving as a director of a New York non-profit organisation, and one-year bans for each of his children named in the lawsuit.

TRUMP SUED BY TRUMP UNIVERSITY --- it is reported that Donald Trump is named as 'a defendant' in the class action lawsuit brought in 2010 by customers of Trump University, who argue that real estate courses they participated in did not deliver what was promised.  Mr Trump's Attorney, Daniel Petrocelli told the Judge he is seeking a postponement in view of the presidential elections.  The Fraud trial is now being compromised said a court insider, its unprecedented for a president-elect to be facing such allegations.  A lawyer for the Trump University students said that Donald Trump 'had already tried to delay the fraud trial once, when it was agreed that the hearing would take place after the election was over?

RADIO HOST SACKED FOR STANDING UP TO TRUMP --- Abuse of power comes to mind yet again, besides undue influence as a Radio station 710 KNUS described as a conservative station, fired programme host, Craig Silverman half-way through his show for criticising Donald Trump and airing a segment about his lawyer, Roy Cohn who represented the Trump family in the 1970's, but was 'disbarred' for ethical violations.  Apparently, and not unexpected, the Radio station is owned by the Salem Media Group...and '100% behind Donald Trump'

And coming back to Lawyers and the Judiciary:

MAN WITH SLEEPING LAWYER ADMITS FRAUD --- The report says that a man who won a new trial 'because his lawyer was asleep' in the courtroom during proceedings, eventually admitted fraud at his new trial.  James Nassida admitted to wire and bank fraud in the Pittsburgh court.  It was said that he and his sister led a scheme to inflate borrower income and assets to obtain millions of dollars in fraudulent loans.

WEINSTEIN LAWYER QUITS AS NEW CLAIMS AGAINST HER CLIENT ARRIVE --- It says that a prominent US lawyer has announced she is no longer representing Harvey Weinstein as he confronts sexual harassment claims.  Lisa Bloom announced her resignation on social media, and Lanny Davis, a lawyer who was also working with Mr Weinstein is no longer advising the film producer and TV mogul.  And there was also a resignation from the Weinstein Board by Marc Lasry.....and as the ship sank, billionaire Ziff and Tim Sarnoff executives are also leaving!  They were all there at the beginning when they thought they were backing a winner (with immense power and influence) but self preservation and reputation was not something they wanted ruining.....or willing to compromise.

E-MAIL EVIDENCE IN CHURCH ABUSE RULED OUT BY JUDGE --- A Judge has ruled that hundreds of emails detailing efforts by American Football club New Orleans Saints to help the area's Roman Catholic archdiocese amid a clergy sexual abuse crisis are 'private' and 'should stay 'secret'.....the emails emerged as part of a lawsuit against the Church.  Lawyers for the abuse victims said it is only another measure which is aiding the Church in 'concealing its crimes'

NEW ASSAULT CASE BY POLICE ADDS FUEL TO PROTEST MOVEMENT --- one would have thought the anti-police sentiment was enough to make the police realise that a change was coming.....but no, as it was reported that there had been another police incident in Louisiana.  This was another beating of a black man, Dale McGlothen, by four police officers in the northern area of the state.  Whether this had been suppressed remains to be verified? as it took place in the city of Shrevesport on the 5th of April a month earlier than the Loyd incident in New York (and Eric Garner's death was still in the minds of New Yorkers).  It was of course seen on video and the scene lasted four minutes, in which it can be seen that four officers wrestle Mr McGlothen to the ground, and at least one of those officers can be seen punching him repeatedly while one of the others is using a baton, and he died the next day in hospital.  So far, there has been no arrests?   (12/6/2020)

TWO OFFICERS CHARGED WITH ASSAULT --- Yet again, amid the protests, the world watched as police knocked a man to the ground and then walked by casually taking no notice.  It was reported that Mr Martin Gugino suffered head injuries moments after being shoved out of the way by a contingent of police officers in Buffalo, New York.  There was a crude attempt to sully the injured man by Trump and his followers, but it was obvious that the man made no attempt to attack or pose a threat to them.....and he was pushed to the floor in seconds, and there was blood visible coming from his head wound as he lay there on the ground.....and if this is the way the police go about doing things, then a change is needed, and we here have been saying so for years.......but will it happen?    (we think not, and a cover up will change the facts)  It should be noted that the man was 75 yrs of age.         (12/6/2020)

COPS SHOOT ANOTHER BLACK MAN DEAD --- Unable to learn anything, it is reported that another cop shot a young black man in the back as he was running away.  The victim is Rayshard Brooks of Atlanta. It is stated that the 27yr old was in his car when two officers pulled him over for a check after it had been reported that a man was asleep in his car, and that happened to be Rayshard Brooks who had no idea that he had little time left to live.  Apparently he failed the breath-test and tried to make his escape which ended in a tussle in which Mr Brooks seized a taser out of one officer's hands.  As he ran the officer chasing, shot him dead.  It says the officer, Garrett Rolfe, was immediately dismissed from the force, and his colleague, officer Devin Brosnan was placed on administrative duties.       (14/6/2020)

Update: A report says that Officer Garrett Rolfe has been charged with murder , plus ten other charges.

ATLANTA POLICE CHIEF RESIGNS AFTER SHOOTING ---- It is reported that after the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, the Police Chief of Atlanta, Erika Shields, has handed in her resignation over the matter, and the following protests that were ignited by the news that another black man had been killed by police.  Lawyers for the Brooks said that the police had no right to use 'deadly force'...especially in the back of the person who could not be posing a threat in this position.    (15/6/2020)

BLACK MAN IS FOUND HANGING FROM A TREE --- The report that a young black man, Robert Fuller 24, has shocked the citizens of Palmdale, California, which prompted hundreds of people to protest and march to the town hall.  It was reported that the body was found hanging from a tree outside the town hall.  It says that an investigation will begin at once, especially as this death in particular is similar to another death of a black man found hanging from a tree in May in Victorville, a desert town just 45 miles east of Palmdale?      (15/6/2020)

BLACK MAN 'WRONGED' BY POLICE SUES COPS --- It is reported that Daylan McLee spent a year in jail as a result of four state troopers who wrongfully arrested him.  Even though he protested he was arrested and spent a year in custody following an incident at a bar in 2016 and at the time denied pointing a gun at one of the officers.  Despite the time he spent in jail, evidence of camera footage was finally brought and it showed him trying to disarm a gunman at the bar.  His lawyers are currently filing a claim in Uniontown, Pennsylvania.    

Update: It appears that Daylan saved a cop at the scene of a crash and rescued officer Jay Hanley who was involved in the vehicle collision, which left the Police Cruiser mangled.......not bad for a man who had a nasty experience with the cops.    (24/6/2020)

To this day the Americans are in denial over atrocities and Government wrongdoing --- one angered American says only fifty per cent of Americans know the truth but prefer to ignore it and claim that it is time to move on, but to deny it is the open door that has no keeper and it is free to begin again.

America has never learned from History, it just creates more!!

FURY AT DAD'S ARREST ON FLAWED FACIAL RECOGNITION --- The report says that a father was thrown into jail when facial recognition software 'wrongly identified' him as a suspect.  It says Police Detectives of the Detroit Police arrested Robert Williams and accused him of stealing five wristwatches worth  over $4,000 dollars from a boutique.  It says that they played a grainy CCTV image of the suspect against a database of driving licence photos before arresting Mr Williams.  He was held overnight before being properly questioned.  They presented him with a CCTV image from the 2018 theft case which showed a heavy set 'Black Man' which they said fitted his description...but suddenly realised it was not him....and said 'Oops, I guess the computer got it wrong'... and he was eventually released?     (26/6/2020)

GOLDEN STATE KILLER IS A COP -- It was revealed that a former US Police Officer admitted being the notorious Golden State Killer.  The former officer, Joseph DeAngelo acknowledged the crimes he did between 1973 and 1986.  He told prosecutors that he would plead guilty to 13 murders and 13 kidnapping charges, despite there being 106 people being attacked by the killer, and some 62 rape crimes.  It was said he was finally tracked down and arrested in 2018 after the authorities used updated DNA techniques.  It says that he as entered a plea deal and will be sentenced in August.   (30/6/2020)

GEORGE FLOYD'S FAMILY ARE SUING POLICE OVER KILLING --- The report says that the family of the man killed by an officer in a neck choke kneeling have filed a lawsuit against the City of Minneapolis and the four other police officers charged in Mr Floyd's death.  The legal move was announced by the family lawyer, and in it, it says that the police officers violated his rights when they restrained him, and that the City too as employers of the officers, allowed a culture of excessive force to go unchecked along with impunity to flourish in its police force.   The family are seeking compensatory and special damages in an amount to be determined by a jury.      (17/7/2020)

COP IN FLOYD CASE ISN'T THAT CLEAN  -- A Report has revealed that the cop, Derek Chauvin, has now been also charged with nine counts of fraud (tax evasion) apart from the killing of George Floyd.  It says he has been charged with his wife over a matter that is over six years in which time they under- reported their joint income by $464,433.  It says there are another six charges involved in aiding and abetting yet to be added to the policeman's case.  It says that he is in jail awaiting the forthcoming trial.    (24/7/2020)

CORRUPTION IS LEVELLED AT PRESIDENT TRUMP --- The report suggests that the President by his actions defined the saying 'that there is two laws, one for the rich, and another for the peasants' --- Democrat Elizabeth Warren branded Donald Trump as 'the most corrupt president in US History' which was fuelled by the presidential order to free Roger Stone a Trump advisor at the White House, who was the sixth aide to be found guilty on charges that he lied to Congress, used obstruction and witness tampering.  He had been due to go to Federal Prison but the Presidential order commutes the jail sentence, and this happened just as a court denied a request to delay Stone's 40 month jail sentence.  It has yet again shone light on a two-system justice at work in America, laying waste to norms and values the USA thought it had.  (12/7/2020)

POP STAR NEIL YOUNG SUES TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN --- It is reported that President Trump's Campaign is being sued for a breach of copyright by superstar Neil Young, who warned Mr Trump he would sue if they continued using his music without permission.  Not being strong on law or principles, the Trump Campaign ignored requests and committed the copyright breach knowingly, which has led Mr Young to file a lawsuit in the US District Court in Manhattan.  Neil said that they had played his songs in their rallies since 2015.   (7/8/2020)

US COP UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR FONDLING CORPSE --- The rather unsavoury report says that a Los Angeles Police Officer is under investigation for allegedly fondling a dead woman's breasts.  It says that the officer who was un-named has been suspended from duty.  It says the incident came to light after a review of body camera footage apparently showed him groping the woman.   (15/8/2020)

SENATOR CLAIMS THAT SLAVERY WAS NECESSARY --- In an amazing announcement made by Republican Senator Tom Cotton, he said that 'slavery was a necessary evil upon which the union was built'.  This was aired as he did an inflammatory interview with the Arkansas Democratic- Gazette, which has not gone down well in many states.   (30/7/2020)

TRUMP SENIOR ADVISOR ON FRAUD CHARGE --- It was reported that the former aide to the US President, the trusted adviser Steve Bannon was arrested with three others for stealing from a fund set up on line that was being contributed by the general public.  The charges relate to him 'receiving' over a million dollars from the fund, which he has since said were 'expenses'....even though he publicly said and promised that 100% of the contributions would go to the project.  This project was the building of the wall idea by Trump for the US-Mexico border....it says he was taken into custody and would be brought before a New York court....all four men have been accused of ripping off the donors, and Mr Trump has quickly distanced himself from the incident and Mr Bannon...saying he didn't approve of a private fund being set up and that it was a responsibility of the State to raise funds.  It should be noted that these men are are powerful and influential.....and you should know where that leads to Judicially......nowhere!          (21/8/2020)

TRUMP ATTEMPTS TO WAVE ASIDE TAX ACCUSATIONS --- In his usual abrupt showman style, Mr Trump could not stop a report that says that the president only paid $750 dollars to the IRS in 2016 and 2017 as revealed by The New York Times.  They also claimed that he paid 'nothing' at all during ten of the previous years!  They also mentioned leaked information of tax returns seen by them which shows clearly that Mr Trump used a catalogue of tax avoidance measures to diminish liabilities on his $2 billion dollar fortune. 

TRUMP CONDEMNS CHINA YET HOLDS A BANK ACCOUNT IN CHINA? --- It was revealed, much to the President's embarrassment that as he hit out at China over the virus, he somehow forgot to tell his fellow Americans that he has a current Chinese Bank account and that he has paid around $300,000 in tax to the communist nation.  It is thought that Chinese media users took delight in making this news go global.

YET ANOTHER COP SHOOTING OF A BLACK MAN --Things have gone from bad to worse as the International News picked up on another cop shooting, with the victim being shot in the back.  The latest man has not been killed this time, but an update on the situation reveals that he is now paralysed from the waist down, which could lead to a massive multi-million payout from the cops and Wisconsin.  It was reported that Mr Jacob Blake, unarmed, was trying to break up a fight between two women on the streets of Kenosha.  Video evidence at the scene shows the police shouting and pointing their guns at Mr Blake. Apparently Mr Blake went to his car and leaned inside the car and an officer grabbed at his shirt, and this was quickly followed by around 7 shots into the vehicle.  Mr Blake slumped forward as the shots hit him in the back which was all witnessed by his his sons.  This disaster for the police image comes just three months after the George Floyd killing, and it proves that there is little being done despite the rhetoric of a flawed President.  Even though there has been talk, much talk...changes in the US look very thin on the ground and one suspects that the authorities would rather have it this way.  The Wisconsin Police Department say that they have put the police concerned on administrative leave while they investigate?       (25/8/2020)

ANOTHER BLACK MAN'S DEATH BY COPS --- It now appears that the cycle of cop incidents and deaths of suspects is set to continue as the US Police seem unable to learn from the situation they have made and continues despite world acknowledgement of the whole thing via filmed footage of terrible police behaviour.  It was often said in earlier days that cops 'hid behind the badge' and used it as a cover to indulge in crime.......the latest victim is Daniel Prude who died on March the 30th, 7 days after cops handcuffed him in Rochester, New York.  It is only now that the evidence has emerged that he was 'hooded'......apparently because he told police he had the covid-19 virus....he was naked and was suffering a mental health episode....the filmed evidence only recently released by the police authorities shows the police pushing the man's head down into the pavement it is claimed.  An investigation has begun, but no officer has been suspended or removed from their duties.....and this marks yet another page into the distrust of the police especially in New York.     (4/9/2020)

COPS PAYOUT $12 MILLION DOLLARS OVER SHOOTING OF BLACK WOMAN --- In yet another dark day of American history, the City Authorities of Louisville, Kentucky, have paid out a record damages award of twelve million dollars on behalf of their police force after shooting a black woman dead.  Emergency medical technician, Breonna Taylor was shot when officers entered her home, she was shot eight times as they burst into her home looking for drugs.  In the damages suit against the police, it was said that officers used 'flawed' information to obtain what they call 'a no knock' warrant to enter the apartment.  It says the substantial payout to a family in a police misconduct case is undoubtedly one of the biggest amounts in such a case.                (16/9/2020)

Update: The latest news on this story is that 'one officer is facing charges'  The report says that a Grand Jury has indicted one of the three police officers involved in the fatal shooting.  Former Detective Brett Hankison faces three counts of 'wanton endangerment' which carries a penalty of up to 5 years in jail.......Detective Myles Cosgrove and Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly were put on administrative leave.  (24/9/2020)

BLACK MAN HELD AT GUNPOINT BY OFFICER SEEKS $2.5 MILLION PAYOUT --- In another police incident in Arizona, a black man who was working at the front desk in a hotel confronted officer Ronald Kerzaya who pulled out his gun and held him at gunpoint, and was detained by him.  The claim for damages of $2.5 million dollars was made by Trevonyae Cumplan against the Temple Police in Arizona.  It was said there was footage of the scene and that it is being studied.  The officer was moved into administration pending an investigation.  (August 29/2020)

US COP KILLS BLACK MAN --- In yet another case, it was reported that a white police officer, Shaun Lucas, of the Wolfe City Police in Texas, shot and killed black man Jonathan Price.  It was said by onlookers that Jonathan was helping to diffuse a domestic disturbance at a city convenience store when Police Officer Shaun Lucas shot him.  People said that a confrontation had occurred and then a shot followed.  The Police said in a statement that Officer Lucas had been arrested and charged with murder.    (7/10/2020)

BLACK MAN SUES TEXAS FOR ONE MILLION DOLLARS --- In yet another racial case against US Cops, Black man Donald Neely is suing the city of Galveston and its police department after two white officers led him by a rope while being on horseback in an arrest.  He is suing the state for a mere $1 million dollars for what he describes as humiliation and fear...it says that photos obtained show him being led on a rope attached to the handcuffs, similar to scenes in the past of slaves in chains....the dark days when cover ups were frequent and deaths very much unexplained....and today, mostly ignored by the people.  It appears that he was arrested for criminal trespass...and he was homeless at the time!       (13/10/2020)

ANOTHER SHOOTING OF A BLACKMAN ENRAGES PEOPLE --- Yet again comes the news of Walter Wallace of Philadelphia who was shot and killed by two white police officers.  It was said that the man held a knife when the police arrived at the scene, and because he wouldn't put it down or stop waving it around, two of the cops opened fire and killed him.  Although unrest and protests now abound over this, it was noted that no cop used a taser which would have resulted in something less fatal, a question the police failed to answer?  (28/10/2020)

THE CASE OF 18YR OLD GEORGE JACKSON is almost forgotten by the US, mainly because they'd rather that this should be so, especially in law enforcement and the Judiciary, which is more focused on how good they look and righteous ignorance they display --- Young Black man George Jackson who was arrested by police for a minor offence, but was persuaded despite a lack of evidence, and innocence, to plead guilty to taking a small part in a gas station robbery....to which he received a 'one year to life' sentence, which of course was wholly wrong and a miscarriage of justice, and it was, because justice and the law set him up.  But this wasn't the end of the young man's bad luck by the US authorities, on the contrary, ten years later and still in prison, and educated now due to reading, he was killed in San Quentin Prison, because he was there! poor George was a victim in August 1971 when he and five others, of which three were prison warders, were killed in a brief but bloody conflict which erupted....George should have never been there, nor put in a position where he lost his life for nothing...the State were responsible through their own corruption.....but they were never prosecuted or paid compensation, the law got away with manslaughter!

TWO US COPS DISMISSED OVER FATAL SHOOTING --- It was reported that two police officers who shot Breonna Taylor have been dismissed by Louisville Police Department in Kentucky.  Ms Taylor was fatally wounded, the police officer who killed her and the officer who prepared the warrant for the 'botched' raid were fired.  The scene particulars were that Ms Taylor's boyfriend was with her when the police burst into her home, fired once, at what he believed to be intruders and three cops responded with 32 shots, six of which hit Ms Taylor -- killing her.

HARVARD BRIBERY CASE -- It was reported that a former fencing coach and businessman were arrested on bribery charges after it was discovered that they aimed to secure the admission of the businessman's sons into the elite US University by cash inducements.  US prosecutors said that former fencing coach Peter Brand accepted more than $1.5 million dollars in exchange for 'helping'  Jie Zhao's sons get into Harvard by recruiting the boys into the Men's Fencing Team.   (17/11/2020)

CADETS AT THE WEST POINT ACADEMY CAUGHT CHEATING --- The report claims that more than 70 students at the elite Military Academy, West Point have been accused of cheating in Maths exams....and this is said to be the worst academic scandal since the 1970's at the same Military Academy.  Initially it was stated that 58 students 'admitted' cheating on their Maths exam.... and Instructors noticed that in the final exam when the cadets made the same error on a returned paper.  It says that having been found out most of the guilty students have been enrolled in a 'rehabilitation programme' and they will be put on probation for the remainder of their time at the Academy.  It also said that some students had resigned and others face 'disciplinary' hearings, which could result in expulsion.  Apparently, the reputation of this elite Academy for young military cadets is 'a cadet will not lie, cheat, steal or tolerate those who do' and that is exactly what has happened here and maybe has done for some time without being discovered?      (23/12/2020)

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS TRY TO BLOCK SALE OF BOOK --- In what looks like a 'Nixon type of move' the White House are trying to stop a biography by former National Security Advisor to the President, John Bolton, falsely claiming that it contains classified information.  The accusation of this attempt to silence was filed in the Federal Court by Lawyer Ellen Knight who worked at The National Security Council as an official. She said she oversaw the pre-publication review and cleared the book legally for release, and can only see this move to stop it as a political move and no other purpose.       (24/9/2020)

US WHISTLEBLOWER REVEALS 'HEAT RAY' TO BE USED ON CONTROLLING CROWDS --- This was revealed by a whistleblower in the US Military who said US officials hoped to use some 'unusual crowd control devices' including a 'heat ray' to deal with protestors outside the White House on the day that President Trump had crowds moved away so he could get a 'photo opportunity' --- the National Guard Major Adam DeMarco said he received an email asking if the DC national guard possessed a long range acoustic device for transmitting loud noises or the heat ray, commonly called 'the active denial system' and he said he didn't have access to either device.  It was said that the heat ray emits a directed beam of energy that causes a burning heat sensation to the target! and Trump wanted both on that 'photo session' (18/9/2020)

TRUMP'S PRESIDENCY ENDS IN CONDEMNATION -- It was reported that President Trump resorted to calling his loyal fans to rise up against his end of office as he claimed he had won and that the election was corrupt and he urged Trump fans to march on the Capital, which resulted in four dead and massive damage caused by a mob fired up by his speech.  It was also said that he will be impeached for a second time even though he will be out of office in just over a week.  Apart from this it is also said that he went to a meeting and requested an election official to 'find 11,780 votes so that he could overturn President Elect Joe Biden's victory.  He also persuaded his lawyers to launch legal challenges citing the votes had been rigged in several states.  Another act was to get assurance that he could 'pardon himself' in case of unseen trouble ahead, and wanted to know what they covered in relation to himself.      (5/1/2021)

TRUMP PURSUED AND IMPEACHED FOR SECOND TIME --- Much is said about this and lawyers fail to understand that when he addressed his audience (followers) he said 'We' must go down to the' and that is the key word, but that apart from his lawyers saying he is entitled to free speech rather muddles the law of incitement....and a report tells us that one of his lawyers has links to the Epstein case and refused to prosecute the Bill Cosby while set to defend the paedophile Jeffrey Epstein....the lawyers are named as Bruce Castor and David Schoen who was once a District Attorney in Pennsylvania....they will now represent Trump......such is the 'quality' of US Law.

MURDERED BLACK MAN BY COP GETS PAYOUT --- It was reported that George Floyd, the man who was killed by a policeman was awarded around $30 million dollars which will go to his family from the City of Minneapolis in settlement of a lawsuit over his death by a police officer. It also adds that a further $500,000 dollars will be given to the neighbourhood.  It says that this is the largest pre-trial settlement in a wrongful death case in US History....so far?      (14/3/2021)

THE CYCLE OF BLACKS KILLED BY COPS GOES ON REGARDLESS --- As another young black man, Daunte Wright 20, is shot dead by a female officer another case is being revealed of a 13yr old black boy being fatally shot by police emerges, and although the officer tried to blame it on the boy having a weapon as he puts up his hands in the normal surrender position known throughout the world, camera footage showed that the boy did not have a gun when the officer shot him in the chest.  Whereas Daunte Wright was shot while in the car the officers had stopped, and the female officer said she drew her gun by mistake as she intended to Taser him.  Minneapolis erupted in anger when they heard that the officer had resigned over the shooting along with the police chief.  Later however, the female officer was arrested and charged with manslaughter, it was said that she was a veteran police officer.  The other case of the 13yr old boy is still being investigated, and it was learned that the news of that shooting had been withheld for over a week!       (13/4/2021)

US CHILDREN'S' COURT JUDGE ARRESTED ON CHILD PORN CHARGES --- It was reported that a Milwaukee Democratic Circuit Court Judge, Brett Blomme, was charged with seven counts of possessing child pornography.  It says that the local police executed search warrants at his house and Judicial Chambers.  Prosecutors allege that he sent 27 disturbing child sex abuse images of child pornography,  and that some of these were uploaded from a government  building.

FBI AGENT HARASSED EIGHT WOMEN AT WORK --- The report said that a Senior FBI Agent, James Hendricks, was a skilled 'predator' of women who it says he touched inappropriately and asked for sex with others during work.  The Justice Department made a statement saying that Mr Hendricks had retired on 'full benefits' and that the Department's Watchdog on conduct of Agents had concluded that he had sexually harassed eight female colleagues.  Mr Hendricks refused to comment!   (13/4/2021)

US ARMY OFFICER SUES THE COPS -- It was reported that US Army Officer, Caron Nazario has filed a federal lawsuit against two police officers in Virginia who he says sprayed him with pepper spray and assaulted him.  The black Latino Army Officer was also warned by the officers that he was risking death by the electric chair!  He told reporters that he was pulled over while going through the small town of Windsor when officers, Joe Gutierez and Daniel Crocker stopped his vehicle.  The officers pulled out their guns at which point he was afraid to get out, especially as he was in full Army uniform, the officers told him 'he should be' as they pointed guns directly at him.  He launched the action claiming the officers violated his constitutional rights and that race played a factor in their behaviour towards him.    (12/4/2021)

COP THAT KILLED FLOYD IS FOUND GUILTY -- In an awaited trial, the police officer, Derek Chauvin, was found guilty of murder by the jury on all counts.  He's facing up to at least ten years in jail it is said, as the disgraced officer was led away in handcuffs out of the courtroom.

COP IS CAPTURED BEATING DEMONSTRATOR -- Another American cop case hits the news as it was revealed that a Demonstrator, Denorver Garrett, who was peacefully demonstrating against police brutality in Louisville, Kentucky, was caught on camera as a police officer hit the man with several punches and had Mr Denorver face down on the ground.  It says an investigation will now follow into this.   (20/4/2021)

Kueng and Tou Thao are named as the officers in the case.   Chauvin has already been convicted of Floyd's murder and is in jail.  The others appeared at Minneapolis District Court.     (8/5/2021)

US VICE PRESIDENT IN RULE BREAKING INQUIRY -- A former Vice President, Mike Pence , was accused of breaking federal guidelines during the pandemic and costing the American taxpayer $757,000 dollars in security costs as he and his family enjoyed a skiing holiday while much of the public were in lockdown and facing restrictions.  It was said he had 48 agents looking after him and rented 77 cars according to a  city watchdog that watches government over ethics and responsibility.  The government did not respond!   (28/4/2021)

FLOYD MURDER COP GETS 22 YEARS JAIL -- The finale of this long drawn out case against a police officer who disgraced the law, resulted in former officer Derek Chauvin being sentenced to 22 years in prison.  But in addition it says that even in prison he will be brought back to court for a civil rights trial he still faces.  The Judge in his sentencing noted that Chauvin not only abused his position of trust and authority, but showed a strange particular cruelty when forcing Floyd to the ground.       (26/6/2021)

JAILED SEX ABUSER COSBY FREED BY 'SPECIAL DEAL' BY A COURT? --- In an amazing twist of events, the public have learned that within the 'secretive' law, a deal could be had by the rich which is designed to 'shield the accused from charges' -- The 83yr old comedy actor and star was serving a 10 year jail sentence, but has now been released after just two years the report says.  Amazing most of the public who were unaware a deal like this existed heard that the Pennsylvania's Supreme Court ruled that a 'non-prosecution' deal had been struck with a previous District Attorney in 2005, which should have shielded Cosby from the charges he was found guilty of?  to add insult, the US Judiciary declared that not only should Cosby be discharged, but that any future prosecution mounted in connection with the allegations against him, must be barred!      (1/7/2021)

NB: It makes one wonder how many governments and Law Chiefs give out these special deals that can sidestep the law, and who gets this special treatment?......definitely one for the 'dirty deals' definition, and it shows that there is two separate laws, something discovered in many countries, but denied and not talked about.

THE AMERICAN CHASE FOR HISTORY & RECOGNITION -- The USA has travelled far and wide to find its origins and come out in a blaze of glory, but alas, their history had no kingdoms, no grand design of honourable intentions and no real past other than migrants and the subjugation of the Indians, the true Americans.  They slaughtered most of them and took their lands, allowing a few to live on reservations, while they prospered and occupied those lands with all the entitlements......realising the only history anyone would know would be the 'Cowboys and Indians' tales, and shootouts, plundered gold and corporation economic power......that is what America has built itself on.

THE SHAME THAT IS AMERICA --- This report is truly shocking in that it again involves the courts and Trump?  It says that migrant children are being forced to appear in courts, on their own, some as young as three, to face 'deportation hearings' unrepresented and on their own.  It says that some of these children were separated from their parents at the US -- Mexico border.....and this situation can be put firmly at the door of Donald Trump the egotistical narcisstic President of the United States. Observers in court said that some of the very young children were actually getting onto tables and gazing around at the court not really understanding what was going on.  It says that around 2,300 children have been separated from their parents under the 'zero-tolerance' policy put in place by Mr Trump.  It also says that the American US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency would not comment on the situation.  The only decent thing to emerge from this report is that a Judge spoke out against the policy and ordered that around 2,000 children taken from their families must be returned and reunited with their parents within 30 days!

THE USA rank as one of the highest corruption capitals in regard to bent cops, lawyers and judges, and the material if it were to be placed here would go to several megabytes.

Sadly, there's so much corruption in the USA that it would probably take 10 megabytes just to scratch the surface, and we're not prepared to waste that much space on this rogue nation......no matter how good it believes it is.....which is a complete pipe dream.

Before signing out on this ramshackle American dream, that's loaded with more holes than a deep fishing net --- we thought two articles do very nicely to show how devious and self-serving the Americans are:

'AMERICA DENIES JUSTICE TO UK DEATH BOY' ---This is the Dunn Family who just want justice because it was an American woman that killed their son in a road accident in the UK, and then took flight to evade capture.....she in fact claimed 'diplomatic immunity' which shows that you can actually get away with murder......and it's all backed up by the US Judiciary and Political crooks....as it now turns out that a Judge in the High Court has ruled that the 'immunity' stands.....and even a civil case for damages is set to be thrown out by the court too, as they plot together to provide cover for the elite......which goes to prove that the Law is corrupt in many countries, including the USA and UK.

And showing you more corruption in high office the outgoing President Trump has actually pardoned an adviser who lied to the FBI, he actually pleaded guilty to obstruction and perjury.....Mr Michael Flynn was Trump's former National Security Adviser who lasted just 24 days in the White House before being fired by Donald Trump.....and even Trump's Lawyer Rudy Giuliani gets to wear an iron coat as he is being probed over lobbying law breaches who will not be required to stand trial over the many fraud accusations he's made....Trump's former manager, Paul Manafort is described as a convicted fraudster.....which shows how brazen the powerful are about not being caught, because it is all about immunity and making sure they are above the law in every given situation.      (November 2020)

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SLIPS FROM HIS PUBLIC FACE TO REVEAL ANOTHER SIDE -- It was reported that he publicly claimed that billions had been, nay, trillions had gone to Afghanistan in aid and arms to support the government and people of that country, led by Ashraf Ghani, who immediately fled to Tajikistan along with his senior advisors....and most likely a whole load of cash.  Biden also backed up the claim that Afghanistan had  some 300,000 military personnel, which out-numbered the Taliban fighters, but sources in Afghanistan said they only had 50,000 men, and when reporters asked the US President and US Department, they declined to answer.  Which poses the question, is Biden willing to support the lie in order to support the deception and cover-up in connection with the claim of 'a trillion dollars' when this just doesn't stack up.  Have his loyal American fans fallen for this lie? -- it certainly looks like it.  Now that the smoke is clearing people might just wonder why it was so easy for the Taliban to take over without much resistance,.... where was this big army, because no-one saw it or encountered it in Kabul?  .... and how long will it be before the US and others embrace this Taliban takeover in order to satisfy their own agenda brushing aside the deaths that paid for this?       (20/8/2021)

US MILITARY RESPONSIBLE FOR KILLING OF 50,000 CIVILIANS --- Being a conservative figure, the report does hedge back to using the words 'at least 22,000' when it mentions US-led air strikes in countries in the middle east and Africa.  A monitoring group calling their research into the twenty year 'forever war' for the US say that the total is more likely to be 50,000 as the Americans are not helping in this and are actively refusing to give any details.      (7/9/2021)

TRUMP'S LAWYERS BILLED OVER FRIVOLOUS LAW CASE -- It was reported that the Lawyers who acted for former president, Donald Trump are facing a bill of $200,000 dollars from Michigan Officials.  The case is going before US District Judge Linda Parker, after Michigan officials launched a lawsuit claiming that the alleged voter fraud was ruled as 'a frivolous' case, and that election officials are entitled to have their legal fees reimbursed.  Most of the money was requested from the City of Detroit, who spent $180,000.      (10/9/2021)

SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP IS NON EXISTENT --- Britain's claim that they have a 'special relationship' with the USA is based on nothing but a glib remark made in the long past, that was never to be taken as something unique at all.  President Joe Biden has made this quite obvious, as a former aide to Obama, Brett Bruen said 'he doesn't give a damn about the rest of the world, America comes first'  The apparent snub to Britain and Europe when he pulled troops out of Afghanistan without consulting Britain had nothing to do with a 'special relationship'.  History tells of Britain fighting the Americans on their own soil as the UK tried to enforce its own ideas and grab land.  Most Americans today loathe the Brits and they are not afraid to say so on the Internet.  (2021)

U.S. BOMBING SCANDAL OF INNOCENTS IN AGHANISTAN was meant to be kept a secret according to some in the high command who hoped that this 'blooper' would not be exposed.  The US drone strike killed 10 members of a family that weren't Taliban or terrorists.  Seven of the dead were reported to be children and all that the USA could come up with is 'sorry'.....which the family says isn't good enough.  Mr Ahmadi representing the family said that the Usa should find the person that okayed the strike, who will be an officer who the Americans will keep secret about and lie for.  He said that the family is seeking compensation from the Americans to cover their losses of home etc,  typically, the US has not commented at all.   (20/9/2021)

AMERICANS COMPLICIT IN GUN SMUGGLING TO UK -- It was reported that a Brit and his American accomplices were caught trafficking 36 weapons from America to the UK and Caribbean.  It was said that the Brit Jahziah Roy Lewis took care of the purchasing of the hand guns and having their serial numbers rubbed out.  With the help of American accomplices, they were smuggled in household items with the intentions of selling them abroad.  The leader, Lewis was jailed in America for 4 years and nine months in Atlanta, Georgia.    (21/9/2021)

Note: What we feature here is not the full story but a mere scratching of the surface...to save on space we have created links for you to go to.....we shall look for more.

MEXICO --  POLICE BOSS CAUGHT TAKING DRUGS -- The report says that Police Chief, Juan Carlos Mejia Pedroza has been suspended after a film showed him snorting cocaine.  The film which was seen by many on the Internet social media revealed him snorting a white powder it was said, and the authorities responded by putting him under investigation and charging him with inappropriate behaviour.  It was also said that he is married to the Mayor in Villa Guerrero, Mexico.     (29/4/2021)

 

'SPAIN'

SPANISH TOP JUDGE FACES TRIAL -- The Supreme Court in Spain have refused to throw out the case against their famous judge Baltasar Garzon who faces charges in two other trials. He faces accusations that he overstepped his authority--- it is said he ordered an inquiry into mass killings by forces loyal to a former dictator and has violated the amnesty agreed in 1977, and that calling for such an inquiry will open war wounds. But there is a public feeling supported by thousands of demonstrators in Madrid that are demanding justice.

NB - this reminds us of the 'Reconciliation Trials' in South Africa when killers in Massacres and brutal Police were released from their criminal acts and confessing as part of a deal that allowed them immunity --- which is by all standards fundamentally wrong -- murderers are hung in some countries -- so what of justice?

SPANISH DUKE IN EMBEZZLEMENT TRIAL -- News in says that Princess Christina's husband Inaki Urdangarin, who sometimes uses the title ' Duke of Palma' used his position to embezzle around E6million Euros in public contracts through a foundation he set up.  Strangely, the Supreme Court has ruled that the Princess cannot be tried on tax charges (immunity granted)....despite her testifying in the case.

SPAIN CONVICTS 53 PEOPLE FOR CORRUPTION -- In Spain's biggest corruption trial which has taken two years to see daylight, fifty three suspects were convicted of corruption in the real-estate and bribery trial.  42 were acquitted it is said....among those in the dock were Lawyers, City Hall Officials and businessmen.  The master - mind is named as The City Urban Planning Officer Juan Antonio Roca....who was jailed for 11 years.

SPAIN IN TOWN HALL CORRUPTION PROBE -- The report says that the Spanish Police have arrested around 51 people in local government positions who had contact with construction contracts.  The corruption probe is said to involve the sum of 250 million Euros.  The 'Operation Punica' is investigating town halls in Madrid, Murcia, Leon and Valencia amid numerous corruption scandals already emerging.

SPAIN'S PRIESTS ARRESTED ON CHILD ABUSE -- Four Priests have been arrested in connection with an ongoing investigation into child abuse and child sex allegations.  Police made their arrests in Granada, but would say no more about who they had arrested other than that they were priests.  The report says that the Spanish Interior Minister has shown special interest in uncovering this, adding that the Pope was anxious in bringing the case to light..... as the victims had written to the Pope.

SPAIN PUTS PRINCESS ON TRIAL -- Princess Cristina, the sister to King Felipe, was not only the first Royal to ever be answering questions in court over tax fraud, will now be the first Royal to go on trial for tax fraud, when it was previously thought she was immune.  A short time before this new change, the state prosecutor Pedro Horrach recommended that she pay a fine of E600,000 Euros rather than face trial with her former Olympic Sportsman Ifiaki Urdangarin.

12 SPANISH LAWYERS ARRESTED OVER ETA LINKS -- A Report says that around sixteen people were arrested and of them, there were twelve lawyers suspected of having ties with the Basque Separatist Group ETA.  The Minister for the Interior said they were being charged with having not only a connection but actual membership of the terrorist organisation.  They are also being charged with tax fraud and money laundering.

CHILD ABUSE CHARGES FOR TEN SPANISH PRIESTS --   It is reported that ten Catholic Priests have been charged with sexually abusing boys in their care.  The Pope ordered an investigation and crackdown on the priests who have done harm to the Church after receiving a distressing letter from an alter boy who was 14 when he was abused.   It was also revealed that he no longer believes in just the odd rogue priest, but that a pack of priests known as the 'Romanones' are at work in the church, and as a result as ordered an internal investigation to flush them out.

APPALLING VIOLENCE FROM THE SPANISH POLICE -- Not a good sign for democracy, not a good sign for visiting holidaymakers, as we find that Spanish Police commit the worse kind of violence that is often seen in a dictator's country.  The report says that Spanish Forces attacked unarmed voters...revealing how brutal and excessive these police can be when they are not held accountable and given free reign to act in any way they see fit.  The baton wielding police dislike the Catalonia people and dragging them out of polling stations should have no place in Western democracy...unfortunately the eyes of the world are diverted and the Spanish are taking advantage of it.   (2020)

It should be noted in relation to the above, the battered Catalans have suffered other 'nastiness' from Spain, as they have used this sorry excuse to have their police raid the Catalans and arrest eight people in connection with 'alleged' corruption charges (as part of a fraud investigation involving the ruling party).  A Civil Guard spokesman said they had arrested the Convergence Treasurer and six business directors. 

SPANISH STUDENTS CHARGED WITH EXAM FRAUD -- A report says that two students may be facing jail terms of one year each after being caught cheating on an exam.  Prosecutors have said the pair falsified public documents, as one sat the test using the other's identity card. In a strange 'act of devaluing the law' the prosecutors are pushing for twelve months in prison and a fine of  six Euros a day while in jail?

SPANISH PRIME MINISTER CALLED AS WITNESS IN CORRUPTION TRIAL -- This concerns the trial of 40 people in the Spanish Popular Party involved in alleged bribery (kickbacks) for contracts, a scheme that helped Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy finance his Party.  He is being required to testify in his role as Party Secretary between the years 2003 and 2004 when the alleged illegal financing scheme was operating.  It seems like the skeletons in the cupboard are making themselves known?

WOMAN IN SPAIN GETS FINED FOR TAKING PHOTO OF A POLICE CAR IN A DISABLED BAY -- The woman who snapped the law behaving unlawfully thought she was doing her duty to highlight this abuse of the law, but found herself being fined E800 Euros under the country's new 'gagging law' which states that unauthorised use of images of police officers which might jeopardise them or their family's safety is not allowed' which in effect will conceal police wrongdoing at any location, at court, in prison, and allow them to get away with crime' which is beginning to look like 'state rule' and 'a police state in the making'....the police in the photo said that it offended the honour of the police?

SPANISH JUDGE FACES DISCIPLINARY ACTION OVER 'OTHER JOB' --- The report says that a Judge in Galicia in North Western Spain, Maria Jesus Garcia Perez did not disclose she had a second job as a 'fortune teller' working with tarot cards.  It was said that she was taking money for her services in 'psychic' business.  It says she is being investigated by the judges governing body for 'undertaking activities incompatible with her position as a judge.   The only quaint thing here is that any fortune in telling goes to the judge who has a super salary, which is a bit ironic for those she takes money for seeing their futures!

FORMER KING INVESTIGATED OVER BRIBERY CLAIM ---- It was reported that the Supreme Court in Spain has launched an investigation into the country's former King, Jan Carlos 1, over claims that he received 'kickbacks' as part of a rail deal with Saudi Arabia.  The Prosecutor will examine the evidence to see if the king can be included in a corruption investigation linked to a £5.3 billion pound deal in 2011, involving a Spanish consortium, to build a high-speed railway to Mecca and Medina.  The problem arising from the situation and case appears to arise from Spain's constitution that says the king 'is immune from responsibility', and therefore the court must rely on the allegations of money- laundering and fraud after Juan Carlos abdicated in 2014.  One piece of vital information is said to be a taped conversation with a retired police officer, which was leaked to Spanish media, when a German businesswoman claimed Juan Carlos 82, was paid $100 million dollars by the Saudi Royal family.   It also adds that the prosecutor is looking into suspicious activity around a network of accounts based in Switzerland and Panama City linked to Juan Carlos.    (9/6/2020)

SPAIN'S EX-KING FACES INVESTIGATION OVER CREDIT CARDS --- The report says that former King, Juan Carlos, his wife and other members of his Royal family are being investigated over the use of credit cards that were allegedly financed from abroad.  The anti-corruption officers are looking into spending on those cards allegedly used to pay for a series of journeys to London where his wife has a second home and relatives.  The Prosecutors are trying to establish if any 'wrongdoing' took place....the time period being investigated is 2016, 2017 and 2018 after the king abdicated.  Up to the abdication, the King had immunity from prosecution, but on leaving it was revoked.  He is now living in the United Arab Emirates.....and he can only be investigated the Supreme Court, the highest court in Spain.    (4/11/2020)

 

'SAUDI ARABIA, rich, ruthless and repressive'

SAUDI and its Draconian sentences, -- It is reported that nine men with gay tendencies, whom they label as ' deviants ' were sentenced to 2400 strokes each?  the floggings are to be carried out fortnightly at 60 strokes a time until the full sentence is carried out.  Neil Durkin of Amnesty said these people were being denied a fair trial and the only evidence offered was that the men wore women's clothes while being involved with each other, and that confessions had been forced out of them, they were not allowed legal representation. A gay man can be sentenced to death -- for being gay!! -- which is either hanging or beheading.

THE SAUDI'S FLOGGED UK Citizen Nigel Maidment arrested over an alcohol incident, he was sentenced to 70 strokes, and another Briton, John Kelly was given 250 strokes for a similar offence.  One can agree that a country must pursue its own laws, but it still does not take away the fact that the country practices barbaric rituals disguised as law....and it does not make one ounce of sense that one man gets 70 and another 250 for a drink related incident apparently under the same law, which does not show an equal fairness under the judiciary that on the face of it seems to be wholly corrupt.

SAUDI'S SENTENCE BRIT COUPLE TO FLOGGING - 57 yr old Ann and 59yr old Peter Goldsmith have been sentenced to 500 strokes each on yet again, a alcohol related charge, and that sentence is double what the previous sentence has been in relation to the above article making a nonsense out of a so-called judicial sentencing law. The couple were held at separate jails, and that fact was held secret for some time as Shari Codes of Islamic Law allow detention without trial and restrict legal representation.

SAUDI'S FLOG BRITON IN SECRECY DESPITE DIPLOMATIC PROMISES THAT HE WOULD BE SPARED -- Qatar Lawyers assured British Diplomats that they would not proceed with the caning, but went ahead despite these shallow and untrue statements issued by the Saudi's.  Gavin Gerrard-Smith who was led out of his cell and made to strip and remove the prison overalls and t-shirt for the doctor's examination before being caned by several policeman who carried out the sentence in front of a religious judge, senior policeman and the doctors. Three policeman carried out the caning.  Apparently at the prison, they cane prisoners on Tuesdays, it's nice when these barbaric sadists have made a day for it ?  It's a pity there isn't a day for their downfall and destruction!!

SAUDI ARABIA ORDERS 50 STROKE FLOGGING  FOR  MAN WHO INSULTED POLICE -- In keeping with their ways the court in Jeddah gave a woman a prison sentence of one month and 50 lashes for insulting the police?  despite an Appeal, the court upheld the sentence because she called them 'liars' during an argument.

SAUDI ARABIA IN ANOTHER FLOGGING SENTENCE AGAINST BLOGGER -- The backward courts of Saudi Arabia still lost in the past and grabbing the wealth of the future sentenced Raif Badawi to 1,000 lashes besides 10 yrs in jail for insulting Islam on a Internet forum....the court says that he will be given 50 lashes every week for twenty weeks as 'an example for others to see'.......apparently he was sentenced in May 2014 according to Amnesty.

SAUDI ARABIA DEFENDS FLOGGING OF BLOGGER -- In a news report it comes as no surprise that the Saudi government like this 'hang 'em flog 'em' thing......its all there in their history, as they live that way except with bigger wallets and embracing capitalism for their own greed.  They claim that the attack from the outside nations is unjustified and their commitment to human rights is all too clear?......pull the other one, it doesn't work.

SAUDI COURT JAILS HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER -- Prominent Human Rights Lawyer Waleed Abul-Khair was jailed for 15 years on the charge of 'inciting public opinion'.....they've also barred him from travelling out of the country for a further fifteen years for being an activist...(so that he can't tell his story to the Western World)

SAUDI'S BEHEAD 7 CONVICTED  PRISONERS DESPITE UN PLEAS -- Yet another case of 'we the ancient, and now powerfully rich' will conduct our barbaric practices as we see fit -- but we still want to squeeze the West over our oil fields '  The UN asked for clemency for the seven men convicted of theft, robbery and looting, one of those executed said he was forced into a confession by torture....it was said that the judges refused to see the marks in the three years of trial....the sentence was death by crucifixion or firing squad, but news emerged that the seven men were beheaded in the Southern city of Abha in March.

SAUDI ARABIA -- COURT ORDERS PARALYSIS SENTENCE ON MAN -- 'Grotesque' yes, that's what the Foreign Office of the UK says.  A Court and judge ordered that convicted prisoner Alial-Khawaher 24, who has spent ten years in jail awaiting sentence is to be medically paralysed as a punishment because the victim of a dispute he stabbed was confined to a wheelchair.......yet another example of Islamic Sharia and its barbaric methods.

 SAUDI ARABIA -- AND THE ATROCITIES OF LAW  -- One must not rule the Saudi's out of the big bad nations, they too are barbaric as we are about to show.  Thousands are held without trial and denied visitors, Human Rights Activists are constantly notching up the list this nation does in barbaric practises.  At Cairo there is new prison with fifteen foot thick walls, ordered under the instructions of President Mubarak, which holds 17,000 men. Torture goes on here and is well documented, 20 prisoners in Section 4 of Block 2H were stripped naked and flogged with canes because a soldier discovered a pocket radio and a watch on one inmate, Gamal Osman, a medical student. 

SAUDI ARABIA -- HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS TORTURED IN DETENTION -- Unpleasant news arrived of the arrest of 10 human rights activists who were abused and tortured when they were put into detention.  Amnesty International in the Middle East were able to get testimonies when they were held in an informal facility.  The reports were similar to one in November recounting how several activists , including a number of women, had been repeatedly tortured by electric shocks and flogging, leaving some of them unable to stand or walk normally.

SAUDI ARABIA -- UNPAID WAGE PROTESTORS RECEIVE 300 LASHES -- The report says that a group of foreign construction workers who began a protest about receiving no pay were sentenced by a court to 300 lashes each, and four months in prison.  It was said by the protestors that they hadn't been paid for six months.  In the Mecca Courtroom they were sentenced to be flogged for inciting unrest.  The majority of the workers came from India and Pakistan.  The Saudi Bin Laden Group who failed or withheld the wages of those sentenced would get their pay as soon as the government settled its arrears?

SAUDI ARABIA --- COURT ORDERS FLOGGING OF 1,000 LASHES AND 10 YEAR JAIL SENTENCE -- A court sentenced a blogger to 1,000 lashes and ten years in prison.  Raif Badawi 31, had already received a flogging  in the public square in January it was said.  However for insulting religious figures on his web blog, the court pushed aside a previous sentence of 7 years and 600 lashes, replacing it with ten years and a 1000 lashes, and carried out the first instalment of the flogging outside a mosque in the city in January.  Amnesty International called on other countries to rescind the punishments by approaching the authorities, which has at the moment halted it until a Supreme Court Ruling.

SAUDI ARABIA --- £76 BILLION POUND CORRUPTION SCANDAL -- The report says that Saudi Arabia's anti-corruption investigators have revealed that a £76 billion pound corruption scandal has been uncovered.  Saudi's Attorney General said that around 200 people are believed to be involved, including senior princes, ministers and influential businessmen.  He said that the corruption and embezzlement had gone on for several decades, and that suspect's bank accounts had been suspended.  However, he was not prepared to name those under investigation, and said they were entitled to enjoy the full rights afforded to them under Saudi Law...........not for some others eh?

SAUDI ARABIA CONDEMNED BY HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH -- Said, it is a country where speaking out against the dictatorial regime or criticising Islam can result in public execution.  Being Gay can also lead to a lengthy prison sentence.  Throughout 2015 they have continued arbitrary arrests, trials and convictions of peaceful dissidents.  Dozens of human rights defenders and activists continued to serve long prison sentences for advocating political and rights reforms.  I52 people were executed between January and November for crimes that included murder and drugs offences.  62 were executed for 'non-violent drug crimes, 47 men were executed for 'alleged' terrorist offences, and the practice of flogging is awarded for many minor offences, mostly in public.

SAUDI JUDGE IS RELEASED FROM PRISON -- The report says that the Saudi authorities have released a former 82 year old judge after he served five years of his fifteen year sentence.  It said that the Judge, Sulaiman al-Rashudi was the president of the now dissolved Saudi  Civil and Political Rights Association.

SAUDIS WIELD POWER OVER NETFLIX -- In a saddening piece of news, it was reported that Netflix acted as a willing pawn influenced by ? and became censor in one of its own series by removing an episode in the comedy because the King deemed it too critical of the kingdom's rulers.  It was quickly criticised by many who thought Netflix was above being shoved around....and others found it quite outrageous.

SAUDI PRINCE HELD OVER DRUGS -- A conveniently placed news item said that the Airport Authorities prevented the private plane of a Saudi Prince from taking off.  Airport security in Beirut foiled one of the country's largest smuggling attempts, seizing two tons of amphetamine Captagon pills before they were loaded onto the plane.  The Prince and four others were detained.  The authorities said they only had a slight suspicion that something was amiss as the cargo was being taken to the plane.

SAUDI'S CRUELTIES PUBLISHED BY AMNESTY --- It is reported that an investigation by Amnesty International have listed a catalogue of cruelties and injustice at detention centres for African migrants across Saudi Arabia which has included practices of electric shock torture, chaining up migrants, dying children and a lack of food.  It says that the report is a devastating reality of Saudi treatment which they continue to deny, but don't allow any outside investigation.   (3/10/2020)

SAUDI SHEIKH ACCUSED OF ASSAULT -- Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, a member of Abu Dhabi's ruling family has been accused of assault by Caitlin McNamara, an organiser of the famous UK Hay literary festival.  She said the assault happened when they met at a remote private island villa.  She said he sexually assaulted her as they sipped wine on a sofa.  She said as he touched her she realised why she had been invited to this special place. She was alone on this private island with a very powerful and rich man in a country where people as rich as this could make you disappear if it was their wish and invent a story that you never arrived.  The report says that back in the UK she made an official report to the Met Police.  The Sheikh's lawyers denied the account as expected...the law in the UK has very little power to do anything when a citizen has suffered in a foreign country, only murder, fraud, terrorism and child sex offences can be tried in the UK.   (19/10/2020)

SAUDI ARABIA EXECUTE ANTI-GOVERNMENT SUSPECT -- It is reported that the Saudi Authorities have recently executed a 26year old who was convicted on his 'alleged' participation in an anti-government rebellion by the minority Shias.  It is said that the court proceedings were clouded in mystery and some say deeply flawed in that he was executed for crimes as a minor? this remained unclear.  Mustafa bin Hashim bin Isa al-Darwish was said to have been detained in 2015 for being in riots during 2011 and 2012.  The report says that the charge sheet does not specify when the alleged crimes took place?  which shows that he could have been 17 or 18yrs old.  It is believed that the young man was beheaded; a common practice of the death penalty carried out.   (17/6/2021)

NB: The strange thing about corruption is that there is hardly a murmur about the ones who made it possible for them to hide their crime......and none are brought to trial once the cover-up is tightly tied up and put out of sight.

It is well understood why the West dare not interfere other than complain about these countries, and that reason is OIL, they are rich in oil and have the upper hand in what goes where and who does what, and the Saudi's know it all too well -- and use that tool as a lever to make the dog lie still and keep the bark in check.

 

'EGYPT'

EGYPT PASSES NEW ANTI-PROTEST LAW to silence all comers.... and has started with a trial with 24 people who it says has broke the new law.  Suppression by law isn't new to these countries.....Egypt looks to the past and protects the wealthy who hold the power.  Alaa Abdel Fattah was arrested in November for 'protesting without the permission of the Authorities'  (Singapore has a similar law in order to suppress critics etc)

EGYPT GRABS BRITISH JOURNALISTS -- British journalists in Egypt are facing criminal charges with eighteen others.  They are being detained and accused of manipulating video footage to show the world an unreal scene that harms the country or is a threat to Egypt's National Security.

EGYPT SAYS POLICE STATE NO LONGER NECESSARY?  -- Whilst admitting to have had a Police State, Egypt now announces that it will no longer be necessary, claiming recent uprising had put an end to abuses....this coming on the back of police excessive force......but, the new Security Forces are being complained about, much in the same way as the police...which looks like they've swapped one evil for another.

EGYPT JAILS THREE JOURNALISTS -- International Journalists doing what they get paid to do were arrested and jailed by the Egyptian Government causing the International community to feel anger.  Australian Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian Mohammed Fahmy and Eyptian producer Baher Mohammed were  jailed for at least 7 years for 'spreading false news and aiding a 'terrorist organisation' which none of them did.

EGYPT DEPOSED PRESIDENT DENIES ORDERS TO KILL -- As so often when caught, leaders of countries deny liability or giving orders to execute or kill those who oppose him.  Former President Hosni Mubarak sat in the accused cage of the Cairo Court to deny giving the order to kill protestors in 2011.  The trial which has gone on for a year thinks he did nothing wrong! and deludes himself by colouring his career listing his achievements to those that will listen and his followers...he now claims he was not forced from power but gave it up.

EGYPT ATTEMPTS TO CURB FREE SPEECH -- in an attempt to make cover-ups normal practice, Egypt wanted several hundred journalists to agree to a policy pledging support for the state and banning any criticism of the police, army and judiciary.  The press rightly were not going to endorse this as it amounted to a voluntary surrender of the freedom of expression and giving in to secrecy and letting the authorities do what they like.  The policy was rejected.

EGYPT POLICE OFFICER CHARGED -- A Police Officer who shot a protestor, a young mother who died as a result of his indiscriminate shots into the crowd ' forced' the prosecutor, Shaimaa Sabbagh (a rare action only brought about by the fact someone photographed the young woman bleeding and dying...which was then shown on the Internet) to bring criminal charges against the police officer 'on a lesser charge' (than murder)...because he was a member of the Security Forces.......otherwise there would have been no case and no charge...the authorities would have seen to this on any other occasion....only the Internet forced it.

EGYPTIAN TERRORIST MADE GOVERNOR OF LUXOR -- A former Terrorist Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya (who it is said committed a notorious massacre in 1997 targeting civilians) was appointed Governor of Luxor by the President of Egypt Mohammed Morsi,  Many protestors came out in uproar when the appointment was announced.

EGYPT PUTS INTERNET BLOGGER ON TRIAL -- Ahmed Douma is charged with 'insulting the President' after calling him a murderer and criminal during recent interviews he did.  This latest arrest against disidents shows that President Mohammed Morsi is seen as an escalating crackdown on those who wish to speak out. Some say that Morsi is using his Presidential powers to influence the court, and the USA have now begun to look at their position especially in the light that they give Egypt $1.5 billion of aid a year....which they know goes mostly to the Egyptian Military?

EGYPT SENTENCE FOREIGN ACTIVISTS IN ABSTENTION ---  Egypt Courts have been handing out jail sentences to Foreign Activists a report says.  Judge Makram Awad gave out several 5 year prison sentences to at least 15 USA citizens (who luckily left Egypt before being detained), one American who did not leave was jailed for two years, as was a German Activist.  It was revealed that the US give Cairo $1.3 billion in aid (used by the Military), maybe its time to axe both Egypt's $1.5 billion and Cairo's $1.3 billon......especially as this country was once run by a Military Council.

EGYPT ANXIOUS TO RETURN TO BEHEADINGS AND DICTATORSHIP -- Egypt are increasingly moving back into the distant past to re-enact brutalities and fit them in 'modern law' -- Recently they jailed three secular activists for their involvement in the 2011 Revolution..... convicting them of 'holding a rally without authorisation'... they also added 'attacking police officers?.... they got 3 yrs under the new law made to suppress and curtail the freedom of expression.......and there is a return to that good old 'police brutality' which throws light on the added convictions involving police claims.

EGYPT'S ARREST OF NEWS TEAM SUGGESTS COVER-UP --- Egypt arrested a journalist News team because they hadn't permits to record the atrocities going on.  This shows they which to conceal this and control the lies they issue in the International Community.  When a country closes the door of truth it inevitably rules by fear and Egypt are obviously doing this.

ABU DHABI and the Ras al-Khaimah emirate -- decided to invent a law where bad drivers were publicly flogged, or ten days in jail -- it said violators of traffic rules will be flogged in public at the mosque nearest to their houses. Police confirmed that up to fifty strokes would be given to anyone driving badly, ignoring red stop lights or driving without a licence.

BEHEADING: Egypt's favourite game of justice -- Ancient Laws, Ancient methods and swimming in modern money..... We came across a report that one Filipino man has bought himself off the death list, yet another one awaits death by sword as he will be beheaded in a public square.....it was interesting to note that the two men have been waiting for 12 years.....along with many others on death row!

EGYPT'S FINANCE MINISTER JAILED -- Former Minister of Finance, Yousef Boutros-Ghali was sentenced to 25 years in prison after being found guilty of squandering in the region of £2.3million in the last few years of his job for the country.

EGYPT CONTINUES ITS SUPPRESSION AND CRACKDOWN ON DISSENTERS - An Egyptian Blogger went on trial for ' insulting the President' -- Ahmed Douma called the President a criminal and murderer on his Internet blog during media interviews.....and was arrested in April....The USA who give $1.5billion of aid each year to Egypt (used mostly on the Military) are said not to be pleased by these arrests.

(Hopefully Electric fuelled Cars will finally dominate motoring, and the Saudi's wealth will topple like rotten apples.....because beyond oil they have nothing to offer.....and nothing to blackmail the West with anymore)

EGYPT TORTURES CHILD DETAINEES --  A report has revealed that the Egyptian Authorities and Police are detaining and torturing children.  State Brutality has made a return say observers who monitored recent protestors, and have resorted to unlawfully detaining children, who were quickly taken out of view and incarcerated in jails were they were systematically tortured.  One lawyer interviewed said that around 400 kids, mostly young boys were being stripped naked before having cold water thrown over them and some were whipped.  'This level of institutional abuse of children is unprecedented in a country that pretends to have values whilst embracing capitalism' said a Human Rights Observer...'They want the world to think they've improved but behind it they are still in the past and believe that beating someone gets what you want....even if they die!

EGYPT AND THE FREEING OF 26 CHARGED GAY MEN --- Police it is said went deliberately out to capture the homosexuals at a Cairo bath-house and seized twenty six men.......charging them with committing indecent acts, but a judge acquitted all the accused men on hearing that the raid was televised and orchestrated to make the public disgusted so that a crackdown on such people would be welcomed.

EGYPT FORMER PRESIDENT GETS 20 YEARS JAIL --  The Muslim Brothers leader Mohamed Morsi who was arrested after three years of becoming Egypt's first freely-elected President was sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing protestors. He along with 12 other Muslim Brothers were convicted of using violence, kidnapping and torture during the demonstrations of 2012.  Amazingly? they were acquitted of murder (which carries the death sentence) and found guilty on lesser charges related to the deaths.  Amnesty called the sentences a travesty of justice.....and shows up the warped and impartiality of Egypt's criminal justice system......probably fixed!

EGYPT -- TORTURE CASES HIDDEN SAYS UN -- A report has accused Egypt of clamping down on non-government groups to prevent human rights violations such as torture to become known, not only in their own country but the outside world in particular.  United Nations Human Rights investigators found that Egypt is failing to provide a safe and enabling environment for civil society in the country.

EGYPT - POLICEMAN'S TRIAL OVER PROTESTOR'S DEATH PROVES EXPLOSIVE -- As it stirs up old revolution open wounds, because a day earlier 17 witnesses to the death of the protestor began their own trial for their part in the same protest.  The report says there is a deep mistrust by protestors in the light that the Egyptian forces have come to define 'the misuse of power' -- Policeman Yassen Salah El Deen stood in the dock inside Cairo's Police building accused of the manslaughter of Shaimaa al-Sabbagh. Yessen Salah El Deen did admit he was the masked policeman seen in the  videoed footage at the scene where the protestor was killed.

EGYPT -- US CITIZEN DIES IN EGYPTIAN PRISON -- Mustafa Kassem, an Egyptian born auto-parts dealer from New York who claimed he was 'wrongfully imprisoned' died after spending six years in jail.  It was said that the Egyptians jailed him on spying charges.  It was declared that he went on hunger strike at the jail protesting about his unjust sentence and died of heart failure.

UN ACCUSES EGYPT OF INTIMIDATION -- The report says that Human Rights Chief at the UN, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein decried a 'pervasive climate of intimidation' in Egypt ahead of the presidential elections.  He said that Egypt had stepped up a crackdown on media outlets it deemed to be publishing reports that might harm national security.  It was learned that some potential candidates who have been allegedly pressured have withdrawn, and others with the threat of arrest.

EGYPT -- IMPRISONED IRISH TEENAGER ON HUNGER STRIKE -- In yet another hunger strike in a Cairo jail, Irish citizen, Ibrahim Halawa 19. has been awaiting trial for almost two years.  It says he fears torture an abuse, especially as he was placed in adult custody with 494 other detainees.  He said he woke up every morning to the noises of torture in the prison.  He says he has not seen any evidence brought against him.  The Irish Embassy are pressing for his release.

EGYPT -- PRESIDENT CONSIDERS OPTIONS OVER STUDENT'S KILLING -- it was said in the report that the President is having problems over the the scandal of the abduction and killing of Italian student Giulio Regeni, which is not going to go away easily, especially for a regime that is so adept at simply making people disappear.  It was said that the Phd student's mutilated body was found in a ditch in Cairo.  News suggested that the President may sacrifice his police chief in order to quell the row between Rome and Cairo.  Even this might not be enough after an e-mail was sent to Italian investigators saying that Egyptian officials were complicit in the death of the student.  As tensions rise over the death  the Italian Foreign Minister has already threatened to impose sanctions and downgrade diplomatic relations if the perceived lies and stalling continues in the case.

UPDATE: It now appears that in relation to the above case, 'CCTV TAPES ERASED'  It reports that vital evidence looked at by the Italian prosecutors has been 'tampered with' and that there are gaps in the footage from the main areas in question such as the inside and around Cairo metro where the Italian student disappeared.  It was also revealed that the student was researching local labour unions when he just vanished......and was later found murdered in a ditch and mutilated.  It was also revealed that 'Egypt tried to cover-up' the investigation by misleading the inquiry, and at one time tried to make it look like a car crash.....and even suggested it was a 'five strong criminal gang'

THE CASE OF RETRIAL AND ABOUT-TURN IN TWO POLICE CASES?  Put together, as one rarely is able, the two cases do not look good for Egyptian justice.....and smells of corruption.  A court in Cairo  acquitted two police officers previously jailed for five years for the killing of a lawyer in 2015....and in the second turn,  a police officer who was jailed for 15 years after killing a protestor in 2015, has also been acquitted too?.....both killing cases in the same year 2015....and suddenly overturned by the higher court.

EGYPT -- MONKS HELD OVER KILLING OF BISHOP -- In a news item it says that Egypt's public prosecutor has detained a 'disgraced monk' on charges of killing a bishop at a desert monastery.  Egyptian authorities announced that they had detained a 33yr old monk known by the monastic name Valtos and have put him under police guard after an attempted suicide.  The disgraced monk, Wael Saad was charged with the murder....the church said he had already been investigated over alleged violations of his duties as a monk.

EGYPT -- ACCUSE TV HOST OF ISSUING FALSE NEWS?  In a bizarre case, the Egyptian authorities detained a TV talk show host, Khairi Ramadan, (a pro-government supporter) over allegations that he insulted the police and disseminated false news on his state television programme.  The authorities issued a statement saying that the TV host had been detained for 24 hours pending an investigation into claims that a segment of his show was damaging to the police (he was detained by National Security Officers)

EGYPT -- FLIMSY PROSECUTION RELEASES UK MAN AFTER FINE -- It says that the authorities released a UK tourist who was arrested for 'patting a male security guard on the back' at the airport.  Tony Camoccio when arrested, feared that he was going to be charged with sexual assault after the incident, which happened just at the end of a holiday with his wife and friends when they were about to leave for Gatwick.  He said the whole innocent reaction suddenly turned into a nightmare and ended up being held.  It was said that he paid nearly a £1,000 for bail, and at the hearing his case was dismissed due to a lack of evidence......he was very glad to leave the country ASAP.  (17/2/2020)

EGYPT ACCUSED OF SPYING --- It was reported that the German Government arrested a man who they say was working for the Egyptian Embassy in Berlin.  The employee of a German Government Press Office, Amin K, a citizen with family roots in Egypt is accused of espionage and getting his instructions from the Egyptian Embassy in 2010.  German Security Services said they had watched the suspect for some time before arresting him on spying charges.        (17/11/2020)

EGYPT IS ACCUSED OF STUDENT'S MURDER --- The report says that four members of Egyptian's Security Services have been charged over the 'kidnapping' (much like Iran --- see it), torture and murder of a Cambridge PhD student in Italy.  It says that the student Giulio Regent 28, vanished in Cairo in 2016 and a week later, his mutilated body was found dumped at a roadside.  It was revealed that he was researching trade unions for his doctorate and Italian Prosecutors say this activity may have been perceived as spying, he'd also written critical articles on the Egyptian regime under a pen name that may have been discovered by the Death Squad Security Services.  Four suspects are being held and it is thought they will get away with it as Egypt does not accept any blame?     (see the Iran bit)       (12/12/2020)

EGYPT'S SHODDY BUILDING CONSTRUCTION KILLS 18 --- The report says that around eighteen people were killed due to a nine-storey block of flats collapsing.  In addition it revealed that at least 24 other people were injured and taken to hospital.  Amazingly, it was said that these kind of incidents are not uncommon in Egypt where shoddy building construction is widespread, and building permits are violated because developers seek bigger profits and care little about putting people's lives in danger.      (6/4/2021)

 

'TURKEY  (midnight express....THEY DON'T LIKE THAT MENTIONED)

' Turkey  top of the Suppression league '

TURKEY have topped the league in jailing the highest number of journalist for two years running, followed closely by CHINA and IRAN.   All three account for half of the 211 journalists imprisoned up to December the first.  Most of these journalists have been taken to court for taking pictures and writing about incidents that look bad for these countries who have a bad record on human rights and suppression of information.  Soldiers in INDONESIA destroyed journalists cameras when they attempted to get a news article.....and this kind of thing is on the increase around the World as Governments make attempts to suppress wrongdoing going public.  Their attempts to 'gag' the Internet are becoming more frantic, and dissidents are being secretly detained and jailed so as to keep the situation under control.  SINGAPORE have similar measures in place.

TURKEY  BLOCKS THE INTERNET OVER LEAKED ITEM --  The Turkish Government hastily moved into secrecy mode as it blocked YouTube over 'Syria Leak'   The item on YouTube revealed top security officials discussing military operations in Syria.  The 'anonymous posting' on YouTube annoyed government officials who have already attacked Twitter over media reports they did not wish seen or read.

TURKEY DETAINS WOMAN OVER CORRUPTION TWEET -- A Turkish woman was arrested by police for posting a tweet on the Internet suggesting that there was corruption in the government and that a cover-up of a scandal was implemented by officials.  She cited the name of a Judge who had dropped a corruption and bribery probe without any explanation.  The woman is said to be a former television presenter......this comes at a time when Turkey is set on a course to suppress freedoms like several other countries now engaged in this practice.

TURKEY REFUSE TO ADMIT BUTCHERING A MILLION CHRISTIANS -- Not unusual really for a country like Turkey that made complaints about the film 'Midnight Express' which depicted them as barbarous....and even 100 years on Turkey like others prefer to pretend that their past was brutal.  These countries do not make reparations or put their state murderers on trial....they'd rather honour them and ignore what they are.

TURKEY POLICE USE EXCESSIVE FORCE THE EU SAYS -- Turkey's Police were criticised in a European Union Report, and says that an investigation must be undertaken by the government.  The Annual Report says that this must be one of the requirements before the EU will allow Turkey to join The European Union 28 member bloc.

TURKEY -- AUTHORITIES PLAY DOWN DATA LEAK -- Some 50 million Turkish citizens allegedly had their private details leaked....along with the main contender, President Erdogan it was suggested.  The Communications Minister tasked with debunking this the best he could, hit back at the information and said it was 'an old story first seen in 2010' but failed to explain anything further.  But even as the minister thought he had put the report to bed, The Associated Press said that it had partially verified the authenticity of the data by checking the ID numbers that were not publicly available against the data....eight of those it tried were a match!

TURKEY -- US ARREST TURKEY GOLD TRADER ON LAUNDERING CHARGES --A report that will not please the Turkish government, the USA said they had come across a corruption scandal which engulfed Turkey's President Recep Tayip Erdogan when they arrested and charged gold dealer, Reza Zarrab (also known as Riza Sarraf) in Miami with laundering millions of dollars.  Background wise in 2013 the gold dealer Zarreb was accused of bribing senior ministers from Turkey's Ruling Party with cash and lavish gifts as part of a scheme to bypass US sanctions imposed on Iran.  It says the arrest threatens to reopen and deepen tensions between Turkey and America.  The indictment accuse Mr Zarraf of using a global web of companies to hide transitions he was conducting on behalf of Iranian entities.

TURKEY -- JUDICIARY GUILTY OF INTIMIDATION -- Rights Groups came strongly out to condemn Erdogan and Turkey of becoming a savage dictatorship under the guise of 'fake democracy' -- especially after Amnesty International called on Turkey to end what they term an 'orchestrated campaign of intimidation and judicial harassment of civil society'... which came after Turkish Prosecutors moved to charge 16 prominent activists.  In later news, Turkish prosecutors were seeking life prison terms without parole against a philanthropist businessman, Osman Kavala, and 15 other people accused of trying to overthrow the government by supporting mass opposition protests.

TURKEY -- JOURNALIST JAILED BECAUSE HE QUESTIONED PROSECUTORS --  The journalist from the Cumhuriyet newspaper was sent to jail for two years by the Turkish court on charges of potential incitement, which all stemmed from a case that was triggered by an article Canan Coskun wrote about prosecutors' questioning of detained lawyers for two hunger-striking teachers allegedly linked to the leftist DHKP-C militant group...accused by the government of being a terrorist group.  When a state of emergency was declared in 2016, Parliament began work on a draft bill that would allow the mass dismissals of civil servants and the holding of suspects in custody for up to 12 days.

TURKEY -- DISSENTERS DETAINED AND PRESS SILENCED -- Not an unusual move by the government in Turkey, as reports  say that Erdogan is becoming tyrannical in his attempts to remove opposition in any way possible. The sight of this headline 'The Government treats every citizen who does not agree with them as terrorists' only spurred on the authorities to detain as many dissenters as possible and shut the newspapers down.  When one journalist Ahmet Sik told an Istanbul court in a trial of 18 staffers from the newspaper Cumhuriyet on charges of aiding outlaw groups, Judge Abdurrahman Orkun Dag silenced him after two minutes, saying his defence was political and inadmissible?

RADIO BROADCAST EXPOSES TURKISH LEADERS --- It was not what the authorities wanted as a Turkish crime mobster revealed 'the dirt' on the government politicians on a massive YouTube show where Mafia Boss Sedat Peker spoke out about corruption in the Turkish government.  It was said he captivated the nation mentioning drug-trafficking, murder cover-ups and arms sales to Islamist militants, in fact, everything he could that had a good degree of fraud, money-laundering and much more, all involving government officials.  It says that his weekly video shows on YouTube have been viewed by over 75 million people, causing panic in political circles and heightening concerns that corruption is being hidden from the people by politicians who have an interest in covering these things up.  Those that have been mentioned all deny wrongdoing as expected, but Mr Peker says he will continue with the shows and broadcast more revelations, especially about his main nemesis, Suleyman Soylu who he accuses of abuse of power and corruption.  Mr Erdogan, the leader of the Ruling Party was said to have ignored the shows for a week before branding them a 'conspiracy against Turkey' which appears flimsy and expected.      (June 2021)

'AFGHANISTAN'   (RESCUED BUT NOT REFORMED)

THE AFGHANISTAN'S RESORT TO PUBLIC EXECUTION -- The West come in with troops and fight for their freedom, and the sickening scene of a woman executed in front of a baying crowd shows the real Afghan -- A woman accused of adultery is shot five times by a public executor with an assault rifle in front of a crazed crowd who have little regard for life. This kind of warped justice is an affront against humanity, and the people who support it have much to answer for.

AFGHANISTAN -- BRIBERY AMONG POLITICIANS AT 50 PERCENT -- Half the politicians in the government are on the take according to official figures.....and the public find it acceptable!  They calmly reply that they understand that bribery is widespread throughout society.

AFGHANISTAN RE-INTRODUCES 'STONING TO DEATH' -- Resorting to its previous behaviour, Afghanistan is back to the death penalty of 'stoning adulterers' ...... and observers see this as going back to the old ways now the foreign troops are leaving..... this again reveals the people's support for brutal and fatal punishment.

AFGHANISTAN HANGS FIVE -- If they're not stoning they're locked in the ancient ways of 1066 whilst driving expensive cars and indulging in Capital enrichment, and keeping the poor poorer.  Karzai signed the men's death warrants before enjoying his rich lifestyle.

AFGHAN LEADER ENJOYS LUXURY OF UK HOTEL AT £7,000 A NIGHT -- As his people, who are said to be some of the poorest in the World, President Hamid Karzai enjoys the luxury of £7,000 a night London's Claridges Hotel with the British taxpayer footing the entire bill for him and his 40-strong entourage.  Amid the fact that half his government are corrupt as the above article confirms, is meeting with PM David Cameron over two days.

AFGHAN PM FLEES TO SAVE HIMSELF AS TALIBAN TAKEOVER COUNTRY -- it was only a matter of days when one saw the leader of the government Ashraf Ghani parading the streets with his security guards and others pretending that all was well and that citizens were safe from the Taliban.  On the day his government quickly surrendered to the Taliban he and his select few including advisors had fled the country saying nothing to the people.  Some say he took a great amount of money with him in the process, which he denied, but few believe this to be true, as most leaders on the run ransack the government coffers to continue the grand lifestyle they had previously.  There was also the matter of billions from the American government which no longer exists and no accountability is to be had.  In addition there was also matters of corruption not addressed by the politicians and government which will remain uninvestigated.  Stoning, flogging, and hangings are set to continue as the old regime takes over using ancient laws, the Taliban are the leaders now.   (19/8/2021)

It's a case of one law for the people and one for the judiciary.

 ' Elephants, Bollywood and Human Rights Scandals '  INDIA

INDIA 'THE POLICE FRAME-UP SCANDAL'  -- There is much crime in India, but this case is a travesty that puts the Judiciary in shame.  Armogam Kounder was working in Mumbai, and was considered by police as an illiterate labourer, and an easy man to frame.  He has now walked free from the jail where he spent 11 years for a crime that was fabricated and pinned on him by Police Inspector Iqbal Bargir, who committed suicide and left a note saying ' Kounder had been framed for the crime at the insistence and order of his superiors '  Inspector Bargir was in charge of a rape and murder case in 1995, when he and officers from the Oshiwara Police arrested the 'victim' Kounder.  He was beaten up by the police at the lock up and made to confront a crime he knew nothing about.  In order to seal his fate they took him to the crime scene and showed him the 6 year old girl who had been raped and murdered. Unbeknown to Kounder, they had snared him as they had him in the crime area and left his own prints etc at the scene. Although he tried to prove his innocence, the Judges more or less refused to listen and dismissed them before sentencing him to a life-term in prison. Prison was also unkind to him in view of it being a child crime and he suffered hatred and attacks by fellow prisoners and his jailors.  If the bent cop had not committed suicide and left a conscience note, he would still be in that prison.  His Lawyer Asim Sarode is suing the police and law enforcement for compensation for 'wrongful confinement'

What about the 'superiors' in the police force that were mentioned?  What about the harm inflicted on him by police and jailors, are they being charged and ordered to stand trial?  What about the original judges who denied him proper respect and his right to present his alibi ?   NOTHING is the answer to all three....they are all above the law, because they are the law, and they are not about to compromise each other over a wrongly jailed man!!

 'BANGLADESH'  and the smell of evil

BANGLADESH --- SEDITION CHARGES ON INTERNET BLOGGERS AND THREAT TO SILENCE, the ever-growing threat by Asian Countries to act against people's views and thoughts is a menace that is stalking the free world that cries out for accountability, truth and to live without fear.  In a news broadcast it has been revealed that a Bangladesh student Molla Rana was arrested and is to face sedition charges over his blog on Facebook which referred to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.  This claim that it is conduct likely to cause rebellion is utter nonsense and the Government must have known this before allowing the police to charge him.  They say it can carry a life in prison sentence....one sees here the same attitude to criticism repeated by China and Singapore, all very anxious to control their countries (and outsiders) like dictators.  Another student, Ruhul Khandaker, who is studying in Australia is also to be prosecuted for sedition over comments on the Web, and the foreign ministry has been asked by the court to have him brought back so they can jail him! ....not much point in convicting him, that has already been decided by a law that smacks of injustice.  A third student, Nayeem Jubaer was sentenced in his absence to 6 months in jail for posting remarks on the Internet......so he will be whisked off to jail without ever having been able to have a defence........the same rules never applied to the PM several years earlier?  

The above might seem as if it is a necessary step....but research shows another picture concerning the PM Sheikh Hasina....in that she herself was arrested in 2007 by the State Police on charges of extortion.  Despite looking every part a martyr and the 'good guy' of the people, the police were held back and had to drop the charge but came up with another when the Anti-Corruption Squad pursued her on a charge of taking bribes. In 2008 she was actually indicted and charged in court, but events turned strange and inexplicably they were dropped on a technical point of law by the High Court/Appeal Court saying it was an health issue and even though two members of her family were arrested too, the whole thing melted away into the oncoming haze.

BANGLADESH POLICE FIRE GAS AT PROTESTORS -- Police Squads opened fire on factory workers who were protesting, using rubber bullets and tear gas on the third day of clashes.  The workers are asking for a minimum monthly wage to be raised...but the factory bosses are unwilling to increase the minimum wage the report says.

BANGLADESH -- PUBLISHER IS GRABBED FOR OFFENSIVE BOOK -- In a repressive country like this it is no surprise that a court has placed the publisher and two others on remand.  Muslim religion is offended easily, as the charges are 'hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims'  It says that six books were seized from the book stall by police owned by Badwip Prokshan, the Publishing House owned by Shamsuzzoha Manik at the month long book fair in Dhaka.

BANGLADESH -- WRONGLY ACCUSED UK CITIZEN FREED AFTER 2 YRS JAIL -- The report says that he was jailed over a baseless terrorist accusation.  Hasnat Karim was imprisoned after being wrongly accused by Bangladesh Police of colluding with terrorists.  Relatives contacted the British Foreign Office, but the appeals for his freedom, but they were mostly ignored by the Bangladesh Authorities that continued to believe in their police evidence which amounted to nothing.  It took two years to get him freed from the Gazipur Prison after police filed a charge sheet that did not name him as the accused.  The Bangladesh Authorities showed no concern for this nor have they arrested the officers or paid compensation.  Amnesty who watched the case said it had been inhumane and illegal detention.   AVOID THIS COUNTRY

 

Greece.....lovely holidays, but not the entire picture!

GREEK JOURNALIST EXPOSES 2,000 TAX CHEATS -- An Investigation Journalist, Kostas Vaxevanis was actually brought before the court for revealing the names of 2,000 tax cheats, because he published a list.  Publication of the story was met by outrage the report says, which blamed the Government for not targeting the cheats who evaded tax by having secret Swiss Bank accounts.  Luckily the court acquitted the journalist who faced jail.

'pre-trial detention' -- his corruption was significally worse considering how cash strapped the country is.

GREEK PRISON GUARDS CHARGED OVER TORTURE --  8 Prison Guards have been charged with torturing a prisoner to death.   The Albanian convict had been accused of stabbing a guard when he was refused leave to see his ill mother.  The Prosecutor issued warrants for the guards to be arrested....they worked at the Nigrita Prison where Illie Kareli was found dead in his cell after receiving a severe beating.    It is understood that if found guilty the guards face a maximum life sentence?

GREECE - POLICE OFFICER IN SMUGGLING PLOT --- A serving Police Officer along with eight other suspects has been arrested in connection with a plot to sell a 1 million Euro statue.  The ancient marble statue was recovered in a raid....and interestingly, the officer was with the antiques protection department!

GREECE -- COMPLAINTS OF POLICE BRUTALITY -- The report says that since the elections, there has been a upsurge of complaints about alleged police brutality.  Human Rights Groups have criticised what they say is increasing deployment of excessive force.  It was recently observed that Greek Police used plastic bullets to disperse protestors wanting a fairer country and government.  The reason for the brutality is said to originate from the election of the centre-right New Democratic Party led by Kriakos Mitsotakis in July 2019.

GREECE OFFICIALS CAST YOUNG MIGRANTS ADRIFT --- It was reported that Greece has stooped to a new low as news came in that they had two child asylum seekers taken out of a refugee holding camp by government officials, and then taken out to sea by a coastguard vessel and deposited in the sea to drift alone on a motorless rubber dinghy until it found land!  Needless to say that outrage has followed on unearthing this sordid practice and a complaint has been lodged with The European Court of Human Rights on behalf of the two youngsters.  It is said that they are both Afghan teenagers, 15 and 16 who were left stranded near the Turkish coast paddling with their hands.    (3/3/2021)

 

SYRIA

SYRIA TORTURES UK DOCTOR IN PRISON -- The UK doctor was found dead, but letters he sent out whilst he was detained in prison revealed beatings and torture to prisoners whether guilty or not.   Dr Abass Khan arrived in Syria to help the people but after only forty-eight hours he was seized and thrown into prison where he spent a year.  He said 'prisoners were beaten for gratification and forced to beat other prisoners' as he had been...  The authorities claim he committed suicide, but this was suggested as murder by his family... the authorities could have helped when he was grabbed, but they didn't because of the corruption.

SYRIA MAKES CIVILIANS DISAPPEAR -- Not only murder, but in Syria civilians are systematically disappearing without a trace.  This is blamed on a widespread campaign of terror against the population says a United nations Panel probing War Crimes.  They told the News that they had found a 'consistent country-wide pattern' of Syrian security Troops and Pro-Government Militia seizing people in mass arrests.

SYRIA REGIME -- PROOF  OF 11,000 SLAIN BY REGIME SAYS QATAR  --- A group of Lawyers representing the Arab State of Qatar claim they have the evidence smuggled out of Syria, that shows the 'systematic killing' of around 11,000 Syrian detainees at the hands of the Regime of Bashar al-Assad.  The 31 page report is to coincide with the Geneva11 talks.  It is said they want to see Syrian Officials charged with 'War Crimes'.

SYRIAN WAR CRIMES BEING LOGGED BY LEGAL TEAM -- A Canadian legal team are preparing a prosecution case against individuals responsible for crimes in the Syria War......but news is 'that no court will hear the case?'  William Wiley leads the Commission for International Justice and Accountability, a team funded by the US and several European governments.  It is said that they have been 'quietly' busy building three cases that it will have ready at the end of 2014. 

SYRIA -- GOVERNMENT PASS LAW TO SEIZE LAND -- A report tells us that the Syrian Government is passing laws to allow itself to 'unfairly' seize private property, displace residents and discourage refugees from returning.  Human Rights Watch have been monitoring events and found that in 2018 property law, known as Law 10, empowers authorities to confiscate property without compensating the owners or giving them an opportunity to appeal.  Under this rather abusive underhand Law 10, residents have just 30 days to prove they own the property they are occupying.  In addition it says that the Syrian government are putting 'obstacles' in the way preventing residents from making claims.

SYRIAN SECRET POLICE TO BE TRIED FOR TORTURE -- A report says that two former members of Syria's Secret Police are to go on trial in Germany for crimes against humanity.  Dozens of alleged victims are to testify at the trial of Anwar R. suspected of overseeing the abuse of detainees at a jail near Damascus.  R57 as he is referred to was a former Syrian officer.  The second man, Eyad A, enabled the murders, torture and imprisonment of 4,000 prisoners.

SYRIA - ASSAD'S UNCLE JAILED FOR THEFT -- The report says that the President's uncle Rifaat al-Assad. was found guilty in a French Court of acquiring French property worth millions of euros using Syrian State funds.  Having ruled that he is to serve four years in jail, the French Court also ruled that his property in France should be seized as well as a residence in London said to be worth around £26 million pounds.

 

'Singapore  friend or foe?'  (a Republic and Dictatorship)..... the latter!

CANING WRONGDOERS AND SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT AND JUDICIARY  What they do with the law is their own matter and many agree with caning for adults, and that cannot be ignored especially if the Singapore people want it.. To cane a child, even a naughty child is an abuse in law, and never on the bare because that is an indecent assault and the Singapore Government recognise that. Whether one agrees or disagrees with it adult males are caned naked and on bare bottoms and it is not considered an indecent assault of any kind; and they are given up to 24 strokes, severely administered.  In the West it is termed as state justified violence and assault, and a perversion of the law by the UK and USA. Being sent to prison and then being caned in this manner are two punishments, but the Singapore Government call it a 'deterrent ' and say it prevents crime ( but crime still goes on, and the same type of crime; drugs and loan sharks, which raises the question - is the penalty really working?)-- At first glance it looks as if this country really tackles wrong-doers, especially to Westerners and Europe where we are losing out on crime with inadequate sentencing, and one can be forgiven for thinking the caning thing is good, but  Amnesty International has lodged complaints against this country for many years who fly in the face of world opinion. Around 33 countries in the world -- 6 percent, still use judicial corporal punishment, and it does have it's support . Singapore boast ' ' A secure place to live in' and it is secure, but not in the way they want you to believe. Unfortunately Free speech is suppressed, and many world critics and lawyers have said ' that Singapore uses criminal defamation laws to silence free speech and anyone who speaks out against them '  You and them may believe that corporal punishment works, but intending it to harm and scar for the rest of the prisoner's life is obscene. The sad case we came across was --  that in 2008, a Chinese worker, Han Xin Hui who left China on a cheap flight ticket looking for work and a new life in Singapore in 2006.  He was down on his luck, he was cheated and lied to while he was in Singapore. One employment Officer took his cash and passport leaving him with nothing. Then to make matters worse, he was arrested, jailed for one month and given 4 strokes of the cane on his bare buttocks for overstaying by the country he thought would give him a better deal. He said' I NEVER WANT TO VISIT THIS COUNTRY AGAIN '  and this is a rather sad reflection on the beliefs of a country that could do better, but prefer to live the high life while treating others like outcasts.

Note: Strangely the act of ABH --Actual Bodily Harm (which the cane would do) and GBH -- Grievous Bodily Harm (the cane being given deliberately severe to scar and bloody the buttocks) is a crime in most countries in the civilised world --- and it poses a serious question on how a state can commit such an act in the name of the law?

THE UN DEFINES CANING AS TORTURE --- BUT SINGAPORE DISAGREED and claimed it had a deterrent value?

AUTHOR PROVOKES THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT - Alan Shadrake was promoting his book called 'Once a Jolly Hangman' -- Singapore Justice in the Dock  -- which looked at the career of hangman Darsham Singh the Chief Executioner of Singapore, who'd done around a 1,000 executions between 1959-2006. The book looked at the legal system around this as you'd expect from someone publishing a factual book.  The author was arrested in Nov 2010 and put in court charged with ' defamation -- impugning the impartiality, integrity and independence of the judiciary '  The state Prosecutor wanted him to serve 12 weeks in prison, but he was sentenced to 6 weeks and fined. The guilty verdict had been decided well before he was in the dock his followers say, he had however committed 'criminal defamation ' -- The High Court Judge sentenced him for ' Contempt ' normally made for someone who does not obey a court order, but the author hadn't had any order against him, nor appeared in court beforehand. Having looked at the book it is disappointingly thin on proof and not in the least as ' mind-blowing ' a piece of journalism one would have expected; others too have re-enforced this view, and some have challenged his accuracy and cited examples.  Many so-called supporting facts are said to be completely wrong and the most blatant issue around the author is that he openly provoked the authorities by entering the country when the consulate advised him not to. Shadrake lives in Malaysia and  the consequences were known to him, but he chose to ignore them, so in actual fact he deserved what he got. No-one for Shadrake came forward when we tried to contact them, which seems strange for some-one purporting to stand up for human rights, perhaps they are not so much into human rights and more into promoting publicity of a book for profit and gain, as the Singapore Government rightly inferred... and as we can see from the book, he chooses what to reveal and what not to and does not name any corrupt officer despite mentioning that he was 'aware of police corruption' but fails to explain this or point to something that can quantify his statement.......... but obviously tags this into the book for effect only!

In addition to this, we have now discovered that Shadrake like Lawyer Nair who fled Singapore has activated a Google Blog calling it 'Singapore Exposed' which in reality is a crusade to get police sergeant Rajkumar, which is a desperate attempt to gain more publicity to show what a champion of justice he is......another pathetic attempt to bring down Singapore!

Singapore said that clemency in a hanging case was granted by the Ruler, but in actual fact it is the Cabinet who decides and informs him -- and most of the Cabinet are pro-hanging and stand by executions being the solution.

Though we are no fan of Shadrake or rate him as an above average journalist deserving attention, we have gone over his claims and let you the readers decide whether he makes any difference to the Singaporeans, or gives them hope for the future:  We're going to keep this brief because Shadrake is a one horse man,  and the hangings are centre stage and most of it stays that way through the book. Any real look into Singapore is completely lacking, and that is strange considering his journalistic career and experiences he encountered in the rogue state. SHADRAKE AND THE SCAFFOLD.....He begins the book by hinting that there's something sinister in the Singapore Legal system, but takes this no further and reminisces of a week in the city telling us it was too clean and unreal, too perfect and looked somewhat false.  It goes on to say the Straits Times only prints things that the PAP allows and wants seen within the secrecy and grip of the government. And as he gets to his real mission in his book to meet up with the infamous hangman of Singapore, he says the legal system works in secret, and that politics and international trade along with high-powered business determines who goes to the gallows and who doesn't. Shadrake concentrated on Australian National Nguyen Van Tuong a young man in his 20's, whose hanging would stir up big political trouble.  After a British millionaire escaped with his moll to Britain leaving murder charges behind them, Tuong faced the wrath of Singapore, and to the authorities it was those pesky foreigners who brought drugs in and expected leniency, which Singapore could not let happen...after all, if their own citizens faced the death penalty for drug offences it would be unfair to let foreigners off or giving them special treatment.  Shadrake said that justice in the state of Singapore was biased against the weak and poor, favouring the wealthy and privileged. It was at this point he mentioned the police and lengthy interrogations which were carried out to get confessions.  He cleverly cited a case of 2004 when 23 rich members of high society were arrested after a drugs raid.  One was the son of a High Court Judge in Singapore, Judge Amarjit Singh.  The 35yr old was facing up to 18 months in prison on a cocaine charge, which was amazingly cut to 12 months, and then just 8 months after judicial intervention, and was then allowed home fitted with an electronic tag!....plus another case about drugs involving another young executive which carried the mandatory death sentence, and after negotiations was sentenced to 20 plus years in jail and 20 strokes of the cane, but on being given bail he fled the country after having been helped!.. he somehow got his passport back......then he returns to the meeting with the hangman story.

'JUST DOING MY JOB' -- these were the words of hangman Darsham Singh.  Hitler's Guards and many others who are prepared to carry out injustice ordered by the State use this as an excuse and mitigation....they feel this lets them off and when they take their pieces of silver it absolves them completely.....and it's still going on today just like Singapore.

'THE WAR ON SINGAPORE' INCIDENT --- The Netherlands people demanded that a military force go to Singapore after the hanging of 'national' Johannes Van Damme, to bring the country down in 1994. It was never carried through despite the anger and resentment, two embassy diplomats were dismissed and consideration was given to 'economically' harming Singapore and discussed after certain law and constitution analysts indicated that 'anything that hit trade and put the country in chaos on a large scale such as hitting financial institutions, embargos and sanctions were more likely to persuade and change minds in The Justice Department and Government --- something allegedly used on other occasions when foreign nationals were in the spotlight. It was said that Germany did just that! but ever so secretly and diplomatically calling for people to refrain from criticising Singapore. Strangely when one considers the 'Five Powers Defence Pact' the Netherlands could have approached three signatories -- the UK, Australia and NZ and Singapore would have just Malaysia on their side...so why didn't they? --- The USA would have sat back, as it condemned the Law style of Singapore and many other countries disliked them too, which led to diplomatic incidents. Much of this was never explained and the Singapore Government shouted loudly at world meetings that they had to deal with drug offences in their own way even if it upset other countries.

THE CANING COMPENSATION SECRECY -- Five cases of 'over-caning ' were settled in secrecy, the Government forced the claimants to settle out of court in a ' mediation ' so the people would not read how much compensation they had to pay. One claimant who got three more strokes because of a court error was said to have demanded $3million Singapore dollars, which seems fair, but they denied him this. One man got 24 strokes extra and sadly we don't know of his claim, it was hushed up. In a democratic society there is at least one case where the state has been required to have the settlement judged in a court and the sum of damages announced, just as in police payouts...Singapore does not allow this to be known or be discussed in its Press. Not one settlement has been publicised in the Singapore Newspapers?

NB. It was revealed by a former caning officer that they receive 50 cents for each stroke of the cane they give.

SECRECY OVER CANING -- It has also been acknowledged by the Singapore Prison Service that no relative is allowed to visit the caned prisoner for 15 days after the punishment; not even a private family doctor or lawyer?

Singapore's Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong may say and believe that politics do not enter into decisions, but he cannot silence critics who have many times seen that this was the case and can probably show this --- saying that the judiciary is aware of its responsibilities is not an affirmative answer--- and his phrase ' judges do justice' is only a line, a piece of rhetoric that fools no-one when you consider the secrecy over judicial payouts for 'over-caning'....... below is the blatant contradiction of his statement:

Parliament is now accused of violating the Separation of Powers -- Politics do enter decisions of a judicial nature -- This was exposed by Lawyer Mr.Kumar who is challenging The Long Term Imprisonment Law saying it clearly violates the Separation of Powers as it involves Parliament telling the courts to impose a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in jail and three strokes of the cane. The 1998 Law was needed said Parliament, but went further by classifying drugs such as Ecstasy, Ermin and Ice -- and the High Court has now to also decide if Parliament interfered by using these three specified drugs in its determination for court rulings. Mr Kumar is representing a Drugs Rehabilitation Centre Inmate who faces the sentence.....9,000 men have already been sentenced by this law since 1998.  He showed that the Judiciary was not acting impartial nor fairly.

IT APPEARS THAT THERE IS A PACT CALLED 'THE FIVE POWERS DEFENCE ARRANGEMENTS' which Singapore relies on -- with countries - The United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and itself, signed in 1971 to assist this Republic in a time of war or aggression. It seems rather strange that the Western countries in their belief that Singapore does not regard Human Rights at all do not pull out of this pact. The criticism levelled at the country over caning and the death penalty seemingly does not matter over commercial and financial interests.

SINGAPORE IS ALL FOR THE DEFENCE PACT BUT WILL NOT SIGN UP TO HUMAN RIGHTS -- Foreigners must not forget that they must obey the law as Amnesty International can tell you. There is no Human Rights Charter in Singapore or for that matter, Malaysia, and neither country wishes to be bound by a Human Rights Charter or contract. Many attempts have been made to get them to agree to participating, but the Singapore Government declines and in some cases arrest people who carry out protests on this topic. Many visitors go to Singapore not knowing that they have left their comfortable rights and safeguards many miles away...only to find when they overstep the laws they are arrested, most likely jailed and fined, and in many cases caned in what Human Rights Judges say is ' a degrading punishment where one human being employed by the state, inflicts physical violence on another human being, which is an assault on his dignity and physical integrity' ( 1950 Strasbourg Ruling in Europe). 

FORMER SINGAPORE LAWYER ON REVENGE CRUSADE -- One lawyer who now lives in America is definitely seeking to destroy the leader of the country's government.  Similar to Alan Shadrake he goes about it on flimsy facts and little research, or for that matter, truthful research. Lawyer Gopalan Nair uses tactics which reflect on his honesty and he breaches that in true style by issuing two hoax communicates on the Internet, and admits to doing so. This in itself shows a kind of deceit that earns him the label of ' bent lawyer ' and quite rightly the Singapore Government jailed him, as they did Shadrake, for attempting to bring down the government using flimsy evidence and conjecture.  His tirade of articles on 'Singapore dissidents ' is one long revenge tactic on leader Lee Kuan Yew and his family.  His cause and Crusade he says represents many dissident followers, and we tried to find some and ended up with not one favourable result. They were either invented or didn't exist. We contacted him but he did not offer a reply and we pushed further on a message forum hoping he could justify his cause, but this was not published. And what of all these corrupt lawyers he  says? he offers none, yet he was in an excellent position to write all their names down, and know them -- yet gives not the merest supporting data to even suggest this might be so. It has become obvious that although there are two sides of a story in order to analyze it he is only interested in his and winds up Singaporeans every week and month misleading them just as one would expect from a lawyer.  He says in his profile that he studied law in England, but that's no great shakes as you can see in the 'featured lawyers' on this site...and he spouts about many lawyers in Singapore being corrupt, so I think we can come to decision on what he stands for quite quickly.

On the other hand we do name 55 lawyers in our cases and 83 cops, and many corruption cases in the business sector and government which Shadrake and Nair fail to do, despite making claims between them.... it's easy to say corruption is there, but you've got to show it as we do.

TWO SINGAPORE COPS ON BRIBERY CHARGES -- We start this selection with a 'Sunday Star' story of two police officers, one an inspector who were both arrested for bribery.  The sum was $13,350 dollars disguised to look like loans.

POLICE CORRUPTION IN SINGAPORE IS REAL, but denied by the Government, as with the above cases, if a cop can try to fit up another cop, then it must be easier to fit up civilians and foreign tourists. We were in contact with a former inmate of the Shangi Prison who confirmed this, and said that other inmates talked of being able to bribe cops until the price could not be met and they were thrown to the authorities. We asked him why he could or they could not benefit from pointing out a bent cop or guard, and he came straight back with ' if you accuse an officer and cannot substantiate your claim they come down hard on you saying you are lying and that gets you caned and more jail. ' How can you get the evidence when you're locked up or the cops have searched your home and made things disappear?' We were ready to question that until we got hold of the Prison Rules, and that had an offence -- ' Making false allegations about an officer ' listed as a serious offence, which carries 12 of the cane, and extra prison time, so we know what our contact said was the truth. (see ten cops  taking bribes)

THE CLOUD OF MYSTERY AND GOVERNMENT 'FIXING' OVER NARCOTICS CNB POLICE SERGEANT? -- Much has been raised -- just as it has been suppressed -- concerning Police Sergeant S.

SINGAPORE CNB - ERROR? OR ATTEMPT TO MISLEAD? - Three years of annual error, that is what The Central Narcotics Bureau blame on computers!  This led to drug abusers arrest figures being publicly seen as 'falling' when in fact they weren't.  Many perceived that the numbers were down when used to support the crime figures as falling during the period of 2008 to 2010 inclusive. Ng Boon Gay the Chief of the CNB was publicly forced to reveal this error, and alarmingly added the words ' There's no miscarriage of justice as a result of this error'  In 2008 they reported to the Singapore public that there was 1,925 drug abuse arrests, the real figure was 2,537 a rise of 25 percent in actual terms. In 2009 a Government statement said there was 1,883 arrests, but the real figure was 2,616, almost 30 percent more, and in 2010 they made claims of 1,805 drug abuse arrests, whereas the truth was 2,887, around 33 percent, showing a steady rise of drug crimes year by year. All three figures of the 'the low kind' were presented for three years showing wide discrepancies that would have led the public to believe in 'the lower crime' rhetoric claimed by The Singapore Government, and no-one would have challenged that -- the blame on computer error is convenient, but over three years?

PRISON OFFICER IN MOLEST CASE DOES DEAL -- to save himself from becoming a prisoner!  Staff Sergeant Selvaraj Karuppiah settled the case with an apology and compensated for his offence by paying the un-named victim $10,000 dollars.

PRISON OFFICER JAILED OVER MESSAGE SMUGGLING -- A Prison Officer became an inmate himself when he was found guilty of passing a message to a prisoner and taking out one....conveying unauthorised message to an inmate is a breach of the rules....Former Officer Parameswaran Servadurai pleaded guilty to two charges under the Prison Act...a third charge was taken into consideration.  He was jailed for two weeks.

FORMER PRISON OFFICER PLEADS GUILTY TO MURDER -- Former Junior Prison Officer Lim Wee Thong faces the death penalty or life imprisonment with a caning for the murder of his girlfriend, who he stabbed to death.  He also admitted 15 offences of stealing from her.  His Lawyers are asking for the jail term and wish to have him assessed medically for suitability for caning.

PRISON OFFICER FINED OVER CAUSING DEATH -- Deputy Superintendent Lim Kwo Yin pleaded guilty to negligence and having failed to supervise to subordinate warders at the Shangi Jail in Singapore, when they restrained a prisoner who had been sentenced to reformative training for rioting and theft.  In 2007 he was around 16yrs old when he was tried and convicted, and was released in January 2010, but was recalled to prison for failing to comply with his supervision order.  The matter of this 'prison death' has taken 3 years for this officer to be brought to book (not without delay and interference from the authorities), and the family have been 'barred' from knowing the exact circumstances......the report says that the prisoner's mother is considering legal action against the prison.  The man's death was worth ' $10,000' to Singapore, that is the amount of their humanity!

PRISON OFFICER CASE TAKES NEW TURNING -- Is it another Shane Todd Whitewash?   This seemingly ordinary case appears to be taking a more sinister twist as the truth collides with secrecy and a hurry to have this out of the News.  The Second Minister for Home Affairs S Iswaran told Parliament that the State Coroner had discontinued the inquiry saying death had been established in the Criminal Court...........yet there has been a 'reluctance' to release this full report of the Coroner's Inquiry.....and a Report in The Shane Todd Case was held back when Shane's parents tried to see it.           The death of Prisoner Dinesh Chinnaiah by Warders is being challenged by the family lawyer who points out that there had been no forensic findings on how, when and where the deceased met his death.....and the Second Minister said nothing of the news that the mother of the inmate who died after being restrained at Changi Prison has launched a court bid to have the Coroner's inquiry into his death re-opened, (Aug 22/2013).....is this yet another case of the Government trying to close another disturbing case that puts the Judiciary in a bad light and reveals more than they want known?

NEWS ON ' Prisoner Death Case' (above) --- It has now transpired that the 'whitewash' is complete because the Attorney General's Chambers have stepped in and closed the new inquiry asked for...they issued a statement saying ' there will not be any further inquiry into the death of the inmate'

Update on the above case: communicate sent by our agent in Singapore relating to the Prison Death they don't want to discuss or speak of.

'Singapore Government in cover-up over Prisoner’s death in custody looks like the Todd murder incident and whitewash all over again'

Speaking at a charity gala to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Yellow Ribbon Fund for ex-offenders, Second Minister for Home Affairs S Iswaran boasted that Singapore Prison Service officers will emerge stronger from the incident involving the death of prison inmate Dinesh Raman. Well, it doesn’t quite look that way, does it? Not when the family of Dinesh Raman Chinnaiah has just written to the Attorney General, seeking approval to re-open the coroner’s inquiry into their son’s death within 7 days. 

Iswaran had told Parliament that the State Coroner discontinued the inquiry because the cause and circumstances of Dinesh’s death had been established in the criminal court. Well, if it had been so clearly established, it requires one to ask why the minister is so reluctant to release the full report of the coroner’s inquiry.. Law Minister K Shanmugam had once said the Shane Todd inquiry was fair, open and “the world can see what we have done”, yet he, too deigned not to release that report when challenged by the Todd family.

The statement relating to the request for reopening the coroner’s enquiry said that it is “in the interest of transparency and justice that a public and independent inquiry into Dinesh’s death be allowed to run its full course. His family deserves nothing less.” We could also add, the general public interest deserves nothing less.

The family’s lawyer correctly pointed out that “there had been no forensic findings on how, when and where the deceased came by his death, which is the stated purpose of of an an inquiry into the death, according to Section 27(1)(b) of the Coroner’s Act.” This flies in the face of Iswaran’s claim that the cause and circumstances had been clearly established in court. And since the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) had already emphasised that the prosecution does not have power “to compel the coroner to adjourn or discontinue an inquiry,” it looks like State Coroner Imran Abdul Hamid also owes the public an accounting for why he decided to stop work.

Whatever happens, the AGC needs to emerge stronger from this affair. In the light of recent shenanigans – corrupt elements within CPIB,  professor of law hauled to jail, top law enforcers servants nabbed by honey traps – faith in the judicial system has been badly shaken this time...what next?

Iswaran says the police already spent 28 months and interviewed 130 on the case (compared to 13 months and over 60 witnesses for Shane Todd). Surely the extra effort to clear the air can’t be that much of a “drain on the state’s resources,” the excuse proffered by the AGC as one justification for discontinuation of a coroner’s inquiry.

SINGAPORE POLICE IN PUBLIC ABDUCTION -- Captured on camera and subject on you-tube, the Police in more than an average number are seen harassing a woman and threatening her.  The officers are asked several times to explain and say from which station they belong. None do so, as she walks along the path, and as she points out several times, no other citizen is being challenged or subjected to this intrusive behaviour.  She is manhandled by the police several times, which could be argued as assault, but the police continue harassing her claiming she is in a 'Protected area' which is rather ambiguous by any official standard, yet other people are in this so-claimed area, and they are not being challenged.  In the end she and a colleague are bundled off in a police vehicle. She asks why and where they are being taken to, but no officer in the vehicle seems to know, one officer tries to seize and block the man's camera from taking pictures of them...is this natural police activity?

Incidentally, the above police incident revealed that this was a 'Special Operations' task force...ordered by who?

SINGAPORE POLICE HARASS SILENT PROTESTORS -- YouTube showed a 2006 Protest by 4 silent protestors in Singapore displaying their t-shirts with a message demanding transparency and accountability in Singapore's State Managed Pension Fund and other Government linked Agencies. Officers approached the four and circled them several times until Riot Police arrived in full gear to put pressure on them.

SINGAPORE POLICE ACCUSED OF ASSAULTS -- 'the Little India Riots'...... news has emerged from Workfair Singapore that some detainees have been the subject of police assaults taking place where no cameras are placed..... and strangely, the Public prosecutor has been requested to investigate the claims, much like the situation of 'police investigating the police' which is neither satisfactory or reassuring for justice.  In addition to this situation, the authorities have arbitrarily deported 53 'rioters' without trial!

FORMER SINGAPORE COP POCKETS 100 DOLLARS IS JAILED --- A police corporal who worked at the registration department of the police Cantonment Complex, Desmond Soh Wei Feng (attached to the Bedok Police Division) was found guilty of a criminal breach of trust when he pocketed $100 belonging to man held in custody..... he was jailed for three months.

SINGAPORE IMMIGRATION OFFICER GUILTY OF DISHONESTY -- Sergeant Edmund Jegan Anthony was jailed for nine months for dishonestly obtaining cash for his own use from motorist's cash cards at the Woodlands Checkpoint where he worked on booth patrol on the Singapore border.

SINGAPORE IMMIGRATION STAFF SERGEANT JAILED FOR SIX WEEKS -- Staff Sergeant Khusin Zaun was sent to prison for six weeks after being found guilty of submitting false information to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau. He was assigned to the Immigration Checkpoints Authority.

ANOTHER SINGAPORE IMMIGRATION OFFICER IS JAILED -- Staff Sergeant Mohammed Saqib Mohd Ghalib who worked at The Checkpoints Immigration Authority -- The Woodlands Checkpoint, admitted in the District Court to 5 charges of fraudulently forging medical certificates and making alterations without authority. 10 other charges were taken into consideration -- the Sergeant who had worked with the Authority for seven years was sentenced to four months imprisonment.

SINGAPORE IMMIGRATION OFFICER IN COMPUTER MISUSE IS JAILED -- Ng Chun Wei of The Border Watch Unit was jailed for two months and fined $9,000 dollars. He admitted to three charges of computer misuse and another charge of corruption involving bribery.  In addition, he asked for 21 more offences of computer misuse to be considered plus lying to the CPIB when questioned.

YET ANOTHER SINGAPORE IMMIGRATION OFFICER IS JAILED -- Maznah Abdulla pleaded guilty to two charges of cheating and giving false testimony to the police.  She was involved in a car insurance sting and staged a fake accident to claim insurance money.....she was jailed for one month.

TWO MORE IMMIGRATION CHECKPOINT OFFICERS ARE JAILED -- Checkpoint Officers with the ICA, Mohamed Nazrul Noor Mohamed and Lukmanulhakim Samsun were each jailed for four months for accepting bribes.

SINGAPORE CUSTOMS OFFICER CHARGED WITH FRAUD -- Officer Mohamed Yusof Abdul Rahman was formally charged with corruption.  He faced 29 counts of corruptly accepting $11,400 and 103 counts of assisting fraudulent claims in refunds totalling half a million dollars.  Five others are also on trial involved in the scam.

SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT MANPOWER SENIOR INVESTIGATOR IN SEX FOR FAVOURS CASE -- Senior Officer of Investigations Norezwan Em appeared in Court charged with bribery -- it was said that the officer obtained sexual favours from Chinese National Liu Lihua to help her stay in Singapore.  Further testimony said that the officer also met up with her at the Oxley Hotel 88 in Geylang last year.

SINGAPORE MILITARY COLONEL IN UNDERAGE SEX TRIAL --  Lieutenant Colonel Emlyn Thomas Thariyan is accused of having sex with an underage prostitute at Hotel 81 Bencoolen -- it was said that he paid 500 dollars. He is one of a number of men involved in the trials now ongoing. (Feb 2011)

GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION IN SINGAPORE -- Real and identified in a leaked document -- Corruption or a Dictator's perks? --- The Home Affairs Ministry said in a statement 16 detainees had been detained for their subversive activities which posed a threat to national security, and that they were not detained for their political beliefs--but this statement and claim was later rebutted by the government? Yet they went on to say 9 of the detainees were involved in Communist United Front activities in support of the Party in Malaya, which they said was committed to the violent overthrow of the Singapore Government and Malaysia -- and the other seven were involved in a Marxist plot to subvert and destabilise Singapore, none of which was supported by evidence.  Around this time Seow joined the Singapore Legal Service and rose through the ranks to become Solicitor General after serving under the administration of then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, and was appointed senior counsel to a Commission Inquiry. He was later suspended from practising Law for 12 months by Chief Justice Wee Chong Jin for a breach of an undertaking given on behalf of his junior law partner to the Attorney-General at that time. He was later elected a member of the Council of The Law Society and went on to become President. This eventually led to him falling out with Lee Kuan Yew after a bitter row over the politics and role of The Law Society. He was in favour of the restoration of the role of the law society to, inter alia, comment on legislation that the government was churning out without any meaningful parliamentary debate, a role which Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew took especial dislike and exception to. Lee in retaliation drew up special legislation depriving the law society of any powers to comment on any legislation unless allowed to or sought by the government.  Seow later ran for Parliament but lost marginally. Macabre events followed when he was suddenly detained without trial and accused of having received funds from the USA and advice for the purpose of promoting democracy in Singapore. According to his released diary he had been subjected to torture, sleep deprivation and other acts of inhumanity in prison and accused of being an American stooge. Whilst waiting trial for yet another charge by Lee of tax evasion, he left the country and was convicted in his absence. All these events are said to have been politically motivated and part of a pattern of lawsuits and criminal proceedings against dissenters in Singapore.

The then former head of MI5 in the UK acknowledged that without proper balanced legislation, the intelligence and security agency becomes a repressive organ of the state at best, and this was where Singapore was heading if the Law Chiefs were not being involved in passing or debating laws of the country.

In 1996 Lee Kuan Yew and his son Deputy Prime Minister admitted to receiving discounts on purchases of luxury apartments whilst in office, incidentally supplied by Hotel Property Ltd -- one director being Lee Kuan Yew's younger brother?  with the support of Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong. But no one was accused of corruption as they might have been elsewhere in the world. PAP politicians were paid salaries that superseded their counterparts in the USA or Japan?  Parliament is made up of 2 opposition members to a ruling 84 government members?  Yew controls the Press, and opposition to his rule is dealt with by fair means or foul, mostly the latter. Even today, the Judiciary is controlled by him and this is seen all too clearly in high profile incidents.

WHO  IS THE REAL LEE KUAN YEW? and what does he stand for?  Conflicting and contradictory is certainly one of the answers...and this is yet again revealed by something that happened in 1986.  ' Lee Kuan Yew and the Special Branch Officer'  --- A Mr.Yong? who claims there was gross dishonesty practised by Lee, not once but twice.  The Special Branch man apparently worked as an undercover agent for The CIA..all with Lee's knowledge in 1961 where the story actually began. There was a disagreement about PAP policy that was seen to be oppressive, especially as they would dock civil servant's pay if they didn't cooperate.  The second fallout and mistruth is somewhat more serious. This happened at The Select Committee hearing of the Legal Profession (Amendment) Bill on the 9th October 1986 -- and that this officer officer had been asked to quit as Director of The CPIB in connection with the investigations of four detectives by the CPIB following an Official Complaint by the then Solicitor General, Mr.Francis Seow.  The Officer was accused of helping out his friend Mr.Francis Seow, and having the four detectives dismissed. He said the accusation was a figment of MM Lee's imagination, and that he was able to prove that he had been appointed Director of the ISD following his time spent in the CPIB -- The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau -- he says these are glaring examples of the recklessness of MM Lee Kuan Yew who had little regard for the truth!!

Confusing? yes, but there's no smoke without fire, and somewhere in there lies a truth possibly more shocking if it were known. The central players here, The PAP, Lee Kuan Yew, CPIB, and ISD (Internal Security Department) and CIA make for a very toxic combination. Mr.Yong, being with the ISD does not bode well either as you will see in the article ' The Evils of Singapore ISD' ...and the above article could well be ' a fallout and tiff finally revealed'

SINGAPORE AND BRITAIN COLLUDE TO DESTROY OPPOSITION --- In 1963, Britain conspired and collaborated with the PAP and Lee to crush the opposition.  These 'secret' documents were revealed by Poo Soo Kai who uncovered de-classified British Archive documents relating to 'Operation Coldstore' in which the British were to assist the PAP crush the opposition before the 1963 General Elections.  Many of the Opposition were arrested under the ISA and held in detention without trial, many were tortured, and Lee approved it, once saying that 'the biggest punishment a man can receive is total isolation in a dungeon, black and complete withdrawal of stimuli, that is real torture' this is real detention for all prisoners without exception.........Britain backed Lee Kuan Yew.

SINGAPORE COLLUDES WITH MALAYSIA TO HELP DESTROY BRITISH 'ATROCITY' SECRETS -- The Singapore Government waved through several lorries through its border checkpoint in the knowledge they were carrying British Government 'secrets' that must be destroyed and incinerated at the Singapore Naval Base.  The secret material had it been seen would look bad for Britain -- it travelled down from the British High Commission in Malaysia.

THE SINGAPORE MYSTERY MONEY -- The question 'ask Mr Goh Chock Tong about the missing S$17million dollars of taxpayers money' seems to have angered the Singapore Government into libel claims etc, according to an American Observer USA student Bryan Murphy --- And by all accounts they have never answered this.

In 1995, Deputy Chief Mr Choy Hon Tim was jailed for 14 years for taking 14 million Singapore dollars in bribes for giving out privileged information --- he was a chief executive of the National Water agency.

SINGAPORE SLIDES UP TO FIVE IN CORRUPTION STATE CHART after being a relative No 1 least corruption country, meaning that it has lost it's claim to being at the bottom of the league which is measured in opposite ends. However, it is Singapore claiming it and publishing it through its Government owned paper The Straits Times which it controls, so it's claim to be more cleaner can be treated with a pinch of salt, as this is more likely a government publicity piece of propaganda. It says it has been polled by the Transparency International? saying Government corruption is getting less, and there is no real proof of this, and this press piece does not alter that.

JOURNALIST SAYS REDUCED CORRUPTION CLAIM BY SINGAPORE IS A JOKE --- Thai Correspondent, John Symons says that the rating by the Transparency International Group is absolutely farcical and could never be calculated when no free press exists...the state is holding all the cards and can make up anything it likes. He says Whistleblowers are not protected as they are in democratic countries, and they could face imprisonment.

A case in point supplied by a contact points at the matter of Singapore Technology being blacklisted by India in a Corruption Probe to Sin City? (we have no details as yet of that but will persevere and investigate it)

SINGAPORE CORRUPTION only Hidden, not resolved despite claims by Minister --- Harchand Singh, a former Branch Union Official with Semco (co-owned by the Government) says that corruption was routine government business engaged in by the PAP - The Peoples Action Party. He says he saw this over and over again until he made the mistake of upsetting one man -- Chua Eng Boon who received promotion. Singh says that Corporate life has long been corrupt but few people ever dare to speak out, and those that do are in big trouble. He tells us of how he was a union man from 1987 to 1998 and during that time he saw many 'kickbacks' usually ten per cent of the contract agreed. Singh, who is a Singaporean, says his days were numbered when he had an exchange with Boon who threatened him. In retaliation and in the heat of the exchange, Singh said he would expose the corruption and had the documents,...and then came the attempts to frame him, so Singh quickly removed himself and the evidence, which we hope to look at as we contacted him and are waiting to discover more.

CORRUPTION REVEALED --- Although the government try to hide it all, cases have spiralled and surfaced, such as THE KEPPEL O and M CORRUPTION SCANDAL.  10 Singapore firms were on the 'dirty list'  for their involvement in Myanmar, including banks D.B.S.  UOB, and OCBC and conglomerate KEPPEL CORP property tycoon Ong Beng Seng. This was a big case and attempts were made to conceal it.  But, that isn't all, two more cases were exposed -- 'Three workers from the Workers Party were involved in fraud -- members of Parliament  were got for misusing council funds, involving 8 defendants.....including MP's Pritam Singh, Low Thia Khiang and Sylvia Lim.   There was also the 'Ang Mokio Town Council Case, Victor Wong Chee Meng received 27 months in prison,   Chia Sin Lan got 21 months in jail, and it was said that they spent thousands of council money.

SINGAPORE PAP -- THE SINISTER TOOL OF SUPPRESSION --- Silencing the opposition or free-willed seems to be regular sport for the Singapore Government in its misuse of the law for its own purposes and not that of the general people. Defamation has been on a tortuous route through the judiciary and is being used like a gun or knife to wound all dissenters alike. An article recently found says that Joshua B. Jeyoretnam who was with the Workers Party was repeatedly sued by the Government and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong who it says sues individuals and others. A rebuttal issued by Singapore's Press Secretary to the Minister for Information, Communications to the Arts -- Peer M.Akbur in the Wall St Journal defending defamation actions sets about trashing the facts regarding date of the original article and spouts about the honour of protecting free speech by using defamation cases to support it which is nonsense. The Press Secretary makes no comment on the many times it was used --- as it was in the Shadrake Case and The TRE-meritus actions. No mention is made of having to apply for permission to speak in public or the fact that police are sent to covertly listen in at meetings with a view to arresting or bringing defamation suits against anyone who seriously contradicts the PAP.  There is one decision only in the court, that of the Judge in sole authority (there are no juries at all in any court) and the Government have that sown up...so the conclusion is obvious. Alarmingly, Joshua was accused of saying words in an article in Tamil? a language he neither understood or could write!! so one has to question whether this really constitutes 'evidence' and legal proof he did it, and that would not stand up in a International Court, the prosecution would have to show reasonable cause to suspect or educational evidence to support the theory he was able to understand it and write in Tamil.. Peer M.Akbur says the article at the time was found to be defamatory? and damages awarded with an apology....but this refers to the article he did not write which may have been so proved....but it appears the prosecution in Singapore has to prove very little if nothing but the mere suggestion the defendant is guilty!  This article is in support of his son Kenneth Jeyaretnam of the Reform Party who wants to see true democracy for Singaporeans.

THE P.A.P. was formed in 1954 by an Englishman! later to be headed by Lim Chin Siong, Lee Kuan Yew and Fong Swee Suan -- to bring about independence for the small Island State. Britain declined this at the London Constitutional talks, but by 1959 it was achieved but at a cost - Lim attacked Communist ideals; the Singaporean Chinese which did him harm in the long run. What followed were allegations of civil rights violations and people being detained without trial. Lee Kuan Yew won the day and many critics said the PAP had rejected Western Liberal Policies in favour of something more authoritarian. But Independence had been granted and that was it.

P.A.P --'Not so popular now, it lost ground and face when it only got 67 per cent of the vote in 2006  -- Reuben Wong said the electorate were obviously responding to a lot of public unhappiness!!

SINGAPORE POLITICS ENTER 'DIRTY TRICKS PHASE' -- Hougang residents accused the PAP of penalising voters because they decided to vote for the opposition.  Allegations of dishonesty were levelled against the Workers Party over the candidacy of Mr Png Eng Huat, who said it was an attempt to discredit them.

P.A.P. ATTACKS ON CANDIDATE designed to destroy his credibility --- Recent history reveals the case of James Gomez and the ' dirty tricks to smear his reputation' actively carried out by PAP --- aided by Lee Kuan Yew and Wang Kan Seng,  The incident revolved around an election form that PAP made an issue out of firing up the PM Lee Kuan Yew to call Gomez 'a liar' -- going onto publicly to say that James Gomez had 'perpetrated a dirty trick' when no such evidence proved it so.  But being Prime Minister, Lee didn't have to prove that, challenges against Lee always fail. His Deputy Prime Minister Wang said Gomez 'showed blatant dishonesty' -- again without proof, and would never have to do so. The 'acid criticism' by PAP during the election continued and gathered strength, saying that Gomez did not submit the required form, a form he didn't need to submit. He did claim to submit a registration form, but PAP said he hadn't.  The Government STRAITS TIMES joined in under the agreeable eye of the PM and ran more than a dozen stories to harass Gomez. It only stopped when PAP Officials began to realise it was provoking a backlash that looked set to turn on them. The Singapore Government however, continued to harass Gomez and had his passport seized when he tried to return to his job in Sweden. To make their point they had police question him for eight hours according to sources, but the Government refused to confirm this.

P.A.P MISDEEDS -  Internet Singapore Activist says a long list of misdeeds by the PAP were given to Minister Heng Swee Kiat.....but nothing came of it.  At a meeting, National Conversation, it was found that it excluded opposition members or bloggers....and appeared well supported by PAP Supporters.  They claimed the meeting was 'inclusive'      President Tony Tan claimed his best achievement in one year was going to watch the Olympics in London!

PAP AND THE TOWN COMPUTERS? -- Why did the PAP relinquish ownership of the computer and financial system and how much did they sell it to AIM for? these questioned are now to be raised in a long awaited investigation that a Minister has called for.  The background of this is somewhat puzzling. It is assumed that the system was probably developed with taxpayers money by the 14 councils, with mutual input and support from tax payer-paid town council staff, unless, and it's hard to believe -- the PAP paid for the development of the system.

PAP often make demands on other countries to observe human rights, but their past records are dismal.

It is also said by opponents, that the PAP control the elections.......and they may well have a case!

SINGAPORE'S SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE RESIGNS IN DISGRACE -- Speaker in the Government House, Michael Palmer made it known at PAP Headquarters that he was resigning his post in Government due to being discovered having a 'extra-marital' affair, and he took full responsibility for the grave mistake.  The Government and MP's were shocked it is said by the news and sudden resignation.

SINGAPORE FORMER MP CHARGED WITH CORRUPTION -- Choo Wee Khiang a former MP was accused in court of a Criminal Breach of Trust -- he is accused of taking part in a conspiracy to secure payment for a trainer who was secretly engaged in another job while taking money for the one he was contracted to (moonlighting)... Three other charges of Corruption have been deferred for a later court date.

Money-laundering convictions in Singapore by Industry and Financial institutions were two a year in 2008 and have risen.  Singapore's bank secrecy laws have attracted evaders and money laundering in recent times. An audacious banking scam by Jeanette Ang engaged in fraudulent bank transfers to Singapore from the US led to her being jailed for 9 months, and on another note, Peter Madhaven - first independent director of a financial Institution was jailed for breaking Singapore Securities Laws. Three Singapore companies involved in an elaborate 'kickback scheme - bribery' to do with Apple are under investigation, but the country's Anti-Corruption Bureau are not saying they have opened such an investigation and are remaining secretive about the matter.

SINGAPORE, THE DIPLOMAT, AND UNAUTHORISED GOLD? -- A tale of one North Korean Diplomat who was able to, with no indifference from Singapore, travel with $1.4 million in gold to Bangladesh.  It is without doubt that 'rich' Singapore know of the sanctions against North Korea, especially as the International Finance System had barred North Korea from money dealing in the International money markets.  Yet, this Diplomat Son Young Nam - first secretary of the North Korean Embassy in Dhaka was able to board a plane in Singapore carrying this gold and take it to Bangladesh....in order to sell it for hard currency (as it is suggested).        The Government of Singapore considers itself tough on crime and claims to have a rigorous customs system, catching people, jailing and flogging them etc, yet a diplomat from North Korea slips through unchallenged?  But on the other hand, Singapore is known for its love of wealth among the rich and in government, and they do business with people like Mugabe.......?

THE ANTI-CORRUPTION COMMITTEE in their quest to root out corruption have got so zealous that it has turned on them, and they are finding themselves under allegations of corruption, which is bringing a sharp focus on ' who 'polices the police? and who 'polices the corruption investigators? This kind of thing is not new, many bodies in government that set up these departments finally have the finger of corruption pointed at them. Anyone who investigates corruption needs to be free to go after colleagues or higher ranking officials, and one can see that in Singapore this is not done without trouble and undue influence to suppress such investigation which in turn will ultimately involve corruption -- corruption that will inevitably be denied, but we've heard that before many times. Their Standards Committee will have to be changed if it is to be believed to be honest.

MYSTERY OF THE FUND MISAPPROPRIATION -- As Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's lawyers refuted Mr Roy Ngemg's claim that his blog post about government transparency and accountibility, not about the unlawful misappropriation of Central Provident Fund savings......unwittingly shines more on the latter and where has these missing funds gone?

BODYGUARD TO SINGAPORE PM IN FRAUD CASE --  A former Aide to PM LEE KUAN YEW was accused of a criminal breach of trust and fraud amounting to $50,000 by an Ex-Cop who claims in a police report that he was misled into putting the money into an 'investment vehicle'.  One is also led to believe that the bodyguard to the PM -- Mr Anathan Thillagan was a policeman considering that the Ex-Cop Mr Sugendran referred to him as a fellow officer in his statement.  (Nov 26/2014).

POLITICIAN SUED OVER 'KICK ORDER' -- A Malaysian human rights group are taking a Singapore Government Minister to court to challenge his order to attach a correction to an article on its blog that accused the city-state of illegal execution practices.  News had come out that Singapore Prison Officers were allegedly instructed to snap prisoners' necks by kicking them in the event of a rope breaking during hangings at the jail.

THE EVILS OF SINGAPORE ISD -- Internal Security Department --- Detention without trial --- torture denied? all done in prison and overseen by the ISD. We look to the work of Singaporean, Chee Siok Chin who wrote a small investigatory book called 'That we may dream again' in 2009. He set out to discover the tactics and behaviour of this Singapore Unit the ISD and interviewed detainees in 1987 who were bullied and persecuted by their own government.  Mr.Lee Hsien Loong was the Deputy PM at that time, and publicly stated ' The Government does not ill-treat detainees; it does however, apply psychological pressure to detainees to get at the truth?' -- but this appears to be 'rather economical with the truth' as we reiterate the story of one detainee, Vincent Cheng who said he had great anger for the injustice of the whole incident, and that the perpetrators have not been brought to account for their deeds.  'Operation Spectrum' was said to be 'Political Rape' by those who opposed oppression, and Cheng was arrested in that sting. he said 'I cannot forget or forgive them. The harsh treatment meted out to me in prison to extract information was inhuman -- I was put in a freezing room, slapped and suffered beatings, including a savage blow to his abdomen. Another detainee, Kevin De Souza told about the many strip searches, blindfolds being put on, sleep deprivation, slaps to the face, unnatural treatment invented to humiliate and cause pain, televised interviews, solitary confinement and long term incarceration without trial.  Another detainee, Ms. Tang Lay Lee confirmed the torture meted out to detainees.

Detainee Dr Lim Hock Siew was in prison for 19 years --- detainee Chia Thye Poh was in prison for 32 years!!............THE HISTORY OF SINGAPORE THAT DISGUSTS.......Dr Lim Hock Siew Opposition Member was in jail for almost twenty years, seven more than a life sentence!  He was detained under the powers of the ISA and arrested by police and thrown into jail without a trial...1963 to 1982.  Lee Kuan Yew was in power, and like the actions of a dictator he would not tolerate any kind of challenge to his authority.  The Authorities demanded that Siew sign a statement saying he had repented, but he refused and was detained for a further 10 years. At the time of the demand he was told that Lee does not like to lose face.  The1963 General Election was rigged by The British and PAP.  Because he wouldn't co-operate, Siew was ordered to appear before the Advisory Board, chaired by High Court Judge Winslow and a lawyer called Elias, and he was brought into court wearing handcuffs.  The Charge sheet was blank, and he was told to plead guilty...he refused saying this hearing was a disgrace to the concept of Law and Justice. The Lawyer said he could be charged with contempt and jailed! but he was already in jail.  Siew was not a convict, his crime was to disagree with the ruling party, and he was labelled a dissident. But this did not stop them from sending him to nearly every prison on Singapore.  In 1973 they tried to force him into 'manual labour' meant for convicts who did awful crimes, he refused.  They then sent him to one of the worst detention places, The Central Police Station which was infested with bugs and had hardly any light.  He was put into Solitary Confinement and subjected to torture, both physical and mental.  He had no right to a lawyer, they kept telling him 'this is the law' no matter what he requested.  His case or lack of it, never appeared in the newspapers, they had suppressed the incident on the orders of the Government.  In a video of him speaking to an audience on the Internet he says that 'Politicians in Singapore enjoy the highest pay in the World, and the longest prison sentences in the World are meted out to those who challenge their views or system'...........

..interestingly today, anyone caught in Singapore copying or distributing this BANNED video is threatened with a fine of S$10,000 or two years in jail.   to see that video and see more of what is going on in Singapore that they don't like you to know, go to www.singaporerebel/blogspot.co.uk  and got to right of page to scroll down to the article EX-Political Prisoner Speaks Out......the video....and watch in amazement at what the Singapore Government was prepared to do to those it did not like.  any difficulties search for Singapore Rebel...and it will get you to the Wikipedia page.

'HUMAN RIGHTS' A SORE ISSUE WITH SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT -- Intervention by the Singapore Government has caused the cancellation of the 'opening' of the 'Handa Centre for Global Governance and Human Rights' at the Law School of Singapore Management University - a report says, and the issue is over 'Human Rights' in the title.  Our source says that members of the Government have taken a dislike to this being paraded publicly.

THE SECRECY OVER THE CANING ERROR certainly indicates a huge flaw in the honesty of the Judiciary and Government.  Making it a condition that no-one knows what was paid out in compensation to 21 yr old Dickson Tan (who got 3 strokes more because of a court error) gives rise to asking how many other secret deals are done in other areas, and those in turn being kept from the public they serve, which is in fact corruption. If there is no openness, accountability or transparency in Government payouts of this insignificant nature, how can they be trusted with the nation's taxpayers cash?  they might be doing deals with rogue businessmen and bent lawyers of which one Singapore ex-lawyer said there were many, and possibly judges, the list could be huge and no-one would be the wiser with a government that does deals behind closed doors and demands they are kept secret!!

'SPANKING IN SINGAPORE' -- Indeed, and rather unbelievable in some ways, or does the judicial caning ethos encourage a public liking for it?  We came across a site called TOPIX a Singapore Forum where people discuss and get rather high on corporal punishment in Singapore.  We've covered the Spanking and Caning Vice in Europe, the UK and America, but didn't expect to find it in Asia and especially not in a punishment regime of Singapore or one the Singapore Authorities condone, but I guess it happens everywhere on this globe - Earth.

We have uncovered more on this at 'YouTube' which has several spanking and caning video clips featuring Singapore youth, Malaysia youth, Chinese youth and Asians embracing corporal punishment --- so what does that tell us??   ( emerging news in on an online vice ring in Singapore involving around 80 males)

SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT CANING CULTURE CORRUPTS YOUTH --- A vice previously blamed on the West who banned corporal punishment in prisons and school by 1986, is flourishing and enticing Singapore men and boys to try it for themselves without going to prison or committing an offence!  Our Investigator visited the site Facebook and quickly found many guys swapping photos of caning and spanking -- many being from Singapore, Malaysia and China. Besides other fetish devotees they chat about it and link each other to the You Tube videos which in the main come from Asia. Our Investigator with difficulty chatted online to one 21yr old Singapore lad who said he got the interest after his school group visited the prison and were conducted to the caning area and were shown canes used and where males bend over for punishment. He added that quite a few school pals were secretly eager to bend over the frame and try it -- but they didn't want to be in court first or sentenced. He also said the cane was at his school for boys up to 19, and after his visit when he was 14, he sometimes looked and held the schoolmaster's cane and fooled about with mates and then rushed back to his desk as the master returned. The only thing he said was a put off, was blood-letting as experienced by the actual prisoners who suffered shock and trauma while cuts were 'bleeding profusely' during their caning........February 2012.

In yet another discovery and the caning corruption as mentioned, this case emerged: showing that caning could be an unhealthy disease.  The case of 'CANED FOR CASH' in which their was an advert where a 42 year old man offered a 28 year old $1.36 million to cane his buttocks and then burn him with a cigarette at an hotel.  It turned out after the caning was administered the man gave the 28yr old a 'bounced cheque' with a fraudulent signature. Lit Kiat pleaded guilty in the Singapore Court to forgery, cheating and theft (21/5/2016)...there were no charges laid before the court in respect of the caning.....so one can only assume that the court was okay with this, even though it constitutes assault?

TWO SENTENCES FOR ONE CRIME IN SINGAPORE? --- Years ago, the Singapore Government claimed that caning was not part of the sentence when ordering a caning along with prison...and claimed it was a kind of deterrent for assault crimes so that the offender might feel the pain they had caused.....But now in 2015 due to an appeal hearing the Government and Judiciary have openly declared that 'CANING IS CONSTITUTIONAL' and may be given to a prisoner convicted of an offence, thus proving that there are two sentences on one crime, a thing they have denied for a long time.  They defend this action as not breaching Human Rights and International Law and deny that it is torture! when administered to a secured prisoner on a frame....they also say it doesn't come under International Law.....and that Singapore has the right to flog prisoners in a manner they deem fit besides jailing them for years on the same offence.....logical? definitely not....but Singapore is still a 'veiled' dictatorship.

WEBSITE MOUSE TR Emeritus some sort of socio-political site has grovelled before its PM who threatened to sue them for defamation, and as we already know, Singapore is good at that. Unbelievably they claim the status of being a people's voice and despite calls from its supporters has already printed a rebuttal of the piece claiming no responsibility for others views and content plus condemnation for anyone that issues statements that criticize. Richard Wan needs to watch out for moving carpets and the fences he cannot sit on.  This site hardly ranks as a bastion of freedom and should be exposed for the fraud that it is. They claimed apologising over every defamative remark would cause difficulties in running the website -- but gave way again reducing them down to being another government stooge and puppy to be trained and kept in line. Can't they see that they have been nicely pushed and positioned into the subservient situation their readers are annoyed about!!

SINGAPORE INTRODUCES CENSORSHIP ON NEWS WEBSITES -- The Government in its manic desire to silence criticism is introducing licences on news websites, so as to tighten its grip on what can and cannot be said or broadcast.  Any news website having 50,000 hits a month will have to obtain a licence to operate, they will also have to remove content not approved within 24 hours....or suffer penalties.

STUDENT MADE TO APOLOGISE FOR WEB BLOG REMARKS --- Even though student Reuben Wang 17, was not repentant even 24 hours later, this changed after ' The School counselled him'   Many students on the Netizen supported his claims but thought his choice of words wrong, and fellow student Kwan Jin Yao said the criticisms were valid but were obscured by the liberal use of expletives and profanity. The ranting was the result of being in a student meeting when Deputy P.M. Teo Chee Hean was attending. Reuben said he was angry at the way the Deputy Prime Minister was dodging difficult questions by turning the questions back onto the students.

MORE CENSORSHIP, SUPPRESSION ON WEB CARTOONIST -- The Singapore Judiciary in the face of The Attorney General's Chambers have threatened web cartoonist Chew Peng Ee (Leslie Chew) with jail and 'forced' him to apologise over publishing a cartoon strip considered by the government to be 'scandalizing the judiciary of the Republic of Singapore'  they say he has committed contempt in four cartoons he put on the web in 2011 and 2012, three of them about the perceived unfairness of the courts when imposing punishment (he's right on that as our many articles testify to)...observers say it is yet another sign that Singapore is becoming more increasingly intolerant of criticisms and opponents to it's style of dictatorship government.

'RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH AND EXPRESSION IS NOT AN ABSOLUTE RIGHT SAYS SINGAPORE -- The Singapore Authorities revealed their true face yet again in the defamation and contempt case against blogger Alex Au who is challenging the Constitution.  The Attorney General's Chambers have been given permission by the Island Republic Leaders to take legal action against the blogger over an article they say is offensive in which he states ---   there is wrongdoing by senior Judicial Officials.

The government is a law unto itself in many cases ... From the beginning, parliament has been kept as a sort of rubber stamp for the PAP. I call this a castrated society."

But opposition parties, which hold two of parliament's 84 elected seats, face an all but impossible task in polls expected by the end of June. Government critics cite budget giveaways, cowed media, PAP threats to withhold state funding from opposition constituencies, mandatory voting, and what some Singaporeans call the "fear factor" as evidence that the system is stacked against them.

"People are frightened to get involved as candidates or even to help the opposition. There is a very real fear of what the PAP can do," Mr Jeyaretnam said. Repercussions ranged from dismissing people from their jobs to throwing them in jail. Like Mr Chee, he was bankrupted after defamation suits brought by the prime minister, Lee Hsien Loong, Lee Kuan Yew's son, among others.

CHEE SOON JUAN --- Jailed 4 times ,dismissed from his job and bankrupted by the government.

THE PM Lee Hsien Loong gets a salary of 3.8 million Singapore Dollars!! one of the highest paid salaries known.

Whilst on the subject of websites --- We have picked up on the fact that the hackers Anonymous have shown that Singapore are backing the ACTA Bill -- a bill and legislation to curb Internet freedom by internationally imposing sanctions on ISP's and casual web surfers.... would you believe it, Singapore wanting to curb freedom!!

DOUBLE STANDARDS AT SINGAPORE PRISON AND PUBLIC LIE --- The Shangi Prison Service boasted in its 'Public Lie'  the following in one of it's public statements --- that in jailing offenders they are ' fulfilling the multiple goals of punishment, incapacitation, deterrence and most difficult of all -- that of rehabilitation -- reformation and reintegration into society?  Yet we find that a man who committed a criminal breach of trust involving less than ten thousand dollars and went to prison 25 years ago (1986) -- discovered that the Council for Estate Agents (Watchdog) queried his criminal record just when he thought he'd left that all behind in order to get on in life as a good citizen.  The authorities claim officially to help and rehabilitate offenders to have a normal life when prison ends, which is called The Yellow Ribbon Project -- yet they allow a man who has paid his penalty to be hindered and subject to humiliation 25 years later, what happened to ' the second chance?'   The Singapore Government talks about honesty and openness, but don't deliver.

ADVERT BY SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT FOUND TO BE OFFENSIVE -- This sort of ties in with the above and really clarifies this admirably. The Singapore Ministry of Community Development have been attacked by caring Singaporeans for putting out an advert that 'perpetrates prejudice and discrimination of ex-offenders (prison), victims of abuse and people on low incomes'. It is stated four posters published in the media put these people down as not worth caring about, and should turn their back on to be excellent citizens.

THE SINGAPORE ISD and ISA --  'Detention without Trial ' - The Evil not talked about --- The Republic of Singapore as it is better known from the the 60' and 70's, a time when Singapore and torture was challenged and exposed by Amnesty International.  A story involving British participation and the leader Lee Kuan Yew and PAP....a story that reveals real evil, that to this day has not gone away.  The ISD - Internal Security Department of Singapore was run from a very unassuming little address in Whitley Road, The Heritage Centre, where one finds the Detention cells and brutal regime staffed by Ghurkha Mercenaries who did the dirty work of using torture to extract manufactured confessions.  They enjoyed no interference from normal laws, the powers they had were extreme, and they could order the police to carry out their commands without question.  People, or suspect victims were snatched in 4 am and late-at-night raids so that it avoided public query or interest. They were taken to the ISD and placed in cells to be held for 30 days and interrogated remorselessly with torture (teams were on a shift basis), and only allowed 30 minutes a day to wash or use the toilet.  The ISA law was written up by British Lawyer Hugh Hickling in 1960 outlining detention without trial, methods of interrogation and the rule 74 where the suspect could be detained indefinitely and have no access to a lawyer or see relatives... a law so oppressive and monstrous, which proved ideal for Lee Kuan Yew (1959) in silencing the opposition -- he loved the idea of keeping a prisoner in a black cell, without light or anything....that was real torture! he said.  Prisoners were kept in a cell 5ft by 7ft with no windows and the lowest watt of lighting possible....talking and singing was absolutely forbidden....penalties were harsh, such as two victims received -- a broken jaw and their teeth smashed (Pang Hee Fat and Chien Tuan Sin).  After 30 days they were transferred to prison still without a trial and kept there 'unless they confessed'              The Government would only release them if they signed and admitted their wrongdoing, so that they could tell the public and World that the accusations were true!    Many prisoners received electric shock treatment at the hands of the ISD.........The Internal Security Act and Banishment Act derived from British Colonial Legislation was used many times to silence critics, dissenters, protestors and opposition groups.....these people had no recourse to legal safeguards nor any opportunity to challenge their accusers and allegations.....they were simply grabbed and disappeared off the streets and their homes.  The Newspapers couldn't cover the incidents, they were forbidden, and Government controlled.

 Lee Kuan Yew became Prime Minister in 1959.....and this all happened on his say and watch......and he ruled for many years, even in 2008 he invented the position of Minister mentor to his son Lee Hsien Loong who took over and gets a salary of around $2.6million dollars which is not far short of the $3.870 for the PM position.  The President monthly pay was $119.520......and the PM monthly pay was $115.950.

INFO on ISD detentions are in the main kept secret and little or no publicity is given to this on their Website, and omits any reference to anything to do with the 1963 to 1980 situation, and researchers say that the police were used as a tool to crush dissenters under the 'Authoritarian Regime'............. which still exists now.

SORRY STATE OF LEGAL PROFESSION -- This item seemed to disappear as one tried to get at it, apparently, one Singaporean Teo Soh Lung made this claim after reading an article by Alex Au called 'The Ghosts of Absent Lawyers'.  Lung says - 'the sorry state of the legal profession has been in existence for decades -- it used to have a few human qualities ' obviously referring to the state's over-riding power which caused a riff between the Law Society and Politicians that revealed state interference getting the upper hand in court decisions and law.

SINGAPORE'S ATTORNEY GENERAL'S CHAMBERS CONFUSING ROLE EXPOSED -- Political and strange, as the highest legal office sends warning letter to film-maker who interviews striking SMRT drivers He Jung Ling and Liu Xiang Ying who made allegations against the police that they were assaulted in an attempt to get a false confession.  The letter says  the AGC considers the interview and videos could interfere with the court and create prejudice which amounts to contempt of court?  It also shows the prejudice of the legal profession here as we look at something else they did.  Chico Chin a demonstrator says the Attorney Generals Chambers tried to bankrupt her in 2006 over her human rights protests urging the high court to fine her $50,000.....which in most countries would be a tort of law and illegal move which in the first example would inhibit Press Freedom.

SINGAPORE'S ATTORNEY GENERAL DOES NOT LIKE THE INSINUATION ?  -- Not surprising really, as the Singapore regime were reminded about the 'mysterious Shane Todd Death' which they had hoped to bury.   Shane's parents in the USA claim that 2 pieces of evidence were 'quickly' disposed of to prevent further DNA testing.  The Singapore Attorney General reacted fiercely saying that the towel and strap were destroyed as a matter of 'protocol' rather than the cover-up that was claimed.....the family still maintain he was murdered by persons unknown and that a cover-up was instigated in order to protect another agenda the government had.

SINGAPORE JUDGE'S BIAS TOWARDS BRITISH QUEENS' COUNSEL -- Singapore openly showed their contempt again for other countries, and amazingly enough this time, it was Britain, a country that helped them gain independence, and they were proud to tell the World they based their law on Britain....but a criminal case involving The City Harvest Church and a  big amount of money gone missing revealed their true nature.  As with the Shane Todd Murder case and the Chinese Military Technology connection which triggered their refusal to allow the FBI to investigate, they have now, or rather Judge Rajah has refused to admit London's Q C Jonathan Caplan, saying the locals are okay for this....yet we find defendant Chew Eng Han went to seven legal eagles in Singapore (SC's) and they declined to defend him.....so he contacted the UK's Barrister Jonathan Caplan who agreed.......typically, this shows that Singapore is not what it claims to be, there is something nasty lurking!

SINGAPORE ARREST PROTESTORS WHO WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THE INJUSTICE OF THE ELITE GETTING HIGH MINISTERIAL SALARIES AT THE EXPENSE OF LEAVING THE POORLY PAID IN THE GUTTERS.

IN SINGAPORE YOU NEED A PERMIT TO SPEAK IN PUBLIC, you could find yourself arrested for saying things about the government or police, so be careful because this situation of repression has been likened to China, with some saying it is a little piece of communist China practising in the old ways. This is supported by the fact that Singapore's opposition ---party member Dr.Chee Soon Juan Secretary General of the The Opposition Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) was convicted by the Government controlled Judiciary of 'speaking in public without a permit' and was subsequently jailed for it.

UNIVERSITY MAN FLEES AFTER BEING ACCUSED OF 'REMARKS IMPUGNING THE JUDICIARY' -- This 1994 case should receive more International attention so here it is --- Christopher Lingle spent 20 years in Singapore never anticipating the day he would become 'a fugitive' because of something he said and printed. He was a fellow of The National University of Singapore.  He had to resign and leave quickly amid charges being brought by the Police and Judiciary for 'Criminal Defamation and Contempt of Court'  His alleged crime was that he wrote an article in response to a commentary that was published by The International Herald Tribune. The article was a general statement about repressive tendencies in some Asian Regimes, but there was no particular country mentioned. This criticism as we have seen no matter how slight, is not tolerated by Singapore more than anywhere else, except China perhaps. The Police from The Singapore Criminal Investigation Division interrogated Christopher several times, and it was obvious to him they were intent on getting him. Christopher did not wait for the court date to arrive and an almost undoubtedly -- a prison sentence.... as he now a wanted fugitive. Singapore couldn't have done more to prove the point they wanted to deny.

What we can see from the above account is that although Mr.Lingle did not specify any repressive Asian State or Country, the fact that he lived in Singapore was enough for the Authorities to assume it meant them. Legally, this is absurd...at best it's speculation and conjecture. In most countries this would be 'an abuse of process' and be thrown out.  Even if the police came forward and said they suspected it might mean? the CPS would be ashamed to follow this up. It's like accusing someone of 'he was thinking of robbing us, he didn't say so in so many words, but you'd better charge him with doing so, and jail him as a lesson to anyone else thinking of it'   A jury would have no hesitation in throwing this out....but then again, Singapore does not have a jury system or allow one to be involved in its system of law....it has a sort of appeal system, but there are few winners!

THE 'JAMES MINCHIN' CASE and his deportation over his book on Lee Kuan Yew 'No man is an Island' 1987. His deportation came swift as the angered Lee made his move.  Lee wanted to silence him, and there was only one method he used with foreigners.  Minchin wrote in his book ' from early times Lee Kuan Yew has shown aggressiveness, which was often discussed by many who tussled with him and watched him grab for power.  An old family friend said of Lee, 'he would hit anybody'  This book 'A study of Singapore's Lee Kean Yew' certainly offended him.  Minchin went on ' Since attaining office he has tended to indulge his instinct to bully and demolish.  The need to flee from untenable situations have been reduced and dignified by the mechanism of physical or mental withdrawal, power mostly removes the humiliation of being 'bested'.  He quoted the following story of a former newspaper owner now retired, who was having an audience with  Lee, and apparently having not towed the line, Lee leaned over, grabbed him by the collar and said ' I'm a thug, you're a thug, and as one to another, you'll do what I say'  

Deportations of foreigners, lawyers assisting the Democratic Party in the 1990's was kept fairly quiet due to the Internet not being in the position as it is now.  They were detained in rooms at the Airport and disallowed from the use of phones and made to board the next plane home.  Some were interrogated by The Secret Police, often for several hours before being deported.  The intimidation of the Immigration Police, and Officers from the ISD was commonplace.

FORMER SOLICITOR-GENERAL FEELS WRATH OF PM LEE:  Francis T Seow thought he knew Lee Kuan Yew quite well, after all, he was in the high position of Solicitor-General in Singapore.....he watched others around him being targeted by the PM never thinking it might come his way.  But it did, when a case he was given involved the Malaya-Singapore Airline.  This is 1988, and Jerry Fernandez the Airline Secretary 'maligned' the Chairman of MSA, who was a close friend of PM Lee.  Fernandez fled to Britain when he became aware of a plot to get him using trumped up charges became evident.  The Government and Law Minister insisted that they bring him back for trial and told Seow to issue extradition papers.  Fernandez resisted the order and it was some while before Britain could assist their 'pal'......but they did......and Fernandez was sent back to Singapore.  The lawyer acting for Fernandez wet to see Seow and applied for bail.....Seow on reflecting the proceedings could see no objection and released Fernandez on bail.  All hell broke loose as soon as the news got out,  the Law Minister and the PM's Office were greatly annoyed....and so was PM Lee.  Seow knew that an 'extraordinary amount of money had been spent on trying to get this man did not equate with the vague charges' --- he did what he decided was right and wanted to halt the expensive waste of resources.   This encounter was to lead to a direct attack, little did he expect that 'trumped up charges' would see himself arrested and jailed.  While representing a fellow lawyer detained by ISD and under the Internal Security Act....Seow having seen the PM's fury inventing charges found himself charged as an agent for the USA (Lee Kuan Yew hated the Americans), he was quickly detained without trial for 'alleged collusion with the CIA'.......he now knew what it was like to be a prisoner of the PM......he recalls a conversation which he had with Lee.....when Lee said he'd rather be feared than loved.  Seow himself  saw the dangers and fled to the USA, and lives there now.....he knows if he ever went back he'd be thrown in jail.......in the States his phone was tapped and surveillance was carried out by the Singapore Government.

PROTESTOR JAILED FOR PROTEST --- Chinese Worker Yang Wei working in Singapore made a peaceful protest over a pay dispute with his employer by climbing to a position where he could voice his complaint to the public. His Lawyer insisted a fine would suffice in court, but Judge Low Wee Ping jailed Yang Wei for 5 weeks saying that this kind of behaviour would incite others to do likewise and a deterrent sentence must be imposed.  I think this says it all about the Singapore Judiciary and confirms that free speech isn't allowed and innocence disregarded.

SINGAPORE FINES HUNGRY MAN -- In a time of great need, a Singaporean man who out of necessity broke the quarantine lockdown so that he could get food, was fined one thousand dollars, despite the fact that he had a remaining 30 minutes.  Tay Chun Hsien felt the need to go out and buy flat bread.  It wasn't that surprising to find that Singapore is ruthlessly punishing anyone that steps out of line.   (1/5/2020)

SINGAPORE BLOGGER Jiana Lai was arrested by police as she entered the Fairmont Hotel.

SINGAPORE PLAYS THE PERSECUTION CARD --- Incident at The MacRitchie Reservoir and Merlion Statue Show 2005 -- Ms Ng Chye Huay and Ms Chen Lu Jin were arrested as they practised Falun Gong's exercises at Singapore's Esplanade Park. They had been trying to raise the awareness of The Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong. Many said they had been wrongly accused and found guilty for 'assembly without a permit' and 'possession and distribution of VCD's' without a MDA certificate. What happened subsequently at the court raises much doubt about judicial impartiality. The Judge imposed a disproportionate fine absolutely designed to outway the pettiness of the charges. They pleaded not guilty and filed an appeal, but the Judge set aside due process and jailed them both for 24 weeks each!

SINGAPORE THREATENS MARCHERS AND ACTIVISTS -- Marchers and peaceful activists wanting a fairer society actually based on democracy, are being threatened and investigated by the police. YouTube shows several of those individuals who have bravely expressed their views, are being visited by the Singapore Police.  One Activist said that when you are put in front of the court for protesting, the Government Judges are throwing out human rights and supporting the accusers. And what crime has the protestor committed?  'To participate in a peaceful march for democracy'.....and what happens to the protestor, they are fined or jailed.

SINGAPORE REPRESSION CONTINUES -- Singapore continually claims it is fair and a good place to come to, but recent news showing that Four men accused of being ringleaders involved in a SMRT Bus Strike ( 6th Dec.2012) are facing charges and jail terms for asking for better wages and living conditions!  One unrepresented Driver Bao Feng Shan has already been jailed for six weeks....and 29 other bus workers have been deported, or as they put it -- repatriated!    171 bus employees stayed away from work on a two day strike to protest about how they were treated and the authorities are planning to punish them too..  What appears condemning of this authoritarian country is this -  Senior District Judge See Kee Oon agreed with Prosecutors for the need to give out a deterrent sentence ' The Courts must send a strong signal in sentencing to ensure that others are not emboldened towards attempting similar displays of disaffection over employment terms of conditions'.......two other workers on a Construction site, who were owed wages made a protest on two tower cranes, were grabbed by Singapore Police..........this is real proof that Singapore does not condone a 'free society' and persecutes to the point of imprisonment those that do not fall in line with their regime (as the Judge expressed ), which it certainly is. The Judiciary is certainly carrying out the wishes of the Government...rather than the independent claims they make to the Press.

NB Amnesty International called on Singapore to stop these restrictive laws and defamation suits to gag and muzzle critics.....but apparently this is ignored by the regime.

SINGAPORE LAW SOCIETY IN TROUBLE -- In 1986 October, The Law Society was said to be 'deficient in handling eleven complaints' at a Select Committee Hearing.  A year later in 1987 there was talk that The Law Society dare not utter a word of protest against the Government.

SINGAPORE SNUB THE INTERNATIONAL BAR ASSOCIATION -- In the 2008 meeting in which Lawyers from most countries met, representing Law Societies and Bar Associations including the Singapore Judiciary, it was openly stated that 'Singapore goes beyond recognised constraints and provisions that allow the restrictions of freedom of expression beyond these limits -- and are inconsistent with established customary International Law and should be repealed.  ' Defamation Laws (Criminal and Civil) are tightly drawn together and used in connection with its constitution in that a person sentenced to 1 year in jail or fined $2,000 dollars or bankruptcy (and the disproportionate court awards can easily bankrupt the opponent), is not eligible to stand for election in Parliament for 5 years, thus enabling these defamation cases to have the potential and prevent Political Opponents from standing for Office. The Association was also alarmed at the way PAP Officials initiated a series of defamation cases against Opposition members and never lost a case!!  Singapore is a member state of the UN, and is bound by the UN Charter to respect fundamental Human Rights...even though they failed to ratify the treaty...They denied and dismissed the Associations views and said they were Protecting the values of Singapore!!..and will rule and adjudicate as they wish even if the International Arena disagrees with it.

CANING COUNTRIES JUDICIAL MEETING -- Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei collectively met for their second judicial conference. 60 judges met at the Supreme Court of Singapore hosted by Singapore's Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong. Malaysia Chief Justice Arifin Zakaria said whatever happens in Singapore will have an influence in Malaysian Courts -- we will share common practices and see how best we can improve on them. Probably more caning offences to be drawn up for their common practices, and more control of freedom in their penal codes?

Worldwide Civil Society Groups were outraged by the Singapore Government who banned 20 delegates who were to attend the annual Bank/Fund meeting --- Singapore went further in its annoyance tactics by restricting freedom of expression and the right to assembly --- Singapore they said ' is a secure haven with no respect for human rights and civil liberties'

SINGAPORE - WHAT PRICE IS JUSTICE? -- Anyone embarking on the task of taking a civil suit to The Appeal Court has to find a staggering S$20,000 dollars as a deposit (Lawyer Mark Goh remarked in 2009 - Only litigants of 'high net worth' or those who have means to lodge an appeal can do so) 'Seeking Justice now has a higher price tag'.   Strangely for a country eager to show strength in their belief in justice, not all that long ago (referring to the World Bank) Lee Kuan Yew said ' It makes the hopeful assumption that all men are equal, that people all over the world are the same. They are not!'  If this Singapore leader really does not believe that all men are not equal, how does his government strive to build a nation 'based on justice and equality?' when he denies it exists.

WHAT JUSTICE? a blog in January 2015 mentions the case of a 71 year old man who was sent to jail for 4 weeks for causing $100 worth of graffiti, and a teenager who vandalised a rooftop with graffiti who got 80 hours of community service and put on probation for 15 months.  The blogger goes onto say that he remembers the Chief Justice in Singapore who made boast of his quality of justice relied on the situation that he was 'satisfied with his breakfast' on the day he was in court?  and furthermore it goes on to say this same Law Maker loaned his lecture notes to 'a Prime Minister' when they both were studying at Cambridge in the UK....somewhat now categorised as cheating had it been discovered.

THE MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE IN SINGAPORE  -- A report revealed that a man was jailed for 9 years and given six strokes of the cane on conviction for alleged trafficking of Cannabis --- 15 years later, the conviction was overturned by Justice V.K.Rajah on appeal on the basis of a lack of evidence provided by the prosecution at the time(1992). The court's decision was purely based on him being 'urged' to plead guilty at his trial and an inadequate representation. We tried to trace the outcome in respect of compensation, but found this 'not available' and the judge involved in sentencing him, but were denied this line.........its almost as if it didn't happen.............in fact they attempted to deny its existence...but what it proves is, he would never get back the nine years lost, nor reverse the severe traumatic caning...and Singapore doesn't care!

MISCARRIAGE No2 SHOWS UNETHICAL PRACTICE BY POLICE AND PROSECUTION -- The case of two men who were convicted of robbery and murder, were eventually overturned, and odd job man Mr Ismil was cleared of any offence by the Judge.  The case had alarming revelations -- A) Serious Lapses by the Police in that they were rapped for not following procedure in recording the statement made by the victim's husband who told them he saw only one man in the flat during the fatal robbery.  B) Prosecution Lawyers were criticised for not making known to the Defence Lawyers the statement made by the victim's husband. Even during the appeals the state prosecutors did not come clean and thought it best to reduce the the conviction to robbery with hurt knowing at this stage that the two brothers were not in the flat robbery. The Appeal Court and Law Minister Shanmugam have now said ' the police must disclose all evidence to prosecutors' he seemed to leave out the inclusion of the Defence?  and the fact that the Prosecution did know, but chose to conceal it in this case.

SINGAPORE TRIES TOO HARD TO APPEAR BENEFICIAL -- Firstly, when one reads their reply to the 'White Paper on Repression of Political Freedom in Singapore' by Amsterdam and Peroff --- a Canadian Law Firm, it comes across as Pompous. It reels of the why and wherefores citing law sittings and judicial clarification, and a rather dry account of how it had to because? and propping this up with assertions that the people were behind them without as they often mentioned ' any shred of proof' and why so? because they know the public will not speak out against them for fear of judicial backlash of course. It is indeed a strange Government that wants total control without challenge. The Dr Chee Soon Juan saga reveals a government out of control, one seeking to have him committed. because he does not represent their ideals. Dr Chee joined the SDP in 1992..he has been in and out of jail for violating rules on public speaking, fined for selling a book on the subject of oppression in Asia. Fined for writing an article...and jailed for attempting to attend an International Democracy Conference. He openly challenges PAP because he is against the enforcement of Singapore's unconstitutional laws.  Prime Ministers have sued him and he has been prosecuted for speaking in public without a permit...he's been bankrupted by his own country's government!  One is left with the question, Why all this effort to convict one individual?   Why is a state that is now so wealthy and law conscious so eager to spare no effort or money in silencing its critics?

SINGAPORE'S LOWER CRIME RATE DUE TO TOUGH LAW DOES NOT ADD UP -- Singapore's Judiciary and Government continually contest that 'they are revered by the world for their low crime rate and protection for citizens because of their unyielding tough sentences ' Yet close scrutiny (and our inside contact in Singapore who says the crime figures are actually rising as seen in a internal memo) and research, reveals in their own admissions that Drug crimes continue with the young doing more, and in just a two day period they seized S$290,000 worth of drugs. Which was followed by the biggest bust so far, estimated at $644,800 being 2.9kg of Ice and 450g of Heroin.  Recent reports show that they have more 'repeat offenders' despite the harsh punishment  (More than half of the prison population in 2011 were repeat offenders who have been in jail five or more times)-- the DPM Teo Chee Hean has said they are considering the parole system instead of the 'one-third off the sentence for good conduct'...and that three groups of high-risk repeat offenders are being put onto a mandatory aftercare scheme which is compulsory in order to combat the problem. Ng Boon Gay of The Narcotics Bureau announced in February that 26 Drug Syndicates were being busted every year; one every two weeks! Loan-sharking is virtually a weekly crime with raids being carried out netting several at a time. These offenders do destruction to property, intimidate and harass victims (the public) including assault...then there is the regular bag snatch thieves and several guys arrested for 'modesty crimes' which carries prison and caning.....yet the claim that citizens have protection and it is a safer city are still peddled in the face of this......I don't think someone having their door set alight, paint being used to write slogans and being punched will agree in certain areas of Singapore (a small State).. As for the rest, cops have committed crimes, lawyers have been caught, and business corruption exists even in government departments as we have shown......it's time for the Justice Minister to stop this moral high ground as a reason for repressive government  policies........as they would say in court 'your argument is flawed'

OBSESSION WITH JUDICIAL PUNISHMENT AND DRUGS BLIGHTS SINGAPORE IMAGE -- Regular visitor from the UK to Singapore, Dr Reece Walker has told the public that Singapore's  draconian antidrug laws and policies on severe punishment like canings and executions for drug dealers isn't working and they know it. He confirms what our insider says, and confirms that heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamines and marijuana are all available if you have the money and are prepared to take the risk of using drugs.  He says the drug trafficking in both Singapore and Malaysia is controlled by gangs who are violent when they have to be. All couriers hired are replaceable if caught and if executed, another takes their place so that there is no interruption to the supply.

NB: 'ENHANCED PUNISHMENT' apparently a person charged in court can be liable to enhanced punishment?  there is no such law or amendment in British Criminal Law, to which Singapore claims to go by, nor is it known in the International Law....we tried to find it....and there is no law in Europe allowing 'enhanced punishment'.....and furthermore, what is it and what does it mean?   Dr Reece Walker is quite right about Singapore's warped laws.

THE CASE OF THE 13YR OLD AND SINGAPORE MORAL OUTRAGE VS NEAT DEFLECTION TRICK -- January has started with a 'Public Conundrum' -- 13yr old student from India kicks out on webpage 'mouthing off' on a Facebook Blog.   Aditya Bhatia (the name he used) posts bomb threat and says he hates Singapore and criticises the government, and says he's gonna take big revenge?       So the Singapore Police arrest him under a sort of terrorism law and threat to Singapore...carrying a long jail term. The boy is 13, and words are the only thing they have as evidence.......what bomb?  could he really get one?....very doubtful....where are the elements for this serious crime? a crime that hasn't taken place. Some Singaporeans (locked into flogging) have suggested caning and jail...which is not surprising from a State that clings to the ancient past of punishment and torture, yet welcomes a cash society into profit and wealth and silicone city lifestyles of the future. They laughingly fall back on the claim that they use the cane for violent crimes of hurt....yet a recent case of two men arrested for 'illegal departure' carries 6 months jail and at least 3 strokes of the cane.... where is the element of violence here?  nowhere, yet in another case a man gets 6 months jail for beating a 12 yr old boy with a belt causing serious hurt over a long period of time......there was no order made to cane the offender? yet in this latter case there was violence....so it doesn't add up....what judicial reasoning can say this is justice.  Aren't they just going after the boy because he has upset others, and the mob want revenge....and the government see this as another opportunity to curb another critic? even though he is only 13.,,,,it's time Singapore stopped this piece of theatre.

SINGAPORE BANS PART OF STAR WARS new movie because of a 'Lesbian Kiss' it is said in a world news report.  Disney were forced to remove this section from the film because Singapore's Media Regulator said it was unsuitable for general viewing and had to be rated higher if it was to feature.  Singapore authorities made same-sex marriage and sex between males illegal carrying the punishment of up to two years in jail, caning and fines.

DEMOCRACY! the words emblazoned on 'the vandalised' War Memorial -- Singapore says they will spare no effort to get the culprits and deal with them severely, yet sadly they miss the point --- just as the case above, the young want a change and they want better rights and a different justice system....the defaced 1914-1918 Cenotaph at Esplanade Park may be shocking, but its significance to youth now might have been better if the authorities conformed with Human Rights...and let them have a say without being arrested and detained.

NO DEMOCRACY IN SINGAPORE -- The Republic does not allow it.  To muster support for a cause whether it is political or not comes under tight police scrutiny in Singapore.  The suppressive reign backed by swoops and police terrorist activities make 'canvassing' for support against unfair laws almost impossible.  The proof of this came to light when Mr Ghani stopped over in Singapore on May the 2nd on his campaign tour from Malaysia; the Singapore Police filed a report against him.

SINGAPORE GENERAL CRIME RAID BY POLICE NETS 150 PEOPLE -- On the small island state of Singapore, police in an island-wide operation taking around 18 hours arrested 150 people, who were charged with crimes such as drugs, gang related offences, illegal betting, immigration etc.  Reported on June the 10th 2012, it was said to have involved The Narcotics Bureau, Police and Customs.

SINGAPORE announces fall in crime rate as they fix the figures -- and finally admit that 'youth crime' is on the increase.  They also say that this is in the area of 'assisting loan sharks' but neglect to mention the drug situation and leave that out of their report.  (we have already seen the rise in youth drug taking and supplying earlier and mentioned this with an official verifying the rising trend back in 2011/12 -- see 'More Singapore Youth on Drugs')

MORE CRIME IN THE 'LOW CRIME SOCIETY' where crime is claimed to be down because of harsh penalties -- Another 200 people were arrested in suspected drug offences in a 5 day operation in Singapore (Aug 31 - 2012) 17 of whom were arrested for drug trafficking --- drugs to the value of $159,000 dollars were seized.  In a separate Loan Shark Operation, police arrested 22 men and women during a 10 hour operation.  14 were males aged between 24 and 62yrs, this operation was done between Tues, Wednesday and Thursday in the last week of Aug.

SINGAPORE DRUG CRACKDOWN NETS 84 SUSPECTS -- Despite claims of low crime and the harsh penalties for drug offences, in October 2012, eighty-four suspects were arrested in a five-day operation on the island state. 84 drug offenders were arrested by the CNB who grabbed S$54,000 worth of drugs, Other cops arrested 21 suspects for various offences in the Greylang area....and another police department arrested 81 people for offences of Public Order, illegal employment and immigration.....186 people in just a few weeks in an island area of 28 miles by something?......and they still maintain they have a low crime rate!

ALL NOT WELL IN SINGAPORE  - their claims of tackling crime have hit another barrier, Drug arrests are up four times more than it was seven years ago despite the death penalty and caning -- The government are now having to increase the jail time and make it 30 years plus 15 of the cane -- two new offences put into the penal code are: the illegal recruitment of the young into the drug trade -- and those who throw parties and organise gatherings that have drugs will now face 20 years jail and 10 of the cane (16the Oct 2012)  This does not come as a surprise to us as we've seen the figure of drug offences rising among the young...increasing the penalties only shows that Singapore's tough justice isn't what they claimed it to be nor is it a deterrent to criminals!

EVEN MORE DRUGS CRIME - SINGAPORE CNB POLICE carried out a five day island raid and arrested 96 suspects and seized S$25,900 dollars worth of drugs - heroin, Ice, Cannabis, Ecstasy and Erimin-5......which rather blows the theory of 'severely punishing drug offenders' will lower this offence...this is Dec 14th 2012.

SINGAPORE CNB ARREST ANOTHER 231 PEOPLE -- For various crimes around the Island State. 138 men and 93 women were arrested aged 15yrs to 69yrs.....after an Island operation which started on the 18th Dec 2012 ending on the 20th Dec, netted the 231 suspects -- 149 of whom were suspected of loan-sharking activities, illegal money lending and runners and harasses.  82 of the total were grabbed in a raid on entertainment outlets, coffee shops and youth hangouts.  The raids were carried out by the CID and CNB, and Singapore Customs.

Later news -- 20 more people were arrested on Friday Dec 21st in a 17 hour operation by police.

Year end news on crime -- 14 more people were arrested in a 10  hour operation by the CNB on the 29th of Dec. The anti-crime raids in the Eastern side of Singapore (Geylang - East Coast Park) netted suspects involved in loan sharking, drugs, secret societies and contraband.

This brings the total of such raids in the last few months to having arrested 897suspects on one small island!

The Drugs bust situation rolls on into 2013 with the Singapore CNB seizing 1.4 kg of heroin at the Immigration Authority Tuas Checkpoint when they arrested a Malaysian Courier bringing in $160,000 dollars worth of drugs.

SINGAPORE LOWER CRIME RATE CLAIMS-- HIDE DRUGS RISE: The Singapore Prison Service are currently in self-congratulate mode (Jan2013), but this was not the whole picture -- the number of people admitted into drug rehabilitation has more that doubled according to the recent figures --- in 2010 there were 688 prisoners, but now in 2012 there are 1,384...and a great number of them are between 21yrs and 30yrs of age.

New Year's Eve brings more DRUG ARRESTS -- 113 Suspects were arrested by the police and CNB in a three day operation....they seized quantities of heroin, Ice, Ermin-5 and Ecstasy valued at around $57,000 ( 31/12/2012)

1st Feb -2013 CNB DRUG RAID SEIZES BIG HAUL OF DRUGS -- The Police and CNB say they netted a quantity of different drugs - 1kg of Heroin, 68g of Ice, 188 Ketamine, 450 Ermin-5, and 98 Ecstacy tablets....they did not however, disclose the number of arrests or suspects?

90 MORE PEOPLE NABBED IN DRUG RAID (21/2/2013) -- SINGAPORE CNB arrest 90 suspects during an 18 hour island wide operation.  Police and Narcotics officers seized $180,000 dollars worth of heroin and 300grams of Ice and took into custody a 34yr old man for drug trafficking; 200 police officers were used in the operation.

85 SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN TWO-DAY ISLAND WIDE RAID -- (4/3/2013) - SINGAPORE CNB along with police went on a two day operation which netted $15,000 worth of drugs including 117g of heroin, 14g of Ice, 25g of cannabis and a small quantity of ketamine.

340  SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN ANTI-CRIME CRACKDOWN -- Singapore Police in an island-wide operation to stop crime (May 20 - 23rd 2013) caught 340 people, of which 190 were suspected of being involved in loan shark crime - there were 200 men and 140 women.

92 MORE DRUG SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN 3 DAY OPERATION -- The police and CNB scooped up drug hauls valued at $214,000 and $113,000.  They seized 1.3kg of heroin,  1.7kg of cannabis and 330 Ermin -5 tablets...and 912g of heroin and 514 g of cannabis. on June the 10th.

SINGAPORE CNB POLICE grab drug haul of heroin valued at $200,000.... 1.9kg were seized (June 22/2013)

108 PEOPLE ARRESTED IN POLICE OPERATION -- (July 6th) the CNB and Civil Defence Force arrested 21 men and 87 women on suspicion of vice related crimes, drug offences and gang involvement.

21 SUSPECTS ARRESTED in an 18 hour police operation on the Island State targeted drug-related, gambling and other criminal offences (July 10th)

SINGAPORE DRUG ARRESTS ARE MOSTLY REPEAT OFFENDERS --- Yes, contrary to the lies and propaganda peddled out by the Singapore Government in support of caning and long prison terms, in the first half of 2013 the drug offences arrests were 1,790 according to released figures... yet in the same period in 2012 it was 1,731 showing a deterioration in their deterrent effectiveness as repeat offenders are being sentenced a second time after having received a caning and jail and are back for more of the same!

SEX WITH MINORS CRIMES INCREASE IN SINGAPORE -- Devastating figures emerged to reveal that sex crime had increased especially with minors.  12 convictions were recorded in just 6 months of 2013, whereas in 2012 there were only 13 for the period of 12 months.

PAEDOPHILES DISCOVERED IN ONLINE INVESTIGATION -- Several Singapore citizens have been nabbed in a USA sweep of the Internet child sex abuse operation launched over a 5 week period.  The task force targeted online sexual predators and abusers who not only perpetrate, but produce and trade in child pornography. Some of those caught were teachers and clergy!

SINGAPORE VICE SCANDAL HITS PURITAN IMAGE -- We made mention to this earlier when around 80 men were taken by police for questioning over under-age sex. It has now hit the roof and looks set to be a major embarrassment to the Government and Singaporean Society, especially in the light of the above article of a low crime society.  This was hidden just after Christmas, and by February arrests were being made as small groups were appearing before the courts. The under-age online call-girl operation has now sparked disquiet and involves law enforcement and many representing lawyers who are preparing cases. Of the 46 so far named, they include a Police Superintendent, Teachers, businessmen, civil servants, a Naval Officer, Lawyer and Military uniformed officers so far.... namely, Singapore's economic and political elite. Prominent high society figure Howard Shaw is mentioned in the list, along with school principal Lee Lip Hong who was jailed for 9 weeks for his part.  Calvin Yew Boon Liat, Sing Kok Wee, Ng Guan Mean, Choo Yao Chuen, Kwah Wee Nam, Emlyn Thomas Thariyan, Raziuddin Mohammed Naseem, Lim Kok Tong, Chua Ren Cheng, Koh Zi Yang, Kelvin Peck Yong Li, Pyi Kyaw Han, Foo Kim Meng, Frederick Chen Kwek Kwong, Reyner Desugndo Suhartonou, Nguyen Van On, Chia Kok Peng, Low Teow Guan, Danny Wang Wee Jin, Tan Wee Kiat, Tan Wei Siong, Tan Kok Wee, Choong Sin Jian, Loh Ben Ni, Koh Ching Shyang, Qiu Wen Bo, Ken Sim Choon Wee, Desmond Quek Jin Yang, Leu Xing-Long, Ong Chee Wah, Wong Yih Yong, Chiang Meng Chuan, Lee Vin Sen, Atet K Sianandar, Lee Ching Hsuin, Fong Kok Liang, Chan Wei Kiat, Louis Lee Lip Kien, Wilson Oei, Yap Eng Kian, Goh Wee Seong, Teon Nai Jin, Juerg Buergin and Edward Whistler Goh, with more to be announced!  Squeaky clean Singapore doth protest too much!

SINGAPORE PM LEE SAYS THEY MUST TIGHTEN UP ON CORRUPTION? -- he said this in the light of recent cases involving the CPIB itself and senior officers.  He pledged there would be no cover-ups!  but a cover-up would never be known to the public, so this pledge is rather futile and meaningless without accountability.  This speech at a public forum is of course - Propaganda -- to throw off the recent scandals including the sex scandal and the CPIB.  He repeated the tired claim that Singapore is regarded as one of the least corrupt nations in the World? --- his words, the world does not share his view at all......this is the same man that said there was no corruption and crime was low.

THE UNMENTIONED RISE IN CRIME -- THE PERVASIVE COMPUTER CRIMES -- Despite the continuous claim of a lower crime rate (always aimed at drugs and the Geylang area where the poor live), Singapore, the small Island State, play down and hardly admit to a proliferation of computer crime that is fast growing in this country.  The KPMG audit firm looking into fraud (computers) identified that in 2004 -- 19 percent of firms reported computer fraud, and by 2007 it had gone up to 59 percent -- emerging as the fastest growing and pervasive category of fraud -- it also has the second highest number of ' Cyber Bullying' cases --- Some 25 per cent of Singapore students out of 3,488 said they had been bullied online. Since 2007 it has been identified as a major player in computer crime throughout the World.

THE CASE SINGAPORE HAS TRIED TO GAG --- The authorities have said nothing and pretend that this story of a 'Man who may have been murdered in connection with military technology' does not exist, but it does, and we have the paperwork:  18/2/2013 -- US Citizen, Shane Todd was in Singapore working at a government research institute working on a high electron mobility transistor, an amplifier with commercial and military applications, one partner in this is the Chinese Company IME and Huawei  (said to be a security risk by USA Law makers). Shane Todd before his sudden death, told his parents he was worried because he was being asked to do things with a Chinese Company that made him uncomfortable, and felt he was being asked to compromise American Security and could harm National Security.  He said he was quitting IME and had given a period of notice.  Shortly before he was due to leave Singapore, he was found dead.  He was found by his girlfriend who said he was packed for leaving, 48 hours later the parents arrived to find the death scene did not look anything like what the Singapore Police had written up.  From that moment, things got more bizarre, the parents approached IME and after a frosty reception, Lawyers for them said there would be no more contact!  Suddenly, the research Institute director Dr Kwong calls in co-workers who worked alongside Shane and told them they were not to discuss anything with outsiders or reporters?                Police who were called to the death scene quickly took away his computers and hard drives.  The FBI, considering it was a US Citizen, offered to help investigate, and the police turned them down twice!  Shane had been sending messages about 'the theft of Military sensitive technology at the Institute' indicating he was in mind to be a whistleblower, he'd been working there 18 months and knew much about what was happening. The Institute of Microelectronics is Singapore's high profile scientific research company....and Shane was an Electronics Engineer.  The Singapore Police said they'd kept the FBI informed of the 'murder' investigation.            It was said that the Singapore Government and other other bodies began to 'stonewall' any attempt by outside investigators.....The Financial Times Investigators who did much of the work, Raymond Bonner and Christine Spolar kept up the pace as long as they could following any and every lead, much to the annoyance of The Singapore Government and police......Shane had five folders on his hard drive labelled IME....his father on entering his son's death scene found Shane's back-up external hard drive and had it analysed....it showed thousands of work files were transferred to the pc hard drive that day....and the Todd's are willing to hand the Singapore Police a copy of what they have provided the Singapore Police send them a copy of all of the files on their son's laptops they seized...and have custody of.....an inquest is to be held in March.  The Financial Times says there are serious discrepancies in official accounts surrounding this death of a US citizen, and it raises serious questions about relations Singapore and China....and additionally the USA and Singapore?

Case Update on Shane Todd -- TWO AMERICAN SENATORS BLOCK FUNDING TO IME IN SINGAPORE --  After the mysterious death of Shane Todd (who was found hanged, claimed by the Singapore Authorities as suicide until defence marks were found on Shane's wrists etc, proving he resisted and struggled), The Singapore Government said they were deeply disappointed at the USA when Senators Baucus and Tester introduced legislation to block US funding to IME until Singapore allowed the FBI to go in and investigate -- and have full access to all evidence and records held by the Singapore Police.

Update: The Todd family walk out on case and dismiss their legal team -- as case in court begins to look 'rigged' by government and judiciary.  Certain evidence is being redefined to look like 'suicide' despite alternate views pointing to 'suspicious unexplained events' that are being side-stepped.  The Todd's are convinced that a 'whitewash' is being done about their son's murder so that Singapore can throw off the China connection they desperately want to bury.....they flew back to the USA before the end of the Inquiry.

PS It will not surprise you to know that has suggested earlier, this case has been whitewashed and thrown to the sidelines amid denials and government rhetoric......which has been expected right from the beginning.

SINGAPORE ACCUSED OF REFINING STOLEN OIL FROM NIGERIA -- here's a little item that sneaked its way to us -- which does not help Singapore's claims of no corruption!  -- The former Nigerian Presidential Advisor has openly stated that 180,000 barrels of stolen Nigerian Oil each day, is being bought and refined by Singapore Industry.

SINGAPORE CORRUPTION -- HISTORY REVEALED - Wherever corruption is on Singapore we will find it....and this next selection in addition to what you can already see certainly blows the myths that this government issues........ 'The Patrick Tan Affair' The son of a prominent figure in Government circles was given special privileges -- according to a report he didn't meet with the National Service requirements...but was still given an honour and fast-tracked into positions that nobody could figure out why.........we then have the secretive case of 'The Helicopter Bribery Scandal' when Eng Heng Chiaw appeared in court for offering a Defence Ministry Official a $500,000 bribe.  The 'sensitive' trial was held behind closed doors...and was deemed 'classified' by the Singapore Government..... we come then to 'The National Kidney Foundation Scandal' in July 2005, which still has repercussions today.  The NFK corruption case netted the Chief Executive Officer T.T.Durai who was charged under the prevention of corruption Act......in 2006 a civil action was lodged with the court for damages of $12 million which included him and four others. All of which, came to be revealed because of a failed defamation case!  Before all of this...14 civil servants including statutory board officials were charged with various offences in 2005.....and even in 2003  there were 32 civil servants caught and charged with corruption.  ( for links to this article go to  www.littlespeck.com  )

SLEW OF SINGAPORE CORRUPTION SCANDALS --- Highlights a growing problem in Singapore says a report at Aljazeera. com.  They say that many Singaporeans are alarmed at the surge of Corruption cases now happening through the courts and fringe media.....but some see it as a sign of their justice system working?  It says that Singapore said nothing when the International Community discovered that a Global Crime Syndicate responsible for rigging 100's of football matches including World Cup qualifying rounds, plus Champions League matches was being run by a Singaporean who they did not touch!   The City Harvest Church Case of misappropriating $50 million is another.  Pop star Sun Ho's husband Kong Hee is charged with fraud and siphoning off millions, some of which supported her career and failed album.  The year long corruption investigation ended with their trial on the 22nd with six Church leaders in the dock.....Sun Ho complete with bodyguards went to the first day of the trial to support her husband.  We also have the 'Under Age Sex trial' netting over eighty males....most of whom are getting prison sentences........but despite this, Singapore is keen to classify it as 'not that bad compared to other countries '........even a Dr Wolfgang Sachsenroder, a visiting Politics Professor at the Institute of South East Asia Studies, prefers to categorise it so -- ' Corruption in Singapore has not yet reached a stage where the Public should be alarmed '   Yet, Georgia Funn, Administrative Clerk for the Court (18th May) says these corruption trails have shown what kind of country Singapore has become......'The five C's of Singapore' seems to have got a new C.... and that is corruption, and that is nothing to be proud of '

SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT OWN ' THE STRAITS TIMES ' and is controlled by the authorities...The Government have the power to hire and fire.

LAND AUTHORITY EXECUTIVES JAILED FOR CORRUPTION -- Two Senior executives were jailed for cheating the government out of 12 million Singapore dollars -- a report announced --- both were not named. ...... We have traced a case of two land Authority Directors who stole 12.2 million dollars -- named as nKoh Seah Wee and Christopher Lim Chai Meng, both convicted of fraud and money laundering, so these could be that case. Koh was the Deputy Director at the Singapore Land Authority Technology Department and Meng, a Manager at the SLA. It was revealed that they had created false invoices. Koh faced 249 counts of cheating and other offences, revealing a huge elaborate fraud. Koh drove an expensive Lamborgini and invested in property, which was not picked up by the CPIB or Internal Staff, even though he was seen in it away from the Company?

SINGAPORE'S RE-ASSESSMENT OF CORRUPTION FOR IMAGE ---  Moving the goalposts for gain is not new, and Singapore obviously do not believe in the 'a spade is a spade' argument, and this certainly applied to the 'Corruption Perceptions Index' when they decided it must drop from 5th to 7th position.  Two high profile cases, one concerning The Singapore Civil Defence Force Commissioner in the 'sex for contracts' scandal and the Assistant Director of the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) for misappropriating 1.76 million Singapore dollars.   Amid a corruption case of Teh Cheang Wan caught taking cash from contractors in his Ministry of National Development Office, we see his appeal of 2014 when the judge said his actions did not amount to corruption because there was no 'third party' to induce him.  This same assessment was given to an IKEA food service manager.... when the same judge, Justice Choo Han Teck said again there was 'no third party' inducement -- yet he had ripped off the company.  In another case involving the Judiciary this time, and the Legal Profession -- a complaint against Solicitor Alvin Yeo involving 'overcharging' legal fees while representing The Medical Council -- the judge ruled there was 'no professional misconduct' as he did not prepare the invoices.  And in another strange case of the law being able to interpret how it sees fit -- we have solicitor Yang Yin who is involved in filing court papers demanding access to $1-13 million in cash while at the same time he is facing 'a criminal breach of trust' charge for misappropriating $500,000 dollars in 2010 and another count of $600,000 dollars in 2012?  Will this be seen as 'no third party inducement' and another case of corruption being re-classified in the interest of Singapore's Government and elite?

SINGAPORE FIRM SHIPPED ARMS TO NORTH KOREA -- Their pursuit of wealth knows no bounds as a report tells us that the Chinpo Shipping Company of Singapore was convicted of transferring tens of thousands of dollars used to pay for transporting fighter jets and missile systems from Cuba to North Korea in 2013.  The biggest haul of arms and related materials ever to be intercepted on its way to or from the isolated North Korea was discovered in a search hidden beneath heaps of sugar by the authorities in Panama.  The sentencing of the company is yet to be scheduled.

SINGAPORE SCAM -- it has been reported that the new worldwide scam of 'Brushing' originates in Singapore, and it is being operated by the Singaporean scammers and techies who are trying to manipulate the 'sellers ratings' on eBay and Amazon in order to look favourable and honest.  It says they send small packets of seeds out across Europe 'unsolicited' to people who do not trade with them so that they can artificially raise the ratings on selling platforms on the Internet.  The practice has been condemned as a possible danger to other territories in that these unknown seeds could prove toxic to another country's environment and economic situation.

SINGAPORE WEALTH AND SUCCESS IS BUILT ON CHEAP LABOUR --- Foreign mostly, according to a study done by one of its own officials turned dissenter and the people's mouthpiece.  He says that although Singapore is about twice the size of the Isle of Wight off the South Coast of Britain, is by all accounts overcrowded -- and this works to the advantage of a wealth seeking Government who put money before its people (not the rich ones it protects) and can just about put a high price on anything -- often boasting about its remarkable success in the finance market -- while leaving the poor, of which there are many (mainly kept in the social housing area of Geylang where the Druggies operate along with the loan sharks and red light district).  Singapore is considered one of Asia's richest and most expensive countries (where dissenters are not allowed), they made their money on the back of the poor in the deceitful knowledge of knowing the less fortunate could not react or retaliate against a brutal law system and the connivance of a dictatorial republic regime.

CORRUPTION -- MONEY LAUNDERING AND SINGAPORE --- As we have already seen there is corruption in business and government on this page, and it's not just one or two examples.  At the moment around the world, banks are involved in money laundering, which is often called 'dirty money' processing where sums of cash known to have been illegally acquired, is moved to accounts where they can be used and made to look okay.  Recent news shows that banks in Singapore handled over 6 billion Singapore dollars in 'suspicious transactions'  The figure is actually 6.13 billion dollars plus being laundered between 2000 and 2017, said to be in 461 suspicious transactions.  These publicly announced figures were from findings of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists from viewing 'leaked files' containing 'activity' reports compiled in the USA.  But, this is not the entire story, as our contact in Singapore reveals that when the Panama Papers revealed offshore tax evasion and avoidance, some of this was also happening in Singapore, which is considered by the outside community as a place where the rich can benefit from a 'favourable tax system'...but Singapore would deny this as they do in many other areas when challenged. (2020)

SINGAPORE SECURITY BOSS IN $15 MILLION BANK RIP-OFF -- Lee Chin Khuay, the director of Gatekeeper Resources was jailed for one and a half years for defrauding banks. He made 117 bogus applications using fictitious invoices and was also accused of laundering funds.

NB: The following item also contains a reference to the 'Laundering of drug money in Singapore' suggested by Taiwan which annoyed them!

SINGAPORE ANGRY OVER 'LEAK OF SECRECY' attack Taiwan Press for report on the secret Military Meeting involving Taiwan'sd Minister of National Defence, Kao Hia Chu, which has now led to a suspension of military cooperation. Singapore was said to be unhappy that this meeting had been revealed. The Taiwan Newspaper retaliated by saying 'Singapore have a cheek in trying to control outside journalism -- they kick up a stink if anyone tries it with them' suggesting they use companies as a way of possibly laundering drug money? What is now known is, that the Singapore Authorities did nothing to deter this?   Another sad and disturbing fact is -- It was also a known thing before the millennium that arms dealing and an arms industry is a Singaporean speciality -- European arms made under licence went to regimes like Pol Pot and Sadam Hussein....British manufactured arms went on to buyers through Singapore with false end use certificates.  Arms for Iran were secretly sent via Singapore, and in 1990, BMARC secretly supplied a shipment of arms and ammunition to Burma through Singapore -- it was openly said that Singapore was 'an aid in a time of need' and was twice this for SLORC...Singapore is considered an important 'back door' for regimes in need of weapons.

SINGAPORE PRESIDENTIAL POWERS ARE 'MUTED ' BY GOVERNMENT -- Minister K.Shanmugam made it plain that the newly elected to be President cannot publicly challenge or speak out against the Government without acting against the Constitution, Law and Foreign Affairs. He can only act and speak as advised by the Cabinet, as he will not hold any executive power, which means he is a mere puppet whose strings are controlled by those who want no changes.  The last elections were in 2005, and now Businessman Andrew Kuan of the JTC Corporation wants to be elected.  He has been around the island talking to local people saying he wants to hear them and be the next ' People's President '  He also stated that he wants to share the ' unfiltered voices' of Singaporeans -- which indicates that the Government put pressure on critics and suppress any real opposition to their decisions, hence the fact he could do very little for changing things...especially not in Law or the the Constitution, which in fact that people's voices will be just as 'filtered' as they were before...

SINGAPORE EX-NNP PARTY MAN SAYS Any civilised Society should accept and embrace a brutish Government - these were the strange but true words of Calvin Cheng...which rather explains why Singapore is like it is.

CLAIMS OF CLOSENESS OF TIES BETWEEN SINGAPORE AND USA ARE RATHER FLAWED, and we give you the following reasons: Foreign Minister to Singapore, K.Shanmugan is in America making claims that the USA have a special bond between them -- (we saw such claims in the government paper The Straits Times, but it has suddenly disappeared on their on-line edition) because they now have warned the USA not to use rhetoric and words of condemnation on China suggesting this could cause strife in Asia (this coming on the heels of the USA and UK calling China and Russia despicable at a UN Meeting over Syria). Singapore needs trade with China so the reason is plain to see.  We now see more on why Singapore and the USA could not be the buddies as hoped;

America 1993 and the outrage over Michael Fay, further outrages concerning other American citizens treated to Singapore laws --- Amnesty and the Foreign Office US are collecting data on human rights infringements every year and are the only ones able to record what is happening in the country's system of punishment. Singapore claimed victory over the Americans by caning Fay --- saying that they'd seen this mighty power cringe and walk away with its tail between its legs.

Philippines relations were strained with Singapore, and they vented their frustration at their own government who they requested should take action against Singapore after Flor Contemplacion's hanging....diplomatic relations broke down for three years .... even today, that anger still exists against Singapore.

Australia was furious with Singapore - Attorney General Philip Ruddock condemned the Singapore Authorities saying the hanging of Australian born Nguyen was a barbaric act --- Singapore rejected five pleas for clemency -- one  was from John Howard the Prime Minister of Australia.

Singapore and Australia it is said -- are in a joint defence pact and have been bowing to each other as a recent meeting (Sept 2012) indicates. How quickly the Aussies forget, and play politics -- and how nice for Singapore to know it has them at its feet --- its intentions have been seen for many years as its arrogance grows stronger.

The Netherlands were another country that positively hated Singapore and its people called for armed response against Singapore --- we have featured that article earlier.

So this chummy claim can only be based on arms bases, business investments, strategic ties and little else as we bring you some facts and history related to how China fits in with Singapore from the 1990's to now:             Mr Shanmugam, who says that the law in Singapore applies to everyone as he pals up to China can be explained quite simply -- China has great holdings in Singapore, in other words -- leverage!   HPL -- Hotel Properties Ltd are a Chinese Corporation owned by Property Tycoon Ong Beng Seng (who we mentioned in The Keppel Corruption Scandal) -- they have a huge portfolio of properties in Singapore including 50 per cent of HRC Holdings backed by Chinese Business Groups. Another Chinese mogul is the Salim Group owned by tycoon Liem Sioe Liong -- it is known as an investment vehicle --- and runs the United Industrial Corporation Property development -- Singapore Land Subsidiary being one of the largest property firms in Singapore. One can plainly see why China is more important to the Singapore Government.

One thing Singapore keeps quiet about is --- China said in the 1990's ' The jewel in the Chinese Crown is Singapore ' which seems to explain why they so readily come to China's aid.

More on the above --- SINGAPORE SITS ON FENCE AS IT STIRS UP CHINA -- US WRATH --- Despite his visit to the USA --Minister Shanmugam has been at it again, ---On his recent visit to Beijing, China where they are praising him for 'ticking off the Americans in his warnings of rhetoric and anti-Chinese dialogue -- he appears to be playing both sides. Neighbours to Singapore have stronger views on China --- The Philippines' who are not buddies with Singapore have allowed the US to build up a greater Military Presence on seeing China expanding its territorial claims in the South China Seas!!  It may come to 'choosing sides' warns Asia --- and Singapore may end up in the mud...and instantly lose three members of the 5 members defence pact - maybe they know that considering their new move to closer military ties with Malaysia?  see below.

At the present Singapore are enlarging their defence capabilities with Malaysia, and only Malaysia?? Could this be to get ready for China's bid to take the Spratly Islands in The South China Seas?  Trouble has been going on there recently with China reasserting itself, and its new found strength of 'muscle flexing' in the area, after all, they have been wanting these 60 strategic islands for many years because China considers control of the South China Seas as an essential prize they must obtain for military and mineral reasons (oil rich deposits). Singapore obviously wants to be assured of a 'friendly relationship' in that event, but at the same time have a plan B. which is a sort of ' wait to see which side wins and then join them because you supported them anyway '

SINGAPORE ACCUSED OF MEDDLING IN THE SPRATLY ISLANDS --- The Philippine Star revealed that Singapore was meddling in the issue of the Spratly Islands --- an issue involving China. It claimed that Singapore had no business in the Spratlys because it is a non-claimant country -- 4 main and two others -- Malaysia, Brunei, Vietnam, and the Philippines along with Taiwan and China have a legitimate claim -- so why does Singapore want to be included?  In 1998 a regional code of conduct was established within the South China Sea in order to create peace and security.  Suddenly, Singapore steps forward wanting to be involved directly in the activities of the islands (there are already 10 signatories to the declaration). Is it seeking to get in and benefit from the oil and mineral rich area for nothing?

SINGAPORE GETTING READY FOR WAR? --- The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute has made a report claiming that Singapore is the 5th biggest arms buyer in the world...as it buys a range of Artillery Rocket Systems, Fighter Jets, Battle Tanks and Seahawk Naval Helicopters. One has to look at recent activity in the Singapore Government and meetings held. It's a small place to be buying so much in the weapons of destruction area.....one doesn't spend huge sums on arms in a peaceful country to just look at....they are clearly bought for a purpose other than just defence....are they planning to give assistance to one of their treasured neighbours?

'Singapore Getting Ready for War' part two --strange developments -- Singapore seems to be playing a strange game as it now warns of a US-China War, Singapore's Defence Chief Ng Eng Hen was in Washington on the 4th of April urging the US to have more engagement in Asia and referred to the US as a 'Resident Power'...he made much of the US-China Conflict and told some he was very concerned about a war,,, yet we suggested and worked out that Singapore held this knowledge many weeks ago as it became engaged in arms buying and cementing closer ties with China, as you can see from our articles. Is this Singapore climbing into bed with both sides in a bid to benefit either way?

SINGAPORE RESORTS TO MUTE LEGAL JARGON AGAINST REUTERS REPORT --- The Reuters report on Singapore allowing Iranian Cargo to pass through its port cannot be all wrong as they indignantly protest and claim --- the fact they have retaliated with issues such as 'confused several important legal points' only tells one that they are looking to interpretation of the law, and anyone who has studied law knows that this means whatever a judge may choose in his opinion from a choice of several other meanings, The fact that they rebut the report on Iran Sanctions being breached shows how sensitive they are right now over the China issue.

SINGAPORE MAKES WAVES --- Indonesia says Singapore has refused to ratify an extradition treaty with them until they get their way over a defence pact. Indonesia say they rejected a proposal that Indonesia's Military have a say over the scope of naval exercises by Singapore that are held on Indonesian territory as part of the pact.  Indonesia wants the ratification of the extradition treaty because it says it wants to track down fugitive business executives who owe money to the state and ran down over the border and into Singapore. 18,000 Indonesian key clients with more than a $1 million reside in Singapore and have assets of 87 billion dollars. Of course, the Singapore government denies everything said and have blamed it on Indonesia!!

SINGAPORE PLAYS THE JAPANESE CARD! -- Having extolled their relations as chums of China, just how far one will go to profit by a situation has arrived in Singapore --- in that they have now announced friendly bilateral defence ties with Japan.....their one time enemy, and still in conflict with China....another great pal of Singapore!

SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES -- Interestingly, and possibly another missing piece in the jigsaw, we have noted that China is introducing an Internet search engine in Singapore! --- Baido Lab with the Singapore R & D Agency - A*Star....concentrating on?  yes, you might have guessed it -- a search engine allowing users to conduct searches in the southeast Asian language. ( Another aspect could be to identify protestors and bloggers who criticize both countries, something very likely)   You might ask is this odd? but consider this, in the region -- China claims that Asia countries primarily use the Chinese language...Singapore have English, but appear to be turning away very covertly and backed by China to do so. It was once acknowledged that Singapore was  previously known as 'a Chinese run island' - and this subtle move certainly indicates something more than what it pretends. Singapore is cosying up to China as we have shown -- is China about to wage a land grab and begin the next war situation with Singapore on its coat-tails?

Interestingly in addition to Minister Shanmugam's China friendship --- 3 years earlier, Lee Kuan Yew brought China' s wrath upon the country when he suggested on behalf of the Singapore people that Asia needed the USA. 

MALAYSIA ACCUSES SINGAPORE OF INTERFERENCE --- This time it is Singapore doing all the denials, as it emerged that some of its Foreign Affairs Officers (Diplomats) were present at the Bersih Protest Rally in April at Kuala Lumpur. Some reports say that two or three officials were taking sides, but the Singapore MFA said they were not trying to interfere in Malaysia's Domestic Policies and that the delegation were simply - 'impartial observers'  (the government line)

SINGAPORE ANGRY OVER ACCUSATIONS OF BEING A REFUGE FOR 'DIRTY MONEY' AND FUGITIVES FROM JUSTICE --- Eric Tan Chong Sian, Director of Singapore's Corruption Investigation Bureau refuted claims made in the Jakarta Post - the 11th of Sept -- that said Singapore was a safe haven for criminals with their ill gotten gains.

SINGAPORE IN TENSION WITH INDONESIA OVER AIR POLLUTION --- News that Singapore were angry with the smog that engulfed the Island Republic State in its worst air pollution in sixteen years led to a diplomatic tiff as the plantation firms in 'slash and burn' land clearing in Indonesia caused the region's air to be thick with smoke.

SINGAPORE AND WIKILEAKS -- 'The Revelations' -- From the 251,000 cables released, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia were shown not to be that open or truthful -- what they admit to on a 'specially prepared' forum is an exercise in cover-up and carefully fed statements.  Three of Singapore's Ministers -- of the Foreign Affairs Ministry were revealed to have secretly trashed Malaysia in 2008 and 2009. Peter Ho, Bilahari Kausikan and Tommy Koh made remarks concerning the Malaysia Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim saying that he'd been set up by the government on 'sexual perversion' charges and that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak could face a murder charge (of Mongolian Transalator Atlantuya Shaaribuu), plus the the possible issue of fleeing Chinese Malaysians 'overwhelming' Singapore in the event of unrest and a purge on them. Even comments about Malaysia being a corrupt country were published as spoken by Singapore diplomats in communicates.

THE SINGAPORE BLOG AND DISSENTERS MYSTERY -- Myth or Manufactured?  -- We have at several times tried to track down this band of protestors --- but alas, they disappear.  We tried one recently, the mystery CPIB man who blogs as --  Singapore Recalcitrant....and got nowhere....and again with Gerry Heng...who featured on blogs......but all our e-mails bounced and came back.....so where are these people.....and what's their game?

SINGAPORE NEA THROTTLES THE THE LIFE SUPPLY OF SMALL BUSINESS ---The National Environment Agency uncaringly hit a Street Vendor with a rent rise that smothered the entrepreneur to bankruptcy. Chenwh492 as he names himself for safety reasons was appalled when the NEA arbitrarily increased his father's food stall at Old Airport Road by 36 percent (nearly a thousand dollars to fifteen hundred) a price he couldn't afford. He says the letter of notice was callous and impolite and did not take into account the circumstances of the vendor. They indicated that he ought to find alternative locations.....and this was after building up a life-supporting business for three years in that area. This doesn't convey a picture of Singapore fairness, furtherance of opportunity or economic pride for everyone they boast about...this is the other side of that one-sided coin.

DEAF EARS IN JUDICIARY as foreigner pleads against sentence for man who robbed his flat -- David S Powell lived and worked in Singapore for two years, and on returning from a trip, found his flat had been burgled. He was told by the police the robber had been caught and was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 strokes of the cane.  Mr Powell saw this as excessive and the caning as barbaric, and went to appeal to have this sentenced reviewed because he was the so called wronged citizen, but was told it had nothing to do with him and that the man had been caned and would serve the sentence.

SOME 'HOME TRUTHS' ON SINGAPORE -- Singapore is about twice the size of the UK's Isle of Man or Isle of Wight, about twenty miles long and eight to ten miles wide, not big at all for a country....yet, a lot has gone on over the years, some things never revisited such as --- Their connections with Burma in the 90's when it joined ASEAN, which is primarily devoted to making money, and has hardly any interest in Human Rights or Democracy. Burma is in fact very keen on enriching the drugs trade, and Burma is one of Singapore's biggest investors. It is said, the sanctimonious Lee Kuan Yew is often lecturing the world on Moral Purity of Asian Values and the need to engage constructively with oppressive regimes (such as Burma) -- is at best a joke, and a poor one at that. In 1996 when Lee was in overall power, the Bangkok NATION reported that Burma's drug lords -- Ling Ming Xian and Lo Hsing-han who head the major multi-million drugs trade in Upper Burma, frequently made visits to Singapore  and set up

THE BLATANT CONTRADICTIONS:

It is said that Singapore's real achievement is 'Social Control and its Attendant Fear' making democratic debate impossible.  They have a great desire for oppressive uniformity -- a trend the regime has responded to with relish and aggressive support -- The Racial Harmony Act prohibits sermons on social and political issues saying they are irrelevant?    What one can easily identify here is numerous contradictions to what they preach and what they do....they hang druggies, yet deal with drug producing countries...they appear to embrace ties and tourists and despise violence...yet cane over-stayers and immigrants who haven't raised a fist to anyone? Another conflict in their claim of 'the cane is there for violent crimes' is absolutely flawed by a 2013 case of two thugs, Hock and Chong 46 and 41, (both within the caning age of 18 to 50) were described as 'being one of the worst cases of violence against a public transport worker in Singapore (and several passengers on the bus) -- the level of hooliganism was appalling, audacious and shocking' said the judge, but they both got 15 months jail (no caning)....yet the authorities say the reason they must add a caning is because of violent crime?  One recent case involving two suspects in Drug Trafficking ended up with one going to the gallows and the other getting life imprisonment and 24 strokes of the cane? (what the caning serves to do is mindless, he's no threat to the public he's serving life in jail, so it could not be seen as a deterrent to him)  Muhammad Ridzuan Md Ali 28, is going to hang, his friend, Abdul Haleem Abdul Karim 30 is getting life in prison (plus the cane) and they are both guilty of the same crime.  He appealed to Judge Tay Yongkwang to be fair and let him hang alongside his friend....the Judge said 'the court dies not have complete discretion to do whatever you want me to do, you have a certification from the Attorney General's Chambers -- your friend does not'   Yet, Changes in the Law in 2012 gave Judges the discretion not to impose the death penalty on drug couriers..... so yet again we find the Judiciary being steered by the Government.... and....the claim to keep the cane doesn't add up!

THE SINGAPORE ACTIVIST MYSTERY -- When one trawls the Internet Pages and eventually finds the bloggers and dissenters putting up videos and other material, The Democratic Party being a huge contender here, one quickly accepts something is going on......even if it isn't......one of several of those people 'want the outside international community to take notice'......but,,,,,we tried to make contact with these so-called 'urgent cries for help' and we found 'no one'......not a single reply........having thought about it, it could well be the PAP inventing an opposition so that they remain in power and create a sort of enemy to fool the citizens into trusting the PAP absolutely.....much like the Police and Security services using deflection methods to hide covert operations.

ANIMAL CRUELTY CASES ON THE RISE IN SINGAPORE -- THE SPCA say that according to new figures, animal cruelty has gone up by a fifth in 2012 and looks set to rise further.  Last year there were 1,017 reports of abuse against animals, some beaten to death, legs cut off, poisoned and cats slashed.

SINGAPORE COPS CARRY GUNS -- Unlike the British, Singapore follows the USA tradition of Gun Law, which could make a visit more dangerous......and it ties in with their penal codes and why they are heavy on anyone carrying a replica or fake gun.

MORE SINGAPORE YOUTH ON DRUGS according to figures issued on users after increased arrests -- the age of drug users is said to be rising with the teens in Singapore -- up by 45 per cent (Singapore Press 2012) Drugs and the death penalty have stirred up ill feelings and is condemned by the UN -- but research tells us that most of this drug trafficking comes via Burma, a country that strangely has some influential business deals with Singapore?

FOOTBALL MATCH-FIXING RING ARRESTED -- Based in Singapore, Fourteen people have been arrested in the global (International) football match fixing network.....run by leader Dan Tan Seet Eng. The ring was first discovered by the Europeans who told Singapore that they had found the ring operating there.  It took mounting International pressure to get the Singapore Government to do anything...as they didn't feel the need to get involved and Tan just laughed the matter off.  It now appears that 12 men and two women have been arrested.

EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS DON'T MEAN MUCH SAY SINGAPORE MINISTERS --  In a reversal of the many cries throughout the years for students to excel and grab certificates and degrees --- Ministers turn back the clock!   NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT MINISTER Khaw Boon Wan said ' You own a degree! so what? You can't eat it if that cannot give you a good life, a job.... it's meaningless '     EDUCATION MINISTER Heng Swea Keat said ' That a good qualification alone does not guarantee a career, let alone a job '    ACTING MINISTER FOR SOCIAL AND FAMILY DEVELOPMENT Chan Chun Sing said ' Soft skills, not a degree, are the most important thing for young people to learn '

A   UK Diplomat said the ideals of Singapore is to make money first and foremost, and that meant preferring to forget that a Foreign Power provided the set-up for the acquisition of wealth. Some who see the Singaporeans are repelled by their self-righteousness based on nothing but deceit. The thing often not mentioned is the shame of 1942 and Singapore's surrender....the appalling military disaster and shameful disgrace in Britain's Imperial History. The British had a duty of defending Singapore, not only because of Britain's 'other interests' but the British Might that suddenly vanished. The hollowness of Britain's promise was laid bare and exposed...so much so that today, no Singaporean mentions February 1942.  They lean more towards the USA who rode in, and with the Atomic Bomb brought down their captors the Japanese.....and strangely enough, the USA does all it can for Japan these days to ease their conscience of that decision to nearly obliterate that country...to end a war.

SINGAPORE HIDES BEHIND PROPAGANDA - Singapore may show off its cars for the wealthy and make claims that it is a rich man's paradise --- but behind the facade of lies it hides the simple truth 'that is a con'  the country or better described as 'dictatorship' is corrupt and this corruption has been aided and abetted by the UK, Australia and New Zealand to a greater or lesser extent --- reason being?  that it suits their governments to see it like this.  This country ignores its stand on 'torture' -- the added torture of prisoners, which it clings to as 'Internal Affairs' and its Secret Police State that can do anything without fear of being brought to book -- Yes, its Security Police besides locking people up can force confessions using any means....the Government interferes with the Judiciary and the AGC do as they are told.  They have recently hidden facts in a Prison Death Case and closed the inquiry....luckily they are now being sued over the dead prisoner....and then there was the 'Shane Todd' case which was closed by the government amid accusations of their arms links with China and a firm dealing in secret projects..... Singapore may look clean and prosperous, but one should look at how it came about.

'OPERATION COLDSTORE' and THE UK/SINGAPORE CONSPIRACY --- De-Classified documents unearthed by Poo Soo Hai show that Britain was secretly involved at Government level to be actively engaged in crushing the democratic opposition in Singapore's General Elections (1963) so that the 'infamous Dictator' Lee Kuan Yew could take power unopposed. The UK collaborated and conspired with Lee's Party (PAP), who are still running the show now, despite several attempts by other parties to change things. Many who did oppose them were jailed without trial while the UK did nothing.  The UK knew that Lee Kuan Yew was ruthless in his quest for power.  Using ISA powers, Lee suppressed opposition while Britain backed him, and one speech made by Lee spoke of this nasty belief ' The biggest punishment a man can receive is total isolation in a dungeon, black and complete withdrawal of stimulii -- that is real torture'......and he allowed the ISA to employ this to people who were not criminals, nor had they had a fair trial....they merely opposed him at the elections....one of those men Dr Lim Hock Siew spent nearly 20 yrs in prison because he would not sign bogus confessions or keep silent about what was happening.  The Newspapers said nothing nor did they write about it, they were ordered not to, and Britain just backed away knowing they had turned a blind eye to torture, and kept this a secret.

SINGAPORE'S DIRTY LITTLE SECRET --- 'The Indonesian 'Little Shooting' which murdered thousands' --- was revealed after de-classification of UK Government files detailing a covert operation directed from Singapore in the 1960's, when they assisted a plot to kill hundreds of 1000's of members of the Indonesian PKI, but mostly wiped out farmers with no Party allegiances!  The story began in 1965 as the Foreign Office files show that Britain aided in the slaughter of more than half a million Indonesians, many of them opponents of the then present dictator, General Suharto. In a cable the then British Ambassador in Jakarta said 'A little shooting in Indonesia would be an essential preliminary to effective change' suggesting a covert exercise directed from Singapore and with the Singapore's Government Knowledge and cooperation.  This was the UK's Labour Party secret too, although it was to hit the Indonesian Communist Party, it was also a massacre of the poor.  Singapore never makes this known.....and the British Ambassador at the time was Sir Andrew Gilchrist....and this item became an official secret for both parties because it was deemed to be 'sensitive'

'SINGAPORE EVIL PAST EXPOSED --- One sometimes has to wait and see what rises to the surface, and in this case it took a twist of fate and an account we've been waiting for....a former prisoner taken at Singapore who was forced to work on 'the bridge' -- the Thai-Burma Death Railway bridge on the Mekong River.  He suffered two years of 'forced labour' under the Commander, Captain Noguchi, a vile man who would try to break a man to the point of rebellion so that he would be justified in executing them.  Men were whipped on trestles with canes across their bare backs and buttocks for the slightest of things (sounds familiar)...some of the Singaporeans sympathised with the Japs and did very little for British soldiers taken prisoner and held in Singapore prisons, many soldiers were too weak at the camp hospital, they were too sick to walk, let alone march off to work.  He said the conditions in which they were kept were horrendous, and that beatings were regular.   That man was Private Symon of Suffolk who wrote some of this in his diary, but vividly kept the memories of his captivity in his mind and never forgets it. His son says he walks out when he sees history being twisted by the ones that made his life hell.....and Singapore does that all the time.

SINGAPORE, WHERE THE POOR LOSE OUT....in fact they're priced out....they have no say really...and the very wealthy get more rich.  A Report has just announced that Singapore is now the World's 'most expensive' city to live in.  The wealthy are actually increasing, but only in the stockbroker financial belt....which the Singapore Government encourage.  The survey (2014) concluded after looking at 131 cities, that it is the most expensive place to run a car (and quite a number have Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Rolls Royce)...where the cost of living has risen quite rapidly.....and where the rich dictate the laws and who they want shoved out of the country -- They have all the rights!

THE SINGAPORE HIDDEN SCANDAL  (2019)

  Results of the study, which were released on 8 November, uncovered about 1,000 homeless people in Singapore, were “sleeping rough” 

The study also noted that more than half the homeless people observed had frequent encounters with public law enforcement agencies, such as police officers who were responding to public complaints about them sleeping in public areas. In such scenarios, the police would then ask them to move to another location, effectively not solving anything. By treating the homeless as ‘less than’ human, and by denying their basic needs for shelter or a safe place to sleep every night, we tie their self-worth to owning a house or having a house to return to—a privilege that only certain socio-economic sectors enjoy.  But this privilege is enforced and deepened by existing policies and social and cultural narratives, all of which only serve to justify our decisions about who has rights to public spaces in Singapore. Mere bureaucracy might reinforce the shame that is inherently attached to the stigma of being homeless. Being asked for documentation that they don’t have might emphasise the feeling that they aren’t ‘legitimate’ citizens deserving of basic care. Yet this red tape is often invisible to those who are already privileged, and who, in turn, place an inordinate amount of blame on the homeless for not wanting to help themselves. More than 50% had experienced one to five years of homelessness, while more than 30% had gone through over six years of being homeless. The study reports that “persistent street homelessness combined with constant instability characterises their housing insecurity and indicates the considerable challenges of exiting homelessness”. After all, the absence of economic, social, and cultural privilege creates a fertile breeding ground for shame. Our conversation around homelessness cannot neglect its impact on mental health, the mental and emotional benefits of having a physical safe space, and the resulting shame of being constantly disadvantaged by various policies.  

In Singapore, having a physical space to feel safe in is an often overlooked aspect of looking after one’s mental health. Without this space, Singapore’s homeless citizens lack an intrinsic sense of self-worth and value to their community, resulting in a deep-seated shame that’s tied to their socio-economic standing. 

SINGAPORE AND HONG KONG COSY UP TOGETHER --- In yet another move by this government, they yet again position themselves to take advantage of a situation, which is what they do as they move across the chess board of life seeking cover and gains in easy moves that the other fails to see. They recently set up a 'travel bubble' together, city to city for overseas links....which has its main reason in 'economy' rather than friendship...and Singapore will do anything to keep wealth up to their expectancy.

The strange case of the Russian and Singapore Law being altered?

SINGAPORE - A 22-year-old Russian man harassed flat occupants on behalf of a loan shark to whom he owed money, and even gave him access to his own bank account.  Vladimir Danilenko, who is a diploma student in Singapore, was jailed on Thursday (Dec 3) for 14 months and fined $30,000.  Court documents did not state which school or course he was attending.  Seven other charges for loan-shark harassment were taken into consideration during sentencing by District Judge Shaiffudin Saruwan.

First-time offenders of loan-shark harassment can be jailed up to five years, fined between $5,000 and $50,000, and caned up to six strokes. (penal code 325 to 332  -- 2008) 

For his offence of assisting a loan shark to carry out the business of moneylending, Danilenko could have been jailed up to four years, fined between $30,000 and $300,000, and caned up to six strokes  (penal code 325 to 332 --min/max 6 strokes of cane --2008)

Caning is mandatory according to the penal codes for harassment in connection with loan sharking, the Russian had seven other charges but ‘escaped the cane?’  He was a first-time offender with 7 other charges of assisting a loan shark and harassment. Conviction carries a caning.    (4/12/2020)    Was there a deal made with the Russian Authorities?

NB; most of the featured crime - corruption, police, lawyers etc was taken from just a 3 to 6 month period, and that is high for a colony area which is in fact city size and a little bit more - now turned state and country.

SINGAPORE HAS NOT RATIFIED THE INTERNATIONAL COVENANT ON CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS -- MAKING RESTRICTIONS   ENFORCEABLE --- SINGAPORE'S RULE OF LAW IS NOT FOCUSED ON DEMOCRACY.

TO BE FAIR TO SINGAPORE, CORRUPTION EXISTS IN ALL GOVERNMENTS AND POLICE.......BUT SINGAPORE DENIES THIS............They are not alone!

Note: What we show here is not the full story but a mere scratching of the surface...we will look for more. 

Twelve related articles of note: -- (1) Professor Hussein Alatas made the observation that corruption is least pandemic in Malaysia since Independence in 1957. He goes on to say corruption has definitely been growing especially in public office, customs, police, the courts and various Ministries.

(2) 'Singapore should cease violating fundamental rights citing self serving Historical and Cultural excuses that only tarnish its global image' --- Report by The Human Rights watch, New York. February the 3rd 2011.

(3) Singapore's Government says it's laws are protecting the people and its culture -- the sacrifice of certain freedoms for the good of the economy and prosperity requires a strong law,  --- this strangely echoes what Adolf Hitler said '  The individual is nothing. The group is everything -- When group rights get the upper hand, gone are the 'inalienable rights' given to the individual by his Creator'

NB: Hitler says he drew his inspiration and belief in the above from The American Declaration of Independence?

(4) Lydia Loh of the Insolvency and Public Trustee's Office, an agency of the Singapore Government, has denied Activist Dr Chee Soon Juan permission to leave Singapore to go to a conference in Oslo.  He was invited by The Oslo Freedom Forum in connection with The Human Rights Foundation to speak over three days - the 7th,8th and 9th of May. The operators who have booked his passage say he is being penalised for criticising the Singapore Authorities.

(5) One Singaporean observer said ' This obsession with flogging is a real sickness in Singapore in epidemic proportions, and because of this, has become a pariah internationally '

(6) It is said Singapore suffers from the 'Kiasu Syndrome' = 'Afraid to lose out, or fail'

(7) Singapore have no studies published, nor release any statistics on punishment, prisoners and the judiciary, but the judicial system grants the police absolute power.

 (8) Singapore in meeting with China again discussing Maritime Law Enforcement in the South China Sea! -- Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean went to Beijing to meet Communist Party Member czar Zhou Yongkong of the Politburo to discuss security-- law enforcement, cyber crime and maritime law enforcement --- which points to recent aims of Singapore to crush dissenters via the Internet with partners, China, who are equally disposed to the same ideal, and for the same reasons -- plus maritime discussions, which points to China's activity off the Philippines and Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, and their intentions of getting them,  and as we have already seen; Singapore's interest in trying to be involved commercially despite not being a signatory to that treaty ...repressive law, well, both of them indulge in that.  Lastly -- The English and Chinese language in Singapore that nicely places them in a position to benefit from both the West and East in the event of a war that Singapore expects- (see Getting ready for war part two - Singapore Defence Chief Ng Eng Hen in Washington)

 (9) Singapore has three Judicial Acts that allow immediate detention without trial -- The Internal Security Act, The Criminal Law Temporary Provisions Act, and The Misuse of Drugs Act vehemently and rigorously applied by the Police of Singapore.

(10) Singapore makes 'minor' changes in Death Penalty Law -- claiming they wish to appease 'modern day thinking'  -- so they claim?  However, they still remain 'doggedly' steadfast to the idea that Judicial Murder is a good thing -- it is quite clear there are no Christians in the Singapore Government and Judiciary or the people for that matter --- In the Bible the fifth commandment says 'Thou shalt not Kill' -- but they have their own perverse version handed down by the ancient Gods of The Rising Sun.   Lastly, their ancestry, mostly from China, murdered and butchered many without ever being hanged...so murder is one of their traits, yet they act as if murder now should receive the death sentence when their relatives engaged in it like a way of life.

 (11) Singapore and China get together to build strong bilateral relations between each other --- indeed, a meeting with China's Security Chief Zhou Yongkong and Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister looks very cosy and more than just a coincidence? They claim they can learn from each other, and why is that? China's recent mood is convincing us all that a war looms, even Singapore said that. China thinks nothing of intimidating its rivals and shows a willingness to bully anyone especially as its economic power builds...it is for this reason alone that the threat of war is certainly real, and will come. It is said by a few Western journalists now focusing on China and its recent behaviour, that it is becoming a dangerous nation...and although Singapore is not willing to admit it, they and other nearby Asian countries are hitching themselves to US defence. Japan has already installed new US anti-missile radar systems! and of late, there has been several defence drills involving US troops in Asia and around the South China Seas.  America has already confirmed they have sent several battleships to the region.

 (12) Singapore is in the United Nations? -- it maintains the right to cane and flog prisoners? -- it signed up to the United Nations Human Rights Convention against torture? or did it?  -- we see Jamaica has abolished whipping of prisoners as 'degrading punishment -- an anachronism  which violates Jamaica's International obligations and was preventing  the government from ratifying the United Nations Convention on Torture -- which tells us they were unable to join unless this practice was abolished.....yet Singapore continues to use it....so how did they get in....and why were they allowed to override the convention requirements?

NB: While Singapore continues to cane....think on this -- Dr Maggie Atkinson (Anti-smacking of children) says that Physical Chastisement is an abuse and a criminal action, and that 'You are forbidden from striking another adult and from physically harming your pets under British Law and in many other countries in the civilised World'  Dr Atkinson is The Children's Commissioner for England who says allowing children to be smacked is wrong and morally unjustified as the Law says hitting another is assault and criminal.   Singapore modelled its courts and justice on British Law, yet orders the assault to be carried out on defendants found guilty of certain crimes along with a jail sentence........why isn't Dr Atkinson and other campaigners taking Singapore to task Internationally? and why isn't this seen as 'indecent assault' when they strip prisoners naked to be thrashed while up to seven others are in the room watching as the caning is being administered....are we looking at money, power, and politics?

(13) After a lull or brief stay on executions, SINGAPORE HANGMAN begins again, as two men were hanged in July 2014 returning the status quo and indulging in canings too.  In May 2020 Singapore passes death sentence a drug dealer, Punithan Genasan sitting in his cell was condemned to hang by judges on video link using a conference App Zoom.

(14) 660 CASES OF CHILD PHYSICAL ABUSE, which included caning were investigated in Singapore by the Ministry of Social and Family Development a report revealed in 2019.  Cane marks were found in 21% of the cases and 55% of other bruises were said to be of another type of injury, as it only quantified two types....corporal punishment and other!  The children in this investigation were 7 and 8yrs old and only mentioned boys. It was said that corporal punishment for children was still allowed in families, and that the cane was recommended rather than a hand.  It quickly chose to say that parents who use corporal punishment in the home rarely set out to injure their children!  Lawyers in Singapore looking at the legal parameters, said 'instead of banning corporal punishment, education and awareness have a larger role to play in curtailing child abuse' and went on to make it clear that physical punishment is necessary, but wouldn't use the hand, just the cane in cases 'when the boy has done something really wrong'.....it was quite clear that they had difficulty quantifying abuse and deciding where a parent overstepped the line in administering punishment to a child.  The only person who said 'let's move away from caning and corporal punishment for our kids' was Ho Lai Yun, who released the report, and he also said that the effectiveness of caning is misguided...... a lone voice in the wilderness, so nothing will change there.

And for extra measure 'CORPORAL PUNISHMENT AND CANING IS LAWFUL IN 150 SECONDARY SCHOOLS, the report said caning was lawful on boys of 12yrs to 18yrs old, and that these were mainly boys schools.  In 2018 there were 13% of Primary Schools in Singapore using the cane, and  it was confirmed that they caned male students and limited it to 3 strokes to any boy found in breach of the school rules.

15) LEE KUAN YEW Dies -- and interestingly, a Western newspaper article sums his life up as ' he traded freedoms for prosperity and a nanny state that flogged prisoners, granting powers of detention that were unlimited in their application allowing a brutal security regime to quell those who questioned it and took anyone to court for comments contrary to his rule.  It was also mentioned that his 'vindictiveness bordered on vendetta situations' and that as a child he was denied a pet canary so he plucked out all of its feathers to get back at his parents.  He once pioneered human rights and attacked detention without trial prior to becoming the PM, and said repression is a habit that grows, and later strengthened detention and brought in strict repression along with a tight reign on law and the citizens......that only Hitler could admire (and Mugabe of course).

PS. If you are thinking of a holiday in Singapore, take these three points into consideration, 1) their culture may be quite an eye-opener despite the English Language being spoken  2) there are dangerous snakes at large anywhere on the Republic Island State -- a Deadly Cobra was faced off by a cat in their Labrador Park area of the City........other snakes have also been known to be coiled up and asleep in door wells and apartment blocks. 3) On entering Singapore your children especially boys of 14 and over could face a caning for any mess they get into and not leave for months or years if found guilty.

And lastly, Singapore is not good for your health.

We do have a lot more on Singapore, mostly the same, and have decided to halt, as we've come to the decision that  SINGAPORE IS THOROUGHLY CORRUPT!

Update:  In the light of a recent caning of an offender aged 31, formerly from London, we are revisiting the 'crime scene' SINGAPORE and the case of an 'admitted drug offender' who was given 24 strokes of the cane across his bare buttocks' and 20 years in prison!.  Being a former British citizen from London, this unlike many others caned every week without anyone being slightly interested. hit the news headlines and attracted a government response too...which failed of course.  Singapore has an arrogance in these matters and went ahead as usual.  As we have said, behind the gloss of the thirst for a rich modern look, there hides deep corruption and a history that they conceal.  This State and 'dictatorship' pays no heed to human rights it doesn't like or permit, or international norms they consider unprofitable.  Ye Ming Yuen was immensely stupid to do drugs in this country.. and he should have known better -- he did also offend twice, and then used every appeal possible to delay the inevitable. its laws are well known to its citizens, and they are harsh...yet he moved to Singapore in 2007 when he was 17.  He actually committed two offences in 2016 and 2018, and his lawyer appealed the case on the argument whether two canings of 24 would be concurrent or separate (the authorities have actually caned one offender with 48 strokes), and the Law Minister in 2008 S.Jayakumar said there is no law here forbidding the courts to order more than 24 strokes, they can if they wish.  They can and do order that a repeat offence can be caned on a second occasion, and that happens.  It was however alarming to hear the Minister of Home Affairs admit the caning was not official punishment but added on to the jail term so that the offender comes out of jail a good reformed citizen, having been caned, it will last longer in their minds, the stigma of having their bare buttocks caned brings shame and they become a changed person?  He said suspended sentences, community orders and strong words of disapproval only invites more crime which will not be tolerated.  In 2010 they admitted that 6.614 males had been caned in that year, 2009 it was 7,405 and in 2008 it was 7,451...all official figures from the Prisons Ministry......and even though it's 2020 they still continue the practice of flogging, and pretend this fits in with the modern world society. (2020)

NB: Yuen's appeal result landed with his lawyers 24 hours after the caning was imposed! which gives clear indication that it meant nothing!

PS: It is unbelievable that a judiciary could ignore the fact that the State Caning is a 'legal assault' actually intended to cause bodily harm, and that Singapore continues the barbaric assault whilst having on its Penal Codes that one can be found guilty of 'causing harm or hurt to another person' which strangely carries a caning sentence of 12 strokes minimum and jail term...yet the Judiciary are immune from carrying out this crime, one of their own listed crimes, and ignore this.  The Singapore Penal Code has 54 offences that carry a caning penalty (2010) The Law Reform Committee of Singapore.     Amnesty said that they sit every year and add more to this, and keep secretive on the issue of canings in the Prisons that are not decided by the court and classified as internal discipline...awarding 12 strokes to difficult and inmate misbehaviour.

THE CANING OF JUVENILES -- BOYS under 16, can be sentenced to a caning under penal code 325 to 332 by the High Court when the decision to cane has been referred to it by the Juvenile Court or District Court and a magistrate has given the sentence of corporal punishment in his or her deliberation.  Juvenile boys are taken from the court to Queenstown Remand Centre to be caned (where Michael Fay was caned... and not Shangi Prison) and also carry out a training course. This was Ministry Information in 2008.  It does pride itself by saying that the Reformatory Accounts at the centre confirm that all canings have been carried out in full (6 to 10 strokes).  We also discovered that caning had been reintroduced in the schools for boy pupils,  and found a video showing teenagers of 13/14 picking up the cane on schoolmaster's desks in a Singapore School taken on a iphone or smart phone.

Note: we did uncover a document referring to the Penal Code which says that 'the law defines a youthful offender is a person between 7yrs and 16yrs of age, and can be punished by caning according to sentencing procedures and High Court permission/ justice minister.

We discovered a 1994 Education Ministry Document on caning in schools --  'CANING STEPPED UP AS SINGAPORE TARGETS SCHOOL OFFENDERS' -- All teachers in Singapore have been given the right to cane schoolboys in a tough campaign against classroom crime and delinquency.  Until now only the principal, vice principal and authorised senior staff have been allowed to administer corporal punishment.  This has failed to control the surge in stealing, vandalism, gambling, alcohol and drug abuse, smoking, rudeness and even the gangster culture...all found in a survey of our 160 schools.  The Education Ministry said yesterday that the 'type' of problems encountered by schools has changed, reflecting the changes in our society.  The Education Spokesperson warned, 'As good discipline is a necessary prerequisite for teaching and learning, the Ministry will continue to enforce discipline in all our schools.  Schools will not hesitate to cane pupils where appropriate, the worst boys will be expelled'   The Government believes that stern treatment helps to keep Singapore relatively free of crime. He said in addition, most parents of caned boys will be told after the thrashing has been administered so they understand what must be done. (September 26th 1994)

PS: One can't help wondering why the campaigners who fought so hard to ban smacking and school beatings, having successfully accomplished it in the UK stay absolutely silent on this and do nothing when they say they want it stamped out in relation to children?    One can only arrive at the answer that they care very little about other children around the world or even adults who are being given corporal punishment as a legal sentence, yet they visit countries like Singapore (when they go on holiday or invest in some financial deals)  Rather amazing eh? In the 70's and 80's you couldn't shut these people up, they lobbied and yelled at the top of their voices about how beating and corporal punishment was wrong.....but now, they are nowhere to be seen.

To start off we discovered something that will interest all mothers.......

'WE CAN COMMIT BRUTAL CANINGS BY LAW, BUT PUBLIC CANNOT'

This case we discovered certainly shows that the authorities reserve the right to inflict brutal corporal punishment in their judicial and prison system, but this same right is not given to the residents of Singapore despite being given the right to use corporal punishment at home and school.  British woman, Audrey Price, married to a Singaporean, was jailed by the District Court for four months for beating her two adopted children of 10, and 6, a boy and girl.  She told the judge she caned them for lying.  She admitted she was having problems with the children and that her marriage was failing.  But the Judge, who has probably sent many young and middle age males for severe canings at Changi Prison, said that the children were left with severe bruising, despite the fact he sends young men to be thrashed until blood flows from their wounds deliberately, and doesn't see this as wrong or the fact he is party to committing grievous bodily harm......which displays just how perverted the judicial penal system is.

As we said, we postponed further reports a few years ago because nothing was changing what we found out about Singapore Corruption, and on visiting it we were not disappointed to see that they are truly following their aims in this direction......and this is the following short period snapshot...........shows this,

DRUG TAKING LAWYER PLEADS GUILTY IN COURT --- Managing Director and Lawyer, Mark Tan Telk Yu aged 42, pleaded guilty to taking the drug, Meths, and was discovered when he was stopped at the Woodlands Checkpoint in Singapore.  Various drug paraphernalia was found in his car.  It says that he's looking at jail time and a fine.

TWO LAWYERS CHARGED WITH OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE --- Lawyers, Wee Hong Shem and Ong Peng Boon are reported as being party to a customs duty crime.  The report says that in 2019 that they alerted a syndicate of police activity and advised them to clear its premises of goods (cigarettes) which had been brought in without the duty being paid.  Both Lawyers represent individual law firms in Singapore.

LAWYER IN CLIENT ACCOUNT MISUSE --- Lawyer Zaminder Singh Gill was found guilty of misappropriating client money.  It was said that he didn't deposit the money into the firm's account and instead, put it into his own personal bank accounts. He was a legal Associate at the firm Hilborne Law during 2016 to 2019.  He was sentenced to 27 months in jail.

LAWYER SUSPENDED BY JUDGES --- Lee Suet Fern, in a case of 'conflict of interests' was suspended by three judges for a period of 15 months saying that she acted improperly over the preparation and execution of a will.

SINGAPORE POLICE SERGEANT IS JAILED --- a District Court sentenced Police Sergeant, Joel Lim Jian Da, of the Tampines Neighbourhood Police Centre to six months in prison.  He was found guilty of a string of offences including mischief, and misappropriating items from his colleagues, and was also suspended for taking 64 confidential documents home.

FORMER SINGAPORE NSF POLICE OFFICER CHARGED WITH CANE- ABLE OFFENCE ---  Jonathan Chua Wei Cong, is to go on trial for the charge of Criminal Trespass and Insulting a woman's modesty.  It was said in the news that this happened with a female colleague at the police precinct.

SINGAPORE AETOS OFFICER IN GUN ROBBERY --- An Auxillary Police Officer, Mahadi Muhamad Mukhtar, was charged with robbing a money-lending company using a gun he illegally removed to carry out the crime.  It was said that after coming off duty, he took and concealed the gun and visited the money lender.  His trial is set later.  (14/4/2021)

IMMIGRATION/CHECKPOINT OFFICER ON BRIBERY CHARGES --- The ICA Officer, Teo Hwee Peng, a Checkpoints Inspector faces 12 counts of corruption.  The Officer who works for the Singapore Government, received sexual services and cash from two foreign women to help them stay in Singapore illegally. his trial for bribery and corruption is ongoing.

SATS OFFICER TAKES MULTIPLE BRIBES --- a Government Officer in this case, and two other people were involved in a $2.2 million dollar sting...... and there was more but we could see the usual form our investigations were looking like.....and this was like déjà vu.

GOVERNMENT IMMIGRATION & CHECKPOINT OFFICER IN BRIBES CASE --- It was reported that an Immigration and Checkpoint Authority Officer Lucy Teo and her daughter had accepted a bribe of $1,500 Singapore dollars and pled guilty to five counts of computer misuse. 

CORRUPTION CASE INVOLVING PROJECTS WITH GOVERNMENT lands Director a 12 weeks jail term.  Ngiam Chee Chong was said to have paid bribes of $30,000 Singapore dollars in order to gain from his position.  Thirteen other charges were taken into consideration.

FOUR CHARGED WITH CORRUPTION -- Four young men were arrested in connection with a corruption conspiracy involving the sum of S$388,000.  Jeremy Yu Jin Han, Ong Jiajie, Darren Zeng Shao Rong and Isaac Lai Zhi Yao face 7 charges of corruption and bribery.

KEPPEL FELS CORRUPTION CASE IN SINGAPORE --- In September 2020, a scandal looming with the Ship Building firm reached the Public attention as 7 people were linked to the 'Bribery' and 'Corruption' case now going before the court.  It said that Alvin Lim Wee Lun faced 46 counts of obtaining bribes.  Rajavikraman Jayapandian and Goh Ngak Eng were suspected of being involved in $879,900 Singapore dollars bribery.  Ong Tun Chai was identified as fraudulently falsifying papers, and U Keh Choon with Goh Sheng Li Stanley were also alleged to have taken part in the massive fraud scam.  The case continues.

And lastly, we noted that a father who caned a 3 year old repeatedly for several weeks, got nine months jail in a Singapore Court, yet in Britain a man who beat his naked 15 year old boy with an insulated cable more than 20 strokes was jailed for causing actual bodily harm because the boy admitted to being gay, was jailed at the Plymouth Crown Court for Eighteen months, double that of the Singapore case, which tells a story in itself of how the rogue country perceives this kind of punishment.

Request -- We tried to obtain some documents from an ex-prisoner in Singapore who said he had proof of an historic secret war crimes abuse by Singapore Officials and the Government....and it suddenly ceased after he sent us our required proof of one document which had enough for us to continue....we should like him to reconnect with us using our agent in Singapore.

One MEP urging Europe to sort itself out says we should all in the west beware of the 'rise of Asia' ?

BREAKING NEWS:  'ARREST OF LAWYER POLITICALLY MOTIVATED' -- It was reported that Lawyer and Opposition Politician Lim Tean was arrested by Singapore Police at his registered office for 'suspected criminal breach of trust' under the country's penal code, and in addition he was being investigated for an alleged offence of stalking?  His representative, the amazing Mr Ravi told reporters that his client had claimed that this arrest was politically motivated....but didn't say who by!

POLITICALLY MOTIVATED DEFAMATION CASE --- Reveals that the Singapore Government are vigorously pursuing the Chief Editor of The 'Online Citizen' -- Terry Xu (TOC website), accusing him of 'defaming members of the Singapore Cabinet'....the government are pushing a criminal defamation charge after he alleged that 'THERE WAS CORRUPTION OF THE HIGHEST ECHELONS OF THE PEOPLE'S ACTION PARTY LEADERSHIP' -- apparently this is also having involvement from Singapore's PM Lee Hsien Loong who will be testifying in the case.  It is quite evident that this case and charge has been politically elevated to 'Criminal' so that they can jail him and punish him severely, which is a phrase the government are fond of.....no doubt if they could wangle it, they would like to sentence him to a caning too.

SINGAPORE HIT BY LEGAL SCANDAL WITHIN --- It appears that Mr Ravi the Human Rights foremost Lawyer has filed a writ of summons against Attorney General Lucien Wong, Deputy Assistant General Hri Kumar Nair and Senior Counsel Mohamed Faizel, Mohamed Abdul Kadir, and a A.G.C Deputy Chief Prosecutor plus proceedings against the Law Society if it does not do its part to protect lawyers and the independence of the Profession.  He says if it continues to entertain any further complaints or participation in any harassment by the Attorney General.  This comes after he was censored by the government's department who demanded he apologise for criticising them.

DEPUTY PROSECUTORS MAY APPEAR BEFORE DISCIPLINARY TRIBUNAL --- The report, in the same month as the above, says that an application seeking an order for Prosecutors, Tan Wee Hao and Tan Yanying, to be investigated before a disciplinary tribunal was made by Parti Liyani in relation to their conduct at her trial.   (16/10/2020)

'Law Scandal Update'--- Singapore's highest lawmaker department is 'BEING SUED' by Mr Ravi's client, Plaintiff Gobi Avedian 32, who is 'seeking 'unspecified damages' from The Attorney General, Lucien Wong, Deputy Attorney General, Hri Kumar Nair and Deputy Attorney General, Lionel Yee.  Also,  Deputy Chief Prosecutor, Mohamed Faizal, Deputy Chief Prosecutor, Mohamed Abdul Kadir.... and in addition, Prosecutor, Tan Zhongsham, Prosecutor, Nicholas Wuan, Prosecutor, Chin Jincheng and Prosecutor, Ching Kee En. --- 8 lawyers? who represent the Singapore Government.  In a case that suggests a bungle and unusual tactics by the prosecution, Plaintiff Gobi Avedian who was given 15 years jail and 10 strokes of the cane, accuses the eight defendants of having 'abused their powers, and acted in bad faith by improperly performing a legal act which resulted in harm to the plaintiff'        (5/11/2020)

Note: The action was filed with the High Court, and the Attorney General has received the papers.   His response was arrogant as usual!

News scoop --- 'SUICIDE IN CHANGI JAIL SINGAPORE' -- The most interesting part of this report was the Coroner and his defensive statement regarding the Prison -- 'he said there was no basis for foul play?' --- yet no-one had suggested it..... the prisoner, Chua Ser Lien was sentenced to a caning and life imprisonment in 2004... it is stated by the prison that he died from a fall on a stairway and that it was 'suicide' -- the jail claimed he was unbalanced and not of a sound mind....it did admit that he should not have been on his own outside the cell which they tell us enabled him to climb the stairways...yet another report says there was no sign of him being in risk! and that they have now tightened up the situation by ruling that no prisoner should be unaccompanied outside the cell.

CONVICTED LAWYER DIES IN CHANGI JAIL CELL --- It was said that the Lawyer, Zaminder Sing Gill, who was jailed for 27 months in Sept 28th 2020, was found dead in his cell after being there for just one week into his sentence.  It was said that he was convicted of misappropriation of funds.  Even though video CCTV is watching each cell, it is banned to the public and media.  The authorities in Singapore said any evidence is only viewed by the authorities, and would not comment further.   (March 2021)

Also hitting the news is that The Lawyer Mr Ravi who has his own problems with the Judiciary has been charged with criminal defamation, which has conveniently arrived just as he was bringing an action against the Attorney General and others.  Possibly a revenge action!  which is quite common in Singapore law.

MALAYSIA THROWS ITS LOT IN WITH SINGAPORE --- This report says that a lawsuit against Singapore's Minister for Home Affairs and Law Minister, Mr K. Shanmugan filed by Liberty Lawyers in Malaysia in relation to the scandal at Changi Prison and the Prison Service was struck out.....and one clear reason or answer lies in one phrase used by a Singapore Minister a while back -- 'the ties that binds them'

'SCOOP' -- just in, 'REMANDED AUSSIE NATIONAL TELLS ALL ON CHANGI PRISON' --- Nov 3/2020 --- An Australian National, Philip Sceats, who has been on remand for a year in Changi Prison says he was 'set-up' on drug charges.  Philip Sceats first exposed this story to fellow Aussies after arriving home and being freed.  The businessman spent a year in Changi jail, and said that while he was there, he saw some 14 inmates being taken to the gallows.....which at one time he thought would be his fate.  He also revealed the 'infamous canings' within the prison that Singapore wanted to 'cover-up' --- he confirmed that he witnessed a strict regime in which inmates 'were caned across their bare buttocks' if they did something wrong, and that his cell lights were not turned off for most of the time.  The Ministry of Home Affairs of which we have tangled with in the shape of Tan Zhiwei Dylan who snubbed our inquiries, made another one of their 'out of the bottle' statements decrying his claims and said that inmates 'are only caned for serious offences such as aggravated or repeated assault on a prison officer or inmate'  But this isn't true, Amnesty International sent us a list which had 49 rules that carry a caning penalty for prisoners 'under prison discipline' in 2010.  The Ministry made a second claim that the caning punishment is reviewed by an Independent Committee and has to be confirmed by the Commissioner for prisons before the caning is carried out.....again wrong, as the official document provided by Amnesty says that Prison Superintendents can impose corporal punishment and that the Prison Director has to approve it!......One should also be aware that Singapore 'officially denied' that prisoners were caned in 2010.....and it was only when it was leaked in the Press that several prisoners had received twelve strokes of the cane' each for smuggling in drugs, that they did a u-turn and admitted prison discipline was caning.....but would not give any further details or how many were caned each week, simply resorting to saying it was no business of other countries!....and finally, Mr Sceats said he was 'framed' for smuggling cocaine (which was allegedly found in his luggage).......

'LONE PROTESTOR IS ARRESTED' --Yan Jun 45, was charged and put on trial in Singapore for what the Singapore authorities said was taking part in a public assembly without a permit?  It was said that he held placards outside the US Embassy at 5pm saying 'that the US spied on him and that Changi Prison is a slave camp! --- he also demanded that PM Lee should stand down.  He was grabbed by several police officers and later appeared before the District Court.  He refused to accept the court and answered no questions and turned his back on the judge, who in turn had him 'forcibly' turned around and handcuffed to the front of the dock.  He said his protest was against Singapore, and he wanted to file a complaint against the judge, but this request was 'ignored' -- he was placed on remand awaiting trial in November 2020 and at the time of this report Jan' 20th 2021, he still remains in jail....he's been charged with unlawful assembly which believe it or not, carries a sentence in this country of 3 years and up to 24 strokes of the cane!

'FORMER SENIOR PUBLIC SERVANT gets 6 weeks in prison for 6 counts of female molestation.  The 'un-named' 67 year old man who worked in the Education Sector of Government  who's trial was conducted in secrecy with 'a gagging order' pleaded guilty to the charges.

SINGAPORE COPS CAN ENTER HOMES WITHOUT WARRANT -- In a new turn of 'law override and adjustment' the government are authorising Enforcement Officers to enter people's homes 'without warrants' to check if people are complying with Covid-19 rules and measures.     (3/8/2021)

'CORRUPTVILLE SINGAPORE' a brief look at current corruption within the 'perfect state' and fixed crime figures:

National Housing Board Investigation Officer is jailed over 'Bribery and Corruption' -- Kalayarasan Karuppaya, an officer hired to catch lawbreakers was said to have breached the Official Secrets Act when he tipped off a friend in order to help him negotiate around the rules.  He pleaded guilty and was jailed for 25 days.   (30/8/2021)

Buildings Construction Authority Inspector, Tan Ming Lie, was charged on two counts of corruption in that he allowed himself to be used after accepting a bribe.    (30/8/2021)

National Water Agency (PUB) Officer, Jamaludin Mohamed, was charged on two accounts, one being falsifying invoices and accepting bribes.    (30/8/2021)

Biggest Fraud in Singapore History -- In what is described as one of the largest corruption cases currently rocking the Singapore business community and government, Businessman, Ng Yu Zhi, is on trial for cheating investors.  It is said that apart from the charges he is already facing, there has been 20 new counts added, which takes the current total of charges to 51 so far.  It says some of these include forgery in 'The Scheme' which involved nickel trading.  The case is still taking up the court's time.    (30/8/2021)

Officer for the Building and Construction Authority was jailed for Corruption.  The Officer, Tan Ming Lie, pleaded guilty to corruption when he appeared before the District Court,  He was jailed for 8 weeks and ordered to pay 600 Singapore dollars in penalties.   (6/10/2021)

NB there are many other cases in their courts and crime reports involving bribes and fraud etc not mentioned.

PS: Singapore is about the size of The Isle of Man, and if all of what we listed on this republic happened there, there would be a government change and a scandal that would not be tolerated or allowed to continue!

THE CONUNDRUM THAT BAFFLES and shows distinct contradictions in law and the Singapore Government which needs looking at closely?

They say in their public statements that 'Caning is not part of the punishment' only the jailing...Yet in contrast to this, a 53 yr old man was found guilty of 3 counts of molestation, and sentenced to 2 yrs and 8 months jail by Judge Eddy Thom (22/3/2021), and because of the accused' is over 50 he cannot be caned....Judge Thom ordered him to an 'additional 18 weeks in jail 'in lieu' of a caning?   which certainly looks like 2 sentences for one crime proving that the caning is another part of the sentence...because it shows that the caning has a value of 18 weeks, not accounted for in the main deliberation.

We now go to THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF LAW -- The court dismissed 22 actions brought by death row prisoners in regard to their personal data, and they were suing The Attorney General of Singapore in this civil suit.  The Law turned down all these writ procedures by introducing the law and actions by prisoners are 'not expressly provided for' and said 'disclosures against the government is limited in the Proceedings Act'...meaning that they can at will delete, alter or change the law on rights of the person at will, and are not held accountable in any way...similar to a dictators regime.

Update: PRISONERS SUE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL --- It was reported that around 13 death row prisoners have filed a case against the Prison Authorities, accusing the Attorney General of acting 'unlawfully' in respect of private letters.  They are seeking damages it is said, but the amount has not been disclosed.  (July 2021)

Newsflash -- Two prisoners in fight, one has ear bitten and unrepairable.  The aggressor is given an extra 10 months on current sentence.  However they say nothing about compensation for victim for whom they have a duty of care.  He would be well advised to get a lawyer and sue the Prison Authorities or State for a considerable payout.  (Aug 2021)

A Lawyer, Ms Gloria James told the court her client Muhammmad Alif Ab Rahim 'was assaulted while he was in prison', the judge dismissed this saying it had no bearing in her client's case....Her client has done several stints in Changi Prison, and he was sentenced to 24 strokes of the cane for his new crime.....but more importantly, the law here shows no concern for assaults in Prison, and it begs the question 'how many assaults go on (apart from the GBH canings) in prison and are withheld by the Singapore Government...yet they boast having CCTV continually monitoring cells?  but make no mention of assaults on prisoners (and assaults on guards and prison staff are dealt with in-house and 12 of the cane)....so what else is this regime hiding?

'KIDNAPPED AND ABDUCTED' says Brit as he stands trial in Singapore Court.  Singapore Justice was challenged as British subject Ben Glynn faces three charges after initial charge of not wearing a mask during Covid-19 restrictions.  It says that the court have remanded the Brit and added to other charges; Public Nuisance and Harassment.  Mr Glynn told the court 'I am disgusted with how the Singapore Justice System has treated me' and told the Judge 'How can you say Singapore is a safe country?' and also said that the police hunted him down like a pack of wild animals...this isn't justice, it is disgusting' ...this raised a clap from a woman in the gallery...the Judge wasn't happy.    (August 2021)

PS it says that Mr Glynn could be jailed up to a year and fined....and even more if all three charges are accepted!

'TORTURED AND ASSAULTED' said Michael Fay in this 'discovered item' on the Internet.  The US youth of 18, who was given 6 strokes, reduced to 4 on intervention from the Americans, now 19, said that even though he was flogged for vandalism by a caning over the adult frame bare bottomed, said guards 'smacked him in the face as he was arrested, and was actually pulled out of a chair by his hair, and the cop hit him on the head with his knuckles' which wasn't accepted when he complained,  Michael Fay was sentenced to 6 of the cane and four months in jail for spray painting cars,

'INDIA TELLS SINGAPORE CANE OUR NATIONALS AT YOUR PERIL' we discovered this gem of an item from 1989, In which the Government in New Delhi warned Singapore not to cane nine Indian Nationals for visa violations, saying that a 'grave misunderstanding' will arise between the two countries if the sentences are carried out in Changi Prison'

Need some info about 'hidden war crimes' and Singapore.....somebody must have some stuff they hid.

As per usual, no-one has come forward, but we have come across a book on Singapore - A STUDY IN DECEPTION.....plus 'The Singapore Traitor.

We would normally finish here, but recent news about the Caning of Ming has changed that...and we therefore feel it is necessary to reveal the full story on Singapore's canings, jail, and government, some of which you will not like to see (especially the photos we kept on file, and they will be revealed for the first time, and you will be shocked).....and hopefully this time you will get the message and stop ignoring their State Brutality!

'Singapore's perverted love affair with caning'......

THIS HAS BEEN A SCANDAL FOR A LONG TIME AND IT'S BEGINNINGS CAN BE FOUND WITH THE BRITISH IN TIME GONE PAST AS WE SEE THAT CANING WAS ON THEIR PENAL CODES SINCE 1871 'applying bare bottom canings' to Offenders...AND THAT STILL GOES ON IN 2020 showing that this barbaric old method has gone on for 139 years!  and today there are more canings than ever before going way over a 100 offences, with new ones added every year, making it mandatory to cane and incarcerate the offender...many countries have tried to show Singapore that it's not only outdated, but contrary to Human Rights, but they ignore everyone and stick to their canes like a love affair that borders on perversion.  Singapore is also one of those rare countries that uphold corporal punishment for children from a young age, boys only, and parents are advised to use the cane rather than the hand.  Boys of 7 are caned, and boys of 12 and up to 18 in Secondary schools also receive 3 strokes in a special school office, and it says 150 schools cane boys for misconduct.  Some of those boys from 14 are caned officially and judicially after court hearings dealing with offences the school cannot deal with, and they are caned up to 10 strokes by caning officers at the Remand Centre.  There is also a practice of school coach tours to Changi Prison for the boys to see the A-frame and canes used on prisoners, which Singapore says is 'a warning measure' of what they can get if they indulge in misbehaviour....and no other country does this, nor would they, it's perverse and disgusting to say the least.  What is really happening here is children are being brought up to feel and accept that the act of canings for misbehaviour is 'normal'...and that should not be condoned in modern society.  We show you  a school party at Changi Prison being urged to look at the cane as part of their life....this photo is for real folks, and we will show you more as we go through this expose on Singapore and its caning. It's a sad fact that the British 'sicko' flog 'em, and hang 'em  brigade brought this perverted disease to the Singaporeans, and they have learned to love it and embrace it.  The photo shows the large adult A-frame in the background which boys of 18, and occasionally 17/16 go over it bare bottomed. In the foreground is the junior frame with the Prison Official showing a large group of Secondary schoolboys the actual cane they may encounter in Changi Prison.

CHANGI PRISON: we have drawn from several sources to get the real picture; unlike the one that the Prison Service will have you believe.  This jail is the biggest and the most notorious, in that most of the publicised bare bottom canings have attracted world-wide attention and little else.  The prison houses thousands of prisoners and is made up of several blocks that converge at the centre where the hub controls the facility and has the CANING ROOM and SCAFFOLD... both set away from other prisoners but accessible from the hub and blocks by means of corridors that allows prisoners to be taken to either depending on the sentence of the court.  Unlike younger offenders, the eighteen year old and above males (50 being the top age) are thrashed with an half inch thick cane as seen on the right which is approximately 4 foot long and very strong according to retired staff who have seen the cane stocks held at the prison stores.  They fully soaked before use and this adds weight and to a degree the cane is flexible making its swing easier for the caning officers of which there are usually four in the Caning Room.  And as we were told by Ming Yuen on a 24 stroke caning, each officer administers six strokes at 'full strength' (and it is also said that each officer gets a bonus of 50 cents a stroke they apply during the caning sessions, which also applies to the secretive prison 'discipline canings' that the Prison does not talk about of which there are more than a few taking place almost daily.  These do not require a 'court ruling' or witnesses, the Boss merely sets up a mini-hearing and decides if the prisoner is to be caned for misbehaviour, which can result in 12 strokes carried out like the court judicial caning orders.  Caning is a big part of Singapore's punishment and rehabilitation process, because they wish offenders to think hard and long about their 'naughtiness in society' and the pain is said to help that happen according to the Minister of Home Affairs.  What this punishment does is not really understood by the schoolboys who are invited to see their fate, nor by many others, so we thought that we ought to show you via a photo of the results of a 10 stroke caning, which is fourteen less than what Ming Yuen received, and you will probably get some idea of what 24 strokes will do to the human buttocks when the caning is over.  The damage is quite repulsive as you can see and the wounds are very visible and deep, and as you can see, after the caning is over and the prisoner is given a tube of antiseptic gel, he is also given 'painkiller tablets' and is returned to his cell where he lays on his straw mat on the cell floor for the next fifteen days of isolation where he can contemplate his punishment and get on the road of recovery to being a better person (this is some of the official blurb by the Singapore government).

On entry to the Prison after being despatched from the District Court, the prisoner is processed and all his possessions are taken, including watches, photographs, money and phone etc.  Court papers will already have a reference to caning if the sentence has a mandatory caning instruction. They will be passed to the office of the execution of justice...in other words corporal punishment in the administration block where it will be logged as 'pending' or 'appeal' until they have the all clear to cane the prisoner.  In some documents it refers to incoming prisoners having their heads shaved and a shower on entry at which time their ordinary clothes are gone and they are given shorts, a white shirt and flip-flop sandals, colour of shorts etc are changeable within the blocks, but photo evidence shows the usual being dark brown or blue.  In 'reception' as it is called, they are given a large plastic box in which they put a plastic drinking mug with lid, a plastic spoon, toothbrush, toothpaste, a toilet roll, one small towel, one grey blanket and a straw bamboo mat (as seen above' for sleeping on....there are no beds or mattresses.  The Prison Service say that first and foremost, prison must remain 'Spartan' and devoid of any extras that would serve to interfere with the object of 'self assessment and remorse' -- Prisoners sentenced to 2 years and more are put into their own 'small cells' with one open toilet.  Those that have been sentenced to less than two years are put into 'large cells' accommodating 4 to 18 people, and that measures 11 metres by 2 metres and that has an open toilet....and all cells are monitored by CCTV.  A report we saw says the cells are poorly ventilated (and the average heat is 30c) -- there are small holes in the wall to let the air in and distinguish night from day it is said.  Lighting is strictly controlled by Prison staff, and inmates must take a shower in front of all the others in the large cells.  Water is strictly controlled and no drinking water is provided or allowed outside meal times.  All prisoners are given an 'identity' number tag and taken to the allotted cell by a prison guard, and as seen in the photo he would be handcuffed when taken to the Caning Room.  Spartan also means that personal effects, radio or television, pens, paper and books are banned, and are considered as a distraction to the punishment which they say must 'be absorbed' by the offender each and every day.  It is known that prisoners spend 22 hours a day in a cell 'unless they are able to secure a job' -- which as one former prisoner told us is only in the 'laundry' and many apply to do it just to get away from their cells...and he also said it was the only job...there are no workshops which the government mention, he said that was propaganda for those in the western world.  Prisoners do not get paid for working, they receive 'credits' which would not be explained by the Prison Service.  Any money prisoners have was removed when they arrived, it is up to the family and relatives to supply this. Visiting permits are only granted to the immediate family who are named, and their lawyer.... friends are not granted entry because the Prison Service considers them an 'undue influence' which may have been part of the reason they are in prison.  Newspapers are heavily censored with articles cut out before a prisoner can have access to read in a one hour period which allows them to play cards or games. It mentions that a TV may be watched, but yet again, it is also censored.  Another one hour period is also dedicated to exercise, and a rooftop with nets is spoken of so that a ball game may be played, and this is organised by the Prison guards. There are no gymnasiums or recreation facilities such as swimming, boxing or body workouts mainly for two reasons.  One being that they have no extra buildings, and to remain Spartan, they do not wish prisoners to enjoy a soft life like the westerners who they consider pamper their inmates instead of punishing them.  Breakfast for prisoners is not what you might imagine, they serve up 4 pieces of bread with butter and jam....and coffee or tea.  Lunch is rice and bread.  The evening meal is a piece of chicken with bread or rice.  There are no canteens for prisoners (even though the authorities claim and pretend it), canteen facilities are for the staff only.  The meals are served through a hatch at the bottom of the cell door, which can be seen in the photo.....The only thing a prisoner can look forward to is the weekend when they are provided with rice and curried chicken. 

'DISCIPLINE FOR PRISONERS' --- Even though we have highlighted the judicial and court orders that order a prisoner to be caned, inside the prison caning is a common sanction for 'indiscipline and misconduct' and this is rarely mentioned outside the prison walls.  In fact, the government won't talk about it or give any figures to how many prisoners are caned in a week.  Inmates who do not follow 'the many rules' are either given a caning or a period of solitary confinement...the only two punishments.  There are no warnings issued and if he commits a minor offence twice, it is considered as 'an aggravated' offence which carries the penalty of corporal punishment with a caning of up to 12 strokes, given in the same way as the judicial caning.  A former prison warden said 'they are given at full force' and these canings are not recorded with the court.  The Prison has the right to carry out 'a mini-court hearing.  The prisoner has no representation and a guard will testify against him, and if the Prison Superintendent does not accept the prisoner's defence, he can order a caning of twelve strokes.  This is then put before the Prison's Director who will sanction the judicial caning.  There are many rules such as 'disobedience' 'non compliance' 'destruction of property' 'lying to an officer' 'assault on a prisoner or guard' 'making false allegations' 'abusive language' 'removing a prison tag and number' 'indecent behaviour to ones-self or another' 'refusing to undergo a medical examination' 'refusing to eat the meals that are provided' 'quarrelling with another prisoner' 'fighting' 'assisting a rule breaker' 'refusing to march in file' 'refusing to wear prison clothes' 'damage to a cell' and 'attempting to escape'.....49 rules which all carry a caning.  It was revealed by Amnesty that around 123 canings took place each week among the three main prisons, and in respect of prison discipline in 2007, that year alone, the records showed that there had been 6,404 canings which included some of the official court canings that were ordered.  But this was contested by a retired guard at the Changi Jail  who said that at his prison alone they were caning up to 120 prisoners in a week and that official internal paperwork confirmed it.  The Singapore government declined to confirm it and told reporters that 'it was an internal matter of one nation not accountable to another'.

History wise, Caning was introduced to Singapore by the British who ran the colony from 1819 to 1959.  They installed the 'A Frame' and selected a half inch cane for flogging prisoners and decided it should be four foot long so that it could be swung wide and high when in use.  On its independency, Singapore kept the system and has continually increased its usage in law.  The British also built the Changi Prison which is star like in shape having a central hub for administration and blocks of cells going out from it to the huge walls and observation tower that is so distinct from the other smaller prisons which we shall be mentioning.  The photo on the left shows this and the huge long wall  surrounding the prison.  The Singapore Government has always insisted that 'caning' is in practice, 'always ordered in addition to a jail sentence, and 'never' as a punishment by itself --- but this is not entirely truthful or exact, because 'internal prison canings of which there are many, is the sentence and the Prison Director can approve a caning for a discipline offence using the Prisons Act which incorporates corporal punishment, but no extra jail time as that must be ordered by a court....and apart from this it was once said by the PM that this was to show an offender that when they hurt someone in their crime, they should feel hurt themselves by way of a caning, but some of those listed offences in the penal codes 325 to 332 like overstaying, trespass, entering Singapore without a certificate and unlawful assembly have no hurting ingredient present...yet they carry a mandatory caning, and the latter charge carries a penalty of 24 strokes.  Inconsistencies abound as one looks closely into this so-called justice system along with the contradictions which become very obvious when one examines the official claims of punishment, confinement and rehabilitation.  Having what we already know about the punishment stage and confinement we move onto the claims of a rehabilitation process. One such rehabilitation deals with drug offenders at the Centres (and they also cane the prisoners over frames, and it is fairly regular), they boast about rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners under (SPS) framework, throwing in the mention of a 'prison school' which works on the sole intention of 'preventative education' -- not general education as you may think or school as you know it.  The authorities say that around 9,000 offenders complete their sentences and return to the community, but fail to mention that 1 in 4 prisoners re-offend and end up back in prison, and are caned again.  The 'school' and 'work initiatives' (which require a close look at) and time spent in detention is said to make them ready to rejoin society, but yet again, this is not true, it is propaganda to shield off questions from other nations concerned with what they hear.  The Prison 'blurb' says prisoners can learn a trade or skill and even resume 'formal education'....accompanying this with statements like 'serving time should never be a waste of time'....which for the most of it is! because evidence obtained reveals that the only prison work available is in the laundry as we already pointed out earlier.   Any rehabilitation is set out towards the end of a prisoner's sentence, called 'pre-release', and only 16% of inmates find a job on leaving the prison.  Most inmates spend a huge time in their cell under the system of 'The Deterrence Stage' otherwise known as the treatment, when they must experience incarceration and reflect on their wrongdoing for hours on end with little else to take their mind off it.  This is also seen as part of the education programme provided to prisoners.  In many cases with Singapore, the prison sentences are long and when it comes to their release back into society...there is no Social Security' in Singapore, no Welfare payments, prisoners who have no means to support themselves must either rely on their relatives or face being put onto a 'workfare training scheme' for the unemployed -- which often turns out to be a low wage job such as waiting tables and washing up in restaurants, or even cleaning the streets, with little chance of promotion or higher wages, hence the fact that some of them end up back in prison to do another stretch and suffer yet another judicial caning.

95% of ordered canings are implemented in full; much to the delight of the authorities, by prison staff who are encouraged to make sure the prisoner is caned.  Inmates who collapse or blackout while undergoing the thrashing, are quickly revived by the doctor or his assistants who must apply antiseptic gel to the wounds and have the prisoner ready to take more strokes of the cane and achieve the full sentence so that the punishment will not be stopped for medical reasons.  If this should happen (rare) it is considered as a sort of failure and leads to unwanted paperwork that must be sent back to the court so that the missing strokes can be converted to more prison time. In the 5% there is the ones that failed to be medically fit....and that becomes a waiting game.  One such Prison Director at Changi Prison, Quek Shi Lei was a great fan and supporter of the cane who was pleased to witness prisoners being caned and attended several of them loved to see them scream, cry out, struggle and suffer extreme humiliation which he hoped would last them throughout their lives, so much so would tell the doctor at the scene that inmates would pretend to faint in order to stop the caning and fool the Prison medical staff. He ordered medical staff to revive them by any means so that as he said ' they receive a bloody beating that would leave them with scars they could reflect on and keep for the rest of their lives'  Youngsters would be dealt with at another prison -- the Queenstown Remand Centre (now no more) and 16yr old US boy Michael Fay was caned there after he was convicted of vandalism by the District Court as seen on the photo on the left.  He was sentenced to six strokes of the cane, which was reduced to 4 after US intervention and he faced going over the 'A frame' at that prison, bare bottomed...which wasn't unusual, but not unique as research as shown.  Boys convicted who are 16 and 17 are caned over the A frame much like the Changi judicial caning using the half inch thick cane.  Boys under sixteen are caned to a set of different regulations that once the District Court has sentenced them to be caned, the decision to enforce the caning must be decided by The High Court, and if the Judge agrees with the sentence an order is then made for the caning to take place.  We did find contradictions at this stage when the rules referred to boys of 17 and 18 can only receive a maximum of ten strokes with a lighter cane, yet 18yr olds going to Changi can get 24 strokes bare bottomed, and have done with the regular half inch cane, and furthermore, it also states that young boys from 14yrs must remain clothed and have the cane applied across their trousers, and administered by a trained caning officer of which there are usually four at every prison, remand centre and drugs rehabilitation unit. A photo of the juvenile caning can be seen  below.  The youngsters in the main go over a smaller frame designed for them which isn't as fearsome as the 'A Frame' and can be seen here on the right with a cane propped up against it. The rules say that a doctor is present in the 'caning room' and that every boy is tested as medically fit before the caning goes ahead. It also notes that after the caning the boy is again examined in a private room before being taken to the Centre compound where he will serve a sentence of incarceration and behaviour training.  There is no details saying what happens or acknowledgement of a parent's role, they seem to be left out of this which appears strange in a situation that involves punishment and detention. It was leaked that Penal Code changes which have several amendments in regard to stiffer sentences such as more caning inclusions, higher fines and new offences to be added to the 360 offences are reviewed by the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Attorney General's Chambers, the ministry of law, the law society and Jo public? have conspired to continue the barbaric system, and the Singapore Parliament has approved all changes and amendments without much of a challenge or even condemnation.

The scourge on Human Rights, values and non-compliance is very evident with Singapore.  The 1998 Article 9 a, b, and c, matter very little to this pariah despite the fact they signed up to it.  The protections for humans cannot be taken away from them in any circumstances, even during war or emergency (Article 15) but yet again this rogue Republic refuse to stop caning and say they are not swayed by International Law in this practice and do not see it as torture or degrading so long as the prisoners suffer the maximum hurt.  Caning has been going on a long time and Singapore are reluctant to give out any information about the number, and the only statistics we have is that in 1987 - 602 males were caned -- In 1988 it was 616, and in 1992 it was 1,422, in 1993 it jumped to 3,244 males, and in 2006 it was 5,984 males caned, and in 2007 it was 6,404 and that it continued to increase year by year and is still doing it now, but the figures are cloaked in secrecy, and even Amnesty have a problem getting information.  And the figures are not likely to include the prison canings for indiscipline.  The only other source we know of is The US State Department Human Rights Reports which are said to be issued annually.

PS: There are no clocks around the Changi Prison, nor the others, they say this would be a distraction and act counter to the purpose of the Prison ethics because inmates must concentrate on becoming good citizens and time is not needed to measure this or worry the prisoners.

Documents tell us that by 2010, there were over 100 offences that carried a mandatory caning and others that were 'and' because existing offences were being amended by The Penal Reform Committee so that they increased the number of strokes that could be lawfully given. In  one court sitting involving the case of 160 illegal immigrants, the Chief Magistrate gave out around a total of 500 strokes of the cane, with each immigrant being given 3 of the cane at the Queenstown Remand Centre, which took four specially trained Caning Officers over ten hours to administer before they spent 3 months in prison.  Other Canings are administered at The Admiralty West Prison in Sembawang which you can see in the photo here shown-- and of course Queenstown which deals with juveniles from 13 to 18 specifically (but they have caned younger ones on occasions where it was sanctioned). Public announcements of caning cases are limited, and the government's Straits Times prints a limited number as directed by the authorities and some do not appear at all because they say that it might offend the other nations in the world.  We are informed that some district news outlets do run news on cases heard in the district courts, but their circulation is well below that of the Straits Times.  In the following paragraph we will be sidestepping the caning for a brief period so that he will and can give you a better picture of this treatment uncensored, and not by a doctor who's statement they approved.

A Doctor (who wished to remain anonymous for good reason) was formally requested to act for the Prison Service to attend judicial canings declined by saying he could not assist or take part in the infliction of bodily harm by another person or the State on a prisoner.  He said on no account did medical ethics allow him to do this as it went against his duties to heal people and not to assist a party inflicting harm and hurt on another human being.  He was of course removed from the list, and others took his place saying they were there to see that the authorities 'behaved properly and humanely' and safeguard the prisoner from serious medical damage.  The Doctor who declined said that the cane would -- because of its 'ferocious manner' cause instant bruising and welts that would likely break open on repeated hits, and the increased number of strokes would likely cause nausea and temporary blackouts as the buttocks became numb and ultra painful which would in time lead to serious damage of the victim's skin, as it would be able to cope with the onslaught for very long. He also said it could cause nerve damage and muscular spasms later. Ming Yuen 31, was one of the latest cases of the 24 stroke caning, and he said that the Prison doctors and assistants sprayed Iodine over prisoners beaten bottoms after the caning and handed out painkiller tablets and a tube of antiseptic gel...and was infuriated when one doctor asked 'what pain do you have?' having witnessed the brutality taking place in the official Prison Caning Room.

Callous Officials are not uncommon within the Prison Service or the Government, and the Home Affairs Office have been quite dismissive about caning, one such member being Tan Zhiwei Dylan who we tried to engage with but ignored us completely after having commented on the Ming Yuen case.  Ming's case was yet one more needless caning, but certain factors did harm his position in that after committing his first offence, he committed another while on appeal...and then used delay processes until time ran out.   His caning was awful and disgusting and he was right to resent it, as are the ones that are going on right now in Singapore.  Not all offenders are as knowledgeable and public schooled as Ming who knew how to work the law there.
