Wikipedia definition http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habeas_corpus
A writ of habeas corpus is a summons with the force of a court order, addressed to the custodian (a prison official for example) demanding that a prisoner be taken before the court, and that the custodian present proof of authority, allowing the court to determine if the custodian has lawful authority to detain the person. If the custodian does not have authority to detain the prisoner, then he must be released from custody.
As many of you may have realised in the wider public interest Team Norman has applied for a Writ of Habeas Corpus on behalf of Norman Scarth, being that he has been held incommunicado and that his fundamental Human Rights are being denied to him, this has met the threshold to apply for such a Writ.
We have named the Prison Governor as the defendant in this matter and are currently awaiting the decision of the Royal Courts of Justice for the release of Norman Scarth.
Having submitted one application to bring the man, Norman Scarth to Court along with his Jailer, the application was rejected on certain grounds that have been very kindly put in writing for us by the Court staff.
We then, after working tirelessly on 24 hour shifts drafted up a new application, had it hand delivered overnight from Leeds to London and was serviced on the Court Friday 12 August 2011 along with the qualifying criteria and as such we have been issued a claim number for Norman Scarth and await the decision of the Honourable Court.
It is our full belief that unless the decision of the Court is to release Norman Scarth on Monday 15 August 2011, then there must not be any rule of Law in existence within the United Kingdom corporation as to rule by picking and choosing is no rule of Law.
