2011 Press Release


by justicefornormanscarth


UPDATE :A Writ of Habeus Corpus application was served correctly upon the Royal Courts of Justice, 9.08.11 and was denied, reasons were given in writing and a re-submission has taken place by hand delivery service to the Royal Courts of Justice from Leeds on 12.08.11, meanwhile Norman is being delayed the right to justice which contravenes article 40 of the Magna Carta as currently written in UK Legislation. A PEACEFUL, STATIC GATHERING HAS TAKEN PLACE 13.08.11 OUTSIDE HMP LEEDS WITH A LARGE TURN OUT IN THE PEACEFUL NAME OF ALL OUR HUMAN RIGHTS AND OUR FRIEND AND HERO MR NORMAN SCARTH


Mr Norman Scarth is an 85-year-old decorated war veteran who has recently been incarcerated and put in jail for 6 months for using a recording device in a Court, in his attempt to uncover corruption during a court trial in Bradford.

Mr Scarth served aboard the HMS Matchless destroyer during the WW2 and most notably fought against the German Battleship Sharnhorst at the battle of the North Cape.

Many people are worried for the health of this elderly war veteran, who has not been afforded Legal representation of his choosing, with visitor restrictions or access to his medication for muscle cramps, which has been causing him intense pain.

The case is particularly concerning, because Mr Scarth committed an apparent offence, was detained, had a hearing, was sentenced and imprisoned all in the same day.

This is highly irregular practice and did not allow for Mr Scarth to be Lawfully sentenced. There was no Lawful due process.

There is also outrage that he is being held in Armley prison, a category B institution that generally holds prisoners for much more serious offence.

Supporters are massively concerned about the health and safety of an 85-year-old man in this kind of environment.

After being denied a ‘Hearing Loop’ by the Court staff, Mr Scarth decided to record a trial, the judge observed this and requested that he did not. Mr Scarth declined and an argument ensued, resulting in Mr Scarth’s detainment.

What is ironic, is that Mr Scarth has been a campaigner against injustice for many years.

In 1998 Mr Scarth was single handedly responsible for an important European Court of Human Rights case (Scarth v UK) against the British judicial system. This case involved removing the restrictions in Legislation of hearing matters in private that might violate a Person’s Right to a fair trial.

Chris Jarvis, who is a close friend of Mr Scarth, has said:

We are all very shaken about the case and concerned about Normans safety and well being. We are especially appalled at the speed of the imprisonment, which did not allow for any form of defence to be built up for Norman. Also, he is currently being refused legal representation, visitor rights, and we are worried that he is not getting his medication. We’re also worried about his housing situation- if he survives his prison sentence for the full 6 months, he may not have a home to return to. For all this to happen to an 86 year old man, who has given so much to this country, both in the military and in his human rights campaigns, just for using a camera in court seems massively unjust. This is a man who is entitled to the everyday rights that we the public take for granted, and in particular this man is being effective tortured by the removal of his medication contrary to Article 3 of the human rights act that prohibits torture as written in UK Legislation”

    Mr Justice Jonathan Rose unlawfully and maliciously jailed Norman Scarth.
    When he was a barrister, Rose wrote a book about Stefan Kiszko five years after Kiszko was released and deceased. It was a tissue of lies written to protect the people who framed Kiszko and Dick Holland the cop who performed the stitch up and did the deal with Peter Sutcliffe for all the Ripper’s murders and to point the finger of suspicion at somebody else.

    Jonathan Rose should be investigated himself for writing those lies to protect corrupt officials in the judiciary but as we can see he has been rewarded by being made a judge himself.

    Meanwhile the Real Yorkshire Ripper, Billy Tracey is a free man living in London for the past twenty five years and without doubt he will have a litany of serious crimes under his belt and many victims living in trauma.
    People like Rose dont worry about that. He can dish out judgments like this http://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/local/localbrad/9184190.Dangerous_driver_is_spared_jail_term/
    and lock up men like Norman Scarth who dare to expose corruption in the courts.

    The bizarre aspect of this case was that after Stefan Kiszko was exonerated they stitched up another innocent man for the Molseed murder to close the case forever. They needed a fall guy, somebody from the area with form who would tick some of the boxes.
    Ronald Castree was targetted because he had committed an indiscretion with a young girl in the same town about a year later than that murder. His crime was so bad that he was only fined by the magistrate and the girl couldnt remember what happened thirty years later but it was enough to damn him in the eyes of a jury.

    Not knowing of Rose’s interest in writing a book about the Molseed murder in which he made a case against another man, Castree was defended by Jonathan Rose, then a QC, in the initial phase of his arraignment. Rose and Judge Stephen Gullick were working together to stitch him up from the start.

    this webpage of the T and A identifies rogue judge, Jonathan Rose.

    Coincidentally Norman Scarth was in Gullick’s court and asked him to speak up as he couldnt hear him speaking.

    Please circulate this evidence to others to expose Judge Jonathan Rose for his serious crime in covering up corruption in the Kiszko case by writing the book titled INNOCENTS and going on to help frame another innocent man, Ronald Castree, for that murder, in order to protect the bent cop Dick Holland and his legal friends. Now again he has abused his position as a judge to lock up a very brave old man who dared to question his authority.
