U.K. Court Perverts Justice in Dr. Pelling's Trial

For those following the Dr. Pelling trial:

----------
From: "Dr Michael Pelling" <>
Date: Sun, 13 Feb 2005 13:53:28 -0000
To: "Fathers 4 Justice"
Subject: [fathers4justice] AG v.PELLING

SUMMARY (not verbatim) DIVISIONAL COURT 9/2/05

Lord Justice Laws: "We understand you wish to apply for leave to cross-examine the Attorney-General's witnesses".

Dr Pelling: "I do not accept that I need leave. This is a criminal trial and I claim the right at Common Law to cross-examine my accusers. Nevertheless I now formally request leave to cross-examine".

Lord Justice Laws: "What questions do you want to put to the Attorney-General's witnesses?"

Dr Pelling: "I decline to disclose in advance my lines of cross-examination and give the Attorney-General an advantage".

Lord Justice Laws: "Why do you want to cross-examine the Attorney-General's witnesses?"

Dr Pelling: "I believe I shall be able to elicit facts which will help my defence".

Court's Decision: "We can't see any evidence that the witnesses could give which would be of use to you. So we decline to allow cross-examination".

Dr Pelling: "In that case I shall not be continuing further with this case (etc)".

War on secrecy (II) provides greater depth of coverage of the hearing


NOTE: Although Dr Pelling relied on the Common Law, the ECHR [English Charter of Human Rights] which the Court was under a duty to apply, says:

ART.6(3). "Everyone charged with a criminal offence has the following minimum rights:

...(d) to examine or have examined witnesses against him...".

The Human Rights Act 1998 s.6(1) says:

6(1). It is unlawful for a public authority to act in a way which is incompatible with a Convention right.

6(3). In this section "public authority" includes

(a) a court or tribunal, ... .

The circumstances that caused Dr. Pelling to be brought to trial involved him trying to help a boy that was being abused by U.K. justice Singer:

One man's fight for justice and against secrecy in the courts

Judge uses his power to retaliate for resistance to his abuses
