I have just recieved the following email from my good friend and fellow human rights/anti corruption/anti paedophile campaigner and multi medalled war hero Norman Scarth.

David Bentley is the same judge who threw out the Operation Ore case, and now the paedophiles are sniggering up their sleeves at having got away with what they did to much that they have even written a book called THE APPALLING VISTA which outlines how they got away with it. Nigel Oldfield gets a good mention in that book, he is the horrible creep who went on Newsnight to try to blag the world that being a paedophile is all perfectly acceptable.

I feel sick reading this. This brave old man is still fighting for justice at a time when most people his age have put their feet up by the fireside, feeling that they have done their bit.

I am a victim of child abuse, and I have PTSD, which I can never be healed from while the persecution continues. I get sent every 6 months by DHSS to near where I was abused as a child, and have been kept deliberatly isolated for all the other Pindown home victims in Stafford, persecuted over a 7 year period in the secret family courts which involved keeping me against my will for 2 hours crying and screaming to be allowed to go home and not be forced to sign documents against my will, threatened with jail and the smash up of my family by gangsters from the secret family courts, put onto a website for criminals and other nasty things have been done to me, I presume, in the hope that I will get so depressed I might commit suicide, something which I steadfastly refuse to do. And likewise, so does my good friend Norman!

"The 'News Media' are screaming blue murder at not being allowed to publish titillating stories of adulterous sex. Please forgive me taking the opportunity to ask why did they not make equal outcry at their banning from my grotesque Kangaroo Court 'trial' in Sheffield Crown Court in April 2001? They would have seen that the sadistic Judge David Ronald Bentley also banned my witnesses, my evidence, & three times had me literally dragged & thrown back down the cells when I dared to complain of his gross misconduct. They would have seen him feed monstrous lies to the (specially selected) jury to get the guilty verdict he wanted. They would have seen him ban any mention of the potentially lethal terror attack on me by a mob-handed gang of West Yorkshire Police on 8th August 1999 - eleven months BEFORE my supposed 'crime'! Then, where others would have been given Probation, Community Service, Suspended Sentence or similar, they would have seen him impose a sentence on me (a 75 yr old World War II veteran, for a first 'offence') of TEN YEARS - the intention that I would die in prison. Well, in spite of all the efforts of sadistic screws & shrinks, I didn't die, & retained my sanity (perhaps you should be the judge of that?) Six of those ten years entailed being 'ghosted' between a bewildering succession of different prisons & lunatic asylums where they did their best to drive me to mental breakdown. I never expected to be allowed out alive, but thanks to an honest psychiatrist who was not a puppet of The State (as so many are) I was released, & here I am - STILL exposing the corruption which is rampant in our courts. I do so in memory of my brave young shipmates who died around me 68 years ago, the equally brave German sailors that we killed, & what we believed we were fighting for. They have all been betrayed: EVERYTHING we fought against then is here now in Britain, an Orwellian Police State, just as bad as Nazi Germany, but less honest, the victims fewer - AS YET!
Why were they so determined to silence me? In 1997 I stood for Parliament as an 'Indepenedent Old Age Pensioner' & published the book CAUSE for CONCERN. The main point of manifesto & book was my concern at the LACK of concern from regular politicians at the ever increasing number of violent attacks on the old & vulnerable, almost unheard of until the 1960s. However, the second subject in each was corruption in the courts, of which I had newly become aware. It earned me powerful enemies, but they were not too worried, I was just a noisy old buffoon a Parliamentary No-Hoper. This view of me changed after my single-handed success in the European Court of Human brought a vital change in British law. The change is much hated by lawyers & judges - & I am hated for it!
That is only a tiny part of the still continuing horror story. I am STILL suffering attack, physical & financial.
Norman Scarth.
PS: Attached is the document banning reporting of my 'trial'. Why did the 'News Media' make no outcry then? The same reason that they make no serious complaint about Police State Britain: They are all, tabloid & serious alike (even Private Eye!), as essential a part of this Police State as was Josef Goebbels in Hitler's Germany. No doubt there are reporters & even editors who would like to tell the truth, but they are all under the thumbs of the Press Barons & Media Moguls. How could The Press eventually publish a report of of my trial & conviction, when no reporters were ever present? Obviously, they published what they were told by the prosecution.
PPS: “In a State which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison” said Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862). It is the highest compliment, that the Judicial Mafia & the rest of the gangsters who now rule Britain felt the need to go to such extra-ordinary lengths to silence a little old man like me. Well, they haven't succeeded yet NS."

You are brilliant Barbara! Just a word about my present attitude. It would indeed be nice, but I am not really fighting for justice for myself. I AM seeking to expose the corruption which continues to claim so many victims.

Hi Barb, keep up the good work, they should employ you in child protection, thanks for doing so much for all of us

Thanks, and ditto to you, you are doing a great job trying to expose corruption and protect the next generation as well. The sad fact is that at the moment people like me would not have a hope of getting such a job, because of the panic attacks and depression which comes and goes, but its making me too unreliable to employ, plus I can hardly see anything properly these days. I wish that things were doifferent, but at the moment people like me are just considered to be useless scum. I would love to be employed in child protection, I would like to help the police break up paedophile rings, but I would never have any chance of getting a job with the police, I am too old now and also my eyes and panic attacks would stop me. I do not think all the police are corrupt.
