The State Media
service (BBC) is
reporting that Mr Justice Beatson has quashed a control order on the grounds that a suspected terrorist?
has been deprived of his liberty.
The Home Secretary however has decided to ignore the Judge, and has
issued a new control order whilst appealing the first.
The suspect –
known only as “E” – was required to stay at an address between the
hours of 0700 and 1900. He was not allowed to see unauthorised visitors at the
address, have a mobile phone or use the internet.
One can only
assume from this bias reporting that the suspect was allowed to wander freely
at night, so one asks, what was the purpose of the control order in the first
A total of 18
control orders are currently in force. Two suspects subject to the control
orders – a British citizen and an Iraqi – are currently missing.
A third suspect,
as reported by the BBC
– a male British national – absconded before a new control order could be
served in January.
If no control
order was in place, and they missed him before they could issue a new order,
then he has not absconded. He has gone about his lawful business, and not
subject to a control order.
Tut, tut, tut,
such bad bad biased reporting from the BBC. Still it shows that the propaganda
machine is still working, albeit at a reduced level until No.10 is cleared out.
The orders were
brought in for cases where there was not enough evidence to bring suspects to
trial. Was a time when we could say proudly, innocent until proven guilty. If there is not enough evidence to make a
case in court, and convict, then he should be released, and so should the other
the Police have no evidence, no case and no conviction that should mean no
detention or loss of liberty. FOR ANYONE.
powers were EXACTLY how the Gestapo
