The following is a Press Release on behalf of Andrew Withers.
MISCONDUCT IN PUBLIC OFFICE
On March 2nd I received the last of documentation that had been withheld for eighteen months by the private office of the Secretary of State for Business,Innovation and Skills. This was only released with the threat of a Court Hearing in the Bristol Registry on January 28th.
Having reviewed the documents with my legal advisors, I am content that there is ample evidence of the common law offence of ‘Misconduct in Public Office’ by various officials working for the Insolvency Service.
One internal document headed ‘how to respond to Liam Fox MP’ contains a significant lie by officials working for BIS to mislead the Secretary of State and to withhold evidence of perjury and forged documents.
As such on the 23rd March 2011, a letter was sent to the Treasury Solicitor offering to have a meeting with Mr Ed Davey MP the responsible Minister, so that he can see the accumulated evidence of misconduct by his officials. This letter has been acknowledged. This is to give the Minister a chance to prove that he is not complicit in this activity by public officials and to save the costs of further legal action.
Despite being named as the respondent by a District Judge sitting in the Bristol Registry, Ed Davey MP has written to myself on the 30th November 2010 via Liam Fox MP, saying this is a matter that he cannot be involved with. Earlier on November 12th 2010. Solicitors acting for the Secretary of State wrote to the same District Judge seeking to introduce the same officials who have withheld evidence and introduced forged documents as the ‘best placed’ respondent instead of the Secretary of State. This is being opposed at the next hearing in May.
Further ‘anonymous’ letters from Plymouth have surfaced with Plymouth post marks with attached documentation issued by officials working for the Insolvency Service in Plymouth dated 1st July 2010. As with other evidence this has been handed over to Avon and Somerset Police.
Today the Website of the Libertarian Party and associated websites were subjected to intense scrutiny for most of the day by the Insolvency Service in Leicester using ‘ripper’ software. This is further evidence of a public body acting in a ‘political’ way. All of the visits were logged along with the IP addresses.
Accordingly the following email was sent to the Treasury Solicitor today.
I have been notified by my IT department that the Insolvency Service in Leicester has been using Ripper Software on the website of the Libertarian Party and of other websites associated with the Libertarian Party. This has been going on most of today and has been monitored and recorded.
I am placing you on notice that these attacks have been recorded with the IP addresses utilised, and the use of the information gleaned by the use of ripper software is subject to copyright.
This is being viewed as further evidence of Misconduct in Public Office, that a public body is spending time on party political matters and will be shown to the Judge.
Likewise further ‘anonymous’ letters have surfaced with Plymouth postmarks, these have again been handed to Avon & Somerset Police
You should treat this as a cease and desist notice
The Secretary Of State has utilised powers ‘ in the public interest’, the public interest is not served by smears,forgeries, contempt of Court and criminal activity.
