"It's One Of Those JEP 'No Comment' Days" PART 2

Former Senator due to start convictions appeal


Stuart Syvret

FORMER Senator Stuart Syvret was today due to begin appealing various criminal convictions that he believes were brought against him unlawfully.
The ex-politician is currently on bail after being handed a ten-week jail term for contempt of court by the Magistrate’s Court in November.
At that same hearing he was also fined £4,200 for motoring and data protection offences and ordered to pay £10,000 costs.
Yesterday Syvret told the Court of Appeal that he would be appealing against the convictions and sentences – of which he has served just one day in prison so far – on a number of grounds, including that the case against him was biased and politically motivated, that it was an abuse of process and that during the course of his trial he was prevented from cross-examining witnesses to the extent that he would have liked.
The court had earlier dismissed a number of applications from the former Health Minister, including two to have the appeal adjourned so that he could have access to more evidence and one to call a number of witnesses for the appeal.

  1. They have tried their hardest to bankrupt him, make him homeless, make him, or make him out, to be mentally disturbed.

    But none of the above has, or will stop him.

    No doubt about it.

    Stuart is a brave and courageous man.

  2. You have to give it to the man, he does not give up! And for that I am going to toast to him! Thanks Syvret for your tenacity & courage for what you stand for, if others had only a piece of his character, how life would be so different in Jersey, it's time for us all to stand now and be counted.

    Starting with Philip Bailhache who wants to stand as Senator, lets get a petition going and stop this man for once and for all!

    If we all did our bit, we would make change and for the better!
