"Improper & Imprudent - But For Whom?"

Royal Court say no to Curtis Warren appeal

Curtis Warren

"There is no cruder tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of Law  and in the name of justice."

Jersey's Royal Court has refused to approach the Lieutenant Governor for another appeal hearing for Curtis Warren.

Mr Beloff QC said it would be improper and imprudent to do so.

The Lieutenant Governor is the only person in Jersey who can grant a second appeal.

Curtis Warren's lawyer, Advocate Stephen Baker will now apply directly.

The court have also refused to release the name of a juror involved in Warren's trial, who was allegedly wrongfully approached by Jersey Police.

Curtis Warren was jailed for 13 years in 2009 for attempting to import £1 million worth of cannabis into Jersey. He is currently serving his sentence in Full Sutton category A prison in York.

Advocate Baker said: "Mr Warren is extremely concerned that there is a reluctance by the prosecution to allow an independent police force to investigate allegations of jury tampering
by the Jersey police."

Earlier this year Mr Warren failed to have his sentence overturned at the Supreme Court in London. But Advocate Baker has applied for his clients case to be heard by the European Court of Human Rights.

    Another soundbite from Jersey's only "news"paper. There is the potential of a huge story here, about how the Police Force, under David Warcup's tenure, was OUT OF CONTROL.

    The alleged tampering with the juror would have been under Warcup's watch, where his second in command, Mick Gradwell, has been accused by witnesses under oath, of leaking sensitive data to a national "journalist" during a live Child Abuse Enquiry.

    It is looking more and more like the Force was completely out of control with Warcup at the helm considering it was under his watch that 10 police officers searched a Senior Politicians place of residence without a search warrant on an alleged data protection charge.

    But all we're going to get from the State Controlled Jersey media is the odd little soundbite.
