"Jersey Lawyers Renew Their Oath of Office - You Just Couldn't Make This UP!!!"

Oh Boy, did I howl with laughter when
I spotted this nonsense!

Jersey Lawyers renewing their Oath of Office? Just as well, as this is the only time they ever repeat their Oath of Office. Same with our Judgey Wudgey's who refuse to even "Operate under their Oath of Office" whilst sitting in their alleged courts of law, committing fraud
against the people.

Below is a link to one such instance of refusal to confirm an Oath of Office, every time this happens the alleged judge is committing fraud and treason!

Assize d'Heritage: Dress to impress

If you were out and about in St Helier this morning you may have witnessed a colourful old tradition in the Royal Square.

It was all part of the process Jersey lawyers undertake every year to renew their oaths in court.

The Assize d'Heritage also involves the island's seigneurs - or lords of the manor.

It is a traditional ritual, dating back more than 500 years, and it is believed to be the second oldest land court in Europe.

The pomp and ceremony hark back to a time when lawyers, Jurats and Feudal Lords of the Manor were in power.

Jersey's Attorney General Tim le Cocq said the day was a reminder of how some laws have evolved over the hundreds of years.

He said "If convicted of adultery, then a crime, a person would be imprisoned and publically punished in the stocks, and then in the quaint but rather chilling language of the time, whipped to the afusion of blood, unless of course you were a States member, in which case you got fined. I wonder what the European Court of Human Rights would make of that today."

Justice may be better balanced now, but legal fees are hugely expensive. Although, the creation of Legal Aid is seeing the start of a fairer system.

Jersey's Batonnier Sue Pearmain said, "The expenses are high and we want to make sure justice is available for everyone, not just the very poor or the very rich, so legal aid covers those who find it difficult to meet legal fees. There's a criteria that's laid down in the guidelines and if one meets that criteria, sometimes one makes a contribution, sometimes one doesn't pay at all."

"Those with [De Facto] power will not let it go without a fight. And if it comes down to it, they will first seek to use the law, then abuse it, then change it, then disregard it entirely. Our strategy must be to always and only embrace the law. That is what will save us when they abandon it entirely."



  1. My thanks to Rico for bringing this to my attention :)

  2. "We want to make sure that justice is available for everyone."

    Now I have heard it all.

  3. States of Jersey Law
    The way in which the States Assembly operates is set out in various legislation. The States of Jersey Law 2005 includes:

    a preamble that sets out Jersey's ability to govern itself in all internal affairs
    the membership of the States and the way in which members are elected
    the make up of the Council of Ministers and the roles of Ministers
    the powers and privileges of the States
    the various committees and panels that must be set up by the States
    the oath of office for members

    Is the oath of office being discussed for lawyers from the States of Jersey Law?

  4. why do we have so many lawyers {liars } here in this small island ?.
    when you think how well paid they are makes you wonder where all the money is coming from and will the island be able to sustain there pay packets for much longer what with all the people losing there jobs and trouble around the world financially .
