As readers will be aware, Cyril was up for appeal today before the Royal Court against his sentence for, erm, contempt of court.
He showed that Bridget Shaw had acted in a biased manner, and had denied him his International Human Rights amongst other little indiscretions.
The prosecutor had asserted that Cyril was following Freeman On The Land advice and that a judgement in Canada had show Cyril's actions to be those of a F.O.T.L. and their "ilke". So What?
The prosecutor had asserted that decisions made in the magistrates court had led to the use of the words "Freeman On The Land Outburst" on Cyril's charge sheet and was included in the judgement against Cyril.
Just one slight little problem with that! This allegation of "Freeman On The Land Outburst" was made rather early in the year and could not have been taken from the judgement in Canada. The judgement in Canada (as myself and Cyril have read it) was made only a few months ago!!! Were the prosecution lying? Just to thick to check their facts? Or making it up as they went along?
As expected, King Birt dismissed Cyril's appeal without a word of explanation but stating there will be a written judgement at a later date. We will look forward to deconstructing that little number in the forthcoming months.
So, Cyril had to go back to prison for another five days to finish his original sentence, no biggy, but there was a twist in the tale that shook myself and Cyril somewhat, the implications of which are deeply worrying for the future of alleged justice in Jersey.
Cyril rang me from prison tonight, he had had a visit from the Viscounts representative who was also in court today. This guy said to Cyril that he had some document from court (which he refused to show to Cyril) that said Cyril had to serve an extra FORTY TWO days in prison, and then Poof.... he just disappeared!!!
If there was another issue, then why was it not addressed in court today? Why was Cyril not given the opportunity to defend any action in conjunction with this matter? And how can a member of the Viscounts office give someone an extra forty two days in prison? Why was King Birt not sentencing Cyril to this extra time?
I would urge all readers to look at my postings on "A week trying to wake the sheep" as it is all unfolding before our very eyes!!!
