"Illegal Police Raids - No Answers Forthcoming"
"The Complaints Begin"
Having been denied any explanation as to why I was kidnapped and why my home was raided a year ago by the Jersey Policy Men, I have now had to institute a complaint against Mike Bowron, Jersey's Chief of Police.
Will I get any answers from our Bailiff, let alone a response?
Below is my letter requesting information from the police that I am entitled to, and below that, my complaint to Sir Michael Birt, Bailiff of Jersey.
"Questions Without Answers"
"Letter Of Complaint"
Birt, M. C. St. J.,
Royal Court House
Royal Square, St Helier
Dear Sir Michael,
I hereby notify you that I wish to lodge a formal complaint against the Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police, Mike Bowron.
This complaint arises out of an incident during which I was kidnapped by a number of Jersey’s policemen, then subsequently unlawfully detained against my will for six hours.
During the six hours of this unlawful detention, my house keys were taken and my home was ransacked and my private property stolen. All this was done without a lawful search warrant, an independent witness, and without my consent.
These unlawful actions were a large contributory factor to the heart attack that I suffered just one short week later.
On the 16/09/2012 I wrote to the duty Inspector, Insp Le Hegerat, asking a number of pertinent questions about the unlawful process I had been subjected to, and to which questions I have received the usual silence.
On the 01/11/2012 I received a telephone call from a police officer at Rouge Bouillon Police HQ informing me that I was not going to be charged with any offence in connection with the incident for which I was kidnapped.
A short time later (two minutes) this same officer called me back stating that I was not going to receive a response to my letter to Inspector Le Hegerat in connection with my unlawful detention, and the illegal police raid on my home.
As I understand the law, I am fully entitled to know who has made a complaint against me, and what that complaints process entails. As Mike Bowron is the head of the police force, and wholly responsible for the actions of those under his authority and command, he must be held accountable for his officers’ actions.
It is my intention to sue the police for their gross misconduct and I shall therefore require full disclosure of all the facts and evidence relative to this case. It is clear to me from the phone call I received that Chief Officer Bowron has no intention whatsoever of divulging any information to myself in this regard. This cannot be lawful, and I ask you to look into the matters that I have raised insofar as the conduct of all the officers concerned in this case is concerned.
Please find enclosed my letter to Inspector Le Hegerat for your perusal.
