Shock at harsh sentence on 85 year old campaigner



Supporters of Norman Scarth, a colourful local character and ex war veteran from Yorkshire  are shocked at what they say is an astonishing sentence metered out to a frail old man for using a recording devicer in a court room
85 year old anti corruption campaigner Norman Scarth who claims to be the victim of a conspiracy to silence him by the judicial system was sentenced to six months imprisonment for making a tape recording of a court case from the public gallery at Bradford crown court.
The sentence metered out has received widespread criticism and comparisons to rioters who have received 3 months for admitting to assaulting police officers in the Manchester riots.
Scarth is said to have made the recording after the court refused to provide hearing aid loops.
Judge Jonathan Rose was alerted by a court worker to the recording device that Scarth was using in the public gallery , Scarth was arrested handcuffed and remanded to the cells to be sentenced the next day July 26 at Bradford crown court.
Richard Mawrey QC told him that he was a ‘crazed old man.
Editors Comment: 
However one thing remain clear tonight, this is indeed a shocking case where an 85 year old man is in prison for six months for the crime of using a tape recorder whilst rioters have been given bail.

  1. Sentenced on July 26 by an angry Judge Jonathan Rose. Public furious around the world. Leeds Prison is a class B prison for serious offenders. He is being held in solitary confinement and denied access to a lawyer. He is denied his pain medications and corrupt prison staff are stealing his stamps.

    The Governor General of Canada accepted his petition to the Queen for a pardon, and forwarded the request directly to Her Majesty.

    Supporters on standby for news from the courts.

    Absolutely scandalous. No room in the prisons for thugs.

    Norman offers criminals his cell.

    Authorities threatened with UN complaint action.

  3. I cannot convey to you strongly enough my absolute disgust at the jailing of a man who has served his country in the hour of need and is then treated worse than an animal. Is this really England? Words are hard to find to comment on this outrage. This man has served and we see him cast down by a corrupt system that knows of only one service, self service. If contempt is present it is the contempt of Judge Rose for a man who has already paid the price and is now entitled to a peaceful and happy old age. But he is a cussed old salt with fight and backbone in abundance and I salute him for the virtues that this corrupt regime certainly lacks, and they know it, the craven cowards. May the Lord be kind to you my Friend and bring you the peace you deserve. I certainly give you my respect.

  5. My Name is Stan Embling...from Scunthorpe..I say "Free NORMAN SCARTH and OUT THIS (19th century) JUDGE"
    I'm a 74 year old Veteran who was on active service in the Malaysian Jungles (during 1950's Malaysian Jungle warfare campaign) alongside the Gurkhas (was told by UK authorities,)to preserve and protect Democratic Rights and freedoms; not just of Malaysian people but for UK and Commonwealth citizens also..I Like Norman, (myself from being injured and disabled in a works accident [due to utter negligence of my employer of 29 years,])I have found similar as Norman found in his attempt to get democratic rights, freedoms, and common justice, (which should include "FAIR HEARINGS", Those Right's and Freedoms as with Common Justice have been absent!! Deprived from us in my opinion by the misfeasance or malfeasance of "Judges", whom it appears appear are utilizing Laws (they appear to make -up as they go along,)more a-kin to "COMMON PURPOSE" and the draconian Laws brought into being by Hitlers Fascist Mob after "The Reichstag Fire" (of February 1933,) called "The Enabling Act"; which The fascist regime used to deprive decent ordinary German people of their Rights. (Google it,also The Secret CIA "RED HOUSE REPORT" also details from ex KGB spy Yuri Besmenov, who defect to America..)I then read-up about The Legal Advice Law Germany brought in from 1935, which to this day remains compatible with all present EU legislation on Human Rights and Freedoms!!..Yes in my opinion this is precisely Why Judges appear to Make their own Laws -up as the go along knowing they can get away with it our State! Wasn't this fact recently made Most clear when a disagreement as to what Laws were being Used in British Courts by the Two top Law Lords themselves??
    Therefore until Judges are made to observe/utilize the correct Laws as stipulated in our Human Rights and reveal their cloaked "Conflicts of Interests" some have to "Corporate Organisations"; then Norman, myself and the many other Victims who have /are suffering from results of White Collar Fraud" will continue to do so surely?? Therefore I say Free NORMAN and "OUT THE JUDGE"

    Thanks Brian
    Dreadful case...no wonder there's riots on the streets in Britain.
    Cheers, Bill Rowlings

    PS: I've written, and sent, a letter to the local newspaper, the Yorkshire Post.
    Here it is:

    From: Bill Rowlings, CEO, Civil Liberties Australia


    One must heap praise on Judge Jonathan Rose, the man who sentenced the 85-year-old Norman Scarth to six months in prison for recording in a court room at Bradford.



    This Rose of Yorkshire has pre-empted future digital device licentiousness by scores of aged war heroes lurking in court corridors to thwart the long-standing judicial rules which keep the law unimpeachable and its deliberations quiet, unheard and quite mysterious.



    Scarth is a sailor, like the scurvy Jimmy Cook who hailed from similar parts about 200 years ago. Cook was precisely of the same ilk, just the type to have used an audio recorder if one had been available back then.



    If only a judge of Rose’s conviction was in place in the late-1700s to stop Cook. History shows how much damage one sailor can do if he is allowed to use modern technology to probe at the boundaries of ignorance.



    Congratulations Judge Rose, you are man before your time.

    THE VOICE OF RUSSIA

    BRITISH THEMIS AGAINST WWII VETERAN

    The London High Court ruled on Thursday that British WWII veteran Norman Scarth, sentenced to six months in prison for audio recording in court, will remain in custody.

    The 86-year-old was put behind bars in the city of Leeds after he used a sound recording device during a court hearing, which is against the law in Britain. While admitting the breach of law, Scarth and his supporters also pointed to a disproportionately harsh verdict against the British veteran, who has already sent a plea for mercy to Queen Elizabeth.

    A prominent human rights activist, Scarth was imprisoned on July 25, 2011 for making a recording of a Royal Court hearing in Bradford. Scarth, who has hearing problems, explained that he decided to use his dictation device after he discovered the absence of head-phones in the court. He was quickly sentenced to six months in a prison for serious offenders later that day. Since then, he has been denied all visitors and medical aid – something that infuriated his supporters who continue to demand his immediate release. More than 900 people have already signed a petition to this effect, which was posted on the Internet earlier this week.

    The Scarth case and the petition were then submitted to an appeals court, which said its “No” to the veteran’s release on Thursday. Right now, Scarth’s supporters are calling for a public probe into the matter.

    During the Second World War, Scarth was a crewmember of the Matchless destroyer, which took part in the so-called northern convoys, tasked with delivering military hardware and food to the Soviet ports of Arkhangelsk and Murmansk. In this regard, Scarth certainly deserves to be pardoned, but meddling in Britain’s domestic affairs is not up our alley, of course, our political commentator says.

    That the London court refused to release Scarth on bail really raises eyebrows, our commentator adds, pointing to the court’s soft sentences in relation to those taking part in recent riots in London and other British cities. Those public enemies were freed on bail in a move that our commentator says indicates Britain’s backsliding on democracy.

    The past seven months have seen a whole array of human rights abuses in Britain, which notably still remains in the grip of the phone-hacking scandal related to the News of the World tabloid. Adding fuel to the public fire was the recently declassified information about tortures used by British special services against suspected terrorists. As for the Scarth case, it once again confirms the fact that something is wrong with British society, which Prime Minister David Cameron said should be “repaired” as soon as possible.

  10. As Norman points out: “Like the Germans at the start of WW2 most of the British people today are happy to behave like ostriches or are too cowardly to speak up. It was wonderful for the Germans then, but there was a heavy price to pay in the end. There will be again." And he also quite rightly says that "anyone who does not make their voices heard should not complain if they or theirs should end up in a gas chamber." Too many people have evidence of the endemic corruption that is polluting all courts, local authorities, government agencies and almost all other spheres of power, in all societies. If nothing is done about it there will be world wide Anarchy. When that happens, everyone loses. The present system is unsustainable and will not protect the corrupt, the guilty and the ostriches forever.

  11. Keep returning government bad energy back to source, with love, not hate, because (R)evolution works!

    (R)evolution - is simply keeping peaceful evolution in mind.

    I created the concept because self-evidently the system is corrupt, and we can use the power of our minds to invoke The Law of Karma to create positive change.

    For more details of thus concept, read posts on facebook Zen Zen. Namaste, Zen

  12. We absolutely need to get the judge put in prison with a 6 to 12 month sentence, to make an example and send out a message to all public servants that you do not dare step beyond the due process of law including all maxims of law, common law, equity and human rights which supersede by a great deal any statue or act.
