This has gone beyond a joke.

Please publicise if you can. He has now served longer than Lord Ahmed who killed a man on the motorway shortly after texting. Ahmed served just 16 days. Refresh your memory here.

These emails arrived in my inbox this morning:

Mr. Geof Dobson Prison Reform Trust

15 Northburgh Street



Dear Mr. Dobson:



CASE S20110514, COURT 5, JULY 26, 2011 

I wish to draw your attention to a very serious and urgent problem, to which authorities are not responding, and the vindictive circumstances under which a severe and unjust sentence was meted out to Mr. Norman Scarth. Nobody at all is responding; in particular, government ministers who have the power to intervene, yet are wilfully blind, or attempt to be so. 

I ask that you take emergency action by using your influence to help Norman Scarth, who is suffering torturous conditions, and denied medications and access to a lawyer.

Judge Jonathan Rose of Bradford Crown Court committed Norman to Leeds Class B Prison for six months, which he is spending in solitary confinement. He is charged with contempt of court for attempting to switch on a recording device in court.

The courts are denying his right to habeas corpus and it seems that the intent is to cause Mr. Scarth’s premature death in Leeds Prison, simply for turning on a recording device.

There is much media attention surrounding this case, and we intend to release more details to the media at the beginning of the week, along with filing a complaint with the UN and EU for the gross violations of Human Rights Conventions, which filing will take place before the end of the day on Monday, August 15, 2011.

Leeds Court Manager has denied Mr. Scarth’s Writ of Habeas Corpus, twice, and now the Royal Courts of Justice in London is similarly blocking the processing. A full week has already passed, and there is obviously criminal collusion to deny Mr. Scarth, an 85 year old World War II veteran, his rights as a human being.

Her Majesty has been made aware of all the details of this case by the Governor General of Canada. Mr. Scarth was brought into the courtroom like a common criminal, in handcuffs, July 26,  and sentenced by Judge Jonathan Rose.

There is a huge public outcry, and this matter will not be laid to rest.

I am sure you will be similarly outraged.

Your sincerely,



For the urgent attention of the addressees:
Mr. Nick Hardwick, HM Inspector of Prisons
Rt. Hon. Crispin Blunt, Prisons Minister
Mr. Michael Spurr, National Offenders Management Service
Mr. Paul Baker, Governor, Leeds Prison
Ms. Emma Marshall, Prisons and Probations Ombudsman Assessment Team
The Rt. Hon. Kenneth Clarke, MP, Secretary of State for Justice
Ms. Maggie Woods, HMPS Healthcare Manager, Leeds Prison
Ms. Ann Lavery, PALS NHS Leeds
Dear Sirs:
You are hereby put on notice for your failure to attend to the matter of Mr. Norman Scarth’s unlawful confinement and official complaints, as advised in previous urgent emails.
Further to previous correspondenceon the matter of Norman Scarth, I wish to impress upon your that significant delay on your authority’s part may well prove fatal to Mr. Scarth, who is an 85 year old gentleman with health problems. You are aware of the relationship between distress and cardiac arrest. It is clear from Mr. Scarth’s correspondence that the Prison is placing him in severe distress. This places him at high risk of deterioration. Essentially, the matter is simple – Mr. Scarth should not be in prison, as he is not a danger to the public. It is therefore in the interests of the prison to avoid a fatality. In order to do that, you must recommend that his sentence and complaints be reviewed immediately.

I am therefore making the following points. Your response/or lack of will be used in the formal complaint made to the United Nations. 

1. Attached are further complaints from Mr. Scarth, which are not being actioned, and Ms. Emma Marshall has already been advised of this. I am placing you on notice that Norman Scarth, Prisoner A1903CF, Leeds Prison, is complaining about Age Discrimination and the fear of being abused by prison officers while showering. He is unable, therefore, to attend to personal hygiene.

The  other matters outlined in the attached documents, include
a. Denial of his basic rights,
b. Denial of his medications,
c. Denial of access to legal counsel
d. Theft of his property by prison staff.
2. You have already been advised that his complaints are not being processed. I am therefore  requesting an immediate intervention. Mr Scarth is a human being, and British subject in distress. It will therefore be considered wilful negligence, in the event no immediate action is taken. Unfortunately, slow correspondence will not do when someone is in physical distress and you have been wilfully blind in this matter. In the event this lack of action results in Norman’s death, those who have not acted will be held personally liable.
3. Wilful blindness will be considered criminal recklessness. All parties have been previously advised that Mr. Scarth has been denied his prescribed pain medication and, by denying him, all parties herein are aware of his torture in Leeds Prison, and will be held culpable.
4. Your authorities have a duty of care,  and should have acted immediately in order to alleviate the problem. As this has not happened, it will be considered gross negligence. Should anything happen to Mr. Scarth, it will be gross negligence causing death, which is a very serious matter indeed.5. May I ask that you provide all internal documents, as I wish to make a subject access request under the Data Protection Act combined with a Freedom of Information Act to access all internal documentation relevant to my formal complaint to yourselves.

In light of the seriousness of this issue, I shall be grateful if  Ms. Marshall  would re-evaluate her plan of action. URGENT intervention is required by all parties to this communication.

In conclusion, please advise, on the basis of previous complaints and several contacts made with Ms Emma Marshall, and the attached further complaints (none of which have been actioned by the prison), and including the complaint that complaints are not being actioned, how you intend to proceed and, when. You will no doubt agree that it is simply not adequate or acceptable for any of you evade the issues in light of the emergency nature of this issue.

As I have explained before to Ms. Emma Marshall, the delays that have been characteristic of this case are currently totally unacceptable. Significant stress leading to a cardiac arrest will result in death. Given the mortality rate of Leeds Prison is already significantly high, it may be in the authority’s best interests for immediate intervention. This may prevent future litigation and adverse publicity.

I hope to hear from you within 24 hours. If I have not heard from you, this document will be sent to the Special Rapporteurs at the United Nations accompanied by a formal complaint against the UK’s failure to care for its elderly prisoners in line with current human rights and equality legislation. Please review this link in relation to the steps that will be taken in 24 hours regarding the gross violation of civil liberties meted out on a elderly gentleman in the care of your authorities.

Best wishes,
Yours sincerely,
What a disgusting nation we live in.
Norman Scarth’s case was presented today at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. Norman attended by video link from Leeds, was in good mental health, and he presented his case to the judge in very respectful and polite terms.

Judge Wyn Williams DENIED NORMAN DUE PROCESS OF THE LAW. He adjourned the case until next week, sending Norman back to prison. There was coverage by Russian TV, and a few members of the press.

The judge ordered that Norman be allowed to have contact with legal representation, which the prison has been denying him. However, he refused to order that Norman be given his prescription medication, thereby forcing Norman to be kept in torture for a further week.

The judge did not release Norman and there were loud shouts and cries from the public gallery. Judge Williams was seen to be shaking.

Judge Wyn Williams has summoned Kenneth Clarke, Minister of Justice to Court next week, along with the Prison Governor, Paul Baker of Leeds Prison, who was supposed to have been present today, but was not.

Norman’s supporters are calling for the public WORLDWIDE to sign the public petition to FREE NORMAN, Arctic Convoy veteran hero, 86 years old who is being denied his human rights and medication in Leeds Prison, UK.

Will the public please help Norman Scarth by signing the petition as quickly as possible and telling all their friends? Will you please help with the campaign by spreading the word far and wide, contacting the media with this story, and  any and all contacts you may have so that this will go viral and we will get more names on the petition.
We need many more by next week.

    Appeal hearing 10.30 a.m. September 9, 2011, Royal Courts of Justice, The Strand, London, Court Room 5.

    In the ongoing case of British injustice, “Justice” Wyn Williams of the Royal Courts of Justice, London, UK, has twice denied 85 year old Norman Scarth his common law right to bail, and twice refused to order that he receive his prescription pain medications which are deliberately being denied him by all prison and health officials, and relevant regulatory authorities. Complicit are all officials, from the Health Officer of Leeds Prison, PALS NHS Leeds, Leeds Prison Governor, Paul Baker, HM Inspector of Prisons, Nick Hardwick, Dr. Peter Selby of the Independent Monitoring Board, Michael Spurr of N.O.M.S, and Crispin Blunt, Prisons Minister, and more. In addition, all members of the British parliament have been advised of this situation, including the Secretary of State for Justice and the Prime Minister – several times.

    Despite his requests, frail Norman Scarth has also been denied access to a qualified physician since his incarceration on July 26, 2011.

    The public is demanding a Public Inquiry, as it is felt that this is a conspiracy to torture an 85 year old man with intent to cause premature death, as Mr. Scarth has been outspoken about the judiciary and British legal system in the past. There would appear to be no freedom of speech in the United Kingdom, despite the government’s claims to the contrary. Supporters of Mr. Scarth have put all those in government on notice regarding corporate homicide and their personal roles in failure in duty of care and wilful blindness.

    Mr. Scarth was sentenced to six months in prison for attempting to turn on his phone to record a court hearing because he is partially deaf, and audio loops were not provided in the public gallery at Bradford Crown Court before proceedings started in a public hearing on July 25, 2011. According to an eye witness, Judge Jonathan Rose, a controversial figure connected with the Yorkshire Ripper Case, sentenced Norman Scarth to six months in prison, in anger. He is spending it IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT in Leeds Prison – a prison for serious offenders. He is a CIVIL prisoner, and is being denied certain of his rights, including his prescription medication. Since his incarceration, Mr. Scarth is still being denied his right to see a Legal Officer in the prison in order to obtain blank legal documents and forms for his appeal. Friends have mailed documents into him, but prison officers had been stealing his postage stamps and documents. Justice Wyn Williams had to issue a court order to the prison, commanding them to give him access to his personal legal counsel, as the avenues of communication were being blocked to him by the prison. This is against his legal rights, and a court order should never have been necessary.

    The public is wondering who is pulling the prison’s strings.

    However, the appeal is going ahead this Friday, with the obstacle having been overcome by Mr. Scarth’s ardent supporters.

    Nick Hardwick, HM Inspector of Prisons and Dr. Peter Selby, Chairman of the Independent Monitoring Board insist that they do not have the authority to intervene in the matter of prison abuses, despite their positions, and the public is questioning their existence, as it would appear that not one person in public office in the UK feels they have any accountability to the public or any higher authority, and that nor they do not feel the need for transparency or duty of care.

    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

    For further information, videos and details regarding the case here:

    At least one Baron, Viscount Exmouth, has signed the Public’s petition to Free Norman Scarth. Supporters of Mr. Scarth applauds his sense of morality, justice, and COMMON SENSE, and waits for others to sign. The UK judiciary is under extreme criticism, as comments from around the world (as noted on the petition) would indicate this to be a ridiculous ONGOING court case, which is wasting public funds and resources, and which is being viewed by supporters as a vindictive attempt by the judiciary and the British government to coax his premature death by heart attack or stroke, due to the torture and poor conditions of confinement for an 85 year old man. In just a few weeks, the petition to free Norman Scarth has gathered thousands of names and much criticism of the government and judiciary.

    Norman Scarth alleges that he has been victimised ever since he won a case against the British government in the European Court of Human Rights concerning secrecy in the British courts. This excessive, and apparently vindictive, sentence by Judge Rose, upheld by Justice Williams, would appear to support his claims and remove any doubts in the matter.

    The British government remains silent, and eyebrows are being raised around the world – particularly by the Russians. This is a high profile public interest case, which is only being truthfully covered by foreign media and the ever-growing social media.The public wants to know why, and is talking about more government collusion with the media, as in the News of the World scandal.

    Biased reporting on the case was sent to the media from the court reporter at the royal Courts of Justice. It was picked up by the Government’s BBC,
    and British Forces Network, and appears to be a blatant attempt to discredit the old age pensioner, rather than reporting full details of the case.

    There is no mention by the BBC or the British Forces Network of Justice Williams’ abject refusal to order that Mr. Scarth’s medication be provided, thereby ending his physical and mental torture and the unlawful conditions of his imprisonment.

    Congratulations to The Rt. Hon. David Cameron, Prime Minister for the UK, for allowing televised court hearings.


    as in other European countries, and intervene in this appalling injustice against 85 year old Norman Scarth by the prison authorities and judiciary.

    and to stop any potential corruption and vindictiveness by the courts, and the tampering with transcripts by the judiciary.

    What do the British judiciary and government have to hide?

    The government is recording the public’s every move; should it not work both ways?

    This is not democracy and it is not serving the public interest.

    Norman Scarth and allied forces fought and died to keep Britain free of fascism. What happened?

    Should the British government be preaching justice, democracy, and freedom of speech in the Middle East,
    and sending out young men as cannon fodder, yet again, when these ideals are not even upheld in the UK?

    Shouldn’t Britain be meeting its obligations as a UN member before invading other countries in the name of Human Rights?

    Charity begins at home, Mr. Cameron. Would you please make your position known in this matter?

  6. If Norman’s supporters in court on Thursday show solidarity by holding their mobile phones out as soon as judge Wyn Williams enters the court and so give him the impression that they are all recording him.
    He will not know if some or all of the group are actually recording him and therefore there would be no evidence to support a charge of contempt even if he called in 50 police.
    If the group hold their nerve, dont take heed of his order to switch off and keep their phones held aloft, he could not call that contempt?
    Wyn Williams would have to leave the phone carrying public in his court and then go on to further terrorise and put the life of an old veteran in a prison cell for the same thing or order his release.
    Norman has highlighted how the judges hide and cover up their judicial crimes by their rules of no cameras or recording in their courts.
    He could not jail the lot of them but this mass action just might cause a media debate that would open the courts to scrutiny like they do in every civilised country in the world. The British judges say the rule protects the innocent but it is really to protect their absolute power and perversion from scrutiny.

  9. Judge Jonathan Rose unlawfully and maliciously jailed Norman Scarth.
    Rose wrote a book about Stefan Kiszko five years after Kiszko was released and deceased. It was a tissue of lies written to protect the people who framed Kiszko and Dick Holland the cop who performed the stitch up and did the deal with Peter Sutcliffe for all the Ripper’s murders and to point the finger of suspicion at somebody else.

    Jonathan Rose should be investigated himself for writing those lies to protect corrupt officials in the judiciary but as we can see he has been rewarded by being made a judge himself.

    Meanwhile the Real Yorkshire Ripper, Billy Tracey is a free man living in London for the past twenty five years and without doubt he will have a litany of serious crimes under his belt and many victims living in trauma.
    People like Rose dont worry about that. He can dish out judgments like this
    and lock up men like Norman Scarth who dare to expose corruption in the courts.

    The bizarre aspect of this case was that after Stefan Kiszko was exonerated they stitched up another innocent man for the Molseed murder to close the case forever. They needed a fall guy, somebody from the area with form who would tick some of the boxes.
    Ronald Castree was targetted because he had committed an indiscretion with a young girl in the same town about a year later than that murder. His crime was so bad that he was only fined by the magistrate and the girl couldnt remember what happened thirty years later but it was enough to damn him in the eyes of a jury.

    Not knowing of Rose’s interest in writing a book about the Molseed murder in which he made a case against another man, Castree was defended by Jonathan Rose, then a QC, in the initial phase of his arraignment. Rose and Judge Stephen Gullick were working together to stitch him up from the start.

    this webpage of the T and A identifies rogue judge, Jonathan Rose.

    Coincidentally Norman Scarth was in Gullick’s court and asked him to speak up as he couldnt hear him speaking.

    Please circulate this evidence to others to expose Judge Rose for his serious crime in covering up corruption in the Kiszko case by writing the book titled INNOCENTS and going on to help frame another man, Ronald Castree, for that murder in order to protect Dick Holland and his legal friends. Now he has abused his position as a judge to lock up a very brave old man who dared to question his authority.
