On Wednesday 11 January 2016, Melanie Shaw, the whistleblower on the horrific abuse of children which occurred at the then county council-run Beechwood Children’s Home in Nottinghamshire in the late 1980s, was given a two-year custodial sentence in a secret court hearing.
The nature of the charge against her is unclear and that information is refused when requested of court staff. The case took place late yesterday morning but it did not appear on any court lists until the hearing was past.
Melanie Shaw did not appear in person in court for this hearing, which was conducted by video link from her prison, as has also been the case with previous of her court ‘appearances’. She states that without fail, whenever in the past she has given testimony by such video link, she has been cut off on the pretext that “you were shouting”, which she denies.
The effect of this is to prevent her testimony from going on the court record, as well as to prevent her as defendant from hearing certain deliberations and assertions being made in the “courtroom”.
In addition, UK Column News is very confident that at this particular secret hearing, no member of the public was present, and particularly not any of the supporters who have been following Melanie Shaw’s case very closely. The public is therefore entirely dependent on any transcripts—accurate and complete or otherwise—which may be produced in order to find out what was said at the hearing.
Time already served by Melanie Shaw in prison on remand, namely 11 months, mostly in solitary confinement, does not appear to have been set against the two-year custodial sentence imposed yesterday.
Melanie Shaw is one of the few child abuse whistleblowers who is prepared to name politicians as having been among the abusers of her fellow inmates, some of whom she asserts were murdered on site at Beechwood. Her reminiscences date from 1987, in which year the Cabinet was constituted of these politicians until the general election that May and of these politicians thereafter. (This does not constitute an allegation by UK Column News that any particular Cabinet minister at the above links was an abuser.)
Melanie Shaw’s correspondence address in prison is:
Melanie Shaw, prison number A4126DE,
HMP New Hall,
Dial Wood, Flockton,
Wakefield, WF4 4XX.
It is advisable if writing to Melanie Shaw to use a card or light letter containing no stamps, blank paper, return envelopes, money or any other objects. These are highly likely to be confiscated, potentially together with the letter or card itself.
Definition of terms: By “secret court hearing” means:
(a) a court hearing not listed until after it took place;
(b) a court hearing whose outcome (i.e. of what alleged crime Melanie Shaw has been convicted) is withheld from the public on request, to the puzzlement of some court staff themselves.
By these two definitions, UK Column News is quite confident in describing Melanie Shaw as a political prisoner.
Whilst the “Government” lock up those who expose them for who they really are via documented instances of institutional child abuse, the public go on with their day to day lives, without a care.
What can you do?
Article 61 was invoked in 2001 and since then it has remained in force. It gives YOU the right to diffidatio (renunciation of your presumed allegiance as a subject from this treasonous administration of governance filled with impostors, paedophiles and war criminals) and means that that the people of the UK can within a day of realisation rise up and strip parliament from all corruption. It has been done in Britain at least 30 times in the past, the last of which was the Glorious Revolution of 1688.
You can do this by having a look at our oath template and using it or making one of your own. Once you have sworn your oath and have gained 3 signatory witnesses, as article 61 states, you can legally “distress and distrain” the self-purporting Government by ” seizing it’s possesions (distraint).
Will you use these rights with the rest of those who have sworn the oath? Will you stand under the law?
