Royal Mail; Payback for 'adjudication' in this blog of District Judge Avent's dismissal of Declan's claim against the Greater London Authority-commissioned St Mungo's that alleged the falsification and fabrication of data against us? (WITH UPDATE - Day 28 5/4/2017)

20 February: The Central London County Court: District Judge Avent dismisses Declan's claim against the Greater London Authority-commissioned St Mungo's that alleged the falsification and fabrication of data against us (WITH UPDATE 16/3/2017)

Our good friend in Washington DC, Don Collins, hit the nail on the head last Thursday when he wrote that Declan and I were under (immense) pressure to "adjudicate" District Judge Avent's dismissal of Declan's claim against the Greater London Authority-commissioned St Mungo's that alleged the falsification and fabrication of data against us. We only received DJ Avent's order on the 2nd day after the expiration of our statutory 21 days to apply for permission to appeal (see my previous blog post). Now it's Royal Mail that we are dealing with. This is what the Royal Mail Track and Trace on our employment contracts to the United States looked like last Friday:

And this is what the same Royal Mail Track and Trace looks like tonight:

DAY 28 UPDATE 5 April (10.41am): Royal Mail have explained the disappearance from their website of the Track and Trace above as a "problem with the system". It's appearing at the moment as the first image above, with not even the first Royal Mail collection office (Romford Mail Centre) registered. Royal Mail aim to deliver to the United States within 5-7 working days. Our employment contracts were posted on 25 February (i.e. 28 working days ago) and the postage cost was £9.25. Yesterday I updated my blog post of 16 January, The blocks on public access to our Church and State website continue unabated (WITH UPDATE 4/4/2017). I updated the blog post with last night's 242nd block (a record-equalling seventh of the day) on access to our Church and State website since 26 July 2016. The blog post also reveals the daily targeting to fluctuating degrees of category pages throughout the site which continues to this day. For example, the second article below has 1/2 million Facebook likes/shares (not zero):

Re: Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)

Paragraph 12 of Declan's updated complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

12. It is important to underscore that the discriminatory surveillance suffered by the Applicant and his wife is not an isolated event. Rather, it is emblematic of a larger pattern of surveillance by law enforcement officials in the UK that has been well-documented by international and domestic human rights bodies. For example, GCHQ's Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) specialises in the "4 D's": deny, disrupt, degrade, deceive. It has been branded by the press as the spy agency's "deception unit". Though its existence was secret until 2014, JTRIG has developed a distinctive profile in the public understanding, after documents from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed that the unit had engaged in "dirty tricks" like deploying sexual "honey traps" designed to discredit targets, launching denial-of-service attacks to shut down Internet chat rooms, pushing veiled propaganda onto social networks and generally warping discourse online. Previous reporting on GCHQ established its focus on what it regards as political radicalism. Beyond JTRIG's targeting of Anonymous, other parts of GCHQ targeted political activists and groups deemed to be "radical", even monitoring human rights NGOs. The President of the London-based Privacy International, Simon Davies, asks: "If spying on human rights NGOs isn't off limits for GCHQ, then what is?"

From a fascinating excerpt from Glenn Greenwald's book "No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State":

All of the evidence highlights the implicit bargain that is offered to citizens: pose no challenge and you have nothing to worry about. Mind your own business, and support or at least tolerate what we do, and you'll be fine. Put differently, you must refrain from provoking the authority that wields surveillance powers if you wish to be deemed free of wrongdoing.

Complaint to the Secretary of State for Justice. We still do not have District Judge Avent's order and today is the 2nd day after the expiration of our statutory 21 days to apply for permission to appeal (WITH UPDATE 16/3/2017)

From the Update (16/3/2017) below:

County Court at Central London, Royal Courts of Justice

This court order we are waiting for from the Central London County Court is our No.1 indicator of how vulnerable we are. Declan phoned the Court again on Monday, only to be told that District Judge Avent's order dismissing his claim against the Greater London Authority ("GLA")-commissioned St Mungo's that alleged the falsification and fabrication of data against him (leaving us vulnerable to eviction) was placed on the record last Saturday and was being posted. Our statutory 21 days to apply for permission to appeal expired three days ago on Monday. This was Declan's complaint to Elizabeth Truss as Secretary of State for Justice last Wednesday:

For the attention of Neelam Ahuja, Customer Service Manager, Central London County Court

Rt Hon Elizabeth Truss MP
Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor
Ministry of Justice

Address removed for email


8 March 2017

Dear Secretary of State for Justice,

Central London County Court Case No. C01CL855

I wish to complain that District Judge Avent's order dismissing my claim against the Greater London Authority ("GLA")-commissioned St Mungo's that alleged the falsification and fabrication of data against me has not yet been placed on the record, according to the Court this morning; and this, notwithstanding that the 21 days I have to appeal expires on this coming Monday, 13 March 2017.

Please see below a finding by the Information Commissioner's Office that the Ministry of Justice breached the Data Protection Act 1998 in respect of an application to contest the court's jurisdiction that was filed by the GLA at Central London County Court on 14 October 2015 in another unrelated case.

I am copying this email to Neelam Ahuja, Customer Service Manager at the court. My telephone number is 0788 043 7681.

Yours sincerely,

Declan Heavey
Managing Director
Network for Church Monitoring

A copy of the original of the complaint above, together with the finding of the Information Commissioner's Office against the Ministry of Justice in respect of the timely disclosure of a previous court document, is posted here. Are we going to need this time around a court order from the Central London County Court to get a copy of District Judge Avent's order?

Re: Ministry of Justice's untimely disclosure of court document

Draft paragraph 37(ii) of Declan's next updated complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

On 16 December 2015 the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) upheld the Applicant's complaint against the Ministry of Justice for breach of the Data Protection Act 1998. The ICO found that the Ministry had mishandled the Applicant's subject access request for a copy of the GLA's application to contest the court's jurisdiction, filed at the Central London County Court on 14 October 2015 (see Annex 18, pp. 45-46).

UPDATE 16 March (10.05pm): We have the court order! We received it in a late post yesterday. The order is outrageous. No reason for the dismissal of Declan's claim is provided. The order states, "The Claim is dismissed," and then only states, "The Claimant's oral application for leave to appeal is refused." Of course, even if he wanted to, the judge couldn't declare the claim "totally without merit" because Declan defeated St Mungo's attempt to have the claim struck out at the preliminary hearing last October (before another judge). Although this court order is undoubtedly our No.1 indicator of how vulnerable we are, we are supremely confident that St Mungo's run the risk of compromising the court's integrity and independence by trying to make anything of it. Tonight Don Collins, President of the Washington, DC-based International Services Assistance Fund, writes, "How you manage to do what you do is simply amazing!! And with the pressure on to adjudicate what seems more and more like attacks from a personality from 1984!" This morning I posted the order to my blog post of 20 February below.

Royal Mail: What will it take to get our employment contracts past Royal Mail to the United States? (WITH UPDATE 13/3/2017)

Click to enlarge

Without signed employment contracts, Newham Council could terminate our Housing Benefit for want of valid proofs of employment. Legally we are covered with scanned signatures but it is completely unacceptable that we cannot get hardcopies of our new employment contracts past Royal Mail to the United States. According to Royal Mail Customer Services this evening (Royal Mail complaint no. 1-3818238525), our International Tracked and Signed mailing item may have gone missing somewhere between our local post office (Terrace Road PO) and the collection office (Romford Mail Centre). So it didn't even make it up the road?

This was Declan's pre-action letter to Newham Council last month:

22 February: Now that Newham Council have de-suspended our Housing Benefit, what will it take to get the Council to acknowledge receipt of a change in our circumstances in the form of a pay rise?

UPDATE 13/3/2017 (11.15am): Proof of delivery has not come through. Nor is the collection office (Romford Mail Centre) showing on the track record as yet.
