COVID-1984 PCP UPDATE
After initially being told yesterday morning that we wouldn’t receive the judge’s decision [on whether to issue the arrest warrant] for another ten days, by the late afternoon he had already made up his mind and ruled as follows:
1. That he was satisfied that we have the authority to bring the private prosecution.
2. That he has the jurisdiction to decide the application.
3. That it is not a prosecution which can only be run by the CPS.
However, the judge did not agree that Hancock’s dishonesty is proven by his publicly documented failure to disclose to MPs [before they voted on the CV act] that CV had been reclassified as no longer being considered an airborne High Consequence Infectious Disease [HCID], or that the Imperial Model had been proven to be false.
Whilst the decision could easily be appealed, we have been advised by our legal team that we need to acquire more prima facie evidence of Hancock’s dishonest conduct before any judge will issue a warrant or a summons, which we expect to obtain within the next 28 days.
Nevertheless, our legal team has also advised us that the production of the very same evidence we are seeking to prove dishonest conduct will constitute sufficient prima facie evidence of a much more serious crime than fraud, as well as conclusive proof of the frauds we have already alleged.
In other words, we’ve been asked to provide the smoking gun from the crime scene, so that’s what is required to sustain the allegations.
Furthermore, don’t forget that the urgent action we took was taken in the absence of a formal criminal investigation, while our legal team prepared their initial advice on how the PCP should proceed, after assessing the myriad of criminal allegations, to guarantee the greatest chance of success.
Now we have received that advice, we have agreed that the information in the main part of the case against Hancock et al will be laid in the criminal court, as soon as we have obtained the prima facie evidence that would remove all possibility of reasonable doubt in the minds of a jury, when [and not if] the PCP moves to the trial stage. All being well, we will have that evidence by 22/12/2020 at the latest.
Tomorrow afternoon, we are due to speak with our legal team and there will be a further update soon afterwards, laying out how the case will proceed, now that we have established the evidence threshold that needs to be met, given that nobody else has ever brought such a private criminal prosecution against a serving cabinet minister before, let alone had one arrested.
In the meantime, rest assured that, whatever the establishment throws at us, be it in whatever form it comes, the PCP is moving forward, with or without a warrant being issued to prevent further crimes being committed…
