Part 1: City of London Police - threatened with arrest on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer

[Final email from the City of London Police Professional Standards Directorate to be posted]

Paragraph 34 of Declan's updated complaint to the United Nations

34. Both the Applicant and his wife are deeply concerned that the accommodation blockade through surveillance that they have experienced in London and in Brighton for near on two years has now been extended to beyond the close of the WLCHC winter night shelters on 13 April 2014; especially as the Applicant has been diagnosed with asthma, which is a chronic, or life long, disease that can be serious – even life threatening. This situation is exacerbated by the Applicant and his wife having no choice but to spend their nights sleeping in night buses since 23 April 2014, the Applicant’s wife having been threatened the night before by two City of London Police officers with an arrest on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer (see Annex 27, City of London Police: Police complaint, pp. 71-72). The following is an extract from the Applicant’s wife’s N4CM blog of 23 April under the title, “Barbican security guard calls the Police to have us removed... and I am threatened with an arrest on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer” (this blog contains a photograph of the Applicant packing his bags with one of the police officers clearly visible in the foreground):

Last night a Barbican security guard called the police as we were bedding down, and PC 667CP and PC 602CP from Bishopsgate Police Station were on us in minutes. They threatened to dump our belongings onto the street if we didn't move immediately, which then became they were going to come down later with street cleaners to hose us out, which then became two female officers were going to arrest me later on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer. (I straight away thought of an article I read a couple of weeks ago about a gang of Romanian rough sleepers who terrorised residents, tourists and shopkeepers for two years around Marble Arch, one of the capital’s best known and most central landmarks, because the police could do nothing about them.) We eventually decided to spend the night in King's Cross train station rather than risk my arrest on such a serious trumped-up charge and today have come to the conclusion that we have no choice now but to spend our nights sleeping in night buses until the Single Homeless Project comes through with their offer of a flat, first tabled on 21 January.

From paragraph 38 of Declan's updated complaint to the United Nations

38. ... The Applicant has also amassed irrefutable evidence relating to the sabotage of his and his wife’s mail, including the non-delivery of registered items. In the case of Heavey v Haringey Council (see paragraph 24(1) above), the Applicant was denied an oral hearing which he otherwise would have been entitled to had he received an order from the Court when it was sent to him. Subsequently, the Applicant’s application for an order extending time for renewing his application for permission to apply for judicial review to an oral hearing and for the file of his claim to be re-opened was refused by Mitting J (see Annex 12, Haringey Council: Order by High Court Judge Mitting, p. 35). ...
