Belinda McKenzie and I got this letter with a long list of bullet points from Eleanor Plowden, the Senior Planning Producer of the Victoria Derbyshire programme that interviewed RD, the father. My responses are the indented bullet points, as we expect the father to be given custody of his children – as Ian Josephs has been predicting for decades: Why Ian Josephs advises mothers NOT to report crimes of abusive fathers: you lose your children…
“We anticipate the following points, which arise from the judgement, will be made in our programme and would like to ask you for your response:
Custody Battle? No: Residence Order!
1. You and your former partnerhave been involved in a long-running dispute over custody of your children.
- No, the issues were domestic violence rather than custody, as Ella had a Residence Order in place and two Non-Molestation Orders. Our Application for a Non-Molestation Order was ignored by both Judge Mayer and Judge Pauffley.
2. You and Mr Christie have not participated by being present in the court – your absence was deliberate.
- Ella had nine Police in plain clothes outside her door, without an arrest warrant. Harriet Harman MP said in 2006 in Parliament that 200 parents a year are imprisoned by secret family courts.
- Prison is NOT a place from where you can succeed having contact with your children, let along getting them back, as we saw with Melissa Laird, victim of the same Council and the same judge Mayer. As McKenzie Friends, we have seen enough examples. That’s why I fled before Ella did.
- As can be seen from the Police report, a ‘strategy meeting’ was held on 09.09.14 and set up Mr Christie as the scapegoat and fall guy. Ella was to be declared ‘mentally unstable’.
The Online Phenomenon
3. You and other people supporting your case have posted material relating to your children, this case, and allegations of abuse, on the internet and social media. By 10 March 2015 more than 4 million people worldwide had viewed online materialrelating to this case. The Judgement states that it is inevitable that a large proportion of those have a sexual interest in children.
- The 4 million estimate is based on which research? One of the blogger’s profiles had 27 million views!
- What is Mrs Justice Pauffley’s speculation based on “that it is inevitable that … have a sexual interest in children?” Why does she even think that?
- Why would so many cover-ups by internet corporations be carried out, if everything was prim, proper and just?
4. Material continued to be posted on the internet up until publication of the Judgement.
- Material continues to be posted, and nobody can know everything that is being posted.
- As long as the children are in ‘care’ or given to the father, there will be public outcries. See Why Cult Leader Dearman should never see his children again.
- The mainstream media don’t listen and there are gagging orders in place for that purpose. Hence the internet is the only option for victim parents, grandparents such as Ella as well as abuse survivors as the children. The common cause is the secrecy of family courts.
- In this case, it is used to cover-up criminal activities.
- Please note BBC news: Adoptions: Thousands of children forcibly taken into care and our submission Systemic Patterns of Child Snatching and Forced Adoptions in the UK to the Petitions Committee of the EU Parliament since 19 March 2014.
5. False allegations continue to be made on social media websites.
- If the children had been listened to by Judge Mayer, none of the current escalation would have happened! Why did she transfer jurisdiction to her High Court colleague?
- If Mrs Justice Pauffley had listened to the children, they would have been returned and their trauma would have lessened. Instead, a spiritual battle is evolving asking people which side they are on: the children’s and mother’s or the father’s.
6. Claims have been made about the children’s father, former head teacher and other teachers, professionals and parents at the former school.
- These claims should have been investigated, especially the distinguishing marks. Over 1,800 supporters of this petition are still asking for it.
- Did it not occur to you to ask Mr Dearman for his tattoos?
- If you look at the online evidence of these alleged abusers, you will be surprised: Videos by Hampstead Research, e.g. 1: Connections between Abusers Online: 3: Teachers, 4: Churches, 17: Dearman – child pornographer?
7. Many of these individuals are now living in fear having been identified on the internet as abusers of children.
- If UK Authorities had acted properly, they should have been investigated and tried by now!
- According to EU Directives you acted lawfully, and the UK Authorities did not.
8. Police have had to protect parents and children at the school.
- Only because they are all in it together. After all, the children named 16 Police stations / constables.
9. The Judgement states that those responsible for posting the material derive a good deal of personal satisfaction from attracting interest to their “spiteful work”
- I don’t. I wish I didn’t have to do what I’m doing. But knowing what I know and NOT acting on it, is not possible for me.
The Gory Details of Satanic Rituals
10. Allegations and suggestions have been made that P and Q were part of a large group of children from north London who had been sexually abused, made to abuse one another and that they had belonged to a satanic cult in which there was significant paedophile activity. Babies were supplied from all over the world. They were bought, injected with drugs and then sent by TNT or DHL to London. The assertions were that babies had been abused, tortured and then sacrificed. Their throats were slit, blood was drunk and cult members would then dance wearing babies’ skulls (sometimes with blood and hair still attached) on their bodies. All the cult members wore shoes made of baby skin produced by the owner of a specified shoe repair shop. Itwas alleged that children would be anally abused by adult members of the cult using plastic penises or “willies.”
- If you think that such practices are too outrageous to be imagined and believed, start googling and talking to Satanic abuse survivors who have become experts. The similarities are outstanding. Eg. Listen to the Children! Beatrix Campbell on Channel IV in 1990 and this extract from Organised Sexual Abuse by Michael Salter (2013).
The Judge judges the global internet community and the BBC the mother and partner
11. The Judgement found that none of the allegations were true, and the judge stated that everything you and your partner Abraham Christie and the children said about those matters was fabricated, and that the claims are baseless. The judge further stated that those who have sought to perpetuate them are evil and / or foolish.
- Strange that I have seen at least the same evidence as the judge and I come to different conclusions. What do you think is the difference between a systems analyst and a High Court judge? I reckon it’s “emotional intelligence.”
12. Years of conflict over the issue of contact your antipathy for Mr Dearman provided fertile territory for the creation of false allegations and their reiteration by the children
- No, no. The father chose not to see the children for over 2 years. To put the children’s testimonies away as ‘false allegations’ is in my view preposterous.
13. P and Q were forced by you and Mr Christie to provide concocted accounts of horrific events.
- P and Q were ‘forced’ to break the ‘deal’ they had with their father not to talk, under the threat of being killed! The daughter said on video “Police don’t help. They know that we talked. He’s going to come and kill us.” Foster parents reported that the children had nightmares, for fear of being killed.
14. The stories came about as the result of relentless emotional and psychological pressure as well as significant physical abuse. The judge describedthe treatment of the children by you and Mr Christie as “torture”.
- What verbal exaggerations…
15. In sessions with you and Mr Christie, the children were effectively persecutedso as to compel them to tell false stories
- What a speculation…
16. You and Mr Christie made the children take part in filmed mobile phone recordings in which they relayed fabricated satanic practices
- What makes you NOT believe the children, I wonder? Did you watch all of the videos?
17. In two police interviews they repeated allegations similar in content to the mobile recordings.
- Yes, the consistency between the children talking separately and independently to different adults at different times over weeks proves the veracity of their allegations.
18. In a third interview both children withdrew their allegations, and stated they had been made to say things by Abraham Christie which were not true.
- This interview was made six days after the children had been in care. See these comments on the internet:
19. Your absence from the fact finding proceedings in court was deliberate.
- It was unfortunate, since secret family courts turn ‘evidence’ into ‘facts’, when it not opposed. We’ve seen this with what was the worst case, until this one came along: the Nigerian couple whose seven children were taken and who were sentenced to seven years in prison. The mother was in HMP Holloway, in the cell adjacent to US Melissa Laird.
Legitimising the Secrecy of Family Courts?
20. The internet campaign has continued, despite injunctions restraining you from publishing information from the proceedings on the internet or elsewhere.
- You don’t know what the mother has published. The Penal Order was against the mother and myself as if we were co-ordinating our online activities. My application to set it aside was supposed to be heard today. So far, I have not had a response to my request for an adjournment or communication via skype.
- The restraining aka gagging orders are part of the problem, not a solution, to operate in the best interest of children, when 1,000 a children are taken a month, or 1 every 20 minutes, as Channel IV publishes.
- See also The untold story of gagging orders in the Independent.
21. You have been prepared to campaign using the internet but were not willing to take part in the inquiry.
- Why this accusatory implication? Ella had been part of the inquiry, together with me and Belinda McKenzie until the hearing on 26 January 2015. Then it was clear to both Ella and Belinda that the judge had no intention to return the children. She had ignored the mother’s issues in this Position Statement which contained the ‘thinly veiled threat’ of online exposure.
22. P and Q have sufferedsignificantly andwere made to absorb and repeat claims against blameless people including their father.
- They were made to absorb lies that they themselves are supposed to have made. That’s betrayal.
23. Physical injuries described by the children were caused by Mr Christie.
- Hardly in the anal area. See Leaked medical reports end all doubts about sexual abuse claims.
- Once again, the cover-up adds to the veracity of the original claim: Barnet Council found a psychiatrist to discredit the medical doctor!
24. Mr Christie, your partner has a background of criminality for drugs offences, violence and dishonesty – and recently received a police caution for assaulting his son
- This has NOTHING to do with the CHILDREN’s allegations!
More allegations instead of Listening to the Children?
25. There is good evidence that the children ingested cannabis in the three months before going into care. The judgement states it may have been part of your and Mr Christie’s plans as to gain the children’s compliance
- Why this allegation? Do you know the difference between cannabis and hemp?
- Hemp juice is available from Holland & Barretts. The hair sample test results show significantly more cannabis during the school period from March till the end of June than during the holiday months and since Mr Christie came on the scene in June.
26. The posting of film clips featuring the children speaking about sexual matters has exposed P and Q to the potential for very serious embarrassment and humiliation in the years ahead and maybe through the whole of the rest of their lives.
- It would be kinder to worry about the PRESENT state of the children and deal with their separation from their family, the inequality of contact between father (weekly) and mother (originally fortnightly), how the grandparents saw them and the reasons for Barnet Council still keeping them under their control after seven months!
Turning Fictions into Facts: methinks, you protesteth too much…
27. Neither child has been sexually abused by any of the following – Ricky Dearman, teachers at their former school, the parents of students at that school, the priest at the adjacent church, teachers at any schools, members of the Metropolitan Police, social workers employed by the London Borough of Camden, officers of Cafcass or anyone else mentioned by Ms Draper or Mr Christie.
- And because Mrs Justice Pauflly said so, it must be true?
28. There was no satanic or other cult at which babies were murdered and children were sexually abused.
29. All of the material promulgated by you now published on the internet is utter nonsense.
- Everybody is entitled to their opinions.
30. The children’s false stories came about as the result of relentless emotional and psychological pressure as well as significant physical abuse. “Torture” is the mostaccurate way to describe what was done by you in collaboration with Mr Christie in collaboration with you.
- Why were the torturers named by the children not investigated?
31, Both children were assaulted by Mr Christie by being hit with a metal spoon on multiple occasions over their head and legs, by being pushed into walls, punched, pinched and kicked. Water was poured over them as they knelt semi-clothed.
- Great exaggeration. They always only accused the father and his associates. Never the mother. And they explicitly said that Abraham does NOT do ‘it’.
32. The long term emotional and psychological harm of what was done to the children is incalculable. The impact of the internet campaign is likely to have the most devastating consequence for P and Q.
- The internet campaign is the only chance to ever get these and other children back to where they belong.
33. There are rumours you have fled abroad. You have not been seen by anyone in authority since 12 February 2012, nor communicated with the court or local authority since 17th. Nor have you had contact with or made any inquiry about the children.
- How can she, when the only reason behind this is the desire to put her behind bars?
- That’s how the Nigerian Musas were put behind bars: in a secret family court…
