Secret court jails gran who hugged her granddaughter

Pensioner sentenced to three months after disobeying order she should not see the teenager

  • Kathleen Danby, 72, jailed for three months by secretive Court of Protection
  • She had been banned from contacting girl, 18, who has learning difficulties
  • Was told she could speak to her once a month, but met her at railway exhibit
  • Also shown on CCTV hugging the teenager outside a pub
  • Judge Martin Cardinal said the CCTV showed Mrs Danby was in contempt
  • Grandmother refuses to attend court, and says she will not go to prison

A grandmother has been sentenced to three months in prison after she was filmed giving her granddaughter a hug.
Kathleen Danby, 72, was jailed by the secretive Court of Protection, which decided she had disobeyed its order that she should not see the teenager.
Under a draconian judgment kept secret from the public, Mrs Danby had been banned from making contact with the girl, who is 18 but has learning difficulties.
Ban: Kathleen Danby, 72, has been sentenced to three months in prison after she was filmed giving her granddaughter a hug after disobeying an order she should not see the 18-year-old
Ban: Kathleen Danby, 72, has been sentenced to three months in prison after she was filmed giving her granddaughter a hug after disobeying an order she should not see the 18-year-old
She was told she could only speak to her on the phone once a month at a set time, with social workers listening in. Mrs Danby was ordered back to court when social workers heard that she had met the girl at a model railway exhibition. Police also presented CCTV footage of her hugging her granddaughter outside a pub.
Mrs Danby was not at the hearing in Birmingham in April to give her version of events but Judge Martin Cardinal said the CCTV showed she was in contempt. He ordered that she be jailed for three months and issued a warrant for her arrest.
 
However Mrs Danby, who lives in Orkney, said yesterday that no police officers had arrived to execute the warrant. ‘I haven’t been jailed simply because I refused to go down there to court,’ she said, adding that she would refuse to go to prison simply for making contact with her granddaughter.
Ruling: Judge Martin Cardinal said the CCTV showed Mrs Danby was in contempt
Ruling: Judge Martin Cardinal said the CCTV showed Mrs Danby was in contempt
‘She is 18 and can decide for herself what she wants to do, she is being denied her human rights,’ Mrs Danby said. ‘She has the educational standards of somebody half her age, and behaves like a much younger child, but she is completely lucid in what she wants.’
Mrs Danby said the girl was moved into care in Derbyshire in 2007, when she was 11, a year after being removed from her father in Orkney.  He was banned from seeing her after he was convicted for ill-treatment for restraining her from running into a busy road while she was having a temper tantrum, Mrs Danby said.
She said it was a ‘spurious excuse’, adding: ‘Social services completely cut off contact which was of course cruel to her in the extreme.’ The girl’s father has been jailed twice for trying to contact her – once for waving at her taxi as she travelled to school – she said.
The teenager was in the care home against her will and had run away 175 times, Mrs Danby said.

'This is remarkable to see. A real grass roots campaign is forming' - Tom Watson

33 MP'S (the magic number in Freemasonry) ARE BACKING THE CALL FOR AN INQUIRY INTO 'HISTORIC VIP' INSTITUTIONALISED CHILD ABUSE (and snuff... don't forget the Belgian child snuff tapes!)

http://www.exaronews.com/articles/5281/david-cameron-pressed-at-pmqs-on-inquiry-into-child-sex-abuse

Im not having a moan, but this should have been done in late 2012 (well... the early 80's really... I wasn't even born)

WE WANT SOCA AND NCA HEADING A NATIONAL INVESTIGATION!

INVESTIGATIONG ANYONE THAT THEY HAVE EVIDENCE AGAINST!!! (Parliament, MP's, Lords, MI5, Social workers, lawyers)... we want GCHQ on board, ERADICATING online child pornography, and providing evidence of those who use it, and produce it (EVERYONE NOW KNOWS THEY HAVE THE MEANS AND RESOURCES TO DO SO!!!)

The picture becomes a lot clearer if you look at the context.
Loving Grandma gives her granddaughter a hug. Sorry two hugs = 3 months in jail. Nothing heavy-handed or cruel and unusual there. No over-reaction of any sort. Lock her up!

However if you are a man and do this to a little girl...
*four indecent assaults +
*four gross indecencies +
*four sexual assaults +
*four charges of inciting a youngster aged under-13 to engage in sexual activity...?

Well you can have a suspended sentence.

In March 2012 David Reed was convicted of sexually abusing a youngster has been handed a suspended jail term. He denied wrongdoing but a jury found he abused the girl when she was aged between five and eight. Reed was found guilty of four indecent assaults, four gross indecencies, four sexual assaults and four charges of inciting a youngster aged under-13 to engage in sexual activity.

Nothing to see here now. Move along.

Evening All.

No Judge Cardinal the contempt is levelled directly at you for this unforgivably stupid not to mention perverse decision. Welfare Services again using Gestapo tactics. You're all in it together!

We have a public inquiry into 'The Jersey House of Horrors'.

''An inquiry panel investigating allegations of historic child abuse in Jersey's care system has set a date for its first hearing.

The year-long £6m inquiry will probe reports of abuse in the island's children's homes and fostering services from 1960 to the present day.

Screens have been erected in Seaton Place, where the inquiry will be held, to protect witnesses' identities.

The preliminary hearing will take place on Monday 16 June at 14:00 BST.''

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-jersey-27798875

''The first public hearing of Jersey's independent inquiry into historical child abuse will take place on Monday.

The panel says it is mainly to deal with legal and procedural matters, but islanders will be allowed in to watch.

It will take place at the Seaton Place headquarters in St Helier at 2pm.

Full details of everything that was dealt with will be placed on the inquiry website and social media.

The inquiry team continues to appeal to anyone with information or experience that might be relevant to contact them on:

Jersey/ UK: 0800 735 0100

Im sure former Jersey detective and whistleblower Lenny 'I served in Northern Irleand.. Why would I be intimidated by these people?' Harper will be taking note (if not attending, and giving evidence on EVERYTHING he discovered in 2008)

Jersey - Haut de la Garron (Jersey House of Horrors)... SATANIC child abuse and murder dating back possibly to Victorian times (1960's at least)... Former Prime Minister Edward Heath use to 'procure' boys from the home, take them aboard his yacht where he would rape, strangle and then throw them overboard (Victor Rothschild and MI5 then blackmailed him)... the late Jimmy Saville was involved.

Have they really got no other worse crimes they need to be addressing than trying to stop the natural characteristics of humanity? Surely their time would be better directed at the real crimes needing court time. What a waste of tax payers money. Everyone needs a hug it's not a crime - even if their is a court order banning it, it's what humans do for god's sake.
If you ask me the judge is insane or psychopathic being devoid of all concept of human emotion, he's the one that needs locking away - he's a threat to society

Please move along. Nothing to see here. You're all making a fuss. Just making it worser. The old huggy biddy couldn't take a telling from a junior social worker (who doesn't actually have any children or grandchildren). Old huggy granny needed to be told who is in control. Nice clear message.

If the Social Work Department lose control God knows where it all might end.

Another dual national paedophile handing out ludicrous sentences behind closed doors.

Is this what those lads fought and died for on the beaches of Normandy 70 yrs ago?

When a government behaves in this way, and let's not forget the unprovoked invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and the chaos in Syria - resulting in the deaths of 100,000's of people - they have become a 'rogue state', acting in a way contrary to the wishes of the people, oppressing the people.

We no longer have to co-operate with them, just as many citizens did not co-operate with the regimes of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Yes, I think the situation is that bad. They have murdered 100,000's of people, people's rights and civil liberties are being eroded more and more every day. Where is this all leading? Somewhere very bad, I suspect.

In light of this, we no longer have a duty to obey our government, as they are now nothing more than a criminal cabal, controlled by traitorous external forces who seek our destruction and, so it appears, the destruction of Western civilisation, the ending of Bible-based CHRISTIAN values everywhere - which is exactly where our values come from and not from Pagan humanism, which is what they would have you believe.

The government has abrogated it responsibilities, it is no longer serving the purpose for which is was instituted and the duties for which taxpayers pay them, to do to what we expect from them, which should be nothing more than an administrative role in OUR society, as public servants.

This non-sense about the 'unwritten constitution' in Britain is just a total SCAM..! Yet, most refuse to see this and are very happy simply to tune-in to the soothing messages delivered by the state broadcaster and forget that the wider world and what governments do is of great importance to us all.

Francis Schaefer wrote, in his book 'A Christian Manifesto' that populations have been placated with (i) personal peace (ii) affluence, and as a result, if the problems of the world leave us alone, we just don't care what goes on beyond our private existence.

We need a Republic, a government of laws, laws which the government has to obey as well!
In a democracy(Plato's 'enlightened democracy') dictatorial governments are voted in, who can then do precisely anything they like; there is nothing to govern their conduct, they make the rules and decide good from evil, right from wrong.

Francis Schaeffer: "We must understand something very thoroughly. If society — if the state gives the rights, it can take them away — they're not inalienable. If the states give the rights, they can change them and manipulate them. But this was not the view of the founding fathers of [the USA]. They believed, although not all of them were individual Christians, that there was a Creator and that this Creator gave the inalienable rights.."
