As we await the coming Napier Report i thought i would put up the Terms of Reference again.

Also, will Brian Napier dare criticize the Law Office

Everyone is getting advise when it comes to Graham Powers suspension




Le Marquand

Everyone is getting advice from the Law Office. Who are these people who are never named but are behind all the huge decisions.

What we cant have with Napier is the old line " We will learn and move on "


A Chief of Police has been suspended and treated no better than a criminal although some would say a criminal would have a chance of clearing their name.

He was suspended in a hurry on the 12th November 2008


It was in the middle of a Huge Child Abuse Investigation

They would have got this one right ?

We will see.

I have been at this for a long time and the Napier Report could well be the end for me. If it gives the above characters a clean bill of health then i believe i am done as far as my blog goes.

If he is critical then i carry on. We are in a terrible mess , from top to bottom the Island is rotten.

What will be will be concerning the financial future of Jersey, I think this Island needs a serious dose of Hardship or a miracle in leadership.

I believe Graham Power was removed from office so the Child Abuse Investigation could be closed down.

Was it a Political Coup

If not, the Napier Report will clear all the people i have mentioned on my blog concerning this.

If he is Critical, then make no mistake we are looking at corruption of the most serious kind





Come on lets have Napier

A review of the management process that led to the suspension of the
Chief Officer of Police

1. Commissioner

The Chief Minister wishes to appoint a Commissioner to undertake a review
of the manner in which the Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police was
suspended from his duties on 12th November 2008. Given the length of time
that has elapsed since the Chief Officer of Police was suspended, and the
concerns raised by States Members particularly following the publication of
the Affidavit from the suspended Chief Officer of Police, the Chief Minister is
proposing to commission an independent review to assure himself and States
Members that the management of the process was conducted correctly.

2. Terms of Reference

The purpose of the Review is to –

(a) Examine the procedure employed by the Chief Minister’s Department
and the Minister for Home Affairs in the period leading up to the
suspension of the Chief Officer of Police on 12th November 2008.

(b) Review the manner in which senior officers collated the information
and presented it to the Minister for Home Affairs that ultimately led to
the suspension of the Chief Officer of Police.

(c) Investigate whether the procedure for dealing with the original
suspension was correctly followed at all times, including –

(i) the reason for the immediate suspension of the Chief Officer
of Police;

(ii) whether there were any procedural errors in managing the
suspension process.

(d) Review all information relating to the original suspension procedure,
including relevant sections of the published Affidavit from the
suspended Chief Officer of Police.

(e) The Report should highlight any areas where, in the opinion of the
Commissioner, sufficient evidence exists that would support in the
interests of open government a full Committee of Inquiry into the
manner in which the Chief Officer of Police was suspended on
12th November 2008.

3. Report

A Report should be prepared for the Chief Minister. The Commissioner must
be aware that the entire disciplinary process for the Chief Officer of Police is
conducted under his Terms and Conditions of Employment, which include a
Code of Conduct for Disciplinary Process. This Code requires confidentiality
to be maintained by all parties throughout the disciplinary process. As such,
the report should therefore be in 2 parts –

(i) Part I should consist of matters appropriate for immediate publication
to States Members and the Public;

(ii) Part II relating to those matters specific to the Chief Officer of Police
which under his Code of Conduct have to remain confidential until the
disciplinary process has been completed.

Warcup IS a Mason - surprise, surprise! But, by all accounts Brian Napier is a highly qualified and respected QC, and very experienced in the employment law area.

I cannot see him putting his reputation on the line when the whole Power affair was handled so appallingly. We can only hope and pray for once we get a totally honest report that tells it like it is.

I think we will.

I do not think I have read such a load of rubbish in ages. Graham Power is an employee not a law upon himself but an employee. The Napier Report is not the smoking gun you are looking for. Its been completed and rumour has it there is nothing corrupt about the suspension. No wonder people want you out of a job because you are a serious trouble maker with an obsession for the worst scenario and attacks on people who have families. One day you, Neil, Ian and Stuart will realise that you cannot go around making up things up to suit you own alto egos. You deserve to be taught a lesson for some of the lies about people you have said to date. This isn't truth seeking this is cyber insult.

Amazing how courageous people get behind a computer screen. I doubt those people are so brave in their real lives.
It’s very rare people will say such things to another person’s face. It makes me sad to think how unhappy they are in their lives that they must spew such hatred online.
Ironically I feel sorry for them that they lead such sad lives.

There cant be any problems with the "Napier Report" because every tom,dick and harry have said they were getting Legal Advice.

This Suspension above all overs should be whiter than white & squeaky clean.

No problem with destroying notes

No problem with the dates not matching up

No problem with no procedures being followed

No problem with no warning for the Chief of Police

No problem with fighting for the dates of the suspension letters for over a year and then explaining what " Information" means to our crap chief minister.

No problem with waiting for him to take 5 days leave then go for a suspension

No problem with using the "The Met Interim Report" to give their suspension some teeth because the rest of it was a joke

No problem with a Deputy Police Chief who new said report should never be used in a suspension procedure

No problem for the Deputy Police Chief to require an Interim report that was not yet completed from that chap in the Met

That Chap in the Met is himself being investigated for sending that report,he had not yet even interviewed Harper or Baker

No problem with saying that he would have a proper and fair chance in defending himself ( Andrew Lewis)

No problems anywhere, Brian Napier will give this a clean bill of health.

This is Jersey this is how we do business.

Haper & Power ( not how we do business)

How did the Beast of Jersey roam around this Island for 10yrs molesting children.

Andrew Lewis. "I took full legal and HR advice from highly competent professionals and followed the prescribed procedure of the day."

That is why you will be closing down after the napier report is released. They have you banged to rights so back off. My contacts in the Law Office tells me its nothing and all procedures were followed to the letter.

Who reads your blog anyway. Who leaves comments on your blog, back away its dangerous i,m only protecting you, it was Syvret who framed Roger Rabbit, stay away from him he is being sued and then sued again.

I know him, now i don't know him, I will message him, you cant talk to him because he is Dead, i mean it Rico Sordid give it up stop blogging these people are dangerous. You really do love Syvret don't you go on admit it ok then don't but i mean it back away.

Great then I stop blogging very soon. I should say blogging on political matters that is, but, might slip the odd one in.

Im growing very tired of how this Island is run and where it is going, why should I care what those lunatics in the states get up too.

My fight has always been on the Child Abuse scandal

I have seen enough in these past 2 years or so to know that in 10 or 20 years time we could well have another scandal. I have witnessed enough disinterest from states members, media & general public to know this can happen again. Yes, politicians can say the right things in the states but this lot are prepared to let their hatred of Power, Harper & Syvret come before the children of child abuse.

Syvret was pushed from office because he said our child protection system was failing, this was bad for moral, so they sacked him.

How did they do this

Passed it through the states of jersey. ( be afraid )

There is so much that saddens me on this subject.

Being Attacked is part of the business

Firstly, it has been admitted that the Chief Executive destroyed the original record of
the suspension meeting.

Secondly, the Royal Court in a judgement given on 8th September 2009 expressed its
“serious concern at the fairness of the procedure apparently adopted by the Previous
Minister. He was dealing with the person holding the most senior position in the
police force who had enjoyed a long and distinguished career. Bearing in mind the
implications of suspension, we would have thought that fairness would dictate firstly
Mr. Power being given a copy of the media briefing and Mr. Warcup’s letter and
secondly an opportunity to be heard on whether there should be an investigation and,
if so, whether he should be suspended during that investigation.” (Judgement
paragraph 19.) In considering the implications of the Royal Court judgement members
may have been misled by a statement which sought to imply that the Court had in
some way found that the current Minister was “right” in maintaining the suspension.
In a Judicial Review a Court will determine whether a Minister acted lawfully and
within his powers. One test of this is “procedural fairness.” Courts do not pass
judgement on the wisdom or cost-effectiveness of Ministerial decisions, only their
legality. Thus the Court found that “the procedure adopted by the Minister in
conducting his review was procedurally fair, in contrast we have to say, to the
procedure apparently adopted by his predecessor in November 2008,” (paragraph 63.)
Having considered all of the evidence the Court finally concluded that “there has been
no abuse of the Ministers powers,” (paragraph 65.) It is suggested that members do
not become distracted by the decision of the Court in the Judicial Review. This
proposition is about the actions of the then Minister and others in November 2008 and
what may have been done subsequently to conceal the truth of those events.

Anonymous said...


Don't forget this

The Chief Minister is of the opinion that conducting a review as outlined in his Terms
of Reference will be a much quicker and simpler process than that required in the
formation of a Committee of Inquiry, but still provides the level of assurance
Members are looking for.

Members will note however, that the Terms of Reference proposed by the Chief
Minister contain a specific clause that asks the Reviewer to establish whether there are
grounds for a full Committee of Inquiry. Should this be confirmed, the Chief Minister
commits to bringing back to the Assembly a Proposition for a Committee of Inquiry,
and for the appointment of a panel of members through a formal advertising and
selection process in line with best practice.

Will Napier suggest a Committee of Inquiry? if so you will be logging for some time yet

This is from the SS Blog and is a brilliant comment because it shows just how crazy things are over here at the moment.

Poor old Baker, is it a Good Cop or a Bad Cop, or a Cop for all occasions.
I could not get to Court today Stuart, but driving home this afternoon I heard on the news the questioning of Inspector Gary Pashley by Stephen Baker on the illegal raid on the home you shared with Deputy Labey.

It appears Mr Pashley did not think TEN officers raiding your home when you were alone was excessive! or the actions taken were a step to far. No doubt Mr Baker was delighted with this response.

However, could this be the same Inspector Pashley (and forgive me if I am mistaken) who was involved with the illegal surveillance and bugging operation concerning Curtis Warren and of whom the trial judge said:-

'In what Judge Sir Richard Tucker described as a "reprehensible" and "unlawful" act, senior police in Jersey, which has not signed up to the ECHR, bugged the car anyway'.

Could this be the same Police Force who mounted this operation without the knowledge of the then Chief of Police, Graham Power and of which the following was said:-

'JERSEY police ‘conspired to pervert the course of justice’ and are ‘liars and cheats’, the jury in the £1m drugs conspiracy trial were told yesterday'.

And...surely it could not be the same Stephen Baker who had this to say of those same officers:-

'As the trial draws to a close, defence advocate Stephen Baker warned the jury that they were entering ‘a murky world’ where the police ‘lie and cheat’.

Warren's defence suggested it was "a noble cause for corruption" and used it, in arguments put to the jury, to claim the police officers were unreliable witnesses

Advocate Baker also criticised Jersey police saying: "You can't rely on this crown case, on these police officers.

"They're liars, they're cheats and they daren't even go into the witness box to tell you the truth," he told jurors'.

You really could not make this up!!

It is worth bearing in mind that when Stephen Baker or any advocate represents anybody in court, the words spoken are those of the defendant not the advocates views!

Have you not read 'The Law Society of Jersey Code of Conduct'

2. Standards

2) A member shall not permit integrity or professional standards to be compromised at the instance of the client or any third party.

19. Duty to assist Court

(2) A member shall not consciously deceive the Court or state facts to the Court which the member knows to be untrue.

What this means is that Baker cannot accuse the police generally, or a specific officer, of being corrupt if he knows it to be untrue - despite the instructions of his client.

Rico if stuart Syvret is found guilty. will you accept the verdict or will

The law of the land declares that you have a valid driving licence if you
drive a motor vehicle on a public road.

The law of the land declares that if you drive a motor vehicle on a public road you must have a current insurance policy in place.

If you defy these laws and you maimed or killed someone by driving an uninsured vehicle you could be charged with manslaughter.

Do you Rico have a current driving licence and insurance and if so why
if your answer were to be "Syvret will always be innocent" should he be exempt from the laws we each have to abide by.

By Lucy Mason

Deputy Carolyn Labey
PLANNING corruption on a grand scale involving civil servants, solicitors and at least one States Member has been ignored by police, it was alleged in court yesterday.

Deputy Carolyn Labey claimed that she had evidence that a ‘network’ of individuals had been involved in making corrupt planning decisions relating to rezoned land.

She also claimed that she had been ‘bullied and harassed’ by a ‘couple’ of her fellow States Members after becoming suspicious about a number of decisions that were made.

And, she said in the Magistrate’s Court, the police had failed to look into her concerns effectively.

Giving evidence on the third day of an abuse of process hearing initiated by her ex-partner, former Senator Stuart Syvret, Deputy Labey said her research had led to conclusions ‘outside of the political ground and into that of the police’.

Now this has been said under oath and is a big step away from " Its just on a blog ". There is some serious allegations of corruption and all centers around the sleepy hamlet of Grouville

It stands to reason that G Power was suspended because he was seen to be siding with Deputy Labey. And Deputy Labey's house was raided because of her, not Syvret.

Very well, I call upon the Deputy of Grouville to reply.

Deputy G.P. Southern of St. Helier:
Before we get to the summing-up, could I ask a point of order, Sir?

Should he not have withdrawn from this? Will you ask that the Minister considers a declaration of interest?

Senator T.J. Le Main:
Could I be advised of the close friend? I have many friends.

Deputy G.P. Southern:
I believe it is Mr. Noel of Alpine Estates.

Senator T.J. Le Main:
No, he is not a close friend and I ask you to withdraw that, please. He is not a close friend at all. He is not a close friend and I deny it and if anybody has got the evidence he is a close friend, please bring it forward. He is impugning my integrity. I apologised yesterday to the Deputy of Grouville and I ask the same consideration.

The Deputy Bailiff:
Senator, you have explained that he is not a close friend, and as far as I am concerned and I am sure as far as the Assembly is concerned, that is the end of the matter and you have no interest to declare. Very well, now I call upon the Deputy of Grouville to reply.

Chicken madras, you need to move up to vindaloo, much better!

Joking aside someone has made a great point about Deputy Labey swearing on oath and that the local media should be jumping on it. They should be interviewing her, if they haven't already, and reporting on it in a non biased way, yeah right!. Maybe they can't while the court case is going on, I don't know but if so then I redact my thoughts on that.

What I find interesting is that a good deal of people already know or assume there is dodgy dealings when it comes to development, some people I know have first hand dealings with the way one company is allowed something but your average Joe company is not. Now that a states member has finally come out and said it, its as if it doesn't really matter. Well, according to the local accredited media.

What she has said is basicaly proving what many people already know, the you scratch my back and I will scratch yours way of life in our lovely states chamber continues on!

If my memory serves me correctly Stuart raised this matter at the July hustings at St Saviour's Parish Hall, and spoke about it in depth.

After the hustings meeting was over the JEP reporter present (Diane Simon) took Stuart to one side and questioned him on this very issue.

It's a good job that I did not hold my breath, because surprise, surprise, not ONE word appeared in the media.

Now we know Tel Boy has made a complaint against Deputy Labey to PPC it will be interesting to see how this all pans out. I know who I choose to believe.

I see Cohen has come out and distanced himself from this alleged Scandal. What the powers that be don't need now is a damning Napier Report.

Stuart Syvret you are making it happen

How is Cohen distancing himself?

power and authority in Law

from the top down

1) God
(look at any judicial officers oath of office)

2) people - men,women and children

3) governments, public officials etc.

4) corporations

naturally and in law the created cannot have a claim against the creator

legal fictions - governments,corporations etc.
are the creation of people

does anyone think a legal fiction(a dead thing)
can have a claim agasinst real living people?

of course not!

in our modern sophisticated world we have forgotten some basic self evident truths

the elite/oligarchy/p.t.b. know these truths,
and have, for many years, been using and abusing the law to deceive us and usurp our rights

our ignorance enables them

Did anyone save a copy of the Bailhache inaugarual speech now removed from Youtube?

I hope to have a blog up tonight about the huge story breaking about the Land Rezoning.

Is this the beginning of the Dam Bursting

The Police where given the evidence back in 2008. Graham Power passed this onto one of his officers and then some very strange events took place.

He got suspended for one

A picture is starting to emerge that goes well beyond the realms of Hollywood

Why was Le Main dumped so very quickly

And then we have Napier


the Truth said...


Make no mistake this is going to be huge. There has always been corruption in planning, its part of life the world over.

In Jersey where land is a premium how many cases have there been concerning planning corruption.

Deputy Labey should be commended for being brave and giving evidence under oath in a court of law

We are talking about millions of pounds

Be careful as this will hurt them more than the Child Abuse Scandal

GeeGee said...

the Truth -I can only agree with the sentiment expressed towards Deputy Labey. Let us not forget either that it was Magistrate Bridget Shaw, and not Stuart who requested Deputy Labey to be questioned by her in Court, and I have the utmost respect for the Deputy for being totally honest.

It may be now that people that have scanned this story in the past and not taken a lot of notice may now sit up and take notice of this and the bigger picture surrounding it.

At the July Hustings, Ozouf was seen at the back of the hall using his phone, as Syvret was exposing the green zone land scandal....

Next day or so Tel Boy Le Main had resigned!

Why did Senator Le Main say he has got his lawyers ready.... The Deputy has just spilled it all out in the Magistrate Court

the Truth said...

I have found this on the SS BLOG.

"On the 5th November, 2008, the Deputy received an angry message from the Bailiff’s chambers – demanding that she attend his office that day, as there was an issue he wanted to speak with her about.

Although intimidated by this, the Deputy refused to attend that day, as she had other commitments, but did agree to go to his office the next day – the 6th November.

As soon as the door was closed and she was alone with Philip Bailhache – “he threw across the desk” at her, “a copy of one of her e-mails to Graham Power, and demanded that she explain her actions in making the complaint, and demanded that she write a letter of ‘apology’ to Graham Power ‘for having “misled” him with her e-mails’”.

On the 12 november Graham Power was suspended

Bring this story on

Christ with all this going down at the moment you can forget about the Napier Report for another month

A previous commenter said that Graham Power QPM was suspended on the 12th. That is correct but the suspension letters were actually being authored on the 8th at 8.44 on a Sturday morning. Which is only two days after the meeting with Deputy Labey and the Balliff. It is rumoured that former CPO Graham Power's decision to investigate the land re-zoning played a big part in his suspension.

Their blantant delaying of the Napier Report.

Is a blessing in disguise.

It will all now have to come out together and complete the jigsaw.

Firstly, if Senator Terry Le Main believes that Deputy Labey has committed perjury, he should be making his complaint to the Police, not P & P who can do absolutely nothing in such a case. But perhaps he would prefer that the Police were not involved!

Secondly, in view of various allegations that Mr. Le Main might well be using the BVI to (allegedly) launder his ill gotten gains, then, as he is a PEP (politically exposed person), the Jersey Financial Intelligence Unit should at the very least be making cursory enquiries to the BVI Financial Intelligence Unit. Certainly, The BVI FIU would expect to be tipped off in such circumstances. Is David Minty still in charge of the Jersey FIU?

A comment sent thurs. 6-39 says it all:
It stands to reason that G Power was suspended because he was seen to be siding with Deputy Labey. And Deputy Labey's house was raided because of her, not Syvret.

If Tel Boy Le Main is so confident he is telling the truth why doesn't he swear an affidavit?

Anonymous said...

it has long been suspected in the building game
that,those operating under the BROWN ENVELOPE (JERSEY) LAW enjoy a better service

deputy Labeys testimony has kick started the usual bluster from those calling for the next our chap 'investigation'

appearances will likely dictate a sacrificial lamb

so when el Tel is thrown to the wolves
(you didn't think you were a full member of their club,did you Tel? haha)
let us hope some who were filling the brown envelopes are charged too.

the 'STATES OF JERSEY' lurching from one scandal to the next with immodest haste

Terry le Maine has got his briefs on call
is this the good upstanding pair of pants that is implicated in the dodgy land rezoning

By Diane Simon

The Longueville Nurseries site was proposed for housing but after objections from the parish, Environment Minister Freddie Cohen is not supporting it
TWO years after the States rezoned 58 vergées of land for homes for the over-55s, Planning Minister Freddie Cohen has questioned whether the need was as urgent as believed.

It was the Planning Department which took the proposition to the States in 2008 when the then Housing Minister Terry Le Main said there was an essential and urgent need for affordable retirement homes, which were not specifically for individual parishes.

Senator Cohen said: ‘The rezoning was not a mistake, but I am questioning whether the need was that urgent. On reflection, it may have been better to have taken the political flak for non-delivery of these homes for the elderly and incorporated them in the Island Plan instead.’

However, Senator Le Main has defended his own role in pushing successfully for the States to rezone that land in seven parishes, and said he is surprised about the Planning Minister’s comments.

This is our Government in a nutshell.

God knows where our Island is heading, I think we should all be really worried, I really do.

How come Guy du Faye has found himself with BDK Architects?

Very nearly enemy no1 to most people and then he pops up saying lets fill in St Aubin.

Again ask yourselfs. WTF is going on in Jersey, has someone dropped some LSD in the water supply

I was going to post P33/2008 last night but am holding back for the moment, housing and field rezoning is not my bag so will wait and see if stuart does a post on it.

I believe it should be a police investigation, but seeing, as they have already been down that route who knows what will happen next. Why did the former Bailiff just discard what the Deputy was saying why did good cop Minty not investigate it or not bother with it.

This will probably need Investigating from the outside

What about Graham Powers role in the land rezoning

Deputy Labey contacted Graham Power and disclosed her information to him, he realized this needed investigating and set the wheels in motion,but, as with the Child Abuse Scandal it gets shut down, this bring us back to the Brian Napier Report.

Napier is the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle. When we have his findings we can start looking at what the hell happened from start to finish. Was, or should i say, has Graham Power been totally shafted in this whole sorry episode. Will Graham Power then be able to say what went on with the rezoning investigation.

Will Brian Napier ask for a committee of enquiry
