Napier Debacle 1



Brian Napier QC


 

The (4)  Napier Terms of Reference



This has again left me gobsmacked. The TOR gets passed in the States then what happens next?



They get altered 



 In my own opinion they get altered to protect people. 



Anyone who is familiar with the Napier Report will know how damning the 3rd draft is. Why wasn't  Deputy Hill kept in the loop? Why did the Chief Minister go against all his promises? Was was the Deputy Chief Executive John Richardson  changing the TOR's? Was Brian Napier QC changing his TOR's? Is it anything goes? Was it like a Lucky Dip at the old 'COM' Fair.



I have been informed that the TOR for Verita were tweaked



Then we have Napier


What hope can there be for the Committee of Enquiry if the ruling elite with their civil servants can alter TOR's without a care in the world knowing that 90% of the States Chamber wont give a hoot. For me these are very serious issues or am I getting it totally wrong?



Have I got this totally wrong.



 Is it ok for TOR's to be altered after they have been passed in the States.  If so, then sound I will move on.  Heaven help any further reviews into the Shambolic going on's of the States of Jersey if thats the case.



I decided to ask Brian Napier what exactly was going on and reproduce the emails below.



Having not presented his report  or even been  questioned on it's contents is unforgivable especially after taking into account the Gravity of what had happened to the former Chief of Police.



But can we get an answer to a straight forward question from Brian Napier QC? After all, his report was paid for by the Jersey Taxpayer. 



Here are the Brief Exchanges

Dear Mr Napier

 

You might not be aware of this but your report into the Suspension of Graham Power is still raising many issues on the Island of Jersey. I have been Investigating the suspension of Graham Power for some years now. I hope that you will be able to clear up a slight problem I have over the Terms of Reference concerning your report.

 

The TOR's have been passed by States of Jersey so therefore should be set in stone

 

It has now come to my attention that the TOR's have been altered. My main concern here is that the Deputy Chief Minister Senator Philip Ozouf has stated that it was your good self that altered them, I reproduce below the exchange from the States Chamber. This exchange went live and is now in the public domain. Is it right that the QC conducting the enquiry alters his own TOR's? Is this even legal?

 

I hope you can clear up these issues 

 

"The terms of reference as originally set out have been included in the report.  There were some changes made.  They are minor, they are insignificant, they are Mr. Napier’s "

 

 

Kind Regards

Dear Mr Sorda

 

Thank you for your email.  I have considered its contents and the attachment from the proceedings of the States of Jersey.  I think it would be inappropriate for me now to make any comment on this matter and I do not propose to do so.

 

I am sorry not to be able to give you the assistance you request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Brian Napier





So, not to be put off I emailed him again. All I want are some answers that make sense. Something that stacks up,  give me something I can believe.

Dear Mr Napier QC

 

Thank you for you're reply

 

 As you will be aware, the changing of any Terms of Reference that has been passed by the States of Jersey without it being brought back to the House is a very serious issue. I have been made aware that there is now an independent investigation into the changing of the TOR. The report is due out shortly.

 

Any minor change can have far reaching implications. I have so far come across Four different versions. I find  this staggering. The Deputy Chief Minister has informed the States/Public of Jersey that it was you that implemented these changes albeit minor ones.

 

I appreciate you not wanting to comment but 

 

Mr Napier, just one simple question. Did you in any way alter your Terms of Reference or advise Jon Richardson on altering them. I believe that you should also read the link provided so you can understand what is going on in Jersey concerning the TOR

 

http://ricosorda.blogspot.com/2011/01/can-someone-please-help-us.html

 

I lay out below the Four different TOR I have so far come across

 

The Original first

 

Kind Regards 

 

Rico Sorda

 

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. 

 

 

Now, We have R39/2010 a report lodged by the COM ref Napier Report on the 14th April 2010

 

 

 

.    (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.   

 

   (iii) The recording of material relating to the primary events of the  suspension process. 

 

 

So, the Chief Minister is blaming this on a clerical error. Ok, so we give him the benefit of the doubt, they notice the mistake inform all parties and the TOR is back to the original... What happened to part D & E

 

 

Let us look at Napiers TOR for the Final Report; They have used part E from the original TOR and are now using it as Part D. 

 

Terms of Reference  The purpose of the Review is to:- 

 

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

 

  b) Review the manner in which senior officers managed the assembly of key information used in the decision making process that ultimately led to the suspension of the Chief Officer of Police.  

 

c) Investigate whether the procedure for dealing with the 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) 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 12  November 2008.

 

Now that is a complete change. The terms of reference have been altered. This has now narrowed down Brian Napiers Remit.  Can it be right that TOR;s are altered after being passed in the States.? Surely any change must be brought back to the house.

 

The original D has disappeared and been replaced with the original E

 

But that's not the last of it because we now have the R.39/2010 (re-issue) and guess what! We have a new part inserted. 

 

Look out now for the magical C (iii)

 

 

Now we come onto the last set R39./2010 (RE-ISSUE)

 

Why did it go so badly wrong when the TOR's were passed in the States? 

 

 

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 –

of Police. 

 

  (ii) Whether there were any procedural errors in managing the

  (iii) The recording of material relating to the primary events of 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.

To put this in a nutshell, after all the different excuses we've had about the TOR's being altered, in fact I'm almost sure I read on Hansard some time back that they HADN'T been altered! Any how in a nutshell.

Phillip Ozouf says

"There were some changes made. They are minor, they are insignificant, they are Mr. Napier’s"

Then Brian Napier QC says

"I do not intend to make any comment."

What he should have said, or possibly what he was saying is "Thanks for the £50k and even if I never see any of you red-neck corrupt hillbillies again it will be too soon!!"

Surely if the national press had wind of this they may challenge Mr Napier. Frankly, I do not know why he would not wish to comment, as it may lead to his reputation being bought into question.

Any taxpaying member of the public who paid for this report, should at least be able to be sure that the person who carried out the inquiry DID NOT change the terms against the wish of the States.

Anonymous said...

This issue should be pursued, we know from the issues relating to the Verita report, how important the wordings is in the TOR, slight changes, alters what can be considered as part of a report, that does not mean that someone may still read a document that is forwarded, just that anything within it, that does not fall within the TOR, must be disregarded.

I find it unbelievable that the person who is carrying out an inquiry, can change the TOR, it is not credible.

So Ozouf thinks a 'slight change' is okay, it would have been if the States had agreed, but what can we expect from a man who breaks promises!!!

rico sorda said...

It stands to reason that civil servants and law officers have been altering documents approved by States Members, as normal proceedure.

The reality check was first noticed with the altering of The Verita report (to protect guilty and incompitent civil servants).

Now we get the blatent, normal proceedure, altering of The Napier Report, again to protect guilty and incompitent civil servants....

It has to xtop and iy has to stop now, because its criminal!

It would be interesting to see how Mr Napier would respond to similar questions coming from Graham Power. Doesn't Mr Napier realize that he is directly playing into the hands of criminally corrupt politicians, and will be exposed through the retelling of this saga by future historians? There is no question that more will be revealed about the premeditated misuse of Mr Napier's "services" in the days to come.

Also, at the last States sitting; Senator Francis Le Gresley asked Senator Ozouf about the failure to consult with interested parties eg like the JCLA prior to re-opening Haut de la Garenne

His answer

"I acknowledge that Property Holding had not consulted and should have done so. Having said that I support the use of the Facility. Lifeguards will continue to be there this year too."

Isn't that the problem right there, staring us right in the face.

Yes, we should have consulted but we just couldn't be bothered. We do what we like when we like we are the all powerful elite. Now, why are the Abuse survivors continually getting treated like dirt from this Government. It goes right through this whole sorry tragic Scandal. That is not good enough. If they had of consulted it would have been a start.

It makes my Blood boil it really does

Rico it’s not just that he should have consulted with the survivors about the use of HDLG, the fact is he gave an undertaking that he would consult with the survivors.

JEP 5th May 2011
By Richard Heath

Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf has apologised for failing to consult some Islanders before Haut de la Garenne was turned into an activity centre.
The former children’s home, which was at the centre of the historical abuse inquiry, was last month was rebranded the Jersey Accommodation and Activity Centre.
The centre offers land and sea based activities from kayaking and coasteering to walking, rock climbing and skydiving.
It also offers bed and breakfast accommodation to families and groups throughout the year, with optional half board.
During States question time yesterday Senator Francis Le Gresley asked Senator Ozouf why he had failed to consult interested parties, including the Jersey Care Leavers’ Association.
Senator Ozouf, who was speaking in his role as Deputy Chief Minister, said: “I do accept that I gave an undertaking to consult with individuals and I did not do that. That was an error and I apologise for that”.
But the minister said that he supported the decision to turn the former care home into an activity centre.

Just like he promised about not supporting a rise in GST when he was up for election as senator. Just like he promised he would not raise GST if he was elected as treasury minister so there's three broken promises and that's what we know about, how many more untruth's has he told?

I agree with this comment "a small clique of politicans wholly owned by the 'firm'"

If there's one thing that I've learnt over these last few years is that the Law Office(r)s are the people running, or should that be "ruining"? this island. The establishment politicians, in my opinion, are nothing more than puppets.

The real power and influence comes from the Law Office(r)s (the "firm") not the politicians, as you know. In an up-coming interview with Lenny Harper you will hear him saying the exact same, and a little bit more!

Mr Napier is mistaken if he still believes he can get away with glossing over any sordid truths about Jersey. He agreed to play a professional role in this saga, and he was paid handsomely for his report. He should not be permitted to further contribute to the corruption of Jersey's system by remaining silent, when he is clearly a party to so much controversy and cover up. Perhaps Mr Napier did not enter in to his contract with the expectation of distorting the truth, but he has been used for that very purpose. Now it is his choice to either bring transparency to the situation or to find himself forever associated with those who will live in infamy for persecuting a courageous police chief as a means of concealing monstrous child abuse.

You have it in one my friend. Verita & Napier had their Terms of Reference altered. Why do you think so many states members let this happen without eve questioning it? Are they really just the puppets. Look at all the wrong doings that has passed through the States of Jersey concerning the Historical Child Abuse Investigation yet apart from 4 members having the balls to stand up their has been nothing.

So, Philip Ozouf 'made an error' and apologises and thinks it is all ok? This rather begs the question of whether there would have been an apology issued unless the matter had been raised by Senator Le Gresley in the States. After all PO has had a few weeks now to apologise.

Let us see then what happens at the end of the initial year's trial run of JAAC at Haut de la Garenne, whether interested parties will again be forgotten conveniently, because those parties will not forget they were forgotten once!

Furthermore, we cannot allow the forthcoming Committee of Inquiry to be another whitewash and a waste of time and money. It has to have teeth, get answers and some form of closure for those who suffered abuse. No less will suffice.

rico sorda said...

I thought I would post the comment I left Senator Ozouf on his blog and his reply. I would like to thank the Senator for getting back to me.

Philip Ozouf: Your comment on the post Response to JEP Recession Survey has a new reply

Here is your original comment:

Hi Philip I believe its now time that the JEP had a good look at itself. "It is at best, a piece of badly balanced research and reporting, and at worst, a rhetorical anchor binding the minds of the community reader to the murk and hopelessness of an economic crisis that we are all fighting hard to leave behind us." And what of the JEP's reporting of the Jersey Child Abuse Scandal? Lies more Lies and damn Lies. The only hard research done on this subject can be found on VFC, SS and my own humble little Blog Spot RICO SORDA. We have blown their garbage out of the water.

I think it's a great that you are using the Internet and the different outlets that are available in getting your point across. The fiscal stimulus input into the building trade was a huge help for everyone in 2010 I believe you must be given credit for that. Getting back to the JEP, they resemble a ship without a rudder. Philip we are crying out for strong leadership. The next election must be a cornerstone for Jersey. We must come away from the dinosaur thinking of the past and move into a more open and transparent government that will give Jersey a brighter future. The next Government after the 2011 election must be more inclusive, more socially and morally thinking, a Chief Minister that the people of Jersey can believe in. Jersey cant carry on the way it is. The social divide widens by the day and the Natives for once in this very placid Island are getting restless.

We cant afford to have more of the Walker, Le Suer years. Yes, finance must be protected and supported but not to the extent that the very fabric of what makes Jersey such a great Island gets left behind. The Island must move forward as a whole and the only way this can happen is if people start listening on all sides. We need an all inclusive Government Philip with forward thinking politicians, and above all, an end to the old States Dinosaurs who call politicians traitors for having the tenacity to move us forward into a proper working democracy. Could you do that? I finish with the JEP Complete and utter Garbage

rs
Here is the reply:

Dear Rico, Thank you for your positive feedback about the use of social media, I am really finding it a very helpful tool to be more transparent, and also to generate dialogue with members of the community I wouldn't normally hear from from. With regards to your comments about the next election, I couldn't agree more - it is my hope that if anything positive can come out of the difficult times we have been going through as an island, it is a better quality of politics, in terms of focus, efficiency, and transparency. In my role as Treasury & Resources Minister, it has been my responsibility to focus intently on finance and the economy, but over the next few months, I will also be publishing a series of papers on other, more inclusive issues that you refer to. I hope that they will stimulate debate, and wider thinking about a vision for Jersey. Finally, with regards to your question about leadership and, "could I do that?", it is not my place to judge. All I can do work hard, and make decisions based on what I truly believe is right, rather than what is popular, and see where that takes me. I'm not sure where that will be, but at least I sleep at night!

Kind Regards, Philip

So serious are the issues facing Jersey that the next election is huge. Everyone knows this. The JEP are in a flap, Dick Shenton is in a flap, the establishment are in a flap and our Monarchy are in a flatp and Terry Le Main is going home.

5.1.2 Senator T.J. Le Main:

I just do not like these talking shops. Meaningful discussions were able to be held years ago but when broadcasting started in this Assembly, these ‘in Committee’ debates and discussions have been, in my view, a nightmare and nothing but a forum for some Members to be heard and often to electioneer. I, therefore, would just give my very strong held views that I do not support any further erosion of our traditional way of life and I will strongly be opposing any changes to the Bailiff’s current roles and duties. I am just not going to waste my time in a talking shop like this today and I am going to remove myself from the Chamber and go back home.

This man is done in Jersey Politics and if he had any sense he would retire in October. As I said in my reply to Philip Ozouf these dinosaurs are done. We cant move forward with these old guards.
