OPERATION END GAME -11- THE JERSEY LAW OFFICE
WE KEEP ON ASKING THE QUESTIONS
THE JERSEY LAW OFFICE
BAILIFF IN 2008/2009 - Sir Philip Bailhache
DEPUTY BAILIFF 2008/2009 - Michael Birt
ATTORNEY GENERAL 2008/2009 - William Bailhache
SOLICITOR GENERAL 2008/2009 - Tim Le Cocq
Just a very quick posting.
Below I reproduce the email correspondence I have had with the Jersey Law Office.
They are very self explanatory.
Here is an extract
"The former Chief of Police Graham Power was suspended 3 times between November 12th 2008 and the 31st July 2009 - this, in itself, must be worthy of the Guinness Book of Records. Has a Chief of Police ever been suspended so many times? and, in such a short space of time? Graham Power then waits 11/2 years for the Home Affairs Minister who drops all disciplinary action. The Minister then character assassinates Mr Power with the help of the local media."
I want to keep my readers up to speed with exactly what's happening. I have been trying to find out exactly what happened with the David Warcup safe cracking episode.
This all ties into 'OPERATION BLAST'
These issues must be looked at before we move forward.
The Jersey Law Office is the real Power in Jersey.
Nothing happens without the nod from the Jersey Law Office

Dear Attorney General,
During my research into the illegal suspension of the former Chief of Police Graham Power some alarming develoments have occured. Former Chief of Police Graham power wanted access to his secure safe through his represenative. ACO David Warcup wasn't happy about this
December 2008- In late 2008 Graham Power is contacted by the Chief Ministers Department about gaining access to his secure cabinet which is held in the Chief of Polices office. Graham Power agreed a process whereby a Jersey Advocate representing Graham Power would be given the code in a sealed envelope and would take this to police and be present when the cabinet was opened.
December 22nd 2008 - The Chief Ministers wrote to Graham Power and said that although this arrangement had been put in place Acting Chief David Warcup had objected and the matter put on hold.
January 13th 2009 - Graham Powers representative Constable T. Brain wrote to Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand stating that Connetable Simon Crowcroft had agreed to be present when the cabinet was opened as an observer and subject to all appropriate requirements of confidentiality. The letter also pointed out that as part of his office Simon Crowcroft was a police officer and subject to disciplinary procedures.
January 22nd 2009 - Acting Chief of Police opens Graham Powers secure cabinet. Also present is Superintendent Wayne Bonne of Wiltshire Police and David Warcups Staff officer Dave Burmingham. Staff Officer Burminghams role was to compile a list of contents in Graham Powers secure safe and office. This act was done without the consent of Graham Power. Graham Power did not hand over the code to the secure cabinet. What was Superintendent Wayne Bonne doing at the "blowing of the doors" of Graham Powers secure cabinet? Looking for evidence?
An audio tape was recovered from Graham Powers secure cabinet. This audio tape was discovered in a sealed envelope. This tape contained conversations between Graham Power, the media, representatives of partner agencies, and a States Member Stuart Syvret.
I have also reproduced part of a letter from former Head of HR Ian Critch to Graham Power dated 22nd December 2008. What jumps out at me is that David Warcup was getting legal advice.
I will quote Mr Critch;
"Mr Warcup has though spoken with me and he has concerns about the process for access previously discussed with you. His concerns principally relate to matters of disclosure relating to the current criminal case and legal advice he has received. I must advise therefore that he is taking further advice on this matter and he will revert to me as soon as possible. In the meantime, should you wish to simply supply the code then we would be grateful"
1.What legal advice did David warcup receive that resulted in him breaking into Graham Powers secure Safe when Graham Power was suspended under a neutral act and could be returning to work very shortly.
2. What legal advice did David Warcup receive that resulted in a locksmith being able to attend and open Mr Powers secure safe and not a lawyer or Constable? On the 9th January 2009 Ian Critch writes to Graham Power saying there are problems which Mr Power replies to on the 12th January 2009 and states;
"The searching of the locked cabinet in my office in order to establish whether it contains a copy of my terms and conditions is a ten minute task which has now been subject of correspondence for over a month. Throughout all of this time I have asked only that a person representing my interests be present when this was done. This was to ensure fairness, vouch for the authenticity of anything which was found, or confirm that nothing was found, and to recover on my behalf a document to which I was entitled. We appeared to agree that this person would be Advocate Lakeman, and he was therefore provided with a sealed envelope containing the information necessary for this agreement to move forward. Since that apparently fair and acceptable arrangement was agreed, objections have been made through you, the latest being in your letter dated 9th January 2009 in which you state that it is not possible for him to be present because the cabinet contains “very confidential information” which it would be inappropriate for Advocate Lakeman “or anyone else outside of the service” to have sight of. As you are aware, it was never the intention that my representative would take an interest in any matters other than the task for which they were appointed, namely attempting to recover a true copy of my terms and conditions on my behalf. Given that the copy which should be held in your department is inexplicably missing, my concerns on this issue are natural and understandable. You state that you offer your personal assurance that any personal items contained in the cabinet will be delivered to me, but do not say how this will be achieved, given that you also appear to be in the category of persons who will not be allowed to be present or view the contents
3. Why does David Warcup then lie under Oath to Wiltshire where he states and I quote;
"In view of the fact that I did not have access to the safe combination contact was made with Mr Power to obtain the combination. Following an exchange of messages between Mr Power's appointed contact and the force, I established that Mr Power refused to disclose the combination of the safe as a result of which I arranged for a locksmith to attend."
"At 14"30 hrs onn 22nd January 2009 I was present along with Detective Superintendent Bonnie (Wiltshire..rs) and Inspector Burmingham when the safe was opened. A check was made of the contents and a schedule prepared of the items contained therein"
"The following documents were removed from the safe were later copied and forwarded to Detective Superintendent Bonnie."
"In the safe I also found a sealed white envelope marked as follows 'S Syvret' which was date stamped 10th April 2007. When opened the envelope was found to contain an audio tape. A transcript of the audio tape was subsequently made and is contained on 41 pages. A copy of the transcript has been forwarded to Superintendent Bonnie" End
This needs explaining. It all comes down to what legal advice David Warcup was getting. did the Law Office give David warcup the green light to break into Graham poers secure safe/cabinet yes or no. Or, did david warcup decide to break into Graham Powers off his own back? I don't think so.
He was receiving advice from the Law office. this would have been fromm the SG of the time Tim le Cocq or the Attorney General William Bailhache.
Did one of the above advice David warcup to go ahead and break into Graham powers secure Safe /Cabinet whilest he was suspended as a neutral act? If not then what did David Warcup think he was doing - there are excellent fishing locations around Jersey apart from Graham Powers secure safe.
Look Forward to your prompt reply

Dear Mr Power
I refer to your letters of the 5th(received on the 9th), 11th and 17th December 2008.
With regard to access to the secure cabinet,I understand that arrangements were being put in place for this to be done as soon as possible (I am aware that Advocate Lakeman's office have contacted Phil Wells and he has contacted Mr Warcup). Mr Warcup has though spoken with me and he has concerns about the process for access previously discussed with you. His concerns principally relate to matters of disclosure relating to the current criminal case and legal advice he has received. I must advise therefore that he is taking further advice on this matter and he will revert to me as soon as possible. In the meantime, should you wish to simply supply the code then we would be grateful.
In your letter of the 5th of December you informed me for the first time that you recall that changes to your benefit were made to the 2005 Terms and Conditions documented previously sent to you. As stated previously, the only version of this document on file is the unsigned copy sent to you by Steve Austin Vautier. I attach, for the sake of completeness, the following documents, which are the only copies which I have on file.

Dear Mr Sorda,
The Attorney General has asked me to respond to your email.
It would not be appropriate for this office to enter into correspondence with a member of the public about a matter in which they have no direct interest.
We do not propose to comment on the accuracy or otherwise of the contents of your email in any way. However, as a matter of general application, and for your future guidance, what advice may or may not have been given by this department to any person on any matter and whether or not any advice has been given at all is a matter that remains confidential and any advice which had been given would be covered by legal professional privilege.

Dear Mr Allen,
I thank the Attorney General for his reply.
As you can imagine,the issues raised, are of grave importance.
The former Chief of Police Graham Power was suspended 3 times between November 12th 2008 and the 31st July 2009 - this, in itself, must be worthy of the Guinness Book of Records. Has a Chief of Police ever been suspended so many times? and, in such a short space of time? Graham Power then waits 11/2 years for the Home Affairs Minister who drops all disciplinary action. The Minister then character assassinates Mr Power with the help of the local media.
This all happens in the middle of a live investigation into decades of Child Abuse in the Jersey Care Homes.
Now, it absolutely does concern me. The actions of David Warcup concern me. The fact that David Warcup broke into the secure cabinet/safe with the help of a locksmith without allowing Graham Power to have representation is of grave concern. Graham Power was suspended under a neutral act and should have been returning to work on March 5th 2009 - until, that is, Senator Le Marquand lost all sense of natural justice.
Acting Chief of Police Warcup was getting advice about the safe situation. By natural deduction, I would say that advice was coming from the Jersey Law Office.
Mr Warcup broke into Graham Powers secure safe/cabinet. He then lied to Wiltshire, under Oath, about his actions.
If the Jersey Law Office gave the green light for this then it raises very serious questions
If the Jersey Law Office didn't sanction this then one has to ask what was David Warcup thinking. His actions are extraordinary. Why the lies?
This is about people being accountable for their actions or explanations for them.
It concerns me greatly
A new posting will be up in the next couple of days. Then it will be none stop right up till the Committee of Enquiry. There is so much concerning Blast
Thank you for the Support
