Judge Accused of being “Bent as a Banana” in child abuse case

Investigative journalist Richard Carvath has called Judge Jeremy Lea “as bent as a banana”
It has been hard to work out the truth of this case in Nottinghamshire.
Partly this is due to
  • lack of information
  • court restrictions
  • having worked out the establishments official story, there is the problem of judging how close this is to the truth.
Naturally I have no wish to adversely affect any cases that may be brought, nor do I wish to fall foul of any restrictions that I do not even know about.
It appears a family court judgment made a mothers two boys, ward of the court. It was critical of her but the mother (Samantha Baldwin) ignored the judgment took the children with her, against the wishes of the authorities. She was “missing” for two or three days and then went to police who have taken now taken the children from her. In the meantime the police and family courts have issued statements. It appears that family members were threatened with charges of helping the mother take the children.

Two useful posts on the case are from the Transparency Project.
2017 Apr 3 Police hunt for mother who has abducted her own children – what on earth is going on? [15]
This post summarises what was known on the 3rd and 4th of April and has links to several corporate media articles if people wish to research them. They do not seem to add much to the facts, and corporate media almost never link to sources, so I will not reference them here.
The Transparency Project article states that on 27 Mar the Family Court held a hearing about these two boys. It decided to declare the boys wards of court. Probably on 3 Apr the Family Court then issued a statement via the police website, which now appears to be unavailable, which included
Miss Baldwin is now missing. It is assumed that she has abducted [the children]. The children have now been made wards of Court. Miss Baldwin is considered to pose a risk of harm to the children.”
Superintendent Richard Fretwell of Nottinghamshire Police was in charge of the search for Samantha Baldwin.
The article then explains some useful definitions such as abduction and custody.
The next article, 2017 Apr 10 Samantha Baldwin – another side to a very sad story [16] has more useful information.
It contains links and copies of
  • text of a judgment read out in open court (and hence reportable)
  • statement from the children’s father David Madge
The article states
  • the mother made allegations of sexual abuse of the boys by the father, and others, some years ago;
  • these were the subject of a lengthy fact-finding hearing very recently (12 days, which is a significant duration for a trial in a private law case), but it seems likely that any criminal investigation associated with this hearing did not lead to charges against the father;
  • after 12 days of evidence from the parents, and a host of other witnesses and consideration of more than 2,000 pages of documents, the judge decided that the mother had failed to prove that it was more likely than not that her allegations were true, although she did genuinely believe them to be true;
  • more than that, he found that she was so convinced that the allegations were true that she had gone to the lengths of drugging the boys in order to bolster the case that the children were victims of abuse – in essence she fabricated evidence in the hope of securing the finding she believed was justified;
  • and the judge found that when the mother realised the writing was on the wall, she made a plan and then whisked the children away to her chalet to prevent the court from acting on its judgment.
  • The children are now temporarily in foster care – the reason given for them not returning immediately to the care of their father is that as a result of their mother’s own irrational belief, they may now have a false belief that they were in fact abused by their father. It also appears that they have not had contact with, let alone been cared for by their father for some years.
That then appears to be a summary of the official position. Supporters of Samantha Baldwin, which include investigative reporter Richard Carvath think this is not an accurate picture. He also claims court papers have been served on him and he has been gagged.
He says that he has to balance getting the truth to the public whilst still protecting the legally admissible evidence that is needed to seek justice for them. (OBO stands for On Behalf Of, and it appears that someone is operating his twitter account, presumably with his permission)
He thinks that the Judge Jeremy Lea is as “bent as a banana”
Richard Carvath seems worried for his own safety
He says
  • there is an international network of child traffickers
  • satanic ritual abuse is involved
  • the judge should recuse himself
  • the mother could not fabricate evidence of sodomy
This demand for recusal of the judge would appear to suggest that Richard Carvath thinks  the judge has a conflict of interest which may include knowing people who are involved in the abuse network.

It is said the children have disclosed sexual abuse by multiple men and that Greater Manchester Police were told but carried out completely unprofessional interviews and even maintained that the alleged perpetrator was innocent [10] .
The child trafficking and ritual abuse network is believed to have infiltrated Greater Manchester Police.
Nottinghamshire Police and GMP both have poor historical records for investigating child sexual abuse, and have been accused of covering up child sexual abuse.
Whilst not judging this particular case in any way, certainly it is the feeling of many survivors that
  • establishment figures such as judges, doctors and lawyers are involved in child sexual abuse
  • establishment figures such as judges, doctors and lawyers cover up child sexual abuse by adversely affecting judicial proceedings by false reports and other means
  • one method of covering up child sexual abuse is to fabricate charges against the whistleblower or innocent parents
  • custody of abused children in many cases goes to the abuser
  • in cases of ritual satanic abuse the establishment binds even tighter together and is even more vigorous in covering up the truth. There are a number of “usual suspects” in the corporate media who get paid for repetitive “satanic panic” theories to deny any ritual abuse. This extends to social media, where one such barrister troll received a harassment warning [18]
  • the deniers may be delusional, DID, in denial, abused but in denial, blackmailed, under the influence of the deep state, security services, gladio or even genuinely misinformed.
Several whistleblowers on child sexual abuse have been targetted by the police and judicial system over the past few years, Child Sexual Abuse Campaigners and Whistleblowers targeted by state organisations [19] 
Richard Carvath has been investigating the seamier side of Greater Manchester Police for several years. This is a 70 page Report authored by him in 2012 Prostitutes & Police – A Report on the Vice Trade Policy of Greater Manchester Police [8]. It is well worth a read
Demonstrations of support for Samantha Baldwin in Nottingham and London are set to go ahead on Monday 24th April.

Family Courts have been criticised for some considerable time for their secrecy, and gagging clauses which are ostensibly for the protection of the children but which often have the effect of silencing the truth.
This leaves the family courts untransparent, unaccountable and also open to be used for nefarious purposes by the establishment and professionals to cover up dodgy practices and criminal activities.
Sir James Munby, President of High Court Family Division pushed for greater transparency in 2014 [14] [13], and new guidance was brought [12] in but appears to have had little effect [11]
