HERETICAL TWO IN COURT AGAIN
A forfeiture hearing regarding Simon and Steve's possessions still in police storage took place on Friday July 31st before Judge Grant at Leeds. The judge decided every contested point against Simon, and ordered the forfeiture and destruction of large amounts of valuable office equipment - mainly comprising large printers, which Simon had serviced - Simon's computers were old though. The forfeiture act was intended to deal with goods obtained by drug dealers, so this is clearly a gross abuse of power. The Prosecutor proved more willing to make concessions in Simon's favour than the judge!
An appeal was lodged to-day against sentence, and will be lodged within the statutory twenty-one days against forfeiture of the more innocuous items of office equipment.
A half-caste prisoner attacked Simon and Steve on their way to Court. Simon may have a fractured tooth, further details below. This seems curious, as they were guarded and prisoners in transit would normally have other things to think about - so it sounds like a set up.
One bit of good news is that Steve is to be moved to a lower category of prison very soon. Simon is likely to follow. Steve has been given an early release date in April, which is also good news in view of the length of his sentence. He may apply for bail pending appeal shortly, as he was only convicted of internet counts. Simon cannot do so, as he was convicted for hard copy publication as well, and refused leave to appeal in respect of those matters.
Simon intends to go to the European Court of Human Rights to challenge the Court of Appeal's refusal to review its notorious decision in Reg. v. Birdwood. It upheld judge Pownall's decision that "the truth is no defence" in race cases.
The Carshalton PO box has been shut down - presumably as act of spite by the Post Office's internal branch (security), as money has been sent to the Heretical Two via the PO Box. I have asked customer support to reopen it and will demand compensation.
The Heretical Two would much appreciate letters of support, as there has been none from the BNP, which in fact has been hostile. At least Gary McKinnon, the hacker has had the support of large numbers of Lefties.
