Notice of Event: Bill of Rights Hearing in Worcester

Notice of Event: Bill of Rights Hearing in Worcester

Fownes Hotel, Worcester

Robin Decrittenden vs. Worcester City Council

Appeal No. WC 49.

18th November 2005 11am

"£1,000,000,000 a year revenue from Parking Fines under threat"

This notice is to all supporters, contacts and interested parties and is to inform you that on 18th November 2005 at 11am at the Fownes Hotel in Worcester a National Parking Adjudication Service hearing is to take place between Robin Decrittenden and Worcester City Council.

The hearing will be the first public airing of the use of the Bill of Rights Defence against a Penalty Charge Notice issued, in this instance, under Worcester City Council's decriminalised parking enforcement regime.

The hearing is open to the public and any interested parties are requested to attend the venue. A large public room has been reserved for the hearing.

The potential of the case is that it could expose the Government and Local Authorities operating decriminalised parking enforcement regimes as acting unlawfully. The consequence could be that they have no legal authority to impose 'fines' thereby threatening a massive source of revenue which is now approaching £1,000,000,000 per annum!

Please no banners, placards or flags. Please circulate amongst your contacts and organisation.

Robin Decrittenden states,"The purpose of this challenge is to put the politicians back in their kennels by requiring them to obey the law that regulates Parliament itself."

Metric Martyrs Campaign Director, Neil Herron states, "This is the first head on conflict exposing the highly suspect Metric Martyrs Judgment. If the Judgment is correct then decriminalised parking fines cannot be levied. Alternatively, the Metric Martyrs were convicted and are innocent."

Overview of the Case:
1. The Declaration and Bill of Rights (1688/89) provide the very particular legal requirement that fines and forfeitures can be imposed on individual people only after conviction – and any conviction requires the full involvement of a Court of Law.

The Declaration & Bill of Rights do not recognize any difference between Civil and Criminal matters: The rules apply to both parts of the law.

2. The Judgment given in the Metric Martyrs Case of 2002 provides that the terms of the Bill of Rights may not be changed or removed by anything other than very specific wording - and that all/any such wording must be contained within the text of any later legislation.

3. The Road Traffic Act of 1991 attempts to assert that Courts of Law are not required to consider questions relating to the Parking Fines that are now being imposed by local authorities which have decided to join themselves to a Government-sponsored scheme that is known as ‘de-criminalised parking’.

The Road Traffic Act of 1991 has not changed or removed the provisions of the Bill of Rights, in accordance with the terms of the Judgment provided in the Metric Martyrs Case, and as a consequence the law says that the Road Traffic Act of 1991 is not a law at all.

4. Under the provisions of ‘de-criminalised parking’ motorists are now being required to take their parking-ticket appeals to the authority that actually issued the ticket – and then on to an allegedly independent Parking Adjudication Service that is known as NPAS.

5. NPAS receives all of its funding from the local authorities which are issuing the tickets that are being appealed and funding is provided to NPAS at the rate of 60 pence per parking-ticket issued. It is obvious that it must be in the interests of NPAS to make quite sure that the paying Councils are given full support during all processes of dealing with the appeals that are made by members of the public.

The ‘system’ itself provides that there can be no true independence within the work of NPAS, because the existence of NPAS is absolutely dependent on the goodwill of the local authorities which are paying the wages of the NPAS staff.

There is no provision made for the work of NPAS to be scrutinized by any outside body, and the NPAS failure to control the unlawful activities of the local Councils that have joined the scheme becomes increasingly apparent.

In Sunderland and the North-East alone, millions of pounds are now due to be refunded to members of the public, because of Council failures to keep to the rules – and it is VERY significant that not one of these Council failures has been exposed by NPAS!

6. On 18th November, 2005, at 11.00 am, an NPAS tribunal sitting at Fownes Hotel in Worcester will hear Appeal No. WC 49.

This Appeal is based entirely upon a direct challenge to the legality of the Road Traffic Act of 1991, when measured against the very specific legal requirements of the Declaration & Bill of Rights.

7. Government-sponsored attempts to pervert our system of justice; to take our money out of our pockets and to turn this country into a dictatorship controlled by people who simply do not know how to tell the truth - are to be brought face to face with the open resistance of a pensioner and your support is required –
