John Worboys sex attack victims awarded compensation

Two women who were the victims of serious sexual assaults committed by London taxi driver John Worboys have finally been awarded compensation. The Metropolitan (Met) Police will pay out a total of £41,250 to the two women after serious failings were found in its investigation. Mr Worboys committed more than 100 rapes and sexual assaults from 2002 to 2008 and was jailed for life in 2009. The women claimed their treatment by police had caused mental suffering. Met ‘was liable’ One of the women, identified only as DSD, was the first of Mr Worboys' victims to make a complaint to the Met in 2003 and will receive compensation of £22,250. The second woman, identified as NBV, contacted police after she was attacked in July 2007 and will receive £19,000. Both women brought their claims against the Met under Article 3 of the Human Rights Act, which relates to inhuman or degrading treatment. In November, Mr Justice Green at London's High Court ruled that the Met was liable for its failures in relation to the women's complaints. DSD claimed she suffered a depressive disorder as a result of her treatment by police during the 2003 investigation and NBV said she suffered [...]

Expanding Protections to LGBT Community via Executive Order
Yesterday, President Obama continued his charge against discrimination based on LGBT status. In his executive order, he both made it illegal to fire or harass employees of federal contractors based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Secondly, he explicitly banned discrimination against transgender employees of the federal government. According to the Huffington Post,  “The part targeting federal contractors affects 24,000 companies employing roughly 28 million workers, or about one-fifth of the nation’s workforce.”
With this many employers being affected by President Obama’s Executive Order, we, as attorneys, need to be up-to-date on this issue.
What discrimination protections for transgendered people are currently in place?
While transgender is not a protected trait under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the EEOC issued a decision in 2012 that an adverse employment against a transgendered individual was indeed sex discrimination and covered by Title VII.
http://www.eeoc.gov/decisions/0120120821%20Macy%20v%20DOJ%20ATF.txt
The courts, however, are split as to this issue. It’s no surprise that the 6th, 9th, and 11th Circuits recognize transgendered identity as failing to conform to the social idea we have about how men and women should look and behave.
Smith v. City of Salem, Ohio (6thCir 2004); 85 EPD ¶ 41,661, 378 F3d 566; note also Kastl v Maricopa County Community College District (unpublished) (9th Cir 2009); Glenn v Brumby (11th Cir 2011) (not a Title VII case; rather, terminating employee on the basis of her gender nonconformity constitutes sex-based discrimination in violation of the Equal Protection Clause); similarly, while not an employment discrimination case, Rosa v. Park West Bank & Trust Co held that a transgender person stated a claim by alleging that he did not receive a loan application because he was a man, while a similarly situated woman would have received a loan application. It was alleged that the bank treated a woman who dressed like a man differently than a man who dressed like a woman (1st Cir. 2000).
The Illinois Human Rights Act passed in 2005 only protects individuals who have been discriminated against based on sexual orientation and sex and leaves transgendered people out.
The City of Chicago’s Human Rights Ordinance includes gender identity and sexual orientation.
Brittany Ems, author of “Preparing the Workplace for Transition: A Solution to Employment Discrimination Based on Gender Identity” from the St. Louis University Law Journal 54 St. Louis U. L.J. 1329, 1334-35 (2010) brings up some important issues corporation will face on this topic:

While many employers may never encounter a transgender employee, consultants recommend employers prepare for the possibility. Employers can start by making sure company policies are in compliance with state law and city ordinances.Then, if an employee “comes out” at the workplace, guidelines will be in place to answer important questions such as, “What restroom will the employee use?” and “What dress code will the employee follow?” Many employers have already recognized the importance of such procedures and have instituted antidiscrimination policies even though such policies sometimes cause the employer to lose support among other employees. Gerald Maatman, Jr., an attorney representing employers in cases involving transgender employees, has said that implementing antidiscrimination policies “creates some vexing problems for the employer,” which include showing respect for the transgender employee while acknowledging the fears and tensions of other employees. Attaining a balance may be difficult, yet more than 150 Fortune 500 companies manage to do so by including gender identity in their nondiscrimination policies.
A human resources official with Intel Corporation, Pferron Doss, explained that Intel has not only implemented antidiscrimination policies, but also maintains a specific set of guidelines for supporting transgenders as they transition in the workplace. Doss explains that for the other employees, it is “initially a fear of the unknown.”Intel, therefore, works not only to support the transgender but also his or her co-workers by informing and educating them about working with a transitioning transgender.

Dear United Nations, I have been trying so hard to get back intouch under the Convention agsinst Torture and Convention against the Rights of persons with Disabilies, but since then my Freedom of Expression is being unlawfully violated as a inocent person due to an unawfull.prosicuton as the Crown Prosicution Service must apple its obligations under The European Court of Human Rights and the Human Rights Act at each.stage of a case.

Failing to do so would be unlawfull yet they unlawfully carried on with no regard to International Ław

Just as the State after I had contacted the Home Secretary Teresa May to inform her about the faillings in The Production of Children Act 1999, the Failings in the Safegaurding of Vulnerabls Groups 2006

The Multi Agency Protocol of sharing Information in wich there is a duty to refer the abuse of vulnerable adults

How as a vulnerable adult under Human Rights Act 1998 Article 3 Prohibition of Torturę which under The Criminal Justice Act 1988 s134 Torturę anyone commits the offence of torturę faces a sentance of life in prison

Also Human Rights Act Article 6 The Right to a Fair Trail

Failed to respond under the Equality Act 2010 Due Regard to Disability unlawfull discrimination

Now i know i have brian damage receiving no form of help as a victim of Psghychological Torturę or even medical help this is why i am taken so long as i have brain damage and still being subjected to pshhychological torturę

Financial compensation that is awarded by a civil court to an individual who has suffered injury through the wrongful conduct of another party is known as 'damages'. Damages are not generally available as a remedy for judicial review proceedings (where a judge reviews the lawfulness of a decision or action of a public body), unless there has been a breach of EU law or the Human Rights Act 1998. This is an arbitrary distinction that the Law Commission has said should be reformed. This general prohibition:

is unfair, as it creates an incentive for public office holders not to create documents; and
does not provide claimants with an effective remedy for the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) purposes.
As a result of this distinction, to receive damages, judicial review claimants have had to plead other claims, in particular, in the area of law that covers most civil law suits (tort law), of improper use of the law in public office.  This is what Vincent Tchenguiz has done in his current dispute with the SFO. To prevail, claimants need to prove that a public office holder acted with malice or bad faith. The problem is that the evidential burden for this is difficult to satisfy as it is not enough for there simply to be an unlawful act or decision....

"Today, the UK's Open Rights Group (ORG) announced that it would be challenging DRIP in the courts:
Whilst Parliament swallowed Theresa May’s tired arguments that "terrorist plots will go undetected" and "these are powers and capabilities that exist today", she failed to make a compelling argument that holding everyone's data is necessary and proportionate. Frankly, the Government was evasive and duplicitous, and they were in a hurry to cover their tracks. 

Tom Watson MP described the process as "democratic banditry, resonant of a rogue state. The people who put this shady deal together should be ashamed." 

And the European Court's decision was very clear: blanket data retention is unlawful and violates the right to privacy. 

The courts will have the final say on whether DRIP breaches human rights. And no matter what David Cameron believes, the UK has international obligations. The European Convention on Human Rights, the European Charter of Fundamental Rights and our own Human Rights Act -- all exist to defend our rights and are where we will be able to challenge DRIP. 

And that's what we will do."

Presenting the case FOR the Human Rights Act
...quite honestly, is there anything to object to about it ?
Is it a problem for humans to have their most basic rights set out in the form of an incontestable document ?
It was created specifically because there are evil administrations like Westminster who would prefer to abuse the citizens they dominate.
Why would anyone who isn't high on some form of drug or other brainwashing or just totally insane wish to give up the must basic protection left to them when all others fail ?

Parents hope truth will emerge at new inquest into Deepcut death

RELATIVES of soldier Cheryl James have spoken of their hope that the circumstances surrounding her death at Deepcut barracks will emerge more than 20 years after the tragedy. High Court judges have ordered a fresh inquest into the death of Pte James after her family applied for a fresh investigation with the consent of the Attorney General. Pte James, 18, was found dead from a single gunshot wound in November 1995, and an inquest recorded an open verdict. She was one of four soldiers who died at the Surrey barracks between 1995 and 2002 amid claims of bullying and abuse. Privates Sean Benton, James Collinson and Geoff Gray also died from gunshot wounds. Her parents, Des and Doreen James, applied through the human rights campaign group Liberty for a new inquest after the Human Rights Act was used to secure access to documents held by the authorities about the teenager’s death. Mr and Mrs James said they were “delighted” to have a fresh inquest but “a meaningful inquiry into Cheryl’s death is almost 20 years late”. In a statement, they said: “When young people die in violent circumstances, a rigorous and transparent investigation should be automatic. Something went dreadfully wrong [...]

Our government is blasting a new law onto the books, out of the blue. Under the guise of a pincer movement from Syrian jihadists and British paedophiles, it is trying to terrorize its citizens into accepting the bombshell Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill (DRIP).
All three main political parties – Labour, Tories and the Lib-Dems – have secretly plotted to demand all private citizens’ email and phone records be stored by firms so state spies can sift through them.


The new law is designed to re-instate the snooping enabled under the 2006 European Data Retention Directive, which the European Court of Justice (ECJ) struck down last April as in breach of the Human Rights Act. The British government wants to circumvent that judgement by re-branding spying under DRIP. It describes the Bill as an emergency ‘stop gap’. Yet in the last three months, no party has discussed the ECJ’s ruling with the public, and they are now, without any debate, trying to make it into law during three days next week, before parliament’s summer break.
