Last winter one of our readers drew our attention to Aaron Dover, a Hoaxtead pusher who claims to have actually attended Christ Church Primary School as a child, and whose last known address is in Camden.
Aaron, described as an IT consultant and former hedge fund advisor, in 2014 alleged that he was hunted down by police with helicopters, illegally sectioned, and held for 10 days at Highgate Mental Health Centre, where he was forcibly restrained and injected with anti-psychotic medication.
After being detained last September, the IT consultant was taken to Highgate Mental Health Centre, where doctors suspected he had a delusional disorder. He was later sectioned.
He admits he was under intense stress but believes his sectioning was based on hearsay and not enough was done to verify his account of events.
On October 2, following a five-hour hearing, a tribunal found that it was “not satisfied that he was suffering from a mental disorder”. Mr Dover was freed immediately with no further treatment required. …
A spokesman for Highgate Mental Health Centre, which is run by Camden and Islington Trust, said: “The tribunal makes a decision on whether further detention is warranted based on the assessment to date, and their own interviews.
“The decision that no further detention is needed does not make the original detention for assessment wrong or illegal.”
More recently, we noted that Aaron had made several disturbing posts on his Facebook page. This series was captured on 12 February, 2016, and had been posted the previous day:
Yesterday, though, we discovered that Aaron had been making even more explicit and direct threats against the alleged ‘cult’ in Hampstead, as well as an individual named by Ella and Abe in their original complaint.
These were found under a YouTube video of RD’s daughter being interviewed by police:
These very disturbing threats have been reported to police. (While a London address was found for Aaron, it is possible that he may be in Thailand. Still, we felt it better to be safe than sorry.)
However, we did note that Aaron maintains a profile on Couchsurfing.com, a site where travellers link up with local hosts for relatively inexpensive accommodation:
If we have any friends visiting London this summer, we’re going to suggest they give Aaron’s place a miss.
