Rupert Quaintance trial update: Day 1

If you’ve ever spent any time at all in court, you’ll know that a great deal of that time is spent cooling one’s heels in the corridor outside the actual courtroom.

And so it was this morning at Southwark Crown Court, where Rupert Quaintance is standing trial on five charges of harassment.

Our reporter for the day turned up promptly at 10 a.m. for a 10:30 start, only to find a tiny cadre of the defendant’s supporters encamped outside Courtroom 7. Belinda and a hitherto unknown gentleman whom she referred to as Neil sat quietly; eventually Rupert himself turned up, and they all chatted amicably for some time. They were joined by Rupert’s legal team, who ultimately wandered off to the other end of the hall to confer with the CPS legal team.

Belinda wasted no time in assuring her companion that the relative absence of supporters for the witnesses meant that the Satanists had been tipped off by a police officer not to bother coming today, “because don’t forget, he’s in the gang”. Uh-huh. Sure, Belinda.

And still everyone sat, until about 11:50, when the case was finally called.

Again in contrast to Sabine and Neelu’s trial last year, there was no wrangling for seats: the three supporters present were offered their choice of a relatively generous 16 seats in the public gallery.

It transpired that since Judge Martin Griffiths will be unavailable to the court on Friday, the CPS and defence teams had been negotiating the best way to shorten the proceedings. As it currently stands, they anticipate hearing all witnesses tomorrow, with summing up arguments on Thursday.

The jury was admitted at 12:20 p.m. and duly sworn in. The judge reminded them of their obligation not to discuss the case outside the jury room, and in particular ordered them not to Google Rupert’s name online for the duration of the trial.

The jury was then dismissed, and court adjourned to 2:00 p.m.

At that time the judge delivered a court order designed to protect the identities of any children who might be involved in the case: in any reporting of the trial, there must be no revealing of any information which could lead, either directly or indirectly, to the identification of any child named as part of the Hampstead SRA hoax.

Consequently, we will not be publishing the identities of any of the witnesses, nor anything they might say which could compromise any child’s right to privacy.

Court adjourned for the day just before 2:30 p.m., and will resume tomorrow at 10 a.m. in Room 7, Southwark Crown Court.


We know we’ve mentioned this before, and we hate to be tedious, but we’d like to remind any newcomers that it is crucial that we or any of our commenters avoid discussion of Rupertโ€™s guilt or innocence, as well as speculation regarding the process or outcome of the trial. Please reserve such opinions until the trial is complete, to ensure that justice is properly served, and that we do not find ourselves in contempt of court.

  1. Thank you for this update, EC.

    And thanks to the roving reporter who patiently sat through it all.

    By the way, you mention that they’re hoping to have all the witness testimonies tomorrow and the summings up on Thursday, so do I take it there are no proceedings on Wednesday?

    • Sorry, our reporter didn’t specify, but as I recall from last year they did witnesses one day, then the defence team did their thing the next. They’ll have half-time submissions and so forth, and assuming the court agrees that there is still a case to answer after that (this was not the case last year), there will be summing up by both sides on Thursday.

    • I feel quite sorry for Neelu.
      Of all the Hoax promoters she is clearly one who has a grave mental illness and the others whose motives are highly suspect (won’t mention names but Belinda McKenzie and Angela come to mind) egg her on or just abandoned her to tilt at her imaginary windmills.
      It seems Neelu’s life is a downward trajectory and the poor thing lashes out at all and sundry, bailiffs. coppers etc which has absolutely no affect except to receive puzzled looks.
      We know this dreadful vicious hoax has had a terrible affect on so many lives but were are those who stood outside a church screaming at parishioners and accusing them of dreadful crimes?
      The pitch fork mob have merely moved onto a new drama as Hoaxtead no longer provides the thrill it did (so much for their concern over dozens of babies killed every week). They are like drug addicts seeking a new thrill.

    • Indeed a welcome move but let’s hope they get it right.
      As usual the “free speech” creeps are out in force, a deluded bunch of nasties who still haven’t worked out yet that although the internet gives many more people a platform to publish, it has also legitimized on-line “Poison Pen Letters” which have always been regarded as abhorrent by society.

      Then there is the arrogant bunch- usually journalists or internet publication tech writers who waffle on with the same claptrap about ‘free speech’ etc etc and seem to think they are somehow above the fray.

      But I say this to them (and indeed have issued the challenge)- give me all your private details, your children’s names and where they go to school, relatives details etc etc and allow me to publish a website with every filthy lie I can muster. And then give me a few months to spread this stuff like a virus until it it so entrenched out there on a 1000 websites.
      Then let’s see how brave you are after devastation has been caused in your lie.

      Not one gutless coward has taken me up on the challenge.

He is mostly a boring retard, what he posts has little value to waste time over. There are more important things in life than wasting life looking at every little boring rant Shurter posts. Shurter provides the entertainment in the interval between important events like court cases against Satan Hunters. He is a nobody. I personally will forget about him when I retire from the fight, perhaps as early as Friday.

      That’s always supposing anyone bothers their arse to enforce these things!
