In this age of “post-truth”, it can be difficult to know just who to believe. However, in certain instances the choice becomes extremely clear: anything that issues from the general direction of Neelu Berry ought to be viewed with extreme suspicion.
For example, yesterday she posted this on her Facebook profile:
Thoughts of the Day 05 December 2017: Well, I have been going into the stone building called the Royal Courts of Justice, RCJ, which the people of the UK have renamed the “Royal Courts of Injustice” over the years. Recently I have discovered how people can be disappeared from that building. There is a case of a man called Ashok Mahajan, an accountant, who had filed numerous cases against the UK State, including against the Central London County Court. I spoke to him on the telephone whilst he was imprisoned “Indefinitely” in Wandsworth Prison. He told me the court, the judge, the barristers had staged an acid attack case against him and he had flicked an empty plastic cup with a few drops of water at a trainee barrister after being provoked by her. He told me he had lost a kidney and was being denied dialysis for 18 months.
If one were a
gullible nitwit credulous fool friend of Neelu’s, one might think, “My goodness, that poor man! And how terrible that those upon whom we rely for justice in this land could assault an innocent soul in such a horrendous manner! Isn’t it just like the Powers that Be to lock him away, so he can be prevented from spreading his story hither and yon?!” and so forth.
But about 30 seconds’ worth of fact-checking reveals a few hole’s in Neelu’s version:
Ashok Mahajan, 55, showered a barrister, solicitor and pupil with the contents of a bottle of hydrochloric acid after his race discrimination claim was thrown out.
Trainee barrister Lucy Colter suffered a burned eye as corrosive fluid dribbled down her face and melted through her tights.
Former accountant Mahajan had a decade-long history of courtroom outbursts including an incident where he threw a shoe at one barrister and threatened to shoot him.
Mahajan was handed an indefinite period of imprisonment for the public protection after reports indicated he posed a high risk of serious harm to members of the legal profession.
He was convicted of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent following a three week trial earlier this year.
Judge Nicholas Lorraine-Smith branded Mahajan the most difficult defendant he had ever dealt with.
Sentencing at Southwark Crown Court the judge told him: “I have had extensive dealings with you, Mr Mahajan, over the last six months, and I have no doubt whatsoever that there is a very significant risk of serious injury being caused by you committing further specified offences.
“I don’t consider this offence warrants a life sentence, but the sort of revenge that you tried to take last October and the increasing intensity of your obsessional hatred of lawyers and now others who have to deal with you in a professionally persuades me that I must pass a sentence of imprisonment for the public protection, which means that you will not be released until it is safe to do so.
“This was an attempt to cause grievous bodily harm to members of the legal profession, simply because they were carrying out their professional duty.”
The judge ordered that Mahajan will not be assessed for parole for a minimum of five years, the equivalent of a 10 year determinate sentence.
From another contemporaneous news source we learn that Mr Mahajan confessed to having thrown the acid:
He allegedly confessed afterwards, saying “I intended to burn and blind them. They have burned me for 20 years. They are the true Nazis.”
The court heard how he told police officers: “I wish somebody would blow their brains out.”
Soooo…yes. Mr Majahan is in prison for an indefinite term, until he can learn not to assault people who are doing their jobs within the court system. He was sentenced in December 2009, and presumably has not yet been judged fit to wander free amongst humans.
Neelu goes on to describe the case of an “anti-corruption lawyer” (coughEdwardElliscough) who also appeared to suffer a horrendous fate within the walls of the Royal Courts of Justice:
Recently, there was a disappearance attempt on an anti-corruption lawyer, who was prevented from attending his own committal hearing for alleged contempt of court for helping people fight corruption.
The case was not called, which meant the public were excluded whilst the judge conducted a single sided hearing in private. So the lawyer would have been arrested for not turning up for his hearing whilst being forcibly excluded from entering the building.
One of his supporters stopped the hearing and got it adjourned whilst the judge Ordered Security to allow him in (surprisingly, the judge was not surprised that this had happened – clearly they used facial recognition or photographs of the lawyer to alert Security Officers to ban him from his own hearing for the purposes of disappearing him).
This is the third time there has been a failed committal hearing of the same anti-corruption lawyer. The RCJ continues to enforce a ban on his entry to the building even though many judges have ordered that he been allowed entry to represent anti-corruption cases for State Corruption Victims.
All the decisions made in that building will be overturned once the truths of the corruption within that building is exposed.
As it happens, Mr Ellis, a struck-off solicitor who once suggested to a client (before he was struck off) that “one of two ways of getting some money would be ‘murder Michael (her brother) and get away with it'”, has been in rather serious difficulty of late. It seems that despite multiple warnings, he has placed himself in contempt of court by bringing various cases before the courts when he was under a general civil restraint order which prevented him from doing so.
In a previous case in which Mr Ellis had involved himself, Mr Chegwidden, representing the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, had this to say about Mr Ellis:
He is already the subject of a CRO (Civil Restraint Order) which was imposed in March, and the CRO’s terms were specifically that Mr Ellis is restrained from issuing claims on behalf of others or from assisting others to bring claims in contravention of the Legal Services Act, and [inaudible] of the Legal Services Act is reference to the fact that Mr Ellis claims to be, he calls himself an Equity lawyer, of course he is not a practising or registered solicitor of any kind and he does not possess the right to issue claims on behalf of others or to speak on behalf of others or to assist others, but that is what he has been doing. The reason why we know that Mr Ellis has been involved is that since, subsequent to the issue of the civil restraint order against Mr Ellis, Mr Ellis himself has deposed papers including a witness statement signed by him in July of this year, in which he says I have helped these individuals bring this claim.
Despite this, Mr Ellis has apparently continued to “help” his friends, on the basis that he does not believe that the civil restraint order is valid against him.
Last week we reported that Mr Ellis had been physically ejected from the Royal Courts of Justice, either by two very large men (John Banks’ version) or 10 (we presume) smaller ones (Neelu’s version). Neelu calls this a “disappearance attempt”; we tend to think of it more as “please leave before you put yourself into contempt of court yet again”. Tomayto, tomahto.
In any case, it seems that the courts are now onto Mr Ellis’ and his friends’ tactics, and have deployed guards to ensure that they won’t continue wasting the court’s time. And about time too, we say.
