On Wednesday, 20th July 2011, we met Austin Mitchell MP first in the cafeteria in Portcullis House and then in Committee Room “O” for “Orange” or “Ominous”.
We met to discuss the scope and need for charities to support victims of fraud and white collar crimes such as Victims Anonymous that I have envisaged and to fund a Helpline that Maggie Tuttle is keen to run.
I, Sabine K McNeill had invited Austin Mitchell MP who has sponsored our meetings at Westminster for many years,
Brad Meyer who has helped LOTS of victims and recently launched Help for Litigants in Person, published Vol. 1 of The Forensics of Legal Fraud and recorded the videos of our meetings in Westminster. He uses technology to enhance collaboration between people from different ends of a spectrum.
Paulette H Cooper wrote Vol. 2 of The Forensics of Legal Fraud about her horrendous experiences by a long list of white collar criminals.
Chris has a lot of experience with charities and has been most supportive of Paulette in her ordeals and attempts to get justice and compensation.
Maurice J Kirk BVScis the most chronic of all Litigants in Person I have ever met.
David Patterson who has a lot of political experience and helped many victims of white collar crimes and
Maggie Tuttle who had invited
David Ronson who had accepted to be a Trustee
and Barry K Millar who has a lot of experience setting up charities and had already prepared Objects and Activities together with Paulette and Chris.
When we mentioned Private Prosecutions to Austin as the potential Achilles Heel in the legal establishment, he turned them into “Public Protection”.
Since our meeting Paul Randle-Jolliffe has launched a Private Prosecution Service, together with a retired barrister and a constable.
Austin accepted to be our ‘patron saint’ hovering over our activities.
Since these various facets and services embrace a lot more than a helpline, we felt comfortable with the Public Protection Network as our common denominator.
As I’ve been calling myself a networker ever since I discovered the term in the 70s, I was particularly pleased and would formulate our objectives as:
- protect the general public, or in legal terms, the Normal Man or Reasonable Person, from institutionalised white collar crimes
- by appealing to the Court of Public Opinion through Publicity Online
- and by using Private Prosecutions and other legal undertakings to support victims of fraud and white collar crimes.
