The P19 Amd Amd 21


Further to our P19 Eleven we have some of the same faces.

These are our "representatives" who voted against Deputy Tadier's Amendment to Deputy Hill's Amendment to P19/2011. Deputy Tadier's Amendment simply asks "Was a consistent and impartial approach taken when deciding on which cases to prosecute; and was the process free from political influence or interference at any level?”.


Deputy Tadier's Amendment and Report can be read HERE Senator Le Gresley's Proposition, along with Deputy Hill's Amendment can be read HERE.

Senator Terry Le Sueur.

Senator Phillip Ozouf.

Deputy Anne Pryke.

Connetable John Refault.

Senator Alan Maclean.

Senator Ian Le Marquand.

Deputy James Reed.

Deputy Ian Gorst.

Deputy Angela Jeune.

Deputy Eddie Noel.

Connetable Michael Jackson.

Connetable John Gallichan.

Connetable Silvanus Yates.

Deputy Anne Dupre.

Senator Sarah Ferguson.

Deputy Ben Fox.

Deputy Kevin Lewis.

Connetable Deidre Mezbourian.

Deputy John Le Fondre.

Senator Freddie Cohen.

Senator Ben Shenton.

Remember the wording "Was a consistent and impartial approach taken when deciding on which cases to prosecute; and was the process free from political influence or interference at any level?”.

Why would these 21 politicians want to vote against that? Surely they understand that "justice" has to be "seen" to be done..........Don't they? If the island's population don't have confidence in the judicial system then that is a huge problem. 

Thankfully the Amendment was successful, with 27 voting in favour of it. But doesn't this give the Council of Ministers and Law Office(r)s a bit of a dilemma?

If the Law Office(r)s are going to be under investigation/review by the Committee of Inquiry then won't that make them (the Law Office(r)s) conflicted in giving any advice, legal or otherwise, to the Council of Ministers concerning anything to do with the Committee of Inquiry?

  1. VFC, the big smells at the top are going to pull every stunt in the book to stop this one being investigated.

    If they can't stop the investigation, they will stop it being investigated impartially, or independently.

    If they cannot get their own "our chap" in there somewhere, then they will do a Napier special.

    Failing those three primary options, God knows how far they will go, or what they will do! If this is investigated properly, they are finished.

    My advice to Bob and Monty is to go out and find a trusty lawyer to oversee this from behind the scenes. We know what is coming, it's just a case of how, and when!!!

  2. So Senator Ozouf mentioned his remaining consistent a couple of times in his COI speech.

    Would he be thinking if he uses the word a few times We would not need to accept Deputy Tadier's Amendment ''Was a consistent and impartial approach taken when deciding on which case to prosecute.''

  3. You would believe consistency and impartiality it the one thing they would all strive for.

    But then again in the good old Jersey way Its more a case of if your face fits the Amd 21 can sort it.

  4. Freddy Cohen used the community relations trust as a stepping stone into politics. I wonder what his ex colleagues at the crt make of his vote? Doesnt say much for his attitude towards community relations does it?
