Stuart Syvret Released from Prison.

Former senior Jersey Politician, and Health Minister, Stuart Syvret was today released from prison after serving approximately two months for Data Protection/contempt of court charges.

Mr. Syvret who in 2007 stood up in Jersey's Parliament, while still Health Minister, and said.

Senator Syvret in 2007 as Health Minister

“I have serious concerns, to be honest, about the whole child protection, child welfare standards of performance of Jersey, not just within my own department, Social Services and the Children’s Service, but across the board. I am aware of a number of issues, this being one of them, a number of cases, a number of incidents that lead me more and more strongly to the conclusion that we are failing badly in this area. I am probably going to be seeking to initiate a major independent review into the whole sphere of child welfare, child protection in Jersey. So if you are asking me honestly, do I believe the performance of certain senior individuals within this field and of the departments generally is acceptable, no, it is not.”

Did this statement trigger the political downfall of the former Senator? How many other Data Protection offences have warranted a 10 strong police squad, without a search warrant, turning over a place of residence in what has been described as "a fishing expedition?"

There will be an in-depth and exclusive interview coming up with Mr. Syvret at the beginning of 2012. 

Team Voice.

  5. What rhubarb and he isn't even in politics anymore!

    The reason for his imprisonment is pretty clear to me from this link so why not him?

    Thats just plain custard. I love the trigger word "SVRET" it awakes the dead. That is a judgement not the evidence that was heard but more on that at a later date.

    Onwards we go. Cant wait for 2012.

    Can't you even spell his name right? If anybody is getting excited about his release its you, telling Twitter you're fighting in 2012 and then you can't even tell people who this fight is with without getting huffy.

    Funny you said the same thing at the end of 2010 and we still don't know what you are on about and I bet it will be the same for 2013.

  17. Welcome back Stuart!!

    Bumped into him in town this afternoon, and he looked really, really well (albeit a bit wet!).

    As I said to him - upwards and onwards, and with a lot of supporters behind you.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You can count his loyal supporters on one hand these days and what's happend to the transcript of his testimony with the BDO scrutiny report, or is that full of half truths as well?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Great outfit. How did he get it inside? Did he go in wearing it? Or is this standard prison uniform what with Jersey being in the dark ages still?

    But look out for more stitch-ups from the Establishment in 2012. 'Big Trev' must be next if he keeps on speaking up for us peasants against the private club of tax dodgers that runs this rock for their own interests.

    Happy New Year.

  23. Follow you on Twitter RS? Twitter is a news mechanism for exclusives with original up to date news items either missed or not found out by the tabloids yet. Stuff like the USA killing of Bin Laden or a celebrity scandal before Hello Magazine. So where does your Twitter postings fall into this new service? VFC posts sometimes do but the Coronation Street Twitter page has more up to date scoops and gossip than anything you ever seem to write on Twitter and your cover up talk is plain boring. For 2012 go out and do it and stop talking about it.

  28. Good gag. But where oh where are our 51 elected reps?
    Have none of them an ounce of humour even if we cannot expect them to share two minutes of their oh so precious time on this case.
    Of course there are other unpopular cases but this guy was a member of the States club for 20 years. Does it really mean so little to our elected reps - what is the problem? OK he has called you all gangsters and perhaps worse - maybe some are acting behind the scenes - but is there really nothing of concern in the issues that he has raised? Like Maurice Kirk, Stuart Syvret is an intelligent man but why is he driven to such extreme measures in order to make a point. What is the missing link?

  29. There certainly is some excitement around. A little over 24 hours after publishing this posting is already one of the most read of 2011.

  30. There goes old grumpy puss 'Tom Gruchy' again blaming everyone else for the problems of the world but him.

    Most of our States members are gormless muffins I could not agree more. But a tiny minority do do their best to stand up for what is right.

    My question is when will we see old grumpy 'Tom' giving us the chance to vote for him in an election and putting his neck on the chopping block? Seems to me like if you can't do better or even as well you should shut up and give your butt a chance?

  31. Its been revisited a lot through Facebook. This video has been spread around. But one question was raised on Facebook and that is would Stuart Syvret be prepared to take a lie detector test on all his claims of corruption which people simply do not swallow anymore? A Polygraph test under controlled environment from a man that claims so much about people would be good?

  33. "But where oh where are our 51 elected reps?"

    I suppose they are all in the same place as the 650 UK MPs who were all written to at least 10 times about the secret family courts having American paedophiles influencing their decisions. I know that because I was the lady who wrote all the letters and got quite a few replies back. Most of the replies started "Due to Parliamentary convention ..., some of the replies were more "I know, it's bad, but what can anyone do about it", but one or two of them were more like "So what, it's none of my business!".

    Perhaps there is a little room where all these people get sucked into, a room where they can avoid dealing with the hard stuff that they don't even want to think about. I've never been inside but I understand there is a room like that in the Houses of Parliament, I think it has a sign on the outside of it, BAR.

  34. The paedos did a great job smashing up Stuarts life and career, just as they have successfully destroyed so many victims of child abuse who have dared to raise a whimper about the sick way they were treated as children.

    I'm so angry about this. I have written so many letters, its like banging your head against a brick wall.

    I cling onto my faith in God like a lifering, some days I just think Where are you God??? How can you stand by band let this happen???

    We're none of us going away. I don't care if I am the only one left standing, I am furious about the crappy way I and other victims of Pindown/Grand Prix and the whistleblowers like Stuart have been treated. I won't go away and I won't shut up either. I dont care how many times I get called a "nutter", I am just going to carry on complaining about this now, its disgusting, seeing who is being honoured this year makes me want to throw up! I hope God shows what he thinks of that list, I really do. I wish he would do something to show what he thinks of that rotton stinking list. I hope it thunders all day long on that day.

  35. Tom Gruchy

    There is a lot of truth in what you say and it has bothered me for a long time. It goes to the very centre of the average jersey politician. Yes we have some excellent ones but the majority are just deadwood.

    The majority allow what has happened to Stuart Syvret for the simple reason it is Stuart Syvret.

    I thought your comment was fair. When I have sat in on Stuarts court cases I always turn to the person next to me and repeat the same thing "why isn't there any states members sitting in here and listening to what's going on"

    There are some very decent politicians but not enough

    For me it doesn't matter if you are Left, Centre or Right

    It what you are as a person that counts

  36. Tom Gruchy makes a very good point. Stuart Syvret, whilst a politician, was raided by a ten strong "Police Squad" at the home he shared with another politician where personal data was seized included was personal data between himself and his constituents, this was done without a search warrant.

    People, politicians included, should now have the fear that any private correspondence between a democratically elected member and their constituents can be snatched/read/copied by the police and they don't even need a search warrant.

    There are some good politicians doing what they can to bring about some accountability for some of the atrocities that are allowed to go on but there should be many more. They are of the mistaken belief that what has been done to Stuart Syvret cannot happen to them. Furthermore they are of the mistaken belief that this is all acceptable in a modern day "Democracy."

    The vast majority of our politicians need to wake up and smell the coffee. That, I believe is the point Tom Gruchy was making and IMO he is correct.

    You show an astounding lack of knowledge of how Twitter is used by the vast majority of the millions signed up to it.

    Maybe if you expanded your horizons a little further than celebrity scandals and the Coronation Street page you'd be more enlightened in that respect?

  39. now stuart has paid for his apparent crimes is it time now for justice for the victims of abuse, the prison would be full to the brim with politions ex and present, civil servants ex and present and well paid states employees past and presents that comitted abuses, covered them up and are still trying to burty the truths justice for all and no one should be ammune even if it uncovers corruption and lies , go on stuart ur reputation is cleaner than theirs ever will be after all the only dirt they could dig up on u was a petty driving offence and data protection u hold ur head up high

  42. MG boy racer has not been doing his homework or the petrol has rotted his brain cells.
    "Tom" in 20th century form stood as a potential Senator and Deputy - largely on a Human Rights platform - and was not elected of course. He has been campaigning and lobbying for more than 40 years in Jersey on social reform issues and it would be interesting to know what the motor freak has been doing all these years......

  43. A reader says:

    "Its been revisited a lot through Facebook. This video has been spread around.

    Yes - I certainly would be perfectly content to take a lie detector test - about all of the scandals and examples of corruption, abuse, perversions of justice and cover-ups that I have exposed.

    An interesting question is, of course, would the Jersey oligarchs and their various vassals?

    I think we can be reasonably certain that they would not be so willing - given the extraordinary lengths a number of them have gone to to prevent being called as witnesses and cross-examined under oath.

    William Bailhache for example.

    Obviously, as anyone who has followed the various court hearings will know, I have given my evidence under oath - and would, in fact, have said a great deal more besides - had I not been prevented from expounding the available evidence.

    When it comes to being willing to state the truth - to stand by what you say - it's Jersey's Mafiosos who have it all to do.

    But the issue is, in many ways, a great deal simpler than the need to take any person's word in respect of the corruptions of the Jersey oligarchy. We need not rely upon the testimony of one or two people - because there is so much hard, documented evidence now available.

    The key, stark facts - of the breakdown in he proper, objective rule of law in Jersey are published - and there to be seen and understood by any thinking person.

    Stuart.

  47. "Is this man not being abused by the system for exposing the truth -shameful !"

    Yes he is, and he's not the only one. I don't want to take anything away from what Stuart has done, he's a brave man who has stood like a rock in the face of some of the most disgusting bullying and intimidation ever, but he's not the only one who is suffering abuse for exposing the truth. There have been victims of abuse bullied just like he is being bullied. This has been going on for a long time, what Stuart has done is make it highly visible. They can get away with treating ordinary people like this, but they can hardly brush their disgusting treatment of the Father of the House under the carpet! Stuart has made the invisible visible!

  48. "I think this is so tragic, Morris Kirk springs to mind."

    Yes I can see one similar thread, although Morris was never a Guernsey States Deputy and was never fighting on any public issues, he did like to publicise his fight but for no other reason than to prove himself right for his own sake.

    Stuart's aims are on a far higher level and many of those against him have a lot to loose.

    Perhaps the writer of the above post is one of them!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Maurice Kirk stood for the Guernsey States and was narrowly defeated.
    Contrary to the comments here he also inititiated several public campaigns such as that for a proper legal aid scheme in Guernsey.
    Unfortunately the many people who lobby for decades without any official backing are so easily diregarded and forgotten but they are just as important as those who grab the publicity whilst in public office.
    In the end we are all just footnotes in history but it is interesting - and sad - that still nobody has come forward with an offer of any cash to keep Emille Collins bronze portrait bust in the Town Hall.
    If no firm offer is made this portrait will probably return to the UK.
    Do we value those who fight for us all or not - or is it only when the oli's give their official blessing?

  50. [Maurice Kirk stood for the Guernsey States and was narrowly defeated.]

    That is correct, he was NEVER a States Member.

    [Contrary to the comments here he also inititiated several public campaigns such as that for a proper legal aid scheme in Guernsey.]

    They were not public interest issues of corruption! Nor could he ever be considered to be a political prisoner.

    My point was: Stuart Syvret is dealing with a far more serious issue and has been unfairly treated!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Maurice Kirk considers that he has been a political person and prisoner. You should bear in mind that he has undertaken severel serious hunger strikes and raised many matters with MPs and other groups in the UK or elsewhere.
    Have you ever looked at the South Wales' police own film of them beating him up in broad daylight stopped at the traffic lights? His campaigns against corrupt police, Crown Officers, judges, lawyers, political reps and more have ensured that he has maintained political campaigns over decades.
    Of course there are large parts of his own personal grievances woven into the campaign fabric - who is any different on that score? Many political reformist careers start with an unhappy personal experience.

    I have helped MK represent himself before the Privy Council and local tribunals besides video recording him in recent years. I have even helped whilst he repaired a damaged cat on the operating table. He is his own worst enemy on many occasions but if you don't have an extensive knowledge of his case from A for Alderney onwards then I suggest you start by studying his kirk flying vet blog site - to gain one.
