There appears to be a growing number of people who strongly believe the Rule of Law has broken down over here and that we have a politicised and corrupt Judicial System and there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to support this belief.
The former Senator, in this interview, gives us just a couple of examples of this anecdotal evidence and spells out, in his view, what translates as "The Rule Of Law" and how he, and others, believe it has broken down in Jersey.
There has also, since the time of this interview, been growing speculation that Mr Syvret is the subject of a Super-Injunction, or something similar. Unfortunately he is being extremely tight lipped about this and despite some pretty hard badgering he will neither confirm nor deny it. We have been aware of something going on since last Thursday 16th August when he asked for Citizen's Media to be at the Royal Square at 6:30pm. We were only granted this interview on the proviso we didn't ask him, either on or off camera, just what THIS is/was all about.
Knowing there are a number of Bloggers (Jersey's only independent media) that are investigating this we are sure it is only a matter of time before the truth is revealed. In the meantime we are asking the questions (The State Media won't) has the Rule Of Law broken down in Jersey? Do we have a politicised and corrupt Judicial System? Should the UK step in? Is (as Mr. Syvret believes) Jersey more akin to Putin's Russia than a 21st century "Democracy?" Will Mr. Syvret's action against the Justice Secretary be successful? What are the implications if it is? What are the implications if it isn't? Will Jersey's State Media Report on the tabling of Mr. Syvret's action against the UK Justice Secretary? Why, after Reporting on the prosecution case against the Former Police Chief, won't the State Media Report on the defence case?
We explore that final question in part two (coming soon) of this interview.
