What Happened to Innocent Until Proven Guilty?


According to The Human Rights Act 1998 we are “Innocent until PROVEN guilty” and that guilt MUST be proved by a court of law where we have the absolute right to defend our rights and innocence.

Human rights

We have a right to a fair trial and no punishment without law, if accused of a crime we have the right to hear and defend evidence against us in a court of law. In Article 6 of The Human Rights Act 1998 it says “In the determination of civil rights and obligations or of any criminal charge against a person everyone is entitled to a fair and public hearing within a reasonable time by an independent and impartial tribunal established by law”, so WHY THE HELL ARE THE PAPERS SLATING PEOPLE THAT HAVE MERELY BEEN QUESTIONED ABOUT AN “ALLEGED” CRIME????????????? Just today the media has posted stories that Neil “Dr” Fox has been arrested for alleged historic sexual offences and the papers are already trying to label him a paedophile and sexual predator!!!

Article 6 also sets out a number of specific rights which apply to criminal defendants, such as the presumed innocence until after trial and conviction, The right to be represented by a solicitor / Barrister of our own choice and the right to cross examine witnesses against us. Once again the question comes up; “How can a person have a fair trial if the case against them has been spread throughout the media prior to trial”? Of course it’s impossible as the jurors of the trial and members of the public will all have been ‘brainwashed’ by the press and their garbage!!

Surely The Leveson Enquiry should have put a stop to all of this media broadcasting and publishing stuff before trial shouldn’t it?? But it hasn’t of course!!

The Gutter Press love to slate someone and put their name through the mud long before any trial and certainly well before any conviction. Even when a court have heard the trial and either a jury have pronounced the accused “Not Guilty” or if the verdict has been that of “Guilty” then the judge has passed sentence the press will either say “Oh he was guilty, but the CPS didn’t present the case well enough to secure a conviction” or they will say “The sentence wasn’t long enough”. What the hell is wrong with the media and gutter press readers?? The courts declare a person “Not Guilty” and discharge them or “Guilty” and pass sentence and still they bang on!! I hereby ask that the media should be silenced when someone has been arrested until a trial has heard the case in open court thus the accused persons might just get a fair trial and the correct verdict!


Let justice be done without interruption or unreasonable influence then have the grace to accept a verdict regardless of what it may be once a trial is over, that’s my feeling
