Robert Green’s Blog – Hollie Greig Campaign
Monday, 10 February 2014
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Radio 4 is repeating the programme on Friday morning at nine o`clock.
One can only assume that the BBC has carried out no meaningful research into this individual. If they had, even putting Hollie`s case to one side, it would have soon discovered that Angiolini has been severely criticised by the most senior members of the legal profession on a wide range of highly contentious issues. The BBC must have even overlooked its own televised broadcast on 7th July 2011, with the eminent Ian Hamilton QC. Around two minutes into the programme, Mr Hamilton describes Scotland`s human rights record as appalling, identifying primarily Angiolini as being responsible for this shocking state of affairs.
I have lodged a complaint with Sue Noakes at Radio 4, who`s number is 08455 191471.
No doubt, Jimmy Savile would have received a similarly sympathetic coverage from the BBC had he still been alive.
Meanwhile, Angiolini is to face cross-examination at Tim Rustige`s trial commencing 24th February in Aberdeen. Alex Salmond`s involvement in Hollie`s case by twice breaking the law in defiance of the Information Commissioner`s queries about the case will be brought up during the proceedings.
Rusty has, like me, been denied the jury trial he should have had, so that the identify of the presiding sheriff will be crucial, in the unlikely event of Rusty actually receiving a fair trial, As you know, in my trial, Edward Bowen concealed his ten-year relationship with cited defence witness Angiolini for the entire duration of the trial. Also, any sheriff who`s post has been recommended by Alex Salmond must be subject to a potential concern over conflict of interest, especially as the First Minister and
Angiolini share the same lawyer. It is also worth mentioning that the identity of the mysterious sheriff who was “taken ill” at the last minute before the initial trial date of 4th November has never been revealed – that is, if he ever existed at all.
It is truly bizarre that Rusty, who`s organisation Prisoners of Conscience International, has gallantly fought for human rights against the Marcos regime in the Philipines, to secure the release of Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma and for Nelson Mandela against the apartheid regime in South Africa, should now face persecution in Britain, by the similarly corrupt Salmond regime, purely on the say-so of the person most responsible for Scottish human rights abuses – Elish Angiolini!
Please stand by Rusty in any way that you can, as you bravely did for me and for Hollie.

A formal petition, brought about by Peter Cherbi, has been accepted by the Scottish Parliament with a special committee set up and having the full support of the Judicial Complaints Reviewer, Ms Moi Ali.
One of the main purposes of the petition was merely to ensure that members of the Scottish judiciary should have a duty to publicly disclose information about their interests that may be perceived to have a bearing on their impartiality when adjudicating cases.
The Lord President has reacted in a most unusual way, by not only flatly dismissing the proposals, but also even refusing to face questions from a properly constituted committee made up of representatives elected by the people of Scotland.
The Lord President`s position seems to be that he regards all his judicial colleagues to possess such a high level of integrity that it is entirely unwelcome and unnecessary to hold them to public account in any way. In my experience alone, I can assure him that Sheriff Patrick Davies, Lord Bannatyne and most certainly Sheriff Principal Edward Bowen fall well below the standards to which the Lord President refers. And does the Lord President think it appropriate that six of the colleagues he is trying to protect are members of the Violate Club?
You will probably be aware that Bill Roache, the Coronation Street actor, has been found not guilty of the serious sexual criminal charges laid against him. It is difficult to comment when not being involved in the proceedings, but it does appear that justice has finally been done and has seen to have been done. However, can anyone explain why Mr Roache was questioned, arrested, charged and brought before the court on the simple basis of verbal allegations from thirty or so years ago when Denis and Greg Mackie, with overwhelming impartial expert witness evidence against them, including that from the police and fully accepted by the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority, are never even questioned by the police?
Finally, you may recall that I have lodged a formal complaint to Cheshire Police about Sheriff Principal Edward Bowen`s racially discriminatory outburst at my trial after I had challenged him over the concealing of his ten-year relationship with cited defence witness Elish Angiolini from the court and from the defence. Even worse, Bowen, with others, is responsible for subsequently conspiring falsify solemn court audio evidence in order to delete the discriminatory remark. There is absolutely no question that Bowen has committed a criminal offence.
Despite the fact that the inaccurate transcript taken from the audio was produced by a Gloucestershire firm, Cheshire Police has decided that the matter must be dealt with by Police Scotland. Many of you who were present and heard Bowen`s comments that have now been omitted from the records have kindly offered to send me statements to confirm what they heard Bowen say. I would be most grateful if those of you who made the offer would be so good as to send me their brief witness statements. It is not required to comment on any other aspect of the case nor to offer an opinion. Just what you heard is enough and is all that is desired.
Some of you already have my home address, but if not, you can contact me on:-
Thank you in advance for your courage and integrity.

Here are further details of the status of some members of this exclusive and illustrious club, that also provides life-size dolls of children for the “entertainment” of these people.
It makes you sick, doesn`t it?
Four Sheriffs and partners
Two ex-partners of Sheriffs
Two High Court judges and partners
Two Procurator Fiscals and partners
Six ex -partners of Procurator Fiscals
Sixteen court staff
Thirty-seven staff from Scottish government
Seventeen primary school teachers.
The Scottish government does not seem shocked by this and even appeared to have been fairly relaxed a few years ago about the existence of this club, as you can see:-
Is it any wonder that Tim Rustige and I have been dragged before Scottish courts and imprisoned for trying to expose this endemic national corruption over child sex abuse?
Does it surprise anyone that in contrast, these three highly influential sex offenders have walked free?
Liam Gibson, of Gibson Marine, convicted but not imprisoned for possessing over 50,000 child pornographic images, just around the time I was jailed for trying to expose perverts like him.
Douglas Haggarty, technical head of the Scottish Legal Aid Board, who was found committing a sexual act with a boy in the toilets of a large Glasgow store. Of course, not only was Haggarty not sent to prison, but kept his highly -paid public post of trust and responsibility!
Stuart MacFarlane, a former deputy of Elish Angiolini, who was arrested when having sex with a female prostitute in a public place, put the two arresting police officers in hospital when he attacked them and was subsequently discovered to possess some 15,000 child pornographic images.
In a disgusting culture like this, is it also a puzzle to anyone why First Minister Alex Salmond has twice breached the law in defying the Information Commissioner over questions about his conduct in Hollie`s case?
I am not proud to say that serious problems of high level corruption also occur in Wales, with leader Carwyn Jones implicated in the shocking and moving Linda Lewis case. Terrible things have happened to this poor girl, but at least her champion, Kevin Edwards, finally obtained the courageous support necessary to blow the case open, from Assembly Member, David Rees, who deserves the support of every decent- minded person.
So far, in Scotland, every elected politician and almost every editor, with a few honourable exceptions, is too frightened of retribution from Alex Salmond`s solicitor, Peter Watson, of Levy & McRae, to dare to speak about or publish the facts about Hollie Greig`s case nor even tell the Scottish people about their leader`s legal transgressions.

It may well be that Scotland`s lamentable record of having the lowest conviction rate for rape in Europe results from the attitudes of the country`s leading figures. A symptom of their utter contempt for the plight of rape victims may lie in the existence of organisations such as the Violate Club, which is present in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
The membership of this club is heavily represented by members of the judiciary, senior police officers, lawyers, politicians and court officials. Its activities are every bit as repulsive as its name suggests. Amongst other things, members are treated to displays of simulated rape and sexual acts between humans and animals.
The identities of some of its members, I understand, would be of considerable interest to those who have been following Hollie`s case and indeed to the people of Scotland in general. Some have even been unwise enough to pay for the club`s facilities by credit card.

Just why do Police Scotland and the First Minister persist in protecting, amongst others, Denis Charles Mackie?
BBC TV Scotland broadcast a programme on 15th January, entitled “Lawyers behaving Badly”, which involved a contribution from that loyal Scot and dedicated supporter of Hollie Greig, Stuart Usher. Interesting articles from the Diary of Injustice dated 21st, 23rd and 27th January are well worth watching, too. With regard to comments about the BBC film, you will see a mention of a respected businessman and family man from Oban committing suicide after being wrongly advised to deal with a Glasgow law firm that acts for Alex Salmond. I understand that law firm to be Levy & McRae, who are also representing both Elish Angiolini in her case against me and yes, Police Scotland.
No wonder so many Scots, including editors, are terrified of Levy & McRae`s senior partner, Peter Watson.
As you will be aware, Tim Rustige (Rusty) faces trial in Aberdeen on 24th February , following fatuous complaints by the ubiquitous Angiolini. This weekend, the site “Rusty`s Skewed News” was temporarily taken down by Google as a result of a complaint by the Scottish government. When Google were pressed for more details they revealed that the complaint had been made by – Levy & McRae.
Meanwhile, rumours abound about possible laundering of large amounts of undeclared income by some solicitors in Scotland on behalf of wealthy and influential individuals, some of whom are thought to be certain members of the judiciary. The destinations largely thought to feature are the British Virgin Islands, Jersey and the Cayman Islands.
My complaint about the conduct of Lord Bannatyne`s perverse decision in favour of Angiolini, dismissing my equitable right a proper defence, along with concealment of likely sources of conflict of interest, has been taken up by the European Convention on Human Rights, who have provided me with an official file number and invited me to furnish full details of the case. I have also formally complained about Bannatyne`s conduct to the Judicial Office in Scotland and am awaiting a response.
A hearing about my case is to be heard on Wednesday 29th January and I have requested that in the circumstances, Lord Bannatyne should recuse himself while complaints about his conduct are being examined. Moreover, as the Scottish state has forced me to have to try to defend myself, I demand full details of any replacement for Lord Bannatyne, as I require an assurance that no grounds exist for cause for concern over conflict of interest. I am unable to be present in Edinburgh on Wednesday.
Returning to the Diary of Injustice`s 27 January publication, it seems that the Lord President may have misled, about his own responsibilities, the MSPs enquiring about the lack of judicial accountability. It has been discovered that the Lord President sits on a Board, along with Lord Bannatyne!
P.S. If you wish to see the BBC Scotland programme that provides some indication of the fundamental weakness of the justice system with regard to corrupt lawyers, the links are here.

In it he repeated the ridiculous mantra that a “thorough investigation” into Hollie`s allegations had taken place. Officer Richardson had clearly not bothered to check the facts before putting his name to such nonsense. Police evidence given on oath at my trial confirmed that not one of the 22 named alleged abusers of Hollie, whom the police have already described unequivocally as a victim, had ever been questioned, or had their computers examined, following Hollie`s statement to the police on 8th September 2009, which I witnessed. Additionally, the letter failed to address the fact that Grampian Police had withheld two crucial medical documents supporting Hollie from the Prosecutor.
The police officer who made this staggering confession in court was the one who had interviewed Hollie , DC Lisa Jane Evans. Of course, Hollie`s claims had been fully supported by a wide range of expert witness statements that are in the public domain. At the police interview, Hollie conducted herself throughout three and a half hours with astonishing courage and composure and despite her speech impediment and her recounting of horrifying ordeals, made her statements with impressive clarity and detail.
DC Evans` admission was supported by nine of those accused by Hollie, who was accepted as a truthful and competent witness, whom the prosecution had chosen to testify against me. All nine confirmed that the police had never interviewed them over Hollie`s strongly and professionally supported allegations made to DC Evans.
Significantly,the complainants against me did not include Denis and Greg Mackie, the two individuals against whom the expert evidence was overwhelmingly strong.
The nine who gave evidence in open court, with no reporting restrictions, are as follows.
Sheriff Graham Buchanan – described by Hollie to DC Evans as “a big lawyer”.
Sylvia Major – cousin of Denis Mackie, who is now scheduled to testify against Timothy Rustige at the trial on 24th February in Aberdeen, accompanied by Elish Angiolini.
Carol Low – her name was mispronounced as “Kyle” by Hollie
Jillian Mackie – Denis Mackie`s sister-in-law. At that time, she had recently been a key witness as a friend of convicted murderer Malcolm Webster at his trial.
Andrew Young – former head teacher at Beechwood Special School, where Hollie was a pupil. Mr Young blatantly perjured himself at the trial when questioned by defence QC Andy Lamb about medical reports on Hollie submitted by the school medical officer, Dr Paul Carter. Mr Young admitted to the court that he had resided at the home of Sylvia and Terry Major.
Helen Macdonald – Hollie`s former carer.
Win Dragon – also due to give evidence against Tim Rustige, along with Elish Angiolini.
Of course, none of this by itself can possibly confirm the guilt of those named. What we do know is that not one of them was even questioned by the police, let alone have their computers examined, the normal police procedure in such circumstances.
That is all.
Although this cannot be included as evidence, the police and authorities would do well to heed the words of one of Scotland`s most prominent lawyers, Peter Anderson of Simpson & Marwick, who represents both Sheriff Buchanan and Denis Mackie. Mr Anderson is adamant that Sheriff Buchanan is innocent of all allegations, but has written to me to say that he thinks Denis and Greg Mackie may well have sexually abused Hollie and that others may well have abused her too. It is good to find a lawyer in Scotland who can not only be loyal to his clients, but be brutally honest when appropriate, especially when a small disabled girl has been raped.
Returning to Officer Richardson, what was most extraordinary about the letter is that he holds the rank of Deputy Chief Constable. This means that in the absence of the Chief Constable, the women, children and disabled of Scotland will have to rely on him for their safety and protection from sexual attack.
Now, having vigorously responded to his letter in a way that you might expect, DCC Richardson can reply in two ways.
Either he can admit his mistake and accept that no adequate investigation of Hollie`s claims has ever taken place that could be remotely described as “thorough”, or he can say that he does not think those accused of rape need to be questioned at all, even when the accuser`s claims are supported by extensive expert evidence.
Again, Police Scotland, just who are you really protecting?

So many people, seeing the published expert witness evidence on Hollie`s case for the first time, ask me how it is possible for the police not to carry out the most basic of investigations and to even try to justify this inaction . They also ask why so few MPs or MSPs have the integrity to publicly comment or assist in this shocking case.
The last question is easy to answer in one word – blackmail!
It is exactly why none of our elected representatives actually stood up to expose Savile and Cyril Smith whilst these two monsters were alive.
Of course, there are the customary threats of compromising promotion prospects, etc, but it is mainly to do with our MPs and MSPs being warned about past indiscretions, rather than outright crimes, such as the occasion in Amsterdam several years ago, for example. What would happen if your wife and children were to hear about it?
This kind of low-level threat is normally sufficient to send our esteemed representatives scuttling for cover. The fundamental message from the powers-that-really-be is “Keep your mouth shut about exposing child sex abuse by powerful people if you know what`s good for you”. It is the language of the gangster. It is the modus operandi of the thug.
Meanwhile, our children and the disabled continued to be trafficked, raped and tortured and possibly even worse, whilst a spineless and compliant government looks the other way. It is up to all of us to make this issue central to the 2015 General Election, Nothing, but nothing, can possibly be more important than ensuring the future safety of our children.
Whilst governments in the United Kingdom continue to acquiesce in these terrible crimes, we have to rely on the bravery of people like Bill Maloney.
In Scotland, some so-called opponents of Alex Salmond worry about his acknowledged cunning political skills in respect of the coming independence referendum. This site has no comment to make on this issue, which I believe to be a matter for Scotland to decide. It is Alex Salmond as a person, rather than his political views, that ought to be a matter of concern for the Scottish people.
All the media have to do is to merely republish these headlines from respected legal magazine The Firm in 2011.
Exclusive: Information Commissioner forces government response to Hollie Greig inquiries
First Minister in missing records riddle over Hollie Greig abuse allegations.
Then the people of Scotland would then be in a position to hold an informed opinion about the character and priorities of the current leader.
