LEGAL MAFIA 7

80% of hacking was by lawyers(law society plants) and major firms... and the Leveson inquiry knew all about it
AS WE HAVE BEEN EXPOSING FOR A VERY LONG TIME LAWYERS BEHIND EVERYTHING CRIMINAL AND CONTROL OF THE MEDIA AND PROTECTING THEIR VAST HOUSING REPOSSESSION RACKET VIA MONOPOLY THEFT. MEN IN DIVORCE CASES KNOW THE EASE WITH WHICH LAWYERS CAN ACCESS ALL THEIR PERSONAL FINANCIAL DATA BEFORE THEY ARE STRIPPED BARE

  • Vast majority of phone hacking was not carried out by newspapers
  • Secret report was given to Leveson inquiry but they did not act on it
  • Private detective urged clients to 'overcome any moral hang-ups'


  • Phone hacking and other illegal information gathering was mostly committed on behalf of law firms, telecom companies and insurers – not by journalists, it has emerged. The Serious Organised Crime Agency knew that businesses other than journalists hired criminals to access people’s voicemails six years ago, but did nothing to intervene, according to a report by the agency.

    One of the main ‘hackers’ involved in the practice said 80 per cent of companies hiring criminals to hack phones were law firms, wealthy individuals and insurance companies, according to the report. One of the individuals was ‘a celebrity who broadcasts to millions every week’. Just 20 per cent of hackers’ clients were in the media – which came under fierce scrutiny from the Leveson inquiry, costing taxpayers £6million. The other corrupt practices mentioned in the report included live phone interceptions, police corruption, computer hacking and perverting the course of justice.

    SOCA’s findings were privately presented to the Leveson inquiry in 2012, but the report was not made public or included in the Leveson Report. Labour MP Tom Watson said: ‘What is astonishing about this whole murky affair is that SOCA had knowledge of massive illegal invasions of privacy in the newspaper industry – but also in the supply chains of so-called blue-chip companies. He said: ‘I believe they are sitting on physical evidence that has still not been disclosed fully to forensic investigators at the Metropolitan Police. The law should also be rigorously applied to other sectors that have got away with it.’

    Police investigations reviewed by SOCA found that 20 per cent of calls in the reports were being listened to by private detectives in real time. The report, seen by The Independent newspaper, said a ‘telephone interception specialist manufactured several devices which were physically attached to the target’s landline at the relevant signal box by a British Telecom-trained telecommunications engineer’.

    A document entitled The Blagger’s Manual was unearthed by another police inquiry. It gave advice on accessing personal details held by companies, banks, HM Revenue and Customs, councils, utility providers and the NHS. An extract said: ‘It is probably a good idea to overcome any moral hang-ups you might have about “snooping” or “dishonesty”. The fact is that through learning acts of technical deception, you will be performing a task which is not only of value to us or our client, but to industry as a whole.’

    The source who was aware of the report, codenamed Project Riverside said clients who hired illegal private investigators included a major telecoms company, a celebrity broadcaster, a media personality and a businessman negotiating a £500million takeover. But the most prolific clients were law firms, particularly those involved in lucrative marriage and fraud litigation. The criminals, who were paid as much as £14,000 to hack phones and track bank transactions, were found to be ‘developing and cultivating useful relationships’ through ‘socialising with law enforcement personnel’.

    Despite the trade in criminality identified in the report, which dates back to 2006, none of the offenders hired to perform the illegal snooping was charged with criminal offences until after the phone hacking scandal. Labour MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the home affairs select committee, said: ‘I am deeply concerned about these revelations. I will be seeking an explanation from SOCA as to why this was not told to the committee when we took evidence from them about the issue of private investigators.

    ‘It is important we establish how widespread this practice was and why no action was taken to stop what amounted to criminal activity.’ A SOCA spokesman told The Independent: ‘SOCA produced a confidential report in 2008 on the issue of licensing the private investigation industry. This report remains confidential and SOCA does not comment on leaked documents.’

    The Knights Templar / freemasons / zionists use the Temple as the main control centre for the bar associations across the globe for lawyers. This is where the legal mafia conspire to manipulate laws to fleece men in a worldwide scam and with total monopoly over the buying and selling (stealing) of men's property.

  • TASERED BUCKINGHAM PALACE PROTESTER WAS SCREWED BY LAWYER
    COPS TOLD HIM THE FRAUD WAS A CIVIL MATTER. THERE ARE THOUSANDS SCREWED BY LAWYERS EVERY YEAR AND TOLD THE SAME THING

    The businessman Tasered outside Buckingham Palace wanted to appeal directly to the Queen after claiming no one would help him when nearly £170,000 was stolen from him, his family said.

    Talhat Rehman, 54, who unsuccessfully stood as a Tory councillor in 2002, appeared in court after allegedly waving a foot-long knife and a smaller knife and threatening to kill himself. He was arrested after jumping over barriers during the Changing the Guard ceremony just before noon on Sunday. Rehman suggested he would harm himself if police came close, but an officer shot him with a 50,000-volt Taser. The Queen and Prince Philip were at Sandringham at the time. Yesterday, the grandfather’s family told the Mail that he was in a ‘desperate situation’ after losing his business and savings and had been driven to despair after police refused to help him. They claim a solicitor, who has since been disqualified from practising for a year, stole £168,000 from him in a property deal.

    Rehman, from Harrow, North-West London, lost his business and savings as a result and is desperate for justice, but had been told by police that he should pursue a civil case. The family said the landlord for the building in which they run their butcher’s shop tried to repossess the premises three weeks ago. Rehman and his son had to sell their wives’ gold jewellery to pay the bills. His son Kassum Raja, 30, of Harrow, said: ‘My father’s solicitor stole £168,000 from him and when he took her to court she closed down the firm. He went to the police, but they said it would be a huge bundle of work for them and they told us we would have to go private. We had to hire solicitors, but it was very expensive.

    ‘He was in a desperate situation, so he went to his Queen. He said he was going to deliver the letter to Buckingham Palace or he would kill himself.’ Rehman’s family said he had spent £30,000 on legal fees trying to recover his money. Rehman, who has five children and 18 grandchildren, had never had mental health problems until he lost the money, his family added.

    His son, who now runs the butcher’s shop in Kingsbury, said: ‘Since yesterday, the whole family’s been under stress. My four kids couldn’t believe it. ‘One was so stressed I didn’t send her to school today. They can’t get over the way the police shot him and the way he fell down. He’s a heart patient and a diabetic, but I know there wasn’t much option.’ Rehman’s father Abdul Rehman, 81, the trustee of an Islamic centre in Kilburn, said: ‘The police don’t give a damn. If someone steals money, the police should punish them. But they haven’t taken any action.’

    A police source said officers had investigated Rehman’s allegations of fraud, but the case was closed due to lack of evidence and he was advised to pursue it as a civil matter. Yesterday, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard that Rehman needed a psychiatric assessment after a document compiled by a mental health nurse raised concerns.

    Rehham is charged with two counts of possessing a bladed weapon in public and one of affray. He was remanded in custody and will appear in court today. The solicitor did not respond to phone calls yesterday.

    HOW TO DEAL WITH SCUMBAG LAWYERS
    CLICK LINKS FOR THE FINER DETAIL

    Hello to all my good friends at XXXXX,

    This is Peter-Andrew: Nolan© I bet you all thought that I had gone away. But no….I am still around.

    It is now time to deal with you criminals at XXXXX. For those of you not familiar with me? You might want to read this book HERE.
    I most especially recommend this video as mandatory viewing. HERE

    Over 18 months ago I sent this Lawful Notice to XXXXX and I warned ALL employees that if they did not cease and desist in their criminal activities they would face me one day. Today is that day. If you were not given a copy of this? Complain to XXXXX or XXXXX. You can see from the link that the faxes were delivered to XXXXX fax machines as your email address were not public at the time. HERE

    Now. You each find yourselves in a difficult position because of your criminal activity of aiding and abetting known criminals, XXXXX and XXXXX. You see, your colleagues at ASIO gave me a good idea. Your colleagues at ASIO have been creating hate sites for about 2 years now and they have been slandering me all over the web. They call me a child abuser, a wife beater, a dead beat dad. You name it they have slandered me with it. Of late they are even trying to call me a terrorist. They are doing this because they are trying to damage my business.

    So..you see. I thought to myself. Well? If these criminals like to slander people to try and damage their business. then surely under “do unto others” they will be perfectly happy to have the TRUTH told about them to damage THEIR business, right? I mean. I am SURE none of you will object to me doing this because your colleagues at ASIO are doing exactly the same to me, right? That’s fair, right? Maybe you people might have talked to XXXXX and reminded her that according to her web site HERE

    Our values:

    Committed to service – The APS is professional, objective, innovative and efficient, and works collaboratively to achieve the best results for the Australian community and the Government.

    Ethical – The APS demonstrates leadership, is trustworthy, and acts with integrity, in all that it does.

    Respectful – The APS respects all people, including their rights and their heritage.

    Accountable – The APS is open and accountable to the Australian community under the law and within the framework of Ministerial responsibility.

    Impartial – The APS is apolitical and provides the Government with advice that is frank, honest, timely and based on the best available evidence.

    Only trouble is that my video has been with the attorney general for near three years now and the matter has not been dealt with. This is lousy service, unethical, disrespectful, unaccountable and sexist and discriminatory. XXXXX has managed to violate even single value that is published as the values of her department. Amazing really. And if I look at the staff list at XXXXX? What do I find? Oh, surprise, surprise the VAST majority are women. So since you women like your fellow women to provide such lousy service? I am sure you have no problem at all in what I am doing. It is a pretty sure thing that once we are done with this rubbish women will NEVER be allowed in high office again. Just look at the mess you women are making when you are the PM, the GG and the AG. Australia is a disaster and women are on deck. And you women in the legal fraternity? You say nothing about the crimes against fathers.

    So. Given that the AG is the highest officer in the land as far as you legal criminals go? I am sure that NONE of you are going to complain about my proposal. Accept my proposal or deal with me. I believe in freedom of choice. Our Crimes Against Fathers site is now VERY popular. It has thousand upon thousands of links all over the place. People who have their names placed into it have their CAF entry come up on the first page of search results usually. If you do not believe me? Just cut and paste “XXXXX” into google and see what happens. Now. Lawyers get business based on advertising and word of mouth. And today? Every man who is going to hire a family law lawyer is going to put the name of the lawyer into google. Almost all of them. And when they do? They are going to find your CAF entry.

    And since everything on the CAF entry is TRUE? Well, I have every right to publish the TRUTH about the criminality of the employees of XXXXX for aiding and abetting known criminals XXXXX and XXXXX. So the question each of you has for yourself is this. Do you want the truth told in public where your clients, family, and friends can find it? Simple question. Now. Google will take a couple of days to find your entries and cache them and create the pointers. So you have a couple of days to react. But after about a week the entries will be in Google and your names will be cached there and there is no way I can get them deleted. And since your colleagues at Google think that it is just fine to host slander sites about me? I am sure they will not be bothered taking the CAF links out of google either.

    So here is the deal. XXXXX and XXXXX conspired to collaborate with XXXXX to take 95% of my 26 years of labour off me. XXXXX was not guiltless in all this either. So XXXXX, XXXXX and XXXXX are going to be dealt with when we get our new courts. But the rest of you? You crimes are fairly minor. You are merely aiding and abetting known criminals. So I am going to make you a good offer. Make a remedy payment of AUD10,000 and leave the employ of XXXXX.

    For this I will remove your entry in CAF and wish you the very best for your future. No hard feelings. No harm done. Since you lawyers earn AUD300+ an hour, and I paid XXXXX in excess of AUD45,000? I think a small remedy payment of AUD10,000 per person to remove THE TRUTH from the web is a very good deal. Most of you can bill that much in a good week. Go find some other law firm to practice with. We will get rid of all of them soon enough. But until then? For a remedy payment of AUD10,000 and resignation letter faxed to my fax number of +61- XXXXX I will take down your CAF entry. If you choose not to do this? Then the CAF entry will stay and you will be processed as a criminal in our new courts in the fullness of time. And since the first international common law court is going to be tested this weekend? That day is not that far away. And you can be sure I will not be offering you an AUD10,000 remedy if you put me to all that trouble.

    And don’t worry. The money will actually be used to help small boys whose fathers have killed themselves in divorce. I am starting some charities to do such things. Think of the remedy payment as your donation to charity for all the death and destruction you and your colleagues have caused in Australia. Pay it with good cheer knowing you are going to help small fatherless boys who have been made fatherless by your colleagues….or maybe even one of you. Payments can be made to peter.nolan.paypal@peternolan.com. Please make sure you mention your name in the payment. The amount to arrive at my end should be the euro or swiss frank equivalent of AUD10,000.

    Now. I will leave you to deliberate your situation. I am pretty sure that over your lifetimes the CAF entry is going to cost you a LOT more than AUD10,000. And the next time you want to screw over a father? Just remember. He might just be like me and come back and bite you on the arse many years later.

    Best Regards Your brother peter.

  • LONDON'S PAPER SHUFFLING LAWYERS RAKED IN A STAGGERING £5bn LAST YEAR ALONE
    Russian oligarchs' taste for British justice helped London lawyers rake in a record-breaking £5bn of profits last year.

    Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich may have won his battle against $6.5bn (5bn) of claims by exiled oligarch Boris Berezovsky, but the legal fees associated with the case are expected to top £100m. When the lawyers have totted up all the hours spent on the four-month long High Court battle it is expected to rank among the most expensive cases to have been fought in London courts. And Abramovich vs Berezovsky is just one of a slew of oligarch battles making their way through London's legal system, and turning the lawyers involved into multi-millionaires. In a few weeks the High Court will hear the next round of a legal battle between Oleg Deripaska, the Russian billionaire friend of Lord Mandelson, and Michael Cherney, a Uzbek-born businessman.

    This year Kazakh billionaire Mukhtar Ablyazov fled from the UK after the court found him guilty of lying about his vast fortune during one of the world's biggest world's biggest ever fraud trails. Ablyazov, who lied about his ownership of a £17m house on The Bishops Avenue in north London, known as London's "millionaires' row", is now a fugitive from UK justice. Mark McAteer, national editor of Legal Business magazine, said the Russian legal battles have helped push the profits at top 100 law firms in the Capital to more than £5bn for the first time ever. "Litigation for Russian clients has been a massive source of revenue for a number of firms – both big firms and boutique firms," he said.

    McAteer said Russians prefer to have their cases heard in the UK because "they approve of the system of usually having a fair playing field and we have very good judges and lawyers". The lawyers are also very well paid. Research by Legal Business shows that on average magic circle firm Slaughter & May's 723 lawyers bill clients for £620,000 in fees every year. McAteer said seven or eight of London's big law firms paid their partners more than £1m each last year. "There are partners paid a lot more than that with individual deals and bonuses, but you won't be able to work out how much," he added. "It's accounting so whether [what law firm's publish in their accounts] is a true reflection is a question."

    The Legal Business survey shows combined profits for the top 100 London firms increased by 8% to £5.4bn last year. Revenue rose by 17% to £17.7bn, but the figure is flattered by a number of internal mergers which distort the figures. DLA Piper is London's biggest law firm in terms of revenue, raking in £1.4bn a year, ahead of Clifford Chance on £1.3bn and Linklaters on £1.2bn. The top 100 law firms employ more than 100,000 people. In addition to new Russian business, McAteer said, the growing number of technology patent disputes, including Apple's fight against Samsung for copying its iPhone, have also been big money-spinners.

    WEBSITES CRITICAL OF LAWYERS IN MASS SHUTDOWN

    First the Law Society of England and Wales shuts down the Solicitors from Hell website. They claim that exposing lawyers crooked ways are a form of harassment and the judges (no juries) agreed. No coincidence the judges happen to be members of the Law Society of England and Wales with a major conflicit of interest.

    Another site opened up Solicitors from Hell 2 hoping to continue the job the Solicitors from Hell website was doing but this time located in America and outside the LS's jurisdiction. However it also has been closed down with no reason why the information it published can no longer be accessed.

    A third site opened up Cowboy solicitors and it has also closed down without any reason given. We ourselves have been subject to attack over many years and have had to use at least 20 or more web hosters to continue to expose the threat lawyers pose to men across the globe caught up in their dodgy legal scams. Sinister the degree to which they control the complicit compliant media and who seem determined to shut down the TRUTH about their scams now being exposed across the internet by their victims, or those victims that survived the destructive forces that continue behind closed secretive courtrooms.

    Café owner faces losing home and business after no-win no-fee lawyers rack up £33,000 bill... fighting a £2,000 compensation claim because the gasman slipped over

    A grandmother faced losing her home and business today after no-win no-fee lawyers rattled up a legal bill of up to £30,000 fighting a compensation claim of just £2,000. Jean Taylor, 52, was sued by a gasman after he slipped and fell on a wet floor at her café whilst reading her meter. The claimant Richard Newsham, 67, who said he broke two ribs in the fall instructed a firm of personal injury solicitors working on a conditional free arrangement.

    He later was awarded £2,000 in an out of court settlement in 2008 but the law firm - whose advertising slogan is 'investors in people' - then landed Mrs Taylor with a bill for fees initially totalling £20,000. Mrs Taylor who has run Jean’s Diner on Ribbleton Lane, Preston, for 10 years challenged the level of legal fees but lost her appeal at Preston County Court. This month she lost her appeal, which was heard in chambers at Preston County Court, and says she was told to pay up £30,000 - a bill which will be placed on her takeaway business. She has already paid more than £3,500 to her own lawyers.

    Mrs Taylor said: 'I will either have to lose my business or my home. I’m so angry. When the ruling was made, it broke my heart. I had to go away to get my mind straight. 'We can’t understand how it could have been so much for such a small accident. We have fought it for years. 'I did offer to try and pay £50 a week, but was told I would have to pay a minimum of £1,500 a month.

    'My business is just recovering from the closure of Ribbleton Lane, which hit us hard. I practically worked for nothing for six months while it went on. I just can’t afford to pay.' Mrs Taylor, a mother-of-three with four grandchildren, says her mother and granddaughter are both employed at her small business. Her solicitors say because she refused to pay the fees of the claimant’s solicitors, Marsden Rawsthorn, when they stood at less than £20,000, she has now been hit with a bill for £30,087.39, which included interest and a ‘success fee’.

    'Claimants used to bring actions under legal aid, where costs were regulated.(rubbish)

    'Solicitors only took action where there was a high chance of success, so very little taxpayers’ money was ever needed as costs were recovered from the insurance company. 'When legal aid for accidents was abolished it was on the basis that insurers would provide cover for no-win no-fee arrangements. 'Claims farmers entered the market and huge success fees were claimed. This is why Jean Taylor has been landed with costs way out of proportion to the value of the accident.

    'The no-win no-fee costs of the injured person were over six times our costs for acting for her in the claim.' The compensation claimant, retired Mr Newsham, was working for the meter reading firm Accuread when he says he slipped on a wet step leading down to the cellar and broke two ribs. He said: 'I was off work for six weeks after the accident. I did a lot of bending and stretching in my job, which I couldn’t do with broken ribs.

    'It happened years ago and they denied it from the start. 'They settled with me out of court, but continued to dispute the legal costs. 'I don’t really have a comment on how I feel about it, other than if they had just paid it when the ruling was made perhaps it would not have been so much.' Mr Newsham’s solicitors Marsden Rawsthorn, which has offices in Preston and Chorley said they could not comment on individual cases without their client’s permission.

  • LAWYER SHOT IN THE HEAD IN HIS OFFICE BY MAN WHO HAD HOME REPOSSESSED (STOLEN)
    James Ward Man who shot him had home repossessed

    The property developer arrested on suspicion of attempting to murder a solicitor is a Ferrari-driving millionaire, it has emerged.

    Businessman Michael Chudleigh, 62, was arrested on Monday in his home village of Rowde, Wiltshire, 35 minutes after a gunman walked into a solicitor's office and shot a man in the face. Solicitor James Ward, 59, is fighting for his life after being blasted in the head, as partner Nicola Morris - who also works at his firm - waits in a bedside vigil. It is believed the victim was shot at his desk – with stray bullets smashing nearby windows.

    Mr Chudleigh, who runs Kingfisher Builders, is listed as living at a sprawling converted farm house with former business partner Francine Whale. But it is thought he was evicted and the property repossessed by the mortgage company in April. It also emerged that Mr Chudleigh had previously admitted a passionate fling after getting involved in a bitter love triangle.

    He had a nine year affair with married blonde Rachel Leigh and admitted to romping in woods behind her house while her husband David was at work. But it ended when she began having another relationship in 2004. The builder, who showered his married lover with over £100,000 worth of gifts including a new Ferrari, stormed round to her address and confronted Rachel and her husband.

    A window was smashed, police were called and he ended up in a tussle with an officer. He was later found not guilty of criminal damage, assaulting a police officer and a public order offence, following a trial in 2007. Speaking after the case, Mr Chudleigh said: 'Rachel was the love of my life.

    'I left my former partner Carol for her. I left my house for her. I left everything for her - but she has left me in bits. 'I even proposed to her in Winchester Cathedral and gave her an £8,000 sapphire engagement ring, which was a copy of Princess Diana's engagement ring. 'But all my dreams are shattered. I hate her guts now, she is a dreadful woman and she has left me in pieces.'

    In an unrelated incident the property developer and Francine were tied up by two masked men in October 2009 in a shotgun robbery on their home. The robbers made off with £50,000 worth of jewellery. Speaking after the ordeal Mr Chudleigh said: 'They burst into our kitchen pointing a shotgun at us and made us lie on the floor. 'We were bound head and foot and they threatened to kill me if I did not tell them where the money was.

    'It was pretty horrendous. Mrs Whale has gone to pieces and she wants to barricade the door every night.' Today, Mr Ward was described by neighbours as a 'lovely man' who 'wouldn't hurt a fly'. A neighbour at Mr Ward's large red-brick farm house in Westbury, Wilts., who did not want to be named, said the solicitor would do anything for anybody.

    He said: 'He is just such a lovely man. The whole family is lovely. It is such a shock this has happened - he wouldn't hurt a fly. 'It's the type of thing you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy - I can't think of why anybody would have done this. 'We have all been praying for him at the local village church and we hope that he gets better - you have to have faith.'

    Morris, Goddard and Ward was set up in 1988, specialising in matrimonial and family law, personal injury, general legal claims and residential conveyancing. James Ward is listed as the principal solicitor at the practice. His partner Nicola Morris is listed as consultant solicitor. The neighbour said Mr Ward had three children - all of whom had grown up and left school

    A window on the first floor of the building, which houses another legal firm, was smashed in the shooting. The community had been left 'understandably shocked by the events and we appreciate their co-operation', a police spokeswoman said. A number of roads around the Market Place in Devizes were cordoned off by police, who said they would remain closed while its major crime investigation team examined the scene

    Simon Fisher, deputy town clerk at Devizes Town Council, said: ‘Some of us heard a bang. It sounded like a car backfiring or a car bumping into another car. ‘One of our staff saw a male being carried out on a stretcher.' Mr Chudleigh had a nine year affair with married blonde Rachel Leigh, right, and admitted to romping in woods behind her house while her husband David was at work

    A police spokesman said: ‘A male walked into the offices of Morris, Goddard and Ward, armed with a weapon, and shot a male. ‘The offender drove off in a car but was arrested at approximately 3.35pm without a struggle by armed officers in Rowde. ‘He is now in custody at Melksham Police Station. We recovered a weapon which we believe was used in the incident.

    Great Western Ambulance Service was at the scene six minutes after the 999 call. A spokesman said: 'We received a 999 call at 2.58pm reporting a man had been injured in an incident involving a firearm in office premises in St John's Street, Devizes. 'A paramedic in a rapid-response vehicle was on scene at 3.04pm, backed up by other resources, including ambulance crew, doctor, air ambulance and duty officers to liaise with other emergency services. 'The patient sustained serious, life-threatening injuries.'

    The centre of the town was closed as firearms officers and an ambulance raced to the scene. Locals described hearing a loud bang - sounding like a car backfiring. Colin Garrett, manager of Edwin Giddings, in St John’s Street, said: ’It’s a bit of a shock - it’s not the sort of thing you would expect here. Details are sketchy but apparently someone walked in with a shotgun and he discharged it.

    ‘I’m not sure if he was the intended target or if they were trying to diffuse the situation. Unfortunately solicitors deal with stressful situations which they are trying to sort out. I believe the man was known to them because he was arrested quickly. ‘The police are not allowing anyone near the scene as they are gathering evidence. Apparently the ambulance taking the injured person was given a police escort.’

  • LAWYER SHOT IN THE HEAD IN HIS OFFICES
    A lawyer was fighting for his life last night after a man walked into his office and shot him in the head.

    Police were called to the offices of legal firm Morris, Goddard and Ward in Devizes, Wiltshire, at around 3pm yesterday where they found the victim, who is believed to be a practising solicitor. A 62-year-old man fled the scene in a car but was arrested around 35 minutes later by armed police. It is not known what led to the shooting or whether the two men knew each other.

    The family of the victim spent the night by his bedside, at the Frenchay Hospital in Bristol where he was taken by Great Western Air Ambulance. It is believed the victim was shot at his desk – with stray bullets hitting nearby windows. A window on the first floor of the building, which houses another legal firm, was smashed in the shooting. The community had been left 'understandably shocked by the events and we appreciate their co-operation', a police spokeswoman said. A number of roads around the Market Place in Devizes were cordoned off by police, who said they would remain closed while its major crime investigation team examined the scene Simon Fisher, deputy town clerk at Devizes Town Council, said: ‘Some of us heard a bang. It sounded like a car backfiring or a car bumping into another car. ‘One of our staff saw a male being carried out on a stretcher.'

    A police spokesman said: ‘A male walked into the offices of Morris, Goddard and Ward, armed with a weapon, and shot a male. ‘The offender drove off in a car but was arrested at approximately 3.35pm without a struggle by armed officers in Rowde. ‘He is now in custody at Melksham Police Station. We recovered a weapon which we believe was used in the incident.

    Great Western Ambulance Service was at the scene six minutes after the 999 call. A spokesman said: 'We received a 999 call at 2.58pm reporting a man had been injured in an incident involving a firearm in office premises in St John's Street, Devizes. 'A paramedic in a rapid-response vehicle was on scene at 3.04pm, backed up by other resources, including ambulance crew, doctor, air ambulance and duty officers to liaise with other emergency services. 'The patient sustained serious, life-threatening injuries.'

    The centre of the town was closed as firearms officers and an ambulance raced to the scene. Locals described hearing a loud bang - sounding like a car backfiring. Colin Garrett, manager of Edwin Giddings, in St John’s Street, said: ’It’s a bit of a shock - it’s not the sort of thing you would expect here. Details are sketchy but apparently someone walked in with a shotgun and he discharged it.

    ‘I’m not sure if he was the intended target or if they were trying to diffuse the situation. Unfortunately solicitors deal with stressful situations which they are trying to sort out. I believe the man was known to them because he was arrested quickly. ‘The police are not allowing anyone near the scene as they are gathering evidence. Apparently the ambulance taking the injured person was given a police escort.’

    Mr Wiseman denies all allegations and has launched a libel action to vindicate himself

    A solicitor has launched a High Court libel action against a property millionaire client who accused him of charging £4,050 for a day’s legal work whilst he was actually playing golf. Businessman Colin Sullivan, 69, claims his former lawyer Stewart Brian Wiseman spent a ‘whole day’ playing golf at the prestigious Dyrham Park Country Club in Hertfordshire, instead of handling a case for him in November 2009. The High Court heard that Mr Sullivan became enraged when he received a bill charging him for 13 and a half hours toil at £300 an hour for that day.

    The wealthy developer ‘plastered’ his Range Rover with ‘offensive notices’ and first parked it outside the lawyer’s home in Clerkenwell, then outside his offices in Duke Street, Central London, the High Court was told. The notices - one of which read, ‘Stewart Wiseman took a full day off to play golf plus a half day for personal reasons yet charged me for 13 and a half hour days’ - were photographed by a passerby and ended up being posted on an internet discussion board. Mr Sullivan, of Brentwood, in Essex, also claims his former lawyer submitted a bill for his full hourly rate for two ‘friendly’ dinners the pair enjoyed at his expense.

    The case throws a spotlight on the way lawyers calculate their fees at an hourly rate. Mr Wiseman flatly denies the allegations and is now suing Mr Sullivan for alleged defamation, asking Mr Justice Eady to grant him ‘significant’ damages on the basis that his professional reputation was tarnished by the ‘extremely serious allegation of fraud’ made by his former client. The court heard the disputed charge for the alleged ‘golf day’ was part of a £37,800 bill for Mr Wiseman handling High Court litigation involving three of Mr Sullivan’s companies, in October and November 2009.

    Mark Tomassi, for Mr Sullivan, told the judge: ‘The important allegation is that he was charging for a full day’s, 13 and a half hours, work when he took the full day off and charged for it.’ The barrister, addressing Mr Wiseman in the witness box, put to him that evidence showed that he had also charged his client £600 for a two-hour meeting they had in a cafe and alleged that he had also put in a bill for his full hourly rate for two ‘friendly’ dinners out the pair had enjoyed at Mr Sullivan’s expense. ‘You would be wined and dined and subsequently you presented Mr Sullivan with a bill which charged him £300 for each hour you were dining...It cost him £600 for the pleasure of your company for two hours in a cafe,’ the barrister said.

    Mr Wiseman accepted he charged for the two-hour meeting in the cafe but denied presenting a bill for the evening dinners. Mr Tomassi told the judge that, for Mr Sullivan to defend successfully the defamation claim, ‘what needs to be justified is the allegation that he (Mr Wiseman) was charging for 13 and a half hour days when he was playing golf or away from the office for other purposes.’ Jacob Dean, for Mr Wiseman, told the court his client admits he is a member of the country club and played golf there during the time he was advising Mr Sullivan.

    However he maintains he only charged his client for two hours work on the crucial day, work which he did. ‘At the heart of this case is an allegation that my client charged Mr Sullivan for time he was on the golf course...If that allegation is not proved, the libel is proved,’ he told the judge. ‘He accepts he played golf on Novemeber 20, starting at 11am, and two hours were charged for that day. That is the amount of work that he did for that day,’ the barrister added.

    Mr Wiseman himself, in the witness box, said he had worked as a solicitor for 40 years and dismissed the allegations against him as ‘absolute nonsense.’ Insisting he had charged Mr Sullivan reasonably, he added: ‘I was full on from the moment I had instructions and dealt with a great deal of work.’

    Asking for a substantial award of libel damages, Mr Dean said: ‘This libel clearly touches on the core attributes of Mr Wiseman’s professional reputation, accusing him of being a dishonest solicitor fraudulently charging for work which was not done.’ The High Court hearing, set to last four days, continues.

  • VILE LEGAL MAFIA OF THE ROYAL PARASITES BEHIND HACKING AND SPYING
    julian pike As we have been exposing for a very long time almost all the major crimes committed in the UK have some connection with the biggest mafia ring across the planet the Law Society and all its many offshoots. No small time criminal can compete with the enormous plundering of victims estates that the worlds biggest scumbags operate in with spying and access to ALL our personal details thanks to the corrupt cops and private dicks they use en masse. All the crooked judges and lawyers operate for and on behalf of the British crown and Royal parasites via the United Grand Lodge of England and its head henchman the Duke of Kent

    The lawyer who advised News International on the phone-hacking scandal has defended the surveillance of victims’ lawyers as ‘justifiable’.

    Julian Pike, head of media practice at the Queen’s solicitors Farrer & Co, admitted advising News International to put Charlotte Harris and Mark Lewis under surveillance. Although he admitted that the move to monitor the lawyers was ‘unusual’, Mr Pike insisted that there was justification for doing it and insisted he would ‘do it again tomorrow’. Mr Pike told the Home Affairs select committee that he had ‘serious concerns about breaches of confidentiality’ at the time. His involvement in the controversial surveillance emerged last year and was part of an alleged plot by News International to prove professional misconduct on the part of the solicitors. Mr Pike told the committee: ‘I gave advice to News International that some surveillance should be carried out.’ But he added he had ‘no direct dealings’ with Derek Webb, the private investigator who carried out the surveillance on Miss Harris and Mr Lewis.

    He said: ‘News International used an agent who I had no knowledge of whatsoever... and that’s where it went wrong.’ Asked by the committee chairman, Labour MP Keith Vaz, if it was unusual to order surveillance on fellow lawyers, he replied: ‘It is very unusual and I certainly have not had cause to do it before but in these particular circumstances there was justification for doing it and I would frankly do it again tomorrow.’ Last year, Mr Pike admitted that he knew the firm had misled Parliament when it claimed that phone-hacking had been carried out by a single ‘rogue reporter’. He said he had been told in 2008 that at least four reporters on the News of the World had been involved in the practices.

    TRIO COULD BE CENSURED BY HOUSE OF COMMONS SPEAKER

    Ex-News of the World editor Colin Myler, the paper’s former legal manager Tom Crone and former News International executive chairman Les Hinton could be censured by the House of Commons Speaker. The Standards and Privileges Committee was last night asked to investigate claims the trio lied to Parliament during its phone-hacking investigation, claims they all furiously deny. The watchdog has ancient, rarely used powers to summon them for censure by the Speaker, fine and even imprison them.
