Subject: IPCC Reference: 2014/025117 SOUTH WALES POLICE

Dear Chief Superintendent X,
Thank you for your response.
I shall be grateful if you will please acknowledge this email by issuing me a complaint file number immediately, as is required by protocol.
Cardiff Crown Court, April 8, 2014 Case Number A20140005, before Judge Crowther
I am reliably informed that the prison duty governor admitted under oath that the police are monitoring Maurice Kirk’s phone calls from the prison, and have put one of his supporters on a no contact list. This information should be in the court transcripts. Mr. Kirk was on remand at the time. He is a civil prisoner.
That alone is an indicator of direct police interference with the health, welfare, and rights of Maurice Kirk,
and it is in the public interest that this complaint be followed through in its entirety, please.
It is alleged that Mr. Kirk is being denied his right to medical attention, has been, and is being, subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment as a direct result of overt police interference with his rights, health, and welfare.
This allegation is besides the fact that Maurice Kirk has allegedly been inhumanely treated and persecuted in an unlawful manner by South Wales police over a great many years, as a result of his successful civil litigation against South Wales Police. Here I cut and paste the testimony of Maurice Kirk’s sister which is to form part of this complaint, along with testimonies of those outlined in the email chain below:
“Time to start connecting the dots
I set out below the complaint I have sent into ABM NHS Trust and the organisation representing victims of the South Wales Hospital.
As you can see this involves the South Wales Police in the first place, then the NHS and more horrifically the CPS and Prison Service.
The story below is a synopsis of what has been happening to my brother over the past 22 years.
I am sister to Maurice John KIRK (dob 12.3.45) who is currently being held in Cardiff Prison awaiting sentence for a trumped up crime. He is thus unable to furnish information personally. I live in Jersey but was in Cardiff last month and attended a ‘victims of ABMU’ meeting on Tuesday 26th March 2014 in Bridgend.
A. Maurice Kirk has had a long battle with South Wales Police who continually picked on him for relatively minor motoring offences which he continually disproved in the magistrates’ courts of South Wales over a period of some 18 years. I believe the record would show that he won over 80% of his appearances. Weekly he would be stopped and asked to produce his driving licence and insurance documents at some police station or other as he went about his business.
B. He was a well-respected Veterinary Surgeon who would always drop whatever he was doing socially/family/middle of the night to attend an injured animal if surgery was closed. Our father was also a veterinary surgeon and held the same view that an animal in pain required immediate attention.
C. The Police asked him to attend an injured dog found under the cliffs at Llantwit beach. (They had asked other vets in the area but as it was Saturday afternoon they refused!) My brother with his damaged ankle walked several hundred meters along the beach over stones to retrieve the dog and as people looked on he struggled to carry the mangy animal back to his car to treat in the surgery. He was reported to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons where his motoring offences were noted. The police took statements from some on-lookers who did not understand the situation (the dog had been hurled off the cliff by uncaring owners and my brother was not going to be paid for his efforts to save the dog but this did not matter to him). They failed to admit that a retired magistrate watching the event with her sister had nothing but praise for the vet and did not submit this evidence to the Royal College.
D. Subsequently my brother was banned from practising as a vet. This had been initiated because Kirk had decided to take the South Wales Police to the Civil Court for their behaviour over the last 18 years.
The Police turned up the pressure and one day in June 2009 they arrested him for possession of an unlicensed and illegal firearm. He was imprisoned on remand and S W Police asked Dr. W to verify my brother’s state of mental health. The court duly placed him in C CLINIC for 28 days. During this time the DOCTOR and team was unable to come to a conclusion about his diagnosis and so twice more the court was asked to extend the incarceration in C Clinic. (My brother said it was a truly frightening place to be as most of the inmates really were suffering from mental illness).
E. My brother was determined to defend himself in court as he knew the real story and he would not have been able to afford legal representation and anyway, could find no reliable Welsh defence lawyer. The Police were anxious to stop him speaking the truth in court so unbeknownst to the defendant he was illegally placed on MAPPA Level 3 and made a subject of Public Interest Immunity (IIP) and therefore should be incarcerated to Ashworth Hospital for LIFE!. (Before they picked him up in June 2009 an order had gone out that he was to be shot on sight if seen near the home of the Chief Constable Barbara Wilding. Luckily for Maurice he did not go down that road as he did not know where she lived and had received no notice that he would be shot if he did. This is all unbelievable I hear you say but there is a paper trail to prove it)
F. The Court needed two psychiatrists to sign the document to declare that Kirk was unfit to plead. Although whilst in his prison cell in HMP Cardiff I understand eleven psychiatrists tried to interview him a second doctor could not be found to corroborate that my brother had paranoid delusional disorder and was unfit to defend himself in court.
G. On 2nd December 2009 I ordered the transcript of the bail application hearing in front of Judge Bidder. (received 20th Jan. 2010) My brother was not allowed to be present and so had no representative in court to hear Dr. W testimony that Maurice John KIRK has paranoid delusional disorder, a degree of brain damage and possibly brain cancer.
H. His application for bail failed but surprisingly whilst awaiting trial no Prison Doctor came near him and no hospital appointment was made in relation to ‘possible brain tumour’!
I. Needless to say he was extremely worried about his health once he had sight of the transcript and the doctor’s evidence. NO TREATMENT offered.
J. The Firearms Jury Trial was rumbled as a made-up case by South Wales Police as we were told after the three week trial that the Jury were pretty sure that the Police had fabricated evidence from Day One. Maurice was released.
K. During the subsequent years (now 4 years) he has attempted to have this false medical report removed from his health records and those held by HMP Cardiff. It has been in vain.
L. He desperately needed a hip replacement operation as his ankle injury had put pressure on the hip joint. The anaesthetist was unable to accept him for treatment due to this incorrect report and in the end he had the operation in France.
M. He re-applied for his Private Pilots Licence but this was refused because of the Doctor’s report. He re-applied to be reinstated at the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons but this was refused based on Dr. W’s false medical report.
N. He had full scans on his brain at his expense (not in South Wales as the health service refused him) to ascertain that he DID NOT have a brain tumour nor appreciable brain damage.
O. Last year the CAA awarded him his Private Pilots Licence again and after being incarcerated again in HMP Cardiff on another Police make-believe case to prevent the 20 week Civil Action against the South Wales Police in Court from concluding he had to go on hunger strike before the Prison Medical Service admitted that the information in Dr. W’s medical Report of September 2009 was incorrect in its conclusions.
P. I should add that my brother, (aged 69, oldest prisoner in the prison)) who has a prolapsed colon ( as he defended himself this was the only route he could take to get important evidence into Court from his Prison Cell) is in regular 5 hours of pain but is obliged to queue in line with the methadone chaps on his drug wing for a paracetamol which he is obliged to take then (8am and 4pm) and so is unable to receive pain relief when he needs it later in the evening. He is down to see the Prison Doctor in 6 weeks time! When you see how he treated animals in pain he now wishes he was an animal not a Human Being in the South Wales Health area.
Q. He has tried and tried to get this false report removed from his file but it has proved impossible. NHS Wales have never co-operated in this.
