Update 03 June 2020: Maurice has been remanded for 28 days to HMP Exeter, with the magistrate recommending a crown court trial, probably in November – all this for delivering a letter to one’s MP!
He was given a ‘bundle’ en route to Exeter including the letter from his MP who had sent a letter – to SW Police? – that she felt she was being threatened. M says he had never met with his MP but originally wrote in May/June ’19 with request for help to get medical records from the clinic that he’s been refused the records from for many years. M had heard that the letter he’d sent to his MP had “anthrax” on it (gossip at village pub) when it was his toothpaste powder he’d used to stick the letter to his prison cell wall! In Dec 19 or Jan 20 he went to her constituency office and met the MP’s ‘agent’ or aide and asked him to book an appointment. By late Febuary 2020 he had heard nothing so he went again but then had lunch in a local diner where the MP’s aide came to speak to him . He asked again for his MP’s help. The aide said he would tell her. As again nothing happened last Wednesday 25th May he went to the village (Stoke St Mary) and from the pub went up to her house and posted a letter of request.
8am Friday the police came to his Taunton flat and took him to the station in Bridgwater. There they charged him with harassment. M thinks there was no harassment as he should be allowed to send a letter to his MP and to visit her office in Taunton twice and then send another letter as he had not heard from her.
What a crock!
Update 02 June 2020 – Maurice was arrested on Friday morning 29 May 2020 and was taken to a police station: “Maurice can at the maximum be detained for 36 hrs without being charged, or up to 96 hrs if an extension is obtained from Magistrates’ but we do not think that that has happened and he would have to go to court for that or appear by link” [ends]. The 36 hours was up at around noon on Monday 01 June if he was arrested on Friday morning 29 May 2020. Where is he?
“Welsh prison and G4S have stolen my machine gun records and even my parole officer Bradley Hughes cannot achieve a retrieval and I know he would have done his best…The civil two million pound civil claim continues but more urgent are my prison medical records from the Parc prison both my gp and consultant are being refused despite numerous requests South Wales Police, of course, refuse to help as it is the defendant in the machine gun civil claim! 1CF03361”
