I made a complaint against my barrister Christopher Wing. One of my complaints was the refusal of Wing, to use Divorce Affidavits made by the two stepdaughters (1999) who used the same allegations (as in my criminal trial), which I had proved to be false!
To my surprise I discovered it was Judge Wiggs who had withheld this vital exculpatory evidence!
Judge Wiggs let me sack my solicitor (Booty) and my barrister (Wing) at trial for withholding exculpatory evidence and other faults in their representation in my regard. He said nothing and allowed these two lawyers to leave court. Sicko!
The intentional withholding of evidence by a Crown Court Judge, which is not challenged by defence counsel makes a mockery of justice in the UK.
We then have Mr Justice Beatson sitting at the Court of Appeal who sided with those mentioned here. I kid you not!
“Disclosure is one of the most important issues in the criminal justice system and the application of proper and fair disclosure is a vital component of a fair criminal justice system. The "golden rule" is that fairness requires full disclosure should be made of all material held by the prosecution that weakens its case or strengthens that of the defence.” Click to see
