UK judge's Railtrack ruling 'a whitewash'.

The Daily Mail, 14th October 2005, reports:

1. Railtrack private shareholders have lost their High Court battle with the Government over what they saw as the "killing off" of the company by former Transport Secretary Stephen Byers.

2. The judge in the High Court was Mr Justice Lindsay.

3. The Railtrack shareholders' main claimant Geoffrey Weir described the judgement as "a complete whitewash" which gave the Government "carte blanche to act as they please in future".

4. The shareholders had claimed at least £157 million.

5. In evidence, Mr Byers had said he had given wrong evidence to a House of Commons select committee as to the timing of discussions to put Railtrack into administration.

6. On Friday, the judge said: "I cannot proceed on the basis that he (Mr Byers) is a proven liar".


The biggest terrorist attack in Britain was the Lockerbie bomb, which many people suspect was the work of elements of the CIA.

The 1989 incident killed 270 people.

It seems that the judges in the Lockerbie bomb trial were either

1. tricked

2. or intimidated

3. or bribed.

Police chief- Lockerbie evidence was faked

According to the newspaper 'Scotland on Sunday' , 28 August 2005, a Scottish Police chief has revealed that the Lockerbie evidence was faked.

The former police chief has given lawyers a signed statement claiming that evidence in the Lockerbie bombing trial was fabricated.

The officer has testified that the CIA planted the fragment of circuit board crucial in convicting Al Megrahi.

The Sunday Herald 08/04/2001 : "THE United Nations has savaged the Crown Office's handling of the Lockerbie trial claiming the outcome was rigged through the unfair suppression of evidence; it was politically influenced by the USA; and the court had no grounds to return a guilty verdict. Dr Hans Kochler, who was handpicked by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to act as the international observer during the trial in Holland, hinted that the trial was rigged, claimed the guilty verdict handed down in February to Abdelbasset Ali Mohamed Al Megrahi was "arbitrary" and "irrational" and gave his tacit support for an acquittal at the planned appeal."

The following comes from jakartass.blogspot:

Bagir has been suspended...

Bagir Manan, 64, is the country's Chief Justice.

In April 2003, ex-dictator Suharto's half brother, Probosutedjo, now 75, was sentenced to four years imprisonment for embezzlement of reforestation funds, which cost the state some Rp.100 billion in losses.

Naturally, given the status of the convicted man, the case has gone to appeal.

Where this all gets interesting is that Harini R. Wiyoso, one of his lawyers, has admitted that she gave US$500,000 to Supreme Court staff to pass on to Bagir, and another $100,000 for other officials and judges...
