EVEN MORE MULLIGAN – CAN IT GET ANY WORSE?

UPDATE – 25th January 2014

Well, anybody who might wish to question the role of the newly unelected Police & Crime Commissioners need look no further than to Julia Mulligan, the incumbent in North Yorkshire.

She was (not) elected on the basis she would be transparent, listen to her constituents and act of their behalf. Except, it would seem, if they are an 85 year-old, disabled great-grandmother, who is the victim of police crime and social worker abuse.

We sent this e-mail to Mrs Mulligan some weeks ago. Other than the usual automated answer promising a reply in a few days, we heard no more until today, when our e-mail prompted a “deleted, not read” response.

Yes, that is how Julia Mulligan carries out her duties as a public official. Perhaps instead of not forcing bent chief cops to repay the taxpayers money they have stolen, she should refund her salary, as she is clearly not doing her job.

Well, as you can see from the e-mails below, after Dear Julia decided to deal with this matter by deleting the e-mails we sent her without reading them, we made a formal complaint to the Police & Crime Panel, to which she reports.

To our surprise, they did actually do something. They passed the complaint on to the “Corporate Development Officer” at North Yorkshire County Council. That is an impressive title. One wonders however what, if anything, that person does, that could justify the salary he is getting from the public purse.

We shall see.

Anyway, he suggested “informal resolution”, to which we agreed, suggesting that Dear Julia do the job for which she is paid.

I know, pigs might fly.

Ladies & Gentlemen,

I am writing to you in your role as members of North Yorkshire Police & Crime Panel to draw your attention to misconduct by Julia Mulligan, the Police & Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire.

Her failure to read my e-mails is a breach of her oath of office and as such a clear case of misconduct in public office. I would ask you to record a complaint here and take the necessary disciplinary action against her.

Please let me know how you wish to proceed here.

Yours faithfully,
Peter Hofschröer

NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE and CRIME PANEL

Dear Mr Hofschröer

The Chairman of the North Yorkshire Police and Crime Panel, County Councillor Carl Les, has forwarded to me your email of 23 January in which you lodge a complaint against Mrs Julia Mulligan, the North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner stating that “…her failure to read my e-mails is a breach of her oath of office”

The Police and Crime Panel now has a responsibility to deal with the complaint by informal resolution, as required by the Elected Local Policing Bodies (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2012.

I have enclosed:

1.      a copy of the Panel’s procedure for the handling of complaints; and

2.      a flowchart which summarises the process.

Informal resolution is a way of dealing with a complaint by solving, explaining, clearing up or settling the matter directly with the complainant, without an investigation or formal proceedings. It is not a disciplinary process and cannot involve the imposition of any sanction. The Panel has appointed a sub-committee of three members to carry out the informal resolution.

Please provide by 10 February 2014 any written relevant information, documents and comments (in addition to your email dated 23 January 2014 that would assist the sub-committee to carry out the informal resolution.  Please will you send all material to me at County Hall, Northallerton DL7 8AD or nypcp@northyorks.gov.uk

The Police and Crime Commissioner is also being invited to provide by 10 February 2014 any written relevant information, documents and comments that would assist the sub-committee to carry out the informal resolution.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Busby,

Thank you for your reply.

I welcome your suggestion that we should dealing with this issue by means of “informal resolution”.

May I suggest an easy way of doing this, which would place a minimal burden on the public purse?

All that Mrs Mulligan needs to do is read my e-mails and answer them. That is, after all, what she gets paid for.

Please see that she does so.

Thank you!

Yours sincerely,
Peter Hofschröer

Dear Mrs Mulligan,

May I draw your attention to the latest press revelations about you in your role as Police & Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire?

Do see:http://www.real-whitby.co.uk/police-crime-commissioners-rabbits-headlights. Here, it mentions one of the cases of serious police crime committed against an 85 year-old invalid, a case you have now been evading dealing with for over one year now:

“The failure of the North Yorkshire Police to investigate burglary, fraud and institutional harassment in the Barbara Hofschröer case, and the failure of the North Yorkshire Police to accede to an appeal by Lord Maginnis of DRUMGLASS to convene a Safeguarding Conference with York City Council to secure the safe return of 84-year-old invalid Barbara Hofschröer and her carer, from exile in Austria to their home in York.”

May I draw your attention to the “North Yorkshire and York Safeguarding Adults – Multi-agency Policy & Procedures” (see: http://www.safeguardingadultsyork.org.uk/images/multi-agency%20policy%20and%20procedure.pdf).

This has been adopted by North Yorkshire County Council, the City of York Council and, of course, North Yorkshire Police (NYP), for dealing with cases of elder abuse, such as the institutional harassment of my elderly, disabled mother by officers of NYP, which is now into its sixth year.

This document makes it very clear that my mother’s case meets many of the criteria of abuse as defined. You are aware she is the victim of serious abuse by officers of North Yorkshire Police and that you have a duty of care to ensure my mother is safeguarded from NYP.

You are on record as acknowledging you are aware of this case of abuse.

You have have willfully failed to act to safeguard my mother, which is an act of abuse.

That makes you an abuser of vulnerable people.

Would you agree with me that being an adult abuser is inconsistent with holding the public post of Police & Crime Commissioner?

When can we expect your resignation?

In case you again intend to evade answering this e-mail, as you have with all communications I have sent to you, may I remind you of the automated answer you send out?

 

JULIA MULLIGAN

Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire

 

Thank you very much for your email.

 

This is an automated response to confirm receipt of your email, and you will receive this email each time you contact my office.  While I have not yet had the chance to read your message, I wanted you to know it has been safely received and will be acted on.

I receive a very high volume of correspondence and telephone calls each day, dealing with them in the order in which they are received.

We aim to respond to all correspondence within five working days and do appreciate your patience.

Please note that there are strict constituency protocols that Police and Crime Commissioners should only help their own constituents.  If you are unsure please check on http://www.police.uk/

If you are one of my constituents, please ensure you have included your full name, address and contact details. If you have not, please resend your email with this information.

I send out occasional bulletins updating constituents on what I am doing as a Police and Crime Commissioner. I will add your name to this list unless you ask not to receive them.

Once again thank you for taking the time to contact me.

 

Julia Mulligan

Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire

 

Here you state:

“We aim to respond to all correspondence within five working days and do appreciate your patience.”

You have not responded to a single e-mail on this case in more than ONE YEAR, let alone the “five days” you promise.

The only response any reasonable person can expect here is your letter of resignation.

Please oblige.

Yours sincerely,
Peter Hofschröer

UPDATE – 3rd November 2013

For further revelations about the utter corruption and gross incompetence in Julia Mulligan’s office, do see:

“Not fit for purpose” is the phrase that comes to mind here.

*****

The e-mail below has just been sent to North Yorkshire’s Police & Crime Commissioner..

Will she do the honourable thing and resign?

I know. Silly question.

Subject: “The role of the PCC is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account”
Date: Mon, 09 Sep 2013 11:31:32 +0200
From: Grandma B
To: pcc@northyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk

Dear Mrs Mulligan,

I am writing to you in your role as Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) for North Yorkshire.

You may recall that the Home Office has set out the role of PCC’s as follows:

“To be the voice of the people and hold the police to account”.

(See http://www.apccs.police.uk/page/Role%20of%20the%20PCC)

You are no doubt aware that North Yorkshire Police (NYP) is the subject of continuous and almost incessant allegations of corruption and malpractice in both Parliament and the press, which they are not disputing.

May I draw you attention to the latest press revelations?

http://www.real-whitby.co.uk/operation-countryman-ii-7-jaconelli-savile

This article provides further evidence of how NYP assisted Jimmy Savile in abusing vulnerable children for decades.

Your failure to hold the police to account is noted in this press article.

Can you please explain how “refusing to comment” is consistent with “holding the police to account”?

Will you be taking any action here?

If so, can you please let me know what this will be?

If not, can you please state so.

In case you wish to continue to exercise your right to silence, may I remind you of your oath of office?

“I do solemnly and sincerely promise that I will serve all the people of North Yorkshire Police Force Area in the office of Police and Crime Commissioner without fear or favour. I will act with integrity and diligence in my role and, to the best of my ability, will execute the duties of my office to ensure that the police are able to cut crime and protect the public. I will give a voice to the public, especially victims of crime and work with other services to ensure the safety of the community and effective criminal justice. I will take all steps within my power to ensure transparency of my decisions, so that I may be properly held to account by the public. I will not seek to influence or prevent any lawful and reasonable investigation or arrest, nor encourage any police action save that which is lawful and justified within the bounds of this office.

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/police-and-crime-commissioners-to-swear-an-oath-of-impartiality

Can you please explain how refusing to act against the many child abusers in NYP constitutes serving your electorate “without fear or favour”, how this is acting “with integrity and diligence” and how your failure to deal with the endemic corruption in NYP can in any way “protect the public”?

Can you also please explain how ignoring the concerns about this corruption in NYP raised by members of the public, the press and in Parliament is giving “a voice to the public, especially victims of crime” and how this ensures “the safety of the community and effective criminal justice”?

Can you also please explain how making no statement whatsoever on this corruption and crime ensures the “transparency” of your decisions, so that you “may be properly held to account by the public”?

Can you also explain how your failure to act to carry out your remit is not seeking “to influence or prevent any lawful and reasonable investigation or arrest, nor encourage any police action save that which is lawful and justified within the bounds of this office”?

May I also remind you of certain of your election promises?

“Stand up for you – be your champion. Perhaps most importantly of all,  it would be my job to be your voice and ensure the police deliver what you need in your local area and to drive down crime.

(See: www.juliamulligan.org.uk)

Can you please explain how ignoring serious crime committed by NYP is consistent with that statement?

May I remind you of yet more serious crime you are ignoring?

You are aware that my elderly, disabled mother is the victim of serious crimes committed by among others senior officers of NYP.

Despite the fact that Lord Maginnis has raised her case in Parliament several times, you have persistently refused to act here also.

May I refer you to he “Action on Elder Abuse” website for this definition of elder abuse?

“What is Elder Abuse? – ‘A single or repeated act or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person’.

(See: http://www.elderabuse.org.uk/Mainpages/Abuse/abuse.html).

Would you agree that your “lack of appropriate action”, when “there is an expectation of trust”, as you have given in your oath of office, and which has caused my 84 year-old, wheelchair-bound mother, who has been unlawfully evicted from her home by a criminal gang, which includes senior officers of NYP, “harm and distress” is an act of elder abuse?

Would you agree with the statement that, “Any public official that cannot act in law, in honour and in truth has no mandate for office”?

If so, when can we expect your resignation?
