Serious Organised Crime

Dear Chief Executive, Dear Chief Constable,

Your are aware that Lord Maginnis of Drumglass has accused you in Parliament of being party to the criminal defrauding of a disabled great-grandmother, Barbara Hofschröer, of her house and of continuing your campaign of persecution of this defenceless old lady all the way to her refuge in Austria.

The press has described your behaviour as constituting “institutional harassment”.

Four years ago, you hounded this 85 year-old, wheelchair-bound, great-grandmother from her home in York. You have been party to several attempts to fraudulently sell her house. You are not denying that you are doing so in anticipation of a share of the proceeds of this crime.

You have now been accused in a TV programme of being members of a crime syndicate, which is defrauding defenceless old people.

Please see:

Our interview starts at 12:10, but is then delayed for technical reasons to 28:37.

Sonia Poulton, the TV journalist conducting this interview, has offered you the right of reply to the very serious allegations made. Please indicate if you intend to do so on this occasion.

So far, you have not responded to requests by Lord Maginnis to meet and resolve this case, you have not responded to solicitors letters, you have not responded to the requests of both the IPCC and LGO to reopen the safeguarding investigation into this case and you have blocked every attempt to properly investigate and resolve this case.

In the event you again decide to exercise your right of silence here, may I remind you of the law?

“Qui tacet consentire videtur” runs the ancient maxim of common law – “Silence gives consent”; and from that maxim flows a widely-applied legal principle: “the rule of tacit admission”.

On the assumption that an innocent man (or woman) would strenuously deny a serious charge, the rule holds that a suspect who remains silent in the face of an accusation has tacitly admitted the crime and such silence can later be introduced at trial as an indicator of guilt.

What is clearly not right is to remain silent while continuing to act in public office – most particularly as chief executive of York Council or as chief constable of North Yorkshire Police with access to information on operational police and local authority matters – potentially including a police investigation concerning yourselves in consequence of the undisputed allegations of misconduct in public office, conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and harassment, as well as other allegations that are being presently being raised in public.

Furthermore, if you continue to exercise your right of silence, then that constitutes misconduct in public office, a further serious criminal offence.

Should I not hear from you within seven days, that is by 9 a.m. GMT on 2nd January 2014, then I will have no choice but to act on the basis that you are not disputing these very serious allegations made in a very public place and are continuing to exercise your right to silence, so breaking the law yet again.

Yours sincerely,
Peter Hofschröer
Carer for Barbara Hofschröer, aged 85, wheelchair-bound, victim of police crime and social worker abuse

    This calls for Citizen’s Arrests and Private Prosecutions so these criminals and their gang can be tried, under common law, by a jury of men and women who would undoubtedly find them guilty and sentence them to many years in prison.

  2. Thank you for your kind suggestions. This course of action is one we would very much like to take, but in view of the bogus arrest warrants Jimmy Savile’s favourite police force has issued for us, we cannot return yet home to see that the law is upheld. We are however working on resolving this situation.
