There are a group of citizen media in Jersey Channel Islands who are constantly fighting to try and see justice gets done in the island.
Right now ex Senator Stuart Syvret is in the middle of a court battle, but part of his defence could well be contained in a report document that has yet to be released. In most places in the civilized world this would be cause for the adjournment of the case, if this will be the case in Jersey remains to be seen.
Some States Members are actually coming out of the closet and voicing their opinions on what they see as possible corruption done the Jersey Way. This is a very brave thing to do because it could have untold repercussions for them.
St Helier Connétable Simon Crowcroft has given a video interview to Team Voice and in it he states his view that our ex Senior Police Officer Graham Power QPM has been made a scapegoat, that the ex Senior Police Officer Graham Power QPM’s suspension from duty could be considered dubious.
Team Voice’s quote from Graham Power QPM on Voice for Children’s website:
“In these circumstances I believe that there is a compelling case for a full independent investigation with intrusive legal powers, into the actions of Andrew Lewis and others on and around 12th November 2008 and that given the circumstances, a full criminal investigation, by an independent police force, may be appropriate.” Graham Power QPM.
Now just what will happen is anyone’s guess, it could go either way. But if the truth is allowed to come out and justice is done then the Government of Jersey will be in for a huge shake up. If not then I strongly suspect that all those fighting for justice and reporting the facts of what is going on in the island anyway they can and will be in line for a really hard time.
On the grapevine it is said that if you are not part of the Jersey way that you have chosen to be an outsider, and outsider’s of the Jersey way have blotted there future in the island for all time.
The Jersey way it is said would appear to consists of bartering or put the Jersey grapevine way using back hander’s to get what you want in the island. The whispers in the island are rife and a lot of people in the island are afraid to speak out for fear of imagined or real repercussion.
