Petition to President E.D. Mnangagwa, The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt

Justice From TEMBA PETER MLISWA who illegally seized my company.

Mr President of The New Zimbabwe  Your Excellency  "The VOICE of the people is the voice of God" Allow me to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your VICTORY.  On behalf of my wife and two boys I humbly appeal to you Mr President, the Zimbabwe Government and ZANU-PF for justice through compensation from Hon T.P MLISWA.  Hon Mliswa used the previous President Mr Robert. G. Mugabe's name in vain for personal Gain/Greed to illegally seize my companies' Noshio Motors and Benbar! He claimed Mr Mugabe "Sanctioned" this illegal seizure in line with the "indiginization" law. On 18 December 2009. He wrongfully and illegally seize my companies Noshio Motors (Pvt) Ltd incorporating Benbar/Tromps using a fake "Banda Trust" Mafia style dirty politics and his uncle Didymus Mutasa. He stated he is "Untouchable and above the law" as he has "powerful connections". He is obstructing the judiciary from doing their work in a professional manner.  Mr President you "Condemn" corrupt and illegal activities and recently gave a white farmer back the land. The country is wooing back FDI yet my companies were illegally seized by Hon Mliswa. My ONLY "Crime" white British FDI working with the amazing people of Zimbabwe. I was forced to flee Zimbabwe, with nothing but a suitcase due to death threats on my life. In the process I illegally LOST my entire investment, over One Million Pounds!  I love the amazing people of Zimbabwe, their kindness, warm smile, passion and love for God, willingness to work hard in rebuilding their Nation. What happened to me Mr President, was wrong, immoral, illegal, fraudulent, un-constitutional, against the law, a gross violation of my Human and property rights. Hon T.P MLISWA was called in, for his political muscle and "powerful connections" to prevent a forensic audit at my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar. Hon Mliswa claims a "Banda Trust" was drafted by his lawyer at the time G.N.MLOTCHWA! However as of February 2010 no such "Banda Trust" ever existed! My lawyer Victor Zvogbo did a search at the Deeds Office to verify this. HonT.P.Mliswa, SEVERELY VIOLATED MY HUMAN AND PROPERTY RIGHTS. He threatened to rape my Belgian wife, kidnap my two Belgian boys and KILL me!! My "crime"��FDI. Anti Corruption came to see me to tell me Mliswa was trying to change the Share Certificate.  Didymus Mutasa lied to the previous President. He was Presidential affairs Minister at the time. He made sure his Nephew, son and others were "Aquitted" bribing magistrates Never Katiyo and Morgan Nemadire as well as abusing his office. Johannes Tomanna (who was Mliswa's lawyer in 2000 during the Land Invasions) Prematurely closed my case without allowing FOUR other state witnesses to testify. You are a lawyer Mr President. The FACTS AND EVIDENCE are there. Please may I humbly ask you to summonds Florence Ziyambe Chris Mutangadura, Mr Dube, Mishrod Guvamende the LAW Society of Zimbabwe and Patrick Chinamasa who was Justice Minister at the time. I wrote to them all. A PRECIDENT MUST be made to show the World that Zimbabwe is definitely open for business and this will NEVER happen again to any other FDI creating employment for the amazing people of Zimbabwe.  I humbly ask and pray for your intevention in order for my family and I to rightfully receive the compensation due to us from Hon T.P MLISWA who was Provincial Chairman of Mashonaland West in the ruling Zanu-PF party at the time he illegally seized my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar.  Benbar was Zimbabwe's Number One Choice in manufacturing and Noshìo Motors was the leading supplier of motor vehicles and accessories to the entire Nation. Hon Mliswa destroyed it over night. Some workers had been there from the time of it's inception in the 90's. New potential investors want to believe the same thing will not happen to them. Hon T.P MLISWA must be held accountable for his own ACTIONS and DECISIONS in this heinous crime. HOW can he be PPC "Chairman" when he himself bribed Magistrates NEVER KATIYO and MORGAN NEMADIRE to get "ACQUITTED"? He threatened, harassed, intimidated, looted, extorted, maliciously damaged my personal property and furniture, criminally DEFAMED me, obstructed justice, coercion, manipulation of the judiciary, abuse of office, interfering with state witnesses, stole vast amounts of cash both in the safe and from customers, he made false police reports, forged documents, changed the CR14 WITHOUT my knowledge and/or approval, obtained a new share certificate, he is in violation of the Companies Act, using a FAKE "BANDA TRUST" and Banking Act, illegally opening a bank account and much more This is about an investment which I made in good faith in Zimbabwe, Mr President. I had been working from the time I was 16 years old. I built up these companies created employment only to lose the entire lot to Hon T.P MLISWA's personal greed! No "Sacred Cows" Mr President.  It is my HOPE and PRAYER my family and I receive justice through compensation from HON T.P MLISWA and perhaps help in the re-building process. #EXPOSEMLISWA #NOTOCORRUPTION #NOTOINJUSTICE #NOSACREDCOWS #YESTOHUMANRIGHTS #YESTOFDI #YESTOCONSTITUTION #YESTOACCOUNTABILITY #YESTOPEACE #YESTORESTORATION #YESTOREBUILDING #YESTORULEOFLAW #BRIGHTFUTUREAHEAD #LEGACYFORCHILDREN #TembasVictim #MLISWATOPAY #RestoreDontIgnore #JUSTICEFORWESTWOOD  #TembasVictim #RestoreDontIgnore  TOGETHER we accomplish more.  We thank you Mr President   Yours Faithfully Paul and Brenda-Lee Westwood

Petition to Crown Prosecution Service, Alison Saunders

Take domestic violence seriously in courts

Last night Manchester Crown Court’s Judge Richard Mansell ruled that he would not jail Mustafa Bashir, a man who made his wife drink bleach and, at one point, struck her over her back with a cricket bat saying: "If I hit you with this bat with my full power then you would be dead." Judge Mansell concluded she was not vulnerable enough because she was "an intelligent woman with a network of friends" and a university degree.The Judge handed out a suspended sentence of 18 months - a punishment which is not enforced unless a further crime is committed during a specified period. What message does this send out to perpetrators of domestic abuse?Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecution at the Crown Prosecution Service needs to take domestic violence seriously. Like Bashir’s partner, I went through hell with my ex, enduring domestic abuse for 18 years. At one point I was shot with a sawn-off shotgun and then beaten. My 16 year old son took his life as a result of this. I also had a network of good friends - does that mean I was not vulnerable enough too? What ignorance by the system.For years I have been saying that judges who deal with these cases don’t fully understand the issue of domestic violence, including the power dynamics of the perpetrator and victim and how it can make you a prisoner in your home - regardless of your network of friends and how intelligent you are.I am actively campaigning in the domestic abuse arena to see that all services listen to the voice of those who have and still are victims/survivors. Sadly we are experts by experience. All Judges should have mandatory domestic abuse training because their lack of knowledge is putting lives at risk, those lives of the vulnerable people.I am calling on the Alison Saunders to agree to meet me, and show that the CPS understands that work needs to be done so that Judge Mansell’s actions are never repeated.

Petition to Canadian Judicial Council

We Support the total dismissal of all allegations against Hon Justice Donald McLeod.

Justice Donald McLeod of the Ontario Court of Justice is a revered, reputable leader in African Caribbean Black Canadians (ACBC) communities across Canada, and has taken a courageous stance to advance in a non-partisan way the issues that affect ACBC people.  We reject completely, allegations to be heard at Justice McLeod’s upcoming November 30 hearing that Justice McLeod, in founding the national non-profit Foundation of Black Canadians (FBC) or in serving as Chair of its Steering Committee, misused his judicial position or engaged in misconduct.  We support his commitment to aid positive change in the futures of our current and upcoming generations and his vision of a Canada where all of its citizens have the right to self-determination and equal power to manifest their destiny. In our view, the allegations undermine trust between the community and our public institutions and are particularly troubling given the adoption by Canada and Ontario of the United Nations International Decade for the people of African Descent, particularly given its themes of development, recognition and justice. We are deeply concerned that the allegations misconceive the important and appropriate role that Black leaders, including judges can play in their communities. FRENCH / FRANCAISE Nous demandons que les allégations portées contre l'honorable juge Donald McLeod soient rejetées Le juge Donald McLeod de la Cour de justice de l’Ontario est un leader respecté et reconnu dans les communautés noires du Canada. Il a eu le courage de se mettre debout pour confronter les défis que confrontent les Canadiennes et Canadiens d’ascendance africaine, d’une façon non partisane. Nous rejetons complètement les allégations qui seront présentées lors d’une séance disciplinaire, le 30 novembre prochain, voulant que le juge McLeod, en fondant la Fédération des Noirs du Canada (FNC) et en étant le président interim de son comité de gestion, ait fait preuve d’inconduite professionnelle. Nous soulignons son engagement à favoriser le changement positif pour l'avenir des générations actuelles et futures et nous appuyons sa vision d'un Canada où tous ses citoyens ont le droit de s’épanouir et de pouvoir réaliser leurs plus grands rêves.  À notre avis, les allégations minent la confiance entre nos communautés et nos institutions publiques. Elles sont particulièrement troublantes compte tenu de l’adoption par le Canada et de l’Ontario de la Décennie internationale des personnes d’ascendance africaine des Nations Unies, qui souligne en particulier les thèmes du développement, de la reconnaissance et de la justice. Nous sommes profondément préoccupés par le fait que ces allégations renforcent des stéréotypes quant aux dirigeants issus des communautés noires, y compris les juges, et renforcent une méconnaissance quant au rôle que les juges peuvent jouer dans la société.

Petition to Rt Hon.David Gauke MP Lord High Chancellor Secretary of State for Justice, Theresa May MP

Should released killers remain supervised? (Murder of David Irwin)

In the UK when a murderer is released from prison after completing a life sentence they will remain on life licence for the remainder of their life and part of this process requires them to report to a National Probation supervisor every few weeks.  This is to ensure they are adhering to their licence restrictions, which have been set upon their release from prison.   However the supervision portion of this licence will potentially only remain in force for up to 4 years, which leaves the murderer to be unmonitored within society. Statistics taken from the Mail online May 2016 show that almost 100 killers,rapists and paedophiles who were given life sentences by judges have been released - only to be jailed for life again for committing another serious offence. Therefore would it not be more effective to continue monitoring and supervising the offender to prevent them from the possibility of re-offending? My husband David Irwin’s killer was released on life licence in 2012 after serving a ten year sentence for his murder and my understanding of his release was that he would be continually monitored by a supervisor within the Probation Service every few weeks.  However I have now been informed that the case will be referred to the Parole Board and his supervision may be rescinded due to the murderers “good behaviour”. I was unaware of this fact and after completing some research, I have unfortunately discovered that this is part of the process for murderers on a life licence and is common practice that the supervision or reporting restrictions are only to remain in force for approximately 4 years. This is a concern and causes immense anxiety, to know that my family and I, will no longer have the reassurance that the murderer will be supervised or monitored. I, hereby, petition the Prime Minister Theresa May and the Rt Hon.David Gauke MP Lord High Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice to acknowledge and amend the current policy for supervision which ceases after 4 years and to maintain full supervision for murderers for the remainder of their lives.
