Stronger punishment for perpetrators of tool thefts from tradesman's vehicles.
My name's mark and I'm a 46yr old self employed carpenter, like many self employed tradesmen I have to purchase my own tools for the trade I have chosen. The replacement of these tools usually costs thousands of pounds and in some cases insurance companies have six weeks to settle any claims. That's a six week financial burden to a victim of this crime. Several friends of mine were victims of tool theft from their vans, and I too have been a victim. Luckily my home insurance paid out for the tools I lost. Another carpenter in my village had everything taken from his vehicle for he second time that year. Not everyone can empty their vans at night and not everyone has insurance cover. This type of crime is classed as petty crime but to a tradesmen who has paid for his tools with blood sweat and tears doesn't feel this is a petty crime. Every morning I walk out my house wondering if today is the day that my van has been broken into. I'm calling for this crime to have more severe punishments as it affects hundreds of hard-working tradesmen, every day I see more victims posting about their plight via Facebook and it's sickening to see. A tradesman's tools are his livelihood. There are organised gangs traveling the length of the country helping themselves to thousands of pounds worth of tools by peeling open the doors of hard-working tradesmen's vans and helping themselves to their tools. Some even purchase specialist keys to decode and open vans without causing damage to the vehicle, mainly fords. These gangs are so organised and know many ways to break into the vans with no sign of entery leaving us unable to claim on our insurance. the punishment needs to meet the severity of the crime. The police mostly just give out a crime number which in many occasions are of no use as tools need replacing instantly also our van insurance rises. Insurance companies base premiums on postcodes and crime figures so this crime affects us all. The people suffering are the hard working tradesman who build and maintain the infrastructure of this country. A ban on insurance increases to victims of van crime should be put in place, and emergency low or interest free government loans should be put in place to help relieve the burden to the innocent victims of this type of crime. Tradesmen help the economy tick over in the hard times and generate great income in the form of TAX in the good times.This type of crime is now at epidemic proportions and needs addressing by those who we have appointed to run this country on our behalf. It will not be long before there is a fatality, either a victim of the crime or a perpetrator. A man's tools are his and his family's livelihood and in the heat of the moment he will defend them as if his life depended on it. Please help the situation before more innocent people fall victim of these low vile organised criminal gangs. Please sign and share with all your friends and support all victims of this crime and call for stronger punishment for perpetrators. Thank you on behalf of all UK tradesmen.

Introduce ‘Helen’s Law': where hiding a body, preventing a burial and obstructing a coroner become criminal offences - with ‘whole life’ tariffs
To lose a loved one is devastating. To lose a loved one to murder is horrific. To be denied their funeral causes unimaginable suffering. I have endured this nightmare for almost 28 years. Ian Simms is serving a life sentence (on overwhelming forensic evidence) for the murder of my daughter Helen McCourt, aged 22, on 9 February 1988, in Billinge, Lancs. For almost three decades Simms has refused to reveal the whereabouts of Helen’s body – denying us the chance to grant her the dignity of a funeral and resting place.The case made legal history as only the third ever UK murder trial without a body. Sadly, as killers go to ever-desperate lengths to hide evidence and evade justice such cases have become more common. Without stiffer penalties they will continue to rise. In January 2016 a Parole Board will decide on Simms’ application for freedom. As it currently stands, the English legal system does not require a convicted murderer (at the end of their determined tariff) to admit guilt or reveal the location of a victim’s remains before being released. If parole is granted, my hopes of finding my daughter may never be realised. No other family should live this ordeal.I, hereby, petition the Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May to acknowledge the pain and distress caused to the families of missing murder victims by: Denying parole to murderers for as long as they refuse to disclose the whereabouts of their victim’s remains Passing a full life tariff (denying parole or release) until the murderer discloses the location (and enables the recovery) of their victim’s remains Automatically applying the following rarely-used common law offences in murder trials without a body*; preventing the burial of a corpse and conspiracy to prevent the burial of a corpse, disposing of a corpse, obstructing a coroner (*as in the case of R v Hunter, 1974 (from Archbold, Criminal Pleading Evidence and Practice 2015) Denying a funeral is, surely, an infringement of basic human rights. Please support me. Picture by Chris Neill
Petition to UK Parliament, Theresa May MP
Make Autistic hate crime as punishable as racism
Far too often in the United Kingdom we see some of the most vulnerable members of our society i:e the Autistic community being abused to the highest degree, they are subjected to horrific levels of bullying and psychological torture; often by those who pretend to befriend them just so they can exploit them for their own personal gain and amusement. Autistic teenager 16 year old Emily O'Reilly (pictured above) was brutalised on her way to a friends house. http://metro.co.uk/2017/02/16/autistic-girl-16-left-with-horrific-injuries-after-being-attacked-by-another-girl-6452142/ If you follow the link above then you will see the urgency of this epidemic, the consequences of such treatment and atrocities are often fatal; why should it be allowed to continue that the lives of some of our most vulnerable are left so undervalued in both society and the justice system? The 1 in 100 people in the United Kingdom who are born with this condition who will most likely experience this kind of abuse is far too many to not implement stronger sentencing for those who commit targeted violent attacks against the autistic community. I urge the government to advise and work with the justice system to put in new legislation, and to follow the guidelines in sentencing already regarding racially, religiously and sexually motivated attacks; let them be just as protected under hate crime laws as everyone else. Thank you and please share & sign!
Petition to UK Parliament, European Parliament, Theresa May MP, Boris Johnson MP
Justice for George Low - Pressure Turkey to hand over his killers to stand trial.
In August 2016, George Low and his friend Ben were attacked while on holiday in Cyprus. George was killed and Ben seriously injured. The two attackers then fled to the unrecognised state of the TRNC and were arrested. Up to now Turkey has refused to hand them over to stand trial.The aim of this petition is to urge the UK government to exert pressure on Turkey to hand over the two men accused, so as to stand trial for the murder and attempted murder of the two British citizens in Cyprus. As of now, both suspects were put on trial in the TRNC for illegal trespassing into a military zone. One is already free and the other will be in less than a year. After this they will both be free to live their lives with no consequences for the crimes they committed in Cyprus.
Petition to President E.D. Mnangagwa, Boris Johnson MP
Justice From TEMBA PETER MLISWA who illegally seized my company.
Mr President of The New Zimbabwe Your Excellency On behalf of my wife and two boys I humbly appeal to the Zimbabwe Government and ZANU-PF for justice through compensation from Temba Mliswa. He used previous President (Your Mentor) Robert. G. Mugabe's name in vain for personal Gain / Greed to illegally seize my company Benbar/Tromps! Temba Mliswa claimed the President "Sanctioned" this illegal seizure along with Hon Minister Saviour Kasukuwere (Then Minister of Indiginisation) On 18 December 2009. He wrongfully and illegally seize my company Noshio Motors (Pvt) Ltd incorporating Benbar/Tromps using a fake "Banda Trust" Mafia style dirty politics and his relative Didymus Mutasa. He stated he is "Untouchable and above the law" as he is related to you sir? 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 owner back his farm. The country recently had her monetry budget wooing back FDI yet my company was illegally seized by Temba Mliswa. My "Crime" white British FDI creating employment in Zimbabwe. I was forced to flee Zimbabwe due to death threats on my life and lost my entire investment, over One Million Pounds! My MP sincerely wrote to the Previous President, EU, S.A.D.C. AU humbly asking for their devine intervention. Zimbabwe has great potential needs FDI and the country can become the bread basket of Africa again save for CORRUPT individuals like Temba Mliswa. I love the people of Zimbabwe, their kindness, willingness to work hard in rebuilding their nation as well as their passion for God. What happened to me was wrong, immoral, illegal unconstitutional, against the law and a gross violation of my Human and property rights. My partner was a Pastor from the church his wife was running the finance department. I called for a forensic audit which is why Temba Peter Mliswa was called in. Mliswa claims a "Banda Trust" was formed, but as of February 2010 no "Banda Trust" ever existed! Mliswa, threatened to rape my Belgian wife, kidnap my 2 boys and KILL me. My "crime" EU investor! He stole from the army and Government departments. Hon Chief whip Joram Gumbo can testify to this as he personally came to see me, so too did Anti Corruption. Didymus Mutasa lied to the President as 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) Prematurely closed my case without allowing FOUR other state witnesses to testify. The whole World knows my story. You are a lawyer Mr President. The FACTS are there. Ask Florence Ziyambe Chris Mutangadura, Mishrod Guvamende and the LAW Society of Zimbabwe. I wrote to them all. Somehow Mliswa seems to be Untouchable and above the law due to his political connections. I humbly ask and pray for your intevention in order for my family and I to rightfully receive the compensation from ZANU-PF the Zimbabwe Government and Temba Mliswa as Hon T.P MLISWA was Provincial Chairman of Mashonaland West in the ruling Zanu-PF party when he illegally seized my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar. My company was Zimbabwe's Number One Choice in manufacturing but 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. Temba Mliswa must be held accountable for his own actions and decision for this heinous crime. This is not about race, or the West but about an investment which I made in good faith in Zimbabwe and created employment only to lose the entire lot to Temba's personal greed. Mliswa is in breach of the company's act, banking act, criminal defamation,obstruction of justice, abuse of office, malicious damage to my property, false police reports, interfering with state witnesses, intimidation, harassment, death threats, looting, coercion, manipulation of the judiciary, theft by conversion, defrauding S.A.R.S, ZIMRA, NEC, NASSA, stealing, extortion, forging documents, changing the CR14 and obtaining a new share certificate. I humbly and sincerely ask that as the President of The New Zimbabwe justice prevails. NO-ONE is above the law. A precident must be made to show the world Zimbabwe is defenitely open for business their investment will be protected by the constitution, rule of law and this will NEVER happen to any other FDI. It is my hope and prayer you help not ONLY my family and I in our quest for justice through compensation from Temba Mliswa but the PEOPLE of Zimbabwe who seek justice and democracy too! We thank you Mr President Yours Faithfully Paul and Brenda-Lee Westwood
Petition to Director of Public Prosecutions Tasmania
Repeat violent sexual predators like Heath Lance Chatters should never be released
Heath Lance Chatters is a sex offender who preys on young women. He has repeatedly attempted to, and successfully, abducted and raped young women. By the age of 38 he had served 66 jail terms. His most latest crimes were the abduction of a young woman from her place of work and rape. Her life, as well as his previous victims have had their lives dramatically and permanently damaged by his crimes. He is a danger to all those in the Tasmanian community and he comes from a family with a strong criminal and violent history. He has no hope for rehabilitation. He needs to be declared a dangerous criminal and never be released. If he ever has the opportunity to reoffend his next victim will die, there is no doubt about this, it almost happened to his last victim, it almost happened to me and other girls and women. He is a danger to society. Sign my petition to be forwarded to the Department of Public Prosecutions to request that he never be released.

Essex Police: Release All Documents Withheld under Public Interest Immunity (PII) to Jeremy Bamber’s Legal Defence Team with Immediate Effect.

Petition to Rt Hon.David Lidington MP Lord High Chancellor Secretary of State for Justice
Should released killers remain supervised?
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 Lidington 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.
