Hollie and her mother Anne are still living in Shropshire and both were deeply touched by the number of cards sent by supporters on Hollie's recent birthday. Both are in good spirits , they are looking forward to Christmas and in order to clear up any possible misunderstandings they are not subject to any form of supervision from Shropshire Council or any other body. Nevertheless the council has sought to prevent Hollie and Anne attending meetings where their case is discussed. Hollie is now 31 years old, competent and exercises her right to vote, amongst other things and I regard these restrictions as a cruel and flagrant breach of her human rights.
In respect of the criminal charge which has been brought against myself, I have not yet been advised of a trial date in spite of the fact that nearly ten months have elapsed since I was arrested for Breach of the Peace in Aberdeen as I was preparing to distribute leaflets about Hollie's case. Standard procedure is that a trial date is set immediately after a person is charged but no-one has been able to provide an explanation for this delay. I am still bound by bail conditions which require me to report to my local police station twice per week and prohibit me from entering the city of Aberdeen or the county of Aberdeenshire.
I have a great deal more information on Hollie's case and the ongoing cover-up which I will share in future blogs. I would welcome your comments and will do my best to address any points which you may raise
