GOOGLE:  Leonard Lawrence Pilot 30 August 2012 His Honour Judge Simon Oliver, Reading County Court, is  entirely satisfied by the non disclosure of the 1990 NHS & COMMUNITY CARE ASSESSMENT REPORT by the Official Solicitor to the Senior Courts and Ratcliffe Duce & Gammer Solicitors Reading. His Honour Judge Simon Oliver, is also entirely satisfied that Leonard Lawrence  interests were fully and fairly protected by the Official Solicitor and Ratcliffe Duce & Gammer Solicitors Reading by the non disclosure of the 1990 NHS & COMMUNITY CARE ASSESSMENT REPORT. Others do not support His Honour Judge Oliver,  Reading County Court , view Law Society investigating Solicitor report dated 30 September 2009. Disclosed 2011 The Official Solicitor was acting as Mr Lawrence's representative and Guardian and as such had the greater duty to protect him. I consider that the majority of the steps that Mr Lawrence feel should have been taken to protect him should have been taken by the Official Solicitor rather than the firm including the decision and action necessary to invoke the Court of Protection. 24 August 2011 Law Society, Legal Services, disclose correspondence sent by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority to the Court of Protection on 20 July 2010 Mr. Lawrence had come within the jurisdiction of the Court of Protection The Law Society, Solicitors Regulatory Authority, FINAL REPORT CRO/97504-2008. "Issues raised by Mr Lawrence are significant and should be investigated and responded to on the basis that they indicate areas in which the legal system appears to have failed to sufficiently protect an extremely vulnerable adult". Dr Vanessa Davies, Director, Bar Standards Board We do not have any powers to make Mr Brazil, Mr Allen answer your queries. The current Official Solicitor (Mr Pitblado) wrote to the BSB on 24 June 2009. In his letter he explained that the point had not been reached at which the Court of Protection should have been notified of the existence of the CP3. As the BSB was entitled to do, we took views of the Official Solicitor Mr Pitblado. The fact that you were a patient was plain from supporting documents. 24 August 2011 Solicitors Regulatory Authority to the Court of Protection; Mr. Lawrence had come within the jurisdiction of the Court of Protection Hospital Medical Director Report reference: Leonard Lawrence He was then medicated to the extent that he lost mental capacity. During the period the Official Solicitor of the Supreme Court acted as his Guardian ad Litem, three Court of Protection medical certificates (CP3s) had been obtained but not registered with the Court of Protection.  He was, therefore, for nearly 18 months regarded as a mentally ill patient without access to the Court of Protection. During this time considerable amounts of his assets went missing. Emeritus Professor of Medicinal Chemistry Malcolm Hooper Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry 11 (209-215) In the Lawrence case there appears to be sound grounds for legal action and significant compensation claims for mistreatment and false diagnoses and an appalling failure of the duty of care. Graham C. Holt Collegium Basilea (Institute of Advance Study), Basel, Switzerland Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry 11 (216-220) At this point the tenor of the presentation changed dramatically from calm, logic science to the harrowing story of one pilot, Len Lawrence.... His story was one of costly legal battles to prove that his brain injury was due to chemical exposure and that he was not mentally unfit. What emerged was a story of incompetence by the medical profession, who lacked knowledge of the symptoms following exposure to neurotoxins and the unfairness of the legal profession in not allowing him to see data concerning his own personal records in their reluctance to tackle those culpable.

Date: Sat, 5 May 2012 Subject: Re: FW: Neurotoxins Dear Len, Thank you for the update - I hope you are OK? - it must be rather shocking and frightening to learn your cognitive function is getting worse. I hope the hospital consultants can help you. I would be happy to talk to them if you think that would be helpful. I would be very interested to know how you get on in the future so please keep in touch if you can? Best wishes, Sarah Consultant Haematologist Dear Mr Lawrence I am sorry that we will not be able to accept you as a donor. This is because of your history of organophosphate poisoning that has left you with ongoing nervous system problems. Consultant Haematologist Doctor. (Commander Royal Navy) Dear Len, Thank you for keeping me updated and of new matters arising concerning OPs. I have as promised been circulating to various media agencies what you permitted me to do. My wish is that sooner rather than later someone is GOING TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY or are we again going to suffer another PTSD sage. A diagnosis put up in the DSM II in 1968 then ignored entirely until the Americans decided to name another illness with all the criteria of Reactive depression into PTSD in 1980 called the DSM IV. One wonders if a deliberate and orchestrated campaign is again being waged against such people. Since the Hillsborough Disaster when to Police officers witnessing that incident unfolding knew things were wrong. A cover up by Police, Lawyers and all and sundry. An absolute disgrace by all named that has caused so much heart ache, distress to so many bereaved families. This has now been confirmed by families NOT GIVING IN to deceptions. My one wish again is that by individuals like yourself and Lee and others, NEVER GIVE IN, but stand resolute and strong in bringing down these corrupt and deceitful persons who were responsible for all your hurt and pain too. Rest assured I am alongside you in exposing this unlawful and criminal activity. I do thank you Len, as you are on the button with all this as I am trying to catch up as they say! Take care my friend, and look forward to meeting and having another chat soon. Professor of Psychiatry Dear Leonard, Good to hear from you.  I hope you're feeling well. Thanks also for the report. Things seem to be moving now.  Best wishes, Go Bravely Court of Protection Date: Tue, 17 Jul 2012 11:59:42 +0100 Subject: RE: Leonard Lawrence Dear Mr Lawrence, HHJ Simon Oliver does not hold a Court of Protection nomination.

On the 20 April 2012 Paul Hicks a solicitor with Simpson Millar LLP informed Leonard Lawrence that on disclosure of Leonard Lawrence files from the Official Solicitors office, May Maughan, Deputy Official Solicitor in a telephone conversation had admitted liability for Leonard Lawrence non registration with the Court of Protection by Helen Clift. How Simpson Millar LLP could represent Leonard Lawrence since 2008 without gaining his case files is unknown. The documents St Philips Chambers had sought could not be found on inspection of the Official Solicitors files in March 2012 at Simpson Millar LLP office. Photos taken show pages having been torn out of files. Some of what was found is detailed below Alistair Pitblado, Official Solicitor to the Supreme Court submission to the Bar Standards Board dated 24 June 2009 identified that the court was not told by his solicitors that Court of Protection CP3’s had been processed, that psychiatrists had identified that Mr. Lawrence required the Court of Protection, and that Mr. Lawrence interests must be protected.
  • a) Rosemary Sanders (Solicitor at OS) 27 June 2005 email Sarah Benfield RDG Solicitors: Once we have a satisfactory CP3 we can apply to the Court of Protection for authority to sign a release of his rights of occupation... this would have to be supported by a court order dealing with the property. As matters stand the psychiatrist has completed a CP3.
  • b) James Beck (Solicitor at OS) 1 August 2005 I spoke to Sarah Benfield RDG Solicitors: Obviously, the sale cannot proceed until we have Court of Protection authority.
  • c) Piper, Steve (OSPT) Sent: 02 February 2006 I said that the OS would send the form to the Court of Protection who would make the appropriate order.
  • d) Clift, Helen (OSPT) Sent: 02 February 2006 To: Piper, Steve (OSPT) Subject: RE: Mr Lawrence ok essentially it should allow the solicitors to release to him the funds they are holding.
The paper trail of the Official Solicitor sending the form to the Court of Protection to make the appropriate order has not been found. Helen Clift made the financial decisions not Laurence Oades the former Official Solicitor. Records identify Helen Clift failed to disclose to two District Judges and His Honour Judge Elly the need for the Court of Protection. Helen Clift had also given the instructions to gain Leonard Lawrence signature on legal aid forms.

However there is no evidence of this". HHJ Simon Oliver has clearly not read the following information: RDG Solicitors notes 18 August 2005 disclosed 2012:- Simon Calhaem “wife has accepted an offer and has exchanged contracts without recourse to the Official Solicitor” Simon Calhaem “wife is in breach of the order by not agreeing the sale price,” 25 August 2010 Nicholas Allen 29 Bedford Row Chambers I am unable to provide “evidence that supports my oral statement to DJ Fortgang that the Official Solicitor (Laurence Oades) (sic) agreed that the house be sold for 622,000.” Mr. A.

The Right Honourable Lord Justice Munby President of the Family Division with effect from 11 January 2013 please be advised of the following: Ref: Hearing Royal Courts of Justice 14 January 2013, Leonard Lawrence accused by Alistair Pitbaldo Official Solicitor and May Maughan Deputy Official Solicitor to the Senior Court of an abuse of the legal process following Richard Anelay QC Deputy High Court Judge Family Division establishing in September 2010 that Leonard Lawrence had been a patient subject to the Court of Protection and the Civil Court of Appeal in November 2012 enabling Leonard Lawrence to Appeal to a High Court Family Judge. 1. On the 10 September 2012 Senior District Judge, Principle Registry Family Division directed that “The file, in the first instance, should be sent to the Court of Protection”. The case files were posted to the Court of Protection on 9 October 2012. Following a referral to the Court of Appeal Mr Lawrence is still awaiting a hearing before a High Court Family Judge. On the 13 December 2012 Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors have identified that they failed to make a full disclosure to the Court of Protection. 2. May Maughan Deputy Official Solicitor has advised that she will not make available to the Queens Bench Division, Royal Courts of Justice for the hearing on the 14 January 2013 Leonard Lawrence case files held by the Official Solicitors Office. 3. May Maughan Deputy Official Solicitor also advised that she not make available to the Queens Bench Division, Royal Courts of Justice for the hearing on the 14 January 2013 Court of Protection Medical Certificates CP3′s and other certificates of mental incapacity issued under Part V11 Mental Health Act 1983 that were not disclosed to the courts by Helen Clift a solicitor within the office of the Official Solicitor. 4. May Maughan Deputy Official Solicitor has advised that her office does not hold co pies of the case files of the external legal representatives Ratcliffe Duce & Gammer Solicitors Reading Berks that were appointed by the Official Solicitor. May Maughan personally sent part of Ratcliffe Duce & Gammer Solicitors files to Simpson Millar LLP Bristol on the 20 March 2012 that included the disclosure of a note book from which pages had been cut out. The notes of the conference held at 29 Bedford Row Chambers prior to the Final Hearing that Mr Day of counsel had sought have still not been disclosed by the Official Solicitor to the Senior Court. 5. Whilst May Maughan Deputy Official Official Solicitor finds the assistance afforded to Mr Lawrence by the police amusing, a Chief Constables Office directed the case to a Detective Chief Superintendant this enabled Mr Lawrence to recover May Maughans correspondence to the Law Society and the Law Societies internal files. The Law Societies internal files directs liability at the Official Solicitor for failing to register Mr Lawrence with the Court of Protection. To be blunt the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) files identifies that SRA case worker Laura Markham and others within the SRA did not believe May Maughan the Deputy Official Solicitor submission neither did the SRA appointed investigating solicitor. 6. Counsel written opinion supports the Law Society internal report and directs liability at the Official Solicitor for failing to register Mr Lawrence with the Court of Protection at the material time. In a video recorded with Barbara Hewson at Hardwicke Chambers, Ms Hewson accused the Official Solicitors office of several human rights violations against Mr Lawrence, this video was made available at the Cranfield Workshop in October 2011. Ms Hewson view was supported by other lawyers and expanded upon in the Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry ISSN 1512-0856. 7. 20 March 2012 further disclosures by May Maughan Deputy Official Solicitor of Leonard Lawrence case files when Alistair Pitbaldo Of ficial Solicitor and May Maughan Deputy Official Solicitor to the Senior Court was of the belief that Leonard Lawrence was out of time to take legal action against the Official Solicitor. The partial disclosure confirmed that Court of Protection Authority had been required on at least four occasions, identifying that the submission by Alistair Pitbaldo Official Solicitor to the Bar Standard Board could not be supported by the Official Solicitors case file. 8. The former Official Solicitors Laurence Oades counsel Nicholas Allen 29 Bedford Row advised that he cannot support the submissions he made at court. Barrister Mr Allen has disclosed correspondence he sent to his opponent Barrister Dominic Brazil 1 Kings Bench Walk on the 5 August 2005 stating that he simply accepted all that Mr Brazil requested of him not knowing what the consequences were. In September 2010 Dominic Brazil 1 Kings Bench Walk informed Richard Anelay QC Head of Chambers 1 Kings Bench Walk that Mr Lawrence had been a patient subject to the Court of Protection and on the 16 April 2012 Barrister Dominic Brazil informed HHJ Simon Oliver Reading County Court monies should not have been released to Mr Lawrence without Court of Protection approval. 9. A search of the Bar Standards Board (BSB) services providers computer back up system of deleted emails identified that Barrister Caroline Wilbourne 1 Garden Court Chambers has sought advice from the BSB what to do. Barrister Caroline Wilbourne is refusing to make any comment. 10. Whilst searches by HHJ Campbell, HMCTS and others of the court safe’s at Slough and Reading County Court failed to locate missing court hearing tapes thanks to the Detective Chief Superintendant it can be shown that on 18 August 2005 Barrister Simon Calhaem 29 Bedford Row informed His Honour Judge Charles Elly that the former Official Solicitor Laurence Oades had not agreed the sale value of the property 38 Dukes Wood Avenue, Gerrards Cross, Bucks SL9 7JT. HHJ Elly stated that for the Official Solicitor to agree the sale value would in any event undermine many of the points of jurisdiction, HHJ Elly was not happy to leave the matter with barristers. Helen Clift and Miss Wilbourne 1 Garden Court did not return the case to HHJ Elly but were complacent that Dominic Brazil 1 Kings Bench Walk furbished a false statement to District Judge Fortgang alleging that Laurence Oades the Official Solicitor had agreed the sale value of the property 38 Dukes Wood Avenue, Gerrards Cross, Bucks. 11. 16 April 2012 Mr. Day, St Philips Chambers advised HHJ Simon Oliver of the following: FINAL ORDER OF D.J. FORTGANG IS NOT VALID AS IT HAS NOT BEEN SENT TO THE COURT OF PROTECTION. Electronic records identify that Mr Day received what is described by Paul Hicks Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors as an angery phone call from HHJ Simon Oliver the next day. 12. Disclosure by Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors on the 13 December 2012 show that Mrs. Motteram & Mrs. Ballard, Divisional Managers, Official Solicitors Office identified that The Official Solicitor was not authorized to make financial decisions on Mr. Lawrence’s behalf 13. Lord Justice Ward [2009] EWCA Civil 1122 Marco Pierre White –and- Withers LLP 29th October 2009 Comment by Lord Justice Ward 63.

    That these public servants continue to function ‘beyond authority’ for so long and cover each others’ backs just goes to show how brave people like Leonard are. Fighting against all the odds, the truth will out.
    Stick with it Len, more good folk are becoming aware.

    Len didn’t ask for these problems; they were foisted on him by unscrupulous people who knew that they were doing wrong. How many more people are affected thus? How many does Len Lawrence represent? Remember that OPs are damaging the whole population – children and foetuses included. These are our families that are being damaged. Keep up the good work, Len.

    Dear Len, On reading your well documented and carefully prepared account submitted for ALL the public to see, I am amazed that any person, yet alone individuals purporting to be medically trained and within the Law up to Bar Council, even worse that Judge(s) could EVER HAVE MADE such a decision of YOU lacking MENTAL CAPACITY. That may be so where an individual has been coshed over the head with a blunt instrument. It appears in your case that instrument was a cosh consisting of medication. We do not know what contents were given or present within such medication. These preparatory acts may have been instigated to remove you from the medias attention of course, and a quick and sure way of silencing you or having contact with the outside world. Again i return to the fact this is another factor not standing up to you suffering a lack of mental capacity merely by your recall and attention to detail all that time you were hospitalised. Today reading once more through the chronological sequence of events and the behaviour and conduct of many named who should have represented you whilst THEY ALLEGE YOU WERE INCAPACITATED is damning yet alone criminally accountable for many offences. It is only a matter of time where a brave Lawyer and medical representative will stand up and be counted and fight your cause. You and I also know Len to do so will invoke the wroth and fury from such professional organisations to discredit such individuals as has occurred in the past. However, many are NOW listening Len, and to the many former Pilots who have now lost their licences to fly from signs and symptoms of organophosphate poisoning. Sadly leaving many NOT WITH AN ILLNESS but a BRAIN INJURY. The question then has to be asked why are so many Military personnel having been exposed to such even from the Gulf War when we knew such was surfacing and termed “Gulf War Syndrome”, and now even worse Afghanistan where many are presenting with tremors, nausea, headaches and skin sensitivity and soreness? Are not these the same signs ans symptoms which have led to many taking their own lives? This disgrace and cover up by both Governments and certain Petro Chemical companies colluding together may just be the tip of the iceburg. I know also you have evidence Len to substantiate this. So May I personally on behalf of so many who presently are in no fit state to fight their cause, Thank you for your stand and remember as you know NOW TOO WELL, there are many standing alongside you and of course Lee to expose this most unlawful and disgraceful and deliberate deception by so many to an even greater number of innocent victims. Good luck Sunday at Trafalgar Square.

    Anyone who has a single doubt about the above version of events, should consider for a moment why the above named, senior legal professionals have not taken action to protect the integrity of their professional name and competency? (not a single one of them) After all personal brand is paramount in the service industry and for many of those named, this site appears on page one of a google search for their name. It’s not like they wouldn’t have the finances, time and professional ability to take action. So maybe they fear something else, like only proving Mr Lawrence’s case for him?

    There but for the grace of chance go all of us, when catastrophic failings of both the legal system and the diagnostic health system occur.

    If only the above were the whole story…
    Len lost his Pilot medical and could not continue flying – this was due to organo phosphate poisoning due to a known problem with toxic additives use in aviation oils – Cases in Australia were settled long ago re this but not in the UK.
    Following Len’s marriage break up he was admitted to the Godden Clinic and was incorrectly diagnosed/medicated. Medication and incorrect treatment continued in the NHS for years to follow.
    3 incapacitation certificates were issued but the legal advisers failed as was their legal duty to register them with the court of protection.
    His house was sold unlawfully without the CofP’s consent – a matter which all legal advisers were aware should not be done and a derisory settlement made to Len with considerable adverse financial inferences made against him by a district judge – John Fortgang in Slough who should not of made any order as he was not appointed by the Cof P. Another Judge – Jones disqualified herself from any dealings in the matter but then continued to make judgements against her own order disqualifying herself.
    Solicitors Radcliffe Duce and Gammer in Reading were reprimanded by the Law Society and maximum compensation awarded to Len – but even this was derisory amount.
    Len was subsequently referred to Professor Turnbull a consultant to the CAA who made a correct diagnosis, and Len got on the road to recovery – a very long one.
    Every legal party to this event has tried to suppress Len, and quite frankly one should consider they should all be held liable for Len’s substantial losses and compensation.
    The gravity of this matter is such that it needs attention in the highest court in the land. I would suggest that a most senior high court judge be appointed to review this case in conjunction with the attorney general
    Good luck Len

    I don’t understand how so many people could have been hurt by the OS, had their assests stolen away from them and yet they are allowed to continue this fraud and abuse against some of the most vulnerable people in our society. No one is above the Law. You’ve got them Len!

    Len, never give up, you are now out there fighting and they will now know that you will get the truth told. You as a pilot are a truthful man and are not only speaking for you but all people who fly around the world.

    I am beginning to think that the UK legal system having grossly failed Len he should refer the matter to the European Court of Human Rights.

    Best wishes for success and a satisfactory conclusion.

    I have been another victim of the criminal organisation known as the office of the official solicitor. The head of this organised crime network, Alistair Pitblado & staff, Joseph Goswell, Zena Soormally and Adelaide Samson-Tandoh ALL conspired with my corrupt probate solicitor Elizabeth Fry of WARDS solicitors Bristol to knowingly commit a gross act of fraud which involved obtaining a false medical report from a corrupt retired Bristol GP Christine Hoyte, a medical report completed behind my back with no medical, five months after the GP had last seen me for a sore throat and with no history whatsoever of mental incapacity. The report which all authorities refused to let me have sight of stated I lacked the mental capacity to communicate decisions or understand anything anyone was telling me & as such the probate case following the death of my late Grandmother whose death was as a provable result of deliberate NHS malice by the colleagues of corrupt GP Christine Hoyte, was handled behind my back & without my input by Elizabeth Fry of WARDS solicitors who acted directly for Alistair Pitblado.
    In conjunction with a corrupt, non court of protection apoointed judge, DJ Michael Daniel of Bristol County Court, these criminals arranged behind my back, the sale of my home of 43 years, bought in 1936 by my late Grandmother & fully paid for before I was born.
    On 18th May 2011. without any notice or warning, I was violently evicted from my home by 8 bailiffs who came through interior walls with sledgehammers.
    I had / have multiple disabilities which were known to the corrupt parties, including, an arthritic crumbling spine, asthma, angina, PTSD & Agoraphobia. I was thrown onto the street with nothing more than the clothes on my back, supporting the bailiffs were at least a dozen Avon & Somerset police officers who I informed were aiding and abetting a serious criminal offence but most of them were smirking.
    My home with a value of £160k, was auctioned by solicitors for £126k, the opponent, Gran’s estranged daughter who had produced a provably fraudulent will received £44k, her solicitors Veale Wasborough received £38k, Elizabeth Fry of Wards solicitors in the name of the Official solicitor paid themselves £37k,( I had been paying legal aid for the 2 years of this legality to Wards solicitors ) only recently after living in severe poverty for over 12 months have I received just under £7k as settlement in this matter.
    A few months prior to my unannounced violent criminal eviction I obtained a crime report number from A&S police against corrupt District Judge Michael Daniel, not only did A&S police not investigate the report they assisted in the violent eviction as this cctv footage will show.

    This was arranged by Elizabeth Fry & Alistair Pitblado, acting in my best interests as an alleged ‘protected party’

    The only thing protected by this corrupt system is the bank balances of these criminals, abusing persons by wrongfully having them classed as lacking capacity without medicals for the sole purpose of stealing & personally financially gaining from the theft of a persons entire estate.

    Jonathan Djanogly of the MOJ ignores any and all communications sent to him regarding these known practices of organised crime committed by & protected by his establishment.
