GOOD FRIDAY AGREEMENT Legal Advice 1998 (Implementation)and 2003 (Enforcement)

Richard Card made this Freedom of Information request to Attorney General's Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear Attorney General’s Office,

I have asked a related FOI before

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/k...

Your answer was you do not have the information.

Because this is a public site I must explain I am pursuing two FOI applications privately with Attorney General Office. The facts being in 1987 I made crime complaints in which there were allegations of end user certification fraud re export to middle east. I learned later that Kent Police did not record the crime complaints.

In 1990 Sir John Stradling Thomas MP sent correspondence in which the above history must have featured I argue. As part of report about sabotage and company fraud at a Torpedo manufacturer and at a generator manufacturer (who was subject 1987 of the above attempts to record crime complaint.

IF Nicholas LYELL Solicitor General/Attorney General had received this knowledge he would have had to declare it in the Public Interest Immunity issues that caused the Matrix Churchill case to collapse.

This FOI is to ask for disclosure of Attorney General Advice/Input to Good Friday Agreement.

The facts are Tony BLAIR entered a Peace Agreement with IRA whose terrorist planned weapons systems were POISONS, INDUSTRIAL SABOTAGE, AGRICULTURAL SABOTAGE, BOMB and BULLET. The peace agreement, as reflected in terms of International Arms Decommissioners, only applied to bomb and bullet.

The fact is there had been attempts to make crime complaint of sabotage, consistent with IRA plan, of backup generators. Since 1987 which should have become known to Attorney General from 1990.

The fact is in 1996 the IRA made its most serious ever deployment. With a viable plan to collapse mains electricity distribution in London and South East for six months. The fact is too I had been involved in sending in warnings to DTI, MOD and MI5.

In 1998, not long after Good Friday Agreement, Tony Blair brought former Soviet weapons grade material to DOUNREAY for re-processing. At a time he knew emergency backup power infrastructure was unreliable by a combination of sabotage lurking, company test falsifications fraud and poor engineering.

And it is a matter of history that Mr BLAIR did not get away with taking the risk. Dounreay power failed, Dounreay backup power failed and the blackout at Dounreay triggered the multi billion pound decommissioning of the plant. And of course the untreated soviet weapons grade material remained stored at decommissioning Dounreay for the next 17 years till USA took it in.

My first question above is what advice/input did Attorney General make to GFA

My second question is about 2003 when General de Chasterlain sent a report of concern to Northern Ireland Office. What legal advice did AG give ?

Whereas sabotage was left out of GFA the fact is explosives were IN. And I think there can be no argument that a lump of soviet weapons grade material kept available for theft at Dounreay fits the GFA explosives definition bill ?

What advice was given about Gen de Chasterlains terms of reference his powers. Which UK Govt was bound to assist ?

COMARE the nuclear advisory group, on which sat Dr Gerry McCann as a matter of public record, say they were never asked by govt about backup power on vital nuclear site safety systems.

So the question is what legal advice under GFA was given to deny Gen de CHASTERLAIN a deployment to DOUNREAY and to KENT the generator manufacturer.

Two questions for disclosure: Advice re GFA 1998. Advice re Gen de CHASTERLAIN report of concern 2003.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card

Dear AGO Correspondence,

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

To clarify. A crime complaint 1987 of end user fraud and illegal arms export. Kent Police nil action including as one of 41 lines of inquiry contributing to warnings before the 22.9.89 terrorist bombing Deal Barracks.

On 2.8.90 (A time by which Sir John Stradling Thomas MP had opened correspondence. A concern with Operation WINTER KEY being the implications of his death at his Frobisher House DOLPHIN SQUARE Home March 1991 and why it was left outs of Ops CAYACOS and MIDLAND) we moved to war. In these circumstances Kent Police would be committing treason by concealing information about an arms warehouse. You will also understand that given the IRA context it was always an offence to conceal an arms warehouse for which the IRA alleged asset was a keyholder. And in 2003 when Arms Decommissioner Gen de Chasterlain wanted to deploy to Kent then of course it was within his terms of reference to check that warehouse and what became of its contents. I think I dealt with the more complex question of the lump of former soviet weapons grade having to be stored at Dounreay.

Kent Police will probably use "Vexatious" or "Cost" to fail to answer. IMO they suffer cognitive dissonance to a serious level to maintain a delusional state in which they were fit people to swear constable oaths.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Card

Dear AGO Correspondence,

You appear to be overdue. I appreciate this is a complex matter. . I also seek disclosure of exactly what your office received of Sir John Stradling Thomas correspondence. I have pointed out a few things:

(1) If Attorneys General had studied McGill Decd properly they would have seen exactly why Sir John was contemplating raising parliamentary ombudsman inquiry. FERRERS response.

(2) Sir John's death at his Dolphin Square Home March 91 had the implication he did not raise inquiry

(3) These implications were concealed by Suffolk Chief constable 1992 (Chief constable visit to Lord Henniker re child abuser RIGHTON moving to live on HENNIKER Estate) from Ulster (Kincora) Suffolk and Islington safeguarding

(4) These implications were concealed from Islington Council WHITE Inquiry 1995

(5) These implications were concealed by Suffolk PCC and Chief constable from Ops MIDLAND CAYACOS and HYDRANT

(6) Special Branch intimidation of the ex Regional Crime Squad Dc in Gwent. Was it Sue Ryder/Leonard Cheshire related or GLADIO related or Plessey Torpedoes and Petbow Generators related ? You have clarified that Roger Evans MP application was Jan 1993 (McGill Decd) and noted this was after 1992 death of Leonard Cheshire, document burglary of the ex RCS Dc in Gwent, that Suffolk chief constable had knowledge of the burglary and the Gwent Special Branch intimidation from early 92 and that Cheshire's prognosis was not in fact terminal. and after Suffolk Chief constable 1992 visit to HENNIKER.

(7) You know that Patrick MAYHEW was compromised by his GMC history and Peter RIGHTONs associate Dr Morris FRASER. You know Nicholas LYELL was compromised by Matrix Churchill and that we transitioned to war August 1990. And of course being an old boy of Stowe like CHESHIRE and HENNIKER

(8) You know EU called for inquiry and dismantling of GLADIO 1990. Which was de facto a call for inquiry into the UK founders of GLADIO during hostilities NEAVE and SPORBORG later founding trustees Sue Ryder charity (Sue RYDER being Lord HENNIKER SOE colleague Cairo WW2 re Popskis Private Army and mission to Yugoslavia Fitzroy McClean etc)

(9) You know that New Zealand Govt called for Matron McGill Decd inquest to be re-opened 1972 and that they did so within 3 months. That the NZ Govt were lied to by Home Office (Reg MAUDLING) DHSS (Sir Keith JOSEPH) and Suffolk Chief constable Arthur BURNS 1972. And you know that Barbara CASTLE MP knew at the time about the lies to New Zealand Govt but kept quiet.

(10) You know that as Mrs CASTLE backed off the Sue RYDER deaths and appalling care standards case she expedited Michael O HALLORAN MP and Clinton DAVIES MP questions in house 1972 re the 43 child care deaths in Islington and Hackney care at Beeches Ixworth Suffolk close to HENNIKER Estate. But we do not know what connection Mrs CASTLE had made between her RYDER case and the 43 child death history at Beeches.

I hope this provides clarification and helps you locate the information re GFA and Gen de Chasterlain as he too it would seem hit the unlawful police no go area around NEAVE, SPORBORG, RYDER, HENNIKER and GLADIO ?

Yours sincerely,

Richard Card

Dear AGO Correspondence,

Thank you for your reply seeking clarification.

It would be useful for me to know what advice was given re General de Chasterlain deploying to Kent 2003.

But in the period of your delay there has been a conviction at Maidstone Crown Court in a serious firearms storage case. In fact yesterday I wrote to the Court. And as you know I am applying to Chief constable to call in HMI. And if he refuses it may have to be judicial review.

So I think I should now cancel my request for internal review and we make any further correspondence on this subject by confidential email.

Having said that your todays response to the Sir John Stradling Thomas FOI I am grateful for.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Card

Dear AGO Correspondence,

The Judge in that case has replied via his clerk. I now withdraw this FOI request.

Yours sincerely,
