It is difficult to get enough distance from one’s case to write

  • a chronology of events
  • an A4 summary
  • lists of official documents and their relevance
  • an index for a bundle of court documents
  • a press release.

That’s why McKenzie Friends are needed to help, support and assist in a variety of circumstances.

Above all, victims need to be HEARD. Therefore, exposure in mainstream media and online publications matters. But it rarely helps to return children or to win cases and appeals in court.  

This guide to writing a Position Statement is good, as it may help you to ‘take stock’, when writing it all down.

Our latest focus are Letters before Claim as ‘warning shots across the bows’: the announcement to the Defendant that a Judicial Review (JR) may be filed. JRs are the ‘remedy’ for public authorities.

But Letters before any Action are useful to consider!

Otherwise, it seems that victims of child snatching or any other white collar crime do well in exploring all avenues of complaints, but INTERNAL ones. Ombudsmen never seem to get it right for our complaints.

For the system of public authorities and professional institutions is simply too tightly knit, too determined to protect one another, when it boils down to particular individuals.

It’s a sad conclusion.

Only karma can be the ultimate judge, it seems…

    A4 page? strangely Dug Pig demanded that…shortly before the worst happened.
    that’s what they do- torture you for years so no hope of a summary fitting on a single page (American versions lil bit bigger…) no matter how tiny text font you use….then demand the a4 page, then seriously escalate it…..
