Edward Smethurst and the Panama Canal

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 13.12.11 7:40

Edward Smethurst's activities have included some kind of work, on behalf of the U.S. and British governments, and on behalf of British Nuclear Fuels, regarding the protection of the Panama Canal.

A reliable source, of whom some of you are aware, has told us that 'Smethurst made frequent visits to Panama'.

This appears now to be confirmed by the following article:

http://www.panamaamerica.com.pa/periodico/edicion-anterior/nacion-interna.php?story_id=271492

A Google translation suggests that Smethurst was instrumental in securing an international law that would require anyone 'endangering the interests and functioning of the Panama Canal' to 15-20 years in prison.

It seems a tad strange that Smethurst doesn't mention this amongst his achievements when legal magazines write up his biography (as they seem to do very frequently).

The quote which began this post has been removed (28 February 2012) at the discretion of Tony Bennett after complaints by Edward Smethurst


I believe Smethurst lost the wind farms case. Shame, I bet the value of his land/four farms in Scout Moor has gone down. You're right, Andrew Brown & Gerald McCann were both members of COMARE, a government quango that has repeatedly come out in opposition to campaigners who claim childhood cancers are more common around nuclear power stations.

I see the links you're making jd. They've all been moving within the same circles; there's a definite pattern to it all. Here's a reminder of some further links.

Smethurst was a senior legal advisor (along with his masonic buddy Alvin Shuttleworth) at British Nuclear Fuels. BNFL took on the families involved in the 'Sellafield leukemia cases' and won. The families were denied legal aid to fight for compensation. BNFL concluded - "that there was no medical evidence linking evidence to leukemia."

But then we also have Mr Smethurst's 'high up' involvement with Cancer Reasearch. Surely this is a massive conflict of interests? It looks very wrong to me.

"He has also been Chairman of the North West Cancer Research UK,
Corporate Fundraising Board and is currently an Ambassador for Cancer
Research UK."

Since Fukushima I've followed the nuclear industry assiduously. If you google Fairewinds Ass. and/or Busby - especially on the effects of radiation on children, it seems that quite a lot more information than was available at the time of Sellafield is now in the public domain.

The main points I gleaned from Fairewinds re the nuclear industry is that they know a lot of the reactors leak and crack. The financial background is most relevant here. It is apparently always cheaper to pay compensation than to make the reactors safe.
Compensation which would in any case take many years during which a large number of claimants would not longer be alive. If you're interested I'll post the link to Arnie Gundersen's video on this. His site is particularly interesting as he managed to copy some documents from the internet which were whooshed. These documents deal with the French Aviva(I have to look this up) regulator. A Frenchman who was reporting on video from Japan had nearly all his videos whooshed as well. We're not the only ones!
Basically, it shows the whole industry is thoroughly corrupt.

If I recall correctly, wasn't it Gordon Brown/Tony Bliar who were to make the decision on the future of the country's future fuel situation around 2007/08 and were 100% trying to push Nuclear fuel? ridiculing any alternatives like wind turbines etc

This is a link to the video I mentioned: http://fairewinds.com/updates
Look at the one for 2nd October.
Also if you Google Prof. Chris Busby videos you'll get a lot of information. He also did a few just on radiation effects on children. He is UK based, so might have some documentation on Sellafield. I thought it was proved conclusively that the incidence of childhood leukaemia was off the chart around there. Children and pregnant women are far more vulnerable.

Lawyer Edward Smethurst has launched risk consultancy Palladium Associates to work with businesses which have been targeted by criminals.

Mr Smethurst, who has previously acted on behalf of Kate and Gerry McCann, parents of missing toddler Madeleine, has recruited a network of investigators for his venture, which is based at Norden, Rochdale.

They include ex-Army and police officers who are experienced in tracking down missing cash and information.

Mr Smethurst said: “Firms have been forced to remove key employees to cut costs in the recession, leaving fraudsters with increased opportunity. When a fraud is suspected or uncovered within a company there is no obligation to involve the police.

“Some companies want to minimise the involvement of the police and we can often act much more quickly and without the damage to reputation, recovering assets and mitigating risk.”

Mr Smethurst said companies often do not realise a crime has been committed until after the event, which leaves them facing the difficult task of tracing and recovering missing assets.

A recent case involved a business which experienced a drop in revenues after key employees left, and a subsequent Palladium investigation uncovered a complicated plot to divert clients and cash away from the company.

Palladium was able to freeze bank accounts, recover missing money and even broker one employee back into the business to repay their debts.

Mr Smethurst said: “The risks encountered by companies today are more challenging than ever before.

“Our operatives can achieve their objectives discreetly and effectively to ensure business continuity for our clients.

“By combining our legal power with top notch investigators we get the results companies want.”

Mr Smethurst, who is also chairman of the North West Law Society Commerce and Industry Group, has won clients including Barclays and Eversheds.

And he sees new opportunities for the business with the introduction of the Bribery Act next year.

He said: “There is a great deal of publicity about the new Act, but fraud and bribery are often interlinked, so companies need to review their overall policy on both issues.”


How can this company freeze bank accounts?...Another one who has no experience of missing people, but plenty of experience in missing cash and corporate fraud

Some great info there tigger, cheers. It stinks to high heavens all this 'wider agenda' stuff eh!

On the point of Fukushima. affraid I also followed the 'alernative' news on it at the beginning. I read things by numerous experts (that obviously weren't given the same media platform as the propagandaists) that told the seriousness of the situation and how we were being lied to. What did 'the powers that be' do when radiation levels passed the danger limits? They hastily rewrote the rules and raised 'acceptable' levels! They think we're all stupid! No, the fallout from Fukushima was so much worse than what the mainstream media told us - we are sitting on a ticking time bomb of cancer & it seems some of these players know a lot more than we do about what's down the road.

Sorry to sound so negative but like tigger, it's not something I can ignore, I'd rather know. Besides, it's not christmas yet, I'll lighten up before then, promise.

Ah - how interesting. That reminds me of another public health case involving a childhood disease in which the families were denied legal aid. And, in fact, the conclusion was that there was 'no evidence' making a link between a very common childhood disorder with recommended childhood vaccine.

The Cancer Research Industry and the Cancer charities are huge business. Worth a fortune. 

But what about this - reputation management to boot:

“Some companies want to minimise the involvement of the police and we can often act much more quickly and without the damage to reputation, recovering assets and mitigating risk.”

How exactly did Smethurst help in the search to find missing Madeleine? What is his area of expertise in cases of children who have gone missing?

He is a Freeemason.

A high-ranking one.

Connections are always useful.

But he and fellow-members of Team McCann haven't found her yet.

Ah yes, the other cult operating in the McCann case. So many cults! 

As Kate reminds us on page 366 of her book: 'And, critically, let's not forget that the perpetrator of this monstrous crime remains at large'.

Yes, we can all agree on that.

'This person who stole a little girl out of her bed and away from her family has been anonymous for far too long.'

The bogey-man is still out there - ready to snatch other little girls from their beds at night. 

But, always look on the bright side of life, even when the bogey-man has abducted your innocent child.

'And as we know, there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest she has come to any harm.....' 

Oh thank goodness for that! A nice, kind bogey-man then?

'.....other than as a result of being separated from her family.' (page 367, Madeleine)


So there we have it - that 'no evidence whatsoever' phrase beloved of Gerry McCann.  Still, what's sauce for the goose is good for the gander. There is also 'no evidence' whatsoever that she was abducted by a stranger while she slept in her bed at night.

Here is man who as a teenager lost his father and became estranged from his mum.  Also, he has had to bring up three young families at the same time, not an easy task for a business man with over 57 appointments.  Perhaps his own experiences as a child, a father of six, and his vast experience of running businesses has helped him to contribute to the McCann cause.
