Former British Ambassador and Human Rights activist, Craig Murray, being sued for libel faces bankruptcy

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 10.09.17 9:49

Former British Ambassador and Human Rights activist, Craig Murray, who has written articles on the McCann case (https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/?s=mccann), and has been vocal about them on twitter is being sued for libel by the Associate Global Editor of Mail Online - although this has nothing to do with the McCanns. But he did say this about them: "No politics tomorrow.  Instead there will be a short post entitled – Amanda Knox, Oscar Pistorius and the McCanns.  Guilty as hell."

Snipped from his post (which Tony can relate to): "This next document goes to the heart of the astonishing system of repression that is English libel law. These are the claimants’ judge approved costs of £104,000, which should I lose I might well have to pay, in addition to my own costs plus assessed damages. The wildly disproportionate effect of using a libel claim to bankrupt somebody and destroy their lives needs to be highlighted. This means for the wealthy to silence and ruin the poor needs to be exposed for what it is."

"English libel law is recognised throughout the world as a draconian affront to democracy. Its survival is due not only to the fact that it is an invaluable tool for the wealthy to use against poor radicals, but also to the fact that libel is a very wealthy industry, feeding money to rich and influential individuals, including of course not only the libel lawyers but also the judges and court system which are all part of this massive vested interest, which is extremely well represented in the Westminster parliament."

So what does 'freedom of speech' really stand for - you can say whatever you like as long as you don't say it out loud?

The UK draconian libel laws are nothing but a well oiled machine designed to feed the rich (that includes lawyers) and destroy the not so rich.  A perfect tool to create and maintain multi-billion pound PR and media organisations like Bell Pottinger, the Murdoch empire and that other bloke who ended up behind bars.
