Languishing on the Hate Campaign’s website, LLAAV, is an expert witness report that was not made public:
That report was faxed from the Defendant’s solicitors’ office to the Legal Department of Belfast City Council on 16 March 2011. It was intended for the respective parties and their legal representatives only.
However, at least one copy was leaked, winding up in the hands of the Hate Campaign during the ongoing court case.
Our thanks to a supporter for contacting the report author this week, who confirmed that the document was never placed in the public domain, that he was not allowed to release the report for legal reasons, and doing so could damage his credibility in future cases, i.e. in his capacity as an expert witness.
So, for the record, that report appears on the LLAAV public website, having been copied and distributed without the express permission nor with the consent of the Author, the Defendants or their Solicitors or (one would hope) Belfast City Council. It was placed on that public website to the author’s possible professional detriment; the reason why we haven’t compounded the issue by including his name here.
Using that information is another contradiction from the Hate Campaign in as much as they can be found lauding the same author elsewhere on their website, because it suits them to do so in that instance, and yet they seem prepared to put his professional reputation at risk by including a report that was specifically not to be made public, a fact the Hate Campaign will be fully aware of.
We have contacted the BCC Legal Team and the Defendant’s solicitors to find out how this could happen, especially during an active court case.
It’s a mystery isn’t it? Who do you suppose has been ‘leaking’ all this material to the HC? Perhaps the same person supplying the ‘alleged’ photos of Lennox, amongst other things – the subject of another blog entry in the near future.
