Stuart Syvret arrested and charged on Jersey

A democratically elected politician arrested and charged for something he wrote on his blog. Surely it could only happen in a tinpot dictatorship?

Not so. It happened on the "Crown Dependency" of Jersey today.

Senator Stuart Syvret wrote on his blog yesterday afternoon:
I have just learnt that I’m required at Police Headquarters at 5.00 pm this afternoon where I will be arrested and charged with supposed breaches of the Data Protection Law.

I don’t know if I’ll receive unconditional bail – if not, they’ll keep in the slammer overnight – if not longer.
As it turned out, Stuart was released and told to attend the Magistrate's Court on Thursday 16 July. Channelonline tv has interviews with him and his lawyer.

Crown Dependency? Maybe the Queen should pull the royal finger out and do something about what is happening in her name?

No - it happens in a lawful democracy. He broke the law, and what is more, admitted he was breaking the rules in his blog.

Double standards here in Jersey I am afraid. Another Senator, one of the Old Boys Network type also broke Data Protection Laws and got off scott free.

If your name is Stuart Syvret, they will do all in their power to keep you quiet and keep you down.

This Island is so corrupt it stinks. The worms are turning though.

Regardless of the Jersey situation and whether Stuart should be prosecuted in this particular instance the principle:

"A democratically elected politician arrested and charged for something he wrote on his blog. Surely it could only happen in a tinpot dictatorship?"

Would mean that any Councillor or MP had complete legal immunity to write whatever they wanted, incitement to violence, threats, libel. That cannot be a valid position.

It is disgusting, have put your link on my blog under 'interesting articles about Jersey' hope it helps to let people know what is going on in the island.

I am one of many people living in the island who is grossed out about the situation!

The Chaiwala Tea Seller PM of India - The Tinpot Dictato of India, has found the solution to COVID.The man was born to doom Hindoosthan and the Hindoos and the world.dindooohindoo

His solution is to switch off the lights for 9 minutes at 9 pm and light candles,torches and cell phone lights – the sign of impending and inevitable doom.

His aim is to plunge the Indians into the darkness of the shit hole – in which they are already permanently resident.The Darkness of death in a morgue
or a grave - the premonition of death.

The Indian PM’s mother was and is a dishwasher.

I week earlier he asked Indians to beat utensils,in public,on the roads - as an ode to his mommy

Another Indian Genius is using Cow Piss,on a large scale, to cure COVID

When Babar was at the doors of Hindoosthan – Hindoos were praying to Shiva,and sacrifcing goats,bulls and temple prostitutes.Rest is History

I really worry about the US and EU health systems and the Indians working in it

1300 years ago, a man called Beruni made a prophetcic statement on the worth of the Indian race

The words of Beruni are prophetic,in this regard.

– The Hindus believe that there is no country but theirs, no nation like theirs, no kings like theirs, no religion like theirs, no science like theirs.
– They are haughty, foolishly vain, self-conceited, and stolid.
– They are by nature niggardly in communicating that which they know, and they take the greatest possible care to withhold it from men of another caste among their own people,still much more, of course, from any foreigner

God save the white man who rely on Indians in technology and medicine
