pix show Malcolm Vede, £105k head of Devon ‘social care’
A West Country woman who had her daughter stolen by the local council after a social worker invented lies of abuse has told how the authority have not apologised, and have taken no action.
The social worker – who has not been named in the backbroken local press but who we will happily if anyone tells us – has not been sacked, or disciplined, and social services refuse to even comment.
The outrageous case follows scumbag recidivist, cowering-for-cover Justice Mumby’s disingenuous and late promise to jail SS officials who take kids ‘without giving reasons’.
The mum from Barnstaple suffered her child snatched from her and put into foster care for two months.
Local reporters on a rival paper to their credit broke the news in August 2013 – that the social worker doctored minutes of a meeting, and was found out for their crime.
The SS official escaped prosecution.
Instead an ‘internal investigation’ was launched into the case and of the 13 complaints made against social services, 10 were upheld.
They promised to accede to the mums demand that they send a letter to every social service department stating clearly she had not abused her children.
She says this never happened.
She told her mainstream local paper in North Devon: “I want them to say they have made a mistake. Is that so terrible?”
“They said I made a threat to harm my child and think they can just leave it there. If you write something like that and it isn’t true, it isn’t just dangerous slander – I nearly lost my child for good.”
“If I didn’t get her back I think I would be dead. I would not have killed myself, but I would have died from exhaustion. I didn’t think I was going to get her back.”
“Devon County Council returned my child without an apology — they behaved as if they were doing me a favour, even though it was their false and misleading information that led to me being forced to court,” she said.
“The manager who signed the false and misleading minutes has not apologised to me. The social worker who wrote the misinformation about me in their file and in court statements has not apologised to me. This was dangerous misinformation that led to great trauma for my child and for me.”
Mike Bomford of Devon County Council said: “We are unable to comment about cases regarding individual members of staff.”
The investigation results were sent to the Health and Care Professions Council, which said it could not comment on what action is currently being taken.
CCN suggests that anyone facing the intervention of the SS or the hated ‘family courts’ in their lives immediately contact us and go public, or engage in vigorous and high-profile civil disobedience.
Martin Luther King wrote that man has a “moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws”. Secret courts – like the so-called ‘family’ courts – and secret state organisations which police citizens private lives – like ‘Social Services’ – constitute a system of unjust law.
After all, if the state is threatening to take your very children from you – there is nothing more they can do if you protest publicly – whether you deface public ‘art’, disrupt travel systems or more besides – except jail you. Jail is not as horrific as it is made out to be. A lot of what you hear is exaggeration or deterrent propaganda. And political prisoners are generally well treated and respected.
If you don’t take political action, violent or non-violent, you’ll find your justified anger will just come out some other way and destroy you and possibly others. Better to inflict it on those that deserve it.
