UPDATE: What our lawyer says about Justice for Chelsey

Tommy RobinsonShillman Fellow

This week I met with the expert lawyer we hired to fight for justice for Chelsey Wright.

Chelsey’s case shocked the nation:

A mother of three from Sunderland who went out one night, and then woke up in a house full of Syrian migrants.

She had been raped and beaten. And police refused to charge any of the men.

Working with Chelsey and her family, we did several things:

We presented a massive petition to Sunderland police, with more than 100,000 names on it, demanding justice.

We erected a huge billboard in the centre of the city, with the simple words: Justice for Chelsey.

And most importantly, we hired a top lawyer to press the Crown Prosecution Service to do their job, and go after these men.

Recently, I caught up with our lawyer, Daniel Berke, in his Manchester office.

Here’s what he told me:

Daniel was meticulous. He hired a former senior police officer to do our own private investigation into the crime. He retained a top QC. He drafted legal appeals to the CPS decision not to prosecute the men. Daniel was relentless in the pursuit of justice.

Finally, the CPS agreed to meet with Daniel and show him their evidence. And it became apparent that there were flaws in the case that would make it a steep uphill battle in court.

That’s fine — this whole situation has been an uphill battle. Our plan was to start a “private prosecution”, where Daniel and his team would prosecute the men on our own.

But the CPS made it clear that if we were to do that, the government would use their power to take over that private prosecution and cancel it.

So: even if we were to proceed, the CPS would stop us.

Daniel and Chelsey discussed these developments, and Chelsey asked him to share this letter from her to the public:

I want to thank the people who have supported my campaign for justice. Over a hundred thousand people have supported me from all over the world and I am truly humbled and grateful. I am thankful to Tommy Robinson and Rebel Media for organising the campaign and for making my voice heard and to Daniel Berke, my lawyer for fighting for me.

Above all I want to thank the people of Sunderland and my family and many friends who have been with me every step of the way for the hugs and smiles when I needed them most.

I suffered an awful sexual attack and physical assault. Whilst the external injuries have healed, the internal ones will remain with me for life. There is not a day which goes by when I do not think of what happened to me and I continue to have nightmares. It has been the kindness of family, friends and strangers which has carried me and kept me going.

I have been told that the Crown Prosecution Service will not overturn their decision not to prosecute. I am aware that there is an option to look at alternative legal methods but these would be long and could not guarantee justice and I am simply too exhausted and emotionally drained to continue.

I never intended to be a champion at the front of a campaign. Really I just want to be a mother to my three children. The assault has left me feeling empty and depressed and what I need to do is to recover my health and spend my energy on my children. Therefore, after much soul searching I wish to end the Justice for Chelsey Campaign.

I do ask that if one good thing happens as a result of this campaign, it is this - that people look out for women who appear vulnerable on a night out. Even if the woman is a stranger, check she is okay and get help if needed. Let's all take care of each other.

I ask that I am now able to take the time I need to recover and to be with my family.

Chelsey Wright

That is a beautiful letter from a woman who has been through a horrific situation. Meeting Chelsey and getting to know her and her family was a great honour.

She has earned the respect and admiration of countless people in the U.K. and around the world.

This is not the end we wanted to this campaign. But we can be proud of what we accomplished — supporting a woman who was abandoned by the system; putting the police on notice that they cannot ignore cases of sexual assault and Muslim rape gangs; and showing mercy and kindness to a woman who the authorities preferred to forget.

The Justice For Chelsey campaign wouldn’t have been possible without people like you, who marched at our rallies, signed our petition, and helped pay for the legal battle. Thank you for that.

I promise to keep fighting for the causes we care about.

What a perverse double standard? The prosecutors were perfectly happy to put 30-40 year old accusations against Rolf Harris to trial (unsuccessfully for the second batch of accusers). One of the cases against Harris involved an 18 year old singer in a band (from the 70’s from memory) who alleged that he made a suggestive remark to her and that his hand touched her bare back (she was wearing a low-backed dress). That was it! And the prosecutors said “Yep, that’s strong enough to prosecute…let’s roll the dice and see if a jury are prepared to put him away for another 5 years”.

Whereas with Chelsey she’s been drugged and raped: they beat her up and dragged her back off the street by the hair when she tried to get away. There’s DNA evidence, eye witnesses, CCTV, and she reported the crime immediately—And that’s not enough? Bullshit. What a sinister betrayal of British Justice and of women and girls like Chelsey. Those clowns appear to have no idea of the value of the traditions they are trashing—and I’m not even British.

It is totally incorrect to say that nothing can be done about a CPS decision not to prosecute. You can apply for a judicial review in the Administrative Court.
commented 2017-11-04 05:10:17 -0400
Gutted to hear this, proof if we ever needed it that the CPS and indeed the Police are wracked with political correctness. Even if the evidence wasn’t as strong as the CPS wanted, then it was well within the public interest to charge these people and let a jury decide. Disgusting, absolutely disgusting. Well done Tommy and good luck to Chelsey.

Maybe you Lawyer should also investigate the “Writ of Mandamus”. It’s an old English Law that compels a public official to DO HIS/HER DUTY.
https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/mandamus
This act is applicable to all English speaking Countries, inc. Britain, US of A, Australia, New Zealand, etc.
It’s bloody disgusting that our Politicians can be bought off.
Hope this helps.
commented 2017-11-03 19:19:38 -0400
Were the 6 suspects brought in because of CCTV footage identifying them? If so why wasn’t there any discussion on DNA comparison found on Chelsea and the suspects? This doesn’t equate to maintaining high legal standards in any way shape or form.

Vigilante justice is where this is heading. It won’t be pretty either…"

Vigilante Justice may be all that’s left…………..

When I was growing up, the UK was considered a good land. Land of the Magna Carta! A democracy. Now it protects rapists, kidnappers and terrorists. It punishes good people instead, throwing them to Islamic criminals it allows to run its prisons. It viciously punishes anyone who stands up against this evil as Tommy Robinson knows. So are Tommy, the Rebel and their team the only knights left in Great Britain?

Ron Joseph,

Do you think Britain has any relevance to the rest of the world at the present time?
commented 2017-11-03 02:03:40 -0400
The UK started getting screwed in the 90’s under Tony Blair, Cameron lied to the voters and brought in enough Muslims to start the take-over. Theresa May as Home Secretary did nothing and as PM has done nothing. There is no upcoming Politician that can dig anything out of the ashes.
Short of revolution, Britain will be of no relevance to the rest of the world in 20 years.
commented 2017-11-03 01:40:50 -0400
It’s pure BS they can’t proceed. They neglected to talk about Kidnapping charges and Involuntary Confinement.
commented 2017-11-02 20:41:37 -0400
Its unfortunate that British law is more about protecting the guilty than getting justice for the victim.

Its no different than that the are police no longer looking into muggings and robberies but putting their efforts and finances into checking Internet sites for what they determine to be “hate” or “incitement” – usually against non-Muslims.

There is no Justice for Chelsea. No victory for the people and one segment of the population (Muslims) being protected by the state. If the non-Muslims would riot in the streets, and in larger numbers than in the Muslin riots, maybe there would be a change.

Chelsea’s story would be the stuff of a documentary or a film. It would be an embarrassment to the elites of the British justice system, and deservedly so.
commented 2017-11-02 17:57:41 -0400
Breaks my heart and I don’t even know Chelsea. People who deserve justice will have it served.
commented 2017-11-02 17:56:21 -0400
It’s not right.

I hope Chelsea can find a way to live a happy life. This should not have happened to her. Those barbaric immigrant men from a barbaric Islamic ideology have once again proven the incompatibility of that political/social/religious system which treats all non Muslim women as infidel fair game with any civilized western culture.

It is astounding really, that these invaders are allowed to come in and get away with gang raping women and children.
commented 2017-11-02 16:41:04 -0400
As in Canada, people with authority, in the UK and all other Western Countries, are very scared of riots and retaliation by Muslims Savages and their glorification of death. Western Governments are, in fact, already controlled by this Death Cult.

We should ask ourselves, how many Muslims are in our Police Forces? How many Muslims in our Armed Forces? What will these individuals do when the civillian population starts to fight back and they eventually will. Who’s side will a Muslim Police Officer be on? Who’s side will a Muslim Soldier be on?

Weak spineless Politicians, of all stripes, have allowed this situation to become reality and I am sure that some of them did so with full agreement in the Muslim agenda.

We can only blame the Left and Saudi Gold and corrupt Politicians.

Justin Trudeau is a good example.

Wish Chelsey all the best ,

So basically try to bring anything the elites don’t want out in the open and they will intervene to silence it ?.
It is becoming more clear now that we are having our laws used against us and our country and culture destroyed before our very eyes and ears now.
commented 2017-11-02 14:22:13 -0400
Dan Mancuso – I’m betting it is the second reason. Nothing else makes sense, other than sovereign countries governments are conspiring with the UN, to destroy their borders, and their cultures, for their goal of a one world government, under Islam. Agenda 21 says it all. Everything is being brought under UN control, and we just have to look at what Trudeau, Wynne, Notley and rest of the premiers are doing. They are implementing this agenda.
commented 2017-11-02 13:37:53 -0400
I’m not sure what it was that made me tear up while reading Chelsey’s letter; her victimization at the hands of those vicious Moslem savages, or the even more vicious attack and victimization at the hands of the state, for having been victimized by those vicious Moslem savages in the first place…that is beyond adding insult to injury.
There are only two reasonable explanations as to why the state protects Moslem savages and terrorists, while demonizing, and attacking old stock citizens. One – they really are afraid of being called names, or two – the state really is promoting the Moslem invasion because they really do want to destroy their own country for their Globalist masters…
When – not if, but when – the revolution comes, it will be ugly.
Just a little reminder for those ‘in charge’, what happens to fascist scum:

What do you mean by ‘flaws in the case’? This purposely vague language doesn’t exactly inspire confidence that we are being told the full truth here.
commented 2017-11-02 12:58:46 -0400
- A brave woman thrust into a disgusting situation. I guess we can thank God that she managed to get away from those seventh century savages in the first place. Best wishes to Chelsey & her friends & family going forward. We lost this fight but not fighting it would have been a bigger loss.
commented 2017-11-02 12:43:14 -0400
The power of the state is not on the side of the victim, if Muslims’ are involved. The politicians have the police on leashes, in order to promote the globalization of the world. Look what Junior is doing in Canada now, raising the age of a child to 22, this is so that the rape gangs will not face persecution as adults. This is a disgusting move and it mocks our laws, and our people. Shame on those involved in denying Chelsea justice!
commented 2017-11-02 12:36:13 -0400
Too bad. You need to sue the government who are like the enablers in the Catholic church who allowed children to be sacrificed predator priests.
commented 2017-11-02 12:26:10 -0400
So are the police and legal system doing anything?
commented 2017-11-02 12:10:53 -0400
Like most of you I am disappointed with the British justice system. Even with the help of over 100,000 signatures and able assistance of a legal team Chelsey was let down by the police , the CPS and the politicians, Britain’s should hang their heads in shame. Chelsey has shown tremendous courage throughout her ordeal and she and her family have our prayers.
The legal justice system is set up under jurist prudence. Take the case of O.J. Simpson, he was acquitted of murder but was found guilty in a civil court and was required to pay millions of dollars. This would be the civilized way of doing justice for Chelsey.
BUT!!!
The way the Isamists would do it, they would gather a gang and kill the rapists.
Preferably I would rather donate to a fund and sue the asses off those pigdogs. Get every penny they have or will ever have.
name the country your opining from……mine is CANADA
commented 2017-11-02 11:40:36 -0400
As disappointing as this outcome is, let us consider the half full glass.

Due to Ms. Wright’s bravery, overcoming her emotional scars, a bright spot light was shone on the justice system as it now exists in the UK. That is, there is no justice for working class single mothers. This spotlight illuminated the fact to the world wide Anglo-sphere. It is now known that the country which originated the concept of justice for all, no longer believes in justice. We now know that justice for all has to be sought elsewhere, outside the legal system

God bless Chelsea for strength to get this far and grant her greater strength to continue her life as a mother to three children who need her.
commented 2017-11-02 11:39:05 -0400
It’s unfortunate Chelsea doesn’t wish to continue. If they were to continue, I’d make the following points.

First, yes the Crown can withdraw, but only on one of 2 grounds. Not in the Public Interest (which they’re obligated to explain and would not be able to), or No Prospect of Conviction, which is not accurate either. T

I’m going through the exact same thing right now, where the Crown told the judge that if she issued process he’d pull it, but I’m fighting that. Here in Canada we do a ‘pre-enquette’, where you go before a judge to argue the merits of the case, and the Crown argues against the case – in order to weed out frivolous charges. Usually, you end up getting into a prima facia case (full details). So if the judge issues process, no prospect of conviction becomes null and void, and they’re left to argue Public Interest, which is easy to circumvent. And, if they succeed in pulling it, one can seek a Mandamus forcing them to proceed. If you proceed and get a conviction, I’d then turn around and file charges of Attempting to Obstruct against the Crown so’s they never do it again!!!
commented 2017-11-02 11:35:30 -0400
Those of us who supported both this campaign and Rebel Media with financial contributions deserve more than this. What were the grounds for the CPS’s refusal to proceed and their threat to block it if the lawyers proceeded?

This isn’t good enough. Don’t tell me Tommy has allowed himself (and more importantly Chelsey) to be fobbed off by the Establishment?
commented 2017-11-02 11:24:58 -0400
How the hell do cases of the women who falsely accuse men of rape get to court then and where are these men now. Good luck Chelsea, your kids will help you through this and I hope you find peace.
