As a result of action taken against the BBC on two occasions – a comprehensive Witness Statement was sent to Westminster Magistrates Court on 11 August 2022 and an acknowledgment was requested in good time for a public hearing on Wednesday 17 August 2022 @ 0930.
As no answer was forthcoming a further message was sent on 16 August 2022 with the same Witness Statement with a request for it to be acknowledged before the hearing on the next day.
As no reply was received and as I represent myself, I decided to enter a plea of ‘Not Guilty’ and will be judged at a Crown Court, with a jury, in the future.
In addition, the media who had been informed of the public court hearing, had failed to respond to a Media Release of 11 August 2022.

SILENCE until in a Crown public court, with a jury & rely on my solicitor Witnessed Statement of 10 August 2022:
For those public who are unaware of the so-called lawyers ‘legal aerotoxic games’ – it can take 18 years from being poisoned in 1992 to winning in the High Court of Australia on 3 September 2010. So obviously, no rush is required now….
