Kenneth Kevin O’Dowd and the Ted Heath Photos

The “Heath Pictures Case” was one in which a person who was accused of rape, Kevin O’Dowd produced a photocopy of a photograph of Sir Edward Heath.

I have published 5 appeals involving Kevin Vizzard aka Kenneth William O’Dowd aka Kevin Kenneth O’Dowd as below, so as much as the information is public as possible. Also included are 3 newspaper articles – two from Australia, one from Glasgow [HT @thewakeupcall09] . It is not clear whether there were reporting restrictions about Heath and if that was dictated by the Court or elsewhere.

You might think that court transcripts should routinely be made public free, and past transcripts should be digitised and made available, but we do not live in a world of justness and transparency, we live in the country of the Crown Justice System, which naturally serves the Crown not the public.

Appeals

1975 Jul 25  [O’Dowd1] Kenneth Vizzard 25 July 1975 Court of Appeal [5]

1978 May 18 [O’Dowd2] Kenneth William O’Dowd 18 May 1978 Court of Appeal [6]

2008 Nov 28 [O’Dowd3] Kevin Kenneth O’Dowd 28th November 2008 Court of Appeal [7]

2010 Sept 21 [O’Dowd5] Kevin O’Dowd 21 Sept 2010 EHCR [9]

 

The one directly relevant which mentions Heath is Kevin O’Dowd 12 May 2009 Supreme Court [8]

As the appeal reveals

” 34….At the trial the appellant produced a photocopy of a photograph of AB with Sir Edward Heath and alleged there were photographs depicting her in compromising sexual circumstances in front of their child. AB denied that she had an affair with DI Wallace or that there were compromising photographs in front of their child.

35. On 14 March 1984 the appellant was acquitted of the charges of threatening to kill AB and of raping her. Subsequently the photocopy of the photograph produced at the trial was found to be a forgery, and the appellant was tried for perjury, making false statements and perverting the course of justice. He agreed that the photographs he had produced were forged but maintained that there were original photographs of AB, DI Wallace, Sir Edward Heath, and his children in pornographic poses. He maintained that those photographs were taken from him by the police. In October 1985 he was convicted of the forgery and perverting the course of justice.” [8]

The other appeals show what kind of a witness and man the defendant was. However whatever kind of witness and man he was he could still have been telling the truth. It is not clear from these disclosures, but a bit more light is thrown on this saga.

    I have doubts on Heath being a paedophile, but at the same there is growing evidence that he was not asexual,.
