Len Lawrence email to Official Solicitors Office

Below is a copy of an email Mr Lawrence has just sent to the Official Solicitors Office. It is only by exposing corruption, that the public learn about it and that something may be done about it.

Len Lawrence’s case is a clear case of corruption in the judiciary, medical profession and police.

In the context of this blog about child abuse, his case demonstrates the extreme problem in the courts when dealing with cases of child sexual abuse and forced adoptions.

People go to the official authorities thinking they will get justness, but they actually get justice, Crown justice which is corrupt and takes the opportunity to kick them whilst they are down and then rip them off.

Justness has little to do with justice. British Justice, Crown Justice is not justness, they are two completely different things and people should not confuse the two.

Just yesterday I was contacted again by Clare Wakeman, devasted at finding corruption in her case in Wolverhampton with Her Honour Judge Bush and desperate for help. I published some of Clare’s story before 2015 My Story Clare Wakeman Part 1 [2]

Len Lawrence was a Pilot poisoned by fumes from the engine. He was sectioned, locked up, they stole his house, and he was left with nothing and then kicked out onto the streets.  A pattern that is repeated across the country.

The Official Solicitor’s office [3], part of the Ministry of Justice is used to hold parents who are certified under the Mental Health Act. In 2006-9 this was about 622 parents. This allows the Official Solicitor to take control of any children the parents have, and the children are then adopted.

This can be extremely lucrative for the industry who make money from this. Children are also often left more vulnerable to abuse.

The International Child Abduction and Contact Unit (ICACU) is the section of the Office of the Official Solicitor that is the Central Authority of England and Wales for international child abduction and contact issues under the terms of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and the European Convention on Recognition and Enforcement of Decisions Concerning Custody of Children and on Restoration of Custody of Children [3]

If you wanted to ensure control of English and Welsh society, then you would obviously have a person or two placed in the Official Solicitors Office. If you wanted to malevolently influence matters, it would be easy to do it from the Official Solicitors Office with little comeback.

Stephen Piper Caseworker Office of the Official Solicitor

Now that we have a live email address for you the questioning will begin..

You played a significant  role in 2005 in myself  being evicted onto the streets of Buckinghamshire, whilst I was incapable of legal discussion and understand with an acquired brain injury.

Stephen Piper you also held at least four Court of Protection, Medical Certificates that you failed to disclose to the Court of Protection.

How many other extremely vulnerable persons have you failed to register  with the Court of Protection in the past 12  years ? I and others  intend to find out.

22 February 2005 Caseworker   Stephen Piper, Office of the Official Solicitor   XXeve.pipXX@offsol.gsi.gov.uk [part redacted]

Ref LNF41919  Dr Tony  (Consultant Psychiatrist)  does think that it would be a good idea if the Court of Protection were involved, because of Mr. Lawrence’s history of financial mismanagement.    I said (Stephen Piper) that if Mr. Lawrence recovered then the Court of Protection could come  out.

Leonard Lawrence Ex Royal Navy, Government Service, made homeless by caseworker  Stephen Piper,  and others

ps   The Queen’s Bench Division files  that  Master Basal  Joshua  Yoxall-Harary   withheld from Lord Justice Munby and the Court of Protection  in 2012 have also  been recovered  for me,  so  have the pages that were torn out of  my case files  that  were held by the Official Solicitor’s office.   Did  you tear those pages out  Stephen?

Email from Richard Casson to Kay Cowie re Steven Piper for Official Solicitor; and Sarah Benfield, managing Lawrence affairs.


On further investigation it appears Solicitor Helen Mary Clift has interesting connections

  • Stephen Piper is a caseworker in the office of the Official Solicitor that acted in Len Lawrence’s case in 2005/6.
  • Stephen Piper reported to solicitor Helen Mary Clift, office of the Official Solicitor.
  • Helen Mary Clift acted in Lawrence case at Slough and Reading County Court in 2005 and 2006, but did not disclose to any judge the Court of Protection Medical Certificates that were issued to protect him.
  • Helen Mary Clift also acted in the recent Shropshire Council, Hollie Greig case. Brian Gerrish & Robert Green
  • It is understood Helen Mary Clift did not disclose the payments awarded to Hollie by the Scottish Criminal Injuries Compensation Board to Mrs Justice Pauffley.
  • Prior to joining the Official Solicitors office Helen Clift worked as a Family solicitor in  private practice in Reading, Berkshire. I believe the firm was Blandy and Blandy Solicitors Reading, where she had brief barrister Dominic Brazil, 1 Kings Bench Walk Chambers. Barrister Dominic Brazil  has been suspended from practice for the past 14 months.
  • Barrister Dominic Brazil acted for Lawrence’s ex-wife. Dominic Brazil was able to have Lawrence certified without a medical, and placed under the Official Solicitor where Helen Clift took control of his affairs.
  • Helen Clift chose Dominic Brazils friend, barrister Nicholas Allen, 29 Bedford Row Chambers, to represent Lawrence’s interest. Barrister Nicholas Allen never disclosed the two Court of Protection Medical Certificates that were sent to him.
  • Helen Clift was identified as Legal Director ICACU at conference at a London Embassy
  • Family Justice Council, Appointment Committee  Helen Clift

The Family Justice Council selection panel :

  • Alex Clark (Secretary to the FJC and Private Secretary to the President of the Family Division) (Panel Chair)
  • Helen Clift (Senior Lawyer for the Official Solicitor)
  • Nicholas Crichton (DJ MC Retired) (independent panel member and former District Judge member of the FJC)

Helen Clift SRA ID:164442 (Senior Lawyer for the Official Solicitor)

The name Helene Clift is listed as Legal Director,  International Child Abduction and Contact Unit (ICACU)

Was Helen Clift or Helene Clift   ever  the Legal Director,  at the ICACU  ?  I am advised not.

Solicitor Helen Clift SRA ID:164442 Lawyer for the Official Solicitor withheld  from the Court of Protection and the Family Division five Court of Protection medical certificates  issued to protect former airline pilot Leonard Lawrence.

The  former Chambers  of Mr Justice Stephen Cobb  QC, 1 Garden Court Chambers, identified  Leonard Lawrence as  incapable of legal discussion and understanding. This was due to an acquired brain injury from organophosphate poisoning.

Solicitor Helen Clift SRA ID:164442 Lawyer for the Official Solicitor also acted in the case of Hollie Greig,  a vulnerable adult with a  “cognitive disability”.   Is it correct that Helen Clift  failed to disclose to Mrs Justice Pauffley, High Court Family Judge, two payments made to Hollie Greig from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority one of £8500 and  one of £5000  following assaults against Hollie when she was a child?.

Kate’s medical forms:

At the meeting below there was a further, more private meeting,  between Lord Justice Munby and a few others.

The discussion that took place would be helpful to the Ambassador of the Democratic Republic of Algeria.   .
