Steven George and Jason Packer – Framed by Corrupt Police and Judicial System

Steven George first came to my attention through his book which I blogged about Heartless and Heartless Too by Janella [7]

In that book published in 1998, many years before Savile died in 2012 and the issue of child sexual abuse became more widespread he named Jimmy Savile as a child abuser. He also told of his abuse by his MP adoptive father Bonner-Pink, and how Steven was illegally kept in institutions for 26 years.

He was one of the pioneering whistleblowers and to do that he had to type, print and bind the first versions himself. He was a beacon and example to others to break the silence and tell their story, whatever effort it took to do so.

That spirit and determination has been needed of late.

Due no doubt to his experiences, Steven campaigned against sex pest MP Mike Hancock. Portsmouth 3 – MP Hancocks Heinous Habits Part 1 [6] and Portsmouth 4 – Hancocks Heinous Habits Part 2 [4]

He was joined in this by his friend since 1992, and carer Jason Packer. Packer publicly released the Pasco Report into some of Hancocks predatory behaviour. It seemed to be this that triggered the authorities to frame Packer, with the Police and Hancock obviously in cahoots.

Framing child sexual abuse campaigners is a known and effective method of exerting control over child sexual abuse campaigners, see Child Sexual Abuse Campaigners and Whistleblowers targeted by state organisations [5] and England = North Korea. Jails Whistleblowers. No Trial. No Charge [3]  and “Security Services” running rogue – Deep State out of Control [2]

Packer also has Aspergers, a fact known to the authorities.

The miscarriages of justice are plain to see – the police, when arresting him, actually inserted a memory stick into his computer. Vital dates are completely wrong for Packer to have downloaded the images, the images are not even of children, the list goes on.

All this and more was ignored. The charges were railroaded through despite the facts and Jason Packer went to prison. As we have seen again and again, the corrupt and child abusing establishment protects its own.

Anyhow Jason and Steven George have survived, no doubt mentally battered and bruised, despite prison for Jason and the stigma of a false conviction and two trials, and the even more farcical prosecution of Steven for giving ONE image in Jasons defence to a journalist and the defence – which again was not a child. The false labelling of them both as having child abuse images is not an easy one to bear, as even some fellow victims of abuse, take a Crown conviction as truth.

The establishment however by its actions signals its corruptness and guilt.

Here is the story written by Steven, edited by me, which is why story varies from first person and other times Steven is referred to as Steven or Steven George. My fault!





When someone is on the sex offenders register, the general public think they are safer because of it. Juries believe the same in general also, and consider that their verdicts are fair, based on the facts. There is a big but here. What if the Jury were given entirely false information? If everything they were seeing a lie?

In the cases I am going to describe, that is exactly what happened

Case 1 – Jason Packer

Nigel Pascoe QC, authored a report “the Pascoe Report” of his findings surrounding the then MP Mike Hancock for Portsmouth South. This included his texts and conversations with a vulnerable female, Annie, who went to Mike Hancock for help.

On January 18th 2014, Jason Packer, having long campaigned against the seedy Hancock, shared a redacted copy of this Pascoe report through a file sharing site, hoping to get widespread sharing of the Report.

In the report, which Mr Pascoe did not want kept secret, it says that he considers the events to have happened, and suggests the complaint by “Annie”, was correct. Hancock was later forced to apologise.

On February 11th, 2014 Police raided the home of Mr Packer. They arrived at 6.56 a.m. they went up stairs. At approximately 6.58 a.m. Police turned the computer on, and inserted a USB stick. On a search and seizure, like this, to turn on and use the computer to be taken, is totally against accepted protocol.

The police involved were DC 3899 Hibberd, DS 2694 Mears,  PC 2195 Dunlop, PC 21582 Langford and  PC 20698 Lonergan.

It is DS Mears who is thought to have used the computer at this time. However, whichever police officer it was, they opened files and remarked on finding the Pascoe Report online prior to turning it off. They were seen doing this by Mr Packer himself.

Mike Hancock whilst being a Councillor, and as an MP, has used Police to intimidate others. (Mark Austin was taken to Court after arguing with Mike Hancock. Mark Austin was acquitted. He was then, at the time, and still is Councillor. Jez Baker also taken to court after arguing with Hancock also then a Councillor -he was sent to prison. Les Cummings charged twice by Police  over Hancock issues -convicted also, but given conditional discharge.)

We now know, on the same day, that Mr Packer was raided, Mike Hancock was asking Judges, in Court in London,  to refuse to allow the Pascoe Report to be used to help “Annie” in the civil case against Mike Hancock. Portsmouth City Council were involved in keeping it secret and redacted also.

On April 5th 2014 Mike Hancock phoned Mr Packer’s own home, that he shared with Steven George. On the phone Hancock described Packer’s arrest, and the type of files he was to be charged with, to Mr George. This was approximately 5 months before any charges were in place.

Mike Hancock also called Mr Packer, “POCKER OR PUCKER,” in the same manner Police did at the door earlier, on February 11th 2014!

When Mr Packer was in custody on February 11th 2014, he was given the opportunity to see solicitors. The Solicitors who were assigned to him, were Saulet and Ashworth. Much later Packer and George find these turn out to be solicitors representing Mike Hancock! They obviously had, therefore, a massive conflict of interest.

The system allows for solicitors to withdraw, and for the defendant to find another representative. It is difficult to think of an instance more appropriate to changing than this case in question. Saulet and Ashworth should not have represented Packer, but not only did they do so, but they turned up even on simple bail returns, when Mr Packer was bailed without charge, a service they are not normally paid for using the legal aid system.

In Packers first interview they were of no help at all, and later, when Mr Packer was charged in August 2014, they sat in silence, telling him he was going to prison, and that may be attacked there. This was directly before Packer’s filmed interview.

Their advice was “Just talk”!! Of course they wanted the Pascoe Report kept out of public view, at all costs for Mike Hancock, and had no interest in helping the man who put it online! This same interview was used in Court as part of Packer’s trial on August 24th, 2015. It appears it should not have been, as it may be an illegal interview.

Mr Hancock, defended by the compromised Saulet and Ashworth later,  was forced to apologise due to the revelations of the Pascoe Report, and he ended up stepping down as a Councillor.

In local elections in 2014, Mr George stood against Hancock and Mr Packer stood against Mike Hancock”s wife. It is thought that these actions angered Mike Hancock even more, especially when he was finally forced to stop being an MP.

Packer’s trial itself was a complete farce.

By this time, Mr Packer had already found out that Saulet and Ashworth were also Hancocks solicitors, so he got new Solicitors, Bindmans in London.

The Barrister assigned to him, a female, began by going to the prosecution, and trying to broker a deal , for a 5 year sentence. This despite Mr Packer never giving permission or instructions for her to do this, and when he intended to plead NOT guilty!  He had to change his Solicitors again, so he got Hodge Jones and Allen.

They got an image review done which looked at the calibre of the 18 charges. This is the first time that Packer became aware, that he was being charged with a legal Horror film, with adults described as underaged children!

He also was denied the right to see and discuss the files he was charged with. He did not see any of them, until his trial. So he was working blind. The new barrister, Philip Romans might not have been there at all, for all the good he actually did.

For the record, Mr Packer did not download ANY of the files he was charged with, more on that point in a moment.

First of all the horror film was shown to the Jury. Called “The Serbian Film”. It is rated NC-17, and is available from Amazon to buy in its full uncut version. It is like many other horror movies of today, such as the “SAW” franchise and the “Halloween” horror selections and many others.

The Serbian Film was described to the Jury as a Specialist Snuff Movie. No proof of that has ever been offered, from 2015 until 2017, nor could it be, in the light of what it actually is anyway!

It was accepted as a snuff movie even by Packers barrister, Phillip Romans. Romans did very little throughout the whole trial. Later Romans simply did not even bother to turn up for sentencing hearing not once but twice.

The prosecution ensured that the image review, which revealed the truth about the film, was never seen by the Jury, throughout the whole trial. Indeed the Jury saw not one piece of defence material throughout the entire trial.

The Judge, Recorder Frank Abbott, an expert in search and seizure procedures, simply allowed these total lies to remain before the Jury. The clip shown, even had “SCREENER COPY”, printed on the lower part of the clip, which means this same clip, had been sent to censors for certification!

Of the 18 charges, only three to four images were as described, all of the others were legal pornography, “Adults” yet falsely described to the Jury as children.

The law states a person must be 18 years or over to be legally on pornography sites, these females were fully developed, and on sites which declared they were of age. There was no evidence offered by the prosecution to establish any actual ages. Indeed a passport check on one file, known as “Cammies First Time”, had been done, proving all were 18 years or over. Even this file was presented to the jury as a child, with no evidence whatsoever.

During the trial, when Police expert, “John Harrison” gave his evidence, it was revealed that the Packer’s computer was not in operation before June 1st 2013. This made it impossible then for all the files Mr Packer was charged with, to be downloaded, through this specific Windows 7.6.1 computer Shareaza file sharing programme, beginning in 2010, and ending in 2012!

From the mouth of the police expert himself, the files could not have been downloaded by Mr Packer. During questioning by Mr Meredith, of the prosecution, it was obvious that Mr Packer could not have therefore done any of it. The trial continued nevertheless and the Jury found him guilty, on all but one count. This, a second horror film, a Zombie movie this time, as yet unknown, ominously still lies on file.

This document was given with other evidence showing that Mr Packer was innocent. Again, following the previous pattern, this was ignored.

At Packers trial, DC Gunner who assessed the images as being all children, was “off sick” and did not appear to give her evidence to the Jury. At his trial also, two Police Officers were sent to the Shoreham Air Crash, and they were not therefore able to be cross examined.

If one puts together all the legal errors, which we believe not be errors at all, but quite deliberate evasions, and false representation by Police and the CPS, one is left with the belief, that a gross, and deliberate miscarriage of justice has deliberately been perpetrated, against Mr Packer.

From the end of September, Mr Packer repeatedly asked for his transcript of the trial.

Judge Hetherington wrote a letter, in November 2015 saying that Packer could not have his transcript unless he paid for it himself, rather than anyone else paying for it for him. It was over £2k, he was on benefits. The judge then gave a series of rules, such as he must collect himself from the court, or pay for it and have it in prison. It took until 2017 until he finally received it, two years out of time for an appeal.

Jason Packer was sentenced to prison, on December 21st, 2015, by Judge Frank Abbott, who at the hearing once more described the legal horror movie being on the computer as a crime. Mr Packer was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for ten years.  Mr Packer spent six months in prison and he was released on June 20th 2016.

Then immediately an attempt was made to return Mr Packer to prison.

Jason Packers Second Case

In September 2015, Mr Packer researched the files on the document handed to the court. He did so in full view of the police, on a monitored computer he had bought, in March 2014 to replace his old one taken in February 2014.

PSI Matthew Lawn a MAPPA Officer, (Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangement) who is meant to help sex offenders in the Community, visited Mr Packer at home on the 26th September. He saw the research, and a copy of the legal DVD “The Serbian Film”, at a later point in October. After Packer’s conviction, it took two days to arrive from Amazon.

Matthew Lawn commented that the horror film was not a crime, and that the files identified on the document, before mentioned were adults and legal.

Matthew Lawn later however, appeared to change his mind. He waited until after Packer’s release from prison. He took  the computer, on November 18th 2015, that Mr Packer bought in March 2014. Lawn then arrested Mr Packer, and attempted to get him remanded, the next day, for images in the cache, created in 2015. The remanding was not successful.

In 2017, two years later, Mr Packer was on trial for three images from the created cache, and one image from the document, which was “Cammies First Time”, a known adult and legal film, once more described as a child, to the Jury!

During this trial, Matthew Lawn pretended he had not seen the computer until October 8th, 2015. He said it was the first time he had met Mr Packer, despite emails to Solicitors describing his comment on the legality of the files in question, on the document, and letters to CPS written at the end of September 2015. He described the computer as a new one, and lied about the earlier visits.

In this trial, Matthew Lawn described, yet again, the horror movie charges and all the other false charges to the Jury, in his first conviction. Mr Packer was limited to talking about this new case, due to legal aid rules for his Barrister, so he could actually be represented.

Once more the law worked entirely for the prosecution, who could bring up the first case to the Jury as if he were guilty. As a result Packer was found guilty.

After 7 hours the Jury found Packer guilty of three images from the cache he had neither seen nor clicked on. (Apparently now if the computer has it, it is a crime anyway, which seems to me to be ridiculous, as no one can be held accountable for everyone else”s films and comments. Only now one is!)  On sentencing Mr Packer got 18 months suspended for two years.

Third Miscarriage of Justice – Steven George

On a sentencing hearing for Packer,  a document was presented that detailed the people in the horror film, and four other files, were adults. Full details were given of their history, places on the web and other facts. The document was given to the Court, before November 2nd as well as to Mr Meredith, prosecution team on November 2nd.

Steven George gave a copy of that document to a journalist reporting Mr Packer’s case. This is the evidence that was used to charge Mr George with distribution of one image of a child. Lawn charged Mr George with one count of distribution of image of a child, on August 30th 2016.

Matthew Lawn PSI who arrested George, and charged him, was going to give evidence to the Jury in Georges case that the girl in the image was between 14 years and 17 years. (They also hid her age in Mr Packer’s case, having originally charged him with her as an under sixteen year old. This despite stating in his original charge information that she was found on a Seventeen site!)

In  May, 2017, Steven George was not allowed to bring in evidence to show that the one image, was likely to be an adult. All of the evidence about the files, and this one image, were bizarrely deemed inadmissable by QC Christopher Parker acting as Judge in his case.

Without representation, facing an impossible position, George felt forced to plead guilty. He felt unable to fight his case without fresh legal advice.

His McKenzie friend was not allowed. He did however get a conditional discharge, and it was agreed there was no sexual motivation, in handing the document, to the journalist, yet he was put on the sex register.

Afterwards an appeal was denied, but a Judicial Review found that Mr George, should not have been put on the sex offenders register and the age of the image was 17 years or more, was not even contested. This  point was conceded by the prosecution at Royal Courts of Justice, on February 16th 2018, Mr George will now attempt to sue for wrongly spending nine months on the register.

Being Found not guilty, but letting the conviction stand?!!!

My plea, procured under duress without representation, when all defence evidence was refused, remains considered as correct, I kid you not.

So despite being innocent of the charge of an under age image, and  I now am removed from the sex offenders register, after wrongly being on it for 9 months, but the conviction stands for a charge now proven to be wrong!!!!

What a mad world and how very unfair.

Further Thoughts

The Pascoe Report being put on line appears to have caused three convictions, of two people. Entirely false allegations, which appear to have been concocted to to silence a whistleblower.

Both Mr Packer, and Mr George, believe that the files used to prosecute Packer were actually placed on the computer by the Police using the inserted USB stick on February 11th 2014. The dates were then changed, of the upload from the USB stick, apparently simple to do.

One must note it is also thought the USB stick, is likely to be a training stick, used by Police for recruits to understand the difficulty of finding files which, are, or are not legal, and the manner in which they appear online.

One file in particular had almost every word, one might search for, when seeking illegal material in its title alone. It is hard to believe anyone would leave such an entitled file on their computer, unless they wished to get into trouble! Its title saying things like “Under age, pre teen, kiddie porn, barely legal, “on just one line, the titles were many, on this one file.

All the evidence we now have, supports the fact that the police used the computer for 9 minutes at the time of the raid on Mr Packer on February 11th 2014. This time is even in the transcript and there is an overwhelming case for Mr Packer and Mr George to finally be exonerated.

Despite declaring the image as over 17 in Mr Georges case, they still once more charged Mr Packer with her as an under sixteen! For another image they tried to state she was an under sixteen to the Jury, two years after she had been proven an adult! Luckily the Jury found him not guilty.

Mr. George has a document from May 9th 2017 saying “NO Order IS APPROPRIATE”, then they still put him on register, only to take him off nine months later saying I should not have been on it in the first place!!

Bent cops at the top and bent judiciary at the top, who set the example for lower down. Its increasingly hard for those good cops, judges, barristers and solicitors, but please keep on going!
