During the recess, a learned colleague supplied me with the following information that I should like to bring to your attention.
Exhibit 10 an article from 'The Lawyer' dated 12th October 2012 alerting the public to the fact that Personal Injury Lawyers, Russell, Jones and Walker have now become a quasi 4th Emergency Service after the Fire, Police and ambulance services in the UK and are, now 'on standby' to handle the Savile claims !
My reference to this company and it's interests in this particular case is important because, BEFORE Slater Gordon and Liz Dux in particular became the friendly face of the Savile claims, both she and another albeit younger, friendly face in the form of Alicia Alinia were BOTH employees of RJ and W !
My submission that the defendant suffers a GROSS inequality of arms gains weight when you appreciate just what he/they are up against financially if nothing else. Let me explain !
In April 2011 Jimmy Savile was still alive while Liz Dux and AA were still working for a comparatively small British firm.
The start of 2012 saw moves by Australian Giant Slater Gordon to mount a takeover of RJW
Not an inconsiderable adversary I'm sure you will agree Ladies and Gentlemen but what the solicitors acting for the Trustee's of Jimmy Savile's charities FORCED into closure on 23rd October 2012, might lack in financial and other strengths, it makes up in sheer Dunkirk spirit, as it battles on against not only the claimant's lawyers but also those representing the estate, Nat West Bank.
October 22nd 2012 sees the transmission of another documentary this time made by the BBC or should I say, Meirion Jones' crew and whose primary objective appears to be one of intent on biting the hands that feed THEM !
Now here is where things get even more surreal because, amidst all the other nonsense spouted on this program, Ms Dux herself comes out with this remarkable accusation !
To date, ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury no such 'paedophile ring' has been identified at the BBC or anywhere else for that matter ! And, it is not the most surreal accusation/claim that will be made about Jimmy Savile !
Tomorrow I will tell you more about these sinister claims and introduce you to a few of the very real people who bravely challenged them and their tellers both in print, on television and online ! Have a good rest until then !
