I know I haven't been on this board much recently. Life has been bad all year for me and I had almost given up the will to live as it seemed the world was against me and I had no chance of getting justice.

You may remember that at Christmas last year the Police literally smashed their way into my home and I was charged with two counts of Criminal Damage and one of Harassment and Intimidation against my Policeman next door neighbour. My bail conditions were that I had to live at an alternative address which meant that I was thrown out of my OWN home for Christmas and the New Year!


Needless to say over the past nine or so months life has been hell for me, with my NFH free to intimidate me on a daily basis. This intimidation has intensified closer to the trial date. Often I have had to leave my home and stay at another address as I felt in fear of my life. As usual the Police did nothing about this and don't even to reply to any complaint I make.

The trial happened last week and I was cleared of all charges!

The Police were in on it all along and actively helped and supported my NFH in his vendetta against me.

My Barrister successfully made a Bad Character submission against both the Policeman and his wife due to their untruthfullness in the two previous times he's had me in Court (both of which I won). The NFH lied and lied throughout the time he was in the Witness Box. The District Judge was clearly exasperated by his behaviour from the outset. He was shifty and refused to answer direct questions.

One charge of criminal damage and the harassment charge were dropped because the Prosecution offered no evidence beacause, and this is unbelieveably scary, the Police had ILLEGALLY installed covert surveillance cameras watching my property and my NFH had admitted his 'own' cameras were in fact the property of the Thames Valley Police Force and he had borrrowed them from a Policeman 'mate' who works in the relevant department! All video evidence was deemed inadmissable as a result.

The law states that covert CCTV surveillance can only be authorised by the Home Secretary or a Chief Constable and then only in matters of serious suspected crime such as Terrorism, Drug Dealing, organised crime etc and not for a dispute between two neighbours, one of which is a serving Police Officer! The trial had to be adjourned and reporting restrictions imposed due to the sensitive nature of what was unveiled. The Prosecution Barrister had to call in a Senior CPS Solicitor as she was new and this was out of her depth.

The Office in Charge in the Case admitted being on first name terms with my NFH and the decision to arrest me over the Christmas period was taken for 'Operational Reasons' even though the alledged offence happened a month beforehand! My NFH even admitted he knew an arrest was imminent.

The Chief Inspector who was acting as a mediator between myself and my NFH and who offered to help me and for a long while I trusted to be genuine was in fact on the NFH's side all along and it was he who requested illegal authorisation of CCTV evidence against me! Initially, I was going to call this Chief Inspector (now an Acting Superintendant) as a Defence Witness! It's a good job my Solicitor advised against this as he was in on it as well.

Despite the NFH admitting 24/7 surveillance of me, his cameras failed to catch any evidence of me causing criminal damage!

My NFH denied all knowledge of being disciplned on recommendation of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, so we had to produce the letters from the IPCC in Court to show him. He back tracked as he was caught out lying yet again but still claimed no disciplinary action was taken against him. What happened was that despite a clear recommendation from the IPCC, Thames Valley Police ignored the IPCC findings and did nothing! This I gather, is not unheard of from the TVP (my Solictor is an ex Met Inspector).

At the end of the Prosecution case, the District Judge invited my Barrister to make a submission of no case to answer, which he did. The Judge said there was a case to answer for one charge but If the defence tendered no witnesses then the Prosecution would not be able to prove the case beyond all reasonable doubt. The Judge then asked my Barrister if he was to call any defences withnesses, he said 'no . The Judge then acquitted me of all charges.

The Judge said I was found not guilty because my NFH had lied over the IPCC findings. He had lied about evidence gathered from covert CCTV surveillance. He had lied about previous incidents, She described his dislike of me as 'obsessive' and his actions against me as 'obessionable'.

In the absense of any other evidence I was found 'not guilty'.

This trial only finished a couple of days ago so I haven't come down from a high. I only returned to my home last night but clearly there are very serious issues that have been raised from all this. Obviously, civil procedings against my NFH and the Thames Valley Force will follow. I think the media will be interested in this, most certainly my MP. However, I will take independent legal advice before proceding further.

I haven't seen my NFH since I returned home. In the past instead of behaving himself he has intensified his campaign against me. One of the cameras he installed is not there anymore as it was produced in Court as evidence. How long this will be the case is anyone's guess. I don't think my problems will end here. He has made it clear to me he wants me to get out of my own house. Let's see what happens!

Do I have the worst neighbour in the country? Probably not but this must rate right up there with the very worst.

Thanks for all your support!

Sorry to hear this, it sounds like a mess to try and sort out. Having a Policeman as a neighbour from hell sounds likes a bad scenario but I wouldn't rate it as being the worst ... yet.

Hopefully this neighbour will back down, now that the situation is changing, it sounded like they would do whatever they could to protect their backs, including being intimidating. I would imagine that the spotlight is now on your neighbour, he may not be aware of it, but you can be sure someone is watching him!

Try googling for 'corruption police uk' - there was a severe problem with corruption between 1997,1998 up to 1999, hopefully this doesn't repeat itself in cycles.

On a side note I too had a Policeman (retired 6 months ago) as a neighbour, but I wouldn't say there were any problems. I had reason to believe there was some scheming going on, I didn't really have much to fear then or now. Note: A while ago (back in about 2002), he wasn't too much in favour of me getting CCTV, he told my parents that "burglars would just put plastic bags over the top of them" ... so much for good advice. Thankfully I haven't had any more problems with burglars, or intruders.

Hello again LO :D

Wow! Well done to you, and it is good to hear you have been cleared. You have been through so much, and your NFH must certainly be up there amongst the very worse of them :(

I hope you have peace now :)

Leyton Orient, My heart goes out to you. I am so proud of you for coming through all this.
You must do everything now to make sure those who made your life hell are brought to heel including those who were complicit in the wrongdoings.

You may not have had the worst neighbour, but certainly one of the most deceitful, aided and abetted by those who are supposed to protect us from such evil. You have highlighted the collusion and corruption that many of us have come across in our battles and I take my hat off to you for fighting a very devious NFH. :notworthy:

Way to go LeytonOrient (though still a shame about the team!) Good on you for coming through this with a great win, and still with your honour intact.

It would be nice to think that you can now sail into the future with your head held high and clutching a nice cup of tea, but keep your wits about you, as you doubtless are, and you will be "Most Excellent"

Good Luck and :victory:

hey hi,

I was regretfully warned under the harrasment act by the police in my locality who fail to understand people with disability of which regretfully I have one, I have a speach impedemant which sounds a bit like steven hawkings (physics prof) although Im not a computer, this is caused by one missing dna chromosone 22.

I am living in a row of five semi detached houses, in the best looking house architecually speaking, estate agents says it is a house of architectual merit. However , I have a teacher nfh who insists on refusing to unblock a surface drain chamber which causes floods in torrential rains outside our shared porch. He has a leaking roof gutter which he refuses to get replaced and recently stole brick coping stones of what , he claims is his own boundary wall ( Why he doesnt get on and finish it the (******) when in fact it is shared under the Party Wall Act that has been confirmed by HM Land registry.

For what ever reason the nfh wife whose a health pyhcologist diagnosed my disability , instead of helping , they have been harrasing my family and taking the Pi** out of me then they got the end terrace house owner joining in as well. Shes a medical parmacist. Yes problems caused by her as well.

Please think about the Human Rights Act as we all have to live on this Blue Planet.
I just wish the b neigbours would just let us live in peace I say!! Family is important, neighbours are an incovinience
Article 8 Right to respect for private and family life

1 Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence.
2 There shall be no interference by a public authority with the exercise of this right except such as is in accordance with the law and is necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.

Congratulations Leyton Orient!

Your NFH sounds like a utterly despicable and I really admire you for standing up to him. I am so pleased that he made a fool of himself in court - I hope that he leaves you in peace from now on.

Well LO, I knew you could do it. If there was anyone that could come through an ordeal like yours, it was you. Well done on the verdict. After all this time, I can imagine it will take more than a couple of days to come down from the high.

I hope further luck comes your way so you can bring those who caused such pain and suffering to you to justice. I imagine the mental and physical scars will be there for a long time, but at least the battle is won now. you have done everyone proud here and if ever there was a success story, you are the one.

Well done mate, now the fun begins. Remember us though, we are always here for you.

I'm so glad the court case went your way and a lot of muck was stirred up for your NFH.
It is worth getting legal advice and taking this further. i hope your MP helps out now too.

Many thanks everyone. I'm just trying to get on with normal life now. Like not having to tip-toe down my stairs and not having to turn the sound off on TV - in case he hears me and knows I'm in. The camera at the back of the house has not re-appeared (but that was one that he had 'borrowed' off the Police) but the one at the front is still there. They still turn their TV volume up when I get home and he still stares at my windows as he walks by, but that is second nature now.

I received a report from my Barrister today that said, In his opinion the facts that have been revealed during the course of this trial concerning the conduct of the Thames Valley Police and to some extant the CPS are such that further detailed complaint to the IPCC should be made. It is deeply worrying that the Police were able to obtain a RIPA 2000 warrant (covert surveillance of my property)

http://66.102.9.104/...clnk&cd=5&gl=uk

for such low level allegations, if one was in fact obtained and it is only Supt. ******** word via the CPS that it was obtained - it may be noted that he was unable to recall who had actually authorised the warrant. According to the statute, except except in an urgent situation the Chief Constable would have to have signed the warrant.

Truly, disturbing stuff.

Head of TSU (usually a Chief Superintendent) will probably have signed the RIPA request. I think you ought to consider suing for damages and pain & suffering. Going through the IPCC may lead to a local resolution which will mean you can't take it any further. You might want to ask your MP to recommend a Public Inquiry to prevent this kind of thing happening again. That would be a can of worms worth opening!

I just want to add I think you are a bloomin' hero :)
