More Problems For Chief Constable Maxwell

101 Things To Do In Whitby

Real Whitby Has Been Sent A Copy The Following Letter, From Richard Bowsher To MP Julian Smith

Dear Sirs

I understand you are both contacting the N. Yorks. Police Authority to express your concerns about keeping Mr Maxwell in the position of Chief Constable even though he has been found guilty of disreputable conduct and to being the first Chief Constable for more than 30 years to have had to face gross misconduct charges. As a consequence, he has brought the N. Yorks. Police into disrepute.

You have good cause to be concerned. He cannot be trusted. I have made repeated allegations to him, since early 2008, about the corrupt behaviour of two senior officers within the Professional Standards Department but he, and the now departed Deputy Chief Constable Briggs, deliberately ignored them and tried everything they could to quash them.

But when I complained about Maxwell and Briggs to the NYPA they also deliberately did nothing to rectify the situation.

They conspired to corruptly suppress my allegations probably because at that same time, it was being reported there were allegations of corruption relating to a Superintendent P Ackerly. (He, apparently, was in charge of Training, and it was alleged that he and his wife, who had set up a Training Services company, had received £400,000 without going through formal procurement processes).

It had also been reported that Maxwell had allowed millions of pounds to be paid to Suppliers and Recruitment Agencies , again breaching Rules.

Very often, it appears, there were no competitive processes and in some cases it appears there were even no contracts.

It is clear the NYPA have a lot to answer for and are directly responsible for allowing Maxwell and Briggs,and other senior officers in the NYP to operate, over a long period, in a corrupt manner.

But they did nothing about correcting it. Maxwell was only properly investigated when an outside Force had to be brought in (the Staffordshire Police) to do the job the NYPA should have been doing.

Their Chief Executive is Jeremy Holderness and their Chairman is Jane Kenyon and I would advise you to be very cautious in any dealings you have with them.

Their main aim seems to be to hang on to their positions at any cost and to do whatever is necessary to achieve this. They are not fit for purpose and their positions should be subjected to a serious review.

The Maxwell/Holderness/Kenyon relationship is an unhealthy one and needs to be terminated immediately in the public interest.

I have maintained a full and detailed file on my dealings with the NYP and NYPA and should you want further information I am happy to help. My telephone number is 01584 890502.

Yours sincerely

Richard Bowsher

Details of the corrupt activities of the NYP and NYPA are being released to the Media nationwide to ensure maximum coverage.

    In connection with the Murdoch hacking scandal, Clegg had this to say about Sir Paul Stephenson: \”When the public starts losing faith in the police it\’s altogether much more serious and we really are in some trouble.\”

    Now comes the news that NYCC Councillors are seeking a vote of no confidence in Grahame Maxwell.

    \”The council’s members include Jane Kenyon, the chairman of North Yorkshire Police Authority, who has publicly supported Mr Maxwell’s decision not to resign.\”

    Both out, I say.

      My 82 year old, wheelchair-bound mother is the victim of serious crime and abuse.

      Her abusers include chief officers of NYP, including Maxwell, and the senior management of NYPA.

      Corrupt police officers in York have attempted to defraud my mother of her assets, have helped unlawfully evcited her from her house before trying to sell it fraudulently.

      For two years now, a professional fraud investigator has been working on this case. He has accumulated enough evidence to have Maxwell et al jailed for years.

      Of course, Pudney, Holderness and Kenyon of the NYPA have been doing their best to prevent the law being upheld here.

      Nicolas Long, an IPCC commissoner, is also facing criminal charges for his role in this affir.

      What seem to be going on is that York police and social services are targeting isolated old people and plundering their assets. I would ask anybody with a similar story to contact me viw this website.

      Trouble is when Clegg says “we really are in some trouble”. He is not talking about the public being in trouble. He is talking about himself, his billionaire mates and the collection of corrupt politicans, judges, councillors & police officers.

    @ Frank:

    You\’re right. This is a very courageous effort by Richard Bowsher. His allegations are very serious indeed.

    If GM and JK do NOT sue, then the inference is that RB\’s allegations must be true.

    In which case, it looks like a case of SUE or RESIGN – assuming, of course, that there remains a shred of common decency in the higher echelons of the force.

    Which I doubt. So they\’ll probably just brazen it out. Shame.

    A little pragmatism is in order here. You cannot expect that people of integrity will make it to the top of their professions.

    Those who reach the summit are, by definition, the best climbers. That does not suggest for one moment that they are honourable (or even average) human beings.

    They are simply more unscrupulous and self-serving than the common man – or even the common criminal.

    Calls for the Arrest of Chief Constable Maxwell

    On 19 June 2011, the fraud investigator working on the case of Grandma B wrote to the IPCC regarding the attempts by North Yorkshire Constabulary (NYC) and the City of York Council (CYC) to discredit her carer (me) by making a series of false allegations against her. One of these false allegations was made by Mark Bednarski, a former York social worker who falsely accused her carer of assaulting him. When her carer pointed out that Bednarski was a black-belt in martial arts, while her carer is middle-aged and not fit, CYC withdrew the allegation and fired Bednarski.

    This ex-social worker then fabricated an harassment allegation against her carer, leading to the issuing of a bogus harassment warning by NYC. The warning was neitrher signed, nor dated and as such not legally valid. Despite dozens of requests to produce the evidence and a valid harassment warning, Maxwell et al have refused to do do.

    The fraud investigatopr then wrote the following to the IPCC,

    “Peter, Peter’s solicitor and I made repeated requests to see the witness statement, the leaflet and the e mails to Inspector Moreton, PC Homburg, Inspector Cain, Superintendent Winward, Chief Constable Maxwell, Deputy Chief Constable Cross, Mr Lemon and Mr Read, I also submitted a Freedom of Information request. Assurances were given that Superintendent Winward and Detective Inspector Ellis would respond but our requests were ignored. It is asserted that the reason that these requests for a signed copy of the letter, the witness statement, leaflet and e-mails, were ignored is because these officers know that the e-mails either do not exist or are stolen, the leaflet does not support the harassment warning and that the warning is without any evidential foundation and are trying to protect Inspector Moreton. I would therefore request that you record a complaint against all of these people with a request that they are arrested for harassment, attempting to pervert the course of justice and conspiracy to defraud and request a n investigation by officers from another force, preferably Metropolitan Police Scotland Yard.”

    We’ve still not got a reply from the IPCC….

      I have known Peter Hofschroer for many years – he is an honourable and scrupulously honest man. I have also known over the years the North Yorkshire police and have worked with other UK police in various capacities. For many years whilst working abroad (both in the Army and the FCO) with other police forces I used to tell them that they should be more like the UK police. I returned to live in the UK in 1997 and what I have seen and experienced since then makes me realise I was speaking nonsense – I would not recommend that any other police force copy the UK police. I feel very sorry for the rank and file police and the many decent policemen and women who do have a real committment to their duty and to the public. There is an old Whitby saying that ‘a fish starts to stink at the head’ and it seems to true of most of our so-called elites. I take a quiet pride in the fact that, so far, the Army seems not to have been so infected.
      Finally, it seems almost beyond believe that, with so many and varied complaints against senior members of the North Yorks police, they are still able to escape serious investigation – one wonders why?

    “Grahame Maxwell: No confidence motion rejected”

    It seems that NYCC Councillors are not in touch with the mood of the nation.

    They have voted to keep this self-confessed cheat in his job – so as not to spoil his obscene pension entitlement (due in November).

    You can almost hear them whispering “There, but for the grace of god, go I”.

    The fish starts stinking from the head, indeed.

    A lady friend of mine, dating a police constable, was telling me that hey boyfriend said, “never tell the police you are going on holiday, because you can be sure your house will get done over”.

    Especially as I know someone who has recently had their house ‘done over’.

        July 21, 2011 at 7:51 am

        When the police found out Grandma B was on holiday, they tipped off her abusers, then watched as they forced entry into her house, changed the locks and unlawfully evicted her. She has now been stranded abroad for two years trying to regain possoession of her house.

        The police report mentions her older son and grandson removing property from her house. They failed to make any arrests.

        Instead, they fabricated false allegations against her carer to deter them from returning, so that her abusers could (fraudulently) sell her house.

        Inspector Colin Moreton ánd others were clearly expecting a share of the proceeds of this crime.

        Chief Constable Maxwell did not lift a finger to protect an 82 year old invalid. It does not take much to work out why.

        So long as police officers are at large, it is not safe for old people to live in their own homes.

      On the morning Grandma B’s husband of 60 years died, the police unlawfully raided here house, allowed her abusers to charge in and assault this frail 82 year old before bawling abuse at her over her husband’s still warm corpse because she had refused to let them steal her life savings. When I tried to stand between the abusers and my mother, who has a history of falling and breaking bones, police officers assaulted me, pushed me out of the way and threatened to arrest me.

      What would Mum have done alone with Dad’s body with me locked up?

      The British police are terrorists and abusers.

    July 21, 2011 at 11:33 am

    This e-mail was recently sent by the fraud investigator working on Grandma B’s case to Jeremy Holderness of the North Yorkshire Police Authority, mentioned by Richard Bowsher above:

    Dear Mr Holderness,

    Thank you for your e mail, which I read with incredulity.

    You have completely missed the point.

    In my e mail correspondence (see below) I made the following Complaints:

    1. That Deputy Chief Constable Sue Cross had deliberately entered false information on an official letter.

    2. That Chief Constable Maxwell had appointed an Deputy Chief Constable Sue Cross to draft a request for a CPS Review of a case in which both he and Deputy Chief Constable Cross were accused of misconduct, this being a conflict of interest.

    3. That Chief Constable Maxwell did this to ensure that the request could be drafted to ensure that the CPS findings would there would be no criticism of him, which is an abuse of his position.

    4. That Deputy Chief Constable Sue Cross had accepted the assignment of drafting a request for a CPS review of a case in which she is accused of misconduct, which is a conflict of interest.

    5. That Deputy Chief Constable Cross has rejected my allegations of fraud and abuse of Mrs Hofschroer, but without stating the reasons for her rejection and is unable to provide a list of the evidence she relied upon in coming to her determination. In short she is just maintaining her position perversely, presumably because she is unable to concede that her force mishandled the investigation into the Hofschroer case and is trying to protect Inspector Moreton.

    6. That Deputy Chief Constable Cross has stated that allegations of abuse made by PC Brocken and PC Crossan quoted below made to a woman who was distraught at the death of her husband earlier that day do not constitute emotional abuse, when in fact they clearly do. It is obvious that by perversely maintaining this position, Deputy Chief Constable Cross is trying to suppress evidence of crime and abuse, to protect Inspector Moreton and has expressed views in an official letter which are contrary to force policy.

    7. That Deputy Chief Constable Cross has refused to re-open the Hofschroer Case even though the available evidence indicates that the investigation was mishandled completely by your force, even though the Ombudsman and IPCC Commissioner Long have both recommended that the entire case should be re-opened. Again Deputy Chief Constable Cross is simply ignoring evidence and perversely maintaining a position that is contrary to law and evidence in order to protect a corrupt police officer.

    8. That Deputy Chief Constable Cross has perversely maintained that her force did not mislead the Home office in its response to enquiries from Lord Maginnis, without responding to any of the evidence that it did. It is obvious that by perversely maintaining this position, Deputy Chief Constable Cross is trying to suppress evidence of crime misconduct and protect Inspector Moreton.

    9. That Deputy Chief Constable Sue Cross contravened Force Policy and instructed that North Yorkshire Police should not accept any communication by e mail about the burglary of Mrs Hofschroer’s home and only accept postal communication, which is slower and inconvenient. As a result of this directive, Mrs Hofschroer was discriminated against, causing her distress and this directive served no other purpose than to cause nuisance and distress to Mrs Hofschroer and to inhibit the speedy investigation of the burglary at her home. Subsequently as a result of new photographic evidence sent to North Yorkshire Police by e mail, the investigation into the burglary has been re-opened. Further the reason given for the Deputy Chief Constable’s directive, -that written communication is sent by letter is clearer than if it is sent by e mail- is the most ridiculous statement I have seen in thirty years as a Chartered Accountant.

    10. That Chief Constable Maxwell and Deputy Chief Constable Cross have upheld a harassment warning from PC Homburg which is unsigned, undated and not supported by any evidence, and is the key document in a 500,000 Euro international fraud that has been organized by police officers in order to protect them from prosecution and to pervert the course of civil proceedings in Austria.

    In his response to my e mail, Mr Pudney only addressed complaint 1 and ignored complaints 2 – 10, this being contrary to law. Therefore I repeat:

    Please can you:

    1. Fully and properly record and investigate all of the complaints I have made.

    2. Record a misconduct complaint against Mr Pudney for failing to record and investigate a complaint against a Chief Officer and ask for an internal investigation.

    3. Record a misconduct complaint against yourself for failing to investigate a complaint against Mr Pudney and ask for an internal investigation.

    I thank you in anticipation of your good offices in this request.

    Mr Pudney has forwarded to me your email to him, below. After consulting the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Authority’s Ethics and Standards Board on the matter, I want to let you know the position of NYPA simply and clearly.

    NYPA has decided NOT to record the complaint against ACC Cross and has advised you of that fact. The Authority has also advised you of your right of appeal to the Independent Police Complaints Commission if you are dissatisfied with that decision. Unless and until the IPCC determine any such appeal in your favour, we will correspond with you no further on this matter.

    Similarly, the Authority has no intention whatsoever of invoking disciplinary proceedings against Mr Pudney, by way of investigation or otherwise. In his many dealings with you, Mr Pudney has behaved at all times with courtesy, tolerance and patience. His decision not to record your complaint was arrived at properly and diligently.

          @ Sharon

          Sadly, there is little point in expecting the IPCC to do anything about corrupt police officers. I’ve pasted a short biography of one of the IPCC officials who cannot and will not see anything wrong with senior officers of North Yorkshire Police abusing vulnerable people and constantly breaking the law. Presumably, criminal behaviour is “normal” for somebody like him. When you read his biography, you will see his background:

          Mike Benbow, Director of Standards and Quality

          Member National Association of Retired Police Officers
          Ex-Senior Investigator, Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland 2001-2003
          Ex-Police Officer, Dyfed Powys Police 1974 – 2005
          Third Son Member of Dyfed Powys Police Special Constabulary,
          also employed by Dyfed Powys Police in Communications Centre, also First Responder with Welsh
          Ambulance Service.
          Second Son employed by IPCC as Investigations Support Officer


          Not just an ex (bent) cop, but the whole family appears to be in on the racket. Covering up for police crime would appear to be in his blood.

          The streets of Britain can never be safe with people like Benbow at large.

    Cllr Jane KENYON – Chair NYPA – Councillor NYCC & SBC


    By a curious coincidence of timing, within hours of the (Conservative) North Yorkshire County Council rejecting a vote of ‘no confidence’ in NYP Chief Constable Grahame Maxwell, the people of this country were being assailed by the heroic words of our (Conservative) Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. David Cameron MP – I hardly need quote him at length; I am sure we all recall the passage, which included:

    “Let me state this plainly: the vast majority of our police officers are beyond reproach and serve the public with distinction. But police corruption must be rooted out.”

    Would you be so good as to explain to me, please, and to the public on whose behalf I write, just how it is – given Mr Maxwell’s belated admission of gross misconduct, to say nothing of the waste of an extraordinarily large sum from the public purse – that a good Conservative (as I have no doubt you are) can offer support to Mr Maxwell’s decision not to voluntarily relinquish his post by tendering his resignation.

    You are aware, I am sure, that the popular perception is that a bunch of ‘old cronies’ have closed ranks to protect the pension entitlement of ‘one of their own’.

    In my view, that would hardly conform to the spirit of integrity and accountability that David Cameron has repeatedly espoused.

    Would you not agree that it is now high time for Grahame Maxwell to do the honourable thing?

    Kind regards,

        Dear Cllr Kenyon,

        I note with some concern that neither yourself nor anybody on the North Yorkshire Police Authority has had the courtesy to reply to my e-mail of 11th November (below).

        I am writing to you again, as there have been further developments in this case of the systematic abuse of my 82 year-old, wheelchair bound mother by a York social worker, which continues into its third year unabated.

        Attached is an e-mail from Mr Timothy Hicks, the professional fraud investigator, who has been working on this case for two years now, to Chief Constable Maxwell concerning the latest set of false allegations made against me by officers of the North Yorkshire Police, which have been investigated impartially and, as in the case of all previous allegations made against Mr Hicks and myself by North Yorkshire Constabulary, found to be false and unsubstantiated by any evidence.

        I also attach a copy of a letter to Chief Constable Maxwell from my solicitor, which he has not responded to in order to conceal misconduct within Fulford Road Police Station.The Chief Constable obviously because he knows that I did not distribute offensive “literature” or e-mails about the discredited, former social worker, Mark Bednarski, who was dismissed for his role in the abuse of my elderly parents, so this is yet another a false allegation made by North Yorkshire Police against me.

        I understand that Lord Maginnis has now raised this case with the Home Secretary requesting that there is an external investigation into the way North Yorkshire Police have handled this case, which the Local Government Ombudsman has also described as “irregular” and has recommended that it is re-opened immediately.

        I would be grateful if you would see to it that Chief Constable Maxwell responds fully to Mr Niven’s letter and in particular to either produce the e-mails and “literature” his force falsely alleges that I wrote to Mr Bednarski or he withdraws the unsigned undated “harassment warning” issued maliciously by his force.

        I look forward to your early response to this enquiry.

        Yours sincerely,
        Peter Hofschröer

        > Mr Niven is a litigation partner in a leading firm of London solicitors, with extensive experience in criminal law. Mr Hicks is a Chartered Accountant and is experienced in investigating fraud. He has previously worked with the Police on fraud investigations, holds a commendation from Northumbria Police for assisting them to arrest a very dangerous man, gave evidence to the Nolan Committee on Standards in Public Life in 1996 and the Treasury Select Committee on the collapse of HBOS in 2009. He has also broadcasted on the BBC and been quoted in the press on issues of Financial Control and the investigation of Fraud. Both Mr Niven and Mr Hicks are both completely satisfied that my brother has committed an offence under Section 4 of the Fraud Act 2006 and that Mr Hicks has provided the Police with sufficient evidence to support a successful prosecution, however North Yorkshire Constabulary has refused to investigate the case.
        > Mr Hicks has an outstanding record of public service and has taken on this case pro bono because he feels strongly that this type of fraud should be opposed. Mr Steven Read, Head of the Professional Standards Department of North Yorkshire Constabulary, has recently written to Mr Hicks (who is also a practising Christian) accusing him of threatening Police Officers in e-mails. Mr Hicks denies this allegation of a serious criminal offence and naturally asked Mr Read to provide these alleged e-mails so he could resolve this, however Mr Read was unable to provide any evidence to support his allegation.
        > In December 2009, Inspector Colin Moreton sent me an unsigned undated Harassment Warning from PC 1974 Homburg threatening me with arrest for sending offensive “literature” and e-mails to a Mr Mark Bednarski. I have never distributed offensive “literature” and e-mails concerning Mr Bednarski and have neither his home address nor his e-mail address. Furthermore, despite thirteen separate requests to see the e-mails and “literature” that presumably support this threat to arrest me, North Yorkshire Constabulary has been unable to provide any evidence to support this allegation. Mr Read then claimed that he did not have to provide this information because he had been granted an exemption from this by the IPCC, which in fact was a falsehood.
        > As a result of this, Mr Niven has alleged that Mr Read has committed a criminal offence against Mr Hicks, has made a formal complaint of abuse of position against Mr Read, and has formally requested that Mr Read’s conduct is investigated by an officer from another force. Mr Read, a former Chief Officer of the North Yorkshire Constabulary, exercises control over police officers and police staff and effectively has the same authority as a Chief Officer of Police. I would ask the Authority to support Mr Niven’s request.
        > Mr Niven has also asked the Chief Constable to confirm that the Harassment Warning issued to me by Inspector Moreton is withdrawn on the basis that it is unsigned, undated, was served on me by e-mail by an officer other than the one that investigated the alleged offence, that it was not served by surface mail or recorded delivery, the Police cannot produce the literature or e-mails, or a witness statement or a signed complaint form, cannot even describe in the broadest terms what these e-mails and literature are supposed to have said that constituted an offence and have refused to provide me with any information on the e-mails and “literature” I am alleged to have sent on the grounds that my own e-mails are “personal information” I am not entitled to see. In short, there is no evidence that any offence has taken place. I would be very grateful if the Authority would support Mr Niven’s entirely reasonable request that the Chief Constable either produces the e-mails and “literature” in question or withdraws the Harassment Warning.

          It makes me very happy to be unaffiliated to any organisation; thus am I free to express my opinions purely on the basis of good conscience.

          In my view, Grahame Maxwell, having belatedly (to the tune of £218,000 of the public purse) confessed his unfitness for office, has now compounded that dishonour by so determinedly clinging to his post.

          If that seems mercilessly uncompromising, perhaps it is because I hold the view that the higher the office, the higher the standard of integrity that the public deserves to see upheld.

          I regret that we cannot agree on that.

                As these unsavoury revelations involving Mr.maxwell and the expenditure of £218,000, on the investigation into his behaviour, have unfolded, everyone seems to have become obsessed with trivial tittle tattle, and some of us are becoming increasingly weary of the probablyy, unfounded, and as yet, unsubstantiated, accusations being made against Mr.Maxwell and the £218,000 investigation into his conduct.
                Is this public pillorying of this senior civil servant, and the constant references to the investigation into his conduct,which involved the expenditure of £218,000, justifed, I ask myself?
                Mr.Maxwell has been found guilty of error, and he has been punished, that should be sufficient; some perspective is needed,the demands for his resignation and the expressions of outrage from some quarters, at the expenditure of £218,000 on the investigation, cannot be seen to be reasonable, by anyone in possession of a sound mind.
                Surely it is time to draw a line under this unfortunate episode, and the £218,000 which it has cost the tax payer, so far.
                I understand that Cllr. Kenyon is a charming person of the highest integrity, and her valuable work, in furthering her interests, in all areas of local government is well documented.
                Her untiring efforts to being her wealth of experience to bear on local matters via such bodies as the Whitby Traffic Partnership and the Whitby and District Tourist Association are a cause for congratulation and thanks.
                It is now time to move forward and turn our attention to other matters.
                I well remember the words of Cllr.Kenyon, published in the Whitby Gazette of the 12th June, 2009, in relation to the epxenditure of between £3 -£4000 on a Parish Poll,
                “This money could hve been better spent on play equipment for children, or services for the elderly, to improve their quality of life”.
                This sentiment could equally apply to the sum of £218,000 which has been spent on the investigation into Mr.Maxwell.
                Cllr. Kenyon’s other comment, made at the same time, is equally pertinent,
                “Is this value for money, what price democracy?”.

I then asked Martin John, the Chief executive of the OPG to take the appropriate action – report York Council to the police. He refused and subsequently ceased answering my enquiries, a serious breach of his duty.

      Committing serious criminal offences against a little, old lady on a wheelchair is NOT a nice thing to do.

      What makes it worse is that both you and Maxwell are culpable.

      You have a statutory duty of care to all vulnerable people that you have chosen to not to carry out. Instead, you have given the criminals involved in this case every possible support.

      You are involved in a conspiracy to defraud. You can get up to TEN YEARS in JAIL for that.

      If you dispute my assertion, then take me to court.

      I suspect you will not do so, as this would result in the case getting in the national press.

    Dear Superintendent Winward,
    Thank you for your e mail of the 20th of July which is attached. I have met with you and gone through the evidence and given you the opportunity of considering the evidence and time to respond to it, so I think it would now be appropriate to summarise the situation as it now stands.
    In our meeting (see my detailed notes below), I alleged that Mrs Barbara Hofschroer and her carer Peter Hofschroer (son) had been criminally defrauded of property in the UK and Austria by her other son Robert Hofschroer and his children Diane Hofschroer and Martin Hofschroer, and had also been the subject of a sustained campaign of harassment in which your subordinate Inspector Colin Moreton had participated and assisted. Indeed it is possible that he is the prime organiser of these offences. In particular Inspector Moreton issued a harassment warning threatening to arrest Peter Hofschroer for issuing leaflets and e mails that were offensive, and I alleged he did this to ensure that Peter would not return to the UK from his stay abroad, leaving their house vacant and therefore available to be seized and sold by Robert Hofschroer. Inspector Moreton then made enquiries on behalf of Robert Hofschroer to establish that Peter and Barbara Hofschroer were still abroad and their house was empty. Once this had been confirmed to them by your officers Robert, Diane and Martin Hofschroer, entered their house, changed the locks, withheld a key from Mrs Hofschroer and her carer Peter thus making them homeless and then declared their intention to sell their house, thus making a profit of £200,000 and leaving Mrs Hofschroer abandoned and stranded abroad.
    When Peter Hofschroer commenced a civil case abroad to reclaim his home from Diane and Martin Hofschroer, officers from your station gave them a copy of the harassment warning and they entered it in evidence as proof of Peter Hofschroer’s bad character; as a consequence he will probably lose the case abroad and his home to them. Officers from your station then sent your Director of Force Intelligence Detective Superintendent Galloway a request to the local police to arrest Peter Hofschroer for kidnapping and abusing his mother at the request of Robert Hofschroer. When these allegations were investigated by the local police they were found to be without substance. It is alleged that this arrest request was made to pervert the course of the proceedings abroad by discrediting Peter Hofschroer as a witness. It is further alleged that Peter was put on the GCHQ watch list by Detective Superintendent Galloway to provide access to his e mail and telephone conversations to Robert Hofschroer, in the same way that corrupt police officers have passed on information to journalists in the recent telephone hacking scandal.
    Despite the fact that all of this is clearly police corruption, harassment and fraud within the meaning of force and Home Office policy and the Fraud Act 2006, the North Yorkshire Police continue to maintain that this is all a civil matter and that therefore they do not have to investigate it and (conveniently) do not have to arrest Inspector Moreton, although no one now denies that he is a corrupt police officer.
    As a result of my visit to their home on the 4th of July 2011, photographic evidence taken before and after the alleged burglary has been sent to the investigating officer by e mail and this has resulted in the burglary investigation being re-opened with Robert Hofschroer as the chef suspect. It is alleged that he faked a burglary to conceal that he had removed (i.e. stolen) property belonging to Peter and Barbara Hofschroer. Clearly, if he is found to be the burglar then the entire case has to be re-opened and the position adopted by your force is shown to be untenable. Consequently you will no doubt understand I was not in the least bit surprised that although force policy is that Mrs Hofschroer or her representative can contract the police by email or telephone, Deputy Chief Constable Cross ordered that I should not be allowed to correspond by e mail with the investigating officer, to deliberately inhibit the burglary investigation. When I telephoned you about the burglary investigation I was told by one of your colleagues not to telephone and only to e mail Force Headquarters, again in contravention of force policy and again deliberately inhibiting the investigation of the burglary. You have now written agreeing that I can have contact with the investigating officer in the burglary, but referring me to force headquarters in respect of all other matters. Well I am sorry, that is just not good enough.
    All of these things occurred while you were the officer commanding Fulford Road Police Station. I believe that you are the officer that approved the Interpol request to arrest Peter Hofschroer. However, you were unable to provide any evidence to support either the harassment warning or the Interpol arrest request and refused to either sign the request or get the originator PC Homburg to sign it. Further, the attached letters from Solicitor David Niven show, that you have actively assisted in concealing misconduct by your subordinates by ignoring correspondence, as have other police officers. Put simply, yourself and other officers in North Yorkshire Constabulary are preventing any investigation of Inspector Moreton, by simply refusing to respond to correspondence on the case and doing everything they can to inhibit the investigation of the burglary, so your force does not have to reverse its position that this is a civil matter, when in fact it is a very serious international criminal fraud that has been organised by a police officer under your command, whom you are trying to protect.

    My, the fraud investigator has been busy today!

    Here’s the latest e-mail to Dear Lisa:

    Dear Superintendent Winward,

    Following my meeting with you at Fulford Road Police Station, I remain concerned that you were not able to provide any evidence to support the harassment warning and the Interpol arrest request, would not sign the harassment warning, would not obtain PC Homburg and get him to sign the harassment warning and would not confirm that PC Homburg knew anything about the letter issued in his name to Peter Hofschroer. Clearly, this is completely unsatisfactory. I suspect that Inspector Moreton may have issued the letter in Homburg’s name without his consent.

    I have recommended to Magister Pfeifer that to resolve these issues PC Homburg, yourself and Detective Superintendent Galloway are subpoenaed to appear in Court abroad. To facilitate this, please can you confirm:

    1. That PC Homburg is aware of the letter issued in his name by Inspector Moreton and stands by his evidence.

    2. PC Homburg’s full name and that a notice can be served on him in person at Fulford Road Police Station.

    3. Detective Superintendent Galloway’s full name and that a notice can be served on him in person at Fulford Road Police Station, or alternatively an address where he can have a notice served on him.

    Please can you also confirm:

    4. The name of the officer that initiated the Interpol request thought to be Detective Inspector Ellis of your CID team.

    5. The name of the officer that approved the Interpol Request prior to its transmission to Detective Superintendent galloway, thought to be yourself.

    6. Your Full name and that a notice can be served on you in person at Fulford Road Police Station.

    I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

    Dear Mr Smith,

    I read with interest you comments on the Maxwell case.

    If you want to see how he and his colleagues treat vulnerable old people, please read the attachments.

    I should tell you that TDCC Sue Cross is likely to be facing criminal charges for her role in the affair, so that will be the third chief officer in North Yorkshire Police to be facing serious allegations in short succession.

    I do hope you would support my call for a Home Office enquiry into the rampant corruption in North Yorkshire Constabulary.

    Thanks to their criminal activity, my mother and I have been stranded abroad for over a year now and are desperate to return to our home in Yorkshire.

    Yours sincerely,
    Peter Hofschröer

        Mum’s MP Hugh “Flipper” Bayley has refused to respond to correspondence, as has York Outer’s MP Julian Sturdy, despite the fact we have sufficient evidence to put York Council’s Chief Executive Kersten England “in the frame” for conspiracy to defraud (an old lady!)….

        Mum’s ward coucillors are David Horton JP, currently Lord Mayor of York, and Tracey Simpson-Laing, who has the portfolio of Adult Social Services (!!), have committed acts of abuse against and criminal offences my mother. Her solicitor has written to them advising them to cease and desist.

        I am disappointed to note that one week has elapsed since my email to you of 22nd July 2011 (copied below for your convenient reference) with neither an acknowledgement nor a response.

        It has been a hectic week indeed for parliamentarians in the aftermath of what I may refer to as .the Murdoch revelations’. Police officers in some of the highest positions in the land have felt it appropriate to tender their resignations in an effort to preserve the integrity of their forces.

        Having alerted you to the extraordinary allegations being made against Chief Constable Grahame Maxwell of the North Yorkshire Police, I had hoped that, as one already acquainted with at least one of the complaints (that of Peter Hofschröer), you would be prepared to go on record with your position regarding Mr Maxwell’s continued presence at the NYP.

        Am I to take your reluctance to comment as a de facto statement of support for Mr Maxwell’s decision to remain in office?

        Or do you now feel, as many feel, that Mr Maxwell’s admissions of culpability are not compatible with his position and his immediate resignation presents itself as the only proper course?

        Members of the public – your own constituents amongst them – are awaiting your comment, which I trust will presently be forthcoming. I shall look forward to that. Thank you.

        Kind regards,


        This immediately elicited an Auto-response:

          My views on this matter are on the public record. Perhaps you did not see the interview on ITV last week but other comments I have made should be available on the internet.

          I am surprised that you state that I have not made my views know as I have done so consistently over the past months.


          Julian Smith
          Aside from the most recent allegations, clearly Julian is happy to condone the way Mr Maxwell wasted £218,000 of the public purse before finally admitting his guilt. In my view, that alone would constitute ample grounds for his dismissal.

          It is a curious phenomenon – this matter of public servants closing ranks to repel the scrutiny of the public they are paid to serve.

            Having spent the last hour performing an assiduous search of the internet for news stories published during the week since my first email to you (22nd July 2011), I can report that I find no instance of you going on the public record on the subject of the fresh allegations to which I have taken the trouble to alert you.

            I have seen your comments on hi-speed broadband and on the benefits that the London 2012 Olympics may bring to your constituency through the ‘Made in Britain’ scheme, for which I commend you.

            What I have not seen – even on your own web-site ( ) is your rationale as to why it is acceptable, in these straightened times, and when our Prime Minister has pontificated so expansively on the necessity for ‘accountability’ in public life, for Chief Constable Grahame Maxwell to have effectively squandered £218,000 of the public purse defending the indefensible.

              Thank you for your prompt and most helpful email.

              I have adopted your suggestion to look at the Yorkshire Post web-site. I entered your name – ‘Julian Smith MP’ into the on-site search facility and was rewarded with a list comprising 82 articles in which you are named.

              I note that not one of the 82 returns is dated within the period that has elapsed since I alerted you to the numerous grave allegations that have been made on the blogosphere recently.

              I can only conclude that you have not placed your views on those allegations on the public record, as your earlier statement “My views on this matter are on the public record” would seem to suggest.

              [Parenthetically, I did encounter the following article - of interest, though not within the specified time period:


              In particular:

              "Selby and Ainsty MP Nigel Adams yesterday urged the Chief Constable to step down, joining Skipton and Ripon MP Julian Smith and York Central MP Hugh Bayley in questioning whether he can carry on.

              “I don’t believe you can admit an offence such as gross misconduct and still stay in your job,” Mr Adams said.

              “I’m afraid I think Mr Maxwell should go.” etc.

              which rather suggests that you were of the view (at least at that time - Friday 13th May 2011) that Mr Maxwell should resign.]

              Being mindful of the concept of ‘the benefit of the doubt’, I then entered the words ‘Julian Smith Grahame Maxwell’ into the on-site search facility and was rewarded with a list comprising just 6 articles – none of which made reference to the recent allegations.

              So, for the avoidance of doubt, Julian, please confirm for me that, in your opinion, Grahame Maxwell’s tenure within the NYP – in any capacity – is no longer tenable. Thank you.

              And please respond to my enquiry as to whether or not Mr Maxwell could be characterised as a personal friend of yours.

              Thank you for your unstinting assistance in this very important matter of extraordinary public interest.

    And this one has just gone to our friend Chief Constable Maxwell,

    Dear Chief Constable Maxwell,

    I am very pleased with the way my investigation into the Hofschroer case is proceeding and I am now writing in connection with the request to interview Peter Hofschroer received by myself from Detective Constable Bullock below issued on the orders of Detective Inspector Ellis of York CID concerning other allegations of an offence that no one will give details of.

    As I think you are aware, Peter is the full time carer for his mother Barbara who is disabled and requires 24/7 care. I think you are also aware that while Peter and Barbara were on holiday abroad, Mrs Hofschroer was taken ill and is unable to travel and while she was in this state her son Robert assisted by your subordinate Inspector Moreton entered her home, changed the locks and declared his intention to sell it and this has delayed Peter’s return to the UK. I am sure you will be pleased to read that Peter Hofschroer denies any wrongdoing and remains determined to return to York as soon as possible to meet with police officers and resolve this matter. To facilitate this I visited York, repossessed Peter Hofschroer’s home after its seizure by his brother and obtained keys to it, so that they will eventually be able to return home. Unfortunately the stair lift is not now working in their house and this therefore makes the house uninhabitable for Mrs Hofschroer, who is in any case still unfit to undertake the journey back to York. This will consequently lead to further delay in Peter being able to return to York and assist in this enquiry.

    I am concerned that Detective Inspector Ellis is thought to be the officer that initiated a request to Interpol in which he alleged that Peter Hofschroer had kidnapped his mother and was holding her against her will in Austria incommunicado and abusing her at the request of Robert Hofschroer. Obviously these are very serious allegations which are deeply offensive and hurtful to Peter Hofschroer.

    It is further alleged that as a result of this request Peter Hofschroer was put on the GCHQ watch list to provide access to his e mail and telephone conversations to Robert Hofschroer, in the same way that corrupt police officers have passed on information to journalists in the recent telephone hacking scandal. Again a cause of concern for Peter Hofschroer.

    I am sure you will be interested to read that in the Institute of Chartered Accountants we are taught that before we make allegations of a criminal offence against someone it is very important that we have evidence to support the allegation. Consequently I was incredulous when subsequent enquiries by myself with Superintendent Winward during my visit to Fulford Road Police Station have established that the Interpol arrest request made by Detective Inspector Ellis is in fact completely unsupported by any evidence at all. Further these allegations were investigated thoroughly by the Austrian Police who found that they were in fact false and that Peter Hofschroer was a very good carer of his mother.

    Under these circumstances, given that Detective Inspector Ellis now has a history of making false allegations against Peter Hofschroer I believe it would be unsafe for him to continue as the investigating officer in the alleged (but unspecified) offence that York CID wish to interview Peter Hofschroer about. Accordingly I would be grateful if you would order that DI Ellis is removed from the case, the investigation is passed to another officer and that before we go any further with this enquiry confirmation obtained that there is in fact any viable offence to be investigated by York CID in order to prevent any further time being wasted.

    I would also take this opportunity of again repeating my request that the entire case is re-opened in accordance with the recommendations of IPCC Commissioner Long and the Local Government Ombudsman and investigated by officers from another force, preferably Metropolitan Police Scotland Yard.

    I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

    In the mid-nineteenth century, policing power was largely exercised by local government, and the boroughs of England and Wales fiercely protected the police powers exercised by their elected watch committees. These powers were symbolic of the city’s independence, and police forces were crucial exercisers of executive power locally, concerning poor relief, licensing laws, the regulation of the streets, and the imposition of morality on the community. Yet in the twentieth century, the boroughs proved unable to stop the progress of the 1964 Police Act, which reduced the once all-powerful watch committees to rump authorities with very little control over their police forces.

    Sorry if my earlier postings were voluminous and obtuse. Here is the story in brief:

    The Abuse of Grandma B

    Barbara Hofschröer, a retired teacher of handicapped children, is now 82 years old and wheelchair-bound. For the past three years, she has been the victim of sustained, systematic abuse in which she has been:

    questioned by armed police
    threatened with arrest for harassing a police officer
    harassed by police officers
    defrauded of her house
    pressured into handing over her life savings to her abusers
    denied contact to her great-grandson
    stalked by her older son and his family
    assaulted by her older son
    bawled at over her husband’s dead body by her older son and his family
    burgled by the older son and his family
    unlawfully evicted from her house and stranded abroad by her older son and his family
    threatened with prosecution for non-payment of Council Tax she did not owe

    Her abusers include:

    Her older son Robert Hofschröer, his wife Shirley and their two adult children Diane and Martin
    Officers of North Yorkshire Constabulary, including the Chief Constable Grahame Maxwell
    Officers of the City of York Council, including the Chief Executive Kersten England
    Senior York social workers, including the head of adult protection Mike Hodgkiss
    Cllr David Horton JP, the Lord Mayor of York
    Cllr Tracey Simpson-Laing, whose portfolio includes adult social services
    Members of North Yorkshire Police Authority, including its chairman Jane Kenyon
    Officers of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, including Commissioner Nicholas Long

    Her main abuser Robert Hofschröer is employed by York Social Services and as such, his colleagues are refusing to take action against “one of their own”. His department provides support to North Yorkshire Police and it is alleged they are refusing to arrest him and his family for the serious criminal offences they have committed because of this.

    A professional fraud investigator has accumulated sufficient evidence to have Maxwell and his associates arrested for conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and harassment.

    So far, five independent investigations have questioned how the police and local authority have handled this case. Hundreds of thousands of tax-payers’ money has been wasted to protect a corrupt social worker and his associates.

    In December 2010, the Local Government Ombudsman called for the safeguarding investigation to be reopened. The Police and York Council refused to do so, but instead tried to get Interpol to arrest her carer, so he could not give evidence in court about this corruption.

    Nicholas Long, a Commissioner of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, has also called for the case to be reopened, but North Yorkshire Police has refused to do so.

    This is unprecedented in a case of abuse, so why are the authorities refusing to comply with the law here?

    It is alleged that officers of North Yorkshire Constabulary and the City of York Council are running a racket in which they are systemically targeting isolated old people and plundering their assets. They are desperate to “keep the lid” on this story.

    If you know of any similar cases, please let me know.

    Sir Hugh Orde, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, right, said: “Every police officer patrolling the streets expects any corrupt officer that lets the side down, that does huge damage to policing, to be locked up and the key thrown away.”

    Sir Hugh also compared Mr Murdoch’s performance before MPs last week with the actions of outgoing Scotland Yard chief Sir Paul Stephenson.

    “You saw the chief officer of the police service of this country, Sir Paul Stephenson, saying: ‘Look, this happened on my watch. I am responsible … I am resigning.’

    “Compare that to Rupert Murdoch – complete denial of any responsibility of his organisation.”

      I entirely agree with Orde.

      I assume he will set an example and sort out his own house first by dealing with a well-known corrupt chief constable by the name of Maxwell.

      At the moment, Maxwell is responsibile for the ACPO’s ‘Finance and Resources’ and the ACPO will neither confirm nor deny that Maxwell has relatives employed by the ACPO.

      I assume Orde witll be asking Maxwell to tender his resignation.

      Or is there a whiff of hypocrisy in the air?

    I refer to the conduct of northyorkshire police and their neglect of duty for 7 years -failing to protect instead bullying and breaching human rights along with the pct-york trust-.issuing with a harrassment order appears common practice to obstruct the law.york district is a danger zone if you are a complainant.medical records falsified and treatment I have been assessed as vunerable- I live in sheltered housing aged 49.and am neglected the flat is inhabitable.
    no teeth black stubs pus ousing 24/ teeth to eat on inside the mouth is shocking.rare cushings,asthma,copd,ms-pulmonaryhypertension-hypertension ect-neglected.chief maxwell could have prevented abuse and neglect but failed to do so.many are at risk.

    Ms Kenyon is now very firmly on the public record as saying she has no reason to stand down from her position as Chairman of the NYPA. I can readily think of several reasons why she should do so and I am absolutely sure there are many others who want her out also. It is time her arrogant posturing was brought to an end.

    During the watch of Maxwell and Kenyon they ( and others in the NYP and NYPA) have between them cost the Taxpayers of N. Yorkshire significant amounts of money primarily caused by their corrupt conduct. And it is behaviour which has been ongoing for years. Phil Willis, MP, highlighted after the conclusion of the Superintendent Ackerly misappropriation of funds fiasco that there was a “cavalier attitude by the NYP in accounting for public money”. Maxwell and Kenyon should have taken steps to correct this attitude. But they have not. WHAT IS NOW REQUIRED, AS A MATTER OF URGENCY, IS TO SET UP A DETAILED FORENSIC EXAMINATION, BY AN OUTSIDE INDEPENDENT FIRM OF ACCOUNTANTS, TO INVESTIGATE ALL THE FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS AUTHORISED BY MAXWELL AND KENYON. AND IF ANY FINANCIAL IRREGULARITIES ARE IDENTIFIED WHICH HAVE RESULTED IN THE LOCAL TAXPAYERS PICKING UP THE BILL THEN THESE TWO SHOULD BE COMPELLED TO REIMBURSE THEM.

    I would also like to suggest that a STRONGLY led action group is formed by N. Yorkshire County Councillors, and including the people they represent, who no longer wish to be manipulated by individuals like Maxwell and Kenyon (the rejection of the vote of no confidence in Maxwell is a glaring example of this). As a start, this group should demand that the discussions and secret deals arranged behind closed doors at Maxwell’s mis-conduct hearing should be made public. The Taxpayers have a right to know what Maxwell and Kenyon are up to as it is them who are paying these two.

    I would welcome help from anybody who reads this in respect of the following:-1. Do any of you also know of any reasons why Kenyon should stand down.
    2. Apparently, there is a Monitoring Policy Unit set up supposedly to check out the activities of the NYPA. Does anybody know anything about this Unit?
    3. What is the name of the female Support Worker who was sacked by Maxwell when he was being investigated for gross misconduct? (She is taking the NYP to an Employment Tribunal). A male employee was also sacked by Maxwell. Anybody know his name?

    Finally, I would like to thank Tom Brown, JS Fawcett, DKP, Peter Hofschroer and all the others for their contributions towards exposing Maxwell, Kenyon and other corrupt individuals operating within the NYP and NYPA. If any of them want to contact me directly to tell me more I would be very happy to hear from them.

      The history of NYPA as regards profligate squandering of public money is well known, for instance, the £28,000 shower, which was installed in her office, by Della Canning, the previous Chief Constable; it must have been some shower. Della, of course was also responsible for ordering £500,000 of motor vehicles,Range Rovers and Volvo V70s in 2007, for senior police officers to use as ‘command posts’ whatever they are/were. Unfortunately,the police officers concerned were found not to have the necessary training to allow them to use such high powered vehicles and the vehicles werer actually used to ferry them, to and from work; eventually, when the vehicles had covered 60,000 miles or more, the senior police officers, were allowed to purchase them, presumably at an advantageous price. The NYPA have consequently wasted, over £28,000 on a shower, £500,000 on unnecessary vehicles, and now £300,000 on the investigation of Mr.Maxwell. Harrogate M.P. Phil Willis, said, at the time of the ‘Command Post Vehicle’ scandal, “It is incredible that this scheme could have ever been considered, What on earth were the NYPA doing when this scheme was approved?” The NYPA seem to have lost touch with reality, perhaps it is time for, not only Mr.Maxwell to fall on his sword, but also the members of the NYPA who seem to have had no control over the police force for some years.

    Having read these posts I am shocked but not surprised, only by the degree of self-interest and arrogance that is increasingly becoming the norm in the UK and highlighted by this disgraceful series of events.
    Although I live elsewhere in the UK I have followed with keen interest various issues that have unfolded in many parts of this once great country, including Whitby. I am increasingly convinced that ‘Whitby’ could be substituted with virtually any other named area of the UK and the arrogant self-interest of authority scenario will be to the fore. Unfortunately, those that are supposed to be setting an example rarely do so. Their preferred option is, literally in the case of the police, to close ranks and sweep it under the carpet, and this type of action is by no means confined to the police, Central and Local government fare no better in THEIR equally reprehensible self-focussed actions and ambitions.
    I unashamedly confess to being ‘passionate about community’. The difference between me, and the increasing numbers of other ‘activists’, is that we REALLY care, the majority of ‘authority’ doesn’t,
    despite the vast sums of taxpayer’s money wasted on trying to convince us that they do.

    I have been a Police Volunteer and received positive vetting from my local police force and the UK Security Services. I made it perfectly clear from the outset that my first and foremost consideration was the welfare of the community and NOT merely to be part of the police force’s, or others’, PR propaganda machine/b******t. I was assured that, ‘my contribution was valued and that THEIR desires for the community was the same as my own’. Mmm… if only. The reality was somewhat different to the assurances. I discovered dubious activities relating to a specific serving police officer. This officer admitted at a public meeting, after considerable pressure from me, to his unacceptable practices. Despite expressing my concerns with his superiors twice, up to and including Chief Superintendent, NO action was taken against this self-aggrandising toe rag. In fact, to add insult to injury, this serving police officer was presented with an ‘Officer of the Year’ award! Promises of police support NEVER materialised and our relationship only deteriorated as a consequence of me exposing one of their colleague’s misdemeanours. My position as a Police Volunteer became untenable and I resigned, much to their relief. As a result of my refusal to ‘toe the organisation line’ my community have effectively become persona non grata in the eyes of these so called ‘public servants’ and ‘upholders of the law.
    This said, it has been my privilege to be associated with a minority of serving police officers that DO give a damn. Regrettably, the attitude of the minority is clearly not shared by the majority.
    Theoretically, we expect our governing bodies to act responsibly and set an example to their subordinates. Unfortunately, those that SHOULD be setting an example are frequently themselves corrupt and authorities on a local level, WHOEVER they may be, seem increasingly willing to follow by example, bad as it may be.

    NYPA. The short form version of corruption.

    When two people ripped off a business nine years ago, the police said it was an open and shut case. Then all of a sudden, there was “enough circumstantial evidence to say that the suspects had done nothing wrong”. This was despite them being caught with stolen goods in their homes, solid proof of them cashing company cheques through their personal accounts, and so much more it’s untrue.

    Upholding the law is curious too.

    If they don’t want to deal with a crime, it suddenly becomes a “civil matter”… even if laws have been broken.

    Makes me wonder why.

    • Peter Hofschröer Reply

      July 29, 2011 at 5:48 pm

      Oh, with North Yorkshire Police, it works both ways. Civil matters that affect their friends and associates in crime suddenly become “criminal offences” that require police involvement.

      Two known criminals that are actively involved in systematically defrauding the vulnerable in York – the Lord Mayor Cllr David Horton JP and Cllr Tracey Simpson-Laing (portfolio adult social services) set the police on to Grandma B for distributing a “defamatory” leaflet complaining about their role in defrauding her of her assets.

      When Grandma B reported the criminal offences committed against her by her abusers, these were of course designated “civil matters” in which the police would, of course, not get involved.

      Understandably, when not abusing the vulnerable, York police only have enough time left to deal with civil matters affecting their associates in crime, and then don’t have any time left to deal with crime.

      TThat is why they cost so much to the taxpayer….

    ONE THIRD of crimes are NEVER INVESTIGATED! So can we expect the police to take a one third CUT in SALARY?

    And which third are we talking about? The ones that their cronies commit?

      Well, the police not investigating crime seems more or less the norm in York. In the two years I lived there caring for my 82 year-old, disabled mother, 75% of the crime in her street was committed by police officers, the other 25% by their friends and NONE of it was investigated.

      At a public meeting, I asked PC Graham Cooper, whose colleagues refused to arrest him for having harassed my elderly, wheelchair-bound mother for having had the nerve to exercise her rights of free speech and peaceful protest, if the statistics he was presenting about crime in York included the offences committed by police officers and social workers – the two biggest gangs of criminals operating in the area. He did not answer. I wonder why.

      A few weeks later, police officers and social workers unlawfully evicted her from her own home, before trying to fraudulently sell it. They have still not been arrested…

      I was aware of this screening process years ago within my own community. A direct telephone number to the community policing office was distributed locally by me in good faith, to ‘improve communications with, and service provision from, the local Neighbourhood Policing Team. Officers’ emails were also distributed for the same reason. I was advised by another serving officer that ALL messages were filtered by the Neighbourhood Beat Manager and only those that HE deemed suitable were entered on the Police National Database. I questioned this officer about his actions at public meeting and he eventually, and very reluctantly, admitted to screening all calls and emails. Depending which report you believe, IF you choose to believe either, our community experienced a drop in RECORDED crime of 59% or 72% in a 12 month period. Of course, the outcomes are a win-win situation for the police because as soon as the community realised what was occurring they stopped ringing the direct number and using the email. The only other alternative was to dial the general police 0845 etc number to report any incidents, and the lengthy delays in anyone answering or being put on ‘hold’ resulted in callers hanging up and not making a report. I proposed to policing management that their 0845 number should be free of charge but, naturally, they weren’t interested in ANYTHING that might rock their statistical boat. I asked several senior police officers if screening had been implemented across all of the force area and, whilst none admitted it, nobody ever denied it either.
      You can probably access your local police website and view crime graphs on a street by street basis. If you have access to this facility I would be amazed if the graphs show anything other than a downward trend. Unfortunately, the outcome of my actions against this officer has resulted in the fact that none of my local ‘community policing team will speak to me or even acknowledge my existence. Another consequence of my complaints has been for the same officer to blatantly lie to me and, apparently, his superiors so that my community lost the opportunity of potential funding of tens of thousands of pounds.
      The best option, if you WANT to report an incident, is to use the 0845 etc number (if you have the patience and money) and REQUEST/INSIST ON A LOG NUMBER.
      Changes to community policing, already implemented in some areas, mean that YOUR community will only be patrolled by PCSO(s). Neighbourhood Beat Managers will become ‘Response Managers’ who will be office based and his/her role will be to decide if any real police involvement in your complaint is ‘necessary’.

    Norman Harris – You comment that, “It is being reported on the Real Whitby Facebook page that North Yorkshire Police are trying to put the frighteners on the owner of Real Whitby”.
    This strikes a very familiar chord with with me. Perhaps ‘frighteners’ would not be strictly accurate, yet, but the various weasels in authority have other ways of attempting to control perceived ‘troublemakers’. My own website that ‘takes to task’ my local council, and other authorities, has not been well received by those that it criticises. It has been ‘suggested’ several times that I take down MY website because, “it is causing great embarrassment to the council (and others)”, and, “You (me) cannot expect anyone to take you seriously if the site continues”. Take me seriously? I have spent YEARS trying to get various incompetents to take my community seriously, with no effect. Also, all of my emails to the council are now forwarded to the council’s Head of Legal Services who is also their Monitoring Officer. Of course, nobody in authority has the courage to put their request for website closure in a letter/email, it is always a ‘quiet word in my ear’ at meetings or a brief telephone call. As a result, ALL of my contact with the council and councillors is now ignored as they continue their preferred option of ‘business as usual in la la land/ignore it and it will go away’ mindset.
    The continuation of websites like Real Whitby, and increasing numbers of others, is essential in the fight against ever increasing authoritarian mediocrity and self-interest.

        An interesting post, Sharon. The same names keep coming up and the same accusations are being made against these people for their roles in the cases that are coming to light.

        Bill Hodson was head of York Social Services when the case of Grandma B first started three years ago. He did everything in his power to prevent a proper investigation taking place of the abuse and withheld evidence of the abuse from the safeguarding investigation. This was done to protect the main abuser, Robert Hofschröer, who is employed by York Social Services and appears to be involved in the alleged racket.

        As it is clear that most if not all of the senior management of York Social Services is involved in the systematic abuse of Grandma B, I reported York Social Services to the Care Quality Commission. My complaint was passed down the line to the York office, where Alan Swain, the Compliance Inspector, refused to investigate it.

        Swain is a member of the Green Party in York and has stood in local elections. The Green Party councillors have refused to take up Grandma B’s case and stop York Social Services from systematically abusing her.

        Bill Hodson, former head of York Social Services, is now “advising” the Care Quality Commission, presumably in York. One wonders if he was asked to give “advice” here and what that “advice” was.

        Then Supt. Lewis Raw’s name crops up again. He too has done everything in his power to prevent the serious crimes committed against Grandma B by police officers and social workers from being investigated.

        When I first reported this case of abuse to York police three years ago, it was initally referred to the Vulnerable Person’s Unit, but taken out of their hands by a certain Inspector Colin Moreton, who was neither qualified nor authorised to investigate crimes against the vulnerable.

        Moreton withheld all evidence of the crimes committed by a certain York social worker against Grandma B from the safeguarding investigation.

        That is conspiracy to defraud and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

        Moreton then went on to fabricate a series of false allegations against Grandma B’s carer (see various posts on this site) with the intention of intimidating and / or arresting her carer to silence him.

        Moreton then tipped off Grandma B’s main abuser that she was on holiday, and police officers then watched him and his family force entry into her house, change the locks, so unlawfully evicting her, and remove her property from her house, i.e. theft.

        Obviously the police officers did not arrest their friend. When neighbours complained, they were told to mind their own business.

        At that time, Moreton ran the “Safer Neighbourhood” scheme in that part of York.

        In the folliowing year and a half, Moreton and his colleagues were asked dozens of times to produce the evidence in support of their false allegations, which, of course, they cannot. When he got a letter from Grandma B’s solicitor to this effect, Moreton took “early retirement” to protect his pension.

        North Yorkshire Police are still refsuing to arrest this granny-abusing criminal. The streets of York will not be safe so long as there are police officers like this at large.

        If Supt. Lewis Raw is really interested in upholding the law and protecting vulnerable people, he would have arrested Moreton and the dozen or so police officers actively involved in this crime wave a long time ago.

      Perhaps Maxwell would like to state how much taxpayers money he has allowed to be spent preventing an investigation into the reasons why he has refused to uphold the law and deal with the serious crime his officers, among others, have committed against an 82 year-old, wheelchair-bound, great-grandmother.

      How efficent a use of police resources is it for police officers to commit a series of crimes against a little, old lady on a wheelchair and her carer, going so far as to involve Special Branch, SOCA, New Sctoland Yard, Interpol, the Austrian National CID, the Austrian Federal CID and the Austrian Police in attamepting to have her carer arrested on the basis of allegations falsified by his officers?

      Would it not make better sense for Maxwell to have his officers deal with crime rather than commit it?

      Ah! Silly me! Now I see the problem! That would mean North Yorkshire Police arresting Maxwell…

The dubious PFI practice is costing the UK taxpayers billions, and will continue to do so for years to come, whilst lining the pockets of those involved. £87,000? This amount is PEANUTS when set against the full extent of this rich boys pocket lining exercise across the UK. Here in Exeter, Devon, an original tender of £93M relating to PFI funded new schools escalated to over £400M for buildings that are ‘sadly lacking’ and fail to comply with many safety regulations. All attempts to extract more information from those responsible, including contractors and County Council, are constantly stonewalled.

      Personally, as most people I imagine, I prefer to base MY opinions on personal experiences, this is so much more a true representation of public consensus than ANY amount of taxpayer funded so called ‘initiatives’ and ‘consultations’ whose main objectives are about polishing police balls rather than giving them the more appropriate kicking that they deserve.

    People have been asking whether or not North Yorkshire Police have been pressing you to remove certain postings (or parts of postings) on this and related stories – on the grounds that they are defamatory/libelous.

    I have pointed out that there is a clear distinction between, on the one hand, the NYP as a statutory organisation, and, on the other hand, individual officers of the NYP, identified by name and/or position.

    In my view, it would be inappropriate for individual officers to call upon the legal services of NYP to further any action for defamation/libel in respect of claims they may wish to make as individuals. Any action of that nature should be undertaken at their own expense, and not from the public purse.

    It may be that the North Yorkshire Police Authority, under the Chairmanship of Ms Jane Kenyon, would be the appropriate body to initiate any action on behalf of the NYP itself.

    Of course, the onus would be on them to show that allegations published on Real Whitby have no basis in fact. No statement of truth can, by definition, be libelous.

    The public may conclude that failure on the part of the NYP and/or individual officers to take action for defamation/libel is tantamount to an admission that any allegations published on Real Whitby are, in fact, true. The public may wonder what view the NYPA, and indeed Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabularies, would feel compelled to take, should that prove to be the case.

    No doubt Real Whitby will keep readers apprised of any developments.

      I have already said to every politician, council official and police officer I have named here and elsewhere as being actively involved in the abuse of my mother and as having committed criminal offences against her and I, if a word of what I have stated is not true, then take me to court.

      Then the story would come out into the public domain and be reported in the press.

      A number of the people I have named have made various threats, but never carried them out. Instead, they have exercised their right of silence.

      Furthermore, they have tried to silence my criticism by making false allegations against me including theft, harassment, kidnapping and abuse, and then tried to have me arrested five times now. However, all of the allegations made against me have been investigated and shown to be false.

      Last December, the Local Government Ombudsman called on York Council to reopen the safeguarding investigation into their abuse of Grandma B “immediately”, as the original investigation had been “irregular”, i.e. my brother’s colleagues in York Social Services and his friends in the police withheld all evidence of abuse and crime.

      York Council and the Police have refused to do so. The Council cut off communications with my solicitors and then, along with the police, fabricated the kidnapping allegation and tried to get me arrested via Interpol.

      We are in the realms of serious, organised crime here, committed by corrupt officials determined to defraud a defenceless old lady.

      I do not think that it would be possible for any officers or members of the Council to take action for defamation, unless they did so on their own behalf and at their own expense.
      In 1993, after Derbyshire County Council tried to sue the ‘Sunday Times’ over critical articles about the administration of its pension fund, the House of Lords ruled, ‘ It is if the highest importance that ….. any governmental body should be open to uninhibited criticism. The threat of a civil action for defamation must inevitably have an inhibiting effect on freedom of speech.’
      Individual officers or Councillors may bring their own claims for libel but they cannot use taxpayers’ money to do so.

      The legislation dealing with this is The Local Authorities (indemnities for members and officers) Order 2004 which states, ‘No indemnity may be provided under this order in relation to the making by the member or officer indemnified of any claim in relation to an alleged defamation of that member or officer.’

      Should any governmental body fund any such action, then they would be acting ultra vires and in this the case, the Councillors could be surcharged for any expenditure involved in any claim.

        However, senior police officers, senior council officials, a lord mayor (and jp) and local councillors who are not short of a bob or two, and can get free (unofficial) legal advice from their respective legal departments are instead exercising their right to silence. Collectively. To a man (or woman).

    You must be dreaming if you expect any sense out of Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabularies.

    I have just been reading the full report of their joint inspection (with the Audit Commission) of Cleveland Police (Sept 2010). The first sentence tells it all:

    1. Cleveland Police Authority (the Authority) is performing well overall. It has set clear and ambitious priorities to improve public confidence and policing and this has helped Cleveland Police (the Force) to become one of the top performing forces in the country over the past few years.

    Given this morning’s news in the Darlington paper,

    on top of the Chief Constable’s arrest last week, it is pretty clear that HMIC and the Audit Commission couldn’t inspect a public toilet and come up with the dirt.

    Dear Chief Constable Maxwell,

    I am again writing to you concerning the attached harassment warning, issued
    on behalf of Mr Mark Bednarski which has now been introduced in evidence by
    your force in a civil trial in Austria, to assist Mr Robert Hofschroer’s
    family to retain control of property there that formerly belonged to Mr
    Peter Hofschroer and was gifted to Mr Martin Hofschroer and Ms Diane
    Hofschroer in return for providing care services to Mrs Barbara Hofschroer.
    In the event they failed to provide these care services, having nevertheless
    obtained control of Mr Peter Hofschröer’s home by deception. You will
    remember that they obtained control of Mrs Hofschröer’s home in York by a
    similar deception and recently tried to sell it and make her homeless.

    As you are aware, approximately thirty attempts have been made by Mr Peter
    Hofschroer, Mr David Niven, Magister Pfeiffer and myself by writing to
    yourself, Ms Terry, Ms James Mr Dennis, Inspector Cain, Inspector Moreton,
    Mr Lemon, Mr Read, Superintendent Winward, Deputy Chief Constable Cross, Mr Pudney of the NYPA, Mr Long of the IPCC and MS Reed of the IPCC to identify what it is that Mr Hofschroer has done to warrant the issue of the
    harassment warning, all of which have been ignored. Clearly a bizarre and
    extraordinary situation.

    I very much regret to inform you that the situation has now become even more
    bizarre, as a result of the intervention of your Legal Services Directorate.

    Peter Hofschroer is anxious to understand what it is that he has done to
    warrant the issue of this threat to arrest him. In compliance with the
    attached invitation from Inspector Moreton to discuss the matter, I
    nevertheless attended at Fulford Road Police Station in my capacity as the
    representative of Mr Peter Hofschroer and his Austrian attorney Magister
    Pfeiffer to examine the e mails and literature referred to in the leaflet,
    so that this matter could be resolved.

    Superintendent Winward treated me with scrupulous courtesy and provided me with a copy of an unsigned and unaddressed leaflet which constitutes the
    “literature” complained of in the harassment warning. However, on
    examination, it was found to contain no offensive statements about Mr
    Bednarski which constitute harassment within the meaning of the Protection
    from Harassment Act. Further, Mr Hofschroer denies any knowledge of this
    leaflet, denies distributing it or writing it and the Police cannot say how
    it came into their possession. In short, the leaflet is not evidence of
    harassment of Mr Bednarski and even if it was, there is in any case no
    evidence to connect Mr Peter Hofschroer to the leaflet.

    I then asked to see the e mails that I had been invited to Fulford Road
    Police Station to discuss and Superintendent Winward refused to show them to
    me. I showed Superintendent Winward a copy of the attached e mailed
    invitation from Inspector Moreton and stated that this gave me authority to
    discuss the matter with her and see the e mails. I also stated that coming
    in to the local police station to discuss the situation and take police
    advice was normal police practice in these situations and that Peter
    Hofschroer was being cooperative with Police instructions. Superintendent
    Winward nevertheless refused to discuss or show me the e mails or show me
    the original leaflet mentioned in the harassment warning. Instead she asked
    me to obtain the e mails from Peter Hofschroer. I replied that this was
    impossible because he has not sent any e mails to Mark Bednarski and
    therefore could not have e mails that he had not sent and in any case the
    onus was on the Police to provide evidence of their allegations, not on
    Peter Hofschroer. She then advised me to write to the legal Services
    Department and assured me that once they had given their permission I could
    see them.

    I should add that Ms Terry of your legal Services Directorate has previously
    refused to release the e mails on the grounds that they would be in breach
    of data protection legislation although in fact UK Data Protection
    information does not prohibit the release of e mails to a person that he
    himself wrote. However, as advised by Superintendent Winward I nevertheless made the application and Ms James of your Legal Services Directorate responded denying me access to the e mails on the grounds that because I had written to her in accordance with Police advice asking to see the e mails, so Mr Hofschroer can know what it is he has done that warrants issuing him with a threat to arrest him, I was being “vexatious”.

    This was bizarre enough, but then, Mr Simon Dennis the Head of Legal and
    Compliance for North Yorkshire Police confirmed in his letter to Magister
    Pfeiffer of the 25th of July 2011 (attached), that Mr Bednarski has not in
    fact made any complaint about the leaflet or the e mails at all and the
    complainant is none other than Mr Robert Hofschroer.

    Mr Dennis then went on in his letter to assert that I had not been invited
    to Fulford Road Police Station although in the attached the e mail from
    North Yorkshire Police it states in relation to the “harassment warning”
    allegedly issued by PC Homburg “If you wish to discuss the matter in person
    please do not hesitate to contact me”; which is clearly an invitation to
    meet with North Yorkshire Police at Fulford Road Police Station, discuss the
    harassment warning and receive Police advice, in accordance with normal
    police practice, which Mr Peter Hofschroer has perfectly complied with.

    I have to point out that the unsigned harassment warning issued by Inspector
    Moreton and PC Homburg is now the key document in a 500,000 Euro
    international criminal fraud in which corrupt Police Officers of your force
    are alleged to have assisted and concealed. However, the leaflet is not
    evidence of harassment of Mr Bednarski, you do not have copies of these
    alleged offensive e mails because Peter Hofschroer has never sent any
    offensive e mails to Mr Bednarski, and your force now concedes that Mr
    Bednarski has not made any complaint about the leaflet or e mails. It is
    therefore blatantly obvious that the attached harassment warning is without
    evidential foundation, that there is no complaint by Mr Mark Bednarski and
    therefore no offence by Mr Peter Hofschroer and no justification for the
    harassment warning. I think this should concern you.

    I would be grateful therefore if you would immediately withdraw the
    harassment warning on the grounds that there is no evidence of any offence
    and arrest Inspector Moreton.

    I look forward to hearing from you in due course.


    North Yorkshire Police fabricated this harassment warning and other allegations against me in an attmept to stop me being a witness in court of their corrupt and crimnial activities.

    If Maxwell and his gang want to deny the fact they are all hardened, active, habitual criminals systematically defrauding vulnerable people, then they can take me to court and dispute this.

    I’m not holding my breath.

    Here’s the latest e-mail to NYP. They are evading all requests to provide the evidence in support of the false allegations they have made againstme:

    ——– Original Message ——–
    Subject: FW: Hofschroer Case (Interpol Reference 4C/4326686/10) (BMeiA-GB.4.30.13/0011-IV.1/2011)
    Date: Wed, 10 Aug 2011 21:02:26 +0200
    From: Fraud Investigator
    To: ‘James, Joanne’
    CC: ‘Rebecca Reed’ , ‘Winward, Lisa’ , ‘Ellis, David’ , ‘Bullock, Sarah’ , ‘Quinn, Cheryl’ , ‘ ‘David Niven’ , ‘Donald Crawford’ , ‘Huw Daniel’ , , ‘Terry, Elizabeth’ , ‘IPT’ , ‘John Hughes-Wilson’

    Dear Ms James,

    I am writing in connection with the proposed telephone conference to discuss
    your response to my freedom of information request concerning the attached
    harassment warning and Interpol arrest request.


    The harassment warning essentially makes three allegations:

    1. That North Yorkshire Police have received a complaint from Mr Bednarski.
    However, subsequently Mr Dennis has confirmed that this is a falsehood and
    the complainant is in fact the Father of the defendants in the Austrian
    Civil Case. In short therefore, there is no allegation that any crime has
    been committed against Mr Bednarski.

    2. That Mr Peter Hofschroer has distributed offensive “literature” about Mr
    Bednarski. However, after eighteen months of asking to see the “literature”
    eventually when the IPCC and Police produced it, it transpired not to make
    any offensive statements about Mr Bednarski within the meaning of the act,
    there is no evidence that Mr Hofschroer produced or distributed it and so
    consequently it is worthless as evidence of an offence.

    3. That Mr Peter Hofschroer had sent offensive e mails to Mr Bednarski,
    which Mr Hofschroer denies. Although about thirty requests (example
    attached) have been made to see these e mails, North Yorkshire Police have
    refused to provide them. In the attached e mail from Inspector Moreton Mr
    Hofschroer was invited to attend at Fulford Road Police Station to discuss
    the alleged offences. Unfortunately he is looking after his Mother in
    Austria and so I attended in his place as his representative to try and get
    to the bottom of this matter. Superintendent Winward represented Inspector
    Moreton who has recently retired from the force. During my meeting
    Superintendent Winward refused to show me the original of the leaflet and e
    mails because she alleged that I had made the request to the wrong person
    and that I should have made it to the your department.

    As you can see from the attached document I had in fact made the request to
    the correct department in accordance with force policy. Initially your
    colleague Ms Terry stated that Mr Hofschroer could not see the leaflet and e
    mails because by releasing to Mr Hofschroer the e mails and leaflet the
    Police allege he wrote, they would be breaching his data protection rights.
    Clearly this is ridiculous because you have already released the leaflet and
    there is no prohibition in the Data Protection Act preventing you from
    releasing to Mr Hofschroer e mails you allege he himself sent. I
    nevertheless re-applied for sight of the e mails and you have now written
    back to me alleging that by complying with a Police invitation to attend at
    Fulford Road Police Station in accordance with normal Police procedures to
    take police advice, discuss the matter and try to understand what the e
    mails you allege have caused this situation say, so Peter can understand
    what it is that he has done and this matter can be resolved sensibly, you
    have accused Peter and I of being “vexatious”.

    Obviously this is ridiculous and I can only conclude that the reason that Ms
    Terry, yourself and other members of North Yorkshire Police will not release
    the e mails is because you know they do not exist and are trying to conceal
    this in order to protect Inspector Moreton from arrest, which is clearly a
    corrupt act.

    Therefore in accordance with your letter we would wish to discuss your
    determination. I would suggest the following agenda.

    1. Confirmation from yourself that North Yorkshire Police do have the e
    mails, or admission that they do not and confirmation that the harassment
    warning is withdrawn.

    2. Statement by Mr Peter Hofschroer that he has not sent offensive e mails
    and then clarification from North Yorkshire Police of why North Yorkshire
    Police consider these e mails are offensive i.e. what it is that is said, if
    they will not provide them.

    3. Confirmation from North Yorkshire Police of who the harassment warning
    was distributed to, presumably Mr Bednarski and Mr Peter Hofschroer.

    4. Explanation from North Yorkshire Police of Ms Terry’s determination and
    why Peter Hofschroer cannot see e mails that you allege he wrote.

    5. Explanation from North Yorkshire Police of why Peter Hofschroer is
    deemed to be vexatious for obeying Police instructions and asking to see the
    e mails so he can understand what it is that he has written that has caused
    this letter to be written. This is after all one of the purposes of a
    harassment warning.

    6. Confirmation from North Yorkshire Police of why North Yorkshire Police
    have threatened Mr Peter Hofschroer with arrest for harassing Mr Bednarski
    when Mr Bednarski has not made any complaint.

    7. Explanation from Mr Dennis of why North Yorkshire Police still uphold
    the harassment warning, when in fact the leaflet is not offensive within the
    meaning of the act, there is no complaint by Mr Bednarski, no e mails and no
    evidence of any offence at all.


    This caused Mr Hofschroer and his mother enormous concern, particularly as
    his mother was separated from him and questioned by armed police. He denies
    sending any offensive e mails to the City of York Council or making any
    offensive telephone calls to anyone. Nor has he kidnapped his mother, held
    her against her will or prevented her from having contact with her
    relatives, as was confirmed by the Austrian State Police. Clearly in trying
    to resolve this Mr Hofschroer is not being “vexatious”. We would therefore
    suggest the following agenda:

    8. Statement by Mr Peter Hofschroer that he has not sent offensive e mails
    to York Council or made offensive telephone calls to North Yorkshire Police
    and City of York Council.

    9. Confirmation from yourself that North Yorkshire Police do have the e
    mails and details of the telephone calls.

    10. Confirmation of why the Police believe that Peter Hofschroer has sent
    threatening e mails and made telephone calls to City of York Council given
    that ACC Cross has denied this, details of the alleged calls so Peter can
    assist Police by checking his whereabouts in his diary, provide an alibi,
    prove that he did not make them and eliminate himself from your enquiries.

    11. Confirmation of why the Police allege that Peter Hofschroer has made
    threatening telephone calls to Police and details of the calls so Peter can
    assist Police by checking his whereabouts in his diary, provide an alibi,
    prove that he did not make them and eliminate himself from your enquiries.

    12. I understand that most telephone calls to Police Stations are recorded
    and if this is so, it would be helpful if we could listen to the calls.

    13. We understand and accept your refusal to let us see the statement.
    However, please can you confirm that you do have a statement from Robert
    Hofschroer to support the allegations he made.

    14. Explanation from North Yorkshire Police of why Peter Hofschroer is
    deemed to be “vexatious” when he has completely cooperated with the Police
    investigation into these allegations in Austria and only wants to assist the
    Police by providing then with evidence that will assist their enquiries by
    eliminating him from the investigation.

    15. Any other issues that arise during the discussion.

    Again I am concerned that the reason that you will not release information
    on the e mails North Yorkshire Police allege Peter wrote and the telephone
    calls North Yorkshire Police allege he made is because you know they do not
    exist and were not made and you are trying to conceal this in order to
    protect police officers who have been guilty of misconduct. However, I
    think you should have the opportunity of refuting this concern.

    We consider it would be very helpful if Mr Dennis, DI Ellis and
    Superintendent Winward were present.

    I hope this is constructive and helpful, I would emphasise that his is only
    a suggestion and we will consider any observations on this suggested format.
    I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

    She has published a link to a redacted version of the IPCC report that shows maxwell for what he is:

      I have just been reading that IPCC report. The line I particularly liked reads:

      137. About 9.40am on the 9 March 2010, he was asked to see the CC in
      the CCs office. The CC appeared unsettled and said I feel like an

      Shrewd police work, that. So Mr Maxwell feels like an arsehole. And the rest of us know where to find one.

      • Peter Hofschröer Reply

        August 12, 2011 at 12:34 pm

        Just glanced through the IPCC Report myself. My favourite bit (so far) is,

        “She [ACC Sue Cross] then went back to her office and before returning to Ryton the CC [Maxwell] came in and asked if she was cross or angry. She told him she was because of what he had done. She felt he had used poor judgement and was angry and disappointed. It was out of character for the CC who was always reinforcing the need to be professional, transparent and demonstrate strong ethical standards. She had never known the CC behave like this before.”

        I fell off my chair reading the two last sentences.

        Did she really say that or has the IPCC Report been scripted?

    Cllr Tracey Simpson-Laing claimed she had reported the matter the the police, but the police denied this. What does one expect from the York councillor with the portfolio of adult abuse? Integrity?

    Now the police are being asked for the crime no.

      Poor Norman’s case is horrifying. I only hope he gets out before too much harm is done. Mum has invited him to come over here to Austria, where he will be as safe as possible.

      I’m glad I brought Mum here when I did, because with hindsight it seems York Social Services were going to get her out of my care, kill her of and divide up her assets with the police and my brother, who is employed by York SS.

      The Austrian authorities were horrified when corrupt Yorkshire police officers tried to have me arrested here for “kidnapping” my mother. Had the Austrian police not been professionals of integrity, then a criminal like Maxwell may well have got it way.

      The Austrian Foreign Ministry now knows what the corrupt British authorities are up to, and we will be looking at the issue of getting asylum here for victims of British police crime.

    This site is rapidly losing cred.. Yes there certainly appears to have been some dubious actions but the theme appears to be that everyone in the police and public sector, or at least, a great number of them are corrupt.

    This is not credible, given the audits and controls that exist. It would require a conspiracy and cover up that defies belief.

    We appear to have a variety of contributors. Some who have found themselves on the wrong side of the law, the usual bunch of conspiracy theorists and some self appointed public guardians..

      May I suggest you read the documentary evidence presented on this site?

      Can you please state which contributors are “on the wrong side of the law” and present the evidence? The evidence presented so far shows they are the victims of crime and that the perpetrators are police officers, none of whom deny the allegations.

      Can you also state what audits and controls there are in place? As a victim of police crime I’ve seen none. None that are designed to work, anyway.

      And who are the self-appointed public guardians?

      Any please let us know if you have a problem with senior police officers systematically abusing an 82 year old grandmother and breaking the law to defraud her of her assets.

      If you do – and that would surprise me – then please refute the evidence presented on this site, word by word, line by line.

      “Lets have some balance, please.”
      Of course there are decent policemen, who Im sure outweigh the bad ones on a balance scale if they all carried the same weight, but they dont.
      Using the imperial scale of ounces, pounds, stones, hundredweights and tons, a constable would weigh in at, say, an ounce, and have little influence on policing policy, but a chief constable would weigh in at, say, a ton and would DICTATE policy, and so tip the scale disproportionately.
      Because of his greater weight, the chief constable will make a bigger impact on the reputation of the police force if found to be behaving improperly, as seems to be the case here, than a lowly constable would,

      I dont profess to understand this, nor the Grandma B, issue completely, but the people concerned have openly named names, while the people who have been named refuse to publicly explain themselves. Until they do so then I am inclined to believe those that you choose to discredit.

      It takes only one bad apple can turn the whole barrel rotten, which is why I hope someone will get to the bottom of this case before the rot sets in beyond redemption.

        Excuse me, have I understood you correctly? You chose to believe people accused of serious crime, who have chosen to exercise their right to silence?

        If they are refusing to refute the accusations or say anything at all, what is it about they are not saying you believe?

        The fraud investigator working on this case (just one case!) has accumulated enough evidence to have a couple of dozen officers of North Yorkshire Constabulary from chief officers, through to superintendents, inspectors and constables who have systematically abused a vulnerable old lady for THREE YEARS arrested, charged and jailed. Not a rotten apple, not a bit rotten apple, but a festering barrel of criminals in blue.

        All we need is one stright cop to arrest them all.

        Will he please stand up and tell us him name?

        A peer of the realm will be tabling a question in the House shortly. It appears that an archbishop will be supporting him. That is what happens in countries as corrupt as Syria, Egypt and Britain. The church challenges the corrupt state, while the corrupt state tries to block the social networks through which dissidents try to communicate with each other.

    If a policeman abuses or maltreats a member of the public and if a complaint is made to the chief constable nothing is done about it.
    If the chief constable is suspected of corruption and a complaint is made to his superiors nothing is done about it.
    If those superiors are reported to an MP nothing is done about it.
    If the complete mess is reported to Theresa May or Ken Clarke nothing is done about it.
    If those two are reported to David Cameron or any Prime Minister nothing is done about it.

    Please note the Grandma B story can be found on her own blog:

    I assume that York Council will now be threatening action against an 82 year-old great grandmother for complaining about the way they have defrauded her of her house, attempted to steal her savings, unlawfully evicted her and tried to terrorise her into submission.

    This thread of correspondence below between the fraud investigator working on the Hofschröer case and member of North Yorkshire Constabulary is yet another clear indication of the rampant corruption in this force.

    In the past three years, Grandma B, now 82 years old, has been the victim of serious crime, including the following offences:

    Threatening with Menaces
    Criminal Damage

    The police refused to investigate the fraud because this crime is apparently a “civil” matter

    They ignored the reports of threatening with menaces and harassment. As Grandma B is a vulnerable person, the police are obliged to investigate all reports of harssment, but they did not.

    The police witnessed Robert and Martin Hofschröer force entry to Grandma B’s house and remove her property, but did not arrest them.

    The evidence of the role of Robert Hofschröer’s role in the faked burglary is in the correspondence below. Any reasonable person would consider it most likely he was the perpetrator. The police have again refused to investigate.

    The criminal damage took place while Robert Hofschröer and his family took control of Grandma B’s house unlawfully, but the police will not even consider investigating that crime.

    Date: Sat, 9 Jul 2011 22:27:57 +0200
    From: Fraud Investigator
    To: ‘Winward, Lisa’

    Dear Superintendent Winward,

    Further to our meeting at Fulford Road Police Station on Tuesday the 5th of July 2011, you may remember that stated that I had visited the Hofschroer home the previous day and secured it on behalf of Mr Peter Hofschroer, after an alleged burglary and that I would be writing to you separately in connection with my investigation into the burglary.

    I was accompanied on my visit by Mr Phil Walker of Walker and Dodds, who is a certificated Bailiff. I had the opportunity of inspecting the premises with Mr Walker and subsequently conducted a review of all the documents I have relating to this case. As a result of my enquiries I am now satisfied that the burglar was Mr Robert Hofschroer and that there is enough evidence to arrest him.

    Briefly the background to this case is as that Barbara (mother) and Paul Hofschroer (father) transferred their home 50% to Robert Hofschroer (son) outright, 25% each to Diane (granddaughter) and Martin Hofschroer (grandson) to be held in trust for Peter Hofschroer (son with no children) In return for the transfers they agreed they would provide care services to Paul, Barbara and Peter Hofschroer should they become ill, with Paul and Barbara occupying their home under a licence for the rest of their lives. However, soon as Paul and Barbara Hofschroer’s health deteriorated, Robert, Diane and Martin Hofschroer abandoned them. Peter Hofschroer then left his home and career in Austria, became their full time carer and obtained Power of Attorney over Paul and Barbara. Paul died on the 3rd of January 2009.

    Barbara Hofschroer was taken ill whilst on holiday in Austria in December 2009, necessitating a long and ongoing extension of her stay. On the 22nd of February 2010 Robert and Martin Hofschroer took possession of Barbara’s home, against the will of Peter and Barbara in contravention of the licence, changed the locks and withheld a key from them, thus making Peter and Barbara Hofschroer homeless. Neighbours called the police and alleged that there was banging coming from the house and that Robert, Diane and Martin Hofschroer people were removing property from it.

    Robert, Diane and Martin Hofschroer subsequently stated their intention to sell Barbara’s home (8 November 2010) on the basis that a clause in the licence allowed the sale of the property if Barbara and Paul ceased to permanently reside there for one year. Peter and Barbara’s solicitor Mr David Niven wrote to Robert, Diane and Martin Hofschroer pointing out that Peter had a 50% interest in the house, that Barbara had not ceased to permanently reside in her home and they were forced to acknowledge that they could not sell the house in December 2009 or early January 2010.

    I attach copies of the Scene of the Crime Officer’s (SOCO) report, an quote from the Police occurrence log for the 22nd of February, an extract from the letter dated 31st of January 2011 from Robert in which he notified Peter Hofschroer that there had been a burglary and a photograph of the two computers on Peter Hofschroer’s desk showing that a cigarette had been smoked in the room. The SOCO report is very good and shows commendable attention to detail. However there are a number of additional important points that I detected during my visit that are not mentioned in the report which I would like to bring to your attention as follows:

    a) The digital safe, which was visible, not secured to anything and easily removable, has not been removed or attacked in any way.

    b) Two watches which were on open view have been left untaken, although the house was apparently searched for easily removable items.

    c) The bolt at the bottom of the kitchen door which would have prevented the kitchen door being opened by unfastening the yale lock had been removed.

    d) Robert Hofschroer stated Peter’s two computers had been stolen. However, the SOCO report states they were left behind. When I inspected the property, both computers were unplugged, disconnected, removed from their normal place on the floor and had been placed on Peter’s desk, although the SOCO report omits this detail. This may indicate that they were taken from the house and then returned after the burglary.

    e) A cigarette had been smoked and stubbed out in the ashtray on Peter’s desk, next to the computers.

    f) Some of the carpets have been removed.

    g) The stair lift to the first floor does not work now.

    h) Parts of the house have been redecorated.

    i) There is no sign of any work that would require tools or banging other than the removal of the flat screen TV.

    The key points therefore in this burglary are that:

    1. Robert Hofschroer was the only key holder at the time of the burglary, was the only person to visit Barbara’s home, was responsible for securing the property and according to his letter last visited it on the 26th of January 2011.

    2. Robert Hofschroer smokes. Peter and Barbara Hofschroer do not smoke.

    3. According to Robert Hofschroer the burglary occurred on the 26th or 27th of January 2011. He asserts that he knows this because he just happened to be driving past and noticed that the curtains were drawn.

    4. Access was gained through the front garage door which had not been forced and had either been left open for the burglar or opened by the burglar using a key.

    5. The burglar entered the garage and gained entry into the house via the door that goes from the garage into the kitchen.

    6. The kitchen bolt at the bottom of the kitchen door had been removed previously, thus making it easier to force the kitchen door. Peter Hofschroer denies removing this bolt and is adamant that it was in place when he left his mother’s home, which Barbara Hofschroer confirms. It is therefore clear that the bolt was removed by Robert Hofschroer, he being the only person that had access to the house after Peter and Barbara left.

    7. An attempt was made to force the door from the garage using a screwdriver and chisel, which failed.

    8. The Burglar smoked a cigarette in the garage and stubbed it out on the floor.

    9. The burglar then broke the glass in the door. Some glass was found on the garage floor close to the door and some was found in the kitchen 1.5 meters away from the door. No glass was found in the kitchen close to the door. This indicates that the glass was broken from inside not outside and some of the glass brought into the kitchen from the garage. Some of the glass is missing and was apparently removed by the burglar.

    10. The burglar conducted a search of the house that according to the SOCO was “tidy”, ignored the safe and two watches that were in open view in the house, could be easily removed and sold, preferring instead the flat screen TV and two computer monitors (please see Peter’s remarks in the attached e mail. He then used the toilet, flushed it, drew the curtains behind him to signal that there had been a burglary, picked up the remaining glass and took it away with him in his pocket and put the apron in the bin on the way out. Clearly a most unusual and commendable example of a tidy, considerate and socially responsible burglar at work within his community.

    Peter assures me that there has not been a burglary in the street in living memory. Because of the amount and weight of stolen property I presume a car was used to take this property away, however neighbours report no suspicious cars in the area. Whilst burglary investigation is a new field of endeavour for me in my career as a Chartered Accountant, I have to say nevertheless that I find the above explanation lacks credibility. In particular, given that the Garage door the burglar used was left open by Robert Hofschroer or accessed by a key which was only held by Robert Hofschroer, that the bolt on the kitchen door was deliberately removed thus making it more vulnerable to being forced by Robert Hofschroer, the glass was broken from the inside, that Robert Hofschroer was the only person with a key to access the inside and the only car seen there belonged to Robert Hofschroer, I consider that it is blatantly obvious that the burglary was an inside job. I would suggest the following sequence of events is more likely:

    When Robert and Martin Hofschroer entered the property with tools on the 22nd of February 2010, the hammering heard by the neighbours was the flat screen TV being removed from the wall. The property seen being taken from the house by neighbours (i.e. stolen) was the missing flat screen TV, the monitors and other property. It is clear from correspondence with Peter Hofschroer and Mr David Niven, that Robert, Diane and Martin Hofschroer intended to sell the house and that Robert Hofschroer removed (i.e. stole) items of mail belonging to Peter to support the case that Peter and Barbara Hofschroer had permanently left their home. It is alleged they also removed the carpets and other property being the possessions of Barbara and Peter Hofschroer in black plastic bags (hence their presence in the garage) to clear the house for sale. They also started re-decorating the house to prepare it for sale.

    When it became clear from correspondence with Mr Niven that they would not be able to sell Barbara’s in January 2011 and it would be re-occupied by Peter and Barbara in due course, Robert Hofschroer had to explain the missing TV and monitors, or face being arrested for theft. So rather than return them he would fake the burglary to explain their disappearance. In preparation he removed the bolt on the bottom of the kitchen door and left the garage door open. He then entered the garage tried to force the kitchen door and failed, then smoked a cigarette while he thought about things. He then entered using his key, smashed the glass in the kitchen door from the kitchen side and moved some of the glass from the garage into the kitchen to make it appear that it had been broken from the garage, opened some drawers and handbags to make it appear that there had been a burglary, but missed the watches and the safe that a real burglar would have gone for. He then drew the curtains to give him an excuse to report the burglary, slashed or cut the apron with a knife from the kitchen and put the apron in the bin on the way out.

    In his letter to his brother Peter Hofschroer, Robert Hofschroer alleges that Peter’s computers had been stolen although according to the SOCO report they were not. He also alleges that the house was “ransacked” although according to the SOCO report there had only been a “tidy” search. It is alleged this was done to cause further distress to Peter and Barbara.

    In his letter Robert also alleges in the letter that Peter removed the bolt at the bottom of the kitchen door, presumably to cover the fact that he removed it to facilitate the burglary.

    Peter has for some time been complaining that his e mail accounts have been hacked into and that Robert has accessed some of his e mails. In his letter Robert Hofschroer alleged that Peter Hofschroer’s computers had been taken. On my inspection I noticed that the computers were still in the house, but unplugged, disconnected and on the desk. This may indicate that the computers have been removed for the purpose of being examined to access Peter’s data. Peter has suggested that having taken them up the stairs and put them back on the desk, Robert, who is not a fit man then smoked a cigarette.

    I also find the fact that the apron -which was a present from Peter to Barbara that she was very fond of and used every day – was violently attacked with a weapon significant. Clearly no burglar would do this and then put it in the bin, particularly as there was lots of glasses to smash had he been so inclined. When we met on the 5th of July I alleged to you that Robert Hofschroer was believed by his family to be suffering from a recognized psychiatric disorder that affects some disabled people, which makes them believe that because they are disabled they are entitled to more than anyone else and to have feelings of injustice and rage against those they feel have more than them, or are denying them what is rightfully theirs. In support of this I read to you evidence from two of your officers of the most despicable verbal abuse of Barbara Hofschroer by her son Robert on the day her husband died. I also narrated how Robert attempted to make Barbara homeless, how he ignored her at the funeral of his father, cut off contact with her great grandson and examples of the harassment she and her devoted carer Peter have suffered while they are in Austria, including offensive messages on Christmas cards, false allegations of abuse and serious criminal offences, and ostracism. In this context, I believe that the action of slashing the apron with a weapon was conducted for private personal gratification is symptomatic of the hatred that Robert has for his mother and brother, and their close and loving relationship and that he put the apron in the bin on the way out to conceal this private act.

    The fact that the stair lift not operating is also significant. Barbara is disabled and the toilet is on the first floor, so the house has now effectively been rendered uninhabitable for her, further delaying her return. The longer that Barbara and Peter are away, the stronger is the case that Robert, Diane and Martin have that they have permanently left and can then sell the house.

    I would like to return to Fulford Road Police Station to meet with PC Pickersgill who is the officer investigating the burglary to go over the Hofschroer case including the full history of abuse, to have Robert, Diane and Martin Hofschroer arrested. I have a conference call with Magister Pfeifer on Tuesday the 12th concerning the case and I may then have to go to Austria. However, provisionally I would like to meet on Monday the 18th of July. Please can you ask PC Pickersgill to confirm if this will be possible for him by e mail. I may also need access to Inspector Cain. Unfortunately I do not have PC 130 Pickersgill’s e mail address, so I would be grateful if you would forward this e mail to the SOCO and PC Pickersgill.

    I think you are aware that Deputy Chief Constable Cross has separately ordered that I can only correspond with PC Pickersgill by post and has prohibited correspondence between myself and PC Pickersgill by e mail. This order is contrary to force and Home Office policy, which specifies that the public can correspond with the police by e mail and it is obvious that Deputy Chief Constable Cross has exceeded her authority. Further, she appears to have issued this order malice to cause inconvenience and inhibit my investigation of the burglary and consequently you should disregard it.

    I thank you in anticipation of your assistance in this request.

    Date: Thu, 14 Jul 2011 18:52:36 +0200
    From: Fraud Investigator
    To: ‘Quinn, Cheryl’

    Dear Detective Constable Quinn,

    Thank you for your e mail. Responding to your questions in the order you raise them:

    1. Peter and Barbara left their home in November or December 2009.

    2. The key holder at the time the burglary was committed in January 2011 was Robert Hofschroer. Robert Hofschroer entered their home on the 22nd of February 2010 using a locksmith and then changed the locks, he was the key holder from the 22nd of February 2010 until the 4th of July 2011.

    3. The photographs were taken a friend who held a key and looked after the property while Peter and Barbara were away, who accessed the property using the key at the request of Peter Hofschroer the night before Robert entered the property, that is the 21st of February 2010.

    Peter asked the key holder to photograph the inside of the house because he expected that Robert would complain about the state the property was in and wanted proof that the property was well looked after. Subsequently Robert Hofschroer falsely accused Peter Hofschroer of neglecting the property and neglecting his mother and the photographs were used to refute this.

    4. The photographs of the wash hand basin with the watch were taken by Mr Walker on Monday the 4th of July at 18.30. He accessed the house on the instruction of Mr Peter Hofschroer using a locksmith in my presence.

    5. The photographs of the wash hand basin with the watch were taken by Mr Walker on Monday the 4th of July at 18.30. He accessed the house on the instruction of Mr Peter Hofschroer using a locksmith in my presence.

    I hope that this information is of assistance to you. I am concerned that:

    1. The Police occurrence log states that Robert and Martin were seen taking items out of the house. They had no property there, so they were apparently stealing the property of Peter and Barbara Hofschroer.

    2. The SOCO report states that the garage was accessed using a key or the garage door was left unsecured. This is a clear indication that the burglary was arranged, probably to conceal the fact that property had been taken from the house by Robert and Martin Hofschroer.

    3. The bottom of the kitchen door was wooden not glass and the bolt could not therefore be accessed from outside by breaking the glass. The bolt on the bottom of the kitchen door had been removed before the burglary. I can think of no reason for removing the bolt other than to weaken the door and make it easier to force it. Peter and Barbara are both adamant that it was in place when they left.

    4. Although Robert Hofschroer made great play that the bolt had been removed from the bottom of the door in his letter to Peter Hofschroer, he did not bring this to the attention of the SOCO on the day or subsequently. The watch was kept in a drawer in Mrs Hofschroer’s bedroom.

    5. It is clear from the SOCOs report that the broken glass had been moved.

    6. Robert Hofschroer is specific that only the TV and the two monitors were taken in the alleged burglary. He does not mention that the DVD player and the glass shelf it was on disappeared and an attempt was made to take the two brackets. The SOCO Report does not mention this either, although it is very obvious. It appears obvious therefore that it was taken after the burglary and as Robert Hofschroer is the only person that had a key it must have been taken by him. Mr Walker is a Certificated Bailiff.

    7. When we secured the house, Mr Walker mentioned that he had seen the bracket from the TV in the house, in the garage I think, although this is not mentioned in the SOCO Report.

    This is part of a long running saga of harassment of Peter and Barbara Hofschroer by Robert Hofschroer both in the UK and while they have been in Austria. I would therefore like to ask that the investigation into the burglary is widened to include the wider campaign of harassment that it is part of.

    I hope this is helpful. I am happy to come to Fulford Road Police Station to sign a complaint on behalf of Mr and Mrs Hofschroer against Robert Hofschroer, or assist your enquiries in any way I can.

    I look forward to hearing from you in due course.


    Letter from DI Ian Dyer
    Dated 18 August 2011

    On “Safer Neighbourhoods” notepaper (what a joke, eh – how can the streets of York be safe so long as police officers are at large?)

    Dyer states:

    “All the evidence has been reviewed including the new evidence that you made us aware of. Your concerns the original reportee Robert Hofschroer was in fact the person responsible for the burglary were taken into account however there is no evidence to support the case that the burglary was committed by Robert Hofschroer and the reported burglary remains undetected.”


    Dyer is a known, active, habitual criminal who works for the crime syndicate known as North Yorkshire Police. He was the officer who refused unlawfully to process the harassment complaints because he is working in common purpose with Robert Hofschröer and his family to defraud Grandma B.

    Godmother Winward, who runs the cesspit of corruption laughingly known as Fulford Road Police Station, did not keep her word, so there was no follow up meeting. The fraud investigator has now been denied access to a police station to press charges.

    Robert Hofschröer, a serial abuser and violently psychotic, is employed by York Social Services to “deal” with vulnerable people. Obviously he enjoys the full support of the chief executive, the Lord Mayor and the entire senior management of York Social Services.

    How can vulnerable people be safe when York is run by a crime syndicate?

    Subject: Burglary
    Date: Mon, 29 Aug 2011 11:12:46 +0200
    From: Peter Hofschröer
    To: HMIC-Northern Region

    Dear Mr Sinnett,

    As you are aware, my 82 year-old, disabled mother Barbara Hofschröer is the victim of serious crimes committed by my older brother and his family, acting in common purpose with corrupt officers of North Yorkshire Police, his colleagues in the City of York Council and various local councillors.

    You are also aware that for over two years now, the fraud investigator Timothy Hicks FCA has been working on this case and has accumulated enough evidence to arrest, charge and hopefully imprison a number of the people involved in this case, including chief officers of North Yorkshire Constabulary.

    You may be aware that after my brother and his family’s attempt to fraudulently sell my mother’s house was thwarted, he faked a burglary to cover their theft of my mother’s and my possessions.

    Mr Hicks along with a Certified Bailiff examined the evidence and concluded that it was clear that my brother was the perpetrator. This issue was raised in his meeting with Superintendent Lisa Winward on 5 July 2011 (e-mail attached), who then asked DC Quinn to investigate (e-mail attached). She started to make enquiries, but then stopped and Supert. Winward then ended the investigation, refused to discuss the case with the fraud investigator, and then denied him access to a police station to press charges.

    Presumably this was because the evidence against her accomplice in crime Robert Hofschröer was so clear and overwhelming.

    Subsequently, DI Dyer wrote to Mr Hicks (letter attached) claiming the complaint had been investigated and there was no evidence to link Robert Hofschröer with the crime.

    Would you agree with me, having read the evidence attached, then DI Dyer is simply being blatantly dishonest and is acting corruptly to protect his accomplices in crime?

    I should add that DI Dyer has a history of corrupt behaviour in this case. When I reported the harassment my mother was suffering from my brother some years ago, he declined to investigate these crimes, despite the fact the police have a statutory duty to investigate all complaints of harassment of a vulnerable person. Would you not agree this is a further indication of how officers of NYP are acting in common purpose with my brother and his family to defraud my mother?

    You may have heard that the Parliamentary Question gets tabled next week. I would be grateful to hear from you if HMIC intends to restore the rule of law to North Yorkshire before then.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Yeah, right, Angela. Very unpopular story. Which is why 300 people gave it the thumbs up and 175 people gave it a FB like. You’re so far out of the loop you must be a copper. Or maybe you work for York City Council? Or Social Services? We all sure hope your granny is safe…..

        As ive said before:
        1. This is supposed to be a site about WHITBY.
        2. The thumbs up/down is not reflective of opinion as you can do it multiple times and ive proved it by doing it myself.
        3. Im not a copper/council worker/social service person/councillor etc
        4. I dont live in North Yorkshire at all
        5. Im entitled to my own opinion and as long as I stay within the site rules there is nothing you and your conspiracy theory bullies can do about it.

        Not that it is your business but all my grandparents are dead, but I would advise this guy get a better lawyer!
        Oh, and these 300 people have posted on this thread with their show of support? No, why I wonder….because 300 people havent thumbs it up, the handful of people who have posted have thumbs it up multiple times….or have I jumped on the conspiracy boring bandwagon..methinks not……;-)

    The fraud investigator has just sent this e-mail to Chief Constable Maxwell.

    One has to ask oneself the question why, for nearly four years now, he has declined to investigate any of the serious crimes committed against two elderly people and their carer, despite the overwhelming evidence, and why, instead he has made every possible effort, including through Interpol, to have their carer arrested on the basis of false allegations, for which there was clearly no evidence.

    Is it not clear that Robert Hofschröer, the main abuser, who is employed by York Social Services to “deal” with vulnerable people, when they know him to be violently psychotic, a serial abuser, and an active, habitual criminal, has an inappropriate relationship with senior officials.

    The evidence indicates that Grandma B’s case is the tip of an iceberg and that corrupt officials in N. E. England are running a crime syndicate in which they target isolated, vulnerable people and plunder their assets.

    The officer running the investigation into Cleveland Police is: DCI Franklin-Smith

    If you want to contact him to express your concerns and / or provide information for his investigation, his e-mail address is:

    ——– Original Message ——–
    Subject: FW: Burglary (Crime Number 12110014573) Hofschroer Case (Interpol Reference 4C/4326686/10) (BMeiA-GB.4.30.13/0011-IV.1/2011)
    Date: Mon, 5 Sep 2011 11:39:59 +0200
    From: Fraud Investigator
    To: ‘Drew, Annie’

    Dear Chief Constable Maxwell,

    Further to my e mail of the 9th of July 2011 below and another of the 12th of July 2011 to Superintendent Winward, I am writing to raise my concerns over the investigation into the above burglary conducted by your force. Briefly, in my correspondence I alleged that there were three separate offences of theft and burglary on three different dates by Robert Hofschroer as follows:

    1. Based on the evidence of neighbours in the police incident log that they had seen Robert Hofschroer removing Peter and Barbara’s property from their home while she was ill in Austria; it is alleged that Robert Hofschroer stole the property alleged to have been taken in the burglary. This being an offence of theft.

    2. Based on the evidence of the SOCO, photographic evidence from Mrs Hofschroer’s neighbours, photographic evidence from the Bailiff Mr Dodds, correspondence from Mr Robert Hofschroer and my own observations; it is alleged that that when it became clear to Mr Robert Hofschroer that the house would be re-occupied by Mrs Hofschroer he faked the burglary to explain the missing property that in fact he had stolen some months earlier and that he removed the kitchen bolt and left the garage door open to facilitate this.

    3. Based on the evidence of the SOCO and correspondence with Robert Hofschroer the DVD player was not stolen during the burglary; it is therefore alleged that Robert Hofschroer returned to 7hsi mother’s home after the visit by the SOCO and stole his mother’s DVD player and the shelf it sat on, which according to the SOCO were not stolen in the burglary, but were missing when the house was re-possessed. This being an offence of theft.

    Peter and Barbara Hofschroer and I have cooperated completely with the enquiries of Detective Constable Quinn and have now received a letter from Inspector Dyer dated 18 August 2011 in which he confirms the case is closed because: “ ….there is no evidence to support the case that the burglary was committed by Robert Hofschroer…..”. In response I would comment:

    1. No one interviewed the neighbours and allegation 1 above is not commented on at all. It therefore it appears that it was not investigated.

    2. According to the SOCO report the burglar either had a key or the garage door was left open for him and the bolt at the bottom of the door from the garage to the house had been removed to facilitate the burglary. It also appears that the glass in this door was broken from the inside. Clearly there is evidence that the burglary was a fake. I have written to Inspector Dyer asking if Robert Hofschroer has been interviewed and he has not responded. I have therefore concluded that he was not interviewed and that in fact this allegation has not been investigated at all.

    3. Allegation 3 above is not commented on at all and has obviously not been investigated.

    Although there is overwhelming evidence of crime against his mother by Robert Hofschroer, it appears that North Yorkshire Police will not investigate or arrest him, because to do so would confirm that he has been abusing his mother and would also confirm that the entire case has been mishandled.

    I attach fresh evidence from Peter and Barbara Hofschroer concerning the fake burglary and I would be grateful if you would order Superintendent Winward to re-open the investigation and provide a substantive response to these allegations. I would be particularly interested to read Inspector Dyer’s explanation of how a DVD player and a shelf can disappear into thin air.

      Escalate it to Professional Standards Branch, and copy Denis O’Connor into it (HM iNSPECTOR OF CONSTABULARIES) along with John Whittingdale, MP, Tom Watson, MP and Chris Bryant. Let them all know that police are not doing their job. Tell Yvette Cooper, too.

    Corruption in local councils and police appear to be RAMPANT all over the UK. Properties are being stolen under various circumstances, including fraudulent land title transfer. Children are being abducted by social workers with false accusations agains the parents. The legal profession is using the Court of Protection as a rich feeding ground, preying on the elderly and infirm.

    The government is taking no notice whatsoever, so must surely be involved.

    @sharon – ‘you are entitled to your opinion ‘ thankyou! You are another who seems to think they know a lot about me, when actually, they dont.

    ‘she also successfully sued similar comments to yours’ so sue me then. I have not broken any laws, nor I have broken any of the sites rules. I will repeat what I have said before:

    1.This is a site entitled ‘REAL WHITBY’..the clue is in the title. I am not disputing the threads popularity, but its reason for being on a site about Whitby.
    2. I will not be bullied by conspiracy theorists who get carried away.
    3. Anyone who thinks they can make unfounded threats against me..think on, I have a very good Police Force where I live and a very good Solicitor too. I am very sympathetic to this cause, but there is a time and a place for everything.

    @Daryl – dont waste your time explaining the cred of this site, it falls on deaf ears!

          Exactly. That’s what I mean by questionnable. I believe the Home Office is totally corrupt. You will get nowhere with the British government. The government ignores all emails. You have to start sending copies of your letters further afield and keep exposing them. Jacquie Smith, Baroness Scotland – they are all just as bad.

          ALL EMAILS TO GOVERNMENT ARE IGNORED. IT IS PART OF THE CORRUPTION. ASK ANYONE.Tthey know full well what is going on. They’ve been doing it for centuries. The gig is up now because of social networking. EVERYONE HAS TO START SHARING THEIR STORIES ONLINE.

            Agree with you entirely. When the abuse of Grandma B started, I thought we had just a couple of bent cops and dodgy social workers, whose managers would sort them out. Four years later. we’ve got up to government ministers, the prime minister and archbishops – and they are all turn a blind eye to this corruption.

              He said the modern Mafia has graduated to new levels of respectability. Today’s Mob is run by pillars of the business community and considered respectable by general society, he said.

              The people now pulling the strings are active in their communities and ever-present at political party fundraisers — because, Duchesneau said, they’re always looking for powerful friends.

              “They’ve graduated from Secondary 5 to doctorates,” Duchesneau said of how the Mafia has evolved since the 1970s.

              “It’s sad, but it’s the hard reality… We’re talking about a parallel system … where money, slowly but surely, makes its way into the political world.”

                Robert Goodwill- I asked for help, and he helped, i was going around in circles for 6months with a certain government department untill Robert stepped in……

                  When the Abuse of Grandma B started four years ago (see:, I was naïve enough to believe there were just a couple of bent cops and dodgy social workers involved and their line managers would deal with this – we were, after all, talking about a sick old man and his wheelchair-bound wife, so the authorities would step in rapidly and deal with the situation effectively.

                  Four years later, we’ve been through every appeal process, every complaint is rubber-stamped as “vexatious”, and the file has been on the Home Secretary’s desk for over a year now.

                  The criminal offences committed against Grandma B and her now late husband include:

                  Threatening with Menaces
                  Criminal Damages

                  and anything else I may have forgotten by now.

                  The response of the police was to claim these offences are “civil matters”, so they don’t have to investigate them.

                  Meanwhile, they have fabricated a series of charges against Grandma B’s carer, including

                  Offence unknown

                  They have made several attempts to arrest him, the last one being through Interpol. All these attempts have failed, because the allegations are false.

                  They have refused to provide any evidence to support the charges and the fraud investigator working on the case has established there is indeed no evidence, but the police will not withdraw these false allegations.

                  Robert Goodwill did indeed reply to an enquiry promptly, but exercised his right to waffle, rather than deal with the issue. I have written back requesting a specific answer. I await his reply.

                  Jane Kenyon has stood by and let corrupt police officers abuse two vulnerable old people for four years now. At times, I wonder what goes through the minds of people like that. I assume they had their conscience removed at the same time as their appendix.

                  I would however agree that the NHS has looked after my parents well. Mum and I were very impressed by the carers that looked after Dad in his last months.

                  “Too many” – there is no such thing when people are highlighting a problem. What were your complaints about? Noisey neighbours?
                  Try complaining about white collar crime – fraud against you, local council’s offences, offences by the state – you will get nowhere. Suggest you don’t understand the problems these people have had and would be better to keep your mouth shut.

                  Get this straight: ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) have a MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING dated 2001 with THE LAW SOCIETY. It is an agreement to PERVERT THE COURSE OF JUSTICE and states that POLICE WILL NOT INVESTIGATE FRAUD OR OTHER WHITE COLLAR CRIMES if committed by a member of the legal profession, UNLESS THE LAW SOCIETY ASKS THEM TO.

                  Think about that.

    There has been an extraordinary development in the Grandma B case.

    Chief Constable Maxwell stands accused of committing serious criminal offences against this 82 year-old, wheelchair-bound great-grandmother, including conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, etc.

    Nothing surprising there, as Maxwell is a known, active habitual criminal, who, as such, enjoys the full support of leading members of the Police Authority, such as Jane Kenyon.

    However, rather than having an outside force investigate the allegations, which is standard procedure here, Maxwell has ordered a subordinate in his own force to do so.

    Any guesses what the outcome is likely to be?

    BENT COPPERS, the lot of them. How can the streets of North Yorkshire be safe so long as Maxwell and his gang are at large?

    Meanwhile, Robert Goodwill MP is refusing to enter into correspondence on teh subject. I woner why…

    Apparently the vote of no confidence went 8 for versus 64 against. The 64 included 8 North Yorkshire Police Authority members – whom one would expect to be excluded from the vote on grounds of conflicted interest.

    They were Councillors Polly English, Fiona Fitzpatrick, David Ireton, Janet Jefferson, Carl Les, Brian Marshall, Helen Swiers and, last but not least, Jane Kenyon.

    Only Councillor Polly English had the integrity to abstain.

    Councillor Jane Kenyon’s register of interests is a sight for sore eyes!

    All the NYPA members have been very much aware of the systematic abuse of Grandma B carried out by Maxwell and his associates.

    Presuambly they do not have a problem with senior police officers committing serious criminal offences against vulnerable old people…
