A contradiction in terms

A phrase that is confusing because it contains words that seem to have opposite meanings:

An honest politician – isn’t that a contradiction in terms?

Cambridge Dictionary

A phrase that contains words which have very different or opposite meanings

I think “working vacation” is a contradiction in terms.

1 – Liam Allan – Behind the breakthrough: pressure and trauma

Back to menu

6 jun. 2019

The publicity around Liam’s case was perhaps the single biggest corner turned so far in the fight against false accusations and police failures.
 
Liam’s fresh faced appeal gave him a media platform and showed his apparent confidence to the world. Few saw the trauma fears and difficulties that came with presenting his innocent student’s story to TV journalists, and dealing with the reaction.
 
Now well into the journey of organising a successful series of conferences on the “Innovation of Justice”, Liam’s promise, to never stop fighting to get some return to sanity in the processing of rape/sexual assault cases, has inspired hundreds and made his face well recognised across the world.
 
pushing this and the main film, “We Believe You” can help the raised awareness and to restore justice

Well done Liam for working to restore some balance to the current state of injustice for the huge growing number of falsely accused people.

The police investigate this case for a whole year and fail to find these crucial messages? That says something about what efficient investigators they are.
Patrick Graham
all police forces across the country – still doing this – as Mark Pearson points out – every time they are exposed as criminally perverse, they say “lessons will be learnt” – they never are.

Thsi happened to me but hopefully due to new evidence I can atleast press charges and clear my name
Patrick Graham
 @Khan’s Clothing Blogs  I wish you the best of luck – the police are extremely resistant to pressing charges against false accusers – because they are complicit at the very least themselves. and the CPS are as separate from the police as a foot is from a leg.

2 Liam Allan & Hannah Arkwright: False Allegations and Miscarriages of Justice

Back to menu

1 mei 2021
 
Liam Allan and Hannah Arkwright both faced false allegations. In Liam’s case the police investigation led, after over a year, to trial for rape and sexual assaults. It was only on the second day of the trial that the police revealed that they had all the data from the complainant’s phone and were relying on a small number of text messages which they had disclosed.

They resisted disclosure of any of the other information found on the complainant’s phone, assuring Liam and the court that there was nothing of relevance. The judge ordered disclosure but gave only 24 hours for Liam and his defence to review the thousands of text messages.

In the short time allowed they found enough to show that the allegations had been without any foundation.
The case was immediately dropped by the prosecution.

Liam has no doubt that the police knew about the texts which proved his innocence but had persisted with the prosecution and non-disclosure.

Liam and Hannah have set up a thedefendant.org.uk as a website, with a helpline, to offer support to people involved criminal proceedings.

It is the only support service in the UK. Helpline number – 0300 124 5098; Opening times are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 6pm-10pm Support email: support@thedefendant.org.uk Crowdfunder is

My name is Silbya and i am from Louisiana I have a true Domestic abuse case and he used criminal charges to help him get ahead in family court. I had both of the criminal charges dropped because they had nothing of any value to support the story. However the damage has been done in my Family court case. They had no desire to listen to the truth and ignored it. So in a criminal courtroom i was given more fair treatment than in Family Court. Luckily for me, i started to record everything after the 3rd false arrest even the family court trial. I was in that courtroom alone and knew i should make sure i had a true record of what was said. I am now getting ready to sue the men and women involved in this situation because i have no confidence in going back into a courtroom with people that have no value in morals or in doing their duty as a public servant.

It’s so scary how false allegations are so easily used by women. Why isn’t it illegal to make false allegations?
