beginning to end Bexleyheath police has made mistake after mistake in their rush
to please their political masters at Bexley council. They issued a harassment
letter to Olly Cromwell (John Kerlen) for things he had never ever done. They
charged him for offences that we now know were not offences and he hadn’t done
When he was charged they distributed a press release saying that he was the owner of this website and although he was found Not Guilty they put out a notice yesterday (dated 14th May) to say he had been found guilty of “harassing various Bexley councillors”. Absolutely wrong. Probably libellous. Arnsberg Way would appear to be filled with the biggest bunch of incompetents ever to wear a blue uniform.
Click the announcement to see the original - penultimate paragraph. Be quick, I think Olly’s solicitor will be on to them quite soon.
Update: The announcement was partially corrected around mid-day today. The “named man” the police are so coy about is of course councillor Melvin Seymour.
Note 17th August 2012. At an appeal hearing where both Seymour and Bauer were called as witnesses and cross examined it became clear that it was Seymour who had dishonestly exaggerated the content of the Tweet in order to attempt a miscarriage of justice and Bauer had merely sent him a copy and took no part in its embellishment.
