To ask Her Majesty's Government when the case of Mrs Hofschröer was first referred to the Home Office; how many submissions about the case the Home Office has received, including Parliamentary Questions, during (1) the previous Government and (2) this Government; what evidence there has been of corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of trust by (a) North Yorkshire Police and (b) social services in this case; and what action they have taken to resolve the matter.

The Home Office has received two previous Parliamentary Questions and three letters in relation to Mrs Hofschröer's case. We have also received by e-mail regular representations from the noble Lord himself. This case is an operational matter for North Yorkshire Police.

This case has nothing to do with Peter Hofschroer. As stated above it relates to Mrs Barbara Hofchroer who is 83 years old, disabled and confused. Mrs Hofschreo rhas been teh victim of a serious fraud and is currently seriously ill and recovering from surgery in Austria.
I am very saddened that personal comments have been posted about her son Peter concerning events a long time ago, which are irrelevent to this question and distract attention away from her desperate situation, which is the real issue.

Why is the home office not doing anything if there is serious fraud? What was the serious fraud? Can't you take it to the press and get them to report on it? This sounds a terrible situation.

This is a shocking tale. You must take your evidence to the press and they will report it for you. Why has this case not received wider coverage?

If you have overwhelming evidence, then the media should have no trouble publishing a story about your troubles. However, I do not think that a lack of a denial is a strong enough argument at this point. I would send your evidence to the press or even an investigative reporter. I wish you good luck.

The media is controlled by the government, when it is not offering bribes to police.

It is not an operational matter when there is obvous corruption. It is a matter that the Home Office should be investigating - along with other similar reports of police corruption in other cases, which they also ignore.

If the Home Office believes it should not intervene, then it is is time for a total review of the way that government operates.

The mainstream media must report the story if the evidence is obvious. Could Lord Maginnis not go on television to promote the case like he has done for the likes of Garry Mackinnon?

It has been over two months since this question was answered and it appears Lord Maginnis has not followed it up.

Is he still actively involved in the case?

There appears to be serious collusion and cover up.

"You must take your evidence to the press and they will report it for you. Why has this case not received wider coverage?" says Carol Spearing.
Please forgive me Carol, but 'The Press' in Britain are not as you (& so many other others) believe them to be. They are as essential a part of the British Police State as was Josef Goebbels in Nazi Germany. Oh yes, they do 'expose' certain things (to make it appear they are 'our watchdogs'), but they cover-up the REAL horror!
100 or more years ago the then Lord Northcliffe said, "The power of The Press is great, but the power of suppression is much greater!"

For doing what the 'News Media'(??) fail to do, I have been forced to flee the land of my birth & seek safety in the Republic of Ireland. 2 years & 5 years in prison await me (SUPPOSEDLY for 'Contempt of Court') if I dare set foot in Britain again. For more see www.normanscarth.blogspot.com

Lord Henley chooses to close his eyes to institutionalised corruption.
