High Court Orders Injunction Against Greg ‘Cure Ukay’ De Hoedt.

Greg De Hoedt

Greg De Hoedt

There is little else that needs to be said about this.  It is self-explanatory and is a total vindication of my action against De Hoedt to stop his lies and abuse.

I was forced to take legal action against four people with regard to the hate campaign that was launched against me back in 2012.  I reached a settlement agreement with Alun Buffry.  A consent order concluding my claim against Sarah McCulloch will be published shortly and De Hoedt is now restrained from repeating or causing to be repeated any of his lies on pain of going to jail.

The ringleader Chris Bovey is still to face justice.  Whether I can succeed against his great wealth and army of solicitors and barristers remains to be seen but the issues are the same.  Bovey is probably the most malevolent, dishonest manipulator I have met in my life and he is responsible for encouraging the other defendants into the conduct that led them to the High Court.  He has a great deal to answer for both to those he has misled and to the massive damage he has caused to the cannabis campaign in the UK.  I particularly regret the way he turned Greg De Hoedt against me.  I counted Greg as a close friend and it causes me great heartache that I had to pursue him to this extent.

Bovey has had my claim against him struck out on procedural grounds.  My appeal will probably be heard in the autumn.  Given new case law that has arisen in the meantime I have good grounds for optimism.  If I succeed and the substantive issues in my claim are heard then he will be looking at a damages award well into six figures. Bovey’s biggest problem is that if an award is made against him, he has the assets which the Court can seize.

Greg ‘Cure Ukay’ De Hoedt Ordered To Pay Peter Reynolds £5,000.

The Ringleaders

Yesterday in the High Court, represented by the top firm of media lawyers, David Price Solicitors and Advocates, Greg De Hoedt’s application to set aside the judgment I had obtained against him was dismissed.  He was ordered to pay me £5,000 and refused leave to appeal.

A full transcript of the Judgment will be published here shortly.  Suffice to say that the words spoken by the Judge, Master Nicholas Bard, vindicated me far more than I had dared to hope.  He also had extremely harsh words to say about Chris Bovey and Sarah McCulloch, the other people I have been forced to sue for defamation.

As far as De Hoedt is concerned,  he will have to find £5,000 14 days from now or face enforcement action. There is also a further hearing on 4th June 2014 when I am confident of obtaining an injunction against him restraining him from further defamation.  If he breaches this he will go to jail.

Greg was a friend of mine and I put a lot of time, effort and money into helping him, both with his health problems and his campaigning. CLEAR also funded him on one of his trips to the USA.  I greatly regret that he turned against me but I count him as a victim in this as well. He was misled and manipulated by Chris Bovey who is the real villain behind all of this.  Bovey is a liar and a bully, not to say Europe’s biggest dealer in highly toxic synthetic cannabinoids.  He will use and abuse anyone to achieve his own ends.  Justice will not be achieved until he too has been called to account.

Order 110414

Confirming my report of 11th April 2014, I today received the sealed Order from the High Court setting aside the judgment that Sarah McCulloch had obtained and reinstating the action.

I have made a generous and conciliatory offer to settle with Ms McCulloch and I am waiting her response.

Justice Prevails. De Hoedt And McCulloch Defeated In The High Court.

Greg De Hoedt

Greg De Hoedt

At 10.30am this morning there was a case management conference before Master Eastman concerning my claim against Greg De Hoedt. I was awarded judgement against him in February and the next stage is for a High Court Judge to assess the damages and costs he must pay me.

It is only now, after more than a year trying to avoid my claim, that De Hoedt has faced up to it and appointed solicitors.  They represented him today.  He was not present. His solicitors applied to have the judgement set aside.  Master Eastman refused.  They then applied for the proceedings to be stayed pending my appeal against the striking out of my claim against Chris Bovey. Again, Master Eastman refused.  It is now up to me to propose the next steps and how exactly a Judge can assess the damages I am due.

Sarah McCulloch

Sarah McCulloch

At 11.00am there was a hearing before Master Eastman concerning my claim against Sarah McCulloch. She had obtained judgement against me by deception.  She had made false statements to the Court and pursued an application without giving me notice, so I that had no idea that it was taking place.  Today was my application to have her judgement set aside. I was successful and Master Eastman ordered that my claim should be reinstated.

Master Eastman also considered McCulloch’s claims that I was harassing her by writing to her about the case.  She had made a further false statement to the Court that I had been given an ‘Harassment Warning’ by the police. In fact a police officer from Harlow in Essex had telephoned me a few months ago to say that McCulloch had made a complaint.  We ended up laughing together at how ridiculous her allegation was when I was writing to her about a High Court case at the address she had filed with the Court.

I explained to Master Eastman that ever since I had discovered that McCulloch is diagnosed with two mental health conditions I had made generous offers to try and settle with her.  He was gentle with her but very firm and told her however hard she found it, she had to communicate with me about the case.

Afterwards, McCulloch and I had a five minute discussion outside the Court and I made a further offer to settle.  She explained that she had now edited one of her articles to remove the false allegation that I had lied about submitting a report to the Home Affairs Select Committee in 1983.

My offer to McCulloch is very generous, far more so than it would be were it not for her health problems. It was sad that as I walked away she shrieked “You’re a bigot!”  Nevertheless, I remain hopeful that she will see sense and we can both put this unhappy episode behind us.

Sarah McCulloch To Face Perjury Hearing In High Court.

with 4 comments

App notice 090114

In October last year Sarah McCulloch submitted an application to the High Court seeking judgement against me on the  grounds that I had “not acted on my claim”.  This was untrue.  Also, in a bizarre twist she revealed that she has twice reported me to the police for harassment for sending her correspondence about the case!  These positions are clearly incompatible with each other.   Dishonestly, she submitted her application and attended a hearing on 19th November 2014 without ever notifying me.  She has now admitted this in writing saying that it was a “mistake”.

A hearing will take place on 11th April 2014 at which I  will apply to set aside the judgement that she has obtained on the grounds that she did so through deception and dishonesty.
