JFL provides an update on the case featured in his earlier podcast And Another Thing, explaining the successful outcome for his client: the prosecution was thrown out as an abuse of the process of the court, or, alternatively, because the prosecution related to an offence “unknown to law”. In a subsequent ruling, the Judge awarded JFL’s client a substantial six figure sum for costs.
As a refresher, the original episode featured the following:-
- Why the Ancient Woodland Inventory is a fake, and the hazard this creates for housing delivery
- The error of law in the Forestry Commission’s Operations Note 52
- The fraudulently construed Highways England felling licence, knowingly granted by the FC in deliberate subversion of the statutory framework’
