Re the  MURDER OF HILDA MURRELL

  • Session: 2012-13
  • Date tabled: 03.07.2012
  • Primary sponsor: Austin Mitchell
    Sponsors:  Jeremy Corbyn, John Cryer, Kelvin Hopkins, Charles Kennedy, Dennis Skinner
  • That this House notes with concern that, as documented in the recent book entitled, A Thorn in Their Side: The Hilda Murrell Murder, by her nephew,Commander Robert Green, Royal Navy (retired), key forensic and other evidence was not disclosed at the 2005 trial and the 2006 appeal of Andrew George, who was convicted for the abduction and murder of the internationally renowned rose grower and anti-nuclear campaigner Hilda Murrell in 1984; further notes Michael Mansfield QC’s view that the book raises serious and substantial doubts about the criminal investigations to date into this controversial murder; supports Mansfield’s call for a Commission of Inquiry or a reinvestigation by another police force unconnected with any previous inquiries into the case; further notes the overwhelming endorsement of the same at public meetings in Shrewsbury and London in March 2012; recommends that all the relevant papers should now be published by the Home Office, the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the Sizewell B Inquiry, the Atomic Energy Authority, the West Mercia Police and the Northumbria Police; andfurther recommends that all these matters should be examined by the House of Commons Justice Committee.

    It is time to scrutinise the unanswered questions. Andrew George didn’t, at age 16, drive. Hilda’s Renault, dumped on the verge off Hunkington Lane, nearby to the concrete pad, was put there – to mark the spot. A mere red herring. Hilda, in the event, succumbed to exposure on a cold, dry, night, under-dressed and injured with a black eye, a broken shoulder and minor stab wounds – but that’s MANSLAUGHTER. If she had been frog-marched in daylight from Hunkington Lane she could easily have left by the same route once George had gone. After all, evidence was given that her car keys were in her pocket and Police have evidenced that she was frog-marched directly across a field, through a line of trees to reach the copse. She could have escaped on the same route, and driven her car to the nearest Police Station or, more likely, the hospital. She may well have driven past a dirty and disheveled Andrew George who would now be on foot escaping back to Shrewsbury from Hunkington Lane. According to Police, who must have looked for witnesses – well, they would, wouldn’t they? – he got back without being seen by anyone at all on a journey of several miles in daylight. But Hilda didn’t, couldn’t, get up and find her way back to the lane. That’s because the more likely scenario is that a 4×4 came in at night using the dirt road from the north, then turned around, dumped her off, and departed the same way, as evidenced by witnesses who saw lights among the trees. And that’s why Hilda, by now seriously disoriented could not see her way out of the copse, surrounded by trees as she was, and, although she wouldn’t have known that, drainage ditches and barbed wire. And, of course, the moat itself. All she would have to see by, at best, was the light of a gibbous moon, which would rise in the small hours. Andrew George was set up to be a patsy to take take the rap for a murder he did not commit – to take the heat off the political establishment after years of their pretence and hoping it would just ‘go away’. Like BARRY George before him, fitted up for Jill Dando’s murder by a foreign hit-man, both men were either ‘bad’, ‘mad’ or ‘sad’. They were certainly friendless and ‘strange’. Ideal patsies. Barry George has now been released – for the good reason that Police claimed to have found a single MICROSCOPIC piece of gunshot residue in his coat pocket (when, had he put a gun in there, there would have been THOUSANDS to choose from). That falsehood alone, and because the whole Police investigating team were dumbfounded that they weren’t told of such a development before the arrest was made, confirms that Barry George was fitted up. He is now fighting the Establishment for the compensation he richly deserves. Doctor Kelly similarly waits his own justice. He too was a thorn in the side of Government. He too was found ‘dead in the woods’, no pills in the body, no fingerprints on the knife that ‘did it’, no blood on the ground around, and a stab wound to a wrist that would have been intended to disguise a needle mark. But this time the dead person was a victim of a New Labour establishment. Both Dr.Kelly and Hilda Murrell were in a perfect position to blow the whistle on Government – Kelly, it was suspected, had the goods on the illegal case for war in Iraq and Hilda, it was suspected, on the illegal sinking of the General Belgrano. Police now need to go for the whole set, to find another patsy named ‘George’ that they can fit up to save some more Political ‘face’…

  2. Re Belgrano

    The truth would need to weigh the history of manufacture of unreliable torpedos and the roles in RN Intelligence for which Rob Green was trained.

    There may also be mileage in checking nuclear sub refits and the creation of acoustic pathways by alleged sub-standard work.

    How much of the true unreliability state was reported to Mrs Thatcher ? And to what extent did the known unreliability create an expedient plan to attack outside the EZ using obsolete but more reliable weapons ?

    Rob Green is aware of my findings agreed by two MOD Procurement experts at Plessey Torpedos in 1989. After some years of the factory being under Gwent Special Branch investigation suspecting saboteurs. An imaginative line of inquiry but I found it bogus. There was a wrongly wired factory corrupting static handling, test and software development. A flawed flow solder process. Fluorescents deriving power from supposed harmonics free clean supplies. A mavine which made dipping sonar that in fact had never been properly commissioned. Falsification of RN Test data.

    When my report and crime complaint was made to Gwent Police a minister stepped in and Gwent Special Branjch case file was transferred to MOD Plod and came to rest nil action with a civil servant called Hartley who was Head of MOD Plod MOD Procurement liaison. Marconi bought out Pleassey and closed the factory after re-wiring it and operating it for a while.

    Re Forensic

    Rob was helpful in gaining me the free expert opinion of Professor Bernard Knight. In a case called Matron Mary McGILL Decd. I now have serious concerns about the expert opinion of Professor Knight. Concerning bruising to ileac crests. The Attorney General is supposed now to be reviewing decades of refusing access to High Court to seek a quash of the 1972 suicide verdict. Ileac crest bruising is in fact an indicator of the possibility of anal rape or attempted anal rape.

    Professor Knight had opined there was nothing of forensic significance in the original autopsy report.

    Although he did pick up that there had been an addendum to the original report (after an existing full stop) that he doubted was the pathologist wording. “Of the type occurring with normal daily living”. Seeking to explain that bruising was innocent.

    Belgrano

    The truth must weigh the known unreliability of torpedo manufacture. Reports that submarine refits were sub-standard creating acoustic pathways.

    Gwent Special Branch were investigating Plessey torpedos of Newport. With a line of inquiry suspecting saboteurs.

    My findings in 1989 were prosaic. Wrongly wired factort corrupting static handling, test and software development. Flawed flow solder process. Dipping sonar manufacturing machine never properly commissioned to work to spec. management orchestration of falsification of RN Test data. There is evidence this had been the situation since Plessey relocated to Wales in 1976.

    My report was agreed by two MOD experts. I tried to make crime complaint to Gwent Police but, IIRC after the intervention of James Arbuthnot MP, the Gwent Special Branch file was transferred to MOD Plod.

    As far as I know the case came to nil action halt with the Head of MOD Procurement MOD Plod liaison. Marconi bought the factory out rewired and later closed the factory with about 1200 redundancies.

    My guess is that the reason Nott and Thatcher were ready to capitulate and not raise a task force was they were briefed on the true unreliability state of RN equipment. That an Admiral persuaded them to go for it and that even before a Task force was raised the need to use reliable but obsolete weapons by a Pearl Harbour surprise unlawful attack was in mind.

    Forensic

    Rob Green was helpful to me in getting a free expert opinion from Home Office forensic pathologist Professor Knight. In a case called Matron Mary McGILL Decd who died in 1972.

    I currently have serious concerns about the opinion given by the Professor. Ileac crest bruising. In fact it can be of forensic significance as it is indicative of anal rape or attempted anal rape. The Attorney General is supposed to be now reviewing again decades of refusals of access to High Court to quash the 1972 suicide verdict.

    Professor Knight with regard to the ileac crest bruising did pick up that there was a comment added in to the autopsy report he doubyed was written by patholgist. This was a lower case comment after an existing full stop “Of the type occurring with normal daily living”. IE Somone had tried to explain away or mitigate the implication of the bruises.

    Sizewell B

    I think it was a CID man called HERBERT who replied to the letter that argued there is an obvious connection between Belgrano and Sizewell B …. Engineering reliability. A role Rob Green had received analyst training for in RN Intelligence. Clearly if she could cite that even MOD Procurement monitored engineering ends up unreliable it would be a powerful argument to deploy when questioning nuclear engineering assurances.

    Mr HERBERT did not subscribe to any of the press conspiracy theory. All based on an assumption that Belgrano and Sizewell would be mutually exclusive lines of inquiry.

      Thank you for publishing my contribution above.

      Matron Mary McGILL was a volunteer residential matron at the HQ Care Home of the Leonard Cheshire and Sue Ryder charities, Cavendish, Suffolk.

      Mary imposed, from late Summer 71 to her death in January 1972, a duty week of 143 hours per week. To address appalling care standards.

      Mary had corroborative evidence of her care concerns from the North Essex Quaker community, who had withdrawn as Sue Ryder volunteers, amongst whom was a State Registered Nurse. Mary was never aware that her care concerns were also endorsed by local GP Dr Nini Ettlinger (Wife of academy artist Josef Herman). Nini’s history re holocaust may be a relevant factor.

      The Sue Ryder charity was founded by two MI6 chaps whose names will be familiar to those with nuclear industry concerns. Harry Sporborg and Airey Neave.

      In the undisputed affidavits in the appeal case (Currently being “Re-examined” by Attorney General) is a description of the Welsh Regional Crime Squad findings of 1972. That the charities were protected from police inquiry by an unlawful monitoring and corruption exercise orchestrated through Special Branch liaison. That A Welsh RCS Det sgt defied Special Branch and escalated inquiries (GP death registration malpractices associated with identity theft of UK identities … a bizarre line of inquiry but one RCS felt was meritted) and appears to have died, attracting a suicide verdict, during further inquiries he conducted in defiance of SB warnings.

      As you will know the ubiquitous Harry was Head of Hambros whose boss was “Tube Alloys” Sir Charles Hambro. After the war Butterworth Tech Press got the job of collating the documentation of the Nazi nuclear regime. Hambros funded a penniless MI5 interpreter to buy a publishing house and buy out Butterworth thus gaining the nuclear collation contract. Pergamon and Robert Maxwell.

      A surviving member of the Welsh Regional Crime Squad team left police and then worked for security at Plessey Newport (see above).

      Gwent Special Branch line of inquiry suspecting saboteurs (of sonar and torpedo manufacture) included into GLADIO rogue operations. If you or I came up with that we would be mocked as conspiracy theorists. So there in 1989 was the ex RCS detective at Plessey who, during police service, had encountered measures protecting Harry’s assets from the law, apparently working at site where Harry’s assets were attacking British capability (Harry was the creator of the GLADIO pan European network 1944 report to Joint Planning Cttee)

      That is how the ex RCS man and I met. And the two sides of police investigations of 1972 (Involving three suicides of those concerned at activity within the charities) came together.

      As I wrote above the reasons for Plessey unreliability were technical and prosaic and no “Gladio agents” in sight.

      Rob says that his Aunt Hilda was only involved WW2 in housing refugee children. It was something I wanted clarified as Sue Ryder and other ex SOE girls were working under charity cover in Europe (according to an unpublished confession with Observer) sending useful nazis to UK guised as refugees.

      Neave of course was a screening prosecutor at Nuremberg.

      Cheshire with Penney had been an official observer to the nuclear bombing of Japan. In spite of the emergence in Jan 44 that Cheshire had betrayed every bomber stream he flew with (using IFF over the target in breach of standing orders) he got a VC. He was discharged RAF with psychoneurosis. Then became a born again champion of the disabled just in time to be the moral voice in support of “Must have a British finger on the nuclear trigger”.

      A “Moral” voice not at all unhelpful to Hambros and Sporborg and Tube Alloys ?

      I can corroborate now the falsification of RN test data for torpedos going back to 1976. Sea trials Bahamas and a 100% recall finding 100% had the wrong Fairchild chips in. Not one should have passed factory testing. All had been certified fit for RN service.

      I have always made the argument that Belgrano and Sizewell were not mutually exclusive possible motives for the murder.

      But I also still wonder if Hilda was involved in housing useful “Refugees” postwar. The receiving end of Operation Paperclip which involved ex SOE gals like Suzy Ryder. And whether there is yet another dimension to what Hilda may have said ?

      I understand that after the Horst Kopkow early PRO releases a few years ago that “Impeccable Intelligence sources” briefed press that Intelligence had long suspected that charities were set up in UK ostensibly to help “Refugees” but in fact as assets of the Nazi (useful nazi) ratlines.

      In 1971 official Sue Ryder and MP Airey Neave “Released” 1200 men reportedly held in germn postwar internment. An internment certified by the official …. Suzy Ryder. As these 1200 men dispersed that was coincident with Matron McGill’s and the Welsh RCS Det sgt’s concerns being raised. One suspecting a hidden agendas in the charity and the other investigating GPs death certifications as a means to acquire UK identities (Bury John Smith as Slobbovitz and issue John Smith identity to A N OTHER)

      Finally after that labyrithine intrigue. I reported by invitation to the post Jap tsunami review of UK nuclear security and safety. Unreliability and sabotage of back up generators (See Dounreay and Hunterston B etc) Pleased to say that the recommendations of dividing control systems and dual fuelling go a long way to remedying a dangerous situation.

    Kate. Charles Littlejohn was a legal advisor to your goverment. He was a wartime colleague of Matron Mary McGill’s brother Alfred,

    In 1972 in Suffolk the inquest into Mary’s death was held in secret within the Sue Ryder Home where Mary died. Held just 3 days after the death. Sue Ryder told the NZ family that autopsy had determined natural causes and she concealed that Mary drowned and than an inquest was about to be held. The inquest returned a suicide verdict. But conned that a natural causes death cert was in post the McGills of NZ allowed Sue Ryder in England to get the body cremated. When Leonard Cheshire and Sue Ryder were asked about this they replied to a friend of Matron McGill “Let the McGill family find out from the papers like everyone else”

    So the McGills were conned out of inquest representation and conned out of rights to a full autopsy (Which almost certainly would have picked up the significance of ileac crest and other bruising).

    In NZ Alfred McGILL looked up Charles Littlejohn. That is how by March 1972 two months after the death, the NZ Prime Minister was involved.

    The High Commission in London was instructed to approach the Home Office seeking to re-open the inquest.

    What happened was that the Home Office fobbed off the NZ govt with an offer of a report to be prepared by Suffolk Chief constable.

    This report even attributed lies to HM Coroner (I didn’t call Ryder in evidence because she was not at the home when Matron McGill died)

    In fact Ryder was there and had feigned flu to avoid giving a police statement to me. Cheshire hid from police on the day of the death. But there is a serious anomaly in that his solicitor later claimed that the home was circulated to select inquest witnesses on the morning of the death itself. That was clever because police were not called until 3.40 PM.

    Cheshire made his own statement almost certainly with sight of the other statements.two days later.

    A male nurse was physically prevented from accessing the inquest within the building by Suffolk Police officers.

    Whoever did the inquest witness selection, before the body was officially discovered, knew that without an advance statement those rejected would not be able to give evidence.

    Matron McGill retired in 1971 from her position as Deputy Matron of Dee Street Hospital Invercargill. Then volunteered a year of voluntary service to Sue Ryder. By December 1971 Matron McGILL was writing to a Quaker friend about bizarre incidents. Like the Georgian Prince Muslim inmate being tranquillised and converted to Catholicism. And planning to leave. She gave notice in January 1972 and had jabs such as cholera to volunteer for a nursing post at a cholera outbreak overseas. The day of her planned departure she was reported drowned in the home boating lake.

    Six months after her death Barbara Castke shadow minister raised her care concerns in the Commons. Sue Ryder inmate Stefania Bronk was found dying facedown in her bath at the time Barbara was pressing for a public inquiry into care standards in the charity.

    The public inquiry was refused by minister Sir Keith Joseph. Mary’s family were from Putaruru.

    Why the RCS Wales account was interesting to me in McGILL Decd 1989 et seq (I resigned police 1972). The Special Branch unlawful secret monitor.

    In 1972 I transported Mary’s body to Bury St Edmunds Hospital Mortuary. From there I phoned the Duty Detective Inspector to call in CID and a police photographer re bruising to the body and winging of the costal margin. The DI immediately tried to order me to throw away her clothing and footwear to prevent it being forensically tested. I realised that a third party had called the DI before I did. Who the hell would do that and have the clout to initiate a stitch up of a sudden death inquiry.

    My feet didn’t touch after refusing the unlawful order. But I always said I will honour the constable oath unto death. To pursue justice faithfully only unto law.

    So 17 years later when taking a look at what was going on in the Plessey torpedo factory (I am an electrical engineer) meeting the ex RCS Detective was the key. Grounds to suspect that Special Branch had corrupted the McGILL inquiry.

    It was about 91 I communicated with Rob to tell him my findings at Plessey. I don’t recall if that was before or after Tam Dalyell phoning me about it.

    Rob spoke about Gladio about to be exposed by BBC 2 in 91 Of course in 1990 the EU had passed a resolution on member states to investigate and dismantle unlawful armed groups like Gladio. UK did not comply.

    Your barrister Michael Mansfield didn’t act to make issue of this in the Stephen Lawrence case. And neither does his charity British Irish Rights Watch “Educate” the public in IRA plans for industrial sabotage.

    In August 97 Kent Police Authority called on their Chief constable for inquiry and report compliant with the 1990 EU Resolution. Paramilitary activity based in Deal Kent which linked to the Belgian Senate Inquiry into the role of their own police para commando units in the Brabant killings cases (24 terrorist murders in Belgium)

    Kent Police refused to comply with their own authority’s call for inquiry. This was coincident with Kent Police investigating Met handling of the Lawrence murder. The question is whether the Kent paramilitary cases shared common lines of inquiry with the Lawrence case. Met CID and gun running to far right groups.

    Jack Straw Home Secretary refused to compel the inquiry (featuring 38 deaths) called for by Kent Police Authority. Straw had delayed giving a decision but in 1999 was expedited by Sir Ronnie Flanagan Chief constable RUC. Who was concerned at the implication Kent Chief constable had refused to investigate right wing paramilitary collusion in Kent. Hardly reassuring as Kent Chief constable had been deployed to reassure Ulster of evenhandedness in the collusive murder of human rights lawyer Rosemary Nelson.

    Michael Mansfield’s charity BIRW might be expected to have made much of this history in their submission to the later tribunal on the Rosemary Nelson case. Kent Chief constable had indeed suddenly left the Rosemary Nelson murder inquiry after the RUC found out Straw was refusing to compel inquiry called for by Kent Police Authority. After they found that Straw was endorsing UK refusal to comply with the EU resolution.

    But neither in Lawrence nor in Nelson did Michael Mansfield or his human rights colleagues pipe up.

    I wonder why ?
