HARVEY PROCTOR: Denby, Proctor & Powell

DENBY, PROCTOR & POWELL

THE FACTS

After lengthy investigation and research, I am now happy to provide as much information as I can about the relationship between Jonathan Denby and Harvey Proctor as well as the articles regarding the serious incident in 1986 which left two policemen traumatised, one man dead and another serving 8 years in prison.  This is done as a matter of public record – everything I provide here has been gained through public sources.  Many have assisted with the aim of showing a bigger picture and I’ve collated it and provided the platform to post it on their behalf, and for reasons that will become clear.

On behalf of myself and others, thanks go to EVERYONE who have helped by providing information.  No matter how small, it helped to build a bigger picture and we are extremely grateful.

Make yourself a cuppa and make yourself comfortable.  This is a mammoth post and there will be more to come covering other elements.

JONATHAN PETER DENBY

In case you are unaware of this individual, let me introduce you to the cousin of outspoken barrister, Barbara Hewson, (who, in 2013, appeared on Channel 4 news in a car crash interview to discuss an article she wrote regarding paedophile crime – despite not being a criminal barrister – and stating that the age of consent should be lowered to just 13 years old.)

Their uncle was Sir Richard Denby, who took over as President of the Law Society from Sir David Napley, and who raised Jonathan.  Jonathan (or Peter, as he liked to use when he appeared in court) has done many things in his life but you may know him now as either a man that appeared on a reality tv show as a Basil Fawlty-a-like, or helping “poor people”, or a gardener.  These personas are far removed from the Denby I will introduce you to.  He has the most colourful background.

THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF THIS WHOLE STORY IS FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHY THERE IS A CONCERTED EFFORT BY A MALEVOLENT COLLECTIVE TO SHUT DOWN ANY MENTION OF DENBY AND HIS CLOSE RELATIONSHIP TO HARVEY PROCTOR, WHO WAS INVESTIGATED AS PART OF OPERATION MIDLAND, AND THE REASONS BEHIND THE MALICE TOWARDS SURVIVORS OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE AND THEIR SUPPORTERS, EVEN DURING ONGOING INVESTIGATIONS.  IT IS ALSO A GOOD ILLUSTRATION OF HOW SOME PEOPLE ACT WITH IMPUNITY THROUGH LIFE, HURTING OTHERS, AND THEN REINVENT THEMSELVES WHICH IS DISGUSTINGLY OFFENSIVE TOWARDS THOSE LEFT HURTING IN THEIR PATH.

Denby was born in 1948 in Yorkshire.  He attended York University where, in 1967, he became chairman of the university’s Conservative Association and Monday Club taking over from Harvey Proctor.  THEY HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR 50 YEARS.  He first made waves back in York University when his co-patriot Conservative students distanced themselves from him after he requested a suspension of student funds in an effort to halt the financial support for an overseas student who was running as an independent.

Upon graduating in 1970, Denby began working as an aide to the MP, Enoch Powell.  He and Proctor were STILL in touch with each other – this is documented in Proctor’s failed book where he talks about lunching with Denby.  Denby remained in post for three years until passing his university exams.

He then undertook a number of profitable deals with a man called David Whitworth, including one for the Russians selling cement to Saudi Arabia.  Whitworth becomes an important element to this story a little later on.

In July 1978 Denby had set up a partnership with two fellow solicitors – Robert Neal and Michael Lloyd.  ‘Lloyd, Denby Neal Solicitors’ were based in Camomile Street, London.  Denby seemed to specialise in marine litigation.

1983: Denby represented Proctor for the first time in his case against The Sunday People, who published an article claiming he had failed to correctly address Margaret Thatcher in the Commons.  Denby also assisted Whitworth to negotiate a deal between the East Germans and Blue Circle Industries in Aldermaston, Berkshire.  It was a contract worth $4.8m per annum.  Also in this year, Richard Denby was awarded a knighthood.

Unfortunately this is where things start to go wrong because Denby was investigated for accepting a £133,000 ‘secret commission’ (bribe) from Greek shipping by his clients, the Iranian State Shipping Lines and found guilty of doing so.  In scenes reminiscent of his behaviour at university, his partners distanced themselves from him.  He was dismissed and Lloyd Denby Neal was dissolved.

Denby then set up a business with Sir Richard Denby.  However, newspaper reports whilst he was on the run show that not only was he investigated over a bribe, he had also practiced for two years without a relevant certificate, which was due to “an administrative error”.

Denby and Proctor remain good friends.

AND FINALLY….

Can I back up what I’ve put in this blog post?  Absolutely.  It’s all a matter of public record and that’s why I’m also publishing every single thing I’ve used to collate this information.  It’s also worth noting that the articles on Google Newspaper Archive have now been omitted when you attempt a name search, but are still visible if you browse by date.  I have provided these anyway.

You cannot be silenced for telling the truth or discussing something already in the public domain.  I’ll leave you to research and form your own conclusions as to why someone shows such malice towards survivors and their supporters and the strong connections to one of the accused in Operation Midland – so strong, in fact, Denby was visited and questioned by police working on Operation Midland in regards to Proctor.

A PERSONAL NOTE TO EVERYONE ELSE:

There is no doubt that people will do their utmost to continue covering this up by getting this shut down, as has happened to other blogs with far less information than I have provided here.  I implore you to screenshot it and post it far and wide.  It’s on PUBLIC RECORD.  Don’t allow your FREEDOM OF SPEECH to be stifled by someone who has her own vindictive reasons to keep it quiet.

Letter from Bee Carthew:

…could question him again.  This resulted in J being remanded until 8 July when, he says, he will either be freed (??) or sent for trial.  If the latter he could have to wait 6 or even 12 months (in gaol or on bail if he’s lucky) before coming to trial.  Although he’s putting a brave face on it, I think he dreads this.  He would probably be transferred to Brixton.

I asked J what he plans to do with the rest of his life if freed.  He told me he wouldn’t want to go back to the old life which he says he didn’t really enjoy.  He says he was happiest while (on the run) in Richmond, Yorkshire, having to work and had to earn his keep and he thinks he would go back to Yorkshire.  I got the impression that while he has some boodle tucked away he was unable to get at it while ‘on the run’, but will be ok if freed.  He is still in trouble with the Law Society but, he says, only because he abandoned his practice.  He is also in trouble with the Iranians – not his clients who, he says would help him if they could, but with the government because the government has virtually taken charge of the case (this is how I understood what he said).

…the prosecution and defence lawyers had “come to an agreement” that it would not be necessary to call Mr P as a witness!  J seemed to think E would be glad to learn this.  I must say I never imagined for a moment that they would want to call E.  Why, for heavens sake?

H is being hassled by a D Express reporter called Chris Hutchens.  H has persistently refused to give the man an interview, so he said “oh, well I will have no option but to put in a para to the effect that you are seriously ill and have become a recluse”.  What high standards of journalism we have these days!

I met Waddington the other day.  He’s a sharp little man and I had quite a chat with him.  She is rather nice and rather fein too.  Also Harry Greenway, whom I had met before and the awful Parkinson!  I have only seen him once before – about a year ago – and he has coarsened in looks quite amazingly since then.

Rumour has it that he is hitting the bottle and that is certainly what his face looks like.  I thought he was quite horrible.  All the stupid women were round him like flies round a jam pot.  Yuk!

There’s nobody there to be interested in now, absolutely nobody.  I shall have to give all my allegiance to Caspar Weinberger and Clive Worth!

Having a get together with George and seven others (conspirators all) at the Caledonian Club tomorrow night.  Devoutly hope that Sir Alf is not present.  Next time he compares Israel favourably with Britain in my hearing, I shall explode.

Hope you and Enoch have had a chance to recover a little from the exhaustions of the election and aftermath.  It was lovely to see you the other day.  You looked marvellous.

Heaps of love,

Bee
