Greeks judge banned witness names to protect them from HA Supreme Court judge protected the identities of five imprisoned witnesses during the Greeks murder trial over fears that jailed Hells Angels dubbed the Big House Crew would harm them for co operating with the Crown.

Justice Bill Smart accepted that the witnesses would be perceived as "rats" who would be targeted by the Big House Crew, which circulates a newsletter identifying prison inmates who have testified pandora jewelry shop for the prosecution. Before issuing his sweeping publication ban, Smart heard from experts who testified that the Greeks were a criminal cell of the Hells Angels Calgary chapter and that the bikers would protect the Vernon gang finished pandora bracelets by going after "rats." "There is a real and substantial risk that they will suffer serious physical harm, potentially even death. It is also important that the potential for intimidation and retaliation be reduced," Smart said in his October 2011 order, an edited version of which was finally released Thursday. Hells Angels is a dangerous and violent criminal group that operates throughout Canada; its members use associated criminal groups or crime cells to commit much of the crime from which they profit; these crime cells pay a tax or percentage of their profits to the Hells Angels in return for their protection and support. members of the Greeks and an associate were convicted last November in three brutal slayings in Vernon in 2004 and 2005. And a lawyer working for the ruthless drug gang, William Mastop, later pleaded guilty to aiding the criminal organization. Key witnesses at trial were other members of the Greeks who were imprisoned for murder and whose names had been banned from publication or broadcast by Smart. Smart accepted the testimony of Ontario Provincial Police Det. Sgt. Len Isnor, who said that incarcerated Hells Angels circulate information about so called pandora anklets australia rats throughout the Canadian prison system. "He also explained that the consequences of being labelled a rat and testifying against a member of the Hells Angels death or grievous bodily harm may also apply to testifying against a crime cell member, depending on the impact of the profits flowing from the crime cell to the Hells Angels," Smart said in the 48 page ruling. "The Big House Crew is the equivalent of a chapter of the Hells Angels and its members are kept informed about the activities of the organization. Big House Crew members may cause harm to be inflicted upon inmates who are labelled rats because they have or will testify against members of the Hells Angels or members of associated crime cells." Smart also heard testimony from Correctional Service of Canada security expert Luciano Bentenuto, who said the Big House Crew has a newsletter in which information is printed about who is co operating with police and prosecutors. "When you're a member of the Big House Crew, they actually have what they call a Big House Crew newsletter that they send," Bentenuto testified. "They actually put in there, so and so ratted so and so They actually have movements that tell you which Hells Angel is going where, make sure you know he's really a Hells Angel so that you don't get fooled." In one instance, the Hells Angels outside an institution learned within hours that a so called rat had arrived at the facility, he said. Bentenuto said the CSC faces more challenges in housing inmates if it's known that they've co operated and testified for the Crown. They can be put in protective custody, but it affects their mental health and reduces their ability to access programs, he told Smart. "Prison culture dictates a very particular code of conduct within the confines of the correctional realm and it's clear that once an individual has been identified as a rat, has been defined as somebody that's broken pretty much the code of silence... and also is seen as someone who's betrayed the trust of other offenders," Bentenuto said. The Vancouver Sun and defence lawyers were opposing the bans shielding the identity of the five inmate witnesses, four of which were former Greeks members or associates serving life sentences for murder. The fifth was not in the gang and in jail for other reasons. All five inmates signed affidavits saying they feared their lives would be threatened if it was known they testified for the Crown. "I believe that if I testify in these proceedings and my identity is published or disclosed in any way, my life will be put in danger," one of the affidavits said. "I do not want to be placed in protective custody for the duration of my life sentence as a consequence of my testimony." Smart said that in reaching his decision to shield witness identities, "I am mindful of the importance of attempting to balance competing rights and interests and not simply deciding which right trumps the others." "However in this case, the most compelling factor is the risk to inmate witnesses if the protected information is disclosed," he said. NOTE: I was supposed to be off today, but when we got this ruling in the late afternoon, I was called in to write it up. But I haven touched blog comments since last night and won get a chance to for another couple of hours. No. There are rats in gp, and non rats in pc are many who are accepted and encouraged, especially when they are ratting for the benefit of a particular group. It disgustingly common for competitors to rat on one another, even just ratting such as Matt and many of his associates. Not so much providing evidence or testimony, just directing the police in who direction to look. No among thieves or greed and douche baggery. Much like your co worker throwing you under the bus to make a sale, get a promotion, or whatever, it gross and shameful. Why aren they labeled an organized crime group? Does the prison system do anything to prevent this newsletter from being circulated? What up with Canada? Has anyone read that immigration Canada let a biker in the country after police told them they were bad but believed the biker when he told them 1% stands for honesty, openness and respect. In the Greeks case, we were unable to even cover the key witnesses testimony and cross examination because of the bans. That meant that one of the biggest trials in BC history was not open for the public to learn about. Democracy counts on open and transparent institutions, including the judiciary. It is up to the CSC to look after the welfare of inmates. In this case, they are going to court and saying Gee, we can protect our inmates, so better to ban their names and all details about them. That is caving to the HA and to others that threaten people. I strongly disagree with that and so does my newspaper. The CSC, police and Crown should have positive incentives to get people to cooperate a better facility where they all get sent with some additional perks so that lifers will consider their own future and cooperate more often. Closing courts to the public, banning names is not the right track to be on. It is a slippery slope. Being a reporter yourself Kim,you of all people or any journalists for that matter, have a code that demands that you protect your sources for a number of reasons and at all costs,including in some cases,contempt of court of which could land you in prison. Having said that,it still leaves the possibility that the witness could in fact be a liar or presenting a tainted version of the facts or the truth in order to appease the police,the courts or to obtain financial gain or help get their asses out of prison. I don believe that money should ever be paid to a witness under any circumstances As a matter of fact I am of the opinion that no witness should gain anything at all except the righteousness of truth. Personally,I am of the belief that most of the so called testimony of the 150 odd witnesses that were rounded up and given god knows what $$$ amount over the course of 5 years while the Crown weaved the case together. In my opinion there should have been a ban in place regarding the witnesses testimony Kim. The witnesses pandora australia online testimony should have been Banned from the trial,as all of them did nothing but lie from start to finnish. talking about lies, Len Isnor and the fellow from the corrections lied on the stand. I write the Big House Crew Newsletter and never once put anyones name in there.

I post articles off the internet about charities we do or rides we are had, then i put one or to articles about cops gone bad,( from the Newspapers ) i have one page of jokes a word search and a crossword. all taken off the internet. you really think they don check what is being sent inside? whats troubling is when i see cops having no problem with perjuring themselves for their agenda.
