As they say.
You couldn’t make this up if you tried. Are these people seriously thick or are they taking the pee? You know the way they conduct themselves on twitter is quite amazing.
Well as a continuation from yesterday we have learnt that Tony Bennett is planning to call Mike Gunnill as a witness, fine, I don’t think Mike Gunnill has anything to worry about, do you?
But Tony Bennett should be worried. You see once you call someone as a witness or plan to call them as a witness, certain rules and laws come into force. And one thing any Judge deplores is witness intimidation. If a judge hears of witness intimidation then he will come down heavily on those that intimidate a witness and if it is proven that the defendant is actively supporting this intimidation or if the defendant doesn’t put a stop to it, then the chances are the judge will not be lenient with the defendant either and could hold him accountable.
A witness in any case is protected by the Courts… end of story.. no arguing.. that is the rules and legal criteria of the Courts of England and Wales.
So what do the supporters do, once they hear that Tony Bennett is planning to call Mike Gunnill? They hit twitter with abuse and accusations directed at a possible witness in a case to be heard at the High Court.
Bennett and the moderators of the forum he is on have already allowed several posts to stand (after notification that Mike Gunnill could be called as a witness) with reference to Mike Gunnill including one post, made by JD, in which he says:
Any fair judge will see that mike gunnill’s actions, words, behaviour and sole motive constitutes to nothing less than 100% entrapment
Along with this post that was made before JD’s, in which a member called Tiny says:
what can one say,except the mccanns have a lot to answer for,but it is good to see that gunnill will have to take the stand,what an odious person that gunnill is.i wish you all the best tony.
With uppatoffee making two posts with regards to the possibility of Mike Gunnill being called. They say in their first post:
I will be interested to see what Mike Gunnill has to say for himself in the witness box!
And continues in their second post with:
I think there are a number of reasons to be relatively optimistic. The judge has asked to Mccanns to massively reduce the number of claims against Tony, suggested that their lawyers are wasting time presenting weakly supported claims and agreed to Tony calling Gunnill to show entrapment by the Mccanns.
Well it seems that the abuse has even spread further than the forum that Tony Bennett posts on, it is now engulfing Missing Madeleine forum where one member has posted this:
P.S. My “signature” about slithering creatures was chosen for Mike Gunnill in particular. *
Now I am no legal expert, but even I know for a fact that the last thing Tony Bennett needs is for a pack of anti-McCann vigilantes to harass a potential witness in a Contempt of Court hearing to be held at a later date. And if Bennett had even an ounce of a legal brain he would have asked his members and supporters not to speak about Mike Gunnill as it could jeopardise, calling Mike Gunnill as a witness.
Too late, all captured and I am sure Mike Gunnill has more evidence to support the possible intimidation of a potential witness.
These people are treating and mocking the legal system of England and Wales and treating this as a Court case being held at Trumpton. Judges don’t like their courts to be made a mockery of, and they deal harshly with perpetual offenders who defy the laws, including those that govern the protection of witnesses.
As they say some people are a few biscuits short of a packet at times….
