DEAD Lithuanian rapist granted £20,000 in legal aid for breach of ‘human rights’.

batbatbat

There is no use in always asking can things get any dumber because the answer will always be yes. Always!

I read things like this so often I’m no longer surprised but can’t help being outraged every time.  I don’t understand how things are allowed to even come close to making it a story worth printing.  But here you are.

This is RCOB reading folks.  I sincerely hope the shit who continued with this outrage, the rapist’s daughter, suffers the same fate at the hands of someone just like dear old dad. 
Oh boo-hoo, the bastards civil rights and right to privacy were violated. The cops put him in handcuff and so he was “humiliated.” Boo-Hoo.
I read stuff like this and all I can see is red.


Scandal of DEAD Lithuanian rapist granted £20,000 in legal aid for breach of ‘human rights’

A foreign rapist has cost the taxpayer £20,000 in legal aid after claiming his human rights were breached by people seeing him in handcuffs.

Astonishingly, his court battle was allowed to continue even after he died in May last year.

Vaclovas Faizovas, an immigrant from Lithuania, claimed he felt ‘degraded, embarrassed and humiliated’ when doctors and other patients saw him sitting in handcuffs as he waited to undergo chemotherapy sessions on the NHS.

At the time, the 51-year-old alcoholic was serving three and half years in prison for a serious sexual assault on a 22-year-old woman.

His daughter Inga - who was able to draw on funds from the Legal Service Commission and the Ministry of Justice - continued to fight the case after his death, although last week it was dismissed on appeal.

Yesterday the decision was called ‘a grotesque affront to common sense’.

Mark Wallace, campaign director for the Taxpayers’ Alliance, said: ‘It is ridiculous that this crazy case was ever allowed to start, never mind to continue after the appellant’s death.

‘This vile man never considered the human rights of his victim, so it is crazy that taxpayers will have to foot the bill for his own human rights case.’

Faizovas was jailed for sexually assaulting a woman whom he met while walking in Chadwell Heath, Essex in July 2005.

Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that he encouraged the woman to drink vodka with him and attacked her when she passed out.

He was jailed for 42 months in October 2006. While in prison, Faizovas underwent a course of 17 chemotherapy session for his pancreatic cancer at West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

The prison authorities assessed Faizovas as being ‘medium risk’, meaning he could not be trusted in open conditions.

He was also ruled to be ‘prone to violence’, with the potential to do harm.

Prison authorities also carried out a detailed risk assessment of West Suffolk Hospital, and concluded that there were ‘several escape routes’ available to a prisoner.

Accordingly, during each of his visits to hospital Faizovas was handcuffed to a prison officer. On arrival at the hospital, the handcuffs were replaced by a longer, secure chain.

In his High Court case against the Ministry of Justice, Faizovas said that on each visit he spent around 30 minutes in a public waiting room before going in to be treated.

Everyone there was able to see he was chained, which he found ‘very embarrassing and humiliating’.

Faizovas claimed this breached articles three and eight of the Human Rights Act - the right to life free of degrading treatment and the right to privacy.

When he died in May last year - two months after he was released from prison - the controversial case was continued by his daughter Inga Faizovaite.

The entire cost of both bringing and defending the failed action was born by the UK taxpayer.

A legal source close to the appeal team estimated the costs of bringing the case as ?20,000. The ?20,000 cost of paying the Ministry of Justice’s lawyers was also picked up by the taxpayer.

Miss Faizovaite, who continues to live in Britain, said yesterday: ‘Everyone should get treatment no matter what they’ve done.

‘I wanted to make sure something was done differently in the future.’

The Legal Services Commission, which hands out legal aid, pointed out that it cannot ban people from getting funding because their cause is unpopular.

A spokesman said: ‘All applicants for legal aid must meet strict financial and legal merits eligibility tests before they are able to access legal aid. Cases must have a good chance of success, raise issues which have a significant wider public interest, be overwhelmingly important to the client, or have significant human rights issues.’

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
