7/7 RIPPLE EFFECT: 'Muad Dibs' arraignment

TUESDAY 18.01.11 - Muad'Dib questioned the court's jurisdiction at His Arraignment at 10 AM at Southwark Crown Court.

The court did not reveal at what time the hearing would be until today (17.01.11).
Anthony John Hill/Muad'Dib's Arraignment/Plea Hearing
18 January 2011, London England


The hearing today took place as scheduled at 10 AM in Court 10 of the Southwark Crown court. For the first time since he was extradited to the U.K. on 20 November 2010, John Hill/Muad'Dib was allowed to attend one of his hearings.

The court was expecting a plea to be entered. Instead John Hill questioned the court's jurisdiction in this matter, and will be representing himself for the preliminary argument concerning jurisdiction. A trial date of the 9th of May 2011 was set. John Hill has requested the preliminary jurisdictional argument be decided by a jury, because no judge could be impartial in this matter, which is presenting a dilemma for the court.

The preliminary jurisdictional argument will be heard beginning on the 9th May 2011 and, depending upon the outcome, the trial on the actual charge will proceed if necessary.

The Crown response to the preliminary jurisdictional argument is due in 28 days, which is also when the Defence witness list and bail application are to be submitted. A new bail application will need to be made. The judge hearing the bail application will make a ruling on the bail application in relation to the jurisdiction argument. The court has thus far denied bail.

The judge has also allotted 14 days for the Crown to decide if any further allegations are to be made. The Defence case statements will be due 28 days after that.

John Hill has already been imprisoned for over 100 days for posting DVDs of the "7/7 Ripple Effect" to the Kingston court during the original trial of the 3 supposed 7/7 "helpers", who were subsequently found not guilty.

The DVDs were sent as an Amicus Curiae (Friend of the court) brief to correct misleading statements made to the jurors at the outset of the trial by both Justice Gross and QC barrister Neil Flewitt.
