Huhne Uses Anti Terror Legislation Against Wind Farm Protestors
The Green Marxists are stepping up the pressure to protect their sacred wind farms by abusing the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) 2000 to harass opponents to the Green Marxist Agrarian dream.
RIPA has been widely criticised that the act has been used for petty and vindictive cases, such as checking to see what catchment areas families are in for schooling and most famously for checking the contents of rubbish bins, a far cry from the original purpose of the act which was to fight terrorism, prevent crime and public disorder offences.
The Greenest Government Ever is using RIPA to harass George Watson Legal Advisor to the European Platform Against Wind Farms:
Legal Advisor to the European Platform Against Windfarms (EPAW), George Watson is being investigated by the UK government under special powers which are only to apply to criminal/terrorist activities, claims the Platform. A letter, reproduced below, has been sent to Chris Huhne, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, denouncing this improper use of the legislation, and announcing legal proceedings against the UK government. A formal complaint has been made to the Metropolitan Police.
According to EPAW, Mr Watson was also harassed by a police officer who visited his home in a Scottish rural area … on Christmas Eve!
Mark Duchamp, Executive Director of EPAW, declared that he was respectfully asking UK government Ministers if they intend to investigate and harass other members of the public who oppose the destruction of the British landscape, the killing of protected bird and bat species, and the deterioration of the health of wind farm neighbours. Mr Watson’s only crime, he said, was to have found legal flaws in the way the UK government’s energy policy is being applied.

3rd January 2012
REGISTERED LETTER AND FAX
Dear Mr Huhne:
Reference: Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA)
I contact you in relation to the above-mentioned legislation.
It was brought to my attention by another Government Department, quite by accident, that you authorised an investigation into my background/private life under the provisions of RIPA. I require you to provide me with the following information:
a) It should be noted that it would be negligent administration and an abuse of your position, if you did not have evidence that I was involved in criminal/terrorist activity before authorising such action. Taking this fact into consideration, I require details and copies of ALL instances where I was involved in criminal or terrorist activity. However, I freely admit I have been in constant touch with your office in relation to the idiotic policy of IWT’s and the danger to Human Health;
b) I advise you that I require a ‘true copy’ of any warrant granted and details of the issuing court. In addition, I require a ‘true copy’ of ALL additional material presented to the court in order to attain any warrant;
c) I require details/copies of ALL documentary information that was attained by your office through the illegal intrusion into my private life. In addition, I require written confirmation that the documentation provided is a full disclosure of information attained/held;
d) A ‘true copy’ of the authority signed by yourself for the illegal intrusion into my background/private life.
I advise you that I have instructed Senior Counsel to begin legal proceedings against the UK Government and you personally as an individual. I further advise you that as you have abused your position, this is actionable. A Petition will be lodged against the UK Government and yourself in the coming weeks, in which I will seek ‘Punitive Damages (Exemplary Damages) at the amount of £2.5 million (pounds sterling) on a 50/50 split between the UK Government and a personal liability by yourself. An apology is not sufficient in this case.
