The freedom of speech hating parasite known as the canadien joos have struck again... this time friend Artuhr Topham. This shit is getting OUT OF CONTROL AND NEEDS TO BE STAMPED OUT IMMEDIATELY. Any one else getting sick of these Rights violating swine? I know I am. Its time to start gathering and file calss action suits against these bastards. Their time is up and they know it. These are actions of desperation.

Arthur Topham, publisher of the Radical Press website, was arrested on May
16, 2012, at 11:30 am on the Barkerville Highway near Quesnel, B.C., put in
handcuffs and taken to jail. Apparently, Arthur´s home had been staked out
for quite some time by the RCMP.



The warrant for his arrest read "commission of hate crimes" and was
endorsed by Arthur´s special "friends" and professional denunciators
Richard Warman and Harry Abrams of B´nai Brith, Canada.



What the Canadian Hate Crimes Tribunal failed to do, seems to have been a
cinch for Rich and Harry, law or no law. In Canada, when B´nai Brith
whistles, the RCMP jumps.



While in jail, Arthur´s house was raided and his computer equipment
confiscated, including all his files. During the raid, Shasta, Arthur´s
wife, wasn´t allowed into her home for 9 hours. Once the RCMP had taken
what they wanted -- we wonder where the bugs are now hidden -- and finished
questioning Arthur, he was released at 11:00 pm.



Arthur is now back home again, but prohibited from sending *ANY* emails or
expressing any opinions about the issues all too familiar to us. In other
words, freedom of speech, which he so passionately fights for, has now been
stymied by unconstitutional summersaults, technically and "legally"
muzzling him, for the time being. Without compunction, might is right in
Canada.



Arthur advises* NOT* to send him any emails, since those would only wind up
at the RCMP instead. What Arthur would like to have send to him -- by snail
mail etc. -- is money, since he is -- always has been -- chronically broke.
It would help to defray some of the legal expenses he will now incur.
Arthur has asked Doug Christie, prominent defense lawyer in the Ernst
Zündel case, for legal assistance and Doug agreed to help him without
hesitation. He is one in a million!



During the last 14 years Arthur has literally spent tens of thousands of
hours, and God only knows how much energy, sleepless nights and missed
opportunities for personal advancement, in defense of our right to free
speech and the exposure of vital truths, to the benefit and enlightenment
of us all. That´s unselfishness at it´s best and I think it deserves some
signs of appreciation.



So, please, kindly express them.

New "Hate" Charge Files Against Topham: Defence Denied Statement of
Particulars

Here's the executive summary of this update in Arthur Topham and his
Radicalpress.com's battle against charges under Canada's notorious thought
control "hate law" (Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code.)

1. Mr. Topham, a layman with no background in law, has been denied legal
aid in a Rowbotham Application. He must handle his defence in his
preliminary hearing alone.

2. Just before the preliminary hearing was to start, January 22, he was
charged with a third count of "hate":
I,* "Roy Arthur Topham, between the 29th of January, 2013 and the 11th day
of December, 2013, inclusive, at or near Quesnel, in the Province of
British Columbia, did by communicating statements, other than in private
conversation, **willfully promoting **hatred against an identifiable group,
people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2)
of the Criminal Code." * Notice: There are no specifics as to which
statements are deemed to have promoted hatred against this privileged
group. It's hard to organize a response or defence in a background. This is
prosecution by ambush.

3. The Court refused to compel the Crown to produce Mr. Topham's
tormenters, complainants Richard Warman and B'nai Brith operative Harry
Abrams or the two "hate squad" investigating officers (Terry Wilson and
Normandie Levas.)

4. The Court turned down Mr. Topham's application for particulars on the
two original counts: specifically, which posts were deemed to promote
hatred against Jews.

5. Finally, with the full might of the State arrayed against an
impoverished, unrepresented victim, wave the bully fist of further
restrictions on him: Crown Counsel Johnson announced, writes Mr Topham,
that "* after the upcoming Preliminary Inquiry an application would then be
made to the court in order that Crown might attempt to impose new
restrictions on me to prevent me from publishing any more truthful articles
and opinions on RadicalPress.com <http://RadicalPress.com/>."|*

*Regina v The Radical Press: LEGAL UPDATE #16
<http://www.radicalpress.com/?p=4081>*

*January 16th, 2014*


*Dear Free Speech Advocates and Radical Press Supporters,*


My last update of November 20th, 2013 focused mainly on the
*Rowbotham* application
that I had applied for in order to have Regina pay for a lawyer to defend
me against her spurious sec. 319(2) "hate crime" charge that resulted in my
arrest and incarceration back on May 16th, 2012. That application was
refused by Judge Morgan after a hearing held in the Quesnel court
house on November
18th.

Since that date I've been back in court a few more times on related matters
the most recent being Tuesday, January 14th.

During the November 18th, 2013 *Rowbotham* hearing Judge Morgan brought up
the matter of the particularization of the disclosure (the massive amount
of purported "evidence" which the Crown intends to rely upon to justify
their having charged and arrested me and stole all of my computers and
firearms back in May of 2012). I had made an application to the court back
on April 10th of 2013 asking for further particulars and that the Crown to
be more specific as to just what articles, posts, etc. were the ones on the
website which Regina felt were willfully promoting hatred against "people
of the Jewish religion or ethnic group." After the *Rowbotham* application
was refused I refiled the original April 10th, 2013 application asking the
Judge to order Crown to further particularize the case.

That hearing took place on December 16th, 2013. Judge Morgan reserved his
decision until I appeared again January 3rd, 2014 on another related
matter. It was then that he handed down his Judgment in which he dismissed
my application on the grounds that I was "seeking" "particulars relating to
the Crown's theory." In the Judge's estimation, "An order - as set out in
his application - for the Crown to *particularize the date and time and the
exact statement or statements by which the alleged hatred was promoted* would
have the effect of limiting the Crown's theory of the case; something that
Krindle J. in *Pangman* (above) at paragraph 3, found there was no
authority for and would amount to an extension of the existing law." It
all sounds good in "theory" doesn't it?

Following the November 18th, 2013 *Rowbotham* hearing I contacted Crown
Counsel Johnston regarding the matter of witnesses that the Crown was
planning to call for the Preliminary Inquiry set for January 22nd, 2014.
Counsel informed me that she would only be calling one witness, Barry Salt,
a forensic computer technician. More taxpayer money to be spent bringing
someone up to Quesnel in order to "prove" that I was the Publisher and
Editor of RadicalPress.com a fact which I have never denied.

On December 2nd, 2013 I wrote another letter to CC Johnston regarding the
matter of witnesses (or lack thereof) and that Crown was not planning to
call either of the complainants (Richard Warman and Harry Abrams) nor the
investigating officers (Terry Wilson and Normandie Levas). In that letter I
wrote:
*As I'm sure you are well aware the preliminary inquiry is an important
opportunity for me to cross-examine witnesses and gather relevant evidence
for pre-trial Charter applications in Supreme Court. Much of the necessary
evidence for the Charter applications will be put on the record at that
time and therefore I feel it behooves the Crown, in the interest of
justice, to call those persons specified above for cross-examination by
myself, or, in the event I am able to procure counsel in advance of the
January 22nd date, my legal representative.*

I never heard back from CC Johnston on this matter and so I filed another
application on December 30th, 2013 stating the reasons as:

"The complainants (Richard Warman and Harry Abrams) and the police
investigators (Terry Wilson and Normandie Levas) are relevant and necessary
witnesses for the purpose of the preliminary inquiry. The Crown is refusing
to to call these witnesses. I respectfully request that the Crown be
compelled to produce these witnesses."

As a result a hearing date was set for January 3rd, 2014. During the
hearing Crown argued that they didn't have to produce any witnesses that
they chose not to and downplayed the whole notion of the importance of the
Preliminary Hearing process. I was given a fourteen page document indexed
as: *United States of America v. Shephard* [1977] 2 S.C.R. 1067. *This
document, according to both Judge Morgan and Crown Counsel Johnston,
clearing showed that the threshold to be met in order to justify ordering a
trial to be held was so low as to be practically impossible to refute. *

Prior to the January 3rd date the Judge had set another date of January
7th, 2014 for what is called a "focus hearing" which, translated into
English, means a time to go over the ins and outs of what would be
transpiring during the upcoming Preliminary Hearing on Jan. 22nd. He then
decided to deal with that matter too on the 3rd and skip the Jan. 7th date.
It was during this hearing that Judge Morgan addressed the issue of the
thousands of emails which were still on my stolen computers and had not
been returned to me. I told the judge that they were relevant to my defence
and that they should be returned as part of the disclosure package which
had already been returned some months ago. The judge concurred with my
argument and after some discussion with Crown directed CC Johnston to
contact Det. Cst. Wilson and have him return all of my email correspondence
to me. He gave the Crown until January 14th to prepare a response to his
recommendation and it was on that date that I was to return to court to
find out the results. When I appeared on January 14th I learned that the
emails had been downloaded to a file that was supposedly being sent up to
the Crown's office and that I would be notified as soon as it arrived.
Judge Morgan told me to contact Crown Counsel's office if I didn't hear
anything after a couple of days.



It was also on Jan. 14th that I first learned that Crown was also calling
Det. Cst. Terry Wilson of the BC Hate Crime Unit to appear at the
Preliminary Inquiry. Then, to top things off, came the sudden announcement
by Crown Counsel Johnston that *the Crown* *had filed a third count against
me! *It was a repeat of the original May 16th, 2012 sec. 319(2) CCC
charge. This
new indictment, known as "Count 3", had received the consent of the
Attorney General of British Columbia on the 31st of December, 2013 and was
signed by Peter A. Juk, QC Acting Assistant Deputy Attorney General. The
reasons stated were that I,* "Roy Arthur Topham, between the 29th of
January, 2013 and the 11th day of December, 2013, inclusive, at or near
Quesnel, in the Province of British Columbia, did by communicating
statements, other than in private conversation, **willfully promoting **hatred
against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic
origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code." *

Having made this announcement to Judge Morgan and myself CC Johnston then
added that nothing more would be forthcoming as a result of it until after
the upcoming Preliminary Inquiry when an application would then be made to
the court in order that Crown might attempt to impose new restrictions on
me to prevent me from publishing any more truthful articles and opinions on
RadicalPress.com.

One further thing needs to be added to this update prior to closing off.
This morning, January 16th, 2014 I sent a letter to Crown Counsel Johnston
informing her that I had subpoenaed two witnesses to appear in my defence
for the Preliminary Inquiry slated for January 22nd, 2013. In that letter
I wrote:

"Please take notice that I have subpoenaed and will be calling two
witnesses for the Preliminary Inquiry to be held on *January 22nd, 2014*.

Mr. Frank Frost will be appearing to testify on the urgency to maintain an
alternative news media here in British Columbia in order to ensure that
criminal activities on the part of the RCMP, the Judiciary and the Attorney
General's office (Crown) are exposed to the general public. Mr. Frost is a
strong, knowledgeable advocate and expert witness in the areas of children
and family advocacy and pedophilia within B.C.'s judiciary.

Mr. Lonny Landrud will also be appearing to testify on the importance of
maintaining an alternative new media. Mr. Landrud is an expert,
knowledgeable witness in the area of judicial misfeasance as it pertains to
his own case. Mr. Landrud was witness to a murder of a young woman in
Quesnel by RCMP officers and subsequent to reporting this heinous crime to
the RCMP has been the subject of numerous attempts on his life by the RCMP.
In one instance Mr. Landrud was forced to shoot, in self-defence, an RCMP
officer who was attempting to murder him in his home. Since the advent of
these events Mr. Landrud has been unable to have his case investigated at
any level of government after years of sincere effort and the mainstream
news media has refused to investigate or cover his plight. Mr. Landrud will
be speaking to the court on the pressing need for an alternative news media
that will and does cover his untold story."

The next few days will be spent preparing for the Preliminary Inquiry. I
will send out another update sometime after the 22nd and let readers know
what transpired on that day.

For Peace, Freedom of Speech and Justice for All,

Arthur Topham
