The state may ' claim ' they are summary offences , but that still does not give them lawful excuse to prevent a human from exercising his common law right to have the matter decided by a jury of their peers. If they deny anyone their common law right to trial by jury, in that process they are violating a human beings right, under Human rights act.
So if one writes to the Prosecutor, and states that ' subject to Human Rights Act 1998, sec 11. Safeguard for existing human rights. . A person’s reliance on a Convention right does not restrict—
(a)any other right or freedom conferred on him by or under any law having effect in any part of the United Kingdom' , I would like to exercise my common law right , as protected for me under human rights legislation , to have a trial by jury, in order to reach a decision in these criminal allegations.
Then let the prosecutor , or court, come back with a response. If they violate human rights, that's about 4 grand ?
Common Law rights are protected for ' Human Beings '. What a CORPORATION , or it's officers , employee's, may wish , is irrelevant .
We have common law rights, statutory rights, international rights. The choice of defence at law is for the individual to choose, not the state to pigeon hole sheep, happily stamping their forms.
So why not send an affidavit off to the prosecutor at the same time. You gonna try and claim a court doesn't do affidavits in these matters because it's summary offences ?
Happy Holidays !
