Contacting the Independent Press Complaints Commission

I researched and reported two crimes of Treason at my local police station; references PNNNNNNN and PNNNNNNNN.

today i was shocked to receive a letter from Spelthorne Mental Health Community Team "inviting" me to a "mental health assessment".

to be absolutely honest scared shitless of the implications and extremely angered by what are effectively accusations by Police Officers that i am "mentally unwell", and of the implied breakdown of trust by those Police Officers passing on my name and address without my consent.

i reported these crimes in good faith.

if i had known that i would be "accused of being mentally unwell" then do you _seriously_ think that i would have reported the crimes? what are the implications there: do you think that people will report serious crimes if they are at risk from being "locked away as mentally ill"?

i am now extremely concerned for my safety, as a direct consequence of the actions taken by Police Officers. god knows what these idiot Social Workers are going to do, now. my partner marie is here on a 2-year Visa, and we have a 14 month old daughter. is the Home Office going to have access to this information through the NHS "Spine", without my consent, and "refuse to issue a new visa" when we come to renew it? if Marie is deported, will I ever see my daughter again?

so you can see - the decision by the Police Officers to pursue "mental health allegations and accusations" against me has serious, serious implications and consequences.

one thought occurred to me which should shock you into investigating and taking this seriously: there is an incredible similarity between what is being done to me and what Stalin used to do to his "political enemies". whilst Stalin himself was sufficiently mentally ill to "invent" enemies and get people executed (which is not going to happen in 21st Century England), many intelligent people in Russia in the 50s were simply too afraid to talk openly, for fear of accusations of "being mentally ill".

my only form of defense against this kind of attack is to make everything that i say public. that includes this report, and it includes contacting newspapers.

Thank you, your complaint has been received by the IPCC and will be allocated to a Casework Manager. We try to respond to complaints as soon as possible, however the allocation time does depend on the number of complaints received. In the meantime if you have any queries please contact us, quoting your reference number on : 08453 002 002 Kind regards IPCC
