In a free country there should be no secret courts and nobody should be kept in a so-called "care-home" against their will.
Wanda Maddocks was gaoled by a SECRET COURT for rescuing her own father from a council care home where he was unhappy and neglected.
John Maddocks, 80, had always said to his family ‘Don’t you ever put me in a care home’ and Wanda never forgot those words.
But in 2009 when he was suffering from dementia caused by Alzheimer's Disease, he was put into a local council care home in Stoke-on-Trent. He got depressed in there and told his three sons who lived nearby, and Wanda, who ran a property firm in Turkey, that he was being ignored and neglected. So in December 2010 Wanda and her brothers Ivan, 55, Wayne, 54, and Eden, 49, took him out of the council home and put him on a plane to Turkey so that she could look after him.
To their amazement, when they returned to the UK to sort out his finances, the local council forced him to return to the home. When Wanda Maddocks challenged the authority in 2012, she was the first person in Britain to be secretly jailed by the Court of Protection.
She served six weeks of a five-month sentence, locked up with killers and drug dealers in HMP Foston Hall, Derbyshire. Mr Maddocks died in hospital in January 2013.
Even though her father is now dead, she is still facing criminal charges. THIS IS TYRANNY.
