This is opinion only providing the basis to insist on prosecution of the guilty parties by the Crown Prosecutor. You need to do your own further research.
What are my rights as a victim in the criminal trial process?
Offences against Person. Criminal negligence.
If you are concerned for any reason about this matter concerning you as a recipient becoming public knowledge, you can ask the Crown Prosecutor, at the beginning of the preliminary inquiry or trial, to apply for an order to prohibit the media from publishing or broadcasting your name or any other information that might disclose your identity. It is up to the judge to decide whether the order is granted.
Details of your health history cannot be used at the trial to suggest that you should not be believed when you say that you were treated unlawfully with a product that was illegally administered to you and without your consent. If you go onto develop neurological symptoms, typical or atypical of CJD then you are entitled to compensation.
However, notes taken by yourself (diary entries), treating doctor or hospital centre particularly in regard to establishing treatment may be useful for the Prosecutor to prosecute the accused, if he can establish that these notes are likely to be relevant to the case. They will be relevant if the information you gave is different from the evidence given at court or there is any suggestion that you were influenced to make the accusation against the accused. The Department initially informed Margaret Bansemer that she was "off the program".
If the doctors or institutions have destroyed these notes, and it was found by the court that the notes were likely to be relevant, the case against the accused may be dropped (because he has not had an opportunity to fully defend his position). The fact that you are on the mailing list as having been identified as a recipient of an unlawful product is sufficient.
If you are concerned for any reason about this matter in regard to your personal circumstances becoming public knowledge you can ask the Crown Prosecutor, at the beginning of the preliminary inquiry or trial, to apply for an order to prohibit the media from publishing or broadcasting your name or any other information that might disclose your identity. It is up to the judge to decide whether the order is granted.
The trial may not take place for some time, often years, after the offence, so victim can make a videotape at any time disclosing the incident within a reasonable time after the offence. This video will be admissible as evidence at trial if it is consistent with the evidence given by the victim at trial. Again most recipients have been informed of their exposure to criminal negligence by being treated with an unlawful substance.
It is clear that from the evidence presented on this web page you are a Victim of Crime.
