PUBLISHER | THIS PAGE: From British Courts

All news reports linked to from this page are intended as public interest only, and lean toward having strong relevance for scientists and politicians internationally. I am also working with this reporting to highlight, understand and seek publishing/editorial management insight of news reporting in the internet age. The internet both solves old news reporting problems, and creates new ones. I also declare a bias, which is that when a human being dies I think all mention of any criminal activity by that human being should be struck from all official records. Unless there is a strong likelihood of posthumous pardon at some time in the future.
