The background to this case is the claim for the allodial title of the whole of Shetland and the surrounding seabed on behalf of the sovereign people of Shetland. (Allodial title is the ultimate title and is the nature of all land in Shetland). Allodial title is subject to no lord or superior and is above any title the bank may have purported to own). This claim was issued in November 2013 and was sent to The Prime Minister, The First Minister of Scotland and The Scottish Secretary. In the absence of substantive replies, Notices of Fault and Default were issued, which means that the claim is uncontested. The parties are now subject to estoppel or personal bar, preventing them denying the fact at a future date.
When the shop came up for auction I claimed the allodial title as an extension of the overall claim for Shetland. This claim was issued to Royal Bank of Scotland, Shetland Islands Council, The First Minister of Scotland, The Prime Minister, Police Scotland, Registers of Scotland and Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service.
Once again, in the absence of substantive replies, Notices of Fault and Default were issued. The parties are now subject to estoppel or personal bar, preventing them denying the fact at a future date.
A public notice was also run in The Shetland Times for three consecutive weeks.
When it came to court, the procurator fiscal can have been in no doubt that there was no case to answer. I cannot be charged with vandalising my own property. The matter of ownership is a strictly civil issue and outside the competence of a criminal court. No wonder he dropped the case.
This is the correspondence, starting with the original letter to the Prime Minister:
Then the specific claim for the shop, sent to anyone with the possibility of an interest, followed by Notices of Fault and Default in the absence of substantive replies. This one to the Prime Minister:
Here is the public notice:
Next hearing on 16 August.
