I don't get this discussion.Think would be a plan just to FOI them anyway and see what they say. If they reject with that reason then you know at least.
Maybe also at same time FOI council - try and work out what kind of information LEMB fed up to council (if any).
How about getting those People's Audit people on the case then?LEMB would be accountable under the Freedom of information act as they are a public body.
If not then Lambeth Council would be. depends on what information your asking for and if its available.
what information would you ask for?
A list of all creditors paid over the past 8 years?
Thanks local guy. Appreciate it.Hi,
the jury may return a verdict (Guilty / Not Guilty) at any time. They are sitting in the backroom of the courtroom. Normal working hours are (not before) 10 am and (not later than) 4.30 - 5 pm.
When the jury has agreed on a verdict, they knock the door and let the usher know about it. All parties are then called to the courtroom, what is announced via loudspeakers fitted along the corridors : "All parties in Adedotun please come to the courtroom 3". Therefore the parties i.e. defendants, defence team, prosecutors must be in /around the building (the court) all the time. When all are present (including the judge !) the usher asks the foreman who is a member of the jury, to stand up and answer only "yes" or "no" to the questions of unanimity /majority of the decision and, further, "on count 1 do you find the defendant guilty or not guilty?" , "on count 2 do you find...".
If the defendant is found to be guilty, the sentence will be decided some times later (up to few weeks), taking into account the aggravating and mitigating circumstances of the case.
If the defendant is found not guilty, he / she is free to go.
Agree with BusLanes its worth doing anyway to see.Crikey! They receive money from Lambeth. I would have thought a FOI would apply.
Considering it's inexperienced residents who run the estate for residents and Lambeth Council I would have thought that on the whole generally residents would be kept more informed about how all the money they receive is spent and not just the very few who attend the Board meetings but earlier posts touched on this already.
Wow not a bad weekly rate!Peter and the board do not get paid ROFL
At the most recent AGM 2018/19 they awarded Peter as LEMB chair £10,000 per annum automatically as expenses and all other board members £2,500 per annum to reflect how much hard work and responsibility they have, ‘I’m not sure about what they do’.
Apparently there is now a HUGE internal fight for who wants to be the next volunteer LEMB Chair.
The trial of those accused of the murder of Glendon Spence, which was witnessed by a number of children has now commenced at the Central Criminal Court:Thank you for sharing your detailed eye witness account of the public meeting on 21 March 2019.

Violent Crime Public Meeting @ Loughborough Community Centre
An interview with Ira Campbell, Managing Director, Marcus Lipton Community Centre, was published yesterday and raises urgent issues that go beyond Loughborough Junction:
A Fatal Stabbing Took Place At This Man's Youth Club - Now He Speaks Out
17-year old Rishon Florant, of Waltham Forest, and 18-year-old Chibuzo Ukonu, of Loughton, Essex, have today been found guilty of killing Glendon Spence, who, together with friends, had sought refuge at the Marcus Lipton Youth Centre in Brixton, south London, when the two hooded teenagers arrived armed with large knives arrived at the Marcus Lipton Youth Club and ran at them.The trial of those accused of the murder of Glendon Spence, which was witnessed by a number of children has now commenced at the Central Criminal Court:
Glendon Spence death: Attack at Brixton youth centre was 'merciless'
Not really if they want to avoid a criminal record and it looks good "It wasn't me" Look I paid it all back.Regarding the LEMB trial, I have found it difficult to obtain information, but this paragraph is quite interesting:
"Lawyers defending Mr Shorinwa and Ms Adedotun argued that they believed the £56,000 payment – which was later repaid – had been legitimate and described a “David and Goliath battle” between LEMB and Lambeth Council."
If it is true that the £56,000 had been repaid, isn't it a bit odd to prosecute?
I don't know much about the law, but isn't it unusual for people committing fraud to make restitution voluntarily?
I wonder if the EMB board paid back their £2,500 expenses payments?
This post is obscure to say the least. Is Peter exercising the healing touch here.Not really if they want to avoid a criminal record and it looks good "It wasn't me" Look I paid it all back.
I suppose in the end if you believe you have a right to it, why indeed would you give it back.
I've recently seen Peter Shorinwa hobbling around on his crutch looking a lot older, a former shadow of his youthful self, but I suppose he will be cured soon by using that £10,000 of residents money.
