Love letters straight from your heart...keep us so near while apart...

With all due respect and apologies to The King...
Ever ready to challenge the referee’s decision and true to his contrary, pain in the arse nature, @ndy slackbastard goes that one step further this time and even abuses the others in his own supporter ‘firm’ who tell him he’s wrong and to shut the fuck up and sit down!

Jock Palfreeman : January 2010 Update

1 Comment Published by @ndy January 26th, 2010 in Anti-fascism, State / Politics

I’ve been meaning to post a little moar (sic) about Jock for some weeks now, but yesterday I got a letter from him — oddly enough, only hours after I sent Jock a postcard — so I thought I might post a brief update.

WTF? Has @ndy Moron done his ‘nads over this murderer? Are we to expect a prison marriage next? @ndy and Jock tie the knot! in Sofia?

For those of you coming in late, Paul ‘Jock’ Palfreeman is a 23-year-old Australian currently serving a 20-year sentence in Sofia Central Prison (Bulgaria) for murder and attempted murder. To be precise, on December 2, 2009, Jock was found guilty of premeditated murder and attempted murder with antisocial (hooligan) intent; in addition to imprisonment, Jock received a 450,000 leva (375,000 AUD) fine. Jock is also liable for 18,000 leva in court fees, and the 450,000 leva fine is also subject to tax (13,000 leva) and interest of 6–8% per annum (dating from December 2007).

Jock has always maintained that he acted in self-defence, after coming to the aid of two Roma men who he witnessed being beaten by a gang of fascist football hooligans on the streets of Sofia — more details regarding his defence are available on the ‘Free Jock’ website, established by his friends and supporters.

Jock’s letter states that from early January he was placed in isolation, unable to receive or send mail or to make phone calls: the duration of his isolation is unknown.

Then, in typical shrill Leftist fashion, he throws in a Red Herring about an absolutely unrelated case with no similarities whatsoever apart from the implied ineptness/corruption of the Bulgarian authorities which is, of itself, a patronising and supercilious insult to the Bulgarian Legal system. Is @ndy, the Workers’ friend and tireless defender of Racial and Cultural equality, himself indulging in elitism and perpetuating the cruel cliché of the Post Soviet, Eastern European States being little more than brutally primitive autocracies peopled by corrupt bureaucrats and unsophisticated peasants? That’s not very uniting and rainbow-like of you, is it @ndy?

Of related interest to Jock’s case is the story of Michael Shields:

Brit wrongly jailed demands apology
The Age (AAP)
January 4, 2010

A British man jailed in Bulgaria for a crime he didn’t commit is demanding apologies from both governments.

Michael Shields, 23, of Wavertree, Liverpool, received a royal pardon four months ago following his wrongful conviction for the attempted murder of a Bulgarian waiter.

He was released in September 2009 after spending four-and-a-half years in prison…

His comments come shortly after the family of a 23-year-old Sydney man handed a 20-year prison sentence for murder in Bulgaria vowed to appeal the ruling.

A Sofia Court last month found Paul “Jock” Palfreeman guilty of the murder of 20-year-old Bulgarian law student Andrei Monov and severely wounding Antoan Zahariev, 19, in a fight in Sofia on December 28, 2007.

Palfreeman, who has been in custody since the incident, pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and attempted murder, claiming self-defence.

He told the court he had run to help a man who was being beaten by a group of drunken football fans.

In Europe, there has been some small smattering of publicity regarding Jock’s case, and below are links to all the references among anti-fascist groups that I can find.

The truly bewildering thing, apart from the theory of @ndy suffering from ‘Notorious Person Fascination Syndrome’, is why he just simply, apparently, refuses to accept that this Jock character is just another nasty piece of murderous filth. It speaks volumes that the local Bulgarian Anarchists have disowned him and refuse to support him in any way. They would be privy to much more real, on the street knowledge about the incident and its related social/cultural context than @ndy could ever glean from exchanging prison love letters with this stone cold murderer.

The Czechoslovak Anarchist Federation (CSAF) has a post on Jock’s case, promoting ‘One night in Sofia’, the highly-recommended half-hour documentary on Jock’s case produced by the ABC last year.

“Highly recommended”, by whom precisely?

(Note that the CSAF is a member of the International of Anarchist Federations (IAF-IFA), the Bulgarian member of which, the Federation of Anarchists of Bulgaria (FAB), has denounced Jock, as well as all attempts to act in solidarity with him.) Reference to Jock is also made in another Czech language blog — Monitoring všeho možného — here.

In December, the Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) in Berlin reported that Jock Palfreeman in Bulgarien zu 20 Jahren verurteilt. The post appears to be a German translation of a post at the Bristol ABC blog, a version of which also appears on the Denver (USA) ABC blog. Another post concerning Jock — Bułgaria: Australijczyk skazany za obronę własną w walce z rasistami — appears on a Polish-language blog. Finally, AntiFascist Network is carrying a banner linking to the FreeJock site.


On the front page of the ‘FreeJock’ website is this simple statement followed by the obligatory whining and hand wringing about it all being so unjust etc. Boohoo!

“On Wednesday, 2nd December 2009, Jock was found guilty of premeditated murder and attempted murder with antisocial (hooligan) intent. He was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment, and a 450,000 leva (375,000 AUD) fine.”

Well, I don’t know about you, but that combined with the plain facts that this vile creature had ‘form’ for carrying and threatening with sharp, edged instruments and that he was a self proclaimed ‘Anti-Racist’ crusader AND even the local Bulgarian Anarchists have hung his sad arse out to dry tells me he is currently lucky to get away with such a lenient sentence.

May he rot in Hell.

QLD ed note.

@ndy has said

"Jock’s letter states that from early January he was placed in isolation, unable to receive or send mail or to make phone calls: the duration of his isolation is unknown."

So how did @ndy get this so called letter? I think someone is telling porky pies.
