You may say the statement quoted indicates a breach of the Public Interest Disclosure Act and ask: How can there be along drawn-out legal case following? - The tricks remain: Trying to discredit the whistleblower 'for other reasons', find tricks in the barrister's tool box - mmh, an honest person would have doubts about using... and away you go. Throw into the mix that the individual ends up being unrepresented and the Judge does not investigate the facts or the policies in place. And before you know it - the years go by.
email to the BBC (feedback and All In The Mind): ... just before I switched off the radio this am to avoid getting royally annoyed, I heard a royal correspondent (ca 845 on R4) speak (sort of complimentary) of Prince Harry having been mentally ill and seeking treatment.
I can't comment about any condition PH may or may not have suffered from, but in any case I find the language offensive (not only on his behalf). As far as I am aware he had to get over a psychological trauma. Period. As do many.
And: I am pretty sure the treatment he sought was not compulsory medication while being locked up in a NHS psychiatry ward as it would happen to people without funds and connections if they went off the rails. So it might be worth

At one point (the patient) threw herself down a flight of stairs. This was seen (sic) by some as due to the fact that (the father) was kissing her more in a boyfriend-girlfriend kind of manner. The allegation was put to him but denied and the Social Worker did not take it any further.” b) After I had indicated that this information would have to be part of the Safeguarding Meeting, the I was told, indicating a clear breach of the Public Interest Disclosure Act – PIDA -): “If you disclose (any of this) - there will be a Management Response.”
