Impact  Statements

A Impact Statement is your opportunity as a victim of crime to tell others how YOU feel.

 

Sadly, in the UK, Courts and Police are ignoring State asset stripping via banks such as RBS, Lloyds Banking Group and others are happening, thus ignoring how these heinous thefts have affected you and your family: in your mental and physical health – and your finances.

suffer due to UK State failure. Civilians' are being attacked

Making a Victim (Impact) Statement
to be heard

A Victim (Impact) Statement is different to the other statements people do. It is also called a victim statement. This is your opportunity to tell the court and police how the crime has affected you:
 

  • in your health – mental (and physical)

  • in your finances – your money situation
     

A Victim (Impact) Statement is your choice and

your account of what impact the crime has had

on you. It may be easier to put your feelings

down on paper over a few days rather than on the spot.


What goes in a Victim (Impact) Statement

Victim (Impact) Statements should include details of how the State Crime has affected you. In particular where State operatives such as Police, Crime Commissioners, Ministers, Regulators and even Judges and court have affected you causing hurt and harm.

  • and your relationships, including
    if it 
    has led you to suffer:
     

  • mental (and any physical) injuries
     

  • changes to your mood, anxiety or
    confidence levels

     

  • damage to relationships
     

  • loss of your income, property or
    ability to earn

     

It is important for your statement to be accurate as you will likely to be asked about it.

When Victim (Impact) Statements are used

Your Victim (Impact) Statement will be given to the police/ court/ State Officials who should show support against State atrocities. SO15 and the ICC, Hague:
 

Your Victim (Impact) Statement will not normally be disclosed to the defence. However, if the statement contains material information, e.g. information that strengthens the defence case, information that weakens the prosecution case or information that will be led during a trial, then that information will need to be disclosed to the defence.
