Diary From the Inside 1 – 30 September 2021 Part 173 by Giovanni Di Stefano

Wednesday 1 September 2021

16.03 – Today something extra good (and nice) happened to me which was a rich slap in the face to the UK Government. That gives me no pleasure because I have spent 8 ½ years away from my family – but it has created the legend!!!

Thursday 2 September 2021

18.20 – Saw both SJ and DMS today and tomorrow will meet important Italian lawyer from Milan. More clarity by weekend!!

Friday 3 September 2021

18.02 – Not really sure how today went – probably OK, but we will see. what I am really getting tired of though, is people promising me they will do something then either don’t or not keep to the time they said. It is a common thread in today’s world but not for me though. I deplore it, and all those that did that to me when I get out – and out I will get at some stage – will not be part of my life. They will all come up with some children’s shite excuses, but it won’t wash with me.

Saturday 4 September 2021

18.13 – I remembered today (why I don’t know) the Zong Massacre where a British captain in 1781 threw 133 slaves overboard as they had run out of drinking water. why has no one ever sought compensation for such? Well, it seems that claims and apologies must be made even 300 years old+??? the ship was paid insurance so that ought to be returned and in fact, the captain (even though he is long dead) should be indicted!!  Well, why not the British paint what stands still an in tights anything that moves so why not???

Sunday 5 September 2021

18.34 – What can be said about today?? Eff all!!! It is no different than the last 3088 days unlawfully detained for political motivation.

Monday 6 September 2021

17.15 – Two things today (i) it is the 14th birthday of one of my grandsons (my daughter’s lovely boy) Happy Birthday and (ii) the date for my Habeas Corpus is set for the 9th September 2021. What are my thoughts? Nil! What do I expect? Eff all because the UK Courts or intellectually dishonest. I have said it before, and I say it again without any hesitation.

Tuesday 7 September 2021

17.23 – Caroline has done an absolute Wizard of a job on the ‘Hidden Secret’ series. I mean she is the only one who got the map of India correct. Wow! Today I saw all my lawyers and we have a plan. don’t hold your breath on Thursday but the other hearing may well be a hit.

Wednesday 8 September 2021

17.04 – I am watching a box it called succession (Caroline add a poster here) and boy I do feel it could have been made just for me. the costing is doubtful and could have been better but generally good storyline a little bit based upon Rupert Murdoch or did I say me!

Thursday 9 September

17.46 – Today the British government sent to the High Court a barrage of lawyers trying to prevent my release. I should be honoured because the government give me a lot of credit and are truly fearful of me. Wow! What is it I know, or the government think I know, that I should not know, or tell someone??? I don’t know what the government think I know that I should not know! know what I mean???

Friday 10 September 2021

17.34 – The ‘team’ are all now motivated anew and ready for legal combat.

Saturday 11 September 2021

19.25 – All I can say is that today is a relaxing day. I know what must be done – should have been done months ago but did not have the support – let’s see if I have it for real now.

Sunday 12 September 2021

16.12 – Not much longer now for the launch of our new service which will reflect the direction of the future. today another day of downtime……

Monday 13 September 2021

17.46 – Do you know how I feel like today? I am so effing tired of everyone not having any sense of urgency in my case – well this is how I feel: – like effing Thomas de Mahy, marquis de Favras, who’s last words before execution were “I see you have made three spelling mistakes upon my warrant of execution…”

Tuesday 14 September 2021

17.18 – Quite a stress of a day but it’s only to be expected. everyone has a reason why they don’t do things they say they will do but eff it c´est la vie.

Wednesday 15 September 2021

17.10 – Possibly a day to forget. (i) can’t get hold of my mother as phone lines in Italy where she lives are down (ii) by administrative error I nearly ended up elsewhere today (iii) my youngest son tested positive for COVID. Need I say more???

Thursday 16 September 2021

17.34 – Seems to me that everybody has their own agenda and I’m just left stuck here now 3098 days. But it’s OK because at some stage I get my life back.

Friday 17 September 2021

17.29 – Generally a good day because I am planning my own cabinet re-shuffle and will be getting back some control of my own life back. It was time. it won’t be easy and to those who it will affect they might not like it, but as we say in Baghdad – unlucky!!!

Saturday 18 September 2021

18.21 – Frankly a shite day. new televisions are working as last night there was a power cut, and it knocked the TV signal so until Tuesday – yes a Tuesday (at the earliest) no TV so no “Strictly” tonight (damn it) oh “Vigil” tomorrow – Grrrrr!!!!

Sunday 19 September 2021

18.34 – Not one of my what I call “better weekends” but as everyone has their own agendas then I may as well plan mine which is what I have spent my weekend doing – planning on the results will become evident later in the year whether I am in prison or not.

Monday 20 September 2021

19.04 – I don’t know how much longer I can really continue this diary. There really is not much point at all is there? The content is boring and will probably never come to light anyway.

Tuesday 21 September 2021

19.12 – The more I think about it, the more I wonder if this diary serves any further purpose save that on 27th of March 2013, when I came to prison, I made a pact that I would write something each day to testify how I felt. Let me give this some thought.

Wednesday 22 September 2021

19.18 – It does seem to me that as far as some people are concerned, I have become a “help when you can but nothing more productive is available,” type of case. That type of conduct is alien to me. I always put the client first above all, and I am proud of that big time. But those whom I helped just simply take the Pontius Pilate way – wash their hands off me, but when I am out, they will come up with the most incredible stories as to why they wanted to help but could not. It won’t stand!!!

Thursday 23 September 2021

19.22 – The Curse of the Raven and Owl is now upon all those who obfuscate justice.

Friday 24 September 2021

21.13 – Too tired to write anything tonight. I now have proof of the prosecution against me, was political and personal.

Saturday 25 September 2021

16.10 – Things won’t be so easy for me when (if) I am released. there is an old saying that “gold protect me from my friend as my enemies I can deal with.”


Sunday 26 September 2021

19.03 – Nothing to report other than I am well prepared for what is to come.

Monday 27 September 2021

18.45 – Nothing to report other than nothing is really working, and each person has one excuse after another. I may just reach the point where I float and await next year. Tragic if I do but maybe that is what I must do.

Tuesday 28 September 2021

18.32 – Another day and some not so good, weather which makes life glum.

20.31 – What a scandal is being caused around my situation. my son will be doing a podcast with all the details but shame on this country and all its “dark shadowy forces” not come out to attack me and a selected list of other citizens. But I am not over just yet!!!

Wednesday 29 September 2021

18.19 – It is my intention very soon after third October 2021 to simply take all my legal papers and shred them. The position is simply unbelievable!!!

Thursday 30 September 2021

18.01 – Nothing really to say for now as everything that could be said has in fact been said.
