19.20 – Well tomorrow is the big day for the podcast Swindler, Savior, Mobster, Spy.
Tuesday 24 May 2022
17.22 – I don’t know what is included in this podcast, I will have no access for now but, for the record: there was never any mal-intent, a life less ordinary just got in the way & my family absorbed the consequences of my work, path, and ambitions from nothing!
Wednesday 25 May 2022
19.22 – Well, seems to me everybody is profiting out of my ‘so-called’ story of my life. Sky has now sold the documentary they broadcasted about me to MSNBC in America. What frustrates me is: if I was allowed out to work on the production of the real story about me, I would have been able to pay back all the victims well before now!!!! But oh no…let all the major companies profit from my so-called story, who are worth no doubt millions – and keep me in here so as the victims suffer…just like me!!!!
Thursday 26 May 2022
20.22 – Justice has gone to pot in the UK – the aliens must be looking down on us having a good laugh!!!
Friday 27 May 2022
18.00 – Put in an application for some of the hierarchies in the government to be called as witnesses in my claim against the Secretary of State for Justice.
Saturday 28 May 2022
15.31 – Another nice walk today trying to forget all this nonsense that is going on around me.
Sunday 29 May 2022
18.29 – I need to apologise to all those who read my diary the last ten years. I made a promise that I would write my diary each day. I have breached that promise and what is worse than breaching a promise to other is breaching it to oneself. So, I know that Caroline had covered the last few weeks, but I must now make amends. So back we go, and I will do my best without too many excuses to just get on with it which is what I must do. Now I heard today that the jockey Lester Piggott has died aged 86. He went to jail in 1987 for tax fraud. I can now tell his secret because I did know him for a while between 1989 and 1991. It goes like this – he did a deal with the special investigators to repay I think it was £3 million in tax and disclosed all his assets. And he paid! So, you will say well how come he went to jail when he did a deal? Good question. Here is what few knew… he paid the backlog in tax by cheque as was the custom then. Only the cheque was drawn on a bank that he had not disclosed!!!! Need I say more? But he did his time, got parole, and went back being the favorite jockey of the Queen!
Monday 30 May 2022
07.10 – Somewhat of a difficult day but we must move forward. Today I issued a claim against a TV production company for using my image without paying. No one can stop anyone using your image, but they must pay for it. Mixed reviews on the podcast. My own view is that I have my own agenda so as Rhett Butler said, “Frankly I don’t give a damn.” This week will be a short week as it is the Queens Jubilee – 70 years on the Throne. I wish her well always as the Queen is a truly wonderful lady with much dignity. But as a constitutional Monarchy the Queen cannot even suggest legislation and cannot (unfortunately) dismiss the Government. What a pity because this Government truly has not behaved correctly and is on the verge of being rogue.
Tuesday 31 May 2022
16.55 – It seems that I live in a totally crazy world. Work this out if you can – in the last year I have been given by the Government almost £50,000 to pay of the issue of five claims I have against the government (yes, the Government) of £50,000. So, the Government pay for me to sue them but keep me in jail unlawfully. In a way it shows that there is access to justice. Unbelievable!!!
Thursday 2 June 2022
08.30 – Can someone please put a bet of £5 for me for Ukraine to win the World Cup. Well, the world is allowing them to win everything else for the totally wrong reasons so why not just give them the world cup and let’s not even bother having a competition. Everyone is complaining about Qatar anyway except me who is well know to the Al Thani family (the Emir). I don’t agree with the attack on Ukraine, but I also don’t agree of politics interfering in sport, music, art, etc. Please someone put £5 on Ukraine winning the World Cup please.
Friday 3 June 2022
14.01 – Another day another 24 hours of totally futile boredom but – yes, a big but – I am fighting back and next week will be the next legal target which will hit without notice and all paid for by – yes- the Government!!!
Saturday 4 June 2022
16.10 – Read a story in the Daily Mail about a doctor who wrote a note to his wife saying, “Going out for a walk” and has not been seen in the last 11 years devastating for his wife and three children and he has been declared legally dead after 7 years of no show. Who does that kind of thing? Incredible story. One Monday of holiday then back to some form of normality.
Sunday 5 June 2022
17.20 – Finally the Jubilee Bank Holiday is over, and tomorrow is yet another day of being a bit payer in this human car park of lost souls. I do, however, carry a hope that someday the justice system will be fixed it will never be perfect because we all carry the sin of Adam and Eve, but it will be at least better. My situation will never be resolved because it falls as part of the legend of GDS!!!
Monday 6 June 2022
18.23 – Now I am going to say something quite controversial – Peter Sutcliffe the Yorkshire Ripper – should not have been convicted of murder and should have received a hospital order instead of life sentence. Why? I will tell you – the trial Judge Mr Justice Boreham wrongly directed himself when hearing evidence, the Judge said the Doctors came to that conclusion only on his own evidence and sent him for trial. At trial there was a majority verdict of 10 – 2 in favour of murder which means there was real doubt. That is my view, and this matter is truly one for review. Yes…he killed 13 women and that alone says the perpetrator must be insane! My advice would be an appeal but of course that cannot be because he is dead – poetical justice. However, the Criminal Appeal Act 1968 does allow any ‘relative or next of kin’ to launch an appeal if they think it worthwhile. Academic exercise but important so it does not happen again that a Judge wrongly directs himself on this matter.
Tuesday 6 June 2022
19.05 – This whole situation is really pissing me off. Everyone knows what has happened to me and the Government are now using the media to ‘big up’ what I am supposed to have done to justify their actions and absurd sentence. But it could be worse, I could be caught up in the Ukraine-Russia conflict or starving to death in some sort of the refugee camps in the Middle East. Instead, for the past 9 years 3 months I have not received a gas or electric bill and paid no council tax or income tax. So, at the end of the day I need to balance things out. What is good is that no one can stop time and that keeps ticking. The tik tock, tik tock!!
Wednesday 8 June 2022
19.10 – Well today I went to Henley-on-Thames hospital for my surgery of skin cancer. Yes, I was quite afraid but the officers who came with me were brilliant and really helped me because as you guessed I am afraid of needles and people with white coats. The three surgeons were women and so kind. Explaining everything to me step by step. Yes, the anesthetic was a bit painful but when it took effect did not feel a thing, now I have a bandage on my nose and a million people asking me “what happened to your nose Gio?” Everyone is kind to me and comforting. Thank you all, I say.
Thursday 9 June 2022
17.30 – My two sets of bed sheets, bed mattress cover and pillowcase are now 9 years old. I was given them new in 2013 at Wandsworth, by and Italian being extradited to Italy. He gave them to me already in sealed packs and they have been my companions in 56 different prisons – OK they are a bit worn (so am I but they have survived nearly 500 washes in different washing machines. For the memory they will come with me to Italy. Many a time they have given me the company I have lacked the last 9 years plus, because they were gifted to me by a good person. I don’t have many items from 2013 and before, and those I do I treasure as they are my link to justice.
Friday 10 June 2022
17.45 – Today I took off the plaster that has covered my nose for two days and, lo and behold – wow! What a great job the surgeon has done. I feel so much better, and a great weight has been taken off my mind, that surgery is now done, finally! I have to admit I was scared as hell, but it’s done now. On another front the first legal challenge to the asylum flights to Rwanda. Result? Those who applied lost. Why? Because it’s the effing law – you see the law worry for the establishment but not for those like me…. for now, but I won’t surrender.
Saturday 11 June 2022
14.10 – Dr Leon Antonio of University Hospital Leuven has conducted medical research that men who have morning erections will live many years longer and Dr Geoff Hackett of the British Society for Sexual medicine (when was that formed??) agrees! It is in the sun today page 18. So, what does it mean for me? You guess but see you in 2055…more alarming on page 28 of the Sun “Government must prepare for Nuke disaster!!!” Do you know what to do if there is a nuclear attack on this country? Even if I were not in this place I don’t know and I bet neither do anyone reading this, but the Government must make public plans. I have heard bomb sirens in three different countries and trust me it is frightening. My father heard the bells ringing in 1941 onwards in Italy during the war and he was scared. Belgrade was really frightening but somehow, I and millions of others got through it.
Sunday 12 June 2022
14.20 – Blow me down with a feather the skin cancer I have called ‘squamous carcinoma’ is actually quite deadly if not caught and treated on time. It can spread and 2,100 people die per year, a result with only 28,000 people catching it. So, 10% die. There is a new drug called ‘Cemiplimab’, but I bet I won’t be allowed it. I have asked. As I have said growing old is not for cowards, but I guess I am no brave heart either. I hope this operation has worked. I’m actually quite scared.
Monday 13 June 2022
17.25 – Well finally Lord Justice Adrian Fulford has disgraced himself in his ‘decision’ on my case. You see in the UK once a Judge makes a mistake the are never honest enough to apologise and rectify the error. No! They dig their heels in and go on to make more mistakes. However, what they do not realise is that they leave a paper trail which later will be used to justify the headlines: “Enemies of Justice.” So, I will be writing my personal statement and put it out to the media. I know I have the government against me and the judiciary, but I will succeed. Yes, I know no one can give me back 10 years but my victory using justice will indeed be an asset and example as to how things should be done and hopefully rid ourselves of dishonest judges. That will take time and I won’t be in this world to witness it but those who come after me surely will. Progress in Justice does not come easy, and the inheritor of a good legal system will one day thank me and those like me!!
Tuesday 14 June 2022
18.19 – getting more and more tired, and I am noticing that my skin cancer is now somewhat spreading. So of course, I am worried. I don’t want to be in the 2,800 people who die each year as a result of this. I hope the doctor prescribes me this new drug, but somehow, I think they will wriggle out of it, saying: “it’s not available on the NH S etcetera, etcetera.” Let’s see though. The judges on the government are in. You. Unison. Unison against me. But I will come through this. Remember what Saint Thomas Acquaint said.: “All war is justified. If the ultimate aim is peace.” All I ever wanted was some peaceful enjoyment of the few years I have left.
Wednesday 15 June 2022
18.30 – Raven and Owl has struck – Last night, England lost 4 – 0 to Hungry, at home.!!! The worst loss since 1926.! So, this is destiny and justice catching up with a country that has no respect for not only international law but its own law. “Saint Destiny catch up” always finds those who behave contrary to law and humanity. Roll on post 28 June 2022, but I won’t hold my breath.
Thursday 16 June 2022
19.34 – If there are any lawyers that have clients that have Prison Related Stress Disorder, please make contact as I want to start a Group Litigation Order Case i.e., Class Action.
Friday 17 June 2022
114.14 – Home Secretary’s decision to extradite Assange is the right decision legally, the wrong decision morally, stupid decision politically.
Saturday 18 June 2022
19.10 – Has gone from 34 degrees to 18 degrees and some rain. Weekends are always slow. Next week will be interesting. Let’s see if this government can be trusted, to comply with their own laws.
Sunday 19 June 2022
20.10 – Today went really quick. In fact. The whole weekend went quick. In fact, the last 3370 days are flown away. Let’s see how the next few days bring into the fold.
Monday 20 June 2022
17.28 – Tomorrow is a rail strike, so eff all is likely to happen. Next week, Barristers will go on strike for 10 days – which in my view is a dereliction of duty and should have their practising certificates suspended. A doctor will never leave his patient unprotected, and neither should lawyers. That is my view. Which will not put me on the Christmas card list of my colleagues at the Criminal Bar, but that’s how it is. Sorry, but I must speak what I feel, not what I ought to say.
Tuesday 21 June 2022
20.15 – Today I received more bad news Healthwise. I guess it is inevitable as I am a pensioner. I know I feel 20 years younger, but age is not an opinion, but an administrative fact. Of course, I am devastated at the news, but my real anguish is that I have to face all of it alone because I am alone here and frankly, I should be neither.
Wednesday 22 June 2022
17.19 – The cat that eats from the dog’s bowl gets her whiskers bitten off!!!
Thursday 23 June 2022
15.10 – The bad, bad news I received on Tuesday regarding my health was given to me in error!!! To a certain level, I am relieved. But Jeez, my situation with the news that I have received good well have led to a tragedy. Lucky I am strong, but even I have my limits and my blood is as red as a next person. But boy am I pleased that I am not as bad in health. As was thought. Phew!!!!
Friday 24 June 2022
19.20 – I received a letter from the NHS today confirming I am free of bowel cancer. It is a big relief because when you get to my age as Prince Charles said: “you begin to lose bits of yourself”!!! Next week will be quite important! Oh, eff I say that every week, but it will for various reasons. The pure dishonesty of the judiciary in the country is truly incredible. They will be shamed for sure.
Saturday 25 June 2022
20.05 – Today I want to tell you about love. Not something you might expect from me, but as I get older, I remember an awful lot about the past. When I was six, I came to this country. At 8 we went back to Italy for a four-week holiday where we stayed with my maternal grandparents. Let me now, tell you what unconditional love is. When we travelled back to the UK It was by train. Petrella De Campobasso to Rome. to Milan, to Paris, to Dover. My grandfather, Santino, would take the train to Milan. To accompany us because he wanted to spend as much time as possible. He could not bear leaving us, so he would come as far as he could. That is pure without sacrifice, love. I named my old son after him and boy do I miss my grandparents.
Sunday 26 June 2022
12.00 – Nothing much today, just relaxing, waiting to see how these “cornuti” behave tomorrow. I won’t hold my breath.
Monday 27 June 2022
18.09 – Nothing at all other than that tomorrow something regarding release dates. Will alter by a reduction of three months. Let’s see how things pan out.
Tuesday 28 June 2022
20.31- Today I attended a party of library staff leaving for new ventures. It was very nice to be somewhat normal for once. All of us today were waiting, new release dates as promised by the Ministry of Justice. Well, it will seem as no surprise that as of 19:17 pm, no notifications have been given. Let’s see how things go in the next day or so.
Wednesday 29 June 2022
19.45 – Ghislaine Maxwell has been sentence to 20 years imprisonment in New York. Absolutely shameful sentence because, (a) she is not guilty; and (b) even if she were the appropriate sentence is one of six years. It is unfortunate that the most effective lawyer was not available to her – for now.
Thursday 30 June 2022
20.47 – Tomorrow I am 67 years of age, I don’t feel it, but I am. In fact, I have been a pensioner for the last year. I’m still awaiting my pension. It seems everything I do has a certain type of complication. Even when it is not complicated. Well, today, yes, I am the only person here not to have a new type of release date and would you believe it that on 15 June 2022, the new provisions that excluded me specifically came in. Now I must really be an important guy, for the government to close ranks and alter the rules to exclude me!!! I guess I really should be flattered that I am deemed so important.!!! Anyway, time stops still for no one. What this debacle proves is that the so-called United Kingdom is nothing short of a “rogue state” that bullies the vulnerable. Oh, don’t worry. I am so well trained I can handle it but there are those that cannot. So, I will continue my fight for justice and right! That will cost me, but so will it to them.
Friday 1 July 2022
19.32 – Today is my 67th birthday, and frankly, I did not think I would ever reach this day. Last night some pains on my left arm, and like electric shocks on the muscle. However, a couple of paracetamols and about. 5:00 am I was OK. I am determined to survive this state kidnapping – On Monday, more blood tests. Let’s see what those say. Today everything was normal. I went to work, and how nice that I would see lovely cards from some of the boys here. Even some of the staff wished me well. Saw Karen Todner on video call. She has some good ideas as to how to deal with this matter. Next week we will see how things pan out. Next week will be stressful, but I hope I can handle it. I am it has to be said, worth more dead than alive. Elvis Presley, the day before he died was $3 million in debt. Within a year of his death, his estate was worth over $150 million!!! Room for thought there. Anyway, Destiny decides, not we. Whatever will be will be as they say.
Saturday 2 July 2022
20.03 – “This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper” wrote T S Eliot and that is how my 10th birthday in these places ended yesterday. As I was talking with my mother yesterday about when we came to England in 1961, I remembered that boat trip. My mother and I were on the deck because we could not afford cabins, and with eight suitcases. It was rough, cold, and windy, and my mother was sick. I of course, wanted to explore. So, I went in the passenger spaces below deck. My mother was so sick she could not run after me, and the captain made all passengers stay on one side of the boat as the sea was so rough. When it came to dock at Dover, mum tried to explain that I was missing, because in those days children were not on parent’s passports. When Mum was told to leave the boat, she finally found a seaman who spoke Italian, and the alarm was raised. Of course, I came up to the deck, having spent time in an empty cabin and did not know there was a hue and cry for me. Lots of people in uniform were shouting at me, but Mum was so seasick, did not join in. Well, eight suitcases, and because of the time wasted finding me, we skipped customs, which was just as well as mum had so much foodstuff she would have been stopped and fined. To this day, mum has not told me off for my start in the UK!!!
Sunday 3 July 2022
18.15 – A weird kind of day because it is neither hot nor cold. Tomorrow, I have to undergo some blood tests and this week an MRI scan. You see Prince Charles, is correct that at a certain age, you begin to lose bits. I am a bit concerned about a high reading of PSA. In 2016, it was 2.34, now it’s 5.87. It needs to be kept in check, which is what the doctor is doing. Let’s see “wa gowon.”
Monday 4 July 2022
17.28 – Nothing very much has happened today, and although I have a great case, frankly, I am losing heart because it is crystal clear that the system is corrupt. So, what to do? I really don’t know. There is a good saying, “That the night brings good counsel.” I hear that my junior counsel, Nathaniel Rudolph, is now not only a QC, but also a judge/recorder. Well done. I knew he would go a long way. But at the end of the day, when those who could have helped me, walked away. I wonder if they actually have a conscience.
Tuesday 5 July 2022
17.59 – With so many cabinet resignations, it does seem that Boris Johnson is really in trouble. Is this another victim of the curse of those who have failed to help me by telling the truth? Today I had yet another blood test for my PSA. Let’s hope it comes back below 5!!! Tonight, is the draw for the euro millions lottery with £186 million prize. I wonder if there should be a cap on this.
Wednesday 6 July 2022
16.29 – A lot of some very good stuff happening today, but also some shite situations. I need some time to consider what I have to do.
Thursday 7 July 2022
18.12 – Today for the first time in well probably a very long time I have felt Italian. I want to thank the Italian Consul in London who is resolving a few issues and has made me feel Italian and protected by the state.
Friday 8 July 2022
18.34 – A lot has happened today that has winded me – pleasantly that is – There is really in this world some great people around who really do seek to help me, unconditionally.
Saturday 9 July 2022
19.21 – What did I do today? The square root of sweet eff all! I just relaxed and caught some sun and yes, I was very careful, but it has been a really nice day.
Sunday 10 July 2022
18.56 – Today has been particularly nice because I spent the afternoon outside on the football field, watching a game of football. It was really nice to say the least and I caught the right amount of sun without getting sunburnt, which would have proved complicated as I have skin cancer. I was in the dugout in the shade so all OK. Next week I’m looking forward to.
Monday 11 July 2022
18.34 – Today was very hot, but my room is nice and cool because last year I chose a room which did not attract the sun. So, I got lucky. Today, Karen Todner sent me a copy of the protocol letter. Wow!!!
Tuesday 12 July 2022
19.01 – A hot day, but a good day I received the part 54 protocol letter from Karen Todner, and she has now served the appropriate people. Now we must wait 14 days. So, in two weeks’ time it’s D Day. We will see!!!
Wednesday 13 July 2022
17.43 – Heard yesterday that Lily Safra has died aged 87. I used to have some nice chats with her. In Monaco in the afternoons, I knew her 4th husband Edmund, who died quite mysteriously in 1999. He had, has, a bank in Monaco, near the L’Hermitage Hotel. RIP dear Lily Safra.
