Read this (old, 25 April 2008, article):

"Commenting on the High Court ruling that asset-freezing orders imposed by the Treasury under UN anti-terror laws are legally flawed because Parliament was bypassed, Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary, Chris Huhne said:
"A crucial difference between this country and a banana republic is that ministers are not allowed to go around arbitrarily arresting people or confiscating their property without due process under the rule of law.
"Not for the first time, Gordon Brown's Government has been found behaving like one of the worst Latin American juntas. Thankfully our judges have slapped them down as they deserve."

I think he would be worth contacting, and informing of our situation, particularly the Oct. 21 press release concerning the actions the UK Govt took:

I've already sent him this: also posted on another thread

Dear sir,

I write as one of thousands of mainly british depositors in KSFIOM.
Please find below the text of a question which I have recently submitted to
the treasury committee's "banking crisis enquiry" scheduled for 3rd Nov.
I think that this question encompasses some of the most vital points to be
investigated in order to get to the bottom of this fiasco which has put
thousands of british savers in severe jeopardy.As such I suppose it will
be filtered out and will never be asked!!

Does Alistair Darling agree that the Isle of Man FSC has stated that it was
responsible for some £550M of mostly british depositors money in Kaupthing
Singer & Friedlander Isle of Man being deposited for "safe keeping" in
Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander UK and does he also agree that it did so
following discussions with the UK financial regulatory authorities,and does
he further agree that the FSC was not consulted in any way prior to KSF UK
being placed into administration, using sealed papers, by the ill-conceived
& hasty actions of the UK Government thus causing these funds to continue
to remain inaccessible to the liquidator provisional for KSFIOM and thus
causing untold hardship to thousands of british depositors?

Yours sincerely
