Freemasons use a hierarchy and all freemasons swear an oath when joining. Meaning that they are bound before another duty to carry out the orders given to the by any higher freemason..
This means that if a judge who is a freemason is hearing a criminal case and the defendant is a freemason of a higher level than the judge then the likely hood of a just trial is slim. Recently two individuals were convicted of the murder of Stephen Lawrence after the original prosecution case collapsed.
Some elements of the national news media have reported that the two individuals convicted of the murder had family members who were connected to powerful underground figures with senior contacts in the police and the judiciary causing the original murder prosecution to collapse.
BBC News reported that the home secretary is to force police officers and judges to declare freemasonry membership
It goes without saying that the original Lawrence murder prosecution may well have collapsed due to freemasonry involvement.
