London (AFP) – Thousands of British men convicted of homosexuality before its decriminalisation are to be pardoned under the “Turing Law”, named after World War II hero Alan Turing, the government said Thursday.
Anyone alive who was convicted of consensual same-sex acts before the law was abolished can already apply to have their names cleared through the “disregard process”, and will now receive an automatic pardon.
Thousands of deceased people will also receive an automatic pardon.
“It is hugely important that we pardon people convicted of historical sexual offences who would be innocent of any crime today,” said Justice Minister Sam Gyimah.
“Through pardons and the existing disregard process we will meet our manifesto commitment to put right these wrongs.”
Private homosexual acts between men aged over 21 were decriminalised in England and Wales in 1967, but the law was not changed in Scotland until 1980 and in Northern Ireland until 1982.
Turing was a computer scientist, philosopher and cryptologist who played a crucial role in breaking the Nazi Enigma code at Britain’s Bletchley Park, which was recently dramatised on the big screen in “The Imitation Game”.
He was prosecuted for homosexuality in 1952 and forced to undergo chemical castration. He killed himself in 1954 at the age of 41.
Turing was officially pardoned by Queen Elizabeth II in 2013, triggering calls for blanket pardons.
Liberal Democrat lord John Sharkey, who introduced the bill to clear Turing, said the latest government announcement heralded “a momentous day for thousands of families up and down the UK”.
“It is a wonderful thing that we have been able to build on the pardon granted to Alan Turing,” he told the BBC.
Why is it “hugely important that we pardon people convicted of historical sexual offences who would be innocent of any crime today”
What is so important about clearing the LEGAL PRESENCE ARTIFICIAL PERSON INSURANCE FRANCHISE CORPORATION TRADE NAME TRUST ACCOUNT of crimes?
The word “Pardon” has interesting legal implications: Unless the pardon expressly states that it is issued because of a determination that therecipient was innocent, a pardon does not imply innocence. It is merely a forgiveness of theoffense. It is generally assumed that acceptance of a pardon is an implicit Acknowledgmentof guilt, for one cannot be pardoned unless one has committed an offense.
By lifting the “charges”/liens on the artificial “person”, there is less karmic weight; by shintoistic reference frames. Though, the word Pardon also implies that the action is DONe on PAR reciprocally. This is to say, those harmed by the implementation of Terroristic Codes are relieved of the lien but also indemnify the prior inappropriate governmental actions.
Put in another context, Dentists who put Mercury-Silver fillings in peoples’ mouths would not admit to it causing mercury poisoning due to liability. Any change in that position would cause liability for all prior actions.
So, the sexual revolutions have liberated LGBTQ+ communities from criminalized lawful behavior, and the “Turing Law” -while pardoning illegal homosexual act charges- also releases the governmental service corporation from compensation the families/estates for its crime of making consensual same-sex acts a crime.
Furthermore, just because charges/liens upon the artificial person were pardoned, doesn’t mean that the debt created behind the charges was destroyed. That debt was already put through the system. It likely ended up in Spiritual Wonder Boy’s Federal Reserve Account worth $2, 588, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 US Dollars. Or maybe the UK CITY OF LONDON equivalent account. The GDP for the Entire Earth for all time is simply a rounding error on that account. This is 2.588 million trillion trillion trillion trillion (which is four trillions stacked in a row). Put another way, 2.588 billion billion billion billion billion billion (which is six billions stacked in a row). 2.588 septendecillion Federal Reserve Notes. This is in the Federal Reserve Banking system. Janet Yellen knows about that account.
