presents at London University
Appearing in person was Dr. Vince Hines, Founder and Chief Executive of the Vince Hines Foundation, and accompanied by Dr. K. W. Spence-Lewis, Senior Consultant to the Vince Hines Foundation.
About ten minutes before the start of the hearing, the LA Counsel handed a bundle of papers to Dr. Hines
, as a response to the Court's request dated 21 st September 2005.
The LA told the Court, in effect, that they did not have enough time to prepare.
The bundle contained minutes of a joint meeting between the Charity and the LA Education Department
at Cambridge House on 13 th April 2005, which is believed to be crucial to the LA Defence, along with copies of correspondence exchanged between the parties during 2005 and extracts from the Police Act 1997.
The LA failed to respond within reasonable time to the Court's request, dated 21 st September 2005, namely, given that evidence was provided by the Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) that Dr. Hines was CRB checked at enhanced level in November 2005 for a purpose, 'the Local Authority will have to demonstrate the obligation upon Dr. Hines to satisfy the request for a CRB Certificate, and to make it clear to the Court whether CRB certificates were supplied by the Charity in relation to all others from whom they were legitimately sought'.
protested strongly before a packed High Court about the lateness of delivery of the papers.
said that the LA had vast resources, which the Charity did not have, yet the LA talked about insufficient time.
final comment to members of the LA Team said that it was ironic that the LA seemed prepared to spend potentially thousands of pounds on legal fees, and not prepare to spend that money in grant to the Charity or on other public services in the interest of local resident.
In addition, the Court consistently requested pointed information from the LA. First, on 23 rd August 2005, The Honourable Mr. Justice Collins, asked the LA to say what information the Charity did not provide, as alleged; and secondly, on 21st September 2005, The Honourable Mr. Justice Leveson asked the LA to demonstrate that Dr. Hines
and the Charity failed to produce.
Finally, on 7 th October the Honourable Mr. Justice Silber ordered a "Roll over", partly because the LA was slow to produce.
Based on the documentations provided by the LA so far, it could not reasonably argued that the LA was forth coming with hard and persuasive evidence of material failures by Dr. Vince Hines
or the Charity in general.

The Partnership core purpose is to assist in enabling partners to achieve their mission statements," Dr. Hines
"The Partnerships aim to help create conditions of trust, a culture of caring and sharing, in the interest of sustainable community development that meets the needs of the local community, where partners pooled resources for better management, efficient service delivery, avoidance of unnecessary service duplications, capacity building, sharing of expertise, and, for mutual benefits, present a collective voice to central government, local authorities, funders, policy makers and others as required, " Dr. Vince Hines
The caring and sharing to which Dr. Hines
referred are centred on areas like communal uses of premises, administration, ICT facilities and costs, expertise, staff - paid and unpaid, through secondment or otherwise, funding strategies, project management, Education and Training resources filling gaps in service delivery, relevant information, advocacy and general support.
