Sheriff Bowen,

You will see from my three emails (below) to The Grand Lodge of Scottish Freemasonry that they have exercised their right to refuse to confirm or deny your membership with them.  This is very much akin to when you refused to confirm or deny your membership with them, whilst under oath, even though everyone else who was asked that question by George Robert Green, answered in the negative.

I, therefore, make the following assertion to you now, in this ‘OPEN’ email: You, Sheriff Principle Edward F Bowen QC, are, to use Masonic language, a Free & Accepted Freemason and have used your Masonic influence and leverage to pervert the course of justice by denying George Robert Green his ‘Human Right’ to an open and fair trial.

Your actions, as a Free & Accepted Freemason, during the trial of George Robert Green are, by anyone’s standards – including the legal system as well as the Freemasons themselves – utterly reprehensible!

The criminal activity you engaged in whilst in Open Court, I shall address below.  But here I wish to state that your unacceptable actions against Robert Green and your clear bias against him throughout the trial, in favour of your professional associate of at least TEN YEARS (a relationship you failed to declareat any time during the trial or when you had the chance again just before sentencing Robert Green), ‘Dame’ Elish Angiolini, along with protecting your Masonic ‘brethren’, have brought that noble Fraternity’s reputation into disrepute.

It is my understanding that, in the olden days, activity that caused the Masonic Order to be viewed in such a negative light, could have meant certain death to that Mason.  As you will, of course, be very aware, being as you are, a Freemason, the three main tenets of Freemasonry are: 1) Brotherly Love 2) Relief/Charity 3) Truth As such, you appear to have breached Masonic tenets 1 & 3, at least as far as the Scottish judicial system goes.

I shall, therefore, leave it up to your ‘brethren’ as to how they wish to deal with you, given you have now directly linked the Freemasons with those who knowingly and wilfully support and protect paedophiles at the expense of the victims of child abuse attacks.

With all of above in mind, I am now calling you out!  I openly and directly accuse you, Sheriff Principle Edward F Bowen QC, of being a ‘corrupt’ Freemason and unlawfully using your Masonic influence and connections to ‘pervert the course of justice’ and to knowingly and wilfully, through your actions, allow children and vulnerable adults to remain at risk of abuse, suffering and even death, in Scotland.

You will be aware (due to Robert Green bringing it to your attention – no matter how hard you tried to stop him) that, during the Interim Diet of April 2010, Robert noted a document with the iconic ‘Square & Compass’ insignia, used exclusively by the Freemasons, had been passed between Mr McGowan and Sheriff Davies.  Obviously, being a Freemason, in and of itself, is not illegal.  Indeed, British Royalty are members.  In fact, as long as there is nothing untoward going on, I would have thought that it should be something its members proudly display for all to see as membership is not something that needs to be kept secret.

However, you have clearly acted in such as way as to protect them, rather than ensuring the justice was seen to be done. These actions, given the three main tenets mentioned above, are all contrary to your Fraternity’s ideals.

Your professional associate, of at least ten years, Dame Angiolini, is now the suspect in a criminal investigation by the Scottish CID in respect of the allegation regarding ‘misappropriation of public funds’. Your links with this woman clearly blacken your Masonic Order’s reputation. Your refusal to allow Robert Green access to two key witnesses who were essential in the defence of Robert Green, plus denying Robert Green the chance to speak freely for himself are highly suspicious for a man of the law who is charged to carry out his duty fairly and honestly.

In addition, using ‘racist’ language against Robert Green when sentencing him (telling Robert Green that he, as a Welsh/English man, had no place telling the Scottish legal system how to run its affairs) is utterly uncalled for and highly inappropriate for a man in your position of public trust.

Therefore, Sir, I hereby openly state that you are an abomination to the Scottish judicial system and all that it stands for.

Further, you personally pose a very real and immediate threat to children and vulnerable adults, as too does your long-term professional associate Elish Angiolini.

I trust that your own arrest and incarceration will not be long coming.

Yours… in total and utter disgust at your flagrant disregard for fairness, truth, justice and impartiality,

Dear Mr McFerran,   I acknowledge receipt of your emails of 8th, 15th and 21st February regarding Sheriff Principle Edward F Bowen QC. I deal with email in strict date order and receive a large number daily.   Like a great many other organisations the Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Accepted Masons of Scotland does not disclose the names of its members. It is a matter for the individual to decide whether or not he or she wishes to disclose membership of any body of which he or she may be a member.   I am sorry not to have been of more assistance on this occasion.

Dear Curator,

I am rather puzzled as to why you have not responded to my very reasonable request for some basic information, as outlined below in my two previous email to you.  I would have thought that this inquiry should only have taken a few moments to check and report back on as I only require a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ type of response.

The individual identified below is now the focus of a very serious miscarriage of justice which, through his recent actions in Open Court, has, in part, resulted in the incarceration of an innocent man who was trying to protect children from abuse and, therefore, the ongoing sexual abuse of children and vulnerable adults in Scotland.

The continuing silence of The Grand Lodge of Scotland is a rather worrying development here as it would seem, to the uninitiated eye, that the man identified below is currently a Freemason and, for whatever reason, is benefiting from the protection of The Grand Lodge of Scotland.

Is my perspective on this matter wrong?  If I am wrong (and I honestly hope I am), please reply with an answer to my initial inquiry by 10pm tomorrow (Wednesday 22nd February 2012).

I should point out that if I receive no answer to my completely reasonable inquiry, this will leave me with no alternative but to assume that the identified man is indeed a practicing Freemason and currently benefiting from the silent protection of your Grand Lodge, for reasons best known to the Lodge membership itself.  This, as I’m sure you’ll agree, is deeply worrying turn of events as it would suggest that Freemasons approve of child abuse!

However, the above said, I feel sure that your lack of response is, thus-far, just an oversight which can be quickly rectified.  Therefore, I await your reply within the next 24 hours.

Yours sincerely,
Ian McFerran

This is just a polite reminder about my inquiry below.  I haven’t heard back from you so I thought I would ask if there had been any progress with my inquiry?

Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Subject: Membership inquiry Dear Curator of the Grand Lodge of Scottish Freemasonry,

I wonder if I might make a request of your Lodge for a small piece of information which, if I’m correct, I don’t believe is considered secret or something that cannot be disclosed?  This request should not, in any way, be considered to be a form of suspicion or negative slant on Masonry itself because it is not – at all.

I wish to know if the following man has ever been a Freemason, to the best of the knowledge and records of your Grand Lodge or those answerable to it and, if so, when did his Brotherhood begin and when, if ever, did it end?  The man’s name and public title is: Sheriff Principle Edward F Bowen QC

A simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ and the dates will be more than acceptable.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Yours sincerely,

Ian McFerran

  1. Sir a delightful piece of work, my interest knows no bounds as to how Bowen will respond.This will surely instigate a ‘response’ of some/any kind somewhere in this chain of deciet that may lead to the truth being told at last. Hornets nests sometime need testing and this mud and paper insubstantial home must crumble and soon.

  2. It is interesting to read the entry for Edward Farquharson Bowen in the 2012 edition of Who’s Who. He was born in 1945 and was educated at Melville College, Edinburgh. He attended Edinburgh University. He was called to the Scottish Bar in 1970. In 1975, he married Patricia Margaret Brown, daughter of Rev Russell Brown of Perth. He was Chairman of the northern Lighthouse Board 2003-2005. He was a Comr Northern Lights 1997- .Clubs: New (Edinburgh) Royal and Ancient ( St Andrews), Palnure (a golf club where he was captain) Recreation: Golf. He lives at The Old Manse, Lundie, Angus DD2 5NW.

    A search using his name reveals he has been involved in some dubious rulings previously.

    It can be said fro certain that he is a Freemason. It is probable that he is a very senior Freemason at that. His bacground makes him an establishment man through and through.

  3. Great piece Ian.It will be interesting to see what response if any you get to this article.This is not going to go away.

  4. It’s time the Blue Lodge/porch Mason knew exactly what they’ve signed up for.

    I remember when I was at Primary school – about 100 years ago! – when we used to set up secret clubs with rules and passwords. I grew up and no longer found this necessary, what does that tell you about ‘grown men’ taking blood oaths and swearing secrecy all to get some financial advantage, but the majority don’t see the Luciferian doctrine that they have sworn fealty to. A real man doesn’t have to rely on other men stupidly swearing to protect them.

  5. Regarding SHERIFF PRINCIPAL EDWARD F BOWEN QC in the appeal
    in the cause of ROBBIE THE PICT v MILLER BUIDHEANN LIMITED (The Skye Bridge Toll):

    Bowen had no difficulty in expressing whether he was compromised or not:

    “As I am not a member of the Speculative Society arrangements were made for this matter to be dealt with by me.”

    Strange he was unable to do so in the case of Robert Green.
