Great teamwork ends crack-house hell for Burwash House residents, as the JMB gain an eviction order.
The Judge has evicted the drug dealer, from the flat that has previously been subject to a Drugs’ Closure order. The Judge also granted an injunction that the ex-tenant and ‘his associates’ are not allowed in the block for one year. The power of arrest was added, so if you see anyone please contact the police.
The person and ‘his associates’ were making life in the block what one resident described as a ‘living hell’. A huge thank you to residents who have turned up at court in the past to give evidence. P.C. Lee Gladhill, Grange Safer Neighbourhood Police Team who turned lawyer, and got the initial Closure Order, when the police lawyer was saying the case was too difficult. Also we have great support from Southwark’s Anti-Social Behaviour Team. Finally Rose and Omor did a great job of representing the JMB in court.
