Example of Treason from a file in our library (Exhibit C - 1993 Treason Charges, "Treason and The Validity of Magna Carta 1215"):
Whereas it is an offence under Section 1 of the Treason Act 1795 “within the realm or devise...constraint of the person of our sovereign...his heirs or successors.”

On 7th February 1992 the Rt Hon Douglas Richard Hurd, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs ... and the Rt Hon Francis Anthony Aylmer Maude ... did sign a Treaty of European Union at Maastricht in the Netherlands, according to Article 8 of which Her Majesty the Queen becomes a citizen of the European Union (confirmed by the Home Secretary in the House of Commons: Hansard 1st February 1993) therefore “subject to the duties imposed thereby”, subject to being arraigned in her own courts and being taxed under Article 192 of the integrated Treaty and thereby effectively deposed as the sovereign and placed in a position of suzerainty under the power of the “European Union”.


Therefore the said Rt Hon Douglas Hurd and the said Rt Hon the Hon Francis Maude are guilty of treason.


Keys to understanding PLD:


This is the formal petition by the baron's committee resulting in the invocation of Article 61, Magna Carta 1215.  The barons presented Her Majesty the opportunity to prevent her agents committing Treason.  She gave Royal Assent to Her own usurpation.
She betrayed the Commonwealth.



The Security Clause of Magna Carta gives the land-owners a lawful process for petitioning the Crown should injustice reign.  We are all compelled to peaceful disobedience until the injustice is properly resolved.

The invocation was reported by

Caroline Davies for the Telegraph.


Magna Carta is the mutual agreement to respect equality and right to give or withhold consent; no parliament has the authority to repeal or modify it. 

The Crown's failure to rebuke the baron's petition and invocation is

tacit acknowledgement of Clause 61: security for equality under the law.

Magna Carta 1215 is the Foundation of our Constitution across the Commonwealth.

​Our Monarch holds *our* inalienable Right of Sovereignty (self-determination) in trust and exercises *our* Authority over parliament to protect this Right.

The "void and null" 1688 Bill of Rights transferred our Authority over parliament to parliament: High Treason.
