This press release from the Universal Film & Festival Organisation raises some interesting points.Massive corruption and malpractice in BAFTAClose connections between BAFTA and the Groucho Club (“joined at the hip”). The Groucho Club has been previously exposed by Tyrone Murphy for child sexual abuse Groucho Club and Child Sexual Abuse [1]BAFTA is a charity. The overseeing body of charities and BAFTA is the Charity Commission which however relies on the trustees of the Charity to follow up on any investigation – meaning the Charity Commission is toothless as it relies on the fraudsters to police their own fraud!Tweets can be found on twitter under #BaftaCorruptionPress Release from Universal Film & Festival OrganisationBAFTA has been slammed by independent industry watchdog for double standards and hypocrisy over their public announcement that BAFTA is looking to Stamp Out “Pernicious” working practices in the industry.The founder of the industry watchdog, the Universal Film and Festival Organisation (UFFO) Tyrone D Murphy, a former BAFTA committee member has slammed the BAFTA executive for the farcical attempt at occupying the moral high ground and offering moral leadership in a time when the industry is in a state of crisis.Murphy served on the BAFTA Committee for two years and compiled a 26-page report which outlined many corrupt practices at the BAFTA charity. The report on corruption and mismanagement contains evidence for the bulk of the allegations. Murphy is a former investigator and surveillance specialist who has been heading up the UFFO movement aimed at stamping out fraudulent activity at film festivals and awards prior to joining the BAFTA committee.The issues raised in Murphy’s report include some very serious allegations. These include the switching of awards, giving awards to friends, blocking awards for political reasons, fraudulent committee elections and vice chair elections, members not being informed about elections, committee members and staff not declaring “conflicts of interest”, the leaking of the entire BAFTA members database on three separate occasions, another BAFTA database freely on sale on the internet after the suspected hacking of BAFTA servers, BAFTA committee members being cheated out of their positions, the BAFTA Branches in the regions not adhering to Company or Charity Law, members of the executive completely unaware of the legal structure of the BAFTA branches, bullying and intimidation and the list goes on.Murphy said, “When I became a committee member, I knew exactly what to look for insofar as corruption was concerned given my experience with the Universal Film & Festival Organisation. However, I was astounded at the level of mismanagement and casual corruption within the charity. I was even more surprised after I presented the “BAFTA Corruption Report” to the BAFTA executive outlining some very serious issues of corruption and mismanagement at the charity. They simply tried to cover it up and expected me to go along with it”.After Murphy refused to go along with the coverup, he advised the executive that an investigation into the allegations should be conducted by an external body as the nature of the allegations was so serious. In addition, some members of the BAFTA executive were included in the report; they were therefore in a conflicted position. However, the BAFTA executive would not hear of it and tasked a media solicitor who was also a BAFTA trustee to conduct an investigation.Murphy then advised the BAFTA executive to secure additional evidence of corruption he identified from one of the BAFTA offices. He also pointed out on numerous occasions, “you cannot investigate without evidence”. What followed seems to be a half-hearted flawed investigation by the BAFTA executive simply for appearance’s sake, going through the motions. The BAFTA executive absolved everyone (including themselves) of any wrongdoing while issuing the same old rhetoric we have all become so familiar with in such cases. “Mistakes were made, lessons have been learned and now we move on.”Tyrone D Murphy is no stranger to controversy. He was the subject of a historic libel action instigated against him by the famous “Groucho Club”. The Groucho Club lost the case in a very embarrassing way after Murphy demolished their case as a litigant in person. Murphy later went on to publish numerous articles on issues such as rape at the club, child abuse on the Groucho clubs own members forum and sexual harassment of staff and much more.After the BAFTA executive embarked on a coverup, Murphy sent
