Discover the Real Truth About Jailed Journalist Mazher Mahmood aka The Fake Sheikh former employee of Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch & Former Journalist for The News of the World of Phone Hacking Fame!

For anyone who does not already know, my birth name is Alex William Smith, I made my stage debut aged 3 as Flap the Clown on Gandey’s Circus and by the early 90’s was Internationally known as a Comedy Stage Hypnotist & Celebrity Hypnotherapist in the Stage Name of Alex-Leroy.

These days on stage I am better known as Jonathan Royle, in any event I am one of the people that the Crown Prosecution Service are talking about at this link:

Yes indeed I am one of the many people who became a victim of the Fake Sheikh Mazher Mahmood & his dishonesty despite the fact that I was back in 1998 trying to expose his unethical, immoral and illegal techniques at the time he managed to massively screw me over as will be explained further down this page.

Upon this page you will find a Comical & Satirical Look at Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch and his now disgraced and jailed undercover investigative journalist Mazher Mahmood aka The Fake Shiekh who used to fabricate stories for the now shut down (due to Phone Hacking & other Illegal activities) News of the World and then later went on to work for the Sun on Sunday where he met his eventual downfall after being found Guilty by all six jury members at The Old Bailey on the charge of Conspiracy to Pervert the Course of Justice along with his driver Alan Smith in the case of the manufactured story that had been run about British Pop Singer Tulisa Contostavlos.

Sadly it seems that Murdoch’s companies and staff will never learn as is illustrated by this recent court case –

The ironic thing is its taken almost 20 years since I first tried to expose the Dodgy, Dishonest, unethical and often wholly Illegal techniques used by Murdoch’s Fake Sheikh Mazher Mahmood in the “News of the World” Newspaper along with my attempts to expose how many other so called “True Stories” of both a “News” and “Entertainment” basis are often largely or solely fabricated and made up.

Details of my attempt back in 1998 to expose “The Fake Sheikh” Mazher Mahmood can be seen along with information about how he regularly illegally entrapped people, manipulated them into doing things they would never normally have dreamed of doing and at times even regularly just fabricated situations, claims and false evidence to make his false stories appear to have a basis in truth that actually at heart they did not can be seen here at this link:

LEVESON PART TWO = Please Help Ensure That Police & Media Corruption is EXPOSED and that Victims of Press Abuse Finally Get Justice!

BREAKING NEWS: House of Lords Passes Ammendment Demanding that Part Two of
Leveson Inquiry Must Take Place:

BAD NEWS = We Still need your help to ensure that the House of Commons do note
vote against and/or overule this ammendment so PLEASE Contact your MP now as

The Recent Jailing of Murdoch’s “Fake Sheikh” Mazher Mahmood and the fact so many of his innocent victims are now appealing their Convictions, with many others also taking Civil Action is just one of the numerous very good reasons why we need PART TWO of The LEVESON Inquiry to take place as a matter of urgency.

The Daniel Morgan Murder

The Daniel Morgan Murder

The Daniel Morgan Murder is the most investigated Murder in British History and Still nobody has been charged. Evidence exists that Southern Investigations worked with
Mazher Mahmood for many, many years and also evidence exists that News International
aka The now Defunct News of the World interferred in the proper investigation of Daniel
Morgans Murder. Yet another good reason why we need LEVESON PART 2 as a matter of extreme urgency.

Also Section 40 needs to be implemented as soon as possible so that the only truly independent Press Regulator “IMPRESS” can offer real protection and help to victims of press abuse and so that they will have real powers and thus will act as a real deterrent to stop the media from publishing lies, fabricated and distorted rubbish and indeed ever entrapping or manipulating people in the same manner that the “Fake Sheikh” regularly did.

the-old-baileyThis Link Will Explain More About What Section 40 is and why it needs to be implemented

And this link includes information on why we Need Leveson 2 to take place:


Questions 1, 2 and 3 are about who you are and where you are etc….

Then to give you an example the rest of the questions are as follows (see below)
and here are the answers that I gave so you know which are the right ones to
tick the boxes on of the multiple choice questions and also have an idea of what
to say in reply to the rest of the questions.



4: Which of the following statements do you agree with? (Tick all that apply)

Government should fully commence s.40 now.

5.Do you have evidence in support of your view, particularly in terms of the impacts on the press industry and claimants?


6Please provide the evidence which supports your view. (Maximum 250 words)

Having Studied this at great length and attended events by Hacked Off, it is my understanding that implementing Section 40 will protect publishers just as much as it will those who feel (and can show) that they have been or have become victims of press abuse.

IMPRESS the only truly independent Press Regulator has now been given a Royal Charter and Approval and by implementing Section 40, you can help them to become the logical body of choice for all media to become members of, thus helping to ensure that unfounded attacks on innocent people, untruthful and distorted stories and defamatory rubbish no longer continues to appear in British Media.

Or at very least that if it does appear, those innocent victims of it, can thanks to Section 40 pursue affordably and realistically their legal right of redress to make the truth known and get the justice that they deserve when they have been wronged.

Publishers need not fear this as if they publish only the truth then no action will ever come against them, but even if they did for example accidentally be found of defaming someone, if they have joined a body such as IMPRESS then they too as the Publishers will have a level of protection.

7.To what extent will full commencement incentivise publishers to join a recognised self-regulator? Please use evidence in your answer. (Maximum 250 words)

It is my belief that the ONLY way to incentivise publishers to join a truly independent regulator such as IMPRESS which now has a Royal Charter and is the only truly independent press regulator which does not have involvement or meddling from those whose self-interests are involved due to them being too close to the media which prints things is to ensure that Section 40 is commenced urgently. It is only when people have true protection from becoming victims of press abuse or at very least have an affordable way to defend their position when they have been wronged that justice and truth will ever finally prevail in the British media.

Questions on Part 2 of the Leveson Inquiry

Part 1 of the Leveson Inquiry examined the culture, practices and ethics of the press and, in particular, the relationship of the press with the public, police and politicians.

Part 2 was designed to examine wrongdoing in the press and the police and the wider implications for police and press relations.

8. Do you believe that the terms of reference of Part 2 of the Leveson Inquiry have already been covered by Part 1 and the criminal investigations?


9. Which terms do you think still require further investigation? (Tick all that apply)


Term of Reference 3 (To inquire into the extent of unlawful or improper conduct within News International, other newspaper organisations and, as appropriate, other organisations within the media, and by those responsible for holding personal data).

Term of Reference 4 (To inquire into the way in which any relevant police force investigated allegations or evidence of unlawful conduct by persons within or connected with News International, the review by the Metropolitan Police of their initial investigation, and the conduct of the prosecuting authorities).

Term of Reference 5 (To inquire into the extent to which the police received corrupt payments or other inducements, or were otherwise complicit in such misconduct or in suppressing its proper investigation and how this was allowed to happen)

Term of Reference 6 (To inquire into the extent of corporate governance and management failures at News International and other newspaper organisations, and the role, if any, of politicians, public servants and others in relation to any failure to investigate wrongdoing at News International).

Term of Reference 7 (In the light of these inquiries, to consider the implications for the relationships between newspaper organisations and the police, prosecuting authorities, and relevant regulatory bodies – and to recommend what actions, if any, should be taken).

10. If you have evidence to support your answer, please provide details below. (Maximum 250 words)

Need I say more than Milly Dowler, Phone Hacking, The Daniel Morgan Murder and Mazher Mahmood?

The Daniel Morgan Murder is the most investigated murder in British History and there is evidence that News International have interfered in the investigation/s, also evidence exists that Southern Investigations were used by News International and Mazher Mahmood for many years and that ultimately combined with Mahmoods boasts of having Bent Coppers in his pocket and his most recent conviction for Perverting the Course of Justice, there is quite obviously a massive can of worms that demands further investigation.

The fact so many who were victims of the same kind of deception, entrapment, dishonesty, lies and deceit at the hand of Mazher Mahmood who evidence shows even perjured himself during the first part of the Leveson Inquiry have now got appeals in process with the CCRC and Courts also calls into question why did the Police and CPS ever believe any alledged evidence from Mahmood and News UK/International when evidence exists that they knew Mahmood could not be trusted as far back as 1998/1999 and possibly earlier.

The fact that Police and Media may have had a corrupt relationship in the past most certainly is of public interest and needs to be investigated in depth and the truth uncovered.

11. Which of the following options best represent your views?

Continue the Inquiry with the original or amended Terms of Reference

12. If you think the Government should take another course of action to those set out in the question above, please provide your views. (Maximum 250 words)

The Government Should and indeed MUST do exactly what has been promised to the General Public for so long now, namely to implement Section 40 as a matter of urgency to give potential victims of press abuse a realistic and affordable right of reply and route to justice and also Start Part Two of the Leveson Inquiry immediatly.

Quite honestly to not do so will look (whether it is or not) to everybody like some kind of attempt by the Government to help Cover up the truth about the Media and Police Corruption which it is becoming increasingly clear has taken place over the years.

Hypnotist Hopes Fake Sheikh Nightmare Will End Soon – (How Convicted Journalist Mazher Mahmood’s Dishonesty Ruined Celebrity Mind Therapists Life)


Controversial Stage Svengali & Celebrity Mind Therapy Consultant Jonathan Royle has today spoken of the “Living Nightmare” that he has been subjected to for over 18 years
since the now Convicted Journalist Mazher Mahmood aka “The Fake Sheikh” published
a largely fabricated story about him in the now defunct News of the World newspaper.

Royle, aged 41 of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, who was born Alex William Smith whilst
his parents were travelling on Gandey’s Circus has always maintained his innocence and
complete lack of any Criminal intent during the slightly backfired Publicity Stunt he was involved in back in 1998, during which his sole intention was to expose the often dodgy & dishonest journalistic techniques of The infamous “Fake Sheikh” Mazher Mahmood.

Award Winning Hypnotist Jonathan Royle

Award Winning Hypnotist Jonathan Royle

This was accepted and acknowledged in Court as Fact by The Police, Crown Prosecution Service and the Judge in the Manchester Crown Court Case which ultimately led to Royle (aka Alex Smith) entering a late plea of guilty as he was advised at the last moment, that he was not going to be afforded the same “Journalistic License” for his activities in the attempted expose of Mahmoods Techniques as would be afforded to Mahmood himself and thus help protect the “Fake Sheikh” from Prosecution for many years.

As was accepted and acknowledged in Court, Royle always knew who he was dealing with and knew that the Counterfeit Coins that he delivered to Mahmood would never enter
into public circulation, but rather would be handed to the Police by Mahmood and ultimately
Royle would then be able to help the Police investigate those who supplied the Coins.

Unfortunately due to not being afforded the same “Journalistic License” as was given to
Mahmood, despite all parties confirming and stating in court that “this was not a normal case” and that it was “all a publicity stunt” that had got a little out of hand, Royle was
given a Six Month Custodial Prison Sentence.


*He Knew That The Fakes WOULD NOT be circulated Publicly.

*His meetings with the reporters were a PUBLICITY STUNT.

*Judge David Owen Said “I Limit This Sentence because IT IS NOT AN ORDINARY CASE”

*It was a PUBLICITY STUNT to gain media recognition which had backfired.

*Anthony Morris defending said “One of the men he dealt with was Smiths former Publicity Agent, they had been concerned together in earlier SCAMS aimed at getting Smith Publicity, and he knew whatever he said or did would get newspaper exposure!”

*He Has done many outlandish things TO GAIN PUBLICITY

*Smith Knew the Fake Coins WOULD NOT be circulated Publically in what was a ONE OFF offence by a Man of Good character.


*In the actual Court Case, the Judge, Crown Prosecution Service and also the Police ALL CONFIRMED IN COURT that having seen all the evidence that they 100% KNEW that it was all a PUBLICITY STUNT & MEDIA STING engineered BY ME to help gain Publicity for myself and also TO EXPOSE DODGY JOURNALISTS AND JOURNALISM.

Hypnotist is to Appeal Mazher Mahmood "Fake Sheikh" Conviction

Hypnotist is to Appeal Mazher Mahmood “Fake Sheikh” Conviction

Royle aka Alex William Smith is one of Six People including Former Grange Hill and Londons Burning Actor John Alford and Boxer Herbie Hides who are now being Represented by Siobhain Egan of Lewis Nedas Law and  have currently got their
Appeals against their Convictions lodged with The Criminal Cases Review Commission

With My Good Friend John Alford

Royle With His Good Friend John Alford

Royle has also appointed Lawyer Mark Lewis of Seddons to deal with the Civil
Claims part of proceedings in the quest to clear his name once and for all.

Today When Interviewed Royle Said:

“For far too long the dishonest journalist and so called King of The Sting Mazher
Mahmood has hidden behind Journalistic Privilege and has consequently been able to
entice & manipulate people into doing things they would never normally dream of doing, whilst on other occasions blatantly distorting things and even manipulating evidence
and perceived reality to suit his own ends”

Royle Continued:

“I have for over 18 years been fighting to make the truth about Mahmood and his
techniques known and have hoped, that by so doing it would at some point help
the likes of Herbie Hides, my friend John Alford and others to get their convictions overturned”

“The past 18 years has at times been a living hell for me (and no doubt many of
Mahmoods other victims) as myself, my family and also my friends have on many
occasions been subjected to abuse and bullying based on peoples incorrect
perceptions of me as some kind of criminal mastermind”

Mazher Mahmood aka The Fake Shiekh -

Mazher Mahmood aka The Fake Shiekh –

“The simple fact is that I was never ever charged in any manner for any of the
outrageous and truly shocking allegations made in Mahmoods News of the World Article about me, except for delivering some fake pound coins to him, for which, it was even accepted in court I had done with zero criminal intent attached and for which I was only ever charged as I was not afforded the same “Journalistic License” as Mahmood”

“Having been at the Old Bailey on Wednesday 5th October 2016 and witnessed
the jury of 6 men and 6 women unanimously reach a verdict of GUILTY against
Mazher Mahmood and his driver Alan Smith for Conspiracy to Pervert The Course
of Justice, it is now my sincere hope that all of Mahmoods Victims can get their
convictions overturned, get their names cleared and start afresh without being
the target of abuse, harassment or prejudice the likes of which I have had to endure
on regular occasions during the past 18 years”

Royle Concluded by Saying:

“Thank God that I am a trained Hypnotherapist and have been able to use my skills
in order to help me stay mentally strong, some others I have encountered who have been targeted by Mahmood have unfortunately not been so lucky and where possible I have
been glad to offer them my services to help them regain some sense of positivity in life,
but now Mahmood has been found Guilty I hope that will be the Catalyst of Hope and
the start of the light at the end of the tunnel getting much brighter for all of Mahmoods
innocent victims”

Fake Sheikh Mazher Mahmood Back in Court… 6 Convictions Being Appealed by Alex Smith aka Jonathan Royle Hypnotist , Herbie Hides (Boxer), John Alford (Actor) and Others all represented by Siobhain Egan of Lewis Nedas Law and Mark Lewis of Seddons Solicitors.

Let’s Start with this Blog Posting from Wednesday 29th July 2015 which I have copied and pasted from this link:

Mazher Mahmood aka The Fake Shiekh - Why Has He not Been Charged with Perjury Yet?

Mazher Mahmood aka The Fake Shiekh – Why Has He not Been Charged with Perjury Yet?

Fake Sheikh Back In Court

Events may not have moved very far at the CPS as regards the decision to charge Mazher Mahmood, aka the Fake Sheikh, but the Court of Appeal is about to hear the case of one Alex Smith, former professional prankster, who was, it seems, set up by Mahmood back in 1998 over a counterfeit money sting. Smith thought he was playing a prank on Mahmood, only to find himself on the front page of the now-defunct Screws soon afterwards.

He later changed his plea to guilty, partly because of Mahmood’s ability to hide behind journalistic privilege, and a third party whom he had previously befriended turning out to be one of Mahmood’s accomplices. Smith was given a custodial sentence. But the bad news for the Fake Sheikh is that there are five other appeals that may get bundled in with Smith’s, one of which is that of actor John Alford.

Alford was effectively ruined after Maz stung him over a drug deal which the actor had been induced into making. The Fake Sheikh was seen laughing at the prospect of his target being ruined in a video shown as part of John Sweeney’s Panorama investigation which the Murdoch empire’s lawyers did their best to keep off the screens. The reason for asking for all six cases to be heard together is straightforward.

As the papers to be laid before the court tell, there are “serious concerns over the safety of those convictions … The common thread to all matters is the integrity of Mazher Mahmood … who was the sole progenitor in all of the cases. In January 2015, the CPS sent ‘Disclosure Packs’ to 25 defendants who had either pleaded guilty or who had been convicted as a result of evidence provided by Mazher Mahmood”.

There was more: “In nearly all cases, complaint was made about the methods employed by him in the obtaining of ‘evidence’, the veracity of that evidence, the disclosure regime that he operated in, as well as his hiding of ‘sources’ from the court, Police, and the defence via journalistic privilege. There is now a suggestion that he has been involved in, and with associations, whose activity can be properly described as criminal”.

And here was the pièce de résistance: “Furthermore … it is submitted that on the face of it, not only has [Mahmood] lied in a staccato fashion to a number of courts over the years, it is clear that he misled the Leveson Inquiry”. So who else is in the frame for appealing their conviction? To no surprise at all, former boxer Herbie Hide’s name is there. Hide also featured in the Panorama exposé of Mahmood’s methods.

The submission, indeed, refers to the Panorama film, the attempt to block its screening, and, to no surprise at all, Judge McCreath and the Tulisa Contostavlos case. It covers the match-fixing case against several footballers, which has also recently been thrown out. It notes that Mahmood continues to have all his legal fees paid by the Murdoch press. And the observations include Maz’ claim to have bent Police officers on his side.

All of which suggests that the Fake Sheikh, his lawyers, and eventually the press, when they all decide to wake up and smell the coffee, may be gainfully employed with this one for a while yet. We will be having another look at proceedings later.

Have You Ever Been Convicted Due to a Mazher Mahmood “Fake Sheikh” Sting? Or Do you Know Someone who was Set up by Mahmood? Either way Please Get them To Contact Siobhain Egan at Lewis Nedas Law Urgently for information on how they could possibly Appeal their conviction!
