Peter Richards (Labour cllr for Baglan Ward, Neath Port Talbot County Council)
Taken from Cllr Kevin Edwards's blog;
"Below is the second email sent to Councillor Richards by a long standing supporter of the Lewis family sent out of frustration.
He has deliberately refused to reply to the first email.
You can see Cllr Richards position within this discredited Council it has already been highlighted by our friend.
Councillor Richards is not a man to be trusted.
At the last Council Election up until the close of voting he was a candidate for the Ratepayers of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council.
As soon as the polls closed he betrayed the electorate of Baglan Ward as did his fellow Ratepayer Candidate Mrs Juliet Hopkins and defected to the Labour Party.
Ratepayers Councillors defected and Election Uproar, but there is more.
If defecting is not bad enough he did it for money !
He became a Head of a Scrutiny Committee at the bequest of the then Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council the corrupt Derek Vaughan now a Member of the European Parliament at a salary allegedly in the region of £20,000 a year !
Below is the second email sent to Councillor Richards by a supporter of the " Justice 4 Linda Lewis Campaign."
Just like other Councillor's in Neath Port Talbot his arrogance in not responding unfortunately is common practice.
Here it is.

Resent as I do not believe ignorance is a valid reason not to reply.
Dear Peter Denis Richards
Well what a leaflet that was.
Myself and others are amazed to find out that you are Scrutiny Chairman Children Young People and Education as well as Scrutiny Chairman Children's Sub Committee.
I also note that you have three children and grandchildren. No doubt you flout your " family values, family man " image as a way of hoping to be re elected this May.
My question to you is a very simple one taking into account the offices that you hold within this rotten and corrupt Council.
Why have you ignored the evidence presented to you by Councillor Kevin Edwards who has broken a "Super Injunction" proving that Neath Port Talbot Council Social Services removed a 12year old girl from a sick bed in America illegally and without proper extradition documentation and with a false passport.
This is known as the crime of " Kidnapping."
Should you be unaware of Councillor Kevin Edwards blogspot but I am sure you are not then this is it www.cllrkevinedwards.blogspot.com
Today is a particularly sad day for us as it is N@t@sh*'s birthday and as myself, my wife and our family have stood with Linda Lewis from the beginning.
Fourteen years ago this Saturday N@t@sh* was taken from her sick bed in America by the evil Julie Rzezniczek at gunpoint, returned to Britain on a fake passport and has never been returned to her family.
I do not need to elaborate further and ask that you reply to this email with your intentions to end this crime and bring the guilty from within your Council to account.
Should you refuse to reply to this email as seems to be the case as standard by your Councillor's then perhaps a small delegation of the " Justice 4 Linda Lewis Campaign" should contact you at home for a meeting with you to discuss this issue further.
I would not consider it unreasonable to expect your reply before the weekend is over.
I trust you feel the same.
Should you feel the need to contact Councillor Richards his email address is
Please let him know what you think of him.
Politely of course.
I hope you do.
