Patrick Rock resigned as Deputy head of Cameron’s policy unit

No.10 aide Patrick Rock resigns after being arrested over child abuse image allegations.Rock was one of Cameron’s Downing Street fixers.

The two had worked together as SPADs to Michael Howard and Rock was very much part of the old special adviser network.

Michael Howard is a member of the highly secretive organization ‘Le Cercle'[15], which has deep ties to many intelligence agencies and has a long history of links to many of those involved with organized child abuse, along with shadowy covert acts such as media propaganda, arms dealing and on the ground military action, generally funded by offshore shell companies.

Michael Howard is a long time friend of Jonathan Aitken, global arms dealer and one time head of Le Cercle.

In 2001 the Purdews of Champneys (friends of Sir Jimmy Savile and Keith Vaz) briefly acquired Inglewood health hydro from agents of Saudi prince Mohammed bin Fahd. Inglewood had been the scene of allegations, published in the Guardian six years earlier, that then defence minister Jonathan Aitken, a director of the spa, had tried to arrange girls for a Saudi prince and his entourage.

The report led to the notorious libel action brought by Aitken ultimately culminating in his being sentenced to jail for perjury.

Former Tory MP Jonathan Aitken, once a director of Champneys Inglewood. He was accused by former employees of acting as a ‘pimp’ by requesting call girls, once for a sheikh and once for a group of Arabs.

Then he was embroiled in a legal dispute with former brothel keeper Lindi ‘Miss Whiplash’ St Clair, who claimed that she was thrown out of Inglewood partway through a course.

And though Aitken met his future wife Lolicia at Inglewood, he also cheated on her with bondage prostitute Paula Strudwick, telling her to collect the right sort of birch branches from the woods outside the estate for sadomasochistic sex games. You’d have thought someone would have twigged what was going on.

Boris Johnson and Sir Simon Henry Milton

Sir Simon Henry Milton (2 October 1961 – 11 April 2011) was a British Conservative politician.He lately served as London’s Deputy Mayor for Policy and Planning, and before that was a leader of Westminster City Council and Chairman of the Local Government Association.

Milton was a director of Ian Greer Associates, a parliamentary lobbying company “with close links to the Tory party” which was at the centre of the Cash-for-questions scandal in the 1990s.

Deputy Chairman Simon Milton was helping Ian Greer and Associates Simon Milton is now dead but his partner Robert Davis is still a Westminster Councillor.
 

Ian Greer, political lobbyist, has died aged 82. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/12001034/Ian-Greer-lobbyist-obituary.html

We all know Ian Greer, controversial lobbyist and close pal of Simon Milton , fled to South Africa following the cash for questions scandal in the nineties.

Was this the only reason he fled?

Maybe not.

Ian Greer has set up a charitable organisation for adults and vulnerable children affected by the Aids crisis in South Africa.

According to ‘Ground Up’ :

The Helderberg Street Peoples’ Centre in Somerset West cares for poor and marginalised people. It is a soup kitchen, but it also offers counselling and support to people with drug and alcohol problems, amongst other things.”

The HSPC website claims:

” In 2001, Ian Greer brought together eight churches of different denominations to help the poor and destitute in the community, by forming the Helderberg Street People’s Centre, now known as HSPC.

How very noble of Greer to devote so many years of his life to supporting the destitute and vulnerable people of South Africa.

But what’s this?

The Make A Difference Trust is proud to work with Mr Ian Greer and the highly dedicated team of carers and volunteers at the Helderberg Street Peoples Centre in the Western Cape: South Africa.

Through support from the Yves Guihannec Foundation as well as the many individuals who have donated funds towards this worthwhile programme, we have been able to truly make a significant difference in the lives of so many”.

Is this the same Yves Guihannec Foundation which is run by tax avoidance expert Robert Venables Q.C. and which has never produced any accounts for the Charities Commission?

It may well be.

… Ian Greer…

… lots of probing questions.

Lots of questions about Dolphin Square.

Lots of questions about Simon Milton.

Lots of questions about Derek Laud.

Lots of questions about vulnerable children.

Lots of questions about the Yves Guihannec Aids charity.

Lots of questions indeed.

At the time Greer, who thirty years later would achieve notoriety in the Cash for Questions scandal… was also working for the Mental Health Trust. In 1966 in a surprising detour from his political aspirations, Greer’s name had been passed to Lord Butler and Sir Evelyn Rothschild and he had accepted an appointment as National Director.

In his June 1995 statement to the Parliamentary Select Committee on Standards & Privileges Greer gave a more detailed account of his invitation to head up the Mental Health Trust, hand-picked by Lord Butler (former Home Secretary at the time Sir Ian Horobin MP’s prosecution for abuse of boys, promoted to Deputy Prime Minister in Macmillan’s Night of the Long Knives during) and Sir Evelyn De Rothschild.

Friday 20 November 2015

Two men have been charged with abusing 26 boys – some as young as five years old – at a Shefford boys’ home in the 1960s. The 25 boys were aged between five and 16.

The 18 sexual offences and 48 physical offences are alleged to have taken place at St Francis’ Boys Home, in Shefford, between 1963 and 1974, Bedfordshire Police said.

A 79-year-old man from Swaffham, Norfolk, is charged with 66 offences – 18 sexual and 48 physical – which are alleged to have taken place at St Francis Boys’ Home between 1963 and 1974.

 A 73-year-old man from Bedford has been charged with six sexual offences against four boys aged between 11 and 16.
 Both men will appear at Luton Magistrates’ Court on November 30.

SHEFFORD BOYS HOME: Mystery of the missing police files and Jimmy Savile clipping

July 17, 2013

A COMPLAINT to Bedfordshire police has been made by a former resident of a boys home concerning missing files relating to previous inquiries.

Former residents of St Francis Boys Home in Shefford, which was run by the Catholic Church, are taking a ‘class action’ against the church over claims they were both physically and sexually assaulted.

Fr John Ryan

As reported by Bedfordshire on Sunday, one of the priests alleged to have abused children in the 1950s and 1960s, Father John Ryan, was twice interviewed by police concerning these allegations, in 1997 and 2003.

This newspaper interviewed Father Ryan in 2006 and put these allegations to him but he made no comment. He died in 2008.

 We also reported that there were accusations that boys who had run away from the home were taken back by police officers, and subsequently received even greater punishment and abuse.

Damian Chittock, who won damages from the church concerning abuse, has complained about the missing police files.

Bedfordshire Police said they have received a complaint and it was being investigated.

The police started a new investigation this year, after more former boys complained about abuse at the former orphanage run by the Northampton Diocese of the Catholic Church.

Damian Chittock said: It seems to me incredible that two files concerning very damning allegations can go missing. I worry about how seriously the police are taking these matters, which have blighted people’s lives for decades.”

Steve Lowe, group editor, said:“I believe more in the cock-up than conspiracy theory but losing both sets of files is worrying.

We also found that there was a picture of Jimmy Savile attending a VE commemoration day in Shefford, in April 1985, in the local paper of the time. He visited the home often, as there is a Catholic Church attached and Savile was a committed Catholic.

“We went to Bedford library and it had every copy of this paper since it started publishing until the present day, apart from the first half of 1985, which had gone missing.

“Another cock-up I guess but they do seem to be mounting.”

October 13, 2013

…This was the second time Father Ryan had been arrested as he was interviewed in 1997, following earlier complaints of both physical and sexual abuse at the home.These records also went missing. The files are relevant to a ‘class action’ legal case being taken against the church by many other former boys at the home, as Father Ryan is now dead and the statements could have been used in court.

Mr Chittock said: “I find it incredulous that your officers cannot find these files, that not only

include witness statements from at least three victims, but also the interview with Father John Ryan and 40 old boys that were interviewed in the original investigation in the 1990s.”

Jimmy Savile link to ‘abuse’ orphanage prompts MP’s concern

20 February 2014

Ms Greening, MP for the south London constituency of Putney, Roehampton and Southfields, said in a letter to Mr McIntosh she had written to the Chief Constable “asking her to open a new investigation into the matter, including into a potential link with Jimmy Savile”.

She said she had also written to Home Secretary Theresa May over concerns Mr McIntosh had raised about the police inquiry into the orphanage and missing police files.

Mr McIntosh, who lives in Roehampton and went to St Francis in the early 1960s, said he was concerned about why files relating to a previous investigation went missing for months.

Bedfordshire Police started an investigation into new claims of abuse last May. In October police said it was thought the files had been destroyed but the following month police located the files.

Mr McIntosh said he wanted to know why the files from the 2002 investigation had gone missing and why the 2002 investigation failed to produce any prosecutions.

In a letter to Mr McIntosh, Ms Greening said she had written to Mrs May to “highlight your general concerns about previous investigations”.

Mr McIntosh said: “I hope it puts pressure on the police to be more efficient. There are a lot of questions to be answered. Why were the files not found?”

Since Savile’s death in 2011, hundreds of people around the country have reported abuse by the former presenter of Top of the Pops.

Mr McIntosh, who says he was physically abused at the home, said there are reports Savile was seen visiting the home in the 1950s.

He said he was also pleased Ms Greening had written to Ms May about the possibility of bringing a corporate manslaughter charge against the orphanage over the alleged abuse.

Last year (2013) a 77-year-old man, from Thetford, Norfolk, was arrested on suspicion of historical physical and sexual abuse at the home, while a 71-year-old man has been interviewed in connection with the investigation.

The home, which was run by the Northampton diocese of the Catholic church, closed in the mid-1970s.

The BBC has spoken to a number of former boys’ home residents who allege abuse at the hands of priests Fr John Ryan in the 1960s and Fr Wilfred Johnson in the 1950s.

The Northampton Diocese of the Catholic Church, which ran the home, has said it “deeply regretted” any hurt caused, but has stressed the “claims are not proven”.

June 16, 2013

Bedfordshire on Sunday can now reveal that Savile used to regularly visit St Francis Boys Home.

He frequently stayed at Henlow Grange health farm, so much so that a wing at the spa was named after him.

Local Shefford historian Audrey White, 83, was photographed with Savile at the Shefford VE remembrance celebration in 1985.

Audrey said: “We thought he might be at The Grange as we knew he was a frequent visitor so we phoned the health farm and he was there, so we invited him to our celebrations. Mr Savile was very nice and said he would come along. He arrived on Sunday morning with two other men and agreed to be photographed with me and my husband. He stayed for a while, drew a poster for us and even made a donation”.

The Grange was first opened by Leida Costigan in 1961 as The Beauty Farm School of beauty and physical culture, the first of its kind in the country.

Savile has been accused of sexually assaulting minors while at The Grange and of molesting a former chambermaid of the health farm, who was 18 at the time.

A new children’s ward in Stoke Mandeville hospital, funded by Savile, was named St Francis Ward.

Another former boy spoke to us this week about the abuse at the home, especially by Father Ryan.

We interviewed Father Ryan in 2006 where he said he remembered some of the boys named to him but would not comment on allegations of abuse.

He had been arrested in 2003 and never charged and died in 2008.

Neither the Catholic Church nor Henlow Grange would comment.

Jimmy was a regular visitor at Champneys health spa in Henlow, first visiting in the 1960s. He became a close friend of the owners, Stephen Purdew and his mother Dorothy. When a new bedroom wing was opened in 1985 it was named after him.

Stephen Purdew said: ‘He was a very significant family friend loved by everyone.

“Many people in the Henlow area will have very fond memories of this great man. My mother and I will miss him dearly.’” [Farewell to top TV Presenter, Biggleswade Today, 5 November 2011]

“On another occasion in the mid-80s we had two teenage girls from Yemen delivered to us. A fleet of cars arrived with the pair... I don’t know why they were over here , it was all very mysterious and whenever there were any problems or dramas we had to call this London doctor who acted as the go-between with their parents.

They ended up living with us for six months… ” (LRC p.151)

Child sex abuse victims got death threats after inquiry published emails

Survivors of child abuse say they have received death threats after the chairman of a Commons committee released scores of emails containing the identities of four abuse victims.

In a letter to the home secretary, the victims, who have been campaigning for changes to the independent child abuse inquiry, condemned the decision by Keith Vaz, chair of the home affairs select committee (HASC), to place the emails which contain the victims’ names and disparaging comments about them, on the committee website.

Sir Harold Haywood’s time as Chairman of Albany Trust

From 1974 to 1977

Haywood is chairman of Albany Trust – during this time he coaxed into existence a booklet entitled Paedophilia: Some Questions and Answers along with fellow Albany Trustees, members of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE’s Keith Hose and Tom O’Carroll) and the Paedophile Action League (PAL).

It was abandoned after a trustee saw a draft and branded it monstrous.”

One of the Booklet’s stated aims was to argue for the positive social benefits paedophiles brought to society:

“… about paedophilia, and to argue that those involved represent no special threat to society, but on the contrary are often a force for social good.”

1975-1976: Haywood & Napier, Albany Trust & Nucleus at Earl’s Court

Haywood was busy convening an exciting new ‘informal’ venture at Earl’s Court, gathering a group of colleagues together to form a ‘Working Party’

Paedophile Information Exchange’s Charles Napier took a leading role.

On Monday 22 August 1977, just before Harold Haywood departs Albany Trust to create the Prince’s Trust for Young People for Prince Charles, Charles Napier is discovered by Kensington & Chelsea Council to be the Treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange. The response of Nucleus … They require Napier to take a holiday to get over the stress and only resign his official position not his membership of PIE.

For Britain, the case raised embarrassing questions about its supervision of the colony, now known as an overseas territory.

The Martin Allen case linked to Westminster paedophile ring

 Diplomats, royals, government ministers, business executives and Margaret Thatcher were frequent visitors to Stoke Lodge in the late 1970s

stoke lodge martin allen

Stoke Lodge, the Australian high commissioner’s residence in London. The Allen family lived in a cottage in the grounds.

The Allen family lived in the caretaker’s five-bedroom cottage in the grounds, separated from Stoke Lodge by just a few metres across a wrought-iron low-level fence about one metre high.“It was quite secluded where we were; people didn’t have any reason to come down there unless they lived there, really,’’ Kevin tells Inquirer.

The well-heeled jewellery family, the De Beers, were neighbours, so, too, the Showerings, who owned Allied Breweries, and there was an Arab king to the right.

The street, Hyde Park Gate, is particularly famed as Sir Winston Churchill lived and died there.

We would often go into the garden and speak to visitors at Stoke Lodge,” says Kevin. “My mum and I even stood at the fence and chatted to Prince Charles and Princess Diana once when they visited.”

Martin took a photograph of Margaret Thatcher and her husband Denis when they were leaving one of the receptions at Stoke Lodge.

Kevin’s bedroom was at the far end of the cottage, but Martin’s was halfway along the hallway, directly overlooking the ambassadorial residence.Since November last year, when police started fresh inquiries into the historical abuse of children by the VIP pedophile gang, Kevin has started his own digging.

What has shocked him, apart from what he believes is an apparent disinterest of the police in re-examining Martin’s disappearance, are the staggering links the Australian high commission had to men who would later be revealed as some of the country’s most vile pedophiles.

Kevin says it was standard practice for the high commission to supplement its regular drivers with stand-in and casual drivers from a particular chauffeur firm located just across the Thames.

His research has revealed that this chauffeur firm had, at various times, employed Sidney Cooke, whose gang the “Dirty Dozen’’ would later be convicted and jailed for the torture and murder of three young boys in the 80s. Jimmy Savile’s chauffeur, David Smith, who killed himself last year before standing trial on sex charges, is believed to have had links to the same car company in the late 70s. Cooke and his pedophile cohort are understood to have been some of the drivers who would pick up young care-home boys and rent boys in the expensive cars and deliver them to organised ­orgies in Barnes, Pimlico and ­Kensington.

“All about at the same time as Martin’s disappearance, all of these pedophiles were linked to the (known pedophile) houses and a couple of them worked for the one car company that Australia House used as subbies if they didn’t have enough drivers,’’ says Kevin, blinking back tears.“Cooke and a few other infamous multi-murdering people worked for this car company.”

Prince’s Trust ‘covering its backside’ over child migrant abuse, David Hill says

Former Australian ABC managing director tells UK inquiry the youth charity set up by Prince Charles had child abuse files years before expressing abhorrence

10 July 2017

The former Australian ABC managing director David Hill has accused a youth charity set up by Prince Charles of “covering its backside” by denying it had known of serious abuse suffered by child migrants sent to Australia.

Hill told a UK national inquiry in London on Monday that the Prince’s Trust had recently criticised the Fairbridge Society over the physical and sexual abuse suffered by children who were sent to its farm schools in Australia.

Fairbridge had high-level connections in the UK, including royalty, when it was running the Australian schools in the 1950s and 60s. Fairbridge was absorbed in 2011 by the Prince’s Trust, a youth charity set up by Prince Charles in 1976

Hill told the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse on Monday that he was sent to a Fairbridge farm school at Molong in NSW in 1959.

In May the society heard from many former child migrants about the appalling treatment they received at institutions run by Fairbridge, the Christian Brothers in Western Australia and other church and charity groups.

It heard that children were forced to work barefoot on farms or in quarries, their schooling was inadequate, their food substandard and they were regularly beaten and in many cases sexually abused by their so-called carers.

Hill said Fairbridge had in the past routinely lied and denied any wrongdoing when confronted about the abuse. He said the Fairbridge files had been with the Prince’s Trust for the past six years and contained many references to abuse.

Hill noted that the inquiry had received a letter from the Prince’s Trust in recent days expressing its abhorrence of the abuse suffered at Fairbridge farm schools. But he said he suspected the trust of cynicism as it had not previously acknowledged such abuse despite it being in the records they held.

“I can’t help thinking that the Prince’s Trust is simply covering its backside,” he said.

Hill was one of nearly 7,000 British children in state or charity care who were sent to Australia up until the 1970s, supposedly to improve their prospects. He said a 1956 inspection of Australian institutions had resulted in a blacklist of places that were deemed “unfit for children”.

But because the Fairbridge Society had royal and aristocratic backing the blacklist was torn up and its farm schools continued to operate.

That meant “hundreds more children, including me and many as young as four”, continued to be sent into conditions “harsher than at adult prisons in Australia”, Hill said.

 THE founder of an Andover children’s charity – caged for a string of horrific child sex crimes – has had his sentence slashed by top judges in London.

As previously reported by the Advertiser, Ronald Nicholson Bennett, 73, of Launcelot Close, was jailed for 16 years in October for five crimes against two girls.

The offences took place more than three decades ago and caused “life-changing devastation” to the victims.

But after an appeal on Tuesday, three senior judges in London cut the “excessive ” term to 14 years.

Bennett founded the now-disbanded Brave Hearts children’s charity and had refused to go into the witness box to defend himself during his trial.

The idea that we keep the political and judicial systems apart in this country is sound. No one would want a crooked government being able to lean on the courts to make sure decisions always went the “right” way. But when you study this week’s decision to cut 10 years from the sentence handed down to Roy Whiting, the killer of Sarah Payne, you might come round to see the justice in my idea for a radical overhaul of our legal system.

To highlight the legal lunacy of the decision made in the High Court by Mr Justice Sir Peregrine (Simon)

Paedophile Army sergeant who raped a young girl has jail term cut by top judges

February 22, 2017

A paedophile army sergeant who raped one young girl and committed sex attacks on another has had his jail term cut by top judges.

Alan McCurry, 67, who served in the 4th Battalion Mercian Regiment, based in Farnborough, abused the victims during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

McCurry lived in South Cerney, Gloucestershire, after leaving the Mercians in 1982. And he later served as a chef in a Territorial Army division of the Merseyside-based King’s Regiment.

He was arrested after one of the victims plucked up the courage to go to the police in 2010.

The sick ex-soldier was jailed for 15 years in July 2015 at Colchester Military Courts Centre.

He was convicted of two counts of rape, four of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child.

 

Lord Justice Simon, at London’s Criminal Appeal Court, cut his sentence by a year.

Justice Michael Soole

Justice Holroyde / Sir Timothy Victor Holroyde

The judge, sitting with Mr Justice Holroyde and Mr Justice Soole, also heard McCurry’s bid to get his convictions overturned.

Lord Justice Simon commented:

“These were very serious offences with a devastating impact on the lives of the victims,” he added.

But aspects of the 15-year sentence were “unlawful” and the overall term had to be cut by a year.

British court refuses to extradite suspected American paedophile

UK judges say Roger Giese, a fugitive from FBI since 2007, can only be sent to US after assurances his human rights will not be breached

The two judges at the high court in London made it clear that if no assurance was given, they would refuse to hand over Roger Giese, 40, to stand trial in California, where he is charged with sexually abusing a boy under the age of 14 from 1998 until 2002.

The former choirmaster has been living in a village in Hampshire under a different name and working for a PR company.

Giese is wanted in Orange County, California, for allegedly committing “lewd acts” with a child. He is alleged to have befriended the boy in 1998, when he was working as a voice coach for the All-American Boys Chorus. He fled the US eight years ago just as he was about to stand trial.

An extradition request from the US was certified by the Home Office in May 2014, and Giese was arrested on 4 June last year. But magistrates court district judge Margot Coleman refused the request last April.

Lord Justice Aikens and Mr Justice Holroyde stated in a joint written judgment that Coleman was right to conclude that extradition would be “inconsistent” with Giese’s ECHR rights. The judges said that if no assurance was given “in due time”, the US government appeal for the right to extradite must be dismissed.

According to a Daily Mirror investigation, Giese set up home with a new partner in the Hampshire countryside. There was no suggestion she knew about his past. Together, the pair built a PR company with clients including the travel firm (Savile-linked)Thomas Cook.

Rantzen was also instrumental in persuading parliamentarians to provide funding to the untested charity.  Panellists also talked about the role of chance in the establishment and success of a charity.

Report: Bill Clinton Wasn’t Only One to Go to ‘Sex Slave Island,’ Hillary Went with Him–‘Six Times’

The source for this claim is Erik Prince, the founder of the security firm Blackwater (yes, that one.) In an exclusive interview at Breitbart News, Prince first states that the NYPD is “ready to make arrests in Weiner case.”

Prince pivots from the Weiner laptop investigation to claiming that Hillary Clinton accompanied Bill Clinton and billionaire convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to “sex island” (aka “sex slave island”).

“They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times.”

link

Mr. Clinton flew on the billionaire’s convicted paedophile, Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous jet more than a dozen times — sometimes with a woman whom federal prosecutors suspect of procuring underage sex victims for Mr. Epstein. Fox News reported Friday that records show Mr. Clinton declined Secret Service protection on at least five flights.

The network’s investigation reveals Mr. Clinton flew on the Boeing 727 “Lolita Express” 26 times, more than doubling the previously reported 11 trips.

Bill Clinton … associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile.

Why would a former president associate with a man like that?” said Conchita Sarnoff of the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, Fox reported. Ms. Sarnoff also authored a book on Mr. Epstein titled “TrafficKing.”

Mr. Epstein was arrested in 2005 and signed a plea agreement in 2007 with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, accepting a single charge of soliciting prostitution. He agreed to a 30-month sentence, registered as a “Tier 1” sex offender with the U.S. Virgin Islands and paid dozens of young girls

Inspired by journalist Dick Bellringer of the Andover Advertiser and with the help of numerous local businesses and media partners, so far we have awarded a Pride of Andover Award to more than 100 local people!

Since 2007 we have been honoured to have the founder of ChildLine and The Silver Line, Dame Esther Rantzen present the awards.

The journalist and TV presenter has commented about the community spirit of Andover and the extraordinary people she has met over the years.

You should know you have a town to be proud of with outstanding citizens who really do care for each other,” Esther told a packed audience at The Lights in 2012.

The original charges relate to offences which allegedly took place in Hampshire and East Anglia between 1983 and 1997.

The recent allegations are said to have taken place in Hampshire between 1981 and 1987.

24 May 2007

THIS week the Andover Advertiser is proud to launch the first Pride of Andover Awards, presented by TV broadcaster and journalist Esther Rantzen.

Sponsored by HSA and Stannah, and part of Andover Vision, with backing from Testway Housing, Test Valley Community Services and Test Valley Borough Council, the aim is to honour individuals who give up their time to help others or improve the community – or those who excel in their chosen activity.

Ron, a retired security officer at the Chantry Centre shopping precinct in Andover, had eight volunteers working for him, from a planning engineer to teenagers, as well as the unstinting help of his wife Sue and Joe Scicluna, the editor of the Andover Advertiser

The money is drawn from direct donations as well as fundraising activities, such as holding duck races, and working as car park attendants and security assistants for special occasions at Highclere Castle and events such as the lawnmower races.

Rantzen hired Val Howarth to run Childline.

Val Howarth was a social worker in Lambeth, of all places

Throughout the 80s and early 90s, both Islington and Lambeth borough councils ran children’s homes that had been infiltrated by paedophiles.

Islington had paedophiles, pimps, or child pornographers in all 11 of its homes. Lambeth had a paedophile ring operating in up to 25 of its homes, and over 200 children were believed to have been victims of sexual abuse.”

Esther Rantzen’s sister Prisccilla Taylor, was also a social worker in Lambeth and was trained by Val Howarth. Howarth was blamed for a child’s horrific murder. (Jasmine Beckford)

She was social services director in Brent at the time.

howarth loses job

Article below written by Esther Rantzen:

…in 1984, another little child died, in Brent. It was such a horrific murder that it led to an enquiry …. heartbreaking details of the torture she suffered throughout the few short years of her life

The director of social services, Valerie Howarth, was immediately blamed by Brent council and punished. Until then Ms Howarth had been regarded as a high-flyer in the world of social work, but she left Brent, and lost the prestigious job she had been lined up for as head of Cambridgeshire’s social services. By 1986 she was unemployed.

That was the year I launched ChildLine. As chairman of a fledgling charity I knew I needed to find a skilled chief executive …

My sister Priscilla Taylor is a social worker and I asked her advice. Valerie Howarth had trained Priscilla when they both worked in the London Borough of Lambeth. My sister reminded me that in spite of her notoriety Valerie was a skilled and experienced social worker. Would she be prepared…to go back into…child protection, …? I met Valerie and asked her. She thought about it, and agreed.

At the last moment a colleague came to me and begged me not to make the appointment: “It will destroy ChildLine” she predicted. When the appointment was announced, one tabloid newspaper ran an attacking headline accusing ChildLine of stupid callousness, in employing “the Beckford director”. I rang the editor who agreed to run an interview with Valerie, to talk about her hopes for ChildLine. … In the event the interview was favourable.

Grandson of Lord and Lady Mountbatten on his family’s long relationship with India

 

Christmas 1968, outside the front door of Broadlands, the last Viceroy of India’s home in Hampshire

Christmas 1968, outside the front door of Broadlands, the last Viceroy of India’s home in Hampshire

Ashley Hicks, son of Lady Pamela Hicks and grandson of Lord and Lady Mountbatten, on his family’s relationship with India: From his grandfather holidaying there with the Prince of Wales to his grandmother’s platonic love affair with the former Prime Minister of India… And the new film, Viceroy’s House, about his grandparents, starring Hugh Bonneville

This was Christmas 1968, outside the front door of Broadlands, my grandparents’ home in Hampshire, where we spent every Christmas until my grandfather died. I am the five-year-old boy who is not looking at the camera but instead admiring his cousin Philip Knatchbull, who because he was older, was my great hero.

In the picture are a mixture of relatives and staff. Next to me is my sister, Edwina, and in the centre of the group under the doorway  is my grandfather, Louis Mountbatten. My mother, Lady Pamela Hicks, is at the very end on the left. (My dad had been standing next to her but took this photograph, hence the gap.)

My mother had  a conventional early childhood, but then her parents took her out of school and said, ‘We need you to come to India. You’ll be able to help us to win over the young people, and it will be a marvellous experience for you.’

My family has a long relationship with India and when my grandfather went there in 1921 with the Prince of Wales, my grandmother Edwina (who was dead by the time this photo was taken) bought herself a ticket to Delhi, aged 20, which is fairly brave.

The Prince of Wales even lent them his room to have a drink in so my grandfather could propose.

They returned to India in March 1947, when Mountbatten became Viceroy. It was the great dramatic event of my mother’s life and she was unique among any Viceroy’s children in that she saw some Indian culture.

Lady Pamela Hicks with her daughters India and Edwina in 2007

They had Indian food in the Viceroy’s house for the first time and my grandmother insisted on at least half the guests at meals being Indian.

Jawaharlal Nehru (third from left), leader of the Indian independence movement and later the first Prime Minister of India

Prime Minister Nehru was my grandmother’s great friend – they had a platonic love affair. Nehru’s sister told me that it was impossible that he and my grandmother could have had sex because  he was impotent – and had been for years.

I think that is probably true, but they had  this intense, romantic feeling for each other.

Last year we had dinner with Hugh Bonneville, who is playing my grandfather in the film Viceroy’s House.

The first thing Hugh said was, ‘Lady Pamela, I have to apologise because your father looked like a movie star and I’m afraid I don’t.’

After lunch, my mum said to him, ‘Now Hugh,  just salute, will you?’  So he saluted, and she said, ‘Oh no, a little bit quicker, a bit nearer the forehead…’   She was trying to get him to do a proper naval officer’s salute, the way that my grandfather would have done – it was the only thing she was really concerned about.

Lord Mandelson of children’s charity NSPCC & in convicted paedophile’s Jeffrey Epstein’s phone book

Peter Mandelson lobbied Tony Blair for alleged paedophile Lord Janner to receive a peerage, it has been claimed.Janner, 86, was elevated to the House of Lords six years after being publicly accused of child sex abuse in a high-profile court case.The Labour grandee, who escaped historic child sex abuse charges last month because he has dementia, has also boasted how his ‘friend’ Gordon Brown helped him get into the Lords.Considering it would be ‘splendid’ to be made a peer, he consulted his ‘valued friend’ Lord Mandelson, who told him: ‘

You’ll have to talk to Tony. I’ll ask him.’Janner made an appointment to see the then-Labour leader in his Commons office a week later.Lord Mandelson emerged as he was going in and smilingly said to him: ‘I’ve just been reminding Tony of the reason for your visit.’Mr Blair reportedly told Janner during the meeting: ‘I shall do my best to get you there [the Lords]. It’s not just that I’m fond of you, which I am. It’s not just that you’ve helped me a lot, which you have. It’s because you deserve it. But I can’t give you any guarantees. If we win the election, there should not be a problem.’

On the day Labour won the May 1997 general election, Cherie Blair hugged Janner and offered words of condolence over his wife’s recent death. However, he heard nothing more about his longed-for peerage so spoke again to Lord Mandelson, who said he would ‘keep an eye on it’.

He said he also raised the subject with his ‘old friend’ Mr Brown, who had just become chancellor.Janner claimed that Mr Brown replied: ‘Hasn’t Tony said that he’s going to do it? I’ll have a word with him about it … I have a special relationship with Tony and can talk to him about anything.’ His name appeared ‘soon after’ on the first list of new peers appointed by the Labour Government.

Child abuse: Jersey stinks of Zandvoort

TORTURE CELLS & CHILD SKULL IN THE CONCRETE FLOOR OF A CHILDREN’S HOME IN JERSEY

9.3.08 – The Werkgroep Morkhoven’ preliminary inquiry shows 90% possibilities that the “Aviemore” section has been the first Zandvoort studio for black & white photographs of baby rapes. 160 former boarders have testified of abuse at Haut de la Garenne. All leads to believe some of the might be identified in the Zandvoort, which shows photographs of 90.081 victims, of which 70% a clearly criminal…

———

The “Jersey Industrial School” opened in 1867 in a three storey Victorian building; rue de la Pouclée-et-des-Quatre-Chemins, in St Martin, a small port of Jersey. It was aiming at welcoming 100 boarders from all parts of the island, which has no more than 118 square kilometres. It was an avant-garde project: the boys of Jersey would be able to follow primary school until they where 13, to become good farm and factory workers.

The school was renamed the “Home for Boys” in 1900 and offered its pupils carry on their schooling in a nearby naval training centre. Education was strict. Mothers would readily bring their children for a couple of days in the remanding wing, as punishment for having stolen a penny.

During the Second World War, the German army occupied the school as a signalling station. The level of the earth around the school was increased, in a way to block the ground floor windows, which became the cellar area, chopping of a storey from the Victorian building. The complaints of abuse were registered, but were not taken seriously and the islanders preferred to trust their local schools.

But St Martin had only around 3000 thousand inhabitants, and all its children, added to all Jersey’s orphans, only left 60 to fill the boarding school. The local girl’s school and the only crèche of the island where closed, the girls and the abandoned babies brought to the boys’ school, which was rebaptised “Haut de la Garenne”, French for upper rabbit warren.

The home was divided into four sections: ‘Aviemore’ for the babies; ‘Claymore’ for the young children; ‘Dunluce’ for the older ones and ‘Baintree’, the cellar area, where lived the “naughty children”. It was the lower part of rabbit warren, which shows Marc Dutroux as an amateur.

Over 160 former boarders have complained of maltreatments on a period of 40 years, until the closure of the school in 1986. The staff would find any excuse to lock the children naked, in the total darkness of a “punishment cell”, for hours, sometimes days. They were then taken to wash, having to lower the head, to pass through a small door that looked as that of a cupboard, but led to communal bath. The where dived in cold water, sometimes twenty at a time. They were then handcuffed and brought to one of the three joint torturing chambers, where the guests of the school’s staff, sometimes foreigners, were waiting for them.

– “The things that happened there are indescribable – the most cruel, sadistic and evil acts you could think of”, said a former pupil.
– “The abuse was anything from rape and torture. It was men and women who abused us. It happened every night and it happened to everyone”, said another.

Patricia Thornton: “It’s awful if it’s true but I saw no evidence of it when I was there. “A former boarder, arrived at the age of 12, said a caretaker was waking him up at night, telling him: “there is someone to see you”. He was bringing him to Senator Krichefski and introduced him in these words: “Here’s a boy for you, Sir”.

Senator Krichefski was at the head of several Jersey government committees. He was founding managing director of ITV’s Channel Television and founder of the Jersey Progressive Party whose successors still run the island. The children called him the Fat Man and he has been going to Haut de la Garenne until he died in 1974. He would introduce himself to his victims saying: “I’m going to teach you to be a good boy. You’ve been wicked and no one wants you. Your parents don’t want you – that’s why you’re here.’

Patricia Thornton aged 85 and retired in 1973 said: “It’s awful if it’s true but I saw no evidence of it when I was there. I just find it difficult to believe that all these horrible things were going on and I knew nothing about it”.

All the former pupils of Haut de la Garenne talk of children disappearing after having been snatched from their beds, of runaways who would have emigrated, which would only have been possible either by swimming, or with the help of a child trafficker. They also all talk of serial suicides, liable to be murders, which in any case leave the corps of a child as evidence. They talk of screaming and the banging they could hear from a room where a child was locked with adults. The next days, the child was found hanged at the branch of a tree. They believe in suicides, but it is very unlikely that a child has the strength, after a night of torture, to find a rope, climb at a tree and, without trembling, make the necessary sliding node to hang himself.

Eight senior officials have been of the home staff, but none of them had seen anything abnormal. In 1974 one of them, Charles Smith said: “The remand wing at Haut de la Garenne is the only place, other than prison, for juveniles on remand. At the home there are only two detention rooms and you cannot just lock up children for long periods.”

In 1981, the home employed 17 people, among which 2 part-time, for 40 children and was reported “uneconomical”. In 1986, there were only 30 children left, which supposes 2 per sadist. The little door of the torturing cells was bricked-up and the school closed.

The fight to have the case inquired took 60 years and luckily went through, mainly thanks to Senator Stuart Syvret (44) then Minister for Health and a Social Affairs who was only advised of the Haut de la Garenne practices in 2006.

The police officer Lenny Harper had worked in Belfast, Glasgow and London before he arrived in the island. He was taking a relatively limited risk, since he planned to retire in September 2008. He started a discreet an inquiry in April 2006. He studied all the complaints for child abuse related to Jersey’s institutions, comprising faults of procedure, having allowed alleged children rapists to escape from justice. Three monstrosities appeared.

The Victorian building had been abandoned, only used to featured as “Bureau des étrangers” in the television serial Bergerac.It was due to be transformed in a youth hostel, which has opened in 2004. The men working on the site found heavy shackles mounted on a wooden block. They could not be the only ones to be horrified, in such a small port. Yet, the authority failed to raise that it did not act of a normal school supply and the case was closed.

In parallel, a personality, which the press has not named, had prosecuted a Haut de la Garenne former boarder, under the charge of blackmail, for being threatened to be expose for having regularly abused him at the children’s home. The alleged victim was condemned for blackmail in 2003, and the alleged rapist was treated as a victim, without having to answer any question. What strikes in this cynics, is that it has not been invented by Jersey, but by the Zandvoort network. The first case known was 1982, when Michel Krief had shown one of its French branches. The second case known was in 1992, when the leader the Werkgroep Morkhoven was on the traces of Belgian, Dutch and Portuguese branches.

The third scandalous Jersey case had happened Victoria College to whom the Haut de la Garenne was supplying young recruits. The maths teacher, Andrew Jervis-Dykes, was jailed in 1999 for indecently assaulting six pupils who he plied with alcohol then abused in their beds during Naval Combined Cadet Force yachting.He had pleaded guilt and was condemned to four years prison, as an isolated predator, as are all the members of the Zandvoort network, which includes Marc Dutroux.
But in Jersey, Stephen Sharp, a former chief education officer, had made a report, showing that Jack Hydes, headmaster of the naval school, had instructed his staff not to discuss allegations of child-abuse of the maths teacher, which had surfaced in 1992, then in 1994 and failed to notify the police. If the correct procedure had been followed, Jervis-Dykes would have been suspended and perhaps arrested in 1992. It would have protected six young recruits from being raped in 1999.

In June 2007, Senator Syvret asked the government why such a report had been kept secret. The Senator Verbert, Education Minister, answered the head-teacher and deputy had been punished by dismissal. The decision not to publish the report was taken to “protect those children”.

Senator Syvret was not satisfied with the answer and exposed the report that been promised to make public. The government sacked him on 11 September 2007, following a vote of ‘no confidence’, betraying the exasperation of all the senior officials who becomes deaf, dumb and blind as they face the sexual exploitation of children.

Two months later, Officer Harper launched an international campaign to ask the former pupils of Haut de la Garenne if they ever noticed anything wrong. The answer was massive.

Eddy, the most famous British sniffer dog who spots the smell of death through concrete, had arrived. He traced the skull of a child, which was taken out of a cement cover on 23 February 2008. He has also smelled death through the bricked-up door, which hid the communal bath, the torture chambers and more shackles.

Senator Walker, Chief Minister, accuses Senator Syvret of incompetence, assuring he had “produced no evidence”, as if the report had not been enough damning to show the cover-up of a scandal by senior officials.

There are 90% possibilities that Scotland Yard will identify former residents of Haut de la Garenne among the 90.081 victims of child pornography and acts of barbarism in Zandvoort file. Everything fits with its worst pictures: The forty years period of during which the crimes were committed, thus could explain the black and white photographs as well as ones in colour. Further more, the described perversity of the staff allow supposing that ‘Aviemore’ might have been a ‘Zandvoort photo studio’ because the places liable to provide so many black and white pictures of Northern babies as they are raped are rare.

Officer Harper will certainly inquire the possibility of meeting between the Senators Krichefski andBrongersma, Dutch member of the Zandvoort network, who used to buy pictures of such crimes. Both senators are of the same generation and of the same social class. Both had settled the same system of sexual exploitation of children in state institutions and obtained the same judicial dysfunctions, as everywhere the network passes.

Jersey is ideal for this kind of industry. It is an Anglo-Norman island, ruled by an oligarchy, neither part of the United Kingdom, nor the European Union, which enables it to avoid a lot of controls. It is paradise to evade taxes, offering a privileged holiday destination, discreet and unavailable without a solid bank account. St Martin is a port, like two other ports involved in the network: Zandvoort and Madeira. It is easier for children to “run off and emigrate”.

A trapdoor leading down to a windowless room holding a single chair, and shackles were discovered during the refurbishment of the care home at the centre of the Jersey child abuse scandal, it has been claimed.

The sinister findings were allegedly uncovered four years ago when the property Haut de la Garenne in the east of the island was converted into a youth hostel after lying empty for 18 years.

The building, where a human skull was unearthed on Saturday, is the subject of an intense police search operation amid fears that the bodies of up to seven children could be buried there.

Two builders working on the site spoke of the alleged finds but the shackle claim was strenuously denied by a Jersey government source.

Robert Boutillier, one of the builders working at the home said: “We found some things that would send a chill down your spine.

“We found some shackles lying around the grounds.

“I picked them up. They were heavy shackles mounted on a wooden block. It was gruesome.

“We also found a pile of about five large canes. They had been removed from inside the building.”

Another builder from Houze Construction, who did not want to be named, said: “It was spooky, I felt like the place was haunted.

“There were shackles lying around. God knows what else was in there, I shudder to think.

“In one room there was a trapdoor leading down to this room which was pitch black. Inside was just this chair. I felt sick.”

But a government source insisted: “Nothing of that nature at all was found at the site.”

Police teams have focused on the home’s bricked-up cellar but were forced to suspend work over fears the structure may collapse. But forensic specialists will return to the scene on Wednesday.

News of the alleged findings came as child abuse offences – and claims that they were covered up – were linked to the island’s top public school and another Jersey care home.

Image result for maths teacher, Andrew Jervis-Dykes

Maths teacher Andrew Jervis-Dykes was jailed in April 1999 for indecently assaulting six pupils at Victoria College who he plied with alcohol then abused in their beds during Naval Combined Cadet Force yachting trips between 1984 and 1993.

According to an independent report into the case, allegations about Jervis-Dykes surfaced in 1992 then again in 1994. Both times, the school’s headmaster Jack Hydes failed to notify the police or investigate further, the report said.

Former chief education officer of Buckinghamshire, Stephen Sharp, who conducted the inquiry, said Mr Hydes instructed his staff not to discuss the allegations.

He accused Mr Hydes and his deputy Piers Bakers – who was in charge of pupils alongside Jervis-Dykes on one yachting trip – of putting the interests of the college and supporting a colleague above protecting its pupils. The pair subsequently resigned from the school.

“If the correct procedure had been followed, it is most likely that Jervis-Dykes would have been suspended and perhaps arrested in 1992,” Mr Sharp said.

Senator Stuart Syvret, who is highly critical of the Jersey government’s record on child protection, accused officials of sweeping the issue under the carpet and demanded to know why the report had been kept secret.

“The reaction of the political establishment was to sweep this under the carpet and keep the veneer of respectability.

“This is just another example of concealment and cover up. They did the bare minimum, prosecuted one perpetrator.”

The Education Minister Senator Mike Verbert said the headteacher and deputy had been punished by dismissal. He defended keeping the report private: “The decision not to publish the report was taken to protect those children.”

Mr Syvret said he would write to Justice Minister Jack Straw later this week to ask for independent judges to oversee any possible prosecution in relation to Haut de la Garenne.

“I am going to ask him – in relation to the current child protection controversy – to appoint independent judges and prosecution,” he said.

Mr Syvret claimed there was evidence of abuse at schools and care homes across the island.

Another inquiry focused on Jersey’s elite Victoria College after the head of maths, Andrew Jervis-Dykes, was jailed for four years in April 1999 for indecently assaulting a pupil. In his report, Stephen Sharp, a former chief education officer for Buckinghamshire, criticised senior staff and school governors, who included bailiff Sir Philip Bailhache, for failing to act speedily or adequately. It had taken 15 years for the teacher to be caught and Sharp concluded: “The handling of the complaint was more consistent with protecting a member of staff and the college’s reputation than safeguarding the best interests of pupils.”

STATES police officers tried to cover up abuse allegations against an ex-Victoria College teacher, a former detective has claimed.

Speaking at the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry, Anton Cornelissen said he began investigating claims into abuse by former teacher Andrew Jervis-Dykes in 1996 but that he was hampered as several members of the force attempted to hide the abuse allegations.

Mr Cornelissen claimed that crucial evidence went missing and was subsequently found in a colleague’s locker.

He also alleged that a former deputy head of the school, John Le Breton, who had left the college and become a Jurat, intervened by complaining to the Law Officers’ Department when an arrest warrant was issued.

The panel heard that Jurat Le Breton allegedly questioned the facts of the case and asked the Law Officers not to issue a warrant.

DSC_0065
It was claimed that former Victoria College deputy head John Le Breton, later a Jurat, asked the Law Officers not to issue an arrest warrant against teacher Andrew Jervis-Dykes

Mr Cornelissen said: ‘He had sight of it [the warrant] and he disputed the facts. I think he complained to the Attorney General or the Bailiff over the facts of the case to try to get the warrant stopped.’

Mr Cornelissen also claimed that when Mr Le Breton was still deputy head, he had been told about alleged abuse by a pupil but had not done anything and had ‘in effect bullied at least one pupil to not make a complaint against Andrew Jervis-Dykes’.

The inquiry yesterday entered a new phase in which it will examine the handling of the 2008 police investigation into historical sexual abuse, named Operation Rectangle.

Mr Cornelissen, who is originally from the UK, moved to Jersey in 1993 and was seconded to the Child Protection Team in 1996.

He began investigating claims that Jervis-Dykes had abused several pupils, but said that the only person who supported the investigation was Barry Faudemer, the then head of the Child Protection Team.

He added that many of his colleagues in the force were ex-Victoria College pupils who did not want their school ‘dragged through the mud’ and therefore did not offer any support to the investigation.

Mr Cornelissen said that a short-time later, his secondment was ended when he refused to pass on confidential information about the Victoria College investigation to another colleague – Derek Upton – who was not part of the inquiry.

The case was dropped shortly after Detective Sergeant Roger Pryke took over the Child Protection Team.

However, Mr Cornelissen, who has since retired, and Mr Faudemer began reinvestigating the case about a year later, but claimed that many of the problems remained.

He said: ‘It harped back to the old thing that “we don’t want Victoria College investigated”.’

He added that he was ‘mortified’ to think that potential victims had not been contacted in a year after he was taken off the initial investigation.

During the second stage of the Victoria College inquiry, Mr Cornelissen claimed that evidence went missing from his desk, including pictures, slides and an index box containing vital witness information. He said that the index box was later found in Roger Pryke’s locker.

Mr Cornelissen said: ‘The index box was very important because up to that point there was nowhere else that had the victim witness details, and I had made a summary.

‘It was a crucial bit of evidence and of course it went missing.

‘I don’t know how it ended up in Roger Pryke’s locker – it was in a large brown evidence sack.’

Jervis-Dykes was jailed for four years in 1999.

Jurat John Lyndon Le Breton who is an evidenced mate and dinner chum of one of the defendant newspaper’s senior directors and has been for years allowed by the Bailiff’s Office to decide on evidence in our defamation case. Not to mention, of course, Le Breton also being a ‘man’ put forward by a former Education President to become said Jurat (lay judge) despite having been proven to happily look the other way on evidence against his predatory paedophile friend and Victoria College colleague Andrew Jervis-Dykes.

Image result for children from islington post cards haut de la garenne

Postcards from Jersey, including one of Gorey Castle, next to Haut de la Garenne home. Children from Islington home were sent to Jersey.

I met the frightened policeman at an isolated country restaurant, many miles from his home and station. Detective Constable Peter Cook had finally despaired, and decided to blow the whistle to a reporter.

He was risking his career, so made me scribble my notes into a tiny pad beneath the tablecloth.

He had uncovered a vicious child sex ring, with victims in both Britain and the Channel Islands, and he wanted me to get his information to police abuse specialists in London.

Incredibly, he claimed that his superiors had barred him from alerting them.

He feared a cover-up: many ring members were powerful and wealthy. But I did not think him paranoid: I specialised in exposing child abuse scandals and knew, from separate sources, of men apparently linked to this ring.

They included an aristocrat, clerics and a social services chief. Their friends included senior police officers.

Repeatedly, inquiries by junior detectives were closed down, so I, a journalist, was asked to convey confidential information from one police officer to others.

Concerned police secretly confirmed that several Islington workers were believed “networkers”, major operators in the supply of children for abuse and pornography.

Some of these were from the Channel Islands or regularly took Islington children there on unofficial visits. In light of the grisly discoveries at Haut de la Garenne, the link now seems significant,

Feb 29 2016

A CONVICTED sex offender has been banned by a court from having unsupervised contact with girls.

John Youatt, aged 68, was allegedly caught in a car with an 11-year-old female in breach of a previous court order.

Prosecutors said he was banned from contacting boys but admitted that the document was ambiguous about girls.

Youatt, who has been on remand for a month, appeared at Plymouth Crown Court from Exeter Prison via videolink.

The defendant, of Coltishall Close, Ernesettle, denied breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order between November 2013 and last month.

He was allegedly in company of the girl in a private vehicle without her parents.

The indefinite order was imposed in 2010 by a judge at city magistrates for indecency with a 12-year-old boy in Plymouth.

He was sentenced to five and a half years in prison at Exeter Crown Court in 1999.

Nigel Hall, for the Crown Prosecution Service, offered no evidence against Youatt on the breach.

He added: “Because of the ambiguity in the order, the Crown’s view is that it would be difficult to convince the jury that there has been a breach.

“The important thing is that all children and young people are protected by this order.”

Mr Hall added that Youatt did not oppose changing the order to clearly include girls.

Judge Ian Lawrie recorded a not guilty verdict on the breach and ruled that the order be changed.

Youatt will now be released from prison.

Plymouth sex offender banned from unsupervised contact with children

A SEX offender has been banned by a court from having unsupervised contact with children.

Plymouth magistrates put a sexual offences prevention order on 63-year-old John Youatt after hearing teenage boys had been visiting his home in Ernesettle.

Youatt, of Coltishall Close, did not contest the order, which will run indefinitely.

He was sentenced to five and a half years in jail in 1999 by a judge at Exeter Crown Court for indecency with a 12-year-old in Plymouth.

Magistrates ruled an order was necessary to protect the public from serious sexual harm.

The four prohibitions ban him being in the company of anybody under 18 in public or in private, excepting on public transport.

He is also prevented from contacting or attempting to contact anybody under that age by any means save in the course of a ‘legitimate business transaction’.

Youatt must not ‘sleep, remain or reside’ in any home where there is a child unless with the express permission of the authorities or the parents — and those parents must have prior knowledge of his previous convictions.

He is also banned from taking part in any recreational or voluntary activity which is likely to lead to unsupervised contact with boys under the age of 18.

Tom Bradnock, applying for the order on behalf of Devon & Cornwall Police, told the court that Youatt had ‘been in the company of teenage boys at his home address’.

Andrew Cooper, for Youatt, confirmed he would not contest the order.

Youatt is already signing the Sex Offenders’ Register.

Perverted writer jailed

A writer who planned to kidnap, torture, and sadistically kill young boys for sexual pleasure was jailed for 10 years at the Old Bailey.

His friend, John Youatt, 39, of Exeter, Devon, was jailed for three years.

He was acquitted of plotting to murder boys, but convicted of the other charges.

Call for politician to resign

lewisr

A SERVING politician found to have lied to the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry should resign if the States is to maintain the confidence of Islanders, according to one of his backbench colleagues.

This week the inquiry panel concluded in their report that former Home Affairs Minister Deputy Andrew Lewis had lied under oath while giving evidence to them about the suspension of ex-police chief Graham Power.

They also found he had lied to the States about the matter.

Unlike members of the public, States Members cannot be prosecuted for perjury for lying to the Assembly or an inquiry.

However, Deputy Jackie Hilton, who represents the same district – St Helier No 3 and 4 – as Deputy Lewis, believes that that is not good enough and that her political colleague has damaged the reputation of the Assembly.

‘I do not want to be tarred with the same brush.

‘If we want to maintain the confidence of the public in the States Assembly there is only one thing Deputy Andrew Lewis can do,’ she said.

Deputy Lewis has always denied lying and says he made three factual errors when talking on the record about the suspension, none of which were deliberate and all of which he has since corrected.

The Privileges and Procedures Committee, which deals with alleged breaches of the States Members’ code of conduct, is currently looking into the matter.

Asked this week to clarify which document he had been referring to when he wrongly said he had seen a Metropolitan Police report which supported Mr Power’s suspension, the Deputy said it was a letter from former States chief executive Bill Ogley, which attached a report from the then deputy police chief containing extracts from the Met Police report.

Deputy Hilton, who was present in the States during the in-camera debate on the suspension during which Deputy Lewis is said to have lied, said, however, that the inquiry had supported its conclusions with clear evidence. She added that the Deputy’s evidence to the inquiry included ‘massive contradictions’.

‘He [Deputy Lewis] should step down as a States Member in my personal opinion,’ said Deputy Hilton.

Woman reveals Jimmy Savile tried to molest her at Jersey care home

Woman reveals Jimmy Savile tried to molest her at Jersey care home

A woman has revealed how Jimmy Savile tried to molest her at a Jersey care home years before he was unmasked as a paedophile.

Sex abuse victim Madeleine Vibert, 57, was a teenager when the TV presenter visited the infamous Haut de la Garenne children’s home in the early 1970s.

She told Sky News: “He visited us several times, around Easter each year, and wanted us to join him on his charity walks.

 

Ms Vibert said she told police about Savile during a police investigation 10 years ago and he denied visiting the home, but an old photograph in the Jersey Evening Post newspaper proved he had.

Detectives investigated complaints about Savile’s Jersey visits from the time, but found no evidence to prosecute him.

Ms Vibert escaped the TV star’s attentions, but was regularly sexually and physically abused by staff and visitors during 14 years at Haut de la Garenne.

She gave evidence to the independent inquiry which this week published a damning report on decades of abuse at Jersey’s children’s homes.

She said: “It was a brutal regime. If you wet the bed at night they would make you get up and wash the sheets and hang them out to dry. If you were caught talking you would have to stand outside the dormitory for hours.

“If you were really naughty you are locked up in a cell, what they called a secure room, for several days with a potty for a toilet. Often you were naked and everyone could see you through the window.”

She and others were regularly picked out for sexual abuse, often taken to an office without any explanation. If they complained, nothing was done.

She said: “I complained to other staff, to people at the Children’s Service department in St Helier and others, but nobody listened.

“They said: ‘Don’t make up such stories, no-one else is complaining’. So I just stopped. At first I was angry, but then I said to the others that we just had to be strong for each other.”

Ms Vibert said she ran away many times, sleeping in garden sheds, but was always found and put in a police cell before being taken back to the home where she would be punished and often left with bruises.

Her terrible life at Haut de la Garenne, where her younger sister also lived for many years, is described in her book They Stole My Innocence which was published last year.

She said: “There was a sort of swimming pool in the basement where they told us to get in and where up to ten men were always waiting to abuse us.

“If you kicked and screamed to avoid going in they would tie you to a wooden chair and abuse you anyway.”

 The findings of the investigation into historical child abuse in Jersey are due to be published on July 3rd.

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

Statement of Former Deputy Chief Police Officer Lenny Harper.

Former DCO Lenny Harper.

“With the report of the Committee of Inquiry being delivered on 3rd July I have over the past few weeks been contacted by various media outlets in the United Kingdom and Jersey. Each of them has asked if I would be willing to speak to them when the report is delivered.

Whilst none of us know what will be contained within the report, I feel more confident in being able to predict the different ways in which the contents will be dealt with by media in the UK and the local media in Jersey.

Jersey’s media, and admittedly some have been worse than others, have continually sought to protect the image of the Jersey establishment to the detriment of the abuse survivors. There have been many ways in which they have sought to do this. One of the most used tactics has been to discredit anyone who was seen to be acting in the best interests of the abuse victims and survivors. By smearing and attempting to discredit myself and others, vested interests have ignored and trivialised the sufferings of the abused.

I find it inconceivable that the horrific abuse suffered by children through the decades in Jersey could have been covered up, both pre and post Operation Rectangle without at least the tacit complicity of the main stream media in Jersey.

I have witnessed at firsthand how actions of mine have been deliberately misrepresented and how evidence which did not suit the agenda of the Jersey media has been ignored, twisted, or just plain perverted. Only through the blogs of Voice For Children, Rico Sorda, Stuart Syvret, and other public journalists has the truth emerged. There are numerous examples of this but I will mention only a few.

Despite all the evidence to the contrary, and in denial of the facts, the Jersey media still insist on referring to the coconut myth. Evidence that the item concerned was never conclusively identified as a coconut and indeed, was even found to contain collagen, (only found in mammals) has been ignored. The evidence of a respected Professor who stated that the bones found had been burnt and buried whilst fresh and fleshed has been totally ignored. Even a few weeks ago a media source in Jersey was asking me about this nonsense.

The fiasco of the BDO Alto report was a stunning example of how the establishment went to great lengths to deflect from the abuse and the evidence of the survivors by discrediting myself and others. The Scrutiny Report was scathing in its condemnation of the behaviour of the Jersey media, elements of the States, and of course Mr Gradwell and Mr Warcup. What happened to the Chair of that Scrutiny Panel, Trevor Pitman, was intended by the Jersey establishment to be a stark lesson to all who dare to challenge their version of history on behalf of the abused.

More recently we have had the desperate attempts to discredit me and by extension the abuse survivors by the efforts to somehow link me to the criticism by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (Operation Belfong) of the States of Jersey Police in its failings regarding Data Protection issues and much more from 2009 onwards. This despite me leaving the force in 2008 and being told by the PSNI that I did not feature in its investigation, which is why they declined my invitation to be interviewed as part of that investigation.

It was perhaps an unfortunate “oversight” that the Inquiry Terms of Reference did not include how the Jersey mainstream media was able to manipulate public opinion to try and turn it against the survivors and those acting on their behalf.

For all of these reasons and more, I have decided before knowing what is contained in the report, and no matter what is, that I will not be speaking to the mainstream media in Jersey. Should the public journalists that I have mentioned above wish to speak to me I will of course agree to do so. I will also be happy to speak to United Kingdom media sources.

Lenny Harper

Jersey’s historical child abuse inquiry findings delayed

Jersey’s inquiry into historical child abuse won’t now report back this year.

The final report is now expected by March 2017.

http://www.itv.com/news/channel/update/2016-11-22/jerseys-historical-child-abuse-inquiry-findings-delayed/
9 March 2017

​The Panel of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry on Thursday (9 March) released the following statement:

“The Panel has received new information as part of Phase 3 of its work, in respect of recommendations for the future of Jersey’s childcare system.

“The Panel has advised the States of Jersey that there will be a delay to the publication of the report pending examination of the new information as to whether it affects the recommendations we intend to make.

“We do not anticipate extensive delays. We will announce the date of the report’s publication in due course and advise on the arrangements that will be in place for its launch.”

Child Abuse Inquiry on Top Tax Shelter Jersey Island Delayed Again

Apr 6 2017

https://s7.postimg.org/4nik86ai3/centre.jpg

Updated | In 2008, police unearthed the remains of at least 10 children, ages 6 to 12 years old, under a shuttered residential care home, on the island of Jersey—a territory of the British Crown, off the coast of France.

Since then, the scandal has roiled the island, as survivors and activists have clashed with Jersey’s government to find out why hundreds of children who reported being subjected to sexual and violent attacks by more than 150 alleged abusers for decades went largely ignored. Many of the accused are still alive and among the island’s top officials and business leaders, yet the vast majority have never been investigated or punished.

Those accused include British disc jockey Jimmy Savile and, more recently, former U.K. Prime Minister Ted Heath. Both men, now deceased, were fond of traveling to Jersey and inviting orphaned children on sailboat rides. A few of the island’s residents who witnessed these rides have reported some of the children never returned.

A Newsweek cover story in 2014, “Treasure Island,” highlighted how Jersey’s status as a $2 trillion tax shelter, catering to many of the world’s biggest banks, had “allowed corruption to flourish to such an extent that those seeking to combat it are the ones open to scorn,” according to Lenny Harper, former deputy chief of police who led the dig in 2008. Those working to uncover crimes against children on the island (which appear to date back to at least World War II, when the Nazis took over Jersey), were publicly smeared in the island’s government-funded newspaper, fired from their jobs, sued, gagged by legal order and even imprisoned for speaking out.

Now, a $28.4 million (£22.6 million) inquiry by a U.K. judge into the island’s decades of child abuse may allow Jersey to put behind it one of the darkest periods of its recent history. That is, if the inquiry’s three-member panel is able to release its report without any further delay or interference. The final document, expected out last December, was held up a second time in March for unknown reasons. The release date is now expected to be sometime in April. “This all could have been done and dusted years ago if the island hadn’t repeatedly put its reputation ahead of the abuse survivors,” says Carrie Modral, a Jersey resident and survivor who has led the campaign to get to the truth about what happened and why it was ignored for decades.

Modral, now 54, was sent as a toddler to the residential care home where police found children’s remains, called Haut de la Garenne—one of the homes visited frequently by Savile. She was just 3 years old. She was there in the 1960s, and remembers Haut de la Garenne as “overcrowded and very strict.” (The home was closed by Jersey’s government in the 1980s, but some victims say organized child abuse continued there for years afterward. It is now a youth hostel.)

Modral says she remained in government-run care homes in Jersey until she was 18, when she fled to London to escape her rapist, an older man living on the island. He had been sent to jail once for sexually abusing her and other minors, she tells Newsweek, “But when he got out he came after me again. The police didn’t care. They made you feel disbelieved and dirty. I was just a kid in care; I was a nobody. I packed my bag and left.”

A mother of two and grandmother to six, Modral eventually returned to the island and has been fighting for decades to expose the truth about how vulnerable children were treated in Jersey. During the police investigation in 2008, Operation Rectangle, nearly 200 people came forward from as far as Australia to report being abused when they were children growing up in Jersey. Of the 151 suspects named, at least 30 are now dead, according to a release issued by the States of Jersey Police when the investigation closed in 2010.

The inquiry into the island has included testimony from dozens who say they were raped, beaten, locked up, taken from their beds at night, loaned out for day trips where they were abused, and subjected to such extreme violence that they feared for their lives. Many reported being taken as children onto boats and yachts into international waters, where they were raped. Children who resisted or tried to get help reported being drugged, put into solitary confinement or sent to the local mental hospital or subjected to further violence. Some reported witnessing kids commit suicide at places like Haut de la Garenne. One survivor who published a book about his time at Haut de la Garenne says he witnessed another child (who was trying to fight off his abuser) boiled alive.

Since the summer of 2014, the inquiry’s panel, led by Judge Frances Oldham, has heard testimony from more than 200 witnesses who say they experienced abuse in the island’s foster and residential care homes from 1945 on. Abuse frequently took place in other locations, according to the island’s police, such as within the Jersey Sea Cadets, a nautical youth charity, but the government-funded inquiry focused strictly on government-run foster and care homes. According to the judge, the purpose of the final report is to “establish the truth about what happened to children in residential and foster homes, how mistreatment of children remained hidden for so long and what was done when concerns were raised.”

To this day, the island’s government is still fighting many of the abuse allegations. As of February 2017, the total cost of the three-year inquiry included more than $8.3 million (£6.6 million) of legal fees incurred by Jersey’s government to pay a team it hired to defend itself against allegations leveled by hundreds of the abuse survivors. Between 2012 and 2015, Jersey paid nearly $2.7 million (£2.1 million) to more than 100 survivors abused for decades in its residential care and foster homes. Maximum payment for an individual was about $75,000 (£60,000).

What now concerns survivors like Modral most is that the reasons for the report’s delays have not been made clear to them. And perhaps more troubling, there is reason to believe that the inquiry’s panel may be working with Jersey’s government on the final report, which would break a key promise made by the judge when she adjourned the inquiry in June 2016. At the time, Oldham emphasized that, in the interest of being “open and transparent” she would not engage in contact with anyone, including Jersey’s government, before publishing the final report, since it “would be inappropriate.” Yet in a release issued on March 9, the inquiry stated its report would be delayed for a second time because it had received “new information” from a source it would not name that could affect its final recommendations about the future of Jersey’s child-care system.

During a parliamentary question-and-answer session with Jersey’s chief minister (the island’s de facto president) in mid-March, some of the island’s elected leaders demanded to know if the government had been in touch with the inquiry panelists, who were supposed to be working independently. In response, Jersey’s Chief Minister Ian Gorst, declined to confirm there had been no further contact between the government and the panelists. A few days later, in an interview with the BBC Jersey, he said it was those running the inquiry, not Jersey’s government, who had initiated contact, not the other way around. “Nobody within the States, as far as I’m aware under the information that I have, made contact with the panel,” he said. “But the panel—again, I don’t know the details—have asked for clarification of certain matters in the report-writing stage.” He did not elaborate on what those clarifications were, when the inquiry first made contact, or with whom.

When reached by Newsweek about what new information the inquiry was seeking at such a late stage, who it came from and what the nature of it was, the inquiry’s spokeswoman, Angharad Shurmer said that Judge Oldham indicated “no further details are available in respect of this information.” Shurmer added that a new release date for the inquiry’s final report will be announced “in due course.” Gorst says the report may be out around Easter, but also noted that he has yet to be informed of an exact date.

For the survivors, many of whom must emotionally prepare for the report’s release, the inquiry’s delays have been incredibly frustrating. “It’s the opposite of open and transparent,” says Modral. “After working so hard to gain the trust of the survivors for this inquiry, to have so many delays without any plausible explanation is extremely damaging.”

Gorst has urged a speedy release of the inquiry’s report, noting that Jersey must take lessons from its past to ensure such large-scale abuses against children never happen again. In a statement emailed to Newsweek, he said: “The Jersey Care Inquiry has given a voice to victims and I would like to thank those people for their courage in coming forward to tell their stories. Our priority now is to respond to the recommendations from the Inquiry to ensure that our young people are protected, both now and in the future.”

Alan Collins, a partner at London law firm Hugh James, which represents more than 80 survivors of child abuse—including Modral—is also concerned about the delays. “If the report doesn’t come out soon,” he tells Newsweek, “I am afraid the inquiry may start to have some credibility problems.”

Collins says he’s still hopeful the inquiry into Jersey’s child abuse will be one of the most comprehensive ever released in the British Isles. “This report should be on the desk of anyone dealing with systemic child abuse, from governments to health and social services to law enforcement officials,” he says. “Jersey’s got ongoing problems, but it’s not unique. It’s a microcosm of a lot of other places, and we can learn from it.”

Correction: A previous version of this story stated Modral says she remained in government-run care homes in Jersey until she was 17. It was until she was 18. A previous version of this story also stated that between 2012 and 2015, Jersey paid money to survivors of its residential care and foster homes, and that the maxium payment was $60,000. It was £60,000.

What everyone now reading reports such as the JEP’s on the Graham Power hearing should remember is that there is hardly anything at all new in what Mr Power has revealed about the disgraceful machinations of the Jersey Establishment. That the MSM are now reporting such things is simply because the Inquiry and those brave few who fought for it have forced them to. The question that should be asked is given Jersey’s ‘media’ had Mr Power’s huge statement years ago why didn’t they publish the truth then?

voiceforchildren
Indeed, the fact is that Graham Power produced very little, or nothing new, whilst giving his evidence to the Inquiry. A great deal of what he had to say was produced in his affidavit years ago which was published on this Blog HERE.

It was also made a public document by former Deputy Bob Hill as a part of his proposition P.166 (forgotten the year). The State Media were burying all this stuff back then and it was the Bloggers who were publishing it. It is only now, some five, or so, years later that the MSM is reporting, what we were reporting back then.

savile haut de la garenne

An ex resident of Haut de la Garenne Childrens Home claims he saw children from the home being taken on to Heaths yacht and came back crying. There have been allegations that 11 boys left on Heaths boat and only ten returned when he went out with Savile. This was reported to the police with a Jersey Senator but nothing was done

Latest: Jersey Care Inquiry

16 January 2015

Jersey’s Care Inquiry has heard from a witness today who backs up claims that disgraced TV Presenter Jimmy Savile was in Jersey in 1976 when he denied he was.

‘Mr D’ was 15 years old when Savile visited Jersey children’s home Haut de la Garenne and had a photograph taken with a group of children.

Mr D says he was “too withdrawn” to ask to be in the photograph himself. But he says he saw a group of children pose for the photograph with Savile by the swimming pool.

This is the second witness to claim Jimmy Savile visited Haut de la Garenne.

Yesterday a man claimed he was sexually assaulted by Jimmy Savile during an outing with the care home.

He said Savile took him aside after the photograph was taken..

http://www.itv.com/news/channel/update/2015-01-16/witness-evidence-supports-claim-savile-was-in-jersey-in-the-1970s/

It has also now emerged that Savile visited the infamous Haut de la Garenne care home on the island of Jersey. Savile sued The Sun in 2008 to cover this up and to prevent the publication of a photograph which allegedly shows Savile in the company of children at the care home. As a consequence the paper had to withdraw the article and the photograph, but the picture is still widely available on the net and the story, though not the picture, has been published by both The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mail

Postcards link Islington care home children to scene of notorious Jersey sex abuse

The postcards provide solid evidence that children from Islington’s homes in the 1970s were sent on trips to Jersey, in an exchange programme with children from the notorious Haut de la Garenne home, where widespread abuse took place.

Heath July 1976 at the Royal Channel Island Yacht Club
Sir Edward Heath does feature as part of Operation Whistle, currently investigating historical allegations of abuse in Jersey.’

Investigations into claims that police socialised with suspected paedophiles at a Jersey yacht club “came to a dead end” when the police chief was denied access to the yacht club registers, which would have shown who was present at gatherings.

Graham Power was in charge when the police investigation into historical child abuse began in 2006. He said there were reports that children were abused on boats.

TED HEATH AT THE TOWN HALL WITH (the late) CONSTABLE PETER BAKER JULY 20 1976

“I was told that a group of police officers and senior officials, and people who were subsequently associated with paedophile activity, used to meet as a group at the yacht club at the same time and socialise together.

“The reports that things were happening out at sea all seemed to join up into a sort of set of circumstances that merits investigation.”

Well, I can hazard a guess. Related to to several reasons. Not least that the quantum of punitive and exemplary damages going to victims ……would – rightly – have amounted to many, many £$millions – at massive loss to LLoyd’s Names & related entities, & consequent peanuts…
..whilst survivors, at best, AT BEST, secured cash settlement, about enough to buy a moderate car. Hows that? In exchange for lives wrecked?
to all the lawyers involved, most noticeably, the victim’s “own” lawyers – who have been able to cream-off vast sums of “uncontested fees”
I had to actually pro-activly approach Allan Collins at the outset, before even existed. I offered him…..
…offered Allan Collins an affidavit. I had to beg to even get a meeting within him. It too place in a Jersey pub, in Halkett street….
…he plainly didn’t want to be there. I explained the massive – JUST MASSIVE – UNPRECEDENTED – WILLING – FIREPOWER his clients could call on. I would give a truthful affidavit, on the dismal failings – and worse – of Jersey childrens “services”; & I knew from contact with them….
…that no-less figures or awesome calbre, the then Police Chief and Deputy Police Chief would, likewise be willing witness.
To best of my knowledge not one of us 3 was approached by survivors lawyers and asked to give such testimony on survivors’ behalves. When I met Allan Collins & spoke with him – and in later e-mail correspondence, I virtually begged him for legal representation for me. He made always excuses – just like every other lawyer, chambers, firm etc, I’ve ever approached, as to “why” they couldn’t / wouldnt represents me ..every possible excuse – and then some. And more.
Consequently, for being the 1st Government office-holder to spot, identify & speak-out….against decades of monstrous child-abuse & child-protection failure I am only human-being in entire Council of Europe who can’t get lawyer
So – yes. The Stakes are – plainly – that high. As a lawyer, if you have a group of vulnerable clients – whose official, government / state …opponents would simply be, metaphorically speaking, “nuked” in the face of the right damning witnesses – it has be very concerning.
..does it not? Questioning of those lawyers motives – when those known – available – willing – formidable – 100% allied to their clients..
..very concerning indeed – when abuse-victims “own” lawyers failed to call – proactively willing – powerful – centrally-placed – witnesses?

Child abuse: The campaign must go on, says ex-Senator

IT is ‘difficult to feel vindicated’ while child abusers are still walking the street and the ‘fight for justice’ must continue, a former Health Minister and child abuse campaigner has said.

Ex-Senator Stuart Syvret was at the forefront of a decade-long campaign to expose the Island’s failings which allowed systemic child abuse to remain hidden for decades.
