Brothers: Richard Alston – convicted child rapist (left) – Diplomat Robert Alston (right) pictured above
Richard Alston – former school teacher and long term partner of the founder of PIE (Peter Righton) – has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for molesting an 11-year-old boy.
Charles Napier and Peter Righton
The court heard that Peter Righton and Richard Alston’s friend Charles Napier – now a convicted paedophile – would also be present when the boy was abused.
Brothers: Charles Napier, the half-brother of senior Conservative MP John Whittingdale and cousin to DIPLOMAT Peter Hayman’s wife, was jailed for 13 years for carrying out hundreds of sexual assaults on young boys.

The subsequent police investigation revealed a correspondence of an obscene nature between Sir Peter Hayman and a number of other persons. The papers involved an obsession about the systematic killing by sexual torture of young people and children.

Could they be
The two men who were part of Peter Hayman’s paedophile network ?
In November 2012, the Mirror reported on Charles Napier who appears to be a central player in the paedophile scandal engulfing the U.K.
…The probe led police to the kitchen of a flat in South London where they found a letter from ‘Napier – who had a child assault conviction 20 years before – boasting of his life in Cairo as a”British Council teacher.
He bragged of easy access to young boys and how he could send obscene images back to Britain in diplomatic bags.(Charles Napier joined the British Council after his 1972 conviction.
(Henniker was Director of the British Council 1968-72).
Many questions remain unanswered including who were Napier’s referees for his employment with the British Council?
The scandal erupted again when Labour MP Tom Watson raised the matter with David Cameron in the House of Commons suggesting a network of paedophiles working in the UK had links to high levels of Government.

The Society holds a number of events at 34 Sackville Street that bring together British and Omani members, friends and guests.
Queen Elizabeth sharing a special handshake with Sultan Qaboos – rumoured to be a paedophile
“Google Sultan Oman… To pass on these rumors and more, here are a few: the King apparently has a cadre of very attractive bodyguards; his harem is full of men, with women there as helpers and only to avoid widespread scrutiny; the Sultan is rumored to be a pedophile who goes off boys once they hit puberty; that people won’t introduce their sons to him; and much more.”
Soon after the police left Pitcairn, Alston wrote a letter to the Chief Constable of Kent Police , David Phillips and sent a gift of Picairn coat of arms to be displayed at Kent Police headquarters.
Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George (CMG) – 1987
He did National Service with the Royal Sussex Regiment.
The Middle East (as a Persian speaker) and defence, security and proliferation issues were the principal themes of his career.

In 2012, they co-authored ‘Unshook till the end of time’, a history of Britain’s relationship with Oman.
Stuart Laing found himself under a shroud of controversy in late February 2011 when accompanying a trade delegation to the Middle East, led by the British Prime Minister David Cameron, that contained several delegates from UK defence companies including BAE Systems and Thales Group.
Laing attended in his official capacity as Deputy Vice Chancellor of Cambridge University along with the heads of other British universities such as Imperial College London and University College London. Objections were raised that, as such weapons and devices of public order control had recently been used by the governments of Egypt and Libya, it was irresponsible for the University to be involved in such a trip.
Since retiring from the Diplomatic Service Alston has been involved with
education (as Chairman of the Council of Ardingly College from 2005-10 and Chairman of the Governing Body of the Marsh Academy New Romney fro 2007-13);
the Church (on the staff of Archbishop George Carey* from 1999-2002;
the Commonwealth Institute and its successor the Commonwealth Education Trust;
the Pilgrims, where he serves as a member of the Executive Committee; and the County of Kent as a Kent Ambassador and a Deputy Lieutenant from 2007-13.
The Pilgrims Society, founded on 16 July 1902, is a British-American society

Members of the immediate Royal Family, United States secretaries of state and United States ambassadors to the Court of St. James are customarily admitted to membership in the Society.
The patron of the society is Queen Elizabeth II.
Executive Committee members, as of 2016, include :
Robert Alston CMG
Sir Peter Bottomley MP
“The Pilgrims Society is a cluster of intermarried old-line rich, royals and robber barons who created the world’s financial structure.”
The Pilgrims Society: A Study of the Anglo-American Establishment and Its Historical Support for Fascism
“There are several curious things about these Pilgrims functions. In the first place there is present at these dinners an array of notables such as it would be difficult to bring together under one roof for any other purpose and by any other society… Among the guests were John D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan, Thomas W. Lamont and other members of the House of Morgan… We are entitled to know what the Pilgrim Society is, what it stands for, and who these powerful Pilgrims are that can call out the great to hear a British Ambassador expound to Americans the virtues of a united democratic front.”

Diplomat Robert Alston was on the staff of Archbishop George Carey…
*Ball was not charged when the allegations of abuse against him first emerged in 1993. Instead the police and senior figures in the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), then led by the late Barbara Mills, agreed to issue Ball with a caution.
Peter Ball was not charged and this was done with the knowledge of the then archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey.
Ball proceeded to resign as bishop and went to live in a property lent to him by his friend the Prince of Wales.
George Carey and Prince Charles:
Bishop Carey and Elizabeth Butler-Sloss have been accused of covering up for Prince Charles’ paedophile mentor and friend Bishop Peter Ball.

Kincora, links to PIE, Morris Fraser, Secret service etc …Robert Alston, brother of PIE member Richard Alston, was in Belfast on secondment to the Northern Ireland Office.
What does Robert Alston know about Kincora?
Statement issued by Colin Wallace following the publication of the Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report.
Although I initially offered to give evidence to the Inquiry, I later decided not to, mainly on the grounds that the Government repeatedly refused to give it the same legal powers as the corresponding Inquiry in London.
I believe that both the perception and the reality of the Government’s decision is one ofunfairness to the victims.
Despite my decision, I did, however, provide the Inquiry with 265 pages of comment and supportingdocuments, drawing attention to false or misleading information contained in the transcripts of thepublic hearings. My reason for doing so was to enable the Inquiry to investigate and corroborate theaccuracy of my past comments about Kincora and related matters, and to provide the Inquiry with theopportunity to correct the relevant errors in the its published transcripts.
None of the information I provided to the Inquiry is new.
Although some of it has not previously been in the public domain, it has been in the possession of the Ministry of Defence and other Government agencies for many years and should have been made available by those authorities to the Inquiry.
It should, therefore, also have been made available by the authorities to previous Inquiries and the Government needs to explain why that did not happen. Even more worrying, is the acknowledged fact that key Army Intelligence files relating to Tara and William McGrath – including the one compiled by Intelligence officer, Captain Brian Gemmell – appear to have gone missing after they were handed over by the Army to MI5 in 1989, prior to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s admission to Parliament (30 January 1990) that Ministers had“inadvertently misled” Parliament about my case.
There also appears to be no record whatsoever of what became of all the ‘Clockwork Orange’ project files which I handed over to my superiors when Ileft Army Headquarters in Lisburn in February 1975. Some of those files related to William McGrath.
To make matters worse, it is now clear from the Inquiry’s transcripts that a senior MI5 officer, Ian Cameron, falsely accused me of ‘leaking’, without authority, information to the press about William McGrath.
The MI5 claim is bizarre.
As my Army superior at the time has confirmed in the press, I was officially instructed by my superiors in Psychological Operations, at the behest of Major General Peter Leng, to brief the press about McGrath as early as 1973, in a bid to attract media attention to his activities.
It is also significant that the MI5 officer who accused me of ‘leaking’ information about McGrath to the press later refused to be interviewed by the Terry Inquiry investigators about why he ordered Captain Brain Gemmell, to stop investigating McGrath.
Clearly, the Army and MI5 had very different agendas regarding McGrath and his activities.The astonishing claim by the authorities that they knew nothing about the allegations surrounding McGrath’s sexual activities until 1980 is a total travesty.
As my documents clearly show, it is simply not credible that I knew more about McGrath and his activities than the combined Intelligence community did in 1973/74. One must conclude, therefore, that the Intelligence Services did not tell the Inquiry all they knew about McGrath during the 1970s.
Indeed, most of the information I possessed about McGrath in 1973/74 came from within the Intelligence community and was quite substantial. Moreover, my 1973 press briefing document clearly contains more information about McGrath than the Intelligence Services have claimed to the Inquiry that they possessed at that time!
For example, that document states that McGrath “is a known homosexual” and that he “runs a home for children on the (236) Upper Newtownards Road. Telephone: B’fast 657838.”
Finally, to suggest that because I gave the press the exact postal address (including the street number of the property), plus the telephone number of the Kincora home, but did not actually include the name,‘Kincora’, that somehow invalidates my evidence.
That is an unacceptable attempt to avoid facing up to what I have been saying over the years, and also shows that the claim made by the Intelligence Services to the Inquiry that they were not aware until 1980 of where McGrath worked is demonstrably false.
Overall, I believe the Inquiry has been a wasted opportunity to establish the full facts relating to this matter and I feel the victims have been let down yet again, as they were by previous Inquiries.
