Children’s rights activist Peter Newell jailed for abuse

Feb 16 2018

A children’s rights activist has been jailed for six years and eight months for sexually abusing a boy in the 1960s.

Peter Newell was the former co-ordinator of the Association for the Protection of All Children charity.

The 77-year-old from Wood Green, north London, was sentenced last month at Blackfriars Crown Court.

He admitted five indecent and serious sexual assaults on a child under 16.

The Association for the Protection of All Children, or Approach, says its objectives are to prevent cruelty and maltreatment of children and advance public knowledge in the UK and abroad.

It says its focus is on protecting children from “physical punishment and all other injurious… whether inside or outside the home”.

Approach operates through the Children Are Unbeatable! Alliance in the UK and the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children.

There is no suggestion the south London-based charity knew about Newell’s behaviour, which occurred before he was employed there.

In 2015 Approach brought a complaint to Europe’s top human rights watchdog against France and six other EU countries over its failure to explicitly ban smacking children.

Newell was listed as Approach’s co-ordinator in its accounts on the Charity Commission website, although the most recent document says he stood down from the role in May 2016.

According to the accounts, for the five years from 2012 to 2016, Approach received hundreds of thousands of pounds in income from the NSPCC, Barnardo’s, Save the Children and Unicef, as well as other organisations abroad and a private donor.

The latest accounts for 2017 show Approach only received funding for its overseas activities, and the NSPCC and Barnardo’s were not listed as having made any contributions.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said Newell’s offences, which were first reported to it in March 2016, started when his victim was aged 12.

Police said they took place between 1965 and 1968 at a number of addresses and locations in south and east England, including London.

Newell pleaded guilty on 2 January to two charges of serious sexual assault between May 1966 and May 1968 and three charges of indecent assault committed between May 1965 and May 1968.

The Charity Commission said it was informed by Approach about the allegation against Newell in 2016.

It said: “We have been in correspondence with the charity on this matter since 2016 to ensure the charity’s safeguarding procedures are robust and that there are policies in place to protect its beneficiaries.

“The charity has confirmed that it has safeguarding policies and procedures in place which are being kept under review and that the charity and the trustees have very limited contact with children and that there is no suggestion that the charity’s beneficiaries were or are at risk.”

In 2007, Newell co-authored (with his wife Rachel Hodgkin)  the Implementation Handbook for the Convention on the Rights of the Child for Unicef.

Unicef said it has “zero tolerance for sexual exploitation and abuse”.

A spokesperson added: “We are deeply shocked to hear of the arrest of Peter Newell. We had no knowledge of this crime when he worked as a Unicef consultant 10 years ago. Unicef has since set in place strong procedures to vet staff and consultants.”

Barnardo’s said it was “one of over a 100 organisations that supported the Alliance”.

White Lion Free School in Islington, London, which existed from 1972 to 1990.

Pete Newell and Alison Truefitt were the founders of the school and the key staff members at that time.

At the time I was at the school a lot of effort was put into fundraising and the kids played a big part in this. My earliest office experience was at the age of 11 and 12, writing letters asking for support.

Image result for "savile" + "dj" "

I also attended Jimmy Savile shows at Capital Radio and met other DJs with a group of pupils from the school to represent its positive aspects as a means of publicising it in its best light. I did a lot of work raising money to get records for the school disco, posters for the disco and other things that the school really needed at the time.

DJ David Hamilton told how Savile made a beeline for the Countess of Wessex when she was a young PR at London’s Capital Radio.

Alison Truefitt writes: I was a journalist for ten years (Times, Guardian, BBC), before a sudden switch to study singing/piano at the Royal Academy of Music.

Then 20+ years professional singing: recitals for the BBC, Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall, music clubs, festivals, choral societies, minor soloist in Proms and with English National Opera. Also taught singing at Rose Bruford College, the Actors’ Centre and Royal Shakespeare Company, accompanied singers and instrumentalists, and edited/proofread books for publishers like Faber, Macmillan and Virago for a bit of extra money.

I also got deeply, madly involved in two community projects: – in 1972 a Free School for street kids in Islington – not the Tory party version – and, in the 1980s, a village resurrection project near the lovely remote mid-Wales bolt-hole I was lucky enough to inherit from my father.

The project became UK Village of the Year in 1998 and they gave me an MBE. Prince Charles asked me to join his rural development council.   Thought I was more or less retired now, but maybe I’m wrong again….

This was rewarded when the village of Llanbadarn Fynydd was awarded UK village of the year in 1998. Additionally there was a Royal Visit from Prince Charles (landing his helicopter on a field next to the village) on his return from the Royal Welsh Show on the 22nd July, also in 1998.

Cassandra Cogno‏ @CassandraCogno

When did Peter Newell end up living in Wood Green? How long did he work for the Times Educational Supplement?

Newell’s conviction raises more questions about the sadistic sexual abusers vs the no corporal punishment sexual abusers (PIE) – the two sides were very much aware of one another

 

He was the organiser of an experimental free school in Islington as well (White Lion Free School, formed 1972, closed 1977) for truants/disruptive children

He was deputy editor at TES, and in 1972 was education advisor to NCCL. (lots of articles/letters in The Times archives by him. )

 


Newell has three children, which helps him to avoid the accusation thrown at childless supporters of a ban that ‘they don’t know what it’s like to bring up kids’. “It’s part of the CV to have children,” he jokes. He says he has never hit them and was himself spared any blows as a child. “Although I did have my hair pulled once,” he smiles.

Children’s rights have been a major part of his life since he left the Times Educational Supplement in 1971

The person who was appointed to the top of the tree by Ted Heath’s Gov’t in 1970 was Barbara Kahan, a social worker who was the Home Office’s Deputy Chief Inspector of the Children’s Dept. At that time the Home Secretary was Reginald Maudling who ended up resigning after he was involved in a major scandal linked to large scale corruption in business dealings. When the remit for child care was taken over by the DHSS in 1971, Kahan transferred to that Dept, to work under Secretary of State Sir Keith Joseph.

Barbara Kahan was someone who was at the heart of a system that was rotten throughout her whole career and became a good deal more putrefied whilst she was at the highest level. Kahan came from a Labour Party, Methodist family and in 1939 went to Newnham College, Cambridge. Whilst at Cambridge she re-started the University Labour Club, also worked for Richard Acland’s left-leaning Commonwealth Party and joined the Peace Pledge Union. After Cambridge, Kahan undertook a social science course at the LSE………..

How childcare was hijacked

Activists for ‘children’s rights’ have unwittingly aided the paedophile agenda, argues Lynette Burrows

THE PROGRESS of “children’s rights” affords a classic example of the spellbinding effect that can be created by pressure groups. The lobby that has masterminded the movement numbers no more than a couple of dozen people, and yet its effect has been phenomenal. This can be explained only by the fact that its area of interest, the family, was relatively unexploited until a number of administrative decisions were made.

Childcare pressure groups have been influential, if not decisive, in many of the policy decisions concerning children and the family. Most people assume that campaigning groups enjoy public support. In the case of many of the children’s rights groups, however, this is not the case. It is worrying that many children’s rights organisations are, in fact, started by the same handful of people and that they rely almost entirely on institutional and charitable support.

Image result for "peter newell" + "rachel hodgkin"

Peter Newell and Rachel Hodgkin have been involved in the setting-up of no fewer than eight of the most important organisations involved in children’s rights, including the Children’s Rights Office and the Children’s Rights Development Unit. All have enjoyed the support of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and the Gulbenkian Foundation. They and their colleagues are influential both here and in Europe, where they are helping to draft parliament regulations for the European Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Together with a dozen or so colleagues, they have produced reports, sat on committees and recommended one another’s views on a host of issues, almost invariably within the agenda of the libertarian Left.

It was a Newell group, STOPP, that got a ban on corporal punishment in schools, despite opposition from teachers, parents and even children. Few doubt that the problems associated with poor behaviour in schools have been a result of this decision.

Another of Newell’s organisations successfully lobbied Parliament in support of moves for doctors to by-pass parental consent for under-age girls to be prescribed contraceptives. The thousands of under-16-year-olds who have babies every year should in many cases be regarded as the victims of paedophilia – except that the topic has been portrayed in such a way as to make it impossible to see it in that light.

Yet another Newell group is the anti-smacking organisation Epoch and its associated charity, Approach. This group recruited Penelope Leach, the psychologist and childcare writer, to its board and publicised the support of numerous social services and childcare organisations.

However, Hans Eysenck, of the Institute of Psychiatry, described Miss Leach’s defence of its stance on smacking as “unscientific” and “too one-sided to form the basis of responsible recommendations to law-giving bodies”. Furthermore, inquiries also reveal that, of the 60-odd organisations listed by Epoch as being in agreement with its aims, only nine supported legislation banning the smacking of children.

Nevertheless, Leach, Hodgkin and other Newell associates were also members of government advisory bodies which helped to draft the immensely important Children Act 1989.

We should be alert to the fact that many ideas implicit in administrative decisions are, in fact, derived from a philosophy first expounded by paedophile groups in the 1970s. This is not to say that those whose philosophies tend to overlap share the sexual predilections of paedophiles, but they have been, perhaps unwittingly, influenced by their political ideas.

There are three, unconnected, groups which have an interest in colonising the territory previously governed by parents: childcare professionals, commercial interests and paedophiles. Of the three, the paedophiles were the first to state their case and set their agenda.

Before they were made illegal in 1982, paedophile groups spelt out their philosophy and aims in some detail. Broadly, these were to destroy first the concept of the vulnerable child and, second, the guiding and protective role of parents. To this end, their agenda included abolishing all forms of corporal punishment of children, removing the right of adults to direct children’s behaviour, allowing them to choose whom they lived with, abolishing the age of consent for both boys and girls and making contraception and abortion available to children.

This was their programme and they influenced many others who did not see their agenda in the same sexual terms, including politicians and children’s rights activists. However, by championing so many causes from this agenda, children’s rights activists have unwittingly assisted paedophiles in achieving several aims on their agenda.

I first heard about the PIE/NCCL link years ago in a little booklet written by Lynette Burrows called “Fight for the family” she also made links to another bunch of “Childrens rights” people, Peter Newell and Rachel Hodgkin

With all 7 of the existing children’s rights organisations founded, or co-founded by one man, Peter Newell, who has been funded from the beginning by an overseas charitable trust. His partner, Rachel Hodgkin, and many colleagues from these organisations are now in prominent positions in major charities and on government bodies.

Whether one is sympathetic to the philosophy they pursue or not, it is important to realise both what they are up to, and what they really want. This is no less than the total subjugation of the family to the dictates of the state – as happens in Sweden today. The means by which they hope to accomplish this is by the same means used by the Swedish state. That is to criminalize the majority of parents, who smack their children for disciplinary purposes, so that they are everywhere at the mercy of the authorities.

This simple device enables social workers to decide to take children away from their parents for whatever reason they choose. If one considers our own cases of over-reaction by social workers as in Cleveland, the Orkneys, Nottingham and a host of other places, one can see that with an anti-smacking law in place, most of those parents who were able to get their children back – plus apologies and compensation from the authorities – would have no defence. If even a smack on the hand or leg has been administered at some time, the parents would be put in the wrong and the social workers could keep their children – and the compensation.

Peter Newell:

Among his numerous roles, in England he has chaired the NGO Children’s Rights Alliance and is Coordinator of the UK Children are unbeatable! Alliance, campaigning for abolition of all corporal punishment. In the 1990s he was Research Coordinator for the Commission on Children and Violence in the UK. Internationally, he is Coordinator of the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children. He helped prepare UNICEF’s Implementation Handbook on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and has worked frequently as a consultant for UNICEF.

The most important child rights issues are those that are symbolic of children’s status in society. So, in terms of my work, that means children having equal protection under the law from violence.

If I could give advocates one piece of advice? Work harder. And, in particular, work harder at getting the Convention on the Rights of the Child recognised as a legal instrument.

The best thing about the Convention is that it is clear and comprehensive about children as rights holders. The worst is that some of the language allows for punitive responses in juvenile justice.

The best achievement of my career has probably been helping to get the issue of equal protection of children taken seriously, and on to the agenda of different human rights mechanisms.

An organisation’s work which I especially admire is that of the Committee on the Rights of the Child. Although there are a number of organisations doing good work.

If I was not working in child rights, I would be gardening, and growing vegetables.

The best thing about my job is the challenge of constantly inventing new advocacy strategies. The worst is meeting the same stupid, hypocritical arguments from adults.

If I was not answering these questions, I would be…on my allotment.

My best job in child rights? I’m happy where I am.

If I had to sum up children’s rights in one word, it would be: non-negociable

‘It’s not like we murdered babies’: Oxfam chief hits out at ‘unfair’ backlash over sex scandal

Boss Mark Goldring claims people are “gunning” for the charity over claims staff sexually exploited disaster victims

17 FEB 2018

Oxfam has been accused of concealing inquiry findings over claims staff used prostitutes in Haiti in 2011. Mr Goldring said nine staff behaved unacceptably and he was “deeply ashamed”.

Scotland’s charity regulator dealt with 15 cases of alleged sexual misconduct in the past two years. And ex-Unicef consult­­ant Peter Newell, 77, of Wood Green, North London was last month jailed for raping a boy of 12 in the 1960s. Unicef said it had not known of his crime.

In February 2018, the chairman of Oxfam International, Juan Alberto Fuentes Knight, was arrested as part of a corruption probe in Guatemala.

Some charities are being run by Mossad and its friends, and, are involved in organising child abuse rings?

“More than 120 workers for Britain’s leading charities were accused of sexual abuse in the past year (2017) alone, fuelling fears that child abusers are targeting overseas aid organisations.

“As new figures emerged revealing the extent of the crisis, Priti Patel, the former international development secretary, warned ‘predatory paedophiles’ had been allowed to exploit the aid sector.”

Save The Children dealt with 193 child protection and 35 sexual harassment cases involving allegations against its staff around the world last year, the head of the charity told MPs today.

Kevin Watkins, the chief executive, told the international development select committee that the misconduct cases in 120 countries led to 30 dismissals. The scandal of the sexual misconduct of some workers in Haiti, exposed by The Times this month, was a warning against complacency to the entire aid sector, he added.

Mr Watkins was a trustee of Save The Children in 2015 when Brendan Cox, widower of MP Jo Cox, was investigated over sexual harassment allegations, but resigned before facing disciplinary action.

 Peter Dalglish, pictured with a young male acquaintance, is a former Unicef and WHO official and was found with 'two young boys at his home in Nepal'

New charity child sex abuse scandal is sparked after UN launches probe into 60-year-old former WHO and Unicef official arrested after ‘being found with two boys at his home in Nepal’

  • Peter Dalglish was allegedly found in the same room as two boys aged 12 and 14
  • The were found together at the former WHO official’s home in Nepal by police 
  • Dalglish worked at the UN for 30 years and held positions at the WHO and Unicef

The United Nations has launched an investigation after a former senior official with links to a British charity was arrested over serious child sex offences.

Police allege they found 60-year-old Peter Dalglish with two boys aged 12 and 14 in the same room when they launched a dawn raid at his idyllic mountainside home in Nagarkot, near Kathmandu, Nepal, earlier this month.

Dalglish has held various posts, some senior, with UN agencies which receive more than £582 million a year in foreign aid from British taxpayers.

In his most recent posting in 2015, he was the UN’s ‘country representative’ in Kabul.

Detectives claim the lawyer-turned-charity boss has been abusing children in Nepal for 15 years after a young man in his mid-20s made historical allegations against him. Police say that ‘medical and scientific evidence’ against Dalglish will be presented by prosecutors when he appears in court on Wednesday.

Officers said they were tipped off by workers from another charity three months ago, but also received intelligence from a foreign law enforcement agency more recently, and were following Dalglish prior to the arrest.

‘Initial investigations revealed that he had been targeting children from poor financial backgrounds and sexually abusing them,’ said Pushkar Karki, director of Nepal’s elite Central Investigation Bureau.

He claimed that Dalglish lured children away from their parents with offers to educate them, take them abroad and provide them with jobs.

He told The Mail on Sunday that Canadian-born Dalglish believed his status would make him invulnerable, adding: ‘Those things made it easy for him to prey on those kids. And then they would be silenced, because he has got so much influence.’

Staff at various UN agencies were urgently investigating Dalglish’s past activities last week.

The married father-of-one founded global charity Street Kids International (SKI), which is now part of London-based Save the Children. He says he was inspired to help youngsters by the 1984 Ethiopian famine, which gave rise to Band Aid and Live Aid, and in his autobiography he writes of meeting Bob Geldof the following year at a camp in Sudan.

He recalled watching refugee children cluster around Geldof and observed: ‘I have always believed that many kids come with a built-in radar that tells them which adults they can trust and which they should fear.’

Princess Anne has been President of Save the Children since 1970.

Dalglish, whose net worth has been estimated at more than £5 million, has met Canadian premier Justin Trudeau and Princess Anne through his humanitarian work.

About 15 years ago, he founded the Himalayan Community Foundation, providing healthcare and education to remote communities in Nepal.

Dalglish’s UN career spans more than 30 years, and at various times he has held senior posts in the World Food Programme, Unicef, WHO, and UN-Habitat, the organisation’s home-building programme.

WFP said it was checking its records for the mid-1980s but had not yet found Dalglish’s name – a spokesman added that he could have been a local appointment.

UN-Habitat revealed that Dalglish worked for it between 2010 and 2015, but there have ‘not been any reports or allegations on any misconduct during his tenure’. WHO said it was ‘shocked’ at the allegations but added that no complaints had been made against him.

Save the Children said that Dalglish had never worked for the charity, adding: ‘Save the Children acquired one of SKI’s programmes and some of its assets in 2015.’ Unicef said they were reviewing their records. Sir Bob Geldof declined to comment.

Dalglish’s lawyer Rahul Chapagain insisted his client was innocent and added: ‘Charges have not be filed but he denies the allegations. He will plead not guilty.

KARTIKE, Nepal: When Peter Dalglish, a lauded humanitarian worker, built a sleek cabin near a Nepalese village of rutted roads and hills ribbed with rice paddies, local residents knew virtually nothing about him.

But over several years, the Canadian lawyer endeared himself to many in the community, greeting villagers in Nepali, offering chocolates from Thailand to children playing in the forest and helping people rebuild their homes destroyed by devastating earthquakes in 2015.

The goodwill was shattered last month when police swarmed Dalglish’s home, placed a gun to his head and arrested him on charges of raping at least two boys, 12 and 14.

Suddenly, villagers were on edge, worried about how far the betrayal — and abuse — may have stretched.

“We trusted him,” said Sher Bahadur Tamang, who said he received hundreds of dollars from Dalglish to pay for his child’s education. “He treated us so well. We never knew what was inside his mind.”

Dalglish’s downfall has been a shock partly because his work aiding street children around the world was so widely admired. He was a guest speaker at numerous events in Thailand over many years. In 2016, he was awarded the Order of Canada, the country’s second highest civilian honour.

Nepal is one of Asia’s poorest countries, and thousands of nongovernmental organisations operate there with limited government oversight. The absence of strict regulations means aid groups can be used as a cover for human traffickers and predatory behaviour by humanitarian workers, said Pushkar Karki, head of Nepal’s Chief Investigation Bureau, the agency overseeing the case against Dalglish.

This year, the police arrested Hans Jurgen Gustav Dahm, 63, a German who was running a charity organisation in Kathmandu that provided free lunches to children, many of whom accused him of sexual abuse.

In the past two years, five other foreign men, including Dalglish, 60, have been arrested on suspicion of paedophilia, Karki said.

“There have been some instances where they were found working with charities,” he said, noting that several of the men informally offered money, food and clothing to children. “Our laws aren’t as strict as in foreign countries, and there is no social scrutiny like in developed countries.”

The arrest of such a notable humanitarian has added urgency to a new effort by aid workers around the world, who are saying it is now time to investigate themselves. Late last year, they started a #MeToo-like movement called #AidToo.

In February, Oxfam, one of Britain’s largest charities, fired four workers and accepted the resignations of three others after an investigation found that senior officials for the organisation had hired prostitutes in Haiti, including for sex parties.

That same month, the BBC reported that men delivering aid on behalf of the United Nations and international charities had abused displaced women in Syria, trading food for sexual favors.

“Peter Dalglish’s arrest should be a ‘teachable moment’ for the humanitarian community to understand and recognize how predators exploit the cover of ‘heroism’ to commit crimes,” Lori Handrahan, a veteran humanitarian worker, wrote in an essay published on Medium. “Let’s be clear. Peter Dalglish is not a hero. He never was.”

Dalglish was charged with paedophilia in a district court this month. He faces up to 13 years in prison.

“He sexually abused children after giving them the false hope that they would be taken to a foreign country,” said Jeevan Shrestha, a spokesman for Nepal’s Chief Investigation Bureau.

Over several decades, Dalglish, a lawyer from Ontario, built a reputation as a deeply committed advocate for children in war-torn corners of the globe.

In the 1980s, he was a co-founder of Street Kids International, an organisation that has helped homeless youths around the world find jobs, and which was recently absorbed by Save the Children.

He also partnered with the American professional skateboarder Tony Hawk to empower children through sports, and worked with the United Nations in Liberian shantytowns after the 2014 outbreak of Ebola in West Africa.

But in Nepal, where he has lived off-and-on since 2002, some of those who knew him recalled unsettling requests.

In Kathmandu, at a school that provides free education to children from mountain communities, Dalglish was a popular volunteer in the early 2000s until he asked administrators to change a rule barring students from staying overnight with teachers.

Soon after, the relationship between the school’s staff members and Dalglish soured, a senior administrator said, and he was banned from the campus.

In an interview last month with The Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper, Dalglish spoke from behind the bars of a jail cell in Kathmandu, denying the charges against him and pointing out he had never before been the subject of a criminal investigation.

“But obviously, if you do the work that I do, with kids, you leave yourself open to criticism and suspicion,” he said. Dalglish declined further interview requests.

Rahul Chapagain, Dalglish’s lawyer, said evidence collected by the police could belong to visitors who rented the home through Airbnb. “Whatever they found, it does not necessarily belong to Peter,” he said.

Dalglish markets his cabin online as a “Himalayan Hideaway,” equipped with a Bose sound system, German bathroom fixtures and a lush garden. In his profile’s display picture, a beaming Dalglish embraces Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada.

On a recent day, the home was empty and locked, a ruffled comforter on the couch and board games tucked into an armoire visible through the windows. Around Kartike, a sleepy village where farmers wield sickles in watery fields, many expressed horror that a possible predator had been living just up the hill.

At a restaurant in town, the father of one of the boys in the case said he had worked as a labourer on Dalglish’s property for half a decade and had formed a warm bond with his boss. The father, Tamang, identifying himself only by his common last name to protect his family’s privacy, said he let his son, 14, occasionally spend the night at Dalglish’s home.

On the morning of April 7, Tamang was jolted awake by nearly a dozen police officers, who escorted him up a snaking path of slate-coloured tiles to Dalglish’s home, where his son was sleeping.

Inside the house, Dalglish spoke calmly to the police in English, a language Tamang did not understand.

Later, Tamang learned that plainclothes police officers had befriended his son, who told authorities that he, his 12-year-old cousin and at least two other boys had been abused by Dalglish.

In an interview, Tamang’s son said Dalglish had sexually assaulted him over a period of seven years, promising him a better life abroad if he kept quiet.

“I think the police were following Peter for a long time,” Tamang said. “The boys said they were asked to sleep naked and were raped.”

Until the boys stepped forward, villagers said there had been no signs of improper behaviour by Dalglish. He treated those who worked for him well and bought clothing, shoes and pencils for children in the village. It is unclear who initially tipped off the police about Dalglish.

A few days after the arrest, Tamang said he was summoned by the authorities to Dalglish’s home.

The police showed him a small, white box. Inside were dozens of photographs and film negatives of naked children, some of them playing in pools, Tamang said.

Chapagain, the lawyer, said Dalglish told him they were “pictures of poverty-stricken children and nothing sexually exploitative”.

But Tamang was unconvinced, characterising the experience as a nightmarish episode in his family’s ordeal.

“I never imagined Peter would do such a thing,” he said.

Order of Canada recipient Peter Dalglish found guilty of child sex assault in Nepal

11 June 2019

An Order of Canada recipient has been found guilty of sexually assaulting children in Nepal after a police investigation and trial his lawyers describe as a travesty of justice.

Sentencing for Peter Dalglish, expected in about two weeks, could see the well-known aid worker jailed for as long as 13 years.

“This has been like watching a wrongful conviction unfold in real time,” Dalglish’s Canadian lawyer, Nader Hasan, said in an interview Tuesday. “We have deep concerns about the process here, both from the perspective of procedural fairness of the court proceedings as well as certain tactics taken by the police and the state.”

The judge, who rendered his verdict late Monday, has yet to release his reasons for the guilty finding. Dalglish, 62, has denied any wrongdoing.

Originally from London, Ont., Dalglish has spent years working around the globe. Nepalese police arrested him in the early hours of April 8 last year in a raid on the mountain home he had built in the village of Kartike east of the capital of Kathmandu. Police alleged he had raped two Nepalese boys aged 11 and 14, who were with him.

Pushkar Karki, chief of the Central Investigation Bureau, said at the time Dalglish lured children from poor families with promises of education, jobs and trips, and then sexually abused them. Karki said other foreign men in Nepal had also been arrested on suspicion of pedophilia.

“There have been some instances where they were found working with charities,” Karki told the New York Times. “Our laws aren’t as strict as in foreign countries, and there is no social scrutiny like in developed countries.”

“There ought to have been reasonable doubt,” Hasan said. “The police intimidation tactics and the police bribes and the police threats ought to have been insurmountable evidence of not just not guilty, but of actual innocence.”

Hasan said the Nepalese legal system, which operates largely in secrecy, bears little resemblance to anything in Canada _ or many other countries. Among other problems, courts do not record proceedings or produce transcripts, leading to confusion about what witnesses actually said.

His lawyers say in one incident, a witness helpful to the defence was testifying when the judge excused himself from the courtroom to go eat dinner. They say he told parties to carry on without him and that he would catch up with the court clerk afterwards.

Hasan said Dalglish’s family — his ex-wife and daughter live in the Netherlands and his brothers in Ontario — as well as friends have been standing by him. In addition, he has strong support in Nepal, where two young men he had previously mentored have been visiting him twice daily in prison in Dhulikhel near Kathmandu to take him food.

“Obviously, (it) was emotionally devastating for him –as it would be for anyone, particularly someone who is innocent,” Hasan said of the guilty finding. “But he’s a remarkably resilient human being and it’s helpful that he has a very strong support system. That helps him stay positive.”

Dalglish, who had spent years doing humanitarian work in Nepal, co-founded a Canadian charity called Street Kids International in the late 1980s. He has worked for several humanitarian agencies, including UN Habitat in Afghanistan and the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response in Liberia. He was named a member of the Order of Canada in late 2016.

In a statement emailed to Global News, Hasan said Dalglish’s family, friends and supporters were “deeply troubled” by Monday’s verdict and remain “steadfastly convinced of Peter’s innocence.”

“The local legal team in Nepal did not merely raise a reasonable doubt; they demonstrated that Peter was factually innocent,” the statement reads.

Hasan said they remain “optimistic” that Dalglish will be exonerated by Nepal’s appellate courts.

I am also intending to write a report on the time Peter Dalglish worked with Ethiopian vulnerable children during the infamous famine of 1984. I am reaching out to the publicist of Bob Geldof, who funded most of his activities for comment. If anyone has any info, please DM me.

Eliza Manningham-Buller has been Chair of Wellcome since 2015, having served as a Governor since 2008. A conference, held at Cambridge and financially supported by the Wellcome Trust, made headlines:

It is financially supported by CRASSH, the Wellcome Trust, the Sexual Divisions Study Group of the British Sociological Association, the French Institute, Northumbria University, the Laboratoire de Sociologie of the University of Lausanne, and The Gender Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES).

Conference summary

This conference brings together social and political scientists, feminist scholars, sexologists, psychiatrists, historians of science, as well as mental health practitioners and sexual rights activists to critically explore the sexual classifications produced by the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published in May 2013. The DSM is the standard reference for the classification of mental disorders, and its first major revision since 1994 is consequently an important global event. The conference will explore which categories of ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’, ‘healthy’ and ‘pathological’ sexualities and identities the new manual produces, and critically scrutinise their consequences for diagnostic practices as well as their wider social and political implications. The conference will take place on 4 and 5 July 2013 at the interdisciplinary Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) of the University of Cambridge. It is financially supported by CRASSH, the Wellcome Trust, the Sexual Divisions Study Group of the British Sociological Association, the French Institute, Northumbria University, the Laboratoire de Sociologie of the University of Lausanne, and The Gender Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES).

Peter Dalglish’s final hearing pending, likely to be sentenced

7 Sept 2018

KATHMANDU — While Peter Dalglish’s final hearing is pending, a source has revealed to Kathmandu Tribune that Peter is likely to be sentenced for ten years or so according to the old law.

Dalglish’s last hearing was on August 9 and the next hearing isn’t announced yet by the Kavre court.

With a lighter sentencing, Peter Dalglish will escape the new law’s judgment. Dalglish had come to Nepal on a tourist visa when he was arrested on April 9.

“Another school in Nepal says it banned him from its premises years ago, citing alleged conduct toward children that made administrators uneasy.”

Order of Canada recipient Peter Dalglish accused of abusing children he pledged to help

April 22, 2018

A Canadian man who spent decades working with children’s organizations and received the Order of Canada for his global contributions is now locked in a crowded detention cell in Kathmandu accused of having sex with minors.

Peter Dalglish, 60, has been a leading international advocate for combatting child poverty. But early on the morning of April 7, police descended on his home in Nepal and took him away at gunpoint.

At the time of his arrest, two boys − one 12, another 14 − were in the house with him. Police say they also found photos inside the home of naked children. Mr. Dalglish has not been formally charged, but is being held while police investigate; local courts can authorize up to 25 days for such investigations. So far, three alleged victims have spoken to police. The two boys found in the house gave detailed descriptions of his alleged sexual contact with them, the father of one boy told The Globe and Mail.

Mr. Dalglish, speaking from behind bars, denied any improper contact with children, while his lawyer said the photographs are of the sort a tourist might take of unclothed children in impoverished areas. Police have yet to submit a detailed charge sheet against him. His lawyer says he will plead not guilty. “I’ve never had a civil or a criminal prosecution, ever,” Mr. Dalglish told The Globe. “But obviously, if you do the work that I do, with kids, you leave yourself open to criticism. And suspicion.”

His arrest has nevertheless brought new scrutiny to his decades of humanitarian work, which placed him in regular and close contact with children in numerous countries.

His travels took him across the globe. He delivered aid to famine-struck Ethiopia; worked with the children of murdered parents in Guatemala; evacuated children from war-torn Sudan and provided technical training to kids in Khartoum; taught sex workers’ children in Calcutta; responded to the Ebola crisis in Liberia; founded an organization that helped street kids in numerous countries; and oversaw skills training in Afghanistan.

In Kabul, he once held weekend classes for children in a bunker. He described them to the publication Tes, formerly known as the Times Educational Supplement, as “like Dead Poets Society, but with a ragtag group of kids whose entire lives have been defined by war.” At one point, 42 children showed up.

Now, his conduct is being re-evaluated by organizations around the world. One international school in Thailand that placed him under investigation late last year has removed him from its board of directors, citing concerns about his presence around children. Another school in Nepal says it banned him from its premises years ago, citing alleged conduct toward children that made administrators uneasy.

Until his arrest, however, that undercurrent had done little to mar the global profile of Mr. Dalglish as an erudite, roguishly charming leader wholly devoted to the well-being of children. Kids in Nepal and around the world loved his willingness to buck convention and spin lessons from war zones and Elizabethan poetry alike. Foreign donors were captivated by his spunk and inspirational tales. One of his recent endeavours involves supplying water to 11 Nepali villages, using US$300,000 provided by a Canadian donor. His citation from the Governor-General’s office for the Order of Canada in 2016 says he “has devoted his life to helping children escape poverty.”

But Nepali police accuse him of abusing those he pledged to help.

“He was influencing [children] to do sexual acts,” said Pushkar Karki, one of Nepal’s top police officers and director of the country’s Central Investigation Bureau. “They were lured.”

He added: “A person can be a very good person in society, but the crime they commit is different. A crime is a crime.”

Police in Nepal received a tip about Mr. Dalglish around 3 1/2 months ago from a local organization. Later, they also received notice from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (the RCMP declined comment on an investigation in another country). Mr. Dalglish was travelling at the time, but “he was on our radar as soon as he landed in Nepal,” Mr. Karki said. After he was arrested, police found photographs in his home of “a lot of children in various poses,” Mr. Karki said. “Some of them are naked, some of them are not.”

He believes the children “are from around the world.”

The house Peter Dalglish built in Nagarkot, Nepal.

Nathan VanderKlippe/The Globe and Mail

In March, after speaking at a prominent international school in Beijing, Mr. Dalglish returned to Nepal, where he went trekking.

Unbeknownst to him, plainclothes police went in his absence to a house he had built in Nagarkot, roughly two hours by road from Kathmandu. The three-storey residence is equipped with a Finnish stone fireplace and overlooks a panorama of vertiginous terraces. On a clear day, the snow-capped Himalayas rim the horizon.

The officers who came here “said they were from an organization and wanted to help kids,” said a Nepali villager who works for Mr. Dalglish at the house in Nagarkot and whose 14-year-old son was one of the boys the plainclothes officers befriended in what police called a trust-building exercise. Police say the boy described for them sexual contact with Mr. Dalglish. (The Globe is not naming the father to protect the identity of the alleged victims.)

After Mr. Dalglish returned from the trek, officers pounced, a dozen of them arriving at his Nagarkot house at dawn. They found two boys − the villager’s son and his 12-year-old nephew inside, and seized Mr. Dalglish’s computer and mobile phone.

Mr. Dalglish was taken away “with a gun to his head,” his lawyer, Rahul Chapagain, said . But the police case against him is “just an accusation, or allegations. It has not been presented to the court,” he said. Mr. Dalglish has told him that the photos, for example, are of “children from places he has been travelling around the world, especially African children,” some of whom wore no clothing. “It’s not a single child in a room in a [sexual condition], but it’s more of a natural state: They were naked.”

Mrr. Chapagain has not seen the images himself; police have yet to formally submit evidence. But “obviously we are pleading not guilty,” he said.

In the days since Mr. Dalglish’s arrest, the boys have given statements and undergone medical examinations. The father of the 14-year-old boy also provided a written statement to police, parts of which he described to The Globe in an interview.

“The kids told me that they took a shower [and] got naked” with Mr. Dalglish, he said.

“He did that and also played with their genitals,” the father said. Mr. Dalglish also had intercourse with them, he said. “It’s just unthinkable.”

Mr. Dalglish was married with a daughter when he moved into a house in Kathmandu in 2002. Neither his daughter nor his wife, from whom he has since separated, ever lived with him in the country.

However, young Nepali males regularly stayed at his house. He often entertained young people he financially supported − most of them male, according to five people who know him − bringing them to his place to eat, read and watch cartoons.

Mr. Dalglish sponsored school fees for numerous students, sometimes bringing them on overseas travel to events such as the Model United Nations. The children he supported “were poor but really talented,” said Chiri Maharjan, who once worked as a gardener for Mr. Dalglish, becoming such a trusted friend that his name is on the title for the Nagarkot home.

One boy he found carrying bags for Japanese tourists, another at a community learning centre. He found Rishi Bastakoti, who is now 20, selling postcards on the side of the road when he was 12 years old. The boy told Mr. Dalglish that his mother had recently died and his father “doesn’t care about me. I told him all this story, and he said, ‘Maybe I’ll sponsor you.’”

Soon, Mr. Dalglish began sending money. “School fees, uniform, books, everything,” Mr. Bastakoti said. A child in Nepal can be educated for as little as $750 a year. The money continued through high school and then college, where Mr. Bastakoti studied hotel management for two years. He had an opportunity to travel with Mr. Dalglish, too, accompanying him twice to Model UN events in Singapore.

Mr. Dalglish also helped his family, providing money to rebuild his grandfather’s house after the 2015 earthquake that struck Nepal.

“He is more than a father to us. He’s a great guy,” Mr. Bastakoti said. There was no sexual contact between the two, he said.

Mr. Dalglish “hasn’t done any bad things to us,” added Krishna Gurung, 21, another Nepali man sponsored by Mr. Dalglish for roughly a decade. “He always said ‘Stay away from drugs, stay away from bad people.’ I don’t believe that he has done those kind of things to other people.”

Children play at Shree Mangal Dvip Boarding School in Kathmandu, where Peter Dalglish once taught leadership classes.

Elsewhere, however, the interactions between Mr. Dalglish and students raised suspicions, including on the grounds of Shree Mangal Dvip Boarding School, which provides free Buddhist education to lower-caste children from impoverished high-altitude locations. Situated in Kathmandu, the school educates hundreds of children who might otherwise remain illiterate, housing them in dormitories and teaching them English.

In 2003, Mr. Dalglish volunteered to teach a weekly leadership class at the school. He was a “really, really challenging, wonderful teacher. Kids loved what he did,” said Shirley Blair, a Canadian teacher who is the school’s long-time director. Some 40 children might attend a class.

Then something happened that worried Ms. Blair. One day, Mr. Dalglish emerged from class surrounded by children, “and he was trying to convince me to bend a rule to let kids stay overnight,” Ms. Blair said. She refused, irritated that he would seek to undermine her authority.

But standing next to her was a visitor, a teacher from the United States, who watched the exchange and expressed concern about Mr. Dalglish’s relationship with the children. “It was like a blinding flash of lightning for me,” Ms. Blair said. (The Globe verified this account with the visiting teacher.)

Mr. Dalglish had invited the school’s students to his home for dinner on occasion and administrators had “heard about some suspicious behaviours with our children,” said Khenpo Chonyi Rangdrol, who was principal at the school from 2004 to 2011.

But an investigation failed to uncover clear evidence. Mr. Rangdrol and Ms. Blair confronted Mr. Dalglish nevertheless, couching their concern in terms of alcohol: Perhaps he was drinking too much, and “once you are drunk you don’t know what you are doing,” Mr. Rangdrol said.

Eventually, Ms. Blair says she banned Mr. Dalglish from the school. “I said you are persona non grata.” In their final conversation, about seven years ago, she says she told him “You need help.”

Mr. Dalglish disputes this. He left the school “for different reasons,” he said in an interview, but primarily because work took him to Afghanistan. “I was never banned from the school,” he said.

He spoke from a concrete detention room in downtown Kathmandu, inside the guarded compound of the Central Investigation Bureau. He and 10 other men share a concrete cell that measures roughly seven by four paces. Visitors must provide fingerprints and surrender identification and phones to see him.

“This is obviously a horrible circumstance to be in,” he said on a recent day when approached by a Globe reporter, whom he greeted cheerily. He began by introducing some of his cellmates − they are “a really good team,” he said − and offering flattery about the professionalism of his treatment.

“This is not the Hyatt,” he said, wearing a camouflage-patterned T-shirt. But, he added, the experience has “showed me some of the best of Nepal in terms of the men I’m sharing the cell with, all of whom have been supportive and kind and protective of me.”

Leaning against the bars of his cell as he spoke, he answered questions for nearly 15 minutes.

Asked whether he had showered and had sex with the boys in his house, he said “No, never. Never, never.” He “completely” denied any inappropriate sexual relations with children at any time.

The boys in his house at the time of his arrest, he said “are people I’ve known for some time. So it’s not as if, you know, I’ve picked somebody off the street.

“You should also know that they were not found in my bedroom,” he said. One was on a couch just outside his upstairs sleeping quarters. Another was on the main floor.

The son of the villager who spoke to The Globe was in the house for his own well-being, Mr. Dalglish said, since the boy’s home village is plagued by alcohol problems. And after the father married again, his new wife “doesn’t necessarily want the first wife’s children around,” Mr. Dalglish said. The boy, he added “never stayed in my house unless his father was on the grounds.”

The father contradicted parts of that account, saying his son is welcome to stay with his new wife. His son stayed with Mr. Dalglish because Mr. Dalglish invited him, he said. The same was true for the nephew. “One day, Peter told my son, ‘Call that boy to stay over,’” the father said.

When The Globe continued to ask questions, Mr. Dalglish said “We should probably wrap things up.” Told police now have three alleged victims, one of whose allegations date back more than a decade, he said: “Let’s talk to the judge and we’ll see what happens in court. Thank you, my friend.”

What transpires in that court is likely to be watched intently at the organizations where Mr. Dalglish came into contact with children over his lengthy career.

In interviews, he has described taking on an activist role in his teens, before going on to graduate from Dalhousie University law school and Stanford in the United States. He briefly worked in the Prime Minister’s Office under Pierre Trudeau before taking work as a lawyer. Then, in 1984, he was seized by images of children starving in Ethiopia. He organized an aid shipment and then accompanied it to Ethiopia.

While there, “I saw these kids and I realized they were the most extraordinary children I had ever met and my life would be working for them,” he said in an interview with WTV, the student channel at Wellington College in Britain.

It’s a story he has recounted to students around the world, typically elite high schools, such as the United World Colleges, where he would encourage young people to consider avenues in life outside of the traditional pathways to wealth and prestige, such as law and business.

Now, some of those schools are severing ties with him. At the time of his arrest, Mr. Dalglish was a board member at the United World College Thailand (UWCT). In a statement, UWCT said Mr. Dalglish had limited contact with students and was present for only four board meetings since his appointment in 2017.

Last November, according to the school, “speculation surfaced about potential inappropriate conduct involving children” − although the speculation did not involve children from UWCT. The school launched an inquiry, led by an external forensic psychologist, and spoke to those pupils who had the most direct contact with Mr. Dalglish. It concluded no students had been assaulted or exploited.

The school said that once the inquiry was complete, concerns were raised about the appropriateness of allowing Mr. Dalglish to be around the children. The school said it had decided to suspend Mr. Dalglish from the board, but he was arrested before the suspension was issued. It has now taken effect, according to the statement issued by the school.

“I feel deeply wounded, and I really regret if I’ve done anything to damage the reputations of these schools, or their leaders,” Mr. Dalglish said.

The breadth of his career means many others are similarly taking stock.

He was the founder of Street Kids International, which has now merged with Save the Children. In the years that followed, he taught at his alma mater, Upper Canada College. He became the first director of Youth Service International (Canada’s volunteer civilian corps for young people), executive director of the South Asia Children’s Fund and a senior adviser to the AWR Lloyd Foundation, according to the foundation’s website.

UCC said it has no record of complaints or other information suggesting sexual assault by Mr. Dalglish. His image has been deleted from the AWR Lloyd site; a spokesperson said he “has had no formal or active relationship with our firm.”

Mr. Dalglish also held a series of senior United Nations posts, including with the International Labor Organization, the World Health Organization and UN-Habitat.

The WHO said it received no complaints about his behaviour while he worked there. UN-Habitat said that “based on initial consultations” it had “found that there were no reports or allegations on any misconduct during his tenure with UN-Habitat.” The ILO said it “had no association with Mr. Dalglish since the conclusion of his engagement in 2005. In view of the allegations made against him, the ILO is undertaking its own examination of these matters.”

In Nepal, meanwhile, police are grappling with a series of foreign pedophiles in their country. Mr. Karki has had recent cases from Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. In 2015, a Nepali court jailed another Canadian, Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh, for child molestation. Maiti Nepal, a non-profit that works to combat sex trafficking, has observed a rise in local sex-related crimes in recent years, following a crackdown in Thailand that has displaced some of those activities to other countries.

Mr. Karki worries that what has made Nepal such an attractive place to tourists − its welcoming people, its deference to foreigners − has also made it vulnerable. “The tiger is killed because of its nice, beautiful skin. It is not preserved,” he said.

Among critics of international organizations, the arrest of Mr. Dalglish has renewed calls for greater scrutiny of foreign officials dispatched to impoverished countries, particularly those who occupy privileged positions with children. “You have to remember that UN officials have immunity from prosecution. So quite often, crimes are committed by UN officials because they know they can easily get away with them,” said Rasna Warah, a Kenyan columnist and author of Unsilenced: Unmasking the United Nations’ Culture of Cover-ups, Corruption and Impunity.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said “we must end impunity for those guilty of sexual exploitation and abuse.”

But large organizations must do more, including the installation of software to help spot pedophiles, said Lori Handrahan, author of Epidemic: America’s Trade in Child Rape.

Because, experts say, history shows that those who hurt children are also often those who serve them.

”Anybody who is going to gain access to children has to groom everybody around them first − and they do that by pretending that they care so much about children,” Ms. Handrahan said. That is “a classic profile of a pedophile.”

Former Senior United Nations Official Facing Pedophilia Charges in Nepal

KATHMANDU, April 8: Former UN-Habitat country representative for Afghanistan, Peter John Dalglish, has been arrested from Kavrepalanchowk district for his alleged involvement in pedophilia, a psychiatric disorder that leads to sexual attraction toward children.

The 60-year-old Canadian, who served as UN- Habitat country representative for Afghanistan from 2010 to 2014, was arrested by a team of the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) from the house of Chinkaji Maharjan at Mandan Deupur Municipality in Kavrepalanchowk district on Saturday morning.

CIB, which was closely monitoring his activities, arrested Dalglish with two boys aged 12 and 14 from his room at Maharjan’s house. The boys were immediately rescued while Dalglish was brought to Kathmandu for further investigation. 

The CIB has filed a case of child sexual abuse (pedophilia) against him and initiated further investigation. Dalglish has been remanded to judicial custody for five days for further investigation by the Kathmandu District Court.

DIG Pushkar Karki, director of the CIB, said that preliminary investigation by CIB suggested that Dalglish might have sexually abused many children.

Sixty-year-old Peter John Dalglish, a Canadian, had served as UN- Habitat country representative for Afghanistan from 2010 to 2014.

In Nepal, Dalglish, as the founder of the Himalayan Community Foundation, a non-governmental humanitarian organization to help poor and deprived families with their children’s education, has been running various projects related to education and drinking water for the deprived communities in Kavrepalanchowk district for the last two years, according to CIB.

Our preliminary investigation has found that he has been targeting children from poor financial backgrounds and sexually abusing them. By promising the family members that he would educate their children, take them abroad and also provide them jobs after they finish their education, he had been sexually abusing children. Given his age and his high profile in the humanitarian sector, he would easily win trust of the family members and later abuse their children,” DIG Karki elaborated.

Apart from working in UN-Habitant as country representative, he has also worked in top positions of other UN bodies. After working in UN-Habitant for four years, Dalglish had joined the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response in Liberia in 2015 where he worked for a year. In 2016, Dalglish joined the World Health Organization (WHO) as a senior urban advisor to coordinate global efforts to stop the spread of the Ebola epidemic. He is also one of the founders of Street Kids International, a Canada-based non-governmental organization established in 1988.

Dalglish, who was born in Ontario, is a graduate from Stanford University, US.

“He had arrived in Nepal three months ago. After we got information about his sexual misconduct from security agencies in other countries, we had been closely following him and managed to arrest him,” DIG Karki said.  

According to DIG Karki, Dalglish might have sexually abused children in Kathmandu as well as in Pokhara. “Not just that, he might have been involved in pedophilia in other countries as well where he served as UN official in the past. We are investigating into the matter,” DIG Karki said.
As per the law, he may be jailed for eight to twelve years if convicted of the crime.

With his arrest, the number of pedophiles arrested in the last two years has reached seven. Six of the arrested individuals are foreigners, according to police. Among the arrested foreigners, four are above 60 years.

According to Wikipedia, Peter Dalglish “(born 20 May 1957), is a Canadian humanitarian and founder of the Street Kids International charity and the Trails Youth Initiative program. He is currently the Country Representative for UN-Habitat in Afghanistan”. He is also an alumnus of Stanford University and Dalhousie University. Dalglish has worked as Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Party for UN-Habitat in Kabul, Afghanistan between October 2010 to December 2014. He also became the Chief of Party until the end of his mission in July 2015 from December 2014.According to Nepal’s law, Dalglish will be sentenced to jail for 15 years and has to compensate to the victims too.

Dalglish was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2017.

Peter Dalglish is the founder of Street Kids International, and is a leading authority on working children, street children, and war-affected children. He was arrested by Nepali police in connection with a pedophilia investigation.

One of the world’s leading experts on humanitarian work with street children and children affected by war has been arrested on pedophilia charges.

Canadian humanitarian worker Peter Dalglish, who helped found the charity Street Kids International, was taken in by police in Nepal on Sunday (April 8), Xinhua news agency reported.

The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal Police said they wanted to question Dalglish over claims he was involved in pedophile activities in Kavre district, around 50 kilometers north of the capital, Kathmandu.

An initial investigation claims the 60-year-old had offered children foreign trips and better education before sexually abusing them.

My Republica reported that two children, aged 12 and 14, had allegedly been abused by Dalglish and rescued by authorities.

CIB chief and Deputy Inspector General of Police, Pushkar Karki, said that an organization outside the country had tipped off the police about Dalglish.

“Under the guise of community worker, claiming to educate poor kids and provide necessary support, he had been sexually exploiting these children. We have developed a sound network to track down and arrest pedophiles entering Nepal. We had been following Dalglish’s activities for the last two weeks after we were tipped about his activities,” he said, according to the Kathmandu Post.

Dalglish had been running the Himalayan Community Foundation in the country since 2015. Prior to his stint in Nepal, he had worked for a number of United Nations agencies and was the U.N.-Habitat country representative for Afghanistan.

He was also part of the U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response in Liberia until January 2016 and has been advisor to the World Health Organization to help tackle the spread of the disease.

Save the Children inquiry over response to harassment claims

Brendan Cox resigned from his role at Save the Children after complaints

Brendan Cox resigned from his role at Save the Children after complaints

Save the Children is to be investigated by the regulator over how it handled serious allegations of misconduct and harassment against senior staff.

The inquiry will focus on how the charity dealt with complaints that Justin Forsyth and Brendan Cox, its former chief executive and policy director respectively, sexually harassed young women employees.

The Charity Commission opened a statutory inquiry after receiving “new information”, it said last night. It is concerned that the charity may have withheld the full extent of allegations from the regulator in 2015 when the alleged incidents were first reported. It is a blow to Save the Children, which has commissioned its own review of its working culture. Kevin Watkins, the chief executive who was a trustee at the time of…

Save the Children whistleblower warns it should not have taken SIX years for anyone to quit over ‘inappropriate behaviour’ after chairman Sir Alan Parker resigns amid cover up claims

19 Apr 2018

  • Sir Alan said there was an urgent need to rebuild confidence in the sector
  • The former PR man’s ten-year term of office was due to end in eight months time

A whistleblower at Save the Children has complained it took six years for anyone resign over claims of ‘inappropriate behaviour’ at the charity.

Chairman Sir Alan Parker resigned last night following claims of a high-level cover-up of allegations against two executives at the charity’s UK arm.

Chief executive Justin Forsyth and policy director Brendan Cox have both quit over claims against them in recent weeks. Sir Alan faces no allegations personally.

But whistleblower Alexia Pepper de Caires today blasted the failure of the charity to intervene sooner, including after a report on misbehaviour in 2015.

Ms de Caires, who left the charity that year, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: ‘There was no culpability at the time and I’ve seen very little since then.

‘I haven’t seen enough evidence of the culture changing.’

She also said she was ‘curious about why it’s taken six years’ for someone to step down ‘who was in a position of power at the time’.

Ms de Caires told Today: ‘In my view this is not complex at all, this has always been very simple.

‘The message that we know and live and breath is to value women equally, which we have not seen at Save the Children’.

Sir Alan Parker resigned following claims of a high-level cover-up of allegations against two executives at the charity’s UK arm.

It comes a week after the Charity Commission said it was carrying out a statutory inquiry into Save the Children over the claims.

The watchdog is looking at whether the charity adequately reported what it knew about allegations against former chief executive Justin Forsyth and policy director Brendan Cox.

He also brought in his own lawyers to help with the cases instead of using the charity’s legal advisers.

As a result, formal investigations were abandoned and both men left discreetly.

Sir Alan has always denied a cover-up of the allegations.

The source said: ‘There were HR procedures that were in place to deal with Brendan and Justin.

‘Lawyers were contacted … then Alan came in, in both cases within 48 hours, saw the advice of Save the Children’s lawyers, ignored that advice and quickly brought in new lawyers.

‘HR were totally across it and said we have to deal with this, but Alan wasn’t happy … they did not follow Save [the Children]’s HR protocol. After Brendan left, the investigation into what he did just stopped.

‘The original lawyers’ letters are in the safe at Save [the Children] and the Commission are going to see them.’

Sir Alan is founder and chairman of the PR firm Brunswick. Gordon Brown is godfather to his youngest son, and when David Cameron left No10 he lived briefly at Sir Alan’s London home.

A 2015 report found Sir Alan’s ‘very close’ relationship with former Save the Children boss Mr Forsyth may have affected how he responded to complaints. Three women employees accused Mr Forsyth of inappropriate behaviour, for which he said he had apologised. He allegedly sent inappropriate texts and commented on what young female staff were wearing. It was claimed if the women did not reply, he would continue to pester them. Allegations were also made against Mr Cox, the charity’s former director of policy. He stepped down after admitting he had ‘made mistakes’.

Sir Alan was chairman of trustees at Save the Children UK when Mr Forsyth and Mr Cox left in 2015. He then went on to chair the board of Save the Children International.

The leaked 2015 report found that Sir Alan was ‘less than supportive’ when harassment claims were made by women working for the charity.

It described how Save the Children’s head of HR alerted Sir Alan to the issues. He said Sir Alan had said: ‘Justin Forsyth is very important to the organisation; people behave very differently when they’re abroad; they would have been tired; they would have needed some mutual support; what were the complainants doing by agreeing to go to his hotel room in the first place.’

The report said the head of HR was ‘frustrated’ by Sir Alan’s response ‘which he feared was a result of Sir Alan Parker and Justin Forsyth being close’.

One complainant was quoted as saying: ‘It’s more about who Alan is, and having Alan and his best mate Justin sort of talking to each other about how best to handle these girls.’

Two months ago Mr Forsyth admitted ‘personal mistakes’ over the claims he sent young women a barrage of text messages. The former aide to Tony Blair, who went on to become deputy executive director at Unicef, said he had engaged in ‘unsuitable and thoughtless conversations’ which he accepts ’caused offence and hurt’.

He faced three complaints between 2011 and 2015, the year he left the organisation. He later resigned from his job at Unicef.

Mr Forsyth also faced questions over whether he protected Mr Cox, the widower of murdered MP Jo Cox, after he was accused of inappropriate behaviour towards women.

Mr Cox admitted he had behaved in a way that caused women ‘hurt and offence’.

In 2016 alone, Save the Children investigated more than 200 complaints of misconduct against staff.

Last month, protesters from the Women’s Equality Party interrupted a Save the Children board meeting to call for Sir Alan’s resignation.

Alexia Pepper de Caires, a former employee of the charity, read out a statement saying men at Save the Children UK had ‘disempowered women, sexualised their presence in the workforce and minimised their experiences’.

Sir Alan was due to leave in December but ‘felt it right at this moment to bring forward his succession’, the charity said. Announcing his resignation, he wrote: ‘Given the complex mix of challenges the organisation and the sector is facing, it is my view that a change is needed.’

He added: ‘In Save the Children UK we dealt with some unacceptable workplace behaviour, involving harassment, in our head office in Farringdon in 2012 and 2015. These issues are now subject to further review by the Charity Commission.’

Pernille Lopez, on behalf of the Save the Children Association and its international board, said: ‘We would like to thank Alan for his immense contribution to Save the Children over the past ten years.’

Who is Sir Alan Parker? The multi-millionaire PR guru who goes on beach holidays with the Camerons

Sir Alan Parker is a remarkably well-connected PR mogul who can claim allegiances across the political divide.

The son of a former British Rail chairman, he is reputed to be worth £130 million thanks to the success of Brunswick, the UK’s biggest financial PR firm, which he founded in 1987.

Before turning his hand to public relations, Sir Alan worked on an oil rig and managed rock bands.

A rebellious teenager, his anti-Establishment attitude meant he was denied a place at Oxford despite an excellent academic record. His unconventional approach to business is said to persist in his tendency to kick off his shoes during meetings.

Sir Alan, 62, started Brunswick in his parents’ front room in 1987, but the firm now boasts many high-profile clients, including EMI, Pearson, Reuters and Time Warner. It is thought to have advised more than a quarter of FTSE 100 listed firms.

Said to be a natural Labour supporter, Sir Alan was involved in attempts to rebrand Gordon Brown’s public image during his ailing premiership. Mr Brown is godfather to Sir Alan’s son, William.

But the PR guru has also holidayed with David Cameron. He and the former Tory leader were pictured hitting the beach together in South Africa. Samantha Cameron is an ambassador for Save the Children.

Sir Alan later lent one of his properties – a £16.8 million seven-bedroom townhouse in Holland Park – to Mr Cameron and his family after they left Downing Street.

The PR mogul was among business leaders who accompanied Mr Cameron on a trade mission to China in 2013 before being knighted for services to business, charitable giving and philanthropy.

In 2001, Sir Alan’s 24-year marriage to Caroline, an artist, ended in divorce. In 2007, he married Jane Hardman, who had worked at Brunswick. Both Mr Cameron and Mr Brown were guests at the wedding.

One of Sir Alan’s siblings is Nathaniel Parker, the actor best known for playing Inspector Lynley in the BBC crime series. His other brother Oliver is a respected director.

He is said to have use of a chauffeured Bentley and collects art by Sir Henry Moore as well as rare books. A keen angler, he owns half a £1.8million salmon beat – a stretch of river with fishing rights – on the Tay in Scotland.

According to the Sunday Times Rich List in 2017, Sir Alan is worth around £128million – a rise of £3million from the previous year.

Richard William Huckle (born 14 May 1986) is a convicted British serial sex offender. He was arrested by Britain’s National Crime Agency after a tip-off from Australian Police and convicted of 71 counts of serious sexual assaults against children while posing as a teacher, photographer and devout Christian in Malaysia.[3]

Huckle has been described as one of Britain’s worst ever paedophiles, placing him alongside Robert Black, Sidney Cooke, Ian Watkins and Jimmy Savile, despite only being 28 years old at the time of his arrest[4][5][6]

Mariza Abdulkadir, interim executive director of the Malaysian charity Protect and Save the Children Association, told the Mail: ‘Yes, of course we have asked why no-one stepped forward to stop him. We cannot understand why there was no collaboration between the NCA and our own police.

On 6 June 2016, however, the National Crime Agency referred itself to the police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Commission, due to the fact that they were aware of Huckle’s continued attendance at two churches in the UK up until the time of his re-arrest in January 2015 but did not contact them until sentencing had already begun. The IPCC will look into whether the NCA had acted appropriately and whether more could have been done to determine whether Huckle abused any children in the UK through his relationship with the churches.[29][36]

‘A beloved niece’ Lord Kinnock weeps on TV following the killing of Jo Cox

An emotional Lord Kinnock had tears running down his cheek as he described Mrs Cox as a “beloved niece”.

He told BBC Breakfast: “We’ve known Jo since she came to work for Glenys in the European Parliament 20 years ago, and it would be no exaggeration to say that both of us felt about her as if she was a beloved niece, because that’s the kind of relationship it was.

“She was wonderful company but she was also a ferociously effective political activist and she showed that before she became a Member of Parliament and we were hugely proud when she was selected and then elected.

“We both went up to speak for her and it was obvious then that the community had taken Jo to her heart – just like everybody else did.

Sir Alan Parker, the charity’s former chairman, was questioned by MPs on the international development select committee about the handling of investigations into claims against the former senior executives Justin Forsyth and Brendan Cox.

The Charity Commission is investigating the handling of cases in 2012 and 2015 and the organisation has stopped bidding for funds from the Department for International Development pending the outcome.

Sir Alan was asked why Save the Children had spent money donated by the public to hire the City law firm Harbottle & Lewis to send “aggressive” letters to media.

Vital information may be in the Barbara Castle archive

At least three people have tried unsuccessfully to access the (Barbara) Castle files to see if they contain the (Dickens) dossier, having found a lot of the material closed. Papers with restricted access include diary entries and correspondence with family members.

All of her correspondence with the former Labour Home Secretary Jack Straw between October 1981 and February 1999, as well as all correspondence between her and Neil and Glenys Kinnock between November 1981 and August 1996, is also marked “closed” on the library’s database, along with a letter she wrote to Neil Kinnock in December 1999.

Righton’s very close friend/fellow PIE member Charles Napier (half-brother to dominatrix client, John Whittingdale MP) was employed as a teacher by the British Council in Cairo even though he was already on List 99 as a banned teacher after his early conviction.

Present enquiries into paedophile cover-ups are likely to examine how Charles Napier managed to continue teaching even after his first conviction for indecent assault in 1972.  He was banned from teaching in the UK, but emigrated and by the late 1970s (already an active member of the Paedophile Information Exchange) was employed at a school in Sweden.

Former MI6 deputy director Sir Peter Hayman was married to Charles Napier’s cousin

Around the same time that Napier emigrated, his cousin’s husband – fellow paedophile Sir Peter Hayman – had returned from a stint as High Commissioner in Canada to become deputy director of MI6.

Incredibly Napier later became an assistant head of studies with the British Council in Cairo, and then taught in Istanbul.

On the 19 July 2015, Australia’s 60 Minutes broadcast an investigation of an alleged paedophile ring, into which abused children were supplied by one of PIE founders Peter Righton, who was also a former director of education in the National Institute for Social Work and a legal aide to the British government. The alleged network was said to include senior politicians from all three main parties, such as Leon Brittan, Greville Janner and Cyril Smith alongside a former head of MI6 Sir Peter Telford Hayman.[49]

Met detective removed from post after saying he wanted to approach Paul Boateng about child sex abuse case

Justice Lowell Goddard is chairing the inquiry into historical child sex abuse allegations at a number of institutions, including Lambeth Council’s care homes

A social worker, Teresa Johnson, who had worked with Carroll at Angell Road, said she had seen Mr Boateng at the home on up to six occasions during the mid-1980s.

Another witness claimed he had seen Mr Boateng during caravan holidays for children run by a charity, called the Association of Combined Youth Clubs. Carroll was a member of the ACYC.

The witness claimed Carroll had boasted of his friendship with Mr Boateng.

This witness told Newsnight: “John Carroll would regularly talk about him [Paul Boateng] being able to open doors for him.”

Lord Boateng told the BBC he has no recollection of going to Angell Road or of meeting Mr Carroll.

Regarding the exact nature of his relationship with the boy, Janner said: ‘Long ago, when [he] was a deprived youngster living in a Leicestershire children’s home, my family and I tried unsuccessfully to help him. Now, after some 15 years of Beck’s influence, they [have] combined to make disgraceful and totally untrue allegations against me.’

The statement met with widespread applause in the Commons and warm words from such allies as Keith Vaz MP, who described Janner as ‘a brave man’ and whip Derek Foster, who passed on party leader Neil Kinnock’s ‘tremendous support.’

“Europe Minister, Lady Kinnock, was moved to another portfolio on the same day as she had to answer this question from Lord Pannick in the Upper House: ‘Will the Government please allocate urgently time in this House for a full debate on this matter in the interests of all those who lost their lives in the Lockerbie murders?’ A full debate on the Lockerbie disaster could have proved embarrassing to the government, and especially to Glenys Kinnock because she founded a charity on 21 December 1989 in memory of the most prominent of Lockerbie’s 270 victims – UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson.

A number of peers have also become patrons – Labour peers Lord Waheed Alli, Lord Michael Cashman, Baroness Joan Bakewell and Baroness Helena Kennedy, and Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Liz Barker.

On June 26, 1997, Mr Tatchell wrote a start­ling letter to the Guardian newspaper.

In it, he said:

‘While it may be impossible to condone paedophilia, it is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful.

Is this the current CHE membership leaflet with photo of Nettie Pollard & Peter Tatchell from 2011?

“Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views.”

Pensioner backed Paedophile Information Exchange and may hold key to links with left wing groups

Nettie Pollard was a key figure in the London left – a Sunday People investigation reveals her to be a chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands

Even those who have lived beside her for years have little idea about her life – none of her neighbours has ever been invited inside the home she has lived in alone for almost 30 years.

But 69-year-old Nettie Pollard may hold the key to how the Paedophile Information Exchange infiltrated left wing groups in the 1970s.

She was a key figure in the London left, working for the National Council for Civil Liberties for two decades.

But a Sunday People investigation reveals Pollard to be chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands.

Our investigation found that throughout her career Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views. She also:

  • Supported PIE’s call to scrap the age of consent.
  • Argued against the introduction of a bill to protect children.
  • Sat on committees with known ­paedophiles and PIE members.
  • Wrote a twisted essay defending sex between adults and children.

It emerged MP Harriet Harman, ­husband Jack Dromey and former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt had been involved with the NCCL when PIE was affiliated to it.

Mrs Harman has subsequently moved to distance herself from Pollard and paedophiles, with a spokesman stating they “did not influence any of the work she did there”.

Image result for harriet harman pie

However one source involved with the London left in the 70s claims – ­embarrassingly for Mrs Harman – that she and Pollard did work together on occasions within the NCCL .

The source said: “Nettie was a big presence in the movement back in the 1970s and couldn’t be ignored by anyone wanting to get on in the NCCL.”

Our investigation first places Pollard in 1975 working as the Gay and Lesbian Officer for the NCCL.

And that brought her into close ­contact with the infamous PIE – the child sex group which campaigned to have the age of consent lowered or scrapped.

As well as her role at the NCCL, Pollard was and remains a significant member of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality – a group that defended PIE’s rights at their 1983 conference.

But even after PIE was disbanded in 1984, Pollard made no secret of her ­sympathy for the organisation’s aims.

In 1993 she contributed a ­defence of the ­sexualisation of youngsters to a book called Bad Girls and Dirty Pictures.

Entitled The Small Matter of Children, Pollard’s essay draws on work by known paedophiles such as former PIE vice-chair Warren Middleton to build its case.

Pollard argues child sex should be legal if the act is “consensual”.

It also uses language like “willing partners” to describe sex between adults and children.

But by far the most disturbing section is Pollard’s attempt to justify the sexualisation of children.

She writes: “Far from being ‘innocent’ and becoming sexual at puberty, as was once the common belief, it is now indisputable that everyone is sexual, even before birth.”

The research cited was also used in PIE’s bid to reduce the age of consent to just four.

Pollard continued to work for the NCCL until her mysterious ­departure from the group in 1997.

She was made redundant but reports from Feminists Against Censorship implies murkier reasons ­behind her exit.

A ­newsletter from the time reads: “Within the last several months, two of NCCL’s employees have remarked that the organisation’s longest-serving staff member, Nettie Pollard, was the last civil libertarian left on the payroll.”

Challenging the cost-cutting explanation given it added: “Since she is one of the few indispensable staff members, and the most ­expensive to make redundant, we suspect economy is not the reason.”

Pollard, whose Facebook page currently shows her support for causes including an anti-drones campaign and attacks on the “Big Brother” state, also showcases her taste in music with a link to indie rock band The Donutsh – described by one of their following as sounding “like Johnny Cash biting off Johnny Rotten’s head”.

She refused to answer the door to us when we visited her home.

Feb 2014: Convicted paedophile, Tom O’Carroll told The Guardian he remained a member of the NCCL’s gay rights committee for several years after Harman claimed his organisation was marginalised. NCCL archives in London have also shown how O’Carroll, a former chairman of PIE, asked Nettie Pollard, a staff member at the organisation, about the possibility of amendments to the 1978 child protection bill.

Home needed for Lambeth and Thatcher papers

Posted on October 10, 2013 by jscull03

Lambeth and Mrs. Thatcher: Research documentation available

In 1986, 32 Lambeth councillors were disqualified from political office and fined nearly a quarter of a million pounds for delaying levying the rate. Some have gone to high office; one Sir Stephen Bubb was recently knighted by David Cameron. Joan Walley has been the MP for Stoke since 1987. A number have since died.

The rate capping campaign involved powerful labour councils up and down the country and figures that are today influential in national politics. David Blunkett and Margaret Hodge were closely involved as were the high profile Ken Livingstone and Ted Knight.

Brussels whistleblower quits in despair

27 August, 2002

A European official whose whistle-blowing revelations sparked the resignation of the entire European Commision has quit, after declaring that nothing has changed.

In 1999, he went public with details of corruption, cronyism and abuse of power in the commission.

The entire team of 20 commissioners, headed by then president Jacques Santer, resigned in a symbolic gesture to demonstrate their commitment to cleaning up the commission’s act.

But Mr Van Buitenen says that, three years on, it is business as usual.

“Despite everything, I can’t see any change in Brussels,” he said.

The clean-up operation has been headed by the UK’s Neil Kinnock, administration commissioner and a commission vice-president.

But as long ago as March 2000 Mr Van Buitenen cast doubt on whether the reforms would achieve anything.

“(Mr Kinnock) has drawn up a nice reform plan which looks right but he does not tackle the people who committed the irregularities,” he said at the time. “They have been confirmed in their jobs or even promoted.”

Confidence in the commission’s inner purging was knocked again earlier this year, when another whistleblower, chief accountant Marta Andreasen, was forced from her job.

Jo Cox – husband Brendan Cox – He shared a photo of his wife while she was still in the hospital fighting for her life.

Brendan Cox had to resign from the charity Save the Children fund in November 2015 over allegations of behaving inappropriately with female members of staff.

Chief strategist Brendan Cox  and Chief executive Justin Forsyth (both men were senior advisers to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown)  both resign.

In the same year, Save the Children USA presented Tony Blair with a ‘global legacy award’.

More than 500 staff members signed an internal letter condemning the award, calling it “morally reprehensible”.

Asked if Sir Alan Parker had recommended Blair for the award, Warburton said: “It is simply wrong to suggest it was made at Sir Alan Parker’s suggestion. He was not part of the process.”

Sir Alan Parker, who is the chairman of both Save the Children UK and the PR company Brunswick, is an associate of Blair’s, and helped to hire Forsyth as the charity’s chief executive in 2010.

Blair attended Sir Parker’s wedding in 2008.

‘He grabbed her hips, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’: Murdered MP Jo Cox’s husband was reported to police over sex assault claim in Harvard bar – nine months before his wife’s death

  • Woman reported Brendan Cox to U.S. police, claiming he assaulted her late at night at Harvard University in 2015; Mr Cox strongly denies the allegation
  • In report filed by police, she claims Mr Cox ‘grabbed [the woman] by the hips several times… forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’; ‘touched her inappropriately’ in a restaurant
  • Complaint came soon after Mr Cox quit as senior exec with Save The Children in 2015 following separate claims of inappropriate behaviour towards staff

A new charity sex scandal erupted last night after it emerged that the husband of murdered Labour MP Jo Cox was once accused of groping a senior US government official.

The woman reported Brendan Cox to American police, claiming he assaulted her late at night at Harvard University – although Mr Cox strongly denies the allegation.

Her complaint came soon after Mr Cox quit as a senior executive with the Save The Children in 2015 following separate claims of inappropriate behaviour towards staff

According to a report filed by police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the woman claims Mr Cox:

  • ‘Grabbed [the woman] by the hips several times, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’;
  • ‘Touched her inappropriately’ in a restaurant and tried to ‘push’ her into drinking more alcohol;
  • ‘Pulled her towards him and touched her stomach’ despite her telling him to stop;
  • Texted her later, asking: ‘Are you touching yourself?’

The woman was so upset she ‘couldn’t even look at Mr Cox’. She also said she ‘feared repercussions’ from him. In the police report, seen by The Mail on Sunday, the ‘incident type/offence’ is described as ‘indecent assault and battery on person 14 or over.’

Mr Cox’s lawyers last night said he denies the ‘spurious allegations’ and says no sexual assault took place.

This newspaper knows the identity of the woman, who is in her thirties, and has decided to protect her anonymity.

The disclosure of the report’s existence comes as Oxfam is reeling from claims it failed to warn other agencies about staff who quietly resigned after being caught using prostitutes in Haiti.

The report – filed by police in Cambridge, Massachusetts – says that on Thursday, October 29, she went to Felipe’s (above), a restaurant in Harvard Square with Mr Cox. ‘While there and on the walk back, Mr Cox touched her inappropriately… touched her “ass” , grabbed her by the hips several times, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’

Mr Cox married Jo in 2009 and, since her murder, a week before the EU referendum in 2016, he has focused on raising the couple’s two children and helping to run the Jo Cox Foundation, set up ‘to channel the energy and determination generated by Jo’s life into practical efforts to advance the causes she championed’.

The alleged US incident involving Mr Cox took place in October 2015 weeks after he left his post as senior Save The Children strategist in London following claims of inappropriate behaviour towards female members of staff. Mr Cox denied any wrongdoing there.

Mr Cox attended a two-week course at Harvard’s prestigious John F Kennedy School of Government run by the World Economic Forum, which also organises the annual economic summit in Davos, Switzerland.

Mr Cox, who worked in Downing Street for Prime Minister Gordon Brown in 2010, was named a Young Global Leader by the forum in 2012. He attended the 2015 Harvard course along with nearly 100 international rising-star charity officials and civil servants.

Past Young Global Leaders include David Cameron and Google co-founder Larry Page.

The woman – who was studying at Harvard at the time – complained to police in Cambridge, where the university is located, on November 6.

Under the heading ‘offender,’ the report, dated six days later, says the ‘suspect’ is ‘Brendan Cox, white, about 38’ and that the ‘female victim’, who is named in the file, described her alleged assailant as having brown hair and being 5ft 10in to 6ft tall.’

The report says that on Thursday, October 29, she went to Felipe’s, a restaurant in Harvard Square with Mr Cox.

‘While there and on the walk back, Mr Cox touched her inappropriately… touched her “ass” , grabbed her by the hips several times, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way.’

He ‘also pulled her towards him and touched her stomach’ even though she had ‘made it clear’ she wanted no sexual contact. ‘She received a text later in the evening from Cox that read “are you touching yourself?”’

The report records the woman’s belief that Mr Cox was trying to ply her with drink. She had had ‘three glasses of wine and one tequila shot’ during the evening and believed ‘Cox was pushing her to consume alcohol’ despite her telling him she did not normally do so.

‘Cox kept saying “Let’s go to your place” or “Let’s go to my place”’ after she had told him she wanted no physical contact.

‘Unwanted touching’ took place between midnight and 1.30am’ and all of it made the woman ‘feel extremely uncomfortable’.

She is also said to have mentioned the incident to Harvard.

It is understood police did not investigate the matter at the request of the woman. The report states she ‘only wanted the incident documented at this time’ and had been ‘reluctant’ to complain to police because she ‘feared repercussions from the suspect.’

Cambridge Police last night confirmed the existence of the case file to The Mail on Sunday.

Mr Cox declined to comment last night, but his lawyers said he denies the ‘spurious allegations’ and says no sexual assault took place.

They added that the fact Mr Cox has never been contacted or questioned by the Massachusetts police was further evidence that the claims were untrue. They also questioned the motivation of the complainant.

That Cox was the subject of a complaint so close to him leaving Save The Children will put renewed focus on British charities as both the Government and the Charity Commission last night announced probes into whether Oxfam covered up the scandal of its workers having orgies with prostitutes after the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.

Chief executive Mark Goldring told ITV News that it was ‘highly likely’ public donations to Oxfam would have fallen if the charity had revealed the scandal. But he denied any cover-up.

The charity says it disclosed sexual misconduct to the regulator.

Last night International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt hinted the Government could pull Oxfam’s funding, which amounted to £31.7 million last year.

She said: ‘We will not work with any organisation that does not live up to the high standards on safeguarding and protection that we require.’

Oxfam failed to act on reports its workers were raping girls as young as 12, damning report concludes

Senior staff failed to alert law enforcement to allegations aid workers were having sex with minors, a damning Charity Commission report concludes

11 June 2019

Oxfam failed to act on reports children were being sexually abused by its workers in Haiti in 2011, according to a major Charity Commission inquiry which concluded the allegations were “not taken seriously enough”.

A report by the Charity Commission into Oxfam GB, undertaken in response to revelations last year of sexual exploitation by its aid workers, concludes the safety of potential victims took “second place”.

It discloses a series of emails received by the NGO in 2011 alleging some workers were having sex with women and girls, including minors, in refugee camps after their homes were destroyed by the earthquake which devastated the country in 2010.

Oxfam suspected the emails were not genuine, and did not raise them with local police.

In one case, two emails dated 18 July 2011 and 20 August 2011 – both said to be from a 13-year-old Haitian girl – alleged she and a 12-year-old friend had suffered physical abuse and other misconduct at the hands of Oxfam staff.

The emails stated the girls had been engaging in prostitution and the author had been “beaten and used by two men who I know work for you”. It continued: “They also have a boss who works for you and I have not met, but my young friend. She is 12. Has had sex with him.”

The inquiry established that the emails were not raised with any law enforcement at the time and former trustees said they were not made aware of them.

Taking into consideration the “seriousness of the allegations” made in the emails, as well as the “clear risks to the safety and security of those minors” if they were true, the Commission said Oxfam “should have tried harder” and taken more steps at the time to identify the source of the concerns and follow up the allegations.

“Oxfam GB should not have taken the risk with the safety of minors. It should have reported the possibility of two girls being at risk to the local law enforcement authorities … The risk to and impact on the victims appeared to take second place and was not taken seriously enough,” it said.

The Charity Commission said that given the period of time that had passed, it would not be possible to conclude with sufficient certainty whether minors were involved or at risk.

But it raised concerns that Oxfam’s handling of these matters was influenced by a “desire to protection the charity’s reputation and to protect donor and stakeholder relationships”.

Oxfam’s chief executive in 2011 has accepted publicly that further steps could have been taken to determine whether minors were involved in the original allegations.

The findings come nearly a year after it emerged that senior aid workers working for Oxfam had used prostitutes in Haiti. Four members of staff were subsequently dismissed and three, including the country director, resigned.

The report also found that incidents in Haiti in 2011 were “not one-off” and examples of poor conduct by staff and behavioural issues dated back to June 2010.

It said failure to consistently hold people to account for poor behaviour and to ensure robust and consistent action was taken in practice had resulted in a “culture of tolerance of poor behaviour” which “likely resulted in putting victims off speaking up”.

“The risk to, and impact on, the victims appeared to take second place at times and was not taken seriously enough; victims, whistleblowers and those staff who tried to raised concerns were let down,” stated the report.

While the inquiry notes that the NGO has since made “significant progress” in improving weaknesses in its safeguarding, it said “significant further cultural and systematic change” was required to address the issues fully.

In light of the findings, the Charity Commission has exercised its legal powers and issued an official warning to Oxfam on the grounds that there has been some areas of mismanagement in relation to Haiti and its safeguarding governance prior to 2018.

Chair of trustees Caroline Thomson said Oxfam was “deeply sorry for its failure to prevent sexual abuse by its former staff in Haiti” and that it accepted it should have improved its safeguarding “further and faster”.

“What happened in Haiti was shameful and we are deeply sorry. It was a terrible abuse of power, and an affront to the values that Oxfam holds dear,” she said.

“The Commission’s findings are very uncomfortable for Oxfam GB but we accept them. We now know that the 2011 investigation and reporting of what happened in Haiti was flawed; more should have been done to establish whether minors were involved.”

The international development secretary, Rory Stewart, said: “The revelations of last year were horrifying and shone a light on fundamental problems. The Department for International Development [DFID] agrees that we must always put people first.

“DFID has driven reform and our priority remains delivering for the world’s poorest and most vulnerable, while keeping people safe from harm.

“Oxfam is an important British institution that saves lives in some of the world’s toughest places. This is a long-term process, in which there are no easy answers or room for complacency. We will be working closely with both Oxfam and the Charity Commission in the coming weeks.”

Save the Children inquiry over response to harassment claims

Brendan Cox resigned from his role at Save the Children after complaints

Brendan Cox resigned from his role at Save the Children after complaints

Save the Children is to be investigated by the regulator over how it handled serious allegations of misconduct and harassment against senior staff.

The inquiry will focus on how the charity dealt with complaints that Justin Forsyth and Brendan Cox, its former chief executive and policy director respectively, sexually harassed young women employees.

The Charity Commission opened a statutory inquiry after receiving “new information”, it said last night. It is concerned that the charity may have withheld the full extent of allegations from the regulator in 2015 when the alleged incidents were first reported. It is a blow to Save the Children, which has commissioned its own review of its working culture. Kevin Watkins, the chief executive who was a trustee at the time of…

New charity scandal as Save The Children executive quits after women’s complaints of ‘inappropriate behaviour’

Chief strategist Brendan Cox denied the allegations but quit in September

Mr Cox, Save The Children’s director of policy and advocacy,

The women threatened to ‘make a huge fuss’ when the charity did nothing

Another children’s charity was rocked last night after a senior executive at Save The Children resigned over allegations of ‘inappropriate behaviour’.

Chief strategist Brendan Cox denied allegations against him but left in September. The charity’s £160,000-a-year chief executive Justin Forsyth has also resigned for unconnected reasons.

Both were senior advisers to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Mr Cox’s wife, Jo, is a Labour MP and former aide to Mr Brown’s wife Sarah. Mrs Cox also runs the Labour Women’s Network where she is ‘equalities and discrimination’ adviser.

An insider said: ‘Some people were unhappy there was no proper internal investigation into the allegations. Brendan packed his bags and left suddenly.’

One individual who has worked with Save The Children said: ‘Several of the women complained about inappropriate behaviour by Brendan. When the charity did nothing about it they threatened to make a huge fuss. Shortly afterwards it was announced that Brendan was leaving. Then we heard Justin was going as well.’

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3298572/New-charity-scandal-Save-Children-executive-quits-women-s-complaints-inappropriate-behaviour.html

Cox, an international campaigner and activist, began his career in the aftermath of the civil war in the former Yugoslavia working with children affected by the conflict and has a long standing interest in refugee policy. In 2011 he was appointed a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum and in 2012 was selected as one of the top forty young leaders in international development by Devex.

Brendan Cox runs his own blog. He recently played a major role in civil society campaigning for the Sustainable Development Goals as the Director of the Policy and Advocacy at Save the Children. Prior to this he ran a global research project and published a series of reports analyzing global development campaigns and looking at future trends and opportunities.

Mr. Cox previously served as Special Advisor for Africa and International Development to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Before that, he was Chief Executive of Crisis Action.

…husband Brendan Cox is tweeting out a Go Fund Me link to his wife’s ‘favourite causes’ and one of those is the White Helmets.

The White Helmets is not a charity, and neither are they ‘the good guys’ despite their white helmets. The White Helmets is the military propaganda arm of the Allies attempt at regime change by destabilising Syria – and this is exactly what is causing the refugee component of Europe’s migrant crisis in the first place.

The White Helmets also does not need our hard-earned cash. It is well-funded by George Soros’s organisations, the UK, the US and the Syrian Opposition Party in its work, which is mainly with the rebel group Jabat al-Nusra, the infamous al-Qaeda affiliate.

The White Helmets are represented PR-wise by Purpose whose co-founder Jeremy Heimans also helped to create Avaaz. Avaaz is a global “pro-democracy” group which has been accused of furthering the US/EU agenda in the Middle East and elsewhere. It is also Avaaz that it encouraging, on social media, a sort of hands-around-the-world show of sympathy for Jo Cox today.

Revealed: Keith Vaz’s job with Iraqi tycoon Auchi

3 Feb 2001

Foreign Office Minister Keith Vaz accepted a job with a company owned by an Iraqi-born tycoon who is wanted for questioning over a massive European corruption scandal, The Observer can reveal.

Vaz, who is facing calls for his resignation over his business relationships, accepted a directorship of the company owned by Nadhmi Auchi, a British multi-millionaire facing inquiries over his role in an oil deal allegedly involving £40m of kickbacks.

Tom Young: Without going into too much detail at the moment, it’s worth noting that Norman Lamont has extensive business ties with Le Cercle Member Nadhmi Auchi[15], most notably:

General Mediterranean Holding:

Lamont was not only close to Auchi through Le Cercle. After leaving government he joined the five-member financial board of Auchi’s General Mediterranean Holding, a Luxembourg-based holding company for more than 120 companies. Anno 2011 Lamont still sits on the board. Jacques Santer, a former finance and prime minister of Luxembourg who is known to be sympathetic to Opus Dei sits on the six-member main board of General Mediterranean Holding.

In 2009 the Belgian Marc Verwilghen joined the main board, which is rather puzzling. Verwilghen headed the independent Dutroux Commission and was among the few officials that were open to the information in X-Dossiers which implicated Belgium’s elite in various child abuse rings.’

Now by some accounts Leon Brittan was involved in abuse and abuse images during his time in Brussels, which may be the reason I attracted Nick Clegg‘s attention… it could also be regarding the Privy Council meeting last year where key Le Cercle member Julian Lewis was sworn into the Privy Council:

https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10156504974750032&id=697345031&pnref=story

It’s also well worth noting that along with the head of the (very iffy) inquiry into the Dutroux affair in Belgium, General Mediterranean Holdings board of directors has also included Keith Vaz [33], who chairs the Home Affairs Select Committee and has been pivotal in determining the suitability of candidates as chair of the UK independent inquiry into Child Abuse.
Of course, questions still remain about Vaz’s time on the councils of Richmond and Islington whilst abuse was occurring, as well as his prior support of Greville Janner.

I’ll expose further ties soon, along with showing how this all ties into the very same networks involved in the Contra Affair which led to N.W.A Music getting into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the careers of Dr Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, JAY Z, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar and many others…

We’ll also work towards taking a look at Aegis Defence Services, who along with ties to Le Cercle, appear to have several links to a great deal of suspicious activity… on that note, this previous post regarding Aegis’ Chairman Nicholas Soames, Equerry to Prince Charles during the period he, Lord Mountbatten and Jimmy Savile were rubbing shoulders.”

Meanwhile, in New Zealand, there have been such newspaper headlines as, “‘Uncle Dickie’ the Sex Pervert” (N.Z. Truth, Sept.  8, 1987), since Mountbatten’s former chauffeur, Norman Nield, started revealing details of the late Lord Mountbatten’s alleged sexual exploitation of boys.

Back to Clement Freud, the link to Belgium provides another possible lead in the Madeline McCann case, as detailed here:

https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10155800111075032&id=697345031

Clement Freud shared an office with Cyril Smith [1]

Cyril Smith and his friends Jimmy Savile and Leon Brittan associated with Keith Harding, a key member of the Paedophile Information Exchange. [6] Jeremy Thorpe, a close associate of Clement Freud was also involved.

Keith Harding was based in Islington, an area with deep ties to Organized Child Abuse, with extensive links to abuse in both Lambeth and Jersey.[7][8]

Keith Harding went on to become Worshipful Master of the Mercurius Masonic Lodge closely associated with GCHQ[9]

Clement Freud’s Son, Matthew Freud[10] is involved with the ‘Notting Hill Set'[11], many members of which including David Cameron are in the close circle of former Home Secretary Michael Howard

In the mid 1990s, whilst Michael Howard was Home Secretary, the Home Office received a dossier detailing abuse by Greville Janner, on which no substantial action was taken. This was at least the 4th warning they had received. [12]

It’s worth noting that around this time that current Prime Minister David Cameron and Patrick Rock, who has recently been found guilty of making indecent images of children[13], were working together as Political Advisors to Michael Howard[14].

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.[15]

(for more on Aitken and his ties to the current speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, see here: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10155825692365032&id=697345031)

Another previous head of Le Cercle, and mentor of Jonathan Aitken, Julian Amery [16]was deeply involved in the ‘Bank of Credit and Commerce International’ an extremely shadowy bank which was set up with participation by George H. W. Bush and members of the Safari Club.

The BCCI was heavily involved with US and Saudi funds during Operation Cyclone and the early stages of Al-Qaeda… Osama Bin Laden had extensive investments in the BCCI.[17]

When the terms for the Al-Yamamah arms deal [18] were set up, Michael Howard was Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Trade and Industry with responsibility for regulating the financial dealings of the City of London. This junior post became very important, as he oversaw the BigBang introduction of new technology in 1986. [19]….

Ties Between the Bush Family and Osama bin Laden

06 April 2007

Questions Linger About Bushes and BCCI

The link between Hussein and Bin Laden was their banker, BCCI. But the link went beyond the dictator and the jihadist – it passed through Saudi Arabia and stretched all the way to George W. Bush and his father.

BCCI was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, a dirty offshore bank that then-president Ronald Reagan’s Central Intelligence Agency used to run guns to Hussein, finance Osama bin Laden, move money in the illegal Iran-Contra operation and carry out other “agency” black ops. The Bushes also benefited privately; one of the bank’s largest Saudi investors helped bail out George W. Bush’s troubled oil investments.

BCCI was founded in 1972 by a Pakistani banker, Agha Hasan Abedi, with the support of Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi and head of the United Arab Emirates. Its corporate strategy was money laundering. It became the banker for drug and arms traffickers, corrupt officials, financial fraudsters, dictators and terrorists.

The CIA used BCCI Islamabad and other branches in Pakistan to funnel some of the two billion dollars that Washington sent to Osama bin Laden’s Mujahadeen to help fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. It moved the cash the Pakistani military and government officials skimmed from U.S. aid to the Mujahadeen. It also moved money as required by the Saudi intelligence services.

Jonathan Aitken

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.

link

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.

Jo Cox Charity work

90013609_jo6

Jo Cox worked for several charities before entering parliament at the general election last year, including Oxfam, which employed her for about eight years, Save the Children, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the NSPCC.

Immediately before she was elected to Parliament in May 2015, Jo Cox worked at the Freedom Fund, an anti-slavery organization, and at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, according to a biography on her website.

http://www.theatlantic.com/news/archive/2016/06/who-was-jo-cox/487436/



In 2001, she started working for Oxfam and quickly became head of the charity’s Brussels office, where Mr Cairns said she dealt with “one humanitarian crisis after another”.

Talking to the Huffington Post last year, Mrs Cox herself said: “I would jump on a plane and be in Kabul one week and then Darfur the next.”

She joined Oxfam GB as head of advocacy in 2005 and was a “passionate advocate on humanitarian issues, including the conflicts in Darfur and the Democratic Republic of Congo”, the charity said.

This led to her being appointed in 2007 as head of humanitarian campaigns for Oxfam International in New York, a position she held for two years.

Cox worked for Oxfam GB and Oxfam International between 2001 and 2009 in a variety of roles, including as head of its Brussels office, where she led the charity’s campaign for trade reform.

In 2007, she moved to Oxfam’s New York office and became head of humanitarian campaigning around the world until 2009.

(She campaigned for Obama’s 2008 presidential candidacy)

Mr Cairns said she was instrumental in the publication of a “landmark book” called For a Safer Tomorrow, which analysed how the world’s humanitarian policies were changing.

Mrs Cox left Oxfam in 2009 and became the director of ex-Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah’s Maternal Mortality Campaign, which campaigns for women’s right in the developing world.

And even when she moved into politics, she continued to work as a strategy consultant for Save the Children and then the NSPCC.

Peter Wanless, chief executive of the NSPCC, for which Cox worked as a consultant in 2012, said on Twitter: “Speaking on behalf of all at @NSPCC when I express my shock and sadness at the death of Jo Cox MP, a valued former work colleague.”

Baroness Glenys Kinnock urges North-East woman to vote to remain in Europe

1 Jun 2016

Greediest snouts in the EU trough: Not sure how to vote? Read about the stinking wealth and hypocrisy of those Brussels fat cats the Kinnocks and it may help you decide

  • This week Neil Kinnock told a rally that Brexit promises ‘didn’t add up’
  • His son Stephen and wife Glenys also campaigning for Remain
  • But 41 years ago Kinnock was leading figure in campaign for Britain to leave the European Economic Community
  • Family members have all benefited from the EU gravy train 

Kinnock’s second in a row — he and his family have existed in a lucrative public sector bubble, notably in relation to the European Union; highly paid, publicly funded jobs followed by mega-pensions for the parents, and what amounted to sinecures for their children (their daughter Rachel has also enjoyed the fruits of the public purse).

The figures are astonishing. Between them Lord and Lady Kinnock are entitled to draw six publicly funded pensions, with a total income estimated to be worth around £250,000 a year. Some of that comes directly from the British taxpayer. But the key to the riches was their Damascene conversion from Europhobes to Eurocrats. Former school teacher Glenys Kinnock — that original classroom profession provides one of her pensions — was the first to reach Brussels. In 1994 she was elected to the European Parliament as the MEP for South Wales East. It was the safest European seat in the country.

Rachel Kinnock, now 44, was taken on as a member of staff by her mother while she was an MEP in Brussels. The post was funded by Welsh taxpayers.

Rachel Kinnock became ‘events manager’ for Ed Miliband

When Lady Kinnock returned to London in 2009, a position was found for Rachel on Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s political staff. When he lost the 2010 election and stepped down from politics, Rachel Kinnock became ‘events manager’ for Ed Miliband.

We all know how his campaign to become PM ended, though Rachel is still being tipped to be yet another Kinnock Labour MP.

Stephen Kinnock: As a Cambridge modern languages graduate he attended the College of Europe in Bruges, described as atraining ground for the Eurocratic elite’. It was there that he met academic’s daughter Helle Thorning-Schmidt

As for Stephen Kinnock’s wife, she is now tipped to become an EU Commissioner. So whatever the result on June 23, another generation of Kinnocks could be sitting in the first-class compartment of the EU gravy train.

They may be aggressively campaigning for Remain, but given the extraordinary largesse they’ve received from taxpayers — especially via Brussels — could the Kinnocks be the family that persuades Britain to vote Leave?
