Barrister misled court to block abuse trial, claims Tory MP

Cheryl Gillan alleges QC failed to disclose evidence to judge, blocking prosecution

22 May 2019

A former cabinet minister has accused a barrister of deceiving a court to successfully block the prosecution of a headmaster who had been accused of sexually abusing five boys.

In a debate in the House of Commons on Wednesday, the Conservative MP Cheryl Gillan alleged that the QC, Andrew Bright, “gravely” misled the court while he was representing the headmaster.

Gillan alleged that the QC failed to disclose evidence to a judge who ruled that the headmaster, Peter Wright, would not be prosecuted for the offences.

The MP alleged that had this “hidden” evidence been disclosed, it would probably have undermined the attempt to have prosecution blocked.

A decade later, Wright was convicted in a related case of abusing five other boys while he was headmaster of Caldicott prep school in Buckinghamshire and jailed for eight years.

The allegation against Bright was made by Gillan in parliament, which means she is protected from being sued.

Bright now sits as a judge at St Albans. A spokesman for the judiciary said: “The Solicitors Regulation Authority conducted an independent investigation and rejected the complaint that the court had been misled. It maintained that conclusion after a review.”

Gillan, the MP for Chesham and Amersham, also alleged that a series of authorities – including the attorney general’s department, the crown prosecution service and legal regulators – did nothing to correct the failure to disclose the evidence.

The MP, who was secretary of state for Wales in David Cameron’s government, highlighted the case of Wright, who was the headmaster of Caldicott between 1968 and 1993.

He and three other members of staff have been convicted of sexually abusing boys at the fee-paying school in the 1960s and 1970s.

In 2003, prosecutors prepared to bring Wright to court on 16 charges of sexually abusing boys at the school between 1964 and 1970 while he was a teacher and then headmaster.

Before the case came to trial, lawyers for Wright, then 73, submitted an application to block the prosecution on the grounds that he would not get a fair trial as the allegations were three decades old. In legal terms, this is called a stay of indictment.

On Wednesday, Gillan alleged that Wright’s lawyers misled the judge at Aylesbury crown court, Roger Connor, by failing to disclose relevant information.

“The information could have meant that Connor could probably have considered the stay of indictment not at all justified,” she claimed.

She alleged that Wright’s lawyers had corresponded with the school about obtaining lists of former boys who could be called as witnesses for him. She alleged that his lawyers had “acted improperly” when they told the judge that these lists could not be obtained from the school.

Caldicott School: Child Sexual Abusers and Timeline

Pupils at Caldicott School, Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire suffered child sexual abuse over a number of years and a number of abusers. It is now a charity [4], as are many “public” schools.  It is not known what the status of the school was when child sexual abuse offences were being committed by its teachers and covered up by the school.

Known abusers so far were

  • Peter Roland Wright, former Caldicott pupil [23], was finally charged and convicted in 2014. Previous attempts to indict him failed in 2003 due a Judge deciding it was too great a the length of time since offences and the defendants health. A stay on that indictment meant he only faced charges from new victims who came forward. He was sentenced to 8 years. He was tried with offences from 1964-1970 [3]. Victims were mainly 11-13 years old [3]. He was at the school from 1952 -1993, the last 25 years as Headmaster.

  • Hugh Edward Henry admitted 13 counts [3] including two counts of incitement to gross indecency and eleven counts of indecent assault [9][12]. He is thought to have been at Caldicott between 1958-1963  and offences on one boy were from 1962-63 [12]. He committed some of his offences at his bedsit and on a school skiing trip with Peter Wright. He was also charged with offences at Gayhurst School, Gerrards Cross. Little else is known of his offending, where else he worked and any other possible offences. He killed himself by walking in front of a train before sentencing. [12]

 

  • John Addrison, another former Caldicott pupil [34], was charged in 2012 with offences at Caldicott between Jan and July 1978 and at Moor Park School, Ludlow between 1985 and 1988 and sentenced to roughly 5 years.  It is also not clear what he did straight after leaving Caldicott; when he started at Moor Park school or what he did after being dismissed from Moor Park School in 1988, although he was teaching in 2010 [2]. It is not known if he committed further offences after 1988. Also see Government UK National College for Teaching and Leadership  Mr John Addrison: Professional Conduct Panel outcome Panel decision and reasons on behalf of the Secretary of State for Education [2] pdf download, and reproduced in Appendix 1 below

 

  • Martin Carson, a science teacher, was found to be committing child sexual abuse offences at Caldicot in 1973, but it was covered up by the school and he received just a 5 year ban from teaching [6]. Carson was charged with two charges of buggery, eight charges of indecent assault and one count of possessing indecent photographs. He pleaded guilty in 2003 and was sentenced to just 2 years in prison. Details are lacking of offences, when employed at Caldicott. Carson resumed his career in 1980 at prep school in Eastbourne where he was appointed Head of Pastoral care [38] and he taught at Harrodian School, Bath, at the time of the video Chosen in 2008. It is not known if the committed further offences at these school or elsewhere [6]

 

  • David Keith Geddes, another teacher, was acquitted of offences between 1975-77 after a retrial [14][28]

 

  • George Hill Peter Wrights deputy in the 1970s killed himself which probably saved him from facing charges [33]

Quote:
Caldicott Preparatory School became a charitable trust in 1968 under the Headmaster at the time Peter Wright.

Today there are around 250 boys. The present headmaster, Simon Doggart, was appointed in 1998; he came from Eton College where he taught history and was master-in-charge of cricket. He is a member of IAPS and the school’s governors include past parents, old boys and headmasters of public schools.
According to the school’s website, many pupils at Caldicott subsequently “win” places at major independent schools, such as Eton College, Harrow School, Winchester College, Marlborough College, Wellington College, Haileybury College and Radley College.

On 30 September 2008 the school was the subject of a feature documentary, Chosen, transmitted on More4 as part of the “True Stories” strand, about the sexual abuse that went on at the school during the late 1960s and early 1970s.[2] The headmaster Peter Wright was active in this, as well as a number of other teachers, targeting boys good at sports and, to a lesser extent, in the choir. In The Guardian published on the same day, a former parent alleged that Lord Justice Scott Baker former Chairman of the Board of Governors, and Simon Doggart the current headmaster, mishandled a case of alleged sexual abuse of their son by a teacher in the early 2000s.[3]
Martin Carson was dismissed for sexual abuse of a pupil in 1972, and went on to teach at the Harrodian School. He was subsequently prosecuted and found guilty of indecent assault and possessing indecent images of children in 2003.[4]link

 Caldicott Summer Fete

The Headmaster, Simon Doggart finished off the fete with a very popular raffle.

​Thank you to everyone for coming along and supporting the school fete. It was a great success and all the money raised by the boys will go to The Prince’s Trust.

Caldicott…under the current headmaster Simon Doggart, another incident of alleged child sexual abuse was reported in the late 2000s. The headmaster and the chairman of the board of governors, Lord Justice Scott Baker, suspended the teacher (who did not return) but failed to report the incident to the police or social services, contrary to the school’s written policy on this matter.

Abuser John Smyth QC and Simon Hoggart

Another victim, Andy Morse, described how, to continue the beatings, Mr Smyth recruited boys from among victims to take over while he watched. These were often more brutal than Smyth’s attacks. Mr Morse named Simon Doggart as one of these substitutes. “The strokes he gave me were probably the equivalent of three of John’s. Simon was completely brainwashed. I think even then I sensed that it wasn’t my friend beating me: it was actually John Smyth beating me, using my friend to carry out his abuse.”

Another victim spoke of Doggart’s strokes as “far, far worse than Smyth. There was no discussion, no emotion, I recall, just a fit sportsman using all his force.”

The alleged beatings took place in a shed, equipped, Mr Morse said, with dressings to be applied after the beatings. “John Smyth had every single bandage, dressing, iodine, anything that had been invented, but even though he had all that equipment and, I would call it, paraphernalia, we were bleeding everywhere. Even with these dressings on, wearing these adult nappies, we bled all over his house. . .”.

The beatings stopped in 1982, when Mr Morse tried to take his own life.

One survivor who has come forward is the Bishop of Guildford, the Rt Revd Andrew Watson (News, 10 February), who described the beatings as “abuse perpetrated by a misguided, manipulative, and dangerous man.

 Review to begin into alleged sexual abuse by late Bishop of Chester Victor Whitsey

22 May 2019

AN inquiry into reports of sexual abuse by a former Chester bishop will begin imminently – two years after it was first promised.

The Church of England has today (Wednesday, May 22) disclosed details of a ‘learning lessons case review’ into the actions of the late Hubert Victor Whitsey.

Cheshire Police began an investigation in 2016 after a church safeguarding adviser in Chester passed on details of alleged abuse by Whitsey.

A year later detectives revealed that they would have spoken to him in relation to 10 of the witness allegations if he had been alive.

Whitsey died in 1987.

The review will be carried out by His Honour Judge David Pearl, an independent reviewer commissioned by the Church’s National Safeguarding Team (NST).

Documents outlining its ‘terms of reference’, shared with this newspaper by the Diocese of Chester, reveal it intended to cover a timespan of alleged abuse from 1974 to 1982.

However, specialist abuse lawyer Richard Scorer, who represents nine of Whitsey’s alleged victims, said the abuse began earlier and he had requested to have the timeframe extended to 1966.

He told The Standard today: “I welcome the fact that the review has been announced. It is important that the reviewer leaves no stone unturned in investigating what was known within the church, by whom and at what point in time.

“These issues have to flushed out and the reviewer needs to be determined and forceful in his pursuit of answers to these questions.”

Mr Scorer had previously been critical of the way the Church and the Diocese of Chester had handled the Whitsey case, alleging a cover-up had taken place.

His suspicions were reaffirmed earlier this year when it emerged the Diocese had missed two opportunities to report paedophile Warrington vicar Charles Gordon Dickenson who was jailed in March.

A separate NST review is expected to begin shortly to investigate these failings and to determine whether the current bishop of Chester, Dr Peter Forster, was aware of any cover-up.

Mr Scorer, who works for Slater & Gordon, said at the time: “The church cannot be relied on to police itself – we urgently need all these instances of possible cover-up to be investigated independently, and until that happens victims will have no confidence that the church is serious about rooting out abuse.”

A Church spokesman has since apologised for the delay in starting the review into the Whitsey case.

He said: “We apologise for the length of time this has taken to sort and for any distress this may have caused survivors.

“A separate ‘lessons learnt review’ will be carried out into the case of the Revd Dickenson.”

The terms of reference for the Whitsey review state that a total of 19 people have come forward with allegations of abuse by the late bishop.

Outlining its remit, the document states: “This review (“the Review”) will allow those individuals who have indicated that they have sustained harm at the hands of Hubert Victor Whitsey or another Church body or officer to describe their experiences.

“The Review will identity both good practice and failings in the Church of England’s handling of the allegations relating to Hubert Victor Whitsey, including its safeguarding practice, in order that the Church of England can take steps to enhance and improve its response to allegations of abuse and, thereby, ensure a safer environment for all.”

It will focus on two questions: what the Church of England knew about alleged abuse perpetrated by Whitsey and what the Church of England’s response was to those allegations.

The reviewer will investigate whether any further abuse could have been prevented and will pledge to be “transparent and open” about information collected, the document states.

The news comes as the Church faces continued scrutiny over its safeguarding processes in the wake of the Dickenson case – first reported by The Standard and sister paper the Warrington Guardian – and the BBC Panorama investigations team which broadcast a programme on church-related abuse last month.

Gazette was correct about ex-mayor’s pro-paedophile past, top lawyer concludes

07 November 2018

A top barrister has confirmed former Islington councillor Sandy Marks’ past links to a pro-paedophile campaign group.

An independent review by Sarah Morgan QC, published on Wednesday, vindicates the Gazette’s revelations about Sandy Marks’ past links to radical campaign group Fallen Angels – whose publication 18 months ago triggered the lawyer’s probe.

It also confirms Ms Marks and then-colleagues at Islington would have been aware of allegations about the abuse of children in the care system before the horrific scandal emerged in 1992.

But it stops short of suggesting an inquiry into the abuse be re-opened, and asserts that Ms Marks’ involvement with campaign group Fallen Angels had “no impact” on her later oversight of children’s services.

Ms Morgan’s 127-page paper comes at the end of a review spanning eight months and involving thousands of pages of documents, as well as interviews with victims and survivors, with Ms Marks herself, and with the Gazette staff who originally worked on the story in May 2017.

It will make disappointing reading for the Islington Survivors Network (ISN), which is led by social worker Dr Liz Davies – the original whistleblower into physical and sexual abuse taking place across Islington’s children’s homes in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

The group hoped it would recommend the 1995 White Report into the scandal be reopened, as they believe it failed to uncover evidence of organised abuse rather than simply the poor management and negligence it did find.

In the report, Ms Morgan says Ms Marks’ work as chair of the social services committee, which covered children’s services, was likely not affected by her past involvement with Fallen Angels, a radical pro-paedophile activist group.

But she admits it doesn’t “sit easily” that “someone could be associated with an organisation so malign and yet, in the years following that association, it had no detectable impact on her conduct of a role in a public office which included the oversight of the welfare of children in care”.

‘If Sandy Marks did hold those views, I was not aware of them’.

Social worker Dr Liz Davies, the original whistleblower on the scandal, tried to alert senior Islington officers and councillors – including then leader Mrs Hodge – to fears a paedophile sex ring was operating in the borough.

“Sandy Marks was at the centre of the council throughout this time,” said Dr Davies.

“This new information about her and our research about PIE and its widespread connections in Islington emphasise the importance of a police-led investigation, because many of those who held pro-paedophile views remain within professional systems and still have influence.”

No senior Islington councillors or officers were ever held accountable for the decades of abuse that went on in the council’s kids’ homes.

After 1995, Ms Marks’ career went from strength to strength.

She took up a role at the National Children’s Bureau and became mayor of Islington in 1996.

Today, she is a noted disabilities campaigner within the borough.

DRAFT AIM OF BURBIDGE & RIGHTON’S JOINT COUNCIL FOR GAY TEENAGERS, 25 NOVEMBER 1978

Burbidge kept Nettie Pollard (PIE member #70) in the loop on how he and (Peter) Righton were progressing with establishing the National Joint Council for Gay Teenagers. Copies of JCGT minutes in archive are addressed to Nettie in Burbidge’s handwriting.

During this period Burbidge was also active in lobbying for the legal defence of PIE by meeting with Dutch youth parliamentary people (as introduced by the British Youth Council), at Burbidge’s Department of Environment offices to discuss options to report back to CAPM.

A number of the invitees to the Council’s Gay Groups Meeting were of the same view as the Fallen Angels, the pro-paedophile rights groups Councillor Sandy Marks had been involved approximately 18 months before becoming elected – that paedophile rights to liberation such as the abolition of the age of consent – should be campaigned for within the mainstream gay rights movement.

CAPM’s third meeting was attended by (Lord Justice) Adrian Fulford, (Islington Chair of Social Services Committee) Sandy Marks, and two PIE members and NCCL Gay Rights Committee members Nettie Pollard and Tom O’Carroll. As Burbidge was already keeping Pollard appraised of how far progress was being made in pushing his pro-paedophile rights agenda in the gay youth movement, particularly in Islington, it is unsurprising he would document his attempts to network on behalf of CAPM.

Keith Veness recruited Sandy Marks to the Labour party in 1975 and is currently campaigning for her suspension to be lifted following Morgan QC’s Review determining Marks was more likely than not a Fallen Angel and involved with Conspiracy Against Public Morals, campaigning for PIE

Hailed as a PIE supporter by PIE chairman Steven Adrian Smith, Eric Presland, was invited to the meeting by Cllr Bob Crossman and met with Cllr Sandy Marks and Cllr Keith Veness. Veness, who was soon to become Jeremy Corbyn’s electoral agent for the next 9 or so years, has since defended Sandy Marks’ various denials of her involvement with Fallen Angels and following her suspension has demanded her reinstatement to Islington North Constituency Labour Party.

Westminster Paedophile Ring – Roddam Twiss / son of Sir Frank Twiss

Pervert son of a former Black Rod was quizzed by police investigating the Westminster child-sex abuse claims over his late father Sir Frank Twiss’ connection to a prolific paedophile MP

  • Two retired policemen reveal they were banned from investigating Twiss
  • The Mail on Sunday tracked down Twiss to a dingy flat in West London
  • He said he had given up ‘spanking’ boys and bragged of his access to Parliament 
12 May 2018

Claims about a Westminster child-sex ring took a new turn last night when it emerged that police have interviewed the paedophile son of a former Black Rod, the Queen’s envoy in the Lords.

Roddam Twiss – whose father Sir Frank was Black Rod in the 1970s, responsible for security and ceremonies at the Lords – was quizzed by officers investigating the claims.

The news came as two retired policemen told The Mail on Sunday they were banned from investigating Twiss in the late 1970s after Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith, a prolific child-sex abuser, was allegedly seen taking a rent boy to Twiss’s London home.

Hiding his past: Roddam Twiss last week

They say Mr Twiss:

  • Was well known among London’s rent boys;
  • Was banned from the Palace of Westminster by his father;
  • Visited Dolphin Square, the private apartment block in Westminster where Establishment figures allegedly had wild parties.

Police say their inquiries were halted when they told their superiors Twiss could be involved in a wider racket supplying rent boys to VIPs.

Incredibly, they didn’t know former prep school teacher Twiss had been jailed in 1967 for assaulting boys as young as 11, tying them up and beating them.

He was later imprisoned twice for fraud.

Nor did they know that he rented a room to Lennie Smith, one of Britain’s most vicious paedophiles.

The Mail on Sunday tracked down Twiss to a dingy flat in West London.

Twiss, who changed his name to Raymond Gibson in a bid to shake off his past, strongly denied any wrongdoing – but confirmed much of what the two policemen said.

He spoke frankly of his jail terms, said he had given up ‘spanking’ boys, and bragged of his access to Parliament and Dolphin Square, calling it ‘a den of iniquity for 30 years’.

He displayed an expert knowledge of London’s rent boy scene in 1970s and 1980s and described the ‘dangers’ faced by gay MPs and peers who picked up young men.

Twiss said he felt ‘alarmingly well’ for his 78 years. But asked if he knew the names of the politicians involved, he said: ‘No. And I wouldn’t tell you if I did.’

He said he had no idea police had investigated him at the time.

The developments come after a series of claims and counter-claims regarding allegations of a historic child sex abuse ring at Westminster.

Much-publicised claims that young boys had been raped and even murdered at Dolphin Square by VIPs turned out to have been made by a fantasist. Today’s disclosures will spark fresh speculation that not all the claims of sexual misconduct and rent boys at Westminster were groundless.

The new claims are expected to be considered by Alexis Jay, head of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse, who has reaffirmed her determination to find out if claims of a Westminster paedophile ring were covered up.

In a statement on Thursday, she vowed to look into ‘concern that police investigations into possible child sexual abuse linked with Westminster may have been the subject of inappropriate interference’.

She added she would also look into the disclosure last year that MI5 and the Director of Public Prosecutions lied to cover up the Cyril Smith rent boy scandal.

The MoS was told of the allegations about Twiss by two former vice squad officers. They investigated him after monitoring the ‘Meat Rack,’ a notorious haunt for rent boys in Piccadilly. They saw Smith pick up a youngster and followed him to an address in Cricklewood, North-West London.

When they found out that it was the home of Twiss, they investigated him and uncovered his links to the corridors of power. When they told their superiors, the investigation was abruptly scrapped.

The two former police officers, who have asked to remain anonymous, said they were deeply frustrated by the decision. One went on to hold a series of high-profile security jobs and the other worked for a well-known sports team.

One of them recalled: ‘We went to the police station in Belgravia, and found a file that said Twiss had been banned by his father from entering the Palace of Westminster. He also went to Dolphin Square late at night. We thought he could be procuring boys for bigger figures from pimps at the Meat Rack. Well-to-do people would not want to be seen somewhere like that. We also followed him to the Meat Rack. Our superiors called it off. We assumed it was to protect VIPs.’

Asked why they did not discover Twiss’s 1967 conviction for assaulting young boys, one of the former policemen said: ‘We had trouble finding out anything about him.’

As well as serving as Black Rod, Twiss’s father Sir Frank was Secretary to the Lord Great Chamberlain, whose duties include dressing the Monarch on Coronation Day. After he died in 1994, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh attended his thanksgiving service.

Well-connected: Sir Frank Twiss, the former Black Rod

A former Admiral, Sir Frank had connections to Royal, military and political elites. In 1960 he was made Naval Secretary to First Sea Lord, Lord Carrington, later Defence Secretary under Edward Heath and Foreign Secretary under Margaret Thatcher. As Second Sea Lord in 1968, Sir Frank ordered a crackdown on the ‘unnatural vice’ of homosexuality in the Navy.

There have been persistent claims that Meat Rack inquiries were blocked to protect VIPs. In 2016, former Chief Inspector Howard Groves said police were warned not to investigate Establishment figures. And Norman Tebbit, a Cabinet Minister in the 1980s, has said there ‘may well’ have been a cover-up to protect ‘the system.’

With their permission, this newspaper passed details of the two officer to Wiltshire Police, which carried out Operation Conifer into claims about Sir Edward Heath. Officers interviewed both men.

Mr Twiss told us that three officers from the operation interviewed him for three hours. He denied any wrongdoing.

‘The rent boys would claim to be over age but were more like 14’ 

‘I thought I’d be dead by now, but I’m alarmingly well,’ says Roddam Twiss as I interview him at his dingy flat in West London.

At 78 his memory is as sharp as a knife as he describes the London rent-boy scene of the 1970s and 1980s and the ‘Meat Rack’: ‘It started at the railings of the Regent Palace Hotel.

‘Rent boys looking for customers would lean on the railings and men looking for boys would go and see if they fancied anyone.

VIP parties: Dolphin Square

‘But it was dangerous. Most of the boys just wanted to rob you for drugs. It was much safer to pick up one in one of Soho’s gay drinking clubs. They would all say they were over age but some were more like 14 or 15.’

Twiss says political figures were among those who went looking for rent boys. But asked if he knew their names, he replies ‘No. And if I could I wouldn’t tell you’, adding: ‘There were more Tories than Labour.’

When I ask Twiss what he knows about claims of a paedophile ring at Westminster, he says police investigating historic child abuse visited him recently and spent three hours asking him similar questions, mainly about Sir Edward Heath. He told them he did not believe the former PM abused young boys.

As we chat in his front room, Twiss introduces me to Martin, 28, who he says is his carer. A succession of other scruffy young men stroll in and out of the flat. ‘I’m gay – I make no bones about that,’ says Twiss, unprompted.

He says he met scandal-hit Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe ‘in passing’ and was ‘always suspicious’ about him, and adds that ‘everyone knew’ Cyril Smith was picking up young rent boys in Soho.

When I tell Truss he was followed by police around 1978 or 1979, he is shocked.

But he corroborates key aspects of the police story: he lived above a parade of shops in Cricklewood and was a regular visitor to Dolphin Square. However, he flatly denies Smith took a rent boy to his flat. ‘I knew Cyril was into boys. But absolutely not. It would have brought shame to my father.’

Asked if he was a ‘fixer’ who procured rent boys for other Westminster figures, he replies sharply: ‘Even if I was I wouldn’t tell you, I assure you.’ And he insists he never went to the ‘Meat Rack’.

However, he is happy to boast of his connections. ‘My father was Black Rod and high-profile in political circles… I used to visit him at the Lords where he had a grace and favour home.’

His second entrée to high society was through his ‘stockbroker’, the Hon Mervyn Greenway, millionaire playboy son of the 3rd Baron Greenway. ‘Mervyn knew everyone in high places,’ says Twiss. ‘I met them through him.’ He often visited Greenway at his flat in Dolphin Square, a place he says was perfect for residents, including Westminster figures, who wanted to misbehave.

‘If you knew the right porter, you’d leave a few pounds and they would allow your guests in with no questions asked.’

Parties would start in the flats and then ‘spill outside into the square on balmy summer evenings. It was ‘a den of iniquity for 30 years’, with residents’ ‘mistresses and prostitutes’ among the guests.

Including male prostitutes? ‘Yes, probably.’ But again, he can’t – or won’t – name names.

Twiss says his father ‘thought I should have done more with my life’ and was disappointed he did not follow him into the Armed Forces, instead going into teaching. But he refuses to believe his father banned him from the Palace of Westminster.

He says he gave up ‘spanking’ young boys long ago and he changed his name to Raymond Gibson after finishing his third jail sentence in 2006 and ‘disappeared’ from London, moving to Sheerness, Kent.

Roddam Twiss has a string of criminal convictions. In 1967, he was jailed for three years on seven charges of assaulting boys as young as 11. He and another man were said to have ‘stripped, tied up and beaten’ their victims.

In the 1980s, he served 18 months in jail for a business con, seeking investment in a fake cheesecake factory. And in 2004 at Southwark Crown Court, he was handed a three-and-a-half-year sentence for a £1.2 million scam.

He was accused of duping wealthy Americans using ‘flannel’ and dropping the names of ‘titled and influential people.’

It was also said that Twiss tried, unsuccessfully, to entice DJ Paul Gambaccini into investing in one of his dubious schemes.

Roddam Twiss  – He rented a room to vile paedophile

When police investigated Roddam Twiss in the late 1970s, it appears they had no idea that one of Britain’s most vicious paedophiles, Lennie Smith, was renting a room from him.

Twiss confirmed that Smith, jailed in 1992 for his part in a paedophile gang that killed five boys, once rented a room at his Cricklewood Broadway flat.

Twiss said he helped police to investigate Smith, adding: ‘He was a nasty individual and I was content to provide police with information they deemed useful.’

The paedophile, above, was reportedly 23 when he left Twiss’s flat, which suggests it was around 1978 or 1979 – the same time police were investigating Twiss after following Cyril Smith to Cricklewood.

Twiss told us he met Limahl, real name Chris Hamill, when the singer was a teenager.

Hamill lived with him in Cricklewood and Twiss would drive him to clubs including gay haunt Heaven, where DJ Paul Gambaccini was given Hamill’s demo tape in 1982.

Limahl (Hamill) later moved in with Gambaccini.

Driberg befriended at various times the satanist Aleister Crowley and the Kray twins.

After his death, allegations were published about his role over many years as an MI5 informant, a KGB agent, or both.

 

Interestingly, Peter Ball, Trevor Huddleston and Tom Driberg all attended Lancing College.

Tom Driberg had attended Lancing College where he fell under the spell of Adam Fox and his pagan verses in the hymn book, who later becomes Sub-Dean of Westminster Abbey

Aged 16, Robin Bryans first went to St Wulfran’s in 1944 with Father Charlton, prebendary of Chichester Cathedral and Tom Driberg MP, then an Independent MP for Malden, Essex (later Labour MP for Barking 1959-1974 )

“Hidden in its fold of Sussex downland, St Wulfran’s inevitably attracted black magic adherents who believed that the ancient church was built on an even more ancient site of a pagan temple. At first my visit to the church with Tom Driberg and Father Charlton in 1944, I could not possibly have foreseen the reaction of Brighton Corporation to Louis Wilkinson’s reading of the Hymn of Pan at Bear Road crematoriam over the hill or that in 1980 a High Court jury would hear me described not even by Crowley’s title of the Great Beast but as The Devil himself!”

p.119

https://bitsofbooksblog.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/rottingdean/

Peter Ball was involved with confirmations at Lancing College when he was Bishop of Lewes …

Lancing College has certainly seen its fair share of hot tempers – like in June 1980 when a college boy from Japan took his pre-confirmation vow of silence too far.

The 18-year-old had been told not speak to anyone by the Bishop of Lewes to make sure he was fully prepared for the ceremony, so he went for a walk by himself along the River Adur.

Without a word, he marched up to the boys and stamped on their bicycles, causing more than £30 damage.

http://www.theargus.co.uk/news/9972266._Tickle_Toby__canings_at_Lancing_College/

Lancing alumnus Tom Driberg, like Bishop Ball, was involved with satanists

In 1925 the self-professed black magician and wickedest man in the world Aleister Crowley received a letter from an undergraduate at Oxford University. The student was Tom Driberg.

Crowley said grace – “Pardon me while I invoke the moon” – and over a London restaurant table informed his promising young follower that “he had decided to nominate me as his successor as world teacher”.

…upon Crowley’s death in 1947 an anxious Driberg – by then a Member of Parliament – burst into the apartment of Crowley’s executor and anxiously demanded the return of certain correspondence.

https://www.lashtal.com/570-old-news/

Tom Driberg – was a British journalist, politician, High Anglican churchman and possible Soviet spy, who served as a Member of Parliament (MP) from 1942-55, and again from 1959-74.

Driberg left for the Far East, to report on the conditions of the allied troops in Burma. The Supreme Allied Commander, Lord Mountbatten,  made him an unofficial temporary special adviser

Always in search of bizarre experiences, Driberg befriended at various times the occultist Aleister Crowley and the Kray twins, along with honoured and respected figures in the worlds of literature and politics. He combined this lifestyle with an unwavering devotion to Anglo-Catholicism. After his death, allegations were published about his role over many years as an MI5 informant, a KGB agent, or both.

 

In 1963 he met the Kray twins and began a lengthy friendship with them and their associates.[98] In July 1964 two backbench Conservative MPs reported to their Chief Whip that Driberg and Lord Boothby (a well-known Conservative peer) had been importuning males at a dog track, and were involved with gangs of thugs.[99]

 

He was reported by Anthony Blunt for passing information on the Party to Maxwell Knight of MI5. Driberg and Knight were long-standing acquaintances who met frequently and, among other things, shared a mutual interest in the works of Aleister Crowley.[39]

 

At parties which Driberg and Boothby attended at the Krays’ flat, “rough East End lads were served like so many canapés”, according to Wheen. While Driberg avoided publicity, Boothby was hounded by the press and forced to issue a series of denials. After the twins had been convicted of murder in 1969, Driberg frequently lobbied the Home Office about their prison conditions, requesting that they be given more visits and allowed regular reunions.[100]

Driberg, was friends with Mervyn Stockwood, the Bishop of Southwark

Peter Ball began his ministry as a curate in Rottingdean.

Ball was ordained in the Church of England as a deacon in 1956 and as a priest in 1957.[6] He began his ministry as a curate in Rottingdean.[7]

Peter Ball:

After theological college, it was Bishop Bell ultimately who did sponsored [sic] me for ordination, but with the approval of the Selection Board. Bishop Bell then placed me in the parish of Rottingdean where I undertook my first curacy.

‘He would visit my curacy on occasion to carry out confirmations and to take services.

‘We had a good working relationship; I was aware that he was “fond” of me. He was someone who I looked up to when I was a young curate starting out in the Church.’

What went on in Rottingdean, East Sussex?

In the small village of Rottingdean on the East Sussex coast where Lord Robert Boothby grew up (p.50) attending St Aubyns Prep school until 1913/14, aged 13, and to where he sometimes returned, the author of The Dust has Never Settled*, Robin Bryans became a regular visitor during the 1950s to visit Peter Harris, resident at St Dunstan’s, Ovingdean’s  famous residential home for blind veterans. During the war the young Peter Harris was both blinded and completely paralysed and Bryans often used to take him for walks across the downs, describing to him the scenery as they went. Slightly down the coast, Tom Driberg had attended Lancing College

Harris lived at St Dunstan’s [See Blind Veterans UK on map above] and together he and Bryans would meander down the lane to take shelter in St Wulfran’s porch, doing a crossword together, while ignoring Crowley’s devotees coming into the churchyard to light candles and leave relics.

p.121

During 1976 over games of chess down at the local pub [Queen Victoria, Rottingdean] the police asked if Bryans had seen much of Crowley’s black mass people around Ovingdean because “more than usual black chicken feathers and blood had been seen, and the unsolved murder of Keith’s young schoolfriend was still on police record.”

When we opened it we dropped it on the floor like it was a time bomb. We didn’t want to take anything that might give us extra trouble so we left it

And what was most disturbing was the child pornography we found.

  • His pop star son, Adam Ant, had a string of chart hits in the 1980s 
  • Goddard has now been dragged into the Westminster child abuse probe 
  • He was part of a gang that included notorious paedophile Sidney Cooke

https://i1.wp.com/i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2015/08/29/22/2BBFF2EB00000578-0-image-m-29_1440884853285.jpg

Goddard’s links to the controversial Operation Midland were revealed by ex-Tory MP Harvey Proctor last week in his furious denunciation of police for treating him as a suspect on the basis of claims made by a single, unnamed alleged victim.

Mr Proctor said he had been asked by officers if he knew Goddard during a lengthy police interview last Monday, in which he was also accused of taking part in sick child abuse alongside former Prime Minister Edward Heath.

‘I was asked if I knew a number of people including Leslie Goddard,’ the former politician said, adding that he did not know him.

One source said last night: ‘It’s an important angle and I don’t think many people know Goddard was part of a ring who were suspected of supplying boys to VIPs.’

Goddard, then 58, was jailed for two years in June 1987 after being convicted at the Old Bailey of sex offences against two boys.

He was one of 12 men told by a judge that they had ‘taken advantage’ of the youths ‘to gratify your sexual desires’. The court heard they had ‘procured’ boys who had run away from home or were in care, plied them with drink and drugs then ‘hawked them about’ to men across London.

At the time, Goddard lived in Eccleston Square, Pimlico, close to the exclusive apartments of Dolphin Square where the VIP child abuse ring is said to have been based.

It was later claimed that his father’s disgrace contributed to the depression and mental health problems later suffered by his son, born Stuart Leslie Goddard, who as Adam Ant enjoyed seven Top 10 singles.

Two years after Goddard was sentenced, his co-defendant Sidney Cooke was one of four jailed for the manslaughter of Jason Swift. The gang took turns to rape the 14-year-old before his strangled body was found in a shallow grave.

Cooke is now 88 and still behind bars. Goddard died in 1997.

National archive files on Frank Roddham Twiss from 1971 just recently opened in March 2018

http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C16658522

Smith, Lennie (Leonard William)

Leonard William Gilchrist Smith
Born on 23rd August 1954 in Montgomeryshire, Wales Lennie Smith was taken into care after leaving school at fourteen and was, by then, already an active rent boy. Consistently absconding from various care homes he was heavily involved in the gay scene in Oxford, Birmingham and London and accumulated convictions for burglary, theft and attempting to obtain goods by deception.

In London he operated at Victoria Station (where he first met Robert Oliver circa 1973) and the Piccadilly “meat rack” and lived for four years at an address on Eaton Place in Belgravia, “with the son of a man who held a prestigious and historic parliamentary post, meeting him first as a client who enjoyed being tied up and whipped”.

Smith then moved to Southend, working as an amusement arcade assistant for an elderly homosexual called Jack Parsons, who was described as Smith’s “sugar daddy” and whom Smith referred to as his grandad.  The amusement arcade was a cover for dealing in drugs, prostitution of boys and the picking up of boys. At the age of twenty three he was convicted for gross indecency.

In the early 1980’s Smith based himself in Birmingham, and served a year in prison after being convicted for burglary, theft and criminal damage offences. Upon his release he returned to London, becoming the tenant of 70 Templemead on the Kingsmead Estate. Only 5ft 2 in height and looking very young for his age Smith lasted longer than most as a rent boy however he moved on from rent boy to pimp.

In 1984 Smith married a Bolivian student at Hackney Registry Office, having been paid £500 to do so, so the student could secure her residency. By this point he was living at 36 Ashmead House, a flat which was also shared with Robert Oliver and Donald Smith who was the tenant. It was in this flat that Jason Swift was to meet his death a year later.

Also in 1984 Lennie and Donald Smith met Leslie Bailey and introduced him to homosexual ‘orgies’.

Operation Stranger was launched on 17th January 1986 and eventually resulted in conviction of the ‘Dirty Dozen’ gang and four convictions for the killing of Jason Swift. Under Operation Stranger, Smith was arrested in February 1986 and was remanded in custody where he remained until the dirty dozen trial in June 1987 where he was convicted and given a thirty month sentence.

Released from Wandsworth Prison on 23rd October 1987 detectives immediately arrested him outside the prison gates and the following day Smith was charged with the murder of Jason Swift. Immediately remanded ito custody again, Smith remained in custody until he was released at the committal stages in February 1988 when charges were dropped against him.

During the 1989 trial of Cooke, Bailey, Barrell and Oliver for the murder of Jason Swift Bronwyn Bevan QC stated that Jason had become involved with Lennie Smith who then handed him to Sidney Cooke “because he feared the police were taking an unhealthy interest in him”. Smith had always denied knowing Jason but police had uncovered eight witnesses who said differently.  Former rent boy Derek Crabbe said he had seen Jason about a dozen times in 36 Ashmead. A neighbour also recalled seeing Jason leaving Smith’s flat at 70 Templemead.

In May 1989, and immediately after the Jason Swift trial had drawn to a close, Smith was tracked down to a flat at Savernake House in Stoke Newington where he was living with “a bloated, middle aged man who worked as a sub-editor on the Daily Telegraph”. The day following the verdict the Daily Mirror’s front page carried a photo of Smith with the headline “This Man is Evil”.

The Operation Orchid team kept him under close surveillance because his name cropped up more than any other, and on 2nd May 1990, he was arrested at a public toilet where he had indecently assaulted a child. He was sentenced to three years.

Whilst serving the three-year sentence Smith was interviewed with regards to other offences involving a six year old boy. In May 1992, he was charged with offences in relation to this boy and when he was released remanded into custody until his trial.

During the 1991 investigation into Smith in respect to his abuse of the boy he babysat, a friend of the boy’s family who had lived on the same estate was traced to Newcastle.  He emerged as a useful witness but died several months later from AIDS, although not before making a statement to police on his deathbed, detailing homosexual activity on the Kingsmead estate, and also naming a gay priest, who was seen driving children to orgies there.  Robert Oliver had also previously revealed that Smith had passed one boy – a 15 year old called “Michael” on to a gay priest friend of his who took the boy down to Brighton.

Though closely linked to the killing of seven-year-old Mark Tildesley and Barry Lewis, and named in court during the 1992 trial of Leslie Bailey, Smith was never charged.

The CPS decided that, whilst evidence existed, a prosecution against Lennie Smith (and Sidney Cooke) would fail because it relied too heavily on Bailey’s evidence and Bailey’s confession was not enough to prosecute Smith and Cooke.  Leslie Bailey was the only one convicted in relation to Mark’s death.

Smith had always replied “No comment” when asked about Mark.

“That’s all he would say, with a very straight face,” according to former Detective Chief Superintendent Roger Stoodley, who brought the paedophile ring to justice. “He was very calm and very cunning.”

On 9th December 1992 Smith was sentenced to ten years imprisonment for a string of vicious sexual assaults eight years earlier against a six year old boy who he had been baby-sitting. It was reported that on one occasion the boy was taken by Smith to an illicit gay club in the West End.  The boy told the court he had witnessed two men having sex.

Upon Smith’s release in 1999 former police chief superintendent Roger Stoodley, who brought Smith to justice, said“wherever he goes children will die. He will always try and offend again. He does not deserve to have any freedom whatsoever”

Released into a prison housing unit for former sex offenders in 1999, Smith died of AIDS in 2006.

Sources include “Lambs to the Slaughter” by Ted Oliver and Ramsey Smith, “Catching Monsters” by David Bright, and press reports.

trial, even though some of the killers said in statements that he was in the flat in Hackney, East London, during the orgy in 1985.

Statements by accused people cannot be used as evidence against others unless they are repeated in the witness box — so the charges had to be dropped.

“When we arrested Lennie Smith he was the only one who admitted absolutely nothing.” a detective said.

“The other four admitted being present an were able to charge them.”

When the Daily Mirror confronted Smith in his dingy North London flat, we caught him with his trousers down.

He refused to answer questions about the death of Jason Swift.

“Why don’t you **** off and leave me alone he screamed.

“Were you there when Jason died?” we asked.”

“I don’t want to talk about it,” he retorted.

“What do you feel about Jason’s death?”

“Nothing. I’m saying nothing,” he said as he fled into the night still only half-dressed and leaving his front door open.

The prosecution told the trial: “It was through lennie Smith, a homosexual with a particular leaning towards young boys, that Jason was introduced to these defendants.

Smith 35, a former rent boy,has been convicted five times for gross indecency.

And in June 1987 he was jailed for 2 1/2 years along with pop star Adam Ant’s father Leslie Goddard for taking part in a child sex racket…'[ SEE BELOW]

 £1.2m fraud of Black Rod’s son

His father was Sir Frank Twiss, a war hero who survived a Japanese PoW camp and went on to become Admiral of the Fleet and the House of Lords’ Black Rod.

29 July 2004

With his public-school education, connections and charm,Roddam Twiss could have aspired to emulate his father’s achievements.

But today he sits in Belmarsh prison, awaiting sentencing for a £1.2million fraud. Twiss, 64, was found guilty of conspiracy to defraud and was warned by a judge to expect to be jailed when he returns to court in September.

The former teacher had traded on his name to persuade friends and acquaintances to invest in his scheme, with the promise of “high yield” returns and the chance of helping Third World humanitarian causes. A substantial number of US investors were taken in by his pitch and by numerous lengthy, but bogus, documents.

A total of £1.2million was transferred to two sham companies run by Twiss from his former council flat in Bethnal Green. Instead of investing the money Twiss used it to clear his £40,000 mortgage and buy a £48,000 Jaguar. He and his Lebanese-born accomplice Emile Coury, 62, banked the rest of the money in London, France, Guernsey, Switzerland and Lebanon.

Prosecuting counsel Sir Derek Spencer QC told Southwark Crown Court: “His technique was that of a confidence trickster. He used high-sounding business names and verbose language, which was mostly flannel. He name-dropped, making references to a number of titled and influential people.”

Twiss’s victims were well-to-do American professionals such as Miami accountant Anthony Brunson, who put in £68,000 of his savings, and Miami lawyer Kimberley Daise who, with another three people, invested £194,000.

But nearly 40 years ago Twiss had picked on a far more vulnerable group of victims — young schoolboys. In 1967, when he was a 27-year-old teacher in Hampshire, Twiss was jailed for three years for indecently assaulting, stripping and beating five boys, one as young as 11.

Sir Frank Twiss

The conviction must have come as a terrible blow to Sir Frank, a man of impeccable character and moral strength. The year Twiss was jailed for indecency, his father was promoted to full admiral and would go on to become Black Rod, one of the key ceremonial figures in the Houses of Parliament. He died in 1994.

By the mid-Eighties Roddam Twiss had become involved in London’s rent-boy scene, paying £20 to young men to beat him. He was nicknamed “The Teacher” and known for his sado-masochistic tastes.

Soon after he was sentenced to another three years, this time for a £5,000 business fraud. Over the years Twiss had moved on to the fringes of London’s music scene. He befriended Limahl, who would go on to become the lead singer of Eighties pop band Kajagoogoo, and helped fund two of his early records, recorded under his real name Chris Hamill.

During the Nineties, Twiss set up financial consultancy Dragon Rampant. Here he sacked one of his stockbrokers after the man took an overdose at his desk.

Twiss fired off a curt letter to Leslie Walbrook calling his suicide bid “inconsiderate”. Mr Walbrook’s wife Gill said at the time: “Twiss is a cruel, heartless beast.”

Like many conmen, however, Twiss managed to mask his true intentions beneath a veneer of affable sophistication.

The Serious Fraud Office is trying to recover what is left of the money Twiss swindled from investors.

Sir Frank Twiss’s second cousin Peter Twiss, 83, a retired test pilot who in 1956 broke the world’s absolute speed record, said: “Sir Frank was an outstanding man. He would have been devastated that his son has been convicted.”

Admiral’s son jailed for fraud

13 Oct 2004

A public school-educated conman whose father served as Black Rod in the House of Lords was jailed yesterday for swindling money out of investors who believed they were helping humanitarian projects in the Third World.

Roddam Twiss, 64, was sentenced to three and a half years for conspiracy to defraud after taking £1.2 million from people in the US and Europe. He used his share to clear the mortgage on his house in Bethnal Green, east London, and buy a £48,000 Jaguar.

His accomplice, Emile Coury, 62, escaped prosecution by fleeing to the Lebanon.

Twiss, the son of the former Admiral of the Fleet Sir Frank Twiss, was found guilty in July.

“Vishal’s body was found on the edge of Durford Abbey Farm, less than 3 miles from Harting.

“Peter Morrison (‘child abuser’) had taken a boy from Harting and assaulted him at Elm Guest House (boy brothel) in Barnes, SW London.

“Michael Mates (MP for Petersfield) lived at Durford Mill as well as Dolphin Square (site of boy brothel) next to Nicholas Fairbairn (‘child abuser’).”

Petersfield | scepticpeg..

Michael Mates was educated at Salisbury Cathedral School, Blundell’s School and King’s College, Cambridge, where he was a choral scholar.

He served for twenty years in the British Army, leaving in 1974 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel with the 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards.

From 1992 to 1993, Mates was Minister of State at the Northern Ireland Office.

The Kincora boy brothel in Northern Ireland.
Mates resigned after a scandal involving his links to fugitive businessman Asil Nadir.[2]

Asil Nadir was said to be involved in the ‘Arms to Iraq’ scandal.

Mates served as the Chairman of the Defence (1987–1992) and Northern Ireland (2001–2005) select committees and chaired the All-PartyAnglo-Irish Parliamentary Group.

Michael Mates is the father of James Mates, a senior reporter and presenter for ITN.

Lord McAlpine, who got money for the Conservative Party fromAsil Nadir

Anonymous left a comment, on the post “COLBY, BARAK, ROTHSCHILD, EPSTEIN, MAXWELL...“, pointing out possible links between the UK child abuse scandal and the sale of arms to Iraq.

1. TheTurkish Cypriot newspaper Kibrisli (13.01.12) reported that Britain illegally sold weapons to Saddam Hussein’s regime through a company run by a wealthy British businessman called Asil Nadir.Lord McAlpine persuaded Asil Nadir to give a large sum of money to the UK Conservative Party.

2. The Turkish newspaper reported that “an experienced intelligence specialist, who worked for 20 years with the CIA”, told the Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet that a CIA document shows that the British ‘deep state’ used Nadir’s company for an illegal weapon’s sale.

CIA document shows deep British state involved in secret arms sale …

“The documents which contain the details of USA-UK cooperation, along with the cover for the secret weapon sale’s network, expose that the ‘deep state’ used a series of dirty paths, including murder.

“The documents prove that Unipac, a company based in occupied Famagusta and which is connected to Nadir’s Polly Peck, was among a set of companies used for selling guns to Iraq.

“According to the intelligence specialist, Mark Thatcher, son of ex-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, received a 12 million fortune from a weapons sale and Nadir’s company Polly Peck tried to cover it.

“This pushed the button for the company’s collapse under the British Serious Fraud Office.”

3. Asil Nadir ran an international fruit, shipping and leisure conglomerate, called Polly Peck.

Elizabeth Forsyth was Nadir’s personal banker.

‘My father Thomas McAlpine of the Scottish McAlpine construction family always treated me as if I was an adult,’ she says.

“It was a raid on Miss Forsyth’s company, South Audley Management (set up to manage Nadir’s personal matters), by the Serious Fraud Office in September 1990 that triggered the collapse of Polly Peck International…

“The sudden implosion of the international fruit, shipping and leisure conglomerate left 23,000 shareholders with worthless stock…

“Nadir later fled by private jet to his home in Northern Cyprus where he remained until two years ago.”

4. Angus James Wilson was the co-founder of Scallywag Magazine, together with his half brother Simon Regan.

Angus told Simon “that he had been supplied with compromising pictures of ….”

The photos were of a top cabinet minister, alleged to be linked to the Welsh child abuse scandal.

Reportedly, in 1996, Angus took the photos to Northern Cyprus to show to Asil Nadir.

Almost immediately afterwords, Angus died in a car crash in Cyprus (September 1996.)

Someone “took all Angus’s possessions into his own custody, presumably with the photographs.”

Angus James Wilson died in 1996 and Simon Regan died around 2000.

“I understand MI6 used British companies to get around the embargo; many were collapsed to take the fall, leaving a lot of disgruntled businessmen like Gerald Reavney James, Astra.

“Scallywag (Wilson, Davis) had compromising photos of Y, which they were selling to Nadir.

“Giovanni di Stefano is representing Nadir: he has refused to withdraw allegations re X.

“X was somehow connected to the SA nuclear matter.

“No wonder there was no libel claim re the Scallywag article.”


Mafia?

Reportedly, the CIA document, which has not yet been made public, implicates “MI6 agent Stephan Kock” and contains the statement that the arrest of Polly Peck CEO Asil Nadir was arranged through the British Serious Fraud Office.

“Claims have also been made that apart from Mark Thatcher, the then Defence Sales Organisations chairman Lord Levene and British Military Services chairman Lord Cuckney had retired after having become millionaires from the arms sale to Iraq. 

“The CIA document also gives coverage to the suspicious death of experienced journalist Jonathan Moyle in Chile in the wake of the surfacing of allegations concerning Matrix Churchill, Astra and CIA connected Chilean company Allivane regarding the arms sale to Iraq.

“Claims had been made that Stephan Kock was responsible for the suspicious death of Moyle who was the editor of the Helicopter Defence World.

“There are claims that Moyle was murdered in a way that looked like natural death after he had started investigating Cardoen who was a close friend of Mark Thatcher and was in control of the Allivane company which was planning to sell helicopters to Iraq.

“There are other claims which say that the MI6 and SAS were responsible for the murder of Gerald Bull who was killed in an assassination that was carried out outside his home in Brussels. Gerald Bull was a Canadian engineer who was the architect of the arms sale apparently.”

“Remember Operation Orchid in the 1980s, when police broke a paedophile ring who had murdered four young boys from the East End of London. At the end of that inquiry, detectives released the names of six other boys who were also missing and who, they feared, might also have been victims. And, unofficially, they admitted that they knew there were up to a dozen members of the ring who had escaped prosecution“.

From the GLO database on the Needle

Hackney Gazette, 12th June 1987 (ocr)

TWELVE homosexuals who preyed on young runaway boys were jailed for a total of 36 years and three months at the Old Bailey.

Judge Michael Underhill told them: “For the protection of the young il must be made absolutely clear that those who seek to abuse them for their own purposes will face heavy sentences.”

The judge said: “Runaway boys have to be protected from their own folly and inexperience. You took .advantage of their weakness to gratify your sexual desires. The shock consequence of that can lead to a victim becoming a male Prostitute or rent boy whose only prospect is one of degradation and misery.”

The twelve men, who included the father of pop singer Adam Ant, pleaded guilty or were convicted of a variety of serious sexual offences against two boys aged 13, one of 11 and one aged 14.

Among the defendants were Leonard William Smith, 31, of Templemead House, Hackney; Sidney Charles Cooke, 59, of Oswalds Mead, Lindisfarne Way, Hackney; Simon Haeems, 35, of Victoria Road, Stoke Newington; Walter Ballantyne, 46, of Hathersage Court, Newington Green, Islington; Colin Byrne, 18, of the same address; Daniel Paine, 33, of Maiden Road, Kentish Town, and Roy Alan Morris, 26, of Crowndale Road, Camden.

Also in the dock were: Alfred Goddard, 58. of Victoria, the father of Adam Ant; John Thornton, 36, of New Addington, Surrey; John Stead, 23, also of New Addington, and Edward Talbot, 47, from Luton.

Ballantyne, with previous convictions for sex offences against hoys, was jailed for six years and three months. Byrne was put on probation for a year.

Smith and Morris were each jailed for 30 months; Turner and Stead for five years; Haeems, Paine and Goddard for two years; Thornton for eight years; Talbot for a year, and Cooke remanded on bail for reports.

Crown prosecutor Mr John Sevan told the court that between January 1984 and January last year the defendants procured and corrupted boys who had run away from home or from council care.

Boys were “hawked about” all over London, staying for a week or two at the homes of different men who passed them on when they got tired of the lads. To keep one step ahead of police, social workers or parents, the men hid the boys.

The victims were plied with drink and drugs including cannabis, amphetamines and LSD to weaken their resistance to sexual demands.

“This group of men had the wickedness to introduce boys to the so-called delights of drugs and unnatural sex,” counsel said.

Ballantyne, a stallholder at Dalston Market, was one of the ringleaders of the network.

Paedophiles and Fun Fairs

Fun fairs are a big part of english culture, me myself hated them, I always found them sinister,and scary and a perfect vehicle to procure children, where people are strange(lost boys) here is some examples…

UK Victims snared at funfairs

Paedophile Sidney Cooke set up his own funfair stall at fairgrounds around the country to lure his unsuspecting victims. The 72-year-old, nicknamed Hissing Sid, used a children’s Test Your Strength machine to meet his victims and trap them into under-age sex orgies. With his friends Robert Oliver, Lennie Smith and Leslie Bailey, former farm worker Cooke would drug the children before subjecting them to brutal assaults. Habitually dressed in a dirty suit and trilby hat, he was one of a gang in the 1980s suspected of the deaths of up to nine boys.

Operating from a flat on the Kingsmead estate in Hackney, east London, the gang hired underage male prostitutes or snatched children off the streets to torture them sexually, including Jason Swift, a 14-year-old rent boy from Hackney. A group of men each paid £5 to have sex with Jason in the Kingsmead flat. He was later found strangled in a shallow grave on the outskirts of London.

Det Supt Bright of Essex Police described Cooke as “cocky and arrogant” before he eventually confessed to Jason’s killing. It was appalling beyond belief,” he said. Det Bright described how the gang would stalk boys at fairgrounds as if they were hunting prey. He added: “There are certain cases that you work on during your career that will never leave you. I will never forget Jason.”

Cooke was sent to prison for 19 years in 1989 for Jason’s manslaughter but managed to get his sentence reduced to 16 years and was released after nine. Bailey named him as one of the killers of Mark Tildesley, seven, who disappeared after visiting a funfair near his home in Wokingham, Berkshire. Police believe he was lured away from the fair by Cooke on the promise of a 50p bag of sweets.

He was then tortured and killed by Cooke’s gang in a caravan in almost exactly the same way as Jason. But in 1991 the CPS declined to prosecute Cooke for Mark’s death as he was already in prison for killing Jason.

Cooke has indicated that he knows where Mark’s body is buried but refuses to tell police or the boy’s grieving parents exactly where his grave is.

During his time in Wandsworth Prison in London Cooke was held on a special wing for sex offenders. He became the centre of attention, admired by other paedophiles for the extent of his depravity and the lengths he was prepared to go to ensnare his victims. Detective Constable Tina Birnie said: “He (Cooke) has been put on a pedestal because he killed all of those kids. It was a fantasy to all those paedophiles to go a bit further.”

After his release in April last year Cooke lived, at his own request, in a suite of three cells at Yeovil police station in Somerset for his own safety. He was arrested at the police station by detectives investigating allegations of serious sexual offences.

Paedophile Lee Bamford, himself abused as a child, tried to get funfair jobs

A 20-YEAR-OLD paedophile who abused a young boy has been banned from having contact with children after trying to get jobs at two funfairs. Lee Bamford, from South Croydon, has been given a sexual offences prevention order – despite claims it was a breach of his human rights.The sex pest, who was abused as a child at funfairs, was caught trying to gain employment at a fair in Crystal Palace in April and another in Purley in May.

Croydon Magistrates’ Court heard on Friday that Bamford, of Normanton Road, had abused a six-year-old boy and still posed a “serious risk” to young children. Gareth Munday, prosecuting, said the defendant had grown up in a difficult family background and was sexually abused eight years ago. He was taken into care and housed with other young victims, but was eventually removed. Mr Munday said: “It appears the problem which had arisen in his early years continued. It was no longer appropriate for him to be in group care.”

Bamford was then placed with foster parents but came into contact with a boy who he abused. But the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to take the case to a full trial because of the young ages of Bamford and his victim.Croydon Council secured funding to give the youngster 24-hour care in Liverpool where he remained for four years before returning to Croydon.

He then received support from a care worker who raised concerns about his “inability to cope with his urges”. Mr Munday said: “Through his behaviour and determination to attend funfairs, where he was abused when he was young, it will be a spring board to him starting offending again.”He’s unable, unless forced to do so, to address his problems.”

Rad Kohanzad, defending, said he did not contest the application but there were concerns about how long the sexual offences prevention order should be made for. The prosecution argued that it should be indefinite whereas Mr Kohanzad said it should be for five years – the minimum time for such an order. “It’s right to say that this order is an infringement on his human rights,” he said. “It’s still a reduction on his rights and his freedom. “He is only 20 now. Five years is a substantial period of time. It’s a quarter of his life so far.” But magistrates said the order would last until a further one was made because he had showed reluctance to engage with professionals and seek help for his problem.

Under the terms of the order, he is banned from having contact or communicating with children under 16. He is also prohibited from attending funfairs and seeking or undertaking any employment which brings him into contact with youngsters.Bamford is able to apply to have the order lifted after five years.

Defendant ‘was at funfair’, Sarah Payne jury told

The man accused of murdering eight-year-old Sarah Payne claimed he was at a funfair on the night she was abducted, a court was told today.
Police officers who visited Roy Whiting’s one-bedroom flat in Littlehampton, West Sussex, on July 2 last year, the day after Sarah vanished, asked the defendant where he had been the night before.

Mr Whiting, who denies kidnapping and murdering Sarah, claimed he left his flat at 5.30pm and drove to a funfair in a park in Hove, returning to his home at 9.30pm. Lewes crown court heard from Detective Constable Christopher Saunders who went to Mr Whiting’s flat at 7.45pm on July 2 last year. Mr Whiting, 42, was out but when Mr Saunders returned at 9.30pm he telephoned the defendant who answered and allowed the police officer inside. “It was very untidy,” Mr Saunders told the court.

Sarah’s parents, Sara and Michael, sat at the back of the court today as the jury was told how the officers informed Mr Whiting they were investigating the disappearance of an eight-year-old girl from nearby Kingston Gorse on the previous evening. Mr Whiting was asked about his whereabouts but claimed he had not been in the area on the night of Saturday July 1, or the following day. The court heard notes written by Mr Whiting, which said: “5.30 to 6pm arrived at funfair in park in Hove.

“Block of offices overlooking park. Left 8.30pm, drove on top road A27, through Shoreham, Lancing, Worthing and Arundel. Drove through Lyminster to home. Arrived 9.30pm, had bath, went to bed.” Mr Whiting then accounted for his movements on July 2, telling officers: “Got up at 9.30am, stayed in all day, watched motor racing and football. Went out for food at 7.45pm to Oscars Cafe. Got back at 8.45pm. I have been with no one during this period.”

Mr Saunders made a note of Mr Whiting’s appearance, recording that he was 6ft tall, with short dark hair with a centre parting. He noted that Mr Whiting had a front tooth missing and was a smoker. The prosecution claim Mr Whiting abducted Sarah while she was playing in a cornfield near her grandparents’ home, killed her and left her in a shallow grave, where she was discovered 17 days later.

Paedophile back in jail for breach of children ban

A PAEDOPHILE jailed last year after being discovered working at Thorpe Park in breach of two court orders to stay away from children is back behind bars this week after committing a third offence just three days after his release from prison. The National Probation Service said that his return to jail shows that the system governing sex offenders in the community was working. Apart from his stint at the leisure park, persistent sex offender Bruce Hunter, 32, has in the past had a job at a funfair.

This time Hunter — whose criminal record includes the attempted rape of a six-year-old girl — was jailed for 18 months after being spotted throwing a tennis ball with young children. He admitted breaching the sexual offences prevention order in December last year but appeared last week to be sentenced. Ruby Selva, prosecuting, told Guilford Crown Court that the children’s father said Hunter had not been alone with them at any time but played with them during the week. Richard Sharpe, defending, said: “The father said Mr Hunter was throwing the tennis ball around harmlessly.”

But Judge Stuart Sleeman told Hunter it was the second time that within three days of leaving prison he was involved with young children. He said: “The seriousness of this matter is not simply breaking the order that you shouldn’t come into contact with children under 16, but it is the third occasion you have broken it. “The whole purpose of the order is that you don’t have any contact with a child under 16 so there is no possibility of a child being at risk.”

In addition to the 18 months Hunter was jailed for on this occasion, he was ordered to serve first 190 days relating to the earlier offence. However, the 98 days spent on remand for this breach will count towards the sentence. Sentencing Hunter, then of Dene Road, Farnborough, for the theme park breach, Judge John Crocker said: “When you first of all get employment at a funfair then get employment at Thorpe Park I think the reason for the order becomes abundantly clear.

Son of former Black Rod sentenced to 3 1/2 years

13 October 2004

AN ADMIRAL’S son who betrayed his privileged background to embark on a life of crime was jailed for three and a half years yesterday for a £1.2 million investment scam. Roddam Twiss, 64, whose father, Sir Frank Twiss, was also a former House of Lords Black Rod, dazzled victims with “big talk and small print”, name dropping and unrealistic schemes to help the Third World. But the former teacher – first imprisoned nearly 40 years ago for indecently assaulting, stripping and beating young boys – was little more than a conman indulging in “pure flannel”. Southwark Crown Court in London heard he was so successful in concealing the truth, that those he swindled never suspected the bearded businessman had bought his luxury car with their money, or that he ran his so-called “high-yield investment” empire from a squalid former council maisonette. Their cash also paid off his mortgage and funded an array of far from successful business interests. The public school-educated Twiss, from Bethnal Green, London, tried to put all the blame on a former business partner. But earlier this year a jury unanimously convicted him of conspiracy to steal in 1997 and 1998. Appearing for sentence yesterday, Twiss was told by the judge, James Wadsworth, QC, that he had dealt in “wholly unrealistic” promises of large profits. Those who lost their cash may well have been “governed by an avid chase after money that was almost bound to lead to trouble”. While Twiss may also initially have believed he was about to “find that Holy Grail of incredible returns”, he did not hesitate to turn to dishonesty when he realised the whole project was doomed to failure, the judge said. It was plain he felt “no remorse whatsoever” for what he did. The judge, who disqualified Twiss from being a company director for seven years, said he would have to serve a further 18 months if a “realisable assets” confiscation order of just over 89,000 was not paid by the beginning of 2006.

The Birmingham Post (England) > July 28, 2004

Admiral’s son faces jail after tricking investors.

A admiral’s son was behind bars yesterday after betraying trusting investors and pocketing a fortune.

Roddam Twiss, a 64-year-old former schoolteacher, conned victims with ‘big talk’, complicated language and namedropped almost every time he spoke. He also ‘put out long documents with regrettably small print’.

London’s Southwark Crown Court heard his approach to life was that of a ‘confidence trickster’, who indulged in ‘pure flannel’ while concealing the fact his so-called headquarters was a squalid ex-council maisonette.

As a result, clients’ cash never got close to the high-yield investment he had promised.

Instead, public schooleducated Twiss, of Victoria Park Square, Bethnal Green, east London, used their hard-earned money to pay off his mortgage, splash out on a luxury car, fund other business interests and fritter away what was left on general living expenses.

He showed no reaction as the jury of four women and eight men trying the two-month case took just over five hours to unanimously reject his defence of betrayal by a former business partner, and convict him of one count of conspiracy to defraud between November 1 1997 and December 1 the following year.

Adjourning sentence until September 17, Judge James Wadsworth QC rejected a defence application for bail and told Twiss: ‘I warn you now that I take the view that a sentence of imprisonment is as near inevitable as anything can be, and in the circumstances of the case I think you should be remanded in custody until that date.’

The court heard Twiss had worked as a teacher before a couple of brushes with the law involving various offences of deception more than 20 years ago.

Spells as a business consultant and company director followed. Sir Derek Spencer QC, prosecuting, said: ‘He is the son of Sir Admiral Frank Twiss, a former Black Rod in the House of Lords. He moved in the company of the late the Hon Mervyn Greenway, a stockbroker, whose father, Lord Greenway, had been Lord Mayor of London.’

The barrister explained it was the Serious Fraud Office’s case that the defendant was an ‘international fraudster’, who had teamed up with Lebanese-born Emile Coury (62) to defraud investors with empty promises of healthy returns from a ‘high-yield scheme’.

But ‘they never intended to invest the money, and never did,’ said Sir Derek. ‘Indeed, they jointly stole the balance of the money, pounds 1.2 million. Then they used it for their own purposes. Coury had about two thirds and Twiss one third.’

Sir Derek maintained that while Coury was now too unwell to ever be tried there was nevertheless ‘compelling evidence of guilt’ against both men.

They had ‘sought to entice’ investors with talk of large profits and assurances their capital would be safe.

‘His technique was that of the confidence trickster. He boosted investors’ confidence by talking big. He used high-sounding business names and verbose language, which was mostly pure flannel. He put out long documents in regrettably small print. He also name-dropped, making references to a number of titled and influential people,’ said the barrister.

The court heard the fraudster set up something called the Grosvenor Trust, a name he specifically chose ‘with the intention to impress’.

Sir Derek said while it had ‘no connection whatsoever’ with the Duke of Westminster and the Grosvenor Estate, Twiss nevertheless boasted it had a number of distinguished and titled persons as trustees.

The barrister explained that while nothing could have been further from the truth, it still caught the interest of a number of mostly American investors.

But after they had parted with their money and begun wondering why they were not receiving any income, they were met with a variety of lies.

‘When pressure from investors became intolerable,

HL Deb 17 January 1978 vol 388 cc1-5

https://api.parliament.uk/historic-hansard/lords/1978/jan/17/tributes-to-sir-frank-twiss

Admiral Sir Frank Roddam Twiss, of Westbury, Wiltshire, Second Sea Lord 1967-70 and Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod in the House of Lords 1970- 78, left estate valued at pounds 277,363 net. He left pounds 1,000 to St Dunstan’s.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/wills-1433766.html

A former Admiral, Sir Frank Twiss had connections to Royal, military and political elites. In 1960 he was made Naval Secretary to First Sea Lord, Lord Carrington, later Defence Secretary under Edward Heath and Foreign Secretary under Margaret Thatcher. As Second Sea Lord in 1968, Sir Frank ordered a crackdown on the ‘unnatural vice’ of homosexuality in the Navy.

Lord Carrington

From 1983 to 2002, Lord Carrington was President of the Pilgrims Society.[1][2] He relinquished the Chancellorship of the Order of St Michael and St George on 7 June 1994,[3] and was appointed Chancellor of the Order of the Garter on 8 November 1994,[4] a role from which he retired in October 2012.[5]

Carrington attended many Bilderberg conferences (at least as far back as 1978)[6] and chaired them for several years in the late 1990s, being succeeded in 1999 by Étienne Davignon.[7]

Secretary General of NATO

As is suspected for all subsequent Secretaries General of NATO, Carrington had attended meetings of the Bilderberg group before being appointed to lead NATO.

Director of RTZ

Margaret Thatcher‘s government, through negotiations led by Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington, a Director of RTZ for the past five years of Conservative opposition, stated that it has “no international obligation to terminate the uranium contracts“.

While continuation of the contracts defies the 1971 Opinion of the International Court of Justice, for the first time ever, it also dismisses out of hand several specific UN General Assembly and UN Security Council Resolutions on the issue.

One has to ask the British Government through Lord Carrington, how it is able to make such a statement when Britain is currently at the very centre of international negotiations to determine the future legitimate independence of Namibia and the freedom of its people?

The Rossing File awaits the answers to these questions from those responsible.[8]

Lord Lambton scandal linked to child abuse.

a German “hostess operator” Hans Ulrich-Altoff was  tried for pimping in Germany [1] and had claimed to work with Norma and that they had an arrangement to swap girls between English and German outfits [1]. Part of the charges against Hans were that he tried to entice children to pose for erotic pictures, which he denied [1].

Who was the third minister named by Norma Levy? and who the possible fourth?

Was the Heath cabinet stuffed with users of prostitutes?

What were the results of the Report of the Security Commission inquiry?

What happened to Hans Ulrich-Altoff, what were his links to photographing children and his links to English pimping and prostitution?

At the time of Altoffs trial Heath was on a private visit to Bavaria -what was he doing, especially in view of the allegations about him being a DVD agent? [9]

What was the role of Colin Levy?

What was the role of MI5, especially given all the indications of the “elite” child sexual abuse paedosadism scandal that MI5 oversee it for blackmail purposes?

He was a friend of Prince Charles, and Tony and Cherie Blair were dining guests.

Lord Carrington, who as Defence Secretary was Lambton’s boss in 1973, said: “He was exceedingly competent and a very clever man who did his job wonderfully well.”

Secret files released three years ago contained the names of three people but they were deleted.

He was a friend of Prince Charles.
Lambton retired to a Tuscan villa where, the biography notes, he “was visited by numerous politicians and pop stars; it was rumoured that Lambton presided over many dissolute parties”.

Lord Lambton hosted  Prince Charles at his villa.

Visitors to Villa Cetinale, near Siena, included Tony and Cherie Blair, while Prince Charles was reputedly served frozen fish pie by its eccentric owner, the errant Viscount Lambton, who bought the then run-down palace after resigning from the Tory Cabinet in 1973 over his affair with a call-girl.

Well it IS a small world. Lord Lambton was represented by Edward Cazalet during his trial…

Edward Cazalet – son of the Queen Mother’s racehorse trainer Peter Cazalet.  His friends include Sir Simon Hornby, who would later marry his sister Sheran.

Prince Charles is a very close friend of Lambton’s daughter Lucinda (He writes her weekly letters)
“Well, you are a passionate admirer of the Prince of Wales,” muses Worsthorne, seated in the spring garden of the couple’s Berkshire rectory. “Each week, a letter wings its way here from the Prince of Wales.”

Lucy was invited by the Prince of Wales to Highgrove to show her the gardens. He gave her a delicious tea, cucumber sandwiches, that kind of thing.

“At about 7pm, he looked at his watch. Lucy said: “How dare you look at your watch. You asked me to look at your gardens!”

“At about 8pm, in desperation, he took her to her car. She put the key in the ignition but it wouldn’t start. So the Prince of Wales pushed the car himself.”

Lucinda was brought up at Biddick Hall, on the Lambton estate in Durham. Despite her large family and her parents’ famous parties (her mother knew Lady Diana Cooper and Lucian Freud and Nancy Mitford)

She was involved with…John Patten MP

She then moved to North Oxford, “a lumpen Victorian in Rawlinson Road. I sold it for £120,000, and it has now just gone for £3 million.”

Rawlinson Road was where Lucinda lived, on and off, with the former Conservative education minister John Patten, who was an Oxford don at the time. She met him on a train, just as she met her first husband at a bus station. Lambton likes to mix passion with the mundane.

This time the Catherine Wheel met her match. “John had great fire, a lot of whooomph.”

I ask if they threw crockery at each other and she becomes vague. “Mmm, I can’t remember that.”

(Paedophile Graham) Ovenden has curated numerous exhibitions, many featuring his extensive collection of antiquarian photographs. Ovenden and his work have been the subject of broadcasts and films, including ‘Lolita Unclothed’ for the series ‘World without Walls’ (ITV, Channel 4, 1993), ‘Stop The Week’ (BBC Radio 4, 1989), Curious Houses with Lucinda Lambton (BBC-TV, 1987)

Leading artist David Hockney, Ovenden’s former tutor Sir Peter Blake, writer Laurie Lee and the photographer Lucinda Lambton were among those who proclaimed his innocence.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2302849/Graham-Ovenden-How-art-world-turned-blind-eye-paedophile.html

”I’m going to be showing the stupidity of it all,” says Nicky Akehurst, owner of the London gallery putting on the exhibition. ”The art world is tackling this issue head on.” (A petition signed by Sir Hugh Casson, Laurie Lee, Peter Blake and Lucinda Lambton was important in persuading the police to return the photographs.) ”But it needs to be addressed by politicians and the public generally. That’s what I’m trying to do. We’ll show a few of Graham’s nudes, but apart from those it will be what the police took.”

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.

Aitken partner flees Saudi Arabia

 

 

18 Oct 1997 12.04

 

 

Said Ayas, a Saudi business associate of the disgraced former minister, Jonathan Aitken, has escaped from house arrest in Saudi Arabia, according to family and other Middle East sources.

Mr Ayas was arrested on the orders of his boss, the Saudi king’s son, Prince Mohammed bin Fahd, shortly before he was due to give evidence to the High Court in the Aitken libel case against the Guardian and Granada Television in June.

He was accused by the prince, for whom he was a personal assistant and business manager for 20 years, of stealing up to pounds 25 million. He claimed the money had been spent on the prince’s gambling debts.

Prince Mohammed is said to be furious at the way Mr Ayas was spirited out of the country. Both the prince and Mr Ayas were business partners of the MP from 1979 until he joined the government in 1992. The prince was one of the investors in Aitken Hume, the financial services group set up by Mr Aitken and his cousin Tim. He also provided some of the secret money that went into TV-am in the early 1980s.

The exact method by which Mr Ayas escaped from his armed guards is unclear but the sources say that he was helped by members of the ‘Saudi underground’. While under house arrest he was allowed access to a telephone.

Using the prince’s money, it was Mr Ayas who paid for Mr Aitken’s weekend stay at the Paris Ritz in September 1993 – the episode at the centre of the libel trial. During the trial, which collapsed after 10 days, Mr Ayas was expected to be one of the witnesses falsely to claim that the bill was paid by Mr Aitken’s wife.

After the collapse, with Mr Aitken facing legal costs of around about pounds 2 million, it emerged that Mr Ayas had been placed under house arrest in his villa in Dhahran. He spent a week in prison, but was allowed back to the villa after complaining of a heart condition.

Mr Ayas was believed last night to be in the United States, although he still maintains a luxurious apartment near Hyde Park in central London where his wife, Danielle, lives.

Found an interesting little snippet of info in the Operation Jordana report which was set up in 2014 to investigate allegations that a confidential police operation in 1984 targeting rent boys in Piccadilly Circus, was closed down early and evidence supressed to protect VIPs.

Police officer Michael Berry was the “Collator” who managed information and intelligence out of West End Central police station from 1975 -1995. Reflecting back on Operation Playland (2) in 1970s, he believed that Charles Hornby knew Black Rod in Parliament.

Black Rod at that time was Frank Twiss, father of Roddam Twiss, convicted child abuser and fraudster. Roddam Twiss was the subject of a police undercover survailance opperation in 1979 on suspicion of supplying rent boys to VIPs. Hornby-Twiss. An interesting link in the network.

Abbott: isa product of Cambridge University, from which she gained a history degree, and before that, of Harrow County Grammar School, where she shone in the sixth-form drama club, making friends with the broadcaster Clive Anderson, the Washington ambassador, Sir Nigel Sheinwald and Michael Portillo, with whom she starred in Romeo and Juliet, though not in the title roles. Today, she and Mr Portillo appear in the BBC politics show, This Week, where their close rapport has been described by Jonathan Dimbleby as a “love-in.”

 

Ms Abbott has not lacked for Tory grandee soulmates either. She was once so close to Jonathan Aitken, with whom she worked at TV-am long before he was jailed for perjury, that he is godfather to her only child.

She denies any rumour that she and Aitken, who says he is backing her for the Labour leadership, were ever an item. “He was my boss and then, when I became an MP, my [voting] pair.

For more than 35 years, Corbyn, 66, the MP for Islington North since 1983, has been a close friend and political soulmate of Abbott, 61, the MP for the adjoining constituency of Hackney North.


I told Corbyn bad things happened to me 2 months before child sex scandal in his constituency was exposed…so why did he stay silent?

  • Jeremy Corbyn is facing damaging questions over a paedophile scandal
  • The Labour leader attended three meetings and heard evidence of abuse
  • He stands accused of taking no action of the abuse detailed in care homes in the North London borough of Islington 

Jeremy Corbyn is facing damaging questions over claims he failed to respond to repeated warnings about a paedophile scandal in his constituency.

The Labour leader attended three meetings where shocking evidence of abuse in care homes in the North London borough of Islington was detailed, yet stands accused of taking no action.

An investigation by The Mail on Sunday has unearthed new details of the meetings which took place in the early 1990s, around the time that newspapers were beginning to expose the scandal of the widespread rape and sexual abuse of vulnerable children dating back to the 1970s.

In a devastating attack on the Labour leader, whistleblowers accuse him of remaining silent and failing to challenge the Labour-controlled council as it sought to cover up the scandal.

  • A man abused from the age of ten by two council employees told Mr Corbyn in August 1992 – two months before the scandal broke in the media – that ‘very bad things had happened’ to him at a council care home;
  • Five social workers met the Labour MP just weeks later and he promised to raise the matter with Virginia Bottomley, the then Tory Health Secretary – but this weekend she said she had ‘no memory’ of any such approach;
  • Fearing a council cover-up, an investigative journalist who exposed the vile abuse urged Mr Corbyn to speak out, only to be brushed off with a bland statement that the council were doing ‘everything that needs to be done’ – although it later emerged that they were actually destroying vital evidence at the time.

A string of sexual predators infiltrated Islington’s care system from the 1970s and their sickening activities are now regarded as among Britain’s darkest child abuse scandals. Abusers – including paedophiles, pimps and child pornographers – had been employed at each of the council’s 12 children’s homes, but staff who raised concerns were accused of racism and homophobia.

At least 26 workers linked to abuse were allowed to leave their jobs without being investigated, but when the London Evening Standard first revealed the scandal in October 1992, Margaret Hodge, the then-leader of Islington Council and now Labour MP for Barking, described its report as ‘a sensationalist piece of gutter journalism’.

She has subsequently apologised for what she described as the council’s ‘shameful naivety’ in ignoring victims’ voices.

In the aftermath, Mr Corbyn’s only public intervention was a short comment to the Evening Standard, saying: ‘These allegations are extremely serious and must be properly investigated.’

Yet Demetrious Panton, who was one of the many abuse victims in Islington, believes that inaction by local politicians, including Mr Corbyn, may have allowed some of the paedophiles to escape justice.

None of the alleged abusers is thought to have been prosecuted and at least three of the ringleaders, including Bernie Bains who abused Mr Panton, fled abroad.

‘I never heard him [Mr Corbyn] say anything,’ said Mr Panton, 51, now an employment law adviser.

‘I don’t think I fitted into a political paradigm.’

Mr Panton was ten when he went into care in 1978. He lost his mother when he was a baby and his father was unable to cope. Yet instead of finding safety, he was abused at the hands of Bains, who ran the home in Elwood Street in Highbury.

When Mr Panton revealed his plight to a health worker in 1979, Bains was allowed to resign. He later fled to Morocco, where he was jailed for child abuse, and killed himself 18 years ago in Thailand.

Shockingly, Mr Panton was later abused by another staff member.

From the age of 14, Mr Panton wrote letters detailing the abuse to Islington Council. ‘I still have copies,’ he said. ‘I demanded a proper investigation, to save other kids, but they all just told me, in writing, to “move on” with my life.’

Remarkably, he did. After gaining a polytechnic degree, he won a place to study a PhD at the University of Hull but was denied funding by Islington Council. In August 1992, he met Mr Corbyn at his constituency office at the Red Rose Community Centre to ask him to support his funding application. During the meeting, he told the MP that he had been in care in Islington and that ‘very bad things had happened’ to him at a home.

He was behind a desk and there were papers everywhere. It was like being in a room with one of your university lecturers,’ said Mr Panton, who had not even confided in close friends at that point.

He told Mr Corbyn that he felt the council had a ‘duty’ to help him because of his terrible experiences in homes that they ran. Mr Corbyn did write a letter in support for Mr Panton’s funding bid, but does not appear to have acted on Mr Panton’s ‘very bad things’ comment – even after the Evening Standard revealed the abuse scandal weeks later.

‘When the story broke, I never heard him say anything,’ Mr Panton said. ‘The problem that I have is this: for about four years, Islington Council was denying it and Margaret Hodge was calling it gutter journalism. He could have said, “No, actually it’s not because an individual came to my surgery.” ’

Mr Panton believes that, had more pressure been put on the council, some abusers may have been prosecuted. ‘With a more robust response from Islington, helped by a more robust response from the politicians who represented Islington, perhaps those individuals might have been brought to justice, who knows?’

Just weeks after the scandal broke in the media, the Red Rose Community Centre was the venue for another meeting involving Mr Corbyn and a delegation of five social workers, led by Dr Liz Davies. They had identified at least 61 potential abuse victims and, for more than an hour, detailed their evidence. Mr Corbyn assured them that he would talk to Virginia Bottomley, the then Health Secretary.

However, Baroness Bottomley has no recollection of any contact. ‘Having worked in a child guidance unit for ten years and chaired the Lambeth Juvenile Court, I had significant expertise in this field,’ she told The Mail on Sunday. ‘It is inconceivable that I would ignore any such approach. But I have no memory of it whatsoever.’

Dr Davies was surprised when she received no further contact from Mr Corbyn. ‘No letter. No phone call. I never, ever saw him speak about it,’ she later recalled.

In early 1993, Mr Corbyn met Eileen Fairweather, one of the Evening Standard reporters who had revealed the scandal, at the Commons. There, she begged him to speak out publicly and warned that Nicholas Rabet, a former care home manager and suspected child abuser, was still running a children’s activity centre in Sussex.

Rabet, 56, would later kill himself in Thailand while awaiting trial after being charged with molesting 30 underage boys.

‘I went to plead with him,’ Ms Fairweather told The Mail on Sunday. ‘We sat in a corner and I took him through the strength of the evidence. I said, “This is really serious, you’ve got to do something.” He listened very politely. He promised to make enquiries.’

But she heard nothing until she rang him several weeks later. ‘He said, “I have made some enquiries and I have been reassured that everything that needs to be done is being done”,’ she recalled.

It emerged later, however, that crucial documents were being destroyed by Islington Council at that very time.

Last night, a lawyer who acts for abuse victims urged Mr Corbyn to make his position clear. ‘His response to allegations of abuse in Islington raises very serious questions,’ said Richard Scorer, from law firm Slater and Gordon. ‘If he wants to command confidence on these issues, he needs to acknowledge if and when mistakes were made.’

Islington Council has agreed a compensation package of £2.1 million for victims of the abuse scandal and said that it provides personal and psychological support to those affected.

Its current leader, Richard Watts, said: ‘We’re very sorry for Islington Council’s past failure to protect vulnerable children in its care. The council today is a very different place, and protecting children from harm is our top priority.’

Last night a Labour spokesman said: ‘The claim that Jeremy Corbyn failed to speak out about child sexual abuse is false.

‘In October 1992 he publicly demanded a full investigation into abuse of children in care in Islington. He is on the record describing the allegations as “extremely serious” and demanding they be ‘“properly investigated.” ’

A source insisted that Mr Corbyn had raised allegations with Islington Council’s director of social services at the time, and believes he raised Dr Davies’s issues with Baroness Bottomley.

Children were being abused on an industrial scale on Corbyn’s doorstep… yet he did nothing 

Much of Corbyn’s Islington North constituency was made up of white English and Irish workers alongside immigrants. Most inhabited either unrepaired private houses or dilapidated council estates. They suffered bad schools, stretched health services and one of the most corrupt Labour councils in the country.

But Corbyn never issued press releases about local issues. His frequent publicity flyers were about Palestine, Ireland, the Western Sahara or Nicaragua. He seemed oblivious to Islington being ranked as London’s worst borough for social services, housing, education and street maintenance.

Under Margaret Hodge, the council leader between 1982 and 1992, the People’s Republic of Islington boasted a red flag fluttering above the town hall and a bust of Lenin inside.

Despite levying London’s highest council tax, nearly half of its residents lived in 35,000 council houses plagued by crime, drugs, damp and dilapidation because Islington’s unionised labour force refused to undertake repairs.

Yet while Hodge regularly received complaints from Chris Smith, the Labour MP for Islington South, she never heard from Corbyn. Preoccupied by the needs of immigrants and foreign conflicts, he appeared uninterested in the many woes of his constituents.

Most shamefully, he didn’t seem to care about the systematic sexual abuse of vulnerable children in Islington’s residential homes, all of which were staffed by council employees, members of his old union, NUPE.

Horrifying evidence of sex orgies run from a ‘hot house’ on Islington’s Elthorne estate was exposed.

Children had been rented out from a brothel to paedophiles.

Among the many victims was Vivian Loki, a 17-year-old girl whose decomposed body was discovered on the estate six months after her murder by a paedophile.

Further north, at Gisburne House, another Islington home, children were being abused on an industrial scale. ‘All this,’ Islington social worker Liz Davies discovered, ‘was happening on Corbyn’s doorstep. He knew all about it because it was raised by [Conservative MP] Geoffrey Dickens in the Commons’.

In October 1992, five Islington council social workers, led by Liz Davies, confronted Corbyn in his office at the Red Rose Community Centre.

By then, dozens of drugged, hungry and distressed young people of both sexes living in 12 council homes were being routinely raped by council employees.

Paedophile gangs were rampant across the borough, and at least 30 employees who were suspected of crimes had been allowed to quietly resign.

Peter Righton, founder of the pro-paedophile group the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), had been given authority by the Home Office to brief council social workers to place vulnerable children with known sex offenders. Having set out this appalling scenario, the social workers told Corbyn that their complaints to Margaret Hodge had been ignored.

After London’s Evening Standard newspaper published a detailed exposé of Islington’s employment of known paedophiles, and the officials’ shredding of documents to cover up the crimes, the council accused the paper of ‘gutter journalism’.

The council employees’ meeting with Corbyn lasted 90 minutes, during which he pronounced

‘I’ve heard similar issues from other constituents,’ and then said little else.

As usual when confronted with complicated or unpalatable facts, he retreated into his shell, mumbling and smiling but offering no meaningful replies.

At the end, he promised to speak to Virginia Bottomley, the Health Minister, but she does not recall any such conversation having taken place.

‘We heard nothing more from Corbyn,’ Liz Davies recalled.

‘We don’t know whether he did anything to help us.’

Jeremy Corbyn‏ @jeremycorbyn

Wonderful picture of Diane Abbott, Paul Boateng, Bernie Grant & Keith Vaz. Four MPs who have inspired thousands.

Abbott was a press officer at the Greater London Council under Ken Livingstone from 1985 to 1986 and Head of Press and Public Relations at Lambeth Council from 1986 to 1987.[8]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Abbott

Abbott will be well aware of all the allegations against Portillo.

…the persistent rumors about NSPCC’s Wanless’ close friend and confidant Michael Portillo, now like Savile, a BBC TV personality, being allegedly involved in a Westminster sex scandal himself. Rumors circulated in 1994 that Portillo and another Tory Secretary of State, Peter Lilley, had got sexually involved with Britain’s first openly gay footballer, Justin Fashanu.

Diane Abbott – press officer to Linda Bellos, leader of Lambeth Council

Labour Research Department, 1987

n mid-1986, three of Lambeth’s most senior officials held a secret disciplinary hearing, and decided to leave him in post. And when Carroll asked if he could turn Angell Road into a centre to provide therapy for victims of child abuse, Lambeth agreed. The police even sought advice from him when they were investigating alleged child abuse in another home, South Vale.

Janet Boateng: Former chair of Lambeth social services committee

Janet Boateng’s name never comes up in articles about the paedophile ring that operated in Lambeth Council-run children’s homes between 1974 and 1994.

But maybe it should, because she was chair of Lambeth Council’s social services committee, who had overall responsibility for the running of children’s homes, and she personally unveiled the ‘new child care strategy’ at a time when Lambeth children’s homes were infested with paedophiles.

Stephen Milligan who  was a Tory MP and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the notorious Tory cabinet  minister  Jonathan Aitken. Stephen Milligan the PPS  who knew too mutch.   On 7th February 1994, he was reported to have been found tied to a chair with a plastic bag over his head and a satsuma stuffed into his mouth. The usual embarrassment surrounding these cases seem to have prevented the press from carrying out an in-depth investigation into various discrepancies in the case. Aitken, was known to have an particular interest in Sado-Masochistic sex – Milligan wasn’t. He was a normal guy engaged at the time to a woman who is now a Tory MP. More relevant perhaps is Aitken’s well-documented links to intelligence agencies and his role in shadowy arms deals that were conducted in the Ritz hotel in Paris in 1993.At this time Aitken was the head of an International Intelligence Service called Le Cercle  and Milligan was taken out in this bizarre way perhaps as a warning to Aitken  or perhaps  to silence him.  Aitken quickly toppled from his high perch shortly after Milligans Death.

Stephen Crabb quits Cabinet job days after ‘sexting’ scandal

14 July 2016

*Stephen Crabb* – A glance at the Register of Interests shows trips to various exotic destinations being paid for by a whole host of organisations, including Christian Aid, Oxfam Novib, International Alert, ActionAid and Christian Solidarity Worldwide (president Jonathan Aitken, former jailbird and disgraced ex-Tory minister) . In 2005 on another visit to India, we read that flights were paid for by Dr Liam Fox’s office with a donation from a man described as a Middlesex businessman called Stanley Fink

Stanley Fink would appear to be the same Stanley Fink who is co-treasurer of the Conservative Party, a hedge fund manager and pal of Lord Levy. Lord Levy, it will be remembered, is Tony Blair’s friend who was interviewed by the police as part of the Cash for Honours scandal. What a small world.

(Crabb)…fretting about the far-flung Christians of Orissa and Burma, and championing Israeli security. In the recent scandal involving Dr Liam Fox, we learned of an agenda to strengthen ties with the American Right and Israel, with a motley mix of arms dealers, Tea Party lunatics and Christian fundamentalists trying to shape government policy here

The interest in the fate of Christians in far-flung places, and Mr Crabb’s unswerving support for Israel may well be explained by his membership of CARE (Christian Action Research and Education)

Jonathan Aitken and Jonathan King in Commons

Rev David Salt seems to be a Peter Bottomley type figure, popping up whenever he is needed. He officiated at the Hungerford massacre service and knew the perpetrator.

Rev David Salt appears to have had very strong ties to the military, serving as chaplain.

David Salt, his wife and sister Mavis were missionaries serving in Melanesia. On her return to England, Mavis became a member of the CoE General Synod. The latter years of her life were spent in Sherborne, Dorset. Yes, that Sherborne!

Sherborne will probably ring a bell or three: it is the home of convicted paedophile Charles Napier, half-brother of John Whittingdale MP. What a surprise to discover that Peter Hayman was married to Charles Napier’s cousin!

The Hungerford years:

Paedophile Sir Peter Hayman and Pierre Trudeau

Salt of the Earth: Interesting that Rev Salt, a man who rushed to the defence of the massive paedophile Sir Peter Hayman, should write a thesis on ‘the abuse of priestly ministry’, with special reference to the Ysabel diocese.

Hungerford massacre
The links between Rev David Salt and Sir Peter Hayman have piqued my interest in the Hungerford massacre and some interesting ‘coincidences’
In 1928, Inglewood was purchased by the Catholic De La Salle brothers to be used as a monks’ college. Nearly 50 years later it was transformed into a luxury health hydro, and now part of this beautiful building holds an equally luxurious spa.
In 1971, the de la Salle brothers were forced to sell Inglewood. The sale was completed in the summer of 1972 to Mr Nicolian, who originally planned to set up a nursing home. That soon changed, and a consortium of businessmen transformed it into Inglewood Health Hydro.
In 1981 a consortium headed by Jonathan Aitken bought Inglewood Health Hydro, and it changed hands again in 1998 when it was taken over by Grosvenor Spas, a national chain of health clubs. A further change came in October 2001 when it was bought by Purdew Health Farm Group.

Shortly before the massacre, Michael Ryan’s mother Dorothy had just been employed by a stylish health farm just outside Hungerford: Inglewood Health Hydro

The De La Salle Brothers were renowned for their cruel regime and sexual abuse was commonplace. Inglewood seems to have been no exception:

Later, under the leadership of the Belmarsh inmate (better know as Tory cabinet minister Jonathan Aitken), Inglewood had an equally colourful history: staff members were pressurised to bear false witness in his libel case, and Aitken worked his way through a string of women.

The Purdews, the new owners better known for Henley Grange, had close ties to a motley bunch including: Tony Blair, a war criminal Keith Vaz, rent boy lover and washing machine salesman Jimmy Savile, Britain’s most proliferous paedophile.

Jailbird Jonathan Aitken was closely linked to RELEASE. He is even mentioned in connection with David Offenbach, lawyer for Lennie Smith who assisted Sidney Cooke in the rape and murder of Jason Swift.

Essex Police probe uncovers link between Shoebury ‘sex ring’ and paedophile gang behind Jason Swift killing

POLICE have uncovered a link between the ’Shoebury Sex Ring’ and the paedophile gang which killed schoolboy Jason Swift in the 1980s.

A witness alerted police to the link without even realising it.

Last month, sex crime officers in Rayleigh concluded months of interviews with the man, who was contacted last year after police found his name on a 1990 list of boys linked to the Shoebury ring.

The man’s allegations are corroborated on many key details by a stack of paperwork from a 1989/90 investigation into the ring, the contents of which have never been placed in the public domain.

During his interviews, the man told officers that one of the Shoebury ringleaders often referred to a mystery man called ’Lennie Smith’.

Unbeknownst to the witness, Smith was one of the paedophile gang known as the Dirty Dozen, whose members raped and killed three children – Jason Swift, Mark Tildesley and Barry Lewis.

Smith was linked to all three killings but never prosecuted because in each case all the witnesses against him were fellow paedophiles, deemed unreliable by the CPS.

SECRET FILES REVEALED: Children abused by Southend paedophile ring were transported to Basildon, Havering and Tower Hamlets – and claimed their abusers included police officers

CHILDREN abused by a Southend paedophile ring in the 1980s were also transported to addresses in Basildon, Havering and Tower Hamlets, according to documents seen by the Yellow Advertiser.

The papers detail evidence given to an investigator by a whistleblowing ex-social worker in 2000.

The whistleblower claimed children’s services in Southend had been ’in chaos’ when the ring was investigated and professionals struggled to get authorities to take the allegations seriously.

Several local charities tasked with providing therapy to the boys abused by the ring started receiving disclosures about men who had abused them, the documents said.

The charities pooled resources to ’collate information on paedophiles, given by the children to those working directly with them’.

Soon, the files said, ’information was coming out about people working in the statutory agencies’ – including social workers and police officers.

But the authorities did not support the charities and failed to follow up on their information, the source claimed.

The whistleblower told the investigator they then received ’threats’ – although they did not say where from – ’that if [their charity] did not shut up about child sex abuse, its grant would be removed’.

The claims are contained in correspondence and minutes documenting the whistleblower’s evidence to Helen Kenward, a child protection specialist hired by Essex Council in the late 1990s to investigate historic abuse allegations linked to County Hall.

The claims are corroborated by contemporaneous documents, written by representatives of the charities involved and seen by the YA.

In March, Essex Council confirmed the existence of the ’Kenward Report’ after the YA learned it had been shared with police investigating the 1980s ’Shoebury Sex Ring’.

Two men were prosecuted and described in court as the ’leaders’ of the Shoebury ring in 1990, but in recent years a YA campaign has forced police to reopen the case, after whistleblowers questioned why none of the other alleged abusers identified by the victims were brought to justice.

Documents reveal the Shoebury whistleblower told Kenward they had formed the opinion that children’s services in Southend were ’in chaos’.

The informant was a former Essex Council social worker but at the time of the Shoebury investigation, in 1989, worked for a charity commissioned by the council to counsel child victims.

A record of their evidence to Kenward stated: “The social workers were demoralised and there were staff employed in Southend who otherwise would probably not have got a job in other areas, due to the difficulty in recruiting staff. There was a high level of anxiety about child sex abuse not being investigated.”

The source told Kenward that during the investigation, their charity received ’lots of’ phone calls with tip-offs about alleged abuse, some connected to the ring and others not.

Many of the calls came from schools and one came from a magistrate, who “alleged that her daughter had been sexually assaulted in the park by a police officer and other police officers had not investigated.”

Kenward’s source is amongst numerous former child protection workers who have spoken to Essex Police as part of its reinvestigation of the Shoebury ring.

Essex Council has refused to release the Kenward Report, claiming there is ’no public interest’ in doing so, and has also refused to answer basic questions about its contents.

Was the Shoebury sex ring ‘covered up’? Secret documents detail ‘corruption, beatings, threats and missing evidence’.

In December 1989, the charities started meeting to share intelligence gathered from the children. They were assigned a liaison police officer to pass all information on to.

Immediately, the charities realised the ring was far bigger than just King and Tanner. There had been an early indication of this when police raided King’s flat and found a book full of names and addresses in London, with references to ‘tykes’.

A boy had identified three Southend addresses where he was taken by King. He said he was also taken to East London, where he was drugged and sexually abused for a ‘porn video’.

The Children’s Society met with Shoebury county councillor David Cotgrove. According to minutes the YA has seen of that meeting, Cllr Cotgrove said the ring was ‘not new’ and there were ‘high up people involved’.

By January 1990, the group had been told of possible links to Canvey, Thurrock, Havering and Basildon. More boys now reported being drugged and photographed. Care homes were also named.

But children’s home staff weren’t the only state employees implicated.

Boys also named a police officer who frequented King’s flat, as well as a neighbouring flat occupied by a vulnerable drug addict, where men were known to sleep with underage girls. Allegations against him were listed in minutes as, ‘photographs, girls, drugs, blackmail’.

A boy told the charities the officer would, “target families, manufacture charges against any person, go round the house and have sex with the mums.”

The boy reported walking in on the officer having sex with a school friend’s mother.

One of the 14 victims confided in the charity workers that a friend of his had started ‘digging about’ regarding the ring and was ‘warned off by two CID’, who told him he was ‘out of his league’ and gave him a black eye.

By February, the group was receiving tip-offs from other Essex child protection workers who had heard of their work. Some made allegations about impropriety linked to Social Services.

The group continued to feed their intelligence to their liaison officer, but then he was suddenly replaced without any warning or explanation. His replacement, a whistleblower testified in 2000, “was always drunk.”

In March 1990, relations between the police and the charity workers soured dramatically.

On March 6, two of the workers bumped into their liaison officer and his colleague in the Cricketers pub, Southend.

“By the way,” the officer said, a bit worse for wear, “I’ve been asked by my boss to do a hatchet job on you lot.”

The incident was detailed in a memo sent to one of the charity’s head offices days later, which said the officer had then described one worker’s vehicle and day to day movements in meticulous detail, implying they were under surveillance.

Later that week, the charities were interrogated by Social Services as to why they kept meeting up. The Children’s Society was told Social Services would no longer be using the report it had commissioned from the charity and would write its own instead.

The group, feeling ‘attacked’ and ‘under pressure’, sent a joint memo to their head offices, saying they had received sensitive information they no longer trusted police to investigate. They became ‘worried’ about being ‘fitted up’.

A meeting was held in early April between the workers and the NSPCC’s legal department. Aided by a lawyer, they drew up a report listing ‘known facts’ and the authorities’ response.

It said police were told of boys willing to give information about paedophile activity in a Shoebury hotel and at addresses in Havering, Stratford and Southend – but had ‘shown no interest’ in speaking to them. ‘No perceivable action’ had been taken over detailed allegations against police or Social Services staff either.

The diary full of London addresses, seized from King’s flat, went ‘missing’ from police custody. In April, King and Tanner struck a plea bargain. Having initially faced charges with a maximum penalty of life in prison, they were sentenced to four and three years, respectively. The judge, incredibly, accepted the paedophiles’ argument that the boys – as young as 10 – had been the true instigators of the sexual activity.

In May 1990, the charities were told ‘no action’ would be taken over the officer named by the boys. Multi-agency meetings to discuss after-care for the victims continued into 1991, but nobody else was ever prosecuted for their abuse.

In 2016, hundreds of pages of original documents detailing the above events were handed to police. In 2017, the force said its review found ‘no evidence of any corruption’.

Essex Council refuses to publish report into historic sex abuse allegations against child protection workers

22 March 2018

ESSEX Council has refused to release a report into allegations that some of its former child protection workers sexually abused children in their care.

County Hall confirmed that the document – known as the ’Kenward Report’ – existed, but refused to let the Yellow Advertiser see a copy, saying there was ’no public interest in disclosing the information’.

The YA requested the report under the Freedom of Information Act after learning it had been shown to detectives running Operation SANDS – a reinvestigation of an almost 30-year-old ’child sex ring’ case in Shoeburyness.

In the year 2000, Essex Council contracted independent child protection expert Helen Kenward to investigate historic allegations of abuse within its children’s departments.

Mrs Kenward is also known for her investigation into alleged child abuse in the ’Children’s Homes in Lambeth Enquiry’ (CHILE) in 2003, and her investigation into the death of two-year-old Ainlee Labonte for the Newham Area Child Protection Committee in 2002.

The YA has seen some correspondence connected to the Kenward Report, from the year 2000, which stated that Essex Council had conducted more than 20 investigations into allegations of abuse by Social Services staff in the the last ’few years’.

The correspondence showed one whistleblowing former Essex Council employee, who was interviewed for the Kenward Report, reported concerns and allegations about 18 different child protection professionals, including social workers and police officers.

Essex Police was tipped off that the report existed by whistleblowers, whose work with the YA sparked Operation SANDS two years ago.

The whistleblowers – all former child protection workers – came forward in 2015, after the YA uncovered and reported on secretive compensation payments authorised by Essex Council for ’alleged abuse’ in its children’s departments in the 1970s and 1990s.

They approached the YA to detail ’grave concerns’ about how abuse cases in Essex had been handled by the authorities during the 1980s and 1990s.

In particular, each had concerns about the way in which several agencies had dealt with a paedophile ring, which abused ’dozens’ of children in and around Shoeburyness.

Two men were prosecuted and jailed but documents from the time showed many of the children had reported being abused by more perpetrators, who appeared not to have been pursued.

Police only used a handful of boys’ evidence as ’specimen cases’ in the two men’s prosecution. As other complainants were not involved in the criminal case, the whistleblowers said, Social Services did not recognise them as victims. As a result, they were not case-conferenced and given the appropriate support.

Contemporaneous documents showed several of the children went on to self-harm, attempt suicide, fall into drug addiction, become child prostitutes or even abuse children themselves.

Whistleblowers added that some had since been jailed for serious criminal offences whilst others had died from suicides and drug overdoses.

In late 2015, the YA introduced the whistleblowers to then Essex Police Commissioner Nick Alston, who found them ’eminently credible’ and introduced them to Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh.

In March 2016, as a direct result of the YA’s work, Essex Police announced Operation SANDS.

Last October the YA revealed that despite whistleblowers supplying Essex Police with contemporaneous paperwork detailing alleged police corruption, and despite three new victims coming forward, the force had decided to close the investigation down.

But the YA rescued the case at the last minute by supplying detectives with a dossier of new evidence.

Operation SANDS remains ongoing as police investigate information provided by a fourth victim, who came forward late last year with specific, detailed allegations about a number of men and women in Southend, Castle Point, Basildon and other areas.

The man was known to investigative agencies at the time of the original investigation, in 1990, as a suspected victim – but was not interviewed by police and did not form part of the prosecution case.

As part of Operation SANDS, Essex Police has been allowed to view the ’Kenward Report’, but for now it remains off-limits to Essex taxpayers.

Essex Council has refused to release it, claiming it would ’prejudice the effective conduct of public affairs’ by dissuading people from contributing to future investigations.

It also claimed that the report contained personal data and information which had been provided in confidence.

It described the YA’s request to see the report as ’vexatious’, claiming it would take ’many hundreds of hours’ to redact or remove all the personal or confidential information.

The YA has submitted a new Freedom of Information request seeking some statistical data from the report, making clear that it does not wish to receive any personal or confidential information.

The council is required by law to answer within 20 working days.

THE YELLOW Advertiser has been instrumental in reopening a historic child sex abuse inquiry for a second time, by delivering a dossier of fresh evidence to Essex Police.

Detectives called the YA to police headquarters in Chelmsford last week, to announced the end of Operation SANDS.

But when it arrived for the briefing, the YA handed over a document containing detailed allegations about more than 10 men and women based in and around Southend in the 1980s.

The detailed allegations were made by a man who said he was abused over a years-long period as a teenager. It was compiled and handed to police with his consent. In it, he named multiple childhood friends he believed were also victims.

Expert child protection officer Detective Superintendent Tracey Harman confirmed the man was known to police as a suspected victim and said his information would be followed up.

The force has since confirmed that it is pursuing ’multiple new main lines of inquiry’ based on the document.

Essex Police announced in spring 2016 that it was reviewing an almost 30-year-old investigation into child abuse in and around Shoeburyness.

Dubbed Operation SANDS, the review was launched in direct response to an 18-month YA investigation.

The investigation began in late 2014, with the YA raising questions over 10 secret compensation payments authorised by Essex Council for ’alleged abuse’ in the 1970s and 1990s.

It resulted in four whistleblowers – all child protection workers in the Southend area during the 1980s and 1990s – raising concerns with the YA over a ’sex ring’ they felt had not been properly investigated.

Two men were convicted of child sex charges, relating to six victims, after the original Essex Police investigation in 1990.

But the whistleblowers said they knew other men had abused the same children, and possibly dozens more, yet appeared not to have been pursued.

Nick Alston, then the county’s police commissioner, described the whistleblowers as ’eminently credible’. He and Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh ordered the creation of Operation SANDS.

Det Supt Harman said the review found a number of files connected to the original investigation had been destroyed, in line with the force’s retention policy.

In the records which did remain, some victims did make reference to other men, said Det Supt Harman, but they did not identify them in enough detail for police to trace them.

But the complainant who spoke with the YA said he had named several other abusers, by either their full names or their first names and places of work, to police at the time. He named them again in the document handed to Det Supt Harman by the YA last week.

Det Supt Harman said three fresh complainants had come forward after Operation SANDS was announced, each making allegations about one man, now in his 80s, who was arrested and interviewed.

She said: “However, based on all the information gathered and witnesses spoken to, there was insufficient evidence to charge in this instance. If anyone has further evidence in connection with this or any other investigation, I need them to come forward to us.”

Det Supt Harman said that in addition to prompting complainants to come forward to Operation SANDS, the YA’s reporting on historic allegations had emboldened victims to come forward in other, unrelated cases.

Anyone with information about abuse in and around Shoeburyness in the 1980s and 1990s was asked to call Essex Police on 101. The officer leading Operation SANDS is DC Laura Williams.

I worked as a senior social worker in the child protection team in Chelmsford Essex in the late 1990s. This does not surprise me in the slightest. I was suspended and disciplined when I started to uncover a group of paedophiles in Southminster near Southend. I cannot prove this but I am convinced that powerful people were involved including senior people at Essex County council and social services.

Shoebury ‘paedophile ring’ failures must be independently investigated, says outgoing Essex Police commissioner

May 2016

Essex Police is currently reviewing officers’ conduct in a child abuse investigation in Shoeburyness in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Mr Alston and Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh announced in March that the force was reviewing an investigation which resulted in the conviction and imprisonment of two paedophiles in 1990, for abusing adolescent boys in Shoeburyness.

The review was launched after three whistleblowers claimed victims had reported abuse by far more than just two men, but nobody else appeared to have been pursued.

They also claimed some victims were never interviewed by police and most who were still never received appropriate after-care such as counselling. Some have since reportedly committed suicide, died of drug overdoses, been sent to prison and, in one case, gone on to abuse children.

A fourth whistleblower, tracked down by the YA and now cooperating with the review, echoed the original claims.

Two of the whistleblowers, who worked at a Southend young offenders charity and received abuse disclosures from boys on their books, said they feared cops had failed to take the allegations seriously because they took a dim view of the complainants.

Mr Alston described the allegations as ‘chilling’, telling the YA: “It’s an overwhelmingly credible scenario. The circumstantial evidence is apparently strong.”

http://www.yellowad.co.uk/article.cfm?id=112290&headline=EXCLUSIVE:%20Shoebury%20%27paedophile%20ring%27%20failures%20must%20be%20independently%20investigated,%20says%20outgoing%20Essex%20Police%20commissioner&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2016

In 1990 two local charities – the Rainer Foundation and the Children’s Society – published a report based on assessments of 25 young boys known to have visited the flat of convicted paedophile Dennis King in Shoebury, Essex. Of those 25 boys referred to in the charity report, only a handful were interviewed by Essex Police.

The report suggested, however, that there could be up to 80 victims aged as young as 11 years old.

Of those boys interviewed by the police only two went to court, were formally case conferenced, and received appropriate after-care.

Only two men were convicted, Brian Tanner, then 57, was sentenced to 3 years and Denis King who received 4 years unimprisonment.

Dennis King, 55 years old at the time of his 1990 conviction, had been convicted for sexual offences against boys at least twice before 1990 and has been convicted at least twice subsequent to the 1990 Shoebury conviction – More details HERE

Many of those that have disclosed are clear that more men were involved in the child abuse than just Dennis King and Brian Tanner.

Since then, multiple boys who disclosed abuse to the local charities have died of drug overdoses, committed suicide, or gone to prison.

Dennis King, then aged 55 and living in Cunningham Close, Shoebury, received a four-year jail term in 1990 after admitting four counts of gross indecency and three counts of attempted buggery.
He was convicted with Brian Tanner, then 57 and living in Beedell Avenue, Westcliff, who got three years for three counts of gross indecency and three counts of attempted buggery.
Tanner has since died and King no longer lives in Essex.
Both men were jailed for their part in what Essex Council described in official papers as a ’sex ring’ targeting ’adolescent boys’.
Essex Police last month announced a review of its investigation into the King and Tanner case, after three whistleblowers alleged a catalogue of failings.
A fourth whistleblower, tracked down by the YA, has now agreed to cooperate with the review.
The YA has now obtained court records showing King was jailed for seven years in 1966 for sexually abusing two boys he met in a public toilet on Southend seafront.
An appeal document states: “According to their evidence, they were hanging around a public lavatory on the front and they got into a conversation with the appellant, who asked them if they wanted to play about with him and offered them 10 shillings each.
“According to them, he took each one of them in turn into a cubicle inside the lavatory where certain of these offences were committed.
“According to them, an arrangement was then made for the appellant to meet them at the same place at about 10.30 that evening and go back to his flat.
“They did meet that evening. The appellant took them back to his flat. One of them slept on the floor and one of them in the bed with him, and it was there that the other offences were committed.”
King denied the allegations but was convicted of two counts of attempting to procure acts of gross indecency, three counts of indecent assault and one count of attempted buggery.
The appeal record shows that before his 1966 trial, King already had several prior convictions for child sex offences.
The record states: “This appellant of 31 has already been sent to prison for six months for attempting to procure gross indecency with a youth of 15, and two offences were then taken into consideration, one of which was with a boy of nine.
“He has been fined for importuning immoral purposes and finally, in September 1964, he was given 12 months imprisonment for attempting to procure gross indecency.”

This former charity boss whistleblower explains how one of the young boys turned to recruiting for the gang so that he wouldn’t keep getting abused himself.

EXCLUSIVE: Former charity boss recalls ‘shock’ of uncovering Shoebury ‘paedophile ring’

Wednesday, 20 April 2016 By Charles Thomson in Crime
Chris Hickey A FORMER charity boss has spoken about how he learned a ‘paedophile ring’ was operating in Shoebury in the late 1980s.
Chris Hickey – former manager of the Rainer Foundation, a young offenders’ charity in Weston Road, Southend – is the fourth whistleblower to voice concerns over Essex Police’s investigation into the abuse of dozens of boys.
Mr Hickey, now a HR consultant, is believed to have received the first abuse disclosure from one of the victims.
He said: “The first time I had any real sense that something really strange was going on, I was working with this young lad. He slowly started to burn himself with a cigarette, rather than tell me what was going on.”
Mr Hickey was tracked down by the Yellow Advertiser and is now cooperating with an Essex Police review, announced last month, into whether the case was properly investigated.
Two men were jailed in 1990 but whistleblowers say the victims reported abuse by more paedophiles who were not prosecuted. They also claim police failed to interview multiple victims and that most of those who were interviewed never received appropriate after-care.
Mr Hickey co-authored a 1990 report criticising the ‘patchy’ response by local agencies, which said victims had already suffered problems including self-harming, displaying ‘abusive behaviour’ towards younger children and ‘graduating into the local rent boy scene’.
Recounting the moment the first boy – a ‘cheeky chappy’ and ‘prolific car thief’ – disclosed his abuse, Mr Hickey said: “It was late afternoon. He was getting less and less responsive. The silences were getting longer and longer. I knew I just had to sit there.
“The room was going dark and I wouldn’t even get up to turn the light on because I knew if I moved the spell would be broken – and if he was going to say something, he was going to say it now.
“I’d been working with him for well over a year and I knew there was something going on. I waited and waited and I watched him burn himself with a cigarette – and then he told me.”
Mr Hickey said the disclosure left him ‘shellshocked’. In the coming weeks the boy revealed he had become a ‘recruiter’ for the paedophiles to stop his own abuse. Soon afterwards, more boys began coming forward to local charities, including 12 to 15 who disclosed to Rainer.
Mr Hickey said: “It was terrible when you realised what had happened. We had no idea this was going on and then it all unfolded before our eyes. It is an experience seared into my memory.”

Jonathan Aitken was a director of NACRO along with Monday Club members Peter Bottomley and Sir Charles Irving. Both also appeared on the list of Elm Guest House patrons.

The Bottomleys (Virginia and Peter Bottomley) and Sir Charles Irving shared a mutual friend: Clive Froggatt, the man at the centre of Thatcher’s NHS privatisation. Froggatt had big problems: an addiction to cocaine. On arrest, he claimed the drugs seized were for Charles Irving.

Indeed, NACRO’s directors reveal many interesting associations, including Lord Carlile, the go-to man to protect the Establishment against abuse claims, Lord Peerages-for-Sex Lester and Paul Chapple Whitehouse, founder of Starehe.

But let’s return to Inglewood, where the gunman’s mother Dorothy Ryan worked: A World in Action documentary aptly entitled Jonathan of Arabia accused Aitken of pimping for Saudi friends at a health farm. Later, the Purdews acquired Inglewood from agents of a Saudi prince!

Aitken’s contacts to Saudi businessmen, particularly those in the arms trade and with strong links to the Saudi prince, are manifold. These include the Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi. Now where have I heard that name before?

Aitken’s Saudi affiliations were not just related to business; they were also of an amorous nature: DNA tests in 1999 revealed that Aitken’s daughter Petrina was the issue of a dalliance with Soraya Khashoggi, lowly-born Leicester lass and wife of Adnan.

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”.

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.

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.

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….

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

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.

Rachel Hodgkin – Social Care Online

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Sir Alan Parker, pictured here with Samantha Cameron, is a well-connected PR mogul

Sir Alan Parker, pictured here with Samantha Cameron, is a well-connected PR mogul

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]

Was owner of Elm Guest House who kept list of secret VIP visitors murdered? Newly discovered files…

Was owner of paedophile palace who kept list of secret VIP visitors murdered?

11 NOV 2017

The Elm Guest House owner was found dead in 1990 but newly released files have led people to question if she committed suicide, and a call for a fresh inquest

The discovery of files that police said were destroyed has cast fresh doubts on the suicide ­verdict at the heart of the Westminster VIP paedo scandal.

Campaigners are demanding a review of the coroner’s verdict into the death of Carole Kasir and a new inquest.

Mrs Kasir ran the notorious paedophile brothel Elm Guest House in South West London. She may have kept a dossier of the perverted visitors’ names and photos from the early 80s.

The newly found files reveal her GP’s surprise at her apparent suicide. They also say syringes and vials found next to her body had not been analysed.

One source believes a fresh probe may expose a cover-up and reveal that Mrs Kasir, 47, who was found dead in her bed in 1990, had been murdered.

The Kasir files were released to ­campaigners under freedom of ­information rules after London’s Met Police said they had been destroyed.

Andrew Bridgen, Tory MP for North West Leicestershire, is among those ­calling for ­another inquest.

He said: “There is a case for a fresh investigation into the anomalies raised by these documents. One is that her GP questioned whether she had committed suicide but there are also other anomalies.”

Among the prominent people said to have visited the guest house and engaged in sex – some with consenting adults and some with children – were a government minister, a high-ranking policeman, a member of the Royal Household, an MI5 officer, traitor Anthony Blunt and Sir Peter Morrison, the Parliamentary Private Secretary to Margaret Thatcher.

A police investigation in 2015 failed to prove claims Mrs Kasir had kept a list and picture of the visitors.

A source close to the original ­investigation said: “If there’s a fresh look at Carole’s death and a full investigation into what exactly was going on at the time then there’s a good chance these things could turn up. If that happens it will blow the lid off any cover-up and it could reveal that she was murdered.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt this place is at the centre of things. The fact these files were found after the Met said they didn’t exist shows there is ­information out there that we could get.”

The papers show diabetic Mrs Kasir, convicted in 1983 for possessing obscene videos and keeping a disorderly house, tried to kill herself previously and she was found with an overdose of insulin.

Pathologist Richard Shepherd said her death was “not due to natural causes” noting her profound low blood sugar consistent with excessive injected insulin. One abnormality raised in the files is a decision by the poison unit at New Cross Hospital in London not to analyse the syringes and vials found next to her body to see if they were ­connected to her death or to check her stomach contents. Experts say this should have been normal practice in a toxicology report.

Colin Peters, a Foreign Office barrister, was also named as an alleged Elm House regular. Notorious paedophile Sidney Cooke was linked to providing boys for VIP sex parties in London.

Elm House itself was said to be home to a sauna and a video suite where sick films could be made. A man who said he was taken there as a child claimed he was plied with drink and made to wear a fairy costume while abusers chased him.

The files even raise a question mark about Mrs Kasir’s home country. The official report says she was born in Germany as Carole Weitzman, based on evidence given to the inquest by her estranged husband Haroon Kasir.

But a close family member says she was born in London and may have had the surname Jones. A campaigner said: “The fact that there are question marks over the basics makes you wonder what else went wrong. The whole thing needs re-examining.”

Deputy Labour leader Tom Watson was told by the Metropolitan Police that all the documents relating to the ­inquest had been destroyed.

Now it has emerged that information is untrue. Hammersmith ­coroner’s court, which held the inquest has ­released ­redacted accounts of the coroner’s notes, seen by the Sunday People. Evidence given by David Walker, who was a GP from the practice where Mrs Kasir had been a patient for 14 years, cast doubt on ­whether she had killed herself.

The evidence said she had ­attempted suicide in 1982, when the guest house was raided, been hospitalised after an overdose in 1984 and had a drinking problem in 1989 and was a heavy smoker.

But he said: “When there are marital difficulties you see the patient in a ­depressed light. Sometimes she was cheerful and ­friendly. I would not expect her to ­commit suicide.”

The postmortem report and the ­poisons unit report both show she had no alcohol in her body at the time of

 

Elm Guest House first came to public attention after MP Tom Watson raised questions in the House of Commons about a historic Westminster paedophile ring.

The house in Barnes, South West London, was said to have been used for child sexual abuse by VIP paedos in the 1980s. A 1982 leaflet published by the Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality said: “The facilities include a sauna, solarium and video studio.”

Just weeks later the guest house was raided by police. Carole and Haroon Kasir were convicted at the Old Bailey of running a brothel.

Visitors were said to have included the late Lib Dem MP and paedophile Cyril Smith.

Elm and the nearby former Grafton Close children’s home, run by Richmond Council, were subject to a police investigation, Operation Fernbridge, which led to the arrest and jailing of a Roman Catholic priest, Tony McSweeney, for three years in 2015.

John Stingmore, the former manager of the children’s home, was also arrested and charged and as the coroner’s papers show, was convicted as a paedophile after he left Richmond Council. Stingmore died just before he was due to face trial so one of the charges related to bringing a boy to Elm Guest House was never tested in court.

McSweeney’s offences did not involve the guest house.

In early 1983 Mrs Kasir was convicted with her husband Haroon Kasir of running a disorderly house.

Although the identities of many of the VIP visitors has been a source of speculation, police confirmed to a Channel 4 Dispatches programme that Smith – whose paedophile activities at Rochdale are currently being examined by the independent child sex abuse inquiry – did visit the guest house. The inquiry was also told that MI5 lied about knowledge they had he was a paedophile.

Theresa May and Amber Rudd suppress Westminster child abuse documents for national security reasons

November 20, 2017

Labour MP Lisa Nandy just revealed in parliament the embarrassing inconsistencies between Prime Minister Theresa May and Home Secretary Amber Rudd over documents being hidden from the inquiry into allegations of child abuse by MP Cyril Smith.

“The Home Secretary told me that some papers would be withheld from the Cyril Smith inquiry for national security reasons,” Nandy told the House of Commons, yet she added: “this week the Prime Minister has written to me to say we are clear that the work of the security services will not prevent information being shared with other such inquiries.”

– And she challenged Amber Rudd to confirm “for the survivors of Cyril Smith who have waited for decades” for justice – whether papers on historic allegations of child abuse against Smith will be withheld from inquiries for reasons of national security.

Cyril Smith was a Liberal MP for Rochdale in the 1970’s after Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe – who later resigned amid sexual scandal – insisted the local party have Smith as a candidate even though police had investigated serious allegations of sexual abuse of young boys in care homes in Rochdale where he had been Mayor.

The police investigation was dropped in 1970. Smith died in 2010 and two years later the Crown Prosecution Service admitted that he would have faced prosecution for allegations of child abuse where he still alive with allegations that had surfaced since.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse last month heard how Smith was a governor at several schools in Rochdale, including Knowl View, where one abuse survivor attended as a boy when Smith was governor. He gave horrific testimony of a rape by Smith.

 

The inquiry is investigating historic abuse in Rochdale schools and care homes and heard how police had warned that Smith had “used his unique position to indulge in a sordid series of indecent episodes with young boys towards whom he had a special responsibility.”

The inquiry was provided evidence by MI5 that the security service had been aware at the time that the Director of Public Prosecutions had lied to journalists about not charging the MP, saying a case hadn’t been referred to them.  MI5 appear to have not pursued this serious allegation as their role was “to defend the realm”, the inquiry heard.

A police report into Smith when he stood for election in 1970 read: “he has used his unique position to indulge in a sordid series of indecent episodes with young boys towards whom he had a special responsibility.”

The inquiry also heard that Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher would have been likely to be aware of the allegations against Cyril Smith when she awarded him a knighthood in 1988.

Lead counsel Brian Altman QC told the inquiry: “It is important to bear in mind the extent to which Cyril Smith continued to involve himself in serious issues related to the welfare of children. A knighthood would only have reinforced Smith’s veneer of respectability and power.”

Government papers relating to Cyril Smith will not be withheld, PM pledges

Prime Minister Theresa May has given assurances to an MP that Government papers relating to the late Cyril Smith will not be withheld.

Former shadow minister Lisa Nandy told the Commons that she had received a letter from the Prime Minister which stated the “work of the security services will not prevent information being shared”.

The letter prompted Ms Nandy to ask Home Secretary Amber Rudd whether she had been wrong to assert last month that some papers would be held back “under national security”.

The Wigan MP said: “Last month in this House the Home Secretary told me that some papers would be withheld from the Cyril Smith inquiry for national security reasons.

“This week the Prime Minister has written to me to say we are clear that the work of the security services will not prevent information being shared with other such inquires.

“So can she can confirm to the survivors of Cyril Smith (pictured) who have waited for justice for decades that she was wrong and that the Prime Minister is right?”

Ms Rudd replied: “Well I am happy to confirm the Prime Minister is always right and I will certainly look carefully at the letter that she has received to ensure that we comply with it.”

Smith, who was an MP for Rochdale between 1972 and 1992, is accused of sexually abusing a number of boys.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has heard evidence of the abuse and will publish its findings next year.

In her letter to Ms Nandy, the Prime Minister said: “As with the Government’s co-operation with the investigation into allegations of abuse at Kincora Boys’ Home in the 1970s, we are clear that the work of the security services will not prevent information being shared with other such inquires.

“Material relating to the allegations of abuse at Kincora Boys’ Home was disclosed to the Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry team in full.

“To assist with disclosure, a memorandum of understanding was established between the inquiry team, government departments and security services with regards to viewing and securing potentially relevant material.

“If material was identified as relevant to the inquiry, government department and security services would consider it for public disclosure, in line with UK Government disclosure obligations.”

Paedophile ring allegations: police are failing us, murdered boy’s father says

Vishambar Mehrotra fears police covered up links between his son’s killing and activities at south-west London Elm guest house

The father of a murdered child who believes he may have died at the hands of a paedophile ring involving high-profile individuals said the Metropolitan police was still failing his family 33 years on from the killing of his eight-year-old son.

Vishambar Mehrotra told the Guardian that if the police had covered up the links between his son’s abduction and killing in 1981, and the activities of paedophiles at a guest house in south-west London that is now at the centre of a new police inquiry into murders of children, they should be working even harder to bring the killers to justice today. Mehrotra’s son, Vishal, went missing in July 1981 in Putney, less than a mile from the Elm House guest house in Rock Lane, Barnes, while on his way home with his family from watching the wedding of the Prince of Wales and Diana Spencer.

Mary Moss Files ( Boxes )

Martin Walkerdine made this Freedom of Information request to Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

Hello I am seeking what did happen to the 49 boxes that were seized by The Met Police at Mary Moss address and neighbouring garden shed suggesting names she obtained by Carole Kasir saying that VIP’s were involved in child abuse at Elms Guest House in Barnes from 1978 to 1982 the raid took place sometime in 2013 near St Pancras area of London.

How many people were questioned as suspects.

How many people were questioned as witnesses.

How many files went to the CPS for them to decide on charges.

Has The Met returned the boxes to Mary Moss.

What was the name of police operation or operations linked to the Mary Moss files.

Is the operation or operations still ongoing or is this line of enquiry finished.

How many officers have dealt with the Mary Moss case and how much money was spent on it.

Can you name the lead officer in charge and the police station that dealt with this.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Walkerdine

The request was refused by Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).

Cliff or Kitty? Either way we'll keep it quiet!
Allegedly Sir Cliff Richard presently has a super injunction from the High Court preventing anyone naming him in connection with Elm Guest House – don’t worry Kitty your secret is safe on the internet!
It was first reported in 2010 that Sir Cliff Richard had surrended his British citizenship and become a National of Barbados known as a “Bajan”.
On 14th August British Police raided Cliff Richard’s mansion in Berkshire looking for evidence of Child sex abuse. Later on 14th August 2014 Sir Cliff Richard released this statement from Portugal:

Here is Sir Cliff Richard’s statement of 14th August 2014 in full after police started searching his Berkshire home:

“For many months I have been aware of allegations against me of historic impropriety which have been circulating online.

“The allegations are completely false. Up until now I have chosen not to dignify the false allegations with a response, as it would just give them more oxygen.

“However, the police attended my apartment in Berkshire today without notice, except it would appear to the press.

“I am not presently in the UK but it goes without saying that I will cooperate fully should the police wish to speak to me.

“Beyond stating that today’s allegation is completely false it would not be appropriate to say anything further until the police investigation has concluded.”

Ex-detective felt forced by BBC reporter to reveal Cliff Richard raid, court hears

Matthew Fenwick tells high court he felt he had ‘no option’ but to tell reporter about the search

Apr 16 2018

Matthew Fenwick, who was a detective superintendent with South Yorkshire police, said he believed reporter Dan Johnson would run a story about the investigation into the singer, leaving it “compromised”, unless he was told about the search.

Fenwick said it had been clear Johnson knew the force was investigating an allegation of child sexual abuse against Richard, because he described the singer as a “celebrity paedo” during a meeting.

Cliff Richard wins £210,000 in damages in BBC privacy case

Singer sued BBC for invasion of privacy over its coverage of child sex abuse claims

18 July 2018

Richard appeared in court to hear the verdict, accompanied by his friends Gloria Hunniford and Paul Gambaccini.

… the BBC director of news, Fran Unsworth…said the corporation could appeal against the judgment, and she warned about the wider consequences of the ruling for for press freedom.

Warning that the judgment created new case law and represented a “dramatic shift” against the ability of journalists to report on police investigations, Unsworth continued: “We don’t believe this is compatible with liberty and press freedoms, something that has been at the heart of this country for generations. For all of these reasons there is a significant principle at stake.”

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/jul/18/cliff-richard-wins-damages-from-bbc-over-police-raid-footage

In his ruling, Mr Justice Mann said that Sir Cliff’s right to privacy outweighed the BBC’s right to free expression in this case.

The judgment could have serious implications for the freedom of all media organisations to name the suspects of police investigations before they are charged.

Mr Justice Mann indicated that he would have found against the BBC even if it had published a “lower key report of the search and investigation”.

118. The fact that Cyril Smith’s public standing and professional career were never negatively impacted in any significant way by the suggestion that he was involved in child sexual abuse has given rise to considerable speculation that he was in some way protected by other politicians. We may consider the possibility that Smith was actively supported at the level of national politics, or at the very least, had a blind eye turned towards allegations against him, as part of the Westminster investigation.

 


Dame Alun Roberts‏ @ciabaudo

Don’t forget that many on this (Elm Guest House)  list are now convicted paedophiles or have been proven beyond reasonable doubt, e.g. Cyril Smith, to be paedophiles.

When I was a rentboy I often serviced Cyril Smith at the Strand Palace Hotel in the Charringcross Road. Cyril was unbelievably brutal and made me dress up as a Boy Scout. He used to give me thirty bob and my bus fare home.

I fail to understand why the British press has not questioned what happened to the files handed over by Mary Moss on a brothel which Cliff Richard is know to have frequented!

HRH Crafty Muvva🎆 @craftymuvva

From 1981, Vaz would regularly appear in local newspapers criticising police, council decisions etc…

By 1983, he becomes director of the Labour Party Richmond Advice Scheme. How many locals approached him regarding Elm Guest House, issues in Barnes or CSA?

In 1984 he becomes Chairman for West London NCCL. Another role where people would approach him about local issues – and they did!

 Keith Vaz and the Mystery of Barnes Common

In 1982, early in his political career and before he was an MP, Keith Vaz was Labour’s prospective parliamentary candidate for Richmond & Barnes, as well as being Solicitor for Richmond Council.

Elm Guest House on Rocks Lane, Barnes, was at the centre of a paedophile ring in 1982. Boys from Richmond Council-run care homes such as Grafton Close were supplied to Elm Guest House to be abused by VIPs.

As Labour’s prospective parliamentary candidate, you would expect Keith Vaz to have spent a lot of time talking to local residents and asking them about their concerns. Local people had a good idea of what went on at Elm Guest House, as we can see from this extract from a book by Jilly Cooper, a Barnes resident at the time, about conversations she had whilst walking on Barnes Common:

jillycooper

I asked Keith Vaz on twitter if he remembered hearing anything about Elm Guest House at the time:

vaztwit

This is odd, because I would have thought Labour voters and other residents would have complained to him about the badly kept secret of what Elm Guest House was really used for. I’m also surprised there weren’t rumours amongst Richmond Council staff. Keith Vaz did seem to be very well informed about crime on Barnes Common, as this article from  a July 1982 edition of Richmond & Barnes Times shows.

vaz5_1detail

Rocks Lane, where Elm Guest House paedophile ring was based, runs through the middle of Barnes Common, where the indecent assaults were happening. It’s very strange indeed that Keith Vaz was aware of one but not the other.

Would ‘Lady’ Brittan consider asking the Met what Eric Kasir, son of brothel owner Haroon, had to say about her oh so holy husband?

Did the questioning of Eric Kasir lead Paul Settle to believe that Leon Brittan, patron of Haroon Kasir’s EGH, was a paedophile?

It is possible this victim of Leon Brittan was the son of EGH owner Haroon Kasir. Any comments?

Was this US American citizen the son of Haroon Kasir and why did he change his mind?

Did Op Midland ask Haroon Kasir who these three MPs were?

 

Surely Haroon Kasir knows the names of the three MPs present at EGH when it was raided in the 80s.

 

 The only connection yet made between Savile and Elm has been in an Exaro report which claims Haroon (Harry Kasir- husband of Carol Kasir) was friendly with Savile who often dropped in for tea. The article also reported comments that Harry became strange and withdrawn after Savile’s death and that Harry is now seeking to raise money to fund a new life, in the US, where his son lives.

Carole Kasir Inquest – 1990

Here are a few articles reporting on the inquest in to the death of Carole Kasir – the former owner of Elm Guest House.  Allegations against MPs and other VIPs were mentioned during the inquest.

There were rumours that her death wasn’t accidental and Carole herself had claimed to have been followed by (what she suspected to be) MI5 in the lead up to her death.  However, Dr John Burton concluded that the cause of her death was suicide.  I will cover that in more detail here in due course, but in the meantime I have collated/published them for ease of reference.

Cadbury

In 1972, an alleged victim disclosed to her GP that she had been abused by Jocelyn Cadbury. She called him a ‘sadistic paedophile’. A very well known journalist was told about this allegation.

Another credible journalist claimed that Cadbury killed himself (on 31 July 1982), just two days after being questioned by police in relation to Elm Guest House.

The Police and journalists at the time will know whether this is true or not. Op Fernbridge has the Police files on Cadbury. Hopefully they have shared with

Why was there no mention of Cadbury being interviewed at his suicide inquest just a few days later?

Cadbury was very close to Parris. Parris was a close buddy of Proctor. Why aren’t today’s media investigating these lines of inquiry? I’m sure their colleagues from the 80’s could help them!

Tellingly, Cadbury was PPS to Norman Lamont, who criticised the Police for wasting money on historical abuse cases.

Like Lamont, Matthew Parris, close friend of Jocelyn Cadbury, is 1 of those talking down any VIP involvement in CSA

Was Jocelyn Cadbury was one of those MPs. He committed suicide less than 1 month after the EGH raid.

What does Norman Lamont know about the suicide of Jocelyn Cadbury MP, his former PPS, less than a month after Elm Guest House was raided?

Is there any link between the suicide of Jocelyn Cadbury and the raid on Elm Guest House which were less than 1 month apart?

Matthew Parris – friend and defender of Harvey Proctor – Proctor’s name also appears on the Elm House Guest list

Kesgrave Hall school: police files on alleged sexual abuse were ‘destroyed’

Police and Suffolk county council have said they no long have files on a joint investigation into allegations of child abuse at a boarding school for troubled boys. This is from the Guardian…

Alexander Hanff, a former pupil of Kesgrave Hall near Ipswich who has alleged he was sexually assaulted by staff at the school, said he was “deeply disappointed” that records of the 1992 investigation appear to have been destroyed. Hanff is one of 10 ex-pupils who told the Guardian they were victims or witnesses of a range of abuse at the school between 1980 and 1993.

At least 30 pupils were interviewed by police in 1992 as part of the Kesgrave Hall investigation. Four members of staff were suspended and received psychiatric help before being reinstated. The school was closed down in 1993, a year after the police inquiry, and no members of staff were prosecuted.

Suffolk police have been urged by Daniel Poulter, the Tory MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, to reopen the investigation after he said he was “extremely concerned” about the abuse claims.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said on Thursday he could not say whether the investigation would be reopened. The force said in a statement: “Suffolk Constabulary no longer holds the files in relation to crimes occurring of this nature at Kesgrave Hall School due to the age of the offence and that review, retention and disposal guidelines at the time scheduled for its disposal.”

The Guardian has been told that Vivian Davies, a former director of the private company that ran the school, destroyed the vast majority of records relating to Kesgrave Hall when he moved house before his death.

Kesgrave/Stowmarket: Inquiries into historic child abuse allegations at three former schools

04 February 2013

The accusations, which relate to alleged physical and sexual assaults, are said to have occurred between the late 1970s and run through to the 1990s.

A solicitor representing ex-pupils of one of the schools – Oakwood School in Stowmarket – has said the number of claimants has reached three figures.

Andrew Grove, who is based in Cambridge, said: “We now have 100 complainants on the civil claim relating to Oakwood School.”

Last week detectives said they were re-opening the 1992 inquiry into alleged abuse at Kesgrave Hall independent school.

The investigation, codenamed Operation Garford, comes after former students’ calls for it to be re-opened were backed by Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Dan Poulter.

Responding to the new inquiry, Dr Poulter said: “I am pleased that Suffolk Police are conducting a full and thorough investigation into the alleged child abuse at Kesgrave Hall school, following my intervention.

“A number of people have written to me raising concerns about abuse when they or their family members were pupils at the school, and I would again urge anyone who has been the victim of abuse to come forward and immediately contact Suffolk police.”

Four people were suspended in 1992 during the Kesgrave Hall inquiry. No charges were ever brought. The school closed in 1993.

However, a woodwork teacher Alan Stancliffe, was convicted and jailed in 1999 and again in 2007 for indecent assaults on three ex-pupils.

Two other police inquiries involving the former St George’s School in Great Finborough, near Stowmarket, and Oakwood School are also continuing.

Operation Racecourse (St George’s) has been running since the late 2000s. It has led to the independent school’s ex-headmaster Derek Slade being jailed for 21 years in 2010 for sexual and physical abuse against pupils between the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Alan Brigden (aka Morton), 67, who taught maths at St George’s, was jailed for five years last year for sexual abuse after being extradited back from Holland despite two suicide attempts.

A third man, music teacher Alan Williams, 59, who lived in Stowmarket, took his own life after being arrested on suspicion of abuse.

A 59-year-old man who taught at St George’s is currently on police bail after being arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse.

Operation Oxenton (Oakwood School) is a criminal inquiry involving 95 complainants from the civil case.

There have already been convictions linked to Oakwood School dating back to the late 1980s.

Teacher Keith Hatton was jailed for four years in 1987 for nine sex assaults, while a part-time assistant John Wills, 45, of Stowmarket – who was a teacher in other schools and a foster carer – was jailed for eight months in 1995 for sexually abusing a child.

A Stowmarket clergyman with connections to the school, took his own life in 2003 after being arrested on suspicion of sexual assault

Oakwood School shut in 2000.

Kesgrave Hall school sex abuse: Victim slept with ‘one eye open’

13 May 2016

John McKno, 70, of Alby in Norfolk, admitted nine acts of sexual indecency committed against five pupils at three different schools in the 1970s and 1980s and he has been jailed for 14 years.

One of the schools was Kesgrave Hall near Ipswich, described at the time as a school for children with behaviour problems, but who had above-average intelligence.

Children were sent there from across the country by their local education authorities and it had about 40 pupils and 12 staff at any one time.

Lee Woolcott-Ellis, now 51 and living in Kent, was a pupil at the school from 1975 to 1980 and helped police with their investigation, which eventually traced two Kesgrave victims of McKno.

“I’ve said in court it was a paedophile ring – they all knew each other, took part in indecent assaults and followed the same modus operandi,” he said.

McKno worked at Kesgrave between 1986 and 1987 but his history of offending took in two of his previous schools – Beam College in Devon (where he taught from 1978 to 1979) and St Michael’s College in Worcestershire (where he taught between 1979 and 1985).

In 1999, another former Kesgrave teacher was convicted of child sex offences.

Alan Stancliffe was jailed for two years for indecent assaults on three boys between 1977 and 1981, one of whom was Mr Woolcott-Ellis.

Suffolk Police closed its original investigation into further suspected sexual abuse at Kesgrave in 1992, but the inquiry was reopened in 2012.

Three other former Kesgrave staff, who were part of the new inquiry, died in 2014:

  • Kenneth Wheatley, 62 and also known as Kenneth Scott, was arrested on suspicion of sex offences and found dead on a railway line near his home in Barnsley
  • David Brockman, 59, who lived in Huntingdon, was questioned by police on suspicion of sex offences and died of natural causes
  • Michael Lafford, 67, who was questioned about physical abuse rather than sexual offences, took an overdose and died at his home in Bicester, Oxfordshire

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-suffolk-34504196

A RETIRED teacher committed suicide after a police paedophile investigation unit turned up at his Bicester house with a search warrant, an inquest found.

Michael Lafford, 67, took an overdose of medication when Thames Valley Police’s Paedophile Online Investigation Team  (POLIT) attempted to search his house in November last year.

DS Paula Morgan, in charge of the unit, said they were working with intelligence that the former Ofsted inspector possessed indecent images of children.

An inquest heard that as officers knocked on his front door and identified themselves, other officers at the rear of the property saw Mr Lafford swallowing pills.

Kesgrave Hall School (1976 – 1993)

Kesgrave Hall School was a private boys’ boarding school in Kesgrave, England,[2] catering for pupils with high academic potential who were unable to flourish in mainstream schools.[1]

Incidents

Alan Stancliffe was convicted, in 1982, in 1999, and again in 2007, of indecently assaulting five boys at Kesgrave Hall School where he had been a teacher from 1978 to 1980.[1][2][3]

In December 2012, former pupils of the school came forward to describe the abuse they had suffered there during the 1980s, and their call for a new investigation was taken up and successful.[4][5][6] In May 2014, after being questioned over allegations of sexual abuse, Kenneth Wheatley (Scott), a former care worker at the school and a convicted child sex offender, was found dead.[7][8] In September 2014, Alan Stancliffe died while on bail facing a fourth set of child sex allegations.[9]

In November 2014, former language teacher, house-parent and Ofsted inspector Michael Lafford killed himself by swallowing pills when police investigating online child pornography visited his house.[10][11]

In March 2016, former care staff member John McKno admitted the sexual abuse of five boys, all under 16 and one under 14, at Kesgrave Hall, Beam College in Great Torrington, Devon, and St Michael’s College in Tenbury Wells, Worcs.[12] He worked at Kesgrave Hall in the mid-1980s. On 13 May 2016, he was jailed for 14 years at Ipswich Crown Court.[13]

Sex shame of ex-teacher

26 November 2007

A former teacher convicted of sexually assaulting schoolboys hid his criminal past to find work at a Leeds college. Alan Stancliffe, 58, worked at Trinity and All Saints in Horsforth for five years, helping to arrange work experience for students. He had committed a string of sex offences against boys he taught at a private boarding school almost 30 years ago. His past came to light when he faced trial this month for sexually abusing another pupil at the same school. “Leeds Trinity were not aware of any convictions when he was appointed or during the time he was in employment here,” said director of marketing and communications, Kim Somerville. “His work did not require or involve unsupervised contact with children or vulnerable adults, therefore a Criminal Records Bureau check was not required.” Stancliffe, of Pontefract, worked at the college from December 2002 to May this year. He suddenly resigned, citing personal reasons. His work involved managing a programme to provide work links for undergraduates at the higher education college, which has about 2,500 students. During his four-day trial at Ipswich Crown Court this month it emerged that he had been convicted, in 1982 and again in 1999, of indecently assaulting four boys at Kesgrave Hall School, a boarding school for disruptive boys near Ipswich, where he had been a woodwork and technical drawing teacher from 1978 to 1980.

This systemic abuse was prevalent in the institutions I was forced to attend from the age of 6 to 16 years of age. Heanton School, North Devon and Kesgrave Hall School, Suffolk were residential, private organisations I attended as a boarder. These schools were owned and run by the same group of directors. Spending 5 years at each school during the 1970’s was to have a far reaching impact on my adult life and affect every facet of my social and professional interactions.

https://leewe15.wordpress.com/tag/kesgrave-hall-school/

The police investigation was prompted by a former Kesgrave Hall care worker who reported his concerns to social services. Kesgrave Hall school closed in 1993, less than a year after the police inquiry.

Eric Richardson, the school’s head at the time of the investigation, told the East Anglian Daily Times in 1992 that the four members of staff had received psychiatric help after they were suspended. Richardson told the paper that the suspended staff were not sadists, but conceded that their conduct was “probably heavy-handed to a point that it should not have been”.

Michael Smith, the headteacher from 1984 to 1992, declined to comment explicitly when asked about the abuse claims.

Nigel Kennard, who was a director of Kesgrave Hall School Ltd, the now-defunct private company that ran the school, refused to comment.

Suffolk: ‘I was abused by paedophiles around the country while I was a child in care’, man alleges

06 May 2014

Murmurings of a paedophile network operating in Suffolk from the 1970s to the 1990s have grown louder over the last five years.

Earlier this month two men – a 62-year-old care worker and 65-year-old teacher at the former Kesgrave Hall school – were arrested on suspicion of child sex offences between the 1970s and 1990s.

As a result the 62-year-old man from Barnsley, was also arrested as part of the National Crime Agency’s inquiry into abuse at care homes in north Wales.

…one man has now alleged he was abused around the country as a child while in the Suffolk care system. He also said he was assaulted in the county by Peter Righton, one of the founders of the now notorious Paedophile Information Exchange.

Towards the end of his life Righton lived in a property near Eye. Henniker’s Thornham Magna

Lord Henniker at Thornham 1985

 

Michael – not his real name – also said he was trafficked around the country by his male foster carer to be molested by strangers.

These ‘trips’ included being taken to north Wales where the large-scale inquiry is currently going on into mass child abuse in care homes, as well as being driven down to London.

Michael has been in contact with officers from the National Crime Agency’s Operation Pallial, who are investigating the abuse allegations in Wales. He has also contacted the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Fernbridge which is investigating various allegations relating to London.

The man who Michael was placed with was in a position of trust professionally and had links to other abuse inquiries and voluntary organisations.

The foster carer was jailed by Ipswich Crown Court for sexually molesting a boy in his care and was subsequently ordered to pay compensation to Michael for abusing him.

Michael is adamant there was a paedophile ring operating in Suffolk with national links to people in positions of power.

Michael said between his foster carer and an intermediary it was arranged he would be taken to see Peter Righton.

The disgraced child care guru has since been unmasked as a paedophile who had access to all echelons of society.

A founding member of the Paedophile Information Exchange he was staying in Suffolk.

Righton’s name has been connected to some of the national abuse scandals currently being investigated.

Michael said he and others were taken to where he was staying near Eye and was abused on around a dozen occasions by Righton.

“whoever investigating THORNHAM MAGNA should check for links to home in Stonham.”

I was known and respected by Suffolk Council as a foster carer and advocate for teens and all was good until this ADMIRALTY Father had a freak out and also I started making enquiries and complaints about FOUR ELMS

all of a sudden persona non grata and they were relieved I left the country?

FOUR ELMS

“In November 2012, the BBC reported that Lawrence McLean, who stayed at Four Elms as a child, was seeking compensation from Suffolk Council for the years of abuse he suffered.

He said at weekends children at the home were lined up and taken into a van where they were sexually assaulted.

He said if any children refused, they were given whisky to get them drunk.

Mr McLean said he was also forced to perform acts in the bed of Victor Copperman, who was once an officer in charge at the home.

An internal Suffolk County Council report in 2010 found that Mr McLean had been “controlled by staff at Four Elms, scary games had been played… and he had been taken into the officer in charge’s bed”. The report concluded: “There is a substantial body of recording of the view by professionals that Lawrence McLean had been psychologically and sexually abused during the period of his residence at Four Elms.” The report recommended that Mr Mclean deserved an apology from the council and be paid £6,500 compensation.

Suffolk County Council refused to apologise and offered him £200 and six counselling sessions.”

Stonham Parva is just a few miles from the village of Eye in Suffolk, where Lord Henniker’s estate is located. This is where childcare expert and network paedophile Peter Righton and his partner were invited to stay after Righton’s conviction for importing child pornography. Islington Council sent children to Henniker’s estate for years under a scheme called the Islington Suffolk Project. Source: Country house hideaway of disgraced care chief”

Police said they were also investigating allegations of a child sex ring link with the Four Elms home

In 1987 two people were shot and killed at the Four Elms children’s home in Stonham Parva, Suffolk. They were Vic Copperman, the owner of Four Elms, and his girlfriend, Thea Trevelyan.

Deidre Washington was convicted for their murders, although the judge gave her just 18 months in jail after hearing that she killed the couple because her teenage daughter, who had special needs, had been sexually abused at the home.

https://spotlightonabuse.wordpress.com/2013/07/19/four-elms-childrens-home-suffolk/

Joanna Washington’s nightmare began when she was 12. She had developed behavioural problems and learning difficulties at the age of eight, becoming involved in fights, and spent four years moving from home to home until she arrived at Four Elms, where Copperman was principal. There she was plied with whiskey and subjected to vile orgies of drunken debauchery.

At weekends Joanna became the victim of other paedophiles who visited the converted Georgian farmhouse in the Suffolk countryside.

Pornographic videos were taken of the children, and black magic rituals and vicious beatings occurred regularly. Eventually Jo blurted out her story while on holiday with her grandmother. She took Jo to be examined by a doctor, who confirmed that sexual abuse had taken place.

Later Jo gave Suffolk police a 60-page statement of her experiences at Four Elms, and when Dee’s solicitor visited her in Holloway she was told that police had a file eight inches thick of statements taken from former pupils at the home, supporting Jo’s allegations.

Home owners face action over death

Legal proceedings have been taken against the owners of a
private children’s home in Suffolk, after a teenage resident died
in an accident in the home’s grounds.

Damien Thompson, 13, died after a motorbike he was riding in the
grounds of Four Elms home in Stonham Parva crashed into a tree.

Andy White, director of environmental health for Mid Suffolk
district Council, which carried out a four-month inquiry into the
accident, said: ‘We believe there was a fault and have decided
there is justifiable legal action to be taken.’

Action will be taken against Parkside Care, the home’s owners,
under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Parkside Care
director Steve Hughes could not comment because of legal
restrictions.

Dame Alun Roberts‏ @ciabaudo

I stumbled across this tweet referring to John Whittingdale having used the alias John Napier ‘in those days’.

Now that is interesting because I was told some time ago that there was a consensus of opinion among police investigators that a John Napier who appeared as #114 on a PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange) membership list was in fact John Whittingdale.

His name appeared ‘namely’ right next to that of his half-brother Charles Napier who affectionately referred to Whippo in correspondence as ‘Little Johnny’, a man who he would entrust stuff to for safekeeping. Charles, a prolific abuser, was a very close friend of Peter Righton.

Shortly after first tweeting about #114 John Napier, this newspaper article suddenly appeared, suggesting John Napier was someone else, a brothel owner who would have been around 70 when PIE was set up. But, as they say, decide for yourselves!

Freemason Keith Harding played vital role in Britain’s biggest child sex ring

He met regularly with MPs Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith at his world-renowned workshop.

One of his staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop. Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in.“They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs.“Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.”The former worker added: “The shop had many high profile customers, including the Royals, because we were one of the few antique dealers in the world that specialised in restoring clocks, music boxes and automatons.“It’s only now, with what I know about Brittan and Smith, and of course Keith, that has made me wonder what they were doing.

Keith Harding was a member of PIE and Whittingdale’s half-brother Charles Napier was treasure of PIE.After been found guilty of abuse as early as 1972, Napier was placed on List 99 with the Department of Education and so should not have been allowed to teach again However Peter Righton, an equally devious and prolific abuser, intervened As Director of Education at the National Institute for Social Work, Righton had become a prestigious and respected social work professional.
( The National Institute for Social Work – NISW – was a provider of services aimed at achieving excellence in practice and management in social work and social care in the UK and past employees include Sir Peter Barclay – Author with Righton of the Barclay Report – Sir Williiam Utting – Author of the Utting Report – Daphne Statham – Director – Dame Denise Platt – Chair of the Commission for Social Care Inspection – Barbara Hearn OBE Panel member on Independent Inquiry 2014 )Righton on headed NISW paper wrote to the Department of Education claiming he was a counsellor of convicted paedophiles ( in reality they were his close knit PIE friends ) and that he had counselled Napier to the point he was no longer a risk to children and could return to teaching.
He added in his letter to the D of Ed that to be doubly certain he ( Righton ) had sought a second opinion from a well known child psychiatrist who concurred with his expert opinion
The psychiatrist in question was Dr.Morris Fraser, another convicted paedophile and PIE member who wrote a supporting report on Great Ormond St headed note paperThis allowed Napier to embark on a new teaching career abroad employed by the British Council, founded by the UK Government in 1934
He was able ( by his own admission in a number of letters to Righton over many years ) to abuse countless number of boys in Sweden and Egypt over many years in the late 70’s through the 80’s until 1992 when the arrest of Righton and the discovery of these letters led to his ( Napier’s) immediate dismissalNapier and Righton ” shared ” a large number of victims, and offences,including rape, during the 80’s but never faced charges on any of the most serious cases of abuseMany questions remain unanswered including who were Napier’s referees for his employment with the British CouncilWhy was Righton allowed to reach the very top of the social work profession ( with posts at NISW and the National Children’s Bureau as stepping stones to positions as a Home Office/ Government “expert” on major reports ) despite being caught red handed abusing boys on a large scale in the 1950’s and writing quite openly in NISW and NCB journals, articles etc from 1971 onwards about his views that adult and child sexual relationships were not necessarily harmfulhttps://spotlightonabuse.wordpress.com/page/10/

Peter Righton has since died. His partner, Richard Alston, who lived with him at Thornham Magna, has since been convicted and imprisoned for sexual offences against children.

This Year 35 years ago in 1983 Islington BC gave a grant of £3,233 to the Islington Suffolk Project which a decade later in 1993 gave haven to Peter Righton after his conviction

Why did Peter Righton hide out in Thornham Magna @ Islington Suffolk Project?

Intriguing deal, Rifkind’s cousin Leon Brittan + Westland heir also on Elm Guest House list~

The Rifkind and Brittan cousins were both involved with both Westland and Unilever.


Lady Diana Brittan was Chair of the Runnymede Trust 1998-99. Diana is the widow of Leon Brittan, former Home Secretary and the man who was investigated by Operation Midland for sex offences. It was reported earlier this year that Lady Diana had received approx £100k in compensation – which was accompanied by a confidentiality clause – from the Metropolitan Police for them daring to investigate Leon. Thatcher appointed Leon as Minister of State at the Home Office in 1979 under Willie Whitelaw and then in 1983 Leon became Home Secretary himself. Whilst Leon was Home Secretary organised child abuse was concealed, the dossier naming Westminster figures who were allegedly molesting children that was given to Leon by Geoffrey Dickens MP was ‘lost’, the police abused their powers repeatedly but action was never taken against them – there was a feeling that the police had become a private army of Thatcher’s Gov’t (see post ‘A Few Of The Relevant Politicians Re Mary Wynch’s Case’). Just about everything that was the responsibility of the Home Office was riddled with corruption under dear old Leon. Whilst Leon was Home Secretary the Home Office gave funding to PIE. Leon left the Cabinet as a result of the scrap over Westland and it has been alleged that he was the fall guy to prevent it being exposed that Thatcher had lied – Leon was given a job as a European Commissioner as compensation. Leon has been named repeatedly as a child abuser himself which is partly what caused him to come to the attention of Operation Midland – that and the allegation from a woman that he had raped her many years ago.

In 2002 ‘The Independent’ ran a toadying article about Diana, identifying her as a ‘new-style Tory wife’, explaining that she was actually very similar to Tony Blair: ‘She’s just where Tony is, she doesn’t act as a result of a traditional, party political, ideological perspective, but from a moral perspective. She does something because its the right thing to do.’ We all know how moral Tony is and how he had a penchant for doing the right thing. He was after all a pretty straight kind of guy – which will be why he lied to Parliament, was mates with Berlusconi and now acts as an advisor to various dictators and kleptocrats.

The Indie was writing about Diana because she had had an upsetting experience. In her capacity as Chair of the National Lottery Community Fund Diana had OK’d grants to what ‘The Daily Mail’ had described as ‘bizarre and politically correct’ causes and ‘The Daily Mail’ had unleashed a ‘hate campaign’ against her. Paul Dacre had become vexed that Diana had given her blessing to grants to a gay choir and an organisation breeding Andean guinea pigs, but the last straw for Dacre was the funding of an organisation helping unsuccessful asylum seekers fighting deportation. The hate campaign was unleashed – the Mail urged readers to WRITE TO DIANA’S OFFICE. That is what poor old Diana was having to deal with, which is what prompted the Indie to describe her as a ‘brave woman with a moral sense of what is right’.

Diana the Brave and Moral has had her fingers in many pies. She sat as a magistrate on the City of London bench from 1984 – whilst she was married to the Home Secretary whilst the police did what they like including amending statements in order to fit people up – and was appointed a member of the EOC in 1989 and then its Deputy Chair, 1994-96. Diana became Deputy Chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority in 1990 – whilst IVF clinics lied to their patients and generally fleeced them (see post ‘Every Sperm Is Sacred – Particularly In Scotland’). She was Chair of the Race in Europe Network, Chair of the European Union of Women, Chair of the OU Foundation and a member of the Lord Chancellor’s advisory committee on legal education and conduct. The Indie mentions that Diana is a ‘committee person’ because those are the people who get things done and that the world of committees like people with good networks. Perhaps such as people who are married to other people who concealed serious crime for years and then popped over to Brussels to help out. I expect that Diana has had Dominique Strauss-Kahn to dinner – a delightful man…and Christine Lagarde as well, Christine who Woman’s Hour really loved and put on their Power List. The Christine who was found guilty of ‘negligence’ by the French courts regarding that business of the 403 million euros ‘arbitration’ in favour of Bernard Tapie and would have gone to prison except that she was MD of the IMF and you’re not allowed to put them in prison.

Between 1977-89 Diana was the managing editor of a ‘technical press agency’ – I wonder what sort of sins were involved there. Being the brave moral woman that she is, she ‘advised’ Jonathan Aitken after he was found guilty of perjury and was facing prison.

Diana is involved with the Carnegie UK Trust.

Diana and Leon kept a home in London where they troughed with the rich n famous, but they also had a home in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, what with Leon being the MP for Richmond. The North Yorkshire which was the centre of a paedophile ring. William Hague succeeded Leon’s seat in Richmond, became Secretary of State for Wales despite all that boasting about being a Yorkshireman through and through and having shown bugger all interest in Wales. Upon his appointment he organised the cover-up into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal which was the Waterhouse Inquiry. When William was running for the Tory Party leadership he found himself in urgent need of a wife – the Tories were expressing great concern that he was ‘single’, which seemed a little inconsistent in so far as they had no problem with Sir Peter Morrison attending sex parties with under-aged boys from children’s homes in north Wales. Fortunately for William a suitable woman arrived as if to order – Ffion, who had been a senior civil servant in the Welsh Office whilst it concealed criminal conduct in the children’s services and mental health services in north Wales. Love blossomed, although Thatcher was disgusted that Ffion and William shared an hotel room before they were married. I have just purchased a copy of Thatch’s autobiography ‘The Downing Street Years’ – I’ve only read the foreword and introduction so far but I’ve noticed that Peter Morrison is one of those thanked by Thatch in the book. I’m looking forward to reading Thatch’s fond reminiscences re her old mate Jimmy Savile.

Following Diana’s brief stint at the Runnymede, Samir Shah was Chair of the Runnymede Trust until 2009. Samir is a media executive who certainly ticks all the boxes. He was a student at St Catherine’s College, Oxford in the 1970s as were Mandelson and others known to this blog (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny). In 1977 Samir worked for the Intelligence Unit at the Home Office whilst Merlyn Rees was Home Secretary busy concealing criminal activity in north Wales, so he’ll have found out a few interesting things and made a few contacts there (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). Then in 1979 he joined Mandy and the gang at LWT where he was a researcher and a producer on Eastern Eye, Credo, Weekend World and The London Programme. In 1987 Samir was appointed head of BBC’s TV current affairs and in 1994 he was appointed head of BBC’s Political Programmes, TV and Radio. In 1998 became Chief Exec of Juniper, an independent production company.

Shah was a Trustee for the Medical Foundation of the Victims of Torture, 2004-06 – who I seem to remember a few years ago were found to be harbouring a Top Doctor who had played a key role in the Rwandan Genocide. He was the former Chair of Screen West Midlands and was a non-executive Director of the BBC Board, 2007-10. Shah is on the Board of BAFTA, is or was Deputy Chair at the V&A Museum and in 2014 was appointed Chair of the Geffrye Museum. He is a visiting Prof at Nottingham University and sits on the advisory panel on Oxford University’s Humanities Division. Samir was also on the Advisory Group of the dear old Royal Television Society’s Cambridge Convention in 2015.

Samir Shah was followed as Chair of the Runnymede by Chris Jones who is at present still in post. Chris Jones is another broadcaster and media executive…

So those are the Chairs of the Runnymede Trust. What about the Directors? Well obviously Dipak Nandy was in place until 1973, but then he handed over the reigns to others. The Runnymede has had a few Directors with CV’s and networks as interesting as Dipak.

Usha Prashar was Director, 1977-84. Usha was born in Kenya but came to the UK – Yorkshire – with her family in the 1960s. She went to the independent Wakefield Girls School and then Leeds University, graduating in 1970. A post-graduate course in Social Administration at Glasgow University followed. Directing the Runnymede Trust certainly launched Usha into the action. She was a Fellow of the Policy Studies Institute – a think tank which later merged with Westminster University – between 1984-86 and was then appointed as Director of NCVO – the umbrella organisation for so many charitable organisations concealing serious wrongdoing. Usha was non-executive Chair of the Parole Board, 1997-2000. That was when the Parole Board appointed Colin Berry, David Mawson and Chris Hunter – three Top Doctors who concealed the abuses of psychiatry and the associated paedophile gang in north Wales – as members, as well as a number of other very questionable people.

Usha was appointed a Civil Service Commissioner in 1990 and was First Civil Service Commissioner, 2000-2005. She was a non-executive director of Channel 4, 1992-99 and a non-executive director of UNITE Group plc, 2001-04. UNITE Group plc is ‘the UK’s leading manager and developer of student accommodation’. So they’ll be the ones who built those extravagantly luxurious apartments which were ruthlessly marketed to students including those who couldn’t afford them and ended up in financial trouble. Never mind the quality of your courses, just look at the accommodation that you’ll live in if you come to study here… Usha became a Governor of De Montfort University in 1996 and was Chancellor, 2001-2006. In recent years after the arrival of a new Vice-Chancellor, DMU has became a much happier less dysfunctional place. Whilst Usha was on board however a lot of very odd things went on at DMU and a number of recent graduates ended up in scandals, including a social worker who was caught illegally smuggling a baby into the UK which she had purchased in Africa. The staff at the time kept flagging up that things were unravelling on the ground, but they were ignored.

Usha was also appointed a Trustee of the BBC World Service Trust in 2002 and a non-executive Director of ITV plc in 2005. She is or was President of the Royal Commonwealth Society and Deputy Chair of the British Council. She was Chair of the National Literacy Trust, 2001-05.

Usha served on the Hutton Inquiry into Iraq. The inquiry into the conduct of Usha’s friend Tony Blair who had given Baroness Usha her peerage in 1999.

Usha is a Trustee of Cumberland Lodge, ‘an educational charity initiating fresh debate on the burning questions facing society’. The website of Cumberland Lodge has no sign of anything educational or anything remotely fresh, although the slogan ‘creative thinking and inclusive dialogue’ is emblazoned across the site – but they do hold their meetings in a lovely castle and there’s plenty of photos of that. The castle in question is Windsor Castle. That’s so inclusive that I might drop into a meeting of Cumberland Lodge myself.

The intellectual powerhouse that is Usha is also a Governor of the Ditchley Foundation, which was established to ‘promote international understanding and relations, especially Anglo-American’. The Ditchley Foundation was founded in 1958 by Sir David Wills, a descendant of W.D. and H.O. Wills, the tobacco barons. It is based in Ditchley Park, another splendid building for Usha to do her thinking in, near Chipping Norton. So Rebekah Brooks and Cameron are just down the road then.

The Chair of the Ditchley Foundation is Lord George Robertson, Secretary of State for Defence under Blair, 1997-99 and then NATO General Secretary, 1999-2003. That went well then. The Chairman of the Ditchley Foundation between 2000-09 was Sir John Major, former PM, one time bedfellow of Edwina Currie and the protector of the paedophiles of north Wales via the vehicle of William Hague.

The Director of the Ditchley Foundation from 2010-16 was Sir John Holmes, a former diplomat who also held a senior role with the UN. Sir John was Principal Private Secretary to Blair whilst Blair was PM and he was also involved in the N Ireland peace talks – in which whatever happened at the Kincora Boys Home was used as a negotiating tool. Sir John Holmes has just been appointed Chair of the Electoral Commission.

The Director of the Ditchley Foundation, 1999-04 was Sir Nigel Broomfield, a former diplomat who was Chairman of Leonard Cheshire Disability, 2004-09.

Virtually all the Directors are of this ilk – former diplomats who have done a stint with the UN and who often have links to defence officials.

What about Usha’s fellow Governors at the Ditchley Foundation? Here are the names of some of them:

Lord Adonis, David Cameron, Margaret Beckett, Virginia Bottomley, Lord Carrington, Robin Butler, Shami Chakrabarty, Menzies Campbell, David Hunt, Geoffrey Howe, Neil Kinnock, David Miliband, Pauline Neville-Jones, Malcolm Rifkind, Jack Straw, Shirley Williams, Peter Jay, Paul Boateng.

Half of all top IRA men ‘worked for security services’

December 21 2011

Half of all senior IRA members in the Troubles were working for intelligence services, a secret dossier of evidence into the murder of two RUC men has claimed.

The remarkable document has laid bare a startling series of claims about the infiltration of both the police and terror groups during the ‘Dirty War’.

It claims the IRA ran agents in the RUC and also that Dundalk Garda station was regarded by British intelligence as “a nest of vipers”, with at least two officers actively assisting the Provos.

The information is contained in a secret 24-page document in the name of Ian Hurst — a British intelligence whistleblower — which has been seen by the Belfast Telegraph.

The sensational claims are due to be made to Justice Peter Smithwick’s Dublin tribunal of inquiry into the murder of two senior RUC officers in 1989.

The victims, Chief Superintendent Harry Breen and Superintendent Robert Buchanan, died in a hail of IRA gunfire as they crossed the border following an intelligence exchange with the Garda in Dundalk.

The dossier also claims:

  • The shadowy Force Research Unit (FRU) had a file on suspected rogue gardai prepared to pass information to the IRA and act as its agents. MI5 also had a network of agents with the Garda.
  • The IRA had a network of informants in public agencies such as social security offices and vehicle licensing departments.
  • One in four IRA members was an agent, rising to one in two among senior members.
  • Martin McGuinness was involved in all strategic military decisions taken by the IRA.

At the centre of the web of intrigue sat the IRA’s head of internal security, the agent known as Stakeknife, who took information from rogue gardai while himself working for British intelligence.

Perhaps the most shocking claim is that a rogue Garda Sergeant leaked intelligence to Stakeknife. Stakeknife has been identified as Freddie Scappaticci, a veteran Belfast republican.

Scappaticci has strongly denied working for British intelligence and said he had cut his links with the IRA in 1990. He is legally represented at the Smitwick Tribunal and is now considering giving evidence in person.

Last night Mr Hurst refused to comment on the document.

He said: “I believe that this was made public to mess me about. I cannot comment on it because of an injunction preventing me from giving details of my career in special forces.”

Mr Hurst worked in military intelligence between 1981 and 1990, spending most of that time in the FRU, responsible for handling agents and informants in Irish paramilitary groups. The injunction has been varied to allow him to give evidence to Smithwick in Dublin.

However tribunal lawyers are insisting that he give his testimony in closed session, something he suspects is part of a deal with the British authorities to limit potentially embarrassing disclosures.

One of the alleged rogue officers in Dundalk has already been indentified. Owen Corrigan, a detective sergeant, was named by Jeffrey Donaldson under Parliamentary privilege. Mr Corrigan, now retired, has always denied the allegation and appeared at the tribunal to reject them. He is one of three gardai, two based in Dundalk and one in Donegal, named in the document.

In the document Mr Hurst says “the fact that a Garda was passing information to the IRA did not bother me anymore or any less than in the same way members of the RUC/UDR/BA (British Army) occasionally passed information to the IRA and regularly to members of various loyalist paramilitaries.”

Mr Hurst assisted John Stevens’ inquiry into security force collusion with terrorists in Northern Ireland.

The document states Lord Stevens told him that of 210 terrorist suspects he arrested, only three were not security force agents, and some worked for several agencies.

Background

The Smithwick Tribunal is examining claims that members of the Irish police or other employees of the Irish State colluded in the murders of the two most senior RUC officers to die in the Troubles. Chief Superintendent Harry Breen and Supt Robert Buchanan were shot dead while returning from a meeting at Dundalk Garda station in the Republic. The tribunal has so far heard evidence from a number of witnesses, some of whom have alleged that members of the Garda passed information to the IRA.

A MAN FROM THE DARK CORNER OF MILITARY INTELLIGENCE

Doubts about Ian Hurst’s reliability were dispelled after I published stories based on his information back in 1999.

The first, an unlikely sounding tale claiming military intelligence had doctored bullets used to shoot Gerry Adams, was immediately confirmed by the Defence Advisory Committee. After that he was arrested, and I was questioned under caution.

For a time I gave him the pseudonym Martin Ingram to obscure his identity, but now that alias has been dropped.

He was the first member of the Force Research Unit (FRU) — the dark corner of military intelligence which ran agents in terrorist groups — to speak publicly.

He had two tours of duty in Northern Ireland. Between 1982 and 1990 he was in Londonderry handling agents like Frank Hegarty, an IRA quartermaster later murdered for betraying a cache of Libyan weapons, and Willie Carlin, who got out just ahead of the execution squad.

A second tour was in Enniskillen between 1990 and 1991. There he met his wife, from a Donegal republican family. That affected his vetting and he bought himself out of the Army in 2003.

 

Penetration of the Provisionals

Mr Hurst was responsible for handling agents in the IRA and for a time had enhanced access to other agents’ reports, though not their names, on military intelligence computers. He has painted a picture of an organisation penetrated at almost every level and with its head of security, Stakeknife, working for the other side. The document says: “As a rough guide you should expect one in four PIRA volunteers to be agents of one agency or another.” Lord Stevens (above), the former Met chief, is quoted as

saying that only three out of 210 terrorist suspects he arrested in a collusion probe in Northern Ireland were not working for either the RUC, MI5 or the Army. The document claims that Hurst secretly taped a conversation with RAF Air Vice Marshal Andrew Vallance, who was quoted as telling him that the most sensitive matter was the identity of Stakeknife and his role as a British agent.

IRA agents within the Garda

The document claims that the FRU had a file on suspected rogue gardai prepared to pass information to the IRA and act as its agents. It names three people who were allegedly on the list, two in Dundalk and one in Donegal. It quotes Basil Walsh, a senior Garda officer who Mr Hurst met in 1999, as saying he was aware of one named Garda who worked for the IRA. Mr Walsh allegedly told him “that every time something was done to try and eradicate the mess something happened to intervene”. The document also claims MI5 had a network of agents with the Garda. MP Jeffrey Donaldson has named retired detective sergeant Owen Corrigan under Parliamentary privilege in the House of Commons in April 2000, as being a “rogue garda”. Mr Corrigan denies all allegations of collusion. Last week former agent Kevin Fulton claimed Corrigan was passing information to the IRA and was regarded as a “friend” of the group

Role of McGuinness in the IRA

MR Hurst once backed claims that Martin McGuinness reported to MI6, the British foreign intelligence agency. This was based on a document passed to him, and accepted by him in good faith, after he left the Army but which appears to have been a forgery. The document does not repeat that claim but it does put Mr McGuinness in a central role in the IRA. It states the IRA’s “security unit came under the operational command of Northern Command” and adds “the person in charge of that unit throughout the entire Troubles was PIRA member Mr James Martin McGuinness”. It accuses McGuinness of being “directly involved in matters of life and death for persons rightly or indeed wrongly suspected of informing on PIRA members. Mr McGuinness was also a key player in the long-term strategic strategies used by PIRA”. McGuinness has always denied such a leading role and stated that he left the IRA in the early 1970s.

Republican intelligence gathering

It is claimed that the IRA had a network of informants in public agencies such as social security offices and vehicle licensing, North and South. This echoes claims by Martin McGartland , a former RUC agent in the IRA. One section of the document reads: “PIRA was extensively penetrated at all levels, most sources of the information to PIRA were readily identified (by military intelligence) but seldom compromised.” To back up its claims that the intelligence services turned a blind eye to IRA intelligence sources, it claims that in the early 1990s a FRU agent was targeted by the IRA with the help of a social security employee who is still working in the same office. It claims that the IRA could informally “obtain information from driver licensing, social security, councils, utilities far quicker than the FRU”, especially in cross-border areas where red tape was involved in working through the RUC and Garda.

 

Stakeknife, the Army’s key agent

Stakeknife was a key military intelligence agent within the IRA, a man with a hotline of his own which gave him direct contact with dedicated handlers in an office known as the ‘rat hole’. When he called, he identified himself with a code number, but Mr Hurst learned his true identify by chance while manning the phone. Stakeknife had been caught drink-driving and gave uniformed police the hotline number in an effort to extricate himself. Hurst vouched for him, and it has been claimed that Stakeknife was Freddie Scappaticci, though Mr Scappaticci strongly denies this. The document expands on Stakeknife’s role as head of the IRA internal security. It claims he controlled IRA agents in the Garda. The most corrosive suggestion which Justice Peter Smithwick will have to consider is that officers Breen and Buchanan were allowed to die rather than risk compromising the Army’s most important agent in Ireland.

 

The web of collusion and spies

MR Hurst has frequently claimed some members of the RUC, UDR and Army colluded with terror groups. The statement portrays a wilderness of mirrors in which every organisation has the other penetrated to some degree and “all sources have a shelf life”. It talks of British agents in the Garda, Garda agents in Northern Ireland, IRA agents in the RUC and Garda and RUC agents in the IRA. It states “the fact that a Garda was passing information to the IRA did not bother me any more or any less than in the same way members of the RUC/UDR/BA (British Army) passed information to the IRA and members of various loyalist paramilitaries. It was a matter for HQNI and the RUC and way above my pay grade … in other words it was a strategic and not a tactical problem”. It concludes that none of this “registered massively on the Richter scale, it was just a fact of life, indeed it was well within the rules of our game!”

A BELFAST woman is suing British agent Freddie Scappaticci for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a child.

Court papers seen by The Irish News reveal that the IRA member is accused of assaulting the woman between 1976 and 1978. She is claiming for personal injury, loss and damages.

The woman is believed to have been a teenager at the time. It is understood the allegations were reported to police.

A PSNI spokesman said: “We do not comment on named individuals and no inference should be drawn from this.”

Details of the court action come just weeks after Scappaticci, who is believed to be the agent Stakeknife, was convicted of possessing extreme pornographic material in a London court.

The woman is also claiming damages from the PSNI chief constable and the secretary of state for the Home Department, which has responsibility for the Home Office.

Although Stakeknife is believed to have been handled by the British army, police and MI5 may also have had knowledge of his role.

The claim against the chief constable is for personal injury, loss and damages by negligence and misfeasance in public office in causing or permitting the abuse. The woman is also claiming on the grounds that police failed to investigate the abuse.

It is claimed that Scappaticci was a key member of the IRA’s internal security unit and was involved in interrogating dozens of suspected informers, some of whom were later killed.

Before Christmas Scappaticci pleaded guilty to possessing disturbing images. Westminster Magistrates Court heard that the charges related to at least 329 images, many involving animals.

Officers from Operation Kenova – set up to investigate Stakeknife – discovered images after seizing a laptop which was on a living room coffee table when they searched Scappaticci’s home last January.

Prosecution papers obtained by The Irish News revealed that Scappaticci had a history of depression and had tried to take his own life.

He later claimed he viewed extreme pornography because he was feeling depressed and suicidal.

The woman’s solicitor, Kevin Winters of KRW Law, said: “As this case touches upon matters of huge sensitivity it wouldn’t be appropriate to go into any detail or comment other than to confirm the High Court action forms part of a wider series of themed litigation against the state and other parties.”

The Ultimate Evil by Maury Terry


Secret service infiltrated paedophile group to ‘blackmail establishment’

BRITISH security services infiltrated and funded the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange in a covert operation to identify and possibly blackmail establishment figures, a Home Office whistleblower alleges.

The former civil servant has told detectives investigating the activities of paedophiles in national politics that the Metropolitan Police’s Special Branch was orchestrating the child-sex lobbying group in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

The whistleblower, who has spoken exclusively to the Sunday Express, says he was also warned off asking why such a notorious group was being handed government money.

It emerged late last year that PIE was twice gave amounts of £35,000 in Home Office funding between 1977 and 1980, the £70,000 total equivalent to over £400,000 in today’s money.

Those details surfaced only after the whistleblower highlighted his concerns to campaigning Labour MP Tom Watson and his revelations have triggered an ongoing Home Office inquiry into why the cash was given to PIE which was abolished in 1985 after a number of prosecutions.

Until now, speculation about the grant has centred on Clifford Hindley, the late Home Office manager who approved the payments. However, the whistleblower told the Sunday Express he thought higher and more sinister powers were at play.

He has given a formal statement to that effect to detectives from Operation Fernbridge, which is looking into allegations of historic sex abuse at the Elm Guest House in south-west London

PIE, now considered one of the most notorious groups of the era, had gained respectability in political circles. Its members are said to have included establishment figures, and disgraced Liberal MP Cyril Smith was a friend of founder member Peter Righton.

In 1981, Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens used Parliamentary privilege to name Sir Peter Hayman, as a member of PIE and an active paedophile. In 1983 Mr Dickens gave the Home Office a dossier of what he claimed was evidence of a paedophile network of “big, big names, people in positions of power, influence and responsibility”. The Home Office says the dossier no longer exists.

Whistleblower Mr X, whose identity we have agreed to protect, became a very senior figure in local government before retiring a few years ago. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, he was a full-time consultant in the Home Office’s Voluntary Services Unit run by Clifford Hindley.

In 1979 Mr X was asked to examine a funding renewal application for PIE, but he became concerned because the organisation’s goal of seeking to abolish the age of consent “conflicted” with the child protection policies of the Department of Health and Social Security and asked for a meeting with Mr Hindley, his immediate boss.

PIE was being funded at the request of Special Branch which found it politically useful to identify people who were paedophiles. This led me not to pursue my objections. At that time, questioning anything to do with Special Branch, especially within the Home Office, was a ‘no-no’.

“I was under the clear belief that I was being instructed to back off and that his reference to Special Branch was expected to make me to do so.

He asked for a file the Home Office kept on PIE, but his request was refused. However, he was certain then Tory Home Office Minister Tim Raison, who died in 2011, must have signed the 1980 funding application.

Mr X has given a formal written statement to the inquiry set up last year into former Home Office links with PIE but has refused to meet the inquiry in person because he fears “repercussions” under the Official Secrets Act.

Special Branch was an integral part of the intelligence service gathering intelligence on spies and political threats to the state.

Ron and Reggie Kray with Terry Spinks and Sonny Liston

Mr Spinks, a nephew of the Olympic boxer Terry Spinks

The Krays: The original black and white photograph of Ron Kray and Lord Boothby also photographed are Charlie Clark, Goodfellow (Boothby’s butler), Terry Spinks and Mr and Mrs Billie Exley. This photograph was held by Ron as blackmail over Boothby; later given to JP by Ron’s mother, Violet. Accompanying this is letter from Ron in Durham Prison stating that he has asked his mother to give John the photograph, NOW WITH a banning order from the Governor of Tangier excluding Ron from Morocco in 1966 as an ‘undesirable’
This photograph is of a dinner at The Old Society restaurant in Jermyn Street, (now the night club ‘Tramp’), in early 1964. Ron organised it as a thank-you to Boothby fr taking him to dinner at The House of Lords a few weeks earlier.
For Reggie, the good times looked set to continue. On 20 April, he married the woman he had courted for three years. 21 year-old Frances Shea. The wedding was celebrated in typical Kray style, with Rolls-Royces. David Bailey as the official photographer, celebrities such as boxer Terry Spinks in attendance and congratulatory telegrams from Judy Garland, Barbara Windsor and many others.
Terry Spinks was at Ronnie Kray’s funeral

PIE secretary Keith Harding

One of his former employees said the clockmaker had described his role for the group as “membership secretary”.

In December 1980, the BBC’s Jim’ll Fix It filmed Harding at his workshop in Islington, north London, where he fixed a music box belonging to a 13-year-old girl whose letter was shown on screen requesting the repair.

She then appeared with her younger brother in the studio alongside Harding and Savile.

The girl’s brother Dean, now in his 40s, has told BBC News the feature was “set up” by the production team who instigated the item by approaching the family.

He said: “She was asked to write that letter. The way it came about was that my uncle was asked by his then girlfriend, who was a researcher at the BBC, if anybody in the family had a musical box.

“Obviously the letter must have been done after the facts.”

GLOUCESTERSHIRE County Council was aware of historic sex offences against children by Keith Harding but had “no power” to stop him running a museum in Northleach.

Vicki Butler, deputy director for safeguarding and care at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “Mr Harding’s past offences happened outside the county more than 50 years ago and we have no power to regulate or prevent a private business being set up.

“When he became known to us in the 90s, together with the police and other partners, we carried out an investigation and took appropriate action at the time.”

According to the BBC, Mr Harding was part of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) and knew Jimmy Saville.

Worshipful Master Keith Harding


The lodge boasts of its Government Communications Headquarters heritage on its website.

“The Mercurius Lodge is known as the Spies Lodge because it was set up by GCHQ and over the years many intelligence officers have become members.

“These are people trained to find out sensitive information and yet none of them had any idea of Keith’s background and past convictions.

“They even voted him the highest honour by making him Worshipful Master.

“Keith felt the Freemasons were somewhere he finally belonged, he called them his “brotherhood”.

“When he died last year, they arranged his funeral and made sure the ceremony started at midday because the time apparently has significance within Masonic ritual.”

Harding ran the Mechanical Music Museum 10 miles away in Northleach after moving from London in 1987.

In 2013, he organised a trip to the museum for Freemasons and their families.

Remember the Jim’ll Fixit episode featuring Keith Harding? Guess who did the sinister film work outside the shop and shop window!

It was David Secrett, a trusted employee at Keith Harding’s shop. Have a guess where Secrett lived and worked in the 90s!

It was Thornham Magna.

Lord Henniker offered Righton and Alston refuge there when they fled Evesham in 1992. He employed Napier…

in senior positions teaching abroad with British Council and rans Islington’s Suffolk children’s scheme.

From what I have been hearing, it is virtually proven that Harding liked to take boys to Amsterdam.

3 separate witnesses claim Leon Brittan was a regular visitor to Harding’s shop. Brittan was said to take the back entrance .

The Paedophile Information Exchange PIE was allegedly given £70,000 by the Home Office between 1977 and 1980 – the equivalent today of about £400,000.

A former Home Office worker revealed that Jim Callaghan’s Labour government and Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative administration, which took over in 1979, may have provided funding for PIE.

The whistleblower said senior civil servant Clifford Hindley, who was head of the Home Office’s voluntary services unit, signed off a three year grant for £35,000 in 1980.

Cheltenham MP Sir Charles Irving

Sir Charles Irving was ‘blamed’ by GP Clive Froggatt, a top Tory health advisor and think tank guru for NHS reforms, as receiving supplies of diamorphine (pharmaceutical heroin), when in fact it was the GP himself who was obtaining the drug by deception for his own use.

Froggatt had claimed that he was secretly obtaining diamorphine through forged prescriptions from chemists to conceal the fact that he was treating the late MP for Cheltenham, Sir Charles Irving.
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/me…s-1593682.html

At his headline-hitting trial in 1994, he told how he had turned to drug abuse when his NHS reforms were savaged by critics.

He began writing out prescriptions for heroin – medical name diamorphine – using false names of patients who had recently died.

Froggatt was caught when a routine check of chemists’ records revealed he had obtained more than 43 grammes of the drug in just two years. When arrested, he claimed he was using the drug as a painkiller for his close friend and Tory MP for Cheltenham Sir Charles Irving, who he said was dying of AIDS and has subsquently passed away from cancer.

Sir Charles denied this. Froggatt received a suspended sentence and the case was referred to the General Medical Council.

www.thefreelibrary.com › … › December 15, 1996

Interestingly enough, one of these articles notes that Froggatt was an advisor on the Cruise/Kidman film, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’.

Dr Clive Froggatt argues that the Government must prescribe heroin if it is to stand any chance of beating the drugs problem that costs this country billions of pounds every year.

Dr Clive Froggatt was a consultant to a succession of Conservative Health Secretaries and Margaret Thatcher’s advisor on NHS reform. Dr Froggatt, who was a secret heroin addict, was forced to resign from his advisory role when he was discovered faking prescriptions to feed his habit. He argues, from a very personal perspective, that the Government must prescribe heroin if it is to stand any chance of beating the drugs problem that costs this country billions of pounds every year.

Clive Froggatt

When arrested, he claimed he was using the drug as a painkiller for his close friend and Tory MP for Cheltenham Sir Charles Irving, who he said was dying of AIDS

Clive Froggatt Clive Froggatt, a leading physician in England, and a favorite of prime minister Margaret Thatcher and a very senior government health adviser to both Margaret Thatcher and John Major, was addicted to heroin, allegedly taking up to eight fixes a day.

link

this is the doctor who has been a guru to a succession of former Health Secretaries including Ken Clarke,now Chancellor;

Virginia Bottomley, now Heritage chief;

and William Waldegrave  – special advisor Patrick Rock.

William Waldegrave, the health secretary, giving details of the two enquiries launched in the aftermath of the case, described Beck as evil. He said that the Commons had shown its support for Mr Janner.

Keith Vaz, Labour MP for Leicester East, condemned the ”cowardly attacks” on Mr Janner. Michael Latham, Tory MP for Rutland and Melton, said that Mr Janner had been the target of ”vile allegations and lies”.

link

As Beck was sentenced, William Waldegrave, the former health secretary announced two inquiries. One would investigate the selection of staff in Britain’s children’s homes. The other, chaired by Andrew Kirkwood QC which is reporting today, would find out why staff at one of Britain’s biggest social services departments failed to act on warnings which would have lead them to the discovery of a catalogue of abuse. Allegations of physical and sexual abuse were first made in 1980 – seven years after Beck started working as an officer in charge of a children’s home. They continued over the next six years, from children and social workers, and on four different occasions were passed on to police. After one investigation, police charged Beck with assault. However, he was subsequently acquitted after a crown court trial in 1982. Despite these allegations, Beck continued working at The Beeches, Leicester Forest East, where he had been officer in charge since 1978. He had spent the previous five years working at The Poplars – a home in Market Harborough – before moving to Ratcliffe Road children’s home. He eventually resigned in 1986 after he was suspended following an allegation of sexual harassment by a fellow member of staff. However he was given references which enabled him to take jobs with Brent and Hertfordshire social services. He also worked with charities.

Froggatt also worked on a Tory health service think-tank with MP David Willetts, who was forced to resign for trying to nobble a Commons committee probing sleaze.

Froggatt, an advisor”on heroin movie Eyes Wide Shut starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, publicly claims he is now “clean”.

Froggatt was brought into the Conservative fold in 1983 by Sir Norman Fowler and quickly became an adviser to the powerful Downing Street policy unit.

Froggatt developed a close friendship with Virginia Bottomley and frequently dined at her house.

Froggatt even told friends that he advised her on everything from how she enters a room to how she does her hair.

Ken Clarke once asked him to stand in for him at an Oxford Union health deb

When he had an idea, he rang Tory ministers and they listened.

Child protection campaigners have called for the official inquiry into historical abuse to examine the extent of Harding’s business and political links.

He was convicted of indecent assault against four children aged eight and nine in the late 1950s and was a “schedule 1” offender – meaning his convictions remained on his police file for life.

But he was later given the Freedom of the City of London and became a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, meeting business and political figures at the height of his career.

The Corporation of London said Harding’s vetting for the Freedom of the City was carried out by his livery company.

William Keith Harding born  Dec 1931 (17 years older than his wife)

Born in Nottinghamshire, Keith was educated at Oakley Hall in Cirencester before moving on to Haileybury College in Hertfordshire. He had originally hoped to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a doctor, but instead took an engineering degree and became a pilot officer at RAF Cranwell.

It was in London he met his now former wife and her three children. After marrying, they went on to have two children of their own together.

In 1987, Keith and his wife and children moved to Northleach and Keith Harding’s World of Mechanical Music was born. Cliff Burnettmoved with them and was his business partner for 50 years. After Cliff’s death three years ago, John said Keith was “never the same again”.

Following his move to Northleach, Keith threw himself into everything he could in the community. He was an active member (and archivist) of Cotswold Canal Trust, a member of Cirencester Church Choir and Cirencester Male Voice Choir.

Keith and his wife divorced 15 years after moving to the Cotswolds and soon after, a chance meeting led him to meet John.

Trying his hand at many other professions, Keith also spent time as a Dominican monk, a librarian and a typist.

He moved to London in his mid-twenties and, through a friend at the British Museum, was introduced to time pieces and clocks.

He began his journey by trading antiques on Portobello Road.

The pair became civil partners in 2007 and had a ceremony at the Swindon and Cricklade railway.

RICHARD NEEDHAM (1) Sir Richard Needham was PPS to NI SecState James Prior between 1983 and 1984. He served under Thatcher and Major as a Under-Secretary of State for NI between 1985 and 1992. He was the longest serving British government Northern Ireland minister.

RICHARD NEEDHAM (2) Although a coveted speaker, Needham, a Privy Council member and Hon. Doctor of Laws at Ulster University, was a man of few words when it came to answering questions about the Kincora boys’ home in Belfast.

RICHARD NEEDHAM (3) Keith Harding was a close friend of high-profile Thatcher-era paedophiles such as Jimmy Savile, Leon Brittan, Cyril Smith and Jeremy Thorpe. They are all said to have paid frequent visits to Harding’s shop near Cheltenham.

RICHARD NEEDHAM (4) PIE member Keith Harding was a director and archivist of the Cotswold Canals Trust for many years. He became a member in 1990 and stood on its council from 1994 until 2011, even to be honoured with his own memorial bench.

RICHARD NEEDHAM (7) Needham and the Silly Cow who stole kids’ milk: Paramilitaries listening in to Needham chatting with his German-born wife Sigrid Thiessen-Gairdner recorded him referring to MT as a ‘silly cow’. I wonder whether words like Kincora and PIE were ever recorded?

RICHARD NEEDHAM (8) Charles Irving MP for Cheltenham is listed as a patron of Elm Guest House child brothel He was MP when PIE man Harding was running his shop in Cheltenham. Irving’s charity donated to Harding’s and Needham’s Cotswolds Canals Trust.

Keith Harding, former membership secretary of the Paedophile Information Exchange (Pie) was made Worshipful Master of the Mercurius Lodge in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, in 2011.

The child molester, who died last summer, presided over ceremonies and rituals from an ornate throne.

Harding was convicted of an indecent assault against four children aged eight and nine in 1958 and classified a Schedule-1 offender, which meant the offence remained on his criminal record all his life.

His name was also on a list of about 400 Pie members seized by police in 1984, the year the organisation disbanded.

Cirencester Male Voice Choir

CIRENCESTER Male Voice Choir could be excused for getting pre-performance nerves as they prepare to perform to a 5,000-strong audience at the Royal Albert Hall.

The choir, which was formed just three years ago, will perform with 14 other choirs from England, Scotland and Wales at the London Welsh Festival of Male Choirs on Saturday, October 13.

Founder Phil Kerton said it would be a proud moment for Cirencester.

When the group was first formed in 2009 it had just 12 members, but since then it has gone from strength to strength and now has 40 singers, aged between 16 and 85, who take part in concerts and competitions all over the country.

Choir member Keith Harding said he would not be nervous about performing next week. “I took part in the first Night of1,000 Voices concert at the Royal Albert Hall about 25 years ago. It was great fun setting a new record,” he said

Peter Righton – New Barns school for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties in Gloucestershire.

Solicitor Andrew Dutton, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, was on the EGH list ?

Solicitor who netted pounds 200,000 of clients’ money struck off.

A dishonest solicitor who creamed off pounds 200,000 of clients’ money to prevent his home being repossessed was struck off by the Solicitor’s Disciplinary Tribunal yesterday.

Andrew Dutton, aged 55, from Worcester, also put a major murder trial in jeopardy after he was granted legal aid for representing a client despite it being illegal for him to do so.

The Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal in central London was told yesterday that Dutton had been a partner at John Martlew and Company in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

The Law Society carried out an investigation of the firm’s accounts in May 1998 and discovered a number of irregularities.

David Shaw, an investigating and compliance officer for the society, told the hearing Dutton misused funds while investing money on behalf of an American company, CHA, and a Russian firm, DMC, which were looking to buy a Russian mine.

He failed to tell either that this created a conflict of interest and simply continued to invest for them both.

‘Mr Dutton was then granted power of attorney over the Russian company and they released seven bills of exchange, valued at $1 million each. These were put into the account of a close friend of Mr Dutton’s in New Jersey, known as Mr C,’ said Mr Shaw.

The hearing was told that pounds 80,000 of this sum was placed in Dutton’s own bank account, a further pounds 30,000 went into another account and Dutton took pounds 10,000 in cash.

Mr Shaw said considerable sums of money were transferred through Mr C’s Abbey National account in Cheltenham and eventually they ended up in Dutton’s account.

Mr Shaw said Mr C had pounds 100,000 in his account at one point which was used to pay off Dutton’s mortgage after his home was threatened with repossession. Cash was also used to pay off a substantial overdraft.

Dutton’s partners at John Martlew and Company in Cheltenham were completely unaware of his actions and had no part in any of the transactions.

The tribunal also heard how Dutton was banned from practising as a fully-fledged solicitor in February, 1999, but despite it being illegal for him to practice on his own, he set up Dutton and Company and made illegal claims for legal aid payments in his work as a duty solicitor.

After applying for permission from the Law Society, he was employed as a consultant under supervision at the local law firm R A Eggleton and Company.

During this time, Dutton applied for legal aid for a client on a murder charge despite being barred from doing so.

Solicitor Roger Eggleton said: ‘He was representing the client and came into my office one day and said ‘I’ve hit the jackpot’.’

Striking him off, tribunal chairman Barrie Marsh said: ‘Mr Dutton is a very dishonest man who has misled clients and practised illegally.’

He was also ordered to pay the ‘substantial’ costs of the case although no amount was given.

The most infamous paedophile from Gloucester is Fred West

Fred West

Serial killer Rose West’s nephew abducted and raped 12-year-old girl

6th November 2017

Sick Steven Letts, 38, plied the young girl with cocaine, cannabis and vodka.He abducted and had sex with the child after they met in the street and she asked him for a cigarette.The girl was with her support worker but went off with Letts after he offered her a joint in Gloucester city centre on March 6 this year.It’s the same city his aunt Rose and husband Fred tortured and murdered at least 12 people – with nine of the bodies discovered buried more than 20 years later.The support worker said she warned Letts the girl, who lives in care, was underage.

Rose West was born Rosemary Letts in Northam in Devon to William Letts and Daisy Fuller.

She is now an inmate at HMP Low Newton, Brasside, Durham, after being convicted of ten murders in 1995.

Are Fred West’s first victims buried in a Glasgow allotment? Hollywood producer urges police to reopen case amid claims the killer’s murder spree began in Scotland in the early 1960s

  • Paul Pender, a Hollywood producer, wants to reopen the Fred West murder file
  • He is urging police to search a Glasgow allotment for bodies from the 1960s 
  • Police Scotland said they will look at all evidence regardless of the time passed

Fred West may have murdered many more innocent people and buried them in an allotment in Glasgow, it has been claimed.

The serial killer and his deranged wife Rose murdered, raped and dismembered young women, including two of their own daughters.

But Fred, who killed himself before being brought to trial on twelve murder charges, is now believed to have killed many more.

Hollywood producer Paul Pender was tipped off about more victims at a family funeral by a man who worked with West’s first wife Rena who Fred later killed.

The former abattoir employee told Mr Pender to investigate further.

 

Serial killer Fred West killed himself before he could be brought to justice. It is now believed he may have had many more victims in Glasgow 

 Fred West is known to have killed at least 12 women and ran over a young boy in Glasgow before moving to Gloucester

 Serial killer couple Rose West (left) and Fred West (right) killed girls in their home. a Hollywood producer named Paul Pender believes more victims are buried in Glasgow 

 Serial killer couple Rose West (left) and Fred West (right) killed girls in their home. A Hollywood producer named Paul Pender believes more victims are buried in Glasgow

As a result the screenwriter believes there are more bodies buried in an allotment which West used in the early 1960s.

He said there is an ‘inarguable’ case to crack open the West file once more because we ‘owe it to the victims’.

 Paul Pender is calling on police to re-open the Fred West file and investigate an old allotment site in Glasgow

Mr Pender believes high tech scanning equipment could be used on the ground.

Fred and Rose were finally arrested in 1994 and nine bodies were found at the house of horrors in Gloucester.

The rapes and horrifying killings took place between 1967 and 1987. Rose West was jailed for life for ten murders while Fred killed himself before court where he was charged 12 counts of murder.

Pender is also calling for officers to look into the death of Henry Feeney, a three-year-old in Glasgow’s Castlemilk district.

West ran him over in an ice-cream truck and at the time it was said to be an accident.

But it is now believed West lured him to a quiet spot and ran him over on purpose by telling him to retrieve a ball from bushes, before reversing into him and killing him.

Fred West and Rena Costello, later Rena West, moved to Gloucester but after difficulties in the marriage Rena fled back to Scotland.

When she returned to Gloucester to find her daughter – who was not Fred’s child – she was killed by West who had already killed the girl named Charmaine.

Police Scotland said: ‘We will investigate all reports regardless of what time has passed and would encourage anyone who has information to come forward.’

THE TRAGIC VICTIMS OF THE HOUSE OF HORRORS MURDERERS

Although Fred West was convicted of killing 12 women and Rose 10, the pair are thought to have killed up to 20 more.

One victim who was almost certainly killed by West was his former girlfriend Anne McFall who like the others, was found in a shallow grave with body parts missing. West denied it.

The waped pair used whips to torture their victims as well as their own children. 

Fred West committed suicide by hanging himself in a prison cell in January 1995 — before he could stand trial for the murders.

Rose West is still a prisoner at HMP Low Newton in Durham, having been handed a rare ‘whole life tariff’ for her part in the killings. 

Confirmed victims include:

Charmaine West, eight: Fred West’s stepdaughter from his first marriage, Charmaine was murdered by Rose in 1971 while Fred was in prison.

Rena Costello, 27: Charmaine’s mother Rena, Fred’s first wife, was murdered when she arrived to pick up her daughter Charmaine in August 1971. With Charmaine already dead, it is thought Fred killed her to avoid an investigation.

Lynda Gough, 20: Miss Gough was a lodger in the West’s home and was killed in April 1973. Rose told her mother she had moved to Weston-super-Mare.

Carol Ann Cooper, 15: The teenager disappeared while walking home from the cinema to her Worcester children’s home in November 1973. Her remains were found buried in the Wests’ garden.

Lucy Partington, 21: After spending Christmas with her family in Cheltenham, Miss Partington disappeared after leaving to catch a bus. The student was the cousin of novelist Martin Amis and the sister of author Marian Partington.

Therese Siegenthaler, 22: The South London student was killed in April 1974 after disappearing while attempting to hitch-hike to Ireland.

Shirley Hubbard, 15: One of the Wests’ youngest victims, she disappeared on her way home from college in Droitwich. When her body was discovered, her head was completely covered in tape with a rubber tube placed in her mouth to allow her to breathe.

Juanita Mott, 18: Miss Mott, a former lodger at 25 Cromwell Street, was living in Newent when she vanished.

Shirley Robinson, 19: Another lodger, Miss Robinson was killed in 1978 after becoming pregnant with West’s child.

Alison Chambers, 17: The teenager disappeared in August 1979 and her remains were later found beneath the patio at 25, Cromwell Street.

Heather West, 17: Repeatedly raped by her father, Heather complained to friends about the abuse and was murdered by her parents in a bid to keep her quiet.

Anthony Milsom, a paedophile from Hull, who is alleged to have stayed at the property, later moved to Newtown, Powys, where he was convicted of a string of sex offences dating back to the 1990s, including 21 counts of making indecent photographs of children and five counts of indecent assault on a girl when she was aged between 4 and eight. He was jailed indefinitely at Mold Crown Court in March 2011, but six months later appeal court judges reduced his sentence to three-and-a-half years.
