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.

Twiss happily agreed to meet me for dinner the next day to continue our conversation. But he cried off at the last minute, texting: ‘I told you all I can remember. I am not willing to defame the dead because it will only hurt their families.’

Roddam Twiss  – Abuser with a long history of scams and assaults

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.

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!”

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

  • Smith allegedly also had an on-again, off-again sexual relationship with Ronnie 
  • Writer Clare Campbell claims Smith was an MI5 secret agent in new research
  • Smith escaped to Sydney, Australia, after ending his association with the Krays

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.”

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.

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.

2 July 2006

BRITAIN’S most dangerous paedophile, Lenny Smith, has died of AIDS in a secret prison unit – taking to the grave the terrible secret of just how many children he abused and murdered.
The 51-year-old pervert – jailed for 10 years in 1992 for sickening sex attacks on a six-year-old boy – was a member of a sadistic paedophile ring that preyed on children and murdered five boys in the mid-1980s.

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”.

Daily Mirror, 13th May 1989 (part ocr)

‘…THIS is Lennie Smith who led 14-year-old Jason Swift to his depraved homosexual killers.

He introduced Jason to four other perverts who killed him in a horrific orgy after promising him £5 each, the Old Bailey was told.

Two of the four told police Smith was with them during the attack on Jason.

But Smith is  still  free and  the  Daily  Mirror tracked him down.

The four — Sidney Cooke, 60, Robert Oliver, 36, Leslie Bailey, 35, who was nicknamed Catweazle because of his wild looks, and Steven Barrell 27 — were found guilty at the Old Bailey yesterday of manslaughter and raping Jason.

They will be sentenced on Monday.

Last night they were in solitary confinement — to protect them against attacks from other prisoners.

Smith was arrested and charged with Jason’s murder. But he did not, face

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 MEHROTRA; MICHAEL MATES; ASIL NADIR

Vishal Mehrotra (above) is believed to have been murdered by the VIP child abuse ring that contained top UK politicians and top people in the UK military and security services.

Vishal’s body was found 200 metres away from the home of the top UK politician Michael Mates.

Michael Mates

“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 the Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency of Petersfield / East Hampshire from 1974 to 2010.

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. 

The £29m riddle: Why DID Asil Nadir come back? 

“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.”

Miss Forsyth’s conviction for handling stolen cash was overturned on appeal

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.

5. Anonymous comments:

“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.

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

“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.

WALES: Child – grooming pervert given life ban from funfairs and having camera

A NOVELTY shop pervert was yesterday given a lifetime funfair ban and barred from using cameras to stop him preying on kids

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]

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.

”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.”

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.

“In 1987 a Cheshire MP, Mr Peter Morrison, was taken off a train in Crewe following an allegation of abuse of a young male on the train. The MPs name is on the list of those involved with North Wales Child abuse.”

Jonathan Aitken is godfather to Diane Abbott’s daughter.

 

Diane Abbott of NCCl

 

After university, Abbott entered the civil service, where she worked at the Home Office, going on to join the NCCL

 

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’.

Gisbourne House (pictured above) where children were being abused on an industrial scale

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* – 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.

Brian Tanner, left, and Dennis King, right, outside Chelmsford Crown Court in April 1990. Picture: Anglia Press Agency. A MAN convicted of abusing boys as part of a Shoebury ’sex ring’ in the late 1980s had several prior convictions, the Yellow Advertiser can reveal.
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.
