Children’s rights activist Peter Newell jailed for abuse

Feb 16 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Image result for "savile" + "dj" "

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cassandra Cogno‏ @CassandraCogno

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

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

 

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

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

 


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

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

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

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

How childcare was hijacked

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Peter Newell:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

17 FEB 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dalglish had a 30-year career with the UN and was arrested at his house in Nepal (pictured)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11 June 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Conference summary

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

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

7 Sept 2018

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

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

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

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

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

April 22, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The house Peter Dalglish built in Nagarkot, Nepal.

Nathan VanderKlippe/The Globe and Mail

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Former Senior United Nations Official Facing Pedophilia Charges in Nepal

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dalglish was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2017.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Save the Children inquiry over response to harassment claims

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

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

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

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

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

19 Apr 2018

  • Sir Alan said there was an urgent need to rebuild confidence in the sector

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The business has been good to Parker. He has a collection of Henry Moore sculptures, owns a stretch of the Tay in Scotland for salmon fishing and is estimated to be worth more than £100 million. Brunswick represents Charter, the engineering firm that has agreed to a £1.5 billion takeover approach from rival Colfax.


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

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

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

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

Some of the images downloaded by 30-year-old Guleid Abdulkarim even featured toddlers

17 Oct 2016

A House of Lords researcher who used a parliamentary laptop to download more than 1,000 indecent images and movies of children has been jailed.

Guleid Abdulkarim had more than 500 images which fall within the most vile category.

His sick images even included footage featuring toddlers, which was found on his laptop in his locker at a gay sauna.

The 30-year-old even recorded footage of him and other men performing a sex act on themselves and discussing child abuse in a chatroom.

He viewed some of the images while in the member’s offices and admitted downloading and sharing the material at Southwark crown court.

Abdulkarim showed no trace of emotion as he was led to the cells.

Prosecutor John Evison said: “This all came to light because parliament carried out a review.

“The defendant was employed by a member of the House of Lords – he was employed as a researcher/assistant.

Parliamentary authorities uncovered Guleid Abdulkarim’s stash while performing a routine review of computer systems

Parliament itself carried out a review and found some evidence of indecent images on a parliamentary server and they passed the information to the paedophile unit.”

Officers later contacted Abdulkarim and he met with them outside a cafe in Kennington where he was asked if he had accessed indecent images and replied “no, just porn”.

He then informed the officers that the laptop was actually in a locked room in a sauna called ‘The Locker Room on Cleaver Street.

Abdulkarim’s locker was searched and the laptop containing most of the images was found and he was taken into custody.

In total 1,082 indecent images and movies were found, including 503 category A images which can include children being raped.

Abdulkarim even shared some of the images with others on sharing site Zoomroom, which Mr Evison said would not usually have been able to trace.

The researcher was ‘actively involved in the network’ of paedophiles, a court heard

“Mr Abdulkarim for whatever reason used recording software to record hours and hours of footage of what he has been doing on Zoom.

Abdulkarim was said to be “actively involved in the network” of paedophiles.

A further laptop and three hard drives have also now been seized from Abdulkarim but the content of them has yet to be accessed by police.

Abdulkarim, of no fixed address, admitted four counts of making indecent images of children and one of distributing indecent images of children.

He was jailed for for a mere two years and eight months.

Emma Nicholson, within a decade, had persuaded Margaret Thatcher to make her the party’s vice-chairman (for women), and in 1987 she was elected as MP for Torridge and West Devon.

Her background:

EMMA NICHOLSON was born in Farnham in 1941, the third daughter in a family of wealthy Hampshire landowners and gin distillers. Her father was Sir Godfrey Nicholson, a Tory baronet, her mother the daughter of a Scottish earl.

Her ancestors – including three uncles, 10 cousins, a grandfather and three great-grandfathers – had sat in Parliament since the 17th century. Emma was soon following her father on constituency visits….

Nicholson’s mother already worked for charity, and her family were intensely religious. In addition, Nicholson gradually began to realise she was disabled herself: her eyesight condemned her to milk-bottle glasses and, more seriously, she could hardly hear. Aged 16, after hard years at a convent boarding school in Wantage, she was officially diagnosed as deaf: “Home life became a source of despair to me.”

Her family expected her to marry and have children. Nicholson did not want to be passive: she obtained a hearing aid and considered law – but was dissuaded by the convent’s senior nun; she tried being a cook – and gave 200 balloonists salmonella; she tried Central Office. Then, in 1963, she passed the entrance exam for ICL, a computer company.

For the next 13 years she gave herself to primitive keyboards and trips to fix circuits in sweaty African countries. She was a software designer, a systems analyst, a management consultant – but not a prospective wife. “Lots of men wanted to marry me,” she said once (She was 5’10”, slim and – thanks to her deafness – now possessed of a booming, commanding voice). “But I’ve always been too busy.”

In 1974 she turned her energies to charity, joining Save The Children.

The Curious Case of the Baroness of Winterbourne and Iraq

PM David Cameron has recently appointed Baroness Emma Nicholson of Winterbourne as his Trade Envoy to Iraq. The Baroness described Iraqi economy as “vibrant and booming “, urging the UK to make “the best of the enormous opportunities Iraq offers us”. The pre invasion high profile of Nicholson on Iraq was related to human rights, so what does this switch to being the Prime Minister’s trade envoy mean?  And is there a link between the old and new roles?

As to be expected, Nicholson made no mention of the massive human rights abuses in Iraq, documented by international bodies, or in its sectarian policy and bombardment of cities. No mention also, even in terms of regret or remediation, of the human cost , long passed hundreds of thousands,  caused by the US –UK invasion and occupation.  And on trade, no mention, even as hope for improvement, of the institutionalised corruption of the regime which made Iraq ranks 171st among 177 nations on the list of corruption index.

One might argue, why should she?  The Baroness, after all, is a politician cashing on behalf of her political party and government.  Well, this could have been acceptable have the politician we’re talking about is not Emma Nicholson who for many decades presented herself to the world as the mother Teresa of human rights, defending in particular, Iraqis’ human rights under Saddam’s rule.   Until 2003, Nicholson was known as one of the most outspoken British politicians against Saddam Hussain (even Tony Blair was not a competition) defending  relentlessly the Human Rights of the Sukan Al-ahwar (Marsh Arabs of Iraq)  and the Kurds in  Halabja.

Nicholson spared no action to defend Iraqis’ “human rights”, from calling in 1988 for the establishment of an International Criminal Tribunal to try Saddam and his key officials for genocide to establishing a charity named after an Iraqi boy who she adopted, from writing books and articles to speaking tours in UK and US. Nicholson was a fierce advocate of the war and occupation not for oil and business contracts but, we were told, to; “free the Iraqi people from terrible tyranny” and British people “should be proud of the important part that we played in freeing the Iraqi people from their decades-long misery.”

Executive Chairman of the Iraq Britain Business Council outspoken  on how to“ fight for lucrative contracts “ and  how to compete  for  mega defence contracts with a brutal sectarian corrupt regime while tongue-tied on the human rights of the same people she claimed to defend before the invasion. Is The Baroness’s deafening silence on the well documented crimes and human rights violations in the last ten years,  eight years of them under Nouri Al Malik’s regime related to her appointment as an Honorary Adviser to Nouri Al Maliki, in the field of Health?

Iraqi Journalist Ali Abdul Amir Ajam, a long opponent of Saddam and an admirer of Nicholson’s work, questioned in an article titled “what a low price for a baroness” her silence at a time when Iraqi doctors are  targeted or forced to leave the country. “Today, nothing worries the Baroness about Iraq, but the promotion of its leaders and their achievements in reconstruction, and the security and stability for the major oil companies. Today, the Baroness who used to be obsessed by Freedom for Iraq has nothing to do with the suffering of Iraqis and the violations of their basic human rights”, he wrote.

Interview: Emma Nicholson

By Riddell, Mary | New Statesman (1996), September 20, 1996

What is it, you wonder, in Emma Nicholson that inspires not only the lexicon of abuse which accompanies every frequent foray into the limelight but the extraordinarily personal nature of the criticism? There is nothing in her off-duty appearance (sweatshirt, leggings and red towelling socks) even to hint at the skimpily-clad siren of dinner-party legend. Why did she not get married until the age of 45?” asked a political commentator, nastily. She must have scared off more men than Medusa.”

A childhood victim of abuse by a family friend, she was lightly educated at St Mary’s, Wantage, and the Royal Academy of Music

An incredible journey ends in bitterness

16 May 1998

A witness, he claims, to terrible crimes, Katiza signalled his intention to testify against Mrs Mandela when she was charged with the murder of Stompie Moeketsi Seipei in May 1991. Badly beaten by “Winnie’s boys”, Katiza was spirited out of South Africa by ANC sympathisers days before the trial. He fetched up in a Zambian jail, under orders from President Kenneth Kaunda, the ANC’s friend.

Emma Nicholson, then a Conservative MP, taken an interest. She secured his freedom and passage to Britain, where she persuaded the authorities to provide legal sanctuary. In London she put him up at her home and paid for him to learn to read and write. Also, at his request, she arranged for a book to be published – Katiza’s Journey, written by the journalist Fred Bridgland.

The book is the reason the two have fallen out. In interviews last week with the Independent on Sunday they gave their versions. He says she reneged on a promise to give him the copyright of the book, which she owns under powers of attorney he granted in the summer of 1995. He also says she told him she would only grant his request for the book’s copyright if he paid her pounds 50,000 – according to him, the amount she says she spent on him since securing his release.

She denies having sought money from him or made any profit from the book. She also says she means to give Katiza the copyright, but not yet.

..now she is taking advantage of me. Now I see there was something behind it. But she did not say that at the time. She says now that if I pay the expenses, the pounds 50,000, then I get the copyright. She is playing a game, that never was the agreement. The agreement I had with you, I told her, is that you help me out for nothing, as you told the United Nations.”

Katiza accusing her of bad faith and seeking to control him “like a child”. Mr Bridgland describes her as “cruel” for “letting down” Katiza.

Nicholson’s African affair
Nicholson took the Sonos and Mrs Tshabalala under her wing and – beneath the TV lights and before the international press in the foyer of the TRC hall – publicly promised that, if the South African justice system did not prosecute Winnie Mandela for her role in the suspected murders of Lolo Sono and Siboniso Tshabalala, she would bring a private prosecution. For good measure, Nicholson had also had herself photographed with the hapless and widely misused Joyce Seipei, mother of Stompie. “It was pouring with rain,” Baroness Nicholson wrote in the Sunday Times of 6 December 1997. “Outside the hall I saw, on a patch of grass, a woman whose face bore deep sorrow: Stompie Seipei’s mother. I offered her sympathy and friendship should she wish to mount a private prosecution against Winnie. We moved on to find the parents of Lolo Sono, another victim. His father, Nicodemus, spoke English well. It was agreed that we would go for it.”
Over lunch last week in Johannesburg, I asked Nicodemus Sono how Baroness Nicholson had followed up on her promise to prosecute Winnie Mandela. “I never heard from her again,” said Nicodemus. “She gave us her telephone numbers, her country house [a rambling former rectory on the edge of Dartmoor] and her London number. I tried to phone her many times, but I could not get through to her.”
“The whole thing begins with hope, and when the hope disappears you get disappointed. You try to keep the hope alive, but the hope about Emma Nicholson is not alive now.” I found it easy to sympathise with Nicodemus, for at the time of the TRC hearings my own relationship with Emma Nicholson, which had been positive and constructive, was unravelling fast and would lead to tears all round.
The Archer connection WHAT is the thread that unites Jeffrey Archer, Baroness Emma Nicholson, Katiza Cebekhulu and a former ANC bodyguard turned Portsmouth care assistant? Animosity between Archer and Nicholson can be traced to the time when both were senior members of the Tory party. After John Major gave Archer a peerage, Nicholson joined the Lib- Dems. When Archer was sentenced to four years for perjury, Nicholson prompted a police investigation into the alleged disappearance of millions of pounds from Archer’s charity, Simple Truth. Consequently, Archer was detained for an extra three months in a medium security prison. Only after the allegations were proved unfounded was he moved to an open prison. Archer is thought to be seeking revenge on Nicholson. Using data protection laws he has demanded that she hand over all papers and computer files related to her allegation, perhaps as a prelude to legal action. In an intriguing sideshow, Archer’s friends say a separate action is planned against Nicholson in relation to Katiza’s Journey, a sensational account of Winnie Mandela’s life by former Scotsman diplomatic editor Fred Bridgland. Eric Vawser, a former Conservative constituency chairman, who has described Archer as an old friend and Nicholson as “ a sh* t” has befriended Katiza Cebekhulu, who believes Nicholson could still owe him royalties from the book. Nicholson had rescued Cebekhulu from prison in Zambia and brought him to Britain. Cebekhulu was a bodyguard of Winnie Mandela who said he had witnessed her stab Stompie Moeketsi. Cebekhulu and Nicholson have since fallen out. She insists there is no outstanding sum owed to Cebekhulu.

DISGRACED parliamentary candidate Paul Diggett is facing expulsion from the Labour Party and a possible jail sentence after he used an MP’s computer to trawl the internet for under-age girls.

Diggett, who stood for Labour as a Parliamentary candidate for Cheadle in 1997, was a researcher to Labour MP James Purnell, 34, a close ally of Tony Blair.

Diggett pleaded guilty to four charges of making and distributing indecent pictures and pseudo photographs of children between February and October 2002.

Paul Diggett downloaded images of children being raped. Paul Diggett was not only a Labour man but worked as a School governor, the favourite job for PIE affiliates.

News from Sept 30 2016

Former Labour cabinet minister James Purnell will be unveiled as the BBC’s new £300,000 a year radio chief today.

With overall responsibility for BBC radio’s editorial output, Purnell’s elevation has triggered concerns among some Tory MPs about impartiality.

As well as having been a member of a Labour government, Purnell has twice been an advisor to Tony Blair and is a former Labour councillor in Islington (where else?).

Media Darling: James Purnell (pictured) was undoubtedly bright but many Labour MPs loathed him

Ex-Labour whip Helen Jones:

…shortly after I became a whip, I was told that I was going to the Department for Work and Pensions, where James Purnell was Secretary of State. He was a media darling, thought of by the London press as one of the ‘intellectuals’ of the Government, an image which he assiduously cultivated.

He had come into Parliament on what MPs scathingly referred to as ‘the assisted places scheme’. Having worked for Tony Blair, he was sent on secondment to work for Tom Pendry, who was due to retire as the MP for Stalybridge and Hyde.

James was undoubtedly bright and had the irritating habit of always looking over your shoulder when he spoke to you, in case someone more important came along.

Many Labour MPs loathed him and instinctively distrusted any legislation he might bring forward.

My job was to keep an eye on him and to try to head off trouble.

Keith Vaz will not stand for re-election

10 Nov 2019

Labour’s Keith Vaz, who was suspended from the Commons after he was found to have “expressed willingness” to purchase cocaine for others, will not be standing for re-election.

Mr Vaz, who has been MP for Leicester East for 32 years, said in a statement he was retiring from Parliament.

He said it had been “an honour and a privilege” to serve his constituency.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he had “made a substantial and significant contribution to public life”.

Labour MP Keith Vaz facing six-month Commons suspension

28 Oct 2019

Labour MP Keith Vaz is facing suspension from the Commons for six months after he was found to have “expressed willingness” to purchase cocaine for others.

Recommending suspension, the Commons Standards Committee said the finding represented a “very serious breach” of the House code of conduct for MPs.

It said that by failing to co-operate fully with the Commons inquiry process, Mr Vaz had shown “disrespect for the House’s standards system” and caused “significant damage” to the reputation and integrity of the Commons as a whole.

The Standards Committee has published its first Report of the 2019-20 parliamentary session, entitled “Keith Vaz”.

Read it here:


 

Bercow Uses Personal Veto to Block Vaz Investigation

We applied under the Freedom of Information Act to get papers relating to Mr Vaz’s trips abroad.

Clerks raised concerns – denied by the Leicester MP – that Mr Vaz had not abided by all the rules for trips. We wanted to know if those concerns ever become formal complaints.

If they did, did the liaison committee, which controls this process, do anything about it? This is clearly an area where, one could argue, the Freedom of Information Act should bite.

If the administration of MPs’ expenses is not covered by privilege, why should the administration of committee trips be? MPs are involved – but they oversaw expenses too. Could knowing which travel agent booked tickets for MPs be a route to power for a would-be tyrant? What is the threat to free speech?

Some months ago, Mr Bercow personally made the argument that this paperwork was all covered by privilege. But I looked forward to a tribunal when this could be tested.

A personal veto

Normally, this sort of determination can be referred to the Information Commissioner and then to the tribunals and courts to judge whether that finding is fair. My judgment is, if they did that, I had a reasonable chance of winning.

I suspect Mr Bercow agreed. That would explain why he has now used an unusual personal power to block any appeals.

This week, I was notified he has issued a “certificate” under section 34(3) of the Freedom of Information Act. This is, in effect, a personal release veto.

These sorts of vetos are supposed to be used sparingly – an emergency reserve power to guard sacred spaces if courts get it wrong.

That is because their use means I have no rights of appeal. The Information Commissioner’s view is that, since the certificate is genuine, that is the the end of the matter. Any appeal to the tribunals will automatically be discarded. I can ask a judge to review his decision, but it would entail looking at a decision taken by a parliamentary officer. That would hit privilege from another direction.

The net result is that the Speaker, who denies bullying, has made an order to hide information about the behaviour of his close personal friend, Keith Vaz, a man who also denies bullying – supposedly to protect MPs’ freedom of speech.

And then he has gone out of his way to use a personal veto to make sure no-one could even consider reviewing that questionable decision.

You can understand why staff are so suspicious about whether MPs will ever let themselves be judged by outsiders when it comes to bullying and harassment.

John Bercow invokes parliamentary privilege to block BBC Newsnight’s freedom of information query over Keith Vaz bullying claims

Labour declined to investigate bullying complaint against Valerie Vaz

17 October 2018

The shadow cabinet minister leading Labour’s response to the Westminster bullying scandal has herself been spoken to by her party leadership after a bullying complaint, the New Statesman has learned.

Valerie Vaz, the shadow leader of the House of Commons, was met by Jeremy Corbyn’s office and that of Nick Brown, the Labour chief whip, after a former member of her Westminster staff complained that they had been subject to workplace bullying while employed by Vaz in 2012. She denies the allegations.

The New Statesman understands that the complainant also contacted Laura Cox’s inquiry into bullying and harassment in parliament to raise the same concerns. Vaz led Labour’s response to an urgent question on the report on Tuesday.

In a letter to the complainant in August, seen by the NS, Labour said it would not pursue any formal investigation or disciplinary action against Vaz on the grounds that its historical nature would make it difficult to judge fairly.

The party’s Head of Complaints wrote: “The Labour Party has not codified a strict time limit on historic investigations but we have considered your case and believe the passage of time means it will be difficult to conclude a case fairly. Therefore we will not be taking formal disciplinary action.”

She added: “Valerie Vaz has been met by [the] Leader’s Office and the Chief Whip’s Office following your complaint, to be reminded of her requirements as an employer under the Labour Party Code of Conduct.

“It has been decided in this case that there will not be an investigation into the complaint and no further action taken. The option of complaint via the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards remains an option to you.”

While the Standards Commissioner is able to investigate complaints dating back seven years, the process is ultimately overseen by the MPs on the Commons Committee on Standards.

Parliament’s new independent complaints and grievances procedure, introduced in July, has no MP oversight but cannot investigate claims that date to before the start of the 2017 parliament. Vaz left the cross-party group that oversaw its development in January 2018.

In her report on bullying and harassment in parliament, released on Monday, Cox recommended that the new grievance procedures be given the power to investigate historical allegations.

Labour responded to the complaint against Vaz before that recommendation was made, noting: “The ICGP agreed by the House of Commons in July 2018 selected “the start of this Parliament for the retrospective application of investigations under the Scheme” on the advice of Tom Linden QC that “an investigation of a complaint will be more difficult the further into the past you go.”

However, in the event that Cox’s recommendation was adopted, the complaint against Vaz would be admissible under the new procedure. Asked about the report today, a spokesman for Jeremy Corbyn said Labour was pushing for the issue of historical allegations to be “properly addressed”.

Vaz has avoided explicitly endorsing the recommendations made in Cox’s report and has instead promised to “look seriously” at their detail. Responding after its publication on Monday, she said: “Sexual harassment and bullying must not be tolerated in any workplace. Some of the accounts in this report are truly shocking.

“The House of Commons has recently passed an independent complaints process to deal with cases of bullying, sexual harassment and victimisation under the supervision of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.

“Labour thanks Dame Laura Cox QC DBE for her report and will look seriously at the detail of the recommendations. We will continue to work on a cross-party basis to tackle this and ensure new procedures are as robust and effective as possible in order to protect everyone working in and visiting the House of Commons.”

A spokesperson for Vaz said: “Valerie vigorously denies these allegations, which are vindictive and defamatory, and is committed to tackling bullying and harassment in Westminster, which has gone unchallenged for too long.”

A Labour Party spokesperson said: “The Labour Party takes all complaints of bullying extremely seriously, and we insisted that new complaints processes in Parliament fully cover bullying as well as harassment and sexual misconduct.

“We are pleased these processes are now in place and we will continue to bring forward proposals to ensure they as robust as possible. The Labour Party’s complaints procedures are confidential so we cannot comment on individual complaints.”

Keith Vaz accused of ‘bullying members of staff in House of Commons’

1 Aug 2018

The MP allegedly made comments about a clerk’s race and fertility

Veteran Labour politician Keith Vaz has reportedly been accused of bullying from a number of clerks as they tried to uphold the rules and processes in the House of Commons.


The MP for Leicester East allegedly made comments about one clerk’s race and told her she was bad at her job because she was “not a mother”, when she raised an issue about him not following rules and standards.

Jenny McCullough told the BBC’s Newsnight she was repeatedly on the receiving end of Mr Vaz’s bullying and was forced to leave her job because of his behaviour.

Mr Vaz has denied the allegations.

Ms McCullough served as the second clerk of the Home Affairs Select Committee which Mr Vaz chaired from 2007 to 2016, until he was forced to quit after the Sunday Mirror revealed he had engaged in unprotected sexual activity with male prostitutes and had said he would pay for cocaine if they wished to use it.

She told the programme that he made the comments when she attempted to enforce a set of rules that designed to stop professional visits abroad turning into personal holidays or business trips.

During a trip to Russia and Ukraine she allegedly attempted to highlight to him that he had not followed protocol on a number of occasions.

When she did so, she said Mr Vaz launched a “tirade” against her in a hotel lobby.

“At one point during this tirade, he told me that I wasn’t capable of serving the committee because I wasn’t a mother,” she told Newsnight. “All I knew was it wasn’t normal to be harangued about my fertility status in the reception of a hotel room, at public expense in front of my colleague on the team.

“I think there were other members of the committee there, I think there may have been some foreign office staff and other guests of the hotel.”

She also alleged that Mr Vaz made jokes that Ms McCullough was a security threat, on account of her Northern Irish background and accent.

The treatment continued well after the trip had come to an end, she said, adding that she was eventually asked to stop coming to team meetings because her presence resulted in Mr Vaz being too disruptive and not getting any work done.

She said when she highlighted the treatment to her managers, it was treated as though it was normal.

“It was as though there was something wrong with me, that I was too sensitive, that this was normal. And I found that a really hard response to deal with because they seem content to let Keith Vaz deliver this lesson to me by his treatment of me,” she said.

She said she did not put in a formal complaint because she was “afraid” of Mr Vaz and that as he was well connected she “thought it could only end badly”.

Ms McCullough is not the only clerk to raise a complaint about Mr Vaz’s behaviour, the programme reported.

The Independent has contacted Mr Vaz for a comment, but none had arrived at the time of publication.

However, a representative for the MP told Newsnight that he “did not berate Ms McCullough at any stage whether before during or after the Russia trip, nor did he at any time insult her maternal status”.

They added: “Furthermore, our client finds the allegation that he would make insulting jokes about anyone on the basis of race extremely offensive” and “would never trivialise a person’s ethnic background. ​No complaint or allegation of this nature has ever been brought to his attention. Our client had considered that he and Ms McCullough had previously had a good working relationship, and had always considered her to be very effective as a clerk.”

Renewed calls for Labour MP’s resignation amid fresh allegations of misconduct

Records show Keith Vaz accepted VIP tickets to Leicester City Premiere League football matches during the time he was meant to be too ‘ill’ to participate in other ethics probe

25th April 2018

SHAMED Labour MP Keith Vaz faced fresh calls to quit last night after it emerged he attended a string of Premier League football matches despite being deemed too “ill” for his rent boys probe.

Parliament’s sleaze watchdog suspended the investigation into allegations he paid for rent boys due to his illness in December.

 

But despite the three-month pause Mr Vaz accepted invitations for VIP hospitality at Leicester City football matches.

The Register of MPs’ Financial Interests reveals he accepted £330 worth of hospitality on February 24 and March 18.

The latter match was three days before Parliament’s Standards Commissioner reopened her inquiry into Mr Vaz.

Mr Vaz has also travelled nearly 5,000 miles to India and took a trip to Saudi Arabia during the suspended investigation.

Mr Vaz issued a grovelling public apology to his wife and children in 2016 after it emerged he had paid two male escorts for their services.

A newspaper sting revealed Keith Vaz tried to hide his real identity by telling them he was a washing machine salesman called Jim.

The escorts claimed he asked them to bring poppers and offered to reimburse a third man for buying cocaine.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said the latest revelations of Mr Vaz’s activities during his suspended investigation was proof he’s no longer fit to be an MP.

He said: “As we can see from his register of interest Vaz wasn’t too ill to accept hospitality at LCFC. This shows that the Standards Commissioner was right to kick off the investigation into his rent boys and cocaine incident again.

“I have long been of the belief that Keith Vaz is not a fit and proper person to serve in the House of Commons and he should resign immediately.”

The outgoing Standards Commissioner Kathryn Hudson suspended the probe days before Christmas “on the basis of a medical assessment”.

Her successor Kathryn Stone reopened it after a fresh medical assessment last month

Sleaze probe into Keith Vaz over male escorts is BACK ON after standards watchdog decides Labour MP is well enough to be investigated

  • Sleaze inquiry into Labour’s Keith Vaz had been put on hold for ‘medical reason’
  • The MP was accused of meeting male prostitutes in 2016 newspaper sting 
  • Married Vaz stood down as Home Affairs Committee chair after scandal broke
  • Questions have been raised over health as he has continued to carry out work 

A sleaze probe into Keith Vaz and male escorts is back on after the parliamentary standards watchdog decided he is well enough to face investigation.

The inquiry into the veteran Labour MP was suspended in December ‘for medical reasons’.

Questions have been raised as he has continued to take part in engagements in the UK and around the world.

However, commissioner Kathryn Stone confirmed on her website today that she has resumed her investigation. 

Mr Vaz, who is diabetic, did not respond to a request for comment this afternoon.

Married Mr Vaz, who has two children, stood down as chairman of the Commons home affairs committee after his involvement with male prostitutes was exposed by a newspaper sting in 2016.

During the liaison, at which he claimed his name was Jim and that he was a washing machine salesman, he discussed buying cocaine with one of the Romanian rent boys, with undercover film footage of him saying he would pay for the class-A drugs but did not want to take any himself.

Later that year, Scotland Yard dropped its investigation into Mr Vaz, but a separate probe by the Commons sleaze watchdog was due to look at whether the MP was guilty of a conflict of interest as he had been leading a review of vice laws at the time of the allegations.

The inquiry was also due to examine whether he had caused ‘significant damage’ to Parliament’s reputation

But in December, the standards commissioner Kathryn Hudson cited medical reasons when she suspended the long-running investigation into Mr Vaz.

However, that same month, Mr Vaz reportedly went on a trip to Saudi Arabia, while in January he posted a picture of himself in Goa, India, with government minister Rohan Khaunte.

That month he was also photographed alongside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn at a meeting of the all party parliamentary group on Yemen.

Since the investigation into his conduct was halted by the standards commissioner, the Leicester East MP has opened a new swimming pool in the city, attended planning meetings, travelled nearly 5,000 miles to India and took a trip to Saudi Arabia.

n an outing earlier this month, Mr Vaz appeared alongside Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha at an event in London, where they were both pictured on stage.

Mr Sinha told the website Bollywood Hungama how he had been invited to come to the UK by the Labour MP.

He said: ‘Keith and the Indian community in London wanted to honour me. I couldn’t say no. This was a huge and humbling honour coming from my brothers and sisters on British soil.’

The MP was also a VIP guest at the Festival of Polish Folklore in Leicester on Sunday, described on its website as a vibrant celebration of Polish dance, song and music that featured more than 400 performers.

‘Too sick to be investigated’ Keith Vaz was spotted at both a Bollywood and a dance festival at different ends of the country in the last week. The MP was a VIP guest at the Polish Folklore festival at De Montfort Hall, Leicester on Sunday. Earlier, he attended a Bollywood festival in London where he was pictured with a famous actor:

“Shatrughan Sinha was honoured in London by Keith Vaz the MP from the British Labour Party. During a Q-and-A session after being honoured Shatrughan Sinha was asked which distinguished Indian he would like to play on screen.”

Guido revealed how last month Vaz was spotted opening a swimming pool, attending council meetings, an APPG and a music gig in Leicester. In December Guido asked what had happened to the Standards Commissioner’s investigation into Keith Vaz, which still hasn’t reported back after nearly a year and a half. The Vaz inquiry remains “suspended for medical reasons”. Becoming embarrassing for the parliamentary authorities…

Keith Vaz Makes Trips to India and Saudi Arabia – But ‘Too Ill’ to Face Male Prostitutes Investigation

11 Feb 2018

Labour MP Keith Vaz has remained active internationally, despite an investigation into footage of him using male prostitutes and discussing Class A drugs being suspended due to alleged ill health.

The former Chair of the Commons Select Committee has visited India and Saudi Arabia and attended several engagements in his constituency, all whilst claiming to be too ill to face justice.

In Leicester, he has opened a new swimming pool, attended planning meetings, met a housing developer, and is even alleged to have been spotted at a music gig.

He has also been well enough to appear in public alongside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and table a number of parliamentary questions.

Now, a Tory MP has compiled a dossier of his activities and is calling for the parliamentary standards watchdog to resume their investigation into his alleged use of Romanian rent boys and hard drugs, the Daily Mailreports.

Mr. Vaz was caught discussing sex and the illegal substances in undercover footage shot by the Daily Mirror in 2016, but has carried on as a member of parliament, and even been appointed to the Justice select committee.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, who says his office had compiled a dossier on Mr. Vaz’s appearances that would be passed to the standards commissioner, commented:

“He is supposedly unfit to answer questions about his conduct in relation to rent boys and cocaine, but he appears to be out and about in Leicester and elsewhere. He is the most healthy-looking ‘ill’ person I’ve ever seen.

“At the end of the day if he’s unfit to be held to the standards of an MP then he’s not fit to be an MP.

“The parliamentary standards watchdog says she has independent medical advice to say that he cannot face questions. But he looks surprisingly well to me.”

The standards commissioner’s office said: “When she has fresh independent medical advice, the commissioner will review it.”

Mr. Vaz’s office did not respond to request for a comment.

It’s been a busy week for Keith Vaz, first accused of abusing his position and now embroiled in another mysterious scandal over his election expenses. His local paper report that Vaz spent £100 to use the premises on Uppingham Road, Leicester – his own taxpayer-funded constituency office. Vaz’s election agent Piara Singh Clair explains: “we did it because we needed a room and it would have been expensive to hire another one. It was a nominal sum”, bizarrely adding that no money had actually changed hands despite it being declared as an expense. If no money was actually spent, why was it falsely declared to the Electoral Commission? Curiouser and curiouser…

Investigation: Pupils taught in huts as head pockets £400,000

A headteacher who faces the sack over allegations that he received unlawful bonuses took home more than £400,000 in a year — four times his official salary — the Standard can reveal.

 

Sir Alan Davies

An auditor’s report alleges Sir Alan Davies was part of a culture of nepotism and rewards that saw staff take home at least £1.6 million in bonuses and other extra payments.

Sir Alan, head of 1,900-pupil Copland Community College in Wembley, received “what appear to be unlawful and irrational payments” from funds that should have been spent on education, according to Brent council’s confidential investigation. A copy of the investigator’s initial findings, seen by the Standard, alleges:

At least 10 senior staff — and Sir Alan’s caretaker son — received rewards under the school’s “sharing in success” bonus policy.

Sir Alan took home £403,278 last year but his basic salary was £103,000.

The bonuses were approved by the school’s chairman of governors, Dr Indravadan Purshottamdas Patel.

The full amount of bonuses has not yet been calculated, but the total extra payments known so far is £1,565,700.

Last week, Sir Alan, his deputy Dr Richard Evans and bursar Columbus Udokoro were suspended over allegations that the bonus scheme broke the law. Children’s Secretary Ed Balls said he was “extremely disturbed” by the payments.

But the investigator’s findings revealed the scale of the payments was far greater than originally feared.

As a foundation school Copland has more control over its own budget and assets than a community comprehensive run by the council. Ministers want more schools to become foundation trusts, with powers to run their own affairs. But while Sir Alan and his colleagues benefited from bonuses, the school’s buildings fell into disrepair.

In 2006, inspectors warned the rundown classrooms were undermining pupils’ education. A shanty-town of temporary huts now stands where a new sixth-form block should be, while the humanities department had to cope with a major sewage leak. History teacher Shane Johnschwager, NASUWT union representative, said: “If the kids were cattle the authorities would have closed us down. My room has been painted once — by me, in the school holidays with paint I paid for.

“I have holes in the wall, a broken desk, old furniture, no interactive whiteboard, broken blinds, a flaking ceiling. Other rooms are worse.”

The school has been earmarked for redevelopment for six years. Under the plans, a £120 million “village” will include new school buildings, two gyms, a pool and floodlit all-weather pitch, plus 453 flats and shops.

But the development, overseen by Sir Alan, has setbacks. The school racked up a £1 million debt to a property firm when an earlier deal broke down.

Yet, according to the Brent council investigation, Sir Alan was given rewards of £231,000 in the past two years alone for project managing the development, on top of his basic salary. Dr Patel claimed Sir Alan deserved “every penny”.

The scale of the bonus culture emerged at a meeting on 29 April between Sir Alan and Brent’s chief investigator, Simon Lane. When pressed by Mr Lane Sir Alan “could not recall” why he had received one payment of £12,500 last year “and said he would have to check”.

He was not alone in receiving “substantial” extra payments. According to the auditor’s report, Sir Alan, his son Gareth, Dr Evans and Mr Udokoro shared £458,000 for project management relating to the new development between 2007 and 2009.

In addition Sir Alan, three deputy heads and a number of other staff, including his son, received “significant bonus payments in 2007-08 and earlier years”, the auditor found. These known bonus payments — which are bound to be a fraction of the total handed out — amount to a further £865,200.

The report said Sir Alan “could not explain” exactly why he received such bonuses, adding: “Either he or the chair (of governors) put down some ideas as to what they thought the staff should be paid. These were then checked with Dr Evans to see if they were affordable. Then the amounts were taken to the Pay Review Committee where they were approved.”

The council said there were “numerous additional payments of significant amounts” to senior staff and others at the school. Sir Alan insisted that Dr Patel had approved the payments in conjunction with the school’s pay committee, and that a budget for bonuses had been properly drawn up.

The investigators disagreed. The report said: “The council believes there to be no lawful and/or rational basis for the payment of these sums.”

The final area of concern raised by investigators was the apparently widespread nepotism. The headteacher’s son, son-in-law and sister were all employed. The wife and mother of the deputy head of finance were given jobs, along with the accountant’s brother, the son and daughter of the assistant accountant and the nephew’s wife of the chair of governors.

“In some cases salaries paid to these members of staff appear excessive,” the report said. “This tends to indicate that certain members of staff may not have been appointed on merit alone.”

Last week the borough’s director of children’s services John Christie invoked rarely used powers to suspend Sir Alan, Dr Evans and Mr Udokoro, and gave the governors three weeks to explain themselves or face the sack.

In a letter to governors, Mr Christie said: “Funds which should have been used for the proper purposes of the school have been spent on what appear to be unlawful and irrational payments to staff.” The school seems to have incurred a £1 million “financial liability to a development firm”, he said.

Teacher Hank Roberts, who exposed the payments last month, called for police to be brought in. Mr Roberts said he believed he had made enemies by his actions.

He was suspended by Sir Alan over an unrelated matter. The day after Sir Alan’s suspension, Mr Roberts was reinstated.

Brent council said its inquiry into the allegations against Copland was ongoing. Sir Alan was not available for comment last night. Mr Udokoro today said he was prevented from making any comment under the terms of his suspension, but last week rejected any suggestion of wrongdoing.

Dr Patel could not be reached last night but has defended the decision to award bonuses. Gareth Davies said today he was prevented from making any comments until the inquiry had been completed.

Philip O’Hear, Copland’s acting headteacher, said the school was “shocked” by what had happened.

The allegations

Sir Alan Davies, headteacher: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other payments of £631,500.

Dr Richard Evans, deputy head: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other extra payments of £341,000.

Columbus Udokoro, bursar: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other extra payments of £72,000.

Gareth Davies, maintenance staff: still working.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other payments of £38,000.

The council says there were many other payments.

Sir Alan Davies outside Copland with David Cameron

Both Sir Alan Davies and Dr Evans have been lauded for their work in the state education system with Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron all visiting their former school.

 

Dr Evans, 53, is a former education adviser to Mr Cameron and a former Westminster councillor who twice stood as a Tory candidate.

All three are accused of defrauding Copland community school in Wembley, North West London, following allegations that payments totalling at least £1.56million were made to Sir Alan and three of his managers over a period of seven years.

Mrs Evans, 50, has also been accused of selling at Sotheby’s around 15 paintings, worth many thousands, that had been given to the school by British artist Mary Fedden, who taught David Hockney.

Davies is also accused of one count of laundering £270,490 by transferring the sum from a NatWest bank account in England to a Spanish bank account in March 2008.

He is further charged with six counts of false accounting, said to have taken place between April 2007 and June 2009 – part of his alleged efforts to ‘cover up his activities’.

 

Head teacher Sir Alan Davies avoids jail over fraud

  • 3 October 2013

An “inspirational” head teacher has been given a suspended prison sentence after admitting false accounting.

Sir Alan Davies, 66, of Grants Close, the former head at Wembley’s Copland School, in north London, pleaded guilty to creating a false paper trail on bonus payments and allowances.

Davies, knighted for his services to education, resigned in 2009.

At Southwark Crown Court, Judge Deborah Taylor said: “Your dishonest behaviour represents a fall from grace.”

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-24383163

‘Honest payments’

It had been claimed that Davies paid himself, three staff members and two governors a total of £2.7m over several years through bonuses and salaries.

But charges of conspiracy to defraud against Davies and five others relating to that alleged plot were dropped.

Instead Davies pleaded guilty to six counts of false accounting after he admitted creating eight back-payment documents at the same time, for sums totalling £315,000.

Defending Davies, William Clegg QC, told the court he was an “inspirational” teacher and the offences needed to be taken in context.

He said: “This is not a case of documents being forged to permit payments to be made that were unlawful and not agreed or made dishonestly. The position is the opposite.

“The payments were honestly made and honestly received. This is not somebody seeking to obtain money he was not entitled to.”

‘Profound error’

Prosecutor John Black QC added there was no dishonesty in the making or receiving of the payments.

He said: “The dishonesty relates to false paper trails in order to legitimise these payments.

“The Crown say they [paperwork backing up payments] were all generated at the same time, after Sir Alan Davies had become aware of the impending or likely scrutiny, to give the impression the right procedure was being adhered to.”

A charge of money laundering against Davies was also dropped.

Following the case, Davies said: “In some instances I have felt that we were being tried by the media and there were a lot of misrepresentations made in the press, many of which were wholly unfounded.

“I do, however, have to accept that I did not have all the necessary paperwork in place and I made a profound error of judgment by backdating eight documents.”

In a statement, Brent Council, said: “The council will always act robustly and take action where allegations of financial irregularities have been made, to investigate and pursue legal action.

“In this case the guilty plea of false accounting vindicates the actions taken although we are disappointed the Crown Prosecution Service saw fit not to pursue the conspiracy to defraud.”

Ex-Copland School teacher Dr Richard Evans lands job at Mill Hill County High School

Dr Richard Evans
 16 Sep 2010

A MATHS teacher fired for “gross misconduct” from a Wembley school amid allegations of a £1.6m fraud is now teaching at a top Mill Hill school.

Arkley resident Dr Richard Evans lost his job at Copland Community School in November after allegations he pocketed £300,000 in bonuses in his role as deputy head in charge of finance.

Scotland Yard’s fraud squad has now launched an investigation into the financial dealings at the school.

However, in January, Dr Evans was taken on at Mill Hill County High School as a temporary member of staff and given a permanent position in April.

A statement from Geoffrey Thompson, the headmaster of the Worcester Crescent School, said Dr Evans had been appointed after a consultation with the General Teaching Council.

He added: “He was given a permanent position as a maths teacher in April. Dr Evans is a highly qualified maths teacher and has proved himself a popular and valued member of our school community.

“I do not believe there are any grounds for parental concern. There never has been any question about Dr Evans’s suitability to work with children.

“The circumstances which led to Dr Evans’s departure from his previous post had no connection whatsoever with his teaching. He has demonstrated he has been an excellent maths teacher during his time at Mill Hill County High School.”

An investigation by Brent Council into the dealings at Copland, which ended with four of the senior management team suspended, found evidence of “serious financial mismanagement” at the school.

Shane Johnschwager, a staff member at Copland School and Brent secretary for teacher’s union NASUWT was outraged by the appointment.

He told the Times Series: “Richard Evans will have to answer to his professional body and possibly to the courts.

“What will Geoffrey Thompson say to pupils and parents at Mill Hill County if he is struck off or charged with a criminal offence?

“Will he stake his reputation on this appointment? Mill Hill is a school with an excellent reputation. Is this the best Geoffrey Thompson can do in recruiting staff to the school – a disgraced and recently sacked teacher embroiled in Britain’s largest ever educational financial scandal?”

http://www.times-series.co.uk/news/8392834.Sacked_controversial_teacher_given_job_at_top_school/


QUESTIONS:

  1. I’d like to ask Dr Evans why the other 15 paintings were sold at auction?
  2. Did he have proof they were his when he sold them through Sotheby’s?
  3. Were the proceeds given to the school or kept by Dr Evans?
  4. Why is this issue still ongoing EIGHT YEARS after it first emerged?
  5. Why have the three remaining paintings not been returned to the school by Brent Council?
  6. Did Keir Starmer involve himself in the legal process of the fraud case?
  7. Why were charges dropped against all other defendants despite an indepth and lengthy FOUR YEAR investigation?
  8. Is Dr Patel really the ideal choice to be a trustee of a charity despite admitting inappropriate payments at Copland School?
  9. Did Brent Council ever recover the £2.7m?
  10. Did any of them consider the knock-on effect this would have on the school and the children who found themselves under such a horrible cloud?

Did you know that each summer Keith Vaz holds an ‘Annual Tea Party’ in Westminster?

CLAUDIO RANIERI ATTENDS ANNUAL TEA PARTY AT THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

Leicester East MP Keith Vaz hosted his 29th annual tea party at the House of Commons on Saturday 9th July. His guest of honour this year was Leicester City Football Club Manager Claudio Ranieri and his wife Rosanna. LCFC Chief Executive Susan Whelan and her husband Robbie Gill also attended.

For the past 28 years Mr Vaz has been holding summer tea parties for all of his family, staff and special guests.

Saturday’s event was a celebration of Leicester City’s tremendous victory, and as well as getting to meet Leicester City’s manager, Mr Vaz and his guests got to see the Premier League Trophy.

Before the tea party Mr Ranieri, Ms Whelan and their families toured Number 10, with the permission of the Prime Minister.

The 85 party guests got to enjoy the sunshine on the House of Commons terrace, overlooking the River Thames with tea, sandwiches and cake. Guests could also help raise money for Silver Star, the diabetes charity Mr Vaz founded in 2007, by taking part in a raffle.

Prizes for the raffle included House of Commons whiskey and chocolate and a giant teddy bear.

Petitions, Pinheads, Police and Vaz

On the excellent Aangirfan site, on an unrelated post, I came across this anonymous comment from November 2016 [1a]

It was about a petition to Keith Vaz’s Labour East constituency calling them to investigate the serious allegations against Keith Vaz.

vazpetition

Regular readers of this site will know that allegations that the Sun [2] printed were of child sexual abuse with boys.

sunvazAccording to the Sun the MP

  • had  lads “delivered” to his room at a hotel near a police station
  • abused boys at a hospital’s mental health unit
  • left one so terrified he fears for his life if he ever speaks out
  • showed an “unhealthy” interest in the two young sons of a local councillor
  • displayed a liking for “young ragamuffins”,
  • was seen as untouchable by police because of his revered
    position.

Guido Fawkes published that the MP was Keith Vaz [5]

fawkes

Why does Keith Vaz, often keen to “get the party started” not seem so keen to start the legal party against Guido Fawkes or the Sun on Sunday team?

The parliamentary commissioner is still conducting an investigation into whether Vaz has broken Section 10 of the Code of Conduct for MPs.

It is not known whether the conflict of interest being investigated by the parliamentary commissioner is the possible breaking of the Code of Conduct of MPs

  • with sex, drugs and washing machine allegations
  • the conflict of a police investigation into child sexual abuse allegations and his role on committees [5]

It is not known whether all police investigations into Keith Vaz have finished, but the sex, drugs and washing machine ones have finished, with no action taken.

However, the point of this post is that the petition has disappeared. From the comment, the petition text appeared to be –

“The Leicester East Constituency Labour Party must make enquiries into the serious allegations by the MP for Leicester East, Keith Vaz. Your enquiries should principally involve talking to the Sun on Sunday Journalists David Wooding and Michael Hamilton and Sun on Sunday Columnist Paul Staines to find out what their evidence is.”

It is not known whether this was the full text of the petition.

If you click the link [4] It says “This petition isn’t available. Either the URL is incorrect, it violated our Community Guidelines, or the starter removed it.”

Yet it seems such a reasonable, innocuous petition so why would it violate any guidelines or why would the originator take it down?

Does anyone know –

  • What was the full text of the petition?
  • What happened to it?
  • Who started it?
  • Why it was taken down?
  • When it was taken down?
  • Who took it down?
  • Have Leicester East Labour Party investigated the serious allegations?

One thing is for sure the people of Leicestershire and Labour in Leicestershire, who also had Janner, child sexual abuser as an MP must be getting fed up of this bad publicity.

Hopefully they are doing something about it and start asking Vaz a few questions.

Meanwhile, since this article was under construction, Vaz has set the record straight through his solicitors about some of his time selling washing machines.

In the last 24 hours,the Order Order website has published an article about Carter Ruck, expensive solicitors, who say their client, Keith Vaz

  • has never paid “rent boys for sex”
  • never had “sex” with “rent boys”.
  • there was never a police investigation in relation to this

One has to wonder if their client is the same Keith Vaz??

Carter Ruck are of course paid handsomely for dancing on pinheads.

..and Tesco must be wondering why Keith Vaz had to pose for a picture near their store or have they started a line in industrial washing machines?

vazrentboysue2vazrentboysue

  • I wonder what Vaz’s defence actually is?
  • I wonder how Carter Ruck know for sure that their client has never paid “rent boys for sex” or “sex” with “rent boys”? (It conjures up the mental image of one of Carter Rucks flunkies accompanying Vaz/Jim on his nocturnal visits and checking whether the people concerned can be excluded from the definition of  “rent boy”. ID card please! )
  • I wonder if the fact that Carter Ruck say he has not paid for or had sex with rent boys is enough plausible deniability and bluster to appear to be a denial from Vaz whilst actually being from a third party. This would scare a few people off commenting, and maybe enough enough to come to a quid pro quo with the Mail, which has the appearance of a denial. When solicitors make these threats, it is very rare for one to actually sign the letter and be responsible for that threat.

The  Mail article is mostly about Vaz’s gatekeeper chum John Bercow accepting freebies – 2017 Feb 8 Mail Andrew Pierce [9] Chauffeur-driven cars, taxpayer-funded suits and hospitality at the tennis and Arsenal matches: How the king of freebies John Bercow splashes your cash

The last paragraph however mentioned Vaz.

vazrentboymailThe article published on the 8th Feb, does say it has been updated on 13th Feb. This however appears to be unrelated to the Carter Ruck threat, as the only sentence that has changed on this paragraph from a print edition copy, is the removal of “The charity gave £2,500 to Bercow’s Speaker’s election campaign in 2010” with reference to the Silver Star diabetes charity.

Whatever the truth the original articles are here Mirror Married MP Keith Vaz tells prostitutes in his flat: ‘Bring poppers’ … ‘We need to get this party started’ [12] 

mirror-vazSo game on between Vaz and the Daily Mail or will they come to some agreement out of mutual self interest?

Interestingly on the Carter Ruck website, the rolling self congratulatory advert attributes these comments to the Mail “Top London Law Firm” and “Famously Combative”.  We shall see.

I cannot see Jim washing his very dirty laundry in public.

But who will blink first Lord Rothermere or Carter Ruck?

Taylor, son of the MAYOR was MATES with Nigel Philpott-Jones + was NOT suprised allegs of rent boys came out re KEITH VAZ 2016

Speaker accused of pulling punches on Keith Vaz probe

The Speaker last night denied blocking an attempt to tell Parliament about police investigations into Keith Vaz because he had received thousands from donors linked to the MP.

Records show that £41,000 of the £58,000 raised for John Bercow’s last two general election campaigns came from people with connections to Mr Vaz.

Yesterday Mr Bercow insisted he had handled all matters involving Mr Vaz in line with parliamentary rules and strongly refuted any suggestion he had unfairly favoured the Leicester East MP.

IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE ME? Bercow was presented with a wooden bust of himself by former Labour councillor Neeraj Patil, a businessman with links to Keith Vaz in 2015. But the figure’s likeness to the Speaker is rather questionable

Narinder Singh Chadha, the former chairman of Mr Vaz’s diabetes charity Silver Star, told The Times he gave £2,501 to Mr Bercow’s 2010 election campaign after Mr Vaz asked for the donation.

Other donations to Mr Bercow included £5,000 from the London College of Accountancy, which also gives money to Mr Vaz, and £2,500 from the late Lord Noon, a Labour donor whose Commons memorial tribute was hosted by Mr Vaz.

Mr Bercow received £7,500 from Sun Mark, a food company founded by Mr Vaz’s friend Rami Ranger, and £5,000 from Madhu’s, a restaurant chain run by Sanjay and Sanjeev Anand, friends of both Mr Vaz and Mr Bercow.

Neeraj Patil, a Labour councillor and associate of Mr Vaz, donated £2,500 through his business Dreamsland. He also gave Mr Bercow a wooden bust of himself.

All donations were declared by Mr Bercow and within the rules.

But Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said last night the connections raised questions about Mr Bercow’s handling of allegations involving Mr Vaz.

In September 2015, Mr Bridgen wrote to Mr Bercow requesting he contact police to ask about inquiries they were making into Mr Vaz and whether they conflicted with his position at the time as chairman of the home affairs select committee, but he said this was not part of his role.

After Mr Vaz stepped down from the role because of a rent boy scandal, Mr Bridgen tried to raise the matter of a separate police investigation involving the MP in the Commons in October last year as Mr Vaz was standing to join the justice select committee.

Mr Bercow interrupted him and said he should limit his remarks to information in the public domain.

A spokesman for Mr Bercow said last night he had at all times acted ‘to uphold the rules and conventions of the House of Commons’.

She added: ‘As a matter of parliamentary practice and procedure, a member is not given the floor to speak as a means of making a personal attack on the conduct of another member.

‘Mr Bridgen stated at the outset that he would try to limit his remarks to matters in the public domain. The Speaker permitted him to do so on matters of public record and stopped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker.’

On the September 2015 request for Mr Bercow to speak to police, she said: ‘A select committee itself has the power to declare no confidence in its chair but the Speaker has precisely none.’

Regarding Mr Chadha’s suggestion that Mr Vaz had asked him to donate money to Mr Bercow, she said: ‘Whatever contacts eligible donors have with other Members of Parliament are a matter for them.’

Mr Vaz denied he had solicited donations for Mr Bercow and said Mr Chadha had been ‘misquoted and misrepresented’. He noted Sun Mark also gave £25,000 to Theresa May’s leadership campaign.

He added: ‘The British Asian community should not be criticised for making lawful political donations to political parties and individual MPs of their choice.’


I’ll just leave this here for you to chew over….

Sounds like Silver Star is not much more than Jim’s industrial-scale money-laundering washing machine!

You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours!

Does Bercow share Vaz’s pastimes?


John Bercow ‘stopped Tory MP from informing the Commons about Keith Vaz police probe after accepting donations’

  • Claims speaker refused to tell Mr Vaz to step down after warning from Tory MP he was being investigated for alleged abuse of public office in September 2015
  • Also stopped Tory MP informing Commons about investigation, report says 
  • Speaker’s office said of the donations: ‘There was no impropriety of any sort’
  • A spokesman for Mr Vaz called allegations made in a newspaper article ‘wrong’  

John Bercow stopped a Tory MP telling the Commons about a police probe into Keith Vaz after receiving tens of thousands of pounds worth of donations from his alleged associates, according to newspaper report.

Donations to help the Speaker keep his parliamentary seat reportedly included a sum from Narinder Chadha – chair of the management board of Mr Vaz’s Silver Star charity.

However a spokesperson for Mr Vaz told MailOnline the newspaper’s story was ‘wrong’ and that Mr Chadha denies having spoken ‘this year’ to The Times.

The newspaper reported an alleged conversation with Mr Chada in which he is said to have confirmed that he gave the money after a request from the MP for Leicester East.

Mr Vaz’s representatives deny this saying that Mr Chada will be complaining to IPSO over the Times article.

In total, the Speaker accepted £41,000 from donors thought to be linked to Mr Vaz, according to the newspaper.

The Times claimed Mr Bercow refused to tell Mr Vaz to resign as chair of the Home Affairs select committee after Tory MP Andrew Bridgen privately warned him the Labour MP was being investigated by police – an investigation Mr Vaz later said he knew nothing of in September 2015.

The Speaker later interrupted Mr Bridgen when he attempted to talk about the allegation in the Commons, according to The Times.

A spokesperson for the Speaker told the MailOnline that ‘a personally defamatory attack on another Member[ was not allowed] on the floor. The Speaker allowed….[Mr Bridger to speak] on matters of public record, and stopped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker.’

Mr Vaz did eventually step down as chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee last year after he was caught meeting two male prostitutes.

This scandal was said to be unrelated to the police investigation in 2015.

A spokesman for Mr Bercow said the role of Speaker did not give him the right to tell an elected member of a select committee to step down.

Mr Vaz’s representatives said Mr Chadha had not spoken to The Times and called the claims in its article ‘wrong’.

All the other people who gave money to Mr Bercow told The Times they had not been told to do so by Mr Vaz.

Donations to help the Speaker keep his parliamentary seat included a payout from Narinder Chadha – chair of the management board of Mr Vaz’s (pictured) Silver Star charity

They also denied the donors listed by The Times were ‘associates’ of the Labour MP or they donated to Mr Bercow because he told them to do so.

There is no suggestion in The Times investigation Mr Bercow or Mr Vaz broke any rules.

Mr Vaz now sits on the Justice Committee, which oversees the director of public prosecutions.

After his appointment on October 1, 2016, Mr Bridgen spoke in the Commons to claim police were investigating claims Mr Vaz could have ‘abused his position in public office’.

The Speaker interrupted the Tory MP twice, saying he was discussing information that was not in the public domain.

A spokesman from the Speaker told MailOnline: ‘All of the donations to the Speaker Seeking Re-Election campaign were from eligible donors, and are a matter of longstanding public record.

‘There was absolutely no impropriety of any sort before or after any donation from any individual was accepted.

‘To suggest that this is not the case would not only be a wholly unfair impaction it would be, and is, demonstrably unproved and, more importantly completely and utterly untrue.’

Referring to Mr Bridgen’s speech, the representative said Mr Bercow had allowed him to speak on ‘matters of public record’.

But she added: ‘The Speaker topped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker as per the longstanding rules.’

The spokesman also said Mr Bercow was not allowed to publish correspondence on a sensitive matter between him and another MP.

Mr Vaz said: ‘The British Asian community should not be criticised for making lawful political donations to political parties or to individual MPs. They are entitled to make their own decisions.

‘I am not surprised that they choose to donate to people like Speaker Bercow or Theresa May who are greatly admired by the community for their commitment to equality and diversity.

‘In the 30 years I have been in Parliament I have observed that the British Asian community have moved from just supporting the Labour Party to supporting other political parties.

‘This is a sign of the diversity of our country and the strength and confidence of the community. Long may it continue.’


 

Three Times Articles on Bercow and Vaz 11 Feb 2017

Here are three articles from the Times which illustrate the dubious nature of the double act Bercow and Vaz or is it Vaz and Bercow?

It exposes amongst other things that the Bercow had much donated to him from chums of Dodgy Vaz. [but not so far any industrial washing machines :)]

This of course adds to my own post on their Right Dodgynesses and FOI Requests, Bercow and Vaz Personal / Private Conflicts of Interest  [4], where there is information on how to make a complaint.

Bercow ‘blocked MP from revealing investigation into Keith Vaz after accepting donations’

JOHN Bercow blocked warnings of police investigations into shamed Labour MP Keith Vaz after receiving tens of thousands of pounds from donors allegedly linked to the politician, according to reports.

Feb 11, 2017

The donations included one payout from Narinder Chadha – the Chairman of the management board of Mr Vaz’s Silver Star Charity.

Mr Chadha has since admitted he made the donation after a recommendation from Mr Vaz.

Mr Vaz was forced to resign as chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee after it was revealed he was involved in a sex party with two male prostitutes.

According to a Freedom of Information request by The Times, the Speaker amassed £41,000 from donors with links to Mr Vaz

 The Times investigation claims Mr Bercow did not ask Mr Vaz to step down from his prestigious place on the Home Affairs Committee after MP Andrew Bridgen privately alerted him to allegations being made police.
The paper claimed the Speaker later called on Mr Bridgen to sit down as he attempted to talk about the allegations – which related to alleged abuse of Mr Vaz’s position in office and had no relation to his sex scandal last year.Mr Vaz currently sits on the Justice Committee, who oversee the director of public prosecutions.
After the Labour MP was appointment to the committee, Mr Bridgen made a speech to the Commons claiming police were investigating allegations Mr Vaz might have “abused his position in public office”.But Mr Bercow, who was not obliged to act on the allegations, interrupted the concerned MP twice – claiming he was attempting to speak about events that were not publicly known.Mr Bercow told The Times all of the donors were personal acquaintances who he had met on a variety of different occasions.Mr Vaz said members of the Asian community financially supported MPs, including Mr Bercow, due to admiration for their commitment to diversity.

A spokesperson for Mr Bercow’s offices said: “The Speaker’s seven years’ experience in office and his professional adviser’s 40 years’ experience carry rather greater weight than the implication that the Speaker’s Office should operate in the manner of an episode of Diagnosis Murder — keeping order in the chamber by day and investigating alleged crimes by night.“Although this is a pitch I may well make at some stage if I decide to go into the writing of daytime drama, the reality is that this is not how the role of the Speaker works.“To be clear: the Speaker implements standing orders and chairs proceedings in the chamber – freestyling as Columbo at the request of a member on the basis of an unsubstantiated allegation is not part of the Speaker’s job description.”http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/765991/John-Bercow-Keith-Vaz-Andrew-Bridgen-police-investigation-donations-select-committee

What Has The Sun Got On Keith Vaz?

The art of tabloid news, as Zelo Street regulars will know by now, consists not only of getting some stories out there, but preventing others from doing the same. Hence anything that assists the attacks on politicians of inconvenient view, judges making decisions that their proprietors don’t like, and Slebs who exercise their right to speak freely gets out there, while anything on the likes of John Whittingdale most certainly does not.
Keith Vaz


So it was that the Tabs knew all about Whitto and his relationships with a number of known sex workers, but published nothing – not until Byline Media, with Zelo Street in the vanguard, had put the story out there. So it also seems to be with Labour MP Keith Vaz, about whom sources independent of one another have recently voiced concern, but who is still in post as MP for Leicester East, and still chairing a Commons committee.

Accusations: Natalie Rowe


This state of affairs has not pleased Natalie Rowe, former purveyor of strict disciplinary measures to the Rt Hon Gideon George Oliver Osborne, heir to the Seventeenth Baronet. After the Mirror stung Vaz in true red-top fashion paying rent boys for sex, she hinted very firmly that the MP could look forward to rather more dirt being dished in the very near future. But thus far there has been much indignation, and little revelation.

Heavyweight opinion: The Great Guido


After Vaz got himself onto that Commons committee, Ms Rowe voiced her concern on Twitter – in Tweets which are still live. “So when #Vaz intervened when Leicester City Council tried to evict a tenant suspected of running a male brothel, things become clearer” she began last November, adding soon afterwards “I personally have seen #Vaz come out of a known brothel”. And there was more.

Only two weeks ago she asserted “So EVERYONE is aware, I gave ALL details that I knew via a source regarding #KeithVaz, that he was a Landlord of a brothel in Earls Court … @TheSun had Vaz Male – Escorts Years before ON Video, I Asked why they didn’t run: Said there wasn’t enough evidence … The Sun was more pissed off that their golden boy Vaz had been exposed & that Mirror had the SCOOP of the YEAR”.
There are two significant claims there: that Vaz is alleged to have been the landlord of a brothel in Earl’s Court, and that the Sun has significant dirt on the MP that it has declined thus far to publish. So far, so interesting, but the accusations of improper behaviour are also coming from the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog. Staines is often wayward on facts, but his claims are still live as I type.
This was the Fawkes take: “Keith Vaz was under police investigation over year ago on suspicion of financial corruption and historic allegations of under-age sex. Speaker Bercow was informed of this and fellow MPs demanded – Andrew Bridgen in writing – that he step down from his position on the Home Affair Select Committee”. Vaz has since threatened legal action against Bridgen. And then comes the really damning claim.
It is widely known around Westminster that Vaz – who owes his career to Greville Janner – was the unidentified MP in this Sun front page from last year … Vaz offering to buy cocaine for rent boys is at the mild end of Vaz’s sleazy life and times”. The Sunday Sun front page simply saidCOPS TOLD: TOP LABOUR MP IS PAEDO”. The story is still live.
These are two sources who are independent of one another. Both are effectively saying the same thing: there is a lot yet to be revealed about Keith Vaz, and if and when it comes out, it will be of a career-terminating nature.
The Fawkes folks have not added to their claims for a while: the thought enters that The Great Guido, being an establishment sell-out, has been advised to keep the MP on the back burner. Ms Rowe suffers from no such restriction.
In the days when the deeply unsavoury Kelvin McFilth was editing the paper, the standing joke was that he had a large safe full of dirt on the good and the great which could be used to keep them in line. Now the name of Keith Vaz has been pitched – and by two very different sources – as someone on whom the Murdoch mafiosi have dirt.
So the question has to be put: what dirt has the Sun got on Keith Vaz, and, more importantly, what’s preventing them from dishing it? We’re waiting.

https://twitter.com/CathyCathyFox

Under the Freedom of Information Act I applied to the House of Commons, for the letter, redacted if necessary, that Andrew Bridgen MP sent to speaker John Bercow [1]

berocw-vaz-2

The letter applied for is thought to have been sent to warn the House of Commons of possible vile criminal activities involving Keith Vaz and that they were being investigated by the police.

These allegations and the conflict of interest by Vaz (being investigated for criminal activities whilst on a powerful justice committee) it seems were not passed on by Bercow to anyone. This enabled Vaz, having resigned, from the Home Office Public Affairs Committee to swiftly join the Justice Committee. (To be clear, this is fact not irony).

The person who eventually refused to provide that information under the FOI Act, was none other than …….John Bercow!

Disgraced Keith Vaz lobbies bank boss over friend’s £11million debt despite Commons guidelines

The MP’s staff had previously told Mr Vaz’s friend that he was unable to get involved as he was not the constituency MP

19 NOV 2016

Keith Vaz ignored Commons guidelines to intervene on behalf of a friend who did not live in his constituency.

Yet Vaz ’s staff had previously told a business partner locked in a bitter dispute with the friend that he was unable to get involved as he was not that man’s MP.

On Commons paper, the then-Home Affairs Committee chair asked Royal Bank of ­Scotland boss Stephen Hester to look into an £11million debt owed by the partnership – which also has an address outside the constituency – but the dispute was none of his ­committee’s business either.

He should instead have been referred to his own MP – a protocol Vaz’s staff appeared well aware of when the friend’s estranged brother, Jack Kotak, himself pleaded for assistance.ang

Jack wrote to Vaz asking for help with RBS on December 20, 2012, but was told by a caseworker the MP could not assist.

An email sent to Jack from Vaz’s office said that because MPs are governed by “very strict ­guidelines and parliamentary etiquette” he would need to see his own MP.

The caseworker suggested Jack contact his own MP, Alan Duncan.

But on January 31, 2013, six weeks after turning down Jack, Vaz penned the letter to RBS chief executive Mr Hester (above).

Don Kotek, Shilpa Shetty, and Keith Vaz

Within seven days Vaz’s friend, Midlands businessman Don Kotak, was granted a meeting with senior RBS staff in a bid to resolve the long-running dispute.

But Mr Kotak does not live in Vaz’s Leicester East seat – and guidelines issued to all MPs and recorded in the House of Commons library indicate Vaz should not have taken the case.

Vaz said yesterday: “This case relates to a business within my constituency, Sabras Radio, which serves the wider community in the Midlands.

“Don Kotak approached me to help in his capacity as a director of Sabras.

Since Keith Vaz’s appointment to the Criminal Finance Bill committee this week, it has sat twice, on Tuesday and today. For some reason – to the great disappointment of hacks – Vaz has absented himself from both sessions. Guido can give readers some background as to why that might be…

Guido understands Labour whips have been told that not only is Vaz now under investigation by Scotland Yard, they have been made aware that four files regarding Vaz have been passed to the National Crime Agency. Given that the Bill committee have been taking evidence from the National Crime Agency it would clearly be completely inappropriate for Vaz to attend this committee. If Vaz had attended he would either have to recuse himself or declare his interest. Rather than face the embarrassment, slippery Vaz has unofficially recused himself by not showing up…

Rent-boy shame MP Keith Vaz handed plum job on new influential crime committee despite police probe

14th November 2016

Leicester MP appointed to the new Criminal Finance Bill Committee as well Justice Committee despite cops probing allegations he offered to buy rent-boys cocaine

Mr Vaz was put forward for the job by the Labour Party and will be able to cross-examine witnesses from the Serious Fraud Office and National Crime Agency as the bill makes it way into law.

But furious fellow MPs demand he step aside while being probed by the Met after allegations he offered to buy rent-boys cocaine.

This latest outrage comes just days after Scotland Yard launched the formal robe probe in the the Leicester MP after recordings emerged of him allegedly discussing cocaine with male prostitutes in August.

BBC Reports Keith Vaz Booed in Leicester

Nov 14 2016

Usually the attention-grabbing Keith Vaz is cheered by constituents when he takes to the stage at the annual Diwali light switch-on in Leicester. This year he skulked at the back and was booed by the home crowd. Vaz is clinging to his position on the Justice select committee despite potentially breaking a law he helped draft. He retains the Labour whip and still sits on the party’s NEC despite consorting with prostitutes and trying his hand at procuring drug deals. Corbyn has defended Vaz – who is the subject of a police investigation – claiming it is a “private matter”. 

Compare this to the treatment of Simon Danczuk, a single man who sexted a woman but didn’t meet her let alone break any laws, and was immediately suspended by Labour. At the time Corbyn told the press: He was suspended this morning because of recent revelations. His conduct will now be investigated”. This is a glaring double standard – the only real reason action has been taken against Danczuk but not Vaz is their differing attitudes to the leader.

As Tory MP Edward Garnier told the Leicester Mercury today: 

“This is the justice select committee – it is not the drawing pins committee or the paperclips committee. It is not appropriate for an MP under investigation by the police to be on the committee.”

During a visit to Africa and by another twist of fate, Patti was introduced to 60 babies who were saved from being buried alive because they were HIV positive. On her return to England Patti was determined to do something about the affect and stigma of HIV on the lives of African villagers. She formed a charity Support For Africa and asked the Rt.

Patti hired the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event, which she presented and organised. This was the first of her sell-out “Reaching Out For Africa” events, which she co-produced with Major Sir Michael Parker KCVO CBE at the Royal Albert Hall, starring Sir Cliff Richard, Gabrielle, Uri Geller, Patti herself and BONEY M, amongst others and featured 3,000 Gospel singers whom Patti put together herself.

The event was supported by The Rt. Hon Michael Portillo, Frederick Forsyth CBE, The Rt. Hon Iain Duncan Smith, The Rt. Hon Paul Boateng, The Rt. Hon. Lord Greville Janner QC and the new Miss World. Patti’s second sell out Royal Albert Hall charity event was Football Reaching Out For Africa (FROFA) and starred, among others, footballer Didier Drogba of Chelsea FC, Simon Callow, Boney M, Christopher Biggins, Greg Dyke, David James and The Rt.

Shamed MP Keith Vaz

Disgraced Keith Vaz is at the centre of a police investigation over drug allegations.

It came after a review into claims the Labour MP discussed cocaine with male escorts at sex parties.

Scotland Yard said: “Following that assessment, which included obtaining early investigative advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, the MPS is now ­investigating offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.”

The Met launched the probe on Thursday. It said yesterday a specialist team had been involved in a month-long examination of the drug claims.

Vaz stood down as Home Affairs Committee chairman in September after the Sunday Mirror revealed he paid two men for sex at his London flat on August 27 – as his panel examined laws on prostitution.

Tory Whips save Vaz

List of MPs who voted for Vaz – including 159 Tories on the instructions of the Tory whips

Perhaps the Tories will put Vaz in charge of their toothless floundering child abuse inquiry while they’re at it.

Why did Tory whips herd their sheep through the Aye lobby during the Vaz vote last night? What are they afraid of?

I can only assume that the Tory whips know what Vaz knows about Brittan, Morrison, Proctor…

it’s very telling that this Labour MP has so much Conservative support. Is he a keeper of their dirty secrets?


Government whips covered-up MPs’ ‘scandals involving small boys’ in exchange for loyalty

  • Revealed in 1995 interview how whips would ‘get a chap out of trouble’

  • Gavin Williamson said to have made allegation during EU campaign

  • As Chief Whip he is responsible for enforcing discipline among Tory MPs

When Mr Cameron resigned, he switched sides to back Mrs May who rewarded him by promoting him to her Cabinet as Chief Whip.

His huge influence in May’s inner circle is reflected in the fact he is the only Cabinet Minister to attend her daily morning meeting at No 10 with her inner circle of advisers.

The Keith Vaz Westminster fan club: Why do they protect this man

Andrew Bridgen, Conservative MP for Leicestershire North West, moved a rare motion objecting to the appointment of :Labour MP, Keith Vaz, to the Commons Justice select committee.

During his speech, Mr Bridgen told the Speaker Mr Bercow: “You have often spoken that this place must reflect the society with which we make the laws and I agree with you.

“I respectfully point out to the House that in any other sphere of activity a candidate with so much hanging unresolved over him would be very unlikely to be considered for such an important office.

Earlier, Bridgen had been warned by Mr Bercow to ” desist” after he also referred -under Parliamentary privilege- to a current historical child sex investigation said to be being conducted by Leicestershire Police where four people had come forward alleging child sexual abuse crimes.

Instead of lecturing on what he cannot say, Mr Speaker should have recused himself, given his close friendship with Vaz!

Pompous pipsqueak Bercow rose to his feet to warn Bridgen to ‘desist’ from speaking, since the allegations about Leicestershire Police were not in the public domain.

He prevented Bridgen from using Parliamentary privilege to reveal more details about the police inquiry.

Bercow opened the London office of the Silver Star diabetes charity set up by Vaz in 2007. The charity also gave £2,500 to Bercow’s election campaign in 2010.

The pair share a love of curry, and have been photographed together sitting side by side accepting hospitality at a Premier League football match.

After Vaz spoke in the House following his fall from grace over the rent boy scandal, Bercow gave Vaz a reassuring pat on the back in the Commons chamber.

How fortunate for the beleaguered Vazeline that he has friends he can rely on in times of trouble.

Image result for VAZ AND BERCOW SILVER STAR

It was the Tory Cabinet that stood out in support of him. They included Amber Rudd, the home secretary, who decided that there has been no ” miscarriage of justice in Orgreave” and was obviously happy to think that Mr Vaz had committed no offence.

Other key supporters included Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, Liam Fox, the International Secretary; James Brokenshire, the Northern Ireland Secretary and  former home office minister: David Gauke, chief secretary to the Treasury;Andrea Leadsom, the environment secretary,and Karen Bradley, the culture secretary, who is advised by Craig Woodhouse, a former Sun journalist and David Lidington, leader of the House.

From the debate:

Also on 5 September, I wrote to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards with regard to the right hon. Gentleman. An investigation was instigated and then immediately suspended, as is the procedure, pending the results of the police assessment. Should Scotland Yard decide in due course not to investigate the said Member with regards to potential criminal activity, the parliamentary standards investigation will commence immediately.

It is fair to say that the right hon. Member for Leicester East has quite a history regarding parliamentary standards. He was subject to extensive inquiries by Elizabeth Filkin, the then commissioner, into allegations of misconduct in 2001 and 2002. He was suspended from the House for one month in 2002 for breaches of the MPs’ code of conduct.

Further to my letter to the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, in which I urged Scotland Yard to liaise with Leicestershire police, it has been stated that four witnesses have confirmed that they were recently interviewed by Leicestershire police and that their inquiries have been going on for at least a year. Those inquiries concern allegations that the right hon. Member for Leicester East abused his position in public office—

Why did Amber Rudd, ultimately in charge of , vote this man onto Justice Committee?

  • Detectives may still investigate claims he offered to buy the men cocaine

In an extraordinary move, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox joined seven other Cabinet ministers in helping to install Mr Vaz in the influential role just weeks after he was embroiled in a sex and drugs scandal.

Return of Keith Vaz: Stitch up? Closing ranks?

Why MPs failed to block the appointment of “disgraced” Keith Vaz to the Justice Select Committee.

Close inspection of the division list reveals the Government’s “payroll vote” – ministers and their parliamentary aides – turned out in force to support Mr Vaz.

In fact, a breakdown of the voting suggests that more than 150 Conservative MPs backed Mr Vaz compared to just 38 Labour MPs, plus the suspended Simon Danczuk.

But why? A move to prevent a potentially dangerous precedent? The cosy MPs’ club closing ranks? An establishment stitch-up? Probably all three.

Monday’s debate on Mr Bridgen’s objection lasted only about a quarter of an hour.

But it was a bad tempered affair. Hansard records that the Speaker, John Bercow, intervened no fewer than seven times.

For the record, the Cabinet ministers backing Mr Vaz were: Karen Bradley, James Brokenshire, David Davis, Liam Fox, David Gauke, Damian Green, Jeremy Hunt, Andrea Leadsom. David Lidington, Amber Rudd and Chief Whip – yes, the Government Chief Whip – Gavin Williamson. His deputy, Anne Milton, joined them too. Government whip David Evenett was a teller for the Ayes

On the Labour side, Chief Whip Nick Brown, deputy leader Tom Watson, arch-tribalist John Spellar, veteran Barry Sheerman and Mr Vaz’s fellow Leicester MP Jonathan Ashworth were among his backers.

Besides Mr Bridgen, the MPs voting against Mr Vaz’s appointment were Jake Berry, James Duddridge, Philip Hollobone, Scott Mann and Matthew Offord, tellers Kark McCartney and Nigel Mills and – perhaps surprisingly – Sir Nicholas Soames.

Soames? Now if ever an MP belonged in the establishment lobby it would be Winston Churchill’s grandson, surely?

Four witnesses, including a former lord mayor of Leicester, last week confirmed they had been interviewed by Leicestershire detectives. The inquiries have been going on for at least a year.

Senior MP accused of child sex abuse: Two MPs report same serving Labour politician to police over sex attacks and corruption claims

  • Labour MP John Mann one of the informants to pass information to police 
  • A fortnight ago a Conservative MP told police about the same politician 
  • Unnamed MP is accused of offering political favours to a brothel owner
  • Also claimed they were arrested for indecency in public place with a minor 

A senior Labour MP has been reported to police by two fellow MPs over claims of child sex abuse, The Mail on Sunday has learned.

One of the informants, Labour MP John Mann, passed details about the prominent individual to officers earlier this year.

Then, a fortnight ago, a Conservative MP went to the same police force armed with information about the same individual, some of which had been provided to him by a former Government Minister.

It is believed to be the first time that a sitting MP has been scrutinised by any of the ongoing police investigations into child abuse, representing a further extension of the ever-widening sphere of historic sex allegations.

Mr Mann handed his information over to an ongoing criminal investigation into another public figure, which included links between that figure and the Labour MP.

The Conservative MP’s allegations about the MP, which date back to the late 1980s, include claims that the MP had been arrested for indecency in a public place with a minor – during which he is said to have assaulted the arresting officers.

It is claimed the MP had performed political favours for the owner of a brothel in his constituency in which men consorted with underage males.

The Conservative MP also made further allegations about drink-driving, assault and corruption involving the Labour MP.

A BBC News team, headed by a journalist who specialises in reporting on sex abuse crimes, is also understood to have had access to the information. The team, which has been granted significant resources by bosses, has already started interviewing potential witnesses about the MP. Director-general Tony Hall has been made aware of the special project.

John Bercow:

Sarah Westcott, a young journalist at the Press Association, went out with John Bercow a few times in 2000. He was nearly 40 at the time, yet seemed more like a clumsy schoolboy than a middle-aged MP.

‘He was a bit funny with women. One night, I kissed him on the cheek and he was terrified.’

The lack of a girlfriend was becoming a curse, as local associations tended to look favourably on those who were married or at least had a respectable girlfriend to help with fund-raising coffee mornings.

Not wanting to lose out, Bercow came up with a solution: he borrowed other people’s girlfriends or co-opted friends to take along to selection meetings.

One friend was so confused by the fake girlfriends that, to this day, he believes Bercow is gay.

Background on Bercow:

At 18 Bercow became secretary of the Monday Club when it favoured bans on coloured immigration and “properly financed voluntary repatriation”.

Bercow became national chairman of the ultra-right Federation of Conservative Students in 1986, a year after it disgraced itself by indulging in riotous vandalism at Loughborough.

(21.10.15) “The files that are there, I know are valuable to their ongoing investigation.”

what did Op Midland do?

John Mann said that the file was handed to him by the same individual who had provided it to Mr Dickens in the 1980s, after it was compiled by former Tory MPs Sir Victor Raikes and Anthony Courtney – both now dead.

“There were two files that Geoffrey Dickens gave to Leon Brittan in 1984, this is the second file and the person who gave it to Geoffrey Dickens has now given a copy to me,” Mr Mann said.

“Two questions now arise. Firstly, why were the contents of the file not investigated? Secondly, why was the Prime Minister unable to find this file when he instigated the Wanless Review last year?

Mr Mann said the dossier included a list of alleged paedophiles, including “a small number of names which would be recognised by people who follow politics”, but declined to reveal the identities of those named.

“There are also background documents which will be of interest to police now and would have been of interest to police at the time,” he said.

Mr Mann said that he was “confident” that the dossier was genuine and that the person who passed it to him was the same individual who provided it to Mr Dickens and would be willing to speak to police now.

“The files that are there, I know are valuable to their ongoing investigation,” he said. “It may lead to new investigations as well. I would be surprised if it didn’t, but that is a decision for them to make, not me.”

Was Courtney in Naval Intelligence? Did he inherit safe seat from a man ruined in a gay sex scandal?

Courtney was chosen to follow Ian Harvey as Conservative candidate for Harrow East in early 1959. Harvey had been forced to resign over a homosexual scandal in which he was found in flagrante delicto with a guardsman in St. James’s Park. Courtney kept the seat in a by-election.

INTELLIGENCE IN RECENT PUBLIC LITERATURE

SAILOR IN A RUSSIAN FRAME. By Cdr. Anthony Courtney. (London: Johnson. 1968. 256 pp. 35s.)

“I’m not a Profumo, but …” was the title on the illustrated handbill, with photos to match, which was sent to the British press and the wife and political friends and enemies of retired Royal Navy Commander Anthony Courtney, Conservative Member of Parliament for Harrow East, in August of 1965. Before a year had passed, Courtney had lost his wife, his seat, and most of his business as a result of a KGB political action operation in the heart of London. His book is the story of why the Soviets “framed” him and how he fought back, and almost won. The episode vividly exemplifies how the Soviets employ assiduous data collection and personal provocation in political action.

The 12-year-old John Bercow appeared on the BBC in Crackerjack in 1975.

Bercow’s father drove minicabs for a living and John Bercow went to Finchley Manorhill comprehensive school in north London.

(A bizarre 50-year feud started when his father, Charlie, and his uncle Samson – Alan Bercow‘s father – fell out over the ownership of the family minicab company in Finchley, North London. The feud between John Bercow’s father, Charlie, and Alan Bercow’s father, Samson, dates back to the 1950s and involved a successful minicab company in Finchley, North London, set up by Charlie.)

Bercow’s paternal grandfather, Jack Bercowitch, was from Romania who worked first as a gas fitter and then as a furrier, and in due course opened a shop.

1970 link

Two of his sons, Ralph and Charlie, set up a business called Bercow Motors, in Warren Street in central London, which prospered until the late 1960s, when the council painted yellow lines on the road outside their showroom. Charlie Bercow married Brenda Bailey, a legal secretary and in 1963 she gave birth to their son, John Simon Bercow.

Mr Bercow first became involved in politics as a teenager while attending a school in the Margaret Thatcher’s Finchley constituency.

John Mann said Monday Club member “ George Kennedy Young was ‘key’ to paedophile claims”

Labour MP said GK Young, ex-deputy director of MI6 took part in ‘dubious’ activities

Mann added Mr Young was a ‘manipulator’ who controlled groups of people within which there were paedophile rings in the 1970s or 1980s.

Interesting that Bee Carthew worked closely with Denby, Proctor, Powell, GK Young and … John Tyndall from the NF.

Jeremy Corbyn accused Mr Dickens of irresponsible behaviour and demanded  he withdraw the allegation.

Dickens Dossier:

In a Westminster Hall debate, Mr Mann said George Kennedy Young, who died in 1990, had been named in the first line of the document.

He said: ‘This is an original, I have spoken and met and got a copy from the person who personally handed it to Geoffrey Dickens who then personally gave it to Leon Brittan.

‘And what it says is, first line – GK Young heads up a Powellite faction known as Tory Action. GK Young, George Kennedy Young, was deputy director of MI6 in the past, long dead.

‘The allegations are that he manipulated a group of people and that within that there were paedophile rings. And it goes into detail – who it’s alleged were involved and where.

‘I won’t give all the locations because some would be I think sensitive and would potentially identify people – but London is one, Greater Manchester is another, North Yorkshire is a third one.’

Mr Mann said GK Young may be key in finding out what happened to the dossier.

Gordon Anglesea trial:

A police commissioner has told a jury that he used to drive a senior officer, Gordon Anglesea, accused of sexually abusing boys to Bry Estyn children’s home.

He used to give Anglesea lifts in a police vehicle when asked. He said: “The only place I recall taking him was to Bryn Estyn children’s home. If he wanted to go to Bryn Estyn he would ask me and I would take him.”

Jones said he would not go into the home with Anglesea but just drop him off and carry on with the other duties that he had. He did not know how or when Anglesea would leave.

“I have no idea. I have no recollection of collecting him,” he said

EXCLUSIVE — GORDON ANGLESEA: THE FINANCIAL REWARDS OF CHILD ABUSE

INCOMPETENCE BY North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones led to convicted paedophile Gordon Anglesea keeping his police pension.

The Commissioner has acknowledged Anglesea deserved to lose his pension but, in the eight weeks between Anglesea’s conviction and his death, failed to ask the Home Office to revoke it.

Rebecca understands the pension — which is fully-funded from the public purse — is worth up to £25,000 a year.

Jones’ inaction meant that Anglesea was being paid some £500 a week while he was in prison.

Jones has also decided that his widow, Sandra, should receive a widow’s pension  of 50 per cent.

She will receive up to £12,500 a year for the rest of her life.

Rebecca has also discovered the Commissioner did not consult the Home Office over this decision.

We have written to policing minister Brandon Lewis asking him to issue a “forfeiture certificate” under the Police Pensions Regulations 2015.

This would automatically revoke Anglesea’s pension — and prevent his widow from enjoying the proceeds of his child abuse.

Bercow gave up a political lobbying job with the Tories’ favourite ad agency, Saatchi and Saatchi, to work for Jonathan Aitken, after previously spending a brief period in the City, working as a merchant banker for Hambros.

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

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

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

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

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

After Aitken was jailed for perjury and perverting the course of justice, and he was forced to resign as a cabinet minister,

Bercow went to work for Virginia Bottomley, by then National Heritage Secretary, moving on at the 1997 election when her career as minister ended and he began his as an MP.

Sir Peter, who is married to the former Conservative Cabinet minister Virginia Bottomley, told Radio Four’s Today programme that people were also now wrongly suggesting that he may have visited the Elm Guest House, in Barnes, south-west London, which is at the centre of some of the current claims.

The Elm Guest House is alleged to have been the scene of paedophile activity and sex parties attended by politicians and other prominent figures in the 1970s and 1980s. Visitors are said to have included the late Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith.

IICSA Cyril Smith finding:

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

Sir Charles Irving

A respectable father-of-four, he told how as a young man he was plied with booze by MP Charles Irving before the Tory later forced him to have sex in exchange for £30.

 Pinniger also worked for Charles Irving who offered steady ‘stream of advice’ to CHE

In 1975, a Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality (CHE) was formed by party members, led by Peter Walter Campbell, a Professor of Politics at Reading University. Campbell belonged to the Monday Club, a sub-group of ultra-libertarian Conservatives who believe in privatising everything from the prisons to the police. He was a member of the Albany Society which had campaigned for homosexuality to be legalised in 1967, and the very left-wing dominated Campaign for Homosexual Equality. They might have regarded him as an oddity, but he was like many of them in one striking way – he was a paedophile.

The name “Peter Campbell  – Monday Club” is found on this list of clients of the Elm Guesthouse, a boy-brothel. 

The place was closed down in 1988 but before she died, Mrs Kasir gave a list of regular clients to a former child protection officer, Mary Moss, who was investigating allegations made by victims. It was stunning, full of famous names from the world of show-business, M15 and politics. It included numerous MPs, and “Peter Campbell  – Monday Club”.

It could not refer to anyone else. Other Monday Club members on the list were Conservative MPs Charles Irving, Peter Bottomley and Harvey Proctor.
Not only did Peter Campbell use the boy-brothel, but he advertised it in the newsletter of the Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality, which he edited.

The advertisement mentioned that Elm gave a discount to members  of the “Spartacus club”  – an infamous pederast network that fixed up paedophiles with victims to molest while on trips abroad.
Photo_on_2012_12_21_at_14_28_4

Researchers for NAPAC (the National Association of People Abused in Childhood)  have tracked down a letter Campbell wrote in 1982, at the time of this advertisement, with a handwritten note on it from Peter Campbell to John Rowe, another frequenter of the Elm Guesthouse, saying “I have now inserted the entry about the hotel but can’t find the text about the Dutch adventure   – could you please let me have another copy? – Pete”. The Netherlands was the nearest and most popular destination for the boy-molesting holidays organised by Spartacus Club.  
Campbell could hop on the train at Reading and be in Paddington in forty-five minutes. From there he could take the Central Line Tube or more likely, on his professorial salary, he could afford to take a taxi to Barnes in Richmond. There he would select whatever bewildered, depressed young boy took his fancy, take him to a bedroom or even into the sauna, perform obscene acts on him, check him back in, and then have a drink in the bar before going on to meet friends at the House of Commons, or home to Reading. He was probably a member of the Spartacus club himself, and despite all of that he went on teaching in a British university. This molester of children was paid to teach teenagers aged from 18 upwards.
  Under the leadership of John Major, the CGHE increased in size and strength and by 2010 it had quite simply taken over the party.

Clive Froggatt

When arrested, he claimed he was using the drug as a painkiller for his close friend and Tory MP for Cheltenham Sir Charles Irving, who he said was dying of AIDS

https://www.thefreelibrary.com/COCAINE+SHAME+OF+TOP+TORY+DOCTOR%3B+EXCLUSIVE%3A+NHS+reform+adviser…-a061160679

Clive Froggatt Clive Froggatt, a leading physician in England, and a favorite of prime minister Margaret Thatcher and a very senior government health adviser to both Margaret Thatcher and John Major, was addicted to heroin, allegedly taking up to eight fixes a day.

link

this is the doctor who has been a guru to a succession of former Health Secretaries including Ken Clarke,now Chancellor;

Virginia Bottomley, now Heritage chief;

and William Waldegrave  – special advisor to Patrick Rock.

William Waldegrave, the health secretary, giving details of the two enquiries launched in the aftermath of the case, described Beck as evil. He said that the Commons had shown its support for Mr Janner.

Keith Vaz, Labour MP for Leicester East, condemned the ”cowardly attacks” on Mr Janner. Michael Latham, Tory MP for Rutland and Melton, said that Mr Janner had been the target of ”vile allegations and lies”.

link

As Beck was sentenced, William Waldegrave, the former health secretary announced two inquiries. One would investigate the selection of staff in Britain’s children’s homes. The other, chaired by Andrew Kirkwood QC which is reporting today, would find out why staff at one of Britain’s biggest social services departments failed to act on warnings which would have lead them to the discovery of a catalogue of abuse. Allegations of physical and sexual abuse were first made in 1980 – seven years after Beck started working as an officer in charge of a children’s home. They continued over the next six years, from children and social workers, and on four different occasions were passed on to police. After one investigation, police charged Beck with assault. However, he was subsequently acquitted after a crown court trial in 1982. Despite these allegations, Beck continued working at The Beeches, Leicester Forest East, where he had been officer in charge since 1978. He had spent the previous five years working at The Poplars – a home in Market Harborough – before moving to Ratcliffe Road children’s home. He eventually resigned in 1986 after he was suspended following an allegation of sexual harassment by a fellow member of staff. However he was given references which enabled him to take jobs with Brent and Hertfordshire social services. He also worked with charities.

link

Froggatt also worked on a Tory health service think-tank with MP David Willetts, who was forced to resign for trying to nobble a Commons committee probing sleaze.

Froggatt, an advisor”on heroin movie Eyes Wide Shut starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, publicly claims he is now “clean”.

(Cheltenham – GCHQ & GCHQ Freemason Lodge and PIE member Keith Harding area)

Froggatt was brought into the Conservative fold in 1983 by Sir Norman Fowler and quickly became an adviser to the powerful Downing Street policy unit.

He developed a close friendship with Virginia Bottomley and frequently dined at her house.

Froggatt even told friends that he advised her on everything from how she enters a room to how she does her hair.

Ken Clarke once asked him to stand in for him at an Oxford Union health deb

When he had an idea, he rang Tory ministers and they listened.

From Gerald Ronson’s autobiography: Greville Janner is a wonderful man

Gerald Ronson – vice-pres of NSPCC and friend of Greville Janner, is related to the former Home Secretary Leon Brittan and to former Foreign Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind.

Gerald Ronson was jailed for a year, and fined £5m, for false accounting, conspiracy and theft in Guinness share-trading fraud

From prison to the palace: Gerald Ronson, jailed for Guinness scam, picks up CBE

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2149045/From-prison-palace-Gerald-Ronson-jailed-Guiness-scam-picks-CBE.html

an evening at Covent Garden Opera House some years back when three black-tied men strode onto the empty stage after the main performance and launched into a spirited rendering of “A policeman’s lot is not a happy one” to the uproarious laughter of their guests.

The three included the then-serving Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police John Stevens, the former president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and suspected child rapist Lord Janner QC himself, and Gerald Ronson, a billionaire property dealer who was imprisoned for his part in the huge “Guinness” financial fraud in 1991.

What the three men had in common, apart from a love of opera, was they all sat on the advisory committee of a charity called the Community Security Trust, a private investigation agency run out of the British Board of Jewish Deputies and which has been chaired by Gerald Ronson since he left prison.

According to Janner’s own memoir, the ad-hoc Gilbert and Sullivan performance must have taken place after the first police investigation was derailed. There is no suggestion that John Stevens — who has since been ennobled — did anything improper, but it is still strange that the media has not found anything interesting in the head of Scotland Yard’s night at the opera with the suspected child rapist and jailbird billionaire.

While Mitford was married to Bryan Guinness, they lived in Germany for a short time before moving to England. Mitford’s children had to be tutored privately in England because they weren’t accepted into any local schools. Mitford was also a distant relative of Winston Churchill, and was briefly imprisoned during the war because she was considered a threat to national security.

Jonathan Guinness is the elder of the two sons of Bryan Guinness, 2nd Baron Moyne and his first wife Diana Mitford (later Lady Mosley).

Prostitute in Max Mosley ‘Nazi’ dungeon orgy was wife of MI5 officer

2008

An MI5 agent has been forced to resign after it was revealed his wife took part in a Nazi-style sex orgy with Formula One boss Max Mosley

The wife of an MI5 agent was one of the five prostitutes who took part in a ‘Nazi- style’ orgy with motor racing chief Max Mosley.

It left MI5 facing questions last night over whether one of its officers had helped set up the sting which saw a lurid five-hour video of the sado-masochistic sex session sold to a newspaper.

The agent was forced to resign when the activities of his 38-year-old wife – who used the name Mistress Abi – were revealed.

Security sources dismissed any suggestion that the surveillance officer was involved in the secret filming in a ‘torture dungeon’ at a £2million flat in Chelsea and insisted he was unaware of it until after the story appeared in the newspapers.

His sister, Dame Mary Morrison, has been a Woman of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth II since 1960 

Sir Charles Morrison (1932–2005) sat as Conservative MP for Devizes from 1964 until 1992.

Sir Charles Morrison was one of the investors in Proctor’s shirt shop Cottonrose in Richmond. MP Harvey Proctor,Tory MP for Basildon 1979-1983 and Billericay 1983-1987, was forced to resign following his activities involving a rent boy/spanking.

The third son of John Granville Morrison, 1st Baron Margadale, was Sir Peter Morrison (1944 –1995), was Conservative MP for Chester from 1974 to 1992 and died aged 51 in 1995.

He was Margaret Thatcher’s parliamentary private secretary and deputy chairman of the Conservative Party.

In October 2012 it was alleged that evidence has been seen that linked Peter Morrison to the North Wales children’s homes case, in which up to 650 children in 40 homes were sexually, physically and emotionally abused over a 20 year period.

It has also been alleged that Sir Peter was protected …and that his behaviour was covered up by senior party members and the media.

Morrison is now named in connection with a fresh inquiry into these allegations, which could also implicate the late DJ and TV presenter Jimmy Savile.

John Morrison’s daughter, Dame Mary Morrison, was a Woman of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth II for forty years.  She has been described as one of the queen’s closest confidantes.

10 Sep 2016

Andrew Bridgen was told not to use Parliamentary privilege to raise the matter in a Commons debate 

“To the casual ­observer these events had all the hallmarks of an establishment cover-up.

Andrew Bridgen, Tory MP for North West Leicestershire – 15 miles from Mr Vaz’s Leicester East constituency – wrote to the Speaker on September 3 last year.

Mr Bridgen said that should the ­allegations be substantiated then Labour’s Mr Vaz should be suspended as chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee.

Five days later Mr Bercow replied that he had no power to remove a select ­committee chair and warned Mr Bridgen not to use Parliamentary privilege to raise the matter in a Commons debate.

On 24 May 2013, the High Court of Justice ruled that her tweet, “Why is Lord McAlpine trending? *innocent face*”, was libelous. The two parties agreed to a settlement, and McAlpine donated the damages awarded to Children in Need.

In 2013, it was revealed McAlpine had owned the artwork of convicted paedophile Graham Ovenden – artwork that depicted naked children.

Timing…

The Vaz saga is unfolding just as the Gordon Anglesea trial gets underway:

via WW

It all comes at the same time as Gordon Anglesea jury is sworn in at Mold – and Anglesea and Bryn go to the heart of much of this – and the westmonster links…


In December 1991 — eight months after Anglesea retired from the North Wales Police — the Independent On Sunday wrote about the police investigation into allegations of child abuse at the Bryn Estyn children’s home in North Wales.

The front page article stated:

“According to former residents of Bryn Estyn, Gordon Anglesea, a former senior North Wales police officer, was a regular visitor there.”

“He recently retired suddenly without explanation.”

“Photographs of men abusing boys in the North Wales paedophile scandal were deliberately destroyed by the authorities. Sian Griffiths worked for Clwyd Council in the inquiry office on the 1994 Jillings and six years later on the Waterhouse inquiry which looked into the systematic abuse at the children’s homes.

Labour MP Ann Clwyd today revealed she had read the 1994 report by John Jillings into the abuse before it was pulped and called for it to be published.

She said: “It shows rape and torture… the effects on those young boys cannot be underestimated.”

The report was trashed on the insistence of Clwyd Council’s insurers, who feared a wave of writs from victims.

Operation Pallial was set up in response to allegations regarding Tory peer Lord McAlpine – that he had abused children in North Wales care homes.

RETIRED NORTH Wales Police superintendent Gordon Anglesea was arrested on suspicion of historic physical and sexual assaults against children in December 2013

Anglesea was detained at his Colwyn Bay home in December by officers of the National Crime Agency.

Anglesea was the 18th person to be arrested as part of Operation Pallial, based at North Wales Police headquarters.

Gordon Anglesea

Freemasonry

Anglesea was questioned also about his connection with freemasonry because of an underlying suggestion that there had been a “cover up” in his case. He disclosed that he had become a full member of Berwyn Lodge in Wrexham, in 1982, after being a probationer in a lodge at Colwyn Bay from about 1976.

He had then transferred to a new Wrexham lodge, Pegasus Lodge, in 1984 because it offered an opportunity for swifter advance in freemasonry.

He was aware now from records that one member of the staff at Bryn Estyn had become a member of Berwyn Lodge in April 1984. He had remained a member of the Pegasus Lodge since despite a directive from the Chief Constable of the North Wales Police, David Owen, in September 1984.

A former police chief visited a house where youngsters were plied with drink before men “picked a boy they wanted”, a court has heard.

Boys were abused there, in a caravan or taken to the pub, jurors were told.

The witness described the house as a “centre of paedophile activity”

He said the property in Brymbo, Wrexham, was used by a paedophile ring.

The North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones would drive Gordon Anglesea to Bryn Estyn children’s home when he was a young police constable.

Mr Jones, who retired from the force as an inspector in 2008, said he knew Anglesea professionally in 1982.

He was a constable at the time while Anglesea was an inspector in charge of Bromfield on the outskirts of Wrexham.

Gordon Anglesea trial: police officer was driven to children’s home, court told

28 Sept 2016

A police commissioner has told a jury that he used to drive a senior officer accused of sexually abusing boys to a children’s home.

Arfon Jones, the police and crime commissioner for north Wales, said he drove Gordon Anglesea to the Bryn Estyn children’s home in Wrexham.

Jones said he would not go into the home with Anglesea but just drop him off and carry on with the other duties that he had. He did not know how or when Anglesea would leave.

“I have no idea. I have no recollection of collecting him,” he said.

Abuse charge ex-policeman Gordon Anglesea ‘lied under oath’

10 Oct 2016

A former police superintendent accused of historical sexual abuse has been accused of deliberately lying on oath.

Mold Crown Court heard Gordon Anglesea was trying to “wriggle out” of the fact he “said two vastly different things” during a High Court libel action in 1994, and the current trial.

Last week, during questioning by his own barrister, Mr Anglesea told the court he visited a shower area of a Home Office attendance centre he used to run “once or twice”.

Cross-examining Mr Anglesea on Monday, Eleanor Laws QC, referred to evidence he gave in the 1994 libel case, which resulted in Mr Anglesea being awarded nearly £400,000 in damages.

In 1994, under oath, he was asked: “Did you stand in the showers watching the boys regularly?”

He had answered: “I went to the showers on every occasion the attendance centre was open.”

In 1989 Anglesea was a founder member of the town’s Rotary Club, serving as its president until 1991. He was also a Freemason.

Previously he had been a lay preacher for the Old Colwyn Methodist Church and had at one time and another served as a school governor for St David’s High in Wrexham and Eirias High in Colwyn Bay.

Witness in Gordon Anglesea sex abuse trial says his claims were ‘brushed aside by Police’

The witness, who is not a complainant, said a stall holder he worked for at the local market would take boys to the former Crest Hotel in Wrexham where they would be abused.

The man said he went to the local police station but the officer he spoke to would not take the details because Anglesea was “a chief inspector or something like that”.

Gordon Anglesea: Former police chief guilty of child sex abuse

Oct 21 2016

During the trial, Anglesea was questioned about links to other paedophiles, including Gary Cooke, who is currently serving 14 years in prison, and Peter Howarth, former deputy head of the Bryn Estyn children’s home, who died in prison in 1997.

In 1994, Anglesea was awarded £375,000 in libel damages after media organisations ran stories about his links to abuse at children’s homes in north Wales.

One report, published in 1991, detailed how Bryn Estyn residents claimed he was a regular visitor to the home.

He was granted bail until his sentencing hearing, which will take place 4TH NOVEMBER 2016

Freemasons delete webpage on paedophile Gordon Anglesea’s libel judge:

Convicted paedophile, police superintendent and freemason Gordon Anglesea is dead.

in 1994, Anglesea was famously awarded £375,000 in libel damages against four media organisations who presciently linked Anglesea to allegations of child abuse by suggesting he had been a regular visitor to the infamous Bryn Estyn children’s home in North Wales.

But the libel judge – Sir Maurice Drake – gave a monstrously biased summing up in favour of Anglesea, inwhich he said:

“Experience in the courts shows that where men and women, boys and girls make complaints of sexual assault they do sometimes make up stories, either completely or exaggerate some incident out of all proportion so that it no longer bears any relationship to the truth.

“And of course a complaint that someone has sexually assaulted you is comparatively easy to make up and difficult to rebut. It is the nature of a sexual complaint that no one else is likely to have seen it.”

It turned out – unsurprisingly – that Justice Drake was, like Anglesea, a freemason.

Which is probably why the Provincial Grand Chapter of Hertfordshire has deleted all references to him being a member:

masons-anglesea

Which is a bit strange. because until recently, the Chapter even had a page eulogising Drake as one of their leading members:

drake-masons

The page has been deleted – although an archived version can still be seen, at least for the time being.

Perhaps there should be an investigation made into connections between VIP child abuse and the freemasons.

If investigators could be found who were guaranteed to be free of connections to the Freemasons themselves that is.

A tall order in the UK.

Anglesea’s QC Tania Griffiths –

– single foster parent to traumatised children

Article from 2007

Woman QC leads the way at the office and home; LEGAL WEEK.
LIVERPOOL’S only woman QC has taken the challenge of juggling home and work commitments to a new level.

Family, criminal and personal injury law specialist, Tania Griffiths, has a well-earned reputation as the city’s “tripping queen”, having spent 15 years defending the council against accident claims.

Last night she revealed her parallel life as a single mum to numerous foster children, many who suffered trauma and abuse at the hands of their natural parents, and some of whom she has adopted.

Last night, Ms Griffiths, 47, from Southport, told how she managed to balance a pioneering career with raising an often troublesome family alone.

Last autumn she became only the third female barrister in Liverpool to serve as a Queens Counsel, following in the footsteps of Rose Heilbron, who took silk in the 1960s, and now Judge Margaret de Haas.

Ms Griffiths has often forged new ground in the region’s legal world, becoming the first woman to be accepted to Liverpool’s biggest set, at Exchange Chambers, in 1982.

The daughter of a car painter and a nurse, former Christ the King Comprehensive pupil Ms Griffiths originally wanted to join the police, but changed her mind after starting a law degree at Liverpool Polytechnic.

Ms Griffiths says her title will allow her to pursue more high-profile criminal and family cases in Merseyside, while spending as much time as possible at home in Birkdale, where she lives with her adopted children next door to her father.

“I always wanted to have a family, and I was single, so at the age of 30 there was no man, and I thought if I don’t get a move on I’m never going to get my family,” she said.

I’ve never regarded myself as a role model

Speaking on behalf of Mr Steen, of Heol y Wal, Bradley, Wrexham, his solicitor Chris Saltrese said there had been a grave miscarriage of justice and blasted the Operation Pallial investigation, which was set up to investigate historic allegations of child abuse in the North Wales care system.

“There has been a damning indictment here, and not of my client, but of the National Crime Agency’s Operation Pallial which was hastily set up by the Prime Minister in November 2012 at the height of the Jimmy Savile hysteria.”

He added: “A grave miscarriage of justice was avoided in Mr Steen’s case only by the even-handedness of the judge, the good sense of the jury and the great skill and determination of defence counsel Miss Tania Griffiths QC. My thanks to them all.

A number of high profile defendants are currently facing charges and trial on allegations of historic sexual abuse. Senior Morgan Rose lawyer, Gary Lesin-Davis, instructing Tania Griffiths QC, secured acquittals on all counts, in January, for a client in a case at Liverpool Crown Court involving numerous serious allegations dating back to the 1970’s and 1980’s. The case required painstaking research into handwritten documentation and the advancing of complex legal argument to obtain the permission of the Judge to allow cross-examination upon their content. The client, a father and businessman of impeccable character and reputation, whose business required him to frequently travel to the US and Asia, faced the loss of his good character, livelihood and liberty and his acquittal now allows his reputation to remain untarnished.

Macur Review

The Macur Review is an independent review, chaired by Lady Justice Macur, DBE. It’s a review of Sir Ronald Waterhouse’s inquiry into the abuse of children in care in the former Gwynedd and Clwyd council areas of North Wales between 1974 and 1996.

The Government have redacted, as we have heard, huge swathes of the Macur review, removing in particular the names of individuals who have been the subject of speculation and who have national recognition.

For example, the name Peter Morrison has been redacted from the report, but puzzlingly, other names—Greville Janner, Lord Gareth Williams—have not.

Mr David Jones (Clwyd West) (Con): If I may correct the hon. Gentleman, Peter Morrison’s name does appear in the body of the report. It is important that the hon. Gentleman clarifies that, because it is not redacted.

Ian C. Lucas: It appears in one part of the report, but it is also redacted in other parts of it. His name appears in the introduction, I believe, but in the part that relates to establishment figures, his name is redacted.

Mr David Jones: The point I was seeking to make is that his name is not wholly redacted, and since the hon. Gentleman is making a speech that covers very important matters, it is necessary to clarify that point.

Ian C. Lucas: I am grateful for that clarification, but in the chapter that relates to establishment figures, the two names that I referred to are not redacted, whereas Peter Morrison’s name is. It is very difficult to deduce a line of principle to see why someone made that decision. I think we need to have that information

Amitabh Bachchan poses with Samantha Cameron, who hosted the Silver Star charity reception. Speaker of the House of Commons, Rt Hon John Bercow MP (R), presented the award to Amitabh Bachchan.
Amitabh Bachchan was the guest of honour for a charity event by Leicester-based Silver Star that campaigns to create awareness about diabetes. The actor is the international patron of the charity, known for its mobile diabetes units. The charity event was hosted by Prime Minister David Cameron’s wife, Samantha Cameron, at their office at 10, Downing Street.

Bachchan described David Cameron as “gracious” and “patient” and revealed how Cameron knew him.

“He had heard and knew about me…through the Nanny to his child,” the actor concluded.

Amitabh Bachchan the actor and philanthropist was greeted by British Prime Minister David Cameron at his iconic home at 10 Downing Street.
“….what an honour, a most rare opportunity to be there.  …And a rare visit to the Monarch’s bedroom! Where the to-be- Coronated King or Queen spends the night before the crown is put on,” he added.

Watchdogs facing calls to investigate if cash from Keith Vaz’s diabetes charity, Silver Star was used to pay for sex with rent boys

  • Leicester East MP Keith Vaz set up diabetes charity Silver Star
  • Two £150 deposits paid last month into account by man linked to charity

 The charity says its funds were not used to pay the rent boys, but no one has explained why Mr Dragusin paid them.

An associate said Mr Vaz and the Romanian trusted each other. ‘It was always as if Keith was really looking after Daniel, not a normal employer-employee relationship,’ he told The Times. ‘They seemed to be quite close, put it that way, in the sense that Daniel was doing a lot of work for Keith, and Keith was looking after him.’

From 2008 to 2010 he worked as a chauffeur for Express Rent-a-Car. He later became Mr Vaz’s driver, and was occasionally allowed to borrow a ‘fancy car’, said the associate. ‘He was often driving Keith’s car when he was not on duty.

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

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

“Many people in the Henlow area will have very fond memories of this great man. My mother and I will miss him dearly.’”

Phone hacking: Keith Vaz links to Champneys spa, behind Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Stephenson resignation

Sir Paul Stephenson  is likely to be grilled over his decision to accept hospitality at the Champneys health resort in Hertfordshire, and his connections to Neil Wallis, the spa’s former PR adviser and an ex-News of the World executive who was arrested over the phone hacking scandal last week.

Mr Vaz, the Labour MP for Leicester East, has a long-standing connection to the Purdew family, who own Champneys, including charitable and business links in addition to a close personal friendship.

The latest disclosure centres on Mr Vaz’s links to an exclusive new development in Kerala, southern India, called Eshta. The resort of premium villas and apartments, set in 60 acres of waterways and palm forests, describes itself as “a haven of luxury and decadence” for “the cream of society”.

The directors of the development project include Arjan and Mitesh Vekaria, brothers who own Vascroft Contractors Ltd, a company that worked on several state school building projects in London.

Celebrity endorsers of this monument to housing decadence for the “privileged few” are patrons of Keith Vaz’s very own healthcare charity, Silver Star Diabetes.  Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan

Mr Vaz and Dorothy Purdew, the owner of Champneys, have given testimonial endorsements for the 88-page Eshta development brochure. In the document, Mr Vaz praises the “super-quality” project as an example of the growing business potential of southern India, while Mrs Purdew is quoted as recommending Kerala as “the perfect escape”.

In January 2007, Mr Vaz launched the Silver Star Appeal, a diabetes campaign, which now has a branch in India and has become the Eshta project’s nominated charity. Donors to Silver Star can enter a competition for the chance to win a“lifetime” villa retreat at the resort.

The charity also has close ties with Champneys. Mrs Purdew is listed as a Silver Star patron and a new mobile diabetes assessment unit has been named “Dorothy” in her honour.

Mr Vaz is understood to have spent one night at Champneys after attending the engagement party of his friend, Stephen Purdew, co-owner of the spa. Mr Purdew is also godfather to one of Mr Vaz’s children, who is believed to have undertaken work experience in the MP’s office.

A spokeswoman for Mr Vaz said he has no financial connections to Eshta or its directors and had “never” received hospitality from the resort or visited Kerala.

World Tamils Forum: London Conference, 26 March 2009

Des Browne shows his hand

British MP, Des Browne, recently named as Britain’s special envoy to Sri Lanka was one of those who attended a diaspora Tamil conference in London last week where no criticism of the LTTE holding a captive human shield of civilians in the last sliver of land the Tigers hold in the Vanni.

“These are the people foisted on us to try and find a fair settlement,” senior official sources in Colombo said yesterday. “This was called a Tamil diaspora conference but was obviously a clear last ditch effort on behalf of the LTTE.”

Among those who attended this meeting was veteran American civil rights campaigner, Ref. Jesse Jackson who said that “we (the global community) have a moral obligation to stop the killings” in Sri Lanka, TamilNet reported.

Among those who attended this conference were Mike Griffiths, a member of the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party…

The delegates were addressed by distinguished speakers including American civil rights campaigner Rev. Jesse Jackson and Des Browne MP, the British Special Envoy to Sri Lanka and former defence secretary. Other guests included Lord Falconer, Siobhan McDonagh MP, Simon Hughes MP, Keith Vaz MP and Sir Jimmy Savile.

In a strange twist, Hughes was quizzed about his appearance on Top of the Pops, which was a hotbed of paedophilia at the BBC, and where Jimmy Savile abused thousands of children.

For some unknown reason, Hughes initially denied he had ever been on the show

Simon Hughes:

The majority of the information in the file has been disclosed. An application for closed information in the file is currently subject to a pending appeal in the first-tier tribunal. Therefore the Government cannot comment further in these circumstances.

Savile asked Mrs Thatcher for a ‘Government grant’ and the Prime Minister asked: ‘Are you thinking of millions of pounds?’

When Savile made clear he was talking about a token amount the Government agreed £500,000, a sum so small, the file notes, it did not need Treasury approval.

Intriguingly, the file is missing two documents – a letter from Savile to Mrs Thatcher on a date unknown and a record of a phone call to her in February 1980.

Notes indicate it was decided in October 2012 – just says after the scandal broke – these two items should remain confidential for another 40 years and be exempt from Freedom of Information Act requests.

Donor who paid straight into Nick Clegg’s account becomes his adviser

One of Nick Clegg’s personal donors has been appointed to a key position in the Deputy Prime Minister’s office.

Neil Sherlock, a senior executive at KPMG, the accountancy partnership, will become Mr Clegg’s “director of government relations” in the new year.

Last year, it was disclosed that he had paid money directly into Mr Clegg’s bank account to help fund the Liberal Democrat MP’s private office before he was in government.

Mr Sherlock has also donated money to the Lib Dems and last year his wife, Kathryn Parminter, the former head of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, was elevated to the House of Lords by Mr Clegg’s party.

…concerns over Mr Sherlock’s previous financial connections to Mr Clegg and the Liberal Democrats.

The Daily Telegraph disclosed that Mr Sherlock paid up to £250 a month into Mr Clegg’s private bank account during 2006 to fund the MP’s office. The payments were later made direct to the Liberal Democrats to fund the leader’s office when he was in opposition.

Peter Tatchell: Time To Lower Age Of Consent to cater to a ‘fairly rare’ situ where 2 x 15 yr olds criminalised

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

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

Photo below: Nettie Pollard (EC Member) with Peter Tatchell at the 2011 Annual Conference:

Nettie Pollard was member number 70 of the Paedophile Information Exchange.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Image result for harriet harman pie

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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