ARTICLE: New blow for May’s sex abuse probe as Diana inquest QC agrees to lead rival investigation because of government’s ‘serious shortcomings’

paedoWestminster

  • New investigation established to look into historic child abuse claims
  • It is to run in competition with the Home Secretary’s troubled inquiry
  • Theresa May’s inquiry beset by problems since it was first formed
  • Michael Mansfield QC has been appointed judge of the rival investigation

Theresa May’s troubled child abuse inquiry suffered a fresh setback last night as it emerged that a rival investigation is to be held by a top human rights lawyer.

Michael Mansfield QC, who represented Mohamed Al Fayed at the inquests into the deaths of Princess Diana and Al Fayed’s son Dodi, has been appointed as the judge of a new ‘people’s tribunal’ on historic abuse claims.

The Home Secretary’s official inquiry has barely started, even though it was launched several months ago.

First, ex-judge Baroness Butler-Sloss and then corporate lawyer Fiona Woolf had to resign from chairing it because of their links to figures alleged to have been involved in a cover-up of VIP paedophile rings.

But just like the Government’s inquiry, the new tribunal – set up by child abuse campaigners – has been beset by problems.

Only weeks after the steering committee was appointed, four members resigned, citing attacks on social media.

Among them was ex-social worker Liz Davies, a leading child protection expert.

Organisers insist it is not in conflict with the Government’s inquiry but will instead complement it.

However, its website suggests that there will be an element of competition. It says: ‘This tribunal is necessary because the Government initiative has serious shortcomings.’

Questions have also been raised about its funding. Organisers say they hope to raise money from the public, partly by selling wristbands carrying the slogan ‘sweep away the secrecy’.

The tribunal will hold public hearings across Britain at which abuse survivors will tell their stories, and will produce a report within a year that will be submitted to Theresa May’s inquiry as well as other institutions.

As it is entirely unofficial, it has no legal powers requiring witnesses to come forward.

Mrs May will face questions from MPs tomorrow on the lack of progress with the investigation and the struggle to find a suitable chairman.

At least 100 names have been put forward after Mrs Woolf had to step down, following The Mail on Sunday’s revelation that she has close links to former Home Secretary Leon Brittan.

Ace in the Pack? A Card Game Featuring Establishment Paedophiles

View image on Twitter

This is a difficult issue to grapple with. Infantilising the subject of paedophilia by, ahem, playing it down with a card game seems somewhat inappropriate. However, if the gift is given to many households throughout the U.K. then the weighty evidence and information on paedophilia in the British Establishment will be seen by, and in the possession of, many people. (This information needs to be on the streets -not hidden away on the internet.) I think this constant reminder of a taboo subject outweighs any accusation of making fun of such an national outrage that the Establishment is trying to sweep under the carpet.

Jonathon Blakeley over on the Deliberation website raises a very important point: “It [the card game] features all those well known celebrities from, the BBC – Jimmy Savile, Rolf Harris and many politicians too. It’s collection is also interesting for the many omissions of people still living and very powerful.” -Ed.

ARTICLE: Convicted paedophile tells judge he knows the names of alleged Westminster child sex ring

Michael McAuliffe, Westminster child sex ring, Westminster paedophiles, paedophile, sex offender, politics, politicians

A CONVICTED paedophile dramatically had his sentencing adjourned yesterday after he told a judge he “knows the names” of the alleged Westminster child sex ring.

Serial sex offender Michael McAuliffe, 50, threatened to shout out the names before being bundled back to his cell by prison guards.

Judge Peter Benson, sitting in Bradford Crown Court, West Yorks, had seconds earlier adjourned the case to give police six weeks to investigate the claims.

Judge Benson had earlier passed the defence and prosecution council a letter from McAuliffe’s solicitors before the case was heard and as the paedophile was being led into the dock from cells
His barrister James Bourne-Arton, after reading the letter, told the court: “He has a desire to provide relevant information into investigations into those which concern the 1970s in the Westminster area.

“He has details and information, and more, there are other instances of child abuse and a paedophile ring, which he is willing to provide information on.”

Mr Bourne-Arton admitted McAuliffe’s motivation for helping police is to do a deal and get a more lenient sentence.

The court heard that West Yorkshire Police would need a “scoping interview” for officers to assess the degree of usefulness to their inquiries.

McAuliffe had fled to London from West Yorkshire because he was a closely monitored sex offender in his home town of Haworth following a conviction for possessing child pornography.

But he was brought back to justice after being spotted by an eagle-eyed Bradford police officer who was enjoying a break in the capital.

ARTICLE: ‘Westminster pedophile ring may have murdered my 8yo son’ – ex-magistrate

paedoWestminster

The father of an eight-year-old boy who died in the 1980s has alleged that his son may have been abducted and murdered by members of a Westminster pedophile ring. He claims Scotland Yard were complicit in “covering up” the crime.

Vishambar Mehrotra, a retired magistrate, said he recorded a male prostitute saying in a telephone call that Mehrotra’s son Vishal may have been abducted in the notorious Elm Guest House in southwest London in 1981.

Mehrotra also said despite playing the recording for police officers, they refused to investigate allegations that high-profile judges and politicians were involved in the kidnapping of his son.

(2014) Tory or Lib-Dem MP “drugged and abused me when I was 14″

(1997) Conservative Cllr. Michael Howden -RAPIST

The former pupil who claims he was molested by a Coalition minister revealed the alleged attack left him suffering a lifetime of depression and suicide attempts.

And he accused police of being scared to quiz the politician because of his position in today’s Coalition after they revealed they had no plans to investigate – a year after his allegation was made.

The alleged victim, who we are calling Thomas, told officers investigating historical sex abuse at his school that he was drugged by the minister when he was 14. He woke up naked in bed.

He added: “I felt something that made me feel I had been assaulted.

“I had been assaulted previously and the feeling reminded me of that.

“He gave me a pill wrapped in wax paper. I didn’t ask him what it was. He said, ‘Suck that for a few minutes then chew and swallow it’.

“I went to bed and felt bloody awful. I don’t remember anything after that. The police asked me if I was of the opinion that he abused me while in that condition and I said yes.”

Asked if he had been to the school, the minister only said: “Not only have I never been investigated, but there has been no allegation made and nor are there any grounds for any allegation.”

Thomas said he is furious the police told him they will not be quizzing the political figure as a suspect.

He added: “It’s as if the police are treading on egg shells and they don’t want to upset the ­Establishment and after 12 months they still haven’t spoken to him about this. It’s a bit much really.

“They said they may want to speak to him at some time in the future but have no plans to at the moment.”

Thomas, who lives in the Midlands, claimed the officer leading the inquiry told him that as he had no memory of the alleged attack they would not quiz the politician and he may have been assaulted by someone else.

He said: “They said they aren’t going to arrest or question him under caution because I’ve not made a complaint against him but that’s not true.”

Last November, the alleged victim gave a statement to police investigating accusations of historical child abuse.

During a recorded interview with specialist child abuse detectives he claimed he had been attacked on a number of occasions – but only once by the Minister, the other alleged assaults were by two other men.

He accused one of raping him and subjecting him to sadistic abuse before the alleged assault by the politician, and the other tried to rape him.

Thomas claimed he had attempted suicide three times since the alleged abuse, suffered trauma throughout his life and had been unable to have sexual ­relationships.

He also suffered from depression and a sleeping disorder. The alleged victim added: “I decided to come forward because I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to forget but it plays on your mind and I have ­nightmares and sweats.

“I’ve been told it’s frightening to see me having one of my nightmares, I go raving mad. I have also told a friend what happened and hopefully by bringing this to the surface I can move forward.”

Labour MP Tom Watson, who has spoken at length to Thomas, said he will write to Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders calling for the minister to be ­quizzed.

ARTICLE: Government gave money to notorious Paedophile Information Exchange on the orders of Special Branch, claims Home Office whistleblower

1

  • Former government employee says he saw evidence PIE was given grant
  • He claims the money was paid to group under orders of Special Branch
  • Insider says he thought funding was ‘inappropriate and outrageous’ but his pleas were shrugged off by his boss at the time 
  • Follows report which found that abuse ring ‘might have been covered up’

A Home Office whistleblower today repeated his claims the government department funded the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) on the orders of the police.

Former civil servant Tim Hulbert said money was transferred to the organisation on the orders of the Metropolitan Police’s Special Branch.

Mr Hulbert worked in the Voluntary Services Unit of the Home Office which approved grants to various outside organisations in the late 1970s and early 80s.

He said he went to his manager after seeing that funding was being given to PIE – the lobby group formed in the 1970s to campaign for a reduction in the age of consent – but his concerns were shrugged off.

Former Home Office employee Tim Hulbert said the department provided funding to the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), on the orders of the Metropolitan Police's Special Branch

The retired government worker told Radio 4’s Today programme: ‘Every quarter, the list of current grants that were up for consideration for financial support would be circulated through the office and I believe that I saw a copy of that which referred to the re-funding of PIE.

‘It was an organisation that was campaigning for the reduction of the age of consent to four. I thought that was inappropriate and outrageous and for a government department to be funding it, I thought was wrong.

‘I went to see my boss and he told me, firstly, that PIE was a legitimate campaigning organisation and it did have significant links to the National Council for Civil Liberties and other organisations that were recognised.

‘Secondly, I was told that it was being funded a the request of Special Branch.’
