|Tory homopaedo MP Victor Montagu escaped child sex abuse trial in 1970s
Politician admitted indecent assault but cops and prosecutors let him off with caution when he promised not to see boy again
FULL ARTICLE HERE
A senior Conservative politician escaped prosecution for child abuse in the 1970s when he promised the authorities he would not see the victim again, according to files released by the National Archives.
Victor Montagu, a rightwing Tory MP and one-time political secretary to Stanley Baldwin, was let off with a caution by the director of public prosecutions in 1972 for indecently assaulting a boy for nearly two years.
The decision by Sir Norman Skelhorn QC meant Montagu never stood trial and his paedophile activities were never exposed.
“The assaults, which are admitted, are not of themselves very serious, and if Mr Montagu is prepared to take the excellent advice given to him by Det Ch Insp [Jack] Newman and avoid any contact with the boy in the future I do not think that proceedings are called for,” a letter from prosecutors states.
Montagu was a leading figure in the establishment. He was an MP for South Dorset from 1941 to 1962 and became a member of the Monday Club, a rightwing political pressure group in the 1960s. He inherited his father’s seat and became the 10th Earl of Sandwich in 1964, a title he renounced to stand for parliament again as an independent.
Skelhorn also ruled out a prosecution of the Liberal MP Cyril Smith in 1970 for indecent assaults on children after a police file was sent to him from the Lancashire constabulary.
Montagu died in 1995 but the files on his case, which reveal that a prosecution against him for indecently assaulting a young boy was not pursued, have been kept secret for more than 40 years. They were released earlier this week after an application under the Freedom of Information Act.
The documents remain heavily redacted in parts. They include police statements and letters on behalf of the then DPP and reveal the deference with which he was treated by the authorities.
The files show the boy was interviewed on 10 November 1972 after rumours that he was being sexually abused. Two officers visited Montagu at his home in Mapperton, Dorset, and interviewed him under caution. He was later charged by police with two counts of indecently assaulting a male under 16 on a number of occasions between 31 December 1970 and January 1972 and of indecently assaulting the same boy between 31 December 1971 and November 1972. He was remanded to appear at Bridport magistrates court.
But when the then chief constable of Dorset and Bournemouth, Arthur Hambleton, wrote to Skelhorn for advice on the case, prosecutors chose to give Montagu a caution instead of proceeding with a criminal trial in public.
A note, from the DPP’s office endorsing the decision, said the case was “borderline” but because Montagu was of “previous good character” and there was “no fear of repetition with this boy … we could caution”.
The files show that Montagu had tried to downplay the possibility that he might be prosecuted for offences of indecent assault or indecency with children. He said: “That’s simply romping about with children either with clothes on or not doesn’t amount to that … there was no vice or criminality involved.”
The victim told police Montagu had taken him to London, where the MP had a home in Great College Street near parliament, and he was planning to take him on a skiing trip to Switzerland. “That’s perfectly true,” Montagu replied. “The whole thing is almost entirely true. I’m very glad he didn’t exaggerate.”
Montagu’s youngest son, Robert, told the Guardian he had no idea a prosecution against his father had been dropped.
He wrote in his autobiography last year of the repeated sexual abuse against him by his father when he was between the ages of seven and 11. He said he knows 10 people who were abused by his father as children but he believed there may be up to 20.
“It doesn’t surprise me altogether but I didn’t realise that it went on so late into his life,” he said. “I had no idea he was ever visited by the police at home or charged. My father was a loner, I don’t think he was part of any Westminster paedophile ring, but he was right there at the time.
“He had a house in Great College Street, near the House of Commons, and overlooking the gardens of Westminster School, he was right in the middle of it all.”
Robert Montagu wrote in his autobiography last year of his father’s repeated sexual abuse between the ages of seven and 11
“Nothing must be covered up any more. I hope people continue to talk and write about all this. My father may come up in the inquiry, I am not sure. What is vital is the inquiry goes ahead, and is not shelved by the Tory government.”
Montagu was 66 and semi-retired when he was investigated. In a statement in the files, Newman said the village was “totally dependent on the (Montagu) estate for employment”.
In the note written to his superior officer, the divisional commander, Newman said: “It was thought that his interest in (the boy) was no more than fatherly. From his replies I am certain that he does not realise the seriousness of what has occurred … perhaps some sympathy may be afforded him.”
He warned Montagu that if he assaulted the boy again the child would have to be brought before a juvenile committee “for consideration of putting him into safe custody as being exposed to moral danger. He (Montagu) confirmed that the association would end as from that moment,” Newman wrote.
Montagu admitted almost everything. “I am not disputing anything the boy has told you. I know whatever he has said will be true … It all stems from romping.” He claimed there was no sex involved, because “at 66 I’m past sex”.
But he described how a charge would affect his position in the community. “If the rumour got abroad in this place I should have to leave the country. If the police prosecuted with a substantive charge which I would not deny, I would also have to leave the country after the proceedings.”
He asked that police did not interview his staff for corroboration, but when the officers said they had spoken to his gardener and housekeeper, Montagu replied: “Thank you for telling me. I shall have to ride it out, but I shall now understand their averted looks.”
The officers visited Montagu’s bedroom, and an attic room, to corroborate the descriptions the boy had given them of where the abuse took place. The police told Montagu: “These rooms are as the boy described.” To which Montagu replied: “(He) has a truly remarkable memory in someone so young.”
Dorset police assistant chief constable David Lewis said: “The actions and decisions of people over 40 years ago should not reflect on those involved in the criminal justice system now.
“Dorset police takes any allegation involving child sexual abuse very seriously and investigates them thoroughly. We would strongly encourage anyone who has been a victim of such crimes to speak to us, regardless of whether those offences took place recently or in the past.”

Law chief who decided not to prosecute Labour peer Lord Janner over alleged homopaedo abuse was at the same legal chambers as him
I saw up close how an establishment closed ranks over the Janner affair
As a young reporter, I was given letters that might have helped make a case against the MP for child abuse
A little over 24 years ago, as a young freelance journalist on the Independent on Sunday, I telephoned the Leicester office of Raymonds News Agency and arranged for a reporter to cover an imminent pre-trial hearing at the city’s magistrates court. It was the sort of mundane hearing that would not normally trouble the media. A few days before, in a Leicester pub, I had met a solicitor’s clerk, to whom I had been introduced by a source on a previous story. The clerk told me that at the hearing a former children’s home manager called Frank Beck, who stood charged of sexually abusing the children in his care, would claim the man responsible for the offences was actually Leicester West’s long-standing MP, Greville, now Lord, Janner.
Events played out exactly as I had been told they would. At the hearing’s conclusion, Beck shouted out his claims and was duly wrestled to the floor by the clerk of the court, before being taken back to the cells. Rumours about Janner that had circulated in the city for some years were now recorded by the journalist I had placed there and thus out in the public domain.
Last week, the director of public prosecutions, Alison Saunders, announced that the now 86-year-old Janner would not be facing any charges on the grounds that he was suffering from dementia and therefore unfit to stand trial. It required the CPS to add that “this decision does not mean or imply that... Janner is guilty of any offence”. In turn, Janner’s family issued their own statement praising the man’s “integrity” before adding: “He is entirely innocent of any wrongdoing.”
However, in an exceptionally rare move, the CPS went on to detail the exact charges Janner would have faced had he been deemed well enough: the 22 sex offences, alleged to have taken place from 1969 to 1988, involving nine children and young adults then cared for in children’s homes. These ranged from indecent assaults to buggery. What’s more, Saunders admitted Janner should have been charged in 1991 and that there were two further missed opportunities in 2002 and 2007 when the “evidential test was passed”, meaning there was a realistic prospect of conviction.
Saunders has now appointed a high court judge to investigate the failings, though, if he likes, I can tell him now what went wrong and spare him the trouble.
The establishment, in the shape of his fellow MPs, men such as Labour’s Keith Vaz, Tory David Ashby and the then Lib Dem MP now Lord Carlile, closed ranks. Janner was a barrister and MP, a man who campaigned for justice for the victims of the Holocaust. It simply couldn’t be true. That Frank Beck was eventually found guilty of horrendous abuse charges and sent to prison (where he later died of a heart attack) aided them. Clearly Beck had been trying to save his own skin. The possibility that Janner had also been guilty didn’t seem to occur to them.
Faced by stories of cover-ups around paedophiles such as MPs Cyril Smith and Thatcher’s henchman Peter Hayman, hindsight can make it tough to get a handle on how such conspiracies functioned. Who covered up for whom? Did everybody collude to do so? What was the mechanism? Sometimes, as we can with the Janner case, you simply have to play the tape forward.
All reporters have stories that get away from them. The Janner story is mine. At the pub meeting, I was given copies of letters from Janner to one of his alleged victims. Only if you had been told a backstory do those letters look incriminating. They make arrangements to meet in hotels, talk of “mutual understanding” and sign off with expressions of “love”. My expectation was that these letters would be tested in court alongside other evidence.
Getting Beck’s shouted accusation about Janner suited my purposes. Since it happened in open court it put something on the record that at some point could be used in a story. While the Beck case was ongoing it was all sub judice and nothing further about Janner could be reported. The MP was also bound by the Contempt of Court Act. The moment Beck was found guilty, however, Janner declared in the House of Commons that there was “not a shred of truth in any of the allegations”.
What happened next was crucial. There was a (failed) parliamentary attempt to change the Contempt of Court Act to protect people named during proceedings in the way Janner had been. During the debate, many MPs, including Ashby and Carlile, spoke up for him. Key was Vaz, MP for the neighbouring Leicestershire constituency, who clearly hadn’t been party to the rumours circulating in his home town. He said his dear friend had been the “victim of a cowardly and wicked attack”. That was it. The story was dead. The Independent on Sunday was not a paper to be cowed by pressure from above, but it was simpler than that. Clearly Janner was set up. I don’t even recall being taken off the story. It was just never spoken of again.
Today, Vaz is chair of the Commons home affairs select committee. He enjoys portraying himself as a champion of the voiceless, happy to castigate the Home Office over its handling of the current investigation into child abuse. Last week, I asked Vaz via Twitter whether he had anything to say about Janner, given the CPS announcement. He responded by blocking me. He later unblocked me but, at the time of writing, has still not commented.
The temptation is to demand a law change to stop something like this happening again, but the law is perfectly adequate. It’s the way it has been exercised – or not exercised – that is at issue. In 1991, Janner consulted solicitor David Napley and the barrister George Carman, both now deceased. According to a source with knowledge of that meeting, Carman was astounded, based on what Janner had told him, that he was not later charged.
Leicestershire police are baffled now, too, and are apparently investigating ways of challenging the CPS decision. They even released a statement from an alleged victim. “If he was an everyday person with a normal life and job, justice would [have] been served,” he said. Curiously, it echoes Janner’s comments in 1997 about a man spared a trial for Nazi war crimes because of his age. “I am sorry that he was not tried while he was fit enough to stand,” he said. “There was absolutely no reason why he should have escaped charges forever.”
How was this allowed to happen? Perhaps it was simply force of personality, which I saw at first hand. In May 1992, Janner invited me to tea. I was intrigued. I knew people who worked for him and had been asking pointed questions. He must have known this. If so, he gave no indication. He cheerfully poured the tea, handed round sandwiches and talked light politics. He didn’t give the impression of a man who feared the judicial system catching up with him. As of last week, it never will.
|Crown challenged on failure to bring to trial homopaedo jewish lawyer, lord Greville Janner
Dear Attorney General

Reference: CPS decision on Lord Janner of Blackstone
I write in my capacity as a potential Member of Parliament to challenge the decision of the DPP, Alison Saunders, not to prosecute Lord Janner for alleged crimes, namely 16 indecent assaults between 1969 and 1988, and 6 counts of buggery on under aged boys between 1972 and 1988.
I have read the CPS’ justification for their decision
Please do not refer this letter downwards to the CPS, and please do not treat it as a complaint against the CPS. I have been in lengthy correspondence with the CPS and have used their complaint service already, and I have no confidence in their decisions and processes, for the reasons set out below. I wish to challenge the judgment of the DPP directly. This is now a matter for the Chief Law Officer.
Alison Saunders in her justification document accepts that the evidential basis for a criminal prosecution of Janner is sound. However, she argues that there is no public interest in prosecuting him because he is unfit to plead.
She bases this argument on the evidence of four medical experts who agree that he has dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease, and that they have “general agreement” as to the level of cognitive ability on a Mini Mental State examination.
However, there is no reference to any brain scan having been carried our. If scans were performed but reports on the scans were left out of the CPS justification document, there has been a failure of due diligence in reporting, and Saunders should be rebuked.
If on the other hand brain scans on Janner were not performed, there has been serious negligence. In my extensive correspondence with the CPS on this case I explicitly requested several times that brain scans should be carried out, because they give objective evidence that goes far beyond medical history taking and examination. If they were not carried out Saunders should be invited to consider her position.
If we accept for the sake of argument that Janner is indeed suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, there are three precedents where paedophiles have been tried and convicted of sexual crimes against children. The names are David Massingham, John Hayford and Michael Collingwood. I can supply references if requested, but the CPS should be able to find them.
Either Alison Saunders knew of these cases and negligently failed to deal with them in her report, or she did not know of them, in which case there was a failure of due diligence as a lawyer.
There is no provision in the CPS Code of Practice to exempt people with dementia from facing trial. In the absence of such provision, but in the presence of sufficient evidential basis to proceed, Alison Saunders has used the public interest test.
Now clearly there is a major public interest in bringing to court people who are abused of serious sexual crimes against children, especially children who for one reason or another were in the care of public organisations.
First, sexual abuse has a devastating effect on the subsequent lives of survivors of abuse, and there is a need to demonstrate that society will not tolerate child abuse, even if carried out by VIPs.
Second, the Law itself comes into disrepute if there is a public perception that VIP status confers immunity against justice. You must be aware that already there exists a common perception that this is the case. This view is particularly prevalent in the community of survivors of sexual abuse. If Janner escapes trial, this perception will increase, both among survivors and among the general public. It is not in the public interest for there to be a perception that there is one law for the rich, another for the poor.
Against these two major public interest arguments, the CPS advances the minor public interest argument that money spent in bringing Janner to court could be wasted as he is likely to be judged unfit to plead. This argument is extremely weak. The expenditure would be trivial in comparison with other cases that have failed.
The precedents referred to above are worthy of being considered in court.
Most importantly, a major legal argument needs to be entertained, namely whether a person who passes the evidential test but who might not be fit to plead for reasons of dementia should be tried as if in absentia.
The defence could test the evidence given by Janner’s alleged victims. His accusers could be invited to ask if they can positively identify him, possibly by reference to body characteristics such as moles.
It should be noted also that in coming to her conclusion, Saunders rejected advice of one of UK’s principal authorities on sex offences. Eleanor Laws QC, leading counsel to Leicestershire police’s investigation into Janner, recommended that he be put on trial despite his age and dementia.
In the light of this, the DPP must have consulted with other people in coming to her decision. The names of these people, the advice they gave, and the degree of pressure that they put on the DPP should be made clear to the public.
In conclusion, let me summarise the questions I am raising:
1. The question of whether or not scans have been carried out must be settled.
2. The question of precedents must be considered.
3. The question of public interest, major and minor, needs to be reviewed.
4. Who gave advice to the DPP to persuade her to come to her conclusion?
I look forward to a timely response to all the points made in this letter.

Director of Public Prosecutions under growing pressure to resign over her failure to put jewish lawyer and lord Greville Janner on trial for serious homopaedo offences
The Director of Public Prosecutions was under growing pressure to stand down last night over her failure to put Lord Janner on trial for serious child abuse offences.
Alison Saunders’s position as the country’s top prosecutor looked bleak as she faced unprecedented criticism from the Home Secretary, police chiefs, crime tsars, prominent MPs – and even one of her predecessors.
Mrs Saunders said her job as head of the Crown Prosecution Service was to make the correct legal decisions in difficult cases, not the most popular ones. But she was accused of ignoring the rights of victims and of perpetrating Establishment cover-ups by deciding that Labour peer Lord Janner should not be charged – despite evidence of 22 offences against nine victims dating back to the 1960s.
Theresa May became the first Cabinet Minister to question the DPP’s judgment in ruling that the 86-year-old should not be prosecuted on the grounds that his dementia is now too advanced for him to have a fair trial.
The Home Secretary told the BBC: ‘I was very concerned when I heard about this decision. I have been very clear in everything I have said so far about the child sexual abuse issue… I expect to see justice done.’
Former DPP Lord Macdonald of River Glaven said it would have been better if Lord Janner had undergone a procedure whereby a jury can decide on the facts of a case without apportioning guilt and without a sentence being passed, if a suspect is unfit to plead.
There have been a number of recent court cases in which defendants with dementia have been jailed, and Lord Janner himself has previously called for Nazi war criminals to be put on trial regardless of their age or frailty.
Lord Macdonald added: ‘It might have been wiser for the Crown Prosecution Service to say, ‘‘We’re going to have this matter resolved in the full public glare of a courtroom rather than simply by the DPP.’’ ’
Adam Simmonds, Police and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire, said the decision not to charge Lord Janner on Thursday made it a ‘dark day for our justice system’.
He added: ‘A substantial number of victims of child abuse, who have carried the weight of such heinous crimes with them for the best part of two decades, have been terribly let down in the worst possible way.’
He said the DPP’s ruling went against her previously stated commitment to seek justice for victims, no matter how old the allegations.
Leicestershire Constabulary, which has investigated Lord Janner four times over the past 25 years, is considering an unprecedented legal challenge against the decision.
Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP who exposed the late Cyril Smith as a paedophile, said that the weight of criticism against Mrs Saunders meant something had ‘clearly gone very badly wrong’.
Writing in today’s Mail on Sunday, below, he said: ‘Mrs Saunders is now seen as a roadblock to justice and it’s hard to see how her position remains tenable.’
Mrs Saunders has also come under fire over other high-profile cases – and has been involved in a number of disputes over the competing rights of suspects and alleged victims in sex assault cases. Her decision in the Lord Janner case could be overturned if the complainants use the ‘Right to Review’ scheme introduced two years ago. A CPS employee with no prior involvement in the case would consider if her decision was the right one.
Alleged victims of Lord Janner will eventually be able to share their experiences with the long-delayed public inquiry into historic child abuse to be chaired by New Zealand judge Lowell Goddard.
However, that investigation faces further setbacks as campaigners are seeking a judicial review of her decision to exclude child abuse survivors from the inquiry panel for being insufficiently objective.
The CPS’s handling of previous investigations into Lord Janner is also being reviewed by retired High Court judge Sir Richard Henriques.
Last night the CPS said: ‘The DPP is there to make the right legal decision. Her role is to make these very difficult decisions, not to make popular decisions.’

|Victim claims he was 'abused by very powerful people' linked to alleged VIP homopaedo ring
Richard Kerr, who was abused at notorious Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast, has claimed he was also attacked at a Dolphin Square luxury apartment
FULL ARTICLE HERE
A man has alleged he was molested by “very powerful people” at key locations linked to an alleged VIP paedophile ring as a teenager.
Richard Kerr, who was abused at notorious Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast, has claimed he was also attacked at a Dolphin Square luxury apartment and Elm Guest House, both London.
It is thought to be the first time all three places have been linked to claims of historic sex abuse by influential Westminster figures.
Mr Kerr was abused at Kincora in the 1970s and claims he and two other boys were hand-picked to be trafficked to London in 1977 and abused.
Both of the other men have since taken their own lives, Mr Kerr told Channel 4 News.
Insisting that the VIP paedophile ring did exist, he claims to have been abused in London by "men who had control and power over others", some of whom he believes were politicians.
Asked if he would name his abusers, he said: “I’m still in some fear. I need to know that I can have faith in our government.”
His most violent experience allegedly took place at the Elm Guest House in Barnes, south London, where he claims to have been tied up with his hands behind his back while men took photographs.
When the guest house was raided by police in 1981 it was reported that officers had found whips, chains and ropes.
Mr Kerr also claimed to have been taken to Dolphin Square, a block of apartments near Parliament which is now at the centre of claims of alleged child abuse and murders being investigated by Scotland Yard.
He said: "I could have been 16, 15, 17 ... I remember going in with this guy. He told me to sit down and relax and explained about his glasses.
"He had Waterford Crystal and he wanted me to have a brandy and we had a small one. And then we had a sexual encounter in here."
PA Child sex abuse victim Richard Kerr, who has claimed he was molested by "very powerful people" at several key locations connected to an alleged VIP paedophile ring
After a string of exposés by our sister paper the Sunday People a public inquiry into an alleged cover-up has been announced with 17 claims probed by the police complaints body.
Last July Theresa May, the Home Secretary, announced a major public panel inquiry into whether paedophiles were sheltered in government, the NHS, police, the courts and the BBC.
It has since been rocked by the resignations of two people selected to be its chair - Baroness Butler-Sloss and Fiona Woolf - following accusations that they were too close to the establishment to be independent.
In February it was announced that the inquiry would be chaired by Justice Dame Lowell Goddard, a New Zealand High Court judge.
Earlier this month, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it is looking at 17 allegations of a police cover-up in relation to a VIP child sex abuse ring ranging from the 1970s to 2000s.
An interview with Mr Kerr will be shown on Channel 4 News tonight at 7pm.
|VIP homopaedo murders: Cops didn't tell family about quizzing suspects in killing of boy aged eight
Vishal Mehrotra vanished in 1981 near the notorious Elm Guest House in London and his remains were found a year later
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Detectives accused of covering up the murder of an eight-year-old boy by VIP paedophiles kept quiet about quizzing up to five suspects.
Vishal Mehrotra vanished in July 1981 near the notorious Elm Guest House in south west London and his remains were found in 1982.
Police said they were clueless about the killing and his devastated family were never told of any arrests.
But after obtaining files from the 1983 inquest, the Sunday People can reveal “four or five” unidentified people were questioned and released without charge – and a senior officer admitted they could have been more thorough in checking alibis.
Vishal’s father Vishambar said: “Were these suspects high-profile or not? I have no knowledge.
“I was not kept in the loop. They kept everything to themselves.”
Mr Mehrotra revealed in November that he was contacted by a male prostitute soon after Vishal’s disappearance.
The man said his son might have been abducted by VIP paedophiles operating out of Elm Guest House in Barnes and the tip-off was passed on to the Metropolitan Police.
Vishal’s death is thought to be linked to those of Martin Allen, 15, and another case being probed under Operation Midland.
His skull was found in a woodland bog in West Sussex and the arrests by Sussex Police emerged during the 1983 inquest.
The dossier seen by the Sunday People reveals few cops had access to the files.
Det Supt Gerald Curd told the inquest “four or five” people were held.
He said: “I would not be happy for Mr Mehrotra to see these files because we have done an inquiry and we are satisfied the persons could not have been responsible for the disappearance.”
However, he added: “We took the alibi period to be July 29 and four weeks. We appreciate this might not have been enough but it was the best we could do.”
The inquest dossier also reveals detectives seemingly dismissed as unimportant a pair of adult shoes found in the bog – and failed to find two people seen throwing a sack over a fence close to where parts of Vishal’s body were found.
Police watchdog the IPCC is currently probing claims the tip-off about Elm was ignored by the Met.
The guest house was raided four months after Vishal’s remains were found and dozens of men were quizzed. It was reported at the time that the raids were linked to Vishal’s disappearance.
Mr Mehrotra said: “It seems it all adds up.”
Sussex Police are reviewing Vishal’s murder.
A spokesman said: “There has been no allegation of unlawful behaviour by any officer or staff.”
The 14 referrals being investigated by the IPCC are allegations that:
There was a potential cover up around failures to properly investigate child sex abuse offences in south London and further information about criminal allegations against a politician being dropped.
An investigation involving a proactive operation targeting young men in Dolphin Square was stopped because officers were too near prominent people.
A document was found at an address of a paedophile that originated from the Houses of Parliament listing a number of highly prominent individuals (MPs and senior police officers) as being involved in a paedophile ring and no further action was taken.
An account provided by an abuse victim had been altered to omit the name of a senior politician.
An investigation into a paedophile ring, in which a number of people were convicted, did not take action in relation to other more prominent individuals.
A politician had spoken with a senior Met Police officer and demanded no action was taken regarding a paedophile ring and boys being procured and supplied to prominent persons in Westminster in the 1970s.
In the late 1970s a surveillance operation that gathered intelligence on a politician being involved in paedophile activities was closed down by a senior Met Police officer.
A dossier of allegations against senior figures and politicians involved in child abuse were taken by Special Branch officers.

|Ex-cop claims a ROYAL was in homopaedo ring but inquiry was closed to shield Buckingham Palace
The former Met Police officer says a vice squad cop told him an investigation into Establishment figures was axed for reasons of national security
FULL ARTICLE HERE
A royal was in a suspected paedophile ring being investigated by police before an Establishment cover up, it was claimed.
A former Metropolitan Police officer said he was told a member of the Queen’s family and an MP had both been identified as part of a major child abuse inquiry.
But the operation is said to have been shut down by the Crown Prosecution Service for national security reasons.
The claim came as the Met’s deputy assistant commissioner made a fresh appeal for victims of historic child sex abuse to come forward, and vowed: “We’ll go where the evidence takes us.”
The ex-officer told the Sunday Mirror how a named detective sergeant based at London’s Marylebone police station in the late 1980s spoke to him about the investigation and the fact it had been axed.
The former officer said: “I was in a car with two other vice squad officers. They were discussing a madam who had provided a girl of about 15 to Oliver Reed.
“The detective sergeant said he had just had a major child abuse investigation shut down by the CPS regarding a royal and an MP.
"He did not mention names, but he said the CPS had said it was not in the public’s interest because it ‘could destabilise national security’.”
The former officer added: “What I was told has stayed with me to this day.”
The Sunday Mirror has been given the names of his two colleagues and the officer we spoke to said he was passing his information to the police.
Sir Allan Green, Director of Public Prosecutions, when the probe was said to have been axed, told us he was not aware of any paedophile investigations shut down for national security reasons.
But he said had been asked by a “senior person” if he had heard anything about an MP being involved in child abuse. He said he had not.
Sir Allan would not name the MP, but said he has since died. He refused to say what year he was approached or if the interrogator worked for the CPS.
Reed was never prosecuted over underage sex. The probe into the madam was separate to the paedophile ring.
Meanwhile the Met again insisted it was pursuing claims of abuse no matter who was said to be involved.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Steve Rodhouse said: “We have seen lots of allegations of cover-ups, and I think it’s helpful people are coming forward. We will go where the evidence takes us, without fear or favour, I think that is what the public expect.”
Last week it was announced the Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating 14 separate referrals spanning four decades, amid cover-up claims.
The claims - referred to the IPCC by the Met – allege the force suppressed evidence, hindered or halted investigations and covered up offences because of the involvement of MPs and police officers.
Sarah Green, deputy chairman of the IPCC, said: “I would like to reassure people our investigations will be thorough and robust.”
Former Met deputy commissioner Albert Laugharne said that, while head of Lancashire police, he had been asked by a DPP officer to lie about allegations involving the late Lib dem MP Cyril Smith, later unmasked as a paedophile.
A surveillance operation that unmasked Leon Brittan’s links to child sex abuse is said to have been shut down by Met detectives.
The Sunday Mirror revealed earlier this year how the former Home Secretary was snapped by officers during a 1986 investigation into rent boy orgies run in North London buildings.
But the day before swoops on alleged suspects were due to be carried out, officers on Operation Orchid were told it had been disbanded.
Now the Sunday Mirror and Exaro, a news investigation website, can reveal this is among 14 cover-up allegations against the Met passed to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
A police source told Exaro: “I am surprised this did not happen much earlier.”
Paedophile MP Cyril Smith and top judges were also believed to have been photographed entering the underage sex dens. Sources claim up to 16 high profile figures were due to be arrested.
Brittan was under investigation by the Met over sex abuse allegations at the time of his death in January.
Earlier this month, detectives raided two of his homes.

Britain’s top police officer faces being quizzed by his own detectives over claims that police covered up child sex abuse by politicians.
Metropolitan Police Chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe was an Assistant Chief Constable at Merseyside in 1998 when the force uncovered claims one of Tony Blair’s ministers was a suspected paedophile.
A source close to the Operation Care probe has confirmed the team were aware of allegations the minister was suspected of child abuse in Lambeth, South London.
It was “inconceivable” senior Merseyside officers were not aware the politician had come under suspicion, the source said.
But Sir Bernard “does not recall details about the investigation, those suspected or any associated allegations made regarding politicians”, Scotland Yard said.
Although it did confirm Operation Care was one of a number of investigations Sir Bernard “had oversight of” at the time.
The investigation into the politician was handed to the Met before being shut down when detective Clive Driscoll named the serving Blair minister as a suspect in London in November 1998.
The case tops a list released this week of 14 alleged child abuse cover-ups involving politicians being probed by the Met.
The revelation that the man ultimately in charge of the investigation is embroiled in the scandal sparked calls for an outside agency to take over today.
Specialist child abuse lawyer Peter Garsden said: “If Bernard Hogan-Howe is implicated in one of the allegations then there’s clearly a potential conflict of interest and he shouldn’t have anything to do with it.
“The National Crime Agency would appear to be a better choice to investigate.”
The Daily Mirror has detailed how former Met detective Mr Driscoll had been working alongside Operation Care when issued with disciplinary proceedings after pointing to the politician as a suspect.
The Liverpool-based team had gone to London in the summer of 1998 after arresting care home boss Michael Carroll.
Now aged 63, he had abused children in the North West before taking charge of Angell Road children’s home in Brixton, South London.
Following tensions between the forces, Merseyside kept their investigation to Carroll and left the Blair minister and other suspects to the London force.
But Mr Driscoll was removed just afterwards. Disciplinary moves were later dropped.
One Merseyside officer probing Carroll was Colin Leeman, who became a staff officer for Sir Bernard when he joined Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.
The source said: “The senior investigating officer at the time would have been expected to have reported to his senior officers the fact a serving government minister had come under suspicion.
“It’s inconceivable to think that senior Merseyside officers would not have known."
The Independent Police Complaints Commission revealed this week they will “manage” the investigation that was already being conducted by the Met Police’s Directorate of Professional Standards.
Concerns had already been raised about the Met investigating itself. And the current investigation is restricted to serving and retired police officers, but those implicated include politicians, civil servants and former council employees.
Scotland Yard said: “The Commissioner did not have day-to-day involvement and does not recollect details about the investigation, those suspected or any associated allegations made regarding politicians.
“He absolutely refutes any suggestion he would have stopped or inhibited a criminal investigation of the nature suggested, including that of politicians. It would be wrong to suggest otherwise.”
Meanwhile Theresa May today confirmed there “seems to have been a cover-up” at Scotland Yard over VIP child abuse and said officers may face charges.
The Home Secretary told the Home Affairs Committee: “There needs to be no suggestion of any further cover-up in the work of an investigation of what seems to have been a cover-up.”
She added the abuse inquiry, led by Justice Lowell Goddard, “would not want anything it does to potentially jeopardise investigations that could lead to criminal prosecutions”.
Mrs May also insisted officials who give evidence to the inquiry should be exempt from the Official Secrets Act.
Meanwhile, Labour MP John Mann separately told MPs that victims deserved a “Rolls-Royce” counselling service but councils and prosecutors were instead failing to offer support.

Met cops probed over child abuse 'cover-up' claims
Luxury flat in Pimlico, London connected to a large cellar believed to have been used as a 'holding area' for abuse victims
Police investigating a VIP homopaedo ring have pinpointed a luxury flat where they believe boys were held before being sexually abused by prominent men – and in one case murdered.
The apartment is in upmarket Pimlico, central London, and is connected to a large cellar.
In a chilling development, detectives from Operation Midland believe the premises were used as a holding area for youngsters before they were driven a short distance to abuse parties.
The Sunday People and the Exaro investigative website can reveal detectives also suspect the apartment could be linked to a murder allegedly involving members of the paedophile network.
They are now preparing to take a former abuse victim to the property.
Officers want him to confirm their suspicions that the address is a key site in their investigation.
One line of enquiry is whether a cellar at the flat was used to keep one or more boys before they were sexually abused at another property nearby.
The exact location of the flat cannot be identified at this stage, nor can the evidence that relates to it, for fear of disrupting the police investigation.
Detectives regard the property as potentially crucial but have identified other premises they want to look at.
They plan to take a key witness, known as Nick to protect his identity, on a drive-around of locations in central London that may have been used by the paedophile network.
Nick came forward last year with a series of allegations.
He says a group of influential and wealthy men sexually abused him as a boy at Dolphin Square, the apartment complex in Pimlico where many MPs have homes, and elsewhere.
He also claims to have seen members of a Westminster paedophile network murder three boys. And he is keen to help Operation Midland get to the truth.
In an open appeal, he said: “I would like to make a personal request to all the boys who were hurt alongside me to come forward if you can and if you have not done so already.
“You will not remember ‘Nick’. It is not my real name. But you will recognise what went on and where.
“I totally understand why you might not feel able to, and I know the fear that they instilled in us back then stopped me from speaking out previously. But now is the right time to come forward.
“If the fear of certain members of the inner circle is holding you back, you need not worry.
“It did not stop me, and the police can explain more if you get in touch.
“There are some excellent detectives from the Metropolitan Police who are working on the information that I have given to them. They want to help, they want to listen, and they are not afraid to go where the evidence takes them.
“It is not an easy thing to do. It is really hard to find that courage to come forward and then have to go through with the police what happened.
“But they have made it as easy for me as they possibly could have done.
“They have listened to me. They have kept me updated, and ensured that I am safe. They have made sure that I have support and have maintained my anonymity.
“I also ask others to come forward if you have information about what was going on.
“Were you one of my drivers? Were you suspicious at the comings and goings of boys at all times of the day and night? Any piece of information, no matter how insignificant you think it is, might be useful to the police.”
The Pimlico flat will be among several properties to be included in the police drive-around.
Other places in the smart London district are also of interest as possible locations of child sex abuse involving the network of perverts.
Pimlico is now a key focus for Operation Midland.
The latest development comes after the Sunday People and Exaro last week revealed that Operation Midland had searched four homes, including two belonging to former Home Secretary Leon Brittan, who died two months ago aged 75.
Operation Midland was launched last year after Nick came forward, initially to Exaro, to give an account of child sex abuse at Dolphin Square and elsewhere.
Nick is one of three men who have given testimony about how they were sexually abused as boys by a group of people, including public figures, at Dolphin Square.
Police are also examining claims based on Nick’s evidence that Mr Brittan was present when two unidentified men beat a boy to death following sexual abuse around 1981 or 1982.
Det Supt Kenny McDonald, who is overseeing Operation Midland, said officers who had spoken to Nick thought his account was “credible and true”.
During a Press conference in December, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Steve Rodhouse said police were examining whether children were abused at a number of locations , including the South East, London and at military establishments.
Operation Midland, is a strand of the Operation Fairbank inquiry investigating allegations of historical child abuse.
Fairbank was set up after Labour MP Tom Watson MP asked about the existence of a high-level child abuse network with links to Parliament and Downing Street.

The media blackout of Terry Beans' pedophile activities
shields the vicious homosexual lobby he helps direct.
"The Human Rights Campaign" smears and intimidates
Promotion of homosexuality is designed to redefine and destroy
marriage and family, a long time goal of the Cabalist (i.e.Communist)
bankers, the satanic cult that controls Western society.
by Reality, Publication of Real Women of Canada (Feb. 2015)
A co-founder and board member of the venomous US homosexual Human Rights Campaign (HRC), 66-year-old real estate mogul, Terrence Bean, of Portland Oregon was charged in November, 2014 with sodomy and sexual abuse of a 15 year old boy. Mr. Bean's former partner, Kiah Lawson, was also charged. They allegedly had sex with the 15-year-old in a hotel room rented by Bean on September 13, 2013.
The pair had met the youth through a homosexual web site and enticed him to the hotel room. Mr. Bean and Mr. Lawson subsequently ended their relationship when Mr. Lawson discovered Mr. Bean had been secretly recording their homosexual acts and homosexual relations between Mr. Bean and other young men, with a hidden video camera in his bedroom.
One will not learn of this sordid story from the mainstream media.The latter have maintained a stony silence about it. Why? Because Terry Bean is one of the most influential gay activists in the US, and a close associate of President Barack Obama.
Bean gave $500,000 to Obama's campaign in 2012 and has flown on Air Force One with the President. He is also a Democratic Party "kingmaker".
This is why the mainstream media, including three national networks, the Associated Press, and the New York Times, have all chosen to ignore the story. This is because the story could have potential harmful and cultural implications for the homosexual movement.
THE "HUMAN RIGHTS" CAMPAIGN
Why do we call Bean's organization, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a venomous organization? Let's count the ways:
• Carried out an attack on nine US Catholic bishops who upheld traditional Catholic teaching on the family and homosexuality at the Synod on the Family held in Rome in October 2014.
• Commenced a campaign of hate targeting and harassing pro-family leaders and their families. The campaign includes crudely drawn "wanted posters" of pro-life leaders accompanied by absurd lies about them. It posted information encouraging homosexual activists to contact and harass pro-family leaders and their families and, if possible, get them fired from their jobs.
• Created a sophisticated program for the schools to normalize homosexuality and transgenderism. It does so by instructing children that homosexuality is normal and natural and by telling them that their parents or friends, who portray homosexuality in a less than positive way, are bad people, intolerant, bigoted etc. The program is called "Welcoming Schools". The program includes the requirement of gay-straight alliance clubs in the school, which has little to do with legitimate anti-bullying behaviour, but, instead, leads to punishment for anti-gay opinions or discussions.
• Funded the enforcement of oppressive laws against Christian businesses by instigating expensive lawsuits against them, as well as funding and lobbying for laws to criminalize Christian beliefs.
• Funded federal court cases for "gay marriage" and conducted expensive public propaganda campaigns in the media leading up to the court hearings, to sway the judges.
• Targeted the World Congress of Families (WCF) by planting vicious articles against it in the media, as well as picketing WCF events world-wide. HRC claims that WCF is responsible for the "discriminatory" policies against homosexuals in Africa, Eastern Europe and especially Russia. This is absurd, as the WCF only serves as support and encouragement to pro-family groups around the world. It does not get involved directly in the activities of these pro-family groups.
• The HRC describes WCF as "one of the most influential groups in America, promoting and coordinating the exportation of anti-LGBT bigotry, ideology and legislation abroad".
• In August 2014, HRC demanded that the US Treasury Board remove the charitable tax status from WCF, alleging it had broken US economic sanctions against Russia by furthering the ongoing conflicts in eastern Ukraine by its presence at the Conference on the Family held in Moscow in September 2014.
WHO FUNDS THE HRC?
The HRC is the world's largest and wealthiest homosexual advocacy group. It has a multi-million dollar annual budget which it uses to force its agenda on society.According to its tax return, it had an income of $38,538,422 in 2013-2014. This funding comes from major US corporations. These include Starbucks, Staples, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Sun Life Financial, Morgan Stanley Investments, Diageo Vodka, and the US affiliate of the Toronto-Dominion Bank among others
The Corporation Sponsorship of HRC fundraising dinner, held in Boston on November 22, 2014, included: American Airlines, Apple, Microsoft, Diageo Vodka, Bank of America, Chevron, The Coca-Cola Company, Prudential Insurance, Lexus Auto, Google, IBM, Nike, Goldman Sachs, Hershey, JP Morgan Chase & Co, Dell, Shell Oil, Starbucks and TD Bank (US).
Obviously, all these corporations believe that supporting the homosexual cause is good for business. This is a measure of the media's power and influence by way of the stories they choose to publish or fail to publish.
BULLYING NOT THE CAUSE OF GAY SUICIDES
Homosexual activists insist that every school, whether public, Catholic, Christian or private, must establish a gay- straight alliance club. They base this demand on the supposed need to protect homosexual students from being bullied because of their sexual orientation. This problem, they claim, can be alleviated by providing homosexual students with a "safe" place in the schools where they can be acknowledged and accepted. These clubs, also completely supported by the mainstream media, supposedly protect at-risk homosexual students from alcohol and drug abuse, as well as from suicide.
This argument, however, is a fraud. The real reason for the demand for these clubs, is to establish in each school a centre for the promotion and normalization of homosexuality by providing "diversity training" on homosexuality and to mete out punishment for "anti-gay" opinions or discussion, regardless of the beliefs and values of parents and students.
The hypocrisy of the activists' arguments to establish gay-straight alliance clubs was exposed in an article published in the "Canadian Journal of Psychiatry" (December 2014 Volume 59 no.12 pages 632-638).
According to this article, researchers from Toronto's Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre determined, from charts of the Office of the Chief Coroner of Ontario for youth who died by suicide between 1998 and 2011, that bullying alone is a rare cause of suicide.
According to this study, suicide in youths arises because of a complex interplay of various biological, psychological, and social factors of which bullying is only one. ... Rather, depression (detected in 40% of suicides), conflicts with parents (21%), problems with girlfriends or boyfriends (17%), problems in school (11%) and criminal or legal problems (11%) were the main causes of youth suicide. In fact, according to this study, bullying appears to be a "relatively rare" cause of death by suicide.
This study is similar to a study on suicide published in the April 2, 2014 issue of Asia-Pacific Psychiatry which concluded that suicide among homosexuals is not due to discrimination or family rejection, etc., but is, in fact, mainly due to conflicts arising from the homosexuals' own relationships with their romantic partners.
Bullying is a fraud, and a pretense used by homosexual activists to establish a centre to promote homosexuality
to our children in the schools.
|Thatcher tory henchman Leon Brittan 'photographed entering underage sex den during police investigation'
Jewish lawyer and top tory henchman Leon Brittan

The former MP for Cleveland and Whitby is said to have been snapped by officers on a 1986 surveillance operation focusing on rent boy orgies
Leon Brittan was photographed entering an underage sex den during a police investigation, it has been claimed.
The Tory Lord, who died on Wednesday, is said to have been snapped by officers on a 1986 surveillance operation focusing on rent boy orgies run in North London buildings.
Detectives were watching premises where the boys picked up at King’s Cross were dropped off to be repeatedly raped, say friends of an officer involved.
Big names believed to have been photographed entering the dens included former Home Secretary Brittan, MP Cyril Smith and some top judges.
Sources claim up to 16 high profile figures were due to be arrested.
But the day before the swoops were to be carried out, officers on the investigation, called Operation Orchid, were allegedly told it had been disbanded.
Our sources say it is unclear what happened to the photographs or why the raid was called off.
A friend of the officer on the investigation said: “The rent boys would be driven to flats or garages where large groups of men were waiting.
"These included Brittan and Smith. Pictures were taken as men entered or left buildings where the abuse was taking place.”
The revelations emerge as Brittan’s name is dragged ever deeper into the growing scandal over an alleged cover-up into sex abusers at the highest level of the Establishment in the 1970s
His old friends and colleagues have defended his legacy and called on his accusers to put up evidence or “shut up”.
But a major police investigation into VIP paedophile rings, which includes testimony against Brittan, continues.
And a number of witnesses and victims have provided statements to police.
One key witness known as Nick, who has been described by police as “credible”, has told officers he was abused by Brittan at the luxury Dolphin Square apartment complex, near Westminster.
He gave a lengthy statement alleging three boys were murdered by the VIP paedophiles.
Speaking before Brittan’s death, Nick said: “He would treat me like I was not even human.”
He claimed the top Tory was “nasty, cruel, sadistic and hateful”.
Nick is now said to be “devastated” by the former cabinet minister’s death and fears it may be too late to get justice.
Brittan, who died of cancer at 75, was already under investigation for allegedly raping a woman in 1967. An allegation he denied.
Scotland Yard says this will continue despite his death.
Brittan’s name also appears on a web list of purported visitors to Elm Guest House, near Barnes Common in South West London.
The B&B is said to have operated as a gay and underage brothel in the early 1980s and is at the centre of a huge historic abuse police investigation called Operation Fernbridge.
The Metropolitan Police has refused to discuss any potential suspects in this investigation.
Last year Brittan became mired in the historical sexual abuse scandal after claims that he was handed a dossier containing details of the abuse allegations in the 1980s.
He was accused of failing to act on the evidence passed to him by Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens in 1983.
While he admitted he had met Mr Dickens and had been handed a file, he said he had passed it on to officials and was not contacted about the issue again.
Brittan was elected as MP for Cleveland and Whitby in 1974 and then for Richmond, Yorks, in 1983.
PM David Cameron led the tributes to him last week, describing the former cabinet minister and European competition commissioner as a “dedicated and fiercely intelligent public servant”.
A spokesman for Scotland Yard said yesterday: “We do not comment on ongoing enquiries.”
