Monster Repeatedly Raped Babies

For some people the death sentence is too good.

Edinburgh High Court
A PAEDOPHILE who repeatedly raped two babies and sexually assaulted a little girl in Edinburgh is facing a lengthy prison sentence.

Stuart Young, 37, preyed on the children - who cannot be named for legal reasons - between November 2008 and December 2013.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard how he began raping a little boy when he was just one day old. He continued to abuse him until he was aged three months.

Between November 2008 and December 2013, at various locations in the Capital, Young raped a girl who was aged just six months.

He continued to sexually assault her until December 2013 when she was aged just five.

In July 2013, he abused a girl aged nine-years-old at an address in the city’s Stenhouse area.

Young was finally caught after police learned about his practices. They arrested him after collecting enough evidence to bring him to court.

On Thursday, following a week long trial, a jury took just two hours to convict Young on two charges of rape and another of sexual assault.

Following conviction, temporary judge Paul Arthurson QC deferred sentence for the court to obtain reports about Young’s character.

You need a report on Young's character? Are you serious? Here's one: he's evil, demonic, degenerate, sick, soulless, and monstrous. He should never, ever be allowed to walk the streets again.

The judge warned Young, who lived in Sighthill, to expect a lengthy prison sentence.

Judge Arthurson - who usually sits as a sheriff in the city’s sheriff court - warned: “You have been convicted of some truly depraved and despicable crimes.

“You should expect a sentence to reflect your level of criminality.”

Young, who has previous convictions, spent a week denying any wrong doing. He had entered not guilty pleas.

Following the conclusion of proceedings, Judge Arthurson said the nature of the evidence meant that jurors would be excused from serving on a jury for five year period.

He told them: “Ladies and gentlemen, it is said that serving on a jury at the high court is the greatest service that a citizen can perform in peace time.

“I have decided to excuse you all from jury service for five years. You will not be getting any citations through your door for that period of time.

“I thank you for your service and I hope you have gained some insight into the work that is done here in the high court.”

Defence solicitor advocate Ian Paterson told the court that his client realised that he was going to be sent to prison.

He added: “Mr Young expects that a substantial period of imprisonment will be imposed upon him.”

Sheriff Arthurson deferred sentence and Young was taken to the court room cells.

Young was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register. He will be sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh on May 28.

Philadelphia Monsignor Back in Prison

By David DeKok

HARRISBURG, Pensylvania (Reuters) - A high-ranking Catholic church official in Philadelphia was ordered back to prison on Thursday following the reinstatement of his conviction for turning a blind eye to child sex abuse by pedophile priests.

Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Teresa Sarmina revoked bail for Monsignor William Lynn, 64, and ordered him back behind bars.

Monsignor Lynn
Sarmina, who presided over his criminal trial, had sentenced Lynn in 2012 to three to six years in prison for endangering the welfare of children.

One of the highest-ranking clergyman convicted in the U.S. Roman Catholic Church child sex abuse scandal, Lynn is the first church official sent to prison for mishandling sexual misconduct complaints against priests.

Lynn, former secretary of the clergy for the Philadelphia Archdiocese who oversaw the work of 800 priests, was convicted of failing to supervise a pedophile priest who eventually sexually assaulted a 10-year-old altar boy in 1999. He was found guilty of covering up sex abuse, often by transferring predatory priests to unsuspecting parishes.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court this week reinstated Lynn's conviction, which had been overturned by a mid-level state appellate court. The appellate court had freed him in 2013 after serving about 18 months, and he has been under house arrest while wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet since then.

The Supreme Court found Lynn legally responsible for the "welfare of children" even though he did not directly supervise children but rather supervised priests in direct contact with children.

Lynn's attorney, Thomas Bergstrom, told Reuters he would seek to have Lynn's bail restored.

"I'm going to file an emergency petition with the Superior Court,' Bergstrom said, referring to the mid-level appellate court.

That should put the fear of God into the hearts of those who enable pedophile priests to continue their perversion.

Chad, E.Guinea Troops Accused with French of Child Sex Abuse in C.A.R.

Soldiers from Chad and Equatorial Guinea have been accused in a confidential UN report also implicating French troops of sexually abusing children in the Central African Republic, an advocacy group said Thursday.

The report by UN rights investigators cites testimony from two children who witnessed the sexual assault by the African troops, said Paula Donovan of the AIDS-Free World organization, which has seen the report.

"One of the children interviewed said that he had seen his friend, aged 9 or 10, with two soldiers from Equatorial Guinea," Donovan told AFP in an email response.

Donovan then gave a harrowing account of the sexual abuse allegedly carried out by the two soldiers.

Another child reported witnessing his friend being abused by two Chadian soldiers while a third watched, she added.

The children were among the tens of thousands of displaced people who found shelter at a camp near the Bangui airport during violence that engulfed the poor African country following a March 2013 coup.

The report compiles interviews with six children who were either sexually abused themselves or witnessed incidents involving the French, Chadian and Equatorial Guinean troops.

The children recounted that they approached the troops for food and were forced to engage in sexual acts in exchange for meals and in some instances money.

- Names, descriptions, military rank -

"Some of the children provided first names (at least, the first names given to them by the soldiers); others told the interviewers the names they overheard the abusers using with one another," Donovan said.

"Most were able to provide detailed physical descriptions of the soldiers. Some identified the abusers' military roles."

The internal report dating back to July of last year first appeared in Britain's Guardian newspaper, prompting the French defense ministry to acknowledge that it had opened an investigation of the allegations.

The document was leaked to French authorities by a UN employee, Swedish national Anders Kompass, who has since been suspended with pay.

Anders Kompass you are my hero today. God bless you.

Under UN rules, the world body is obliged to notify member-states if its investigators come across any misconduct by its nations in a foreign country.

Asked whether Chad and Equatorial Guinea had received the report, UN spokesman Farhan Haq said: "I am only aware of the report being sent to France around July 2014."

AIDS-Free World is pushing for a commission of inquiry to shed light on sexual misconduct by peacekeepers and has accused the United Nations of covering up crimes committed by troops sent in to protect civilians.

President Francois Hollande on Thursday vowed to "show no mercy" if the French troops were found guilty.

Amnesty International said the allegations "reinforce the need to put an end to impunity for crimes under international law committed during the conflict, no matter who those suspected of criminal responsibility may be."

Travesty - American Native Residential Schools

It started in the 1870s, and in 2015, there are still people who remember being sent away from their families to attend Native American boarding schools. 

Native Residential School - Kill the Indian in the child!
The programs and the idea was based on a prison program, and statements made by the man who developed that program are horrific: “All the Indian there is in the race should be dead. Kill the Indian in him, and save the man.”That was from a speech given in 1892 by Richard Pratt.

Decades later, the practice was still in place and, in 2015, there are still people who remember their mothers crying as they were taken away, being beaten for speaking in their native language, being forced to cut their hair, and being given new, Americanized names.

There were around 100 boarding schools operating in the United States, and even into the 1960s, teachers there were told that their first responsibility wasn’t to educate students but to “civilize” them. The goal of the boarding schools was to take away everything that gave the students their identity.

Schedules were so strict that in some cases, they were planned out in increments of five minutes, time that was precisely used for things like making beds and brushing teeth. From hairstyles and clothing to learning a new religion, they were taught everything they needed to know to not be Native American anymore.

Ironically, among those that have spoken out about their experiences in boarding schools, where they were discouraged from embracing their native culture, are the Navajo Code Talkers, whose language was of unprecedented importance throughout World War II—quite a difference from their experiences in school.

There are still a handful of these boarding schools in existence, but now, they have a different mission: to educate and to preserve culture. For those that still remember being torn from their families and forced to become something they absolutely weren’t, though, there’s still a lot that needs to be mended.

I am quite sure that this report by Debra Kelly, Listverse, just scratches the surface. If there is any significant differences between the American and Canadian residential schools, I would like to know what it is. 

Canadian schools were rife with physical and sexual abuse along with the horrid psycho-social abuse of killing the Indian in the child. Generational sins means sexual abuse is still a problem for some children, grandchildren and probably great grandchildren of residential school survivors.

RCMP Visit Over Naked Boy a Misunderstanding

Staff Sgt. Brian Cumming of Squamish RCMP said their officer was responding
to a complaint about a child playing in the street, not about
the four-year-old's nudity. (CBC)
RCMP now say their visit to a Squamish, B.C., family's home last week, prompted by a neighbour's complaint, was about safety and not the "nakedness" of a child playing outside.

Naked 4-year-old son prompts police visit

Ian McIlwaine said he was "shaken and very upset" after an officer visited his home April 22 following a complaint from a neighbour about his four-year-old son, Tyler, playing naked in the yard three days earlier.

The story sparked outrage online, with people questioning the police and the neighbour's actions. In a statement, police confirmed the complaint was "about their son being out on the street with no clothes on a few days earlier."

On Wednesday however, Squamish RCMP met with the McIlwaines, apologized for how the matter was handled and said there was a misunderstanding about the complaint.

'The issue is child safety'

Officers were responding to a concern about children playing in the street, not whether they had clothes on, said Staff Sgt. Brian Cumming.

"There was mention that the children had been naked in the street, but that really wasn't the concern. The concern was with child safety in general," said Cumming.

"The nakedness issue is just not the issue at all. The issue is child safety."

The officer was satisfied McIlwaine's two sons were in no danger and closed the file on the day of his visit, said Cumming.

"For reasons I can't fully explain, it became of interest on social media," he said.

Let me explain: The McIlwains thought the incident was about the boy's nakedness. How they came through a meeting of more than half an hour still thinking that is a very good question, and probably one that you and the investigating officer should get to the bottom of.

Family accepts police apology

Following the one-hour meeting with RCMP, McIlwaine said he and his wife accept the police apology.

"We feel completely resolved," he told CBC News.

However, as for the explanation that the complaint was originally about "child safety," McIlwaine said he didn't see his boys playing in the street.

It's not clear why the neighbour, who has not been identified, waited three days to complain to police if the concern was indeed about safety.

McIlwaine said he wishes the neighbour had just spoken to him directly, rather than involving police.

The RCMP don't argue with that notion.

"I can't control that. Would it be a better way to do things? Probably, but people are free to do what they choose to do," said Cumming.

Lord Janner Not Out of Hot Water Yet

In fact, the bath water is heating up
God bless you Judge Goddard
You're my hero today


Suspected paedophile peer Lord Janner faces questions by the judge leading the national inquiry into historic child sex abuse.

Justice Lowell Goddard said she will take personal responsibility for examining the actions of the former Labour MP, and will bring in her own medical experts to determine whether it is possible to confront the 86-year-old over the avalanche of allegations against him.

The announcement is a shot across the bows of Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders, who ruled this month that Janner should not be charged.

New Zealand judge Lowell Goddard
said because of the 'depth of public concern'
surrounding Lord Janner's alleged abuse
she could call him and his alleged victims
She found that despite evidence the former MP could be charged with 22 offences against nine people, it was not in the ‘public interest’ to prosecute because of his dementia.

However Justice Goddard, a senior New Zealand judge, said the huge controversy demonstrated the need for a ‘thorough and wholly independent investigation’ into abuse cases.

In a surprisingly direct statement, in which she referred to the Labour life peer as ‘Janner’, she said she will also probe ‘institutions’ linked to his career.

I like this woman. She's my hero today.

Justice Goddard said there was clear public interest in an ‘exhaustive and critical’ inquiry into ‘institutional decision-making’ and making her findings public. ‘Given the prominence of this case, and the controversy that surrounds it, I am taking responsibility for leading this investigation,’ she said.

I have asked the Director of Public Prosecutions to provide the inquiry with the full files held by her office and she has undertaken to do this. I expect nothing less than full co-operation from all relevant institutions.’

Oooh! I love this woman!


A procedure exists to deal with criminal suspects thought to have mental illness.

In serious cases where a judge rules a suspect is not fit to stand trial a jury can hear the evidence in the suspect’s absence and decide if the individual committed the crimes.

A suspect is not found to be guilty, or not guilty, but a jury do rule on if they have committed the crimes.

Often the judge will order them be detained in hospital, often indefinitely.

The patient's discharge, transfer or leave of absence from hospital cannot be without the consent of the Secretary of State. 

The head of the CPS has stood by her ruling that the case should not go to a special fact-finding hearing for a jury to determine if the allegations against the peer are true.

Alison Saunders said: ‘Dementia in itself isn’t a bar to either a trial or to a trial of the facts, but you have to look at – and the law is very clear about this – is there a need to have a trial on the facts for the public protection?’

Lord Janner
'The depth of public concern surrounding the Janner case exemplifies the need for a thorough and wholly independent investigation into the adequacy of institutional responses to child sexual abuse, particularly where persons in positions of influence are alleged to have abused children in institutional settings and have, for one reason or another, escaped prosecution over a number of years.

'It would of course be quite wrong to pre-judge the outcome of our inquiries in any way, but there is, in my view, a clear public interest in conducting an exhaustive and critical examination of the institutional decision-making processes in this case and in exposing them to public scrutiny.' 

Lord Janner denies the allegations against him and his family have said he is 'entirely innocent of any wrongdoing'.

The independent inquiry into historic sex abuse, ordered by Home Secretary Theresa May, is expected to begin within weeks.

The reformed independent inquiry into child abuse will be able to 'compel witnesses' in a bid to get to the bottom of many difficult and complex claims.

It will probe incendiary claims that Establishment figures were able to prey on children with impunity thanks to their powerful roles in society.  

Yesterday’s announcement revealed for the first time that it will consider potential offences by at least one high-profile figure who is still alive.

Justice Goddard said she will ask experts to reconsider Janner’s health and to examine whether he could be questioned. She has not ruled out the possibility of taking evidence from the retired politician himself or whether there will be public hearings on the matter.

Documents issued by her staff showed she intends to consider the medical evidence given to Mrs Saunders and prior statements by the paedophile suspect. The inquiry will hear evidence from Janner’s alleged victims, along with bodies such as care homes, Leicestershire police, local authorities and the Home Office.

Alison Saunders
It will also look at allegations that ‘improper attempts’ were made to ‘influence the decision-making of relevant institutions by figures of public prominence’.

Labour politician Simon Danczuk said: ‘If Alison Saunders had had the conviction of Justice Goddard, I believe we would be a lot further forward in terms of prosecuting a case against Lord Janner. All credit to Justice Goddard, who is prepared to take a more independent view of what has gone on in this case.'

The Crown Prosecution Service is conducting two of its own reviews – one under the victim’s charter and the second by a retired High Court judge.

The latter will focus on mistakes that let police inquiries into allegations against Janner hit the buffers in 1991, 2002 and 2007.

The CPS said two weeks ago the 'core allegation' was that Lord Janner befriended Beck to access children 'to allow him to perpetrate serious sexual offences' on them.

The politician was first implicated during the 1991 trial of Beck, who ran The Beeches children's home in Leicester. 

A victim told the court the peer regularly abused him. Beck was convicted of child abuse and rape charges. He died in jail in 1994.

Following Beck's trial, Lord Janner, then a Labour MP, stood up in the House of Commons to vehemently deny any abuse, and the CPS decided not to take further action.

Child abuse campaigners have questioned the extent of Janner's mental deterioration after learning that he signed a letter to the House of Lords as recently as this month. 

He has also hosted numerous events in Parliament since being diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2009.

'Victims' call for review of DPP decision not to charge Lord Janner with alleged child sex offences because of Alzheimer's

Alleged victims of Lord Janner have formally asked prosecutors to review their decision not to charge the peer with child sex offences.

Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders announced earlier this month that the case against the former Labour MP was strong enough to bring to court. 

But she provoked outrage by ruling that Janner, 86, should not face trial because he is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Now a solicitor for several of the peer’s accusers has requested that the Crown Prosecution Service should think again.

Liz Dux of law firm Slater and Gordon yesterday wrote to Mrs Saunders asking her to reconsider the decision not to charge Janner, who is accused of preying on boys at care homes around his former Leicester constituency between 1969 and 1988.

Mrs Saunders found there was sufficient evidence to charge Janner with 22 sex attacks on nine children. However, she said the peer should not be prosecuted because his dementia means he could not follow the court proceedings. Janner’s family have denied all the allegations against him.

Victims of crime have had the right to challenge CPS decisions not to bring a prosecution since 2013.

There is a special legal process for defendants who are found to be incapable of understanding court proceedings.

A jury can be asked to consider whether they did the act they are accused of – but not whether they are guilty of any crime.

However, Mrs Saunders ruled that this would be pointless in Janner’s case as he would ‘inevitably’ receive an absolute discharge from the court.

Lord Janner's signature is redacted, but his printing looks pretty good.
Lord Janner signed a letter on April 9
Yesterday the Mail revealed that the Home Office was warned that Lord Janner was abusing young boys two decades ago but did nothing about it.

An MP passed a dossier of information to the department in the hope it would kick-start a fresh police investigation. But instead the paperwork was shelved by officials until it was discovered in 2013 and belatedly passed to Leicestershire Police.

The revelation will heighten fears that the peer, now 86, was the beneficiary of an Establishment cover-up.

The missed opportunity to bring him to justice echoes the case of the late paedophile Liberal MP Cyril Smith who continued in public life despite repeated warnings of his crimes.

It heaps pressure on the Home Office to reveal exactly who knew what and when about the disturbing allegations against Janner.

Labour’s Simon Danczuk – who outed Smith as a predatory child abuser – called on the department to ‘come clean’.

‘The Director of Public Prosecutions has admitted there were previously missed opportunities to investigate Lord Janner,’ he said. ‘The Home Office needs to come clean on what information was passed to officials in 1995.

‘This scandal is getting worse every day and the public are rightly angry at the shambolic way this case has been handled.’

Mrs. Saunders said that the former Leicester MP was investigated in 1991, 2002 and 2006 but mistakes meant he was never charged.

Now the Daily Mail can reveal a fourth opportunity was missed when an unnamed MP passed a dossier to the Home Office in 1995. The politician received a letter linking Janner to prolific paedophile Frank Beck, who died in jail the previous year.

Home Secretary Theresa May ordered the review over fears her department was holding evidence of historic child abuse by influential people. A trawl through more than 700,000 documents identified four ‘items’ that should be passed to police.

UN Investigates Child Sex Abuse by French Troops in C.A.R.

France confirms investigation into allegations of child sexual abuse by troops in Central Africa

 A boy plays among the ruins of a mosque in Bangui
The French government says it is investigating claims that its peacekeepers sexually abused children in the Central African Republic.

It said the abuse was alleged by around 10 children and reportedly took place at a centre for internally displaced people near the airport of the capital Bangui between December 2013 and June 2014.

A report in Britain's The Guardian newspaper said children as young as nine were involved, and that some were abused while searching desperately for food or money.

The regular sex abuse by peacekeeping personnel uncovered here and the United Nations' appalling disregard for victims are stomach-turning.
AIDS-Free World co-director Paula Donovan

France's defence ministry said prosecutors had "immediately" opened a case into the abuse after receiving the news last year, and that police investigators had travelled to the Central African Republic on August 1 to look into the case.

"The defence ministry has taken and will take the necessary measures to allow the truth to be found," it said in a statement.

"If the facts are proven, the strongest penalties will be imposed on those responsible for what would be an intolerable attack on soldiers' values."

Um, I think it was an attack on children by soldiers devoid of any moral values.

France sent troops to the Central African Republic in December 2013 as the country became engulfed in violence following a coup in March that toppled longtime leader Francois Bozize.

UN spokesman Farhan Haq confirmed that its rights investigators had conducted a probe last year following "serious allegations" of child abuse and sexual exploitation by French troops.

Aid worker suspended for leaking UN report

The internal report was commissioned by the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and passed on The Guardian via advocacy group Aids-Free World.

"The regular sex abuse by peacekeeping personnel uncovered here and the United Nations' appalling disregard for victims are stomach-turning, but the awful truth is that this isn't uncommon," Paula Donovan, co-director of Aids-Free World, told The Guardian.

That's for sure. It happened in Colombia, Japan, Afghanistan and Iraq, Papua New Guinea, and wherever military or paramilitary forces operate in foreign countries. Some soldiers seem to think they have a right to help themselves to the bodies of little children. There is probably some racism at work there. The UN and any other body responsible for sending these troops has to step up with a zero-tolerance policy, ZERO-tolerance! The guilty troops should be jailed and the soldiers country fined.

"The UN's instinctive response to sexual violence in its ranks — ignore, deny, cover up, dissemble — must be subjected to a truly independent commission of inquiry with total access."

The UN aid worker, Swedish national Anders Kompass, is based in Geneva and leaked the report to French authorities because his bosses had failed to take action, The Guardian reported.

He has been suspended and faces dismissal for breaching protocol, the paper said.

Mr Kompass is said to have passed on the confidential document before it was presented to senior OHCHR officials.

"This constitutes a serious breach of protocol, which, as is well known to all OHCHR officials, requires redaction of any information that could endanger victims, witnesses and investigators," UN spokesman Farhan Haq.

Since December 2013, violence has displaced nearly 900,000 people in the Central African Republic, including more than 460,000 who have become refugees — 10 per cent of the population.

Myanmar Police Accused of Raping Christian, 15

Churches, Chin State, Myanmar
Two policemen have allegedly raped a 15-year-old girl from Myanmar's Chin state - home to the majority of the country's Christians.

The allegations were made by the girl's father. He filed a report at the local police station stating that two officers had taken her away on a motorbike and raped her after they falsely claimed that she had been called to be with her sister who was ill.

Before the report was submitted the two officers are said to have offered 3,000,000 kyats [about 900 US dollars] to the girl's parents in an attempt to settle the case.

Earlier this year a report by the Kachin Women's Association of Thailand claimed that the military in Myanmar is using rape as a weapon of war. 

The report said that government forces in Myanmar had destroyed 66 churches in Chin State.

Hkanhpa Sadan, the Joint Secretary of the Kachin National Organisation, told a gathering in London in March that the government 'want us to be Burman, to be Budhist and to follow their orders'.

The mainly Christian Kachin are seeking autonomy within Myanmar, and say they are attacked for being both separatist and Christian.

Nearly 300 Girls/Women Rescued from Boko Haram

This is great news, if it's true. Truth can never be assumed in Nigeria, but perhaps things are changing with a new President. We can always hope.
Nigerian Army celebrates
The Nigerian military says it has rescued 200 girls and 93 women from an area where the Islamist militant group Boko Haram is active.

No Chibok girls

However, it said the girls abducted from a school in Chibok in April 2014 were not among them.

The military said the girls and women were freed during operations ending in the seizure of four Boko Haram camps in the Sambisa Forest.

A military spokesman said they were now being interviewed.

Weapons were also seized at the camps which were taken in the latest operation, the military said.

In recent months Nigerian security forces have taken back most of the territory previously under the control of Boko Haram, the BBC's Tomi Oladipo reports from Lagos.

Last October the government said it had secured an agreement for a ceasefire and the release of the girls taken from Chibok, but Boko Haram subsequently denied this. That was under Goodluck Jonathon, who lied incessantly.

The abduction of the girls in Chibok sparked global outrage with many joining a campaign online to free them using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.

Several nations including the US and China vowed to help find them and there have been reported sightings of the girls, but none has been found to date.

Meanwhile, the government of neighbouring Niger gave more details about fighting between its troops and Boko Haram on an island in Lake Chad over the weekend.

It says 28 civilians died when Boko Haram attacked Karamga island and that 46 of its troops died in the battle for the island, along with more than 150 militants. Reports in local media have given a much higher death toll for government forces.

Boko Haram's insurgency, and the army campaign against it, have killed more than 15,500 people since 2012. The violence has recently spread to neighbouring Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

The Nigerian push-back appears to be pushing Boko Haram right out of the country.

Babysitter Charged with Sexually Assaulting Child

SPRINGFIELD, Oregon - A babysitter faces accusations he sexually abused a child in his care.

Springfield Police responded Sunday to a report of possible sex abuse in progress.

The parents told police they found the babysitter in a compromising position with one of the children.

Officers found James Edward Garrett, 34, in the home, serving as babysitter for a child.

Police arrested Garrett on one count of Sodomy in the first degree, one count of Sexual Abuse in the first degree and one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor. 

Police ask anyone with information about Garrett to contact the Springfield Police Department.

Forgive me for kicking a couple when they are down, but, would you leave your child with someone who looks like that? Folks, never allow men to babysit your children unless you've  known them for years and trust them implicitly.

Father 'Shaken and Upset' after Naked 4-year-old Son Prompts Police Visit

4-year-old Tyler took his clothes off after a water fight, leading a neighbour to complain to police

Ian McIlwaine, with sons, Tyler, 4, left, and Connor, 6, have had to deal with a
police visit to their home in Squamish, B.C.,
after neighbours complained Tyler was playing outside naked.
By The Early Edition, CBC News

Ian McIlwaine of Squamish, British Columbia, said his family is "shaken and very upset" after RCMP, responding to a complaint by neighbours, visited the family's home because his four-year-old son was playing in the yard naked.

On Sunday, McIlwaine took advantage of the warm weather to wax his car outside his home, with his two sons, Tyler, and Conner, 6, playing nearby.

"First hot day of spring, and they're itching to get outside after a long Canadian winter and first thing they want to do is have a water fight," he told The Early Edition's Rick Cluff.

Tyler got his pants wet and McIlwaine told him to put on some shorts. Instead, the boy emerged from the house naked.

"It was all what seemed to be harmless innocence. I felt like at four years old, he's still pure, he's still innocent," said McIlwaine.

Squamish Harbour - about halfway between Vancouver and Whistler
Mcllwaine said he didn't hear anything from neighbours at the time. A few days later, he was in Kelowna, B.C., on business and his wife, Margita, called him in tears.

The police were at the house for more than half an hour, telling her that there could be "further action" if the child is found outdoors naked again.

Mcllwaine returned early from his trip and went to the detachment the next day. He was told police had to respond to the call because it involved a child.

"The disturbing part of it was ... I had [previously had] a break-in in the middle of the day, with my wife and children inside the house eating lunch, and the RCMP had never even bothered to come — they said that they didn't have resources," he said.

McIlwaine said his older son is now afraid of the police — fearing he and his brother could be taken away from their parents.

Squamish, British Columbia
Police apologize for kids' fears

The Squamish RCMP declined an interview, but provided a written statement from Staff Sgt. Brian Cumming.

"I have spoken to Mrs. and Mr. McIlwaine, explained that we responded to a complaint from another citizen about their son being out on the street with no clothes on a few days earlier," it reads.

"They did not feel this was handled well by the officers responding despite my explanations, and I offered an apology for the fact that they were not happy and felt their son was now afraid of the police."

I have known several RCMP officers over the years and have nothing but respect for them. However, assuming we have 'all the facts', which is a big assumption, they might have over-reacted to this incident. 

A small child playing naked outside is not a rare thing in any country on a warm day. Had he been out there naked on a cold day, well, that might be worth investigating. 

The article doesn't tell us whether the neighbour feared neglect or abuse. Fear of abuse would simply be absurd and should have been summarily dismissed immediately. Pedophiles generally don't work in plain view, and their victims don't generally run around playing.

I think both the neighbour and the RCMP could have shown better judgment in the case, and I'm glad to see the apology even if Sgt. Cumming put all the responsibility for the upsets on the family.

Youth Volunteer Commits Suicide Days Before Child Sex Abuse Trial

Sarah Horner

Chad Michael Geyen
A former youth volunteer accused of sexually assaulting five boys reportedly died by suicide over the weekend, days before his trial was scheduled to begin.

Chad Michael Geyen, 46, was slated to appear in Anoka County District Court on Monday for the start of jury selection. He was charged with five counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of solicitation of a child to engage in sexual conduct.

Dayton police and the Hennepin County sheriff's office responded to a report Saturday of an adult male found dead with a gunshot wound to his head in Dayton, according to Lisa Kiava, spokeswoman for the Hennepin County sheriff's office.

While the case remains under investigation and Hennepin County officials were unable to release the man's identity Monday, Anoka County officials said the dead man was Geyen.

The Ramsey man's family could not be reached for comment. You tried to reach the family on the day he committed suicide? Really? Sarah, how utterly crass!

"It's a tragedy for the victims and for Mr. Geyen's family," said Leah Palmer, spokeswoman for the Anoka County attorney's office. "It's frustrating when the justice process can't continue but it's also a relief for some of the victims, who are now saved from having to testify and having to go through what is a really difficult situation of having to speak in open court."

Geyen's alleged victims, four of whom are now adults, were between the ages of 4 and 10 when he reportedly began sexually abusing them, according to the criminal complaint filed against him.

He is accused of engaging in hundreds of sexual acts with the minors, including oral and anal sex and inappropriate touching.

The abuse is alleged to have taken place at Geyen's home, at his cabin, at a YMCA, at the Blaine airport and in Geyen's Cessna 177 Cardinal airplane.

The father of two had a private pilot's license and volunteered with the Experimental Aircraft Association's Young Eagles program, which coordinates flights with volunteer pilots for young people interested in flying. Pedophiles always have a mechanism to get to their potential victims.

Geyen flew with more than 100 Young Eagles while he was with the organization.

He also volunteered with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program in the Twin Cities from 1989 to 1993, where he met at least one of his alleged victims, according to authorities.

That young man, now in his late 20s, served as the ring bearer in Geyen's wedding and temporarily lived with him as his foster child.

Jury Convicts Former Bar Owner in 1979 Child Sex Abuse Case

It's hard to believe there was anything going on yesterday in Baltimore besides the riots. But this jury got it done. Good for them.

A former Southeast Baltimore bar owner was convicted by a jury of child sex abuse, in a case in which the allegations dated back more than 35 years.

Nicolaos Trintis, 65, was found guilty Friday of more than a dozen counts of third-degree sex offense and four counts of sexual child abuse. He was acquitted on more serious charges of rape but still faces a maximum sentence of up to 250 years, prosecutors said.

The victim was 10 years old in 1979 and living in an apartment above Bill's Cafe near Dundalk, where her mother worked for Trintis. She said he repeatedly abused her over a three-year period.

She contacted police in 2012, after a child abuse scare involving one of her grandchildren triggered recollections of the abuse. Trintis was charged in December 2013.

"Children often report abuse well after it begins. They either wait until they feel safe, or the realization that what was done to them was so overwhelmingly wrong that they decide to do something about it," Assistant State's Attorney Noelle Newman said in a statement provided by prosecutors.

She praised the victim, who now lives in New Hampshire and made "at least 10" trips to Baltimore to participate in the case.

Trintis denied the allegations and took the stand in his own defense. His attorney, Dwight Pettit, said prosecutors had no evidence other than the word of the victim and her relatives.

"Because of the 36-year time lapse, we weren't able to get anything through discovery to mount or create an objective forensic defense," Pettit said.

Bill's Cafe, a corner bar at Dundalk and Holabird avenues just inside the city line, opened in 1954 and was run by Trintis from the 1970s until an unrelated raid by police in 2013.

The Trintis family is active in the area's Greek community, and Trintis held leadership positions with his church and the local chapter of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association.

He remains free on bail pending sentencing on June 24.

I don't understand that. He's convicted! You know he is going to get jail time, and most likely significant jail time. So why the bail? It makes no sense to me.

Hamilton, NSW Newspaper Slammed for 'Appalling' Child Sex Abuse Blog

28 April, 2015 11:01AM AEST
By Margaret Burin 

Comments by the publisher of the south-west Victorian Hamilton Spectator newspaper have sparked anger amongst survivors of child sex abuse.

On Saturday the Hamilton Spectator's publisher, Richard Beks printed an opinion piece on the topic of child sex abuse.

Survivors of child sex abuse say The Spec Blog entry trivialises criminal behaviour and dismisses its impacts on victims.

It opens by introducing a well-known case of a Ballarat Catholic priest, Leslie Sheahan who had lost his appeal against a three month prison sentence for indecently assaulting a nine-year-old girl.

"Sheahan got a nine-month suspended sentence as well. Not sure to what purpose. At 83 years of age, living in a nursing home and needing a walking frame to get about he's obviously not going to reoffend so a suspended sentence seems pointless," Mr Beks writes.

He then goes on to discuss a case of a Hamilton school teacher who in 2008 was sentenced to 18 months in prison "for merely touching an U16 girl's breast and genitals in a private home in Brisbane some years earlier".

"I'm not nominating him for a medal however, something like this for the middle-age bachelor has the hallmarks of misguided curiosity. There were no threats or intimidation involved so you could argue that this was closer to a case of appalling manners than major crime," he writes.

Misguided curiosity? Are you serious? We're not talking about an adolescent on his first date?

The blog also says that the ABC and SBS are "forever baying for blood" on the matter of child sex abuse "with the courts often responding - with confusing regard to the level of damage caused".

Dr Wayne Chamley of Broken Rites, an advocacy group for victims of child sex abuse, says the piece is bizarre.

"The author of this blog is expressing a view that's not held by our society, thank goodness," he told Steve Martin on the ABC Ballarat and South West Victoria Mornings program.

"We take the protection of children and the rights of children to enjoy their childhood and not be molested by predatory adults as a very serious matter and whoever this person is, his mindset is entirely off the scale."

Mr Beks has not responded to the ABC's request for an interview.

However according to the Warrnambool Standard, the publisher said while he expected some criticism he stands by his comments.

"Something quite trivial shouldn't be looked at the same as a serious crime," Mr Beks told The Standard.

Dr Chamley says he finds the newspaper publisher's comments astounding, and warned that the comment piece could further torment victims and their families.

"I think it appeals to a very small group in society who still see children as fair game and this just reinforces their own prejudices about that."

"The Western Districts of Victoria stand out within Australia as one of the worst hunting grounds for predatory paedophiles in our history, a terrible tragedy," he said.

"It's not just Ballarat. It's Mortlake, Hamilton, you name it. A group of them were moving through those areas. This just confronts the families whose children were molested at the time."

A Cavendish woman named Leonie who was a target of child sex abuse called ABC Local Radio to condemn the opinion piece.

"I think it's appalling," she said.

"I think the man is stupid and ignorant in this manner.

"He has no idea of the effect on victims even if you're part of, pardon the phrase we used to use 'minor touch ups'."

As a publisher, you would think that Beks would have the brains to research the subject before spouting off about it. You would think he would talk to some women or girls who had suffered 'minor touch-ups', and asked them just what effect it had on them. He obviously didn't, or he wouldn't have written that ignorant piece.

Police Ignored Child Sex Abuse Gangs to Chase Labour Targets

Police investigated car thefts, ignored child sex abuse gangs
Whistleblower says money was directed away from protecting children in order to pursue 'priority crimes' 

Police ignored the sexual abuse of hundreds of young girls because they were too busy chasing Labour crime targets that would earn bonuses for senior staff.

Whistleblower Tony Brookes, a former detective who tried to investigate the abuse, said money was diverted away from protecting the children from rape, trafficking and beatings in order to pursue so-called ‘priority crimes’.

The offences, which included car crime, were considered crucial for satisfying a target culture introduced by the last Labour government.

Now it has emerged the same targets were also linked to performance-related pay for top officers at South Yorkshire Police.

It meant that, while young girls suffered heinous abuse at the hands of sex gangs in Sheffield and Rotherham, top brass could have had a perverse incentive to instruct their staff to look elsewhere. 

The targets have been scrapped by the Tories amid concern they were harming policing.

Tory parliamentary candidate Michael Ellis, a former member of the home affairs select committee, said: ‘Labour’s grossly irresponsible obsession with targets led to a perverted sense of priorities whereby senior officers could get bonuses for prioritising car crime while hundreds of young girls were being abused with impunity.’

The first details of the scandal emerged earlier this year when papers from South Yorkshire Police, relating to child abuse in Sheffield, were leaked to the BBC. The documents and the testimony of former officers suggested the force failed to pursue a number of child sexual exploitation inquiries and ignored intelligence that girls as young as 12 were being raped.

A copy of a document from the force’s intelligence database detailed more than 200 girls suspected of being sexually exploited. It listed more than 320 men accused of carrying out abuse, mainly between 2007 and 2010. 

Allegations included rapes, traffickings, child abduction and threats to scald girls by holding kettles of boiling water over them. 

The alleged victims were aged between 12 and 15 while their abusers included Iraqi Kurds, white British, black British, and men of Pakistani heritage.

South Yorkshire police apologise to victims of sexual abuse
In most cases, the files suggest there is no evidence police took any action. In 2007, after an investigation led to two Iraqi Kurds being convicted of abuse, officers asked for resources to mount a much wider investigation in Sheffield. Mr Brookes said he asked for £24,000 and was given £16,000.

But after spending only half that amount he was told the entire budget had gone. He says the other £8,000 was diverted to spend chasing ‘district priorities, to investigate robbery, burglary and car crime’. These priorities were tied to Home Office targets introduced by Labour in 2002.

In Rotherham, the dossier into the scandal there by Professor Alexis Jay described how senior and middle managers at South Yorkshire Police were ‘more focused on dealing with offences such as burglary and vehicle crime’ than tackling child abuse.

At least 1,400 girls in the town were left to be abused by Asian men between 1997 and 2013 because the authorities were also too scared to admit there was a race issue, according to her report published in September.

A second report by government adviser Louise Casey concluded the establishment in Rotherham ignored child sexual exploitation due to ‘misplaced political correctness’. And Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary found senior South Yorkshire officers prioritised burglary and car crime over victims of abuse.

Labour’s crime targets meant forces were aware that chief constables could get the sack if performance was repeatedly inadequate. The link to performance-related pay that has emerged meant senior officers could pocket bonuses worth thousands for catching criminals or reducing the incidence of so-called priority offences.

This system has also been scrapped by the Tories.

South Yorkshire Police said: ‘Chief officer bonuses were ratified as part of a process overseen by police authorities.’

Shocking Rise in Child on Child Sex Abuse a 'National Crisis'

Victims are increasingly being groomed by teenagers barely older than they are

Britain is facing a national crisis over an alarming rise in child-on-child sex abuse, a ­leading charity has warned.

One girl revealed she was raped aged 12 by a 14-year-old at the same school who escaped with just a court caution.

Now 16, the victim, who we cannot name for legal reasons, recalled: “When we first started going out he was really nice but then he changed."

How many times have I heard that? It appears teens are learning techniques from older groomers.

“He would control me by belittling my opinions and calling me fat and ugly.”

Her devastated mother warned other parents: “This abuse is real and it could be happening to your child.”

National crime statistics show 1,653 under-16s were convicted of sex offences in 2013-14 – up 269 on the year before.

The biggest rise is among 15-year-olds, with 358 guilty of abuse in 2013-14 compared with 279 the previous year.

But many more cases never make it to court. The NSPCC reports a staggering 4,200 children and young people under 18 were recorded by police as having committed a sex crime in 2013-14. It reckons a third of abused children were victims of other youngsters.

Barnardo’s says it is seeing more and more teenagers – mostly girls – expertly groomed by not much older youngsters.

Many abuse victims stay silent
The charity claims the scandal is being mostly overlooked as the focus is placed on adult grooming gangs such as those in Rochdale, Rotherham and Oxford.

Last night, Barnardo’s child sex expert Wendy Shepherd said: “This is a national crisis which we ignore at our peril.”

She added: “In most cases the victim believes the abuser is their girlfriend or boyfriend. In gangs in places like London and Manchester, initiation ceremonies involve sleeping with or raping girls, while young women are told they must have sex with gang members if they want to join.”

Wendy blames easy access to internet porn, highly sexual music lyrics and films such as 50 Shades of Grey.

Shockingly, Barnardo’s also reports cases of teenage boys as go-betweens to hook girls up with older men.

The charity’s Kevin Robinson said: “Kids are suspicious of people in their 30s and 40s approaching them.

“But if some 18 to 21-year-old comes up and asks them if they want to go to a party where they can get alcohol or drugs they are tempted.”

Is it possible to educate girls on boy's behavioural issues. I mean, if that really nice boy starts demeaning you, or controlling you, or even if he is just mean to someone else - like a waiter, get away from him. Niceness is not his real character, meanness is.

If someone is controlling you through your emotions, he does not love you and may be completely incapable of love.

Phoenix Woman in Arranged Muslim Marriage Allegedly Raped, Beaten by Groom-to-be

Mohamed S. Abdullahi - forgot what country he is in

A Muslim woman expected to enter an arranged marriage in Phoenix was raped, beaten and sexually assaulted by her groom-to-be after she refused to marry the man, Fox 10 News Phoenix reported on Wednesday.

Mohamed S. Abdullahi, 30, who was arrested on Tuesday, reportedly faces sexual assault and kidnapping charges. Police referred to the alleged victim as a young adult.

The report said that the families agreed on a “Nikah,” a formal Islamic marriage. The woman, who apparently had no desire to be with Abdullahi, ran away but returned about 15 days later to finish school.

Police are investigating details leading up to the alleged assault, investigating whether the woman’s Somali family forced her into the apartment where police say she was raped and held against her will.

The Arizona Republic reported that the woman was brought to the apartment Monday.

One neighbor told WAFB.com that she saw the woman shaking and crying as she was dragged onto the sidewalk. She said she would have called police if she was aware of the situation. 

The situation more than warranted calling the police; a grown woman shaking, crying, and being dragged along. Good grief! Neighbors like that you don't need.

Once in the apartment, police reportedly said Abdullahi placed a mattress in front of the door to prevent her from leaving. The alleged victim eventually managed to send a message to her friend from her tablet, WAFB.com reported.

Abdullahi was criticized by the Arizona chapter of the Center for Arabic Islamic Relations, saying the allegations have no basis in the Islamic faith.

CAIR may be right that it had no basis in Islamic faith, or, at least, in the Quran. But it had plenty of basis in Islamic culture. The girl, having been raped is no longer marriage material except to her rapist. Many rape victims in Islamic countries end up marrying their rapist as the only way to survive. See Zina – Moral Insanity

I suspect that was what the parents and the would-be groom were attempting to accomplish, not realizing that you can't get away with raping girls in America like you can in most Islamic countries. Abdullahi will likely spend much of the rest of his life in jail. The girl should abandon Islam and find a real man to marry.

Retired Detective Breaks Silence on Janner Investigations

Senior detective breaks silence about former case against Janner
Janner - inspecting the chickens? 1972
A senior detective who investigated child abuse allegations against Labour politician Greville Janner has revealed he was ordered to drop the case 'from the very top' – despite uncovering compelling evidence to charge him.

Breaking a 24-year silence over the scandal, former Detective Inspector Kelvyn Ashby told The Mail on Sunday that during an investigation lasting several months in 1991, he found vital clues that backed up claims that Janner had molested a teenage boy at his marital home and a hotel.

Last night the retired policeman spoke of his anger after being ordered not to arrest Janner because he was an MP. 

Mr Ashby said: 'I felt we had done a good job. I felt we had enough to arrest him but we didn't because he was an MP. I think we should have done. I was gutted that we didn't.'

Detective Inspector Kelvyn Ashby said he found vital clues that backed up
claims that Janner had molested a teenage boy at his marital home and a hotel
And he revealed he was left sickened when Janner sent him a Christmas card thanking him for the way he was treated and inviting him to dinner at the Commons.

As the cover-up scandal deepens over Janner – now deemed too ill to stand trial despite evidence he abused nine boys over three decades – The Mail On Sunday can also reveal:

The head of children's charity the NSPCC has demanded the Director of Public Prosecutions explain her decision not to let the case against Janner be heard in court

More than 40 politicians have signed a letter condemning the way Janner has been allowed to escape justice

Home Secretary Theresa May told this newspaper that the Janner case could deter other victims of abuse coming forward

Janner went on more than 20 working trips abroad in the years after he was reportedly diagnosed with 

Janner was a well-known Leicester MP, barrister and author when in 1991 he was suddenly publicly accused of child abuse at the trial of a notorious paedophile. 

Predatory children's home boss Frank Beck claimed he had tried to stop a boy in his care from visiting Janner, and sensationally called the alleged victim as a defence witness.

By then aged 30, the alleged victim told jurors he was only 13 when Janner had befriended him. He claimed the politician forced him into sex at a hotel, at his London home and on a tour of Scotland.

No charges were brought against Janner and he was backed by fellow MPs after telling the Commons he had been framed by Beck and his accuser.

Prosecutor Alison Saunders (right) who ruled that Lord Janner (pictured in 1996) would not face trial over alleged child sex abuse trained at the same legal firm where he was a QC

But today it can be told for the first time that police had been desperate to see Janner brought to justice after discovering evidence that corroborated the alleged victim's account.

We can reveal that officers went to the North London home where the boy was allegedly abused by Janner and found that it matched his description exactly, with an en suite bathroom off the master bedroom.

They also proved that Janner had stayed at the hotel in Scotland where he was said to have taken the boy.

1974 Greville Janner, Labour MP and QC, alleged to have begun two years of abuse with teenage boy living at a Leicester children’s home.

November 1991 Claims against Janner first made public at trial of paedophile children’s home boss Frank Beck, with the alleged victim giving detailed evidence against him.

December 1991 Janner defends himself in House of Commons and is supported by fellow MPs after police decide not to take action against him.

2002 Leicestershire Police launch Operation Magnolia into historic abuse at local children’s home and again investigate Janner, but take no action.

2006 Operation Dauntless looks at allegations of child abuse in 1981 by three men – two who were by then dead, and Janner.

December 2007 Local CPS lawyers decide not to charge Janner over the latest allegations – and breach normal procedures by not telling bosses in London since the case involved an MP.

2009 Janner diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, according to the CPS, but continues to speak and vote in the House of Lords, as well as going on 20 working trips abroad, in the next few years.

December 2013 Janner’s home in North London searched as police begin a new investigation, Operation Enamel, into historic sex abuse claims.

March 2014 Officers search Janner’s office in the House of Lords.

April 9, 2015 House of Lords receives letter, purportedly from Janner, saying he wants to continue his leave of absence, which started in October 2014.

April 16, 2015 CPS announce they have evidence to charge Janner with 22 child sex offences against nine victims, but will not do so because he has severe dementia.

Speaking in detail for the first time about the case last night Mr Ashby, now 65, said: 'He gave us an account of Janner's house, how many rooms it had and the layout of the furniture. When we visited, Janner had long since moved but the house was exactly as the alleged victim said it was. I was in no doubt he had been in that house.

'We looked at the Scottish tour and believed him, we established Janner stayed in those hotels but could not prove the boy was with him. But we had the note, his testimony, and the fact a boy had been taken out of care to stay in London with an MP. 

'It meant we had enough in my eyes.' Mr Ashby – at the time a Detective Inspector and the Senior Investigating Officer in the Beck case – was working with a Detective Sergeant called Mick Creedon, now Chief Constable of Derbyshire Police.

Detective Sergeant called Mick Creedon
Mr Ashby said: 'Mick and I believed an arrestable offence had been committed and that once we arrested him we could search his house and see if there was any material that helped corroborate what the alleged victim said.

'Someone higher-up told us that we couldn't just arrest an MP and it went no further. We were told that by someone senior, who I can't name, but the order had to have come from the very top. I'm sure my bosses' hands were tied.

'I was extremely frustrated. We might have found more in his house, or maybe more victims would have come forward. Janner should have been arrested. He was treated differently because he was an MP.' Janner was questioned at a police station in Leicester but refused to answer questions.

Mr Ashby, who left the police in 2002, went on: 'The bit that really got me was that I later got a Christmas card in the post from Greville Janner. 

'The card was an official House of Commons Christmas card and was handwritten. It said something like 'I was very pleased with the way you treated me' and invited me and my wife for a dinner at the House of Commons. I couldn't believe it.

'My wife was disgusted, as was I. Needless to say we never replied and never went. I'm only speaking now because the police investigation has stalled. Also, I have to think about the victims and I feel they have been let down.'

A decade later in 2002, Leicestershire Police began another investigation against Janner but no charges were brought.

Then after a third probe in 2006, by which time Janner had been given a peerage by Tony Blair, detectives passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service but local officials chose not to charge him.

By then, it would reflect on Tony Blair's poor judgment to charge him. Blair certainly displayed poor judgment in giving him peerage.

In 2013 Leicestershire Police began yet another investigation against Janner and got as far as searching his London home and House of Lords office, while more than 20 victims gave statements against him.

The cover-up scandal deepens over Janner (pictured) – now deemed too ill to stand trial despite evidence he abused nine boys over three decades

Ten days ago Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders announced there was enough evidence to charge Janner with 22 offences against nine alleged victims – but he could not be prosecuted because he has severe dementia.

The CPS claimed Janner was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2009. But analysis of his activities since then shows he went on at least 20 foreign trips, including to Israel and America as part of his work fighting anti-semitism and bringing Nazis to justice. He was still chairman of an all-party Parliamentary group two years ago.

Last night Leicestershire Police declined to comment on Mr Ashby's revelations, but confirmed it is now looking again into the earlier cases.

Janner's family have issued a statement insisting he was 'entirely innocent of any wrongdoing'. Of course they did. What else would you expect them to say, "Oh, yes, he's an old bugger"?

The head of Britain's top children's charity last night condemned the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for her bungling of the Lord Janner child abuse scandal – putting her under greater pressure to quit.

Peter Wanless, the chief executive of the NSPCC, demanded that Alison Saunders explain her controversial decision to keep the sickening allegations against the Labour peer out of court. And he warned her poor handling of the case will deter victims coming forward in the futureand could heighten fears of an Establishment cover-up.

Mr Wanless's accusations, in a letter seen by The Mail on Sunday, will put the beleaguered DPP under greater pressure to step down or reconsider her decision to spare Lord Janner prosecution on the grounds that he has dementia.

In his letter, sent on Thursday, NSPCC chief and key Government adviser Mr Wanless told the DPP he was not challenging the medical evidence that Lord Janner has Alzheimer's so is unfit to stand trial.

Peter Wanless the chief executive of the NSPCC, demanded that Alison Saunders
explain her controversial decision to keep the sickening allegations
against the Labour peer out of court
But he demanded answers as to why law chief Mrs Saunders did not choose a well-established procedure often used when suspects lack mental capacity, known as a 'trial of facts', in which jurors hear evidence but do not find guilt and no punishment is imposed by the judge. 

Mr Wanless said justice should have been done – as the CPS admitted last week it should have charged him after three earlier investigations by Leicestershire Police.

He wrote: 'Given the exceptional historical mistakes in this matter, I would like to understand why you did not deem it in the public interest to have a trial of facts, given this legal mechanism exists to enable the alleged victims to present their evidence in court and have a decision made as to whether Lord Janner carried out the alleged acts.

'The decision by the CPS enables the disparity in the public arena between the position of the alleged victims and those of Lord Janner's family to exist in perpetuity.'

He went on: 'With victims of child sexual abuse, it is the very fact of being able to give evidence in court and have a decision made on the allegations which is so crucial.

'The courage required to come forward when you are or have been a victim of child sexual abuse should not be underestimated.

'We are concerned as to the unintentional consequences the situation could have on encouraging other victims of child sexual abuse to come forward, particularly if the accused sits in a position of influence or power.'

Is it possible that deterring victims from coming forward was part of the intent?

Mr Wanless's letter will carry weight as he is a former senior civil servant who last year was called upon by the Home Office to search its archives for the notorious 'Dickens dossier' on alleged VIP paedophiles.

Mrs Saunders, however, believes it would be wrong to hold a trial of facts, because they are usually used when the suspect poses a danger to the public and a judge needs to impose an order to ensure they receive hospital treatment.

Sounds like it qualifies to me. However, as I pointed out a few days ago, there has been a precedent of holding a trial for a man with advanced dementia. Lord Janner could be tried in absentia!

She told the BBC last week: 'The medical evidence was very clear in this case that there was no ongoing risk.' Oh, right, yeah. What medical evidence?

Mr Wanless still believes that Lord Janner's accusers need to be satisfied that justice has been done.
Mrs Saunders suffered another knock last night after a Survation/MoS poll said calls for her to resign are supported by 44 per of the public with 27 in favour of her staying on.
