Late BBC Host Jimmy Savile Abused ‘Up to 1,000 People’ (Report) 1/20/2014 by Georg Szalai

A report about the results of an internal probe at the U.K. public broadcaster is expected to be published in February.

LONDON — The final report on an internal BBC probe is expected to state that late radio and TV host Jimmy Savile sexually abused “many hundreds and potentially up to 1,000 people” while working for the U.K. public broadcaster, the Guardian’s sister publication The Observer reported.

At least 138 victims are believed to be pursuing civil actions against the BBC, according to the newspaper report. Last year, a police report cited 214 abuse cases and about 450 overall complaints recorded by authorities.

The BBC report is also set to call on the broadcaster’s leadership to reform a “culture of secrecy,” according to the paper….

Report: Television Star Jimmy Savile Sexually Abused Victims in BBC Studios
by Warner Todd Huston 19 Jan 2014

Just when the UK may have thought that there could not be any worse news about the sex abuse scandal perpetrated by its once most famous TV and radio star, the Jimmy Savile case gets worse—not just for the late celebrity’s reputation but for those accused of enabling him, including the CEO of the New York Times.

A new report is about to come out saying that Savile abused teens right on the premises of government-run broadcasting facilities.

Jimmy Savile, an actor, TV and radio announcer—or “presenter” as they call it in Britain—and well-loved charity spokesman, passed away in 2011, but only months later, rumors of his rampant abuse of British teens who were enamored of his stardom began to leak out.

In 2012, allegations of his sexual abuse of vulnerable young Brits gained critical mass, and a full-scale government investigation was launched—as the British Broadcasting Service (BBC) is owned and run by the government. This gave Savile’s crimes an air of government approval when it became known that many BBC officials may have known of Savile’s crimes but covered them up, assisted in them, or at the least ignored them.

By June of 2013, not only had hundreds of cases of abuse come to light but the investigation had spread to other BBC employees.

In mid-2013, the BBC released a statement saying that it was “appalled” by all the sexual crimes perpetrated by Savile and his cohorts….

A source close to Dame Janet’s investigation told the British media: “The numbers are shocking. Many hundreds and potentially up to 1,000 people were victims of Savile when he was representing the corporation. The report will overshadow Pollard. It will go right to the heart of how Savile was able to get away with the most heinous of crimes under the very noses of BBC staff for more than 40 years.”….

Culture of secrecy blamed for BBC’s failure to stop Jimmy Savile’s crimes
Chris Patten pressed to prove corporation has changed as inquiry expected to conclude that DJ abused up to 1,000 people
Jason Deans The Guardian, Sunday 19 January 2014

Senior BBC figures are facing calls to reform the corporation’s “culture of secrecy”, as an internal inquiry is expected to reveal Jimmy Savile sexually abused up to 1,000 children while working for the corporation.

The BBC Trust chairman Chris Patten and director general Tony Hall will come under renewed pressure to show that the corporation has decisively changed a culture that allowed Savile to abuse his victims unchecked during more than 40 years as a presenter of TV shows including Top of the Pops and as a Radio 1 DJ. Savile died in 2011.

Former court of appeal judge Dame Janet Smith’s report will say the number of victims of Savile’s sexual activities may never be known but that his behaviour had been recognised by BBC executives who took no action, according to the Observer. At least 138 victims are pursuing civil actions against the BBC.

The paper quoted a source close to the Smith inquiry, expected to report next month, saying that “many hundreds and potentially up to 1,000 people” were victims of Savile while he was working for the BBC from the 1960s until his retirement in 2006….

Britain disrupts Philippines online child abuse ring
Kim Hjelmgaard, USA TODAY January 16, 2014
LONDON — Britain’s National Crime Agency said it has broken up an international crime group that live-streamed child sexual abuse from the Philippines.

The agency said the joint investigation with authorities in the United States and Australia yielded 29 arrests for people in 12 countries who had paid to watch the online abuse, which in some cases was arranged by members of the children’s own families.

In a statement, the NCA said that the “use of Web cams to stream live abuse, particularly from the developing world, is a significant and emerging threat.”

The investigation was started after a routine visit by police in the English county of Northamptonshire to a registered sex offender, the NCA said. The probe began in 2012 and resulted in 15 children ages 6 to 15 being safeguarded from abuse….

Jimmy Savile case: when will we start listening to children who are abused?
The heartbreaking testimonies in a new documentary highlight the culture of denial and disbelief around sexual abuse
Julie Bindel The Guardian, Monday 1 October 2012

Jimmy Savile, the television presenter and media personality, knighted for his charity work for sick and disabled children is to be exposed as a prolific sexual abuser of girls as young as 12 in a documentary this week. This news will not come as a shock to many, as the rumours about Savile have been in the public domain for decades. That’s the truly shocking part of this story – so many people either knew or suspected the fact that Savile was assaulting underage girls but chose to do nothing whatsoever about it.

A number of Savile’s former colleagues interviewed for the documentary admitted that his predatory behaviour towards young girls was an open secret at the BBC. Wilfred De’Ath, who worked with Savile in the 1960s, told of how he spoke to a girl he believed to be 12 years old while she was in bed with the presenter the morning after he had seen Savile with her at a restaurant, describing her as like a “little lost soul”. De’Ath admitted that it was “common gossip” that Savile was an abuser. Still, it appears that neither he nor any other colleagues reported him either to the BBC bosses or police….

The testimonies of the women that appear in the Savile documentary are heartbreaking. One spoke of how she was raped by Savile, but that she blamed herself because “no one blamed him.” Another was locked in an isolation unit for days at her approved school when she made allegations about Savile in the 1970s, because she was assumed to be lying, as are so many abused children both then and now. “No one believed me then and I don’t expect anyone to believe me now.” Unless we start listening to children, in decades to come we will be hearing the same tragic stories. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/oct/01/jimmy-savile-abused-children-documentary

Jimmy Savile alleged to have abused girls as young as 13
Documentary to air claims by several women that TV presenter assaulted them when they were children
Ben Quinn     The Guardian, Friday 28 September 2012

Jimmy Savile, the eccentric television star and Top of the Pops host who was knighted in 1990, was a sexual predator who abused girls as young 13, an investigative documentary to be broadcast next week will allege.

Up to 10 women are said to have come forward to claim that they were sexually assaulted by Savile during the 1970s, when they were underage teens, and that their lives were “destroyed and devastated” as a result. The abuse, ranging from rape to indecency, is alleged to have taken place in public places, including schools, hospitals and the BBC studios where the entertainer hosted family-oriented shows including Jim’ll Fix It….

In a statement issued on Friday, the BBC said it had conducted extensive searches of its files to establish whether there was any record or allegation of misconduct by Savile during his time at the BBC but no such evidence had been found…. http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2012/sep/28/jimmy-savile-abused-girls-alleged

Another man alleges abuse by ex-Red Sox employee
AP  / October 2, 2012

BOSTON (AP) — Another man came forward Tuesday to accuse a now-dead Boston Red Sox clubhouse manager of sexually abusing him.

Former Kansas City Athletics and Royals clubhouse attendant Gerald Armstrong, 57, says Donald Fitzpatrick molested him in the late 1960s, beginning when Armstrong was 12, his attorney Mitchell Garabedian said.

The attorney said Fitzpatrick abused Armstrong more than 20 times combined when the Red Sox traveled to play in Kansas City in 1967 and 1969. The Associated Press doesn’t normally release the names of alleged abuse victims, but Armstrong has allowed his name to be published.

Garabedian is seeking $100 million from the Red Sox, $5 million for each of his 20 clients who claim Fitzpatrick abused them. Garabedian said he’s also investigating the abuse claims of another alleged victim of Fitzpatrick.

The Red Sox have previously settled a lawsuit by seven Florida men who claimed Fitzpatrick abused them….

Fitzpatrick worked for the Red Sox between 1964 and 1991, when he resigned after the first allegation. He died in 2005 at age 76, while serving a 10-year suspended sentence following a 2002 guilty plea to four counts of attempted sexual battery against boys younger than 12.
