Lord Janner lied to child abuse inquiry in 1992 documents reveal
Telegraph Reporters 4 April 2016
Lord Janner lied about evidence he gave to a child abuse inquiry – with the inquiry chairman’s permisson, newly-released documents reveal.
The peer gave evidence in private to the 1992 Kirkwood Inquiry into child abuse in Leicestershire care homes in the wake of the conviction of paedophile Frank Beck.
Documents obtained by the BBC show the inquiry looked into claims Lord Janner sexually abused a boy from a care home whom he had “befriended” in the 1970s.
The boy, as an adult in his 30s, reported the allegations to the police in 1991. They were then made public by Beck at his trial that year.
The 1992 documents show that after his questioning – on June 19, 1992 – Lord Janner asked the inquiry’s chairman Andrew Kirkwood QC if he could tell the media waiting outside that he had not been asked about allegations of child abuse against him.
Mr Kirkwood replied: “Of course, Mr Janner.”
The documents show this was not true, and the revelation that the real substance of the inquiry’s questioning was withheld from the media will further fuel allegations of a cover-up.
Lord Janner was not prosecuted at the time and he rubbished the child abuse claims in the House of Commons.
He also refused to answer police questions.
The Kirkwood files will be crucial evidence for the national child abuse inquiry, chaired by Justice Lowell Goddard, which will examine the Janner case, including whether the inquiry wrongly left out allegations against Lord Janner in its final report. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/04/04/lord-janner-lied-to-abuse-inquiry/

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse today began a hearing about the experiences of men and women who were abused as children in sporting clubs.
The Sydney-based hearing is focusing on allegations of child sexual abuse involving a soccer coach, a cricket coach and a tennis coach, and how the relevant governing bodies responded to reports of the abuse at the time….
The principal then reported the abuse and BXK was later charged with three counts of sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 10. He pleaded not guilty and was later acquitted of all three charges.
He was later convicted of the abuse of several other children in 2002 and sentenced to five years in jail with a non-parole period of two and half years…. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-04-04/inquiry-hears-of-woman-sexually-abused-by-soccer-coach-as-8yo/7296174
Predatory paedophile walks from court despite sixth child abuse offence
A PREDATORY paedophile who was being sentenced for child abuse for the sixth time has walked free from court.
Rapist Sidney Hare, 88, repeatedly abused numerous youngsters during a quarter of a century, offering them cash and sweets or inviting them to see his tortoise.
And when he got seven years in 2006 a judge told him his age and ill heath, he was said to have late stage bowel cancer, were the only things stopping him getting life.
Now, almost ten years later, Hare has admitted molesting another youngster in 1981 during the latest depraved attack to come to light.
Colin Meeke, prosecuting, told Swindon Crown Court the dad of the 10-year-old victim, now a woman in her 40s, had worked with Hare in a factory.
Around Easter time in 1981, he said the girl and her sister were walking past the defendant’s house on Thorne Road, Eldene, when they saw him at the door.
He said that he offered them some money and sweets and after giving some to her sister he said he had nothing else in his pockets.
After inviting them into his house he took the little girl upstairs to go through the pockets of other clothes while her younger sister waited downstairs.
The pervert them pushed her on to the bed and climbed on top of her, simulating intercourse, as he pawed at her over her clothing before she fought him off.
Mr Meeke said: “She didn’t tell anyone about it, as people didn’t in those days.
“It wasn’t for some years, until she saw him at a birthday party about 20 years ago, that she first told anybody about it. Then, more recently, she has reported the matter to the police.”
When he was questioned by the police he was frank about what had happened and said he recalled the girl’s name and that she came to his house.
Hare, now of Ashmead Court, Trowbridge, pleaded guilty to one count of indecent assault.
He was jailed for seven years in 2006 after admitting raping and abusing two sisters starting when they were about four between, January 1974 and the end of 1983.
That hearing was told he had advanced cancer of the bowel, asbestosis and a heart pacemaker which had to be refitted every six months.
His first conviction was in 1973 when he received a suspended sentence for two indecent assaults on young girls aged eight and nine years old.
In August 1981 he was put on a two-year probation order for indecently assaulting a nine-year-old girl.
Two years later he received another suspended sentence for abusing the sister of the young girls he raped.
And in 2004 he was jailed for 12 months for indecent assaults on an eight-year-old girl dating from 1995 and 1996….
Passing sentence Judge Peter Blair QC said: “I have to punish you for something you did 35 years ago.
“In reality if it had been reported back then I expect you would have had probation as the sentence.”
He imposed an 18-month community rehabilitation order and told him to register as a sex offender for five years, though he has to register for life under his last sentence. http://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/14401978.Predatory_paedophile_walks_from_court_despite_sixth_child_abuse_offence/

Lord Janner ‘abused 12 at children’s home’ as child sex case is DROPPED
LORD JANNER allegedly abused 12 former residents of a children’s home, as the former Labour MP’s historic child sex abuse case was DROPPED in light of his death.
By Rebecca Perring Fri, Jan 15, 2016
Legal proceedings were left in limbo last month following the announcement that the elderly peer had died.
But it has since emerged that the peer regualrly visited Leicestershire children’s homes between 1970 and the mid to late 1980s.
An ex-police officer claims he reported suspicions about Lord Janner, a decade before police began a full inquiry….
The former Labour peer had been accused of 22 counts of sex offences against boys dating back to the 1960s – allegations his family vigorously denied, insisting he was “entirely innocent”.
A jury was to decide – without resolving whether he was guilty or sentencing – if the incidents involving nine alleged victims had taken place. But Greville Janner died in December following a long illness, aged 87.
He had already been declared unfit to stand trial due to his “deteriorating and irreversible” dementia.
In a statement by the Crown Prosecution Service, seen by Express.co.uk, the investigation into the trial of Frank Beck, a care home manager who was eventually convicted of child abuse, is also explored….
The CPS say they have information about 22 alleged victims.
These include four indecent assaults on a male under 16 between 1969 and 1988, two indecent assaults between 1984 and 1988, four counts of buggery of a male under 16 between 1972 and 1987 and two counts of buggery between 1977 and 1988.
Earlier this year, there was outrage when Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders decided it was not in the public interest to put Janner on trial because he was so ill.
She later reversed her decision following a review of the case by David Perry, QC, who said there should be a trial of facts….
Cambridge-educated Greville Janner was MP for Leicester North West from 1970 to 1974 and for Leicester West until 1997.
The father-of-three then left the Commons to take a seat in the House of Lords as Baron Janner of Braunstone….
Janner: Three chances missed to put MP on trial for child abuse
By Ciaranfagan January 19, 2016
Three chances to put Greville Janner on trial for child abuse were blown because of mistakes by the police or prosecutors, according to a senior legal figure today.
Retired High Court judge Sir Richard Henriques said the former Leicester MP, who died aged 86 last month, should have been charged with offences against boys in 1991, 2002 and 2007.
The cases did not proceed because of the “inadequacy” of police investigations or decisions by senior prosecutors.
The peer’s family has always insisted he was innocent of any crime….
Sir Richard’s review of the authorities’ handling of the Janner case was commissioned by the Crown Prosecution Service last year.
He found the decision not to charge Lord Janner in 1991 with a series of offences against a 14-year-old boy was wrong. Sir Richard said police investigation was “inadequate” and the CPS should have pressed for further inquiries instead of closing the case.
In 2002, Leicestershire Police did not tell the CPS about a second alleged victim’s claims, he revealed….
The death of the veteran Labour politician – who was accused of 22 sexual offences against boys between 1963 and 1988 – ended the prospect of his alleged victims’ evidence ever being tested in a criminal court.
All case files have been handed to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, (IICSA),
It will sit for the first time in March to begin its investigation into the late peer….
Leaked email may derail criminal case against Bill Cosby
By Ray Kelly January 18, 2016
A former district attorney says he agreed more than a decade ago that his office would not use a civil deposition given by Bill Cosby in any criminal matters, according to an email obtained by CNN.
The email written by former Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Bruce Castor details a verbal agreement Castor had with Cosby’s attorneys about his 2005 sexual assault case.
“I can see no possibility that Cosby’s deposition could be used in a state criminal case, because I would have to testify as to what happened, and the deposition would be subject to suppression,” Castor said in the email written three months before criminal charges were brought against Cosby.
In Cosby’s deposition, Cosby detailed his romantic interest in the alleged victim; his pursuit of other young women during his long marriage; and his use of quaaludes in the 1970s as a seduction tool.
His lawyers have asked for the aggravated sexual assault charges to be dismissed, contending that they “violate an express agreement” with the district attorney at the time which they say constitutes an immunity deal….
Woman tells how she was sold into sex slavery aged 14 and raped 110 times in a DAY
A BRITISH woman has told how she was sold as a teen sex slave by her evil Albanian boyfriend and raped hundreds of times for cash. By Kieran Corcoran Tue, Jan 19, 2016
The woman was just 14 when her holiday flame turned vicious, beat her and sold her on to be pimped out.
She told how at her lowest ebb she was raped by 110 men in a single day, who paid €20 to spend five minutes with her.
The woman, who used the false name Megan to speak about her experiences, spent six years captive in Greece before making her escape.
Speaking to MailOnline, Megan told how she fell for Jak, a charming Albanian whom she fell for on a dream holiday to Greece.
Incredibly, after the break was over she was allowed to stay in the country with him by her permissive mother.
But after her parent, whom she said struggled with alcoholism, was off the scene, her new love turned.
The man, whom she called Jak, sold her to a Greek pimp, who took her far away and made her have sex for as many as 22 hours per day.
She was forced to hand half the money she made over to the pimp and wire the rest back to Jak every week….
