New Allegations Of Child Abuse Emerge After Former British Home Secretary Leon Brittan’s Death  Dina Spector Jan. 26, 2015

Leon Brittan’s death last week has reignited claims that the former home secretary was involved in the cover-up of a secret Westminster paedophile ring that operated in the 1970s and 1980s.

Days after Brittan’s death, Labour MP Tom Watson said he spoke to several people who allege they were raped by the late politician. One male victim was a child when he was allegedly raped by Brittan.

“Many have urged me over the past two years to reveal allegations against Brittan using parliamentary privilege,” Watson told the Mirror. “This allows MPs to say things that are not subject to libel laws. Some will ask why I’ve waited until his death to speak out. The reason is simple. I didn’t want to prejudice any jury trial he might one day face.”

Brittan’s death also underlines how slowly and ineffectually the British police are moving in their investigation of the Westminster child-abuse ring. The prime suspects are literally dying. Former MP Cyril Smith — another accused child abuser — died in 2010. Peter Hayman, the former deputy director of MI6 who was convicted of gross indecency, died in 1992….

Brittan remains the subject of an investigation into the disappearance of a 40-page dossier naming eight senior civil servants and politicians who were allegedly involved in a secret paedophile ring.

In 1983, Brittan was handed a dossier written by conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens while serving as home secretary in Margaret Thatcher’s government. Dickens died in 1995. In July last year, Brittan was surrounded by allegations that he failed to properly investigate the claims. Brittan maintained that he handled the documents correctly.

Last year, he told the Daily Mail that he gave the names to the Director of Public Prosecutions…. http://www.businessinsider.com/leon-brittan-death-and-child-abuse-allegations-2015-1

Gary Glitter breaks down in tears over child abuse images  28 January 2015

Gary Glitter broke down in tears as he explained to jurors why he had been in possession of child abuse images.

Sobbing uncontrollably, the 70-year-old said he had been in a bad place in his life, and was struggling financially, with alcohol and with drugs.

He issued a tearful apology to his fans, saying: “I lost my own dignity, and I am so sorry. I am very sorry.”

Glitter, on trial under his real name Paul Gadd, denies 10 charges relating to three girls between 1975 and 1980.

In November 1997, when he went to pick up a Toshiba laptop he had handed to a PC World branch in Bristol, he was arrested, Southwark Crown Court in London heard.

The engineer who examined the machine had discovered images on it related to child abuse.

Mr Gadd subsequently admitted responsibility for a “large number” of images – depicting a full range of sexual activity taking place between men and very young children – being on his computer.

He was jailed for four months in 1999 for the collection of 4,000 images….

I did not try to rape her or any other child.”….

He is also charged with four counts of indecent assault on a fan in 1977 at hotels in Leicester and Birmingham when she was aged 12 and 13; plying the same girl with alcohol, and having unlawful sexual intercourse with her.

Two further charges allege he indecently assaulted a girl of 13 on a date between October 1979 and December 1980, in his dressing room at a venue in Watford where he was performing. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-31015347

OpDeathEaters : Anonymous calls for Global protest on 13th February By Vijay on January 27, 2015 OpDeathEaters – Anonymous announce a worldwide protest march on 13th February 2015 to bring the political apathy about paedophiles to world notice The hacktivist group which stands for anything remotely related to exploitation has taken the issue of ‘Paedosadists’ or child abusers seriously.  The seriousness stems from the fact that the prime accused of the elite invite only VIP Westminster paedophile ring have passed away.  The deaths of Leon Brittan, Cyril Smith and Jimmy Saville in the UK has allowed them to escape persecution, leaving their victims with no justice and they have escaped accountability to the world for their actions…. Anonymous hopes that the world wide protest march on 13th February 2015 will bring this fact to the world notice.  They also want to point of lack of political will and a lethargic work from the investigation agency which led to the paedosadists escaping accountability to their innocent victims. They hope that their march will end the political apathy to the paedophiles and their rings across the world by naming and shaming them…. http://www.techworm.net/2015/01/opdeatheaters-anonymous-calls-protest-13th-february.html

Lawyers for Billionaire Sex Offender Linked to Prince Andrew Scandal Ask Judge to Keep Documents Sealed Jan 27, 2015 By JAMES HILL ABC News Producer via Good Morning America Attorneys for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein claim in a new court filing that the billionaire financier will be “irreparably harmed” if emails and letters his lawyers sent to federal prosecutors during plea negotiations are made public, and they’re asking a judge to order that the correspondence remain sealed. Epstein’s legal brief, filed in U.S. District Court in Florida late Monday by attorneys Roy Black and Martin Weinberg, represents his first formal statements since explosive allegations emerged last month that he had forced a then-17-year-old girl to have sex with Britain’s Prince Andrew and other powerful men…. Epstein, an enigmatic financier who has palatial homes in Florida, New York, New Mexico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, was the subject of wide-ranging state and federal investigations, beginning in 2005, looking into claims that he had illegal sexual contact with dozens of minor girls at his Palm Beach mansion and elsewhere. By mid-2007, he was facing a potential federal indictment for alleged sex crimes involving nearly three-dozen teenage girls. If charged and convicted, he could have faced 10 years to life in prison. Instead, Epstein entered into the unusual and, at the time, confidential non-prosecution agreement with the federal government that resulted in him pleading guilty to two comparatively minor sex crimes in a Florida state court. He pleaded guilty to a count of solicitation of a prostitute and a count of solicitation of a prostitute who is a minor. He served 13 months in jail and must now register as a sex offender for the rest of his life — in any state where he owns a home…. http://abcnews.go.com/International/lawyers-billionaire-sex-offender-linked-prince-andrew-scandal/story?id=28524119

Prince Andrew got ‘daily massages’ at Jeffrey Epstein’s Florida home: repairman Jeffrey Epstein’s former handyman Juan Alessi said in a deposition that ‘Prince Andrew spent weeks with us’ in West Palm Beach and enjoyed massages every day. Underage-sex accuser Virginia Roberts has claimed massages at the mansion were ‘always sexual.’ Alessi’s testimony was revealed as another alleged victim, identified as a ‘well-known Hollywood actress,’ told RadarOnline the moneyman was a ‘monster’ who preyed on her when she was 13. BY Dareh Gregorian  NEW YORK DAILY NEWS   Tuesday, January 27, 2015 …. “Prince Andrew spent weeks with us,” Alessi testified. Asked if he got massages from Epstein’s “therapists” while he was there, Alessi answered, “I would say, daily massages.” One of Epstein’s “masseuses,” Virginia Roberts, has said in court papers that “massages” at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion were “always sexual.” “Epstein’s code word for sexual encounters was that it was a ‘massage,'” Roberts said in an affidavit filed in Florida federal court last week…. Alessi said he didn’t know what happened behind closed doors in Palm Beach, but one of the massage rooms was full of sex toys. While the feds have said that Epstein preyed on as many as 40 underaged girls, Alessi said he “didn’t see that many young girls, you know, young underage girls at the house,” except for two — Roberts and another woman identified only as N. “She was still in high school,” Alessi said…. Epstein’s lawyer has called the allegations against his client “rehashed” and “stale.” http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/prince-andrew-sex-massages-epstein-home-repairman-article-1.2094073

Child Abuse And Neglect Laws Aren’t Being Enforced, Report Finds January 27, 2015 Pam Fessler Laws intended to protect children from abuse and neglect are not being properly enforced, and the federal government is to blame. That’s according to a study by the Children’s Advocacy Institute at the University of San Diego School of Law, which says children are suffering as a result. The numbers are grim. Almost 680,000 children in the United States were the victims of abuse and neglect in 2013. More than 1,500 of them died. Federal officials say they’re encouraged that the numbers are lower than they were in 2012. But children’s advocates say abuse is so often not reported that it’s impossible to know if there’s really been a decline. “This is just something that’s chronically underreported,” says Elisa Weichel, a staff attorney with the Children’s Advocacy Institute, which published the report Tuesday…. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2015/01/27/381636056/child-abuse-and-neglect-laws-arent-being-enforced-report-finds
