Sir Peter Hayman, British diplomat, knighted MI6 operative and alleged pedophile

via Wikipedia:

In November 1937 he joined the Home Office as an Assistant Principal. In World War II he served in the Rifle Brigade from 1942 to 1945, rising to the rank of Major.[1]

Hayman was director general of the British Information Services in New York[4] (1961–64) and then deputy commandant of the British military government in West Berlin from 1964 to 1966. He returned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, becoming Deputy Under Secretary of State with responsibility for the United Nations and Eastern Europe from 1969 to 1970.[1] Then, from 1970 to 1974, he served as High Commissioner of the United Kingdom to Canada.

The Independent stated in his obituary that he started a commercial career in 1974, upon retirement at age 60.[3] However The Guardian reported in 2014 that he later served in the intelligence services, and was "long-time deputy director of MI6".[5] The Daily Telegraph characterized him as an "MI6 operative".[6]

In October 1978, Hayman left a package of paedophilia-related materials on a London bus. The police traced the package and discovered that under the pseudonym "Peter Henderson", Hayman had used an apartment in Bayswater, London, to conduct obscene correspondence. In the apartment, police found 45 diaries describing six years of "sexual fantasies" concerning children and activities with prostitutes, articles of female clothing and obscene literature. He was investigated by police but released without charge after being given a warning not to send obscene material through the mail.[7][8] In 1981, Private Eye magazine revealed this event. Then, using parliamentary privilege, MP Geoffrey Dickens asked why Hayman had not been prosecuted.[9][10] The Attorney General's reply indicated that while Hayman had been found to have received pornographic material through the post, it was not of an extreme nature, was non-commercial and in a sealed envelope, so did not warrant prosecution.[11]

In April 1981 Sir Michael Havers, the Attorney General, said in parliament that while Hayman was a member of the Paedophile Information Exchange, he was never a member of the executive committee, so was not prosecuted as others were for publishing contact advertisements.[12][13]

In 1984, Hayman was convicted for an act of gross indecency in a public lavatory.[1][9]

Later, on 29 November 1985, Dickens complained in the House of Commons that he had suffered harassment following his naming of Hayman. "The noose around my neck grew tighter after I named a former high-flying British diplomat on the Floor of the House. Honourable Members will understand that where big money is involved and as important names came into my possession so the threats began. First, I received threatening telephone calls followed by two burglaries at my London home. Then, more seriously, my name appeared on a multi-killer's hit list."[14] The Independent newspaper in February 2013 could find no corroboration for Dickens' claims in 1985.[14]

A teenage boy working at Buckingham Palace revealed he was groomed and sexually abused by a VIP paedophile ring there. The lad was also assaulted at the Royal Family’s Scottish retreat Balmoral, according to shocking Home Office files, reports the Sunday People. The boy who was 16 at the time, told how he was the victim of “exploitation of the highest order” – the claims could now be the subject of a police investigation.

The boy who was 16 at the time, told how he was the victim of “exploitation of the highest order” – the claims could now be the subject of a police investigation. In a heartbreaking note, the boy – then just 16 – told how he was the victim of “exploitation of the highest order”. The chilling claims could now be the subject of a police investigation into ­historic allegations of child sex abuse in the 1970s and 80s – linked to MPs and powerful figures. The disturbing account was passed directly to the then Home Secretary Leon Brittan but he ruled it was “not practical” to investigate. Campaigning Labour MP Tom Watson said: “I’m sure the Palace will want to co-operate with any inquiry.” A Palace spokesman said: “The Royal Household takes any allegation of this nature seriously and would act to ­address any specific allegations or investigate specific information.” The Sunday People and the investigations website Exaro have established that the Home Office file contains evidence of a letter written by the boy’s mother.

Former Surrey Comet news editor gagged over reporting of alleged paedophile ring

via The Guardian:

A former Surrey Comet news editor was gagged by the Government over the reporting of an alleged Westminster paedophile ring operating out of Elm Guest House in Barnes.

Hilton Tims, 82, the paper’s news editor between 1980 and 1988, revealed at the weekend he had been handed a D-notice preventing the reporting of sex allegations in 1984.

Elm Guest House, in Rocks Lane, is at the centre of the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Fernbridge, which is investigating claims of sexual abuse and grooming of children by Government ministers, MPs and senior police officers in the late 1970s and early 80s.

Mr Tims, the husband of Surrey Comet features editor June Sampson, told the Observer newspaper the Comet had been censored after receiving a tip-off about alleged sexual abuse at the guest house. Mr Tims told the Comet today: “I referred it to David Wilson, who was the editor at the time.

“All I know is that we were making some enquiries because we had a tip off and as soon as they got wind – there were too many top ministers involved so they shut us up.

“I was not even sure what a D-notice was in those days but we had to drop it altogether.

“If they slapped you with a D-notice – it came from the Government, you could not pursue that line of enquiry at all.” This month the Metropolitan Police said a new inquiry had began into the guest house after an alleged victim claimed he saw three boys murdered, including one allegedly strangled by a Conservative MP during a sex game.

North Kingston MP Zac Goldsmith said last week: “I have zero doubt that grotesque things happened at Elm Guest House and other parts of London at the hands of depraved and powerful people, and those things were systematically covered up.”

Mr Goldsmith has secured a debate in Parliament on Thursday, November 27, about the progress of the historic child sex abuse inquiry.

Security services are also facing questions about a possible cover-up after officical documents relating to gagging orders in the 1980s were said to be destroyed.

Vatican Paedophilia Scandal: Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski Stored Over 100,000 Child Porn Videos

via International Business Times:

A former Vatican archbishop accused of paedophilia stored tens of thousands of child porn videos and photos on a computer in his office at the Holy See diplomatic compound in the Dominican Republic, it has emerged.

Details of Jozef Wesolowski's massive child porn stash have been revealed after the 66-year-old was arrested at the Vatican earlier this week.,,The probe reportedly revealed a collection of horrors. The Polish native held more than 100,000 sexually-explicit files, Il Corriere della Sera newspaper reported...Some 160 videos showing teenage boys forced to perform sexual acts on themselves and on adults and more than 86,000 pornographic photos were meticulously archived in several category-based folders, the paper said.

Investigators said that at least another 45,000 pictures were deleted, while a second stash of material was found on a laptop Wesolowski used during his trips abroad...Investigators are also probing whether there was a network of people who helped him to set up sexual encounters and if he committed other abuse during his previous posts around the world.

Before arriving in Santo Domingo, Wesolowski served as apostolic nuncio in Bolivia and Central Asia - covering Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kirghizstan and Uzbekistan - after holding less prominent roles in Southern African, Costa Rica, Japan, Switzerland, India and Denmark.

He was recalled to Rome last year, after Dominican Republic media alleged he hired "rent boys" and was subsequently banished from the clergy, after a canonical court found him guilty of sex abuse.

Three mysterious deaths on properties of British Royal Family

via NBC:

A murder mystery with elements of an Agatha Christie whodunit is unfolding at the vast country estate where Queen Elizabeth II and her family gathered in rural splendor to celebrate Christmas and New Year's. British police said that a young woman's body was found in the forest at Sandringham and that they are treating it as a murder case. An autopsy was conducted Tuesday, but the precise cause of death was not disclosed, and investigators have yet to establish the woman's identity...Police said a forensic pathologist found that it was highly unlikely the death was of natural causes and that there was no evidence of accidental injury. Investigators hoped to use DNA to identify the woman.

The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, celebrated the holidays at Sandringham with their children and grandchildren. The royal couple were still at Sandringham on Tuesday, along with their youngest son, Prince Edward, and his wife, Sophie. The royal family owns vast tracts of land throughout Britain, and it is not unprecedented for serious crimes to be committed on property under their control. In 2010, the body of a 46-year-old woman was found on the crown estate near Windsor Castle. She had apparently been killed by hammer blows to her head. Her estranged husband was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 26 years in prison.

Last March, the body of an American with a royal obsession was found on an island in the park opposite Buckingham Palace. Authorities said Robert James Moore, who had sent rambling letters and strange packages to the queen, may have been dead for as much as three years. The cause of death was not determined. Now Sandringham, which has served as a private residence for British monarchs since 1862, has been touched as well. Sandringham has long been one of the queen's favorite residences, especially during the holidays... Buckingham Palace officials are staying mum about the murder case. Police are keeping many details confidential as they try to develop leads. "I cannot confirm whether she was clothed because, at the moment, only my staff, the person who found the body and the person or people who put it there know that, and I would like it to stay that way," Fry said.

Retired Scotland Yard detectives back up claims that paedo MPs murdered boys

via Yournewswire:

Former officers first investigated the allegations more than 30 years ago – and they have now provided testimony to Scotland Yard’s new probe. The two ex-officers have provided written statements to current investigating officers. Further testimony from the two ­officers also links Jimmy Savile to the Westminster paedophile ring. The Mirror reports: Paedophile politicians at Westminster murdered young boys at sex orgies, say two former Scotland Yard detectives, writes Mark Conrad and Keir Mudie in the Sunday People.

The Mirror reports: Paedophile politicians at Westminster murdered young boys at sex orgies, say two former Scotland Yard detectives, writes Mark Conrad and Keir Mudie in the Sunday People. The retired officers who first investigated the allegations more than 30 years ago have provided explosive testimony to the Yard’s new probe. The pair have made written statements to the Met Police about the VIP network which they claim was known as The Untouchables because they were too powerful to bring to justice. It is believed the ex-cops – one of them Special Branch – told the current inquiry that they were ­ordered NOT to investigate the group.

Their dramatic new evidence appears to corroborate claims by a victim known as Nick that he witnessed a young boy being ­murdered by an MP. The former Special Branch ­officer told police: “There was a significant paedophile group in Parliament who were untouchable to the police.” The two former policemen came forward at the same time to present their shocking new claims before the Met announced they had launched a ­homicide investigation. The statement from the Yard was a significant ­development in the scandal which threatens to expose murders and child abuse at the heart of Government.

Last week the Sunday People and the Exaro investigation ­website revealed that detectives from the Met Police’s paedophile unit had already received chilling testimony from a witness who says he saw an MP kill a boy in front of him. The evidence from the two ex-policemen seems to lend weight to Nick’s shocking testimony. Campaigning Labour MP Tom Watson, who has led calls for a full-scale inquiry, said yesterday: “These allegations show the ­investigation is gathering even more momentum. “These are serious allegations that cannot be ignored. It is not only witnesses who are coming forward – it’s police as well. “I would urge any other officers from the time to come forward to the Met and give their evidence.

“They may have been reticent in the past but now is the time to share their experiences. With their help, we may finally be able to uncover terrible injustices.” The two policemen have alleged to detectives from Operation Fairbank – set up to investigate historical child abuse – about the existence of the sinister group. They said their efforts to expose an evil network at the heart of the Establishment were thwarted. The two officers have also ­provided information about the identities of VIP members of the paedophile ring. Among their claims is new ­information about ­disgraced former MP Cyril Smith.

The new testimony backs up the Sunday People’s reports earlier this year that Smith, who died four years ago aged 82, was linked to a wider network. We revealed the Rochdale MP was a regular visitor to the infamous Elm Guest House in south-west London. Now the two former officers have told police that Smith was part of the gang of “Untouchables” they were not ­allowed to investigate. Further testimony from the two ­officers also links Jimmy Savile to the Westminster paedophile ring. The BBC star presenter was ­unmasked as a serial child-sex pervert after hundreds of victims came forward following his death at the age of 84 in 2011. But this is the first time testimony has surfaced linking Savile to Establishment paedophiles.

‘Westminster pedophile ring may have murdered my 8yo son’ – ex-magistrate

via RT:

The father of an eight-year-old boy who died in the 1980s has alleged that his son may have been abducted and murdered by members of a Westminster pedophile ring. He claims Scotland Yard were complicit in “covering up” the crime. Vishambar Mehrotra, a retired magistrate, said he recorded a male prostitute saying in a telephone call that Mehrotra’s son Vishal may have been abducted in the notorious Elm Guest House in southwest London in 1981. Mehrotra also said despite playing the recording for police officers, they refused to investigate allegations that high-profile judges and politicians were involved in the kidnapping of his son. Vishal Mehrotra was abducted as he walked home in Putney after watching the wedding procession of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in July 1981. According to newspaper reports at the time, Mehrotra’s home was less than a mile from the Elm Guest House, where witnesses said a “kings and queens” party was being hosted. According to Mehrotra, he received a phone call from the unidentified male prostitute months after the disappearance of his son. The prostitute said Vishal had been abducted by “highly placed” pedophiles operating from the guest house. Part of Vishal’s skeleton was found in 1982 in woodlands in West Sussex. According to coroners’ reports, there was no trace of his legs, spine or clothing.

Elm House was raided in June 1982 and dozens of men with high public profiles were questioned. Although none were implicated, it is believed the raids were connected to the disappearance of Vishal, as well as another boy, 15-year-old Martin Allen. “I was contacted by a young man who seemed to be in his 20s. He told me he believed Vishal may have been taken by pedophiles in the Elm Guest House near Barnes Common,” Mehrotra told the Telegraph. “He said there were very highly placed people there. He talked about judges and politicians who were abusing little boys.” “At that time I trusted the police. But when nothing happened, I became confused and concerned. Now it is clear to me that there has been a huge cover-up. There is no doubt in my mind.”

The statements come as the UK parliament prepares its own inquiry into allegations of historic child abuse that took place in the 1970s and 80s, involving a number of high-profile politicians, judges and media figures. According to whistleblowers, as many as 40 British MPs and peers could have been involved in instances of child abuse over that period. Earlier this month, a former schoolboy claimed that he was drugged and assaulted by a minister currently serving in parliament when he was 14. The man, who wished to remain anonymous, said the police had not acted on the claims because of the politician’s position in the government.

related, via RT:

The UK Home Office has admitted that it can’t find 114 “potentially relevant files” relating to the pedophile scandal engulfing Westminster, in which there are allegations that senior political figures were involved in, or covered up, child sex abuse. The lost files were part of a dossier compiled in the 1980s by the now deceased Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens and which was passed to the then-Home Secretary Leon Brittan, British media reports. Mr. Dickens, who died in 1995, told his family that he had details in the dossier that would “blow the lid off” the lives of powerful and famous child abusers. Lord Brittan has confirmed that he received a “substantial bundle of papers” from Dickens in 1983 when he was Home Secretary, and that he handed them all over to the relevant officials for further investigation.

A review by the Home Office found that information it received between 1979 and 1999 had been passed on to the relevant authorities. This fairly lengthy 20-year period would have included anything received from Lord Brittan in 1983.

Home Office under fire over ‘lost’ dossier on Westminster pedophiles

In a letter to Dickens at the time, Lord Brittan suggested his information would be passed to the police, but according to the Guardian Scotland Yard says it has no record of any investigation into the allegations. Mark Sedwill, the current permanent secretary to the Home Office, said that four new leads had been passed on to Scotland Yard and a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said that “any relevant material that is submitted to us will be dealt with as appropriate.” The Met did not confirm if it had received any material, however. But Sedwill also admitted that the Home Office had lost, destroyed or simply “not found” 114 potentially relevant files, the Telegraph reports.

UK pedophile official pleads guilty to child abuse

via Press TV:

Former treasurer of the Pedophile Information Exchange (PIE) has admitted to historical sex offences against young boys. Charles Napier pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court in London to 28 attacks on 21 victims under the age of 16 from 1967 to 1972 and a charge of encouraging a schoolboy to touch him. Napier, 67, the half brother of the Conservative MP John Whittingdale answered “guilty” while faced with his charges in the court. The former treasurer was remanded in custody until his sentencing scheduled for December 23. “It will enable those victims who wish to be here to be alerted and they can be here,” said the Judge presiding over the case, Nicholas Loraine-Smith.

Scotland Yard arrested Napier in June 2013, following claims in parliament about a pedophile ring with establishment connections. A letter was brought to light by an earlier police investigation in which Napier bragged of being able to send obscene pictures back to the UK in diplomatic bags, and of how easy it was to gain access to young boys in Cairo, where he was working for the British Council. UK police have opened an investigation into claims of a Westminster pedophile ring, saying they have a list of alleged child abusers, including over 10 current and former British politicians.

El Salvador’s Total Abortion Ban Is Driving Pregnant Teens To Commit Suicide

note: El Salvador has the highest rate of teen pregnancy in all of Latin America, no doubt due to the lack of availability of birth control combined with the lack of sex education. These are the real world results of Catholic doctrine, and the work of Catholic secret societies attempting to subvert democratic governance.

via Think Progress

In El Salvador, home to one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the world, teen pregnancy is a leading cause of suicide. That’s because desperate teens, many of whom have become pregnant through rape, don’t feel like they have any other options, according to health officials working in the country. The link between the culture of violence against women, the harsh abortion restrictions, and the suicide rate has become increasingly clear to groups working in El Salvador. Last year, sexual crimes in the country rose by 17 percent, and two thirds of reported rapes were committed against girls under the age of 18. Recent data shows that half of the teens who commit suicide are pregnant when they take their lives.

“There’s a correlation between sexual violence and the high rate of suicides among adolescents — that’s the reality. Pregnancy is a determining factor behind teenage suicides,” Mario Soriano, the head of the program for youth and adolescent development at El Salvador’s health ministry, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in an interview this week. According to Soriano, despite El Salvador’s high rates of teenage pregnancy, the girls who become pregnant are typically seen as outcasts in their conservative Catholic communities. They are often kicked out of the house, dumped by their boyfriends, and even expelled from school to avoid setting a “bad example” for other students. Rather than risk this type of rejection, many girls choose to resort to desperate measures.

Since abortion is illegal under any circumstances in El Salvador, even girls who have been victims of rape or incest are forced to seek out an illegal procedure if they want to end their pregnancies. According to estimates from El Salvador’s Ministry of Health, about 6,500 clandestine abortions take place every year, and about a quarter of those occur among girls under 18. Advocacy groups like Amnesty International say the real numbers are likely much higher.

Even aside from the risk of dying — something that results from about 11 percent of the illegal procedures in El Salvador — it’s very dangerous to end a pregnancy there. The women who are convicted of having an abortion can land in jail for decades. Even the women who have miscarriages, and weren’t intentionally trying to end their pregnancies, can be charged with aggravated homicide.

These dynamics haven’t escaped international scrutiny. Earlier this week, twelve countries — including Canada, the Czech Republic, Spain, and Sweden, among others — called on El Salvador to fulfill its obligations to the United Nations Human Rights Council by decriminalizing abortion.

“The chorus of countries worldwide calling for El Salvador to end its unjust abortion ban is growing ever larger and louder,” Nancy Northup, the president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said in a statement at the time. “The Salvadoran government cannot ignore the calls any longer, and must not be allowed to evade accountability for the human rights abuses that countless women continue to suffer.”

Amnesty International, which has been pressuring El Salvador to amend its abortion ban for months, frequently criticizes the country for killing its women and girls. The international organization says that the harsh abortion restrictions are akin to torture, particularly because even women in life-threatening situations aren’t always allowed to legally end their pregnancies. The United Nations has also warned El Salvador that its draconian abortion laws are a violation of human rights.

While the majority of countries around the world don’t have abortions bans as harsh as El Salvador’s, these dynamics are not necessarily specific to Salvadoran citizens. Globally, an estimated 47,000 women die from unsafe abortions every year. And even here in the United States, where abortion remains legal under Roe v. Wade, a mounting number of state-level barriers to the procedure puts it out of reach for some vulnerable women — particularly poor people and people of color. When those individuals are unable to exercise their abortion rights, there’s some evidence to suggest that being forced to carry unwanted pregnancies to term increases their risk of mental health issues and economic hardship.

Senior Lib Dem ‘ordered destruction of document on Cyril Smith abuse claims

via The Guardian:

A senior Liberal Democrat has been accused of ordering a personal assistant to destroy a document containing allegations of abuse and mismanagement against the late paedophile MP Cyril Smith. Liz Lynne, who is standing to become the party’s president, is alleged to have told her constituency aide to get rid of a document detailing a cover-up at the Knowl View children’s home in Rochdale, which closed in the mid-1990s. A manager at the home has also accused her of avoiding a meeting to discuss claims that Smith knew about the child abuse taking place at the home and had taken control of it...Deborah Doyle, who worked for Lynne between September 1995 and May 1997, said she took three or four pages of notes from a long telephone conversation with Digan in 1996. Digan had contacted Lynne’s office in Rochdale as claims of widespread abuse had begun to emerge at the Knowl View home, where boys as young as 10 had been raped. The first questions were also being raised publicly about Smith’s role in the school.

Doyles says Digan told her over the telephone that Smith knew of abuse at the school and gave details of a cover-up at the institution and the local authority. She says she told Lynne, who had been on holiday when Digan called, about the allegation, but that Lynne said she did not want to meet Digan. “I was surprised when Lynne said to me: ‘Don’t put the notes in the bin. Destroy them’,” Doyle said...Doyle said she came to work for Lynne in 1995 on the recommendation of Chris Davies, the former Liberal Democrat MP and MEP. Doyle had become involved in Lib Dem politics in the north-west, and had friends in the party. When she was first offered a job in Lynne’s office, she had to be personally approved by Smith in an interview, she said.

“It was like the 1950s. Everything had to go through Cyril, but he wasn’t even a councillor,” Doyle said.
There were tensions between Lynne and Smith, she said, but Lynne was careful not to anger him. “He would have very happily told someone to their face that he didn’t like them. That is the way he was,” she said. But Smith still wielded power, especially regarding fundraising, she added. “For the 1997 election, he just went off and got £40,000, just like that. I didn’t know where it came from,” she said. It was only when she saw a Dispatches documentary about Smith in 2013 that Doyle again considered her conversations with Digan and Lynne, she said.

She found her 1997 Filofax, and in her notes were Digan’s name and telephone number. She called Greater Manchester police’s helpline to tell them about her encounter with Digan and her subsequent conversation with Lynne. “I told them about it. I don’t know if they have followed it up,” she said. Doyle, 53, a book-keeper, says that she has nothing against Lynne, but has decided to speak out because victims have gone through much more and been brave enough to go on the record. “Liz is essentially a good person. I am sure that if she had been forced to look into these allegations, she would have been horrified … but at the end of the day she ia politician and may not have felt comfortable taking on Smith,” she said.

Digan, a social worker, was responsible for passing a dossier of evidence to the police which eventually saw the school closed in the 1990s. He said last week that he had approached Lynne’s office hoping to discuss suspicions at the way Smith and others had wished to take the school out of local authority control. He also had concerns that Smith had his own set of keys to the school and wanted to seek help for the boys who had been abused. A constituent of Lynne’s at the time, Digan said he called her office and had a long conversation with her personal assistant about Smith. “I had a good rapport with the PA. We spoke, she took down what I said. Then I heard nothing,” he said. He said he called Lynne’s office again some weeks later, on the off-chance of finding out if he could talk to someone else about the school. This time, Lynne answered the telephone. “I arranged to go and meet her in an office, but someone from her office cancelled it the day before it was due to take place,” he said. “She never got back to me. The shame is that many abuse victims could have been helped if Lynne and many others had taken the abuse at Knowl View seriously at that point.”

Victim of VIP abuse scandal 'saw Tory MP throttle 12-year-old to death'

via Daily Mail:

A victim of the VIP paedophile abuse scandal claims he saw a Conservative MP murder a young boy at one of their sick orgies. Detectives are investigating three murders linked to the child sex ring, it was reported last night, days after the Metropolitan Police revealed they had launched a probe into a killing connected to the historical abuse. A victim of the sickening sex parties says he was in the same room as a boy, aged 12, was strangled by a Tory MP. The boy, known as Nick, told the Sunday People: 'I watched while that happened. I am not sure how I got out of that. Whether I will ever know why I survived, I am not sure.' Now a grown man, he has also told detectives that he saw a 10 or 11-year-old deliberately run over by a car. As well as this, Nick claims he saw two unknown men murder a third boy in front of another MP 18 months later. Nick said that he and another abuse victim were taken in a chauffeur-driven car to a luxury townhouse in central London 'to be sexually abused by powerful men'.

Still traumatised by the harrowing events, he gave a graphic description to police of what took place inside the building. He said: 'The MP was particularly nasty, even among the group of people who sexually abused me and others. I still find it difficult to talk about these incidents after all these years.' Nick also told detectives about the death of another boy during a sexual assault in front of a Conservative minister - different to the one involved in the first killing. Nick says his father handed him over to the VIP abusers at Dolphin Square in Pimlico, near the Houses of Parliament, as well as other London locations. Dolphin Square was last week named as one of the locations where abuse was carried out by powerful individuals. He says he was raped over and over again by the minister, who also sexually assaulted other boys who were younger than 14 years old. His claims are being investigated by police under Operation Midland, part of Operation Fairbank - the large scale investigation into allegations of abuse by high-placed public figures. A statement from the Metropolitan Police said: 'Detectives from the child abuse investigation command are working closely with colleagues from homicide and major crime ­concerning this information.'

UK Police investigate muder allegations linked to child sex abuse inquiry

via Newsweek:

Police looking into accusations that powerful figures at the heart of the British establishment were involved in child sex abuse in the 1970s and 1980s said on Friday they were now investigating murder allegations. London detectives launched an inquiry two years ago into allegations about paedophile rings involving politicians, officials and other senior public figures. "Our inquiries into this, over subsequent weeks, have revealed further information regarding possible homicide," London's Metropolitan Police said in a statement...On Tuesday, a review into the disappearance of a dossier handed to the government 30 years ago which is believed to have implicated public figures in child abuse found there was no evidence it had been deliberately destroyed or kept from police

...However, Home Secretary Theresa May, who has ordered an over-arching inquiry into allegations of nationwide historical child abuse, said the review did not rule out the possibility that allegations had been deliberately hushed up to protect powerful figures. "There might have been a cover-up, and that is why we have set up the inquiry into child abuse. We are determined to get to the truth," she told parliament on Tuesday. Simon Danczuk, one of the parliamentarians who has been campaigning to find out the extent of child abuse, has told Reuters at least 10 current or former lawmakers might have been involved in child abuse.

"At the time, why weren’t there prosecutions? I think because of the power of the people that were committing the crimes - they were powerful figures," Danczuk said. "I think the intelligence services were involved. Then I think the front line police were warned off investigating some of these crimes."

Senior British Politicians involved in pedophilia cover-up

via Business Insider:

The British government has announced it will conduct a series of investigations into allegations that as many as 20 senior British figures — including politicians at cabinet level — were involved in, or turned a blind eye to, the sexual abuse of children, The Guardian reports. Home Secretary Theresa May told the House of Commons there would be two main areas of inquiry: Who, exactly, within the governments of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s may have abused young boys who had been taken into care by social services? And why were documents detailing those allegations lost by the Home Office back in the 1980s?

Britain is already reeling from a series of pedophilia cases that came out of the BBC in recent years, in which huge TV celebrities like the DJ Jimmy Savile and the children's entertainer Rolf Harris have been revealed as serial child abusers. Now, it's getting worse, according to Peter McKelvie, a child protection manager in the Hereford and Worcester area whose work has previously resulted in the conviction of pedophiles. He told the BBC:

Peter McKelvie, whose allegations led initially to a 2012 police inquiry, said a "powerful elite" of pedophiles carried out "the worst form" of abuse. "I would say we are looking at upwards of 20 (people) and a much larger number of people who have known about it and done nothing about it, who were in a position to do something about it," he said. Mr McKelvie said some of those who were alleged to have abused children had now died. He told the BBC he had spoken to victims over "many, many years" and that children - "almost exclusively boys" - were moved around like "lumps of meat". They had been subjected to the "worst form of abuse", including rape, he said.

It gets even worse than that. In the 1970s, the government appears to have funded with taxpayers' money a lobby group for child abusers, the "Pedophile Information Exchange" (PIE). The Telegraph reports:

In the 1970s the Voluntary Services Unit, part of the Home Office, gave £65,750 to the Albany Trust, an organisation which provides counselling and support to lesbian, gay and transgender people. According to the report, in December 1975 the Albany Trust invited members of PIE to a series of meetings about the need for a support group for paedophiles. The meeting also recommended the publication of an information pamphlet about pedophilia targeted at professionals, parents and the general public. The trust initially backed the pamphlet but withdrew its support after criticism by Mary Whitehouse, the [public morals] campaigner. The trust also arranged the translation of a Dutch government report calling for the age of consent to be lowered to 16. A further £410,000 was given to the Princedale Trust between 1974 and 1984 to support Release, an charity which provides advice on drug use and laws. The charity shared the same address as PIE.

And, yes, there is still worse to come. The Telegraph reports that a former Conservative MP told the BBC back in 1995 that the party would help cover-up for members of parliament who had been caught committing acts "involving small boys" in return for their political cooperation on legislation they might otherwise have challenged:

“It might be debt, it might be… a scandal involving small boys, or any kind of scandal in which, erm er, a member seemed likely to be mixed up in, they’d come and ask if we could help and if we could, we did."

A lot of very important people within the British ruling class are now going to be very, very afraid. Here's who McKelvie says he believes will be affected by the investigations, per the Times:

“We are looking at the Lords, we are looking at the Commons, we are looking at the judiciary, we are looking at all institutions where there will be a small percentage of paedophiles and a slightly larger percentage of people who have known about it but have felt that in terms of their own self-interest and self-preservation and for political party reasons it’s been safer for them to cover it up rather than deal with it."

UK charities warn about ritual abuse rings

via Press TV:

Two major charities in the UK have warned that children continue to fall victim to rape, murder and even the production of so-called snuff films. Campaigners have reported that babies are being born but never registered as pedophile rings kill them in secret. The investigation was conducted by Charity Izzy’s Promise and Charity Break The Silence. In Scotland, the two charities say, such terrifying cults have been left unchecked for years. They have found also that ritual abuse rings are still operating. Scottish police now say they are taking the claims “incredibly seriously”. Jon Bird from London-based National Association for People Abused in Childhood told press TV that “these crimes do definitely take place and it is not just in Scotland rather in many parts of the UK and other countries we’ve been hearing it about a decade.”

The charities which conducted the investigation have also warned that the abuse taking place is an “extreme, barbaric type of terror that can lead to serious personal disorder.” “Horrific things are happening and nobody is getting caught”, says Charity Izzy’s Promise Project Coordinator Joseph Lumbasi. “I suspect it is getting worse, because more people are becoming interested in these kinds of crime”, Bird added in his interview with Press TV. The story doesn’t end there, however, as the charities say “victims are so brainwashed that they don’t dare to speak out.” Some believe the government’s response has been at times too slow and that inquiries have to be immediately made into abuse cases. “The government now realizes that huge mistakes have been made in child protection generally”, Bird said in his interview with Press TV. “It’s slowly moving in the right direction, but the danger is enormous and we really do have to take it very seriously”, he concluded.

England: Land of Royals, Tea and Horrific Pedophilia Coverups

via Time Magazine:

From politicians’ fraudulent expenses to phone hacking, Britain has become surprisingly scandal-strewn in recent years, but the latest reputational cyclone to sweep across its shores is casting an especially dark light: pedophilia in high places. Newspapers and TV bulletins have been dominated for the past week by allegations that politicians with links to Margaret Thatcher’s government sexually abused vulnerable children in the 1980s and hid the truth for decades through their “chumocracy.” Suspicions of an establishment cover-up involving government departments, Scotland Yard and other elements of the establishment intensified in recent days when the law-and-order ministry, the Home Office, confirmed dozens of potentially-relevant files alleging sexual misconduct had gone missing from its archives

The allegations—which centre around the suggestion that politicians of all parties and other VIPs preyed on children at a guest house in the London suburb of Barnes—have been given greater credence because in the past two years a string of national figures have been exposed as predatory pedophiles. Most notoriously of all, Sir Jimmy Savile, a BBC children’s television presenter feted by the Royal Family and Downing Street, abused 450 victims, mostly boys and girls as young as eight over 50 years. While Savile had long been seen as odd, the scale of his offenses shocked the country, not least because he was allowed special access to hospitals and the authorities laughed at or ignored his victims, before he died a national hero. An ensuing police inquiry, Operation Yewtree – which has arrested 18 TV presenters, comedians, disc jockeys and other showbusiness associates – last month jailed fellow BBC children’s presenter Rolf Harris for indecent assaults dating back decades, on girls as young as 8.

Into this febrile atmosphere, Tom Watson, a Labour Party lawmaker, told the House of Commons in October 2012 that police should “investigate clear intelligence suggesting a powerful pedophile network linked to Parliament and Number 10.” a result of Watson and online news agency Exaro’s investigations, Scotland Yard launched Operation Fernbridge, an inquiry into the now-notorious Elm Guest House.

One confirmed visitor through its front door was Cyril Smith, a jovial 406-pound Liberal MP who was shown after his death to have been a serial abuser of boys at a local authority care home in his home town of Rochdale. Private Eye investigative magazine has suggested that Special Branch, the UK’s national security police, halted police inquiries into Smith in the 1970s to prevent the collapse of the Liberal-Labour coalition government. Attention then swept back to its successor government. In 1983, the far-right Conservative MP, Geoffrey Dickens, compiled a 40-page dossier alleging pedophilia among Westminster politicians and gave it to the Home Office and Attorney General’s Office. This year, the Home Office discovered that 114 files potentially relevant to historic allegations of sexual abuse, including the Dickens dossier, had gone missing.

A year ago Lord Brittan, the Home Secretary to whom Dickens handed his dossier, told reporters he could not recall anything about it. But last week following the intervention of another campaigning MP in Parliament, Lord Brittan issued a statement remembering that he had received the dossier and had asked his officials to study its contents. Over the weekend it emerged that Lord Brittan had been interviewed as a suspect in the rape of a 19-year-old in 1967; an allegation he dismissed as “wholly without foundation.”...On Monday, Home Secretary Theresa May announced an inquiry into the failures of the authorities to protect children...More high-profile prosecutions of pedophilia may shock the country; according to one whistleblower, allegations of sexual abuse have been made against 20 VIPs...In the case of the Westminster “pedophile ring,” the mounting sentiment that Britain’s establishment serves its own interests and conceals its wrongdoing may be well founded. Until recently only seven police officers were working on Operation Fernbridge; Scotland Yard announced today the figure is now 22.
