CHILD PROTECTION EXPERTS AND ABUSE SURVIVORS ARE DEMANDING AN INQUIRY INTO WHY ONE OF BRITAIN’S MOST NOTORIOUS PAEDOPHILES WAS PUT IN CHARGE OF AN INVESTIGATION INTO A CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN AT A GLASGOW BOYS’ HOME. THE SUNDAY HERALD HAS LEARNED THAT PETER RIGHTON – ONE OF BRITAIN’S LEADING CARE WORKERS, AND A MAN WHO LIVED A DOUBLE LIFE AS A PAEDOPHILE – HEADED AN INVESTIGATION INTO ALLEGATIONS OF CRUELTY AT THE LARCHGROVE ASSESSMENT CENTRE FOR BOYS IN GLASGOW IN THE 1970S.

THE INQUIRY RESULTED IN NO CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS BEING TAKEN, DESPITE 13 OUT OF 30 ALLEGATIONS OF VIOLENCE AND NEGLECT BEING PROVED.

ANOTHER WHISTLEBLOWER SPEAKS: ESTABLISHMENT PAEDOPHILES

March 18, 2017  via https://scepticpeg.wordpress.com

“…if you’re not open and honest about what you are doing with your investigations and your inquiries, people will start to think that bad things are happening.”

Terry Shutt, a former detective constable, spoke to Tom Bateman on BBC Radio 4 in 2014 about his time investigating a paedophile network in the early 1990s and the shocking cover up to protect a member of the establishment as well as senior clergy.

Mr Shutt is yet another former police officer who has put his head above the parapet to make allegations of senior figures being identified during police investigations in to child abuse, but who claim those implicated were either never arrested or the police were ordered to shut down the case, as in the case of Clive Driscoll in Lambeth whose request to speak with MP Paul Boateng about what he knew about prolific paedophile, John Carroll, led to him being removed, and an ex Detective who gave a shocking interview to Brian Gerrish at UK Column

The case in question seems to be Operation Clarence, which I wrote a blog post about in September 2016.  READ IN FULL https://scepticpeg.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/another-whistleblower-speaks-establishment-paedophiles/

THE FOLLOWING IS A SMALL SECTION OF THE BRILLIANT BLOG BY IAN PACE..

LARCHGROVE ASSESSMENT CENTRE FOR BOYS, GLASGOW. THAT EVEN PETER RIGHTON FOUND TO BE CRUEL!

AS A RESULT OF THE EXCELLENT REPORTING OF TOM BATEMAN FOR THE BBC RADIO 4 TODAY PROGRAMME, WHICH WAS FOLLOWED UP BY REPORTS IN THE INDEPENDENT, TELEGRAPH, MAIL AND METRO, MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE BECOMING AWARE OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE SINISTER FIGURE OF PETER RIGHTON, WHOSE NAME APPEARS IN MANY CONTEXTS FROM CHILDREN’S HOMES TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AND MAY HAVE BEEN A SERIAL ABUSER ON THE SCALE OF JIMMY SAVILE, AS WELL AS LINKED TO MULTIPLE NETWORKS OF OTHER ABUSERS. AN INVESTIGATION INTO RIGHTON’S ACTIVITIES, AND HOW HE WAS ABLE TO MOVE EFFORTLESSLY IN TOP CIRCLES OF SOCIAL WORKERS AND CHILD PROTECTION EXPERTS, WHILST HARDLY MAKING A SECRET OF HIS PROCLIVITIES AND ACTIVITIES, NEEDS TO BE A CENTRAL PART OF THE FORTHCOMING INQUIRY.

THE BBC REPORT HAS NOW LINKED RIGHTON TO A HOME OFFICE REPORT WHICH HE ADVISED IN 1970 (RIGHTON WOULD LATER ADVISE THE BARCLAY REPORT IN 1980 AND GIVE EVIDENCE TO THE PINDOWN INQUIRY IN 1991), AS WELL AS TO ABUSE IN CHILDREN’S HOMES IN ROCHDALE AND NORTH WALES. RIGHTON HAS ALREADY BEEN LINKED TO MANY OTHER SCANDALS, AND ALSO APPEARS TO HAVE PLAYED A PART IN INFLUENCING CHILD CARE POLICY IN SUCH A MANNER AS TO FACILITATE THE ACTIVITIES OF HIMSELF AND OTHER ABUSERS, MAKING CHILDREN IN HOMES MORE VULNERABLE TO ABUSE.

BELOW ARE REPORTS FROM THE GUARDIAN AND THE TIMES FROM MARCH 8TH, 1973, CONCERNING THE LARCHGROVE ASSESSMENT CENTRE IN GLASGOW, FROM WHICH STAFF WERE THEN SUSPENDED FOLLOWING ALLEGATIONS OF CRUELTY. WHAT IS MOST STRIKING HERE IS THE FACT THAT RIGHTON HIMSELF, TOGETHER WITH RONALD BENNETT QC, ACTUALLY CONDUCTED THE INDEPENDENT INQUIRY.

PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT HIS BLOG. IT IS INCREDIBLE!  I AM WELL OUTCLASSED!

EXTRACT FROM  PIE: THE CALL FOR LAWYERS, SOCIAL WORKERS AND MEDICS

IN MARCH 1973, PETER RIGHTON, (WHO WITHIN 2 YEARS WOULD BECOME PIE MEMBER NO 51), THEN A ‘SENIOR OFFICIAL WITH THE NATIONAL CHILDREN’S BUREAU’ ASSISTED RONALD BENNETT QC, SHERIFF OF BERWICKSHIRE IN CONDUCTING AN INQUIRY INTO 30 ALLEGATIONS BY BOYS AT LARCHGROVE.

RIGHTON AND BENNETT SPENT 18 DAYS INTERVIEWING 53 PEOPLE BEFORE SENDING THE FINAL REPORT TO GLASGOW CORPORATION SOCIAL WORK & HEALTH COMMITTEE FOR ACTION. ONLY 13 ALLEGATIONS OF VIOLENCE AND NEGLECT WERE FOUND PROVEN ‘ON THE BALANCE OF PROBABILITIES’; 17 ALLEGATIONS WERE FOUND NOT TO BE CORROBORATED. INITIALLY SEVEN MEMBERS OF LARCHGROVE’S STAFF WERE CHARGED WITH ASSAULTING BOYS. NO MENTION IN THE PRESS WAS MADE OF ANY SEXUAL ABUSE ALLEGATIONS. IN FACT, AS THE GLASGOW HERALD REPORTED ON 7 MARCH 1973 THE CROWN AGENT, STANLEY BOWEN, HAD INSTRUCTED THAT NO PUBLICITY SHOULD BE GIVEN BY NEWSPAPERS TO THE SECTION DEALING WITH SPECIFIC ALLEGATIONS OF ILL-TREATMENT UNTIL CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS HAD BEEN COMPLETED. A FORTNIGHT AFTER WHICH, ACTING ON THE AUTHORITY OF HEATH’S LORD ADVOCATE AND MP FOR EDINBURGH PENTLANDS, NORMAN WYLIE QC, STANLEY BOWEN SAID THE REQUIRED STANDARD OF EVIDENCE ‘BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT’ HAD NOT BEEN REACHED IN ORDER TO COMMENCE CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS. WITH CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS HALTED, NO FURTHER REPORTS OF THE SPECIFIC ILL-TREATMENT WYLIE QC AND BOWEN HAD ASKED NEWSPAPERS TO WITHHOLD WERE PUBLISHED.

FILES CONTAINING BENNETT AND RIGHTON’S REPORT WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNREDACTED UNTIL 2060 BY THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES SCOTLAND AND REDACTED COPIES WERE ONLY RELEASED IN NOVEMBER 2008. IT’S AS YET UNKNOWN WHETHER THE SPECIFIC SECTION CONTAINING ALLEGATIONS WHICH THE CROWN IN SCOTLAND WAS SO KEEN TO KEEP NEWSPAPERS FROM REPORTING ON IS AVAILABLE IN A REDACTED FORM – OR WHETHER WILLIAM HENDERSON’S 1974 OFFENCES AGAINST CHILDREN COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED BY AN INQUIRY INTO CHILD ABUSE AT LARCHGROVE CONDUCTED BY SOMEONE WHO WASN’T SEXUALLY ABUSING BOYS HIMSELF.  https://www.byline.com/column/27/article/376

EXTRACT..  IN SCOTLAND, THERE HAVE BEEN ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE MADE BY FORMER PUPILS AT THE ROMAN CATHOLIC FORT AUGUSTUS SCHOOL ON THE BANKS OF LOCH NESS. OTHER CLAIMS HAVE BEEN MADE BY THOSE WHO USED TO ATTEND NAZARETH HOUSE IN ABERDEEN AND LARCHGROVE BOYS’ HOME IN GLASGOW. https://spidercatweb.blog/2016/03/29/37-famous-scots-among-child-abuse-suspects-where-are-the-arrests-sco/

the report found that 13 out of 30 allegations were proved and was highly critical of the corporation for allowing conditions inducive to violence to occur; later reports found that John Porteus, a houseparent, had sexually abused boys at Larchgrove in the late 1960s, and others testified to sexual abuse during this time. Righton and Bennett’s report did not deal with sexual abuse, and it was possible for a convicted abuser, Robert William Henderson, to gain a position towards the end of 1973, where he formed ‘an indecent association with a 13-year-old boy’. http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2507&dat=19741003&id=IZFAAAAAIBAJ&sjid=9aQMAAAAIBAJ&pg=5446,689534
Glasgow City Council are currently looking for any documentation connected with the case, whilst the council and Scottish government have called upon anyone who suffered abuse there to contact the police; it has been revealed that there are claims that staff of both genders were involved in the abuse of boys at the home (see ‘Notorious paedophile headed Scottish care home inquiry’, Sunday Herald, August 24th, 2014 http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/home-news/notorious-paedophile-headed-scottish-care-home-inquiry.25120541).
