238 Arrested in Major Hollywood Pedophile Ring Bust

22nd June 2017

The Justice Department has arrested 238 in a major new operation The Department of Justice has just conducted a series of raids across Los Angeles and arrested 238 people in connection with a Hollywood pedophilia network.

According to police, the arrests included some “major Hollywood players” as well as politicians, white-collar professionals, a monk, and other high-ranking clergy members.

The raids were conducted by the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes against Children task force, working directly with the Justice Department.

Codenamed “Operation Broken Heart III”, the sweeping raids targeted offenders wanted for the sexual exploitation of children, child prostitution, sex tourism and possessing and distributing child pornography, said Deputy Chief Matt Blake of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police stated that they are unable to release any names at this point, but confirmed that the arrested included some “household names” in the entertainment industry.

Operation Broken Heart III is said to be part of a much larger operation that connects to national Elite pedophile rings and may extend worldwide.

Among those arrested was an Australian politician who was attempting to “purchase” a 6-year-old boy.

LA Times reports: Among those arrested during sweeps in April and May were entertainers, community leaders, white-collar professionals and clergy members, said John Reynolds, acting special agent in charge for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations

“The incidence of child sexual exploitation has reached staggering proportions,” he said at a news conference.

Law enforcement officials said the arrests underscore the importance of families maintaining an open dialogue about Internet safety.

“Parents and kids need to have frank conversations about how to stay safe in cyberspace,” Reynolds said. 

Children and teens, he said, are spending more time on the Internet and social media sites, where child predators often look for victims.

The Los Angeles task force is one of 61 programs nationwide funded through the U.S. Justice Departments Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Created in 2014, Operation Broken Heart gives law enforcement agencies and task forces an opportunity to combine resources and investigative tools to identify child sexual predators.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children unit serves about 300 warrants each year in pursuit of child pornography suspects.In a high-rise building in Long Beach, 11 officers review an average of 350 child pornography cases a month. 

Investigators use forensic equipment inside a mobile crime lab named “The Beast” to scan through hard drives for any illicit images.

In May, Michael Quinn, 33, traveled from Australia to Los Angeles to complete a deal to buy a 6-year-old boy for sex, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles.

Undercover agents met Quinn on a social media networking site, where he had communicated that he wanted to “meet up with a dad who shares his young one,” according to prosecutors.

“Quinn explained to the undercover agent he was hoping to meet ‘other pervs’ in the U.S. and ultimately agreed to pay a human trafficker $250 to provide him with a young boy with whom he could engage in illicit sex,” according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles.

Quinn went to a hotel in Los Angeles, where he planned to meet and party with three other child predators and engage in sex with boys, prosecutors said.

Instead, undercover agents were waiting inside the hotel room.

After Quinn handed money to an agent, who was posing as a sex trafficker, law enforcement authorities entered the room and arrested him, prosecutors said.

Weeks later in Riverside, authorities arrested Kounzong Saebphang, 26, a monk, at his home in the Wat Lao Buddhist Monastery in Riverside.

Authorities were investigating Saebphang since last year when they received information that he was possibly distributing child pornography, according to the Riverside County district attorney’s office.

When federal investigators searched the monastery, they found at least one digital device containing child pornography in his belongings, prosecutors said.Prosecutors alleged he also distributed child pornography to another person through a social media site.

Paedo Bishop Peter Ball

5pm 23rd June 2017


Disgraced former bishop and convicted paedophile Peter Ball tried to used his “status of confidant” with Prince Charles to boost his position, a damming report has revealed.

A major independent review found the Church of England “concealed” evidence of child abuse against Ball for more than 20 years.

He was jailed for 32 months in October 2015 after admitting to a string of historical sex offences against teenage boys and young men between the 1970s and the 1990s. 

The report, Abuse of Faith, found that Ball, then bishop of Gloucester, suggested “on many occasions” to the former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord George Carey and others that he “enjoys the status of confidant of the Prince of Wales”. 

He “sought to exploit his contact with members of the royal family in order to bolster his position, particularly in the eyes of Lord Carey and others from whom he hoped to receive sympathetic treatment,” the report says. 

The review into how the Church of England dealt with the case accused Lord Carey and other senior church figures of having “concealed” reports of Ball’s offences. It was revealed Lambeth Palace failed to pass on six letters of allegations of sex offences to the police. 

Criticising Lord Carey’s response, the report said he “set the tone for the Church’s response to Ball’s crimes and gave the steer which allowed Ball’s assertions that he was innocent to gain credence”.

The report found Ball made sure Lord Carey knew about his correspondence with Prince Charles and that he visited Highgrove House, the family residence of the Prince of Wales and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall in Gloucestershire. 

Upon his retirement Ball, alongside with his twin brother Michael, who was also a bishop, rented a house from the Duchy of Cornwall. 

But the review went on to say it “found no evidence that the Prince of Wales or any other member of the royal family sought to intervene at any point in order to protect or promote Ball”. 

Following the publication of the report, Lord Carey said he accepted the criticisms and apologised to Ball’s victims saying he “gave them too little credence”. 

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who described the report as “harrowing reading” and decried “inexcusable and shocking behaviour”, has asked Lord Carey to step down from his role as an honorary assistant bishop in Oxford following the report.

Rev Dr Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford, has confirmed Lord Carey has “voluntarily agreed to step back from public ministry”. 

The report notes Ball’s links with high profile and influential figures were feared by members of the public as the way the Church and other public authorities responded in the face of sex abuse allegations against the former bishop. 

Along with Lord Carey, Lord Donald Coggan, the former Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 1970s, a diocesan bishop, two MPs, two public school headmasters, one former headmaster, senior staff members from another public school and Lord Justice Lloyd were among the senior figures, who wrote supportive letters about Ball when he was under investigation in the early 1990s. 

Ball was placed under police caution in 1993. 

Yet, the report states there was “no doubt” Ball’s supporters were “unaware” of the evidence leading to the caution in 1993 or they were “convinced by his protestations of being hard done by”.

It also found there is “no firm evidence that the support of prominent public figures materially affected the way that Ball’s situation was handled by the Church”.

Senior figures in the Church of England “colluded” with a former bishop who abused young men, an independent review has found.

Peter Ball, who is now 85, was jailed for 32 months in October 2015 after admitting sex offences against 18 teenagers and young men & was released from jail in February after serving 16 months.

The review found Lord Carey received seven letters from families and individuals following the arrest and cautioning of Ball in 1992 for gross indecency – when he stood down as bishop of Gloucester – but failed to pass six of them to the police.

Ball was given funds authorised by Lord Carey to support him.

Lord Carey also wrote to Ball’s identical twin brother, Michael Ball – another bishop – in 1993 saying: “I believed him to be basically innocent”.

“BASICALLY innocent” So not entirely innocent then no?? Or Completely innocent? 

The current Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has asked Lord Carey to step down from his position as an honorary assistant bishop within the Diocese of Oxford.

In her report, “An Abuse of Faith”, Dame Moira said: “Ball’s priority was to protect and promote himself and he maligned the abused. The Church colluded with that rather than seeking to help those he had harmed, or assuring itself of the safety of others.”

In a statement, Lord Carey said the report made deeply uncomfortable reading.

“I accept the criticisms made of me. I apologise to the victims of Peter Ball. I believed Peter Ball’s protestations and gave too little credence to the vulnerable young men and boys behind these allegations,” he said.

“I hope… Dame Moira Gibb’s recommendations will make it less likely that a prolific abuser such as Peter Ball can flourish in the Church of England.”  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-40368573    https://archive.is/e8aCU

    Sick paedophile dad caught with child porn featuring kids as young as three caged for a year

    21st June 2017             HORROR DAD JAILED

    Christopher Thomas Kelly was caught with the stash at his home in Paisley including hundreds of pictures and eight videos

    A YOUNG dad who was caught downloading sickening child porn featuring kids as young as three has been jailed.

    Christopher Thomas Kelly was caught with the sordid stash at his home in Paisley, Renfrewshire.He downloaded hundreds of images and eight videos

    The 30-year-old was arrested and charged over the horrendous cache of abuse files.

    The material included a video of a three-year-old girl.

    At a previous Paisley Sheriff Court hearing he admitted breaking Section 52(1)(a) of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 by taking, or allowing indecent photographs of children to be taken, by downloading them, between February 16, 2014, and November 18, 2015.

    The charge he admitted was amended to change the date he committed the offence changed from being between September 1, 2012, and June 29 last year.

    When Kelly admitted his guilt, some of the images were described to the court by Procurator Fiscal Depute Keri Marshall. 

    In total, Kelly was found to have downloaded 1,733 indecent images – 1,725 pictures and eight films – 227 of which were rated by investigators as being in the most extreme category there is.

    Sheriff Colin Pettigrew called for background reports ahead of sentencing, and adjourned the case for that to be done.

    And, when Kelly returned to the dock today to learn his fate, he was caged for the offence.

    Sheriff Colin Pettigrew ruled there was no suitable sentence other than to jail Kelly for 12 months – and place him on the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years.

    Yet they believe in God?! #Smyllum #Lanark

    Presumably they have evidence that PROVES his existance… 


    Heart-rending allegations of decades of maltreatment at Lanark’s former Smyllum Orphanage featured in the very first sitting of what will be a marathon inquiry into historical child abuse in Scotland.

    Nearly four decades after the institution closed its doors, the now-ageing former occupants of the orphanage finally had their long-awaited day in court as the Scottish child abuse inquiry got under way in Edinburgh last week.


    But it is understood that there is anger among those who term themselves ‘survivors’ of Smyllum Orphanage at some of the evidence given at the hearing by members of the religious order that ran the institution, the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul.


    There were audible groans from the public benches at their claims that Smyllum’s punishment and medical records could not now be found despite a search of the order’s archives.


    The inquiry also heard that surviving nuns on the staff remembered the orphanage as “a happy place”.

    The leader of the order in Britain, Ellen Flynn, said that they “can find no evidence” of any abuse of children in their care in Lanark, only conceding that she was “appalled to think something had happened” and was “very sorry” if any of the many allegations were true.

    She also remarked that the now-elderly Smyllum nuns were “nervous” about the inquiry into alleged events there in the 1950s and 1960s, including a claim that one child died after a beating by a sister.

    Sister Flynn said that accusations of abuse had been made against “a deceased individual” and that her order had co-operated with all police investigations, adding that “our attitude is one of seeking the truth”.

    Some of the evidence heard at the opening hearing came from beyond the grave.

    It was in the form of the written testimony of Frank Docherty, who died aged 73 shortly before the inquiry he’d sought for decades finally got under way.

    A Smyllum orphan in the 1950s, he said his time there had left lifelong scars.

    He wrote: “The way we were treated took away our self-esteem and was emotionally damaging. Throughout my life, I have had to put up a front to people, so people have not seen the real me.

    “My childhood was taken away from me.”

    The initial six weeks of the inquiry, set up by the Scottish Government, will hear evidence from organisations accused of abuse.  http://www.carlukegazette.co.uk/news/nuns-could-find-no-evidence-of-abuse-at-smyllum-lanark-1-4482570


    The need for truth and apologies


    The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry is now underway to the point where Lady Smith, the Chair, is hearing witnesses on behalf of different organisations involved in residential child care in Scotland within living memory. Many organisations within Scotland have been asked to report to the Inquiry and to give details about their involvement in such care, the Church is among them.

    At the moment, the Inquiry seems to be examining the broad picture and learning about structures and how children came to be under the care of different establishments.

    The work of the Inquiry will be complex and lengthy and will inevitably involve difficult press coverage for the Catholic Community. For that reason, I hoped that the Catholic Media would be a great resource in explaining the evidence given to the Inquiry in a way which helped Catholics understand the truth. I found myself fundamentally disagreeing with the angle which last week’s SCO used in covering the story of my testimony to that Inquiry. This article is designed to help clarify the story.

    From the beginning, the Bishops of Scotland have been unanimous in their desire to assist and cooperate with the Inquiry and created a group which would prepare materials and respond on the bishops’ behalf. As a member of that group, I found myself standing in the Inquiry’s hearing room recently, raising my hand and swearing to tell the truth. Unfortunately, the SCO headline and story was presented last week, didn’t serve the complexity of the truth I tried to tell.

    The Church in Scotland has apologised for the fact that children in our care suffered abuse, an apology re-expressed in our opening statement, acknowledging “An overwhelming sense of shame that these abhorrent crimes have occurred in the context of the Church” a sense of shame, “felt by all Catholics, by our men and women in parishes, by our religious, by our priests and deacons and by our bishops.” To understand how we came to this state of shame is important; we need to be open to examining all the aspects of the story and not looking for a one-size-fits-all theory.

    In the context of discussing the way the Church handled accusations of abuse I was asked to reflect on a document issued by the Holy See in 1962 describing a process for dealing with such allegations. The responsibility to deal with this was the bishop’s and he was to do so by means of a Tribunal a “Church Court”. The world was changing and the Church was being asked to change too. The Church sought to engage with the modern world and to both learn from it and teach it. In the context of that opening out into the world, bishops began to use experts to advise on many matters they had handled on their own in the past. This advice included experts in psychology and therapy and they learned that many professionals believed that therapy could help and assist a person to reform and not reoffend. Since the bishops were not experts in psychology or therapy and the Church by her very nature sought to redeem and to save people, to turn them away from sin and back to God, this was welcomed. As Brother Brendan Geary noted in last week’s article, there was a mistaken belief, held very widely, that an abuser could be changed. It would take the world and the Church many years to discover how wrong that idea was. When faced with the choice of placing an abuser on trial before three Canonical (priest) Judges who had no formation in psychology or psychiatry or placing them into long term intensive therapy with experts guiding them to “change their ways”, the answer seemed obvious. It was equally obvious to the legal authorities, that on occasion that this was the appropriate response to a reported crime.

    Nowadays it is obvious that abusers do not change, they are incurable and cannot be trusted, sadly and tragically that was only learned over time. It was not only the Church that learned this, but society too, as an ever-increasing knowledge was developed of the psychology of abuse and abusers.

    If the Church made mistakes, as is willingly but sadly admitted, it did not make those mistakes out of malice or carelessness but rather in the hope of seeking to restore, repair, save. That is not meant as an excuse, but rather to cast a light on the truth and help us understand what happened. It does not make the pain and the suffering of an abused person any less real or any less inexcusable. It certainly does not mean as the headline claimed last week, that “Vatican II reforms contributed to child abuse mistakes.”

    What if the Church had continued to use Tribunals through the 60s, 70s and 80s, and sentence abusers to a penalty that did not include therapy? Could we say that children would have been any safer, that things would have been different? I don’t think we could. It was not the reforms of Vatican II that caused mistakes – it was bad people doing horrible, evil things to innocents, it was superiors trying, with the best possible advice available at the time, to reform and change them. That was a mistake we made and that is why we needed to apologise, to those who suffered.


    Child abuse cover up – call youself women? What the politicians don’t say – The Death of Democracy in Scotland



    Child abuse cover up – call youself women?

    June 14, 2017

     UK Privy Council Members collude to cover up state child abuse in Scotland

    When the Scottish Government stated it would set up an inquiry into state child abuse in December 2014  – Nicola Sturgeon then dragged it out – first taking 6 months to appoint a chair of the independent panel – whom 2 religious orders objected to – delaying it further until October 2015.

    The independent panel of three people were finally appointed to lead the inquiry,  Professor Michael Lamb, Susan O’Brien QC and Glenn Houston.

    Despite Scottish Goverment claims this would be one of the most wide reaching inquiries Scotland has ever seen, by 25th November 2015, survivors accused Hollyrood of now being complicit in the cover up after the inquiry remit was restricted to mainly abuse in residential care – blocking many survivors from giving their testimony in one fell swoop.

    The Charity supporting the survivors stating

    ““This decision resulted in many victims, who had suffered grievous abuse, being excluded from the inquiry. We are of the view that this decision has enabled institutions and organisations, who have covered up criminal activity, to escape public scrutiny, and possible prosecution. The failure to extend the remit of the inquiry has effectively resulted in the Government becoming complicit in a cover-up of abuse.”

    And as well as blocking many survivors from giving evidence, survivors soon realised why as it was revealed the Charity spokesperson

    “also hit out over what he claimed was the Government’s failure to properly address the issue of compensation payments.

    “At meetings with officials about redress, it became clear that they had instructions to shut down any discussions about compensation or interim payments for sick and elderly survivors.

    This has caused considerable distress amongst survivors as they feel that they had been failed yet again by the establishment”

    Seven months later, in June 2016 we learned

    “Professor Michael Lamb resigned from the panel, stating that the inquiry was “doomed” due to government interference.”

    “Mr Lamb, who headed a research unit at the US National Institute of Child Health and Human Development in Washington DC for 17 years, said “repeated threats” to the inquiry’s independence had undermined its work and left it “doomed before the first witness has been heard”.

    He said the government had delayed or prevented the appointment of members of staff and said the inquiry had to wait for prolonged periods before making key decisions.”

    Then just a week later, on the 5th July 2016 we discovered the Chair of the Inquiry, Susan O’Brien had been “asked to go” with a report revealing

    “The Scottish Government says she was asked to go after she made “inappropriate comments” during a training session in February. But in her resignation letter, O’Brien insists threats to oust her were being made as early as January.

    There are reports that friction was caused by O’Brien’s desire to use junior counsel as opposed to in-house officials to take testimony. Education secretary John Swinney says junior counsel would have cost £100 an hour.”

    Susan O’Brian is now suing the Scottish Government for £500,000 as a result with a report revealing fellow panel members opposed this move by the Scottish Government Ministers to effectively sack the independent chair of the inquiry with the report going on to say

    “First Minster Nicola Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament:

    “We don’t accept Professor Lamb’s comments about the independence of the Inquiry.”

    The legal papers state:

    “She (Ms O’Brien) considered that she had a duty to inform the public that the Inquiry’s independence was being actively undermined by the defenders (Scottish government).”

    “Ms O’Brien also argues ministers lacked any legal right to remove her and seeks damages for loss of earnings and damage to her reputation.”

    So who made the accusations against Ms O’Brien QC, 11 weeks after she is meant to have overhead O’Brien making so called inappropriate comments – an SNP candidate making money from the inquiry.

    “At the centre of the controversy is child abuse expert Claire Fyvie, from the Rivers Centre for Traumatic Stress, which was funded to provide three months of support to those taking evidence. It was Fyvie who overheard O’Brien’s comments and reported them to ministers. Fyvie had been an SNP candidate in the North Lanarkshire council elections.

    The third panel member, Glenn Houston, chief executive of the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority of Northern Ireland, who has not resigned, wrote a letter in support of O’Brien.”

    The inquiry then “commissioned” Professor Lorraine Radford of the University of Central Lancashire, to undertake a review of evidence of the prevalence of child abuse in Scotland  – who was head of research for children’s charity NSPCC for nearly six years.

    The UK Privy Council controls universities too – and NSPCC is the charity accused of exaggeration and fabrication of facts and research as its peculiar brand of anti-parent propaganda to promote itself – using Tory party favourite PR company Saatchi and Saatchi to run expensive NSPCC promotion campaigns. 

    With the 2004 story headlined

    “A danger to the nation’s children The NSPCC’s new ‘Someone To Turn To’ campaign will poison family relations, says the author of Paranoid Parenting”.

    Weeks after the chair of the inquiry was pushed out by the Scottish Government Nicola took the opportunity to appoint a “judge”, Lady Anne Smith  to “head the inquiry” as the new Chairwoman.

    While John Swinney claimed

    “It is in the nature of Lady Smith’s background as an experienced judge that the inquiry will be taken forward without fear or favour to identify how individuals and institutions failed many of Scotland’s most vulnerable children.”

    Now we are told judges are independent of government, politicians and political parties.

    What Nicola, Lady Smith and John Swinney did NOT say is that Lady Smith is in the UK Privy Council for life with Nicola Sturgeon – where they both swear an oath of secrecy to become members – to keep all state secrets together for life.

    Does this include blocking state secrets about state child abuse?

    Lady Smith soon showed her intentions as to survivors horror in January 2017 they found out under Lady Smith’s chairmanship the inquiry had now decided

    “that if any perpetrator of abuse were mentioned in evidence, he or she would be informed.”

    Not only would those who stand accused of abuse be told – Lady Smith decided all the alleged abusers would be given a list of names of every survivor who pointed the finger at them for what they had done.

    The BBC adding

    “The charity said this could deter many survivors from coming forward – so it was vital that they had access to legal advice to support them in giving evidence.”

    On 20th February 2017 BBC revealed the inquiry had moved to block 1,058 survivors getting the legal assistance, financial support required to give evidence and to deny them the ability to cross-examine witnesses.

    Lady Smith achieved this by refusing to give the Charity, Wellbeing Scotland, offiicial status despite the charity supporting 1,058 survivors and is

    “the largest organisation in Scotland specialising in historical child abuse cases so it was imperative that it could give evidence to the inquiry”

    with the BBS stating the inquiry (Lady Smith) felt

    “the organisation did not meet the criteria to play a significant role.”

    This after the Scottish Government, in August 2016, refusing to provide the charities supporting the victims with £13.5 million in funding required and meant to provide further support to survivors over 5 years.

    Instead the Scottish Government set up their own survivor support service to get the money instead and then

    “asked for information about their cases to be transferred to a new support service for abuse survivors.

    The clients of Open Secret” (now Wellbeing Scotland) “and the In Care Survivor Service say the move risk breaching their confidentiality, despite the fact that the government says data will by anonymous.”

    This move a blatant attempt for the Scottish Government to get their hands on all the victims files and their personal details. 

    Would Lady Smith provide those details to those who standaccused too – before the victims have a chance to give evidence to the inquiry?

    This move forced Wellbeing Scotland, to block the Scottish Government “request to work with the new initiative” (as planned?) as the Scottish government claimed their new

    “In Care Survivor Support Fund Service” funded with £13.5m over 5 years

    “aims to direct people to the help they need, and could send them back to Open Secret, which would be paid for each case they take on.”

    “But the charity’s chief executive Janine Rennie said she would rather shut than risk the privacy of clients.”The Scottish Government has asked for details of vulnerable survivors to help them “transition” to a new service. We have said under no circumstances will we be passing on any confidential information, even if that means our service comes to an end,” she said.”

    The day before a report revealed

    “Civil servants have told the charity running In Care Survivors Service Scotland that funding could be at risk if it refuses to hand over details of its work.

    Some abuse survivors say there could be suicides if the counselling service, which has been run by Falkirk-based charity Open Secret since 2008, is stopped.

    It has worked with more than 1000 people who suffered sexual or physical abuse, or both, while in care, and offers one-to-one counselling, group work, befriending and advocacy.

    The Scottish Government provides £200,000 of funding per year.”

    Not long after the Scottish Government removed the funding to bankrupt the charity so survivors of state child abuse would be left with no support.

    Then on 21st Feb 2017, the day after we learned the Charity supporting the victims was being blocked by Lady Smith – the last remaining independent panel member announced he had been given two public sector jobs and he resigned to go collect the money from two public sector jobs, where he said

    ” a “change in priorities” in his working life meant he had applied for positions at the Northern Health and Social Care Trust and the Disclosure and Barring Service.”

    “I have now been successful in those applications and the appointments have been made”

    With the BBC revealing

    “A successor to Mr Houston will not be appointed to the inquiry so Lady Smith will continue as the sole panel member.

    The Scottish government said this brought it in line with other public inquiries established in Scotland under the 2005 Inquiries Act.

    All this has ensured this leaves Nicola Sturgeon’s fellow UK privy councillor for life in sole charge of the four year Inquiry.

    When the state defendant interferes with due process to remove independent panel members to replace them with a hand picked Judge with a conflict of interest with Nicola Sturgeon – both sworn to keep state secrets together – this is not an independent inquiry but a blatant cover up as survivors tried to warn – and a blatant abuse of position and power by Sturgeon, Swinney and Smith.

    But the story does not end there as abuse survivors are being told the state and the residential institutions have lost their files or there is no record of them being in care at all.

    Well I say – time for the survivors to pick women they know and can trust and the Scottish Nation demands survivors and a team of volunteer women are given complete access to all files and archives of the state, councils, social work and these residential institutions – and I bet we will find those so called missing files.

    And as for Sturgeon abusing her power to order civil servants to remove the funding from the charity supporting 1,058 survivors – in a blatant attempt to get her hands on all the victims files – that alone should be cause for a police inquiry – tampering with an inquiry and a jail term.

    What sort of women are Sturgeon and Smith – the sort of women the Royal family want in their UK Privy Council for life – just as they wanted Thatcher and May. cached

    Barry Bennell faces a further 14 child sex offence charges. *55* in total

    Former football coach Barry Bennell is facing a further 14 counts of non-recent sexual assault on boys aged between 11 and 14.

    According to the Crown Prosecution Service the new charges relate to 10 counts of indecent assault and four counts of buggery which were alleged to have taken place between 1983 and 1990.

    It follows a string of previous allegations made against the 63-year-old.

    A CPS spokesperson said: “Today, 20 June, former professional football coach Barry Bennell, 63, was informed that he has been charged with 14 counts of non-recent child sexual abuse against boys aged 11 to 14 years.”

    The former Crewe Alexandra coach will appear via video link at South Cheshire Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday June 28 in relation to these charges.

    In total he is facing charges of 55 offences between 1979 and 1991 against young boys.

    He has previously denied accusations made against him during a succession of court appearances.

    Porthleven woman Leyna Tucker who died after falling from cliffs had spoken of sex abuse as a child

    June 17, 2017

    Brave Leyna Tucker who had a public battle with her past
    A woman who died after falling from cliffs at Porthleven had bravely spoken of her ordeal as the victim of sex abuse as a child.
    Leyna Tucker had waived her right to anonymity after seeing her step-father, Andrew Fulcher, put behind bars for the crimes he committed against her 30 years ago.
    Her husband of 11 years, John Tucker, said that he was hugely proud of her actions, which she hoped would inspire other victims of vile abuse to come forward.
    But he said the court case “took it out of her” and that the 47-year-old “couldn’t handle it in the end.”


    Leyna and her husband John

    “She made my life worth living,” John, 59, pictured above with Leyna, a former heating engineer told the Plymouth Herald.
    “Everyone loved her, she was a popular girl but the court case took it out of her. She couldn’t handle it in the end.”
    John explained how Leyna had suffered depression bouts throughout her life – trying three or four times to take her own life.
    “She just didn’t like the way anti-depressants made her feel,” he added.
    He spoke of the horrifying moment he discovered that Leyna had taken her life.
    “She went out that night, looking forward to having some fun with friends, she was happy.

    Leyna waived her right to anonymity after seeing her step-father Andrew Fulcher, above, convicted
    “She liked to drink and she liked to party – she would always be the first on the dance floor.
    “It was a total shock to wake up to a message from her to saying she was going to take her life,” John said.
    “They were the hardest words to hear. She told me to look after our dog Gracie and that she loved me.”
    But John had a suspicion about what encouraged Leyna’s recent downturn.

    Leyna loved to go fishing
    “She lived with it for 30 years but he’s only had to for the last two. I think she secretly feared the perpetrator would be out soon.
    “I think she was dreading that phone call from the police.”
    John’s previous wife had died from breast cancer and Leyna comforted and helped him through the difficult time.
    The couple met in Bournemouth in 2002, where Leyna lived, and married in 2006 – living in Porthleven together ever since.


    Leyna waived her right to anonymity to help others

    “She loved it down here – she just loved the way of life and everyone she worked for adored her.”
    Caring Leyna had always worked in hospitality, holding a role in Table Table in the Carnon Downs for many years.
    But three months before she died, Leyna began work for Porthgwara in Coverack, a residential home, which John said had made her the happiest she had been in her career.
    “She was caring and enjoyed looking after people. She was finally doing what she loved. She was the happiest when she got out of hospitality and went into caring.”

    Leyna loved going fishing
    The pair had booked a £5,000 holiday to the Dominican Republic for John’s 60th birthday which they were both looking forward to.
    “When she was feeling depressed it would hit her hard but she would hide it from friends and work colleagues because she didn’t want to burden them,” John added.
    But there was so much more to Leyna than her depression. Her passions in life were walking their rescue dog, a Weimaraner called Gracie and going fishing.
    “Leyna loved fishing off the local charter boats and we also did a lot of beach fishing where she would do a barbecue whilst we caught them.”

    Leyna waived her right to anonymity to help others
    She was a woman of many talents, having taken ballet lessons before her abuse started and showed great promise.
    Leyna was also a lover of nature. The pair had just bought bushes with a plan to cover the perimeter of their garden because she wanted it to attract more birds and insects.
    John’s message to other victims of abuse was clear – do speak out but look after yourself in the aftermath.
    “Other abuse victims must come forward and convict their abusers,” he said. “But also need to seek counselling which Leyna could not do.
    “I can’t praise her enough. She was brave enough to go to the court case but she wouldn’t have counselling afterwards.”

    Leyna loved her pet dog
    John explained what made Leyna speak out after three decades about her difficult childhood.
    “With the Jimmy Saville publication she decided to stand up to him. She realised she wasn’t alone and she felt she had to tell her story.”
    Passionate John said he does not want people to be deterred from speaking out because Leyna took her life.
    “I would still back anyone who’s thinking of speaking out. It takes a lot out of a person to do what they do – but she was so strong.”

    Leyna waived her right to anonymity to help others
    Andrew Fulcher, then 64, who Leyna branded “evil and sadistic” was convicted by a jury of eight counts of indecent assault against Leyna and another girl between 1980 and 1987.
    He had denied all the offences but was convicted after a trial at Plymouth Crown Court in July 2015.
    Leyna had said she wanted to unmask Fulcher as a molester but not until her mother had died.
    Her mother Rose, Fulcher’s wife, died three years ago before going to the police.
    He engineered situations where he could touch her inappropriately over her clothes, such as pretending to teach her to play the guitar in her bedroom. The jury found that it happened time and time again.
    Leyna had said at the time of the trial: “Looking back, my childhood ended the day he came into our small tight-knit family.”

    Leyna waived her right to anonymity to help others
    The second victim of Fulcher, who has not waived her right to anonymity, told the court in a statement that she had been unable to trust men after she was abused by him.
    Leyna told of how her reaction to the abuse saw her ‘never want to be by herself’, allowing herself to get into abusive relationships and bullying others at school.
    She said it had taken 30 years to realise “it was not my fault – he is responsible”.
    Judge Darlow praised Leyna’s bravery and said: “This was a gross breach of trust. The one place a child is entitled to feel safe is in their own home.”

    De La Salle Brothers ‘failed’ abused boys

     15th JUNE 2017

    The leader of a religious order has apologised for a “disturbing lack of awareness” which allowed staff to physically and sexually abuse boys at residential schools.

    Brother Laurence Hughes, head of the De La Salle Brothers in Great Britain and Ireland, told the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry he would have expected other members of staff to have known what was going on.

    Br Hughes said he had already met with survivors abused by the congregation in Northern Ireland and was prepared to do so in Scotland.

    The inquiry, before Lady Smith, was told an estimated 9,300 pupils, many with emotional and behavioural difficulties, attended five institutions run by the Brothers between 1914 and 1992.

    Last year 82-year-old Michael Murphy, known as Brother Benedict, was jailed for seven years for physically and sexually abusing boys in his care during the 1970s and 1980s at St Joseph’s School in Tranent, East Lothian.

    He had previously been convicted for physically assaulting boys at St Ninian’s School at Gartmore, near Stirling, between 1960 and 1969 which was run by the De La Salle Brothers until 1982.

    Asked by Colin MacAulay, lead counsel to the inquiry, if there was an acknowledgement abuse had taken place at St Joseph’s, Br Hughes said: “We acknowledge the abuse which was confined to the convictions against one brother.”

    However, he admitted the abuse “may not be confined” to that particular case.

    Lady Smith asked: “You accept other abuse happened?”

    “I do,” replied Br Hughes, adding that he accepted failures had taken place.

    He said: “Clearly the perpetrator is not going to be broadcasting what they’re doing, but there must have been somebody who was aware what was happening, whether that was a Brother, a lay person or a member of the board…”

    Br Hughes said as a chaplain elsewhere in the country he had personally heard allegations of abuse which he had passed to safeguarding officers and would have expected the same to have happened at St Joseph’s.

    At Murphy’s trial in 2003, the court heard how the priest had tortured boys at St Ninian’s with electric shocks and had forced them to eat their own vomit. Murphy had also broken a child’s arm after he was cheeky to the priest.

    Two lay members of staff at St Ninian’s, woodwork teacher Charles McKenna and groundsman James McKinstry, were convicted of a number of sex offences at the same trial.

    Asked yesterday if he had a message for the victims, Br Hughes said: “When I became provincial (of the order) in 2015, it was towards the end of the Northern Ireland (child abuse) inquiry.

    “My concern was certainly for the victims. One of the victims asked to speak to me and over the last two years I have spoken to at least four people who have been abused…” He added: “I made it very clear that I am available.”

    Asked if he was now making the same offer to victims in Scotland, he replied: “I am.”

    Earlier, the inquiry heard from Sister Rosemary Kean, of the Good Shepherd Sisters, that her congregation had “no knowledge” of abuse taking place at five establishments for girls in Scotland. It has previously been alleged that nuns physically assaulted children at the Good Shepherd Centre in Bishopton, Renfrewshire in the 1970s.

    Sr Kean said: “We have no knowledge of abuse having taken place at any time and certainly no records. There were some allegations made against two sisters but they were acquitted of every charge.” http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/de-la-salle-brothers-failed-abused-boys-1-4477322     https://archive.is/mKoAT
