Those who have allowed Lord Janner to escape prosecution should take responsibility for their failures and those who have protected him should themselves be prosecuted
Lord Janner was capable of writing a letter to protect his income from the House of Lords on 9th April according to a report in yesterday’s The Sunday Times. A week later, when the CPS decided not to prosecute him despite overwhelming evidence that he might have been a serial abuser, he was declared “of unsound mind”. Those who allowed this to happen should, in my view, be prosecuted.
Conveniently put out to pasture, Lord Janner has links to abuse in children’s homes and also what went on at the Elm Guest House. His being protected has sent yet another signal that victims will not get justice and now that it has also been revealed that the Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders consulted with a barrister who worked with Janner’s son, public confidence in those dealing with this and other similar cases is well and truly shattered.
Home Secretary Theresa May has been responsible for two heads of the inquiry into historical sexual abuse being forced to resign and now, with Janner having gotten away without charge, it is time for heads to roll. Theresa May’s position is untenable and it is time for this disgraceful and incompetent woman to herself go.
