As Lord Janner gets off scot-free, another example of The Establishment protecting its own is once again illustrated
Lord Janner’s lost his mind so now alleged victims must see justice for his alleged crimes against them swept under the carpet. This shameful result of what the Crown Prosecution Service have called “mistakes” is nothing other than a disgrace and frankly should result not in whimpering statements but in heads rolling.
On Thursday, the CPS issued a lengthy statement about this Labour peer and alleged abuser of boys as young as 13. It read:
“The CPS has concluded that Lord Greville Janner should not be prosecuted because of the severity of his dementia which means he is not fit to take part in any proceedings, there is no treatment for his condition, and there is no current or future risk of offending”.
“… In relation to the other three previous investigations, the CPS also now considers that the evidential test was passed”.
“… It follows that the CPS judges that mistakes were made in the decision-making at the time by both the Leicestershire police in 2002 and the CPS in 1991 and 2007. Lord Janner should have been prosecuted in relation to those complaints”.
“… It is a matter of deep regret that the decisions in relation to the previous investigations were as they were. Had the previous decisions been to prosecute, as they should have been, Lord Janner would have had the opportunity to challenge the evidence and defend himself through the trial process, with a jury ultimately deciding on his guilt or innocence some years ago”.
“Victims of the alleged offences have been denied the opportunity of criminal proceedings in relation to the offences of which they have complained. It is of obvious and particular concern that such proceedings did not take place as a result of what the CPS now consider to be wrong decisions”.
“In order to maintain public confidence in the administration of justice and to seek to learn appropriate lessons, the CPS has asked retired High Court Judge, Sir Richard Henriques, to conduct a thorough and independent review into the CPS decision making and handling of all past matters relating to this case; and to make whatever recommendations he considers appropriate. He has agreed to undertake this task”.
Whilst Lord Janner can now avoid being charged with sixteen counts of indecent assault and six of buggery, his alleged victims have just been handed a life sentence. How terribly convenient that there’s a General Election on.
Shame on The Establishment.
