Editors Note: It is extremely difficult to get any measure of justice in cases of satanic ritual abuse due to the active involvement of high government officials and the ruling elite.
On the island of Jersey, between the UK and France, ritual abuse of children had been going on for a very long time. Only recently were the facts brought to light when a former children’s home was being remodeled, secret underground chambers were unearthed and witnesses started coming forward in masse.
Last year a woman who financed a documentary on the case was attacked and died under mysterious circumstances. Now, the government of Jersey is going after the lead investigator on the case, who retired under death threats for exposing the horrific abuse.
Similar cases in other countries have met the same fate of cover-up and attacks on the victims, witnesses and investigators.
It makes one wonder who or what is really running our governments.
Exclusive Jersey Cop’s Fury As He Faces Charges On Child Home Probe
THE POLICE chief who led a probe into child abuse at a Jersey children’s home is under criminal investigation.
Scot Lenny Harper, 56, has been called back to the island for a court hearing but has refused because he fears arrest as a “scapegoat”.
Harper, the former deputy head of the States of Jersey Police, has been accused of keeping vital information from the police team that replaced him.
He is also alleged to have breached data protection and official secrets laws by leaking information about the investigation to the media.
Harper, an ex-deputy divisional commander for Strathclyde Police, was interviewed by Crown Office staff last week.
On Tuesday, he received a letter from Jersey attorney-general William Bailhache ordering him to court on January 28.
Harper, of Ayr, said last night denied withholding evidence.
He said: “I have been ordered to appear in Jersey at the Royal Court to give evidence and provide notebooks.
“They also want to see a farewell card which my former staff signed which they say contains evidence.
“The order is not enforceable in the United Kingdom.
“I have no evidence whatsoever to give or documents which the Jersey authorities do not have. They have spent many thousands of pounds trying to implicate me in Official Secrets Act and data protection offences on no evidence.
“I am being told certain officials in Jersey are falsely briefing against me and I would need to be stupid to expose myself to these people.”
Harper added he had told the Crown Office in Edinburgh he was prepared to answer the questions in any British court.
He went on: “They are using me as a scapegoat so they can drop all the abuse charges.
“Nothing should detract from the fact that there remain serious, credible allegations about the abuse of children in care in Jersey and these must be investigated.”
The inquiry centred on claims that children had been tortured and killed in secret chambers beneath Haut de la Garenne.
Police dug in the foundations of the disused home amid rumours that an abuse ring had been covered up for up to 40 years.
But detectives now in charge of the case say there is no evidence any children were killed despite Harper insisting the remains of at least five children had been found.
It was reported police had found evidence of a secret underground chamber, metal shackles and sites where children might lie buried.
And Harper continued to claima piece of a child’s skull had been found after being told it was a fragment of coconut shell.
The inquiry led to three men being charged over abuse of girls and boys as young as eight.
The Crown Office in Edinburgh confirmed yesterday they had been asked by the Jersey authorities to investigate on their behalf.
A spokesman said: “We are co-operating with the Jersey authorities.”
Graham Power, Jersey’s chief of police and ex-deputy chief at Lothian and Borders, remains suspended.
