Dear Home Office
Here is a letter I sent yesterday to the MoJ. As you know I have contacted you before concerning this case which has now been through the High Court and is awaiting further Appeal on behalf of the Mother.
My prime concern is for the children’s/victims safety in the interim from this moment in time until Appeal case is heard. I urge you to contact the MoJ and request details on what they plan to do in light of EU LEGAL DIRECTIVES which very clearly, give their full support only to the child-witness/victim statements given in freedom from influence of alleged abusers.
I quote from the letter below for details on exactly why Justice Pauffley’s recent High Court Judgement on the case reflects serious negligence to honour EU law and thereby, has left two children and perhaps many others, at serious risk of sexual abuse and even murder.
‘Considering how many times the children have changed their story depending on whom they are with i.e. alleged abusers and non-abusers – how in light of the LAW is it possible for any credible Judge to ignore the possibility that there is reason to doubt, the children’s latest testimony?
EU Law Directive 26 very clearly directs immediate investigation into any suspicion/possibility of child sexual abuse, child trafficking and child murder and regardless if witnesses etc retract their suspicions or allegations – mere suspicion is LEGALLY, enough to warrant an immediate and FULL investigation.’
And, most especially, when the later, video-recorded retraction interviews given to police (after children are removed from Mother and placed in care of their alleged abusers), begin with the 9 year old girl asking “WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY?”
This kind of EVIDENCE has to be taken into account when examining cases of child sexual abuse and on
what grounds can anyone be SURE that those children are NOT still at risk given their latest testimonies are given while under direct influence of abusers the children are RECORDED as saying had THREATENED TO KILL THEM IF THEY DISCLOSED???
How DARE such blatant ignorance be presented as ‘Justice’ in a civilised nation. It is truly despicable that NOWHERE, does there seem to be ANY consideration or compassion for the children as probable and possible long suffering victims of serious abuse, living in probable, possible fear for their lives, surrounded by their abusers consisting of father, police, cafcass officers and social workers – imagine if their story is true – HOW those children are suffering right now – how terribly let down they must feel – how afraid and HOW AT RISK.
According to EU Law, that risk CANNOT JUSTIFIABLY BE DENIED BECAUSE ALL RETRACTIONS OF ORIGINAL STATEMENTS WERE GIVEN WHILE IN HANDS OF ALLEGED ABUSERS.
Failure to act WILL result in charges of Treason against ALL Authorities who FAIL TO STAND BY THE LAW AND ACT TO PROTECT VULNERABLE CHILDREN.
I URGE that the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice move JOINTLY to act IMMEDIATELY and remove said children from care of present Authorities.
I URGE that COMPASSION be shown to the children and most especially, in light of the SERIOUS PROFESSIONAL NEGLIGENCE shown in the handling of their case by ALL Authorities concerned, that rather than children being handed over to yet MORE strangers, they are instead, permitted the MERCIFUL comfort of being allowed to
return to the familiarity of their London home, where their grandparents await and who are ready and capable to care for the children in the interim until the Mother’s Appeal.
It is also, of UTMOST importance that arrest warrants issued against Mother and her Counsel are made VOID in light of the children’s original allegations regarding abusive authorities and in light of police & Court FAILURE to HONOUR E.U. LAW. The Mother needs to be able to FREELY present her case in PERSON and she has a RIGHT to have contact with her children; those children NEED that reassurance right now.
The issue here is NOT whether or not the children’s story is true or false, the issue is about the LEGAL LEVEL OF EVIDENCE REQUIRED FOR A FULL INVESTIGATION INTO VERIFIABLE FACTS. It is OBSCENE that NO IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION TOOK PLACE (not even after medical evidence CONFIRMED REPEATED SEXUAL ABUSE) and because of that negligence, ALL ALLEGEDLY ABUSIVE PARTIES WERE GIVEN AMPLE TIME TO COVER THEIR TRACKS AND HIDE EVIDENCE. This is truly DESPICABLE because now, we may NEVER know the truth and that means many MORE children could be left at risk and with their resulting trauma left UNADDRESSED.
IT IS THESE ‘IF’S AND ‘COULD’S THAT EU CHILD PROTECTION LAW WAS WRITTEN TO DISPEL.
Please DO SOMETHING – restore some FAITH to the people of Britain that some with SENSE is up there in the HIGH OFFICES – PLEASE MOVE SWIFTLY TO PROTECT THE CHILDREN AND PLEASE DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE, AND INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION.
