Who's protecting Lord Janner ? As if we didn't know. Oi veh !

-------------------------------------------------------------

Three chances to prosecute Labour peer Lord Janner for child abuse were missed: CPS admits mistakes were made but now it is too late because he has dementia 

  • Lord Janner will not face prosecution despite facing credible evidence 
  • The Director of Public Prosecutions says decision made with 'deep regret' 
  • Alison Saunders says investigations in 1991, 2002 and 2007 were botched 
  • Lord Janner allegedly preyed on boys in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s

Allegations: Lord Janner has repeatedly denied claims he abused young boys at care homes and is now not fit to stand trial despite 'credible evidence'

Lord Janner should have been charged with historic child sex offences on three occasions over 25 years and will now never be prosecuted because of the 'severity' of his dementia, the Crown Prosecution Service said today.
Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions, has expressed her 'deep regret' the former Labour MP for Leicester West, 86, will not face trial because of botched investigations in 1991, 2002 and 2007.
The decision not to charge him with 22 alleged sex attacks on children has infuriated police and campaigners, who have called it 'perverse' and a 'step backwards for justice'.
Leicestershire Police may appeal because they handed the CPS 'credible evidence', including videos, showing 'this man carried out some of the most serious sexual crimes imaginable'.
Labour has now suspended the veteran peer from the party 'in light of these very serious allegations'.
More than a dozen people came forward to claim Lord Janner abused them during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, the CPS said.
Today they admitted there is enough evidence to prosecute the peer for 16 indecent assaults and six counts of buggery, but he is no longer fit to stand trial.
In a statement Alison Saunders said: 'The CPS judges that mistakes were made in the decision making at the time by both the Leicestershire police and the CPS. 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'.
She said Janner may have 'befriended the manager of a children's care home to allow him access to children in order to allow him to perpetrate serious sexual offences on children'.
But almost 25 years after he was first investigated poor health means the CPS has decided to not pursue the case in the courts.
Ms Saunders said: '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.
'But for medical considerations, it would undoubtedly have been in the public interest to prosecute'.
Last year, Mrs Saunders (pictured) said prosecutors will pursue justice for victims of child sex crimes whether their cases were '30 days or 30 years old' - but admitted they will not in the Janner case

Labour has now suspended the veteran peer from the party.
Detectives have interviewed more than 20 men who claim they were abused, but have been unable to speak to Lord Janner because of his poor health. 
Leicestershire Police said they are 'exploring what possible legal avenues there may be to challenge' the decision by the CPS.

The force says it has seized cine film and video evidence that could be used to prosecute the peer - and says the CPS' decision is the 'wrong one'. 
Assistant Chief Constable Roger Bannister of Leicestershire Police, who has overseen the investigation, said: 'There is credible evidence that this man carried out some of the most serious sexual crimes imaginable over three decades against children who were highly vulnerable and the majority of whom were in care.
'I am extremely worried about the impact the decision not to prosecute him will have on those people, and more widely I am worried about the message this decision sends out to others , both past and present, who have suffered and are suffering sexual abuse.
'We are exploring what possible legal avenues there may be to challenge this decision and victims themselves have a right to review under a CPS procedure.' 
The investigation, codenamed Operation Enamel, traced 25 people who allege that they were sexually abused by him.
The CPS has spoken to all of them ahead of the announcement to tell them he will not face trial. 
Lord Janner was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2009 and requires round-the-clock care.
The CPS said that 'but for medical considerations, it would undoubtedly have been in the public interest to prosecute' and the peer would be facing trial.
But because of his condition, which affects the memory, Lord Jenner is not fit to plead or give evidence, and therefore a criminal trial 'could not now properly take place'.
Lord Janner's alleged victims have been old about the decision, and have said they want to tell their stories publicly.
Alison Saunders, the Director of Public Prosecutions, said: 'The lack of a prosecution will be extremely disappointing to complainants. I have written to each of them, explaining the reasons for the decision, inviting them to a meeting with me so that I can explain any matters to them further, should they wish.'

Leicestershire Police said in a statement: 'During the course of the investigation, more than 2,000 individuals were seen and 442 statements taken. Detectives pursued more than 2,700 lines of enquiry, and seized/created nearly 600 exhibits including cine film and videos'. 
The controversial decision will spar fury among his alleged victims and child abuse campaigners who will see it as a landmark climbdown.
Last year, Mrs Saunders said prosecutors will pursue justice for victims of child sex crimes whether their cases were '30 days or 30 years old'.
She is already under huge pressure amid criticism of high-profile prosecutions of journalists accused of illegally paying public officials for information.
Lord Janner has avoided prosecution before after a bungled Leicestershire Police inquiry between 1989 and 1991. He was interviewed at a police station but senior officers told detectives not to arrest him or search his properties.

Police visited alleged victims of Lord Janner yesterday evening to inform them of the decision. 
Senior figures at Leicestershire Police are unhappy with the decision, with one describing it as 'perverse'.
Some believe there is enough evidence for a 'trial of the facts' in Lord Janner's absence which would settle the matter once and for all. The long-running Leicestershire Police inquiry, codenamed Operation Enamel, will continue as it has identified other suspects.
Last night, Pete Saunders of the National Association of People Abused in Childhood, said the decision was a 'step backwards for justice'.
'There is enough evidence to proceed with the case and for Alison Saunders to say it is not in the public interest is an outrage,' he said. 'I am not saying it is in the public interest to send a very old man to prison, but surely it is in the public interest to expose the evidence and give victims the chance to be heard.
'The message here is that if you are old or important you can still get away with it.'
Leicestershire Police have amassed a huge dossier of information during their investigation into claims about Lord Janner. This has led to warrants being obtained to search his home in north London and his office in the House of Lords.
The claims against him first surfaced during an investigation into Frank Beck, a manager of Leicester children's homes who died in jail after being convicted of abusing boys in his care.
A former resident of one home alleged he had a two-year sexual relationship with the MP when he was a teenager in the 1970s.
The alleged victim later caused controversy when he aired the allegations in public while giving evidence at Beck's trial in 1991.
MPs on all sides rallied around Lord Janner when he told the House of Commons the claims did not contain a 'shred of truth'.
But a former Leicestershire detective, now a leading chief constable, said senior officers blocked the probe.
Mick Creedon, who now runs Derbyshire Police, said he was ordered to limit his inquiries into Lord Janner despite 'credible evidence' against him. Last year, he said a decision made 'by people more senior than me' led to an inadequate police inquiry.
The 1989-91 inquiry was limited to an interview at Leicestershire Police HQ during which Lord Janner gave 'no comment' answers. A file was sent to the CPS, which decided there was insufficient evidence to bring charges.
When the allegations became public during Beck's trial, the jury was told they were a 'red herring' and irrelevant.
Lord Janner was made a life peer in 1997. The father of three, whose wife of more than 40 years died in 1996, has repeatedly strongly denied the allegations against him.

26th November 2013 - Lord Janner still voting in the Lords. 20th December 2013 Lord Janners house searched as part of historical sex abuse inquiry... Lord Janner stops voting in the Lords, and now the case against him has been dropped due to his dementia. What fortunate timing for such an unfortunate illness.

What about these old German soldiers they go after for war crimes?

Did I miss the name of the attending physician who has diagnosed dementia and what about a second opinion?

Saunders - is that her maiden or married name? Born north of the Border, is she one of those "Templar" Scots? Has the face for it.

Let's be clear about this...Janner's mission to the gentiles was to establish the holocaust myth as a replacement religion.

It's true he fucked a few young boys up the arse but millions of kids are now having their minds fucked up on a daily basis thanks to this Jew.

Cameron's government has just agreed to give £50 million (from British people stripped of benefits) to a holocaust museum to be part of Janner's holocaust educational trust...this decision should now become an election issue.
