operation fernbridge,the fight back begins

Post by willowthewisp on 02.09.17 14:00

So the"bungled Investigation"Operation fernbridge has failed to bring about any convictions of child abuse?
It now seems as thought the only person likely to be prosecuted for any Criminal activity is the character known as Nick on charges of Perverting the Course of Justice?
It has since become exposed that senior personnel from within the Metropolitan Police Force had known that"Nick"had an under cover tryst into the Generals abode as part of a visitor pass,thus when Nick was asked by Police to corroborate certain places in the Generals abode his answers were taken as a given fact towards evidence of child abuse having taken place in this Establishment? 
Now the Metropolitan Police Service has agreed to pay"Compensation" to the aforementioned parties, One former Major General from the British Army and the late departed Sir Leon Britain and their families,Harvey Proctor is believed to be pursuing his claim through civil redress?
So If the Police knew their"Main Witness Nick" had had a secret "Tryst"into the Generals main Abode,where the "Alleged Acts" of Indecency occurred,is the Metropolitan Police Force then "Entrapment" or hung by there own pethard?
Now anyone prepared to take a wager of Nick being prosecuted for Perverting the Course of Justice,where the Metropolitan Police would have to reveal what evidence they had before any Raids in a court of Law in the UK,100/1 of a successful prosecution or the Crown drops the Case on cost grounds?
Is this stage one of IICSA,we could find No evidence after tough investigations,you know a bit like all those Care Homes we were supposed to be protecting from the Evil Paedophiles,who then used young vulnerable adolescent Boys Girls into Prostitution,like Rochdale,Rotherham,Lambeth,Islington,Richmond,Elm Guest House?

Operation Fernbridge

Post by willowthewisp on 03.09.17 12:20

So Operation Fernbridge debacle has long orchestrated connections to the Metropolitan Police service,now there is only a very slim chance of any prosecutions,(Hi nick)Perverting the course of Justice?
Did the Metropolitan Police Service induce Nick to have a secret tryst adventure into Lord Brammall's family abode,as several high ranking officers had knowledge of this expedition,wherebye Nick was able convincingly to alert the Police of which Rooms where used for the alleged assaults to have taken place in,or was this part of an Entrapment procedue,Trojen horse,once we'er in there we'll find the Evidence,Not??
Richard Henricques report and Sir Bernard Hogan Howes appearance before the Home Office Select Committee on Operation Fernbridge should now be able to conclude who knew what and when they knew what Evidence they were proceeding with in regard to Lord Leon Britain and Lord Brammall,now that compensation arrangements are to be paid to the"Innocent parties" Harvey Proctor is seeking a Civil redress against the Metropolitan Police Service Force? 
Looks as though Teflon Bernard has managed to escape once again with a Trail flotsome floating behind the Trawler feasting on the sprats?
Seems some what curious how all these Perpetrators,facilitators(Big Fish) to procuring minors always manage to escape being caught by the"Yards Elite Police personnel,must be a "New Modus Operandi"?

I know some people don't think much of her and there has certainly been a concerted campaign to discredit her and her allegations, but some interesting tweets and connections following yesterdays decision by the CPS to take three of the complaints no further. There are more cases which are still under investigation.

As with all of these type of allegations, how on earth can you prove it, when it is just one persons word against anothers?

As for the 'Turnbull guidelines', 'mistakes in recognition of close friends and relatives are sometimes made'. Really? How often is 'sometimes'?

You just haven't got a chance.

Hi Esther Baker I know you must feel devastated after coming forward to present your case and the result of the investigation into child abuse,IICSA,it seems as though even it was plastered directly in front of some peoples faces,it still wouldn't,couldn't be proof of child abuse,let alone the Turnbull system used as guidance,more like Bull shit we don't believe you?
The public have seen a wide majority of MP's from all parties and their friends to have been involved with putting themselves in precarious positions with regard to child abuse,Thorpe,Smith,BoysenJanner,Clarke,Righton,Boothby, Krays,Drieberg,Cliff, Jimmy?"Clean as a proverbial whistle" even Alison Saunders was shamed into supporting,Janner,with his ever so Loyal lap dog Keith Vaz,now this man can get his Shirts White, dazzling White,labours next Vaz,Chuka Umuna?
Yet,Hall,Harris,Clifford and various DJ's from the sixties on wards,Guilty as charged?
It's all a game to the elite from the establishment with their sneaky friends from MI5/6 until one day,pop,your know longer required and the nest is disturbed releasing facts of that person to sneaky little cohort friends in the media?
The Police have been involved with trying to protect vulnerable adolescents supposedly over the past fifty years,when it seems as though they have often been used as a conduit to facilitate this practice,which has become to be used by a certain number of people targeting the vulnerable young girls in most of these cases,Rochdale,Rotherham?
No doubt the Mods will be back on my case of Libel?

Sex abuse probe WILL investigate Ted Heath: Public inquiry set to look at explosive report by Chief Constable who says allegations against the ex-PM are '120 per cent' genuine

   Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will look at theoutcome of Operation Conifer, a inquiry into Heath by Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale
   His confidential report is due to be published in the next few weeks
   The developments came as one Tory MP warned his party not to try to stop Mr Veale from publishing his findings
   Findings of Operation Conifer support claims that Sir Edward’s alleged crimes were reported to police years ago but buried by the Establishment

By Simon Walters Political Editor For The Mail On Sunday

Published: 23:58 BST, 9 September 2017 | Updated: 00:35 BST, 10 September 2017

The controversial investigation into allegations that Sir Edward Heath was a paedophile has been dramatically widened, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Officials at Britain’s biggest ever public inquiry confirmed that they are to study the findings of an explosive police report into claims that the former Prime Minister was a child abuser.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse – set up to investigate claims that a Westminster paedophile ring was covered up by the Establishment – will now look at the outcome of Operation Conifer, a two-year inquiry into Heath led by Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale. His confidential report is due to be published in the next few weeks.

A spokesman for the IICSA told The Mail on Sunday last night: ‘In the context of the Westminster investigation, the inquiry will be interested to see and consider the outcome of Wiltshire Police’s investigation into allegations against Sir Edward Heath.’

It is believed to be the first time the inquiry has referred specifically to the Heath investigation.

The statement follows a little-noticed change on the IICSA website on August 30 that the scope of its Westminster inquiry is to be widened to take account of ‘recent police investigations’.

The amendment did not refer to Operation Conifer, but The Mail on Sunday has been told that it was linked to the imminent conclusion of Mr Veale’s probe.

The website added the IICSA would be ‘reviewing, collating and aggregating the work of previous investigations, some of which may not be in the public domain’.

The Mail on Sunday revealed earlier this year how Mr Veale defied pressure to call off his investigations because he believed some claims were ‘120 per cent genuine’.

The developments came as one Tory MP warned his party not to try to stop Mr Veale from publishing his findings.

Several Conservative politicians have called Operation Conifer, which has cost £1.5 million, a waste of time and public money. They say it is pointless because Sir Edward died 12 years ago and could never be prosecuted.

But Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said Mr Veale had been wrongly vilified and there were ‘powerful voices who would like to silence Operation Conifer’.

Mr Veale was a ‘courageous and honest’ policeman and ‘must be allowed to complete his investigation, free of abuse, intimidation or pressure,’ Mr Bridgen writes in today’s Mail on Sunday. There should be no cover-up, regardless of any embarrassment to the Conservatives – or anyone else.

In February, this newspaper reported that more than 30 people had come forward to Wiltshire Police with allegations of sexual abuse by Sir Edward. The alleged victims were said to have given ‘strikingly similar’ accounts of incidents, even though the individuals were not known to each other.

According to some sources, the findings of Operation Conifer support claims that Sir Edward’s alleged crimes were reported to police years ago but buried by the Establishment.


Inquiry One: Wiltshire police probe

Wiltshire Police have been investigating child abuse claims against Sir Edward Heath for the past two years. Led by Chief Constable Mike Veale Operation Conifer has cost taxpayers £1.5 million so far and will finish in the next six weeks.

At one stage there were 20 people working on the case: six detectives, a PC and 13 civilian staff. They have interviewed Heath’s former friends, staff and sailing companions, fellow politicians and civil servants, and even examined his papers in Oxford’s Bodleian Library.

A panel of experts was brought in to provide independent oversight of Operation Conifer following claims that it was a witch-hunt, and a waste of money given that Heath is dead and so cannot be prosecuted. Two people were arrested and questioned following claims made as part of Operation Conifer but in April they were told they faced no further action.

After the investigation is closed, a summary will be published, while a fuller report will be handed to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse to consider as part of its investigation into an alleged VIP paedophile ring in Westminster.
Inquiry Two: VIP sex ring report

The public inquiry into historic child abuse was set up by David Cameron in July 2014 after growing pressure from MPs and campaigners who feared the Establishment had covered up sex crimes by public figures.
Professor Alexis Jay became the fourth chairman last summer but immediately faced a fresh crisis as counsel to the inquiry, Ben Emmerson, was suspended and then resigned

But the inquiry struggled to get off the ground as the first two chairmen, Baroness Butler-Sloss and Dame Fiona Woolf, were forced to quit over perceived conflicts of interest.

The inquiry then chose New Zealand judge Dame Lowell Goddard to take over, but she too quit after a year in charge.

Professor Alexis Jay became the fourth chairman last summer but immediately faced a fresh crisis as counsel to the inquiry, Ben Emmerson, was suspended and then resigned.

Several other lawyers left and a series of survivors’ groups severed their links over their concerns about the inquiry’s leadership, scope and lack of progress.

The inquiry finally held its first public hearing in February this year after spending some £20 million, but it could last as long as a decade and cost more than £100 million.

Some of those who said he abused them are believed to have told police they went on to commit sexual abuse themselves as a result.

Operation Conifer was set up in 2015 in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal, but Mr Veale came under pressure to abandon it last year after separate claims of a paedophile ring at Westminster involving the late former Home Secretary Lord Brittan and ex-Defence chief Lord Bramall were found to be groundless.

The claims investigated by Wiltshire Police, understood to date from the 1960s to 1990s, are not linked to the discredited evidence of the man known as ‘Nick’, who made the false claims against Lord Brittan and Lord Bramall. The Met has now apologised and paid a reported £100,000 compensation.

Allegations that Sir Edward was involved in satanic orgies have been dismissed as fantasy by one expert asked to review the case.

Several senior politicians have dismissed allegations against Heath as absurd and unfounded. Former Tory Foreign Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind complained Sir Edward’s reputation was being ‘besmirched’.

Former Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong of Ilminster, who was Sir Edward’s private secretary in No 10, criticised the inquiry in a letter to The Times last week, saying the allegations were ‘totally uncharacteristic and unlikely.’

Lord Armstrong referred to unspecified ‘concerns about the conduct of the inquiry’ and called for ‘an independent review of the investigation by a retired judge’.

And Wiltshire Tory MP James Gray said: ‘I do not believe the allegations against Sir Edward. If Mr Veale fails to justify his inquiry, he will be in serious difficulties.’

Sir Edward’s sexuality has been the source of speculation for decades. Some believed he was gay, others said he was asexual. At one point, he was being investigated by five police forces: the Met, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Kent and Jersey.

The claims, some of which were proved false, include alleged links to a convicted brothel keeper known as Madam Ling-Ling.

A paedophile dossier compiled by Labour peer Baroness Castle, a member of Harold Wilson’s Labour Government in the 1970s, said Sir Edward offered young boys trips on his yacht. In a separate incident, one man claimed Sir Edward picked him up in the 1960s when he was a 12-year-old hitchhiking in Kent and lured him to his Mayfair flat.

A IICSA spokesman declined to say if the change in its official stance, as detailed on the website, was to enable it to consider the findings of Mr Veale’s report.

Wiltshire Police said it had not yet sent its findings to the national inquiry, but expected to do so within the next six weeks.

Thirty alleged victims and an inquiry mired in controversy

By Martin Beckford  

The police investigation into Sir Edward Heath was controversial from the very beginning.

Superintendent Sean Memory stood outside the gates of Arundells, the late PM’s home in Salisbury, to declare in a televised statement that ‘anyone who believes they may have been a victim’ should come forward.

Wiltshire Police has since acknowledged this was inappropriate, while Supt Memory is now on sick leave and being investigated for misconduct over an unrelated matter.

FLASHBACK: How The Mail on Sunday has reported the probe

The original claim under investigation was that the trial of a brothel keeper had once collapsed because she threatened to reveal how she procured boys for Heath.

But the Independent Police Complaints Commission watchdog later said there was no evidence of a cover-up.

More than a dozen people came forward to make allegations against Heath, who died in 2005 and who had been widely regarded as ‘completely asexual’ by friends.

Detectives were accused of going on a ‘fishing expedition’ by interviewing former Downing Street staff, Heath’s yacht crew and even the editor of Private Eye magazine, which had published jokes about ‘Sailor Heath’.

The most contentious allegation, however, was that Heath was linked to a network of paedophiles who held satanic orgies and stabbed children in churches.

The lurid claims were dismissed as fantasy by an expert in ritual abuse cases. Dr Rachel Hoskins concluded they were false memories unearthed in therapy.

She was also alarmed to discover that detectives were studying the discredited statements made by a man known only as ‘Nick’, who had falsely accused military chiefs and MPs, including Heath, of being part of a murderous VIP sex ring. After The Mail on Sunday revealed the astonishing allegations, Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale strongly defended his investigation, declaring in a rare open letter: ‘This is not a “fishing trip” or “witch-hunt”.’

Earlier this year this newspaper told how Mr Veale is convinced the claims against Heath are ‘120 per cent’ genuine.

The number of alleged victims to come forward has risen to more than 30 and some of their accounts are ‘strikingly similar’.

Because Heath is dead and so cannot stand trial, his guilt or innocence can never be proven, and so the controversy over the accusations will likely continue long after Operation Conifer finishes its work.


My party may not like it, but there must not be a cover-up, says Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire

I was greatly concerned when I read a letter in the Times on Friday concerning the police inquiry into claims of historic child sexual abuse by former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath.

The letter from Lord Armstrong of Ilminster, who was Sir Edward’s Downing Street private secretary, criticises Operation Conifer, led by Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale.

It refers to unspecified ‘concerns about [its] conduct’ and calls for ‘an independent review of the investigation by a retired judge’. In my view this is both unjustified and improper.

Lord Armstrong, who went on to become Cabinet Secretary, has made no secret of the fact that he thinks Sir Edward is innocent. He has described the allegations as ‘totally uncharacteristic and unlikely’.

With all due to respect to Lord Armstrong, I believe he would be well advised not to interfere.

He is not the only one who has criticised Mr Veale: he has been vilified by sections of the media and some of my fellow Conservative MPs.

My message to them is: Leave Mr Veale to do his job.

The timing of Lord Armstrong’s intervention is no coincidence. Mr Veale has indicated that he intends to publish a summary of the findings of Operation Conifer shortly. It would be wholly wrong if the Establishment had any part in this investigation.

It is natural that some will be sceptical about the investigation into Sir Edward. A separate inquiry by the Metropolitan Police, called Operation Midland, collapsed last year after the main allegations were found to be groundless.
For decades, rumours about Jimmy Savile were dismissed by institutions such as the BBC, terrified about the impact of negative publicity on their reputation

For decades, rumours about Jimmy Savile were dismissed by institutions such as the BBC, terrified about the impact of negative publicity on their reputation

Mr Veale declined calls to abandon his inquiry on the grounds that he believed the allegations concerning Sir Edward deserved to be taken seriously, on their own merit.

I congratulate him for doing so. I believe he is an honest, courageous and diligent police officer who deserves the chance to complete his investigation and announce his findings in public.

There are powerful voices who would like to silence Operation Conifer. My own party will be severely embarrassed if it transpires the claims against Sir Edward were true. But that is no reason for covering it up.

We have been here before. For decades, rumours about Jimmy Savile were dismissed by institutions such as the BBC, terrified about the impact of negative publicity on their reputation. It seems we have not learned our lesson. Sometimes the unthinkable does occur, and our knee-jerk reaction should not be to put a lid on it.

A brief period followed during which the chastened forces looked into historic allegations of abuse. But the process was tainted by a few bad apples who spotted the chance to revel in the limelight – and possibly make some money in the process.

But that should not be used by the Establishment as an excuse to shelve the entire process.

For all the problems associated with investigating these historic allegations, we have learned the hard way the perils of sweeping them under the carpet.

If we assume that all accusers are fantasists, we compound the distress of genuine victims who have carried their burden in secret for years.

As an MP, I have taken a close interest in trying to help these victims – the powerless against the powerful, battling to be heard when the weight of the state is lined up against them.

That is why Chief Constable Veale must be allowed to complete his investigation, free of intimidation of any sort.

Referring to the inquiry, set up when she was Home Secretary, Theresa May said last week: ‘If we turn a blind eye to this abuse, as has happened too much in the past, more crimes will be committed and more children will be suffering in silence.’

The Prime Minister is right.

I am always wary of possible fake news but this is very interesting as  “national security”, "cover-up" , "trying to shut the investigator up" & "repeated attempts to interfere with a police operation" all very McCannish isn't it?

Edward Heath: police delayed Conifer report to avoid overshadowing Tory conference


23.09.17
By Mark Watts


Police delayed publishing a report on their investigation into Sir Edward Heath over child sexual abuse to avoid overshadowing the Conservative party conference.
Mike Veale, chief constable of Wiltshire Police, has sent a full, confidential report detailing evidence that Heath was an active paedophile while he was prime minister to Amber Rudd, home secretary, in the past fortnight.
Officers on the investigation believe that Ted Heath would have to go on trial if he were still alive. One source said: “I have seen successful prosecutions on a lot less than Mike Veale has already got.”
Veale was planning to publish a summary report on ‘Operation Conifer’, the two-year investigation into Heath, at the end of next week.
When he realised that the Conservative conference was next weekend, he decided to delay publication by a week.
Wiltshire Police announced on Thursday that the summary report would be published on October 5, the day after the Conservative conference closes with a speech from the prime minister, Theresa May.
A second source close to Veale said: “When Conifer does come out, I think that it will be dynamite.”
Both sources say that Veale is personally convinced, on the strength of Operation Conifer, that Heath was a paedophile.
The second source said: “The evidence speaks for itself.”
But they stress that it is not for the police to express a view on Heath’s guilt in their report.
The report says that, were Heath alive, detectives would next interview him under caution, with a view to sending a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for charging decisions.
It stresses that it would be for a jury to decide whether he was guilty.
Wiltshire Police, which has come under intense pressure from establishment figures and media to drop the investigation, is planning to hold a lengthy press conference to mark the publication of the summary report.
The full report will also go to the inquiry into child sexual abuse.
Officers on Operation Conifer see the report as a “game-changer” on the issue of “VIP paedophiles”.
It is understood that more than 30 witnesses, who police regard as credible and independent of each other, testified to child sexual abuse by Heath. Several have told me that they are satisfied with how officers investigated their cases.
Wiltshire Police brought in retired officers to help with the investigation because of its huge scale.
Operation Conifer, which was due to conclude in June, was extended because 14 more people who claimed to have been sexually abused by Heath as boys had come forward. Officers expect that publication of the summary report will prompt even more witnesses to come forward.
Veale believes that the investigation raises “national security” concerns – historically and currently.
Evidence that Heath was a compromised prime minister would raise obvious issues about national security.
But Veale is also concerned about those who helped cover up for him and remain vulnerable to being compromised.
Veale also believes that there has been a desperate attempt to continue the cover-up in the face of Operation Conifer, to stop his investigation and to have him sacked.
The second source said: “They are trying to shut him up. But they will not be able to keep a lid on this.”
“He is completely determined. Even if he is going to lose his career over it, he is going to do it.”
He added: “Mike Veale is a hero for taking this on and doing the job properly.”
Veale was taken aback by repeated attempts to interfere with a police operation. Critics have gone so far as to question his mental health.
In an especially sinister twist, officers on Operation Conifer reported that they had been threatened, resulting in some leaving the investigation.
Veale had not taken part in any discussion about Sir Richard Henriques, the retired judge, "reviewing" Operation Conifer's report before the proposal was floated in the Press.
He refused to accept any judge to “review” the report. The only role for a judge, he told colleagues, would be to examine why there had been such a cover-up.
However, Wiltshire Police arranged for an “external audit” of Operation Conifer by officers from outside the constabulary. Veale regards the investigation as thorough and robust.
