The “Andrew Lewis Effect.”

Readers will be familiar with the phrase “The Streisand Effect” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect or as it is known locally “The Emma Martins Effect.” In the case of Streisand she attempted to suppress photographs of her house being published, which caused them to be published on a far greater scale than they would have been had she not tried to have them kept secret....

LENNY HARPER – ULSTER RADIO – 6TH AUGUST 2015



FORMER SENIOR INVESTIGATING OFFICER LENNY HARPER. 






FORMER SENIOR  INVESTIGATING OFFICER LENNY HARPER TALKS TO BBC RADIO ULSTER 


THURSDAY 6TH AUGUST 2015


Seven years after former Senior Investigating Officer, Lenny Harper, retired from the States of Jersey  Police he is still sought after by journalists and responds to any requests concerning the Jersey Child Abuse Investigation (Operation Rectangle). This is in stark contrast to the disappearing, leaking to David Rose, Mick Gradwell who took over from Lenny Harper in September 2008. It will be interesting to see if Mick Gradwell does indeed turn up to the Jersey Committee of Enquiry. 

Lenny Harper has always been there to support the cause of victims of child abuse....

JERSEY CHILD ABUSE INQUIRY – SERIOUS BREACH OF SECURITY?








"STATEMENT OF LENNY HARPER"



"SECURITY BREACH OF A HIGHLY SENSITIVE DOCUMENT"



"CHILD ABUSE INQUIRY SEND HIGHLY SENSITIVE DOCUMENT VIA UN REGISTERED POST"




After being notified that witnesses, to the ongoing Child Abuse Inquiry, had not recieved their statements to be checked for inaccuracies and signed of Team Voice contacted former Senior Investigating Officer, Lenny Harper of Jersey's Child Abuse Investigation (Operation Rectangle) to see if he had recieved his. We were aware that Mr Harper had been waiting for some months to sign his off. As it happens he had received his statement on Thursday the 2nd October the day we contacted him.  What we learnt from the former Senior Investigating Officer is that he received his draft statement through the post and that the envelope that contained it had been "damaged" (opened). 

These statements are produced by witnesses/victims/survivors sitting down with Evershed Lawyers from the Child Abuse Inquiry....

UPDATE ON THE COMMITTEE OF ENQUIRY – DECADES LONG CHILD ABUSE IN JERSEY CARE HOMES







States Greffe media release

APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS OF COMMITTEE OF INQUIRY INTO HISTORIC ABUSE

Following the nomination of Frances Oldham QC to chair the committee of inquiry into historical abuse 2 members are also being nominated to serve on the committee alongside her.
Subject to the approval of the States, Alexander (known as Sandy) Cameron CBE and Alyson Leslie will serve on the committee. Sandy Cameron is a retired Director of Social Work who also spent 7 years after his retirement as Chairman of the Parole Board for Scotland. In addition to his direct experience of residential child care as a social worker from 1969 he has worked throughout his career to improve the quality of residential care for children and has been instrumental in several initiatives to improve training and research in this area. Alyson Leslie, of the University of Dundee, is one of the UK’s leading child protection experts who has chaired and advised on some of the most difficult cases of abuse and child fatalities over the past three decades, including an inquiry in the Isle of Man in the 1990s. She has also undertaken a number of Serious Case Reviews and undertaken work on the contribution families and victims can make to reviews. In addition she has drafted procedural guidelines for the conduct of public inquiries that have been widely used in the UK.

Sandy Cameron and Alyson Leslie were selected to serve on the committee following interviews held in the UK by a selection panel comprising Frances Oldham QC, Michael de la Haye (Greffier of the States), Belinda Smith (Senior Legal Counsel – Child Protection at the NSPCC) and Ed Marsden (Verita).


Michael de la Haye said “The selection panel was delighted to be able to identify Sandy Cameron and Alyson Leslie to serve on the committee. Both have directly relevant experience in relation to the terms of reference and I am sure they will make a significant contribution to the inquiry’s work. Sandy Cameron explained to us at the interview that he had first been involved in placing a child in residential care in 1969 and he therefore brings vast experience of child care practices throughout the period that will be covered by the inquiry. In addition we considered that his 6 years as Chairman of the Parole Board in Scotland, where he had to assess huge amounts of paperwork and sit in a quasi-judicial capacity to hear conflicting evidence, have provided him with experience that will assist him greatly as a committee member. Alyson Leslie has significant experience of procedures for public inquiries but, more importantly, she has been directly involved either as Chair or as an Advisor in a number of extremely difficult and challenging public inquiries involving child abuse and child fatalities. She has a strong reputation for being independent and impartial and chaired a major inquiry in the Isle of Man in the 1990s. We felt that this experience of conducting an inquiry in a small island community was particularly relevant for the Jersey inquiry.”

We felt that this experience of conducting an inquiry in a small island community was particularly relevant for the Jersey inquiry.” 
Frances Oldham QC said “I intend to do all I can to ensure that the inquiry in Jersey is conducted in a way that encourages victims of abuse and other witnesses to come forward and give evidence in an atmosphere of trust so that we can produce a clear, evidence-based, report at the end of the process. When recruiting the 2 committee members to sit with me I was determined to find people who not only had the relevant skills and professional background but who also shared my vision of the way in which the inquiry should be conducted. It became very clear during the interviews that both Sandy Cameron and Alyson Leslie’s proposed approach to the inquiry was in line with my own and I am sure that their personal style and manner is exactly what is required to create the correct non-adversarial atmosphere for the inquiry. All 3 of us are available to start the inquiry early in 2014 and once our appointments have been ratified by the States Assembly we will be meeting to begin making plans”.
The nominations of Frances Oldham QC, Sandy Cameron and Alyson Leslie must be approved by the States and the Chief Minister will be lodging the necessary proposition so that the appointments can be considered by the Assembly in December.

Well you can have your say in the comments section below. I hope Mr Rose will come forward and explain the Jersey situation to us. Let us know the Jersey Politician that was leaking you doctored emails. I don't hide. I fight for Truth, Honesty and Integrity. 


Look at the headlines below written by Mr Rose for the Daily Mail concerning the Jersey Child Abuse Investigation. Why, when something needs trashing, concerning Child Abuse, do we get David Rose and the Mail on Sunday? Coincidence?I think not.


The Internet is changing the face of the game.  Information is being shared. People like Rose are finding it harder by the day to peddle their lies and half truths.

MoS reporter is a secret paedophile in the pay of MI5! Just one of the lies peddled about me on the web




In this newspaper last week, I brazenly became a 'cheerleader for paedophiles'. Indeed, I attempted a 'cover-up' on behalf of Britain's paedophile elite. This should come as no surprise because for years I have been part of a 'wretched, toxic cancer' that affects all corners of the Government and the judiciary, and I have spent decades 'smearing abused children'.

But even that only hints at deeper truths about me. I am not a journalist at all. I am 'a former MI5 agent' who 'specialises in fixing tricky problems which are inconveniencing the more conservative parts of the Establishment – by using spin, disinformation and pure lies'.

In fact, even more worryingly, I do not exist at all. I am merely a cipher, a fictitious individual concocted by this newspaper in order to pump out propaganda.

Mail on Sunday reporter David Rose (pictured right) says he has always believed that journalists should sue only as a last resort


Mail on Sunday reporter David Rose (pictured right) says he has always believed that journalists should sue only as a last resort

Of course, dear reader, I must now make clear none of the above is true. All of it is libellous and highly defamatory. For an investigative journalist who works hard to expose hidden facts, it is also potentially very damaging.

But it is only a small sample of allegations about me posted on blogs and Twitter after the article I wrote in last week's Mail on Sunday with my colleague Bob Woffinden on the dubious source of the BBC's false claim that Lord McAlpine was a pedophile.

If you Google my name with the term 'Mail on Sunday', you will find such material in substantial quantities, recycled and spread by Facebook 'sharing' and retweeted thousands of times.
Like Lord McAlpine, who is suing those who used Twitter to spread the lie that he was an abuser, if I resorted to law I would have an unanswerable case. I'm put off by the fact that most bloggers and tweeters who spread this putrid rubbish cloak themselves with anonymity and the likelihood is they would not be able to pay me any damages.

Moreover, in my 31 years as a reporter, I've always believed that journalists should sue only as a last resort: in general, I believe, our libel laws are too restrictive and act as a brake on serious journalistic inquiry. But I'm getting close to suing, and the reason is simple. The idea that the internet is 'like the Wild West' has become a cliche. In practice, it means anyone can write whatever they like about anyone else and expect to get away with it.

The consequences for journalists in established print and broadcasting media for getting a serious accusation wrong are, as the BBC has just discovered, potentially catastrophic. Never mind damages: legal costs in libel cases can run into millions, a situation made far worse by the arrival of 'no win, no fee' lawyers who represent libel claimants without any payment up-front.

Lord McAlpine was falsely accused of child abuse on the internet
Lord McAlpine was falsely accused of child abuse on the internet

It is simply inconceivable that The Mail on Sunday's Editor or the lawyers who advise him would allow publication of an item that accused a living person of being a paedophile, or even a cheerleader for paedophiles, without the strongest possible evidence. He would regard it as essential to make sure the claim had been put to the individual, and his response was published.

The Press Complaints Commission has, in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal and the Leveson Inquiry, come to be portrayed as toothless and feeble. The reality is that any journalist who takes their work seriously will go to great lengths to avoid an adverse Commission finding. We know we may have to spend hours preparing and submitting documents to defend our work.

But on the internet no such sanctions apply. If, like me, you happen to be a reporter who reveals inconvenient truths, not just about false allegations of paedophilia but issues such as climate change, it's open season. I've always believed that if the media pack is headed in one direction, the real story may well lie in the other. Over the years, this principle has helped me land some memorable scoops. It has also made me some vicious enemies, and they now have a ready means of striking back.

It's interesting to note that some of the nastiest internet claims about me were first made on the website run by David Icke, who thinks the world is controlled by a 'brotherhood' elite descended from reptiles from the planet Draco.

Reasoned debate and careful evaluation of the facts do not belong in Twitterland. In their place are hatred, hyperbole, and demonstrably baseless personal attacks.

Does it matter? I used to think not. Surely, I mused, everyone knows you can't believe much of what  you read on the internet. But as the Arab Spring demonstrated, social media have become a powerful, all-pervasive force, capable of triggering far-reaching change.

At the same time, the derided 'mainstream' media are under huge commercial pressure, the product of recession and deeper technological shifts. There is a real risk that many bona fide news organisations that have the resources and will to invest in real reporting will ultimately cease to exist.
If so, what will fill the gap? Who will have time and money to dig out awkward facts? We hear a lot about 'citizen journalists'. Their emergence has, in some cases, been positive: the brutal attack by a police officer which killed Ian Tomlinson during the G20 protests would never have come to light without the bystander who filmed it on his mobile phone.
But the bloggers who called me a lying protector of paedophiles are citizen journalists too, while at least one supposedly 'respectable' news and comment website also published a highly misleading attack. Is this the new norm of debate?

Meanwhile, Lord Justice Leveson is about to produce his long-awaited report on newspaper ethics, amid leaks and warnings that he will recommend a range of new  press restrictions backed by legal statute. But not, it seems, for the internet, as The Mail on Sunday disclosed last week.
It is just possible that the BBC McAlpine fiasco and Twitter's role in it may make m'lud think again. But as things stand, he is apparently about to propose draconian curbs on those who struggle to investigate professionally, while giving a free pass to those who undermine their efforts with lies and slander.
This will have consequences. Some form of licensing for reporters and newspapers, ultimately controlled by the State, would amount to a profound setback to freedom of speech, of the kind that matters most – the freedom to champion unpopular causes and challenge established orthodoxies. Yet the digital detractors who play to the bloggers' gallery, casually spreading their own fabricated universe to anyone who wants to 'follow' them, would be free to continue as before.

This doesn't amount merely to a further coarsening of the tenor of public discourse, or the ultimate repudiation of the dictum 'facts are sacred, comment is free'. It means we are heading for a situation in which bogus claims that fit a certain view will simply take precedence over reality.
It's interesting to note that some of the nastiest internet claims about me were first made on the website run by David Icke, who thinks the world is controlled by a 'brotherhood' elite descended from reptiles from the planet Draco.
If you want to believe that, then you're free to believe what you like about me. But please allow me a riposte. The stuff put out by Icke and others isn't just vile – it's bonkers.

 "WILL DEPT/SUPT MICK GRADWELL TURN UP"


With the passing of the Committee of Inquiry ("COI")  we again turn our attention to the Senior Investigating Officer ("SIO") Mick Gradwell.  SIO Gradwell was the lead investigator of "Operation Rectangle" the investigation into Child Abuse within the Jersey Care System between September 2008 and September 2009.  Gradwell was leaking information to Daily Mail Journalist David Rose during a live investigation. Will Gradwell be giving evidence at the COI? Will he be asked to explain his actions? 


I have been following the news from the UK.

Ex-City of London police officer arrested over alleged leak to journalists.

Arrest, which does not involve allegations of payment, follows IPCC investigation based on information from Operation Elveden


Josh Halliday
guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 5 March 2013 16.53 GMT

A former City of London police officer has been arrested by IPCC investigators over alleged leaking to journalists.

A former senior City of London police officer has been arrested on suspicion of passing information to journalists without payment, the police watchdog has said.

The former officer, a 52-year-old man, was held at his home in south-west London on Tuesday.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission, which carried out the arrest, said there was no indication that the former officer received any money in exchange for the alleged leak.

He is one of four former or serving officers arrested over the alleged passing of information to the media, where no money was involved.

The IPCC said Tuesday's arrest was prompted by evidence gathered during the investigation into another City of London officer, who was held and released on bail in June last year.

The watchdog said the arrest also followed further evidence obtained by Scotland Yard's Operation Elveden, the investigation into alleged payments from journalists to police and other public officials.

The IPCC added in a statement: "He was arrested at his home in south-west London and is being questioned by IPCC investigators at a police station nearby. Investigators have conducted a search of his home and have seized a number of items."

The name and rank of the man, who the IPCC described as a "former senior City of London police officer", was not disclosed.

His arrest comes shortly after that of Chief Superintendent Andy Rowell, the borough commander in Ealing, west London, who was arrested by the Metropolitan police in February over the suspected release of confidential information without alleged payment.

The IPCC has launched two independent investigations into alleged misconduct by police officers, linked to Operation Elveden. On Tuesday, the watchdog said it had received 18 individual referrals from the Metropolitan police and other forces in relation to alleged misconduct by officers. End

 The above  story jumped out at me. Let us also look at what the Minister for Home Affairs, Senator, Ian Le Marquand, said about this when asked in the States of Jersey. 

Dept/Supt Mick Gradwell refused to give evidence to a Home Affairs Sub Panel regarding his actions. The review findings can be read here:
The Jersey authorities didn't seem to bothered with the actions of SIO Gradwell yet they were prepared to try and nail Lenny Harper with leaking to the News of the World:

These are  recordings of me giving evidence to the Home Affairs Sub Panel regarding the Financial Management of Operation Rectangle and other issues. These recordings were made in July 17th 2011. The Culture of Concealment has been alive and kicking fro a very long time in Jersey. It has taken the members of the public armed with the internet to expose this culture. 


David Rose and Mick Gradwell are mentioned in part 2.

Will Mick Gradwell show up?????

THE COMMITTEE OF INQUIRY – PASSED BY THE STATES OF JERSEY












"SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG"



THE COMMITTEE OF ENQUIRY



PASSED TODAY IN THE STATES OF JERSEY - 43-0


A QUICK POSTING


As we set off this morning  to the States of Jersey in order to listen to the debate into the terms of reference for the upcoming Committee of Inquiry into decades long child abuse in the Jersey Care System we at Team Voice were feeling the familiar emotion of here we go again. That said we have experienced a surreal episode never experienced before in any states sitting that we have attended.  I will try and put into words what we, and interested parties that we spoke to, felt during this historic debate. 

Where to begin. We all gathered outside awaiting the time for the debate to begin. There was talk about the amendments, would they be adopted, would the states back a full committee of inquiry, would years of campaigning pay off? This has been a struggle for all concerned not least the abuse survivors themselves.  The debate began and immediately you could sense an atmosphere that has not been felt before in the chamber as far as I'm aware this was to set the scene for the debate that followed. Yes, there were inevitable questions of money from some members concerning the cost of the inquiry but these speeches were lost in the atmosphere of the day. We don't know how all the individual states members felt about this as so few members spoke but I would say that for the first time since becoming Chief Minister, Ian Gorst gained a little respect from Team Voice in that it appeared that he wanted to do the right thing in the face of opposition within his own ranks. The Chief Minister looked to hold the respect of the entire house, which was evident when he came back after lunch and accepted Deputy Tadier's amendment which too was voted in unanimously 39-0.

After the expectance  of Deputy Tadier's amendment the main debate was looking good for all those that have campaigned hard for a robust and fit for purpose committee of inquiry. This as expected came to fruition. I have to mention the passionate and emotional speech of Senator, Francis Le Gresley who we must remember had brought proposition P19/2010 to the states when they decided that we didn't require a committee of enquiry. His speech touched us all. It came from the heart. I believe that he felt like we all did and that this was the time to get it right and do it now. We are talking about real people who have suffered horrific abuse at the hands of pedophile's and care workers whilst in the care of the States of Jersey. He set the tone and from that moment on the battle was surely won. 

When the vote was read out and the committee of inquiry was passed it was an incredible feeling. The hard work had paid off. We can't thank everyone who worked behind the scenes enough. You know who you are. This was about not giving up. This was about sticking to our guns. This was about team work.  If you stick together and believe in what you are doing and have the truth and right on your side you can achieve what some people say is the impossible. 


We will not get complacent. This is a box ticked. We move on. The job is not done yet. 


We do feel that a weight has been lifted from our shoulders. Not a day has passed when we have not thought about the committee of inquiry and the victims and survivors of abuse.


Today was a victory for the abuse survivors, campaigners and the states of jersey as a whole.
