We’re all sick to the back teeth of these fake criminal proceedings against public figures that are delayed just long enough for the accused person to die – aren’t we?
With apologies to Janner’s family, This Writer has no doubt at all that he was guilty of the crimes he was alleged to have committed.
I also think Leon Brittan committed the crimes that have been alleged against him.
If they had been innocent, then I believe any proceedings against them would have taken place and they would have been exonerated long before their deaths.
But they were members of the Establishment and as such, it seems, were above legal redress and could not be seen to be guilty.
Furthermore, there is a question mark hanging over the remarkable timeliness of their passing – in the face of proceedings against them.
Perhaps it is time someone came forward with an allegation against a public figure who is still relatively young and in good health.
Will that person suddenly turn out of have had a long-term illness and die as well?
That would be extremely suspicious.
Twelve former residents of children’s homes say they were abused by Lord Janner, a BBC investigation finds as criminal proceedings end.
The peer, who died before a court could examine claims of child abuse against him, regularly visited homes in Leicester in the 1970s and 1980s.
An ex-police officer says he reported suspicions about Lord Janner, a decade before police began a full inquiry.
Lord Janner, who had denied any abuse, died in December.
A “trial of the facts” has now been shelved by prosecutors.
A jury would have been asked to decide – without reaching a decision about whether he was guilty – if 22 alleged incidents of abuse from the 1960s to the 1980s had taken place.
Lord Janner’s family have said he is “entirely innocent” and a man of “great integrity and high repute”.
However, the BBC has traced and interviewed dozens of men and women who lived at children’s homes in Leicestershire in the 70s and 80s.
