What you are (hopefully) about to read is nothing short of "staggering" and gives an insightful look into, not only the disgraced and discredited Wiltshire Report, but how the Freedom Of Information Law is not worth the paper it is written on, well when it comes to the Wiltshire Constabulary anyway.
All this new "evidence" has come to light as a result of the Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny Sub Panel Review chaired by Deputy Trevor Pitman. The very same Review that has seen witnesses being "economical" with the truth (under oath). The very same review that Mick Gradwell has refused to give evidence to. The very same review that has been told of leaks to the media during an ongoing Child Abuse Enquiry by said Mick Gradwell (under oath). Leaks to the media by politicians and others during the "live" Child Abuse Enquiry (under oath) and guess what? Graham Power nor Lenny Harper nor any "Anti Establishment" Politician have been accused of leaking anything.
Is it any wonder that the Establishment will do anything they can to discredit this Review?
Over To Mr. Harper.
Voice For Children has asked me to compile a guest posting in order to draw together all that has happened in the four or five months in respect of BDO/Alto and the Wiltshire Police. I am very happy to do so.
3. This Report contains information that has been, and continues to be, held by Wiltshire Police for the purposes of an investigation which it has a duty to conduct and which ought not to be disclosed (under s.30 Freedom of Information Act 2000).
In the light of this I felt that it would not have been Wiltshire Police that released my statement but more likely the Jersey Home Affairs Minister. Three days earlier I had e-mailed Mr Le Marquand and asked him to release my Wiltshire Statement. He had refused. I have now e-mailed him several times asking who had told BDO not to interview me and also if he knew who had handed my witness statement to them. After first denying that he knew anything about the BDO Terms of Reference he changed his mind and admitted that he would have known. He denied knowledge of the leaking of my statement. He undertook to get back to me with a satisfactory explanation of events. I am still waiting.
Expected outcome: As in body of e mail.
Identity of Officer / member of staff: Chief Constable Brian Moore”
“I have had the opportunity of speaking with the investigating officers. To the best of their knowledge and belief they have not passed a copy of your statement to BDO Alto Limited. Unfortunately I am unable to confirm whether BDO are in possession of your statement to which they refer within their May 2010 report or an explanation as to how they came by possession. I assume that such knowledge will be in their own possession and may I suggest that you direct your enquiries to them. I appreciate that you have attempted to elicit a response from them beforehand”
