In 1989 I was in care at a home in South Wales and whilst there I and a boy called ‘Daniel’ were groomed and then sexually abused by a man who I’ll call ABG from Llandaff (Cardiff).
At the time the home found out what was going on and the police were brought in, I went to see a child psychologist but I was unable to talk about what had happened (was very scared,ashamed and felt responsible for not only my own abuse but of the other’s as well).
A couple of weeks later I was moved to a home 30 miles away and that was the last I had heard of the matter (just tried to forget and get on with life and after a while I had managed to repress these horrific memories) until the police contacted me in 2011 and said that someone had come forward and had made a compliant of abuse against ABG and would I like to be a witness and i said yes and I would also like to make a complaint myself as I had never done so.
The officer in charge (DC Dan Todd, Fairwater CID) then informed me that I could not make a complaint because I had already made one(this was news to me), he then went onto say that ABG had been charged with interfering with me and ‘Daniel’ as a child and was sentenced to 4 years at Cardiff crown court on 1991.
I then made a complaint to the IPCC to find out how the police could charge this guy without a statement from myself and they just put all the blame onto social services and there procedure would be to inform my parents/carers of any proceedings.
I then requested the documents from the planning meetings that were held on my behalf by social services and in them was a passage that had been recorded in the minutes
and it states.
After a joint police interview with john lent(social worker) and my self that the implication’s of homosexual activity with a man in Llandaff(George) and that the police were not intending to take any further action.
At the same time they were charging ABG with abusing me and ‘Daniel’.
The only reason I can think of why they would do this is that I wasn’t able to talk about my abuse so the police and social services thought they would simply discriminate against me
By the way, ‘Daniel’ was able to talk and so got all the support that he needed to recover from this horrible incident.
Wasn’t happy with the way the police had not only used my name to put this guy away once and now they wanted to use me again without offering me any explanation or apology for the abhorrent way in which I have been treated and so decided that I would not go to court as a witness and retract my statements unless I got the truth, first they begged me not to and then started to threaten me with a summons at which point I told them that if you summons me to court I will go to the press and tell them how you literally screwed me over in the past and how they wanted to do the same again, well they shat themselves and within an hour I was being included as a victim in the on going case.
I gave in and went to court and ABG was sentenced to eighteen years in prison(the length of sentence reflects what this man put us kids through.
A further complaint which was handled by the south Wales professional standards department(you would think with a name like that they would act professionally, well they do but that only covers cover-ups)
I presented my evidence and they did everything they could to not only discredit the evidence but to discredit me as a thirteen year old child
and I got the impression that the training in that guy was so strong and I think he truly believed that the police could never be responsible for something like this even when confronted with evidence that can not be denied.
He even went and questioned the social worker John , who made the statement but instead of asking him what the bloody hell is going on and why was he ok with branding me as a homosexual that was having some kind of affair with a paedo, no instead he asked if I was present at that meeting, now if he was looking at this case objectively he would understand that it would have been very inappropriate for me to be at a meeting where such adult themes were being discussed. And that leads me to believe that this guy is either incompetent or he is doing his best to make this “go away”
I lost it with him and I really had to hold back from punching the guy right on his pointy nose (dirty lying scumbag) and his name is DI Amhed of the South Wales professional standards dept, an absolute joke that guy.
Of course his findings were, ‘there was nothing wrong here’ and I should stop harassing the police
Nothing to see here, move along, move along
I had arranged before hand to record his excuses and will be taking that to the appeal and then onto the press to expose this guy for the fraud that he is
I am not very good a writing so please forgive any grammatical error’s
Where do I go from here, have approached the big newspapers but they really don’t want stories like this
so complaining about the “firm” is like banging my head against a big blue wall
No apology I even had to shout at a cop for five minutes before he got the fact that I have been discriminated against for not being able to talk about my abuse.
Welcome to Great Britain
I do not yet know what to do but thanks for reading
gojam note: because I am keen to seek justice for ‘Thompson’, and I’m working to that end, I’ve edited a few details from this account. Thompson did give me his full real name but we’ve agreed that it was not necessary to publish it.
