Really good to read that Lord Janner has NOT been arrested.
Otherwise I’d be in contempt of court for writing this. Ho hum- ‘swings and roundabouts’
In 1991, after accusing LORD/MP Greville Janner of paedophilic behaviour with a teenager, Beck was arrested and charged with the sexual and physical abuse of children in his care over a thirteen-year period.
At his trial Beck stated that: – “One child has been buggered and abused for two solid years by Greville Janner“.
Immediately after this, Janner who just happens to be, ironically, a long time member of the boy scouts association, and Sir David Napley, his solicitor, went to Police headquarters in Leicester. Whereupon, the following statement was issued:
“We have advised Mr. Janner that he is prevented from making any statement at this stage”.
Shortly afterwards, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Alan Green, let it be known that “for lack of evidence”, Janner would not be prosecuted, even though P, who was just thirteen when he and Janner first met, was able to describe Janner‘s home, the hotel rooms they had shared, and Janner’s habits and person in detail.
The Director of Public Prosecutions, himself, was arrested for kerb-crawling in Kings Cross a little while later.<
The London home of Lord Janner has been searched as part of an inquiry into allegations of child abuse, Leicestershire Police has confirmed.
He has not been arrested and has not been interviewed under caution.
Leicestershire Police said it had “executed a search warrant at a property in Barnet, north London, as part of an ongoing criminal inquiry”.
Greville Janner was a Labour MP for 27 years, in Leicester North West and then Leicester West. He retired in 1997.
Cambridge graduate Lord Janner, a father of three, is a former president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
He is also chairman of the Holocaust Education Trust.
