Lord Janner Will Likely Not Be Arrested

“Sources confirmed the peer would not be questioned after two doctors examined him and concluded he was unfit.”

Bent or Magic ? Lord Janner with Uri Geller.

Lord Janner with Uri Geller.

A Labour peer facing more than 20 allegations of historical child abuse looks set to avoid prosecution after doctors said he was unfit to be quizzed because he has dementia.

The member of the House of Lords will not be interviewed or arrested by police investigating the alleged sexual assaults – which include claims of rape – on vulnerable boys in children’s homes.

One man said he was aged seven when the politician visited his care home and entertained him and the other youngsters there with magic tricks.

The suspect, who was the local MP at the time, then allegedly took him aside and sexually assaulted him.

    You can imagine when the doctor passed the note:

    • gw

      Has not attended HoL this year. Attended a rough average of a dozen times per month last year excluding the summer period.

    According to Hansard, he spoke eight times in the Lords during the 2012-13 session. The last time was on 7 February 2013.

    Sounds like an Ernest Saunders type case to me:
    ‘Ernest Walter Saunders (born 21 October 1935) is a former British business manager, best known as one of the “Guinness Four”, a group of businessmen who attempted fraudulently to manipulate the share price of the Guinness company. He was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment, but released after 10 months as he was believed to be suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, which is incurable. He subsequently made a full recovery.[1]’

    victims can still go the civil court route

  6. colin

    This is wrong so wrong if proved he did the crime he should pay this is nothing but a loophole others may follow show no mercy he never by all accounts

  7. colin

    Sorry but I need to reblog on this subject. If this man is so I’ll and poorly why does he retain an office in the house of commons ,the one police raided not so long ago surely they would have known about his condition before searching his office ,is this the cover up starting my heart felt sorrow goes to all victims ,I really have tears in my eyes now so God knows how they feel May God bless them

    Well, I dunno: some people do get dementia, you know. I suggest spelling out the claims openly and clearly: if he’s got dmentia, he won’t be able to sue. The truth will out.

    Does he remain a member of the House of Lords if he has dementia ?

    I know it’s tangential to the issue of child abuse, but if the answer is ‘yes’ it does say something about how we are governed.

    • chappersbrum

      He would. He’s a life peer and would remain a member of the House of Lords until his death.

    • alanbstardmp

      No, as we’ve seen in the past, person suffering from dimentia past a certain point of being able to understand cannot be charged. That goes for anyone

      My worry is he is still able to go to trial and we’ll get a lie about how dimented he is and unfit to defend himself

      No case to answer

    Personally, I’d rather be banged up (even for a crime I didn’t do) than have dementia. It is a terrible disease and no-one ever recovers from it. Very often, dementia sufferers become like vulnerable toddlers again, are often institutionalised and are often taken advantage of – not only financially, but also sexually. I believe that elder abuse is an issue that is as under-reported in this day and age as child abuse once was.

    • alanbstardmp

      correct Becky. A sufferer requires honest people around to defend their interests if they have no family

  11. Just feel Very Sad and Lost for WORDS……

  12. Well if he’s that mental then he can’t instruct a lawyer to sue people calling him out on what he is.

    • Becky

      Just because you don’t like this particular guy doesn’t mean that you should insult the millions of mostly completely innocent people who are suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s by dismissing them as “mental”. That makes you just as bad.

  13. nuggy

    funny none of these celebrity were deemed unfit.

  14. Isis Marks

    If he has dementia, he should have a legal guardian who could sue on his behalf, although unlikely, as truth is a defence to defamation.

    Claimants should take civil proceedings, it can be a good way to collate evidence for a subsequent criminal prosecution. I think Alison Millar, solicitor is taking multiple victim claims.

    the Chosen are never held responsible for their actions

  16. Janner would only be charged with serious and controversial charges if
    A) There existed a 200% chance of conviction .
    B) there existed no possibility of avoiding charging him.

    Janner’s links to Zionism and holocaust memorialisation are infinitely more important than Janner the individual.

    The Chingford skin’ead all but admitted the possibility of cover ups to protect the Institution of Parliament.
    The Institutions of Zionism and Holocaust memorialisation are considered to be far more important than the British Parliament, the need to protect these institutions being proportionately greater.

    • Frank

      What an anti-Semitic prat you are. So no Christians are ever involved in cover-ups?

      • A master of the non sequitur Frank, I didn’t say that no Christians are involved did I ?

        I have no doubt that Christians and Jews and Muslims and other faiths as well as those of no faith are involved.

        Learn to read and comprehend, you may be Frank by name but alas not by nature.

      • Frank

        Sorry, I obviously misunderstood – I realise now that you must be saying Zionism and ‘holocaust memorialisation’ are equally ‘protected’ by Christians and Muslims etc. Silly me for inferring that you, and alanbstardmp, were just using Janner’s Judaism as another thing to hold against him.

      • alanbstardmp

        yes, those covering up for Janner are Christian. You really missed the point didn’t you. Sabre is right, Janner is a senior chosen one and they are never arrested for anything. Their influence on British is horrific as seen in this dispatches programme

      • Frank

        You prove my point. You are an anti-Semite. You probably also think the Duke of Edinburgh is a closet Jew, 9/11 was a Jewish conspiracy and there were Jews on the grassy knoll.

      • alanbstardmp

        anti semite or not, Janner won’t be touched for that reaso

  17. pons

    Ah, Frank, obviously a closet Frankist, but two out of three is not bad for a wacko.

    • Frank

      No idea what you’re talking about. I don’t support Janner or any other child abuser, or think they should escape the law by pleading illness, but I dislike the way some people are letting their anti-Semitism cloud the matter.
