As criminal elite Tory VIPaedophiles roam our streets unprosecuted
One man close to the centre of it all explains 
how the British royal family are key players in the criminal cover-up.
Heath, Savile & Haut De La Garenne children's 
home, known locally as 'Colditz'.

Jersey’s former health minister, Stuart Syvret, 
who backed the victims and police in the 2008 
investigation, was also sacked. He was imprisoned 
last year for publicising a serious allegation on 
another, unrelated matter which, for legal reasons, cannot be described.

Syvret told the Telegraph: “Jimmy Savile abused 
children in Jersey. I believed his victims. Just 
as I believe the two people who told me of child 
abuse by another TV personality [this week 
confirmed as Brambell] on Jersey from the 
Seventies. Just as I believed those who told me 
that the authorities of the day had ignored their 
complaints of years of abuse by others in 
Jersey’s children’s homes. Savile is dead, so why 
must we dig into the sorry and wretched details? 
Because the crucial feature of this case is not 
so much the individual crimes, as bad as they 
are, and as damaging for the victims; it is, 
instead, what I call the 'culture of cover up’.”

As a result of the fallout from the investigation 
into Haut de la Garenne, the public was left 
believing that Harper and his team had 
over-reacted to the abuse allegations. Yet three 
people have since been convicted of abuse as a 
result of the inquiry, and to date compensation 
has been agreed for over 100 victims, with many 
more civil cases pending. Police had allegations 
against 150 individuals, many never adequately 
investigated – including Savile. There are at 
least four known victims of Savile from Jersey, 
and at least one disclosed their abuse to police 
in 2008, yet it is only now that their claims are being considered seriously.

Jersey Police have confirmed that one victim made 
accusations against Savile in 2008. But, for 
reasons that are still unclear, it is thought the 
allegations were not typed up into the statements 
seen by senior officers. It is believed that 
Savile denied ever having been to Haut de la 
Garenne and threatened to sue a newspaper for 
claiming that he visited the home.

Although the Metropolitan Police are 
co-ordinating inquiries across Britain into 
Savile’s alleged crimes, it is individual forces 
that are expected to examine them in detail. 
Carrie Modral says few of the victims trust 
Jersey’s police to do so. “That window of 
opportunity closed when the Jersey establishment 
got rid of the good cops,” she says.

It was a member of the Jersey Care Leavers’ 
Association who told police in 2008 that she was 
sexually abused at Haut de la Garenne by Savile. 
“The news about Savile has brought it all back, 
she is in great distress,” says Modral. “Savile 
visited regularly, not just Haut de la Garenne 
but other children’s homes on the island. He 
wasn’t the only visitor. The victim has named 
another household name who visited the home with Savile.”

She added: “I can tell you that two staff members 
who abused her at another home have been 
imprisoned, and the authorities have agreed 
financial compensation for her. But another man 
in a position of authority who regularly visited 
Haut de la Garenne and abused her there is still 
free and now employed in a responsible position by the state.”

Lenny Harper has confirmed to the Telegraph that 
he arrested this man for allegedly raping two 
other children at the home: “I gave a lot of 
information to the authorities about him, but 
he’s still employed by them in a senior 
position,” Harper says. “There were two solid 
allegations of rape against him that would have 
been proceeded with if it was in the UK. There 
was similar fact evidence. But Jersey’s Attorney General ruled that it was not.

“When we started the dig this man turned up and 
demanded access to the site. He allegedly wanted 
to get some stuff he’d left there years before. 
Yet this man’s name aroused more fear in the 
victims than any other in the inquiry.”

Ms Modral agreed: “He was no holds barred. And I 
have been told he made it clear he had friends 
and felt he would be protected. If he goes down 
he will bring down the government [in Jersey], 
because of what he knows about other people. The 
press needs now to look at all the other big name visitors to the home.”

What Savile did to the victim was “horrible, but 
small beer” compared to what others did to her, 
says Modral. “Savile put her on his knee and got 
his hand up her skirt. Then he tried to touch her 
little sister, and she pulled her away when he 
started to cuddle her. She was already being 
abused at Haut de la Garenne by staff, so she 
knew what he would do. Imagine being so young 
yourself and trying to save your little sister. They were 11 and nine.”

Modral says she met Savile when he visited a 
youth club on the island. “It’s ridiculous that 
he said he was never here. He was always coming 
to the island to open charity walks, and [visit] 
the children’s home and children would go [to see 
him]. I didn’t like the man, I stayed well away, 
I found him frightening, just the look of him.”

Possible links are emerging between abuse in 
Jersey children’s homes and the earlier notorious 
Islington children’s homes paedophile ring. A key 
figure in the ring, Islington’s deputy children’s 
homes superintendent Nicholas Rabet, came from 
Jersey. He had worked there in childcare, and 
regularly took children from the north London 
council’s homes on camping trips to the island.

Rabet fled Britain after the press exposed him, 
but was charged in Thailand in 2006 with abusing 
30 boys there, the youngest six. He killed 
himself before he could be tried. His ally, Neil 
Hocquart, killed himself in custody in Ely, 
Cambridgeshire, in 1991, after being found with 
hundreds of paedophile videos. He had grown up in 
care in Norfolk and was taken to Guernsey, where 
he became the “cabin boy” of a sea captain, 
before returning to Britain to recruit children 
for the paedophile ring. Karin Ward, who featured 
in the ITV documentary about Savile that sparked 
the current inquiries, has described being abused 
by the star during a camping trip to Jersey from her Norfolk children’s home.

The former Jersey Chief Officer Graham Power says 
the fact that more than 100 victims on Jersey 
have now received out-of-court settlements and a 
significant number of civil cases are still 
pending illustrates the scale of the abuse. He 
says he understands why victims mistrust the 
local force to investigate the Savile 
allegations: “The scale of abuse that occurred in 
this small community was so great that it seems 
to be beyond doubt that persons in authority must 
have known something of what was taking place, 
and, from what we know so far, they appear to 
have done nothing to protect the children who 
were being abused in establishments operated by 
their own government. This is a matter which 
merits honest and independent examination.”

Alan Collins, a solicitor with Pannone, a legal 
firm specialising in abuse cases that is 
representing 58 of the victims, says initially 
all the focus was on Haut de la Garenne, its 
workers and management. “Jimmy Savile was a 
sideshow. I honestly couldn’t say how many have 
named Savile. But there were several people who 
named him, it was plural, not singular. All the 
allegations need to be looked at now en masse for 
similar fact evidence, because now we are seeing 
a bigger jigsaw. Each individual complaint makes 
more sense now. Savile is dead but others who abused them are not.”

The Attorney General, William Bailhache, issued a 
statement in June 2009 stating that two historic 
abuse investigations were dropped because of a 
lack of evidence. “Cases of this nature are often 
difficult. There is rarely any independent 
evidence, and often the cases come down to being 
the word of one person against another
decision not to bring criminal proceedings does 
not necessarily mean that those who have made 
complaints are not believed. A decision not to 
prosecute means only that the Attorney General, 
having fully considered all of the available 
evidence and other information, has decided that 
an acquittal is more likely than a conviction.”
