After #CSAinquiry failed to adduce several written statements by ex-police officers when they testified to Westminster hearings in March (unlike for other witnesses), I requested the statements.

But the inquiry refused to disclose this evidence.

It covered up... 1/7
Some five months later, and now that Carl Beech has been convicted, in effect, of making up his claims about #VIPaedophiles, #CSAinquiry has finally published this evidence about #VIPaedophile police probes of yesteryear and the associated cover-ups. 2/7
Look for yourself what these police witnesses said in their statements just released.

Edward Heath, Leon Brittan, Jeremy Thorpe, Cyril Smith all crop up: 3/7

What a blow!
At today's #NickTrial, prosecution summarised a video interview, maintaining that Lord Bramall told officers he did not know Greville Janner ...
However, a 2006 article in the Standard tells us that Bramall physically struck fellow peer Greville Janner in an incident in one of the rooms close to the Lord's chamber. The same incident is reported in Bramall's Wikipedia.

Bramall even went on to the press that the two were 'very old friends', and had corresponded since crossing swords.
Forgetful? Noddarf!

Day 5 of #NickTrial begins at Newcastle crown court. Prosecutor Tony Badenoch continues opening speech. Yesterday was taken up with prosecutor's opening speech, and he is about two-thirds the way through it.
Prosecutor tells #NickTrial that defendant refused to supply three journals in which he recorded sketches of abuse and venues. Jury will only see 20 pages that he supplied to Met. The journals were not found in any later police search, he adds.
