Child abuser Lord Greville Janner of Braunstone has died only 9 months after requesting in writing that he continue to sit in the House of Lords. He had spent the last 25 years avoiding justice for the crimes he committed against young boys and has died just four months before a ‘trial of the facts’ which was set to conclusively demonstrate that Greville Janner was a sick child abusing bastard.
Sources familiar with the ‘trial of the facts’ had told The Needle that about 100 witnesses were due to give evidence against Janner and that the evidence was overwhelming.
Questions will now be asked about whether Leicestershire police and the CPS conspired to protect Janner by failing to prosecute him earlier and whether the delay as a consequence of the DPP Alison Saunders original decision not to prosecute Janner earlier this year allowed Janner to escape justice one last time.
Greville Janner was scum. Those that protected him are scum, and those who are friends of his and wish to eulogise his passing are also scum.
Only Janner’s victims deserve sympathy.
Once again, the Establishment can breath a sigh of relief, knowing as they do so that the sick perverted crimes documented by the conclusive prosecution case against one of their own, will remain out of the press.
Lord Janner, the former Labour peer ruled unfit to stand trial over child sexual abuse allegations, has died.
He had been suffering from dementia and died peacefully at his home on Saturday aged 87, his family said.
The peer had been accused of 22 counts of sex offences against boys – allegations his family denied.
A “trial of the facts” set for April will no longer take place. A lawyer representing alleged victims said they had been denied justice.
Liz Dux, who represents six alleged victims, said: “This is devastating news for my clients. They have waited so long to see this case come before the courts, to be denied justice at the final hurdle is deeply frustrating.”
The Goddard inquiry, which is examining child sexual abuse claims, may now examine the allegations, the BBC’s Tom Symonds said.
It had set aside the case while it was being dealt with in the courts
