Child abuse rings - Haringey, Islington, Jersey and beyond
Eileen Fairweather, in the Mail on Sunday, has linked Haringey to Islington and Jersey ('I have known about Jersey paedophiles for 15 years,' says award-winning journalist.)
The Haringey boy, from Labour-run Haringey in London, was tortured to death by a satanist.
On 16 November 2008, the Mail on Sunday tells us How a close male relative of Baby P is linked to a big paedophile ring.
This child-abuse ring operated in Labour-run Islington, the part of London where Tony Blair once lived.
Reportedly, the ring supplied boys to top people.
(This child abuse ring, reportedly, has links to the child abuse in Jersey, which in turn, reportedly, has links to the Dutroux affair and the security services)
The close male relative of Baby P reportedly recruited boys from children's homes in Islington for the child-abuse ring, according to a secret report seen by The Mail on Sunday.
In the early 1990s, the relative, as a boy, was put in a children's home, in Labour-run Islington, in London.
All 12 of the children's homes in Islington were being used by the child-abuse ring, which reportedly had links to top people.
This ring included three pimps called Alan, John and George.
Reportedly, the relative, then aged 13, was persuaded, by money, drugs and threats, to supply the pimps with young boys.
The relative tried to blow the whistle.
Reportedly, the relative told social workers the names of boys who were being ferried from the children's homes to various parts of London (Manor Park, Tottenham, Soho and Westminster) to ‘be buggered by old men’.
Reportedly, none of the men were put under surveillance or questioned.

Whistleblowing Social worker Neville Mighty, who had received death threats, named the relative in a report.
Neville Mighty contacted Islington’s then director of children’s services, Lyn Cusack, who is married to a senior policeman.
In June 1992, Mighty was sacked.
Liz Davies, the senior Islington social worker who encouraged Mighty to go public, said:
'We got too close. There were too many powerful people involved.
'Child sex, pornography and sadism are extremely lucrative industries.'
In 1994, an independent report criticised the failure of police and social workers to help the relative.

On 2 March 2008, Eileen Fairweather at the The Mail on Sunday had an excellent news story entitled 'I have known about Jersey paedophiles for 15 years,' says award-winning journalist.
Eileen Fairweather described the links between child abuse in Islington in London and child abuse on the islands of Jersey and Guernsey. She also suggests possible cover-ups by top police and politicians.
According to the Mail on Sunday article:
1. About 15 years ago, Detective Constable Peter Cook uncovered a child sex ring, with victims in both Britain and Jersey.
Cook's police bosses barred Cook from alerting police abuse specialists in London. Inquiries by junior detectives were closed down by senior police officers.
The child abuse ring members included an aristocrat, clerics and a social services chief. Their friends included senior police officers.
Cook managed to meet people at the National Criminal-Intelligence Squad. Little happened.
2. In February 2008, 'a child's remains' were found at a former children's home on Jersey.
More than 200 children who lived at Haut de la Garenne have described sexual and physical torture dating back to the Sixties.
3. There are the links between the child abuse at care homes in Islington, North London, and the child abuse on Jersey.
14-year-old Jason Swift, killed in 1985 by a paedophile gang, is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street home.
Two sources claimed this.
Every one of Islington's 12 care homes included staff who were paedophiles, child pornographers or pimps.
Police secretly confirmed that several Islington workers were 'major operators in the supply of children for abuse and pornography'.
Islington children were taken to Jersey 'on unofficial visits'.
Government Minister Margaret Hodge, then council leader in Islington, denounced "gutter journalists" who supposedly bribed children to lie about abuse.
(The Right Honourable Margaret Eve, Lady Hodge, MBE (née Margaret Oppenheimer; born September 1944, Cairo) is a British politician and Labour Party Member of Parliament for Barking. She was the first Minister for Children appointed in a newly created post within the Department for Education and Skills in 2001 . She is presently a Minister of State in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.)
5. Jersey social worker Simon Bellwood was sacked in 2007 after speaking out.
Jersey health minister Stuart Syvret was sacked after publicising a suppressed report into abuse allegations.
6. In June 1991, police in Cambridgeshire raided the home of Neil Hocquart who abused children in Britain and Guernsey.
Hocquart, along with a social worker from Jersey, supplied child pornography to a huge sex ring.
Hocquart, nee Foster, was abused while in care in Norfolk and was eventually 'befriended' by Captain H. Hocquart of Vale, in Guernsey.
Cambridgeshire police and a Scotland Yard squad raided Neil Hocquart's Swaffham Manor home in June 1991.
At nearby Ely they found his friend, Walter Clack, who was also reportedly involved with child pornography.
Police did not get a chance to properly interview these men. Hocquart died suddenly and Clack 'escaped with a £5,000 fine'.
Scotland Yard detectives related that they found at least "two or three" wills of older men who died of apparent heart attacks shortly after leaving everything to Neil Hocquart.
These deaths were never investigated.
7. Nicholas John Rabet, born on Jersey, was a friend of Hocquart's. Rabet became a childcare worker on Jersey.
Rabet became a key supplier of children from Islington's care homes to paedophile rings.
Rabet and a colleague took children on trips to Jersey.
'Allegations mounted but nothing was done'.
Rabet befriended the widow of an American oil millionaire. This lady died after writing her will in Rabet's favour. Rabet inherited a property in Sussex, where he opened a children's activity centre. Children in Islington's care were regularly invited to stay there.
Hocquart and Walter Clack became "volunteers" at this activity centre.
Hocquart befriended one young boy called Shane (not his real name) who stayed at an islington care home.
Sussex police raided Rabet's children's centre and then contacted Shane, at his Islington children's home. Shane confirmed months of 'abuse'. Attempts to investigate further 'were thwarted by Islington Council'.
Islington 'falsely told Sussex officers it had no file material on Rabet or his alleged victim'.
The independent White inquiry into the abuse in Islington children's homes found that "at assistant director level . . . many confidential files were destroyed by mistake, although there is no evidence of conspiracy."
During the Rabet investigation, Islington refused to interview any other children in care or help Sussex police identify other children in Rabet's photos.
Police decided not to prosecute.
Shane told journalist Eileen Fairweather: "This goes right to the top. You have no idea how big this is."
Fairweather writes: "Third World police... succeeded where Britain's finest in Cambridgeshire, Sussex, London and Jersey had failed."
Rabet was arrested in Thailand in 2006 and charged with abusing 30 boys, some as young as six. Thai police believed he had abused at least 300.
Rabat was never tried. He died suddenly on 12 May 2006.
8. Two other Jersey-born social workers also worked in Islington.
One arranged sailing trips to Guernsey; the other sent children to Rabet's centre. Both were accused of abuse.
9. When Detective Constable Cook travelled to Guernsey, he met two brothers whom Hocquart 'delivered to a high-ranking, respected local man to rape'.
Reportedly no action was taken by senior police.
In 1985, 14-year-old Jason Swift was killed by a child-abuse gang.
Jason is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street children's home. (Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)
Sidney Cooke, Leslie Bailey, Robert Oliver, and Lennie Smith, were imprisoned in 1989 for the manslaughter of Jason Swift.
Cooke and his gang had sexually tortured and prostituted a number of boys.
The gang is believed to have killed at least nine children.
Cooke was sentenced to 19 years in prison.
In 1998, Cooke was let out of prison eight years early.
There have been allegations that very powerful people have been involved in a child-abuse ring connected to Islington children's homes. ( Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)
In 1982 Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer) became Islington council leader.
She became a close friend of Tony Blair, who lived in Islington, a few doors away from Hodge.
In February 1990 Liz Davies and David Cofie, senior social workers, discovered evidence of sex abuse of children and reported it to a residents' meeting attended by Mrs Hodge.
In May 1990 Mr Cofie and Ms Davies were told by Lyn Cusack, assistant director of social services, to stop interviewing children about the abuse claims.
On 1 May 1997 Tony Blair moved from Islington to Downing Street.
In June 2003 Mrs Hodge was made minister for Children. (Another minister under fire: call for Hodge to quit over child ...)The Independent, 9 March 2008, has an article on missing children (Our children are missing: Most vulnerable youngsters are targeted) which tells us the following:
Sarah Benford, 14, disappeared from Welford House children's home in Northampton in April 2000.
She is still missing.
The UK's Police National Missing Persons Bureau has 1,418 "open cases" of missing children.
According to Police figures more than 100 children who should be in care have been missing for at least four years.
Many children who go missing are not reported to the police.
Member of parliament Helen Southworth says: "All figures on children missing from anywhere are estimates because, astonishingly, there is no requirement for data to be recorded or collected nationally."
Almost 1,000 children went missing from UK residential and foster care in 2007.
The number that went missing from care increased from 570 in 1997 to 950 in 2007.
The boy, known as Baby P, suffered bruising from beatings. (scars of on Baby P's face were hidden with smeared chocolate)
The boy died in a blood-spattered cot in Haringey, London, in 2007.
A post mortem showed the boy had a broken back and eight broken ribs
He had spent much of his life being treated as a punchbag.
Gordon Brown's Labour Government ignored a whistleblower's plea for an investigation into Haringey Council's social services department six months before the boy died.
The whistleblower wrote: "Child abusers are not being tackled."
Haringey Council is run by Labour, Gordon Brown's party.
On the boy's final day alive, police told his mother that they would take no further action over suspicions she had assaulted him.
The boy's injuries
The killer of the boy had a fascination for Nazi memorabilia.
When he and the lodger clicked their fingers the boy would touch his forehead on the floor in fear of another beating.

In short, the chief whip would cover up any scandal, even if it involved “small boys”, child sexual abuse, child rape, whatever you want to call it. They wouldn’t report the crime to the police, although they may use their contacts with the police to make sure to make sure the matter went no further. This means that a paedophile would be the ideal candidate for promotion within the party, easily blackmailed and bought, loyalty and discretion guaranteed.
An example of how the dirt book may have been used is the case of Sir Peter Morrison, who was Conservative MP for Chester from 1974-1992, as well as being Margaret Thatcher’s Parliamentary Private Secretary. Morrison has been linked to a notorious paedophile ring that sexually abused children in North Wales care homes. Chris House, who worked as reporter for the Daily Mirror, twice received tip-offs about Morrison being caught abusing underage boys which resulted in just a police caution, but libel threats stopped the newspaper from running the story. Peter Connew, the former editor of the Sunday Mirror, said “such was the hush-up that nobody could get hold of a log of the arrest”.
Edwina Currie, who was a Conservative MP at the time, said “Peter Morrison has become the PM’s PPS. Now he’s what they call ‘a noted pederast’,’ with a liking for young boys; he admitted as much to Norman Tebbitt when he became deputy chairman of the party, but added, ‘However, I’m very discreet’ – and he must be!”
It seems possible that Morrison was given the job of PPS precisely because he was a paedophile; the party had ‘dirt’ on him so they could rely on his loyalty. Morrison was an alcoholic, famously incompetent, and often found asleep at his desk, so I can’t think of any other reasons for his promotion to PPS. Not a thought was given to the poor children who he abused, and nobody in his party went to the police to stop him committing these crimes. Edwina Currie was quite happy to save this ‘gossip’ about child rape to boost her book sales.
