EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew SteeplesOur editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

Justice and Janner

The death of Lord Janner will not stop his alleged victims in their quest for justice and it should also result in Theresa May speaking up

 

Keith Vaz MP will now sleep a little more easily in the knowledge that questions over his support for the alleged paedophile Lord Janner will likely fade into obscurity with the Labour peer’s death yesterday.

 

Justice and Janner
The Rt. Hon. The Lord Janner of Braunstone, QC (1928 – 2015) has escaped justice for alleged sex offences in his death

 

Janner – who was due to face a trial of facts over 22 counts of sex offences against 9 children in April 2016 – “died peacefully in his sleep” at his north London home on Saturday. His family have requested “for their period of mourning to be respected”, but rightly six of his alleged victims have vowed to continue to fight on. On their behalf, their legal representative, Liz Dux of Slater & Gordon, commented:

 

“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”.

 

“Worse still is that so many opportunities to bring this matter to justice whilst he was well were missed”.

 

“All they have ever wanted is to give their evidence in court and have these very serious allegations tested and to be believed”.

 

She added that her clients would pursue civil claims against Janner’s estate but as he signed over his £2.2 million home to his children last year, it is unlikely that they will get anywhere near the £2.5 million figure that today’s Mail on Sunday suggests.

 

Janner’s death also leaves Home Secretary Theresa May and other politicians with a lot to answer for. The former MP was first accused in 1991 and then again in 2002, 2006 and 2013 and on that basis, one has to ask why his alleged crimes not properly investigated during his lifetime. If suggestions of a Savile-like “wait until he’s dead” cover-up are to be avoided, it is time for Mrs May to speak up and it is time that cases such as that of Sir Cliff Richard are dealt with whilst those involved are still alive and compos mentis.

  1. You are quite right. Cliff Richard should be either charged or cleared. The longer this rumbles on, the worse it gets. Victims and the falsely accused are the ones that suffer and Theresa May gets off scot free. It is disgraceful.

  2. He got away with it!!!!!!!!!! Surprise, bloody, surprise!!!!!!!!!! They only go after entertainers like Rolf Harris!!!!!!!! Politicians get away with it!!!!!

  3. Well like Rod says, surprise surprise, I can’t even be bothered to comment as there is no point. These perverts in high places will continue to get away with this untill somebody has the balls to say something, and I mean his colleges. How can he sign over his property to his family, only a year ago mind you, and not have that revoked. What a bloody joke when they have, Right Honorable before their names, makes me puke.
