The focus of the ‘Battle’ has switched momentarily back to the Scottish front which is where for me at least this all-out WAR against child abuse & abusers and their protectors in public life began exactly 4 years ago, with the arrest in Aberdeen of Robert Green on 12 February 2010.
It was a wake-up call to many others up and down the land and I believe in the course of time it will be seen as a watershed moment in history.
Like the scores of people who bombarded Grampian Police with calls and complaints over that weekend, I was appalled that an honest, decent man standing up for the right of children and the disabled to be properly protected under the law could be arrested and incarcerated simply for demanding that alleged local paedophiles be investigated. He was even enrolled as an electoral candidate in Aberdeen standing on an anti-paedophilia ticket! Leaving very much still open the question as to whether this hauling him off the street and locking him up was an infringement of his constitutional rights/electoral law?
Of course it was the fact that he had dared to NAME NAMES that had got him into this fix but what impact might he have had if he had merely gone about saying ‘there is a group of paedophiles mainly based in the Ferryhill area of Aberdeen whom the police are failing to investigate, despite having the evidence that the abuse has taken place?’ The cover-up & whitewash would have continued – in fact, even with the names out in the open it is continuing! But at least all those people who claim to have been alarmed and distressed at being named have had a chance now to express that publicly and have the offender locked up, so justice of a kind has been done.
Or has justice for ‘Hollie’s Names’ been done, really? The cloud of of suspicion still hangs over them because as they confirmed at Robert’s trial in 2012 they were never investigated by the police/CLEARED regarding the allegations she made against them in 2000 and repeated to the police on 8th September 2009, this time with Robert listening in to every word of Hollie’s 3 ½ hour solo interview. He took rough notes of the interview then went home and wrote those up in neat and what happened? The police who raided his home on 13th February seized those notebooks and have not returned them…
The focus of this issue therefore swivels right back round onto the police. As I tell the ‘Hollie Names’ whenever I encounter them on the streets, YOU should be pressing as hard as we, Hollie’s supporters for Grampian Police/now Police Scotland to arrest Denis and Greg Mackie, the chief suspects, wherever they are in the world and return them to UK for questioning – this is the only way to really clear YOUR names as well as bringing closure in this sordid affair which rumbles on and on, with the complaints about it from all sides getting louder and louder.
With public anger growing over the spectacle of paedophiles in high places getting away with their crimes all over the UK the Hollie Greig affair threatens to cast a cloud over the wider scene in Scotland this year so I say to Salmond, McAskill, Mulholland and all those pressing for Scottish Independence, if you really want to secure that vote CLEAR UP THIS MESS – the Hollie Greig affair – NOW and for starters release Robert Green, a good man who has been doing whatever he can to protect children and the vulnerable. It really doesn’t look good he’s back inside a Scottish prison! And as for Rusty who through his 30-year Prisoners-of-Conscience work has campaigned for the unjustly incarcerated all over the world including Nelson Mandela, it doesn’t look good either that you are thinking to bang that brave man up as well.
As always Robert wants to thank all those standing by him who have once again called or tried to call Grampian Police (not so easy these days…) or Perth Prison or email his MP David Mowat and many thanks also to those who’ve already written to him or sent a card and you know him, he’ll do his best to answer you personally.
Please from now on check the story and latest events as they unfold on the resurrected Free Robert Green blog http://www.freerobertgreen.co.uk
I’ll be up in Aberdeen on Friday and again for the duration of Rusty’s trial next week so if anyone could possibly come along and help hold the FREE ROBERT GREEN banner or a JUSTICE FOR TIM RUSTIGE placard outside the Sheriff Court I’d be very grateful!
Best to all
USEFUL EMAIL ADDRESSES
3 E-Mail addresses for Alex Salmond MSP, The First Minister of Scotland (Probably best to send messages for Salmond to ALL 3 addresses.)
E-Mail Address for Kenny MacAskill MSP, Scotland’s Justice Secretary
Some of you have already taken the initiative but this latest arrest/imprisonment of Robert Green (2 weekends in the cells in February and April 2010 and 3 months March to May 2012 and now already 6 days in February 2014) always on the same issue, for standing up for children in Scotland to be protected against paedophiles, is something your MP needs to know about so please email him or her. My own MP Lynne Featherstone is on this mailing list and I know she’s on side and doing whatever she can locally especially in regard to Children’s so-called Services in notorious LB Haringey – thanks Lynne! So find out where your MP stands on child protection by asking him or her to press in the appropriate quarters for Robert Green to be released from HMP Perth and for the Hollie Greig issue to be properly investigated and cleared up. AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW HE OR SHE RESPONDS! Thank you.
A PROPOS PARLIAMENT – THAT LIST…
As I’ve said many times over, I doubt anything will really change for the better in our society & world until we flush paedophiles and their protectors & promoters out of public life. One of the first things that should happen in this regard is for the 1980s Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) list to be published which includes a number of parliamentarians still in post today. Might your MP be on it? If so, will you be voting for him or her in 2015?! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2562518/The-truth-Labour-apologists-paedophilia-Police-probe-child-sex-group-linked-party-officials-wake-Savile.html#addComment
