Vatic Note: These people below who support the Goddard inquiry are right, in that they have the power to force those higher ups to attend and be questioned. We have published numerous blogs on here, about pedophilia and child sexual abuse in Britain, and the cover ups that attended such accusations. We even published a David Icke expose on the issue.
Further, the ICC court has been investigating allegations against the Queen and her party of supporters and she has retaliated by trying to get rid of Kevin Arnette, the founder of the ICCC, and thus stop the inquiry into her time in Canada where missing Indigenous children disappeared from religious schools and were later found buried on the school house grounds, 10 years later. So far she has not succeeded. But likewise, she has not been investigated thoroughly either, since its a work still in progress.
So very high ups have a great deal of power and given their governing structure of a Monarchy, its a great deal more difficult than it would have been here in the states. That may not be true anymore, but at least it was a while back. We will watch and see who prevails in this battle for control and report back.
Kincora scandal: Abuse victim seeks Judicial Review over MI5 link to Belfast boys’ home

A victim of abuse at a notorious boys’
home in Northern Ireland will seek this week to challenge the conduct of
Whitehall’s ill-fated investigation into child abuse.
A former resident at the Kincora Boys’
Home in Belfast, supported by other victims, is applying for judicial
review into the decision to exclude the home from the London-based
inquiry, now chaired by Justice Lowell Goddard from New Zealand. At
stake is whether current and former members of MI5 can be forced to give
Widespread allegations of abuse of
residents – including claims that abuse was covered up and allowed to
continue unchecked for years because police and the British security
services were using the home to blackmail people – are the subject of a
separate inquiry in Northern Ireland, the Historical and Institutional
Abuse (HIA) inquiry, led by Sir Anthony Hart.
Critics of the HIA claim it lacks
sufficient powers to get to the heart of the scandal, and want Kincora
to be investigated by the Goddard inquiry. On Tuesday at the High Court
in Belfast, lawyers representing a Kincora victim, Gary Hoy, will
challenge the decision by the Secretary of State, Theresa Villiers, to
leave the Kincora investigation under the control of the HIA. The
lawyers want the decision judicially reviewed. The Government confirmed
last week that it will oppose the application.
Campaigners say Kincora should be
removed from the HIA and included in the Goddard inquiry because of the
purported links with London of some of those who abused boys, and
because, they say, the HIA will not be able to compel witnesses to
attend nor insist on seeing sensitive civil service documents.
Kincora has long cast a shadow over
both Northern Ireland and MI5. In 1981, three men were imprisoned for
between four and six years for a number of offences relating to
systematic sexual abuse of children over a period of years.
number of whistleblowers had attempted to call a halt to the abuse, but
it continued unabated, giving rise to claims that staff were being
protected by the security services. Last year, former MI5 officer Bryan
Gemmell told The Independent on Sunday that he had expressed concern but
was told by his boss in MI5 to keep his nose out of Kincora.
said that he had been asked by the same person if he thought a known
Protestant terrorist might be susceptible to being blackmailed over his
homosexuality “because they had film of him”. Former army press officer Colin Wallace also sought to raise the alarm, but went unheeded.
One Kincora victim, Clint Massey, told
The IoS recently: “In those days [the 1970s], there were loads of people
over from London. I have always assumed they were senior figures from
Whitehall. I certainly heard English accents…. I strongly believe it was
an entrapment operation [for the security services]. They hoped to get a
handle on the people who visited, to get them to work for them and
inform for them.”
Last week, Mr Massey gave evidence to
the Police Ombudsman, who is investigating the failure of successive
police inquiries to get to the truth. Yesterday he said: “The HIA
inquiry needs to be able to summon the senior civil servants. When
Whitehall says jump, they jump. But if it’s based here in Northern
Ireland, it won’t have the authority.” This view was backed by the
Parliamentary Home Affairs Committee on Friday.
HIA inquiry chairman Sir Anthony Hart
has sought to reassure critics that his inquiry has sufficient powers.
It has sought details of all Kincora-related files held by all UK
government departments and agencies. It has secured extra funding and
claims that witnesses who co-operate with the inquiry will be immune
from prosecution, including offences under the Official Secrets Act.
However, victims’ solicitor Kevin
Winters says: “This case has to be taken by the Goddard inquiry, because
the applicants and many others believe there was a cover-up. It has
never been properly investigated, and the sense of there having been a
cover-up is compounded by a very real perception the Banbridge inquiry
is not fit for purpose.
“The HIA is not a statutory inquiry and
doesn’t have the necessary powers. It is true it can seek to be given
those powers, but that would take primary legislation, and we can’t know
how quickly that would happen or how effective.
“In the absence of a proper inquisitorial inquiry, this case must be taken on by the Goddard inquiry.
