@Theresa_May Between Promises and Delivery, Abuser Austerity and Victim Prosperity? @IICSA_Media @UKHomeOffice

Regarding the Abuse Inquiry, I found this 20-second video:

16-10-18-home-affairs-committeeThis evidence session of the Home Affairs Committee was a conversation with the Chair of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse [IICSA] and two Panel Members. It ended with Panel Member Ivor Frank asserting their independence, as “your institution is one of the ones we are meant to investigate.”

I had made contact to hand a document to the Chair and was duly impressed by the team’s efforts to stand up for themselves – with two MPs acting on behalf of survivor groups. Shortly afterwards, I got invited to attend the next Victims and Survivors Forum.

After sending them a lot of emails, links and documents as case no 45, I am really pleased, now they have 2,000 cases according to the timeline accompanying this article: Victims could sue child sex abuse inquiry over trauma. When you watch this excellent documentary with over 350,000 views, you can only sympathise:

  • groomed children don’t even dare to tell their parents about the abuse by their teachers;
  • the teachers are NOT properly prosecuted, as the Judiciary is on their side;
  • the victims turned survivors don’t get ANY moral damages or financial compensation…

Even from my perspective, the IICSA has a lot of issues to cover. But the most challenging ones seem to be:

  1. the Home Office and their support versus their undermining efforts:
    1. they seconded a lot of staff and are responsible for remit and Chair appointment;
    2. the IICSA does not have powers to award compensation: couldn’t ‘austerity imposed by abusers’ be re-balanced by ‘prosperity for victims and survivors’?
  2. the Police and their ‘shocking corruption‘;
    1. instead of being independent, the IICSA has a duty to pass information on;
    2. the Home Office wrote to me about ‘police integrity’ after I had pointed out ‘police corruption’ and that only a small minority of officers don’t perform up to professional standards;
  3. the Prime Minister and her inability to keep promises:
    1. the Abuse Inquiry itself
    2. to limit Police Bail, one of the tools abused by Police in their persistent efforts of denial, cover-ups, stitch-ups and gagging.

Regarding Police Bail, I wrote this post and this article appeared in The Telegraph in December 2014:

I have been on Police Bail since August 2015 and petitioned the Home Affairs Committee and others to Abolish Police Bail – in the wake of BBC broadcaster Paul Gambaccini who exposed Savile on TV. Now I’m asking the Home Office whether there’s a chance of Theresa May’s announcement to be implemented and my benefiting?…
