The Absence of a Child Sex Abuse Inquiry in Scotland
Dear Mrs May,
The recent Referendum in Scotland resulted in a decision to continue with the Union. In your statement yesterday in the House of Commons regarding the Child Sex Abuse Inquiry, you stated that there will be no extension to include Scotland in the CSA Inquiry. There seems to be no good reason for this.
I have included a list of links, far from exhaustive, of recent Scottish CSA cases, both current and those seeking justice from abuse from past events, published in the main stream media. There is the fact that Jimmy Savile was a frequent visitor to Scotland, and owned a property in Glencoe, where he entertained HRH Prince Charles. Also the case of Liam Gibson, of Biggar, found to have nearly 50,000 images of CSA on his computer in 2012, but spared jail, purportedly because he gave vital information on paedophile rings, apparently operating in the Sheffield area. We have the case of Susie Henderson, daughter of eminent QC Robert Henderson, who alleges she was abused by her father, who shared her with a paedophile ring which included Sir Nicholas Fairbairn, former Solicitor General for Scotland. Then there is the well known case of Hollie Greig, accepted by the state as a victim, who was abused by a paedophile ring based in Aberdeen, which, for some reason has a press blackout imposed upon it.
It would seem of the greatest urgency and importance to have a full Inquiry here in Scotland, not least because of the possible links North and South of the border, that could bring forth crucial evidence.
I trust you will reconsider your decision on this matter, in the public interest.
I feel sure that having looked at the links and the evidence, you will agree that there seems to be no logical reason why Scotland should be omitted from the Inquiry, given the sheer scale of abuse and the current existing danger to Scotland’s most vulnerable citizens.
