Metropolitan Police reviews how it handles allegations against ruling elite

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe: 'We are not afraid to learn'

by Ian Greenhalgh

Last week I reported on the case of distinguished former head of the British Army Lord Bramall and his vocal complaints about the false allegations of historic child sex abuse that had been levelled at him:

In my article I explained how the tactic of making false allegations against an innocent man like Lord Bramall is used to cast doubt on allegations made against those who really are guilty and to damage the investigation into the wider elite paedophile ring.

Already, the second stage of this process is under way as the Metropolitan Police head Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe orders a review of how his police force handles the investigation of allegations against powerful figures in and around the Westminster ruling elite.

No doubt this is a cover-up and only adds creedence to the allegations of a paedophile ring within the British ruling elite.

Met Chief Orders Review Of Child Abuse Cases

The move follows criticism of Operation Midland, the Met probe into sex claims centred on Westminster in the 70s and 80s.

Met Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has ordered a review into how his force deals with VIP child abuse cases.

It follows the furore surrounding Operation Midland which continues to investigate allegations of murder and sexual assault centred on Westminster in the 70s and 80s.

Scotland Yard has already conceded it should not have described the allegations from principal witness known only as Nick as “credible and true” in the early stages of their investigation.

Former Head of the Army Lord Bramall and former MP Harvey Proctor have both been questioned as part of the investigation. The Met has since announced that Lord Bramall will face no further action.

Harvey Proctor launched a stinging attack on “Nick” and the police investigation by staging his own press conference last August in which he said he was the victim of a public witch hunt.

“They amount to just about the worst allegations anyone can make against another person,” he said.

Mr Proctor added: “I am a homosexual. I am not a murderer. I am not a paedophile or pederast.”

Wiltshire Police also came under criticism last year by holding a news conference outside the home of the late former prime minister Edward Heath asking for his “victims” to come forward.

The naming of suspects in such cases is likely to be part of the review which will be led by former High Court judge Sir Richard Henriques.

Sir Bernard said: “We are not afraid to learn how we can do these things better, and that’s why I’ve announced today’s review in to how we have conducted investigations in to non-recent sexual allegations involving public figures.

“I am pleased that Sir Richard brings an independent legal mind to advise us whether we can provide a better balance between our duty to investigate and the interests of suspects, complainants and victims.

“The review will focus on police procedures and will not reach judgments on the evidence. That is for the public inquiry to do, should they wish to examine any of the investigations covered by Sir Richard.

“A full copy of the review will be given to the public inquiry.”

Operation Midland is continuing.
