Crown Prosecution Service is orchestrating a whitewash

"Leading politicians from seven parties have come together to attack the decision not to prosecute Lord Janner over child abuse and accused the CPS of orchestrating a 'whitewash'. "

"Putting the election aside, 11 leading figures said that Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders was ‘damaging public confidence’ in the justice system with her ruling." 

Alison Saunders head of Crown Prosecution Service
"The CPS has been accused of double standards for not prosecuting Lord Janner after it emerged at least 19 men with dementia have been convicted of child sex offences since 2010, including ten in the past year."

"MailOnline has revealed that some paedophiles, including several too ill to enter a plea, have still been prosecuted and in some cases jailed for the rest of their lives because of historic sex attacks..."

"Mrs Saunders announced last week that 86-year-old Labour peer Lord Janner, who has dementia, would not face trial over 22 serious offences against nine alleged victims in Leicestershire, from the 1960s to the 1980s..."

"Mrs Saunders’ decision has already drawn criticism from Home Secretary Theresa May. Police are considering a legal challenge, and Lord Macdonald of River Glaven, a former director of public prosecutions, has also questioned the decision."

Some comments:

 "The same Theresa May who voted against a proposal to grant immunity from prosecution under the Official Secrets Act to anyone giving evidence of historic child abuse? "

"If Theresa May is so concerned, how come she has no problem with the dozens of Sealed records (75 years) pertaining to dozens of care homes and orphanages. She's part of the problem."
