The many roles of Baroness Butler-Sloss

One of the patrons of the British Association of Adoption and Fostering (BAAF), the charity which has recently collapsed, was Baroness Butler-Sloss GBE.

On its website BAAF says: "Among her many roles she has been High Court Judge and President of the Family Division."

So Baroness Butler-Sloss was part of the system which fed children into the adoption and fostering industry. Many would see that as a conflict of interest.

She has several other interesting connections; one of them is that she is also a trustee of the Human Trafficking Foundation. This is an organisation which gets to know about the movement of vulnerable adults and children.
She had to stand down from the inquiry into child sexual abuse because her late brother, Sir Michael Havers, was accused of a white-wash after he backed a decision not to prosecute Sir Peter Hayman, a paedophile diplomat caught exchanging obscene material.

Recently, Baroness Butler-Sloss gave character evidence on behalf of Philip Chard who was convicted of raping a 13 year-old girl.

"Lady Butler-Sloss, who is a working peer in the House of Lords, said she had known Chard for 20 years because his mother Valerie was her cleaner at her home in East Devon."

"She told the jury she was astonished by the allegations against him and considered him unlikely to be a sex offender."

How does she know?  Well, she has had 34 years of experience... so she just knows.

Here she is in 2013 apologising to Fathers4justice for her false statement about death threats from them.

What more needs to be said ?
