“Sorry Anonymous, but in the real world Caven simply isn’t that important.
Think about Keith Vaz & the Home Affairs Select Committee who seriously criticised SYP & the Council , yet despite being much more important than Caven they barely caused a ripple.
No, this is more sinister, and I will recount some facts:
1. The SYP attempted to stop the Times article being published on the grounds that it would jeopardise an ongoing investigation that included the Jessica case & doing precisely what they criticised Andrew Norfolk for.
2. They have now concluded that the allegations in the Times are unfounded I.e. Jessica’s evidence is unfounded. Thereby discrediting Jessica.
Now think about any future prosecution of the abuser Ash. What is his Solicitor going to say about her evidence? I’ll spell it out; the Police have already decided upon the value of her testimony by stating that she has made unproven allegations.
The other point to remember is that when investigating Akhtar on this matter they were de-facto investigating themselves. After all they were in the end responsible for the trade off and the decision not to prosecute.
The scary bits include:
1. SYP management surely can’t be unaware that they should not be deemed competent to investigate a case where they themselves are implicated in allowing a perpetrator to go free?
2. Despite this they went ahead & publicised a conclusion that jeopardised an ongoing inquiry and potentially undermined a future trial.
I believe this was all mapped out in advance as a method to get them all off the hook.”
