ASHAMED TO COME FROM JERSEY>
I for the first time am going to write a sentence that I never thought would ever come from my mouth I am ashamed to come from Jersey.
I hope that you will print this letter so that my view can be put across to others and hopefully I am not the only one to feel that way I do.
On Monday I attended the States sitting and listen with interest to the questions put to the AG Tim Le Cocq regarding the prosecution of the Mangers of Blanch Pierre Mr and Mrs Maguire. I have to say that I was disgusted at the way in which certain members heckled the questions put to the AG by Monfort Tadier and Trevor Pitman.
I have a friend who was indeed abused by the said managers and the things that she has had to go through in her life beggars believe. I have listened to the extent of the interviews she and many others had to go through and the questions a child is asked during police videos and recordings was unreal.
I can not get into my mind why these people were not prosecuted,
Why the victims were not given their time in court to sit and tell of the horrific acts that were done to them?
Why Was it that the case was thrown out of court?
Why were the Victims told the accused Mr Maguire was so terminally ill that he could not stand trial?
Why was it later televised that in fact the said man was alive and well and living in France a decade later?
Why were the victims not informed of the fact that the said accused was alive and why was he not brought back to face his doings?
Why did the said accused not get brought back to Jersey to stand trial for perjury as was it not a lie that he was terminal?
What Dr’s were involved and where was the supporting medical evidence to say the accused was terminal. Was the then said Dr not also liable to stand trial for perjury
These are all but a few questions running around in my mind today and having read the report last night about this case has made me very upset and sick in the stomach.
Any decent human being with any heart would allow these now adults the right to have their say but unfortunately our States government is run by weak cowards not able to stand up to those who keep them
The comment that has made me respond to the article was as followed “ some information cannot enter the public domain because it will be frustrating difficult and painful for some people. Should it not be what about the pain and suffering and the difficulties that those abused have gone through if they are strong enough and brave enough and have the courage to speak out as it should be then let the victims decide if it is painful. Never mind the states paying thousands and thousand on a court case for Mr Warren.
A sexual physical and mental abuse case in my eyes is far more worthy of court then one of drug conspiracy
I certainly have lost a lot of faith in the states government and I shall be seriously looking into my votes for the future elections. I can not see how any person can sleep at night when there is more then enough evidence to show abuse went on and more then enough evidence to show there has been cover ups. I will stand behind my friend who has had to suffer to this day because of what was done to her., and I pray that those involved in not allowing her, her time on court never ever have to see any of their family or close friends go through it themselves.
No doubt many reading this will not agree and I know many will it is a shame and I am truly disgusted to say I am from Jersey because of the unfair system we have running us.
I hope this gets published as my full letter and I will also be applying a copy on face book on the jersey news section.
