Brian Napier QC- The whole truth and then our Governments version of the truth
So the Brian Napier QC report is getting closer. I have just received the written answers to Deputy Pitmans questions. I find its getting a little strange.
So, we do know that a draft has been sent to Deputy Chief Executive John Richardson we know this because " SCOTT" letters have been sent out.
Who got one?
Former Home Affairs Minister Andrew Lewis
DCO David Warcup " ? "
Former Chief Minister Frank Walker
Chief Executive Bill Ogley " Thats an odds on in my book"
Former "HR" Guy Mr Critch " yup"
WRITTEN QUESTION TO THE CHIEF MINISTER
BY DEPUTY T.M. PITMAN OF ST. HELIER
ANSWER TO BE TABLED ON MONDAY 13th SEPTEMBER 2010
Given that the Napier Report, that the Chief Minister hoped could be completed in six weeks, is now many months overdue and mindful that the Wiltshire Report was also more than a year overdue, cost the taxpayer a seven figure sum, yet did not result in any disciplinary proceedings, will the Chief Minister now clarify the following –
(a) when will the Napier Report be published and be made available to Members?
(b) upon publication will the Chief Minister ensure that States Members receive a copy in advance of the media?
(c) will the Napier Report be published in full and not in a ‘redacted’ form?
(d) how many draft versions of the Napier Report have been written in arriving at the final version?
(e) has the final version been altered in any way as a result of input from those individuals receiving so-called ‘Scott letters'?
(f) has the Deputy of St. Martin been kept fully informed, involved and made aware of all material and developments at all stages of Mr. Napier's investigation, as was agreed when the process was set in place; and if not, why not
a) Mr Napier advised me last week that the final report would be with me today, but so far I have not yet seen it. Until such time as I have received and considered it I cannot give a definite date for its publication.
b) When the report is ready for publication, I will ensure Members receive a copy before the media.
c) I hope to be in a position to publish the full report but until I am able to complete a thorough review of the final report I cannot give that assurance as it is only fair and reasonable that anyone named in the report having given evidence, but not directly involved in the suspension process, is given appropriate protection from any adverse publicity.
d) I do not know how many draft versions have been produced as I have not received any draft copies of the report but I understand that a draft was produced and sent to all of those people who were involved in the suspension process where Mr Napier had comment to make on their participation.
e) I do not know if Mr Napier has made any alterations as a result of the feedback he has received from those to whom he circulated a draft copy.
f) The Deputy of St Martin and I have been in correspondence at various stages of the review and he has been kept aware of progress and developments.
These are some comments by VFC on his latest blog posting
"These are “unconfirmed” reports that he, along with Acting Chief Officer David Warcup have both received “Scott Letters” from Brian Napier QC as part of his, long awaited, Report. The unconfirmed reports I am getting tell me that our “powers that be” are trying to “persuade” Mr. Napier to “tone down” his criticisms of David Warcup and Andrew Lewis for the final version of his Report……..Now where has that happened before?" "Like I said, this is all unconfirmed but if the source proves to be as good as their word (they’ve been good in the past) then I hope to have something a little more substantial very soon."
"Well if my source is correct and David Warcup has received a "Scott Letter" then where will that leave Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand? He's been trying to convince us all that the "Holy Grail" Report from Wiltshire completely vindicated David Warcup." Interesting times ahead......
"Word has reached me from a source close to the Chief Ministers Office who says that it is quite apt that former Deputy “Andrew” Lewis should get a mention at this time."
Now, what if Brian Napier has done a proper job and lets be honest here with so much in the public domain he should have, I believe our Government have a problem.
The whole Graham Power suspension focuses on this report. This report is dealing with the original suspension, this is before the 1 million fishing trip by Wiltshire but more on that later. As we normally do on Team Voice we get in contact with the main players, we have been in contact with Brian Moore the Chief Constable of Wiltshire.
The Players named above have Suspended a Chief of Police in the middle of Huge Child Abuse Investigation
They did it when the Chief was on holiday
The Judicial Review said it had some serious flaws
Graham Power was given his first "Kangaoo Court on the morning on the 12 november 2008"
Notes where destroyed
No procedures were followed
The suspension code was written hours before as they only had the old committee one
The Players are getting a better chance than Graham Power was ever afforded
A suspended Chief of Police never returns to office
In my opinion, I believe Graham Power was removed from office so the Child Abuse investigation could be shown to be a lot of noise about nothing
The Liberation day speech of 2008 was the beginning of the cover up
If Brian Napier is a man who cant be turned or leaned apon then our Elite have a problem.
Interesting Times Indeed
Deputy Hill should have the Draft Report and the final report so we know all is above board
