Senator ILM "An Incompetent Mavrick?'


 Former DCO Lenny Harper



Home Affairs Minister ILM
" An Incompetent Mavrick?"



Former Chief of Police Graham Power



Senator Ian Le Marquand


"An Incompetent Maverick and not in least a credible person to be believed by this Assembly or Anywhere else"


Those are the words Senator ILM used to describe DCO  Lenny Harper on March 1st 2011 in the States of Jersey


Was ILM actually talking about himself when he muttered those words? Well all the evidence is pointing to a resounding YES


Can you believe that we have had Decade upon Decade of unchecked Child Abuse in Jersey concerning all aspects of Child Care  and the man who helped smash this vale of secrecy gets called an; "An Incompetent Maverick and not in least a credible person to be believed by this Assembly or Anywhere else"



Readers,  take a moment to think about that.


Add the former Chief of Police Graham Power QPM 


Then think about the above again.

Here are some links that I believe are essential to anyone researching the Child Abuse Cover up. There are more and I would seriously recommend a look through the archive of TONY'S MUSINGS























Now, having thought about that, let me now add this. It's taken from the speech Senator ILM made on the Amendment brought by Deputy Tadier concerning the Law Office on the 1st March 2011: 



"The Deputy of St. Mary offers a statement made, apparently, by former Deputy Chief Officer, who he named in fact today as Mr. Harper, as being a reason to doubt that.  Well, in my view, the opinion of that particular gentleman is hardly a credible source of information.  This is the person who took colleagues on expensive outings to London, with expensive meals, which were totally unjustified in any way whatsoever.  This particular officer, in my view, caused enormous problems in this Island, not just in this context, but in the context of the police force generally, and he is, in my opinion, an incompetent maverick and not in the least a credible person to be believed by this Assembly or anywhere else."

Like I have said; Decade upon Decade of unchecked Child Abuse and the policeman that smashed that vail of secrecy caused "enormous problems in this Island"   


Well i'm sure he did 


The only problem he caused was to the Perverts and Child Abusers who thought they had got away with it for so many years, protected by "The Jersey Way."  Always a blind eye being turned, or, moved along so that "Out of sight out of Mind" made everyone feel better.



Lets not forget that Senator ILM backed up by his Chief Minister has found himself in some troubled waters. Lets take Wiltshire for example. Wiltshire was a Disciplinary review into Graham Powers (GP) handling of Operation Rectangle.



 Very early on in Graham Powers suspension Tim Brain who was GP's representative  wrote to Brian Moore the Chief Constable of Wiltshire and asked him what sort of enquiry he was conducting. Was it a "management review" or was it a "disciplinary enquiry?" Brian Moore consulted with ILM and said it was a disciplinary enquiry and that anything he said could be used in evidence against him. 



I have set out to challenge the Home Affairs Minister and get him to answer some of the doubts I have over his actions . The emails are reproduced below.


How come the Chief Minister and the Home Affairs Minister does not accept the findings of the;


ACPO Reports - 1 to 4


The Napier Review




And now the Home Affairs Minister unbelievably does not accept the HMIC Reports


I kid you not we are seriously into Monty Python now. What is Senator ILM going to say next??????



Again this is taken from the SOJ 1st March. Look at how the Home Affairs Minister just dismisses the HMIC & ACPO  "Not of Great Value"  "The matters of ACPO are not terribly relevant". 




The Deputy of St. Mary:
May I ask the Minister for a point of clarification on what he said?  Can he confirm that Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary is on record as praising the officer I quoted for his conduct and track record, and that the A.C.P.O. (Association of Chief Police Officers) police reports found that all our recommendations were speedily implemented and that his conduct at the inquiry was adequate, if not good?
Senator B.I. Le Marquand:
I am very pleased to be able to deal with the first point which I had meant to cover.  It is my understanding upon the basis of information provided to me that the particular report that is being referred to is not of great value because they were completed on a self-assessment basis.  That is information that I have been provided, but I do not think reports into a police force, which are on a self-assessment basis, are of very great value.  Secondly, the matters from A.C.P.O. are not really terribly relevant.  They have been well-rehearsed, particularly the conflict of interests of a particular senior officer from A.C.P.O. in relation to what he said, and also the Wiltshire Report will of course indicate areas in which advice was given but never put into the report at all because it was not well received.



You see, anything that praises the SOJP under Graham Power and Lenny Harper are just dismissed.  Yet, he basses all his assumptions on a Disciplinary Report that cost the Tax Payer a Million Quid. The Home Affairs Minister then drops all disciplinary action, trashes GP in the local media  and hasn't  allowed Graham Power any right of reply under Natural Justice. 




AND HE WANTS TO BE CHIEF MINISTER??????


This is why they are trying to produce a magic trick on Wiltshire. This is why they are trying to turn it into a report into the "Historical Child Abuse Enquiry". 



IT IS NO SUCH THING



A former Magistrate a forgotten all about Natural Justice in a very short period of time. Now, that is not some wild accusation  its just plain fact. Look how he has been trying to change what Wiltshire was really about. It was basically a prosecution case right from the start, all findings to be challenged through the proper channels but now it has become ILM's Life Raft.





Look now how Wiltshire suddenly becomes the Life Raft. 
Senator ILM 

I have one final comment, which was in relation to what my friend, the Deputy of St. John, was saying.  He is basically taking the opposite view, of saying, well I think there is something wrong here and to get it cleared up once and for all time, let us have a public inquiry to show what happened, but in fact that is exactly, in my view, what the Wiltshire Report has done.  A report produced by an independent police force which looks in great detail, and when the Deputy of St. John sees the additional detail I think it will probably satisfy him on this point.  So, for the reasons I have given, I shall be opposing this amendment to the amendment.

How has the Wiltshire Disciplinary turned into this "Let us have a public inquiry to show what happened, but in fact that is exactly, in my view, what the Wiltshire Report has done"

I have more facts that I will leave for comments; Here is the the e-mails I have been sending out. You have read some before but please read them again. Im just a member of the public looking for answers from The Politicians & Local Media. Is that really too much to ask?.



Look at what I have been asking



Look at where ILM's   "Vendetta" Started 





December 31st 2008 is when it all started, long before Wiltshire was under way.

Where has been the Positive Pro- Active work from the Home Affairs Minister that has shown respect and compassion towards the Abuse Survivors? If only he could put the same energy in that department instead of looking a complete fool in keeping that best known Lie going....

I will be looking at a letter sent from Graham Power to the  Chief Minister in my next posting where he asks for his statement to Wiltshire to be published. . The Date was 3rd of April 2010

Oh yes

This has only started

Dear Editor, Journalists, Politicians and Home Affairs Minister


I refer to the headline in today's JEP (Sat 12 March 2011) on page 6 stating "Former police chief alleges personal vendetta against him". 

As you will see from the emails below, I have been trying to get an answer from the Home Affairs Minister ("ILM") with regard to an article that appeared in the JEP on 31 December 2010.  This ties in, I believe, with the so called personal vendetta of ILM against the former chief of police, Graham Power.  ILM stated in this article that "Police bullying is a thing of the past".

The allegations contained within the aforementioned article, were put to Graham Power on 31 December 2008, long before the Wiltshire disciplinary investigation was properly up and running.  Graham Power challenged ILM's allegations, to which ILM replied on 26 January 2009 that he was dropping these allegations.

I found it astonishing that these allegations, having been dropped, resurfaced on 31 December 2010.  I have asked ILM to confirm which reports formed the basis for these allegations.  He has not been forthcoming.

If the circumstance I have outlined are not a personal vendetta, then what is?!

Also, referring to today's article, I am trying to work out how the Wiltshire report went from being a disciplinary investigation into Graham Power's handling of the historic child abuse investigation (Operation Rectangle) to becoming a report into Jersey's child abuse enquiry generally.  Graham Power should have had the right of reply to the findings of the Wiltshire report during the course of a full disciplinary hearing.  The fact that ILM dropped all disciplinary proceedings is no fault of Graham Power, but has resulted in him having lost his right of reply through the proper channels.  Is this what we're calling natural justice in Jersey?  Are we all happy that ILM can keep trashing a man's career and reputation without giving him the right of redress?  I find what has been permitted to occur astonishing.

How is it that the Chief Minister and ILM do not accept the findings of the full ACPO reports and the Napier review, yet are quite happy to churn out their chosen clips of the Wiltshire report, produced solely for a disciplinary process that never materialised.  It is imperative that the local media start asking some basic questions concerning these issues and start challenging our government on behalf of the community.  This cannot be allowed to continue.  We are becoming a laughing stock.

I look forward to replies and your views on these very serious issues.

Kind Regards

Rico Sorda



Dear Home Affairs Minister

Further to my initial email of 2 January 2011 and subsequent email below, I am still researching and I continue to require a response from you.  I know in the past you have been too busy and have indicated that this is not a matter of priority for you, but seeing as you intend to declare yourself in the running for Chief Minister in the coming week, I believe it is imperative that truth, honesty and integrity comes before any formal announcement in this regard.  I have always been open in my approach and the reason for my highlighting these issues is that I believe you are trying to rewrite the history of the States of Jersey Police force under Graham Power, QPM.  This has a huge bearing on the historical child abuse investigation because myself and other researchers are now aware that if the leadership of the SOJP under Graham Power and Lenny Harper can be trashed then people will buy into the view that the flaws in their leadership of the force would inevitably mean that the historic abuse enquiry was equally flawed.

After reading her Majesty's reports into the SJOP, I believe it is imperative that you disclose the reports from which you are quoting in the JEP report dated 31 December 2010 when the allegations had already been dropped in January 2009.

It is no longer acceptable to believe that you can appear on local media channels and remain unchallenged in anything you say.  This is a shocking indictment of Jersey and its local media in 2011.  We only have to look to Egypt and the power of the internet to know that the days of State published propoganda or rubbish to the masses are coming to an end.  Any person putting themselves up for Chief Minister must possess traits such as truth honesty and inegrity.  From what I have seen so far from the Wiltshire Report and the actions that followed, I am not convinced as to your possession of these traits and consequently your ability to fulfill the role of Chief Minister effectively.  I base my conclusions on research and facts.

Kind regards

Rico Sorda

Hi Senator

As I await your reply on the issues I have raised below concerning 'Bullying' and the SOJP I have become even more concerned.

 The reasons for my concerns are quite simple. During my research on the issue of Bullying and the SOJP I decided to contact the former Chief of Police Graham Power QPM . I put the allegations contained in the Diane Simon article to him, what came back not only left me shocked and saddened, it has raised more questions than there are answers.

A little look at what has gone on

In July 2010 you stated in the States Chamber

Senator Le Marquand (Minister for Home Affairs) 

I am not withdrawing the remarks they are absolutely true and I have had to wait a very long time to say it and I will demonstrate that that is absolutely true next week from the reports which I have. I am well aware of the discipline matters, I am able to inform members if they are interested that I have today abandoned the discipline proceedings against the Chief Officer of Police upon the basis that it is impossible to finish them in the time – solely on that basis – there are ample grounds for disciplinary proceedings as will become apparent shortly [Interruption] I am not giving way, but maybe those members who have chosen to nail their colours so firmly to the power mast - without actually checking with me as to what the real facts have been - may have to eat humble pie.


Now, the reason for posting the above is that we all know about the Wiltshire Fiasco. All disciplinary proceedings dropped, yet Graham Power is hung out to dry with the full backing of the Jersey Media,  no chance of challenging the charges,  no recourse. In my opinion an unforgivable act. 

Senator, little did I know that history was about to repeat itself. Now before I go public with this, I would like your thoughts on the actions you have taken concerning the Bullying in the SOJP

On the 29th of December Interview, you stated: ‘I noticed a culture of bullying in certain areas and a culture of arrogance,’ said Senator Le Marquand. ‘The message coming from senior management tended to be “We are the expert professionals and we know better than you”, and that attitude was being passed down the force.’ 

Now, through my research, I have found out that you raised these issues with Graham Power on the 31st December 2008.

These allegations were challenged by Graham Power. 

On the 26th January 2009 you informed Mr Power that you were dropping these further allegations

Senator, how is it that this has resurfaced again in December 2010? You dropped it back in 2008/9

Why is Graham Power getting treated in this way? How do I go about explaining your actions to my readers? You really need to explain your actions here Senator.

I reproduce the correspondence, so there can be no confusion.

Yours sincerely 

Rico Sorda




Graham Power
QPM MA (Oxon)                         
  
28th January 2009.
The Minister for Home Affairs,
11 Royal Square,
St Helier.

Dear

DISCIPLINARY CODE IN RELATION TO THE CHIEF OFFICER OF POLICE.

     Thank you for your letter dated 26th January 2009 under the above heading which makes reference to your correspondence dated 31st December 2008 in which you gave notice of a possible  further investigation relating to an alleged “culture of bullying.”
     I am grateful for your notification that you have decided to take this possible additional matter no further and take this as confirmation that all matters contained in the earlier correspondence in so far as they relate to any allegations concerning any conduct on my part are thereby withdrawn.
     Thank you for keeping me informed on this issue.


Yours sincerely


Graham Power.

Hi Senator 

As you are well aware. I have been researching and investigating the historic child abuse investigation for many months now.  Along with the many matters for concern I have uncovered, not least the Chief Minister, Terry Le Sueur, openly misleading the House with regard to the dropping of Part D of the Napier terms of reference, I have found your role and your judgement so very hard to work out.

I have tried and failed to gain a reasonable understanding of your actions concerning the Wiltshire Report.  If I am not mistaken, the Wiltshire Report was part of a disciplinary process of the former Chief of Police, Graham Power QPM.  I still find it absolutely staggering that a former magistrate, who is meant to know, practice and abide by the law and above all should demonstrate absolute neutrality and fairness, dropped all disciplinary charges against Graham Power and on the same day made a statement to the House without having informed Mr Power of the action taken.  You then proceeded to hold a kangaroo court with the full weight of the local media in hanging Graham Power out to dry with no right of redress through the proper channels.  I have spoken to many people regarding your actions concerning Mr Power's suspension and the reason for doing this, Senator Le Marquand, is to establish your role in the history of the matter and the reasoning behind your more recent actions.

Below I reproduce an article that appeared in the Jersey Evening Post on bullying in the States of Jersey Police.



By Diane Simon


Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand
SIGNIFICANT progress has been made during the past two years in changing the culture of bullying and arrogance which affected the States police, says Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand.
And the positive changes have come under the leadership of former acting police chief David Warcup and his deputy, Barry Taylor, said the Senator.
Commenting at the end of the historical child abuse inquiry, Senator Le Marquand said that there had been cultural issues in the force which were exacerbated under the leadership of police chief Graham Power and his deputy, Lenny Harper.
‘I noticed a culture of bullying in certain areas and a culture of arrogance,’ said Senator Le Marquand. ‘The message coming from senior management tended to be “We are the expert professionals and we know better than you”, and that attitude was being passed down the force.’
Having read the HMIC reports during Graham Power and Lenny Harper's terms in office, I can see nothing but praise for the way in which they turned the Police force around.  As you are aware, there was a HMIC report released in 2001/2 which was very critical on the running of the States of Jersey Police force.
Could you please send me the link to the report upon which the statements made in the above article are based.  The reason I say this is that I will be astonished and shocked if the Home Affairs Minister was in fact just expressing an opinion based on his own interpersonal relations with the individuals concerned.
I very much look forward to receiving your reply as I believe this is a very important issue.
Yours sincerely
Rico Sorda

I forgot to copy you into the email I have sent your editor. Now that the COI has been accepted the time has now come to turn our attention towards the JEP, the reporting of the Child Abuse Scandal and the editorials. Can you shed any light on last nights editorial? Can you point me in the right direction of the  Reports or Documents that would remove the "Scales" from my readers eyes.

Dear Editor

As you may be aware I have been Investigating the Historical Abuse Investigation for many years. I run a Blog Site that can be found here http://ricosorda.blogspot.com/. I have been shocked by the editorial comments in the JEP these past 3 years concerning the Historic Child Abuse Investigation. They have always been very Negative towards the Investigation and very hurtful to some Abuse Survivors. 

Now, i'm willing to inform my readers of any reports or documents that can point me in the direction of your quote below.

Could you please inform me how you have reached the opinion that the police investigation was botched. Im fully prepared to remove the scales from my readers eyes with the Reports and Documentation that you have used to reach your conclusions.

The only Report I know off is the 80% Redacted "Wiltshire Disciplinary Review" into the Former Chief of Police Graham Powers handling of Operation Rectangle. This was dropped by the Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand, used as a prosecution case with the full backing of the local media and gave Graham Power no proper chance of defending himself through the proper channels. 

So, regarding your editorials over these past 3 years can you please remove the "Scales from my readers eyes"

And ILM sure hates those ACPO reports. Remember the big Scandal from April of last year? Let me remind you;

A SENIOR UK policeman whose report praised Lenny Harper’s running of the historical child abuse inquiry was about to apply for a job in Jersey, it was revealed yesterday.

Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand told the States yesterday that there was a ‘potential conflict of interest’ on the part of the author of the ACPO – Association of Chief Police Officers – report.

In response to a question from Deputy Bob Hill, which was held over from the previous States sitting, Senator Le Marquand said that the officer involved might have tailored the report to please his prospective employers.

Deputy Hill asked what the ‘scandal’ was that the Senator had referred to on a radio programme. Senator Le Marquand said: ‘The issue to which I alluded was an issue of whether there was a conflict of interest on the part of the senior officer. ‘That officer was about to apply in Jersey for a senior post in the States of Jersey Police.’

Article posted on 21st April, 2010 - 2.59pm

And then we have this from March 1st 2011

rico sorda said...

Taken from Deputy Hills urgent question on the 20th April 2010

4.1 Deputy F.J. Hill of St. Martin of the Minister for Home Affairs

regarding comments made during the BBC Talkback programme about a senior ACPO officer:Will the Minister inform Members whether he broke a confidentiality clause by claiming on the B.B.C. (British Broadcasting Corporation) Talkback programme that the Wiltshire Police had identified what the Minister claimed to be a “scandal” involving a senior A.C.P.O. (Association of Chief Police Officers) officer, and if so, why? Would he further state what the conflict of interest was and with whom the person involved agreed to intentionally omit certain matters in A.C.P.O. reports? Has the Minister made an official complaint to A.C.P.O.?"

So ILM is going round saying that Andre Baker was conflicted surely he would not just make allegations and not back them up by approaching ACPO with his very grave concerns:

Senator Le Marquand

Finally, I do not believe it would be appropriate for me to make an official complaint at this stage.


Some things don't change with this Minister. I swear the Main Stream Media could finish his political carer overnight if they wanted to.

Shocking, it really is.

Surely Tim Brain coming back on the scene in Graham Power's defence, would finish Ian Le Marquand.

Full stop.

By the way Rico where is Mr Brain these days?

rico sorda said...

Hi Anon

Tim Brain was part of Graham Powers defence team. When ILM dropped all disciplinary action and GP retired his defence team was disbanded for obvious reasons. I can bet that Tim Brain had never come across anything like this place before. The suspension reviews are a must read and the links can be found on the main posting.

Rico,

As you say: bet Tim Brain had never come across anything like this place before.

Therefore it stands to reason, he knows exactly what is going on and surely Graham Power should be doing everything he can and at any cost to get him back to defend him....

At the very least for Defamation Of Character!?

moral-rightness said...

I believe the explanation for ILM's biased position can be gleamed from the most obvious conclusion, being, ILM must have a personal vendetta against Graham Power and Lenny Harper, because, on the available facts there is no other reason for ILM's wild statements nor for his continued inability to be fair and unbiased.

He clearly is not the type of person who should be Chief Minister, heaven forbid!

Who would trust a man, that could not see there was at the very least a perceived conflict of interest, when he was reviewing Graham Powers suspension, while he himself had an official complaint lodged against him personally by Graham Power.

It is said, a wise man can act the fool, whereas a fool cannot act wise, it is clear to me, ILM is a clown and worse, he is not acting!!

rico sorda said...

moral-rightness

All I have been doing is looking at the facts and asking the questions. I come to the same conclusion as you. I have sent some emails out and I believe they deserve answering. ILM was conflicted long before the suspension reviews started, as early as December 2008 he was trying to pin allegations of a bullying culture on Graham Power then resurfaced them when his back was turned.

That is documented fact

"In surveys conducted by the Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism, 34% of respondents said they read news online within the past 24 hours (as opposed to 31% who favored newspapers); and a full 41% said they get most of their news online, 10% more than those who said they got most of their news from a newspaper."
