"WILTSHIRE STATEMENT SCANDAL?"
An Independent Report so Independent that they didn't even bother contacting DCO Lenny Harper or CPO Graham Power QM
They did speak with serving officers or did they? There is reference in the BDO report to conversations with officers who were serving with Lenny Harper during Operation Rectangle. This is mainly to do with the trips to London between January and July 2008.
When reading this report you have no idea under which conditions these officers are offering up their evidence?, opinions?, casual chat in the SOJP Cafeteria?,under oath?, in the office with Dave Warcup? you are left with no idea.
This is from page 4 BDO Report;
"Mr kellett has specifically provided input to this review utilising his own knowledge of the management of major police operations as well as police regulations , and has liaised between the SOJP and BDO throughout the course of this review. He has assisted BDO in identifying and commenting upon items of expenditure in specific areas and has held discussions with individuals from SOJP as well as third party contractors involved in this investigation"
He has held Discussions? What, was it a workshop? I find this report really quite staggering and how it slipped in under the radar I will never know seeing as this was what the MSM were using for their "Lavish Hollywood Harper Lifestyle" headlines.
Now get this. On page 5 we have;
"As part of the review we have met with and interviewed the Key personnel involved with the management of the investigation , within both the SOJP and Home Affairs , as well as the two principal external consultants - Mr Grimes and LGC, both of whom we discuss in some detail in this report. We have not interviewed the ex -SIO, Mr Harper as part of this review"
Just amazing. So, are we saying they have taken signed statements. What are they using for a counter balance?
It gets a little Sinister
NOW FOR A SHOCKING TWIST
Someone at Home Affairs, the Law Office or the Deputy Chief Officer of the States of Jersey handed BDO Alto or Michael Kellett DCO Lenny Hapers confidential Wiltshire Statement.
Think about that for a moment
BDO Alto don't bother contacting Lenny Harper yet need his confidential Wiltshire Statement that has nothing to do with them. So, how do we know that they have a copy? Amazingly they quote it in their report. I nearly fell off the chair when I read it. LH gives a 5 day solid interview to Wiltshire and someone else hands it to a third party? It's gone way beyond crazy over here. Again, I ask. Is it just plain incompetence or corruption, probably both.
On page 12 of the BDO Report we have, & I kid you not, check it if you don't believe me and I quote;
" In Mr Harpers statement to Wiltshire Police he notes that several meeting took place with the Home Affairs ( during the course of the Investigation) but that he has never asked for detailed forecasting of costs. This contradicts with our discussions with the Finance and Administration Manager at Home Affairs."
" Mr Harper also notes in his Statement that Home Affairs queried certain expenses , such as the Australia trip , but that they were always happy with the explanation given."
Then on Page 21 we have:
" There was failure to implement a number of ACPO policies relating to management of MIR, impacting effectiveness and management of resources. Mr Harper has previously noted in a statement to Wiltshire Constabulary in April 2009 that, in his opinion, the ACPO standards of investigation do not normally apply to SOJP because SOJP is not a Home Office force"
I contacted Mr Harper as soon as I read these quotes. Someone has been passing his confidential statement about. Now, remember in my last posting. LH asked ILM to make his statement public, ILM said NO. Lenny Haper has been emailing the Home Affairs Minister demanding answers. I reproduce them here so my readers can keep informed as to what is going on.

Dear Mr Le Marquand;
I have recently become aware of the BDO report which seems to criticise my use of resources during the Historic Abuse Investigation. Bizarrely, no one from BDO has ever attempted to contact me to ask me anything at all about my decisions during my use of resources. Not only does this cast huge doubt on the validity and credibility of the report, but it goes a long way towards explaining the factual errors and wrong assumptions endemic in the report. Can you shed any light on how a report about the use of resources during a criminal investigation failed to even contact the person responsible for the use of those resources?
I notice that in the report BDO also quote from my Wiltshire statement. On a least one occasion they quote incorrectly from it. When I made this statement I was refused a copy and I made it only on condition that it was used solely for the discipline investigation into Graham Power. Wiltshire made this quite clear. This binding agreement appears to have been ignored and Data Protection issues arise. Can you please inform me who authorised the release of my statement and the breach of the agreement as to its use, who it is that is quoting it in the BDO report, and what action you will take in respect of the breach of the conditions under which I made the statement.
Finally, in the light of the errors in the report concerning what was said by me in the statement, will you now reconsider your decision not to make it public in order that the truth can be revealed.

Good morning Mr Le Marquand;
Last week I sent you the e mail highlighted below. I have not had an answer or even an acknowledgement from yourself. Whilst I appreciate you may be busy, the matters raised in the e mail impact directly on your area of responsibility and I would appreciate answers to the questions. Additionally, I would like to ask you, as the person who initiated the BDO report, which was intended to ascertain how well resources were utilised during Operation Rectangle, did you not consider that when examining the validity of the use of the resources that it might be vital, even if no one else was interviewed, to have BDO speak to the person who decided how those resources were to be used? One would have thought that in the interests of truth, factual accuracy and the credibility of the report, this would have been vital? Or not? What were your reasons for not ensuring that BDO spoke to the only person who knew the answers?
JUST WHAT IS GOING ON?
THIS IS YOUR GOVERNMENT
If only our Government had put the same kind of effort into protecting children than they have on Menu prices in London. We would all be happier.
They have spent more time, and money on trying to discredit the Investigation than bringing proper closure for the Abuse Survivors.
More interested in London Menus than 4 priority suspects still working in the States of Jersey.
Discredit Discredit Discredit
Next Posting Lenny Harper reply's to the whole BDO Alto Report/Farce
