HOLLYWOOD HARPER??? BDO Alto .2



Senator ILM








"SOJP"






Former ACO Dave Warcup



"BDO Alto"



"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.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Leonard Harper

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

It's the same pattern all the way through. Ian Le Marquand does what the hell he likes to whoever he wants, when questioned just ignores the questions.

This is simply outrageous..........and not a single word about any of this from our media. We are truly under a dictatorship, god help us pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaaasssssssssseeeeeeeeeee?????????????????

ILM is trying to palm this off as a credible report? It's just one kangaroo jump after another with this bloke. He's a nutcase if he thinks the public will swallow this latest debacle. How much money has he been allowed to witter away on these crazy escapades?

Anonymous said...

Its taken a while,but i am now convinced that Ian le Marquand really IS trying to iscredit Lenny Harper.

Needs to made public.
Despite the bloggers claiming that they have the higher moral ground,there is one thing that they all wish.
That the local media would publish some of the evidence of coruption that the bloggers are producing.For until that happens,matters will not progress.And lets face it that despite a lot of wishful thinking to the contrary the majority of residents still rely on the JEP for information.
What is needed is either for a wealthy resident to buy out the JEP and clear out their hierarchy
or someone to fund a free newsletter. Just cannot beat the printed medium....well not yet.

As I have said all along, and showed the evidence for, Le Marquand is one corrupt lunatic....so no one should really be surprised at any of this!

Mr Harper, how serious an issue is the Bdo use of your statement? In your email you say
"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". Mr Le Marquand should have responded straight away. I agree with GeeGee. First he needs to answer the serious questions contained in your emails.

Rico, make sure you find the answer to the above it's so very important. Ilm would have gone "Oh No" when he opened it. You and the VFC are doing really good, blowing the whole cover up wide open. Have you heard any news on the committee of enquiry?

Rico.

I bumped into the Home Affairs Minister, Senator Ian Le Marquand, today in the Royal Square.

I took the opportunity to ask him just "who gave BDO/ALTO Lenny Harper's statement to Wiltshire, bearing in mind that Wiltshire had refused Mr. Harper a copy, it was highly confidential and exempt from Freedom Of Information."

He replied by telling me "I am in e-mail contact with Lenny (first name terms?) and I believe it was Wiltshire that gave it to BDO/ALTO."

So as far as ILM is concerned it was Wiltshire.

Le Marquand will blame anyone who's name is to hand, and taking into account all the money he has given them, I am sure they will take the rap for this....

Why would Wiltshire give Bdo Alto Lenny Harpers confidential Statement. They are independent and have nothing to do with Wiltshire. This is so serious that the truth on this must be found. My guess is that someone in the Jersey office handed it over. Rico, remember it was BRian Napier who changed his own TOR. LOL, this lot will blame anyone.

Wiltshire refuse Lenny Harper a copy of his own statement. LH only gave that statement on the proviso it was only being used in the disciplinary case. Then Wiltshire give it to a third party who have nothing to do with the disciplinary case. WHAT THE FECK IS GOING ON???????????

April 2009 Lenny Harper makes a confidential statement to Wiltshire then sometime after september 2009 they just hand it over to an independent financial accounting firm. Is ILM having a laugh here. This farce keeps getting more and more exposed by the day.....

looking at ILM's website
splattered across the top is the legend:-

"FAIR AND ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT"

fair and accountable to who Mr.Le Marquand?

he also claims to be independent,

as a dyed in the wool 'Firms' man
he must mean independent of the people of this island

Never to be re-elected Noel, Pryke, and Reed, all present members of the council of ministers, all sound the same under presure.

Today, think it was Noel being questioned, about the closure of Valare Band House St Saviours Hospital, leaving 9 capable craftsmen, with Mental and Physical Health problems unsure of their future place of work for the next 18 months.

Noel did,nt have a clue what was going on.

TJW, did you get this recorded?

Well worth a listen/cringe.

VFC

As far as I know, the only email Lenny Harper has received from ILM was the first one refusing to release his statement into the public domain. Lenny is still awaiting the answers concerning the use of his statement and so on.

More importantly, where is the outrage from our elected "representatives"?

I agree. We have some excellent politicians who have fought for the truth but the vast majority remain silent. Our government is mostly spineless and not worth the 40 plus grand they get paid.

Sometimes, when im out with friends, we talk about the stuff I post on my blogs. They end up laughing and basically say "lol you had us going then for a second" and I say i'm deadly serious. It so defunct over here I sound like a loon explaining it. We are a hick, backwards village straight out of an American B movie.

On a slightly different issue but still dealing with the shambles that is "Jersey Government" we have this.

WRITTEN QUESTION TO THE CHIEF MINISTER
BY THE DEPUTY OF ST. MARY
ANSWER TO BE TABLED ON TUESDAY 17th MAY 2011

Question

When the former Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police wrote to the Deputy Chief Executive on 31st March 2010 saying that he would cooperate with the Napier inquiry into his suspension, were there any qualifications or provisos made by him in that letter as to his willingness to cooperate with the inquiry?


Answer

The former Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police wrote to the Deputy Chief Executive on 31st March 2010 saying that he would wish to assist Mr Napier subject to clarification on aspects of the confidentiality and evidence obtained by Mr Napier. The Deputy Chief Executive clarified these issues in writing on 16th April 2010 along with other practical matters regarding records, professional advice and accompaniment. Subsequently, the former Chief Officer did indeed co-
operate with Mr Napier in the inquiry.


Now, just look at the answer given. I don't have the time right now to post on this but please go back to my postings on Napier. I will get the the links up soon. Do we all remember the Chief Minister standing up in the states chamber and saying the reason part D was dropped was because the former Chief of Police had given his consent to partake in the Napier Report. Here is a quick snippet.

2.9 Deputy F.J. Hill of St. Martin of the Chief Minister regarding the alteration of the Napier terms of reference:

It is a case of third time lucky; maybe this time. Given that the explanations given as to why and when the Napier terms of reference were altered to refer to decisions taken after R.39/2010 was presented to the States, will the Chief Minister inform Members when this was done and who was party to the decision and explain why he and the Deputy of St. Martin were not party to those discussions?

Senator T.A. Le Sueur (The Chief Minister):

In answer to the Deputy’s questions in October and November of this year, I referred to the changes that were made to the terms of reference and to the confirmation received from the former Chief of Police that he would fully participate in the investigation. I do not recall making any reference to decisions being taken after R.39 was presented to the States. The former Chief of Police confirmed to the Deputy Chief Executive in a letter dated 31st March 2010 that he would fully participate in the investigation, that date being well before R.39 was presented to the States. Because there was agreement between Mr. Power and Mr. Napier concerning participation that would enable Mr. Napier to gain full access to information, there was no need to involve either myself or the Deputy of St. Martin.


Today We Have
". The Deputy Chief Executive clarified these issues in writing on 16th April 2010 along with other practical matters regarding records, professional advice and accompaniment."

Rico,

You will no doubt keep us updated on the no reply (yet) from ILM to LH.
And the no comment reply from Napier to you.

Both of these emails/letters have to have proper replys.

Without excuses.

Hi Anon

I plan on going to press tonight on the latest developments and the responce given by Senator ILM. We are looking for the answers and very determined to find them. The only problem I have at the moment is finding the time to do the work. So, "WITH A LITTLE LUCK" a new Blog Posting will be up today.

Wiltshire have been asked

BDO Alto have been asked

ILM has been asked

All will be posted later. A very big thank you to everyone who clicks on the blogs. I know not everyone leaves a comment and thats sound as long as you click on and spread the word.

Cheers
