HOLLYWOOD HARPER??? BDO Alto .7



SENATOR LE MARQUAND




DAVID ROSE -JOURNALIST






DAVID WARCUP




"THE MOST DAMNING YET"




"THE COVERING UP OF CHILD ABUSE  IN THE JERSEY CARE HOMES"



"BDO Alto"



LIES, LIES AND DAMN LIES




A COMPLETE AND UTTER SHAM OF A REPORT




A REPORT  ALONG WITH THE WILTSHIRE FIASCO LEAVES THE HOME AFFAIRS MINISTER IN AN UTTERLY UNTENABLE POSITION 



THE REASON?




The BDO Alto report was Commissioned by Senator Ian Le Marquand and Accounting Officer Steve Austin Votier on the 29th September 2009. This came with a Terms of reference (if ILM can remember if he was involved or not lol)  and a forwarding letter from BDO Alto. The Final BDO report was handed over in May 2010;



Remember, Commissioned on the 29th September 2009 as can be read here





Let us Remind ourselves of some of the things stated by BDO Alto


Dear Sirs
In accordance with your instructions, confirmed in our engagement letter dated 29th September 2009, we have prepared a Report considering the efficient and effective use of resources during the Operation Rectangle Investigation. 



" BDO has worked alongside Mr Michael Kellett in performing this Review. Mr Kellett is a former senior Investigating Officer serving in the UK, who also set up the North West Regional Asset Recovery Team. He has been separately engaged by the Acting Chief Officer , SOJP; however this report represents the joint findings of Mr Kellett and BDO"

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"


"He has been separately engaged by the Acting Chief Officer , SOJP; however this report represents the joint findings of Mr Kellett and BDO" 

REALLY???????????



That is just a snippet into what the BDO were saying. Now for the most staggering part of this mysterious BDO Alto Report let us Now introduce Mr David Rose of that most infamous daily mail article " Bungled Jersey Child Abuse Probe Branded 20 Million Shamble"


Just by pure chance I needed to read his article again and when I did I had one of those moments when your Jaw hits the floor and carries on doing so for some time. In his piece dated  October 4th 2009 he is actually quoting the BDO Alto Report



Im not joking 


Independent BDO Report commissioned on the 29th September 2009 is being Quoted in an article by David Rose on the 4th October 2009 and just look at what he says


Remember - 5DAYS??


Let us look at some of his Quotes staring with; 


Dave Warcup, Jersey's acting chief police officer, told The Mail on Sunday that he had appointed an independent team of auditors to examine Harper's spending. It includes two forensic accountants and a police expert in seizing criminals' assets.The team's interim report, seen by this newspaper, reveals that Grime was paid £750 a day for the first seven days he spent on the island and £650 a day for the following 136 days.


Financial investigators have spent months poring over the inquiry's costs. They have found they were massively inflated - not only by Harper's mismanagement, but by frequent trips to London, where he and his colleagues claimed expenses for lavish meals.



The report says that between January and August 2008, Harper made six trips to Scotland Yard in London on expenses. He was always accompanied by between one and four other officers. The trips accounted for 18 days of Harper's time and 41 days of his colleagues' time.



"The auditors' interim report concludes: 'It was an expensive mistake to bring in Mr Grime. It would have been far preferable and much cheaper to have tried to obtain appropriately trained dogs and handlers from UK police forces.'Harper, it adds, did not consider this option. For much of the time Grime spent on Jersey, the report reveals, he was not even working with his dogs, but as an assistant to the Haut de la Garenne crime scene manager - duties for which he had no qualifications, and which did 'not justify the payment to him of £650 a day'."



"A leaked report by financial auditors into the investigation shows Grime received £750 a day for the first seven days’ work his dog did and £650 a day for 136 days thereafter. 
But it has come to light that he did not have a UK licence for the job. Grime said this did not matter as Jersey is not in the UK.Meanwhile, colleagues of Harper have told how he clocked up a huge expenses bill by flying to London regularly to hold meetings with Scotland Yard officers.

In total, Harper and his colleague PC Andrew Linsell, a Jersey traffic officer whom Harper appointed as his personal chauffeur, made 49 claims between January and August 2008 on their force credit cards for meals costing more than £50. More than £5,700 was on Harper’s card alone."


"Lenny Harper, the controversial detective who initially headed Operation Rectangle, also spent thousands of pounds of public money staying in four-star hotels and eating in some of London’s top restaurants.His handling of the Haut de la Garenne children’s home probe has been described as a ‘shambles’ by Mick Gradwell, the detective drafted in to replace Harper.

The evidence of lavish expenses claims and extraordinary financial waste includes paying £93,000 to Martin Grime, the handler of the sniffer dog Eddie, who was charged with the grim task of finding children’s bodies that were supposedly entombed in concrete in the institution, known as ‘the Jersey House of Horrors’, which closed in 1986."








Where does this leave Senator ILM and his so called Independent Report? Its all lies, complete and utter rubbish. David Rose is quoting from the so called  BDO Report 5 days after it was commissioned how ? He says financial investigators have spent months pouring over the enquiry's costs  "WHAT" HOW?



What about the bit where it says that David Warcup Commissioned the report? Is this why Senator Le Marquand cant remember what his involvement is?


Did Dave Warcup interview the Police?



You cant make this up.  How much did Rose get paid for this? and what fund did it come from? 



MAKE NO MISTAKE THIS IS DEADLY SERIOUS 


SENATOR LE MARQUAND MUST COME CLEAN ABOUT HIS INVOLVEMENT 


HOME AFFAIRS SCRUTINY PANEL MUST ACT ASAP


BDO ALTO WAS USED TO RUBBISH THE ABUSE INVESTIGATION  IT WAS PROBABLY PUT TOGETHER BY DAVID WARCUP THEN HANDED TO BDO




All we are doing is investigating and exposing the lies that have been used in covering up the Jersey Child Abuse Investigation



I will post more in the comment section



Let us remember what ILM said in his email reply to Lenny Harper

Subject: RE: BDO and my Wiltshire Statement



Dear Mr. Harper, I am sorry to be slow in replying to you on this.

I was not involved in the arrangements for the production of either the Wiltshire Financial report or the BDO Alto report for the simple reason that both of these had to be independant reports. You will be well aware as to why I had to remain independent in relation to the disciplinary reports concerning Mr. Power. However, it may help you if I explain the origins of the BDO Alto report. There had been, by the time I became Minister for Home Affairs in December 2008, considerable criticism of the handling of financial matters in relation to the Haut de la Garenne investigation. That criticism was not only of the States of Jersey Police but also of the Home Affairs Department including Mr. Austin-Vautier who was the relevant accounting officer. I, therefore, decided to commission an independent report in relation to the financial handling. That report ran in parallel with the Wiltshire investigation. However, I had to remain separate from it so that my independence was retained. 

I know that there was some liaison between BDO Alto and the Wiltshire Police but I do not know what form that took. If the section from your statement which is contained in the BDO Alto report is also quoted in the Financial report then it is very likely that BDO Alto obtained access to the Wiltshire Report directly from the Wiltshire Police. I would be very surprised if the Wiltshire Police showed your statement to BDO Alto.     

I have checked the position with Mr. Austin-Vautier and he does not know the answer because he also had to remain separate from the production of the report although he has a similar recollection that there was some liaison between the two.

The BDO Alto report was always intended to be shared with other States Members and it was always likely that it would be made public in some form.

I do not think that any of this makes any difference to my decision that it would not be appropriate to publish your statement even in a redacted form.

Yours sincerely, Ian Le Marquand.

Rico.

So BDO/Alto leaked their Report to David Rose when it was only 5 days into the review? Well it must have been earlier than that if David Rose had his article published 5 days after the review began!

David Rose said they had been investigating for months? when it was a matter of days?

Lenny Harper's statement to Wiltshire gets leaked to BDO, BDO gets leaked to David Rose. Ian Le Marquand doesn't know what involvement he had with BDO?.............And the Home Affairs Scrutiny Panel are counting lumps of dog turd on the beaches!!

This is just so blatant!

An interesting 'analysis' of David Rose -

'David Rose has probably been spoon-fed a press-sheet that favours discrediting the investigation. Another lazy journalist happy to re-draft press-sheets in the house-style of whatever paper they are whoring for at the time. Given the same thing happened with the pre-Iraq war reports, he seems to be an easy touch. The press-sheet was probably handed to Rose by lawyers acting on behalf of the Jersey accused (or by his friendly intelligence chums). Seems to me that high-profile cases like this are always handled as pawns in one political game or other - not just one or two players, but several - and more often than not without knowledge of the other's existence. It was inevitable that the dogs would get sucked into this and just a obvious that some discrediting of them would occur. Who knows: perhaps the lawyers acting on behalf of the Jersey accused were contacted by lawyers representing the McCanns. Pooling resources etc. Adversity makes strange bedfellows of us all. It's just a bandwagon that everyone jumps on, I guess. On one side you have a detective looking for a high-profile case to help him up the promotional ladder, others looking to stick the knife in the Social Services, child abuse campigners pimping around for another cause célèbre. The list goes on. I think Keesha and Eddie have the best approach. They just lie back in the sun and lick their own balls. It's a dog's life, ain't it? Whilst there's no reason to assume that Rose is in the pay of the intelligence services, he does seem to be a fairly ubiquitous figure when it comes to these kinds of reports. A bit of a pushover? A cheap lay? Or is something else going on here?'

my guess is that David Warcup gave David Rose the information then they called in BDO to make it look like a report for ILM's May 2010 Kangaroo Court

This American does not know who the Daily Mail's chief competitors are but you should contact them referencing the article by David Rose. He may have placed the Daily Mail in a legally vulnerable position. It might be quite a coup for competitive journalists in the UK to follow up on David Rose. He is despised by real journalists world wide for his unethical reporting during the lead up to the Iraq War. There are plenty of decent UK reporters who would speak to you further about this, I'm sure, even if they do not otherwise have much interest in Channel Island politics. This is how journalism like yours makes additional inroads with independent outsiders. Make contact.

“I, therefore, decided to commission an independent report in relation to the financial handling.”

VFC, the reasons the discredited media will not do their jobs are the same reasons there is corruption in the entire system. Almost no one involved are doing their jobs from police to judges to foot stamping lackeys and civil servants. Clearly you bloggers are the only Jersey media which will not be discredited by outside media eventually. What you are doing is indeed real journalism and you can't be ignored by those who want their news to be truthful - just because you are not payed. Unpaid journalists are probably the only ones in Jersey who are hard to buy.

voiceforchildren said...

Send a link of this posting to the "discredited" media and see if they will report any of it.

As you know I have sent a number of links to Jon Gripton from BBC Jersey and to date he doesn't appear to have found anything newsworthy or of public interest in them.

How can this be ignored?????????????????????

Anonymous said...

VFC, in addition to sending links to Jon Gripton how about those competitors of David Rose? There are honest reporters looking for good stories with broader National interest, and the possible breaking of data protection laws by an infamous UK hack is of interest in many journo circles. They may protect their own but he is absolutely not one of them. He is a pariah and everything else they hope never to be. The Rose example is used in J school in other countries. Besides, newspapers love to discredit each other. Stories by Rose just make it ridiculously easy.

Anonymous said...

If Stuart can't use this example to prove the impossibility of local justice there is no hope. Multiple laws were probably broken if confidentiality was agreed to in any contracts seen by Rose. Strange as it sounds, contract laws are the most powerful instruments to use at appellate court levels. Judges prefer to consider such clear cut wording and indisputable evidence in print to justify their own proper rulings and to protect themselves from political blow back.

Ex-Senator Stuart Syvret said...

Rico

As a regular reader of my blog, you might remember that I have commented on several occasions that what the Jersey oligarchy does - their abuses of power - their corrupted prosecution system - their suborned judiciary - their invulnerability within Jersey - didn't really matter.

It is - or now was - something of a side-show.
I have often observed that the war we are fighting - is a war against the highest reaches of the British establishment - the Jersey crooks being merely their vassals.

And where goes the imprimatur of the British establishment - you find its heart:

The British judiciary.

Do you understand what I'm saying?

David Rose is a self-confessed - MI5 recruitee.

Check out the article in New Statesman magazine.

I believe you can find it on the internet.

Would you be surprised to discover that many of the bribes - and other funds - spent on attempting to cover-up the Jersey corruption - have come from the Criminal Offences Confiscation Fund - the COCF?

Would you be interested to know just who - including Law Officers, Data Protection Commissioners, prosecutors, lawyers, spin-doctors, journalist - and judges - might have been beneficiaries of the COCF?

I know I certainly am.

David Rose – MI5.

Corruption that goes to the very heart of the British establishment – and a rotten - nakedly corrupt – sleazy – criminal – gangster regime – with an evidenced utter collapse in the very rule of law - right on the UK’s doorstep.

And the whole shameful attempt to criminally conceal decades of child abuse – and other things - now exposed.

Evidencedly exposed – by three bloggers.

This is the British oligarchy’s Egypt / Twitter moment.

I wasn’t exaggerating a while ago when I suggested that VFC and you should take advice in respect of your personal security.

Stuart.

Lenny Harper and Graham Power should by now have excellent grounds to sue Jersey over this, no? The Daily Mail and their paid hack might be financially culpable, too.

Looks like Stuart is rightly following the money again. That is always where the answers are found in scandals like this. That COCF fund has seemed mighty suspicious as an underlying justification for recent high profile criminal cases. drug money is a beautiful thing to an offshore tax haven.

Don't forget, David Rose Bob Woffingham and Richjard Webster were part of a select committee, giving "evidence" of why there should be no "police trawling" in historic abuse cases. David Cameron was at that meeting, google Zoompads Blog Richard Webster its all on there. I have tried to find out who was responsible for selecting those present, but so far have been unable to get that info.

RE: Stuart's comment at 10:06

Stuart has been right too many times for me to be sure he is not right again about the level of British establishment corruption so I think it is important to see the higher courts there as being at least somewhat influenced by fear of rocking the boat in Jersey. That said, in the legal world the strongest court evidence is still often found in contracts. In the example of Warcup's likely disclosure violations to Rose, such stupidly published written evidence may provide little opportunity for the guilty to escape - if they broke contracts. There are judges who do wish to cover their back sides and still rule justly. Contract law in some cases is too one sided to rule in more than one way. That is what I would hope is the case here, where it may be impossible for a judge to justify a ruling which can't be supported by statutory legal precedent.

Dear Home Affairs Minister

During May 2010 you released 3 reports into the Historical Child Abuse investigation. Two were from Wiltshire and 1 was from BDO Alto.

Now, we all know how all disciplinary proceedings were dropped against former Chief of Police Graham Power QC regarding the Wiltshire Investigation yet in this shining beacon of democracy still managed to character assassinate his reputation with the help of the local media and foot stamping politicians.



NOW WE COME TO A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE CONCERNING THE BDO ALTO REPORT


Senator Le Marquand, how did a report you Commissioned on the 29th September 2009
(BDO Alto) appear heavily quoted by Child Abuse Denier David Rose on the 4th October 2009 in his Daily Mail article? I find this staggering.

Let us just remind ourselves about the background of the BDO report and also let us not forget that this was the report used by the local media for the whole 'Hollywood Harper".


This is the forwarding letter from BDO.



Dear Sirs

In accordance with your instructions, confirmed in our engagement letter dated 29th September 2009, we have prepared a Report considering the efficient and effective use of resources during the Operation Rectangle Investigation.

This report was prepared in connection with your wider review of the management of the Historical Child Abuse Enquiry, specifically to provide some assurance that resources have been used efficiently and effectively.

Whilst previously commissioned Internal Audit reports have endorsed the financial controls over the authorisation , completeness, validity, accuracy and timelines of recording expenditure, the issues of the use of resources has not been addressed and that is the purpose of this review.

We do not, in preparing this report and giving any opinions stated herein, accept or assume responsibility for any other purpose or to any other person to whom it is shown or into whose hands it may come save as expressly agreed by our prior written consent. I f others choose to rely on the contents of this report, they do so entirely at their own risk.

The scope of our work is set out in our engagement letter and summarised within the Terms of Reference on page 4.

We emphasise that our enquires would not necessarily disclose all matters of significance to you relating to financial management of the Operation Rectangle investigation . We have not carried out any audit work on the financial information included in our report and express no opinion thereon .

We present and comment on the projected financial expenditure expected to be incurred in this investigation which are solely the responsibility of SOJP and Home Affairs . Since projected results relate to the future , actual circumstances frequently do not occur as expected . The difference may be material.

The accounting officer and Finance Director of Home Affairs reviewed a draft copy of this report.Their comments have been reflected , where we deem relevant , in this report

Yours faithfully

BDO Alto ltd



so, how come 5 days later David rose produced this in the daily mail?

I would like to know how this has happened.


Someone is telling lies, it doesn't stack up

These are david rose's quotes from the 4th october 5days after you commissioned the report

"Lenny Harper, the controversial detective who initially headed Operation Rectangle, also spent thousands of pounds of public money staying in four-star hotels and eating in some of London’s top restaurants.His handling of the Haut de la Garenne children’s home probe has been described as a ‘shambles’ by Mick Gradwell, the detective drafted in to replace Harper.
The evidence of lavish expenses claims and extraordinary financial waste includes paying £93,000 to Martin Grime, the handler of the sniffer dog Eddie, who was charged with the grim task of finding children’s bodies that were supposedly entombed in concrete in the institution, known as ‘the Jersey House of Horrors’, which closed in 1986."

I agree. Couldn't a lawsuit filed by Lenny Harper and/or Graham Power be the way to force the light of exposure on the murky relationships between Rose, BDO, Wiltshire, certain politicians and bent cops? Of course it could take a while to get beyond the corrupt local court level. But it could be another very important case to take to Strassbourg.

Questions:

(1) Does "Massively Inflated" appear in an interim report anywhere?

(2) Does any BDO or Interim Report OPINION on financial information or audit work appear anywhere? The (above) BDO Alto statement includes, "We have not carried out any audit work on the financial information included in our report and express no opinion thereon."

And another quote:

"The team's interim report, seen by this newspaper,..."- David "The Hack" Rose.

Questions:

(1) How many have seen the interim report "The Hack" refers to and who decided it was proper for "The Hack" to access it?

(2) Is this the same infamous Interim Report lied about by so so many, but allegedly seen by almost nobody?

(3) Would a Freedom of Information request in either Jersey or UK work if the blogger could show that a confidential report had been shown or leaked to a hack without any repercussions for leaker or (leakee) hack?

" 'It was an expensive mistake to bring in Mr Grime. It would have been far preferable and much cheaper to have tried to obtain appropriately trained dogs and handlers from UK police forces.'Harper, it adds, did not consider this option."- alleged quote of auditor from the Interim Report, as per the same article by "The Hack."

Questions:

(1) In reference to the above statement is there a report which states that Harper did not consider any particular option? How did anyone anyone know what he may have "considered"?

(2) If the best practice would have been to bring in different dogs and handlers, would Harper have been informed of that by high level UK policing authorities who were already actively advising and consulting with him on that investigation?

(3) Who actually used the term "expensive mistake?" Was that made up by "The Hack" or is that a stated opinion of a consulting/reporting authority?

Rico, here is a question for ILM. When he says he has to remain "independent" or says a report is "independent," what the heck does he mean? Independent of whom or of what, exactly? Why? He can't possibly pretend he was afraid of being "influenced" by a report. He appears to have had the greatest influence of all on maintaining everybody else's lack of independence in this entire matter.

The Home Affairs minister today claims, in a written answer to the States, that the BDO report only cost 14 grand not 64 grand

WHAT is going on??? Is it a spelling mistake? Or is someone still using the same dodgy typewriter as was used for part D of Napier?

Or they meant how much they spent investigating each Harper lunch bill.

"The great jersey bbc must be on the trail..."

After numerous e-mails of bringing this to the attention of Jon Gripton, the e-mails remain un-answered.

Cut-n-past text into a text editor (NotePad on a Windows PC) first, then cut-n-paste from there onwards to the blog - it will remove crazy formatting and colours.

Do you think Jon Gripton has been bought off by the oligarchy?

I have contacted CNN's International Bureau to inquire about follow up coverage of the HDLG scandal and the complicity of local media. Let's see if they take a look.

I was hoping that there was a pre-formatted flyer with graphics (easy on the eye for the people who are currently unaware of events and are in for one hell of a shock) that we could print out and deliver.

Perhaps we can find an "accredited" student intern/journalist to interview Mr Gripton about BBC coverage of these damning pieces of evidence. We will seriously try.

BDO Alto are very experienced, they also secure a lot of work on behalf of the States of Jersey.

In the report listed and placed below, prepared for the Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, they certainly had no problem inviting “ Jersey Heritage Trust staff “ to have their say even providing a draft copy to JHT to correct errors.

Lenny Harper as the lead officer, should clearly have been interviewed by BDO not doing so is dereliction of duty.

How strange, if not completely absurd that for some reason, the powers that be in Jersey refuse natural justice to Graham Power and Lenny Harper. The right of reply is supposed to exist in a democracy. Obviously these two honourable men are being gagged, it must be for strong reasons
