"Harper & Power Have Nothing To Defend - Except Jersey's Abused Children"
Lenny Harper defends his record
THE man at the heart of the historical child abuse inquiry says he has been smeared and discredited by people trying to target victims of care home abuse.
Lenny Harper, who was the senior investigating officer at the start of the investigation, defended his record at a Scrutiny hearing yesterday.
During the hearing, called to look into an auditors’ review of the spending on the £7.5m investigation, he gave evidence via a telephone link, saying that he and his boss had pleaded for a budget to work to, but kept being told they had a ‘blank cheque’.
That review criticised him for letting spending run completely out of control, and painted a picture of him and other officers living a celebrity lifestyle with hotel stays and expensive meals in top restaurants with the taxpayer picking up the tab.
