Jersey's politicians will decide in January whether to set up an inquiry into how the island's media operate.
Concerns were raised during a scrutiny review into a financial report on the historical abuse investigation.
The scrutiny chairman's committee president told the States there were three different committees looking at the possibility of an inquiry.
Deputy Tracey Vallois said the committees were working together to determine the best way forward.

The scrutiny review criticised the media coverage of the BDO Alto report into the financial handling of the historical abuse inquiry, which was a police investigation into child abuse in Jersey.
The police investigation began after allegations of abuse at former children's home Haut de la Garenne.
'Same hymn sheet' Deputy Trevor Pitman, who headed the Education and Home Affairs Sub Panel, said the press coverage was very negative and gave a poor impression of Jersey's police force.
He is calling for an inquiry into how the media in Jersey operate.
Deputy Vallois was asked whether she would set up an inquiry following the Leveson Inquiry into media ethics in the UK.
She said: "We are one area, we are scrutiny and we as a chairman's committee have to all be singing from the same hymn sheet in order to ensure that if we should pursue this that it is an effective review and it determines the best way to take this forward."
She said a committee of inquiry could be used rather than the scrutiny process.

John Hemming's Address




John Hemming

* 1

That this House notes the imprisonment of Stuart Syvret; believes that the public authorities of the island of Jersey do not operate in a manner compliant with the requirements of the European Commission of Human Rights (ECHR), there being overt and significant overlaps and contaminations between the legislature, executive and judiciary; further notes that Her Majesty's subjects in Jersey are not protected by effective checks and balances, and that there has been the political repression of former Chief Police Officer, Graham Power and former Senator Stuart Syvret; further notes that, notwithstanding the responsibility the Secretary of State for Justice has for good governance and Convention Rights in Jersey, the island's authorities are permitted to repress opposition activists, and that the Secretary of State for Justice and Jersey's Lieutenant Governor have failed to act; further notes that successive governments of the United Kingdom have committed this nation to securing real democratic freedoms and the rule of law in other jurisdictions, yet in the British enclave of Jersey on the United Kingdom's very doorstep, ordinary powerless people are oppressed by an entrenched oligarchy; and calls on the Secretary of State for Justice to appoint an independent Commission similar to that which investigated corruption in the Turks and Caicos Islands, to investigate the conduct of Jersey's public administration and to urgently bring the protections of the ECHR to Her Majesty's subjects in the island.

  1. Criminal Charges for "Conspiracy to Pervert The Course of Justice" are a minimum requirement in any action against our "State Media" nothing less will be accepted by the (private) public, NOT the (Corporate Public).

  2. So very very long has been both an embarrassment and a disgrace...and we need another newspaper, a real one.

  3. Karen Rankine & CTV, a sponsor of child abuse cover up? GUILTY.
