"Harper Calls For Proper Independent Inquiry Into Cover Up Jersey"

Calls for independent inquiry into Savile


The man who was in charge of the investigation into historic abuse at Haut De La Garenne is calling for an independent inquiry into claims of abuse by Jimmy Savile.

Former deputy chief of police, Lenny Harper told Channel Television it was inconceivable that Mr Savile's alleged actions would have gone un-noticed by staff at the former children's home.

He believes a UK team should come over to the island to investigate.

In the last few weeks, lawyers representing victims of historic abuse in Jersey say several of them have come forward to say they were abused by Sir Jimmy Savile.

But Savile's friends and family have strongly refuted the abuse claims. They believe it is odd that these allegations are coming to light now he is dead, and say if he was still alive, he would vigorously deny them.

Jimmy Savile was a regular visitor to Jersey in the late 60s and early 70s.


  1. Lenny Harper is bang on the money!
    There must be an enquiry of a wholly independent nature, a Jersey enquiry would not reveal "jackshit"

  2. Go LH!! woot woot.. this is just the "TIP" of the iceberg
