In light of the disgraceful decision of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) not to prosecute Lord Janner – which effectively halts Leicestershire Constabulary in their two-year efforts to investigate his involvement with, and possible links to, other abusers – it has been revealed that he was being investigated by Operation Midland for his links to the high-profile abuse ring connected to Westminster at the same time
The Labour peer was identified as attending several VIP sex parties in London where under-age boys were abused by powerful perpetrators between 1979 and 1982. The parallel Operation Midland investigation into Janner has been operating for six months before the dreadful decision of the CPS.
The CPS announced on Thursday that Leicestershire police has gathered enough evidence under their ‘Operation Enamel’ to charge Janner on 22 counts of sexually abusing nine boys – six of buggery and 16 counts of indecent assault – but it was not in the public interest to prosecute him because he has severe dementia.
Leicestershire police are seeking legal avenues to challenge the decision of the CPS.
Although Janner may have advanced dementia and be unfit to stand trial, the decision of the CPS means that the police are unable to gain search warrants to look for other evidence which may lead to information which would help in their investigation into other suspects.
