The largest of the island's scandals made international headlines in 2008 at the Jersey orphanageHaut de la Garenne when nearly 200 victimsalleged that the government had turned a blind eye to horrific crimes against defenceless children for decades. Evidence taken from the orphanage included the exhumed teeth, blood and bones of children. Then, in short order, our island’s chief of police wasillegally suspended, our health minister was thrown out of his job and evidence of children’s remains were irreversibly compromised as Jersey’s governmentscrambled to shut down the investigation at all costs.
After succeeding in doing so, Jersey’s government, to this day,
squanders millions from the public purse to try to silence and discredit
its critics and, most appallingly, shield the accused from being
brought to justice, a number of who remain in high-ranking positions working closely with the island’s children – free to strike again.
The Jersey “Establishment” are a very secret society and are more
powerful and influential than can be imagined. The scandal of Haut de la
Garenne and the wider “Historic Child Abuse” investigation are only the
tip of a very large iceberg.
