Complaints of cover up of child abuse investigations

We're waiting for Charles Brennan to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Home Office,

I would like to know statistics on child abuse referrals, specifically the cover up of child abuse by authorities. What I mean by cover up is to mislead others, supress or falsify evidence, intimidate witnesses or any other misdemeanours that would be considered to pervert the course of justice to protect a suspected paedophile.

Please go back as far as possible as costs dictate, however I would like to see stats for at least 4 years if this is possible.

1. I would like to know how many complaints the home office has of cover up of child abuse by social services? Please name the councils.

2. I would like to know how many complaints the home office has of cover up of child abuse by the police? Please name the police force(s).

3. How many times has the Home Office instructed police to investigate child abuse and the cover up of child abuse? Please name police forces you have instructed to investigate and the councils (if any) where accusations have been made that they cave covered up.

4. Please supply me with statistics of child abuse investigations leading to custodial sentences against the alleged paedophile where social services have led the investigation.

5. Please supply me with statistics of child abuse investigations leading to custodial sentences against the alleged paedophile where police have led the investigation.

6. Please supply me with statistics of child abuse investigations leading to the parent that reported suspected child abuse losing custody and / or access to their child and the child is given to the suspect or has unsupervised access to the suspect (i.e. alleged paedophile grandparent) where social services have led the investigation.

Yours faithfully,

Charles Brennan
