Cross Referral Galician SS War Crimes Inquiry 2006 to Chief constable Lord Henniker visit 1992

Richard Card made this Freedom of Information request to Suffolk Constabulary

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Suffolk Constabulary,

You have had an earlier FOI re the Henniker visit 1992.

I need to emphasise that Sir John Stradling Thomas MP died at his Dolphin Square Home between the two final readings of Greville Janners War Crimes Bill being driven through by Attorney General Patrick Mayhew. March 1991

I need to emphasises that Mayhew in the 70s was legal officer to the GMC hearing that let convicted child abuser Dr Morris Fraser stay in practice which the press often associate with Kincora. And of course Dr Fraser was a co author with the notorious child abuser social worker Peter Righton who was the reason Islington Safeguarding raised the Chief constable visit to Lord Henniker in 1992. (See email re Corrie McKeague funding)

Please disclose whether the 2006 War Crimes Inquiry was linked to the 1992 Chief constable visit to Lord Henniker and associated records.

Strange old bit of law (I am no lawyer) which seemed to say ex SS who legally acquired UK citizenship could be made retrospectively subject of UK jurisdiction for what they did as enemy. But ex SS who stole UK citizenship would not be subject of War Crime Act.

I know Lord Janner had a lot on his mind as Patrick Mayhew pushed the law through 1991 the house. Such as charges re alleged child abuse being dropped in the Frank Beck case Leicester.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card

Dear Suffolk Constabulary,

I appreciate the related FOI is complex and appreciate your efforts in running down records such as the 2006 preparation for Chief constable defence on facts.

The question here is did the Galician SS inquiry cross refer to the matters at issue for Chief constable defence and to the visit to Lord Henniker re Islington Suffolk Project and Peter Righton by Chief constable 1992.

Your common line of inquiry is the release scheme 1971 and 1972 of German held postwar internees by Sue Ryder and Airey Neave. And this also relates to the Gwent Police investigation into same 1972 which was a matter being raised by Sir John Stradling Thomas MP up to his death at his Dolphin Square Home March 1991. It was 1992 spring that Chief constable Suffolk was asked to liaise with Gwent re document burglary of former Gwent Regional Crime Squad officer who had been on the internment release inquiry 1972.

I hope you can soon find the answer to this now overdue FOI

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card

Dear Suffolk Constabulary,

You are overdue to answer. Would I be right that you cannot find a collated file circa 2006 as referred to in this FOI and the FOI about medical research in county ?

Yours faithfully,

The Constabulary responded to your requests on 3 May, which I attached for your reference.

You then followed this up with an internal review request, however this was later rescinded by yourself on 8 May 2018.

I hope this assists
