Relative authority of Police Force and Secret Services

Tom Young made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

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

Waiting for an internal review by Home Office of their handling of this request.

Dear Home Office,

Recent revelations regarding child abuse scandals which are alleged to involve figures in high public standing (e.g. MPs, members of security services) such as Kincora, Elm Guest House, Lambeth and Islington/Jersey appear to have a common theme; whilst diligent members of the Police force attempted to pursue investigation into what appear to be horrific crimes, in almost all instances, they were prevented from completing their investigations, often by the security services.

Therefore, I would like clarification on who holds the most rank and authority; the Police Force, or the Security Services such as Mi5 (e.g. do the security services have ultimate say over police investigations) ?

Yours faithfully,

Tom Young

Dear Home Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Home Office's handling of my FOI request 'Relative authority of Police Force and Secret Services'.

Given mounting evidence of some very dark acts, not to mention ongoing delay of charges linked to paedophile rings within Westminster and beyond, I find it shocking that the Home Office cannot take the time to meet their legal obligations. Of course, many people say that another cover up is being attempted, which would not surprise me in the least given the links between Leon Brittan (who has some very serious allegations surrounding him) and the most recently appointed chair of the national inquiry into state funded child abuse, Fiona Woolf.

I expect a full and thorough review, with published findings as it seems the general state of affairs is for honest policemen to spend hours investigating, only to be blocked from on high by the intelligence services. Even the National Crime Agency seems to be hampered in it's efforts to pursue high level paedophiles and child traffickers. All the while, Taxpayers money is being used to perpetuate the cover up.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

Yours faithfully,

Tom Young

Dear Home Office,

Many Thanks for your reply, I still have concerns about a number of allegations surrounding the participation of Mi5 in paedophile rings, used as a means of exerting political pressure on MPs and other people within the hierarchy of government and the judicial services.

Some even say Mi5 are still involved in these activities in pursuit of covert agendas and go some way to explain why cases such as Rotherham took so long to come to light.

Since the Home Office holds authority over Mi5, I was wondering who will take responsibility for looking into these claims and ensuring there is full public accountability?

I have been informed there is some very serious conflicts of interest surrounding the appointment of Fiona Woolf, due to links with Leon Brittan, who along with being named on the Elm Guest House List (along with a person linked to Westland Helicopters) is also allegedly linked to a very disturbing video seized by customs officers from known child trafficker Russell Tricker. Of course, he was also home secretary at the time that documents compiled by the late MP Geoffrey Dickens were submitted (which have apparently mysteriously gone missing).

Can you explain why it is that the MPs who sparked the demand for an inquiry into abuse have not been consulted about the appointment of the chair and panel?

Also, will the original terms of reference set out in the letter sent by the MPs who instigated the demand for the inquiry be pursued?

I appreciate this is a lot to ask, but as I'm sure you can understand, these are some very important questions.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Young
