Sex Trafficking by Local Authority Councillors

Henry Winstanley made this Freedom of Information request to Lambeth Borough Council

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

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Lambeth Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Lambeth Borough Council,

There is much information in the public domain to suggest that local authority officers are sex trafficking children and are protected by the police and the crown prosecution service. Brian Pead mentioned this in his book FROM HILLSBOROUGH TO LAMBETH and was then jailed.

The Daily Mirror published this article on http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/pae...
and
http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/pae...

Spurious allegations were made against Brian Pead after he uncovered unlawful activity by Lambeth Council Officers, including Barry Gilhooly, Cathy Twist and Phyllis Dunipace OBE.

1. Was the South African teacher known as Maryn Murray ever reported to the police for child grooming?
2. Do Lambeth Council CRB check all overseas and foreign teachers/ supply teachers/ ancillary staff?
3. Who was Head Teacher of the Open Learning Centre for Vocational Studies in Vauxhall from April 2007?
4. What measures are in place to prevent council officers and workers from sex trafficking children in local authority care?
5. Is the Connexions Service used to help traffic children for sexual purposes?

Yours faithfully,

Henry Winstanley
