Default Elm GH ... and related

Considering the vast amount of time and discussion devoted to Elm Guest House and all things related to it on the Savile thread it is certainly worthy of its own thread hence I've decided to finally create one. It's time.

Whilst, ten months after the Elm story first broke, no definite, documented evidence has emerged linking Jimmy Savile to Elm Guest House, there have been mentions in the MSM of his involvement. Hence I've chosen to add the "Savile related" prefix to this.

Not wishing to be restricted to only a few, highly specific subjects about the guest house itself, this thread is intended to take a broader outlook: exploring the past, and to bring information on institutions, individuals, and organizations in this Elm spiders web right up to the current date.

I think a good place to start is with Disco's original post on the Savile thread since this was the first mention of Elm on the thread.

Ideally I'd like to include a timeline post and try to display the Elm story in an easy to follow order and take it from there. I don't have the luxury of time however that I've had over the Summer so any help with that would be mucho appreciated

The beginning...

From the Savile thread. (post 26884 on page 1345)
Sunday 2nd December 2012

'Paedo palace' file re-opened: Detectives probing historic sex abuse claims

A guesthouse where 30 years ago the rich and powerful are feared to have abused young boys is under police scrutiny again


Investigation: House at the centre of police probe
John Clare/Newspics
A guesthouse where paedo VIPs are feared to have abused vulnerable underage boys for years is being probed by cops, the Sunday People can reveal.

A ring of rich and powerful people are said to have used it as a sordid playhouse - and were allegedly snapped and videoed with kids lured from a children's home.

One boy has alleged he was tied up, forced to perform a sex act and made to watch men having sex.

A politician, top cop, judge and bishop are among those said to have been part of the ring between 1978 and 1982.

Police been here. this is horrific Police recently visited the address after Labour MP Tom Watson - speaking after the Jimmy Savile scandal - made claims in Parliament about a highranking child sex ring.


The property has since been converted into flats and there is no suggestion current owners or occupants are accused of wrongdoing.

A woman who has lived next door for a decade said: "Police have been here. No one wants to talk about why." Another neighbour said: "There have been a lot of whispers about what's alleged to have gone on. If true, it'd be horrific."

A Scotland Yard spokesman last night said: "Detectives are reviewing an allegation of historic sex abuse in west London."And Mr Watson added: "I've given all the information I have to police. I can't comment on specific aspects but I'm reassured they're doing all they can to uncover the truth."

Allegations over Elm Guest House - in a leafy south-west London suburb - first emerged at a 1990 inquest into the overdose suicide of its German manager Carole Kasir.

Child protection campaigners said at the hearing that in 1988 she told them boys from council-run Grafton Close home in nearby Hanworth had been taken to the guesthouse and abused.

Mrs Kasir had a 1982 conviction for running a brothel. But campaigners Mary Moss and Christopher Fay - both from the National Association of Young People in Care - said the manager had no idea at the time of the child sex abuse.

Mr Fay told the hearing Mrs Kasir had been horrified to later discover carehome boys were being supplied to paedophiles at her guesthouse.

After the inquest, he reportedly claimed Mrs Kasir showed him incriminating photos of alleged abusers.

A website Ms Moss appears to have set up contains more claims. One alleged victim, "Vincent S", says he was forced to carry out a sex act and had one performed on him. On a later date, two men are said to have had sex in front of him, then tied him up and made him watch a video.

Last night Mr Fay, who is expecting to be interviewed by police, said: "I stand by everything I said in 1990 at the inquest."

EDIT to re emphasize, this is part of the investigation into the elite paedophile ring Tom Watson highlighted in parliament. Again, children being taken from local care homes being taken by politicians and elite to a place to be abused.

Evidence in the making that our politicians, judges, policemen, bishops are abusing our vulnerable children yet again.

(I think this was originally posted on the main Savile thread,
I can't remember when, probably January 2013).

Mary Moss - Situation

I was issued with a search warrant on the 9th Jan for all doc’s relating to Carol Cazier………… I have had my flat swept by Op ‘you know who’ completely and professionally and in a very tidy organized and friendly manner.. I am now co-operating with them. I have been given my laptop back today but they still hold 19 NAYPIC boxes which I handed over to them today without hesitation..as I had them hidden in a friends.. for them just to check in case there is other related info..and one motherboard computer also which was ceased.. just to put other blogs at bay… with what really happened.. after I published all I have… which you now know.. I am not fair game to have my life intruded on in this way but I trust that in my line of duty to the case and the victims my life will still stay quite private.. other than my work.. as they are the only one’s who now know absolutely everything about me.. nice.

http://legalaidcuts.blogspot.co.uk/

From Needle,
11/01/2013.

So there you go, Mary Moss was not arrested as one blog wrongly suggested yesterday. She was visited by the police who had a search warrant. Her computer was taken but has since been returned. Actually, her phrase ‘co-operating’ with the police is misleading. She is pro-actively helping the Operation Fairbank team having talked to them.

I really would like readers of this blog to step back and put themselves in her shoes just for a moment.

Here is a woman who has dedicated her life to the protection of children. She now finds herself in the eye of the biggest political/media storm to hit this country (even if the MSM aren’t reporting it), actually that is not accurate, she’s been in the eye of this storm for the last two decades, only now everybody is starting to take notice.

She’s cooperated with two previous investigations which have been covered up, and she knows that witnesses have died suddenly.

Before criticising her for anything perhaps you should ask yourself how you’d feel right now if you were in here position.

I know I’d feel threatened, I’d feel paranoid, and I’d feel vulnerable.

Mary, if you read this then I’d like you to know that there are a large number of people, an overwhelming majority who support you and wish you well.

Take care.

No problem.

I'd saved most of it as Word Documents, but
forgot to add dates and links.

Will do my best to find the "originals" on the Savile thread,
and will link to them if, and when, I do find them.

It was a while ago!

Mistakes are still being made regarding "origins".
You only have to read Needle to notice Chris Fay forever
having to correct people.

So, in the interest of accuracy:

Re: Mary Moss documents

"I’d just like to correct one common misconception, these
documents were not written by Mary Moss, they were written
by Christopher Fay, a former NAYPIC advisory and John Oaks
a journalist friend of Mr Fay."

A great idea, it can be a nightmare searching for the earlier posts on the Savile thread, it's grown so big, far better now IMO to have them condensed here also, and also highlight just what OP Fernbridge HAVE NOT been doing, just so we - OR THEY - do not forget.

Ie Still not one single arrest in connection with the guest house.

I remember early on Moss' - brave lady - disillusionment and frustration at Police's - and the PM's - handling of the case which she put on her blog, these doubts, it is clear, are proving true;

Dec Newsflash.. NAYPIC WANTS TO MEET WITH PRIME MINISTER.. PANORAMA HELPS GET ANSWERS FROM RSA... WE WON A COURT VICTORY THIS WEEK...

The police from Hammersmith want to talk to us about the case of Carol Cazier who was killed whilst Mary Moss (AKA Jo Gavin & Jo Flores) was caseworker.
We said no. We will talk to the Government.
Message to the Prime Minister sent on Thursday 6th Dec 2012

Detective Sergeant Townly of the Met Police wishes to speak with me regarding historic issues of child abuse currently in the news concerning Carol Cazier and some M.P.s. I told them that I as the ex-worker in the case would prefer to meet with the PM or a senior Cabinet Minister to discuss these matters as I was an advocate for children not a case worker alone. These were sensitive matters subject to confidentiality and would be best deal with at more senior levels than simply being questioned by police who at the time were involved.

I hope you appreciate that NAYPIC would need some resources to deal with these matters again.

MARY MOSS


I am available today."

So she actually mentions the names of our two likely culprits!

This was the letter she sent to Cameron.

So the home office replied but said talk to the police!!!
This defies belief.

She is already thinking Operation Fairbanks is another cover up.

It well may be then."
Again,

"These were sensitive matters subject to confidentiality and would be best deal with at more senior levels than simply being questioned by police who at the time were involved."

-How many members of Fernbridge are connected to these past officers? Or are involved in some way?

How are Intelligence working to cover up the story, when their involvement was obviously the lynchpin from the get - go.

Another page number from Savile thread which may
be useful is from where the 'MM docs' were found
photographed by her on Moss' blog and analysed
henceforth from 6/1/13, p.1896.

The Guardian has yet to report on Elm House.

Can I make a suggestion, the next time Alan Rusbridger does a Q & A, we should bring it to his attention.

The Elm Guest House: How an Establishment paedophile network was covered up for 31 years

Quote:
The Elm Guest House story broke on 7th August 1982, when the Daily Express reported that “at least three MPs, a member of staff at Buckingham Palace, and leading lawyers, doctors and City businessmen” were questioned as part of inquires relating to “a vice ring” in “a brothel in a smart London suburb”.

Over the next 10 days more lurid allegations emerged in almost every national newspaper. A police raid on the guest house in Rocks Lane, Barnes, involving ‘up to 60 officers’ found ‘a huge store of pornographic material including video tapes’. ‘There were also whips, chains and ropes’. ‘There were two little boys being used as child prostitutes’. It was also revealed that Scotland Yard detectives were investigating the disappearance/murder of eight-year old Vishal Mehrotra and fifteen-year old Martin Allen in connection with the guest house.

These links are all the national news reports that I have found for those ten days about the Elm Guest House paedophile ring:

Daily Express (7.8.82)
News of the World (8.8.82)
Sunday Times (8.8.82)
Daily Express (9.8.82)
Daily Mail (9.8.82)
Daily Star (a) (9.8.82)
Daily Star (b) (9.8.82)
The Guardian (9.8.82)
The Sun (9.8.82)
The Times (9.8.82)
Daily Express (10.8.82)
Daily Star (10.8.82)
Daily Express (16.8.82)

After those initial 10 days of reporting there was nothing more in the papers. The reason for this silence is revealed in an article which appeared in Capital Gay magazine from August 1982.

Libel threats were used to silence the newspapers from reporting on the VIP paedophile ring. The Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers, personally investigated complaints from lawyers representing Elm Guest House.

Sir Michael Havers played a leading role in the Sir Peter Hayman cover-up, and told Geoffrey Dickens not to name the paedophile diplomat in Parliament. Havers argued that Hayman should have retained his anonymity, and didn’t think the British public needed to know that powerful Establishment figures abused children.

Scotland Yard denied the allegations made by the Daily Express that the guest house’s visitor list included three MPs and a member of Buckingham Palace staff. A spokesman for Elm Guest House told Capital Gay “these were professional business people. We are talking about barristers, doctors, a couple of priests and a vicar”.

We now know that these “professional people” were almost certainly all paedophiles. One of the barristers who visited Elm Guest House was Colin Peters QC, who was later jailed for his part in “Britain’s biggest child sex ring” which had over 150 victims.

It’s clear that Scotland Yard, Sir Michael Havers, and the Elm Guest House lawyers were all following the same script. It’s easy to blame the press for their part in the cover-up, but they were up against the most senior police and law officers in the country.

The most striking thing about the Capital Gay article is the strenuous denial of any link to the murder/disappearance of Vishal Mehrotra and Martin Allen, both of whom disappeared not far from Rocks Lane bewtween 1979 and 1981. Vishal Mehrotra went missing on the night of the Royal Wedding in 1981, when the Elm Guest House paedophiles were having a ‘Kings and Queens party’.

Capital Gay were the only media outlet to report on Elm Guest House for many years. It was a distinctly pro-paedophile paper, and was always first on the scene with paedophile news. They ran a story about an ‘Anti-Police Protection Fund’ which gave support to the beleagured paedophile brothel. Paul Rinehart, who was connected to the Elm Guest House paedophile ring, donated £1000 to the cause, and paid for a full page advert in Capital Gay.

They ran a series of articles which ended with the fixed Old Bailey trial in May 1983 in which most charges against the guest house owners, Haroon and Carole Kasir, were dropped, and the Kasirs walked away with just a fine. None of the prominent paedophiles were charged.

After 1983 there was nothing until 1990, when former guest house owner Carole Kasir died in highly suspicious circumstances from ‘an insulin overdose’. The coroner was the late Dr. John Burton, a ‘safe pair of hands’ who also presided over the Blair Peach and Lady Diana inquests. None of the newspapers who originally reported in 1982 ran a story on the inquest, other than the Times, who had run a denial of the allegations and therefore hadn’t received legal threats. This left the Sunday Mirror (who hadn’t reported in 1982 and were able to report), The Sport (which weren’t around in 1982), and local papers. So what would have been a massive story was kept relatively quiet, and headlines like this one from The Sport could be ignored because they came from a downmarket paper, and therefore most people would assume the allegations weren’t true:



Slough Observer (10.8.90)
The Sport (10.8.90)
Surrey Comet (10.8.90)
Sunday Mirror (12.8.90)
The Times (17.8.90)
The Sport (23.8.90)

After 1990 there was nothing reported for 22 years, when a new police investigation was launched following Tom Watson’s PMQ in October 2012.

In 2013 most UK newspapers are still silent about Elm Guest House. The ones that have reported on it are The Sunday People and The Mirror, with a handful of reports coming from The Mail and The Independent.

The Sun, The Times, The Sunday Times, and The Guardian are still silent, and are still complicit in a cover-up that has so far gone on for 31 years.

Elm Guest House: The History of a Cover-Up

If anyone has any doubt that there was a conspiracy to cover up child abuse at Elm Guest House, read this excerpt from a Daily Star article from 28th October 2012, just 4 days after Tom Watson’s PMQ about “a political paedophile ring”:

POLICE probing an underage sex ring at the heart of Maggie Thatcher’s government were warned: “Stop investigating if you want to keep your jobs.”

Officers in London were ­ inquiring into allegations made by a teenage rent boy that a Cabinet minister had been abusing him.

The youth claimed to be one of a number of boys regularly having sex with rich and powerful men in the 1980s – some of whom would fly to the illegal orgies from Europe.

As well as the Cabinet minister – who is still alive – he pointed the finger at judges, European bigwigs and senior civil servants.

He told his story to detectives, who are understood to have received other allegations against the minister.

But a former detective who worked on the case revealed they were ­suddenly told to halt the probe.

The furious ex-policeman said: “It wasn’t that we ran out of leads but it reached a point where a warning to stop came.

“It was a case of ‘get rid of everything, never say a word to anyone’. It was made very clear to me that to ­continue asking questions would ­jeopardise my career.”

Elm Guest House was reported for just 10 days in 1982:

Daily Express, 7th August 1982:

News of the World, 8th August 1982:



The next day, The Times printed a denial by Scotland Yard:

Daily Express, 9th August 1982:
(too large to post this one)

http://spotlightonabuse.files.wordpr..._1detail1.jpg?

Also on 9th August, The Sun printed the only story it would run on Elm Guest House. They still aren’t reporting on it in 2013:



Daily Express, 10th August 1982:



Daily Express, 16th August 1982:



The reason for the total silence after the initial 10 days of reporting was libel threats from Elm Guest House’s lawyers (paid for by ‘prominent people’ we can assume) combined with threats from Attorney General Sir Michael Havers. This is from Capital Gay magazine, 1st September 1982:

After this, apart from an oblique reference in 1984, I’ve found nothing in the UK media until 1990, when Carole Kasir, the former owner of Elm Guest House, died an ‘unexplained’ death. This is all the coverage I’ve found so far, I’m assuming the Express, Sun, Star, NOTW etc. were still silenced by the legal threats that were mentioned in the Capital Gay article.

After this there’s nothing that I’m aware of until Operation Fairbank was launched after Tom Watson’s PMQ in October 2012.

Sadly, most of the UK media STILL aren’t reporting on Elm Guest House after almost 31 years. Only Exaro News (internet only), the Sunday People and the Mirror are giving it serious coverage. The Mail and the Independent have run a handful of stories, the Guardian won’t touch it, nor will the BBC, Sky, or any of Murdoch’s papers.

http://spotlightonabuse.wordpress.co...february-1983/


Quote:
The Spartacus paedophile network was exposed by the Sunday People in February 1983

Elm Guest House adverts in Capital Gay mentioned a ‘Discount for Spartacus Members’, which is thought to have been a coded message to paedophiles which meant sex with children was on offer.

Spartacus started out as a mainstreeam gay organisation in 1969, but by the time John D. Stamford took over it was catering for paedophiles. This is evident from these newspaper cuttings from the 1980s:

- A letter to The Observer from 1980 describing Spartacus members as ‘a minority within a minority’

- A Guardian article from 1984 referring to Spartacus as “the international paedophile information network”

- The Sunday Times ran a story exposing Spartacus in 1986 called Scandal of Britons who buy young boys for £3 a night.

But the Sunday People were the first paper to run a story on Spartacus in February 1983, just eight months after the Elm Guest House raid. This makes it clearer than ever that visitors knew exactly what to expect when they went to Rocks Lane. The ‘I was there for adult gay sex’ excuse isn’t going to fool anyone.

As Dopey said Savile's name does not appear in the docs. However there are links. When I read that Guy Marsden is planning a book I was reminded of Harry Kasir's "strange behaviour" on hearing of Savile's death.

The Elm Story - Part One

Police revisit the grim mystery of Elm Guest House

There is no more ordinary-looking row of suburban
Edwardian houses in the country than Rocks Lane,
south-west London. But nowhere has given rise to
such an outlandish series of allegations than the one
formerly known as Elm Guest House. The claims are now
being re-investigated by the Metropolitan Police, decades
after they were first made. Attempts have been made by
care workers to lay bare the secrets of Rocks lane but to
no avail. Whatever the outcome of their investigations in the
past, the police seem convinced that a number of serious wrongs
need to be righted.

Rocks Lane is a conspiracy theorist’s dream, taking in
allegations of the grooming of young boys in care for
sex, elaborate gay parties involving senior public figures
including members of the Conservative Party, charges
of a police cover-up and even the suggestion of murder.
The police believe that in the context of the Jimmy Savile
scandal and renewed claims over the treatment of boys
in care in North Wales, there is every reason to look again
at an extremely murky saga.

A month ago, in conditions of the utmost secrecy
(so much so that nothing was even put on computers),
the Metropolitan Police set up Operation Fairbank, to look
into, among other things, allegations made by Tom Watson
in the House of Commons. The Labour MP had spoken of a
“powerful paedophile ring” and its links to a previous prime
minister’s “senior adviser”. Mr Watson has been
uncharacteristically diffident about speaking to journalists
on the issue since then, saying that he is passing on any
information to the police. He said yesterday: “I’m not seeking
to add any specific allegations myself, but hope that my
comments will help the authorities get to the bottom of this.”

What is known is that in the late 1970s, the Elm
Guest House on Rocks Lane was a safe, unthreatening
meeting place for homosexual men free from the stigma
of a sexual orientation legalised barely a decade earlier.
According to a former friend of Carole Kasir, the guest
house’s German-born manager, she initially regarded
herself as offering gay men an opportunity to “be
themselves” without fear. Rocks Lane, which overlooks
a playing field, was known to homosexual men as it is
close to Barnes Common, itself popular with gay men
for cruising.

But Elm Guest House’s willingness to accommodate
a small industry (“It became a convenient place for
rent boys to take their clients,” says one person
familiar with the place), began to attract the attentions
of the local police force. One neighbour remembers a
months-long police stakeout: “They were there all the
time. Police hiding behind the trees to look at the property
was a running joke with the neighbours.”

The Elm Story - Part Two

In 1982, the police learned that one of the guest house’s
parties was to take place, and the Met’s notorious Special
Patrol Group, the precursor of the Territorial Support Group,
duly raided the property, resulting in a number of charges
being brought against Kasir. The fact that two police officers
were in the house at the time of the raid has fed the
speculation. The IoS has established that, according
to an officer closely involved at the time, two officers
were embedded as guests in the property for two or three
days, one even pretending to have a broken arm, hiding
a police radio in a plaster cast to make secret recordings.
If there was a cover-up, it appears not to have involved
the local police force, who seem to have been assiduous
in seeking to have the place closed down.

As many as 12 boys gave evidence to the police to the
effect that they had been abused by men at the house,
The IoS has established, but the only conviction was the
comparatively minor one of running a disorderly house
(i.e, a brothel). “Abused boys do not always make
the most impressive of witnesses once they get into
the witness box,” someone involved in the case said.
“The real unlawful activity was underage sex. The police
should have been able to make the other charges stick,
but the boys were only ever interviewed with a view to
them being witnesses against Carole, not as kids who were
abused themselves.”

The place continued to attract speculation. Who was at
that party has never been established, but as time went
on, more and more allegations began to emerge about
Rocks Lane. The local police paved the way for the raid,
but at some stage Special Branch felt the need to get
involved. Why was that, some have asked, unless there
was something even murkier going on? Child-protection
campaigners alleged that boys had been taken from
a local council-run home and abused, a line of investigation
that police are now pursuing.

What makes the Rocks Lane story so tantalising for
the media is the list of alleged attendees at the parties.
One source suggested that Anthony Blunt, former keeper
of the Queen’s pictures and an exposed Soviet mole, used
to go the parties, but then Blunt’s notoriety made him
a magnet for any number of fanciful theories. Those who
knew him say the idea is absurd, and that his sexual tastes
were far more conventional. Others have spoken of two
High Court judges and a Foreign Office official attending.
Chris Fay, a social worker who worked for a small charity,
the National Association for Young People in Care (Naypic),
has alleged that a terrified Kasir had shown him about
20 photographs of middle-aged men with young boys,
taken at what he said were kings and queens fancy-dress
parties, attended by a number of powerful and well-known
people. One, Mr Fay alleged, featured a well-known public
figure wearing nothing but a French maid’s apron alongside
a young boy nude apart from a tiara.

In 1990, at the age of 47, Kasir was found dead in her flat.
The coroner’s inquest concluded that, a diabetic, she had
suffered an insulin overdose. Two Naypic employees told
the coroner they believed that because she seemingly had
not had an insulin injection for three days, she had been
murdered, the victim of powerful people who feared she
knew too much. Nonetheless, she was found to have
committed suicide, worn down by an eight-year battle
to have her son, who was taken into care after her
conviction, returned to her.

The Elm Story - Part Three

So was the story of Rocks Lane (now mercifully restored
to blameless respectability) just another one of consenting
adults “romping” behind lace curtains? Or was it qualitatively
different, involving something much nastier and more exploitative?
Since 1990, ineffectual efforts have been made to overturn this
vast stone. A reported 2003 “inquiry”, which ended up being
examined by the IPCC, foundered, frustratingly, on unsupported
evidence based on the wrong time frame. But now, with child abuse
no longer regarded as unthinkable, the climate seems to be changing.

Tom Watson’s Commons statement brought forward
a flood of emails from the public. Police have been
hindered by the loss of many documents and impassioned
but unverifiable testimony, much of which has surfaced
on the internet. The allegations deserving of most scrutiny,
though, have seemingly eluded the web. The two surviving
Naypic employees are reluctant to discuss the case, but it is
believed the police are interviewing what, tellingly, they now
refer to as “victims”, and are encouraging others to come forward.

The alleged presence of household names adds to the
intrigue, but in a celeb-obsessed age, there is a danger
that, should such names not materialise, Rocks Lane will
be seen as “just another” child abuse case. Yet police
sources fear that dozens of boys were either taken or on
the run from care homes to be abused. By any standards,
that should be a big story.

The net widens

The scandal of abuse at care homes in North Wales,
including Bryn Estyn, was reawakened following the
Jimmy Savile allegations.

Reports of abuse – involving in the region of 300 children,
mainly in the 1970s and 1980s – first led Clwyd Council
to commission a report into failings. But the Jillings report
was never published, and, amid rumours of a botched police
investigation, the Waterhouse report was commissioned.
It named 200 abusers, or those who failed to protect children,
but was seen as a whitewash after no prosecutions resulted.

Victims of child abuse in Northern Ireland are still waiting
for an inquiry into abuse at Catholic church and state-run
institutions between 1973 and 1989. It followed the Ryan
report in the Republic of Ireland, which found that sexual
and psychological abuse was “endemic” in Catholic-run
schools and orphanages for most of the 20th century.

In 2010, a three-year investigation into child abuse in Jersey
led to seven people being convicted for a series of assaults
they inflicted on children, mainly at the Haut de la Garenne
home, from the 1970s onwards. Police took 1,776 statements
from 192 alleged victims during the course of their inquiry.

Many victims there believe more abuse remains uncovered.
An investigation into claims that Savile had abused girls
in Jersey was launched last month.
