It is with great pleasure that i inform you all that Today the 2nd of October 2012 that a press release was given out by Pannone Solicitors. http://www.pannone.com
This press release refers to the action to be taken against Derek Sawyer former Labour leader of the Islington Borough Council, and the former Chairman of the London Regional Courts Boards as well as chairman for Catch 22 and other organisations.
Derek Sawyer is being held accountable for his knowledge and cover up of the abuse of children in India.
We as former Victims of Derek Slade whom Sawyer assisted through the years to abuse children here in the UK and abroad and also helped cover up the Islington Child Abuse cases within Islingtons council run childrens homes are pleased that this vile man is finally being held accountable for his knowledge of the crimes that Derek Slade did.
Finborough School- the marketing movie:
But the continuation of the denials, perpetually ignoring the pupils and what your school and its staff (either past or present) did to us shows you don’t adhere to the words of the school’s principles and shows a complete and utter lack of integrity. You can put a new name one it (like lipstick on a pig), sure call it Finborough School as you have for so very long. But until its past is owned, you’ll never truly move forward.
Charles Dickens wrote”
“how I could have been so easily cast away at such an age”
The most famous social critic of his time pointed out the plight of the child in that age – the child who was without benefit of societal protection. How many of us have been touched by the urchin faces of Dickens’ illustrations over the centuries?
The infamous villains whose names alone conjured up evil and greed
Sikes, Quilp, Creakle, Scrooge and Squeers- but were Dickens alive today how he would have told the tale of SLADE and portrayed the children not of the 1800′s but of the 1980″ and beyond – children whose lives were forever changed
Their innocence torn from them , their expectations crippled because of perversion , cruelty, greed and enabling of acts so outrageous upon a child it sickens one and yet it took 30 years for the children to finally be heard.
Derek Slade was finally brought to court for his vile nature two years ago this month his case made national headlines in the UK :
Pervert boarding school headmaster jailed for 21 years for abusing pupils
Slade’s victims had ‘lost days of childhood innocence’, been left with feelings of inadequacy, blame and worthlessness and become men whose ‘lives were seriously damaged’.
A jury found Slade, of Staffordshire, guilty of sexually assaulting and beating 12 boys aged between eight and 13 between 1978 and 1983 following a four-week trial at Ipswich Crown Court.
Jurors heard that Slade, who has no teaching qualifications, ran St George’s private school,
but what of the others who were part of St. George’s School – justice???
Some of the teachers have left the country, others committed suicide. Two are serving prison sentences ……..
and the financial backing of Mr. John Sinclair
( noted as the ADMISSIONS OFFICER)
Mr. Sinclair seems to have had a “hands on approach” http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/principal_follows_in_father_s_footsteps_1_87632
and has run foul of the law for having a hands on-
A SUFFOLK public school principal found guilty of beating a dog walker with his hiking stick is unlikely to lose his job, it emerged today.
John Sinclair, owner and principal of the independent Finborough School, was ordered yesterday to pay a fine, compensation and prosecution costs totalling £900.
had denied, but was found guilty of assault by beating on September 24 last year after hitting a fellow dog walker after their dogs clashed.
Mr. Sinclair and his family are still heavily involved in the NOW Finborough School- Note the name change from St. George’s Finborough to THE Finborough School-
BUT the building where so much childhood terror and perversion took place is still welcoming pupils. One has to wonder does not Mr. Sinclair ever hear the cries of the children as abuse was heaped upon their little bodies echoing through the rooms that held such torment for those young boys. A building that was once a workhouse in its past now also holds the history of depravity.
His own children are part of the NOW “Finsborough family”
Sweeping green lawns , photos in local papers and the net proclaiming its worthiness to educate the young – the whole building is “dressed “ the school marketed professionally- but there is a disease of perversion that perfumes the atmosphere of those not so hallowed halls that needs to be eradicated – its history will continue to haunt – no matter how they dress it up -
The new heraldry cannot “shield” the past – the schools and the people are linked no matter what Wikipedia etc state- as evidenced here
You can read the account of one of the school’s children here
Another pupil of the “Children of Slade”, himself one of England’s warriors stated:
If you want to fix and cover up something – then you OWN IT”
You can read about the ongoing fight for justice and recognition of their past here:
Who Could Be Worse Than The Roman Catholic Church? A Company called Anglemoss Ltd!!-Finborough School-a Company called Anglemoss Ltd.
There is also a face book page set up
TW NOTE: So why does a woman in Ohio care? Apart from the obvious disgust that this happened and the pain caused to children- my mother and her family are from Ipswich- I have happy memories of Suffolk, picnics laughter cousins , aunts and uncles – wonderful memories unlike the children of Slade .
My immediate family is still part of the Suffolk community, they do business, document daily lives for readers, document our own history, their children and grandchildren are part of the fabric that is England. The names of the places , the buildings all too familiar… this disgrace is part of that fabic.
The parents of children now attending this school should be asking the hard questions and demanding the children of St George’s be recognised – A St George’s School by any other name( The Finborough School) is still St. Georges The children who lost themselves at the hands of abuse, who toiled, wept , who received no recognition of their pain in those very rooms of the now Finborough School where their children walk – are still waiting
As readers of this blog know “it is all about “accountability” All too often scum rises to the top of the pond in this world – it is time for the voices of those children reaching out across the miles, and years to now be heard! You see I believe if you “IGNORE the abuse of children – you OWN it too!”
