A couple of days ago we discussed the case of the Musas—a case of horrific child abuse linked to the belief in witchcraft—and pointed out that so-called ‘child protection activists’ Belinda McKenzie and Sabine McNeill had come down squarely on the side of the abusive parents.
Similarly, when we read last week that convicted child sexual abuser Marie Black’s application to appeal her conviction had been dismissed, we were reminded of the support given Black by people with close ties to the promoters of the Hampstead hoax.
‘The most harrowing case I have dealt with’
You’ll likely recall that last summer, Marie Black stood trial along with 9 others, including 5 women, at Norwich Crown Court: [Please note that the following information is very disturbing, and may be difficult to read if you’ve suffered from abuse.]
During the trial, the prosecutor stated that over a period of 10 years, Black had used the 5 children as “sexual playthings”. During the trial, the full horror of the abuse was revealed.
The abuse, which is said to have happened in and around Norwich and London, included forcing the children to have sex with one another.
On some occasions, the adults threw parties and played card games to decide who would abuse which child, Mrs Rafferty said.
In interviews the victims described how they were abused in front of one another and other adults.
Some of the abuse involved children’s toys, including Barbie dolls.
Of the 10 people charged, 4 were found guilty:
Black denied 26 charges. A jury found her guilty of all but three counts.
She was convicted of offences including rape and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. Two men were found guilty of child sex abuse and another woman was found guilty of assault.
Michael Rogers, 53, from Romford, was found guilty of 14 counts including cruelty, rape and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
Jason Adams, 43, from Norwich, was convicted of 13 similar counts.
Carol Stadler, 60, from Atkinson Close, Bowthorpe, Norwich, was found guilty of assault causing actual bodily harm but cleared of nine other charges, including serious sexual assaults.
Following the conviction, the Senior Investigating Officer, DCI Peter Hornby, stated,
In their tender years, these children were subjected to sexual abuse beyond most people’s imagination by adults they believed were telling the truth. It is the most harrowing case I have dealt with in 23 years of policing. [Emphasis ours]
Links to the conspiraloon community
As Scarlet Scoop pointed out shortly after the trial, one of the accused, Carol Stadler, was listed on Facebook as a friend of conspiritainment provider Brian Gerrish.
Perhaps even more horrifying are the links between convicted child sexual abuse ringleader Marie Black and people like Ian Josephs and Telegraph columnist Christopher Booker—both of whom have been lauded by Sabine McNeill and Belinda McKenzie as inspirational paragons in their ongoing battle to prevent any state intervention whatsoever in the lives of families.
In her excellent article titled Helping Parents Leave the Jurisdiction, family lawyer Sarah Phillimore describes how Ian Josephs, who advocates families leaving the UK to avoid having children removed by Social Services, and “openly admits giving cash to parents to help them leave the country”, is known to have assisted Marie Black when she fled to France in order to keep her baby.
In 2012, Christopher Booker wrote:
In France there were tears of joy when Marie Black and Joe Ollis were reunited with their baby daughter Luna, born in France in February but then seized by Norfolk social workers, to be brought back to England to live in foster care. Although this action had been sanctioned by a British court, a High Court judge ruled in May that the seizure was illegal, because Luna was born in France and was therefore outside UK jurisdiction.
Grateful for Ian Josephs’ assistance, Black herself wrote this letter:
We hope you are well.
Attached is a recent photo for you of Luna, she will be 10 months old this thursday and is trying to walk already! She is so happy and laughs so much. We feel lucky everyday to have Luna home with us and we are looking forward to her 1st Christmas.
We get on well with the social worker here and she took us swimming last week and this week will be a baby group. She is also looking into if she knows anyone who can help us with French lessons too.
She commented on how happy Luna is! We have even been to see Mr Mondin the manager of social services who helped us in Court with a shining report and he has a photo of Luna on his desk, he was so happy to see us all together last week.
Thank you again in our rescue operation! [Emphasis ours]
Marie, Joe & Luna.
Josephs continues to display this and another equally glowing letter from Black on his website.
In interviews, Josephs has confirmed that he’s spent approximately £30,000 helping approximately 200 families leave the jurisdiction. He’s stated that he keeps no records, and has never conducted any sort of risk assessment to determine whether the children of these families might be in danger, nor indeed whether they are abused once they’ve left the UK.
Sabine has adoringly described Josephs as “the veteran of all McKenzie Friends, as he has observed an estimated 50,000 cases in over 50 years”.
Ian Josephs coined the term ‘forced adoption‘ and published a book with that title besides the website Forced Adoption which I revamped into “Punishment without Crime”. I wanted you to see all his gems more easily and be kept up-to-date about this scandalous subject.
Yet on the subject of Josephs’ having assisted convicted child rapist Marie Black in having access to a baby girl, Sabine and Belinda remain curiously silent. Similarly, they have nary a discouraging word to say about Christopher Booker, who crusaded in print on behalf of the convicted child abuser.
Granted, Black was not a convicted child rapist at the time Josephs helped her; but allegations against her began in 2010—2 years before her joyful reunion with her daughter, as described by Booker, above.
But never mind: Josephs has stated that “he does ‘not care’ if the parents have done anything to justify intervention. Because forced adoption is wrong and that justifies his actions. ‘ I don’t care who it is. They have every right to escape’”.
We’re quite certain that Josephs’ loyal disciples, Belinda and Sabine, would have no quarrel with this argument.
