There have been distinct stirrings from the once-moribund Hollie Greig hoaxers’ camp of late, most notably from Robert Green.
Readers will recall that Mr Green gained a small amount of national prominence a few weeks back, when it was revealed in a Sunday Times article that Chief Constable Veale of the Wiltshire Police had contacted him in relation to Mr Veale’s attempts to skewer Sir Edward Heath, post mortem:
The police chief in charge of the sex abuse inquiry into the former prime minister Ted Heath has been in personal email contact with a campaigner who was jailed for harassing people he falsely accused of paedophilia, The Sunday Times can reveal.
Mike Veale, the chief constable of Wiltshire, emailed Robert Green, of Warrington, two weeks ago in response to an email Green had sent him. Veale wrote: “As ever thank you Robert.”
The words suggest the pair had communicated previously and will cast fresh doubt on the evidence that Veale’s force has gathered, which the chief constable has reportedly described as “120% convincing” that Heath was a paedophile.
Green is an activist closely involved with fraudulent allegations in Scotland in the so-called Hollie Greig case, in which claims that a girl with Down’s syndrome had been abused were found to be false. He was jailed for 12 months in 2012 for harassment.
Lord Macdonald, the former director of public prosecutions, said: “It seems strange that, during a live sex-crime investigation, the chief constable is communicating with someone who has previously been jailed for making false sex-crime allegations against people.”
As one might imagine, Mr Green was not delighted at being described as a conspiraloon and liar [There’s a difference? —Ed.], and so wrote an “open letter” on David Icke’s web page, which we are certain the editors of The Times scour regularly, looking for hidden journalistic gems. In this, he explained that the Holliehoax WAS TOO real, and he had letters from various people that proved it, etc. and so on and so forth.
A few days later, a letter which appeared to have been written by Mr Green appeared in the Comments section of the excellent Barth’s Notes blog:
Now that Chief Constable Mike Veale has published his report on Operation Conifer, with his customary display of dignity, professionalism and clarity, it may be an appropriate time for me to disclose some details of my limited involvement in the investigation.
As readers may be aware, the Chief Constable and I were recently subjected to a nasty, poorly-researched and inaccurate attack by the Heath-supporting Sunday Times. It included a cowardly and baseless smear against the evidence of Hollie Greig, undeniably a brave victim of multiple sexual abuse.
Despite being furnished with all the independent expert and police evidence fully supporting Hollie, the ST was thus gutter journalism of the lowest kind.
I suspected that I was included in the attack, which was primarily aimed at undermining the gallant Chief Constable, because of the quality of the evidence that I had been able to relay to him, during the course of our correspondence.
This is how it all came about.
Over seven years ago, following the publicity surrounding the unlawful arrest and imprisonment I suffered in Aberdeen over Hollie`s case, I was invited to meet Dr Joan Coleman, a specialist in the field of child and ritual sexual abuse of impeccable reputation. Amongst other details, including some relating to Jimmy Savile and Cyril Smith, she offered some evidence about Sir Edward Heath. Although I was naturally not party to any depth of information, I did learn that evidence against Sir Edward had been provided by no fewer than five witnesses, all of them totally independent of each other.
I can say that due to the consistency of aspects of the content of the various statements, it would be impossible to deny that such evidence must be wholly credible.
Now, here in October 2017, it is interesting to recall that had I not been snatched from an Aberdeen street in February 2010, it is possible to imagine that such valuable evidence would never have seen the light of day.
In the meantime, I do ask readers to continue their support for Chief Constable Mike Veale and his team, who will have done much to restore public confidence in the police`s determination to investigate serious allegations of sexual crimes against children, without fear or favour.
Now that Mr Green seems to have found a police ally in Chief Constable Veale, it looks as though he’s getting just a little cocky, and has (as we predicted) decided to take another kick at the can.
After all, why not? He’s been mentioned in the country’s “newspaper of record”; he’s become chummy with his very own lantern-jawed, pink-skinned, shiny-shoed policeman, who writes to him respectfully and asks him what he thinks about Satanic abuse and things; and he’s been out of prison a good while and has forgotten what porridge tastes like.
A couple of days ago, someone named “Jane” called a phone-in radio show on LBC to harangue the on-air host about the Hollie Greig case. He seemed politely nonplussed, and said he’d “have to look into that”—we’re sure he was making frantic slashing gestures to his technicians, urging them to move the mad bint off the air so he could go on with his show.
Mr Green somehow caught wind of this incident, and has written to the host himself to follow up:
From: Robert Green
Sent: 23 October 2017 19:02
Subject: Hollie Greig case
With regard to your recent call from Jane, you mentioned on air that you would look at this issue further. As the initial campaigner on this horrific case, I should be very pleased to assist you with any further information, including independent expert witness evidence, including supportive documentatiofor [sic] Hollie from the police.
Unfortunately for LBC, your colleague Alex Salmond is heavily implicated in concealing the case, having been found on 26 May 2011 by the Information Commissioner of twice breaching the law in trying to cover up the Hollie Greig case.
Moreover, Mr Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon came within 24 hours of facing a criminal charge of contempt of court on 11 July 2011, for continuing to ignore Commissioner Kevin Dunion`s ruling. I am also in possession of a letter sent on behalf of Mr Salmond dated 14 February 2014, in which your colleague attempts to deceive his own constituency secretary, Neil Bailie over his proven breaches of the law.
This is a cover up case of Jimmy Savile proportions and I trust that you will allow your listeners to learn of the true facts behind this case.
My cooperation with LBC on this matter is assured.
To those who might be thinking right now, “But doesn’t this violate his gagging order?” we would say, “Yes. Yes, it does”.
And that is why we have forwarded the link and a screenshot to the relevant authorities. Sadly for Mr Green, the police department to which we’ve sent this material is not located in Wiltshire, they have not been on a strange and misguided witch-hunt against a dead man, and they don’t consider Mr Green an expert in anything save harassing and slandering innocent individuals.
Tough rocks, that.
