Justice Secretary linked to Lord Advocate's lawyers after Police arrest journalist over reporting of Aberdeen Paedophile gang claims

Robert GreenJournalist & Broadcaster Robert Green was arrested by Grampian Police on Friday. SCOTLAND’s CROWN OFFICE are said to be heavily involved in the arrest in Aberdeen on Friday of the well known England based journalist & broadcaster Robert Green, who travelled to the Grampian area late Thursday to attend a public protest against the lack of action by Scotland’s law enforcement agencies to prosecute identified individuals in an Aberdeen based paedophile gang, names which include key members of Scotland’s legal establishment and even a local Sheriff, who stand accused of serial abuse of disabled victims, including downs syndrome girl, Hollie Greig.

Grampian PoliceGrampian Police arrested journalist on ‘breach of the peace’. Grampian Police apparently swooped on Mr Green before he was even able to attend Friday’s planned protest, taking him into custody earlier in the morning on a charge of breach of the peace, which Mr Green had been detained on, until his appearance tomorrow (Monday) at Aberdeen Sheriff court, where ironically, Mr Green will be taken before a colleague of a Sheriff who was identified by one of the abuse victims as being an alleged member of the paedophile gang at the centre of the case, who are accused of abusing disabled victims & also passing vulnerable children around their ranks.

The Firm - Hollie Greig 2 CensoredLord Advocate & Crown Office censored online legal publication “The Firm” from reporting on abuse case. Scottish Law Reporter have covered the story of Hollie Greig on previous occasions, HERE, secondly, revealing Scots Law magazine “The Firm” were censored by the Crown Office HERE, thirdly, revealing that a private law firm had been tasked by the Lord Advocate to threaten & censor media investigations of the case HERE and most recently, where the Crown Office announced they would not prosecute the case, HERE

Peter WatsonSenior Levy McRae partner Peter Watson acted against media outlets for the Lord Advocate. The case alarmed Crown Office officials and even the Lord Advocate of Scotland so much, a heavyweight law firm based in Glasgow, Messrs Levy McRae were brought in to threaten any media outlet who dare report on the allegations or identify anyone named by the victim and her mother, or involved the Grampian Police investigation. Mr Green recently alleged the investigation carried out by Grampian was very far from incomplete, apparently having omitted to interview many or all of the chief suspects, and victims.

Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskillJustice Secretary Kenny MacAskill linked to Lord Advocate’s choice of lawyers. Amazingly, it can now be revealed the Scottish Government’s current Justice Secretary, Kenny MacAskill has long standing ties to Levy McRae, the same law firm used by the Lord Advocate to threaten media publication of the Hollie Greig case. Mr MacAskill is now known to have served his apprenticeship at Levy McRae and also worked at the firm for a considerable time during his years as a solicitor.

Levy & McRae letter on behalf of Lord AdvocateLevy McRae sent out legal threats to websites, newspapers, & online forums. Mr MacAskill could not be contacted for any comment on developments in the case, and officials said he would not answer any questions over his previous involvement with Levy McRae. However, several MSPs alerted to the fact the Lord Advocate has used the same firm which once employed the Justice Secretary himself, have now vowed to investigate the goings on in the Hollie Greig case. An aide to an MSP today said there may well be a problem for the Justice Secretary since the Lord Advocate has used his old law firm, throwing up the question of conflict of interest and whether the intervention against the media by Levy McRae “may have implied Scottish Government support for the law firm’s work on behalf of the Lord Advocate.”

Anne GreigHolly Greig with her mother Anne – forced to flee to England after abuse. Since the journalist’s arrest by Grampian Police on Friday, reports of Mr Green, and his work investigating the allegations into the Aberdeen based paedophile ring have spread around the internet, along with a sequence of video clips of a talk the journalist gave to audiences on his work and the allegations into the abuse which had taken place in the Aberdeen area, leaving many to question why Scotland’s Crown Office had stamped on any chance of mounting prosecutions against people well known in the area who have been identified by one of the abuse victims, Hollie Greig, who, despite no one being charged after a Police investigation into the abuse claims, received £13,500 compensation (hush money ? – Ed) from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority in April of 2009.

Hollie has been described by a Grampian detective inspector who himself gave evidence, as “a truthful witness to the best of her ability and an entirely innocent victim”, and medical evidence has apparently verified that Hollie has been abused.

Grampian Police are now known to have received hundreds of calls from people all over the United Kingdom and around the world, concerned for Mr Green’s wellbeing. It has also been revealed today that Anne Greig, Hollie’s mother has not been allowed to speak to Mr Green to establish if he is ok, or has the necessary legal representation for his court appearance on Monday.

Aberdeen’s Press & Journal newspaper reported on Mr Green’s arrest :

Robert Green‘Sex abuse’ family’s legal adviser arrested

CAMPAIGNER WAS GOING TO HAND OUT LEAFLETS
BY RYAN CRIGHTON

Published: 13/02/2010

The legal adviser to the family of a disabled woman who claims she was abused by a paedophile ring as a child was arrested yesterday as he made his way to the centre of Aberdeen to hand out leaflets.

Political hopeful Robert Green represents the mother of Hollie Greig, a 30-year-old woman with Down’s Syndrome who says she was sexually assaulted by a Scottish sheriff, who is still serving, and a senior Grampian Police officer who is now dead.

Last night, 63-year-old Mr Green was charged with breach of the peace. He is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Monday. It is understood he was arrested as he made his way to Union Street, where he was going to tell people about Hollie’s case and his plans to contest the Aberdeen South parliamentary seat as an independent candidate.

Mr Green, of Cheshire, had been staying at a bed and breakfast in King Street. He was expected in Union Street near the Marks and Spencer store at 10.30am but never arrived. Other “injustice” campaigners, including Aberdeen man David Emslie, formerly of Nigg Kirk Road, were waiting for Mr Green and said they were concerned for his safety when he did not appear.

Grampian Police later confirmed Mr Green was in custody. A spokesman said: “A 63-year-old man has been charged in connection with a breach of the peace. “As this case is now active, it would be inappropriate to make any other comment.” Police, with the consent of Mr Green, searched his room in King Street and are believed to have left with documents belonging to him.

Hollie claims she was abused for 14 years from the age of six and has given police the names of some of the men she says assaulted her. The 30-year-old and her mother, Anne, have been campaigning for criminal proceedings since 2000.

The abuse is alleged to have taken place in Aberdeen, and Hollie and her mother claim to have made a statement at Bucksburn police station in July that year naming those involved. The family moved to Shropshire and two Grampian Police officers travelled to Shrewsbury in September last year to re-interview Hollie at a special facility.

Last month, the Crown Office revealed there was not enough reliable evidence to proceed with the case.

A spokesman said at the time: “Historical allegations of sexual abuse made by a 30-year-old woman in Shropshire have been thoroughly investigated by police. “Crown counsel have considered all the available information and decided that there is insufficient credible, reliable and admissible evidence to justify criminal proceedings in respect of these allegations.”

Despite no charges ever being brought, Hollie received £13,500 compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority in April last year. It is understood that followed evidence from a Grampian detective inspector, who described Hollie as “a truthful witness to the best of her ability and an entirely innocent victim”. Mrs Greig, 58, claims her daughter has experienced nightmares and panic attacks since she first told her about the alleged abuse.

Breach of the peace (Scotland)

"Where something is done in breach of public order or decorum which might reasonably be expected to lead the lieges being

* alarmed or
* upset or
* tempted to make reprisals at their own hand, the circumstances are such to amount to a breach of the peace."

Are the Crown Office alarmed,upset or afraid Mr Green will reveal abuse the Police are not being allowed to prosecute ?

I hope Mr Green gets out alive.The monkeys in charge have a habit of locking up those who expose their wrongdoings.

From working alongside Kenny MacAskill as a trainee, to the jungles of Venezuela and all the way to the top prize at Cannes, screenwriter Paul Laverty packed up his pen, took his passion, and made it happen.

He says it was an accident, and certainly not the result of any planning on his part, but whether by default or design, Paul Laverty has made the leap out of the nine to five that surely comes as close as any to wish fulfilment. From once sharing an office with Kenny MacAskill at Levy and Macrae, now he writes movie scripts for Hollywood. Two otherwise identical careers could hardly have diverged further, and as de facto partner of legendary director Ken Loach, renowned for pitch perfect social realism, he is arguably doing his own bit for justice, albeit in a very different way from his former workmate.

The dirty filthy Paedophile Police force Grampian Police had a heavy Police presence at Stonehaven Sheriff Court yesterday when Robert Green appeared from three days in custoday, and was heard in a closed court. Gastapo style justice, or Communist show trials.
They will do everything they can to protect the Paedophile Buchanan and his Paedophile ring. The Paedophile Police Force had a dirty Paedophile undercover piece of vermin hiding in a lane opposite the Stonehaven Sheriff Court yesterday when Robert Green appeared in court, he told supporters he was a resident waiting a delivery, probably a delivery of other dirty paedophile Police Officers, or Paedophile friends of Buchannan, the Chief Constable, the Lord Advocate, MacAskill, or from the Procurator Foscals Office in Aberdeen. They lock up the whistleblower confiscate evidence, but for ten years refuse to interview the Paedophiles that abused Hollie Greig. And what are all our wonderful MSPs and MPs doing, running for cover, or telling us that they cannot interven in legal matters, but look what the Deputy First Minister did last week with a fraudster in Glasgow. Our MPs and MSPs are all complicit in helping cover up this Paedophile Ring in Aberdeen.

Aberdeen Press & Journal 16th February 2010. Mr Robert Green appeared at Stonehaven Sheriff Court and appeared in Court from custody, held three days in sustody for a breach of the peace.
A Court hearing in private, what are the Paedophiles in the Police, Judiciary,Legal Profession, Procurator Fiscals Office, Aberdeen Sheriff Court, the Lord Advocate, the Government trying to hide, it is the Paedophilia that they all know about, and many of them are involved in that is now catching up with them in the evidence that Robert Green has which they are now trying to suppress. The Aberdeen Paedophile Ring involves some of the most senior Police, more than one Sheriff, and the whole Legal System in Aberdeen and Scotland.

Just read Mr Watson's full profile.He seems to enjoy a fight and thinks nothing of stepping on people.I suggest he be given a taste of his own medicine.

Also as Justice Minister MacAskill worked for their firm put his head on posters about the case if the lawyers want to imply he is giving them his support.

Its funny you should mention that but anyway here is some advice.

If Levy McRae have asked the Police to investigate or arrest everyone posting material on the Hollie Greig case, they are going to have a long task ahead of them, as there are over 1 million references in Google now.

If you are threatened by Levy McRae, or the Police in connection with remarks or posts, and if charges are brought, you would be wise to cite as witnesses, staff of "The Firm" law magazine (http://www.firmmagazine.com/), who first reported the Hollie Greig case, and started the ball rolling on current events which have led to Mr Green's arrest, and wild threats by law firms against anyone that moves.

Do remember, if witnesses you cite are of the 'reluctant variety to attend in court' they can be compelled to attend, after all if you do have any problems over it, I would be guessing its a criminal matter, right ?

Just remember who exactly started the reports in the media on the Hollie Greig case and I have no doubt they will end up having to make an appearance in any case against Mr Green, which seems likely (or not ?) given his arrest, and subsequent bail.

It will be interesting to see how "The Firm" and its many legal personalities justify what they said in their initial reports, despite their later apology & retraction, as of course, their coverage must have bearing on Mr Green's defence presentation.

Hope that helps.
