Appeal to Scarborough residents to assist historic sexual abuse investigation

North Yorkshire Police are asking people from the Scarborough area to come forward with any information about the late Peter Jaconelli – a prominent local businessman and former Mayor of Scarborough – as part of an ongoing investigation into historic sexual abuse.

The request for information, be it from potential victims or those with knowledge relating to allegations about Mr Jaconelli, follows last week’s announcement by North Yorkshire Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner that it has referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

Recent publicity has identified a number of people who say they were victims of Mr Jaconelli when they were younger.

North Yorkshire Police is keen to identify possible other victims and is also appealing for any information that could assist the inquiry.

A police spokesman said: “Anyone who believes they have been a victim of Peter Jaconelli, or has relevant information and who has not recently contacted North Yorkshire Police, are asked to do so as soon as possible.

“It is important that victims are able to access the specialist support services that are readily available, and that we gather all the evidence in respect of this matter. ”

Victims and people with information are urged to call North Yorkshire Police 101, select option 1, and pass details to the Force Control Roomquoting “Operation Hibiscus”.

Information can also be emailed to MajorCrimeUnit@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk using the title “Operation Hibiscus”.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to remain anonymous, please pass information to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, again quoting “Operation Hibiscus”.

As outlined last week, the referral to the IPCC relates to how North Yorkshire Police responded to an allegation it received over a decade ago about Jimmy Savile (who died in October 2011) and about several allegations made recently about Savile’s friend, Mr Jaconelli, who died in 1999.

It also relates to whether any information it held on record about Savile or his known associates was properly and comprehensively disclosed to Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary (HMIC) when it, and other police forces in England and Wales, were asked to do so by HMIC in December 2012 and again by the IPCC in May last year.

    I know about some historic sexual abuse in Scarborough, but not connected to this case. What can I do? Who can I tell?

    Another step forwards in this disturbing investigation. The are a number of issues here which should anger any decent person. For a start, it is disgusting that Saville, Jaconelli and goodness knows how many other abusers got away with their horrific behavior for such a long time. It is a stain on the reputation of the town that youngsters were abused over a long period of time yet nobody with sufficient ‘clout’ spoke out. Surely somebody knew about this other than those directly involved. Perhaps the most disappointing and worrying aspect of this whole nauseating situation is that the very people who are paid and entrusted to protect the vulnerable failed to do their duty, in my opinion. I believe this is evidenced by the referral to the IPCC. Thanks to the determined and fastidious endeavors of the journalists at The Real Whitby, the long hand of the law may finally be unfurling its talons and heading in the direction of the perpetrators of these horrendous crimes.

      Dear Tim,

      Thank you for your kind comments.

      I very much regret to say that I have to agree with everything you have written.

      Our evidence is that there was a paedophile ring operating in Scarborough involving Savile and others from 1960 onwards. Some of these people may still be alive. Our information is that the police knew all about Jaconelli from the 1950’s onwards and knew about Savile from at least the 1970’s.

      Best regards,

      Tim

    Devon & Cornwall Police in Plymouth
    have known for decades
    that duty solicitor Alan Harris,
    of Alan Harris Solicitors,
    has been blackmailing clients into sex,
    because they arrested him in a public toilet
    with a 15 year old boy.

    A major cover-up is in place.

    A target of Alan Harris’s attentions
    has made a video,
    which gives some vile and disgusting details.

    No injunction has been received,
    and I will be putting my head on the block again,
    by exposing Alan Harris with signs.

    Last time,
    I was run through a rigged kangaroo court,
    denied access to the main witnesses,
    in an ‘ambush’
    that denied all Natural Justice.

    If anyone wishes to help,
    an email to be sent to the solicitor’s office
    contain a number of important questions
    that Alan Harris needs to be asked.

    Best wishes to Real Whitby –
    an inspiration to activists everywhere!

    Zen 🙂

    Mr Allan HARRIS – Solicitor – Plymouth

    IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST

    Allan,

    You are no doubt aware of the flagrant allegations presently circulating, on the internet and throughout the social media sites, concerning you and your extramural activities.

    I am an amateur investigative-journalist. I contribute to the Real Whitby Magazine – a blog/news-site located in Whitby, North Yorkshire.

    Pursuant to evidence provided to me, I am intending to run an article about the allegations made against you.

    Would you please be so good as to offer a comment for publication. I would appreciate an acknowledgement to this email, and copy (if any), not exceeding 500 (five hundred) words, no later than 5:00pm on Friday 11th April 2014. Specifically, do you deny multiple allegations that you have habitually exploited your position of trust to coerce clients into sexual acts with you?

    Yours, with very kind regards,

    Nigel
