Hicks’ SAVILE probe makes Sunday Express again!

For the second week running, the Sunday Express (see today’s issue, Sunday 9th June 2013) features an article corroborating important elements of the Tim Hicks “Operation Countryman II” investigation into an alleged paedophile-ring in Scarborough.

Entitled “Jimmy Savile photograph proves he took out Rampton patients”, the article is reproduced below. Stopping short of naming Savile’s companions, it describes how Savile took a group of Rampton patients to Scarborough, where they met Savile’s mother Agnes (‘The Duchess’), enjoyed a pleasure boat ride, visited an ice cream parlour and an amusement arcade, had tea with the Lord Mayor and posed for a group photograph in the Town Hall grounds. This corroborates the findings of Tim Hicks, as published on Real Whitby earlier this year.

Although the names of the proprietors of the ice cream parlour and the amusement arcade are not disclosed, Savile’s Rampton excursions took place in 1971 and 1972 (when Peter Jaconelli was Mayor) – some years after the abuses alleged by Councilor Geoff Evans and Mr Trevor Harrington – leaving little doubt as to their identities. Peter Jaconelli’s sexual proclivities were widely known in Scarborough and beyond, throughout the ‘Sixties – and thereafter.

  1. Interesting to see that, for the second week running, the Sunday Express throwing in its lot with Tim’s research.

    Nobody in the entire area doubts that PJ was a rampant paedophile – except, of course, the people whose business it was to know that the person to whom they were awarding the high accolade of Alderman status was of a character such as would engender no risk of disrepute.

    Surely due diligence would have required a Police check?

    The Council claims to no longer hold records of any background checks at the time. Perhaps Lisa DIXON could write to the NYP asking for the names of the Officers in charge in Scarborough in the period up to the investiture of PJ. (Presumably she does have the authority to write letters on her own intitiative on such routine matters as background checks).

    But then again, it might prove embarrassing – a leading Scarborough Police Officer of that time could hardly admit to having known that PJ was a paedophile. People might ask why no action was take.

    Why was no action taken? It is almost as though those in high positions in local authorities practice “omerta”:

  2. Congratulations to Tim , at last there is national media recognition of the scandal that has been covered up or just ignored for so long by the Scarborough authorities, including NYP. I hope this brings a lot more support for the Real Whitby team, excellent job guys.
