Peter McKelvie’s comments on Charles Napier and Peter Righton

spotlight

Napier is an evil,calculating, manipulative paedophile
The charges he was found guilty on today were the tip of the iceberg for the scale of abuse he carried out over 40 years

After been found guilty of abuse as early as 1972, Napier was placed on List 99 with the Department of Education and so should not have been allowed to teach again
However Peter Righton, an equally devious and prolific abuser, intervened
As Director of Education at the National Institute for Social Work, Righton had become a prestigious and respected social work professional.
( The National Institute for Social Work – NISW – was a provider of services aimed at achieving excellence in practice and management in social work and social care in the UK and past employees include Sir Peter Barclay – Author with Righton of the Barclay Report – Sir Williiam Utting – Author of the Utting Report…

Former teacher jailed for sex abuse of boys (02.09.95)

spotlight

The Times, 2nd September 1995

A FORMER British Council worker, who sexually abused boys at his home, was sent to prison for nine months yesterday. Charles Napier, 48, was a treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange and had convictions for child abuse as far back as 1972, Kingston Crown Court was told.

Napier found a job with the British Council in Cairo after being banned from teaching jobs in British schools after a conviction for indecent assault. He was sacked when British Council officials discovered the offences.
He admitted in a pre-sentence report that he was still sexually attracted to boys, and had also expressed continuing sexual feelings for children in a recent letter, the jury was told.
During the two-week trial, the jurors heard that Napier, who had denied two charges of indecent assault between 1982 and 1985, had lured young boys back to his home in Thames Ditton…

Daily Mail, 1st June 1994

Mail010694

A STAFF member of the British Council has been named as a key suspect by police investigating a nationwide paedophile network.
Charles Napier was in hiding last night after being suspended from his post as assistant manager of the council’s centre in the Egyptian capital Cairo.
Scotland Yard’s Obscene Publications Squad, which believes up to 11 people are involved in the network, is also probing allegations that diplomatic bags were used to smuggle child pornography into Britain.
The Government-funded council, which promotes Britain’s cultural interests abroad, is holding its own inquiry into how Napier came to be employed despite previous convictions for child sex offences.
A spokesman said he would have been involved mainly with adult students, but could not rule out the possibility that he had worked with children at summer camps.
Napier, half-brother of Lady Thatcher’s former private secretary, Tory MP John Whittingdale…

Bad, mad and sad: The politics of scrapping the Child Sex Abuse inquiry

David Hencke

Theresa May, home sercretary.Bad, mad and sad if she scraps the whole inquiry Pic Credit: conservatives.com Theresa May, home sercretary.Bad, mad and sad if she scraps the whole inquiry Pic Credit: conservatives.com

The revelations that Theresa May, the home secretary, is considering scrapping the newly set up independent panel by Mark Watt, editor of Exaro, will have more implications than many survivors can possibly imagine. It will go much further than the anguish shown by panel member and survivor  Sharon Evans, whose heartfelt views are reflected in her letter revealed in the Exaropiece.

Survivors who campaigned for a clean break hope for a new judge led inquiry or Royal Commission compelling everybody to give evidence which will solve all their problems and produce ” an all singing,dancing ” result. Some of them don’t want anybody on the panel at all.

What they are not aware is that a political decision to reshape the inquiry is now competing with a now much bigger political issue: The General…
