Police investigating child abuse claims on the island of Jersey say they are set to question 13 celebrities, politicians and sports stars.

Detectives have revealed that the prominent figures, who are 'well known' will be quizzed 'imminently' into allegations of institutionalised sex offences on the Channel island.

Their identities have not been revealed but police have said that 13 of the 45 suspects are public figures, including media personalities, politicians and sports people and they will be questioned as part of Operation Whistle.
The alleged abuse is said to have occurred between the late 1930s until the mid 2000s across four institutions, including the Haut de la Garenne children's home.

The other institutions, which have not been named, are no longer functioning.

Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull from States of Jersey Police, said his task force expects to begin interview with the suspects imminently.

He said that there are around 50 victims and 45 suspects - some of whom are dead or not yet identified.

Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull of States of Jersey Police, who confirmed the majority of the abuse allegations date back to the 1970s and 80s

Mr Gull said: 'Some of them are celebrities, politicians, some of them are people in the media, some of them are sports people. These are people who are well known.'

'Some of them are still alive and some of them are deceased but we will not be disclosing more than that.

'Some of them were visitors to the island, some will have been resident.'

He also confirmed that the most historic cases date back to the late 1930s but the majority are from the 1970s and 1980s.

Mr Gull added: 'The most recent cases have been reported in the last five to ten years. There may be arrests made imminently.

'There will be interviews soon and some of the suspects will have to travel to the Island from the UK.'

It is understood that there may be some crossover with the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Yewtree investigation into sexual abuse carried out by the former children’s TV presenter, Jimmy Savile.

However, Savile is not believed to be one of the 13 prominent suspects identified but the force had fielded several further complaints about abuse carried out by him in the island.

An investigation was launched into allegations of historic child abuse in Jersey in 2007 with former children's home Haut de la Garenne becoming the focus.

By February 2008, the investigating team had received some claims about possible murders at Haut de la Garenne, a children's home for 86 years until it closed in 1986.
There were also suggestions that human remains were entombed in concrete in the building but it later turned out to be a piece of coconut.

However, the investigation did show numerous instances of abuse against past residents, with one former staff member being convicted of abuse.

Gordon Wateridge, was found guilty of eight indecent assaults on teenage girls and jailed for two years in August.

Just catching up .Always thought there was a lot more to come from that Hell hole. Hope they go right to the top with this. Appears someone determined not to drop it. Surprised it got this far with all the hush surrounding it, even then I expect the full extent of the horrors will not be known..

"Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull from States of Jersey Police, said his task force expects to begin interview with the suspects imminently."

I`m amazed that the Jersey Police are prepared to expose it - they used to be part of the cover-up.

Lenny Harper just came up against a wall of silence and animosity and he was branded by the MSM just like Goncalo.
