Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

That is the tranche of IICSA I am currently involved in. I would be happy to prepare a submission for the inclusion of CH in IICSA, however, may need some assistance with some of the background info to ensure it is as complete as possible. If there is support for me in doing so, I have no issue at a...

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

Interesting... It is not listed anywhere on IICSA so the request was not successful I presume? I think that it should be incorporated as it looks not only at the abuse but the institutional failings, hence surprised CH of their own volition made a request... I recently made an application to represe...

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

Just a thought...but has there been any discussion as to whether CH ought to be included in the Residential Schools investigation as part of the Independent Inquiry Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) ?

Re: Letter to the Head Master

These types of claims are often pursued by way of 'no win no fee' or conditional fee agreement (CFA).We run all of our abuse litigation with this funding. There are a limited pool of firms who undertake 'abuse claims' (us included) and many larger firms on the wiki list will be insurer firms and mos...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

Making the first sentences concurrent seems to me to be wrong and shows insufficient respect for those victims, but I suppose there are legal reasons for this? In my view Karim should atone for each victim in turn (and with a longer stretch for each). Out in five (or a bit less) and back to being t...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

The first three counts were concurrent at seven years. Four given one year concurrent to run consecutively and the remainder given two years concurrent to run consecutively totalling the ten. He didn't show a reaction when the sentence was handed down and throughout showed little emotion even when t...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

Just a brief update.

Managed to obtain a seat and sat through the full sentencing hearing.

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

It appears that the court is restricted to the seven seats and the judge is unwilling to allow standing or for the jury box to be used.

It may be I am unable to update as there are some in attendance who for understandable reasons take priority.

Re: A comment from a Sexual Abuse Victim from CH

Great admiration and respect, firstly for disclosing and for pushing with criminal proceedings but also waiving your entitled anonymity to support others. The School appears to have failed many and save for some negative press have evaded any culpablity in these matters (when they are as culpable as...
