Re: Sheila and Peter Higgins - character references for Gary Dobbie

I've been meaning to reply about this for a while, since I do have some details. I hope it's OK to share them. Statements from the two CH-related character witnesses were read in court, following video link problems. One, from a former CH pupil, was largely perfunctory, but did state that while livi...

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

As ever I can't find definite information online. Courtserve seems to cover Tuesday but not Wednesday. Does anyone have the time/court number for Dobbie's sentencing on Wednesday?

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

I am thinking of going. If anyone else is, let me know.

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

I’m sorry, Golfer, but if you are trying to suggest that CH management somehow deserve the benefit of the doubt when it comes to Husband/Dobbie, then that’s going to be a hard case to make. I see no reason to set aside the Karim case. One doesn’t need to “conflate” that case with the others to regis...

Re: Who Knew What?
