Re: New Victim comes forward

Have they come forward to the police or to the school?

Re: Sentence of Peter Webb referred to Court of Appeal

Can we get back to the matter at hand instead of resurrecting an off-topic dispute from last year? AMP just made some interesting comments. Agreed. I can’t find the transcript though, Google has failed me. Can a link be provided as the documents are in the public domain? https://www.chforum.info/do...

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

You’re right about that, I am dazed, confused and more that a little disturbed. Do you mean new charges in the criminal court would prevent CH being included in the enquiry as they can’t run concurrently? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick? Off to email IICSA now. bl**dy well done Rob, as alwa...

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Well done Robert, as ever, for all you are doing to support the other victims. In terms of our letters/emails to them, how lengthy do they need to be? Do we need to provide a compelling argument as to why CH should be included, or do we assume they already know the facts and simply lend our support?

Re: CH Letter re support for abuse survivors

In-house hierarchies gave kids power over each other - and some abused it, to a greater or lesser extent. I don’t think this was unusual though across all schools - I was bullied and fought regularly with other kids at primary school too - so from what I saw CH wasn’t unusual at all? I was shocked ...

Re: Letter to Head Master

Thanks for sharing so much Robert. It’s both surprising and utterly unsurprising at the same time, although it should go without saying that not every name connected with the boat should be considered a suspect of wrongdoing

Re: Letter to Head Master

I hope it’s in some way therapeutic for you to focus like this, I guess it gives you an outlet to channel your anger and frustration towards. I don’t understand the reference to Hayden- who is he? And can you share what about the boats came up at Martin’s trial? I don’t want to step into territory t...

Re: Letter to Head Master

Robert, you are doing fantastic work that few would be able to take on in the way that you have. However, it concerns me that you talk about the needs of the many outweighing your own- please remember that you matter just as much as every other victim and to take a break, seek support in whatever fo...

Re: Letter to Head Master

Thank you Robert. That’s more clarity than I expected you to be able to give and it’s appreciated. I’m not digging for info that could jeopardise further investigations, just continually seeking to make sense of things.

Re: Letter to Head Master

Thank you for sharing your letter. I hope it has an ultimately positive impact for you and the other victims. The 75 victims who haven’t come forward- do you mean that these are people that you are in touch with who haven’t gone to the police or that this is your estimation of how many victims there...

Re: Poulton, Cairncross, Sillett

Very fair comments. However, we can rely on victim statements because the jury believed them. Inaction can be difficult to prove, particularly when everyone passes the buck. Sometimes when there is so much confusion and ambiguity about roles and responsibilities, it helps to put faces to names. Let...

Re: Poulton, Cairncross, Sillett

I agree that people should not be tried by online forum, and that there should not be presumed guilt, but rather innocence unless proven guilty. I have a close relative who was a victim (later cleared) of a miscarriage of justice, so appreciate this point as much as anyone. But even if there’s no p...
