Jersey's Chief Minister Deny Claims Children Were Murdered at Children’s Home.

 

On Saturday police found children’s skeletons and clothing at Haut de la Garenne in Jersey, which was previously a children’s home. Until now, the chief minister has insisted there was no foul play. This has been an ongoing investigation since 2006.

Forensic teams and search dogs indicated six other locations of interest and they are now seeking more evidence. It’s alleged child abuse has been concealed in the area for many years and the trail could lead right to the top of Jersey’s citizens.

140 victims and witnesses have been questioned. Former Jersey Health Minister Mr. Syvret suspects that there was a "culture of cover-up and concealment" of child abuse on the island. The bodies discovered date back to the 1960s.

There are a lot of people out there that let this happen. People who helped cover up and stuff. It makes you think twice about where you send your kids...

  Very true @seema82  
 
And it makes me wonder if the people that say nothing are cowards or accomplices?

wouldn't be surprised if the Chief Minister had a relative involved, or even himself with a statement like that.
Seeing this on the news i can only presume the people of Jersey would consider the film 'The Wicker Man' a documentary.
