Lord Janner Paedophilia Case To Be Reopened

A group of people who claim ex-Labour MP Lord Janner sexually abused them have been granted a review of the decision not to prosecute him, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.

The CPS announced earlier in a shock turnaround that the Janner Paedophilia case is to be reopened.

The Director of Public Prosecutions had said Lord Janner, 86, would not be prosecuted, despite sufficient evidence to bring a case, due to his dementia.
But the CPS said a prosecutor unconnected to the original case would now review that decision.

The ex-MP has denied any wrongdoing.

Sex scandal Labour grandee Lord Janner has been probed before over ­allegations he was part of a ­Westminster paedophile ring.

The Met police spent six months investigating claims the peer – said to be too frail from dementia to be prosecuted – was a guest at London sex abuse parties.

An abuse survivor, known as “Nick”, claims Janner, now 86, ­sexually ­assaulted him at several unidentified venues in London ­between 1979 and 1982, the investigative ­website Exaro has learned.

This follows claims Janner was at the centre of serious abuse of ­children at a kids’ home in Leicestershire where he was an MP.
