Question and charge Lord Janner

As you are aware the Director of Public prosecutions refused police permission to quiz him about claims that he had sexually abused more than a dozen boys. Since that decision it has been found after an investigation and freedom of information request that Lord Janner has on multiple occasions:

- Travelled in his own car to the House of Lords car park and used his personal security pass, suggesting he was at the wheel;

- Told authorities he was in Parliament on official business – even though it was not sitting at the time;

-Personally signed a cheque to cover the cost of his stay in a Westminster car park, after detailed correspondence with senior officials in the House of Lords.

Lord Janner would have been charged with 22 counts of indecent assault and buggery against nine boys, but the DPP stated that his dementia made him unfit to stand trial. 

Last night, Simon Danczuk, the campaigning MP who exposed Cyril Smith as a paedophile, said: ‘I was told by police that Lord Janner was alleging ill-health in April 2014, so he couldn’t be interviewed. To hear that he was on official parliamentary business two months later at the height of the police investigation is astonishing.

‘If the Crown Prosecution Service and police were aware of this then surely they would have taken a decision to interview him. How can Lord Janner be fit enough to be on official parliamentary business but not fit enough to answer questions about extremely serious crimes?’

Lord Janner must now be expected to answer questions and/or be barred from the House of Lords permanently. If he is not competent enough to withstand questioning then he is mentally incapable to sit in the Lords.
