Tom Minogue's letter to the Officer in
Charge of Central Scotland Police Family
Unit, Bannockburn Police
Office, Stirling, regarding his formal complaint about the physical
and sexual abuse of pupils at Queen Victoria School,
Dunblane between 1989 and 1992.
94 Victoria Terr.
Central Scotland Police
Bannockburn Police Office
regarding the physical and sexual abuse of pupils at Queen
Victoria School Dunblane
between 1989 and 1992. (Explanatory Note)
be obliged if you would accept the enclosed dossier
and two CD copies of same which detail allegations
made to me by an ex-housemaster of Queen
Victoria School, Dunblane.
the time I heard these allegations I was invited by
the Justice 2 Committee
of the Scottish Parliament
to submit examples of cases where freemasonry
had influenced court proceedings and I researched
the Dunblane Inquiry and
cited it as such an example.
the course of my Dunblane research I had
became aware of allegations made by the ex-housemaster on a website
called “Eurorealist” which contained an article entitled
Uncovered”. The article contained
a letter from an unnamed person associated with Queen
Victoria School, which claimed that he had reported
allegations of abuse of boys at the school to the M.O.D. and that
these allegations had not been investigated properly.
The anonymous letter
writer also claimed that there was a link between paedophilia,
freemasonry, and Thomas Hamilton
the mass murderer at the school.
I was interested in
this claim, which had been openly displayed for several years and
an acquaintance of mine contacted the ex-housemaster who I in turn
contacted. The ex-housemaster was called Glenn
Harrison and lived in Unst,
Shetland. I exchanged telephone
calls, e-mails, and letters with Glenn Harrison
before visiting him this year. The most disturbing aspect
of Glenn Harrison’s story was his
account of young boys in his charge being taken away for weekends
with various people some of who abused the boys.
I believe that the
allegations made are truthful and felt that I must make my concerns
known to the authorities but I did not think it appropriate to complain
to the police as they featured in Glenn
I decided to accept
an offer made by a Commissioner of the school, Lord
Gill the Lord Justice Clerk
to make my concerns known to him. However, Lord
Gill thought that the best people to examine a claim
of impropriety at the school in 1989 were the same people who had
been in charge of the school at the time of the allegations and
I found this unsatisfactory.
Lord Gill that I would take
my complaint to the Solicitor General
for Scotland Elish
Angiolini who indicated that
the Family Unit of Central Scotland Police
was the appropriate body to deal with it.
be obliged if you would consider investigating the
abuse of boys at Queen Victoria School.
of course be willing to provide any clarification
or help that is required in this regard.
