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 “Cullen
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.
letter writer also claimed that there was a link between
and Thomas Hamilton the
mass murderer at the school.
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
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.
