Paedo Scandal Covered Up
A VICTIM of a paedophile ring linked to Margaret Thatcher’s Tories believes his two brothers were murdered for trying to expose the truth.
Chris Johns, who begged the Queen to help protect him and his family after the first brother was killed, says he hopes one day there will be a new probe into their deaths.
He was speaking as Labour MP Tom Watson – who spoke out against the same paedo ring in Parliament – said he too is afraid for his safety.
Chris is convinced his brothers were silenced as they began to reveal the full extent of the paedophile network, which wrecked the lives of hundreds of young boys from the late 1960s onwards.
Adrian, 32, died in an arson attack before he had chance to give a statement, while brother Leander, 34, was found dead in mysterious circumstances, below, during the trial of one of his abusers.
Just a handful of men involved in their abuse and that of scores of other children were ever convicted.
Chris himself says he had underage sex with a high court judge and was raped by a police officer who has never faced justice.
Our investigations meanwhile suggest at least one Tory peer, a major showbiz star, political figures including a Conservative MP and an agent to a world-famous singer could be implicated.
The ring allegedly spread well beyond North Wales, where the brothers were abused, into London and across Britain.
Steven Messham, a victim of the same ring, says he was raped “more than a dozen times” by a “leading politician from the Thatcher years”.
And last night Chris said: “I want recognition of how deep into society this thing goes.
“These people are utterly ruthless and have their dirty work done by third parties.”
The 59-year-old, along with his brothers, were all put into care as children.
And that’s when they fell into the hands of evil paedophile John Allen, who ran children’s homes across North Wales.
In 1992 after years of abuse, Adrian, who had been at the Bryn Alyn home, tried to blackmail Allen by saying he was going to tell all unless he gave him money.
According to Chris he had decided to lift the lid on the depravity.
But on April 17, 1992, Adrian was killed in an arson attack, which Leander survived with awful burns after jumping to safety. In 1995 both Chris and Leander gave evidence against Allen during a trial.
And that’s when Chris wrote to the Queen.The letter, which Chris has given us permission to publish, shows him begging Her Majesty for help.
He wrote: “We were mentally, morally and physically abused as children (most of it will probably never come to light).”
And he added: “Having given our evidence Leander, myself and indeed the rest of my family in Wales are living in great fear of our lives.”
An aide to the Queen replied, saying his letter had been forwarded to the Lord Chancellor’s department and the Prince of Wales.
But the only reply was from a representative of the Chancellor’s impersonally named “Customer Service Unit”.
Leander, known as Lea, died days later from an unexpected overdose, which Chris and his family have always questioned.
During the week between Lea’s evidence and his death, Allen had absconded from bail.
His whereabouts were never properly explained. He claimed he had a breakdown and wandered lost in an Oxfordshire wood.
But £16,500 was taken from his bank accounts during that time.
Chris said: “Leander survived the fire and gave evidence at court but within two days he was dead.”
Allen was given six years for sex assaults on boys.
