Lord Greville Janner should NOT be saved from trial, says alleged assault victim

Paul Miller was nine when he went on the school trip where the alleged assault took place
Paul Miller, 53, said he was attacked by the Labour peer when he was just nine years old during a visit to the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft in the Palace of Westminster.

He claims Janner told him to look at the floor where there was on old bloodstain before lurching forward and assaulting him.

Mr Miller, from Leicester, is now hoping the 86-year-old peer will finally be brought to justice in Scotland, where detectives are investigating another assault claim.

Janner has been ruled unfit to stand trial in England and Wales because of his dementia but could be prosecuted north of the border. He is accused of abusing a young boy during a school trip to Edinburgh in the 1970s.

Mr Miller said: “If the Scottish authorities can do what the justice system down here has failed to do then I’d be a happy man.

“I don’t believe for one minute that he is too ill to stand trial and if the Scots do decide to prosecute it would be welcomed by all his victims.”  (more...)
