UK: Military school investigated by police amid claims of paedophile ring

POLICE have launched a new investigation into the shocking claims that a VIP paedophile ring operated at a top military boarding school.

The probe represents a major development in a 25 year campaign for justice by a retired teacher who risked his career to expose the alleged abuse.

Glenn Harrison was a housemaster at Queen Victoria School in Dunblane when he began to suspect that pupils were being preyed upon.

He claims that boys were often taken away for unofficial overnight trips with dignitaries, while sexual abuse and bullying in the dormitories was ignored.

Some youngsters appeared badly traumatised, yet when he tried to speak to them or discuss his fears with fellow teachers he was told that certain aspects of school life must remain "secret".

In December 1991, he made a report to the old Central Scotland Police and officers responded by breaking down the door to his flat and seizing his journal, computer files and other paperwork.

Mr Harrison, who had already handed in his notice at the school, was then escorted from the school premises and interviewed by detectives.

He moved to the Shetlands and resumed his career as a teacher, although he continued to campaign for a proper investigation into his allegations.  (more...)
