Paedophile register of controversial group ignored by police

Charles Napier was on the PIE list
Police let the secret membership list of a controversial group which advocated sex with children to “sit in a drawer”, leaving several of those named on it free to commit serious child abuse, The Independent on Sunday has learnt.

Detectives were given the membership list containing more than 300 names and addresses of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) group in the 1980s, but effectively did nothing with it. One member of the group, which publicly campaigned for adults to be allowed to have sex with children from the age of 10, was convicted 27 years after police were first given the names.

The list has now been passed to the independent Goddard inquiry, which is looking at whether public bodies and other institutions took their duties seriously to protect children from abuse.
