In the UK, a Channel 4 Dispatches investigation has uncovered evidence of rabbis covering up the sexual abuse of children.
Rabbi Ephraim Padwa, who leads the Charedi community in north London’s Stamford Hill, was secretly filmed speaking to an alleged victim of child sex abuse.
Dispatches secretly filmed the top rabbi telling the victim not to involve the police.
The documentary, Britain’s Hidden Child Abuse, shows how some rabbis forbid victims from reporting crimes committed against them.During the investigation, reporters uncovered 19 alleged cases of child sex abuse. None had been reported to the police.
Stamford Hill is right next door to Haringey.
1. According to someone who grew up in Haringey (October 2007 Cached):
“Several of Haringey’s councillors are paedophiles.
“Corruption is rife across every aspect.
“Across every level.
“Through all of this Haringey has over 50 brothels, crack houses and safe areas for drug purchasing.
“And many cases of child abuse within Haringey’s own children’s homes by it’s own staff.”
2. The Haringey Independent, 21st May 2004, reported:
“An investigation into an alleged paedophile ring operating in Haringey more than 20 years ago has been shut down due to lack of evidence.
“Operation Tempsford, a joint investigation launched by the police and Haringey Council, examined allegations of organised child abuse in the mid 1980s focusing on two former children’s homes in Muswell Hill.
“But Lib Dem social services spokesman Ron Aitken says he is dismayed the inquiry has been closed, and is calling for an independent investigation.
“He said: ‘I first became aware of allegations in the late 1980s. There were a number of people working for Haringey Council who were convicted or charged with specific offences against children.'”

“Operation Tempsford … was brought to an abrupt halt in Autumn 2005 on the orders of Haringey’s Chief Executive David Warwick, after he applied what the Councillor describes as ‘undue pressure’ in a letter to Mr Aitken…
“Mr Warwick parted company with Haringey… He moved immediately to a top job advising Deputy Prime Minister Prescott…”
In 2006, Ali bought a flat in Walthamstow, in London.
A secret bug was used by the security services to spy on him. (Ahmed Abdullah Ali – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
London’s Haringey Council placed a foster child with Ali’s family.
Ali lived with relatives, who had been approved as foster carers by Haringey Council.
The child was living with Ali’s family when Ali was arrested in August 2006.
Haringey Council was at the centre of the 2007 Baby P scandal.
Baby Peter Connelly was born to Tracey Connelly on 1 March2006. Tracey Connelly’s boyfriend, Steven Barker, moved in with her.
Baby Peter died in August 2007. He had suffered more than 50 injuries over an eight-month period, during which he was repeatedly seen by social services.
The police were also aware of the case at an early stage.
In the house where Ali lived, extremist literature was found hidden inside a baby’s cot, according to the London Evening Standard.
The council may have “supplied Ali with an element of camouflage for the plot.”
Ali’s family was approved for fostering, despite Ali having a poor employment record.
Ali was also under police surveillance.
He reportedly had a record of fundamentalist Islamic views.
This child-abuse ring operated in Labour-run Islington, the part of London where Tony Blair once lived.
Reportedly, the ring supplied boys to top people.
(This child abuse ring, reportedly, has links to the child abuse in Jersey, which in turn, reportedly, has links to the Dutroux affair and the security services)
Jason Swift has links to Baby P. In 1985, 14-year-old Jason Swift was killed by a child-abuse gang. Jason is believed to have lived in Islington council’s Conewood Street children’s home. A close male relative of Baby P reportedly recruited boys from children’shomes in Islington for the child-abuse ring. Islington children were reportedly sent to Jersey, the island linked to child abuse.
The close male relative of Baby P reportedly recruited boys from children’s homes in Islington for the child-abuse ring, according to a secret report seen by The Mail on Sunday.
In the early 1990s, the relative, as a boy, was put in a children’s home, in Labour-run Islington, in London.
All 12 of the children’s homes in Islington were being used by the child-abuse ring, which reportedly had links to top people.
This ring included three pimps called Alan, John and George.
The relative tried to blow the whistle.
Reportedly, the relative told social workers the names of boys who were being ferried from the children’s homes to various parts of London (Manor Park, Tottenham, Soho and Westminster) to ‘be buggered by old men’.
Reportedly, none of the men were put under surveillance or questioned.
In June 1992, Mighty was sacked.
Liz Davies, the senior Islington social worker who encouraged Mighty to go public, said:
‘We got too close. There were too many powerful people involved.
‘Child sex, pornography and sadism are extremely lucrative industries.’
In 1994, an independent report criticised the failure of police and social workers to help the relative.
