With regard to the recent published letter to me from Graham Brady, Chairman of the powerful 1922 Committee, in which he referred to his concerns about Hollie`s case, copying in Ruth Davidson, the letter was instigated by a private meeting I had with Mr Brady in May 2016.
I provided him with all the key expert witness documents, including the ones that proved Alex Salmond`s implication in trying to cover up the case.
So that there can be no possible misunderstanding and to forestall any further attempts by certain elements to discredit this amazingly courageous young victim of multiple rape, allow me to repeat the following facts.
On the 8th September 2009, in my presence, Hollie Greig made a three and a half hour statement to Grampian Police`s DC Lisa Jane Evans, in which she gave details of the ordeals she said she had suffered, along with names and some locations. Grampian Police were already in possession of independent expert witness statements from Dr Jack Boyle, Dr Eva Harding, Ruth Beckmann and Susannah Seyman of the Down`s syndrome Association, Dr Frances Kelly, forensic medical expert for Grampian Police and a letter headed with the name of Grampian`s Chief Constable, Andrew Brown QPM. All of these independent reports established unequivocally that Hollie was a genuine and innocent victim of multiple sexual abuse. Furthermore, a few weeks later, I obtained more important documents from the medical officer at Hollie`s school, Beechwood, Dr Paul Carter, providing further powerful evidence in support of the other experts.
Copies of all of these documents were forwarded to Mr Salmond. He has always known about the veracity of this case.
Moreover, the documents provided by Dr Boyle, Dr Harding and Chief Constable Brown were deemed to be of sufficient weight to convince the panel of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority to grant Hollie a financial award from public funds as a true victim.
Could any rape victim possibly have had such an array of totally reliable independent expert witness in support of her claims?
Nonetheless, on the 16th January 2012, Dc Evans was asked in Court, on oath by my QC, Andy Lamb, how many of those named by a witness described by all the experts and police as totally trustworthy, had been questioned by the police.
DC Evans replied that the answer was none!
Additionally, nine of those accused by Hollie were asked by Mr Lamb if the police had ever questioned them.The answer, on oath, was always “no”.
It should be stressed that all that I had ever asked was for the police to conduct a properly adequate investigation. It is not for me to decide whether or not those named really are guilty, but it is surely the reponsibility of the police to conduct a thorough investigation into such grave allegations made by a genuine witness and victim.
DC Evans` sworn response in court confirms that there has been no investigation worthy of the name.
Finally, I should add that on 20th February 2013, I was invited to be interviewed in London by officers attached to the Operation Yewtree Inquiry. The officers, DS Shaun Richardson and DS Nick Troon, working under the supervision of DC I Michael Orchard, were very knowledgeable about Hollie`s case and felt that as a result of the documentary evidence and my statement, a further investigation was entirely justified. However, they needed the permission of the Scottish authorities in order to conduct this.
This was refused by a Mr John McSporran, who claimed that “a thorough investigation” had already taken place. This was, of course, transparently
nonsensical, given the evidence already given and DC Evans` sworn statement, but it was sadly enough to block the Yewtree officers` efforts to proceed.
One hopes that the 2017 General Election will lead to the Scottish people learning the truth at last about the Hollie Greig case and those who have abused their power in an attempt to thwart the course of justice and protection for the children and disabled of Scotland.

AT ROBERT GREENS TRIAL 9 PEOPLE WERE ASKED
IF THEY HAD BEEN INTERVIEWED ABOUT HOLLIES ABUSE.
THEY ALL ANSWERED NO!.
HOLLIE GREIG THE QUESTIONS
when a case of rape is reported, you, as representative of the Crown Office, do not believe it is necessary for the police to question the alleged perpetrators without delay;
when a case of rape is reported, you, as representative of the Crown Office, do not believe it is necessary for the police immediately to search the homes of those named for corroborative evidence;
when a case of rape is reported, you, as representative of the Crown Office, do not believe it is necessary to seize and examine the computers of those named at the earliest opportunity;
when allegations of rape are supported by evidence from well-respected medical and psychological experts who unanimously confirm not only that systematic abuse has taken place, but go so far as to name two of the most likely perpetrators, you, as representative of the Crown Office, believe it right to dismiss their testimony and allow those named to leave the country;
when a school doctor twice reports an under-age girl to be at risk, and that girl’s headmaster – one of those subsequently named as a serial rapist – consistently fails to alert the child’s mother or to take any steps to protect her, you, as representative of the Crown Office, believe this to be the normal behaviour of a responsible, and guiltless, person;
when a case of rape is reported by a girl with speech difficulties, you, as representative of the Crown Office, do not believe it is necessary to supply her with support during police interviews, but are happy to use her handicap, in this respect, to discredit her spoken evidence;
when a case of repeated multiple gang rape over many years is reported by a young girl who also names seven fellow victims, you, as representative of the Crown Office, do not believe that, in view of the Scottish law regarding corroboration, it is absolutely essential that the police question those she has named immediately.
When an acknowledged victim of rape receives a substantial award from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, you, as representative of the Crown Office, feel justified in continuing to maintain that the allegations on which this award was based were fully investigated and found to be false.
The document produced by the Police Complaints Commission for Scotland included the lines. “The position, as far as I can determine it, is that there seems a sufficiency of evidence to accept, on the balance of probability, that X was sexually abused, and that this has included penetration of her private parts.
Given that X, because of her disabilities, has been closely supervised throughout her life, the perpetrator is most likely to have been someone close to her who had regular, unsupervised access.”
Re: Alex Salmond’s non-compliance with the Information Commissioner until threatened with criminal proceedings: in Scotland’s only independent law magazine, The Firm, 11 July 2011, we read: ‘Last month the Scottish Ministers were compelled by the Information Commissioner to address a series of questions put to the First Minister in correspondence in relation to the (Hollie Greig) case in January this year, the first of which was: “When did you first become aware of the allegations made by Hollie Greig about her being abused by members of a high-ranking paedophile ring in Scotland?” The commissioner required the Scottish Ministers to respond by today’s date or risk being held in contempt of court.’
A letter to Robert Green from the Information Commissioner dated 10 April 2014 states: ‘I am writing in response to your letter of 6 April 2014 … in which you asked for the date on which the Commissioner issued the decision referenced in the Firm Magazine’s articles. The Commissioner’s decision was issued on 26 May 2011.’
It was not until they were under threat of criminal proceedings that the First Minister’s Office came up with an answer, saying it was impossible to give a date, since all the relevant records had been lost. However, the magazine goes on to say, ‘The Firm has seen correspondence from the Crown Office dated 23 July 2009 addressed to the Greig family’s lay representative Robert Green, which suggests that correspondence addressed to the First Minister outlining the allegations was received over two years ago.’
Re: the likely validity of Hollie Greig’s claims, The Firm writes, ‘Greig received a payout of £13,500 from the criminal injuries compensation authority, and was described by Detective Inspector Iain Allen of Grampian Police as “a truthful witness to the best of her ability and an entirely innocent victim.” ‘ Ample expert witness statements from respected police and medical professionals, including Hollie’s school doctor, back up her allegations.
>Of 22 persons named by Hollie as abusers, only two (her father and her brother) have ever been even superficially questioned by the police. Even though her father and brother were described in a police report as having ‘a predilection for very young girls’, they were allowed to go abroad to Portugal, where they run a business connected called ‘Daisy Chain’ which involves frequent travel to and from South America.
The implication of the Crown Office’s claim that ‘a thorough investigation has taken place’ is, therefore, that a thorough investigation does not require those accused by an acknowledged victim to be interrogated, nor does it require their computers to be seized or their homes searched before despoliation of evidence occurs.
