Gordon Wateridge, who was a house parent at Haut de la Garenne during the 1970’s, was to go on trial today for eleven counts of indecent assault.
Now he faces an additional eight charges after a sixth victim has come forward!
Wateridge, who remains free on bail, denies all the charges and his trial was adjourned to August so the new charges can be included.
Hmmmmm, wonder how long Bailhache has been sitting on this information. Isn’t it odd this suddenly came to light on the heels of the Senator Perchard disaster, the arrest of Senator Stuart Syvret, the positively ignorant declaration by Senator Ben Shenton that he was refusing to attend the emergency meeting of the assembly next Tuesday and the damning comments made Lenny Harper on Saturday?
Seems like a ploy by the government to deflect the public’s ourage and anger, no?
