Adjournment In Jersey Abuse Case

~Haut de la Garenne

Michael Aubin, who at the beginning of June, admitted to one count of sodomy and three counts of indecent assault against two other male children, appeared before magistrates today.

Aubin is one of two people charged in connection with abuse at Haut de la Garenne. One other person has been charged as part of a wider inquiry.

The case has been adjourned for a month by magistrates.

I am seriously having doubts that the States of Jersey “legal system” is capable of even comprehending the word justice.

To the abuse victims – you do have support – you just have a corrupt, good-old-boy network running your island!

In the meantime, the good Senator Syvret tabled a
proposition of no-confidence in the Jersey Council of Ministers. The parliament will begin debating it today.

Will Frank and company be booted to the gutter? Doubtful, as Syvret acknowledges – but it will be interesting to see the vote and hear what the politicos had to say!

Ministers, the world is watching!
