Whitehall A huge backlog of requests under the Freedom of Information Act has built up in the Whitehall department with overall responsibility for the legislation. Between January and September last year, the Ministry of Justice received 1,798 requests under the legislation. It admitted to The Times that it had responded to only 1,200 on time. In spite of intervention by the information watchdog in March, the department is still unable to deal with hundreds of applications. Many e-mails and telephone calls about the progress of applications have gone unanswered by the ministry.
First Minister in missing records riddle over Hollie Greig abuse allegations
The Scottish Government is refusing to disclose whether it has lost or destroyed communications records relating to the Hollie Greig case which may indicate when the First Minister Alex Salmond became aware of allegations of sexual abuse, which Ms Greig claims was carried out against her over many years whilst resident in the Aberdeen area.
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 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?”

please address the many times that anne abandoned both her children when she ran away from the house.
ha ha no , that has no bearing on wether Hollie was raped and if there was a cover up.
As a result of last week`s Tony Legend Show, in which Mark Daly was a participant, I would like to clarify certain points as I know that there have been some concerns expressed by those who wish Hollie well. I have been away from home much of last week, including two days in Scotland for another Court appearance.
When participating in the programme, I understood that the basis be that Mark Daly wished to offer his explanation for the BBC`s sudden decision, on 10th June last year, not to proceed with the commissioned programmes. I thought that this was entirely fair, in view of the public criticisms I have made. Mark deserved a chance to speak.
As the programme progressed, however, it seemed that the prime reason was not so much to defend the BBC`s position, but to make a more general attack on the credibility of Anne and me.
Mark highlighted a number of facts that he considered were incorrect. Notwithstanding that we may well dispute these issues, it is significant that at no time during the seven weeks that the BBC held all the documentation did Mark or any of the BBC team every query any aspect of the information placed before them. It is reasonable to suggest that if there were any errors, which would have been made entirely in good faith, the BBC would have queried them at the time before sending down three investigators from Scotland to Shropshire to spend five and a half hours inteviewing Anne, Hollie and me on 4th June last year.
Moreover, at the end, Mark gave an unequivocal assurance that the commissioned programmes would go out in August or September and that a camera crew would come down to complete the requirements. At no time was any doubt ever expressed over the facts, nor about the competence or integrity of Hollie and Anne. We were categorically assured that everything was “in the bag”.
That said, one point brought up by Mark on the programme was the question of the relationship between one of the women named and the sheriff. The woman was a close friend of a relative of Anne`s who described her as the named sheriff`s sister. Anne had therefore always accepted this in good faith, having no reason to query it. Unfortunately, we do not have the vast publicly funded resources of Mark and his team, but our investigations since allude to the woman being the sheriff`s sister-in-law. Certainly Hollie, in her interview with the police on 8th September last year which I witnessed, told them that the woman`s husband was the sheriff`s brother. Much of this interview centred on the home of the woman and her husband, which appeared to have been used as a centre for much of the sexual abuse. I had assumed that Hollie meant brother-in-law.
However, this relationship question cannot possibly be central to the nature of the offences committed.
We were puzzled by Mark’s query about the ages of some of the children, which appeared to be another attempt to muddy the waters. Again it would seem that any question of this type should have been dealt with when the BBC had the documents. Most of the victims, like Hollie, are now mature adults.
It should also be remembered that the commissioned programmes were not just about Hollie, but other cases of paedophile crime in Scotland that his team had discovered, according to Mark. He told us about one defenceless girl in the Glasgow area with Down’s Syndrome who was being repeatedly raped. What has happened to this and other cases as far as the BBC is concerned?
Mark attempted to ask me about the victims I had made contact with. As an experienced investigator, he knew full well that I could not possibly discuss such an issue on air.
Of all the issues brought up, by Mark, nothing could have revealed his black propaganda agenda more than discussion of the death of Roy Greig. As this issue was simply not on the table when our discussions with the BBC took place as we did not receive the autopsy until more that six months after the BBC had left the scene, Mark’s attempts to cast aspersions about this had nothing whatsoever to do with the planned programmes and could only be described as deliberately malicious.
However, I should clarify that Roy’s suspension at the time was not a cause for any significant concern and was not a worry for Roy. He talked to Anne about it and because of the nature of Roy’s position of bar manager, responsible for stock and a numbers of staff, this type of action is far from uncommon in Roy’s trade. He had also been given support and assurances from his union that he had nothing to worry about. What is significant is the discovery by Roy of Hollie being sexually abused by her father just a few weeks before his death.
Mark suggested that Roy’s bone fractures may have been caused by attempts at resucitation. Roy was a strong, healthy middle-aged man. The sternum is one of the strongest bones in the body. To break that is virtually impossible in the circumstances and is only possible had the victim had, for example, been very elderly with brittle bones.
Furthermore, how could Mark Daly engage in detailed comments about a document he had never seen?
The autopsy is a highly confidential document belonging to Anne, who had to battle for twelve years to obtain it.
Finally, Mark was extremely selective on the new “facts” he claimed to have unearthed. He made no reference to the financial irregularities surrounding the considerable wealth of the family estate following Roy’s death concerning the solictor, later to be named as one of the ring and Hollie’s father. It is a matter of public record that Anne won a case over this with the Scottish Law Society. Mark seems to have missed this. Perhaps it just did not fit in with his agenda.
Investigations into this financial fraud continue with the help of Anne’s specialist in this field.
I do hope that this will clarify matters for those concerned and trust that the forces of distraction do not succeed in their attempts to deny justice and protection for Hollie and the other defenceless victims in this horrifying case.
Thank you all for your wonderful support throughout on behalf of Hollie, Anne and myself.
