I want to ask the police why they did not speak to me when a social worker told them about an allegation of child abuse. But action was taken by forcing the abuser to retire from his schoolmasters post. The abuser has now died last year hut I feel very let down by the police. One of the victims made an allegation a few years ago before he died and the police did interview me and two of the victims. They did not take it further as they said the abuser was too demented to be successfully prosecuted. I feel an opportunity was lost in 1990.
No, one of the victims made the report and then I was approached the police and interviewed. In 1990 I disclosed the abuse to a social worker who reported it to t he police. I was not approached by the police on this occasion. It is this that I am now angry about it.
