Scottish Government Cover Up of Hollie Greig Part 1 – How it all came to light (Republished)
with 5 comments
Hollie Greig and Mum Anne
I have decide to reveal the Hollie Greig’s story in fine detail so that you the public can read for yourself exactly how this sordid story came about and how the Scottish Government suppressed this terrible crime. It covers not only Hollie but also includes other children that fell victim to this ring of peodophiles.
This series will not hold back any information and will include names of the offenders and their victims. It will also include articles that were bouncing around at the time. In writing this series it is also an open invitation for anyone to write to the Palestine Telegraph who feel they have information relating to this or any other case involving children in Scotland who may have succumbed to the same group of the so called Scottish Justice System.
I thought it would be best to actually let you read the story overview that was put together by the Investigator of this case – Robert Green who has since become a victim of the Scottish Government without just cause.
Robert’s article was titled: The Shocking Story of Hollie Greig and is shown in its entirety as per below. I will also include relevant documentation that is part and parcel of this obscene cover up by the Scottish Government and its Legal System.
The ultimate blame must rest on the shoulders of the First Minister for Scotland – Alex Salmond who is very much aware of this appalling story but still sits on his hands and does nothing. Our own ex PM Gordon Brown also did nothing….doesn’t anyone know why?
I will continue to support Hollie and her mum Anne with continues hard hitting articles until Alex Salmond, the First Minister for Scotland or our current PM, David Cameron, bow’s down to the pressure.
The “Hollie Army” continue to grow and we can say with great confidence that we will not need the assistance of NATO to win this battle…..we are strong and will not give up until Hollie and the other children involved have their day in court.
Hollies Story by Robert Green to the BBC “The Shocking Story of Hollie Greig”
In June 2000, Mrs. Anne Mackie, as she then was at the time, following a violent outburst by her husband Denis Charles Mackie, was told by her daughter Hollie, who has Down’s Syndrome, that she had been raped and sexually abused by her father and brother Greg. The abuses by her father had been going on for fourteen years. Since Hollie was just six.
Anne went with Hollie to Bucksburn Police Station, Aberdeen, to report the crimes, moving out of the family home, of course.
Late that summer, in August, Hollie revealed that her attackers extended far beyond her father and brother. Denis Charles Mackie had shared his young daughter with members of a paedophile ring operating in Aberdeen, including a Sheriff Graeme Buchanan, a police officer, Terry Major and Hollie’s own carer, Helen Macdonald.
After contacting the police again, Anne and Hollie were asked to attend at Bucksburn on 25th August 2000, to make their allegations.
Whilst Anne was being interviewed, Hollie was questioned by Officer Leanne Davidson, who in turn, left Hollie alone with a social worker, Nicola Foot. Foot immediately called Hollie a liar and assaulted her by injecting a needle into Hollie’s leg, which must have contained a drug to temporarily disorientate Hollie.
Anne, of course, knew nothing of this until she was driving Hollie home, when she became aware of Hollie’s unusual behavior, which she could not explain fully to her mother due to the effect of the drug. Anne returned immediately to the police station, demanding that a doctor examine Hollie without delay. Davidson played for time by saying that a doctor was being sought, but after two hours claimed that no doctor could be found.
Even worse was to follow just a few days later.
On the 5th September, a medical team unexpectedly arrived at Anne’s home, on the instructions of Dr. Alaistair Palin, to literally drag Anne from her home. She naturally resisted, but her clothes were pulled down and she too was forcibly injected by one of the team.
She was taken by force to a mental institution run by Palin, where he described her as “schizophrenic.” The object was to return Hollie into the hands of her abuser father.
Anne managed to get out of the institution after a few days and had the foresight to demand a full examination by a mental health expert. Dr Helen Smith, who pronounced that Anne was in perfectly good mental health. A result, even Palin had to concede in writing there was nothing whatsoever wrong with Anne.
The police investigation meanwhile, despite medical and other expert witness support fully vindicating Hollie’s story, was eventually dropped on the orders of one of Sheriff Buchanan’s associates, Elish Angionlini, the Aberdeen’s Procurator Fiscal, now Lord Provost.
Anne and Hollie have carried on their battle for justice ever since the, although no independent Scottish solicitor could be found to even take up their case.
Nonetheless, after a few years, with the assistance of Nicola Smith, Hollie was awarded £13,500 by the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority, despite the fact that officially, no crime had even been committed.
None of the experts spoken to have ever heard of such a thing before, the only possible motive being that the award was made in the hope of buying Anne and Hollie off.
This point was picked up by the News of the World in April this year when the story was finally broken, albeit in a very abridged form. A version of this was also published by the Shropshire Star, the local paper now for Anne and Hollie, as they had to flee Scotland due to the danger posed to them.
The BBC’s investigative report, Mark Daly, then approached us. After requesting that we deal exclusively with the BBC, he assured us, after numerous discussions and examination of documentary evidence, that two programmes had been commissioned, one to be broadcast on Scotland’s BBC TV and the other on BBC Radio Scotland, handled by his colleague, Kathy Long. With Her and Panorama’s team MacDougall, they came to interview Anne and Hollie on 4th June this year at their Shropshire home. They also informed us that their investigations had led to them to other serious cases systematic sexual abuse of minors and adults with learning difficulties in Scotland.
On 10th June, Mark Daly phoned to tell us that not only had the team been prevented by a senior BBC figure from making any further investigations into paedophile rings, but also that the team would be sacked if they continued to persist.
Despite all attempts, Daly and the others refused to divulge who it was who blocked them and efforts to elicit this information from the Director-General and the head of the BBC Trust have thus far failed to find a response.
However, Grampian police, under persistent pressure, agreed to conduct another investigation into Hollie’s case, led by Tanya Leiper. No urgency whatsoever was attached to this, however and it was only when a shot was fired at the window of Anne and Hollie’s home this August that any firm action was taken, after I had written to both the Grampian Police and Alex Salmond, who had previously been informed about the case, that I would hold the individuals concerned personally responsible if any hard should befall Anne and/or Hollie.
Tanya Leiper and Lisa Evans came down to Shrewsbury on 8th September to interview both Anne and Hollie. I was able to listen to the interview conducted with Hollie by Lisa Evans from the next- door room of the house.
It lasted around three and a half hours in which Hollie explained and relived her multiple rape ordeals in precise and intimate detail. It was horrifying, but Hollie was magnificently heroic and remained strong and throughout, answering the questions with tremendous composure, squaring exactly with everything I had understood as a result of my own observations. Let it not be forgotten that she had already endured such an interview on August 25th 2000.
I have previously written to Sheriff Buchanan with a list of his fellow rape gang visitors to the house, along with Hollie’s name and a picture of her. He, denied, in writing, any knowledge of any of them. Below is the list:
Aberdeen Paedophile Rape Ring
Denis Charles Mackie
Sheriff Graeme Buchanan
Terry Major (Police Officer, Grampian)
Helen MacDonald (Carer for Hollie Grieg)
Two children of Ian and Helen Macdonald
Two children of Graeme and Gillian Mackie
All these names are known to me as a result of my extensive investigations and I believe this to be true
I have recently listened to the most harrowing interview I have ever experienced, where Hollie Greig spent three and a half hours reliving her multiple rape and sexual ordeals at the hands of Sheriff Buchanan and his gang, mainly conducted in the home of his sister Evelyn.
Surely there are highly placed individuals within the BBC with sufficient integrity and courage to help to expose these appalling crimes and protect some of our country’s most vulnerable young people.
I expect an answer from you personally, not someone delegated to do so.

I found the following statement on the city visitor webpage concerning Bucksburn Police: “If you find yourself in trouble or wish to report something suspicious you’ll need to call the police in Bucksburn. Police here deal with an array of incidents from domestic violence to stolen goods and vehicles and it’s always nice to know that there’s helpful and sympathetic people to call upon during your time of need.
I wonder what went wrong during Hollies years of need!!!
The Hollie story has so far been aired on US Radio Stations, UK and European Radio Stations. Articles have been printed in the US, Middle East and soon in New Delhi. Public demonstrations are starting to get underway in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London. Many web pages now contain every aspect of Hollie’s story and every article written by myself has been forwarded to the following: Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Kenneth Clarke, William Hague, Nick Clegg, Danny Alexander and Ester Rantzen.
Others notified by Robert Green are Alex Salmond – Scottish First Minister, All SNP Scottish Cabinet members, All 43 Aberdeen City Councillors, Colin McKerracher, Chief Constable, Grampian Police, Peter Watson, Levy & McCrae, solicitors, Dr Alastair Palin, Royal Cornhill Hospital, Fiona Palin, Social Work Manager, Ann Begg, MP, George Galloway, MP, Angus Robertson, MP, Ann McKetchin, MP, Jim Murphy, MP and again Nick Clegg, MP, David Cameron, MP, Gordon Brown, PM.
It must be emphasized that all of the above are “Civil Servants” who are put into office to “Serve the People” and “Listen to the People” and to date not one response……their arrogance will be their failing…. now you know where not to vote at the next General Election!
Part 2 will start to work through the minefield of the Scottish (extremely evasive) legal system. It will show a total lack of duty of care by the Grampian Police and Mental Health etc with appropriate letters relating to Anne and Hollie’s case (or should I say no case!). When one adds the historical lists of peodophiles to the existing FBI list we can see that this reaches all levels of those who are supposed to care for us in Health and Mental Welfare, Schools and Education, Police, Care Homes and Politically….. No party is exempt. There is no limit as to how high this goes in all of the above areas…..including of course the upper crust of Freemasons.
We the public must remember to keep up all the media activities and the protests until these so called “Gentlemen of Conscience” (who represent we the people) succumb to the pressure!
The public will be the jury in Hollie’s Case which I will now place before you and you can reach your own conclusions.

Scottish government cover-up of Hollie Greig, part 2: notification of crime & reaction (republished)
with 2 comments
Hollie Greig and Mum Anne
In Part 1 of this series we covered the general overview of the Hollie Greig story as told by Robert Green. We will now continue by explaining the initial notification to the Grampian Police and to other authorities and events that followed after this initial response.
It was back in 2000 that Hollie’s mum had been beaten by her husband and she decided to leave him and went to a hostel with Hollie. It was whilst they were alone together in the hostel that Hollie told her mum that they had to go and get the dogs. Anne said not to worry we will get the dogs but Hollie insisted that they go otherwise he will kill her two pet dogs. Anne then started to question Hollie on this issue and the story of abuse slowly came out. Apparently her father used this tool as a leverage for him to carry out his activities…..he had also told Hollie that he would also kill her mum. Hollie by this time was 20 years old.
The next day Hollie’s Carer came around and so Anne decided to discuss this with her. Anne was shocked with her response to the story…..it later came out that the Carer was part of the ring of peodophiles.
Brian Adam MSP
Anne then decided to take Hollie to the Bucksburn Police station in Aberdeen to report the incident. At this stage it was only concerning the abuse by her father. Hollie spent around three days with the police who cross examined her over her sexual abuse. Hollie had told the police that her father had started doing this when they were on holiday in Brazil which meant that this was when she was only 6 years old. The police had not given any feedback to Anne during or after the three day’s questioning. Brian Adam MSP also wrote a letter to Elish Angiolini (the Procurator Fiscal in Aberdeen) as an introduction to Hollie’s case. This letter is shown at the end of this article.
Anne had been at the hostel from May – 10th of July 2000 and eventually was given accommodation by Aberdeen Council and some weeks after this Anne received a call from the Procurator Fiscal’s Office at 6-30pm on night to say that they were sorry, that it wasn’t because they did not believe Hollie but the evidence provided was not substantial and the case would not be going to court.
Anne continues talking to Hollie over the summer break and it was then that the involvement with others started to come out. Hollie had said that her brother was also involved. It appeared that her brother was first sexually abused by the father and that he had then become a peodophile and part of the ring. Apparently Anne’s son had been involved in some other incident in Aberdeen but got away with it after the case was handled by a lawyer called Buchanan. This lawyer himself was involved in the paedophile ring and later became the Sheriff of Aberdeen (the office he still holds to this day).
Anne then decided to speak with the police officer involved in Hollie’s case and asked if there was an expert that Hollie could be referred but the police notified Anne that there was no funding for this. Anne became very upset about this and told the officer that if he didn’t have the funding then she would do this herself. This cost Anne between 600-700 pounds to get hold of a doctor (DR. Jack Boyle) in Glasgow where Hollie was interview. The doctor eventually wrote a full report and told Anne that her daughter had described to him that Hollie had been subject to sexual activity etc.
On the 25th of August 2000 Anne went back to the police station to tell them about these other people in the hope that something would come out of this. Anne was now aware that many people were involved covering the Sheriff of Aberdeen – Buchanan, police officer involved in forensics, fireman, accountant, lawyer, oil engineer, women etc all amounting to around 14 people approximately. At times it would appear that Hollie was subjected to what can only be described as “Gang Rape.”
Anne eventually managed to access Hollie’s Medical Reports and found out that back in 1990 a Dr.Paul Carter who was connected to the Children Hospital in Aberdeen and Hollie’s school had reported to her GP and Headmaster that Hollie had contracted a sexually transmitted disease. Anne was never told about this despite the fact that Hollie was only 9 years old at the time. No action was taken on this issue which would indicate some sort of cover up. Two years later in 1992 her teacher reported to Dr. Carter that Hollie was showing signs of sexual abuse because she was pelvically thrusting. This was also reported to her GP and Headmaster and again Anne was never told. .
Kenny MacAskill MSP
The Police also accessed her medical notes and Anne spoke with an Inspector Dowell who was asked if he had read Hollie’s medical notes…..the Inspector stated that he had not read them personally to which Anne said “I think you should” and went on to describe to him that at the age of 9 Hollie had a Sexually Transmitted Disease and in 1992 was showing signs of sexual abuse and that nothing had been done about it. The fact that Hollie was in a Specialist School one would have thought that any wrong doings would have involved notification of the parents. It became very clear that one big cover up was going on here.
It later became known to Hollie’s mum that the Headmaster was known to the Policeman and his wife who were all involved in the Paedophile Ring. Hollie later told her mum that the headmaster had sexually abused her also. One has to understand not only the size of the ring of Paedophiles but also the level of sexual abuse that took place. Hollie was subject to being raped both back and front. Hollie complained of pain in her bottom and a medical check was carried out which revealed damage etc.
To recap on this story we have all of the above being reported to the Grampian Police….the list of offenders, list of other victims and the medical records and still the police did nothing. The Procurator Fiscal Office had said they couldn’t do anything. Later that summer Anne and Hollie went back to the police station and they were both separated from each other. Anne was interviewed by Leanne Davidson and a Police Sergeant and she explained what Hollie had told her and Davidson took her statement. After Anne had finished she joined up with Hollie who was sitting with Nicolla Foot (a Social Worker) and Hollie was crying. Mum told Hollie not to worry and took her for her favourite meal at Mc Donalds but Hollie was too upset to eat it.
Anne took Hollie home and on the way Hollie told her mum that the Social Worker had stuck a needle in her leg. Anne immediately went back to the police station and told them what had happened. Leanne Davidson said she would try and get a police doctor. They both waited for two and a half hours only to be told that they couldn’t find a police doctor so they would have to go home.
Anne managed to get an appointment with a new local GP who refused to do a blood test as in her opinion it was not necessary. The doctor did suggest Hollie does a urine test and to go home and post the sample in. Some days later it came back negative. Just before the 5th of September 2000 Anne got a phone call from the above GP who asked Anne to come up to the surgery. Anne said what for and the GP said we are concerned about your finger (which had been previously broken by her abusive husband when they split up).
Letter_to_Angiolini22Anne became extremely concerned as to why after such a long period of time the doctor would want her to go up to the surgery…..it was obvious that the GP had something else in mind. The following Tuesday Anne was making up some curtains when Hollie asked her to make her a sandwich. Anne opened a tin of ham and made a sandwich. She then decided to go down to the bin room to throw it away as her own bin was full. She went to the bin room and one the way to the front door she found police and other men and women standing there. Anne walked past them to the bin room and on the way back was approached by the GP. The lady doctor addressed her and Anne said “what’s going on here” and the doctor asked her to come inside. Anne again asked the doctor why was she here and the doctor replied “We are here to section you” and replied “There is no way, these are just lies from my husband, something has to be done about this as I am the innocent party”…at that stage four men came and bodily lifted me up and taken into the entrance to the building where I was thrown onto the concrete floor, turned onto my stomach, my trousers and pants were taken down, I was screaming blue murder at the time and all my neighbours were out shouting leave her alone she has not done anything. I was injected in my backside and knocked out. Hollie was watching all this and must have wondered what the heck was going on.
Anne woke up in a mental hospital with two doctors talking blood out of my arm.
This became the start of another battle for Anne as she was very concerned as to what had happened to Hollie. Anne later found out that I was taken away in an ambulance and they went into my home and took Hollie into care. Whilst in care they took her to see her father, despite the fact that they knew that the father had abused her. It was Social Services who had done this and one would ask why on earth they would do such a thing. Anne in the meantime got a lawyer and also at this time she noticed a board with numbers on it so she phoned a help line. The adviser said to her that if she does not agree to what they are saying, they will slap another section on you. She had already been sectioned for three days and if they had done another section it would have been for possibly another six weeks and if you still do not agree they will slap another 6 months on you.
After Anne got out after the three days she accessed her medical notes, under the freedom of information. Whilst she was in the hostel Anne was being watched with an intended plan to section her….which is what they did……all of this information was in the medical notes. The two Doctor’s watching her was a Dr. Henderson and a Dr. Sweeney. Anne drove down to Fife to see a lawyer and she put her in touch with a top psychiatrist and both Anne and Hollie went down to Glasgow for that appointment. She spent the whole day with the Doctor and a report was written.
The psychiatrist told Anne she was a normal person and issue a report accordingly. Her lawyer then complained to the authorities that Anne was perfectly ok. The Mental Health Commission wrote back to the lawyer and said that Anne would have to make this complaint herself. Anne then wrote a letter of complaint and she got her letter back stating they had received my letter of complaint. Anne lawyer did get a letter back eventually which stated that they had no record of Anne sectioning and no reference to Anne being seen by a Dr Palin or the legal people in Aberdeen etc. One can sense here a total cover up by the Police, the Scottish Legal System and the Mental Health.
It is at this stage that I will stop this story right there and return with Part 3 which will reveal the next horrific chapter in Anne’s life concerning the death of her brother Robert under very suspicious circumstances. I again repeat that each of these articles is copied to the Prime Minister’s Office, To David Cameron and Nick Clegg with no response whatsoever. It should be noted that on TV last night (The Politics Show) Gordon Brown again said we have to protect our children……So Mr Brown go and do it. It is left to we the public to continue applying the pressure in order to bring justice for poor Hollie Greig and her mum.

Scottish government cover-up of Hollie Greig, part 3 – The death of Robert Greig (republished)
leave a comment »
In my previous article I discussed the initial notification to the Grampian Police and their response in regard to Hollies allegations. Before moving on into the final part of this terrible story we must look at another family tragedy when Anne lost her Brother Robert under very suspicious circumstances.
Anne was preparing for Hollies 18th Birthday and Robert came around for a visit. Anne eventually had to nip out and told Robert. That was the last time that Anne saw her brother. On the 17th of November 1997 long before any of this had erupted Robert was found dead in his burnt out car on the outskirts of Aberdeen,
Anne received a knock at the door at around 2130 and found two policemen at her door. They asked Anne if she was the sister to Robert to which she replied yes and the policeman then requested if they could step inside. They then reported to Anne that her Brother Robert had been found in a burnt our car etc.
Anne eventually went to see the coroner regarding the death of her brother to be told that they had found a length of pipe besides the car (which was not attached) and indications show that he was two and a half times over the limit and that they suspected suicide. Anne obviously was extremely upset and couldn’t imagine that Robert would do this. She later checked her brothers bank transactions and noticed that he had only put 5 pounds worth of petrol in the car, which to Anne was normal for the small amount of running around he did. She did however think that if he had wanted to carry out this act he would have fuelled his car much more. She was not shown the autopsy report and only received a death certificate, with the cause of death being smoke inhalation and not carbon monoxide poisoning that one would associate with the pipe etc.
One year on she received a call from the undertakers to say that Roberts’s funeral had still not been paid for and that she would be put on their Black List. She was shocked to learn this and immediately contacted Ian MacDougall as to why….he said he would look into it.
What should be pointed out here was that the instructions in the will would reveal that the main bulk of any monies would be paid to Anne and her Husband and any residue would go the children. It transpired that the funeral was eventually paid out of the children’s money and there were clear signs that some sort of fraud had taken place. Anne decided to investigate this and started to take photocopies of all the dealings. It was at this stage that her husband beat her up very badly and this caused Anne to leave home with Hollie and go to stay at a hostel.
Hollie’s dear Uncle Robert who was murdered in Aberdeen
Hollie had revealed to Anne after her brother’s death that Uncle Robert had walked in on them one day and caught her father interfering with her. He had warned her father that he must never lay a finger on Hollie ever again. Anne tried to ask Hollie when had this taken place and it would appear it was after their return from Canada in September of 1997. Anne worked out that her brother actually found out only weeks before his death, which caused Anne to investigate further.
It became obvious to Anne that Robert knew too much and may have died because of this. She tried to obtain the Autopsy report but without success and it was only on New Years Eve 2009 that she managed to obtain the report. She didn’t want to read it as it was New Years Eve celebrations but she decided to take a look.
She was shocked to read that Robert had a fractured skull, broken ribs and a broken Sternum which is extremely strong and difficult to break.It became apparent to Anne that her brother had been brutally attacked and then dumped in the car before it was set alight. The autopsy revealed that he was still alive at that stage and that burning plastic had dropped onto his legs etc. The report also found brown liquid in his stomach which apparently was Whiskey, which Robert hated.
We can see a major cover up on all fronts and no one can do anything about it because Scotland is controlled by Alex Salmond and by two powerful legal supporters, namely, The Cabinet Secretary for Justice – Kenny MacAskill and The Lord Advocate for Scotland – Elish Angiolini. These three partners in crime are totally aware of the Hollie Case including the mystery behind the death of Robert Greig and do absolutely nothing. It is clear that should Hollie’s case move forward this could cause the current Scottish Government to collapse.
The manipulation by MacAskill, Angiolini and one of the offenders, Aberdeen Sheriff Buchanen is obscene to say the least and all should be removed from office without delay pending a full inquiry (don’t hold your breath). One should also add that Peter Watson, Levy & McCrae, solicitors has also played a major role in gagging those that may want to talk about this case and is a disgrace to his profession.This is a “Name and Shame” list of all those informed to date by various people and still they all sit on their hands and do nothing. All of my articles are copied to all the political leaders – Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg. The full list is:
Alex Salmond – Scottish First Minister
All SNP Scottish Cabinet members
All 43 Aberdeen City Councillors
Colin McKerracher, Chief Constable, Grampian Police
Peter Watson, Levy & McCrae, solicitors
Dr Alastair Palin, Royal Cornhill Hospital
Fiona Palin, Social Work Manager
Ann Begg, MP
George Galloway, MP
Angus Robertson, MP
Ann McKetchin, MP
Jim Murphy, MP
Nick Clegg, MP
David Cameron, MP
Gordon Brown, PM
In Part 4 we will look into some other interesting aspects of the Dunblane Massace that took place some years ago.
One can draw one’s own conclusions as to who is or was abusing their power of authority and who is still clearly in office manipulating the law for their own hidden agenda.
It is ironic that Scotland will host the ICC Conference on the 7-10 October 2010 which is advertised as follows:
Scotland to host ICC Biennial
Scotland is to host a major international conference for National Human Rights Institutions. The 10th International Conference of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) will take place at the Scottish Parliament from 7 – 10 October 2010.
Delegates from over 80 countries including national human rights institutions (NHRIs), international and regional experts, United Nations officials, government representatives, civil society and business organisations will discuss human rights issues on the theme of Business and Human Rights, and the role national institutions can play in improving human rights in a globalised world. It will be the first time an official United Nations-supported event has taken place in Scotland.
I am sure you would all agree that if the Hollie Case does not come before the courts by the time this event takes place….we will all know where to hold a protest.
It would be impossible, given normal circumstances, for this case not to be before the courts based on current available evidence. The big question now is can we all continue to maintain the pressure in order to gain a result. The pressure must remain relentless and timely protests should be maintained. There is extremely good international support now and I believe we are close to having some sort of action in the pipeline that will force this out into the open.
Remain strong and with your determination we can turn this around…..we owe this to Hollie and her mum and not forgetting dear Uncle Robert who paid for his life as a result of knowing too much.
Bless you all and keep up the good fight.

Scottish Government Cover up of Hollie Greig Part 4 – The Scottish Legal System rejects Hollie (republished)
with one comment
Hollies Uncle Robert (Anne’s brother)
If you can recall we covered the terrible cover up of Robert Greig’s so called suicide which now appears to be a very convincing case of murder His extensive injuries would indicate that he was severely beaten/kicked, placed in his car and then set alight. We must remember that the car had not been involved in an accident and therefore such injuries could not have been as a result of a crash or be self inflicted.
In another article we revealed some letters that were sent advising those concerned of the terrible ordeal that Hollie had endured. It was as a result of Robert Green becoming involved in the Hollie case that things started to move along. Robert communicated with many people and so now we can turn to the response from some of those people. One must take note that the person at the centre of these communications is Elish Angiolini and any such response from her office becomes her direct responsibility. Here is the wording of a letter dated 17th of November 2009 that was sent from John Logue, Head of Policy Division – Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service – Crown Office Edinburgh.
Dear Mr Green,
I refer to your correspondence of 27th July, 2 and 21st August, 9th and 18th September 2009 to the First Minister, together with your letter of the 25th August and 26th October to the Lord Advocate and letters of the 2nd and 10th September, and 5th October to Mrs Currie, the Area Procurator Fiscal for Grampian regarding allegations of sexual abuse perpetrated against Hollie Graig. Please treat this response as a reply to all of these matters.
You have been concerned of the recent safety of Anne and Hollie Greig in Shropshire following an incident which occurred at their home. I understand that this has been reported West Mercia Police Force. Jurisdiction over the investigation of alleged crime committed in England is a matter for the local police force involved.
You have also expressed concern over any involvement which the Lord Advocate may have in this case in light of comments you have made about the Lord Advocate’s involvement in the case when she was the Regional Procurator Fiscal for Grampians, Highlands and Islands.
I should make it clear that your correspondence refers to allegations of abuse by a number of named individuals who have never been reported to the Procurator Fiscal for consideration of prosecution. Grampian Police submitted a report in 2000 to the Procurator Fiscal containing allegations against one person only. In that case there was insufficient evidence in law to prosecute. Accordingly the Procurator Fiscal had no proper basis to bring a prosecution and instructed that no criminal proceedings be commenced.
The Lord Advocate was not in post as Regional Procurator Fiscal when this decision was made. While you have provided a copy of a letter to her from Brian Adam MSP dated 27th October 2000, that correspondence is dated after her appointment as Regional Procurator Fiscal and suggests nothing to indicate personal involvement by the Lord Advocate in the decision taken before her appointment. It is clear from the available records that the decision was taken on evidential grounds alone. There is, therefore, no basis for you to claim that the Lord Advocate was involved in any way in a decision which pre dated her taking up post as Regional Procurator Fiscal.
The Procurator Fiscal at Aberdeen has recently reviewed the original decision taken in this case and it remains clear from the available records that, standing the extent of the available evidence and the requirement for corroboration in Scotland, there was no basis on which to prosecute any person and no scope whatsoever for any other decision to have been taken.
There is accordingly, absolutely no foundation for any assertion that the decision taken in this case was based on a consideration of any improper conduct or that the decision was subject to any improper influence by anyone.
It is widely known that it has been a long standing and personal commitment of the Lord Advocate to tackle the challenges faced in bringing to justice those who commit sexual crimes and in this regard she has introduced significant reforms to the way in which sexual crimes in Scotland is investigated and prosecuted. The suggestion that she would be party to any attempt to pervert the course of justice in any case is extremely serious and profoundly defamatory.
Furthermore, comment has been made about the fact that a claim by the complainer in this case criminal injuries compensation has succeeded. It is important to note that standard of evidence required to bring a prosecution is very different to that required to establish a claim for criminal injuries compensation. Proof to the criminal standard in Scotland requires that the crime and the identity of the perpetrator are each proved by at least two sources of evidence and beyond reasonable doubt. In establishing a claim for criminal injuries compensation, corroboration is not required and the crime need only be proved on the balance of probabilities. Furthermore, a claim for criminal injuries compensation may succeed providing it is established that the complainer has been the victim of crime which means that a claim succeed even where it is not possible to prove the identity of the perpetrator. For these reasons you will see that it is possible to establish for the purposes of a claim for criminal injuries compensation that a complainer has (on the balance of probabilities) been the victim of crime in circumstances in which there is insufficient evidence to prove the crime against any individual according to the much higher standard required by the criminal law in Scotland.
The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service is committed to the thorough investigation of allegations of sexual abuse and the prosecution of such cases where there is sufficient evidence to prosecute and where prosecution is in the public interest. Where sufficient evidence to prosecute is identified and it is in the public interest to prosecute there will be a prosecution.
As your concerns have been addressed on several occasions, The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service does not intend to correspond with you further on this unless you raise points which have not been previously addressed.
Head of Policy Division
It should be pointed out at this stage that Elish Angiolini became the Regional Procurator Fiscal for the Grampians, Highlands and Islands on the 27th of July 2000 and remains in that office until her appointment to Lord Advocate on the 5th of October 2006.
In relation to comments made in the letter above lets just review who was where and in what office at the time of the bulk of the allegations made to the police in 2000.
In 2000 Anne was violently abused by her husband after she commenced checking the background to her brother Roberts mysterious death and the money paper trail that he had left behind (these aspect were covered in the last article). As a result of this outburst and the injuries sustained by Anne she decided to take Hollie and move into a hostel. In June 2000 Hollie started to reveal to her mum her father sexual abuse and also by her brother Greg, This abuse by her father Denis Charles Mackie had been going on since the age of six.
Anne decided to go to Bucksburn Police Station in Aberdeen and report the details has described to her by Hollie. Later that Summer Hollie revealed to her mum that the sexual abuse extended well beyond that of her Husband and Son Greg. Anne again contacted Bucksburn police and on the 25th of August 2000 attended the police station with Hollie to make the allegations.
What is very clear here is the fact that the main bulk of the reporting was carried out after Elish Angiolini had taken office as the Regional Procurator Fiscal (27th July 2000) who was also based in Aberdeen. Despite the arrogant wording of the above letter it is very clear as to whose shoulders this case rested on. It was Elish Angiolini who shelved this case probably to protect the Sheriff of Aberdeen Graeme Buchanan who is central to this abuse. One must also understand that this case involved many people in Aberdeen covering the Grampian Police Force – Education – Health Care – Mental Health – City of Aberdeen Council etc.
It is extremely pitiful that most of those connected with Scotland’s legal system are an absolute disgrace to their profession namely Kenny MacAskill MSP (Cabinet Secretary for Justice), Elish Angiolini (Lord Advocate), Graeme Buchanan (Sheriff of Aberdeen), Peter Watson (Solicitor Advocate) of Levy & McRae in Glasgow….the latter having been awarded Solicitor of the Year 2008. We cannot leave this list without adding the entire Scottish Parliament, Alex Salmond (The First Minister for Scotland), the Grampian Police, Aberdeen City Council and all the associated partners – Welfare/Social Services – Mental Health etc who dealt with this appalling case of sexual abuse.
What is sad about this entire episode is the fact that Peter Watson had an impeccable paper trail of success before allowing himself to be dragged into this grime. I would assume that Levy & McRae will be in full damage control at the moment in the hope that this nightmare will go away……if I were in their shoes I would shed Peter Watson and make a full apology for the manner in which he disgraced the name of Levy & McRae and even possibly assist Hollie and the other victims to bring their cases to court for a successful conclusion.
Moves are in place to obtain the assistance of a very well known International Lawyer so someone should be taking note of this case and respecting Hollie’s right to justice. For those that choose to arrogantly go down the same path then beware we are on to you and it’s only a matter of time.
I will continue this tragic story with more evidence (all of which is held on file)….stay tuned for Part 5 shortly and in the meantime keep adding your names to the “Hollie Army” . Keep lobbying and keep protesting……the end is in sight believe me. Bless you all
