Paedophiles employed by Portsmouth Council

Azra research

After reading the book Heartless Too by Janella [1], and Forgotten by Les Cummings [2]  I expressed my suspicions that there could have been a paedophile nework in Portsmouth and wider in the Hampshire area [2].

It seems that my suspicions were justified.

The documents below, along with others that will be blogged soon, were produced by the Childrens Cottage Homes Justice Project. In this post these show the links between Ralph Bonner-Pink, Freddie Emery-Wallis and Peter Prosser, all of whom were child abusers.

Bonner Pink and Emery-Wallis were on the Childrens Committee and the Finance and General Purposes Committee together. Mr and Mrs Prosser were appointed to the posts of Warden and Matron of the Reception Centre by the Council.

Bonner Pink is named by his adopted daughter as a child abuser. Emery Wallis was convicted of 5 counts of indecent assault dating back to the 1960s and 1970s and Peter Prosser has been the subject of 3 child abuse investigations in 1961, 2006 and 2008, and one since? Prosser has been the subject of 3 police investigations in 1961, 2006, 2008.

Gwendoline Round and Francis John Bone were also convicted of indecent assault and behaviour respectively. Mr Brackstone, a childrens home houseparent was investigated by the Home Office for getting a 14 year old pregnant and running away with her.
