The Strange Case of a Judge, a Lawyer, a Paedophile and a Murdered Baby
GEORGE GIBNEY (in the news again) ranks as one of Ireland’s most prolific paedophiles. Which says a lot as in fairness we seem to punch above our weight when it comes to that particular activity. As a swimming coach he was ideally positioned to abuse the children under his control and abuse them he did. At least according to the seven swimmers who provided sworn affidavits to police to the effect that Gibney had assaulted them at various times between 1967 and 1981. But despite these statements and the rumours swirling around Gibney no charges were brought for several years due to ‘lack of evidence’. Eventually the Director Of Public Prosecutions acted and this is where the story gets really interesting.
Because in 1993 Patrick Gageby, Gibney’s barrister, sought a Judicial Review preventing the DPP from proceeding with the charges. The appeal went all the way to the Supreme Court which ruled that all charges be dropped due to the length of time it took the victims to formally act. Gibney apparently couldn’t be expected to remember raping or abusing a child on a certain night, or day, in his car, or in a room at the swimming pool, or on an Irish swimming trip abroad, or in their own house, or in the back seat of a family car while one of their parents was driving. Of course. Such little matters would slip anybody’s mind. So just like that he walked free. Gageby, who had developed a reputation for representing alleged sex offenders, then proceeded to bring a large number of successful appeals based on this ruling.
Now here’s another strange thing. Sitting on the case, in what would appear to be a blatant conflict of interest, was Mrs. Justice Denham, brother of Patrick Gageby. She enthusiastically supported the ruling to expunge all charges against Gibney. So good for paedophiles, good for Denham (she was subsequently appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court) and good for her brother who trousered vast fees in the ensuing appeals. But not so good for vulnerable kids, one of whom Gibney abused within a year after he had fled to America.
Irvin Muchnick, the Jewish journalist (let’s give credit where it’s due) who did so much to track Gibney down wrote “Questions surrounding the actions or inactions of the Arvada police add to the body of information of how Gibney, whom we’ve described as the most notorious at-large sex criminal in the history of global sports, not only managed to gain entry to the US via a 1992 visa, but also has remained in this country ever since — thanks in large part to curious official decisions that have had the clear effect of protecting him from on ongoing campaign to seek his extradition and trial on dozens of both old and newly emerging allegations of molestation and rape.”
Now let me move to another seemingly unrelated case, a case of incest, child abuse and murder so horrifying I hesitated to bring it to your attention. Cynthia Owen’s father was an alcoholic who raped her from the time she was eight. Aged eleven she gave birth to his baby during the Easter holidays of 1973. She alleges that, after removing the placenta, her mother picked up the infant and stabbed her with a knitting needle (more than 40 times the inquest later heard). When she was certain the baby was dead, says Owen, her mother put it in a laundry bag and crept out into the night, dragging Cynthia – now delirious – with her, and hid it in a lane in the nearby town of Dun Laoghaire. An investigation was launched but closed six weeks later, and the case became another notorious unsolved murder.
Cynthia also claims she was ‘rented out’ to a local paedophile ring, three of whom were policemen whom she alleged also covered up the allegations she made. Eventually in 2007 a jury at the inquest into the death of the dead baby unanimously found she was the child of Cynthia Owen; that she died at the family’s former home in White’s Villas in Dalkey; and that her cause of death was haemorrhage due to stab wounds. The ensuing public outcry forced Minister For Justice Michael McDowell to order an inquiry. And guess who he chose to conduct it? None other than Patrick Gageby! And guess what Gageby recommended? That no further action be taken.
The existence of a massive international paedophile ring comprising some of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful people is becoming increasingly clear. And we didn’t have to wait for the Jeffrey Epstein or Jimmy Saville revelations to arrive at that conclusion. We look back in amazement at how their likes managed to get away with their depredations for so long. Time after time we learn that ‘a file was presented to the prosecutors’ and then that ‘no further action was recommended’. Or gets “lost” as in the case of Leon Brittan, then the top Justice official in the UK. Gibney seems to have been similarly blessed all the way through, even after he fled Ireland. He immediately got similar jobs in Scotland and in America.
It seems inconceivable that the developments surrounding such a prominent international swimming coach would have gone unnoticed by his new employers and even if they had, did they not make even a cursory career inquiry before appointing him to such sensitive posts? And as we saw above he got residency in the USA under very suspicious circumstances. (By the way a concerned Irish citizen warned Diane Feinstein’s office about Gibney but never got even an acknowledgement). The Owens case had similar echoes, one being that her father, despite being a heavy drinker and smoker with a menial job left hundreds of thousand of Euro in his will.
I’m not suggesting that anyone named in the post was involved in a paedophile ring. But extremely powerful people, much more powerful that the Denhams, Gagebys and McDowells of this world, have almost unlimited ways of applying pressure on lower level decision-makers, often indirect, but effective nonetheless. Meanwhile the project to normalise paedophilia continues apace.
