    Recommended reading for everyone here.
    A BBC article about him with a little interview snippet. It's heartbreaking what he went through.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-suffolk-51619758

    Simon Warr false abuse claims worse than fatal diagnoses

    A BBC broadcaster has spoken of how receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis was not as bad as he found being falsely accused of child sex abuse.

    Former teacher Simon Warr, 65, died from pancreatic and liver cancer.

    He was accused of child sex offences in 2012 but was later cleared.

    Speaking to BBC Radio Suffolk in the week before he died, he said the accusations led to the "worst period of my life" and he thought the "stress and anxiety" might have caused his cancers.

    Warr, who appeared on Channel 4's That'll Teach 'Em, said it was too late to undergo treatment by the time he was diagnosed on New Year's Eve.

    He said it came as a shock because he had led a healthy lifestyle and was "extremely fit" for his age.

    Warr said it was unknown for how long he had had the "hidden cancer" but doctors had asked whether he had experienced any recent trauma.

    He said the false allegations "caused me years of anxiety and strife, almost drove me to the cusp of suicide".

    Warr, who often appeared on BBC Radio Suffolk, said: "When I die, it still won't be as bad as that."

    He added: "I was in a more of a distressed state then than I am now because the difference is when you're accused of child abuse it takes away everything you have worked for; it strips you bare.

    "A lot of people don't wait for verdicts; don't wait for outcomes of these things. You get disgusting messages sent to you. It is awful."

    Warr was cleared of the charges when a jury returned a not guilty verdict within 30 minutes.

    He said the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) then undertook its own investigation, that took until February 2015, followed by a separate investigation by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).

    Warr, who was cleared by all investigations in July 2016, said he wanted to be remembered as a "figure of fun" and said meeting Dawn French on The One Show, on which he dressed as a headmaster, was one of the highlights of his life.


    Here's the full interview:

    A while ago I read that Weinstein had his people put false stories about MJ in the media to get attention away from him. What a piece of trash, nothing new but that's extra messed up.

    As for that news about The Sun, music to my ears. I hope they go down.

    People love the ''Michael Jackson paid money to avoid prison in 1993'' argument. Guess what? Harvey Weinstein also paid a settlement and he was still found guilty. So people can stop with the b.s argument that you can pay your way out of prison, because Weinstein's case as just shown that isn't true at all.

    The info comes from an investigative article by the NYT: Weinstein’s Complicity Machine (2017)

    Mr. Benza, then between jobs, had a suggestion. “I could supply your P.R. girls with a lot of gossip — a lot of stories — and if people come at them with the ‘Harvey’s having an affair story,’ they can barter,” Mr. Benza recalled telling Mr. Weinstein. “He said, ‘A. J., it’s got to be good stories,’ and I said, ‘Don’t you worry about it.’”

    Collecting a monthly retainer, Mr. Benza said, he reported items on Roger Clemens, Michael Jackson and others and sent them to Mr. Weinstein’s communications team, though he didn’t know whether they were used to trade away stories about the producer.

    Too bad they forgot about their own findings and let Weinstein and co. repeat the trick last year: certainly it wasn't a coincidence that Untouchable was overshadowed by LN. Mission accomplished, thanks, Oprah and the blue ticks!

    Among other things. It is in this article from 2017 but turns out he wasn’t untouchable after all even though I think his sentence will probably be short. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...omplicity.html

    @ posting the same article at the same time.

    Justice was served finally but I still think he was as untouchable as one could be, and pulled the strings and used his connections for way too long (even after being publicly exposed).

    This thread has turned into a dumping ground for all kinds of things unrelated to LN. If you want to continue discussions regarding other abuse cases like Weinstein, etc., please make separate threads for them.
