  • There are 214 confirmed offences including 34 rapes
  • Payouts could run into millions of pounds

  • A shocking report into Jimmy Savile’s six decades of sex abuse left the BBC and NHS open to huge payouts yesterday.

    Many of his 214 known offences were on BBC premises and he even attacked a girl during the last edition of Top of the Pops in 2006.

    The paedophile also preyed on young people at a hospice and 13 hospitals, including a terminally ill child at Great Ormond Street. 

  • The victim, aged 11 or 12, told relatives before dying that Savile had touched them inappropriately.

    The Scotland Yard and NSPCC report said the DJ spent ‘every waking minute’ thinking about abusing children and used his celebrity status to that end. Eighteen girls and ten boys aged under ten were abused – the youngest being a boy of eight targeted at his school.

    Allegations of sexual assault have been made by 450 individuals, aged up to 47, and some have yet to be interviewed.

  • The 214 confirmed offences included 34 rapes and stretch across 28 police force areas. The most recent was in 2009 but they date back as far as 1955.

    Lawyers for the victims have already instigated compensation claims against the BBC, NHS and education authorities for failing to stop the serial predator. The payouts could run into millions of pounds.

    Victims said it was shocking it had taken so long to expose the DJ’s predatory behaviour. They said senior managers who missed opportunities to stop him should be named and shamed.

    The map of despair

     

    The BBC have said that the 2006 incident on Top of the Pops where Savile is accused of attacking a girl is an unfounded allegation.

    Caroline Moore, who is paralysed, said Savile abused her as a star-struck 13-year-old recovering in the children’s ward at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 1971.

    The 53-year-old, from Glasgow, said: ‘I am still very angry there were so many missed opportunities, not only from producers and managers at the BBC who promoted and protected him, but heads of hospitals and schools that turned a blind eye.

    ‘So many people knew what he was doing, mainly to vulnerable children, and did nothing.

    ‘They need to take a long look at themselves and those senior managers in positions of responsibility should be named and shamed.’

    REPORT REVEALS FURTHER SEX ATTACKS BY SAVILE 

    1960: A 10-year-old boy saw Savile outside a hotel and asked for his autograph. They went into the hotel reception where he was seriously sexually assaulted

    1965: A 14-year-old girl met Savile in a nightclub. She later visited his home and was raped

    1972: A 12-year-old boy and two female friends attended a recording of Top of the Pops. During a break in filming Savile groped his genitals and the breasts of his two friends

    1973: A 16-year-old female hospital patient was befriended by Savile. He led her to an office where he kissed her, touched her inappropriately and then
    subjected her to a sexual assault

    1974: Savile took a 14-year-old schoolgirl for a drive in his car and seriously
    sexually assaulted her

    2009: A 43-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by Savile when he put his hand up her skirt while talking to her on a train journey between Leeds and London

    Kim Anderson, a 19-year-old waitress in a restaurant that many of the DJs and stars of the 70s frequented, was invited on to Savile’s Radio 1 Roadshow bus in 1980.

    He lunged as she sat down on a couch, and she had to fight him off as he tried to kiss and touch her.

    Speaking from her home in France, she said: ‘I do hold the BBC to blame – they created a very powerful man and then let him get away with unspeakable things.

    ‘They gave him a platform for fame and credibility, and when people realised what he was doing, they just turned a blind eye and did nothing.’

    The 37-page report, Giving Victims a Voice, provides detailed findings of Operation Yewtree, the police investigation launched after an ITV documentary exposed Savile’s paedophilia last year.

    Peter Spindler, the Metropolitan Police commander in charge of the inquiry, said Savile had ‘groomed the nation’ and used his celebrity to ‘hide in plain sight’ during his offending.

    As the sheer scale of his depravity was revealed, it emerged that:

    • Savile abused children as recently as 2009;
    • He struck at 14 schools, often using his Jim’ll Fix It postbag to target youngsters;

    • Almost three quarters of his victims were under 18, mostly teenage girls;

    • Police and prosecutors missed three chances to prosecute Savile before he died aged 84;

    • BBC Chairman Lord Patten was accused of blocking a helpline for victims;

    Commander Spindler said: ‘Savile’s offending footprint was vast, predatory and opportunistic. He cannot face justice today, but we hope this report gives some comfort to his hundreds of victims. They have been listened to and taken seriously.’

    Findings: Today's report finds victims ranged from eight to 47 years old, including 174 females and 40 males, with 50 attacks taking place at hospitals, 33 at TV or radio studios and 14 at schools

    Findings: Today’s report finds victims ranged from eight to 47 years old, including                                                                            174 females and 40 males, with 50 attacks taking place at hospitals,                                                                                                           33 at TV or radio studios and 14 at schools

    His colleague, Detective Superintendent David Gray, said: ‘Savile spent every minute of every waking day thinking about it [abusing children] and whenever the opportunity came along he took it.

    ‘He was programmed to think about it and act in that way. He only picked the most vulnerable, the ones least likely to speak out against him.’

    Peter Watt, of the NSPCC, said: ‘The sheer scale of Savile’s abuse over six decades simply beggars belief.

    ‘He is without doubt one of the most prolific sex offenders we have ever come across and every number represents a victim that will never get justice now he is dead.

    ‘But with this report we can at least show his victims that they have been taken seriously and their suffering has been recognised.’

    TALKS ON STRIPPING SAVILE OF HIS KNIGHTHOOD FOR FIRST TIME

    The Honours Forfeiture Committee is to discuss the possibility of completely stripping Jimmy Savile of his knighthood even though the honour technically expired when he died – a move that would be a first for the honours system.

    Having a knighthood means someone is the member of an order with a lifetime membership which no longer exists when the person dies.

    Therefore, as Savile is dead, there is nothing to strip him of.

    But amid widespread public revulsion for Savile, it is believed the Honours Forfeiture Committee is looking at this issue again.

    Should the committee decide an honour should be forfeited, the normal procedure is that a recommendation is submitted to the Queen and she makes the final decision.

    The BBC again apologised to those affected, saying: ‘The police report into Jimmy Savile contains shocking revelations. As we have made clear, the BBC is appalled that some of the offences were committed on its premises.

    ‘We would like to restate our sincere apology to the victims of these crimes. The BBC will continue to work with the police to help them investigate these matters.

    ‘We have also set up the Dame Janet Smith Review to help us understand how these crimes could have been committed and how we can avoid them happening ever again.’

    Savile, who died in October 2011, abused victims at 14 medical sites and the majority of the NHS institutions involved have launched investigations into abuse allegations.

    Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said investigations should look into whether any NHS employee knew what was going on and turned a blind eye to the abuse.

    He told Sky News: ‘We knew when the investigation opened in the autumn that we had a problem in three NHS organisations but today we realise that it’s gone a lot further than that.

    ‘The question we are all asking ourselves is how could this have happened for so long without anyone speaking up?

    ‘Most importantly of all, we need to know whether anything needs to change in the procedures that we have now in the NHS in order to be able to reassure the public that NHS organisations are totally safe.’

    Kim Harrison, from Pannone, a law firm representing around 50 victims, said the damning report was one of the first steps on the way to them getting ‘some kind of justice’.

    She said: ‘The sheer scale of what’s happened here and the sheer number of institutions involved will shock everybody, even victims themselves.

    ‘There’s questions to be asked about how he was able to get away with this for so long, who knew about it and who turned a blind eye.’

    Lawyer Liz Dux, from Slater and Gordon, which is representing a similar number, said: ‘For the victims, today is hugely important. It represents the end of chapter one.

    ‘The next stage is for the inquiries to take place as efficiently as possible. The police investigation just looks at the criminal side of things, but the inquiries are important because they look at what was not, or ought to have been, done about Savile.

    ‘That’s important, especially to those who reported something at the time.’ Civil compensation claims for a handful of victims are already under way against the BBC and more claims will be lodged after all the investigations are complete.

    Savile’s £4.3million estate has been frozen in light of the allegations.

    SAVILE ABUSE CLAIMS ‘NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY ENOUGH’

    Alison Levitt

    A chance to convict Jimmy Savile for sex offences against three victims when he was alive was missed because police and prosecutors did not take claims seriously enough.

    Details of a review of the decision not to prosecute Savile in 2009 by Alison Levitt QC (right), legal adviser to the director of public prosecutions (DPP), were disclosed today.

    She found that ‘had the police and prosecutors taken a different approach’ prosecutions could have been possible in relation to three victims.

    Ms Levitt said that there was nothing to suggest the victims had colluded in their stories, or that they were unreliable.

    Police and prosecutors treated their claims ‘with a degree of caution which was neither justified nor required’, she said.

    Surrey Police received an allegation in May 2007 that Savile had sexually assaulted a teenage girl at Duncroft Children’s Home in the late 1970s.

    In the investigation that followed, two more allegations emerged – the first that in about 1973 Jimmy Savile had sexually assaulted a girl aged about 14 outside Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

    The second was that in the 1970s Jimmy Savile had suggested to a girl aged about 17, again at Duncroft, that she perform oral sex on him.

    In March 2008, Sussex Police received a complaint that Savile had sexually assaulted a woman in her early twenties in a caravan in Sussex in about 1970.
    Surrey Police consulted with the CPS about all four allegations, and in October 2009 it was decided that no prosecution could be brought because the alleged victims would not support police action.

    Muhammad fantasized about baby Aisha before soliciting her from her father

    Sahih Bukhari 9.140 Narrated ‘Aisha:

    Allah’s apostle said to me, “you were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, ‘uncover (her),’ and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), ‘if this is from Allah, then it must happen.

    Muhammad, 50, marries baby Aisha at age 6

    Sahih Bukhari volume 5, book 58, number 234

    Narrated Aisha: the prophet engaged (married) me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, um ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me.

    …….she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some ansari women who said, “best wishes and Allah’s blessing and a good luck.” then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.

    Bukhari vol 8, bk 73, no 151

    Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the prophet, & my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the prophet would call them to join & play with me. (the playing with the dolls & similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-bari page 143, vol.13)

    HOW TO THIGH

    Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89).

    Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child.
    According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her.

    Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs?

    Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9.

    Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.“Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar).

    The inquirer asked the following:‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’
    After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age.

    That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers’” (Fatwa No. 31409).

    Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir)

    AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES

    From the Hadith of Bukhari:

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

    Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

    I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

    Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

    I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

    From the Hadith of Bukhari:

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

    as above (229).

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

    Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

    I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

    Mohammed heard one of his wives was leaving him, so he rushed home where he found her on the carpet in front of the tent with her belongings; he sat down beside her & said, “I heard you were planning to leave me?”
    She replied, “Yes, I heard your other wives saying, you were a pedophile!”
    Mohammed thinks for a minute or so & then responds,
    “that’s a mighty big word for a 6 year old child.”
