Paedophilia around Piccadilly Part 3 -Timeline of a Child Rapist 2 – Roger Gleaves

Roger Gleaves aka Roger Charles Gleaves aka Roger Charles Augustine Gleaves, aka Rt Rev Roger Gleaves, aka Roger C Gleaves, aka Cadet Sergeant Major Gleaves, aka Count di Giglio, aka Bishop of Medway, aka Vicar-General of Old Catholic Church in Great Britain,  aka Rupert- General Secretary of the Independent Voluntary Ambulance Corps aka Evans aka Adam Smiths is a serial child rapist.

To the papers he was often known as the Bogus Bishop and by Justice MacKenna as “a cruel and wicked man”.  He became known to the public from the TV programme Johnny Go Home, broadcast in July 1975 to 10 million viewers and the subsequent book.

His method of working was simple. At night he trawled around Euston Station, Piccadilly Station and Victoria Coach Station in his Bishops regalia.

He found runaways who needed a bed for the night. He put them up in one of his 20 “childrens hostels” most of which were squats. He gave them false ID cards and claimed the Department of Health and Social Security money for each resident. Cooking facilities were almost non existent, as were toilets and food was in short supply.

He had a penchant/fetish for uniforms and spent much time sewing gold braid and social worker badges onto adapted RAF uniforms. [5] [21]. He had 27 bank accounts which perhaps indicated where his priorities lay. [3]

He operated under various registered charity name and numbers, taking advantage of the false belief that the Charities Commission checks in some way and peoples perceptions that the organisation must be legitimate, safe or good. He even managed to get a couple of unsuspecting high profile patrons – an MP and a Lord.

The religious titles were from various branches of obscure church sects with names such as Old Catholic Church of Great Britain.

His further scams were a take from the thieving and prostitution arranged at or from his hostels. Also he arranged for children aged 14 to work as security guards and have the money paid to him.

He then took his pick of the poor, needy children to abuse at night. He was a relentless child abuser who has probably sexually abused thousands of children.

Roger Gleaves was notorious for his violent approach when people crossed him [5] and he had an entourage of people who owed him favours who were willing to indulge in violence. Billy “Two Tone” was a friend of a Hackney hostel warden Jim Hyland [p138] who had argued with Gleaves and left for Brighton. Two groups of men tortured Billy to find out the wardens whereabouts. The second crew knifed him 20 times and left him dead by the side of the road. They got life sentences but Gleaves only received 4 years for buggery, indecent assaults and assaults and he was out in 2 years.

He continued his charity registrations, false names, social security fraud, dodgy security work, church sects, debt retrieval companies and raping children all his life and yo-yoed in and out of jail.

He spent his time in prison getting qualifications and got [21] 40 O levels, 17 A levels,  two BA degrees and passed an external law LLB course. He used this knowledge to launch an avalanche of over 50 private prosecutions,  on all who had annoyed him including his barber for a bad hair cut, until he was labelled a vexatious litigant. This meant he was limited in having to apply to the High Court if he wishes to bring an action.

Following is a brief summary of his long criminal and paedophilic life.  His links with other paedophiles are bound to be extensive but difficult to prove. However the provable links are disturbing enough.

A work of this nature is still a work in progress and any more information or corrections are gratefully received.

Now, in the DHSS we have moved over to the advisory function. In many cases, that is right.

Inspections and inspectors can still guide and advise, but they can also check, and it is checking that was so desperately needed in this case.

1982 Aug 9 Daily Star Dick Durham  [17] Sex Slaves aged 10 – Gleaves link to Elm Guest House. £5 to watch videos, sex between £5 and £40 for kinkier requirements. This article juxtaposes Gleaves with the Elm Guest House as the best known notorious boys for sale boss. it is quite conceivable that he supplied boys and attended. This is also the guest house that Leon Brittan attended and videos made. [69]

star elm guest house9882bThere was 10 days of publicity about Elm guest House then it suddenly abruptly mysteriously stopped.  Libel threats were used to silence the newspapers from reporting on the VIP paedophile ring. The Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers, personally investigated complaints from lawyers representing Elm Guest House. [81]  [64]. However the Elm Guest house is relevant to today as the story has not been told. On 15 Sept 2014 there was a vigil outside with some poignant words [86]. Ian Pace also has an index on Elm Guest House [87]

1994 Jun 24 Daily Mail  [19] Bishop held as child porn is seized in dawn swoops.

Daily Mail 1994 Jun29 1994 Jun 29 Daily Mail [19] Peter Rose and David Williams. “Bishop”  held as Child Porn is seized in Dawn Swoops – by Scotland Yards Obscene publications Squad, nearly 100 officers involved.  10 dawn raids in London and home counties. 5000 videos seized. British children abused and police liaising with social services to identify them. Investigation linked at least 3 paedophile rings in Southern England with massive European network. Children abused by adults and filmed in England. Tapes are copied in  England or Amsterdam and then distributed on the continent, together with names of children featured, enabling paedophiles to target the children [19].

Prime Minister John  Major [59] had put child pornography at top of law and order agenda. [71]. This follows 6 month undercover investigation, on men who claim to work for ambulance service or the church. One man claimed to be Archbishop of the Old Catholic Church . Raids coincide with controversy over plans to get rid of Obscene Publications squad by Met Police Commissioner Sir Paul Condon. Michael Howard is poised to save the 16 strong team after 200 MPs supported the officers. [19]

1997 Illtyd Thomas [41] “Thomas on this evidence is a liar, a thief, a sodomite, and a sexual pervert who has the temerity to describe his foul behaviour on his own church notepaper. He was ordained to all his Orders up to the priesthood by Roger Gleaves, probably the most infamous paedophile in British legal history.”

1998 Apr Sunday People [23] said that Gleaves met Richard Becker in Wandsworth Prison {When were they there?} Becker of  Whitehouse Estate, Leyton Green, East London [23][18],  had AIDS, was jailed for 6 years in Feb 1988 for assaulting the same boy as Gleaves [18]. They had set up St Lazarus Voluntary Ambulance Corps as a Charity, taught young boys First Aid at St Judes, Roman Catholic church in Hackney.  Gleaves then moved it to his home address and Becker set up Walthamstow Emergency Response Brigade. Becker was friend of child killer Sydney Cooke [23]

Indirect link via Terry Ewing [101], business partner Gleaves [31] and to Keith Hammerton jailed in 2006 for 6 years for indecent assaults on boys [102] .  Terry Ewing also has link to an Alan Clark which should be revealed soon [103].

It is of course likely that he knew hundreds of paedophiles, through his numerous prison sentences, Elm Guest House, his own paedophile networks and even Sydney Cookes.

Where is he now?

21 Nov 2014 I have heard that as of Nov 2013 he was still alive, still up to his old tricks with his friend James Shackleton Funeral Director aka Earl of Kensington

    Some of this is incorrect. I’ll start only with Gleaves’s birth and marriage dates/locations, and leave you to factcheck the remainder http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/search/results?sourcecategory=birthsutf002c%20marriages%20utf0026%20deaths&firstname=roger&lastname=gleaves&birthyear=1930&birthyear_offset=2&region=great%20britain

  9. cathyfox says:

    Thank you for your information. I find when I do articles like this, that there are many anomalies with information from different sources. Especially with characters like Gleaves “facts” are even harder to come by, and with child abuse generally it has been the case that it is in the interests of certain parties to fabricate or alter “definitive” records . Mistakes can be also be made in typing or transcription. Thus, as usual, I quote both versions with sources/references/links so others can research further.

    • Carol M says:

      The Roger Gleaves I knew professionally in the 60s was definitely born in London – I know that because I had to process some legal paperwork for him after one of his convictions. I always thought he was shifty and paranoid. He’d say one thing to one person and another to another and see what got back to him so he’d know who was talking about him and to who. I think the mistake on his birthplace comes from the Johnny Go Home book, which is wrong on a couple of matters. Gleaves said different things to different people, which probably explains it. I wish I could say more, but I worked for a legal firm and simply can’t, but I will say I wasn’t surprised at all when he turned up on television a few years later!
