Peter Haymans Prosecution File Destroyed in 2006


Sir Peter Hayman

With the mainstream media spotlight on Peter Hayman after the finding of the “unnatural sex” file recently in the archives, I thought it worth summarising the following information.

In 2013 I requested the files involved in the decision not to prosecute Sir Peter Hayman via a Freedom of Infomation request [1] .

I asked the Crown Prosecution Service , quoting this:

“The Attorney-General, Michael Havers replied, ‘I am in agreement with the Director of Public Prosecutions’ (Sir Thomas Chalmers Hetherington QC) advice not to prosecute Sir Peter Hayman and the other persons with whom he had carried on an obscene correspondence.’

Please could you release the papers involved in this decision not to prosecute Sir Peter Hayman”


Sir Thomas Hetherington


Lord Michael Havers

Eventually I was told

” Our records show that the file you requested was destroyed on 17th February 2006. ” [2]

It may be worth researchers asking if there are more details of how many pages this was etc. Perhaps the police still have details. Perhaps the advice is still available somewhere?

Also of relevance to Peter Hayman were my questions to the “D Notice Committee” recently, when the Secretary Andrew Vallance could not conceive that a member of the secret services could be a paedophile, despite the fact I mentioned Peter Hayman as part of this scenario. He replied

“Your hypothesis .. is not only completely speculative and unfounded, but also ignores the internal checks and balances within the intelligence agencies (not the least of which is the direct vetting system). These impose a constant watch for any potential security risks; they would certainly involve anyone (however exalted) involved in paedophilia.” [3]

It would seem that the current secretary of the D Notice committee needs to educate himself upon the risks to national security. If he is of the opinion he expressed then he himself is a threat to national security. I enclose links to my other two posts of correspondence with him [4] [5]

    I am sure is coincidental but this is the same year statutory child care was moved from Social Services to Education The Association of Directors held a self congratulatory do in the Houses of Parliament with only a passing reference in the souvenir memories now on line to what happened to children

    Thatcher ordered the early release of all official and private papers to Charles Moore her official biographer and asked her family friends and political colleagues to cooperate with providing communications, records and views. Moore may be the key to providing an overview of what she knew and did not. Moreover it is difficult to believe she did not advise the Palace or the Palace seek information from her about what was going. Mainstream media without expectation has talk of Hayman being a diplomat and not mention his role as High Commissioner Canada, and the Queens visit

    More significantly but related are the 114 files and if this file was disappeared into national archives with a misleading or false title how many others. We need to know the most senior official was who approved the placing of this file in the archives when this happened and was a politician consulted The Home Secretary needs to be questioned about this rather than get bogged down in process there is the issue of transparency what she meant and the confusion that has arisen with the need to balance confidentiality and collectivism on the part of panel with roles apportioned,

    The impact of this development changes the whole basis upon which the enquiry was established and reinforces the need for a UK wide examination of the abuse of power by the state]

    back to write my thoughts about the whole subject……..

    While the spook was confident of the benefits of their immaculate vetting system I am nonetheless wondering if it made a rare error concerning James SHORTT aka Baron of Castleshortt. First brought to the attention of MI5 about his use of Deal Barracks in 1982 by Brigadier Mike Harvey.

    That well known safety net for the positive vetting system, I refer to Private Eye, who exposed SHORTT as bogus ex SAS in 2009 by which time he was consultant to Cabinet bunker security.

    In the meantime questions unaddressed by the system. Was his organisation source of moonlight bodyguard work to Det sgt John Davidson and four of his regional crime squad colleagues ? Wait a mo I am sure if I just flick through MacPherson Report ? No no not mentioned.

    And Mayfayre associates did they have a Det sgt John Davidson on payroll acquiring plod info for Murdoch Press and did they employ a member of one of SHORTT’s companies ?? Hold on I’ll check MacPherson Report ? No no not mentioned.

    Well how about being an expert military source for David Kelly’s mate Tom Mangold’s book Plague Wars ? Better check out Dr Kelly inquiry and Iraq Inquiry. No no not mentioned>

    Paedophile mercenaries in the attack on Mandela regime 1993 the notorious Parker twins. Desmond Tutu Commission of Inquiry 1995. UK Police follow up inquiries into their training and preparation in UK ? Oh no police inquiries

    Belgian pink ballet paedo ring and their boy procurer involvement with Shortt’s groups at Deal Barracks ? Oh thank goodness Kent Police Authority called for inquiry and report August 97. Oh dear sorry. Call for inquiry and report suppressed by Home Secretary Jack Straw.

    Calls for prosecution under Unlawful Drilling Act 1819 whoopee 2007. Justice secretary Jack Straw repeals Unlawful Drilling Act 1819.

    A rare lapse I am sure.
