Fettes College Child Abuse Cover Up

Extract from Part 1 – The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry

Fettes College (Fettes) is a boarding and day school in Edinburgh. The governing body is the Governors of the Fettes Trust. The Senators of the College of Justice (Scotland’s Senior Judges) and the Faculty of Advocates are part of the governing body. Each year, they elect one of their members to sit as a governor to represent them.

The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (SCAI) has been set up by the Scottish Government to look ‘at the abuse of children in care in Scotland.’ Fettes has admitted that children were abused at the school between 1930 and 17 Dec 2014.

The SCAI is chaired by Lady Smith (a senior Scottish Judge and a Senator of the College of Justice) and the questioning is being done by practising advocates (who are members of the Faculty of Advocates). This means that people who are responsible for the child abuse at Fettes are investigating child abuse in care in Scotland (including the child abuse that happened at Fettes and other schools).

Extract from Part 2 – Legal Proceedings Against Fettes

Ex pupils have started legal actions against Fettes claiming they were abused there.

One case has been settled out of court for £400,000.00 and up to 20 other cases are pending.

The problem is that the judges deciding the cases and the amount of damages to be awarded are part of the Board of Governers of Fettes.

 

Many papers will be published on this topic. Each paper will have a YouTube video associated with it (coming September 2022).
