I know the gentleman who is the 'source' and I also know how close he is to some of the victims and their families.He's not named for his own protection.Theres a lot going on in the background.I'd so love to be wrong.
Unfortunately we're talking about The Sun here and there's not one direct quote.
Torbett asked and received permission from Celtc to use their name. There was no other Celtc Boys Club. As for the USA, if crimes were committed over there, the victims need to contact the US authorities. I don't know, however, if there are time limitations.The 'separate entity' line surely falls apart given that the Celtic Boys Club coaches called Celtic FC when the allegations about Cairney were made, then Jack McGinn dealt with his resignation when they returned.
Yep, it would appear Celtic sacked him (made him resign).The 'separate entity' line surely falls apart given that the Celtic Boys Club coaches called Celtic FC when the allegations about Cairney were made, then Jack McGinn dealt with his resignation when they returned.
It was first team manager Liam Brady, the first team kit man John Kelman and the board of Celtic FC that facilitated it and made this situation go away. The Celtic FC board, Celtic 1st team manager manager Liam Brady and the boy's parents agreed the cover up and that the police would not be informedThere is the link to Celtic FC right there.
No contract could be offered without them being complicit
For me justice is still miles away from being done, the child abusers have started to be convicted but the enablers and people who covered up are still getting off scot free. I appreciate many of them may be dead now but people in high places covered this up. Hence the whole Hugh Birt getting black balled at Celtc thing and many other incidentsI don’t really care whether it’s celtic or Asda ,all I would like to see is absolute recognition and justice for survivors,it’s horrific and as unpalatable as it gets,justice has to run its course .
The parents should be looking at jail time as well.And the lads parents agreed not to contact the police in exchange for him being offered a professional contract. I hope those people sleep well at night with that in their minds every day. I honestly can’t get my head round how any parent could do that.
The old company is still part of the Plc group and it says so in their annual returns so they can in no way deny that the old Ltd company is linked to the plc.Wee Fergus would have foreseen all this happening with his knowledge of the suing culture in America/Canada. Probably why he changed their name from the Celic and athletic coy or whatever the fuk it was. They'll be claiming they were a separate entity next, wait and see.
'Inextricably linked'.....big differenceEveryone who looked the other way is as guilty as the perpetrators of these vile crimes and should be charged and brought before the courts and the scum should be held accountable for the sordid cover-up of young boys in their care.
The Bheasts are inexplicably linked to the RC church who we all know carry huge influence over many aspects of life in Scotland, and no stone should be left unturned in bringing this unholy cabal to justice.
The free reign which this rancid cult have has spread it's poisonous tentacles far and wide in government and the media and need to be exposed and to be held accountable.
Hopefully sooner rather than later.
I’m not sure you can get child abuse insurance?
I don't think there's an insurance company on the planet the gives you cover for harbouring and facilitating child rape
I’m surprised at that. It wouldn’t surprise me if they did have it if they could get it.You don't think, eh?
" (CNN) - Since the 1980s, the Catholic Church in the United States and its insurance companies have paid out more than $3.8 billion in lawsuits and claims involving allegations of clerical sexual abuse, according to a monitoring group... "
" If the Catholic church is sued, secret files and private documents could be made public. And insurance companies, which have already paid millions in private settlements, might have to pay much more for the church’s liability as new cases are brought forth. "
… and to be honest, it's not just the papists...
" The three companies that insure the majority of Protestant churches in America say they typically receive upward of 260 reports each year of young people under 18 being sexually abused by clergy, church staff, volunteers or congregation members. "
Reading the above, and knowing the very close association between celtc FC and the catholic church, you would be extremely naïve to continue to believe that the former has not sought out advice from the latter on how to handle the tsunami of claims that are about to befall them.
Make no mistake, these claims are coming, and will have to be paid out, so do you seriously think that horrible club intends to pay out from their own funds? The same funds that service their loans, pay for the upkeep of their stadium and training complex, pay their wage bill, and finance new signings? In a nutshell, the very same funds that keeps them in business?
Such an eventuality could quite probably crucify them to an irreparable extent.
It's inconceivable that they haven't been considering the worst case scenario, and I for one would bet that if they didn't already have the relevant insurance, when they heard the first rumblings heralding these recent court cases there would have been a high level summit of the very top papes in Scotland (and possibly beyond) to consider all that could be done to preserve as far as possible "the good name" of their club and minimize any continuing damage to their brand.
Trust me, I desperately hope that they have not taken these precautions, because it would financially fucking kill them in all probability, but there's no way I see them not learning from past experiences.
Maybe another reason that some of these stories won't face the light of day, how do the public view parents who come forward now for compensation having known and "accepted" it in the past, so their child could go on to have a football career? On another note, how do these children, now adults, view those same mentioned parents? Unforunately, the "justice" of getting the Club to take responsibility for these crimes against them is likely to be outweighed by the damage it would bring to their own families, hence we'll never know how many kids were and are still affected by Seperate entity FC.The parents of this boy who accepted the hush money from the beggars are deranged.You would surely want to kick the shit out of the monster who abused their boy and then start on the sick bastards offering the deal
