Bodies search: Chief Minister's statement
Chief Minister Senator Frank Walker issued the following statement at 5.30pm on Saturday:-
“It is with deep horror and sadness that I have learnt today of the discovery of what would appear to be the remains of a child at Haut de la Garenne.
The discovery was made as part of the Police enquiry into historic child abuse. Despite the passage of time, my ministers and I are determined that, if foul play was involved, whoever committed this outrage should be swiftly found and brought to justice.
At the beginning of this investigation I gave my word that no stone would remain unturned and the Police will continue to have our full support and all the resources they need to pursue their enquiries.
It is imperative that our children are safe in Jersey and I believe that today they are. It is however clear that this may not always have been the case and although we can’t right the wrongs of the past, we will do everything in our power to assist the Police in seeking out the person or persons responsible.”
Errr okay, but what about an apology to Stuart Syvret now?
