The Bomb Plotter & The Foster Child

Friday, 11 September 2009

Haringey, that bastion of child protection sent a child to live with convicted terrorist ringleader Abdulla Ahmed Ali.

The child was with the family at the time of Ali's arrest and only removed after the event.

Haringey may have even unwittingly supplied Ali with an element of camouflage for the plot - and risked the child being murdered with his other would-be victims.
According to evidence at the trial, Ali and his co-conspirators discussed taking children on board the flights to allay the suspicions of security staff.
It is not clear whether the Haringey foster child was among the children he proposed to use.

What dismal incompetents; the whole department needs a clear-out from top to bottom with new guidelines & new staff put in place.   Haringey Social Services is completely devoid of coherent, intelligent policy.

It's ironic that this should come to light on the same day that the govt's Vetting & Barring Scheme goes live - see previous post.
