Today, a copy of the book from Hillsborough to Lambeth was presented at the offices of the Centre for Professional and Personal Development in Hornsey, north London. Brian Pead’s tutors on the Diploma and then the Advanced course were Jenny Sandelson and Lynne Kaye. Both are highly experienced psychosexual therapists and Lynne Kaye is herself – like Brian Pead – a former survivor of childhood sexual abuse. At his unlawful trial at Southwark Crown Court in December 2009 (a full account of which is to be published in the forthcoming book for whom the Bell tolled), Brian Pead instructed his barrister, Dominic Bell, to call both Jenny Sandelson and Lynne Kaye as witnesses in his defence. Bell failed to contact these expert witnesses and the Jury was never told about Pead’s own abuse and his in-depth research into the subject of child sexual abuse (which is still ongoing).
The All Around Justice office today received a letter from the Attorney General’s Office, which acknowledged receipt of the book from Hillsborough to Lambeth.
Today, Invenire Press telephoned Alex Passman, the award-winning employment lawyer who represented Brian Pead on the first day of the ‘Investigation’ hearing held by Catherine Twist on 19 April 2007. Mr Passman confirmed that he had received the presentation copy of the book and that, although he has not yet been able to read the book in its entirety, he has read the sections that specify his involvement. He also confirmed that they are are a true and accurate account of the events that are reported within the book.
Michael Bird, co-author of the book from Hillsborough to Lambeth, received a letter from the Rt. Hon. Andy Burnham, MP who was sent a presentation copy, along with many other Members of Parliament. Mr Burnham was the first to respond. Mr Burnham – who worked tirelessly in support of the Hillsborough families in their search for justice – said in his letter that he had “…read the book with great interest…” and he added “…I commend your search for justice…” Mr Burnham played a key part in uncovering the scandal behind the death of 96 football fans who died in the Hillsborough Disaster.
