This is Hollies' story...

"In the October 2009 print edition of the UK Column, we reported in our article “BBC Hides Truth
of Girl’s Sexual Abuse Ordeal” the shocking ordeal of [a girl with Down's Syndrome], Hollie Greig,
who was horribly abused by an Aberdeen paedophile ring, over a period of ten years. After
investigating and planning a documentary, the BBC abruptly dropped the case, despite admitting
that Hollie was a reliable and accurate witness. It is important to stress that both the police and
qualified medical experts have described Hollie as a competent and entirely honest witness.

From the age of just six, Hollie was repeatedly sexually abused by her father, Denis Charles
Mackie. Later, Mackie began sharing his daughter with a gang of paedophile “swingers” that has
been operating in Aberdeen for many years. The identities of a further seven child victims are
already known. There is no question that the gang are well-connected, efficiently organised and
totally ruthless. Our frightening story is that they are protected by individuals of “high standing”
within the Scottish establishment.

In 2000, after 14 years of terrified silence, Hollie eventually told her mother, Anne, about the
abuses. Formal statements were made to Grampian Police, providing all the horrifying details and
the names of the abusers. They included a senior Scottish Sheriff, a policeman, social workers, a
nurse, a solicitor, an accountant, a fire officer, married couples and others. Some of the rapes
were carried out at the homes of these individuals, including that of the Sheriff’s sister. Other
children were sometimes involved, including children of the paedophiles themselves.

The latest chapters in this astonishing and horrifying story about Hollie, and the seven other
abused children, have taken place over the past few weeks. The key issues are a continued
refusal by Grampian police to fully investigate the overwhelming evidence for the paedophile
rapes, and a wall of silence by the Scottish establishment.

Whilst there has been some general Scottish media coverage, notably in The Firm and the
Aberdeen Press and Journal, the media has been largely silent on what must be one of Scotlands
worst top level paedophile scandles. A key figure in the press silence is the Lord Advocate, in her
former role as Procurator Fiscal in Aberdeen, when in 2000 she is alleged to have effectively
buried the case. Was this to prevent her associate and most influential member of the paedophile
ring, Sheriff X, from being investigated, along with the other named members of the fifteen-strong
rape gang?

Elish Angiolini, the Scottish Lord Advocate, is in charge of all criminal prosecutions. She is
alleged to have reacted immediately to public calls for a full police investigation, by pressurising
against publication. Subsequently, and under considerable duress, The Firm published an
apology. Shortly afterwards the Press and Journal ran a story accurately describing the case,
mentioning a sheriff and police officer without identifying them. Angiolini was not discussed in the

Mrs Angiolini`s role in the case recently aroused further suspicion, when it was claimed that she
had used a private law firm, Levy and McRae, to issue warnings against all major Scottish
editors, threatening them with legal action if any mention was made of her involvement in the
case. Suspicious and angry, many individuals directly working to obtain justice for Hollie, as well
as a growing number of the general public, now consider that key establishment figures, many
with direct responsibility for criminal investigations and justice, have made a concerted and
continuous effort to conceal the facts from the people of Scotland. Despite the pressure,
investigators and campaigners for Hollie continue to stress that they hold documentary proof of
the Lord Advocate’s actions, as well as proof that she has repeatedly failed to tell the whole truth
about her connections with the Hollie abuse case for whatever reason.

The senior partner in the Law Firm, Peter Watson, who is also head of litigation, is understood to
have refused to comment as to whether the firm’s fees have been billed to Mrs Angiolini
personally, or if they are being paid by the Scottish taxpayer.

Mrs Angiolini’s office decided in December 2009 that they would not pursue the case due to
“insufficient evidence.” Corroborating evidence by private investigators and researchers indicates
that other than Hollie, not one of the twenty-four named abusers and victims has even been
questioned by Grampian Police.

This follows the pattern of 2000, when the crimes and perpetrators were first reported. At that
time, the police later admitted that only one of the gang, Hollie`s father, had even been

The UK Column is aware that investigators have just received from the Crown Office, after years
of rebuttals, the Post Mortem report of Robert David Greig, brother of Hollie`s mother Anne.
Robert died mysteriously in an alleged car fire in 1997. Despite extreme inconsistencies in
witness statements and circumstances, no inquest took place and the cause of death was
officially due to smoke inhalation.

The Post Mortem stated that Robert has suffered considerable damage to his skull, two broken
ribs and a broken sternum. Informal professional medical opinion so far is of the view that Robert
had been severely beaten, had alcohol forced down his throat and then thrown into the burning

Although this was not known at the time, Hollie, in 2001, told her mother that just prior to his
unexplained death, Robert had caught Hollie`s father sexually abusing her.

The campaign for justice for Hollie, and other vulnerable victims of paedophiles in England and
South Wales, not only goes on, but has intensified as outraged members of the public have
flooded Aberdeen with leaflets naming all current members of the gang, including the head of a
special school. All Aberdeen Councillors and MPs have also been alerted, but with little effect.
There appears to be a conspiracy of establishment silence where the abuse of Hollie is
concerned. Many people in Aberdeen are asking just who possesses the courage and decency to
stand up against these staggering and shocking crimes against most vulnerable members of
society? Certainly not their elected national and local representatives.

UK Column volunteers continue to be shocked by the quantity and quality of evidence reaching
them on the subject of paedophile and sexual abuse against young and vulnerable children in
care and otherwise. The common theme is that victims and their supporters are unable to get any
real support from Members of Parliament, Local Councillors, the Judiciary, Police and other
‘officials’. Many describe the creation of a wall of silence, often accompanied by targetted
intimidation against the victims.

Recently a policeman personally told the UK Column that police had themselves experienced
their own paedopile investigations suddenly being dropped by senior police officers. He added “If
you want to really get to the paedophiles you should look at Westminster”. The implications of this
statement are frightening – a paedophile ring amongst our political leaders – the political elite
which has control of education and Social Services? The general public needs to open its eyes
and confront this evil – and fast."
