Untrue allegations by a local sex offender: a response PDF Print E-mail

A registered sex-offender in Cornwall, Mr Malcolm Lidbury (who also posts and e-mails as “The Pink Pasty”, “Gay History Cornwall”, and “Sprocket Trust”) has recently circulated allegations about The Intercom Trust which are entirely untrue, and which we regard as defamatory. These allegations relate to our care of victims and survivors of sexual abuse.

Intercom has provided recent help, support or advocacy to 75 victims or survivors of historic or current sexual abuse, grooming and sexual assault. User-satisfaction with our service from these 75 is 100%. The ages of these service-users ranged from under 12 to over 80. More than half were from Cornwall; a quarter from Devon County; others were from Plymouth, Torbay, Dorset and Somerset. 71% of them were male.

Like Cornwall Council, Devon & Cornwall Police, Cornwall NHS, and others, The Intercom Trust is occasionally the target of Mr Lidbury’s implacable and groundless abuse. We usually ignore it, but have issued this response on this occasion because these allegations are not only untrue but also in our view defamatory, and he claims to have circulated these latest allegations widely.

For those who are not aware of the background, Mr Lidbury was convicted of a serious sexual offence against his adopted fourteen-year-old son in 1988, and imprisoned. In October 2006 evidence of his being a continuing risk to young and vulnerable people was brought before Truro Crown Court, and after a long hearing over more than one day, at which he was represented by his own barrister, he was made the subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order, which is still in force.

The judge stated in his summing-up in October 2006 that in respect of one part of his evidence “we are satisfied that [Mr Lidbury] was wholly untruthful”. Other phrases to the same or similar effect may be found throughout the summing-up.We say the same of these latest developments.
