The shocking story of Holly GriegIn the summer of 2000, Hollie told her mother, Anne, that she had been repeatedlysexually abused by her father, Denis Charles Mackie and brother Greg. The abusehad begun when Hollie was just six years old. Hollie said that Greg had also beenabused by his father. Anne Greig reported this immediately to the local police station in Aberdeen. Duringthe course of that summer, Hollie, who has Down's Syndrome, began to providemore names of abusers. It transpired that Denis Mackie had been sharing hisdaughter with a ring of sexual abusers, which included a serving police officer withthe Grampian force, Terry Major and an Aberdeen sheriff, Graeme Buchanan.Medical and other evidence supported Hollie's account and Grampian Policeaccepted the truth of Hollie's statement. Nonetheless, no action was taken byGrampian Police against the perpetrators and despite Anne Greig's persistence, theProcurator Fiscal, now Lord Advocate, Elish Angiolini prevented any police actiontaking place.In fact, the authorities instead attempted to discredit and intimidate Anne by havingher forcibly taken to a mental institution, with the intention of handing Hollie back toher abuser father. Fortunately, Anne Greig had the presence of mind to have herself checked by a leading psychiatrist, who proclaimed her perfectly sane, a view withwhich even the institution were forced to concur.In the years that have followed, Anne Greig has persisted in her attempts to bring theabusers to justice, not only for the sake of her own children, but also to prevent thesedreadful practices continuing against others, which includes adults with learningdifficulties as well as children.It was only in 2009, when the News Of The World courageously broke the story,concentrating on the hitherto unheard of fact that Hollie had received payments fromthe Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority for crimes that have not even beeninvestigated.The measures to cover up this terrible story continue unbounded by the authorities.Several years ago, Denis and Greg Mackie went to live in Portugal. On 8th May2007, immediately following Madeleine McCann`s disappearance, Anne Greig,accompanied by a victim`s support witness, went to her now local police station inShrewsbury to tell them to alert the Portuguese Police, as despite the proven case of paedophile abuse, neither of the Mackies had a record of any kind. The McCannteam has accepted that the Mackies ought to have been questioned immediately. Itis now understood that the British Police failed to pass on these details to their Portuguese counterparts.Hence, the official cover up has even extended to detracting from the MadeleineMcCann investigation.
