Lord Janner is unfit to stand trial over child sexual abuse offences dating back 50 years, a High Court judge has ruled.

Mr JuBBC Newsstice Openshaw told the Old Bailey the 87-year-old peer had “advanced and disabling dementia”.

Both prosecution and defence barristers had agreed at a previous hearing that Greville Janner was not well enough to take part in a criminal trial.

Lord Janner faces 22 counts of sex offences against boys.

Greville Janner was made Lord Janner of Braunstone in 1997. He remains a life peer, but has been on leave of absence since 2014. He was suspended from the Labour Party in April.

    It’s how it has always worked…untouchable and heavily rewarded for the crimes they commit.. Sick and very typical of how our political system works.
