The story of one man’s life-long struggle to expose a child abuse scandal on Jersey Island – a crown dependency ruled directly by the Queen.
It became known as the House of Horrors. The Children’s Home on the Island of Jersey where hundreds of children were sexually abused, including by entertainer Jimmy Savile.
The discovery of the child abuse at Haut De La Garenne would land up exposing the dark side of a global elite willing to look the other way in exchange for the tax shelter the island provides them.
Stuart Syvret was once a promising young Senator and Jersey’s Health Minister until he tried to expose the child abuse scandal and was fired on trumped up charges. He’s paid the price for the rest of his life.
Stuart joined LB and Zev Shalev on Narativ to tell his story.

PART 2: MONEY ISLAND: A Royal Shame
The price you pay for saving children from child abuse and Jersey which is considered a crown dependency and is under the direct control of the Queen. It’s the place many foreign corporations and the world richest people hide their money to avoid taxes. Among them many members of the Russian mob that have in recent years strangled the British economy, corrupted its leaders and ultimately resulted in Brexit.
Stuart won a huge victory when the BBC dedicated a prime time documentary to his life-long work to expose the child abuse in Jersey. It’s because of Stuart that children are safe in Jersey today and hopefully the millionaires who call the island home can do something in return for Syvret to say thank you.
