NSPCC suspend senior officer

July 25, 2003

The children’s charity NSPCC has suspended its chief spokesman for intervening in a court case to attest the good character of a man accused of sexually abusing three girls….Gerry Tissier, head of media relations and an organiser of the NSPCC campaign to stamp out child abuse, was sent home pending an independent inquiry….He told Community Care magazine: “What I did was in a personal capacity, not as a representative of the NSPCC. And what I did was to fulfil my public duty to give evidence in court when called upon to do so.”
