- Labour peer, 86, faces 22 allegations of sex offences dating back to 1969

- Lord Janner, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2009, denies claims
Lord Janner stepped out in London after being ruled too ill to stand trial over alleged sex offences
Alleged paedophile Lord Janner stepped out for a stroll in London after being ruled too ill to face charges over child sex allegations.
Despite the high-profile debate continuing over whether he should stand trial over the historic claims, the Labour peer was seen out and about in the north of the capital.
In a hugely controversial decision which is currently under review, the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to charge the 86-year-old with a series of alleged sex attacks because of his increasingly severe Alzheimer’s.
Alison Saunders, the director of public prosecutions, maintains he is too unwell to stand trial, despite evidence that he may have abused children.
Lord Janner, who was diagnosed with dementia in 2009, has always denied claims that he was a paedophile and his family insists he is innocent of 22 alleged incidents.
Earlier this month, amid growing pressure from alleged victims, Ms Saunders was warned that she should be called before a Commons committee to explain her decision not to put Lord Janner on trial.
It came after it emerged that the Labour grandée had voted 203 times in the House of Lords even after he granted power of attorney to his children because of his dementia.
The former MP also attended Parliament 634 times after his family took control of his financial affairs in April 2009, claiming £104,365 in taxpayer-funded allowances in the process.
He even served as a company director for his firm West Heath Road Seasons Ltd until six days before being ruled too unwell to be tried for suspected child abuse.
And he was appointed to Parliament’s joint committee on consolidation bills – which considers how to combine complex acts – in June last year, six months after detectives raided his home in London.
A senior barrister has now been brought in to review the controversial decision not to charge Lord Janner over alleged child sex crimes.
The CPS announced that the unnamed QC had been hired to give an independent assessment of the case.
The barrister – who has had no previous involvement with the case – will decide whether or not it is in the public interest to charge the former Labour MP because of his illness.
If the review rules that Ms Saunders’ decision was wrong and that Lord Janner is fit to stand trial, the peer will face the prospect of a trial over the alleged sex crimes committed over several decades.
Ms Saunders has previously admitted that Lord Janner should have been prosecuted on three separate occasions – in 1991, 2002 and 2007, but botched investigations each time meant he escaped a prosecution.
Lord Janner has been accused of preying on young boys at three Leicester care homes between 1969 and 1989.
The Labour grandée is accused of 22 child sex offences, all of which he and his family deny. He has not been charged due to his dementia, with which he was diagnosed in 2009
