Fairfax Media’s 2GB radio host Alan Jones is under investigation by the NSW Police for the statutory rape of underage boys in the 1980’s. I have raised the issue with Fairfax Media, the ABC Board and the Prime Minister’s office and I am still awaiting responses.
One specific complaint to the police is by a man (Victim A) who says when he was an underage boy in the 1980’s he was picked up by Alan Jones at a place known as The Wall in Sydney and Mr Jones paid him for sex. The Wall is in Darlinghurst Road Sydney and has been a known pick-up place for male prostitutes “rentboys” (many of them underage) since the 1960’s. The allegation by Victim A is similar with the fact that Alan Jones was arrested in a UK toilet in 1988 for “outraging public decency” and ‘committing an indecent act’ with another man as per the below 1988 newspaper front page.
A number of people have contacted me regarding paedophile allegations against Alan Jones since I wrote an article in May 2015 titled “2GB’s Alan Jones sent love letters to a school boy. Why has he never been charged with grooming?” (Click here to read the article) The article focused on documented evidence in the 2006 Chris Masters book Jonestown which showed Alan Jones grooming school boys when he was a teacher in the 1970’s at The Kings School in Parramatta Sydney.
The only people who groom school boys are paedophiles
In November 2015 the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse issued the below statement:
“If you were sexually abused at The King’s School or Tudor House Preparatory School, or have any information about sexual abuse of a child at The King’s School or Tudor House Preparatory School, the Royal Commission would like to hear from you,” (Click here to read more)
The statement by the Royal Commission would have tipped off Alan Jones that he was a target of the Royal Commission and he would have likely started to plan how he was going to defend himself.
There is evidence a mile long showing that Alan Jones is a paedophile and it is time he was brought to account. Jones has used his position to protect other criminals such as known paedophile and perjurer John Marsden, Cardinal George Pell, former corrupt police and recently convicted murderers Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara and corrupt crown prosecutor Margaret Cunneen etc.
Correspondence with Fairfax Media, the ABC Board and the Prime Minister’s office
Below is the email that I sent to Fairfax Media. I also sent one to the ABC given Alan Jones has been on the QandA program and is scheduled to be on there again on Monday the 27th June 2016. I have also sent an email to the Prime Minister given he has done a number of recent interviews with Alan Jones.

Subject: Alan Jones being investigated by NSW Police for statutory rape of school boys in the 1980’s – media request
Dear Mr Hywood, Ms Hambly and Mr Hatch
I am a journalist and publish a website and have some questions for an article that I will publish on Saturday 25th June 2016 so it would be grateful if you could answer the questions today. The questions relate to Alan Jones who works for Fairfax Media as a radio announcer on Fairfax’s 2gb radio station.
- Are you aware that the NSW Police are currently investigating Alan Jones, Fairfax Media and 2gb radio announcer, for statutory rape of school boys in the 1980’s?
- Are you aware that Alan Jones is a known paedophile who groomed school boys when he was a teacher at The King’s School in Parramatta Sydney in the 1970’s?
- Are you aware that documented evidence against Alan Jones for child grooming is well-known and freely available in the book Jonestown (2006) with extracts detailing the child grooming easily accessible on the internet including on Fairfax Media’s websites?
- Are you aware that the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is currently investigating abuse at The King’s School which includes the time when Alan Jones was a teacher there?
- Are you aware that Alan Jones is good friends with corrupt former police officers Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara who have both recently been convicted of the death of Jamie Gao?
- Given the uncontested evidence and allegations against Alan Jones do you plan on sacking Alan Jones or at the very least standing him down from further duties until the NSW Police and Royal Commission have completed their investigations?
Can you please respond ASAP so I can publish your response in my article.

Alan Jones is a paedophile on the run
Jones is currently being investigated by the NSW police, the Royal Commission is investigating sexual abuse at The Kings School is Sydney including the period when Alan Jones was a teacher there. I’ve also been investigating and have already written 2 articles about Jones criminal conduct and past. I also started a petition to have the Royal Commission investigate Jones which has over 590 signatures. (Click here to see the petition)
Alan Jones and paedophile John Marsden
John Marsden openly admitted in evidence he gave in court that he frequented The Wall in Sydney and picked up rentboys which is exactly what Alan Jones is alleged to have done.
Marsden “said he went to the Wall, in Darlinghurst, to pick up partners during the ’70s but less so in the late ’80s and early ’90s, when the “commercial trade” or rent boys began to solicit there.” (Click here to read more)
John Marsden was a lawyer and President of the Law Society of New South Wales and was outed by Channel 7 in 1995 for being a paedophile. Marsden sued Channel Seven and eventually won. But while Channel Seven failed to prove that Marsden was a paedophile there were finding by the judge that made it clear he was. Alan Jones was a good friend of John Marsden and defended him publicly. Below is from Wikipedia:
“In 2001, after 214 days of hearings, Justice David Levine ruled that Seven had failed to prove its allegations of child sexual abuse. Although Levine ruled in Marsden’s favour on the allegations of child sexual abuse, his findings were deeply critical of Marsden in other regards. He found that Marsden had lied about several issues in the trial, notably his role in drafting a statutory declaration by one of the witnesses. He also found that on the balance of probabilities, Marsden had used convicted rapist and murderer Les Murphy to persuade a witness to change his position, and had probably persuaded two other witnesses to influence another.” (Click here to read more)
John Marsden would not have needed to perjure himself and intimidate witnesses to change their evidence if he wasn’t a paedophile.
Alan Jones, Roger Rogerson, Glen McNamara and Margaret Cunneen
Alan Jones has had a long close relationship with corrupt former cop Roger Rogerson who along with Glenn McNamara was last week found guilty of the murder of Jamie Gao. Peter FitzSimons at the SMH reported in 2010:
Alan Jones, Cardinal Pell and the ABC’s QandA program
Alan Jones was on the ABC’s QandA on the 7th March 2016 and defended Cardinal George Pell. Cardinal Pell headed up the Catholic Church in Australia and was involved in and oversaw a massive cover-up of abuse of children over decades.
Alan Jones defended Pell saying “he was 28 years of age in 1969 when all this happened” which is a ridiculous statement. Jones seems to want people to believe that no abuse or cover-ups happened before or after 1969. The victims were a lot younger than 28 years of age but Alan Jones didn’t mention that. At the time Jones said that he would have known that the Royal Commission are investigating child abuse at The Kings School and possibly known that the NSW police are also investigating him. Maybe Jones was testing a defence for himself because he was about 28 years old to early 30’s when he was a teacher at The Kings School grooming boys. Jones is scheduled to go on QandA again next Monday 27th June 2016 and I have written an email to the ABC Board asking if it appropriate given the police investigation etc.
While the police and Director of Public Prosecutions might try to sweep the Alan Jones complaint under the carpet the Royal Commission is another matter. They really have no choice but to have public hearings given what is already in the public domain about Jones. If they don’t have public hearings into Alan Jones then serious questions will need to be asked about the Royal Commissioner.
If I get responses from the Prime Minister’s office, the ABC and Fairfax Media I will update this post or write another post.
