The victim of horrifying sex attacks at the hands of a child protection boss was abused so badly, doctors thought he had appendicitis.
Dad-of-four John Stewart, 42, has waved his anonymity after winning a 14-year fight to see beast Daniel Ross – the man who should have been protecting him as a vulnerable youngster in the 1980s – finally brought to justice.
Ross, 62, who was also a special police constable, is facing jail after being found guilty of abusing his position as a Chairman of Glasgow’s Children’s Panel to groom youngsters for sickening sex attacks.
In one case he abused a teenager in his office moments before a meeting to decide the youngster’s future, reports the Daily Record.
Some of Ross’s victims only came forward after the Record revealed his arrest in November 2013.
And John – who had his appendix removed as a 14-year-old after being abused by Ross and passed around his paedophile ring of friends – believes the case is the tip of a gruesome iceberg that goes to the heart of Scotland’s establishment.
