Help British Crusader Against Child Sexploitation

Jonathan Wedger is one of a very small number of British police officers who, while still on active duty, spoke out strongly against the cover up of child sex abuse. He has paid a huge price for his bravery and commitment to protect children. In his long and lonely struggle for justice, Jonathan urgently needs our prayers and financial support.
Jonathan Wedger is a decorated Police Detective and devoted Christian in London, England. Jon was performing his Professional and Biblical duty to serve and protect, trying to shield vulnerable children from sexual exploitation. Since Jon went public with the situation, he has been harassed and persecuted by his own police force, who want the facts of Jon’s investigation covered up. It appears that senior police officers are keen to protect people who profit from child prostitution or in pimping them out.
Jon’s salary was cut in half in January 2017, and the police intended to reduce his salary to zero in June 2017. The relentless bullying that Jon has endured for being a whistle-blower has brought on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He applied for medical retirement from the police, which would at least bring him his pension, but this had been refused.
Most British police officers dare not speak out against such corruption while they are actively serving, for fear of a backlash and of losing their pension. The English newspaper, the London Evening Standard, reported on Friday 7 August 2015 that dozens of retired British police officers were "desperate to tell the truth" over claims of sex abuse by important and influential men; yet they too have been told to keep quiet.
Jon had an excellent record before he exposed the police's cover up of child prostitution in London. He had received eight senior officer commendations, three service medals and many quality of service reports. His investigative ability has been praised by local, national and international media. Jon had even gained a place in Scotland Yard's Black museum as the result of one of his investigations.
Jon is a single parent of four children and has a family to support, and Tyler, one of his sons, had a serious accident in March 2017. Please pray for Tyler’s full and swift recovery.
UPDATE: November, 2017
Tyler's condition is improving and Jonathan is now on pension.
After suffering a breakdown in 2016 brought on by post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) caused by the wrongful treatment he received from the Police establishment, Jonathan Wedger has begun a lawsuit against Scotland Yard for damages. He seeks compensation for the psychiatric injuries incurred from work-related stress brought about by the bullying he received for exposing child abuse and corruption at the highest levels of British society. He claims the bullying began after he filed an intelligence report alleging that police colleagues were covering up the prostitution and pimping out of girls as young as nine. The claim includes requested compensation for being forced into early retirement after 23 years of honorable service with the Metropolitan Police. His local Member of Parliament, Sir Mike Penning supports his claims.
Sir Mike indicates that “There are some really serious answers to deal with both on what John says happened and the way he was treated afterwards.”
The Metropolitan Police responded via a spokesperson saying ,“We have received a civil claim from Jon Wedger. We are considering the claim and will respond in due course as required by the court procedures."
Continued support for Mr. Wedger, a father of four, is greatly appreciated as he continues his pursuit of justice and overcoming the abuse he suffered while standing up for what is right.
