A VICTIM of horrifying sex attacks at the hands of a Children’s Panel boss today opens his heart to the Record in a bid to expose Scotland’s secret shame of institutional child abuse.
Dad-of-four John Stewart, 42, has waved his anonymity after winning a 14-year fight to see beast Daniel Ross - the very 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.

And John - who had his appendix removed as a 14-year-old after being sodomised 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.
The married dad-of-four said: “I am overwhelmed with relief to see Ross finally brought to justice, but at the same time I am angry that it has taken all these years for that to happen.
“The easy thing would be to stay behind the scenes, but I want to speak out because I believe that there are hundreds of other victims in Scotland who were abused as children by people in positions of power.
“We have all seen what has happened in Rotherham and in London where a trickle of stories about institutional abuse has turned into a flood, and I think the same thing will happen in Scotland.”
