The late Prime Minister sir Edward Heath would have been questioned by police over allegations of sexual abuse of children, if would be alive. This was stated by the chief constable of Wiltshire Mike Vale, reports The Independent.
According to him, there are at least seven credible evidence, covering the period from 1956 to 1992, which could become the basis for conversations of law enforcement officials with the former head of the government.
Speech, in particular, about the alleged rape of 11-year-old boy, impropriety in relation to 10-year-old boy and sexually assaulting a 15-year-olds. According to Weil, the police have “a compelling and obvious reason to investigate” these witness statements.
In turn, the former Prosecutor General of great Britain Lord Kenneth MacDonald, accused the police of Wiltshire that the guards “covered by the name” the man who can’t defend themselves. “This completely undermines the credibility of their investigation that did not lead to the obtaining of evidence which can be accepted by the court,” said McDonald.
Preliminary investigation by the police under the code name “Conifer” began in 2015 and was aimed at finding evidence of sexual crimes, allegedly committed a Hit and cost taxpayers 1.5 million pounds of strelinhof. During the investigation, was arrested three people suspected of cruel treatment with children. Two of them were released without charge, another is in custody.
