Ted Heath indecent assault in Jersey

Detectives would have questioned former British Prime Minister Edward Heath over child abuse allegations if he were still alive, police said Thursday.

It's found that Sir Edward Heath would have been questioned over allegations of rape and indecent assault had he been alive today.

Claim: Heath allegedly indecently assaulted a 15-year-old boy during three paid sexual encounters.

Lord Macdonald QC, the former Director of Public Prosecutions, condemned Wiltshire Police for the way they handled the investigation, saying the report gives the allegations "entirely bogus credibility".

October 1970: British prime minister Edward Heath chatting with USA president Richard Nixon (1913 - 1994) at Chequers in Buckinghamshire, the official country residence of the British PM.

Heath negotiated the U.K.'s entry to the European Economic Community before he was supplanted by Margaret Thatcher as party leader in 1975.

"This would neither provide value or money or indeed a legitimate outcome of the guilt or innocence of Sir Edward Heath", he said. "It didn't know the circumstances, veracity, the risks, the complications, implications or other vulnerability factors - until a proportionate, professional and objective investigation was conducted it would be impossible to identify and safeguard any children and other vulnerable adults who may be at risk today". It had gone "where the evidence took us".

Sir Edward Heath, who was Conservative Prime Minister from 1970 to 1974, was a member of the congregation of Salisbury Cathedral from 1985 until his death in 2005.

Mr Seligman has called for a judge-led inquiry into Wiltshire Police's investigation, for the evidence to be examined and independent findings to then be made public.

Fourteen separate police forces received claims alleging that Heath had carried out acts of sexual abuse, leading to a two-year investigation called Operation Conifer. The former Prime Minister is not present to defend himself. "I believe this was the right moral, ethical and professional thing to do". It was just not of interest to him, ' he added.

"When I grew up I formed a closer relationship with him". The publication of that report is expected in the next few weeks. Sir Edward Garnier said the conclusions related to seven outstanding matters were an attempt to justify the police inquiry. "It has turned in to a game show and is there to protect the police's reputation", he told the Guardian. In December 2016, Veale was stung into a vehement denunciation of the criticism.

The force had been heavily criticised for its role in the investigation into historic sex abuse but the panel tasked with scrutinising investigation decisions said the inquiry had been "fair, sensitive and rigorous with regard to both victim and suspects".

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has said it would investigate further.

Following its release on Thursday, Lord Hunt of Wirral, chair of the Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation, and Lord Armstrong of Ilminster, former Cabinet Secretary, released a joint statement slamming the report as "profoundly unsatisfactory".
