Breaking News: Operation Yewtree to target beloved pop superstar

Filthy celebs

Hot on the heels of the Max Clifford abuse conviction, the Daily Star have reported that Operation Yewtree officers are about to focus their investigations on a beloved pop superstar and a former politician:

” One of the world’s biggest music stars and a former politician are the new targets of anti-sex abuse police following the conviction of Max Clifford.

The publicity guru was jailed for eight years on Friday for a string of sex attacks on young women.

Sources say Operation Yewtree officers, spurred on by the Clifford verdict, are preparing cases against the two high-profile names.

The singer is accused of abusing a ten-year-old boy, who is said to have given a statement to officers last year.

The entertainer is already thought to have put a legal team together to discuss his options.

The former politician also faces historic allegations that he abused boys.

The Daily Star Sunday is not naming either man for legal reasons.

Police are also investigating more ­complaints about Clifford, who has yet to decide whether to appeal against his conviction­.

The verdict in his ­trial was an important ­result for officers on Yewtree, which was set up by the ­Metropolitan Police after the sex crimes of the late DJ Jimmy Savile, below, came to light.

The operation has been ­hammered by critics since several high-profile sex abuse trials ended without convictions.

Politician Nigel Evans and Corrie stars Bill Roache and Michael Le Vell were all cleared of sex charges.

Radio One DJ Dave Lee Travis was also cleared of 12 counts of sexual assault, although he now faces a new trial on three counts.

Comic Jimmy Tarbuck was ­arrested and spent nearly a year on bail before being told he would not face charges, while Jim ­Davidson was arrested and later told he faced no further action.

Former BBC producers William De’Ath and Ted Beston and DJ Mike Osman were also arrested and later told they would not be charged.And two other men, who have not been named, were arrested but faced no further action.

Ex-BBC chauffeur David Smith killed himself before making a court appearance.

In a trial expected to start this week, entertainer Rolf Harris faces 12 indecent assault charges.

Dr Michael Salmon, who worked at the world-renowned Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Bucks, is also to appear in court charged with rape and four indecent assaults.

Meanwhile, comic Freddie Starr, BBC DJ Paul Gambaccini, former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning and two other unnamed men are still on bail.

Most of the cases have been either official Yewtree ­investigations or probes launched by regional police forces after they received files from the Yewtree team.”

The clock is ticking on Britain’s dirty secrets.

It’s only a matter of time…

  1. Would the politician be Nick Clegg’s political sugar daddy and an ex European Commissioner by any chance?

  2. The queens honour list and those she made Sir is looking like a sex offenders list. Why havent they arrested MPs past and present and also arrest them including Nick Clegg , prime minister , Harriet Harman . And all the other perverts who knew what was going on and did nothing about it and if it means that this paedophile coaliation in power gets taken down so be it . If the true stories came out about what’s still going on it would bring the corrupt government down tomorrow and about time too.
