Operation Yewtree

The Sun are reporting that SIR Jimmy Savile is to be branded a manipulative paedophile by FIVE women who claimed he abused them as kids.

The legendary DJ and TV host - who died last October aged 84 - will be accused on an ITV documentary of molesting girls as young as 14.

Some of the women were pupils of Duncroft Approved School for Girls in Staines, Surrey, which Savile frequently visited in the 1970s.

Two of them claim he asked for sexual favours in return for treats and trips in his car.

Sources close to the programme - to be shown next Wednesday - said it features "shocking material that really lifts the lid on the icon".

Exposure - The Other Side Of Jimmy Savile is fronted by former Surrey police officer and child protection expert Mark Williams-Thomas. It took a year to make.

But Sir Jimmy's shocked niece Amanda McKenna, of Leeds, said: "The documentary makers should be ashamed for cashing in on a man who is dead and can't defend himself."

The BBC planned to broadcast similar claims on Newsnight shortly after his death.

But bosses shelved it and ran two tribute programmes celebrating his career instead.

Acuse him of something when he's not around to defend himself. Yeah, that'll teach him

There was a BBC investigation for newsnight iirc that was quietly shelved, wonder if that uncovered anything or its reason for being shelved was because it uncovered nothing.

re: Operation Yewtree

it looks pretty damning specially as BBC staff at the time are going on camera saying it was suspected.

re: Operation Yewtree

From what I've read. he was investigated for it.

it's intersting because if it is true then there must have been another celebrity who was aware of it going on.

and of course persons at the BBC.

re: Operation Yewtree

And accusing somebody whilst they are still alive, and are unable to disprove allegations is any better? Should we summarily dismiss all "he said, she said" types of allegations on that basis?

The papers are merely reporting what will be in a TV programme, so criticising them for it, is complete prejudiced and blinkered nonsense(no surprise there).

Some of the the initial allegations were made at the time and ignored or covered up.
Quote:
Mr Williams-Thomas was a child protection officer with Surrey Police and worked on the prosecution of pop impresario Jonathan King on charges of sex with underage boys.

Since leaving the police, he has become a consultant on child protection and fronted the ITV documentary To Catch A Paedophile.
He said: ‘Early last year I was asked by a contact if I was aware of allegations that had circulated for years about Savile and young girls and if I knew of an investigation into a complaint made to Surrey police in 2007.
‘When Savile died, I began an investigation and was put in contact with several women who alleged they had been abused by him.’
He was approached before Jimmy Savile died. The fact that the full investigation didn't start until after his death, seems to be more of a coincidence than anything else.

It is not just these women making accusations.
Quote:
The documentary also features damning contributions from former BBC production staff who reveal that the star’s predatory behaviour with girls as young as 12 was an open secret

If there is evidence which confirms he was a paedophile it shouldn't matter if he is dead or alive. Paedophilia is indefensible.
