Former officers first investigated the allegations more than 30 years ago – and they have now provided testimony to Scotland Yard’s new probe. The two ex-officers have provided written statements to current investigating officers. Further testimony from the two officers also links Jimmy Savile to the Westminster paedophile ring.
The Mirror reports: Paedophile politicians at Westminster murdered young boys at sex orgies, say two former Scotland Yard detectives, writes Mark Conrad and Keir Mudie in the Sunday People.
The retired officers who first investigated the allegations more than 30 years ago have provided explosive testimony to the Yard’s new probe.
The pair have made written statements to the Met Police about the VIP network which they claim was known as The Untouchables because they were too powerful to bring to justice.
It is believed the ex-cops – one of them Special Branch – told the current inquiry that they were ordered NOT to investigate the group.
Their dramatic new evidence appears to corroborate claims by a victim known as Nick that he witnessed a young boy being murdered by an MP.
The former Special Branch officer told police: “There was a significant paedophile group in Parliament who were untouchable to the police.”
The two former policemen came forward at the same time to present their shocking new claims before the Met announced they had launched a homicide investigation.
The statement from the Yard was a significant development in the scandal which threatens to expose murders and child abuse at the heart of Government.
Last week the Sunday People and the Exaro investigation website revealed that detectives from the Met Police’s paedophile unit had already received chilling testimony from a witness who says he saw an MP kill a boy in front of him.
The evidence from the two ex-policemen seems to lend weight to Nick’s shocking testimony.
Campaigning Labour MP Tom Watson, who has led calls for a full-scale inquiry, said yesterday: “These allegations show the investigation is gathering even more momentum.
“These are serious allegations that cannot be ignored. It is not only witnesses who are coming forward – it’s police as well.
“I would urge any other officers from the time to come forward to the Met and give their evidence.
“They may have been reticent in the past but now is the time to share their experiences. With their help, we may finally be able to uncover terrible injustices.”
The two policemen have alleged to detectives from Operation Fairbank – set up to investigate historical child abuse – about the existence of the sinister group.
They said their efforts to expose an evil network at the heart of the Establishment were thwarted.
The two officers have also provided information about the identities of VIP members of the paedophile ring. Among their claims is new information about disgraced former MP Cyril Smith.
The new testimony backs up the Sunday People’s reports earlier this year that Smith, who died four years ago aged 82, was linked to a wider network.
We revealed the Rochdale MP was a regular visitor to the infamous Elm Guest House in south-west London.
Now the two former officers have told police that Smith was part of the gang of “Untouchables” they were not allowed to investigate.
Further testimony from the two officers also links Jimmy Savile to the Westminster paedophile ring.
The BBC star presenter was unmasked as a serial child-sex pervert after hundreds of victims came forward following his death at the age of 84 in 2011.
But this is the first time testimony has surfaced linking Savile to Establishment paedophiles.
