Op Yewtree: Rolf Harris, ‘Massive Blow’

Of all the allegations against ‘celebrities’ the one levelled against Rolf Harris has been the most difficult for me to come to terms with personally. That said, I was one of the few outlets to publish after he had been questioned by the Operation Yewtree police late last year because regardless of the high esteem I held him in, I was simply reporting the truth and the truth isn’t always what we’d wish it to be.

Victims will always have my support.

Shell-shocked Rolf Harris has vowed to his loved ones that he will fight the new sex allegations made against him.

A source said the TV star was devastated after he was rearrested last week in the UK.

And it emerged last night that three women in Australia came forward to police with information.

The 83-year-old entertainer had first been arrested in March after a woman from Britain claimed he abused her when she was a teenager.

Police in Australia yesterday confirmed their involvement in the new claims.

But a spokeswoman for the Australian Federal Police said: “As the AFP is assisting the Met police, who are the lead in this investigation, it would not be appropriate for us to comment further.”

A source close to the star said the fresh claims had been “a massive blow to Rolf”, and added: “He fully denied the original allegation but the fact that more people have come forward has come as a complete shock.

    Who would have thought that Harris himself was actually an evil abuser? Shocking!
