It’s taken me two months to get confirmation of this story from The Independent on Sunday [21st July] but I’m now in a position to confirm that it is true. Confirmation that a file had been passed to the CPS regarding a “former senior cabinet minister” did not come from anyone connected to The Independent on Sunday.
I’d like to specifically draw your attention to the first paragraph which I’ve quoted below.
I hope that it should give some indication of the tenacity of the Op Fernbridge team in pursuing certain individuals.
A former senior cabinet minister is now the subject of a rape allegation currently being considered by the Crown Prosecution Service. Police investigating possible child abuse at the Elm Guest House in West London have submitted a file on the former minister, and the CPS is expected to come to a decision over the matter during the summer. The claims are not believed to relate to the abuse of minors at the guesthouse, and the alleged victim was over the age of consent.
