Accused Proctor's Emotional Reaction To Abuse Claims

Watch former MP Harvey Proctor's emotional reaction to the claims that he was part of a VIP sex abuse ring in Westminster.

 

Proctor has been questioned twice by police investigating claims of historic sex abuse and murder by high-ranking figures in Westminster in the 1970s and 1980s.

"I have been accused of three murders, two committed by my own hand. I am not a murderer," he insisted. In 1987, Mr Proctor quit the Commons after pleading guilty to acts of gross indecency after a sex scandal involving male prostitutes.

Mr Proctor told LBC's Iain Dale that the abuse allegations had wrecked his life: "It has lost me my job, it has wrecked 28 years of rehabilitation, since 1987. It has forced me out of my private life in which I was perfectly happy and content. 

"It has been a very difficult time in my life and I’ve had some difficult times."

Proctor insisted in the exclusive radio interview that if there was organised abuse going on in Westminster at the time he was an MP, he knew nothing about it.

"I am sure that there has been historic child sexual abuse and I made it clear in my statement that I have the utmost sympathy and support for genuine victims.

"It may well be that the odd MP here and there may well have done something but not in concert, in a gang, in parties as has been alleged by the police...If there was [an organised ring] I did not know about it at the time and I certainly was not involved in it."
