He has been named as one of a number of paedophiles by a man, now in his forties, who claims to have been abused over a period of three years at Dolphin Square.
The information has been passed to Scotland Yard to consider as part of its investigation into historic allegations of sexual abuse at Westminster.
Hayman, referred to as a diplomat, was pointed out in a photograph shown to man, ‘Nick’, by Exaro, an investigative website.
Hayman was also a key member of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), a pressure group that advocated legalising sex between adults and children.
The Mirror reports: A chance to nail Hayman came in 1978, when police raided the homes of PIE members.
Among them was Hayman, who had left a package containing disgusting material on a London bus.
At a flat he rented in Notting Hill, 45 volumes of diaries containing graphic sexual fantasies, often involving children, were found.
The flat was registered to a “Mr Henderson” – actually Hayman.
The then director of public prosecutions, Sir Thomas Hetherington, advised against charging him.
He was cautioned but not prosecuted. Hayman reportedly told police: “If this comes out I shall either shoot myself or go to Brazil.”
In 1981, five other PIE members went on trial for conspiracy to corrupt public morals.
Hayman was referred to during the case but not by name. Later that year he was finally exposed by crusading MP Geoffrey Dickens.
Mr Dickens used Parliamentary privilege to name Hayman to fellow MPs in the House of Commons.
He demanded to be told why Hayman had not been prosecuted.
Hayman was fined for gross indency in 1984 but escaped justice for paedophilia.
Nick believes the establishment closed ranks to protect high-profile perverts.
Dolphin Square in London was named last week as one of the locations where abuse was carried out.
