Rolf Harris: New Sex Offence Allegations

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Convicted entertainer Rolf Harris, 84, is back in the interrogation room in connection with fresh alleged sex offences.


According to the Daily Record:

The 84-year-old attended a police station in Stafford near to the prison where he is currently serving a five year sentence for attacks on young girls.

Rolf Harris has been interviewed under caution over fresh sex offence allegations.

Harris, 84, was spoken to by detectives on Tuesday and Wednesday at a police station in Stafford.

The disgraced entertainer is serving a five-year sentence at Stafford Prison for a string of sex attacks on four young girls after he was convicted last July.

The Met did not name Harris, but said in a statement: “We can confirm officers from Operation Yewtree have interviewed an 84-year-old man under caution in connection with allegations of sexual offences, under the strand of the investigation we have termed ‘Others’.

“He was interviewed on Tuesday 3 Feb and Wednesday 4 Feb at a police station in Stafford.

Operation Yewtree was sparked by the revelations surrounding paedophile Jimmy Savile and has three strands.

One concerns Savile’s crimes exclusively and a second relates to allegations against Savile and others.

Harris’ interview falls under the third strand – accusations unconnected to Savile but which emerged as a result of the publicity surrounding the case.

Police said inquiries are continuing.
