‘I AM telling the truth’: Harvey Proctor’s accuser dismisses ex-MP’s ‘over-the-top theatrical performance’ as he denied claims of torture and child murder
- ‘Nick’ is Met’s key witness who has named up to 9 alleged VIP abusers
- Harvey Proctor has demanded Nick is outed and prosecuted over claims
- Star witness says he saw three children murdered by paedophile ring
- Now a businessman, he has handed over written and video evidence
The Westminster abuse victim who accused Harvey Proctor of raping and murdering two children and helping kill a third has been left ‘distressed’ by the ex-MP’s ‘over-the-top’ denial.
The child abuse survivor named only as ‘Nick’ is Scotland Yard’s number one witness in its investigation into the alleged VIP paedophile gang of politicians, civil servants and diplomats.
In a press conference yesterday Harvey Proctor said Nick, who is a ‘respectable businessman‘ now in his forties, has ‘wrecked his life’ and the reputation of eight others by naming them as members.
Critics have questioned why Operation Midland detectives probing abuse at Dolphin Square and the Elm Guest House appear to have hung their VIP child abuse investigation on Nick’s testimony.
War of words: Harvey Proctor, left yesterday, has called on child abuse victim ‘Nick’, right in a video, to be outed after police pursued his claims that the ex-MP allegedly abused and murdered children
In an extraordinary press conference yesterday former MP Harvey Proctor branded the allegations against him ‘ludicrous’.
He said: ‘I should be arrested, charged and prosecuted for murder and these awful crimes immediately so I can start the process of ridiculing these preposterous allegations in open court.
”Nick’ should be stripped of his anonymity and prosecuted for wasting police time and money.
Anger: Harvey Proctor says his life has been ‘ruined’ by Nick who is Scotland Yard’s key witness
‘The paranoid police have pursued a homosexual witch hunt on this issue.’
Last night Nick was said to be upset by Proctor’s statement.
Journalist Mark Watts, editor of the Exaro website, spoke to him afterwards and said: ‘Nick, as was entirely foreseeable, has been left distressed by Harvey Proctor’s over-the-top theatrics. It was a shameful performance.
‘Detectives on Operation Midland believed Nick was credible from first meeting with him. They still think him credible’.
Nick has told detectives he was regularly abused as a child by prominent men close to the Houses of Parliament.
He also made the extraordinary claim that in addition to abusing victims, the gang had killed at least three of them.
He recalled seeing one small boy murdered in the presence of a former Tory Cabinet Minister, and another asphyxiated by a Conservative MP at a central London townhouse.
He said last year: ‘I watched while that happened. I am not sure how I got out of that’.
The third murder is said to have occurred in broad daylight on a street in South-West London in 1979, when a member of the group deliberately ran over and killed a boy aged between 11 and 12.
He said he was one of between 15 and 20 children who would be picked up in cars and taken to hotels and apartments where they were physically and sexually abused.
He claims to have visited Dolphin Square on at least ten occasions and written account of his ordeal and three days of videotaped evidence.
In that he is said to have passed them Harvey Proctor’s name as well as Ted Heath and Leon Brittan among those alleged to have done ‘monstrous things’.
Mr Proctor also identified former armed forces head Lord Bramall, ex-MI6 chief Maurice Oldfield and Sir Michael Hanley, the former director general of MI5.
Row: Mr Proctor said he did not attend ‘sex parties’ at apartments in Dolphin Square (pictured) but Nick appears to have claimed that the former Tory MP did
Nick claims he was repeatedly abused for years in the 1970s and 80s and that he saw a Tory MP strangle a 12-year-old boy.
He was forced to drink alcohol before being beaten and raped while his head was held under the water in a bath.
Nick told of a decade of abuse at the hands of politicians and said members of the Establishment terrorised children and went on to kill three young boys.
He said he was in the room when a Conservative MP killed a 12-year-old boy inside the Dolphin Square apartment complex in the early 1980s.
He told the Sunday People newspaper last year he was driven to an orgy at the complex with the victim, knowing they were about to be abused by ‘powerful men’.
He said: ‘We looked at each other and saw the fear in each other’s eyes.
‘I had no idea of the horror of what was to happen. I watched while it happened. I’m not sure how I got out of that.’
Nick said that 18 months later he saw another boy being killed in front of a different MP and described both politicians as ‘brutal’.
He recounted being raped in a bath while his head was held underwater and being ordered to ‘thrash’ another boy.
A third boy, aged 10 or 11, was deliberately run over in South London, he said.
Nick told police he was abused by his own father before being ‘handed over’ to the gang when he was 11.
He claimed he was abused by the group from 1975 to 1984 and that two well-known Tory politicians raped him and beat him.
Nick said he was one of up to 20 boy victims who were openly taken into Dolphin Square and other locations to be abused.
Nick told the BBC his alleged abusers were ‘very organised‘ and arranged for chauffeur-driven cars to collect boys from schools and drive them to hotels and flats.
‘Some of them were quite open about who they were,’ he said, adding: ‘They had no fear at all of being caught.’
He said: ‘They were very powerful people and they controlled my life for the next nine years.
‘They created fear that penetrated every part of me, day in day out. You did as they asked without question and the punishments were very severe.’
Former Prime Minister Ted Heath and Home Secretary Leon Brittan were among those accused of wrongdoing by Nick, along with Harvey Proctor and former chief of defence staff Lord Bramall.
His account is believed to be a key part of Operation Midland, which is investigating the Dolphin Square VIP abuse claims.
The Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation has said it ‘wholeheartedly’ believed he has been wrongly accused and that his name will be cleared.
The claims against Lord Brittan were also denied following his death last year.
D-Day veteran Lord Bramall, who commanded UK land forces between 1976 and 1978, was formally questioned at a police station in May this year. He has categorically denied any involvement in child abuse.
Former director of MI6 Sir Peter Hayman, who died in 1992, was also named as one of Nick’s alleged attackers. He was exposed in the 1980s as a member of the Paedophile Information Exchange and was convicted of possessing images of child abuse.
WHO ARE EXARO? WEBSITE BANKROLLED BY INVESTMENT FUND MANAGER WHO FIRST REVEALED NICK’S VIP ABUSE CLAIMS
Exaro are the only journalists with regular access to ‘Nick’ and have even been allowed to sit in on police interviews with the child abuse victim.
The website – whose motto is ‘holding power to account’ – was set up in October 2011 with the help of money from rich investors like millionaire investment fund manager Jerome Booth.
‘Nick’ has only given two major interviews since he became the Met’s key witness, and is believed to only speak to Exaro.
Its small staff is led by editor-in-chief Mark Watts, pictured, who remains in close contact with Nick.
Mr Watts is a Freedom of Information campaigner, journalist and author.
He started in regional papers before moving to the Sunday Express and then to Andrew Neil’s Sunday Business. He won damages in 2002 for unfair dismissal after being fired for writing two emails opposing the decision to shut down its investigative unit.
Then then started his own newspaper reveiw show in the Iranian-bankrolled Press TV, which still employs George Galloway and allowed Ken Livingstone to have a show.
In 2012 it has its UK broadcasting licence revoked by Ofcom because of interference from Tehran Mr Watts said previously he had full editorial control of his show.
Among Exaro’s reporters is the former Guardian political journalist David Hencke.
Most of its biggest stories have come from investigating the Westminster VIP paedophile scandal, especially abuse at Dolphin Square.
Although they did also manage to reveal a secret film of Rupert Murdoch criticising the ‘incompetent cops’ who handled the phone-hacking investigation.
They have also helped abuse tax avoidance in Whitehall and bribery in defence contracts.
BREAKING NEWS: Harvey Proctor is CLEARED of triple murder and child abuse claims as £3m Operation Midland finally ends
- Former Tory MP has always denied being part of VIP paedophile ring
- Allegations were made by suspected serial fantasist known as ‘Nick’
- He was told today that police were taking no further action against him
- Ex-politician calls for public inquiry into Operation Midland, the probe sparked by the claims
Former Tory MP Harvey Proctor (pictured) was today formally cleared of child abuse and murder allegations as Scotland Yard’s £3million Operation Midland finally came to an end
Former Tory MP Harvey Proctor was today formally cleared of child abuse and murder allegations as Scotland Yard’s £3million Operation Midland finally came to an end.
For more than a year, Mr Proctor, 69, has strenuously denied historic allegations that he was part of a VIP paedophile ring that murdered three boys.
Mr Proctor is understood to be the last living person under investigation over the allegations of serial murder and abuse which were made against him and other high-profile figures by a solitary witness, and suspected serial fantasist known as ‘Nick’.
Today, the former member for Basildon and Billericay was told that police would be taking no further action against him, and called for a public inquiry into Operation Midland, the probe that was sparked by the allegations.
The decision to clear Mr Proctor is a humiliating climbdown for the Met, which had previously described his accuser’s allegations as ‘credible and true’.
‘I have been advised that the Metropolitan Police Service have informed my solicitors that they intend to take no further action with regard to my involvement with Operation Midland,’ he said.
‘I wish to make a short statement. I will make a longer one on the publication of my book “Credible and True. The Political and Personal Memoir of K. Harvey Proctor” on Tuesday, 29th March 2016.
‘I believe Operation Midland should now be the subject of a truly independent public inquiry.
‘I consider that Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, Patricia Gallan, Steve Rodhouse and Kenny McDonald should tender their resignations from the Metropolitan Police Service forthwith.’
He also called for Nick and news website ExaroNews, which has run a series of stories on the investigation, to be prosecuted for allegedly ‘seeking to pervert the course of justice’.
He added: ‘I wish to thank my family and friends, my solicitors Raza Sakhi and Nabeel Gatrad of Sakhi Solicitors, Leicester and commend the free, inquisitive and independent minded media, who have all supported me over the last year.’
The decision to clear Mr Proctor was revealed exclusively by the Mail last month.
At lunchtime today, a senior officer updated Mr Proctor’s solicitor on the bungled 15 month investigation, which has seen the former MP interviewed under caution and his home in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, raided by police.
Mr Proctor, who was twice interviewed under caution as part of Operation Midland, consistently denied any wrongdoing, and said he was the victim of a homosexual witch hunt.
As revealed by the Mail last month, Operation Midland, which has involved 27 officers and cost more than £2million, had uncovered no evidence to substantiate claims that senior politicians and defence chiefs had been part of a murderous paedophile ring.

The decision to clear Mr Proctor (pictured at his shirt shop in 1992) is a humiliating climbdown for the Met, which had previously described his accuser’s allegations as ‘credible and true’
The main witness, who uses the pseudonym Nick, has been discredited as a fantasist and critics have called for him – and anyone who encouraged him to make false allegations – to be prosecuted for perverting the course of justice.
Nick claimed to have witnessed the murder of three boys by a gang including former Prime Minister Edward Heath, the late ex home secretary Leon Brittan and a string of ex-spymasters.

He also alleged he was abused by Britain’s most distinguished living soldier, Field Marshal Lord Bramall, 92, whose home was raided in front of his dying wife before he was interviewed under caution.
In January, 10 months after police ransacked his home, Lord Bramall, a former head of the Army, was told he would face no charges but since then Met chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has repeatedly refused to apologise to him.
Last month, Sir Bernard was snubbed over a new long-term contract as he tried to justify sending 22 officers to raid Lord Bramall’s home at breakfast time.
The Met chief had originally hoped to receive a three year extension to his current five year deal, but amid the continuing furore over Operation Midland, Theresa May announced he would only get a further 12 months in the job.
The Home Secretary’s decision weakened Sir Bernard’s authority at the Met and led one of his arch critics to brand him a ‘lame-duck’ commissioner who was now effectively on ‘probation’.
Home Office sources believe he will leave later this year. It is believed Mrs May is already giving ‘serious consideration’ to the idea of recruiting his successor from overseas.
The commissioner’s future had been in the balance following the Met’s shambolic child sex investigation into former Armed Forces chief and D-Day veteran Lord Bramall.
In the face of widespread criticism, Sir Bernard launched a fight-back, setting up an ‘independent’ inquiry into his force’s handling of historical sexual allegations against public figures, to be led by retired High Court judge Sir Richard Henriques.
Nick claimed to have witnessed the murder of three boys by a gang including the late ex home secretary Leon Brittan (left) and a string of ex-spymasters. He also alleged he was abused by Britain’s most distinguished living soldier, Field Marshal Lord Bramall, 92, (right) whose home was raided in front of his dying wife
However, the Met chief sparked a secrecy row by saying only the key findings of the report will be made public.
And friends of Lord Bramall and Lord Brittan claimed the move was a ‘blatant’ attempt to kick the row into the long grass.
Lord Brittan’s widow is said to be deeply unhappy about how the Met has handled Nick’s allegations against her late husband, and separate false rape claims made against him by a suspected fantasist known as Jane. The claims made by Nick relate to the period between 1975 and 1984, when he was aged between seven and 16.

Earlier today, Mr Proctor said deputy Labour leader Tom Watson, fellow Labour MP John Mann and London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith ‘should hang their heads in shame’, for making ‘self-serving’ comments on claims that a VIP child sex ring ran out of Westminster.
Mr Proctor accused the Met and other police forces of being ‘the leakiest of bodies’ after details of their investigation, including a search of his home, appeared in the media.
The resulting coverage ‘engulfed me and destroyed my life’, he wrote, as he issued a plea to Parliament to ‘redress the imbalance in the law in favour of people alleging sexual abuse’.
Mr Proctor previously revealed he faced allegations of murder, rape and abuse of young boys as part of of a group of men who abused children in the 1970s and 1980s.
In the letter he criticised some of today’s politicians who, he said, have ‘courted press attention and constituency idolatry’ by publicly commenting on the claims.
He wrote: ‘The likes of Tom Watson, John Mann (who described me on the day of my house search as ‘the first of many’) and Zac Goldsmith should hang their heads in shame – I doubt they will do so as by their words they have shown themselves to be the antithesis of their sobriquet in parliamentary terms, ‘honourable’ men.
‘I only hope in their lives they never face the turmoil that their varying degrees of encouragement to fantasists and the police has caused me this past year.’
Scotland Yard is yet to comment on the future of Operation Midland.
‘Operation Midland, and its ineptitude, should be investigated by Parliament and the lessons learnt applied to all cases,’ Mr Proctor wrote, adding: ‘The Met, and other police constabularies, are the ‘leakiest’ of bodies.
‘Currently to pass on such information to the press or third parties is a disciplinary offence; it should be a criminal one.’
He also attacked the police for stating publicly that they thought Nick’s claims were ‘credible and true’ as he called for Parliament to investigate the probe.
However he also called on MPs to support Mr Hogan-Howe to ‘to stand up to the bullying of the child abuse fantasists on the internet’, as well as make internet companies such as Google liable to defamation laws.
