Our thanks to Kevin for this. The campaign of police assaults against elderly prominent men shows no signs of slowing down. Lord Bramall is 92. From the article:
The Met said it had informed a man in his 90s who was interviewed on 30 April 2015 by officers working on Operation Midland that he would face no further action.
The force added: “Following a thorough investigation officers have concluded there is insufficient evidence to request the Crown Prosecution Service to consider charging the man with any offences.”
Operation Midland is part of a wider umbrella of investigations by Scotland Yard, dubbed Operation Fairbank, into allegations of abuse involving senior politicians and high-profile figures…
Anthony Stansfield, the Police and Crime Commissioner for the Thames Valley, who also served as a platoon commander under Lord Bramall, condemned the police investigation.
“This is a man who has commanded our nuclear deterrent, was in charge of all our armed forces,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
“He would have been surrounded by staff, he would have had a very, very detailed diary of every day. It is utterly inconceivable and the slightest investigation would have shown that.
“Instead they seem to have barged into the house of a 92-year-old. His wife was dying of Alzheimer’s in the house… The victim in this entirely is Field Marshal the Lord Bramall.”
