Public figures named in files on sex offenders in Britain (25.08.83)

The Globe and Mail (Canada), 25th August 1983

LONDON (Reuter) – Several public figures have been named in a Scotland Yard dossier on child sex offences, a member of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative Party said yesterday.

Geoffrey Dickens, a campaigner against child pornography, said in a radio interview that he had compiled a list of names and planned to disclose them in Parliament.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions confirmed it was studying a report on a police inquiry into a group called Pedophile Information Exchange.

The group’s organizer, Tom O’Carroll, was jailed for two years in 1981 on charges of conspiring to corrupt public morals.

Home Secretary Leon Brittan has ordered a copy of the report by tomorrow, his officials said.

Mr. Dickens said the Scotland Yard report, like his own dossier, contain the names of a number of top people in public life and show business.

The allegations come amid continuing national outrage over an organized abduction and sexual assault on a 6-year-old boy by three men in southern England 10 days ago.
