The man known as Nick, whose allegations sparked the VIP sex abuse scandal, was last night charged with inventing the claims and then fraudulently claiming £22,000 in compensation claims.
The 50-year-old – whose true identity can still not be revealed for legal reasons – will appear in court in September, after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) charged him with 12 counts of perverting the course of justice and one count of fraud.
Prosecutors also allege that Nick created a fake witness called ‘Fred’ and sent police emails from a false account in an attempt to corroborate his claims.
But of course we must always believe accusers, no?
I think the correct construction is “always consider seriously accusations”
