The main allegations against Ted Heath

Former Tory MP who worked for Edward Heath This just doesn't fit

Wiltshire Police have revealed the findings of Operation Conifer - an enormous investigation by five police forces into sexual abuse claims against former Tory PM Sir Edward Heath.

"All those who knew Sir Edward Heath or worked with him are, without exception, convinced that the allegations of child abuse will all be found to be groundless", they said. Many other charges were dismissed in the report.

Wiltshire Police Chief Constable Mike Veale has strongly defended the multi-million pound case and said: This has been a unique investigation with unprecedented challenges but one we, as the police service, had an obligation to progress in a proportionate and fully accountable manner.

The report does not address the question of Sir Edward's guilt or innocence because the remit of the two-year £1.5million inquiry was to see whether there was enough evidence to interview the former MP for Bexley, who died at home in Salisbury in July 2005, aged 89.

These alleged attacks all took place while Sir Edward was a member of parliament, but none related to the time he was prime minister.

Heath negotiated the U.K.'s entry to the European Economic Community before he was supplanted by Margaret Thatcher as party leader in 1975.

The industry outsider on Tuesday afternoon will lay out for investors his strategic plan for the 114-year-old automaker. Hackett's plan also entails moving production of the Ford Focus from North America to China to save on costs.

"Furthermore, in line with recognised best practice, Wiltshire Police recently commissioned Operation Hydrant to undertake an independent review of the investigation to ensure its ongoing proportionality and justification". One offence in 1964 against a boy aged 15 is alleged to have happened while Heath was secretary of state for trade and industry.

One of the people was cautioned by officers while another is now being investigated.

"Sir Edward Heath's reputation should not be left in limbo".

The investigation into Heath over claims of child sexual abuse started in August 2015.

"There is a great deal of credible evidence that he did have a predilection for abusing children, particularly boys, and that is all we can say", he told Sputnik.

But in May previous year, the probe found no evidence to support the corruption claims involving madam Myra Ling-Ling Forde, who herself said she had no knowledge of misconduct. The alleged offences are said to have occurred when he was a serving MP.

More than half a million Rohingya Muslims fled their nation's army as it advanced, crossing into neighboring Bangladesh. This would be done according to criteria agreed in 1993, when tens of thousands of Rohingya were repatriated, she said.

In 2007 Brian Coleman, a senior Tory on the London Assembly, caused a stir when he claimed it was common knowledge in Conservative circles that Sir Edward had been warned by police in the 1950s over his "cottaging activities".

'I believe this was the right moral, ethical and professional thing to do, but I appreciate that every case needs to be judged on its own merits.

AN INDEPENDENT scrutiny panel has today "commended" Wiltshire Police for their involvement in Operation Conifer.

Ken MacDonald, the former director of public prosecutions, criticised the force for holding a press conference outside Heath's home and appealing for witnesses to come forward - which he said was likely to encourage "fantasists" to come forward.

The police do not and can not make a conclusion that Sir Edward is guilty or innocent, Mr. Watts explained, but if they had have been able to interview him, then they would decide whether to pass the case on to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

Mr Veale added the inquiry was "politically sensitive" but denied direct pressure on investigators.

There is a sweeping, ongoing inquiry into child sexual abuse in Britain that is aimed at discovering what those in power could have done to prevent abuse in various institutions across the country.
