Freddie Starr arrested for fourth time in UK sex abuse probe

Starr’s lawyer said today that he plans to file a High Court application for judicial review over the conduct of the police and the Crown Prosecution Service.

FREDDIE STARR HAS been arrested for a fourth time in England as part of an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against Jimmy Savile.

Starr was previously arrested twice in November 2012 on suspicion of sexual offences. He was arrested again on 14 January this year after attending a police station in Warwickshire by prior appointment.

In a statement, Metropolitan Police did not name Starr but said: “The arrest relates to further allegations made to Operation Yewtree, which falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed ‘others’. We are not prepared to discuss further.”

Today he was bailed pending further enquiries in relation to all matters until April.

The comedian has always denied any allegations of abuse. His lawyer said today he will now file a High Court application for judicial review over the conduct of the police and the Crown Prosecution Service because he had been told a charge or release decision would be made by today, BBC reports.
