A Tory MP has been arrested on suspicion of rape

A Conservative The MP was arrested on suspicion of rape and sexual crimes for seven years.

Scotland Yard an unnamed 50-year-old man, who remained in custody on Tuesday, was also detained on suspicion of indecent assault, breach of trust and failure to perform official duties.

Tory chief whip Chris Heaton-Harris urged the deputy to stay away parliament but did not stop the whip, that is, the suspect remains a member of the parliamentary party.

The Metropolitan Police In January 2020, officers received a report of alleged sexual crimes committed in London between 2002 and 2009.

It is clear that the Conservatives will not decide whether to whip the suspect until the police investigation is completed.

The Prospekt trade union, which represents hundreds of staff members of parliament’s chambers, said tougher action was needed.


What will it take for parliament to finally take its responsibilities to its staff and visitors seriously and suspend access to the mansion for parliamentarians under investigation for sexual offenses?

Deputy Secretary-General Gary Graham said: “What will it take for Parliament to finally take seriously its accountability to its staff and visitors and suspend access to the estate for parliamentarians under investigation for sexual offenses?

“Voluntary agreements to stay on do not work, as demonstrated by the presence of Imran Ahmad Khan in Westminster while the investigation was ongoing, despite the agreement to stay on.

“Parliament has the same responsibilities towards its staff as any other place of work, and it must fulfill them.”

The arrest comes amid a re-investigation of the scoundrel in Westminster after a series of cases.

Former Conservative MP Imran Ahmad Khan left the House of Commons earlier this month after being convicted of sexual assault on a boy.

David Warberton recalled the Conservatives ’whip after allegations of sexual harassment and cocaine use emerged.

It is expected that over the past year, about 15 MPs have been investigated by the Parliamentary Independent Complaints and Complaints System (ICGS), which deals with allegations of harassment, harassment or sexual behavior.

Earlier this month, Neil Parish resigned as a Conservative MP from Tiverton and Honitan after admitting to watching pornography in the House of Commons.

The latest arrest also came after a Conservative MP was arrested on suspicion of rape in 2020. He was never found, and police did not take further action after the investigation.

After the Sun first reported the latest arrest, a Scotland Yard statement said: “In January 2020, the Met received a report of alleged sexual crimes committed between 2002 and 2009.

“It is believed that the offenses took place in London.

“The investigation, headed by the staff of the Central Criminal Specialist, continues.

“A 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of indecent assault, sexual harassment, rape, abuse of trust and official duties.

“He remains in custody.”

Conservative sources declined to identify the person, citing the need to protect the identity of any applicant.

A statement from the Tory Bureau of Bureau said:

“Until the investigation is completed, we will not comment further.”
