Harvey Proctor accuses Met of leaking his name to media Westminster child

“And how did Mark Conrad know about this? Because Nick had been told by DC Chatfield on the day of the search. Where was he on the day of the search? He was in my house.”DC Chatfield, unknown to me, was the liaison officer for Nick. Outrageous.”Mr Proctor, who spent more than a year under suspicion of child abuse, torture and murder, also accused of Metropolitan Police of a catalogue of “absurdities” during the £2 million Operation Midland investigation.Discussing how he was not interviewed until June 2015, despite having his home searched three months earlier, he said: “If they genuinely thought that I had murdered anyone, why would they have waited three and a half months to interview me.”They’re allowing a murderer to roam the streets of Leicestershire for three and a half months? An absurdity, but just another absurdity in the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Midland.”He added: “I had every right to be indignant.”Mr Proctor was being cross examined by Collingwood Thompson QC, the barrister for Mr Beech.Previously Mr Proctor described his “Kafkaesque nightmare” after he was accused raping and murdering children as part of a Satanic sex cult and VIP Westminster paedophile ring.Mr Beech denies 12 counts of perverting the course of justice and one count of fraud. The trial continues. Harvey Proctor, the former Tory MP, has launched a blistering attack on the Metropolitan Police accusing them of leaking his name to the media after he was falsely accused of child sexual abuse and murder.Mr Proctor said Scotland Yard officers were guilty of “bad faith” after assuring him that his name would not be made public when his home in the grounds of Belvoir Castle was searched as part of the Operation Midland investigation.But he said while the police were still at his home he received a phone call  and an email from a reporter asking what was going on.He said it was “outrageous” that one of the officers involved in the search was the support officer for Carl Beech, otherwise known as Nick – the person who had made the complaints.Mr Proctor, who was visibly angry in the witness box, said: “On the evening of the search I was told by the police I would not be identified to the media.”I did not know that one and a half hours later, Mark Conrad from Exaro, strange internet news agency and the support team for Nick, had emailed and telephoned my office to ask whether the police were searching my home.
