Another victim has come forward claiming that she was abused by Jimmy Savile during his alleged 5 decade span of abusing children, and that it happened when she was an eight year old hospital patient at the time, the Sun newspaper reports.
If this allegation is true, this makes this woman, who claims she was abused in 1986, Savile’s youngest victim so far.
Jimmy Savile, the late BBC presenter, is currently at the centre of one of the biggest showbiz scandals this country has ever seen; with in excess of 400 people claiming to have been sexually abused by the Jim’ll Fix It star when they were children. So far Scotland Yard have intervened and taken over the case against him, which has now stretched to include other well-known celebrity’s including Freddie Starr and Gary Glitter, who was previously convicted for child pornography charges.
Also, in the spotlight are bosses at the BBC, after victims and witnesses claimed during a recent ITV Exposure programme that the corporation turned a blind eye to Savile’s behaviour, failing to bring any justice to him whilst under their employment and for not protecting the young people who have claimed to have been abused by Savile, and in some cases on the BBC’s property.
Current figures of those under police investigation are now thought to include up to 29 BBC staff members who are all facing claims of sexual misconduct, which is 20 more than BBC chief, George Entwhistle, divulged at his recent parliamentary appointment.
With the case against the former Radio One DJ, who passed away last year, increasing daily, this most recent allegation could mean that his victims were as young as 8 years old.
The woman has claimed that Savile molested her whilst she was a patient in Stoke Mandeville Hospital while she recovered from surgery, and is now suing Savile’s multi-million pound estate and the hospital for damages over the alleged 1986 attack.
Solicitor Liz Dux said: “This was a little girl who went in for treatment and came out an abuse victim. She should have been protected.”
Savile was a volunteer porter a the Stoke Mandeville hospital, as well as several other similar institutes, who gave him free reign of the establishments due to his seemingly selfless charity work.
