UK media name 4 former politicians involved in child abuse controversy

The British media have revealed the names of four former key figures at the Westminster believed to have been at the heart of a controversial child abuse case in the country.

The names include Margaret Thatcher’s former parliamentary secretary Sir Peter Morrison, former home secretary Leon Brittan, former diplomat and MI6 man Sir Peter Hayman and former Tory minister Sir William van Straubenzee. Their names have reportedly appeared on a series of government documents that are yet to be released.

The alleged child abuses, in which the four deceased figures had been involved, occurred at a children’s home in Northern Ireland. The media had earlier reported that a senior lawmaker is also facing allegations of involvement in the sexually abuse of boys for at least a decade. The lawmaker has not been named, but is reported to be from the Labour Party.
