Savile suspect: 'Inquiry has gone too far'
"A former BBC producer who was released without charge yesterday after being arrested by detectives investigating the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal has said the police operation has "gone too far".
Wilfred De'Ath, who has always denied any wrongdoing, was arrested last year in Cambridgeshire over an allegation of indecent assault on a girl in the 60s. But the complainant has since withdrawn her statement, said Alison Saunders, chief crown prosecutor for CPS London.
He told the Today programme's John Humphrys that he believed the police were over-compensating now because they failed to get Savile at the time and said that the investigation, codenamed Operation Yewtree, was "getting silly"."

Wilfred De’Ath – One Hypocritical Old Goat
"So the first of the Yewtree branches has crashed to the ground, a sound virtually unheard in the forest of bad news today.
The ‘famous actress’ (I had to look her up such a household name was she…) (we are not allowed to mention her name – her publicist must be devastated) who alleged that Wilfred De’Ath (I definitely had to look him up) might have fondled her when she might have been a teenager in it might have been a cinema, has decided to withdraw her allegation. She still maintains it is true, but feels that she will be lonely in court, since no one else has come forward with similar allegations about the same man. She only came forward to Yewtree, she says, in the hope that it might give others the courage to come forward.
She is of course, an employee of ITV, the company which paid Mark Williams-Thomas to make the ‘Exposure’ programme, on which Wilfred De’Ath was such a willing witness against the ‘disgusting behaviour’ of Jimmy Savile."

YEW-TURN – SUDDEN DE’ATH
"Scotland Yard attempted to dump news of the their case against Wilfred De’Ath being dropped due to the sole complainant withdrawing her statement very quietly. Unfortunately, amongst the bigger news of widespread legalised theft in Cyprus and ‘Teflon Boris’ vs Eddie Mair it was noticed by a few pesky truth-seekers. And, my, what a tangled little web of intrigue it is.
For a deeper analysis of Wilfred De’Aths contribution to Mark Williams-Thomas’ shallow character assassination of the late Sir Jimmy Savile I will guide readers to this EXPOSITION."

Eleven men are arrested by Savile inquiry detectives... but just THREE will be charged in £1million operation criticised by some as 'a celebrity witch-hunt'

Australian arrested: the mainstream media is right not to name him for now
"Their principle source of corroboration appears to be Mark Williams-Thomas, a former UK detective specialising in major sex crimes, who has since become a media personality and television criminology expert [sic].
So what exactly has Williams-Thomas said in relation to this latest arrest?
According to his Twitter account (Williams-Thomas is a prodigious tweeter) absolutely nothing.
He did tweet this in November last year:
Breaking : XX XX currently being interviewed under caution at police station as part of #Savile other #sexual offences
This tweet – four months old – appears to be the primary source of corroboration used by bloggers for naming the suspect charged by last week, after the Metropolitan Police tweeted this ..."
"In another case, just over a week ago, former BBC producer Wilfred De’ath arrested by police last November was freed without charge after claims he molested a 14 year old woman were withdrawn. "
