Read those few words again 'arresting Savile was unlikely to be justifiable ...... with the knowledge that there was unlikely to be a prosecution' !
I have no idea what would have happened had Sir Jimmy refused to be interviewed but I am glad that he didn't for obvious reasons.
Now, have a look at this extract from the Telegraph on 13th January 2013 - two days after Det S Jon Savell's Report into Operation Ornament was published :
Another report contained a partial transcript of Savile’s interview under caution which showed he even tried to bully the two female detectives who were interviewing him.
I strongly suggest that you read this article - perhap's you might find yourself asking this question : Just HOW did this newspaper get access to this information 9 months before it was released as a result of a Freedom of Information Request ?
Whoever leaked this information to the press, mistakenly presented it as two reports. There was not 'another report' there were however, two tapes used to record the interview ! It is on the second tape that Jimmy explains his 'policy' for dealing with threatening correspondence. Let's not have any ambiguity or room for misunderstanding. Let's read what Jimmy says himself shall we ?
Was that the bit where Jimmy bullied those two officers ? Shame, whoever passed this on forgot to add that next bit "Yeah, only a bit of fun"
