De’ath was the third of 11 so far arrested. He was not charged because of lack of evidence.

Talking to the UK Sun De’ath said, “The police feel so humiliated by their lamentable failure to get Savile that they have come after all of us. You can tell in their faces how embarrassed they are”.

His statement comes as a household name in Australia was arrested last week and will face court in May.

The operation has so far rounded up pop star Gary Glitter and comedians Freddie Starr and Jim Davidson as well as BBC DJ Dave Lee Travis.

“It’s come too late and police are arresting the wrong people,” De’ath says.
The 75-year old former producer also told The Sun “Everyone at the BBC was at it — everyone. It would be quicker to tell you who wasn’t”.

The Perth born Berkshire based Australian entertainer is said to have gone into hiding since his arrest. He cannot be named for legal reasons.
