Harvey Proctor’s press conference was nothing but a one-sided stunt
It’s all very well for the disgraced former MP Harvey Proctor to have cried and claimed that his life had been ruined at a press conference yesterday but one fact remains: The police asked him for a voluntary DNA sample and he refused.
Proctor – a man convicted of gross indecency for taking part in spanking and cane beating male prostitutes aged between 17 and 21 in 1987 – may be entirely innocent of assault and murder but in attempting to manipulate the press and public in advance of any criminal charges, he is entirely wrong.
No representative of the complainant or police was present yesterday and this one-sided stunt was nothing but that. Harvey Proctor should be ashamed of himself.
