CPS: Max Clifford verdicts are 'long-denied justice'

The deputy head of the Crown Prosecution Service has said that the guilty verdicts found against Max Clifford represent "long-denied justice" for victims of serious sexual offences.

Today’s verdicts provide a long-denied justice to the victims of serious sexual offences. I would like to thank these victims for having had the courage to come forward and give evidence.

The victims of sexual abuse, whenever it may have taken place, should know that police and prosecutors will listen.

It is only right that we now take some time to consider our position on the hung count and we will update the court accordingly.

– Jenny Hopkins, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS London.
