‘Child sex victims’ to sue former Labour MP Lord Janner for £2.5million

The Sun


LORD Janner is being sued for £2.5million by six men who claim he abused them years ago.

Details of the High Court civil action are to be served on the 87-year-old ex-Labour MP next week.

The compensation claim emerged as Justice Lowell Goddard separately confirmed her £18million VIP child abuse inquiry will target politicians, celebrities and the church.

Lord Janner’s legal team this week demanded details of the allegations in the six men’s case against him, insisting it was an “injustice” that they had not yet been told what they were.

It will be decided next month if the ex-QC, who was an MP for 27 years, can stand trial in the New Year over 22 charges of sex abuse, which he denies.
