United Kingdom police would have interviewed former British prime minister Sir Edward Heath over 10 allegations of rape and indecent assault against seven men and boys, if he had still been alive today.
"None of these seven claims were while he was prime minister but I understand some allegations did happen when he was prime minister", he told Sputnik.
She branded the inquiry "a disgrace" and said one of Heath's key accusers had made "pernicious" claims of satanic ritual abuse and said she was "profoundly disturbed" by uncorroborated witnesses.
"In regard to the allegations concerning Sir Edward Heath, the inquiry will investigate whether there was any knowledge within Westminster institutions, and if so, what actions were taken", a spokesman for the inquiry said.
"In the case of seven individual disclosures, if Sir Edward Heath had been alive today, it has been concluded that he would have been interviewed under caution in order to obtain his account in relation to the allegations made against him".
Police stressed that they could not pass judgment on whether Heath, who died in 2005, was guilty or not, nor whether there would have been a likely prospect of successfully prosecuting him.
Police were given a total of 42 allegations about the ex-PM - and rejected 35 of them because they appeared to be untrue or were a case of mistaken identity.
"Edward Heath was an extremely prominent and influential person, one of the most powerful people in the world". It is important to stress that is not the role of the police to judge the guilt or innocence of people in our criminal justice system.

Claim: Heath allegedly assaulted, over clothing, an adult male during a chance encounter at a public event.
Heath's reputation should not be left in limbo, his former colleagues said. "I don't believe any of the allegations", he said.
In it, he said the decision to undertake the "incredibly complex and challenging investigation" was "not taken lightly", but added he would not be "buckling under pressure not to investigate or to conclude the investigation prematurely".
He said the police had the duty to protect and safeguard children and vulnerable adults.
During the two-year investigation there were allegations of crimes by Sir Edward against 40 people, made either directly by the victim, anonymously or by a third party. "Heath's own evidence would have been essential to a fair process".
