Former BC Premier accused

The Daily Telegraph is reporting police in England are investigating a sexual assault complaint made against former B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell.

The London-based newspaper says the alleged groping of a female embassy worker occurred in 2013 when Campbell was serving as Canadian High Commissioner to Britain, a role he served from 2011 to 2016.

A representative for Campbell told the Telegraph the former Premier denies the allegation, and the “complaint was transparently disclosed and became the subject of a full due diligence investigation at the time by the government of Canada and was found to be without merit.”

The alleged victim, a 54-year-old Dutch-Canadian mother of three named Judith Prins, went on-the-record with the Telegraph about the alleged encounter, claiming she felt “completely violated” by the incident.

She said she made a formal complaint in 2014, which was resolved by terms she’s barred from discussing.

Prins filed a complaint with London police last month, spurred on by the MeToo movement.
