The trial for Australian entertainer Rolf Harris, facing 12 counts of indecent assault against four victims spanning three decades between 1968 and 1986, opened Friday in London’s Southwark Crown Court. Harris, now 84, has lived in the UK for years, but has strong local connections. He entertained at a number of Vancouver venues during the 1960s and ’70s, hosted The Rolf Harris Show on BCTV in 1978 and was on stage at Expo 86.
Some of the charges against him were outlined in court as the prosecution opened its case. The UK newspaper The Independent gives some detail at the following link.
