A Paedophile is being sued in the High Court Of London.

A Paedophile who still resides in Yeovil Somerset, Global247news understands, is to be sued for damages in the High Court Of London.

The case relates to pupils from Westfield School in 1982 when the abuser was known at large, although evidence seen today shows that he offended for several more years.

The man in question operated a Yeovil building company and is understood to have committed various sexual offences on pupils aged 14-15.

Now it’s understood that the man, now in his early eighties,  is being sued by one of his victims for £220,000 compensation.

Today, Global247news contacted the legal counsel instructed on the case for confirmation.

Lawyer Paul Mohamed told us from Switzerland:

Lawyer Paul Mohamed

‘ I can confirm we are going to the High Court In London regarding a claim against a Yeovil sex predator; whilst the evidence is very damming, my client, at this stage, has no further comment to make.

‘We can confirm proceedings for the hearing are being applied for whilst we follow the High Court protocol.

‘ We currently are not at liberty to name the individuals concerned at this stage – although shortly, it’s likely the offender’s name will be made public as seen on court files, ‘ he finished.

Westfield School were today unavailable for comment.

Although it’s understood the offender at the time had the Headmistress Miss Tong and deputy Mr Bailey wrapped around his little finger whilst he committed his sexual offences.

Global247news will continue to follow the case and name the offender once we have the information.
