The diplomat Peter Hayman sexually abused young boys at an apartment complex near Parliament, an alleged victim has claimed. Hayman, who died in 1992, was investigated by police in 1978 for possessing inappropriate literature, but was not prosecuted.
He has been named as one of a number of paedophiles by a man, now in his forties, who claims to have been abused over a period of three years at Dolphin Square.
The information has been passed to Scotland Yard to consider as part of its investigation into historic allegations of sexual abuse at Westminster.
'He used to like to kiss and to touch, liked me to do that to him.
'But it would always culminate in being raped. That is what happened all the time.
'That was normal,' he said.
Starting in 1979, when he was just 11, Nick claims to have been abused by a number of VIPs in the luxury apartment complex.
'Hayman was rather cold, but then a lot of them were - emotionless.
'He does not feature big for me, as some of the others do. He was not one of the nasty ones,' he added.
At the time he thought Hayman was an MP for all the time he spent mixing with politicians, he said.
Three years earlier, he had been investigated by police after a package of 'obscene literature' was found on a bus and traced back to him.
In 1984, the Oxford-graduate was convicted of gross indecency following an incident in a public lavatory.
Sir Thomas Hetherington, the then director of public prosecutions, did not agree to to Hayman being prosecuted and Nick claims this was part of an attempt to protect a ring of high-placed paedophiles.
The failure of investigators to prosecute Hayman over the package left Nick 'feeling numb'.
'I know times change, and if you were caught today leaving that sort of thing on a bus you would be arrested and charged.
'If he had been arrested, would he have given up the others? I doubt it. Would his arrest have led to the disruption of the group which might have made a difference? It could have done.
'Really, it does not surprise me that they did not do anything because of who else was involved, and it just adds to the growing list of missed opportunities for it to end.
'It was all just a cover-up, whether to protect the group or protect the establishment’s reputation.'
Dolphin Square was last week named as one of the locations where abuse was carried out.
Investigation into what occurred in the complex decades ago forms part of Operation Fairbank, a large scale investigation into allegations of abuse by high-placed public figures.
