A Labour MP has accused the peer Lord Janner of being a serial child abuser who attacked boys inside the Palace of Westminster
Simon Danczuk said police had told him they wanted to bring 22 historical charges against the former MP dating back to the period between 1969 and 1988.
He said officers were furious after being blocked from prosecuting the 86-year-old peer by a controversial ruling that he was too ill to stand trial.
Speaking in a debate about the Crown Prosecution Service this afternoon, Mr Danczuk said: 'I have met with Leicestershire Police and discussed the allegations in detail. Children being violated, raped and tortured - some in the very building in which we now sit.'
The director of public prosecutions, Alison Saunders, announced in April that Lord Janner's dementia made him unfit to be prosecuted, although that decision is under review.
Mr Danczuk told the Commons: 'If Lord Janner really is too ill to face prosecution, then why can't the courts establish this with a fitness to plead process?
'This would clear up doubts that still linger, for example, why he was still visiting parliament on official visits after he was declared unfit to face justice.'
He said a 'trial of the facts' would allow the victims to tell their stories, but that the DPP had said that would not be in the public interest.
'Personally, I fail to see how the knowledge that a peer of the realm is a serial child abuser is not in the public interest.'
Mr Danczuk was repeatedly warned by the chair of the debate against criticising Lord Janner. But he used the privilege of the parliamentary debate to tell MPs the official charges against Lord Janner were:
Lord Janner's family have denied all claims he abused children.
In April 2015, when the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute him - but said there was enough evidence to charge him – Mr Janner's family released a statement insisting he was 'a man of great integrity'.
The statement said: 'He is entirely innocent of any wrongdoing.
'As the Crown Prosecution Service indicated today, this decision does not mean or imply that any of the allegations that have been made are established or that Lord Janner is guilty of any offence.'
Lord Janner was first publicly accused of child abuse in 1991 during evidence heard at the trial of Frank Beck, a former children’s home supervisor found guilty of abusing more than 100 children.
The then Labour MP made a statement in the Commons declaring his innocence.
However, the Crown Prosecution Service has admitted that he should have been prosecuted on three separate occasions - in 1991, 2002 and 2007 - but botched investigations each time meant he escaped a prosecution.
In April this year, after fresh evidence came to light, the Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders finally admitted there was enough evidence to charge the peer with child abuse.
But Ms Saunders ruled there was 'no public interest' in prosecuting him because of his dementia, adding that his illness made him unfit to plead
Lord Janner was diagnosed with dementia in 2009 but went on to host several hundred people at the taxpayer's expense in the Lords over the next three years, official records show.
Lord Janner voted in the House of Lord 210 times between his Alzheimer's diagnosis and the end of 2013, leading some to suggest he could have been prosecuted if authorities had acted sooner.
