Police to take no action against Harry Kasir as they continue to probe Elm Guest House
Police have released without charge the former co-manager of a guest house at the centre of an investigation into a VIP paedophile ring.
It comes after Exaro disclosed on Monday that the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is to drop key charges against two other men who were arrested under ‘Operation Fernbridge’.
Detectives arrested Haroon Kasir, known as Harry, in July at an address in west London on suspicion of possession of indecent images of children.
Kasir ran Elm Guest House with his late wife, Carole, for about four years from 1979 in Barnes. Carole died suddenly in 1990, with a coroner recording a verdict of suicide by insulin injection.
He was the third man to be arrested by the Metropolitan Police Service’s paedophile unit under Operation Fernbridge. He was released on police bail at the time.
The Met never publicly named Kasir as having been arrested, and only referred to him as “Fernbridge 3”.
It confirmed to Exaro that no charges are to be brought against “Fernbridge 3”, and that he is no longer on police bail. A spokesman said: “He has been released, with no further action. He is not still under arrest.”
