Australian entertainer Rolf Harris faces further sex-abuse charges in Britain
LONDON (AFP) - Veteran Australian entertainer Rolf Harris, who will stand trial in April accused of indecently assaulting two underage girls, will face three further charges of sexual assault, Britain's public prosecutor said on Monday.
"The three counts will be prosecuted in addition to the 13 alleged sexual offences with which Mr Harris was charged on 29 August 2013," said a Crown Prosecution Service spokesman.
"The alleged offences relate to one existing complainant and two new complainants," he added.
The prosecutor said the additional charges are for assault, relating to a girl aged 19 in 1984; indecent assault on a girl aged seven or eight in 1968 or 1969; and indecent assault on a girl aged 14 in 1975.
