British deputy speaker re-arrested over sex claims
LONDON (AFP) - A deputy speaker in Britain's lower house of Parliament was re-arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of indecent assault and sexually touching two further alleged victims, police said.
Nigel Evans, 55, a lawmaker in Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative Party, was initially arrested in May on suspicion of rape and sexual assault said to have happened between 2009 and March this year.
He was re-arrested in June over a further three counts of indecent assault, some dating back to 2002.
The allegations involve men in their twenties.
