The star of the BBC presenter had committed hundreds of abuse

LONDON. - The late former presenter of the BBC Jimmy Savile commit at least 214 sexual abuse over a period of over 50 years, including to children under ten years and in institutions such as children's hospitals, said yesterday the British police.

According to research, of the 214 confirmed victims, 174 were women and 40 men, 73% under 18 years and, among these, at least 28 children under ten years, including some eight.

The first report contains the most recent 1955 and 2009, but most date from between 1966 and 1977, when the driver had between 40 and 50 years.

Was never prosecuted

Despite the allegations made in 28 different police stations in the UK, among which there are 34 in violation, the driver was never even processed.

Savile died in October 2011 after being one of the most visible faces of British television in the decades of the `70s and` 80s.

Complaints against the presenter, who among other honors was named Knight of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, has long existed, but became relevant and caused great shock in October 2012, when the channel ITV1 aired a documentary in which several women reported abuse.

Three months into the investigation, the Metropolitan Police and the institution that protects children, the NSPCC, released a report called "Giving voice to victims" with some partial results.

According to this work, Savile used his fame and participation in charity events to deceive various institutions and access to vulnerable children.

"It is clear that he was hiding in plain sight, using his celebrity status and activity in solidarity fundraising for uncontrolled access to vulnerable people," the 30-page report.

In that sense, since there are 13 hospitals confirmed as crime scenes, including Great Ormond Street, the first health care center for children of England, located in London.

There are also 14 reports of abuse in schools and 23 in the BBC's facilities, especially between 1965 and 2006, when he led TV hits as the music program Top of the Pops.

The British broadcaster yesterday issued a statement in which he said he was "horrified" by the incident and called for a "sincere apology to the victims."
