Rolf Harris Arrested Again Over Allegations Of Sexual Abuse

Written by Sarah Bella on August 6, 2013

Aussie entertainment icon Rolf Harris has been re-arrested in the UK, with the 83-year-old once again being questioned over allegations of sexual offenses stemming from Operation Yewtree, a police investigation into late British media personality Jimmy Savile.

ABC News reports that no charges have been laid against Harris in this latest arrest, with the musician being re-bailed until August.

Harris was initially interviewed under caution in November of 2012 under suspicion of sexual offences, before being arrested and subsequently bailed in March this year. Operation Yewtree initially looked into allegations of sexual abuse by Savile, predominantly against children, but has since extended to living people, including Harris.

The performer, who is perhaps best known for his 1957 hit Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport and his invention of the percussion instrument the wobble board, has continued to perform since the allegations first came to light, thanking audiences for their support.
