|Lord Janner - no charges for VIP accused of child sex abuse by 25 people|
It comes after the decision to not prosecute the ex-Labour MP due to his poor health was branded “a disgrace” by one alleged victim, who claimed Janner was “being protected” due to his VIP status.
Leicestershire Police had already traced 25 potential victims during a two-year probe codenamed Operation Enamel.
A force spokesman said: “A number of alleged victims have come forward to the Operation Enamel team following the announcement last week.”
The Mirror can also reveal Lord Janner was officially registered as a “working peer, writer and lecturer” less than a week before he was told he would not be charged.
The Labour grandee gave the description under the heading “occupation” with Companies House, where he was listed as a director until April 10.
Six days later Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions, announced there was enough evidence to bring charges against him but this would not happen, because he was too sick to stand trial.
His family have said he is “entirely innocent”.
Lord Janner quit West Heath Road Seasons Ltd this month after 16 years as a director.
Records show he claimed £2,500 for 15 House of Lords appearances in the month before a search of his home.
In total, he attended on 138 days in 2013, but has not returned since December 18, 2013, a day after police completed a two-day search of his home.
He was diagnosed with dementia in 2009, and his condition is thought to have deteriorated since he became a suspect.
He is said to require round-the-clock care. It sounds like he needed round-the-clock care most of his life.

Campaigners have demanded full details of Lord Janner’s recent contact with House of Lords officials, which they claim may shed new light on his mental state.
It has been reported he wrote to Lords clerks earlier this month indicating he did not wish to step down as a serving peer.
John Mann, the Labour candidate contesting Bassetlaw, Notts said: “I don’t see how you can sign a document relating to membership of the House of Lords if you have dementia.”
One of nine victims Janner could have been charged over said Ms Saunders’ decision was “a disgrace”, and added: “This man is still being protected because [of his status] and isn’t able to stand trial.
“If he was an everyday person with a normal life and job, justice would [have] been served, but as it stands we victims are just being pushed to the ground again and walked over.”
It's called victim abuse. Protecting the pervert is abusing the victim again. It should not be allowed to happen under any circumstance. There is precedent for trying someone with dementia in absentia, and this should be considered.
