Max Clifford found guilty of eight charges of indecent assault
CELEBRITY publicist Max Clifford has been found guilty of eight charges of sexual assault, including two separate incidents on the Costa del Sol.
Clifford, a regular in Southern Spain, faced 11 counts of indecent assault between 1966 and 1984 in the UK.
After eight days of jury deliberations, he was cleared of two counts and they were unable to reach a verdict in the other. He will be sentenced this Friday.
The 71-year-old was accused of manipulating seven girls and women into performing sex acts over many years.
He sexually abused a teenager he met in Torremolinos while she was on holiday with her parents in 1977.
Another woman claimed to have been molested by Clifford in a jacuzzi in Calahonda when she was a 12-year-old girl
Now 43, she described a ‘tickling game’ that Clifford played with her before the alleged assault.
Clifford is the first person to be convicted under Operation Yewtree, after being arrested in December 2012 as part of the inquiry and charged last April.
Judge Anthony Leonard told the jury of six men and four women last week that he would accept a majority verdict of nine to one if they could not reach a unanimous verdict.
Clifford did a lot of PR work in the Marbella area, including club La Costa and the Polo House restaurant.
He also offered his services to Marbella Town Hall, however it was decided the €10,000 a month he demanded was too high.
The ‘Max Clifford Celebrity Golf Challenge and Butterfly Ball’ is a key event in the Marbella social calendar, hosted annually by Clifford in aid of the Rhys Daniels Trust, of which Clifford in the patron.
The star-studded event takes place at the La Cala Golf Resort in Mijas, near Marbella,

list of names, were are friends or business associates,of one or more of each other.It is of my opinion that one or all are friends with each other, at this point i want to state ,that i am not making any accusations or claims against any of the people named. All that i am saying is they all have a connection to each other however tenuous it is.PEOPLE ARE JUDGED BY THE COMPANY THEY KEEP ,though what company you keep does not mean you agree , condone, OR PARTICIPATE in the actions of the said company.

Growing up, Tarbuck was a schoolmate of John Lennon. He was convicted of stealing from Terry-Thomas, and was given a two-year probation.(1960)
So Terry Thomas came off stage after giving a midnight charity performance at the Liverpool Odeon to discover that his most expensive holder – a flashy little number decorated with 42 diamonds and a gold spiral band, reputedly worth £2,000 (2013 2000 is 20,000) – had disappeared from his dressing room, he was livid.
The Liverpool police soon tracked down two of the diamonds to a local man called Alan Williams.
The other 40, however, were found inside a roll of carpet at the home of a 20-year-old, unemployed comedian called James Joseph Tarbuck.
Jimmy Tarbuck, whose ‘Boom-Boom’ catch phrase would soon become as famous as Terry-Thomas’s ‘I say!’, pleaded guilty
His first television show was It’s Tarbuck 65! on ITV in 1964, and he was the last original host of Sunday Night at the London Palladium, from 1965. He has also hosted numerous quiz shows, including Winner Takes All, Full Swing, andTarby’s Frame Game.
In the 1980s, he hosted similar Sunday night variety shows, Live From Her Majesty’s, Live from the Piccadilly and finallyLive from the Palladium, which were produced by London Weekend Television for ITV. Nicknamed Tarby, he is aConservative Party supporter, and at the height of his celebrity was a prominent supporter of Margaret Thatcher and her policies, once baking her a cake for her 60th birthday in October 1985.
He was appearing on the fourth series of BBC One‘s Strictly Come Dancing in 2006, but he was forced to pull out on medical advice. In 2008, he returned to a variety format on television screens when he co-hosted, alongside Emma Bunton, an edition of ITV1‘s new variety show, For One Night Only. On 25 May 2012 he appeared on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories while on 3 December 2012 he was invited to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Variety Performance.
He lives with his wife, Pauline, in Coombe, Kingston upon Thames, London.
On 26 April 2013, North Yorkshire Police arrested Tarbuck over an alleged sexual assault on a young boy in the 1970s.
the charges were later dropped due to lack of evidence
The man from Del Monte… Nigel Goldman found in disguise in English village

COSTA del Sol fraudster Nigel Goldman is hiding out in a classic English country cottage under the false name ‘Howard del Monte’.
Goldman – aka ‘Del Monte’ – has also returned to the business of buying and selling coins, stamps and antiques, it can be revealed.
Renting on a six month lease in the charming Berkshire village of Kintbury, he and his partner Suzanne Couling are peddling their wares via a joint Ebay account called ‘Bensons Emporium’.
Village post office staff told the Olive Press that he regularly collects parcels addressed to ‘Del Monte’, and also ‘sends many packages’.
Goldman fled Spain last year amid accusations of fraud, leaving behind dozens of victims owed a total of €15 million.
While he refused to answer questions, he seems happy living with Couling, her two daughters and two cats in the modest three-bedroom property.
While the pair are Kintbury’s hottest topic of conversation, they are rarely seen and ‘keep themselves to themselves’. Couling’s family live nearby in Hungerford.
In fact, the secretive man from Del Monte is seemingly only ever seen leaving the house to go to the post office.
When the Olive Press confronted him in his countryside retreat, Goldman refused to come to the door, instead briefly poking his head out of his bedroom window.
“I have nothing to say to you, but I look forward to meeting you again,” he called down.
His hair was disheveled, but he did not have the moustache some have claimed he is now sporting as part of his disguise.
The previous morning, Couling was seen leaving the house at 9am to load up their silver Vauxhall Zafira with boxes and head off, possibly to a car boot sale.
One neighbour explained that the day they moved into the house, a traffic warden arrived and issued the couple with a parking ticket.
“I don’t understand why he hasn’t been arrested, if a traffic warden can find him then surely the police can,” said the neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous.
“Everyone in the village knows he’s Goldman, whatever name he goes under.”
Goldman, who deleted his Facebook account recently, is currently being investigated for failing to return millions of euros to investors in his financial companies.
Various victims told the Olive Press that they are practically destitute after losing their life savings to his schemes, that included bogus investments in Morocco.
The conman, known for his newspaper columns and radio shows, sucked punters into an elaborate ponzi scheme, promising them sizeable returns.
However the addicted gambler was unable to keep his promises and was forced to flee his luxury million euro home, in Marbella, with Couling last October.
He has since visited Morocco and Portugal, but has chosen to lay his hat down in Kintbury, a far cry from the Costa del Sol high-life he clearly loved.
