Lucan’s son says he did go to Africa
THE son of fugitive Lord Lucan has confirmed that he WAS sent on a trip to Africa, where it is claimed the missing Earl would watch him from a distance.
George Bingham, the 8th Lord Lucan, said he remembers going to Kenya around 1985, but “to his knowledge” he didn’t meet him in person.
Speaking to The Times about the Kenya trip, George Bingham said: ‘The airline tickets, safari expenses and hotels, as regards myself, were paid for by my family trust.’
But he denies ever consciously meeting his father ( above), saying: “I have not, to the best of my knowledge, seen my father since November 1974.
“To suggest that I have met and spoken with my father...is to make me a possible accessory, after the fact, to a grisly murder ...is to call me a criminal and it is thus a most serious libel.”
Lucan vanished after the murder of his children’s nanny, Sandra Rivett, on November 7, 1974.
Could use his in-depth knowledge of laws of physics to give an advantage. Good negotiator. Cheap salary, especially kit budget.
