Following a BBC Radio 4 investigation, a retired teacher accused of being a serial paedophile at some of Scotland’s most exclusive schools is facing dozens of abuse allegations in South Africa, where he moved after he was forced to resign.
David Price, 82, will face trial in South Africa, where he taught after leaving England in the 1980s.
Price admitted fondling pupils at Edinburgh Academy and Fettes College in the 1970s.
The former schoolmaster referred to as Edgar in an order made at the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry lives in a retirement complex in Cape Town.
A former pupil in South Africa informed the police in December after learning of the earlier allegations in Radio 4’s In Dark Corners series.
Journalist Alex Renton, who was taught by Price, has spoken to six men who allege they were sexually assaulted by the teacher at Ashdown House in East Sussex in the 1970s. There are 42 allegations against him in total.
After returning to his native South Africa, Price continued to teach. He was arrested in the country by British police in 2019 and has since been fighting extradition to the UK. The latest allegations relate to his time at a prestigious all-boys school in Cape Town in the 1980s.
