Napier is a former treasurer of the infamous Paedophile Information Exchange.
The group campaigned on behalf of paedophiles in the 1970s and 1980s.
He was jailed for 13 years in 2014 for carrying out hundreds of sex assaults against boys.
He plied victims with alcohol and gave them cigarettes and would taunt those who did not comply with his sick requests.

Napier told police he was “out of control” and regretted what he had done.
He waged a campaign of abuse at a school in the 1960s and 1970s — preying on one boy more than 100 times, Southwark crown court heard.
Napier — whose half-brother is Tory MP John Whittingdale — now lives in a quiet town in the south of England.
Asked if he would like to apologise, Napier told The Sun: “I’ve said sorry to my victims.
