Girl, 13, dropped Rotherham rape complaint after police lost her clothes – court

h/t

A 13-year-old girl withdrew allegations of being repeatedly raped and physically attacked after police in Rotherham lost clothes that could have provided DNA evidence, a court heard.

The now-adult woman said South Yorkshire Police officers in 2003 had offered her ‘no protection’ after she told them she had been sexually assaulted on several occasions by Sageer Hussain.

…The woman, giving evidence behind a screen, was asked by Kitty Taylor, representing Hussain, why she had withdrawn allegations she had made in April 2003 around a week after speaking to police. She said: “I withdrew it because they wouldn’t give me any protection and told me they had already lost my clothes, there was no DNA, it was my word against his. That is why I withdrew.”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan calls for a complete amnesty for any illegal immigrants who lived in Grenfell Tower

At least 79 people died after the 24-storey tower in West London caught fire last week.

One of the reasons for the authorities inability to get an accurate death toll is because some of the victims are too frightened to come forward and get help.

LBC’s Senior Reporter Vincent McAviney explains: “Some of the residents are undocumented migrants or are people who were living in the tower illegally – and they’re worried that is their status is looked into, they’ll be prosecuted.

“The probelm (sic) with this is that without working out exactly who was inside, an acurate (sic) death toll can’t be known and secondly, the people that did survive can’t be rehoused or helped in any way.”

(One resident said) “Unless everyone is completely sure that this will not get you into trouble with your immigration status, it’s not going to get you into trouble with your landlord, it’s not going to get you into trouble with your benefits, people aren’t going to come forward.”

From the comments: “if you let the illegal people to be rehoused you will see a load of flats & houses being set on fire.”

I do, I do and I do! Colombia’s first THREE-man marriage between a ‘polyamorous family’ is legally recognised

Three gay men say they have gained legal recognition as the first ‘polyamorous family’ in Colombia, where same-sex marriages were legalized last year.

Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, have signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights.

‘We wanted to validate our household… and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,’ said one of the men, Prada, in a video published by Colombian media on Monday.
