UK Government Office Knew About Mass Rape Gangs Decade Before Investigating, by Victoria Friedman.
Britain’s Home Office had received information about Pakistani grooming gangs raping vulnerable white girls more than a decade before it finally commissioned an investigation, a review has found.
A review had found that documents relating to an unpublished report which detailed “men who are believed to be responsible for pimping and grooming young people into prostitution” in Rotherham, north east England, was sent to the Home Office in 2002, but the department failed to act on it.
The revelations were reported in the Home Office’s internal review entitled: “The Rotherham Independent Review: a review into information passed to the Home Office in connection with allegations of Child Sexual Abuse in Rotherham” released Tuesday and which considered whether the Home Office properly handed material sent to it regarding Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE). …
The July 2018 investigation into what evidence of grooming gangs was sent to the government was prompted by documents uncovered in the Home Office archives relating to the 2002 study during the Jay review into the sexual exploitation of some 1,500 white girls by Pakistani-heritage Muslim men in Rotherham between 1997 and 2003. The Jay Report, published 2014, was only prompted after an investigation into the sexual abuse by The Times newspaper.
Some of the information the researcher said she sent to the Home Office in the draft report was a case study of the mother of a 14-year-old girl being groomed for sex by “[South] Asian” men but whose pleas for help were ignored by police — similar to other cases presented to the Home Office by the Jay Report 12 years later. …
Rotherham Labour MP Sarah Champion said: “It is clear that the Home Office knew about child sexual exploitation in Rotherham from 2002.
“The report also highlights the knowledge of the local authority and South Yorkshire Police of the abuse.
“Why, when so many in authority knew the scale and severity of this crime did it take until 2014, with the publication of the Jay report, for a large scale investigation to occur?
“How many lives could have been protected if swift action had been taken a decade before?”
I’m wearing my shocked face. What a surprise. They knew all along, but didn’t do anything about it because of PC. Does that make them partly culpable? Somewhere between 100,000 to 1 million white girls in Britain have been raped so far, over twenty years and counting, according to credible estimates. The left brought in the rapists, and covers for them.
Name a bigger scandal. Remember, a society that cannot protect it’s young women will die.
