Sex abuse victims ‘failed’ by criminal payout scheme

Rotherham Politics

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority is to be investigated over concerns it is failing child sex abuse victims, the Victims’ Commissioner has told 5 live Investigates.

Hundreds of people have been refused payouts since 2012, charities claim, many because they are deemed to have consented to abuse.

Barnardo’s and Victim Support said it was “devastating” vulnerable people.

The government said all victims should get the compensation they deserve.

The Ministry of Justice estimates around 30 cases a year have been refused compensation on consent grounds.

Figures from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), seen by the BBC, also show 180 child sex abuse victims have been refused compensation since 2015 because they lived with a family member who abused them.

“Bunking off is not the crime” Letter from Roger Moody, Islington Gazette, 23 May 1991 p.8

In March 1991 Roger Moody, pro-paedophile rights campaigner and paedophile political activist, wrote to the Islington Gazette (address given as Liverpool Road, N1), identifying himself “as a youth worker who until recently worked in a school-based youth project”.

Was Roger Moody employed in Islington as a youth worker based within a school? Which school was he working within? Was Islington Council his employer?

Within 18 months of Moody losing his job, the Evening Standard exposed the extent to which Islington’s children’s homes had been infiltrated by paedophiles, pornographers and pimps.

More on Roger Moody’s pro-paedophile activism and prolific writings and his links with politicians alluded to his in book ‘Indecent Assault’

Rochdale Council’s child abuse failings ‘unforgiveable’

Rotherham Politics

Children in local authority care in Rochdale who reported sexual and physical abuse were failed by the council, its chief executive has said.

Steve Rumbelow said events at Knowl View School and Cambridge House Hostel had “cast a long shadow over the town”.

He apologised, saying the council’s response to reports of abuse dating back to the 1960s was “unforgiveable”.

He added it was working to safeguard young people and assisting the Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

The independent inquiry which opens on 9 October will examine recent allegations into sexual abuse and exploitation of children residing at or attending Cambridge House and Knowl View.

It will also investigate if there were any “institutional failings”.
