Over a 12 year period, hundreds of children were systematically raped, beaten and sex trafficked in a northern English town, and the government commissioned report on the incident reveals that it is still going on today.
For more than 12 years a large community of Pakistanis living in England have enjoyed sexually abusing girls while officials turned a blind eye a new report reveals.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - This horrifying revelation has also exposed cultural tensions between authorities and the town's ethnic minorities. The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham revealed that social counselors saw evidence of this exploitation early on, but turned a blind eye.
The city's government made the inquiry's report available on its website, revealing at least 1,400 cases of abuse between 1997 and 2013-a conservative time estimate-which included gang rape and death threats. Currently, special investigators are handling 51 cases and other teams are also involved in looking into other additional cases.
"There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone," the report says.
"Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators," the inquiry says.
The report identifies that politicians, social services and police were totally unable or unwilling to stop these acts committed by Rotherham's Muslim population.
The perpetrators, who were mostly Pakistani, worked together, inflicting these barbaric acts on white girls, the report said.
Social counselors took a hands-off approach on these cases, not wanting to be labeled racists or stoking a right-wing backlash in the city.
"Several (counselors) interviewed believed that by opening up these issues they could be 'giving oxygen' to racist perspectives that might in turn attract extremist political groups and threaten community cohesion. To some extent this concern was valid, with the apparent targeting of the town by groups such as the English Defence League," the report says.
Most of the known victims were white, but there was also systematic abuse by select groups of Pakistani man against women within the ethnic group. These inter-ethnic incidents often go unreported because the victims fear vengeance or public shame in their communities, the report revealed. The perpetrators may also use fear to blackmail these victims into continued servitude.
"The first of these reports was effectively suppressed, because some senior officers disbelieved the data it contained," the report said.
"Police gave no priority to (child sexual abuse), regarding many child victims with contempt and failing to act on their abuse as a crime," the report added.
Government awareness did not seriously appear until 2009, by which time the thinly staffed social service workers were overwhelmed by the number of potential victims.
"The team struggles to keep pace with the demands of its workload," the report concluded.
