Rotherham child sexual abuse victims to take police to court

After getting away with inaction for decades, the police seem prepared to make the public see them as actively concealing information. What is the point of Freedom of Information laws if public officials can simply refuse to provide information? Note Prof. Jay calls for education? The video made to warn about Muslim grooming gangs has never been shown. And Jay says abuse has gone online. But since CEOP was setup 10 years ago, online abuse has been their principal concern.

Victims of child sexual abuse in Rotherham are set to take South Yorkshire police to court to force them to hand over confidential records on how they handled decades of abuse in the town.

A Sheffield lawyer, acting for 65 victims, has said he has no other choice as the force is refusing to disclose data, call logs and other documentation that could establish if allegations that officers turned a blind eye to grooming in the town were true.

Jay, who has been appointed a member of the panel in the Goddard inquiry into child sexual exploitation, said she was concerned that grooming had effectively gone underground because it was now perpetrated online.

“A worrying aspect of exploitation has been the more recent one of internet grooming, which was emerging latterly in Rotherham as it was elsewhere in the UK,” she said.

She has called for better education about exploitation in schools.
