Rotherham councillor Jahangir Akhtar steps down over claims

The deputy leader of Rotherham Council has stepped down over claims he knew about a relationship between a girl in care and a suspected child abuser.

Jahangir Akhtar's decision follows the publication of one woman's account of being allowed contact with the alleged abuser from 1999, when aged 14.

The Times newspaper reported Mr Akhtar is related to the alleged offender and was aware of their relationship.

Mr Akhtar said he was resigning out of "courtesy". He denies the claims.

He said he was also standing down as vice-chairman of the Police and Crime Panel, which scrutinises the local force.

Mr Akhtar said: "I am standing down temporarily as deputy leader of the Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and as vice-chairman of the Police and Crime Panel as a matter of courtesy to those agencies to resolve any inquiry as quickly as possible."

A spokesman for Rotherham Council said: "The council has referred the allegations made in the Times newspaper relating to Councillor Akhtar to South Yorkshire Police to consider if any criminal offence has been committed and to undertake any appropriate criminal investigation."
'Predatory men'

South Yorkshire Police said it had begun an investigation but would not comment further until it was complete.

Mr Akhtar's decision to step down comes as lawyers for four women said they were set to sue Rotherham Council for "systematic failures to protect them from sexual abuse by predatory men" when they were children.

One of the women, now in her 20s, told the Times she began a relationship with a 24-year-old man, who had served two prison sentences for violent offences, in 1999, when she was 14.

It is understood the man twice made the girl pregnant.

The newspaper said social services became aware before the relationship ended that the man was part of a ring of men suspected of abusing more than 40 young teenagers in Rotherham.

The article states that by June 2000, both police and social services knew the teenager, who had been placed in emergency foster care, was in a sexual relationship with the man.
'Fatal damage'

Lawyer David Greenwood, who is acting for some of the alleged victims, said: "It is very likely that my clients will be taking legal action against Rotherham Council and potentially the police for failing to protect them over a long period of time."

Police criticised The Times article, saying: "South Yorkshire Police deeply regrets the decision by The Times newspaper to publish an article about an ongoing, complex and highly sensitive investigation into matters of historic child sexual exploitation.

"The Times newspaper contacted South Yorkshire Police on Monday, 19 August announcing its intention to publish an article about these issues. In response, the force informed the newspaper that any such publication could seriously undermine and, at worst, cause fatal damage to this inquiry."

The Times said it published the story despite South Yorkshire Police's request because it "wants to see justice for child sex exploitation victims".

"Asian" sex gangs operated for a decade in Rotherham as authorities refused to acknowledge the problem, chilling police files reveal

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2207756/Victim-sex-gang-offered-Urdu-Punjabi-lessons-confidential-papers-reveal.html

Asian sex gangs were able to groom, pimp and traffic girls across the UK for more than a decade while authorities failed to publicly acknowledge the problem was happening, confidential documents reveal today.A dossier of internal police, social services and intelligence reports shows that agencies in South Yorkshire were aware that vulnerable girls were being abused, but a catalogue of alleged crimes were not prosecuted.In one case, a white girl who was sexually abused by an Asian gang from the age of 12 was offered lessons in Urdu and Punjabi by her local council after her ordeal.

Rotherham Council proposed the lessons to the girl, who was known by social services to have been sexually exploited, in an attempt 'to engage' her in education.

The documents show that authorities were aware of a problem of offenders, largely men of Pakistani heritage, sexually exploiting vulnerable girls, but never publicly acknowledged that it was happening.

A child welfare expert, speaking under condition of anonymity, said the agencies' reluctance to tackle street-grooming networks was 'the biggest child protection scandal of our time'.


The papers, whcih emerged today outline many cases of alleged sexual exploitation for which no one was prosecuted, including:

Fifty-four children from Rotherham were linked to sexual exploitation by three brothers from a British Pakistani family. Eighteen girls identified one brother as their 'boyfriend'. He allegedly made several of them pregnant.

An intelligence report for police identified 61 girls who were linked to sexual exploitation by three brothers from another British Pakistani family. It named 41 of the brothers' associates, who allegedly used girls for sex.

A 14-year-old girl was allegedly held in a flat and forced to perform sex acts on four Pakistani men and an Iraqi Kurd asylum seeker. She was interviewed by police on camera and identified her alleged abusers.

A 15-year-old girl spent days in hospital after a broken bottle was allegedly forced inside her by two young men in a park.

After neighbours heard screaming, a 13-year-old girl was found at 3am in a house with a large group of men who had given her vodka. Police arrested the child for being drunk and disorderly but did not question the men.Among the papers is a confidential 2010 police intelligence report warning that thousands of sexual exploitation crimes are committed in South Yorkshire each year.
[*]'Possibly the most shocking threat is the existence of substantial and organised offender networks that groom and exploit victims on a worrying scale,' the report states. 'Practitioners throughout the force state there is a problem with networks of Asian offenders both locally and nationally.

[/*][*]'This was particularly stressed in Sheffield and even more so in Rotherham, where there appears to be a significant problem with networks of Asian males exploiting young white females.'

The report, seen by The Times, states that such groups are believed to have trafficked victims to other cities and towns, including Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham, Bradford and Dover.

Another confidential 2010 report, for the Rotherham Safeguarding Children Board, warns against drawing too much attention to the ethnic origin of the alleged abusers.

It states: 'Great care will be taken in drafting...this report to ensure that its findings embrace Rotherham's qualities of diversity. It is imperative that suggestions of a wider cultural phenomenon are avoided.'

[/*]
The documents indicate that sexual exploitation of young girls has been a long-running problem in South Yorkshire.

It is understood that, as long ago as 1996, a social services investigation in Rotherham found concerns that girls at residential care homes were being forced into 'child prostiution' by a small group of men.

[*]Two years later, as many as 70 girls from the town were said to be involved.

[/*][*]More than a decade passed before police in Rotherham mounted their first major investigation into a grooming network in the town.[/*][*]In 2010 five men were given jail sentences totalling 32 years after being found guilty of a range of sexual offences.

During a trial at Sheffield Crown Court, jurors heard how the men developed relationships with three teenage girls, having sex with them in cars and parks in the Rotherham area.

The girls believed they were in relationships with the much older men.

[/*][*]Rotherham MP Denis MacShane said: ‘The sexual violation and commercial exploitation of young girls by older men is a growing problem and needs far more public policy attention.

'The Rotherham police exposed, arrested and broke up an evil gang of internal traffickers who were sent to prison.'But it is clear that the internal trafficking of barely pubescent girls is much more widespread and I regret that the police did not tell Yorkshire MPs about their inquiries.

'We need clear leadership from government to eradicate this evil.'

The problem rose to prominence in January last year after former Home Secretary accused some Pakistani men of seeing white girls as 'easy meat' for sexual abuse.

He said at the time: 'There is a specific problem which involves Pakistani heritage men... who target vulnerable young white girls.

'We need to get the Pakistani community to think much more clearly about why this is going on and to be more open about the problems that are leading to a number of Pakistani heritage men thinking it is OK to target white girls in this way.'

He added: 'These young men are in a western society, in any event, they act like any other young men, they're fizzing and popping with testosterone, they want some outlet for that, but Pakistani heritage girls are off-limits and they are expected to marry a Pakistani girl from Pakistan, typically.

'So they then seek other avenues and they see these young women, white girls who are vulnerable, some of them in care... who they think are easy meat.

'And because they're vulnerable they ply them with gifts, they give them drugs, and then of course they're trapped.'


The revelations come only three months after it emerged that social services in Rotherham had known for six years that a teenage mother, murdered for bringing shame on the families of two men who had used her for sex, was at clear risk from predatory gangs.


Laura Wilson, 17, had been groomed by a string of men before she was stabbed and thrown into a canal to die for informing her abusers' families of the sexual relationships.


Her killer Ashtiaq Asghar, who was 18 at the time, was given a life sentence and will serve a minimum of 17-and-a-half years after he pleaded guilty to murdering Laura in October 2010.


But it emerged in June that Rotherham Council's social services were well aware she was at risk and had received information about certain adults suspected of targeting her from the age of 11.

A serious case review report confirmed that Laura had dealings with 15 agencies and identified 'numerous missed opportunities' to protect her.


It stated that she eventually became 'almost invisible' to care professional.

Rotherham Council's Cabinet member for services for children, young people and families, Councillor Paul Lakin, said: 'There is no question that we will do whatever we can to protect our young people from harm in whatever form that threat takes.

'The Council has already acknowledged publicly that there have been lessons learnt from previous work, cases and investigations and that the support offered to a small number of vulnerable young people has not always reached the high standards we always look to provide.

'From that learning, improvements have been made and new services introduced and those developments will continue.

'Following the recommendations from a serious case review, inspections and our own learning on other cases, the sexual exploitation team has recently evolved from the original youth service
project into the new multi-agency service to improve preventative and support work along with boosting efforts to investigate cases and bring people to justice.

'We are also maintaining our major investment in protecting children at a time when public sector budgets are under increasing pressure.

'We have pledged our commitment by prioritising the amount of money being put into safeguarding services along with prevention and early help work with families to help ensure they get the support they need.

'Sexual predators do come from different sections of the community and are criminals who need to be brought to justice regardless of their background.

'We have worked closely with communities and community leaders across Rotherham in recent years to enlist their support in helping to tackle some of these issues and to educate people about sexual exploitation.

'The response has been very positive and our commitment to continue to tackle this issue is shared by local agencies and our communities.'

South Yorkshire Police are yet to comment on the documents

[/*][*]An 11-week trial heard that the men would target vulnerable teenage girls and pass them around for sex.


If the girls did not submit, they were plied with cheap vodka and raped.


It emerged during the trial that police and social services had missed opportunities to stop the abuse.


Ahmed, pictured above, was jailed for 19 years for his role in the street-grooming ring.

In August he was given a separate 22-year prison term, to run concurrently with the first, after he was convicted of raping another child in his community.


Earlier this month, Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children Board announced that a serious case review into the exploitation would be held.


The board's chairman Lynne Jones told the BBC that the review would look at the experiences of four young people and how agencies responded to their needs.


The review would focus on what help was available to the girls in the early stages of their ordeal and how reports of concern about the victims were handled.

23rd AUGUST 2013
BY SWITALSKIS SOLICITORS CHILD ABUSE LAWYERS

Child Sex Abuse Scandal
Rotherham Council to be sued

A number of Rotherham women have instructed solicitors to sue Rotherham
Council for systemic failures to protect them from sexual abuse by predatory
men when they were children. The women have instructed Yorkshire
solicitors, Switalskis, to investigate claims following the publication of a report
into child sexual exploitation by the House of Commons Home Affairs
Committee earlier this year.

An article in The Times on 23 August 2013 has revealed that a child in the
care of Rotherham social services was allowed daily contact with a violent
adult offender who was suspected of grooming more than a dozen teenagers
to use and sell for sex. Andrew Norfolk said “The case lays bare a
catastrophic failure of child protection services in a town that gained notoriety
as Britain’s under-age sex capital after a spate of pregnancies among girls
barely into their teens.”

The Times revealed that before the relationship ended a social services
mapping exercise warned that the man was among a small group of men who
were suspected of involvement in the sexual exploitation of more than 40
young teenagers in Rotherham, including more than a dozen who expressed
their belief that the 24 year old man was their boyfriend.

In June 2013 the Home Affairs Committee report noted that those abused
were generally vulnerable girls aged between 12 and 16 and that a
disproportionate number were looked after by local authorities.

The report looked at localised grooming, a model of child sexual exploitation
in which a group of abusers target vulnerable children. The group typically
makes initial contact with victims in a public place. The children are offered
gifts and treats. The children sometimes identify one offender as a “boyfriend”,
and might regard the sexual abuse by multiple offenders as “normal”. The
gangs sometimes use younger men or boys to make the initial approach.

In summary, the report noted that:


the abused child might see the situation as a genuine relationship and
the groomer as a “boyfriend”;

the abuser typically plays on the child’s insecurities, making them feel
“special” or “loved”;


the child might nonetheless feel ashamed of the sexual activity itself; or
of

ancillary activities such as the consumption of drugs or alcohol, further
increasing their reluctance to come forward;

the grooming might extend to befriending the child’s family or carers,
so the child feels unable to tell them about the situation.
Leading child abuse lawyer David Greenwood of Switalskis, acting for some
of the abused girls, said: “It is important to remember that at the time of the
abuse they were children under the age of 16 and could not legally consent.
The report noted part of the problem is that adults may misunderstand the
grooming process and assume that the young person was a willing participant
in a relationship, rather than the victim of sexual abuse”.

In the conclusions to the report the Home Affairs Committee criticised
Rotherham Council for being “inexcusably slow” to realise that the
widespread, organised sexual abuse of children, many of them in the
care of the local authority, was taking place on their doorstep. The
report said that this was due to a “woeful lack of professional curiosity
or indifference” and to dismissing “the victims – children as young as 12

-as ‘prostitutes’. That it took so long for anybody, at any level from the
Chief Executive downward, to look at reports of young girls with
multiple, middle-aged ‘boyfriends’, hanging around takeaways, drinking
and taking drugs, and to think that it might be worth investigating
further, is shocking.”
The Home Affairs Committee concluded it was clear that senior
leadership in Rotherham Council “failed in their duty of care towards
these girls”.

Martin Kimber, Chief Executive of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council,
told The Times that the town’s “services to safeguard young people prior to
2009 were simply not good enough” and said that the council had already
apologised “to all young people … who were let down”.

David Greenwood, solicitor of Switalskis said “It is very likely that my clients
will be taking legal action against the Rotherham Council and potentially the
police for failing to protect them over a long period of time”.

Switalskis have a large team of lawyers who are specialists in child abuse
claims. The team has been successful in securing compensation in many
complex child abuse claims, including large group actions.
