Rotherham MEP Jane Collins has called for an “urgent, immediate investigation into the apparent industrial scale child sexual exploitation in and around Telford.”
Ms Collins, who has spent years campaigning for justice for the Rotherham victims, also said the West Midlands PCC and nine councillors who wrote to Amber Rudd saying an inquiry was ‘not necessary’ need to be named and held accountable for their actions.
“It brings me to tears to think that despite everything people said had been learnt from the scandal in Rotherham, and the suffering and abuse of those victims, we still have young girls being raped by predominantly Pakistani Muslim men, just as they were and, I believe, still are in Rotherham.”
“When did some people in the police, in social services and in local and national government start thinking that the systematic rape and abuse of children was acceptable, which trying to stop an investigation seems to indicate?”
“In Rotherham, South Yorkshire Police treated the victims like criminals. And we hear again from one of the mothers of a victim who died in a car crash described as a “prank” after suffering from two years of abuse saying the same thing.”
Torron Watson, mother of Becky, who died aged 13 said “Girls like Becky were treated like criminals.”
“A girl of 13 is not a criminal for being raped and abused, she is a victim and it is the disgusting perverts who abused and violated her who are the criminals.”
Ms Collins, who is facing bankruptcy over her outspoken criticism of how the authorities handled CSE in Rotherham, said she was also “deeply worried that people are more concerned about not offending ethnic minorities than in protecting girls.”
“Dennis MacShane admitted that the reason things were not really investigated in Rotherham was because he didn’t want to ‘rock the multicultural community boat’
“Nothing is more important than safeguarding our children from vile sexual abuse and the associated drugs, violence and even murder that comes part and parcel with it.
“If one good thing were to come out of what happened in Rotherham it should have been that people stopped treating people based on the colour of their skin and the communities they belong to and instead looked at the reality of systemic abuse of predominantly young, white girls treated like sex slaves.
“Yet years on, evidence suggests that even that hasn’t permeated the bubble in which some local authorities and politicians appear to live.
“We need to rock that boat and drain the swamp of anyone who thinks child sexual exploitation is something which can be covered up.”
