Rochdale grooming trial: investigation to focus on victims, not ethnicity, says DPP
by Rosa Prince
Kier Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, has said that a review into child sexual exploitation would focus on the failure to listen to victims rather than the ethnicity of the perpetrators.
Following the conviction earlier this year of a number of Asian men who abused white girls in Rochdale, questions were raised about the cultural backgrounds of those involved, and whether this had allowed exploitation to flourish.
In particular, it was suggested that practices such as arranged marriages encouraged some Asian men to view girls from other communities with a lack of respect.
