It’s really sad to see survivor attacking survivor.
But sadly it happens.
I think we’re seeing it more right now because the CSA Inquiry appears stalled.
Anything I publish is only in response to media manoeuvres by others.
Right now I’m responding to this story, just published, in The Guardian – HERE
I’ve known this from the moment I saw the list of signatories in the letter to the Home Secretary a few days ago but it was only earlier today that the survivor contacted me herself and we discussed it. The original letter including all the signatories can be found HERE
The female survivor of child sexual abuse, currently a witness in a criminal investigation connected to a prominent police operation, received this unsolicited contact via email and it contained inappropriate images of young girls in bondage. The survivor made a complaint to the police at the time about 18 months ago and contacted me about it at the time.
It’s not for me to say anything more than that other than that the survivor has indicated to me that she will make the complaint once again given the prominent role that this person has assumed.
I’d prefer this to stop. I’d prefer it if otherwise good people weren’t attacked but just so we’re clear, if it continues then so will I. Every action will have an equal and opposite reaction.
This is only undermining the case for all survivors.
