11 Asian men face sexual abuse charges in BritainFebruary 22nd, 2012 - 12:43 am ICT by IANS
London, Feb 21 (IANS) A group of 11 Asian men plied five girls, as young as 13, with drink and drugs and had sex with them several times a day, a British court heard Tuesday. All the girls were from broken homes and one was in care.
A trial at Liverpool Crown Court was told that the five girls, who were aged between 13 and 15 when the alleged abuse began, were passed around by the men ‘who acted together to sexually exploit the girls’, the Daily Mail reported.
The offences are said to have occurred in and around Rochdale town, Greater Manchester, in 2008 and 2009. However, all the accused Asians have pleaded not guilty in the case.
The court heard that some of the girls were raped and physically assaulted and some were forced to have sex with “several men in a day, several times a week”.
Prosecutor Rachel Smith said: “Some of you may find what you are about to hear distressing. The events and circumstances described by the girls are at best saddening and at worst shocking in places.”
Smith said the girls were given alcohol, food and money in return for sex but that there were times when violence was used.
“There were also occasions on which one or more of the girls were so incapacitated by alcohol and or drugs that they were incapable of having any control over whether or with whom they had sexual intercourse,” she said.
The court was told that some of the defendants paid the girls and took payments from other men to whom they supplied the girls for sex.
