Rape complaints were not classified as crimes 16.3.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
• Scotland Yard review finds guidelines were breached • Victims of Worboys among those affected by lapse The Metropolitan police failed to investigate scores of rape allegations because officers did not record them as criminal offences, the Guardian has learned. An internal review by found that women who complained to police that they feared they may have been raped or suffered a serious sexual assault had their concerns dismissed in up to six London boroughs. In a breach of police policy, officers instead classed the incidents as crime related incidents [CRI], meaning the cases were not investigated properly, informed sources say. Several women who believe they were victims of the black cab rapist John Worboys, suffered this fate, with ...

• Briton claims UK colluded in his torture in Egypt • Detainee says he was hooded and beaten over five days Allegations of British collusion in torture have widened to Egypt, where a young British man says he suffered appalling mistreatment during a week of illegal detention while being interrogated on the basis of information that he says can only have come from the UK. The development comes after the Conservative leader, David Cameron, said there needed to be a full inquiry, not just to discover whether crimes had been committed by British officials but to establish whether the government's "moral authority" has been maintained. Azhar Khan, a 26-year-old who has seen a number of friends jailed for terrorist offences, says Egyptian ...

Moral Policing abroad 15.3.2009 Asian Age: Delhi
Rhik Kundu Dc | Bengaluru Some of them had no clue that issues like moral policing exist in Indian society, before the Mangalore attacks. Others were exposed to incidents similar to this back in their own countries. But on the whole, the expatriate community was shocked while watching innocent girls on television being slapped and beaten up by the moral police brigade.

Soft on rape, soft on the causes of rape 15.3.2009 Guardian: Comment is Free
John Worboys' serial offending shows once again that sexual assault is not taken seriously and men are getting away with it Isn't it astonishing that a London taxi driver with raping and sexually assaulting women for so long?

In fact, I'd say there's nothing remotely astonishing about Worboys' criminal career, which is inevitable in a society that persistently refuses to detect and punish rape. The police are said to be bracing themselves for an avalanche of complaints from other women who've been assaulted by Worboys – 71 have come forward so far – and that's also what I'd expect when victims finally see an opportunity ...
