Anonymity for those accused of rape: One good reason right here.

Re this, you might well expect feminist harridans to be up in arms. You’d not be disappointed.

No sooner have I left a left a comment under her blogpost, than a perfect illustration presents itself:

A 21-year-old woman drove a man to suicide by crying rape and forced a second innocent man to consider taking his own life after falsely accusing him of a similar sex attack.

Despite being exposed in court as a serial liar, the law means the woman cannot be identified and can hide behind the cloak of anonymity.

A jury took just 45 minutes to clear medical student Olumide Fadayomi, 27, of rape and several jurors at Sheffield Crown Court broke down in tears when the judge then revealed the ‘victim’s’ history of crying rape.

And in an emerging theme, the CPS are also left looking like pig-ignorant vindictive functionaires.

Judge Patrick Robertshaw launched an astonishing attack on Crown Prosecution Service lawyers for making Fadayomi stand trial, simply to abide by the woman’s wishes.

He said:’The evidence did not, and was never going to, prove rape. The prime overriding consideration in the CPS’s decision had been merely that the complainant wished the case to go ahead.

‘It was little short of a craven abdication of responsibility for making an independent and fair minded assessment of the case.

‘It is quite astonishing these decisions are made by those who simply do not have experience of what happens in Crown Court because they never come into Crown Court. They sit behind desks and make decisions that result in this sort of trial taking place.’

You do surprise me. Not.

Meantime, Ms Williams, untwist your knickers, wake up and smell the coffee. Or pipe down.

    Well said… The trouble is that for every false allegation, the real ones are treated with less sympathy. IF you stand up in court and lie, you commit perjury. If you lie about being attacked, you do so with the express intent of getting some innocent punished for a non crime,and for yourself maybe to profit with compensation claims. (the words Jeffrey and Archer spring to mind here).
    As rape is such a Heinous crime, and should never be belittled, as I am sure you agree, each false allegation not only destroys a defendants life, far more than being falsely accused of theft, or GBH does by the nature of the alleged offence, but makes life harder for the real victims of attacks to get deserved justice, BUT the bleeding hearts and looney feminist brigade carry on claiming that women never lie about these things… and thus the cause of sensible equality is set further back.

    Good post Al. Surprisingly enough there is a similar story in todays edition of our local rag, The Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

    I’m guessing there isn’t a target for Perverting the Course of Justice convictions … or for using common sense within the CPS.

    Indeed!

    I’ve been collecting these for a while.

    A priest I know was wrongly convicted of sexual abuse: in a closed hearing, the supposed victim on a video link, his lawyer refused to call any of the several people who themselves were phoning him and writing to him, and who turned up at the court despite his brush-offs, because they had evidence of the (mentally disturbed) woman’s habitual manipulative lying and motive for doing so in this case – it was unbelievable. Since then someone’s had that lawyer dragged over the professional coals, (though they seem to be pretty lukewarm, shame there’s no flogging) and there’s an appeal, but the fact that this could happen rather shook me.

  9. Hear hear! We need to get rid of the influence of man-haters like Harriet Harman, for whom to be accused of rape is synonymous with being guilty of it. We also need a law that will allow jurors to hear before their deliberations whether a defendant has been found guilty of the same sort of crime in the past.

    I had a similar petition at the “Number 10″ site here. I cannot see how they can allow female anonymity but not male – even the Feminazis must see the dichotomy?
