UK government agency denies compensation to 14-year-old Muslim rape gang victim, says she consented

She is not 14 now; she was fourteen when she was victimized and brutalized by a Muslim rape gang, and supposedly “consented.”
“I am utterly shocked by the notion that decision-makers in a government organisation can consider that 14- or 15-year-old girls can consent to sex with adults. They decided she must have consented when it’s just not legally possible.”
Yes. But in shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain, in its final days as a free society, the primary objective of all officials is to avoid offending Muslims. The rights of anyone else can and will be trampled in service of this overriding goal.
“Government agency denied Rotherham sex abuse survivor compensation after telling her she ‘consented,’” by Anthony Pearce, Yahoo News UK, September 11, 2017:
A woman who was raped as a child by a Rotherham grooming gang was refused compensation after a government agency claimed she consented to the sexual abuse.
Sammy Woodhouse, who waived her anonymity this year, was 14 when she was groomed by the ringleader of the gang.
Her evidence helped convict her Arshid Hussain, 24, who was jailed for 35 years after being convicted —along with his brothers — of multiple offences including rape, abduction and indecent assault.
But Woodhouse was told by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) that she was not “manipulated”.
The BBC’s Inside Out Yorkshire and Lincolnshire programme found that CICA initially said: “I am not satisfied that your consent was falsely given as a result of being groomed by the offender.
“The evidence does not indicate that you were manipulated or progressively lured into a false relationship.”
Woodhouse said: “If an adult can privately think that it’s a child’s fault for being abused, beaten, raped, abducted, I think you’re in the wrong job.”
In July, it was revealed that sexually abused children as young as 12 are being denied compensation by the agency because they are considered to have “consented”.
The CICA, which is part of the Ministry of Justice, offers compensation payouts for sexual assault cases that range from £1,000 to £44,000.
However, it has refused payments to almost 700 child victims, a freedom of information request revealed.
The age of consent in the UK is 16, and the Sexual Offences Act 2003 provides specific legal protection for children aged 12 and under who cannot legally give their consent to any form of sexual activity.
But, by using a different criteria, the CICA has been able to deny compensation.
In one case, a 12-year-old girl who was given alcohol, led into the woods and sexually assaulted by a 21-year-old man, was denied compensation because she went with him “voluntarily”.
Her attacker pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 13.
Woodhouse’s solicitor David Greenwood said: “I am utterly shocked by the notion that decision-makers in a government organisation can consider that 14- or 15-year-old girls can consent to sex with adults.
“They decided she must have consented when it’s just not legally possible.”
In 2016, brothers Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras Hussain were convicted of sexually abusing young girls in the South Yorkshire town.
The men groomed and raped children for nearly 20 years, and were found guilty of 55 serious offences….
