Personal News. April 2015.
I have been making a rape allegation against 3 men since 1987. Unfortunately for everyone, around 2000, a decision was made to ignore these confidences and protect people within the authorities. Following advice from Northumbria Police that they didn’t intend to pursue the allegation and a death threat from a member of the Northumberland NHS in 2002, I withdrew the allegation in 2003 in order to try and protect my late mother, who was at that stage terminally ill.
Following this, I reported the case to a well known conflict resolution organisation, in the belief that this would enable me to position family or friends as go-betweens with the Police. My main aim at that time was to resolve things whilst my late mother was alive. Instead, I wasn’t permitted access to any intermediaries or legal representatives for the remainder of my mother’s life, when the use of hacking and blackmail became completely intolerable. Because of this, much evidence and other separate cases remained undisclosed.
As I have now lost all the people I was fighting for, I have withdrawn from any involvement in this case. My health, as well as my family and work life have all been affected. I mentioned the rape in order to do the right thing but it has achieved the exact opposite and I really wish I had never mentioned it.
