Rotherham abuse trial: Woman denies 'embellishing' abuse claims

Some familiar names in this trial.


An alleged victim of a grooming gang has refuted claims she falsely accused one man of assaulting her in order to "embellish" her story.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims she was forced to perform a sex act on Basharat Hussain in Rotherham, in 2003, when she was 14.

Mr Hussain's barrister, however, told the jury at Sheffield Crown Court the incident had never taken place.

Mr Hussain and seven other men on trial deny 16 offences, including rape.

Defence counsel Gillian Batts said the witness did not make her allegation against Mr Hussain until after an article was published in The Times newspaper in which it was stated police were investigating members of Mr Hussain's family in connection with allegations of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.

Addressing the witness she said: "There's never been any sexual activity between you and him [Basharat Hussain] has there?

"You have embellished your account as the years have gone by and naming Mr Hussain is just another embellishment of your story isn't it?"

The witness replied: "No".

The eight men are on trial charged in connection with the sexual abuse of three girls between 1999 and 2003.

Prosecutors allege the girls were "targeted, sexualised and in some instances subjected to degrading acts of a degrading and violent nature at the hand of these men.

Earlier, defence counsel for Asif Ali, Charles Conway, said the witness had mistakenly identified his client as the man she claims raped her in Clifton Park, Rotherham, in 2003.

"The case I'm putting to you is that whatever happened on that day was not with Asif Ali and you have got that wrong."

The witness replied: "No, it was with Asif Ali."

The trial continues.

Why Muslims Kill For Islam

The book has now been re-printed and customers all over the world can now buy Mohammed's Koran (the No.1 best-seller banned by Amazon).


If you wonder if the book Mohammed's Koran is for you, read the 100s of five-star reviews the book received in its first few months on sale.

Amazon banned the sale of the only book on Islam that proves Islam has been a terrorist ideology since Year 1 of the Islamic calendar.  The book denounces violence and hatred, yet has been described as offensive by Amazon.  Meanwhile Amazon still sell copies of "Mein Kampf" (which advocates gassing Jews) and Amazon still sell books like "The Anarchist Cookbook" which (a bomb-making manual, the possession of which has led to terrorism charges in the UK).  Ebay has even banned the sale of used copies of Mohammed's Koran.  And from day one Google banned adverts for the book (instead the UK government spent a small fortune buying the top advertising slot to push their video begging people not to read the book).  Amazon staff are on record as saying that the order to ban the book came "from above Amazon". The propaganda from the state and the censorship from their tax-avoiding chums confirms the argument of Mohammed's Koran - the elite have knowingly invited this terrorist ideology into the West and they have sided with the terrorist ideology against the victims of terrorism.

With all this censorship you may not have heard of my new book (co-authored with Tommy Robinson). It was published at the end of July 2017.  The book went straight to No.1 on Amazon, and stayed there until the initial print-run of 5000 books sold out a few days later. For most of the following 18 months it was the No.1 best-selling Koran.  Muslims hated this fact.

The British media never reported on the book going straight to No.1.  They only reported on the book once sales of it had been banned.
