Blow Landed Against Medievalists

December 6, 2010

Speaking after the case Detective Chief Inspector Andy Lee, who led the investigation said the victim had “left a legacy” for others in the same situation to seek help.
“The bravery this woman has shown, in supporting this prosecution against her own family and friends, has been very humbling to witness,” he said.

“She has done more than secure justice for herself, she has left a legacy that will help give other victims of the same kind of crime the strength to come forward and report these crimes to the police.

“Who knows how many men and women – currently frightened into silence in the name of family honour – will be so affected by this result that they too make a decision to break the cycle in the knowledge that the police and the courts will take their concerns seriously.
