THE Oxford gang who abused girls as young as 11 and no older than 15 are:

Kamar Jamil (27): raped children and arranged child prostitution.
Akhtar Dogar (32): rape children, arranged child prostitution and trafficking a child within the UK for sexual exploitation.
Anjum Dogar (31): as above.
Bassam Karrar (33. as above.
Assad Hussain (32): sexual activity with a child.
Zeeshan Ahmed (27): sexual activity with a child (2).

And:

Mohammed Karrar (38): raped children, arranged child prostitution, trafficked a child within the UK for sexual exploitation, supplied heroin and assaulted a child by penetration, using an instrument to procure a miscarriage, supplying heroin.

Of the seven men, five are of Pakistani origin; two are of North African origin.

The abuse occurred between 2004 and 2011.

Joanna Simons is the head of Oxfordshire County Council. She says members of her staff “take enormous responsibility for what’s happened”. She has refused to resign. She says he asked herself some “very hard questions”. But whatever answers she found, none told her to leave her job:

“There is going to be an independent serious case review which will look at the actions of all the agencies concerned. My gut feeling is that I’m not going to resign because my determination is that we need to do all that we can to take action to stamp this out… This is the worst thing I’ve come across in 30 years of local government. It’s absolutely horrendous. We’re all incredibly sad, all of us, that we weren’t able to stop this any sooner.”

How did the officials fail the victims, all of whom are British?

One child lived at a children’s home. Over a 15 month period she disappeared 126 times in 15 months.

A staff member at an Oxford children’s home branded a 13-year-old victim as “sexualised and dangerous” . No, not in danger. Dangerous.

Of the six girls brave enough to give testimony to the court, five were being looked after by Oxfordshire County Council’s social services
