The rape of Radstock: the ‘foreign’ gang who might still be here
The Daily Mail and Sun want to tell you about Michelle Pavey, the victim of a sickening crime. Pavey, of Radstock, Bath, was raped in Bristol’s Eastville Park in November 2008. At 4:15pm. She is willing now to share the story of her ordeal
The Mail: ‘They were like a pack of wolves’: Woman relives the moment she was gang raped by five ‘foreign’ men as she went to pick up a KFC takeaway for her boyfriend”
The Sun: ‘They were like a pack of wolves’: Woman who was gang-raped by five ‘foreign’ men when she popped out for a KFC speaks about her horrific ordeal”
The headlines are almost identical. And the story is the same twice over: Michelle Pavey was raped by five man who dragged her into their car. Only one of the rapists was caught and tried. He’s Afghan asylum seeker Ahadullah Khughiani. In 2009 he was jailed for eight years for rape and stealing the victim’s mobile phone (he was cleared of kidnapping), and was recently deported.
The Bristol Post says police caught him because, “Evidence was found to match the DNA taken from Khughiani when he arrived in Britain in 2008 seeking asylum.”
Both national tabloids then add: “The other attackers are believed to have fled the country.”
Believed to have fled? They don’t know?
