Halifax police investigating doctor who for sexually assaulting RCMP members for 22 years
By Ross Lord and Alexander Quon Global News

Halifax Regional Police are investigating a doctor after numerous complaints from former RCMP officers and applicants that he sexually assaulted them during medical examinations.

Halifax Regional Police are investigating a doctor after numerous complaints from former RCMP officers and applicants that he sexually assaulted them during medical examinations and periodic health assessments.

According to an internal RCMP email written by the force’s acting human resources officer, the incidents are alleged to have occurred between 1981 and 2003 at the RCMP’s Health Services Office in the “Atlantic Region.”

The doctor who is alleged to have assaulted members of the RCMP is not named in the email.

“If you are a victim, or if you have any information regarding this matter, please contact the Halifax Regional Police,” writes Assistant Commissioner Stephen White, in an email that was distributed to members of the RCMP.

The Halifax police confirmed to Global News they are investigating the allegations.

“We can confirm that an investigation has been opened following reports of sexual assaults against RCMP employees and recruits involving incidents that took place at the RCMP Health Services Office between October 1981 and July 2003,” said Const. Carol MacIsaac, a spokesperson with the Halifax Regional Police.

According to the internal email, the doctor in question — who has not been identified — has since retired from practising medicine.

Police confirmed today that the number of abused people may be in the several dozens. The doctor was an RCMP employee.

PPP support hanging convicts of child sexual abuse
and murder

PPP - Pakistan People's Party is a centre-left party in both federal and provincial parliaments.

ISLAMABAD: The PPP on Monday strongly supported the hanging of those convicted of child sexual abuse and murder. Senate Standing Committee on Interior Chairman PPP Senator Rehman Malik suspended the agenda of the parliamentary body’s meeting and announced that the committee will discuss the kidnapping, rape and murder of two girls, seven and four, from Kasur and Mardan.

During his tenure as the interior minister, the then president Asif Ali Zardari had put a moratorium on death sentences on the demand of the European Union.

In the meeting on Monday, Mr Malik proposed that the child sexual abuse and murder be punished by hanging.

“We need to know why the murderers could not be tracked down. Many people have called me and suggested that culprits of such heinous crimes should be hanged in public. According to section 364-A of the Pakistan Penal Code, a person can be given the death penalty, life imprisonment or a minimum of seven years of imprisonment for kidnapping or murdering a child of less than 14 years. It is unfortunate that we have failed to give justice to our children,” he said.

7 years for raping and murdering a child is a joke, a sick, bad joke.

He then tabled a resolution which was unanimously passed by the committee. He said a draft bill will be moved to make amendments to the law. However, Senator Javed Abbasi said the execution of death sentences can be done by amending the rules and that new legislation is therefore not needed. The interior ministry was then directed to give input on whether public executions can be done by making amendments to the rules.

Supreme Court advocate Anees Jillani disagreed with the suggestion and said its implementation will mean there is no difference between the government and the Taliban.

The father of seven-year-old Zainab, who was kidnapped, raped and killed in Kasur, Ameen Ansari was also invited to the meeting. He said his daughter and her five-year-old cousin were going to their aunt’s house on Jan 4 for Quran lessons.

“Zainab had some money and she went to the shop while her cousin went to their aunt’s house. The shop is just 100 metres from their aunt’s house. When Usman came home, the family got to know that Zainab had not gone to her aunt’s house and that she was missing. I was in Saudi Arabia so my brother-in-law informed the police,” he told the meeting.

“Residents of the area cooperated but the police did nothing for the recovery of the child. They were requested to get sniffer dogs to track down Zainab and the family even offered to pay for this, but the police did not. When the body was found and identified, we once again requested the police to get sniffer dogs but they refused. Locals cooperated with us and provided CCTV footage in which my daughter can be seen with the suspect,” Mr Ansari said.

He added that the CCTV footage shows the suspect passing through the area the morning after the abduction which meant he was still in the area.

“My family requested the police to cordon off the area and search all houses, but they refused. Officials visited [us] a few times and would go back after eating oranges,” he said.

Mr Ansari said he was told that the suspect had used a spray which dazes children.

Additional Inspector General of Police (IGP) Investigation Punjab, Khuda Bakhsh said nine such cases had been reported since June 2015 within a three kilometre radius in which girls between the ages of five and 10 were kidnapped and sexually abused.

“DNA tests show that in eight of the cases, the culprit is the same. He throws the dead bodies near the victim’s house so the family gets the bodies. We have deputed as many as 200 people for the arrest of the suspect and 692 DNA tests have been conducted despite the fact that one test costs Rs60,000. Inter Services Intelligence is also helping us in identifying the culprit,” he said.

Senator Malik suggested that a national database of DNA be formed with the help of the National Database and Registration Authority.

“Culprits will be identified within minutes if we had such a database,” he said.





Accused confesses to raping 3 y/o in Pakistan

NOWSHERA: A man accused of raping three-year-old girl confessed to his crime in a judicial magistrate’s court, Superintendent of Police (SP) Investigation Sanaullah Khan confirmed on Tuesday.

A medical report confirmed that the minor was raped by accused Muhammad Hammad – who was sent to jail on judicial remand.

The man — a self-employed garbage collector — had coaxed the child into accompanying him into an under-construction site by offering her sweets on Thursday, January 18, 2018.

The rapist attempted to escape the crime scene but was roughed up by citizens after the three-year-old girl's calls for help were heard by passersby.

Hammad, who originally belongs to Pak Pattan, was living in a rented accommodation in Nowshera for the past five years.

The case is one of the numerous incidents of child abuse and murder that have been highlighted in the media after the recent rape and murder cases of two minors — Aasma and Zainab — sparked widespread condemnation as well as calls to address the issue of child sexual abuse.





Archbishop of Canterbury refuses to clear
late Bishop Bell of child sexual abuse

The Archbishop of Canterbury has refused to declare the late Bishop Bell innocent of sexually abusing a young girl in the 1950s despite calls from his supporters to clear his name.

A review published in December criticised the church for rushing to believe the alleged victim’s allegations “without serious investigation or inquiry”.

It emerged that the original investigation had failed to seek out witnesses who had known or worked with Bishop Bell during his time as Bishop of Chichester between 1929 and 1958.

Claims made by a woman known only as “Carol” of abuse by Bishop Bell when she was aged between five and eight in the 1950s led the church to issue an apology and pay more than £15,000 in compensation in 2013.

The review, led by Lord Carlile of Berriew, found that the Church had “rushed to judgment”.

But on Monday, Justin Welby refused to deem Bishop Bell innocent despite the failings of the original investigation.

He said: “Our history over the last 70 years has revealed that the church covered up, ignored or denied the reality of abuse on major occasions. I need only refer to the issues relating to Peter Ball to show an example.”

He said that the Diocese of Chichester had been given legal advice based on the civil standard of proof, the balance of probability, and not on the criminal standard of proof, which is beyond reasonable doubt.

He continued: “As in the case of Peter Ball, and others, it is often suggested that what is being alleged could not have been true, because the person writing knew the alleged abuser and is absolutely certain that it was impossible for them to have done what is alleged.

“As with Peter Ball this sometimes turns out to be untrue, not through their own fault or deceit but because abuse is often kept very secret.

“The experience of discovering feet of clay in more than one person I held in profound respect has been personally tragic.

“But as I said strongly in my original statement the complaint about Bishop Bell does not diminish the importance of his great achievements and he is one of the great Anglican heroes of the 20th century.”

Bishop Bell was famous for helping to rescue Jewish children transported out of Germany during the Second World War and criticising the blanket bombing of German civilians.

Following the publication of the review, the archbishop said: “No human being is entirely good or bad. Bishop Bell was in many ways a hero. He is also accused of great wickedness,” he said.

“Good acts do not diminish evil ones, nor do evil ones make it right to forget the good. Whatever is thought about the accusations, the whole person and whole life should be kept in mind.”

In a letter published in the Telegraph on January 18, Professors Sir Ian Kershaw, Charmian Brinson, Andrew Chandler, John Charmley, Michael J Hughes, Jeremy Noakes and Keith Robbins called for the archbishop to retract his comments.

They wrote: “The statement of Dec 15 2017 seems to us both irresponsible and dangerous.

“We therefore urge you, in all sincerity, to repudiate what you have said before more damage is done and thus to restore the esteem in which the high, historic office to which you have been called has been held.”

They added: “The allegation is not only wholly uncorroborated but is contradicted by all the considerable, and available, circumstantial material which any historian would consider credible.”

Stand strong, Justin; you are right on this, as usual.





St Albans man jailed after trying to arrange
sexual abuse of children
Anne Suslak

A Shenley man has been jailed for four years after being caught in a police sting operation trying to arrange sex with children.

John O’Shea, of Pippin Close, was caught by police after travelling from Hertfordshire to Leicester, where he was expecting to rape and sexually abuse an 11-year-old girl and her eight-year-old brother.

At the end of his 85-mile journey, police caught O’Shea in a Burger King restaurant at the Meridian retail park on November 16 last year and arrested him.

O’Shea had thought he was talking over the internet to the children’s mother, ‘Emma’, who was actually an undercover officer.

Satya Chotalia, prosecuting O’Shea in St Albans Crown Court yesterday (January 22), said: “He accepted speaking to Emma on Chatstep. He accepted he was seeking children to have sex with. Over seven to 10 days he had communicated with her by text, had given her his mobile number and sent her a picture of himself.

“Within the messages he said he wanted to have sexual activity with both children. He said he knew it was wrong and illegal.”

O’Shea set out what he wanted to happen in graphic and explicit texts.

When the police examined his mobile phone they found indecent images of children, which included 10 category A images and one category A movie - the most serious level. In addition there were 60 category B images and one video, and 11 category C images, the least serious level.

O’Shea admitted two offences of arranging to meet a child under 13 for the commission of a child sex offence. He also pleaded guilty to three charges of making (downloading) indecent images of children.

Andel Singh, defending O’Shea, said he had given full and frank admissions to the police and had never been in trouble before. He said: “He knows he brought it upon himself and does not want to blame anyone else. He wants help while in the prison system. It is something he is keen to do and he is keen to understand it, so the behaviour is never repeated.”

Mr Singh also told the court that O’Shea had lost his job and his partner of 30 years, who wants little to do with him. In addition to jailing him, Recorder Amanda Tipples QC said O’Shea must abide by the terms of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and register as a sex offender indefinitely.





West Midlands man jailed over horrific
child sex abuse spanning decades

A delivery driver behind a string of sickening child sex attacks has been jailed for nearly 20 years. Peter Collins abused young girls for two decades until one of his victims found the courage to speak out.

The “predatory” 58-year-old, of Talfourd Street, Bordesley Green, denied the claims against him and said he had a condition which caused him to fall asleep and not know what he was doing.

But his cover story was dismissed by jurors who convicted him of 12 charges after a three-week trial at Birmingham Crown Court.

He was jailed for 19 years and ordered to register as a sex offender for life on Monday.

Investigating officer, Det Con Katrina Sands, from West Midlands Police’s Public Protection Unit, said: “Collins abused vulnerable young girls and continued his predatory behaviour for over several decades.

All victims gave evidence in court and I commend their bravery in re-living what are surely very painful memories.

“When confronted, Collins denied the allegations and claimed in his defence that he had a condition which led to him fall asleep unexpectedly in a number of places and being unaware of what he was doing. “Expert witnesses gave evidence which didn’t support this claim.

“We are delighted the jury saw through Collins’ denial the offences had happened and this now means he will be a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.

“We hope that anyone else who may have been abused by him now has the courage to come forward.”

Collins began his abuse in 1995 on a girl who was aged 11 at the time, West Midlands Police said.

He then sexually assaulted two other girls, with his last recorded assault being on a 12-year-old girl, which was reported in 2016. One of the victims spoke out about her ordeal the same year, and the police began an investigation.

Collins was convicted of three counts of indecent assault, one of indeceny with a child, two of sexual assault with a child under 13 by penetration, two of assault by penetration, two of sexual assault and two of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

After the sentencing, West Midlands Police said it had an “excellent” track record of bringing sex offenders to justice. The force urged anyone who had suffered abuse in the past to get in touch.

To report abuse call police on 101.
