Re Alleged Child Grooming In Rotherham
Dear Chief Superintendent Harwin
With the revelations in the Times newspaper Reported by Mr Andrew Norfolk regarding the alleged involvement of “Arshid Hussain” in the case of Child Grooming and Under Aged sex with a 14 year old girl in the care of Rotherham Borough Councils Social Services.
I as an Elected Member of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council have a duty to the Electorate of Rotherham to Represent them, now demand that South Yorkshire Police now have a duty to carry out a full investigation into this allegation to ascertain if the allegations are true and have substance.
If the allegations prove to have substance and be true bring criminal charges to the accused and any other person or persons who may have had knowledge or any involvement of this crime and failed to report it and covered it up in any way. Anyone found to have had a duty by profession or otherwise in not protecting this young girl or others in a similar position should be charged and prosecuted.
The silence by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough council, South Yorkshire police and the Police commissionaire in such cases as gone on too long and we now demand answers and action to rid our streets of such perpetrator’s so our children are being protected.
I now await your response to my demands as an Elected Representative of the Tax payers of Rotherham, to bringing these perpetrators to justice.
