Kenya: Reparations: A case for settlement

Kenya: Reparations: A case for settlement | Anti-Abuse | Scoop.it

The Kenyan case
In June 2013 Her Majesty’s Government was required to pay 19.9 million pounds in compensation to some 5,000 elderly Kenyans who  were tortured and abused during the Mau Mau ( an English bastardised name for “ muingi” or “ muigwithania”  as  the movement) uprising in the 1950s. This case bears lessons for the Caribbean and it also has much to teach about the true nature of the British Empire.

Bedford father jailed for beating children and forcing them to read Koran as punishment

Bedford father jailed for beating children and forcing them to read Koran as punishment | Anti-Abuse | Scoop.it

'DOMINEERING and controlling' Bedford father was behind bars tonight (July 31) after being convicted of domestic violence against his wife and four of his six children. A jury at Luton Crown Court heard the 49-year-old man inflicted 'physical, psychological and emotional abuse' on his family. Prosecutor Beverley Cripps said: "The abuse occurred on a regular basis and became the norm at the home. It was carried out by a domineering and controlling man. "School was a refuge for the children. They were all exemplary students, but their childhood has been marred by continuous abuse. They have been hit by belts, shoes, large heavy cooking spoons and plates. "They have been tied to door handles, bound up and locked in their bedrooms." She alleged he spat on their food and made them eat it, made them read from the Koran as a punishment and would call his daughters 'fat bitches' and his sons 'bastards'. The man - who cannot be named because it would identify his victims - was told by Judge Barbara Mensah that he will be sentenced once probation reports have been carried out. She remanded him in custody saying a 'custodial sentence is inevitable.' The jury was told that social services had a number of concerns about the wife, aged 41, and six children, now aged between four and 21, in the past. They were always well turned out for school, but were never allowed new clothes and did not play with other children. In 2011, after the mother had been to the police, the father persuaded one of the children to compose numerous letters on the family computer saying she wished to withdraw the allegations. The woman is then said to have been forced to sign them. As a result proceedings were dropped, said Ms Cripps. It was in November last year after a row, when two of the children were running late for school, that the father is said to have threatened to move them. They then came forward and gave videoed interviews to the police. The father denied a total of 20 charges. The jury of six men and six women convicted him of causing actual bodily harm to his wife, doing acts intending to pervert the course of justice and intimidating her. He was also convicted of eight charges of cruelty to a person aged under 16. The jury was unable to reach verdicts on three charges of cruelty to a person under 16. He was cleared of one charge of causing actual bodily harm and five of cruelty. He is due to be sentenced on Friday 6 September.
