The War on Women

Outrage after solicitor suggests woman indecently assaulted in swimming baths would've 'forgotten all about it in 2 or 3 days'
Excerpt: A DEFENCE solicitor caused a courtroom storm after suggesting a woman who was indecently assaulted in a swimming baths would have “forgotten all about it in two or three days.” The chairman of the Blackburn magistrates told Raj Chopra the comment was “shocking” and “offensive” and the prosecutor said it was a shame the victim was not present in court to respond to the suggestion. Mr Chopra’s comment came as he was defending Mohammed Akhtar, 50, who had touched the woman on the buttock and thigh as she climbed down the ladder into the pool at Mercer Hall, Great Harwood.
