    Zero tolerance for rape whether the victim is a native or a foreigner. Rape is such an egregious crime that the penalty should be life imprisonment. We have to send a very strong message to those rapists and those with such intentions. Let’s protect our daughters, sisters, aunts and mothers from these sexual predators.

    It would be interesting to find out whether the suspect is a first time sexual offender. Our law protects the identities of sexual offenders but this should be amended to release the names of repeat sexual offenders in the public interest. Because of our present legal framework it is possible the convicted serial rapists are given anonymity which gives them free reign to pounce on other women. I am sure that the British press will pick up on the fact that our laws presently protect sexual offenders.

    I find the use of the word “allegedly” over cautious.She has been raped or not. If the police arrested a suspect there is something that happened. Without presuming on any guilt this way of presenting the event puts a doubt on what the woman suffered. The use of “allegedly” is certainly not prevalent in headlines concerning theft, murders and such criminal actions.

      MR: the terms ‘Suspect’ or allegedly’ , are terms that indicate that the person accused has not been tried in court and, in law everyone is deemed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law. Now although I understand the rage it gives people to know that a man can defile a female in that way to fulfill his selfish sexual desires. We must regard an accuse as a human bean until the cours prove his guilt. Having said that I think these behavior is utterly unacceptable.

    Michel – Everything in a criminal matter is alleged until proven in a court of law. But with STRONG or SUFFICIENT evidence it does prevent the police from proceeding under the ambit of ‘alleged’. Just how the law works.

    All the foolishness. It is crazy if the system provides for a matter to be alleged until proven in a court of law especially where there is obvious proof such as an act done in public or clearly exposed on camera.The craziness of the system is that even where there is obvious proof, the use of allegedly allows for a person who has clearly done the act to be pronounced innocent erroneously or on some technicality.

    God help us!!!
