This case is still before the courts and it's possibly an isolated incident - but it follows the same MO, the same victim profile and same offender profile as the child abuse cases in the UK.Funny that the people who shout loudest about Catholic abuse are silent when it's Muslims, even though the problem is current rather than historic - and the scale of the abuse is on another level.
More than 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation were identified by local authorities in 2018-19, up from 3,300 five years before.Campaigners say the true figure is far higher and accused the government of failing to tackle child sexual exploitation, despite promises made after high-profile cases in Rotherham and Rochdale.Sajid Javid promised a review into the characteristics of grooming gangs in 2018, saying high-profile cases included a “high proportion of men of Pakistani heritage” and that “cultural reasons” could be at play.

Three men sexually assaulted two young girls – one aged 11 and the other 12 – after picking them up in a car and giving them alcohol and cannabis, a trial has heard. Noor Hason, 30, Rahamutullah Rahamutullah, 24, and Mohammed Nuramin, 22, are each accused of committing sexual offences at a Werribee property in early December 2018. The three men deny the allegations and have each pleaded not guilty to 14 charges.
The County Court heard on Tuesday that Mr Rahamutullah phoned one of the girls on December 2, 2018 and then drove to pick the pair up from Melbourne's northern suburbs, not far from the Department of Health and Human Services unit where the children were staying. The girls were given Jim Beam and beer and driven to Werribee, where they were taken to a shed behind a house and given cannabis to smoke, prosecutor Sarah Thomas told a jury in an opening address.
Ms Thomas said the three men each sexually abused both girls. One girl told Mr Hason she was only 11 and he replied, "That's OK," police allege. Mr Hason is accused of continuing to sexually assault the girl. The alleged victim said her friend was screaming when two of the men were on top of her.
Trial told the trio sexually assaulted two young girls – one aged 11 and the other 12 – after picking them up in a car and giving them alcohol and cannabis.
