Why are the UN such arseholes?

Grave concerns have been raised about the sexual abuse of children in detention in the UK by independent experts at the United Nations.

Reviewing the UK's record, the United Nations Committee Against Torture cited a report into the abuse of some 1,000 children in custody from 2009-2017. 

Few cases of such sexual abuse seem to have been investigated, the UN said.

The government said it would note the recommendations, adding that the UK had a tradition of protecting human rights.

Children in custody 'not safe from abuse'

The UN committee called on the UK to ensure all allegations of violence against children in detention were promptly and impartially investigated, adding that the information provided by the UK about the problem was insufficient.

It said historical claims of torture by security services in Northern Ireland must be addressed too.

The committee also called for the age of criminal responsibility, currently 10 in England and Wales and 12 in Scotland, to be raised.

It added that the UK must report back on the abuse of children in custody and on Northern Ireland within a year.

 

why this? Why now?  What about the grooming and rape of thousands of children, ignored for years by the authorities.  What about the abuse of those in the care system (often linked to the mass grooming gangs?  

 

Oh do fuck off
