A 8-year-old girl found hanged at her home. The girl used to be locked in her "revolting and squalid" bedroom for 12 hours each night.

What an appalling crime!

Once again social services knew something about the vulnerability of this child.

Charlotte Moody was vulnerable and put on the 'at risks' register. Social services from Nottinghamshire County Council had visited the family's home in June 2009.
But when social workers tried to visit again in August 2009 (time when the neglect started) there was no one at home!

By 12th September 2009, Charlotte was found hanging from a cord tied to a window and then round her pink bunny soft toy...

RIP Charlotte.

A girl of seven was starved to death by her mother and stepfather. Khyra Ishaq's emaciated body was underweight her condition was out of the expertise of medical professionals, it was claimed.
The girl was kept prisoner by her mother and stepfather.
Khyra would be made to strip off and stand outside if she tried to raid the larder.

The mother also denies cruelty charges relating to five other children in her care which her partner has admitted.

The couple accused of starving Khyra to death have admitted her manslaughter.

The girl starved like 'a famine victim'. www.metro.co.uk

The girl and her siblings came to their neighbours' attention when they were seen eating the bread left outside for pigeons. This is the worst case of child neglect we heard of in the UK. That is so cruel.


Khyra, rest in peace.

The parents are living devils. The mother got a 15 years sentence. The stepfather, a former heavy cannabis user, got indefinite sentence.

It's been reported the parents would serve ONE small bowl of porridge that
their 5 children had to share amongst themselves.

As late Khyra was undernurished at school she was stealing her class mates' lunch boxes.

Social services officers didn't take seriously the neighbours' concerns about the 5 children seen on countless occasions eating stale and mouldy bread left outside to feed pigeons.

Besides that, social services officers didn't treat seriously revelations that the school headteacher made concerning several lunch boxes that late Khyra stole in the same year.

The final report points out that the social services officers missed those 2 opportunities. They were 2 indicators of child neglect.

What is damning it that although the 5 children were on the high risk register, social services let them down!!!

Two young brothers who tortured a 9 year-old and an 11-year-old boy were today sentenced to an indeterminate period in custody.

Sentencing them at Sheffield Crown Court, the judge told them they would serve a minimum of 5 years.

The judge had spent two days listening to harrowing accounts of how the 2 brothers, then aged 10 and 11, lured their victims to a secluded spot and subjected them to 90 minutes of violence and sexual humiliation in Edlington, South Yorkshire, in April 2009.

The victims were:
- strangled,
- hit with bricks,
- made to eat nettles,
- stripped and
- forced to sexually abuse each other.

But the Conservative leader David Cameron added:

?Are we just going to say this is an individual case?
That there aren?t any links to what is going wrong in our wider society, in terms of family breakdown, in terms of drug and alcohol abuse, in terms of violent videos, in terms of many of the things that were going wrong in that particular family?

?I think we should ask these questions:

-Do we have a problem in Britain with violent crime?
-Do we have a problem with some aspects of what's going on in childhood?
-Do we have a problem with our care system?


Answer: ''Yes, we do.?

Latest trial in the UK, 18 Dec 2009.

Mrs Hanim Goren, the mother of Tulay (the victim of the honour killing) has had death threats for breaking the silent code of her traditional Turkish family.

''Tulay did not simply vanish into thin air that day. If she were alive I know she would, without any doubt, have found a way of making contact with us''.

''My mother cannot think about anything apart from how different her life will be from now on''.

''Throughout her married life it was expected that she would behave as a loyal wife''.

''In taking this action, she has confronted and accused the men of our family''.

''No one should fail to realise what this means within our culture. These people do not forget''.

''For my father I have only one request. I ask that he finally disclose the whereabouts of my sister''.

''I ask that he put an end to the nightmares that haunt us and allow us to retrieve Tulay in order that she may rest in peace''.

''My mother and I have a message for women who feel they have no voice. Let them find the courage to come forward to the authorities''.

''Let them know that like us they will be listened to and taken seriously... and that as a result no more Tulays will fall victim to this primitive custom.''

Bravery of wife who spoke out Mrs Hanim Goren was convinced her husband had murdered their daughter Tulay in the name of 'honour'. But petrified of the violent and abusive Mehmet Goren, for years she dared not speak out.

''Even in court she screamed at him: ''Look at my face. What did you do to Tulay? Say it, say it!

''Now, with the end of the trial, there is only one thing Mrs Goren wants - to bury Tulay, whose body has never been found, next to her younger sister Hitace, who died in a car accident in 2006.

''I want the police to find a piece of Tulay's bones so I know, and so I can bury her,'' she said.

''Then I will know there is something there I can pray to.''

Mrs Goren finally got what she had waited ten years for -justice for her daughter. She had received death threats in the weeks before Goren's trial for breaking the silent code of her traditional Turkish family. But she bravely decided to make a stand.
