Man convicted in ‘rape gang’ case
Jess McCabe // 12 September 2008
Lubomir Kora could be sentenced to up to 19 years in prison, for his part in raping a series of prostitutes in Bradford, reports the Telegraph & Argus. Arrest warrents have been issued for three other men allegedly part of the gang.
This is such a terrible case, but at least one of the men will end up behind bars:
In February and March this year there were a spate of incidents involving prostitutes who got into the vehicle after being picked up by one or two men.
The jury heard harrowing evidence of how some of the women were gang raped after Kora’s accomplices jumped out from their hiding place in the back of the vehicle.
One prostitute’s shocking ordeal was photographed by Kora using his mobile phone.
Jurors were shown more than 20 sexually-explicit pictures of the attack.
Kora claimed in court that the woman posed for one of the photographs.
What a shame that the newspaper chose this headline, then:
Vice girls’ ‘rape gang’ on the run
Why is the emphasis on the fact that the women raped by these men were prostitutes, and why are they described as “vice girls”?!
