Prince Andrew, Duke of York has vowed to do his part to combat sex trafficking and help its victims. As a result of his legal team’s use of abusive rhetoric against the victims, experts doubt any of them will want to be in the same room as him.
Former North West England Chief Prosecutor Nazif Afzal said that I’m a patron of nine organisations that help sex offenders’ victims. He should meet with victims in private to comprehend their pain and how victim-blaming of the sort he involved in will have affected them.
He has come to terms with the fact that Virginia Giuffre has suffered, both as a recognised victim and as a consequence of unfair public insults. However, he still maintains that these problems arise from his victim-blaming attitude toward her.
Rape and sexual offences have prosecuted at a rate of one percent in this country. When someone publicly criticises a victim, it erodes trust in the legal system. Victims may have deterred from coming forward as a result of this.
The fact that Ms Giuffre proposed the money from Prince Andrew donate to groups that promote victims’ rights speaks something about her character. That’s why Andrew is making a contribution is beyond my comprehension. He couldn’t go on like this. The only way he could avoid having more of his dirty laundry exposed was to pay with blood money.
