Arte shows a series about a perfidious network that systematically attracts, abuses and smears British students from the lower class. It’s a true story. Ruby (Liv Hill) is perturbedly sucking her thumb as she waits to abort her child. She is only 13. Mentally retarded. Abused. Delivered from a ring of unscrupulous pimps to a family man in mid-30s. Not an isolated case – only one of about 1,000 victims. A TV reporter will later point out why the frightening abuse scandal is so sensitive: “All men are of Pakistani origin, while their victims are white without exception.” For many years, authorities ignore all evidence of raped girls from the underclass. After criminal charges, charges are dropped. This is reported by the BBC drama “Three Girls – Why does nobody believe us?” On Arte. Systematic sexual exploitation of young girls The three-part mini-series on Thursday (14 June) starting at 8.15 pm picks up on a true case from the UK. In the north of England, networks had formed over the years: places such as Telford, Oldham, Rochdale are synonymous with a culture of looking away. Between 2003 and 2012, there were recurrent systematic sexual exploitation of young girls. The news of the machinations of South Asian gangs was a stress test for the liberal immigration society. Shocked by the extent of the abuse cases Not the deeds are the focus of Philippa Lowthorpe’s award-winning staging. The camera turns away, showing pictures from a distance. It’s about the prehistory and the elusive handling of the authorities with the geeks. An investigator yawns at Holly (Molly Windsor) as she portrays her rape. Others turn victim and perpetrator roles: they throw the girls into a pot with prostitutes. Although they are children who fell in on decoys, were put under alcohol or drugs. Years later, a special commission wants to finally clean up the police and faces a pile of shards left by their colleagues. Holly’s dad throws the investigators out. “Guess who’s to blame for being so broken she can not get on her feet? You and her kind! » Social worker Sara Rowbotham (Maxine Peake) yells at the officials, “What do you think the girls have been doing in the meantime? Raped, beaten – you do not believe them. Raped, beaten – you do not believe them again! “Even Holly does not want to know anything about the police:” I told them everything. And again and again and again. And then they turn around and say I’m lying. ” When the investigators recognize the dimension of the abuse cases, it is a shock: “There are – hundreds.” A psychologist says helplessly: “Here are names, addresses, license plates. The same perpetrators are reported by different girls. Why on earth did not the criminal police have these files? “The bitter answer of the colleague:” Because they did not want them. ” Isolated, abused, passed on Only gradually are the media following the phenomenon of grooming, where pimps are creeping into the lives of girls, gaining their trust, then isolating and abusing them. According to The Times, 53 out of 56 convicts have Pakistani roots in cases of this kind, but for many observers one conclusion is that the Rochdale police failed because they “dreaded ethnic sensitivities,” quotes chief magistrate Sandy Guthrie (Jason Jughes) headlines: “If these men get bailed and we have nothing against them, then there are rioting.” After a long patient effort by a policewoman, one victim hesitantly reports the experience: “You’re being passed around like a ball,” says Ruby. “They’ll get your mobile number. And then you call about 50 people you do not know. You are in such an apartment and the men are in a circle. Then the white girl comes in the middle. And they send you away with one of them. When you’re back, the next one comes, and so on. ” At first, investigators find it difficult to call the young people from the margins of society to the witness stand. When finally the painful work-up begins in court, right-wing extremists have long since discovered the case for their agenda. «Nobody ever asked questions» The processing of the crimes and the many years of official failure in many cities continues to this day. One of the victims gave an interview to the BBC a few weeks ago: “In the end, I picked up the ‘after pill’ at the local hospital at least twice a week – nobody ever asked questions.» The three-part mini-series «Three Girls – Why does nobody believe us?» runs on Thursday, June 14, starting at 20:15 on Arte. With Swisscom TV Replay, you can watch the program up to seven days after the broadcast. The series highlights in June The cinema highlights in June Back to the homepage
