What is the difference between Bishop Burton College in Beverley, Yorks, and the Taliban?
A young woman was suspended from college after accusing fellow students of rape and sexual assault, a court heard.
Three men have gone on trial at Hull Crown Court accused of abusing the woman on campus at Bishop Burton College.
The alleged victim, who is in her late teens, gave evidence to say she was told to leave the college after reporting the men to staff.
Bishop “Taliban” Burton College.
The woman told the jury her parents persuaded her to report it to the police after she received a letter from the college recommending she be excluded.
“I told the college I had been sexually assaulted but I didn’t give the details of what had happened, I just gave them an outline,” she said.
“The college said I had brought it into disrepute by having sexual actions with a group of people.
“A couple of days later they recommended that I was excluded.
“I was upset about it and my mum persuaded me to go to the police.”
The court heard a senior member of staff at the college interviewed the alleged victim and sent her a letter which read: “I’m writing to confirm you have received a recommendation for exclusion from the college for bringing the college into disrepute by demeaning sexual actions with a group of people.”
It’s because she couldn’t find four male witnesses to the assault, I suppose.
