Rape victim seeks Government compensation
A 45-year-old woman, who was among several girls raped or indecently assaulted by a social worker 30 years ago is to seek compensation from the Government over its handling of the case.
She had alerted staff at the Girls’ Home in Elliot St, Dunedin, that she had been sexually abused by Edward Anand in 1986, and claims the authorities effectively allowed him to continue offending.
“They had an opportunity to resolve this back in 1986, but chose to sweep it under the carpet,” the victim said.
“I’m 99 per cent sure there are other victims out there. I don’t think it’s fair.”
“Two women who were abused by Anand received $25,000 compensation each from the Ministry of Social Development several years ago,” according to a report.
