Description

Titre :

Man with disabilities born from incestuous rape has right to compensation, rules judge

Extrait de l'introduction :

A 29 year old man who was born with serious disabilities after an incestuous rape has won the right to criminal injuries compensation, in the first case of its kind in the United Kingdom.

The man, referred to as Y, has severe learning difficulties, developmental delay, a heart murmur, hearing and sight problems, lax joints, epilepsy, and no sense of danger. He was born as a result of his mother’s rape by her own father, who was later convicted of incest.

Y’s mother has already received compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, the state funded body that compensates victims of violent crime in England, Scotland, and Wales.
