Bullfinch Day 7: Alleged victim tells court she was treated "like a piece of meat"
AN ALLEGED child sex exploitation victim told police in 2006 she was being raped and wanted it to stop.
A jury at The Old Bailey this morning watched a recording of a 15-year-old girl giving a police interview more six years ago.
Now in her 20s, and known as Girl 1 because she cannot be named, she has begun to give evidence at the trial of nine men accused of raping and selling underage girls for sex in Oxford.
She came to police in September 2006 claiming Akhtar Dogar had raped her. She had just turned 15.
She told an officer: "I have known him for quite a long time. Ever since I've known him he has been making me do things I don't want to do."
She added: "I don't think anyone else should have to live like that."
The jury heard the girl had tried to take a taxi back to her children's home but when the home manager refused to pay the fare the driver took her back to Oxford where she was abused.
She told the police: "It's the children's home's fault that I accidentally went back to Oxford."
Girl 1 said she was made to perform sex acts on Akhtar Dogar and a friend while they sat on a South Park bench.
She said: "I didn't want to do it. They were being relentless. They kept going on and on, saying if I didn't they will make stuff up to people.
"They messed things up to me and kept saying horrible things to me, really degrading things that made me feel like a piece of dirt.
"In the end I gave up and thought it would be easier if I just did it. To shut them up.
"I couldn't really say no because he wouldn't take no for an answer."
Later Akhtar told her to have sex with him and hurt her hand when she refused, she said.
She told the police: "I am just sick of him and letting all his mates constantly taking advantage of me and treating me like a piece of meat they can tread all over.
"I have heard they have been doing it to other girls too. I have seen other girls in their school uniforms.
"They don't care how old you are."
She added: "I think it's time they learnt their lesson. They can't treat people like that. They can't force people to do things they don't want to do all the time."
When asked what she felt like when she had sex with Akhtar, she said: "I just hated myself. I felt proper dirty and disgusted myself.
"I was like why am I doing this? And why is he doing it as he knows how old I am?"
She added: "I am used to it happening to me. It's been happening for so long. I am sick of it now."
