Gang threatened to "slit victim's throat", Old Bailey told
A YOUNG teen was driven to the woods at night and told she would have her throat cut after she lied to avoid being raped, the Old Bailey has heard this morning.
The jury also heard the witness drew pictures when she was about 13 of her being shackled and "ripped apart".
Known as Girl 1 as she cannot be named, the witness, now in her 20s, claims she was raped, trafficked and sold for sex by Kamar Jamil, and brothers Akhtar and Anjum Dogar between the ages of 12 and 15.
She said she was taken to "foul" properties and made to have sex with up to 10 men.
And she said she was bitten and grabbed by the throat if she refused.
The court heard the girl, who was given drink and drugs, missed her 15th birthday because of the abuse.
She said: "I was so wasted I didn't even know it was my 15th birthday until the day later."
She was once driven to Shotover Woods because she lied she was on her period to avoid having sex, the jury heard.
Once there the men said: "Do you know what we do with pigs? We slit their throats."
She begged for her life but the gang told her to perform a sex act on them all or they would cut her head off, she said.
She said: "They were all laughing at me but still being horrible at the same time.
"It was awful. I was terrified."
Another four men arrived and she had to do the same thing, she said.
The jury heard the girl vomited before the men left her in "the pitch black".
But she said: "It just got to the point where I didn't know what to do, so I rang them and said can you come and get me?"
The jury was also shown drawings the witness had done when she was about 13.
She said: "I am trying portray feeling like I have been ripped apart."
The witness said the men would take her to the Nanford Guest House where they would pay a man.
She said: "I think they were just paying him to run a blind eye."
The court also heard the gang would be angry if Girl 1 refused sex.
She said: "I believe it was because I had lost them business."
She said the men would say she had wasted their time and money.
But she said she would usually have sex, adding: "I was frightened they would hurt me badly or kill me."
The young woman said the gang would find it "funny" if she was not enjoying sex. She said they would carry on even if she was crying.
The woman said she was "confused" at the time, adding: "It wasn't a loving relationship. This was abuse. This was people taking advantage of a child."
Girl 1 said she introduced Girl 2 to the gang and she was abused too.
She said: "I do feel like I am responsible for that." The court heard the teenager once woke up in the John Radcliffe Hospital with alcohol poisoning.
And she told the jury she often had caught sex diseases.
But the witness said as she got older and "became a woman" the gang lost interest in her.
Nine men accused of involvement in a child sex exploitation ring deny all 79 charges.
The witness faces questions from defence barristers this afternoon.
