Rape Protected Witness Accuses Spain Goalkeeper David de Gea of Rape. Is This Law An Ass? DISCUSS PLEASE!

Once again, I come to ask myself this question, and I plead with you not to be a HEADLINE READER and kindly READ TO THE END.

What happens if a dear friend of mine accused of rape denies he knows knowledge of what he has been accused of?

 What happens if this story is just a stitch up?

Would those that claim “there is no fire without smoke” be able to look themselves in the mirror knowing fully well they had thrown stones at my innocent friend?

What would I be expected to say?

Would I keep quiet knowing fully well the girl in question is only getting back at my friend?

Now, to the most important question of all – WHY SHOULD THE GIRL’S IDENTITY BE KEPT A SECRET, while  the accused’s identity is battered in the public arena? Why? Why? Why?

How does the “innocent until proven guilty” rule work? Can someone with a legal understanding explain tp me how this law  works?

What happens if you are accused of rape?

What happens if I was accused of rape?  

I would have thought the law was designed to protect both the victim and the accused, but this doesn’t appear to be the case. From the beginning, it has been skewed in favour of the first person to report been raped. Is this law an ass?  For those who, for a second think I am on the side of the rapist have COMPLETELY missed the point. Don’t follow the mob reaction for a second and put yourself or family member in David De Gea’s shoes….and please don’t you ever suggest he should never have been caught in a position where he was accused. That is pure hogwash.

After justice has been served and the accused is found innocent, what becomes of his reputation? How would the press retract the accusation and repair the damage to both the accused and family?

Do you think it’s still fair for the accuser’s identity to remain a secret? I really don’t think so. Both victim and accused should both be scrutinised in secret or in public.- Jide Salu

Victim and the accused should both be either scrutinised in secret or in public.. What do you think?- Jide Salu

Spain and Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has denied a claim reported in a Spanish newspaper that he organised a sex party with prostitutes for teammates in which a woman was made to take part against her will.

“It’s all false,” de Gea said.

The claims are contained in court papers in a trial against a pornography baron seen by El Diario newspaper.

A witness claims the defendant forced her and another girl into sex with two Under-21 internationals in 2012.

“I am the first one to be surprised by this report. I deny it, it is false and nothing more, it is a lie and false,” de Gea told a press conference at Spain’s Euro 2016 training base.

“It is false what is coming out in the press and it will be in the hands of my lawyers,” he added.

The claims are part of a continuing case against pornographer Ignacio Allende Fernández, known as Torbe, who is accused of being the head of a prostitution network that abused Spanish and foreign women, some of them underage.

Torbe was remanded in custody in April charged with offences including sex attacks, sexual exploitation and child pornography.

The protected witness, who claims she was forced into the prostitution ring, said she was taken to a Madrid hotel and introduced to another girl and two footballers.
