Four Men Accused Of Gang Raping Sixteen Year Old Girl

From Mirror:
Four men accused of gang raping a teenage girl 'passed her around like an entertainment device', a court heard today.

The 16-year-old victim was so drunk she was filmed "rolling around on the floor" before the men 'penetrated every single orifice, while others watched, laughed and joined in themselves,' Canterbury Crown Court heard.

Takeaway workers Tamin Rahmani, 37, Shershah Muslimyar, 20 and Rafiullah Hamidy, 24, and a 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, all deny three counts of rape.

Prosecutor Simon Taylor accused the co-defendants of 'plotting' and 'lying' their way out of the evidence held against them.

He said: "Every single orifice had been penetrated by the group of men, while others watched, laughed and joined in themselves."

Mr Taylor said the girl had been drinking to excess, was walking the streets alone late at night, and the defendants took advantage of those features.

He added that she was so drunk she was filmed "rolling around on the floor" before the alleged attack.

It is alleged the rape took place in the early hours of Sunday, September 18, above 555 Pizza and Kebab, reports Kent Live .

The prosecution said all the four defendant's DNA was found at the scene of the rape in Hamidy's room.

Mr Taylor said the alleged victim decided to leave her group of friends and walk to her friend's house by herself, and was told by her friend on the phone to ask for directions to Cliftonville.

He told the court she was then taken to a room and raped on a "grubby mattress" whilst men physically restrained her and stood by the door "so she knew there was no escape."

Mr Taylor read out a statement from the girl, previously given as evidence, which said: "I'm not sure how many were in the room, I think there was about four or five of them. They were all like pushing me, like, to each other.

"One of the men pushed me onto the bed and was just laughing."

She added: "He pushed me onto a mattress, I think it had a duvet.

"I think there was one or two by the door and a few in the middle of the room.

"One was on top of me and one was beside me holding my shoulders.

"I don't remember much after that but one of them was having sex with me."

She said they were 'all swapping round' and she told them to stop 'but they carried on anyway.'

Prosecutor Simon Taylor added: "There was much laughter in that room where she was being subjected to the ordeal."

Questioning each of the defendant's accounts, Mr Taylor said Muslimyar only admitted he had sex with the girl after he was told his DNA was found.

When questioning him over his defence he had sex with the girl on the street after being so drunk he threw up, he said: "What is so magical about Mr Muslimyar's vomit breath that the victim would change her intentions of asking for directions and ask for sex?"

In relation Rahmani, he said the takeaway owner had lied about being in bed with his wife on the night of the rape.

When Rahmani was questioned about CCTV images showing him driving his car at the time, he claimed he had mistaken the day of the week and thought it was in "Afghan time".

Mr Taylor added: "If anybody should know when Saturday night turns into Sunday morning, it's the owner of a kebab shop."

He then questioned the 16-year-old youth's account, saying his voice had been heard in the room where Muslimyar's former girlfriend heard sex noises.

He added that the youth lied to his foster mother about where he was that night, and was later seen escorting the victim out of the premises.

In the case of the defendant Hamidy, who fled to Italy after the alleged attack, Prosecutor Simon Taylor said: "The proof is in the pudding, he left Kent and did not come back."

Mr Taylor said Hamidy was seen escorting the girl, along with the youth, into the room where she was allegedly raped.

He also said Hamidy's semen had been found on the victim in several places.

Glenn Harris, defence barrister for Muslimyar, said even though the 20-year-old had cheated on his girlfriend and had sex on the street with a stranger, he was not a rapist.

He added from CCTV images "it is clear the girl came onto my client" and said she was shown leaning into the defendant and later held his hand.

He said: "She literally jumped on him."

Rahmani of Northwood Road, Ramsgate, Muslimyar, of Hovenden Close, Canterbury, Hamidy, of no fixed abode, and the 16-year-old defendant deny the charges.

The jury is expected to consider its verdict later this week.

The trial continues.
