Met Officers Pressure Victim To Drop Case

The police watchdog says officers from a Met Police sex crime unit pressured a woman to drop a rape claim against a man who went on to murder his two children.

Jean Say killed his son and daughter two years ago when they went to stay with him for a weekend.

The earlier rape allegation against him was dismissed by a detective sergeant based in the Sapphire unit at Southwark, who said the circumstances did not constitute rape because the woman "consented".

A report by the Independent Police Complaints Commission says: "There is no doubt from the evidence that the woman made an allegation of rape at Walworth police station which should have been believed and thoroughly investigated."
