This is a sad story. The UK press and court of public opinion dragged her. By the end of reading the articles, I honestly can’t tell if this guy is the most brazen of abusive and manipulative sociopaths, or if she really did make it up. But how terribly in any case was she treated in the press.
He is going after her legally for slander etc, which makes it seem like either he has great lawyers or a strong case. It seems like the legal system has let her down, or did it? It seems to me like smashing someone’s phone and stereo is classically abusive, but is their legal system so blind to the obvious? How did the first case fail?
In any case, I feel bad for the girl if it’s true and would be so angry to find out she had made it up. I hope Justice is served. I’m just conflicted and that sucks. I feel like I am letting down a fellow survivor even doubting the story.
