'Victims of sex abuse in Catholic children's homes set to win damages: 'Vulnerable' claimant showed 'incredible endurance' in pursuing group's case for 21 years to its conclusion at the high court' by Jamie Doward of The Observer, Sunday 9 May 2010

One of the longest-running legal cases in UK history ... is poised to end after a judge found in favour of two men who claimed they had been sexually assaulted ... while in the care of the Nugent Care Society, formerly Catholic Social Services, in Liverpool. It also cast doubt on the testimony by two former staff members at the homes who had denied the men's claims.

The allegations centred on sexual abuse between 1968 and 1982 ... Some of the claimants have settled and some have since died, while others killed themselves.

"The defendants have indicated they are going to settle this group action, which has been going on for 13 years," said Paul Durkin, a solicitor with Abney Garsden McDonald ... the defendants had engaged in "attitritional litigation" and had fought tooth and nail to deny the men's claims. "They threw much money at their defence," said Durkin, who acknowledged that the case could offer guidance to other sexual abuse victims.

The two men received £12,000 and £45,000 respectively in damages, plus interest, but Durkin said the action was not about money. "It was about their need for someone to recognise that as children they were wronged," he said.

Legal wranglings over whether the men could bring their claims more than 21 years after the abuse complicated proceedings.

The same Sister Jayanti Kirpalani as above, Brahma Kumaris representative to the United Nations in Geneva, on behalf of the Western is seen to sign up as the BKWSU takes a position on Child Marriage in front of the United Nations ... but bizarrely in India they still marry off bus loads of teenage girls to the deceased spirit of their millionaire businessman founder in mass ceremonies at the headquarters.

The BK surrender ceremony is is held in as much importance as the Indian marriage ceremony and designed to replace it. Families attend, vows are publicly made usually en masse, a dowry is paid (to stop the poor dumping their unwanted girls on the BKWSU they say), and then the girl is usually moved to a BK service centre far from her real family. She has married the organisation.

Child marriage applies to both females and males under age 18, at what age does the BKWSU allow girls to marry their Baba?

The BKWSU says it unequivocally supports gender equality and opposes the practice of child marriage.

Dadi Janki says, Janki was also party to the cover up.
... the Supreme Soul is not just our mother and Father, but all our relationships are with Him. A marriage is for the benefit of one family, but this surrender ceremony is for the benefit of the world and for making human life into a divine life through which humanity can be shown the path of truth.

BKism the "the path of truth"?
