As regards to Nileson, however it's spelt, I can only go with waht this guy said on the radio yesterday. He asked for the porn, was told no. He then tried again, by going to court, and using the HRA, which was dismissed on day one. This would all be a matter of public record, and therefore he was probably being truthful about it.
The rapist? No idea about that, I don't recall seeing anything about it, but it has long been an abuse of process to delay proccedings. Long meaning, as far back as the end of the 70's to my knowladge, and therefore long before human rights legislation.
Don't get me wrong, I do believe that the act is abused by some. there are parts which do have a benifit to us all though. The sad thing is that the abuse makes the news, the benifit doesn't.
