Gang On Trial Over Teenage Sex Allegations

Recommended Posts

Four men and four teenage boys have gone on trial over child sex allegations involving girls from Peterborough. The gang, who are from Czech, Slovak and Kurdish backgrounds, are accused of abusing five girls aged between 12 and 13.

Two of the complainants, who all lived in Peterborough, are of Czech/Slovak origin, while the other three girls are English.

The case came to light when victim A was taken into care in December last year and began to tell her social worker what had been happening to her.

Zdeno Mirga, 18, his brother Dusan, 20, Hassan Abdulla, 32, David Ziga, 19, two 17-year-old boys and two 14-year-old boys variously face 57 counts of abuse. The charges include rape and child prostitution. The case continues at the Old Bailey.

A gang of four men and four teenage boys "organised and controlled" the sexual abuse of five girls aged between 12 and 13, a court has been told.

The case came to light when one of the alleged victims was taken into care and told her social worker she had been abused, jurors at the Old Bailey heard.

She and the other four complainants come from Peterborough.

The gang, who all lived at addresses in the city, deny a total of 57 counts of abuse, including rape.

Zdeno Mirga, 18, his brother Dusan, 20; Hassan Abdulla, 32; David Ziga, 19; two 17-year-old boys and two 14-year-old boys are on trial.

The alleged abuse happened between April and December last year.

'Shared around'

One of the girls, a 13-year-old known as "Victim A", said she was raped in a park in the town and made to have sex with several other men in the following months.

The court was told the girl had severe learning difficulties.

Some organised and controlled the sexual activity, some took a spur-of-the-moment decision to become involved”

Angela Rafferty Prosecutor

She described Zdeno Mirga, known as "Skinny", as the gang's boss, prosecutor Angela Rafferty said.

"He encouraged her, often very forcefully indeed, to give other boys and men... sex.

"He did this using the power he had over her at the time, or threatened her and sometimes he used violence against her.

"Skinny took her to parties where she was shared around sexually," Ms Rafferty added.

The girl told police that Zdeno Mirga "shared" her because he wanted money to buy cannabis and vodka, the court heard.

Ms Rafferty said some of the defendants were "more heavily involved than others".

"Some organised and controlled the sexual activity, some took a spur-of-the-moment decision to become involved," she said.

Jurors were warned they would hear "very graphic descriptions" of what allegedly happened to the girls, and they would have to put their emotions and sympathies to one side during the trial.

The case continues.

Four men and four teenage boys have gone on trial over child sex allegations.

The gang, who are from Czech, Slovak and Kurdish backgrounds, are accused of abusing five girls aged between 12 and 13.

Two of the complainants, who all lived in Peterborough, are of Czech/Slovak origin, while the other three girls are English.

The case came to light when victim A was taken into care in December last year and began to tell her social worker what had been happening to her.

Zdeno Mirga, 18, his brother Dusan, 20, Hassan Abdulla, 32, David Ziga,19, two 17-year-old boys and two 14-year-old boys variously face 57 counts of abuse. The charges include rape and child prostitution.

Prosecutor Angela Rafferty, opening the trial at the Old Bailey, said: “Between April 2012 and December of the same year in Peterborough these defendants engaged in sexual abuse of teenage girls.

“Some of them were more heavily involved than others. Some organised and controlled the sexual activity, some took a spur of the moment decision to become involved.”

The jury was told that victim A, who has learning difficulties, considered Zdeno Mirga - whom she referred to as Skinny - to be the “boss”.

Ms Rafferty said: “He encouraged her, often very forcefully indeed, to give other boys and men sex. He did this using the power he had over her at the time, or threatened her and sometimes he used violence against her.”

She went on: “Skinny took her to parties where she was shared around sexually. There were occasions when (she) was abused by multiple boys in the park, each taking turns with her.”

The complainant told police that Mirga “shared” her because he wanted money to buy cannabis and vodka, the court heard.

She said the defendant had “forceful sex” with her in the toilets in a park, and she was also abused on a park table, Ms Rafferty said.

The trial continues at the Old Bailey.
