“I was falsely accused of rape and went through hell. While the police had the evidence that exonerated me in their hands all the time”
A 22-year-old British student wants to sue London police now that he has been acquitted of raping a young woman in 2015. Liam Allan himself always maintained his innocence, but for two years he lived with judgmental looks and a 12-year prison sentence hanging over his head. While the Metropolitan Police (MET) simply held the evidence that exonerated him.
Allan’s nightmare began in September 2015, when the ‘victim’ went to the police. “It started with a little lie and it got totally out of hand. It became a story that she had to stick to in the long run. She lost all control,” he told the Mail on Sunday newspaper. Allan was arrested and then released on bail.
When he called the London police at the end of February to find out about the case, he was told it was a weak file. “I had not yet been charged and the inspector in question – Mark Azariah – told me that he had forwarded everything to the public prosecutor. Without saying exactly what he had written, he said he had advised against prosecuting me.” (read more below)
But a few hours later, while returning from a lecture at the University of Greenwich, the psychology student was told he had been charged with sexual assault and six counts of rape. “I can’t put into words how that feels,” the young man says. “It’s something that happens to famous people sometimes, but you can’t imagine that something like that would happen to you.”
Last week, however, the case suddenly collapsed like a house of cards when it was revealed that the police had not passed on crucial evidence to the prosecution and the defence. The MET had gone through tens of thousands of messages on the phone of the ‘victim’ and labelled them “too personal” for the court. It was only when prosecutor Jerry Hayes demanded to see them and also passed them on to the defence that the true facts of the case came to light. After all, the reports revealed that the sex had been consensual. (read more below)
“It wasn’t that it was against my will or anything like that,” reads a verbatim message of 3 September 2015 that the woman sent to a friend. That was before she went to the police. Other messages showed her fantasising about bondage and rape and asking for more sex after the ‘rape’. “Sometimes sex is the top priority. I’m not kidding, I always think with my ****, lol.” and “You know, it’s always nice to be assaulted without breaking the law in the process.”
Allan now plans to sue the London police and the Crown Prosecution Service. “I want an apology, I’ve lost two years of my life,” he says. “There has been no direct contact with me yet and that is disappointing. I even want to help prevent a repeat of such acts.”
Meanwhile, more and more voices are calling for an independent investigation into the scandal. The MET says it has already started an internal investigation. The Public Prosecutor’s Office officially announced that it would not be prosecuting Allan “due to a lack of evidence”. (read more below)
Allan also pleads for the anonymity of suspects of sexual offences to be guaranteed, as long as they have not been convicted or unless a judge decides otherwise. “I should never have been named. It has destroyed my life and it is still not over,” he says.
Despite what she did to him, he has no intention of revealing the identity of the woman who put him through hell. “She too needs to get justice. I know what it is like when you are denied it.”
