Not sure what’s going on at the court trial of the 4 Muslim paedos who took a 13 year old from East London to a house in Ipswich where they kept her as a sex slave. The 4 Islamo-nonces on trial have chose not to take the stand and give evidence in their own defence which personally i find a bit bizarre. If you was charged with the type of sick crime these men had, and you was genuinely innocent of what you have been accused with, then you would at least want to have the chance to put your side across and protest your innocence. Choosing to stay silent and not give evidence to the jury has Guilty wrote all over it. Only other reason not to would be if the defendants know there’s a chance of getting off with it due to a technicality and don’t want to incriminate themselves. This could be a possibility due to the fact that some charges have been dropped due to a ‘legal arguement’
