Malaga mother says her disabled son was threatened to stop him reporting sexual assault

  • The school put the case in the hands of the police and the inquiry is ongoing

Malaga's juvenile prosecution department is investigating the case of a 14-year-old boy with an intellectual disability who was allegedly raped by a classmate and the latter's 11-year-old brother last October. The events came to light when teachers intervened in an argument in the school playground, where the older brother threatened the alleged victim to persuade him to blame another boy, a friend who had witnessed the assault. The friend, however, confirmed the version of the victim. The school put the case in the hands of the police and the inquiry is ongoing.

The case has emerged just days after reports of the alleged rape of a nine-year-old boy in the province of Jaén. The prosecution service has shelved the investigation as the alleged perpetrators are under the age of 14 and cannot be prosecuted.
