Pakistani Muslim men arrested in child sexual exploitation investigation in Manchester.

Greater Manchester Police have announced the arrest of 21 Muslim men aged 18 to 58 as part of an ongoing investigation into child sexual exploitation (CSE).

Officers from the police force’s Bolton division arrested five Muslim men in Bolton, Bury, and Chorley on suspicion of engaging in sexual activity with a female child on October 15th.

This follows the arrest of eight Muslim men “on suspicion of offences ranging from rape of a female child and engaging in sexual activity with a female child” on October 6th, according to an official Greater Manchester Police statement, with another eight Muslim men having been arrested prior to that as part of an investigation first launched in 2018.

The arrested men have all been released on bail, with some conditions, as the investigation continues, while their 11 alleged victims are “continuing to be supported by GMP and partner agencies”.

“The action we have taken in the last few weeks has been a significant step in our operation into child sexual exploitation in Bolton and I can assure the public that our work does not stop until we bring each one of those responsible to justice,” commented Detective Inspector Dave Sinclair, of the Bolton Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Greater Manchester Police.

The arrests come as the Independent Inquiry Into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) in Britain has been accused of orchestrating a “cover-up” by some of the people who helped to expose the Muslim grooming gangs operating throughout the country in the first place, allegedly overlooking victims, whistleblowers, and abuse hotspots such as Rochdale and Rotherham and instead focusing on the testimony of many of the establishment institutions which failed victims previously.
