The British newspaper, The Times, revealed the existence of lawsuits against two thousand British police officers for sexual abuse over the past four years.

These figures were revealed at a time when an investigation showed that sexual misconduct and police corruption were routinely covered up. about the outcome of cases from websites that the public can see.”

The newspaper added: "In nearly two-thirds of the cases, officers accused of sexual violence and abuse of their power to satisfy their personal desires did not face any further action."

Even when the police reveal the names of the dismissed officers for these crimes, they remove public notices identifying their misconduct within weeks.

The newspaper quoted former British Prime Minister Theresa May, who has tried to ensure greater transparency over the accusations against the police, that it is "disappointing that some police forces appear unprepared to face public scrutiny."

May noted that "the file of evidence compiled by The Times has left the impression that police are prioritizing the institution's reputation over justice."

Police are facing growing scrutiny over how they deal with sexual predators and other rogue officers following outrage sparked by the case of 48-year-old police officer Wayne Cousins ​​who abused his powers to kidnap, rape and burn 33-year-old Sarah Everard. last March.
