What are their Names? Unfortunately the old method of Naming and Shaming in public has disappeared in order to protect the victims.
........The 56-year-old, who has been compared to the notorious Austrian Josef Fritzl, was given 25 life sentences for the horrific catalogue of rapes and abuse he inflicted on his children..............
Authorities had numerous chances to intervene in the rape of two daughters by their father.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, impregnated his daughters 19 times, with seven children surviving. All of them have health problems related to genetic abnormalities.
The elder daughter became pregnant seven times and has two surviving children. Her sister had 12 pregnancies and has five surviving children. Two of the sisters' babies died the day they were born.
1988 - Teachers become suspicious when injuries are noticed on the face of one of the girls at school, but they are subsequently blamed on bullying. The other daughter stays away from school with a broken arm. During this time, and on several occasions over the next 14 years, doctors raise concerns with the sisters about abnormalities in the foetuses of their unborn children. One doctor tells a daughter not to have any more children with the same man and questioned the children's paternity. Any involvement with the father is disputed. DNA tests were not carried out.
Early 1990s The family move from South Yorkshire to live in small villages in Lincolnshire.
1997 The brother of the two women goes to police with "hearsay evidence" of incest. Police look into the claim but no further action is taken.
1998 One of the daughters phones ChildLine in an attempt to report the ongoing abuse. She asks for a guarantee that the sisters would be able to keep their children but hangs up when that cannot be given.
2004 The family move back to South Yorkshire, and while social services again become involved, the abuse is not detected.
June 2008 The case comes to the attention of authorities. The father is arrested.

Here lies a story demonstrating exactly why many countries should stop claiming they are role models of an advanced civilization. Their Behaviour, Attitudes and Depravity is straight out of biblical times and not reflective of any Lessons Learned and the 21st Century.
