R(AM) v FIRST-TIER TRIBUNAL  UKUT 333 The Claimant was assaulted in June 2010 in a park near the hospital in which he was then an in-patient on a psychiatric ward. He had been on 8-hour leave. He claimed criminal injuries compensation identifying his injuries as “facial cuts x 2; depreciation of mental health” and said that he had scars under both eyes. The Authority obtained a report from a specialist registrar in the emergency department at the hospital who stated that it had been recorded that the claimant had attended the department on the day of the injury, when he had not waited to be assessed, and on the following day and that he had suffered from bruising below both eyes that would heal without lasting scarring. Full report here.
R(MM) v FTT and CICA  UKUT 402 (AAC) The Applicant applied for criminal injuries compensation on 20 December 2011. He said that he had been raped in the summer of 1970 when he was aged 8. He did not know the name of the man, but he was a painter working on the houses where Mr M lived. The man called him into a shed to sort out some paint pots. He then shut the door, held Mr M by the stomach and head, and anally raped him. Full report here.
TG v FTT AND CICA  UKUT 366 The Applicant was raped by a man, who was a friend and with whom she had previously had consensual sexual intercourse. She attended hospital and was treated for vaginal bleeding, inability to pass urine, suspected fractured ribs, a black eye and anxiety. The police categorised the allegations as “No Crimed” because there was substantial evidence that the victim had made this report for some inappropriate purpose. The Applicant had always regarded the police investigation as “bungled”. Full report here.
