CICA V FIRST TIER TRIBUNAL AND JC  UKUT 77 The Applicant had made an application to the CICA under the 2001 Scheme in relation to an incident when her ex-husband forcibly penetrated her mouth with his penis. The CICA made an award of £3,300 (Level 7) for that part of her injury, because it fell under the category “indecent assault – severe – non penile penetrative and/or oral-genital act or acts” in the 2001 Scheme rather than rape. The Applicant appealed on the grounds that the Sexual Offences Act 2003 had extended the definition of rape to include oral penetration. Full report here.
