Newsline: Foreign Office told British rape victim to ‘carry on with holiday and enjoy it’

A British rape victim in Turkey was told to “carry on with her holiday and enjoy it” by a Foreign Office official, the public services watchdog has found. She received a message from the Vice Consul which said: “What you now have to do is to carry on with your holiday and enjoy it.” (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/04/29/british-rape-victim-told-carry-holiday-enjoy-foreign-office/) The young woman, known only as Ms B, was denied the opportunity to take legal action because she was given incorrect information by the Government department, according to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO).
