  • Sexual Abuse

    Whilst collecting my toddler child I walked into a sitting room where my younger cousin and his friends were with their scout leader. I witnessed the scout leader touching one of the boys inappropriately.
    The scout group wore kilts and the leader had my cousin’s friend on his lap and had his hand underneath the boy’s kilt. He did not stop when I entered the room and I collected my toddler and left my aunt’s house who was not at home.
    I told my mother who told my aunt who said that it was nothing that I was mistaken and that neighbours had said they’d seen things take place whilst my younger cousin was in the scout leaders car but that she believed they too were mistaken. Clearly, she was in denial and wanted to believe her son’s denials who was a young boy.
