Javed Khan to tackle Rotherham child abuse

Javed Khan, chief executive of Barnardo’s, said: “We are intent on tackling this horrendous crime and supporting victims as they try to rebuild their shattered lives.”

Barnados’s has received £3.1m to tackle child sex abuse in Rotherham and to help rebuild the lives of victims.

Javed Khan was previously chief exec of Victim support

In 2014 the head of Victim Support, the Government-backed charity for people affected by crime, was accused of taking an armed gang to settle a long-running land dispute in his native Pakistan.

Javed Khan is reported to have arrived in the village of Haveli Bagal last week with about eight men armed with automatic rifles.

The events threaten to embarrass Victim Support, which receives £38 million a year from the Government.

With a reduced budget he’ll have to make do with less ordnance?
