Len­non ‘over­whelmed’ by sup­port

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Labour MSP Mon­ica Len­non said she was over­whelmed by sup­port from politi­cians af­ter re­veal­ing she was sex­u­ally as­saulted by a se­nior male col­league.

She told the Sun­day Mail last week how she was groped at a so­cial event four years ago in front of peo­ple.

A friend said: “Mon­ica is touched by the level of sup­port she has re­ceived from politi­cians, in­clud­ing the First Min­is­ter, who spoke to her per­son­ally.”

Len­non said she made an ini­tial com­plaint to the Scot­tish Labour Party but de­cided not to progress with it be­cause she felt she would not be be­lieved.

She said she had cho­sen to go pub­lic about the at­tack be­cause she be­lieves not enough was be­ing done by Labour or other par­ties to sup­port vic­tims.
