Calls pour in from Sinaga victims
POLICE have received “numerous” calls to a dedicated hotline in the week since Reynhard Sinaga was unmasked as Britain’s worst rapist.
Of those, an undisclosed number of calls have been taken from potential victims of the serial rapist.
A special incident room and phone line was set up last Monday at the same time as a court order banning reporting of the case was lifted. The phone line remained open until 9pm on Tuesday.
Anyone who thinks they may have been affected by
Sinaga’s crimes can pass information to police via the online Major
Portal or by calling 101.
The MIPP will also provide contact details for support agencies to anyone who accesses it. Anyone who wishes to seek support but does not want to talk to police can contact St Mary’s Sexual Assault Referral Centre on 0161 276 6515.
Survivors Manchester – a charity that works with male victims of rape and sexual assault – can also be contacted on 0161 236 2182.
The National Male Survivors Helpline can be contacted on 0808 800 5005.
Manchester student Sinaga, 36, was jailed for life last week and must serve a minimum of 30 years.
