Child abuse victim still waiting for £59,500 compensation

Click Title For Full Article:
A CHILDREN’S home abuse victim has told how her on-going battle for compensation is prolonging her suffering.
The 44-year-old was only 14 when she was raped by Coventry children’s home boss, Kevin Donaldson, who is serving a 15-year jail term for sex offences.
As the Telegraph revealed last week, Coventry City Council lost its appeal against its liability for Donaldson’s actions at London’s Civil Appeal Court.
At the hearing, Lord Justice Sullivan ruled the council would have to pay the victim damages but the authority could still appeal against the final amount. A hearing regarding the final figure is due to take place in July - which will be the SEVENTH time the woman’s case has been to court.
