'I knew they would stone me to death or sell me': British sex slave held captive and raped nightly for 13 years reveals she finally escaped when they planned to take her to Pakistan 

  • 'Anna Ruston' penned tragic story of 13 years of abuse from taxi driver 'Malik'
  • He abducted her at 15 because he knew no-one would miss the homeless teen
  • 'Raped her, prostituted her to other men and she had four babies that he sold'
  • Authorities 'were afraid to help her for fear of being seen as discriminatory'

A British sex slave has told how she was abducted aged just 15 by an Asian taxi driver and endured 13 years of horrific abuse while locked up in his home.

Anna Ruston claims that her captor branded her his 'white s***' and repeatedly raped her, before prostituting her out to other men and 'selling' the four babies she gave birth to during her ordeal.

She was forced to go to the toilet in a can in the corner of the room, and is still haunted by the smell of garlic, which reminds her of her captor.

Authorities have come in for criticism today after it emerged the woman was taken to hospital with injuries on a number of occasions, but was never left alone with doctors or nurses.

She eventually escaped after being told the family were taking her to Pakistan, where she feared she would be 'stoned to death' or sold.

The girl had originally lived with her great-grandmother but, after the elderly woman died, she moved in with her abusive stepfather, from whose care she was later removed.

In April 1987, she met her captor - who she names only as 'Malik' - at a taxi rank in the Midlands. He was kind to her and took her to his house to 'meet his parents'.

But the taxi driver then refused to take her home again and she was violently raped, starting what became more than a decade of being trapped in his house.

Her fractured relationship with her own family meant that she was not reported missing. 

'I can still see that bedroom, the corner where I would rock in pain. Although after a while I stopped feeling pain, I think my body shut down,' she told The Daily Mirror

In her new book Secret Slave, which she was advised to write for her own therapy, she tells how she was locked in a room and raped almost every night for 13 years before she escaped.

She explained how she was thrilled when she first fell pregnant, writing: 'When you feel a baby move in your stomach you feel you have someone with you, you are not alone.'

Malik would stop beating her during pregnancy, but the hope of keeping a child quickly faded when he took her first son away. Three more children were also taken away from her and given to other couples, she says for money.

Ms Ruston, now 44, also said she feels 'let down' by the authorities after she was repeatedly taken to hospital with nasty injuries.

She told Radio 4's Today Programme: 'There were always three or four people with me, so I couldn't see an escape. I never answered the doctors I just nodded or shook my head.

'I just wish that if someone had left the room then I could have said to the doctor: "Look, I need help, I'm being held, I need to get out", but they never left the room. If I went to the toilet then they were outside the door.'

She has also told of her belief that people were afraid to help her for fear of being accused of discrimination.  

Anna said: 'Malik dressed me in his culture’s clothes, dyed my hair black, made me wear a scarf and keep my head down. When he spoke for me they thought it was a cultural thing. And I think people are scared to be accused of ­discrimination.'

She explained how she attempted to flee from the back door on one occasion, but was caught and badly beaten, making her too afraid to try and escape again.

But her determination to get away toughened when the family said they were going to take her to Pakistan.

She said: 'Towards the end when they said they were taking me to Pakistan I knew that it was either kill myself or get out because I knew that I wasn't going to go to a wedding and I knew that they would probably stone me to death or sell me.' 

She is now too scared to report her captor to the police, even though officers have told her another girl will come forward with similar allegations if she makes a statement.

Ms Ruston even tried to choke herself with a scarf but, at the height of her depression, it was a health visitor who came to see her because she weighed just six stone who saved her.

Slavery chief says 'alarm bells should have been ringing' 

The UK's Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner has branded the Ms Ruston's case 'alarming'.

He told the Today Programme: 'For somebody to go into a premises and see a young girl in a different nationality household with four young children that have been born, there should have been alarm bells ringing there.'

He said legislation now meant authorities had a legal responsibility to report suspicions and nurses are now being trained to spot the warning signs of slavery. 

The health visitor handed one back promising to wait outside and ring the house phone three times.

When she heard the phone, she ran for help and fortune was on her side as the key had unusually been left in the front door while the family were busy with prayers.

Since then, she has rebuilt her life with the childhood flame that she had dated when she was a teenager and thought of constantly during her captivity.

He was pleased to see her when they bumped into each other, but it took years for her to tell him the truth about what had really happened to her.

The couple now live together with her four children and she has been free for 16 years, but she will always wonder what happened to the four that were taken away from her. 

And worryingly, Ms Ruston, whose name has been altered for her safety, says it 'could be happening on any street' in the UK.'

As regards this and the other child abuse and pimping cases that are estimated to have involved around 1 million girls in the UK, we/society analyse this from various angles, but one aspect that rarely, if ever, comes up is that of the fact that historically, and currently in other areas of the world, is the aspect of "national psyche" called revenge and justice by the people as a whole. It is as though western/UK men have become castrated pet poodles if they do not even care about their girls and women - a touchy subject, but it needs to come into the public consciousness somehow.

I think its still there, but its been nullified by a different process.

Every social movement works by a group of 100 or 1000 or 100,000 people starting to think in the same way. But it needs a seed particle around which it can crystallise and become a strong unified whole, acting as a group.
That seed particle is the person we commonly call a leader, and there arent that many people who are suitable and willing to become it. So this is where the bastard Alinsky comes in. If you quickly destroy the first leader, then the 2 or 3 that follow, you take away the starting point around which the whole movement can unify. You dont have to destroy all the people in the new mass movement; you only have to take out its leaders.

The fascist left has successfully done this since the days of Salman Rushdie and even Enoch Powell, misleading and deceiving, but not caring about what is true, or even some of the victims, as long as it destroys their enemy. This is pure Alinsky. . The popular rebellion is there, but just like the super saturated solution, its unable to get started. I believe its for this reason that historically, when the pushback comes, it tends to be an over-reaction. Thats because there are years or even decades of pent up frustration that is waiting to be released.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
