Ceop’s report identified 2,083 victims and 2,379 offenders since the start of 2008.
The report showed that, in half of the cases, the race of the perpetrators had been excluded because of insufficient evidence. Of the remaining half, 38 per cent were 'unknown', 30 per cent were white, 28 per cent were Asian, 3 per cent black and 0.16 per cent Chinese.
Typically, the mainstream media have reported the most politically correct set of statistics listed in the report, which state that 38 per cent of offenders were white and 26 per cent Asian; however, those numbers only account for one of two ‘groups’ of offenders, and when both groups are combined, the totals are much closer: 30 per cent white and 28 per cent Asian, or 367 white offenders to 346 Asian.
After 'British' and 'unknown', the largest offender group listed by nationality is 'Pakistani', although the statistics are clearly lacking completion.
The report gives no religious breakdown of the offenders.
According to the 2001 census, Asians (excluding Chinese) make up 4.3 per cent of the population, whereas whites (including non-Britons) make up 92.1 per cent.
This means that, even with Ceop’s incomplete statistics, Asians who, judging by recent court cases, are almost exclusively if not exclusively Muslim are at least 21 times more likely to commit grooming offences than whites.
