He had contacted the Daily Telegraph to publish a press release and also wrote and article in The Guardian authored by himself stating that what the DPP had said was wrong and that the evidence in the case against his daughter was based on "rape myths".
This was meant to be a day if vindication for me, the day when the news was focused on the DPP's statement. But no. Mr de Freitas stole that moment from me.
He was saying his daughter was victim and that I was guilty, all over again.
It was an ambush designed to confuse the public.
Once again I was under attack.
But this time I was going to take legal action. This time I was going to sue him for libel.
I had been amazingly patient over the last 5 weeks, but this was the final straw. There are only a certain amount of times that one can put up with being accused of being a rapist and this was the 7th time he had done so.
I called up my lawyer. We were going to take de Freitas to court.
