Justice for Jon Moses, UK singer who was raped whilst working for Fred Olsen Cruises.

  • by: Anne R
  • recipient: Fred Olsen Cruise Lines
Petition summary by Care2:
"I was drugged... raped... beaten... neglected medically and denied the right to even have my clothes forensically examined!" - Jon Moses
 
British singer Jon Moses was working for Fred Olsen Cruises when he was violently raped in South Africa. When Jon got home, he spent three weeks in hospital and has since not been able to work due to the trauma sustained.

Shockingly, instead of providing medical and legal assistance, his employer refused to provide medical attention, failed to file a police report, Overwrote CCTV footage showing Jon bloody and bruised, even though he requested a copy of this the day of the rape and the following days afterward from senior management. They then cancelled his future work contracts, with NO PAYMENT!! They recklessly put him on a 12hr plane trip home despite Jon suffering a head injury that was later confirmed by a CAT scan in the UK. They gave him Diazapam, they even "lost" the blood covered shirt he was wearing when assaulted, Jon had offered to "get it for them" in a seinior management meeting !!!
 
The actions of Fred Olsen Cruises equate to perverting the course of justice.
 
Sign now to demand Fred Olsen Cruises pay significant compensation to Jon Moses, in addition to paying him in full for all of the future contracts they cancelled with him.

MALE RAPE - REMOVE THE STIGMA - THE FACE OF A MALE RAPE VICTIM

WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN

  • Remove the stigma of male on male rape
  • Treat male on male rape victims the same as male on female rape victims
  • Provide more support for male on male rape victims
  • Easier access to Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) and the guidelines for its use
  • More literature and awareness concerning male on male rape
  • More facilities trained and equipped to handle male on male rape victims
  • Make companies legally and financially responsible for maintaining recorded evidence like CCTV recordings. Make them financially responsible for retrieval of lost recordings
  • Make it mandatory for all clothing be remanded to the authorities for processing whether the rape occurred on home soil or abroad

THE FACTS

  • Because of the stigma that is placed on male on male rape fewer than 1 in 10 are reported 
  • Data shows that male rape victims are more likely to receive injuries to non-genital areas -but are less likely to report if non life threatening
  • A higher proportion of male rape victims are blamed for their assault 
  • The suicide rate for male rape victims is 15 times higher than that of female rape victims
  • Though all rape victims require extensive emotional and psychological healing - Male victims have the added burden of a society that does not believe they were raped
  • In the UK alone the most recent statistics show that 78000 people have become rape or attempted rape victims. Out of those are 9000 men but due to the low reporting rate among males that number is expected to be much higher

MYTHS

* Males are less traumatized 

  • Fact - Males are just as traumatized by rape - in fact depression and hostility are more profound in male rape victims

Added stress and guilt: Male victims often fear being seen as gay or weak. They fear that their assault was due to being too effeminate.

JON MOSES' STORY

Fred Olsen Cruise Line denied Jon Moses his basic human rights to medical treatment. They diminished the severity of the assault and rape by not filing a police report. After the attack and rape they put Jon on a 12 hour flight back to the UK  then immediately canceled all future contracts for him aboard their cruise line without pay.  Jon deserves to be treated with respect and compassion. Fred Olsen has treated him with niether. #Justice4JonMoses

CALL TO ACTION

Fred Olsen Cruise Line must be held accountable for their actions against Jon Moses

  • They refused to provide adequate medical attention after his assault. Including PEP as he was covered in foreign blood
  • They didn't adequately record the event or file a police report...Although initially Jon was told that a male worker from the ship had reported an incident to the police ... A LIE ...Never happened, but in a statement of that man, confirmed by UK police, he said he did. He was later within hours of the Rape put on a flight home by Fred Olsen ... Who state; "He had nothing to do with Jon Moses's attack ... This was said by the Captain of the ship !!!!!
  • They left him with a head injury, covered in bruises and without physical or mental support
  • They recklessly put him on a 12-hour plane trip without medical release and with a head injury confirmed by CAT scan.
  • They canceled all future contracts without pay, and offered no furthermedical or psycological support in aftercare
  • The Dr on board had been informed he had been been raped, she said it would cause too much trouble to get the police involved and advised Jon fly home after discussion and sort it out in the UK. The Dr called another crew member in distress about the situation. Where is her report? Jon has been given hand written reports but nothing from the medical computer system.
  • They "Overwrote" the CCTV recordings that showed a bloody and bruised victim being led back onto the ship past two sets of security by a male worker just hours after the CCTV had been requested as evidence.
  • Fred Olsen informed Jon  that because the incident wasn't reported at the time that there is no security log ... and therefore this information does not exist in their information filing system
  • Fred Olsen "Lost" the blood-covered shirt that Jon was wearing when attacked. Although Jon had offered to get the shirt and give it to them as evidence.
