We have been investigating the sexual exploitation of Somali women, who’ve been filmed while being assaulted and then blackmailed and shamed online.
He’s uncovered a shocking practice where abuse videos are shared and even sold – and victims’ lives are destroyed.
Some of the recordings end up on private message groups with tens of thousands of members.
This is the story of three women who became victims of this monetised abuse.
Warning – their testimony is distressing and contains descriptions of sexual assault.
