LTA President to step aside during sexual assault investigation

  LTA President to step aside during sexual assault investigation The president of the Lawn Tennis Association Martin Corrie is to temporarily step aside whilst an investigation is carried out into the manner in which a committee was on handled an allegation of sexual assault. LTA deputy president David Rawlinson will take over presidential duties for the time being. The investigation is in reference to a complaint of sexual assault made in 2004, when Corrie was serving on the committee that addressed the issue. An LTA statement said: “As soon as we received the complaint, we undertook a comprehensive internal review of the original 2004 case. We have also now commissioned a further independent investigation which is being carried out as swiftly as possible. The outcome of that investigation will be made public when it concludes.” Corrie also released a statement, saying: “This case concerns a coach who worked at Hertfordshire County LTA when I was a member of the executive committee, who was investigated and sanctioned by the LTA disciplinary committee at the time.” “As we are all aware, upholding the highest standards in dealing with safeguarding matters is important to the whole of British tennis. Therefore, in agreement with the board of the LTA, I believe it is right for me to step aside from my presidency during the course of this investigation.” “I would not wish my presence in this significant public role to become a distraction from the very good work the LTA is currently doing in the safeguarding arena.

  Social media firms yet to make a single direct referral to UK counter-terror police The Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner urged companies to face up to their wider responsibilities.Speaking at a counter-terrorism event in London, he said: “Those extremists who utilise cyber space have proved highly influential and dangerous actors. They have successfully encouraged, directed, enabled and promoted terrorist attacks with the click of a mouse or the tap of a screen. The online extremists seem able to act with impunity, occupying spaces owned and managed by legitimate and very wealthy corporations.

Albin Ifsich told the New York Times that Levine, now 74, began abusing him in 1968 when he was 20 years old and continued for several years.

Levine had routinely denied the allegations.

“As understandably troubling as the accusations noted in recent press accounts are, they are unfounded,” he said in a statement to the Times. “As anyone who truly knows me will attest, I have not lived my life as an oppressor or an aggressor.”

The opera suspended Levine in December after the men began coming forward. An internal investigation included interviews with more than 70 people.

“In light of these findings, the Met concludes that it would be inappropriate and impossible for Mr. Levine to continue to work at the Met,” the company said.
