A mother has lost £62,000 damages for being raped by a preacher after a church won a legal battle in the Supreme Court.

The worshipper was attacked by Jehovah’s Witness elder Mark Sewell, near Cardiff more than 30 years ago.

Devastated, the victim told leaders of the church about the horrific incident – but an internal inquiry found her allegations ‘not proven.’

The Jehovah’s Witness organisation has now won a Supreme Court appeal after a High Court judge ruled that a rape victim should get damages.

But Supreme Court justices on Wednesday ruled against her and concluded that the ‘Jehovah’s Witness organisation’ was not ‘vicariously liable’.
