Denmark’s musical Jimmy Savile raped girl, 13main
Pressure is growing on Danish Radio (DR) to call an independent investigation into the last two conductors of its Girls Choir.
The latest testimony is that one of them, Tage Mortensen, raped an underage girl:
‘We’re out for an evening walk. Tage Mortensen puts his arm around my shoulders. That was not nice. He was an old man. Suddenly he pulls me into a ditch and starts tongue kissing me. To be completely honest, I do not remember what happened after that. I went like black…
‘I learned to stay away from him. I did not say anything to my mother because I knew she would be furious at him. That would not have any consequences for Tage Mortensen. I, in turn, would be taken out of the choir.
‘I liked to sing and I liked the togetherness between the girls. In addition, all the adults I knew were so proud of the girls’ choir. I would ruin that if I said anything.’
