The mother told Southwark Crown Court: "I have been personally offered money to go away. "I say to people that, even if I was offered a million pounds, we would not go away." When it was suggested she had negotiated a £250,000 fee for keeping her children out of court, the woman said: "No. It would be blood money for the children's suffering."
Student Philip Eli Cohen, 18, of Riverside Road, Stamford Hill, north-east London, denies one charge of buggery and 13 charges of indecently assaulting the woman's 12-year-old son, and four offences of indecently assaulting her six-year-old daughter. Community police liaison officer Jonathan Rosenthal, 40, also of Riverside Road, denies three charges of indecently assaulting the girl and one similar offence against the boy. The alleged assaults began in 1986, when the boy was seven and the girl one-and-a-half.
The court has been told Rosenthal comes from a famous Jewish family and that his father was a highly esteemed scholar and headmaster. Rosenthal is the member of the community who liases with the police whenever an Orthodox Jew is in trouble.
The mother told the court she had been "excommunicated" by other orthodox Jews and alleged a rabbi had told one of her brothers to lie in court to protect Rosenthal. She described Rosenthal as a "dangerous paedophile who nearly murdered little babies" and accused him of torturing and almost drowning her daughter. Barrister Jonathan Goldberg, defending Rosenthal, accused the mother of telling a pack of lies. He put it to her that she was hated by her community and had been guilty of hysterical exaggeration throughout her life. The trial was adjourned until tomorrow.
