Appearing at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Wednesday, June 13, 79-year-old Tony Radagsham Parasram, of Wellesley Road, denied five charges of indecent assault.

Three of the charges relate to one boy aged between seven and 13 and another between seven and 10 on unknown dates between January 1, 1990 and January 1, 1998.

He also denied seven separate counts of cruelty to a person under the age of 16 regarding the same two boys in the same time-frame.

He was joined in the dock by his wife Rajpati Parasram, 73, and sons Clyde Mahindra Parasram, 46, and Adrian Navindra Parasram, 45, all of Wellesley Road; as well as son Anthony Ravi Parasaram, 45, who lives in Balfour Road, Ilford.

All four face multiple charges of cruelty to a person under the age of 16 in relation to the same two alleged victims on unknown dates between January 1, 1990 and January 1, 1998.

Rajpati faces five charges as does Adrian Parasram.

Anthony Parasram faces four charges and Clyde Parasram three.

All charges were denied.

During a first hearing in Barking Magistrates’ Court on May 10, the defendants applied for a High Court injunction banning all mention that the five defendants are involved in criminal proceedings on “human rights grounds”.

The application was withdrawn the following day.

On Monday, defence barrister Matthew McNiff again requested that reporting be postponed for 28 days.

Judge Patricia Lees denied the defence’s application for reporting restrictions today (June 13).

“In my judgement there is no material that would prevent the publication of defendants’ names,” she said.

She added: “Open justice requires reporting of this case as set out in the standard order.

“The standard order will apply and will meet the needs of this case as well as any additional cases.”

The defendants have been granted unconditional bail.

A six-week trial is set to take place at Snaresbrook from January 14, 2019.
