Supervisor told raped Muslim bus driver she was ‘westernised so wanted it’

A female Muslim bus driver who was raped by her colleague was told she was ‘westernised so wanted it’ after complaining to her boss, a tribunal has heard.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims she was raped on numerous occasions in March 2015 but when she finally told her supervisor, she was told to keep quiet.
