What is your take on this? Keep in mind that the above author does not believe the 200,000 figure but still 80,000 is a high number.

Yes a high number but very few have come forward since and admitted being raped in 71 ... If they do not come forward now why back in 71?

What then is your opinion on the 1972 inquiry which found 80,000 cases of rapes?

What do you think is the actual number range of rapes? And is there any supporting data like we have supporting data for only 56,000 casualties?
