London Lite Wednesday, 21 October 2009 11 Beatles Martin has op AN ANIMAL rights group has scrapped a poster which used the face of one of Baby Peters tor- turers, after he claimed it damaged his reputation. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) used a photo of Steven Barker, 33, in a billboard campaign, along with the words: People who are violent towards animals rarely s t o p t h e r e . B a r k e r h a d abused animals as a child. But lawyers acting for Barker, who was jailed for 12 years in May for causing or allowing the de at h o f h i s 17-month-old stepson Peter Connelly, claimed the poster was libellous. Tim Bittlestone, of solicitors Leslie Franks, wrote to PETA, saying: Mr Barker was acquitted of murder. Your campaign poster is therefore libel- lous. Please remove it or we will institute proceed- ings against you. T h e b i l l b o a r d i n Haringey, close to where Peter died in August 2007 after months of abuse, was taken down. PETA has rede- signed the poster to read: Steven Barker. Animal Abuser. Baby Abuser. Rapist. People Who Are Violent Towards Animals Rarely S t o p T h e r e . Report Cruelty to Animals. Barkers older brother Jason Owen, 37, and Peters mother Tracey Connelly, 28, were jailed for three and five years respectively in May. In a separate case, Barker was given a life sentence for raping a two- year-old girl. PASSERS-BY, including children, look in horror as a body dumped in a shopping trolley is left in the streets of Rio de Janeiro. The male victim is thought to have been killed in battles between rival drug gangs which claimed more than 20 lives last weekend. Brazils government has vowed to clean up Rios notorious slums before the city hosts the 2016 Olympics, in reaction to fears that it would be unable to guarantee the safety of competitors and visitors to both the Games and the 2014 football World Cup. President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said: Well do anything it takes and make all necessary sacrifices so we can clean up the mess these people are imposing on Brazil. But it will take time to resolve the problems. THE BEATLES producer Sir George Martin is recovering in hospital after undergoing a routine operation to fix his pacemaker.
