Horrific 'sexual predator' jailed for only four years

Horrific 'sexual predator' jailed for only four years | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

A sexual predator who lured two teenage girls back to his Rochdale flat and raped one of them was jailed for four and half years today.

Babar Ali, also known as Zakir Mir, 43, of Rathbone Street, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing at Minshull Street Crown Court to raping the 16-year-old girl.

The man plied the girls with alcohol after enticing them back to his home from a night out in Oldham town centre, he then forced one into the bedroom where he subjected her to a vicious sexual attack.

Detective Constable Michael Berger, of Rochdale CID, said: "This young victim was subjected to horrific and prolonged ordeal at the hands of Ali.

"The victim and her friend were persuaded to come to the flat, but once there, Ali demonstrated truly predatory behaviour.

"The victim was quite rightly left deeply traumatised, but she had the courage to contact the police the next day and she put her trust in us to investigate this.

"Without the victim there would not have been a case against Ali so we must pay tribute to her bravery."

The pair caught a taxi into Rochdale and were dropped off on Oldham Road, near a takeaway called Big Chef.

They were met by two men and were taken up to a flat at the back of the takeaway where they were given alcohol.

A short time later the victim was taken to an adjacent room where she was raped by Ali.

The victim and her friend later left the flat and she called the police the following day.

Teenager suffers fractured skull in assault

Teenager suffers fractured skull in assault | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
A teenager suffered a fractured skull during an assault in Rochdale.

 

At about 10.30pm on Friday 10 August 2012, a 15-year-old boy was hit over the head with an unknown object.

He suffered a cut to his head and a fractured skull.

The incident happened on St John Street where the victim and his friend, an 11-year-old boy, had earlier been throwing mud at passing cars.

It is believed the offender was in a passing car, a silver or white Toyota Avensis, possibly a taxi, and assaulted the victim after something was thrown at his car.

 

He is described as being Asian, about 5ft 6in tall, of large build with black hair and thick eyebrows. He was wearing a white shirt and black trousers.

 

Detective Constable Ruth Thompson, of Rochdale CID, said: “Clearly the teenage boy should not have been throwing anything at passing cars, mud or otherwise, but there are no excuses for the violent assault that left him with a fractured skull.

“I want to hear from anyone who saw what happened or thinks they know the driver of this car to get in touch.”

 

Anyone with information is asked to call Rochdale CID on 0161 856 4644, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Rochdale News: Outrage at Hussain 'promotion'

Rochdale News: Outrage at Hussain 'promotion' | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

The news that Labour councillor Aftab Hussain has been 'promoted' to Chairman of the Pennines Township Committee has been unpopular amongst the people of Rochdale.

Hussain gave a positive character reference for Abdul Qayyum, who was later convicted of conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Both Hussain and former mayor Zulfiquar Ali, who stepped down, appeared as character witnesses for Qayyum.

Ali has since called his decision as a “silly mistake”. Hussain, however, remains in his role as a Labour councillor in the Firgrove and Smallbridge ward, and is now chariman of a Township committee.

When asked their thoughts on Hussain’s position, the people of Rochdale were unanimous. A Harris, who works in the town centre, said: “It’s just Rochdale all over, it’s an absolute joke. He should have been sacked, never mind standing down. It infuriates me.”

Richard Brockley said: “I don’t think he should have kept his job, and I don’t think he should be earning any more either. I think it’d be the same though in any other town.”

A resident who did not want to be named said: “He should have been out of the job the moment he wrote the letter. This town only protects certain people, and we can’t do anything about it. Have the police just turned a blind eye?”

One of the integral roles of a councillor is that of a corporate parent, a role that gives responsibility to all councillors for the welfare of the town’s children.

Jean Ashworth is an ex-councillor. She said: “Corporate parenting is one of the most important roles a councillor undertakes. It involves protecting, supporting and being there for all vulnerable children.

“Councillor Hussain should have known better than to support a suspect. Is an apology enough? At the end of the day the man was convicted – Hussain has gone against this poor girl.”

Detectives investigating Rochdale child sex ring make two more arrests

Detectives investigating Rochdale child sex ring make two more arrests | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
Detectives who smashed the Rochdale child sex grooming ring have arrested two more suspects.

 

Two men, both 33, were held earlier this week on suspicion of rape and sexual assault. They were bailed pending further inquiries. The men, who are from Rochdale and are understood to be Asian, are suspected of abusing one of the five girls who gave evidence during the trial at Liverpool, which ended in the jailing of nine men. The trial heard the girl was plied with drink before being raped or sexually abused from the age of 15 over a period of two years. The girl has told officers she was also abused by four other men, who she knew only by nicknames, in 2008 or 2009. Although the claims were not part of the court case, detectives have continued to investigate her allegations and now believe they have established the identities of those four men. At least one of them is thought to have fled to Pakistan. One senior detective said: "Our inquiry continues. There are other potential victims coming forward. The positive side of the court case is that people want to speak to us. We’ll have to see where that takes us." The two suspects arrested earlier this week have not been quizzed in connection with allegations of a second child sex case in the town. It was revealed last week how nine men had been arrested over allegations from another girl who has told officers she was sexually abused over a six-year period from the age of 12.

 

Anyone who is concerned about a child or young person can call GMP on 101 or 999 in emergencies. You can also call the NSPCC on 0800 800 5000. Any child or young person wanting help and advice can use the numbers above or contact Childline on 0800 1111.

A jury has retired to consider its verdicts in the trial of 11 men accused of being part of a child sexual exploitation ring.

Liverpool Crown Court heard that five girls were groomed for sex and "shared" by the men from Heywood and Rochdale.

The jury of three men and nine women in the nine-week trial has been told that the men plied the girls, some as young as 13, with drink and drugs.

A 59-year-old man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, denies the same charge.

He also denies two counts of rape, aiding and abetting a rape, one count of sexual assault and an allegation of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.

Mr Hassan, of Lacrosse Avenue, Oldham, and Mr Shahzad, of Tweedale Street, Rochdale, also deny rape.
Mr Aziz, of Armstrong Hurst Close, Rochdale, denies two counts of rape and one allegation of trafficking for sexual exploitation.
Mr Khan, of Oswald Street, and Mr Rauf, of Darley Road, both in Rochdale, have also pleaded not guilty to trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Ninth Rochdale Muslim paedophile scum finally named

Ninth Rochdale Muslim paedophile scum finally named | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
The evil Muslim predatory paedophile who headed the Rochdale child sex grooming gang has finally been named as Shabir Ahmed.

The 59-year-old from Windsor Road, Oldham can be unveiled after a judge in another case revoked the ban on the media identifying him.

Ahmed,a father-of-four,raped an under-age girl above a Heywood takeaway where he worked as a delivery driver before passing her among other Muslim beasts so they could also sexually abuse her.

He encouraged his victims in the Rochdale grooming case to call him 'daddy'.

The Pakistan-born former taxi driver claimed the young girls gave him the name because he would reprimand them if they misbehaved in the takeaway.

He was one of nine monsters convicted at Liverpool Crown Court in May over the sexual grooming of defenceless girls in Rochdale between 2008 and 2010.

He raped one under-age girl twice and 'aided and abetted' in a third rape by another takeaway worker,Kabeer Hassan who was sentenced to nine years for rape and three years,concurrently,for the conspiracy conviction,at Liverpool Crown Court in May.

Ahmed behaved with no sense of remorse during the Liverpool trial, taking off his t-shirt and tearing out handfuls of his own chest hair in front of the judge in an insane bid to demonstrate he would have left damning evidence of follicles of his own hair at the scene of his crimes.

He regularly accused the judge,the jury,and the police of being part of a racist conspiracy against Muslims.

All the perverts were Muslim and all the five young victims who testified during the trial were white. "It's all white lies," he said. But it was disclosed he repeatedly raped an Asian girl over many years.The prohibition on identifying Ahmed was lifted yesterday after another jury at Manchester Crown Court found Ahmed guilty of yet more sex crimes,this time the repeated rape over several years of the Asian girl.

In the latest case,he was found guilty of 30 counts of rape against the girl from a very young age over many years.

The jury were left unaware of his part in the Rochdale child sex grooming scandal until Ahmed went into the witness box and told all as part of his bid to persuade them he was the victim of a conspiracy against the Muslim community.

He was jailed for 19 years at Liverpool Crown Court in May after a jury convicted him of three counts of rape against one girl, sex assault of another girl, trafficking within the UK and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a minor.

The Manchester jury had been told of the rape and sex assault convictions but not of the other charges and how he was pivotal to the Rochdale case.

The jury in the latest case discarded his defence and found him guilty of 30 counts of rape.

To keep in tradition when these evil perverts are jailed,he smiled as the verdicts were read out.

Judge Mushtaq Khokhar told him:”As you know you have been convicted of serious offences. The court does require further information in your case before proceeding to sentence.”

He adjourned the sentencing until August 2 for the preparation of reports.
He dismissed a request by Ahmed's barrister for instant sentencing.

The victim in the latest case had contacted police about the abuse but primarily decided not to press charges. It was only when police arrested Ahmed over the Rochdale scandal that they returned to the victim and she gave full details of the deep rooted sexual abuse she suffered at his hands.

She told how the fiend continued to rape her even as she sobbed - precisely what he did when he raped a girl of 15 as part of the Rochdale grooming case. She believes she fell pregnant after one of the rapes but had a miscarriage.

During one of several rants during the latest trial, Ahmed screamed: "We are a civilised society. We are the supreme race, not these white b******s (pointing to police officers in court)."

He continued: "You will not get a CBE. You will not get an MBE. You will get a DM, a destroyer of Muslims. You were born one thousand years too late.

You f***ed my community.You destroyed my community and our children.None of us did that.White people trained those girls to be so much advanced in sex.

They were coming without hesitation to Rochdale,Oldham, Bradford, Leeds and Nelson and wherever."
He said the jury in Liverpool has been 'taking instructions' from BNP leader Nick Griffin and later pointed to Rachel Smith, who prosecuted both cases on behalf of the CPS, saying: "I curse you at night. I curse you and your family. You will understand (pointing at Judge Khokhar).

I curse the juries.I curse the media and most of you b******s.Your family will get it.You have destroyed our community... Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Maggie Thatcher.They are all the same.They're all on the take.

They (looking at the police) are on the take.It's true.They are all bent b******s.It has to be taken by average people like you and I. They take all the money and we take all the weight.These (pointing at the police officers) were p****d on by Theresa May.

May you be more p****d on."

Nick Griffin may not have the power to "give instructions" to a jury in Liverpool,but the British National Party have the power on the streets to keep demonstrating and raising awareness about this sick cancer that has its tentacles firmly wrapped around communities the length and breadth of our nation,these beasts are finally being brought to justice,but it is a microscopic portion and we will not rest until every last one of these Muslim paedophiles are taken off our streets,jailed and then deported.

Two more Muslims found guilty of grooming and raping young white victims

Two more Muslims found guilty of grooming and raping young white victims | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
Two Muslim men - Mahfuzur Rahman and Abdul Hannan - have been found guilty of raping or sexually assaulting four young white women after they picked them up and plied them with alcohol.

 

The trial of Rahman, 25, and Hannan, 36, has raised concerns after two of their victims gave videotaped interviews in 2009 and 2010, in which they described being raped by Rahman but criminal investigations were abandoned, leaving the rapist free to strike again.

The girls, all from Rochdale, were said to be failed by police and prosecutors when they first reported they had been attacked.

Bolton Crown Court heard that Rahman went on to assault an innocent 17-year-old girl living in a children’s home and sexually assaulted her in a flat after giving her vodka.

In June 2010 a 19-year-old woman was taken to a flat in Rochdale where she was also supplied with vodka before Rahman raped her while she begged for him to stop.
In September 2011, a 20-year-old woman was driven around Rochdale by Rahman and two other men, who got her drunk before she was raped at a flat by Hannan.

When police from Greater Manchester arrested and cautioned Rahman on question of rape last September, he replied: “Rape? Which one?”
Rahman was found guilty on two counts of rape and one of sexual assault while Hannan was convicted of rape.

Both men will be sentenced on 13 July.
Greater Manchester Police stated “the decisions made in the earlier investigations” to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor for the North West, said the status of women among some Asian men led to cases of white girls being sexually abused.

Afzal said it should not pass unnoticed "that the perpetrators were Asian and the victims were not".
"Cultural baggage and the status of women among some men in these communities contributes to their disrespect for the rights of women,"

The Telegraph quoted Afzal, as saying:"Exploitation happens in every community but these cases demonstrate that group grooming is a particular problem in Asian communities. I will not turn a blind eye to crimes in any community," he added.

It certainly seems to be the case that Nazir Afzal will continue to use the term ‘Asian’ when the term Muslim paedophiles would be far more accurate, as shown in Blackpool yesterday, the British National Party and other nationalist groups will continue to raise awareness that the sexual grooming of young white girls by Muslim perverts is a cancer in our society that must be eradicated.

We will continue to demonstrate and make a whole lot more noise until we find some justice and every last one of these evil monsters is languishing in a prison cell facing deportation when their sentence is finished.

Jessica had a loving, very middle-class upbringing. So how did she become a victim of the Rochdale sex gang?

Jessica had a loving, very middle-class upbringing. So how did she become a victim of the Rochdale sex gang? | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Victim: Jessica, here aged five. As a young teenager she was lured by a criminal gang into an underage sex-for-sale ring.

 

As a child, Jessica loved playing in the tent in the garden, or walking her pet dog on the beach in sight of Blackpool’s famous tower, seven miles away up the Lancashire coast. She would go back to her family’s smart home for an early supper with her father Jim, a successful property developer, mother Jennifer, and her sister Melissa, who is three years younger.

The family moved to Rochdale, Greater Manchester, when Jessica turned 13, and it was the same story of happy family life. ‘The girls always came home for our evening meal together,’ remembers Jim today. ‘Even as young teenagers, they were not allowed to stay out after 7.30 in the evening. We set down rules, and they had a childhood full of ballet classes and wonderful holidays.’

Yet, to the bewilderment of her loving parents, Jessica’s behaviour suddenly changed. ‘By the age of 15, she wanted to be out late at night all the time. If we kept her in, she’d climb out of the upstairs window on to a flat roof above the porch, jump down and disappear into the streets. It was much worse than normal teenage rebellion.

‘We would drive my BMW around trying to find her. It happened at least 20 times, more than I can remember. She fell in with a local girl we did not like and started to use vulgar swear words in front of her sister.’

Now Jim and Jennifer know the truth. Their slim, dark-haired, pretty daughter — who was then studying for her GCSEs at state school — had been lured by a criminal gang into an underage sex-for-sale ring operating from Pakistani-run kebab shops and takeaways in Rochdale. At one stage, horrifyingly, she was being forced to sleep with five men a day, four or five times a week.

Last week, after a lengthy trial, the gang’s 59-year-old ringleader (who cannot be named for legal reasons) and eight other men were jailed for offences including rape, aiding and abetting rape, the trafficking of girls and conspiracy to have sex with a child. One was an Afghan national and the rest were of Pakistani heritage.

It was the latest in a string of almost identical high-profile cases in northern England and the Midlands involving the sexual abuse of white underage girls by street-grooming gangs.

For years, a dangerous myth has surrounded this type of sex crime. In this era of political correctness, it is a myth promoted by the police, the BBC, and many media commentators. They insist that the perpetrators come from every ethnicity and not, primarily, from the British Muslim Pakistani community.

In fact, almost all of the scores of men convicted of street-grooming schoolgirls for sex — and there have been at least 21 court cases since 1997 — have had exactly this ethnic background.

The abuse began at two takeaways in the Heywood area of Rochdale, including the Balti House, which is under new ownership
And now, a new myth is being peddled: that the girls themselves are somehow to blame. A picture has been painted of them as the wild progeny of feckless parents, or as girls lost in the care system who are prepared to sell themselves, as one male BBC Question Time panellist put it this week, ‘for a packet of crisps or a bit of credit on their mobile phone’.

But as Jessica’s parents prove in this haunting interview, that is not necessarily the case at all.

The Rochdale gang convicted last week beguiled naive girls, one barely out of primary school, with bottles of vodka, cigarettes and mobile phones. And then, these children were forced to have sex with the gang members and scores of their friends.

To silence their victims, many of whom came from decent homes like Jessica’s, the gang threatened to tell their families they were prostitutes, rape their little sisters or kill their parents with knives or firebombs.

Jessica was the key witness in the shocking trial of the Rochdale street grooming gang. She bravely gave evidence, known only as Girl A — and her story was as heart-rending as it was shocking.

At 15, she became friends with an older white girl (the friend her parents disliked) who took her to a kebab shop and introduced her to the men who worked there. The girls began visiting regularly and, at first, the men were friendly. They gave the girls copious glasses of vodka and food. As Jessica told the court: ‘They also made me feel like I was pretty.’

But soon she began to realise the men were anything but friends. One day, a 59-year-old man, who turned out to be the gang’s ringleader, who was convicted at the recent trial, invited her to a room above the kebab shop for a chat. He reminded her of the free vodka and meals he had given her.

He said he wanted something back from Jessica in return. When she said no, he hurled her on to a bare mattress on the floor and raped her.

Jessica later recalled that as he forced himself on her, she found herself staring at a children’s clock hanging on the wall of the upstairs room. It had the face of an angel on it. Afterwards, the man told her not to cry.

When she finally got home, Jessica was too terrified to tell her parents. And besides, the gang promised they would beat up her, or her family, if she spoke to Jim and Jennifer about what had happened or refused to return to the kebab shop.

Under new ownership: The Tasty Bites takeaway – now renamed Bakar’s – was the other takeaway at the centre of the scandal
So it was that this terrified schoolgirl was ensnared — and that first rape was to turn into months of sexual attacks by dozens of men, who paid the gang £30 or £40 a time to sleep with her (from which she and other girls were occasionally given £10). On one occasion she was handed over free ‘as a treat’ to one of the gang members, a 25-year-old called Kabeer Hassan, who was convicted at the recent trial.

At the height of her ordeal, Jessica was driven in the gang’s taxis and pizza delivery vans around a succession of flats and houses in Rochdale and other former mill towns in the north, where there are large Pakistani communities. There, groups of men she did not know were waiting to rape her over and over again — and then hand over their cash to the gang.

‘I don’t know how many I had to sleep with . . . I couldn’t even count them in my head,’ she later told police. The men never used condoms.

She recalled at one point how at first she felt dirty and ashamed, but as time went on she just felt numb. As she said: ‘It had been going on for so long with so many different men it was as if it wasn’t me any more. I just couldn’t get out of it . . . I was trapped. It just became like a daily life.’

At home, as Jessica’s torment increased, her parents began to suspect something was wrong, but could not establish what it was.

Jim says: ‘When Jessica started coming home late with gifts of toys or sweets for her sister, we knew she didn’t have the pocket money to buy them. The idea that she was shoplifting went through our mind, and we invited the social services here to this house, but they refused to help us.’

The couple would berate Jessica for staying out late and being rude to them. ‘I would get cross with her,’ remembers 43-year-old Jim. ‘But she wouldn’t tell us anything. Of course we now know she was in the clutches of a criminal gang which was threatening to hurt us and her younger sister if she said a word.’

It was in August 2008, several months after she first went to the kebab shop, that Jessica summoned the courage to fight back against her abusers. After being plied with drink, she flew into a rage and smashed the counter of the shop in a protest at her treatment by the men.

The police were called and she seized the chance to blow the whistle on the gang. At that point, she told officers she had been attacked by two men, and an investigation began which involved taking DNA swabs from Jessica’s clothes and the men she accused.

For the first time, Jessica reluctantly told her parents a half-truth about the police inquiry. She said she had been raped by a man in the town.

Her mother cannot erase the memory of that terrible day. ‘When Jessica told us, we were so sad. We felt her innocence had been taken away. At that point we thought it was a one-off incident, although deeply traumatic for her.’

But if Jessica hoped informing the police would bring her suffering to an end and the rapists to justice, she was bitterly mistaken.

Just two weeks later, one of the gang, 41-year-old Abdul Aziz, started pestering her again on her mobile. Other gang members found out where she lived and watched her house from their taxis and delivery vans. Amid threats from the gang that they would tell her family she’d had sex with men for money, she felt compelled to visit her tormenters again.

What followed next is a scenario few will understand. For soon, Jessica was back in the gang’s clutches and being raped by more men. As she explained in a quiet voice at the trial: ‘They threatened to batter me and tell my mum the truth about me. I was scared to say no to them.’

Finally, having assessed Jessica’s allegations, the Crown Prosecution Service told the police that there was no prospect of a successful conviction. It reached that view despite DNA linking her directly to the 59-year-old gang leader.

As a result, scandalously, the gang remained free to continue grooming other schoolgirls for another two long years.

During the trial this month, the court heard how the girls — all under 16 — were held down by their abusers and raped. Some of the victims drank themselves into oblivion to blot out what was happening. Men would line up outside bedrooms in sleazy properties to have sex with them. One girl slept with 20 men in a single evening.

The gang used nicknames such as Tiger, Master and Daddy, so their young victims they could not later give their real identities to the police.

It was only when Nafir Afzal, a new Crown Prosecution Service chief in the area, reviewed Jessica’s file in 2010 that the police inquiry was re-opened. Mr Afzal says today that Jessica was ‘let down by the whole system’.

At least 47 girls were systematically abused by the gang before the first arrests were made, but only five dared to give evidence at the trial for fear of reprisals from the gang.

For Jim and Jennifer, the trial — which Jim attended — was an appalling ordeal. Before that, Jessica, who is now 19, had spared them details of the number of men who had raped her.

Sitting with her husband in their neat family home, Jennifer recalls the nightmare of hearing the truth for the first time. ‘Before the court case, she told us bits of things,’ she says. ‘We had a broad idea, but did not know everything. We were horrified.’

Blinking back tears, Jessica’s father says: ‘Since the trial, we have heard time and again, on the TV, radio and in some newspapers, that the gang’s victims were ‘vulnerable’ girls. But this isn’t the truth. This crime can happen to any girl from any background.

‘We want to warn other parents and other girls to beware. These men make friends with kids coming out of school in the afternoon, on the streets where they shop on a Saturday afternoon.

‘The younger the girls, the more innocent they are of the dangers. They are flattered by the attention and they think it is exciting to go to a kebab house and be given a meal and a glass of vodka.

‘Jessica had a lovely home, and a mother who was waiting here to greet her from school. We had told her never to talk to strangers. But these men were introduced to her as friends and she believed, to begin with, they were her friends.’

For their part, Jessica’s parents believe there is a disturbing racial element to the sex crimes of these grooming gangs run by British men of Pakistani descent. ‘All too often, these men think white girls are worthless and deserve what they get,’ says Jim.

Supporting their fears, one Muslim leader said after the trial his community were ‘burying their heads’ in the sand over this issue.

Although the great majority of Pakistani Muslim men must utterly deplore these crimes, a small minority believe white British girls are ‘easy meat’ who have none of the modesty of their own sisters, daughters and nieces.

After one recent case, a radio station asked British men from Pakistani families in Bradford why so many white girls were targeted by the gangs. One man replied: ‘It is the way woman dress, isn’t it, in mini-skirts? It encourages men to go and jack (snatch or attack) them.’

For the record Jessica — who now lives away from Rochdale (to avoid reprisals from associates of the jailed gang) but sees her parents regularly — never dressed in a skirt, let alone a mini-skirt. ‘She’s always in jeans or jogging pants and covers herself up,’ says Jim.

‘She did nothing to deserve the treatment she got from those men. If this can happen to Jessica, it can happen to any girl.’

When Jim shows me politely to the front door, we pass a blue plastic box in the hallway. It is an alarm system linked to the police — there in case any of the jailed gang’s associates come looking for the girl who bravely blew the whistle on them or seek to take revenge on her family.

For Jessica and her parents — and so many others who fell victim to these wicked men — the ordeal is far from over.

Some names have been changed to protect Jessica’s identity.

Deport Rochdale child rapists, demands Hall Green MP Roger Godsiff

Deport Rochdale child rapists, demands Hall Green MP Roger Godsiff | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
AN INNER city Birmingham MP has made an outspoken call for nine men responsible for abusing girls as young as 13 to be deported after serving their sentences – even if they are now British citizens.

 

Hall Green Labour member Roger Godsiff has written to the Home Secretary demanding tougher action after a judge sentenced the men to a total of 77 years between them.

They targeted vulnerable girls, some of them in the care of social services. He said any of the Asian men who were born overseas should be deported, even if they were now British citizens.

On sentencing at Liverpool Crown Court, Judge Gerald Clifton said the convicted men treated the girls “as though they were worthless and beyond respect”.

Mr Godsiff’s plea goes far beyond existing government policy. Ministers say they support deporting foreign criminals, meaning those that are not UK citizens, although like the last Labour government they have found this is not always easy to do in practice.

The nine men convicted in Rochdale were Muslims of Pakistani ethnic origin. Mr Godsiff said Birmingham Muslims in his constituency had led condemnation of the men.

Mr Godsiff said: “I have received a number of representations from members of the Muslim community living in my constituency who are disgusted and appalled by what these men did to vulnerable young girls and a number of them are strongly of the view that these individuals have no right to be part of British society.

He went on to say: “While I understand that those individuals who were born in this country have a legal entitlement to remain here I note that the ring leader is 59 years old and may not have been born here”.

The MP concluded: “I have sort assurances that those members of the gang who were not born in the UK but who have been allowed to come here, settle, and may have become British citizens will have their entitlement to be here and any citizenship rights removed and that they will be deported at the end of their sentences.”

In other press coverage of the trial proceedings it has been suggested that at least two of the convicted will be deported at the conclusion of their sentences.

Following the convictions, Det Chf Supt Mary Doyle of Greater Manchester Police described the defendants as “pure evil”.

Exclusive: Men arrested as police launch new child sex probe in Rochdale

Exclusive: Men arrested as police launch new child sex probe in Rochdale | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
Police who smashed the Rochdale child sex ring believe they have uncovered a SECOND grooming scandal in the town. The M.E.N. can today reveal that several men have been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing the same girl.

 

Police who smashed the Rochdale child sex ring believe they have uncovered a SECOND grooming scandal in the town. The M.E.N. can today reveal that several men have been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing the same girl. The alleged abuse is believed to have taken place over a six-year period when the girl was in her teens. Sources described her as ‘extremely vulnerable’. Detectives have carried out video interviews with the girl, who told them she knew the men only by nicknames. A string of suspects were tracked down by officers and a number of arrests have now been made. The men in question are all from Asian and Afro-Caribbean backgrounds, the M.E.N. understands. Detectives are exploring possible links between the men, although none have been established so far. A file of evidence is expected to handed over to the Crown Prosecution Service within weeks. The news comes just days after nine Asian men from Rochdale and Oldham were jailed over the sexual exploitation of girls as young as 13. The gang was convicted on the back of evidence from five witnesses, who suffered horrific abuse between 2008-2010. The team of detectives who investigated the case encountered 47 other girls who they believe were also the victim of sexual abuse. One is the alleged victim behind the latest arrests. The suspects do not include any of the men jailed this week. One senior detective told the M.E..: “Enquiries are continuing. Just because the trial has finished and nine men have been convicted does not mean the operation has stopped. “We are continuing to chip away, gaining the confidence of the girls.” The conclusion of the case this week sent shockwaves through the Rochdale community and sparked a major debate about whether the crimes were racially motivated. Judge Gerald Clifton, jailing the nine, suggested they had targeted their victims because they were ‘not of your community or religion’. But police and political leaders denied the crimes were about race – saying the men had targeted their victims simply because they were vulnerable.
