One of the worst abuses in crime is against children and this story is pretty bad since it involved a man who was supposed to be involved in helping them.
A former Save the Children worker with connections to a Romanian paedophile ring has been jailed for four years after admitting raping a 14-year-old.
Four years is far too lenient when 10 years should have been the sentence followed by deportation to his home country and life time ban from entry to the EU.
Sohail Ayaz, 35 has pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court to the charge of rape.
Ayaz, a Pakistani national living in Barking, east London, also admitted distributing images of the child and possessing 397 other indecent pictures.
It beggars belief how he got into this country in the first place.
The Judge at his trial described it as "very disturbing and worrying" that Ayaz got work with a children's charity.
Ayaz who worked as an accountant, was not required to undergo a criminal record check at the charity since he had no access to minors.
A disturbing thing was that Ayaz entered the UK in 2008 on a two-year skilled worker visa and was arrested in February after Rome-based police started an investigation into an Italian child abuser.
It was clear that Ayaz was involved in child abuse for a considerable time. Police found that their suspect had been supplied with the details of 15 Romanian children by Ayaz.
Ayaz allegedly acted as middleman for a Swedish paedophile who said he could provide Romanian children for sexual abuse. I hope the Police have looked at his bank accounts to trace money coming into to his accounts as this may help trace down others involved in this sordid abuse.
The Italians have issued a European arrest warrant for Ayaz which could see him extradited to Italy to stand trial.
This is one character that needs lengthy jail sentences in both countries followed by deportation and life ban from EU soil.
