Asian ‘paedophile’ gang at Liverpool Court listen as jury hears evidence 13 yr old girl was raped by 3 men as she lay vomiting on bed, harrowing tale!
Do you know Kabeer Hassan, 24, Abdul Aziz, 41, Abdul Rauf, 43, Mohammed Sajid, 35, Adil Khan, 42, Abdul Qayyum, 43, Mohammed Amin, 44, Qamar Shahzad, 29, Liaquat Shah, 41, and Hamid Safi, 22?
Chances are not personally, they are all on trial at present in Liverpool charged with a variety of sex offences against children, including rape, trafficking, sexual assault and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.
The rise of Asian rape gangs operating in Britain is a touchy subject, on the one hand politicians fear minorities who might claim they are racist for speaking out, and on the other they fear people turning against them for doing nothing.
That is why race is a touchy political subject.
Race is a stick that politicians fear to be beaten with, because they don’t want tagged with being labelled as a racist.
The case of Kabeer Hassan et al isn’t new; people have known this type of behaviour has operated in the Asian Community for sometime, however this is limited to a minority of that community.
In evidence in court, the jury heard that a 13-year-old girl was plied with alcohol and repeatedly raped by a gang of 11 Asian men.
13 years old and raped by a gang, people can scarcely believe this is happening in Britain in 2012.
And this wasn’t an isolated incident, she was one of number of schoolgirls targeted by the gang of 11 men, who gave them drink and drugs before they raped them.
The gang operated by targeting vulnerable children then passed among their group sometimes forcing them to have sex with several men in one day.
It is all to disgusting for words.
And these girls were vulnerable, all came from broken homes, so were seen as easy prey.
The attacks were predictable; the gang would incapacitate the little girls with drink or drugs so they couldn’t defend themselves.
The jury had to sit through the harrowing evidence of one 13-year-old girl who had become pregnant by one man and had the baby aborted.
And in other evidence straight out a scene you would expect to find in a third world civil war another teenager claimed she was raped by three men while she was being sick over the side of the bed.
Judging by what is in the public domain, someone is definitely going to jail for double digit figures.
Rachel Smith, prosecuting, said the teenage girls were given food, alcohol and money by the men in return for sex, and a pattern of abuse began.
She told Liverpool Crown Court:
“There were also times when the girls were subjected to violence to secure for the men the opportunity to have sex with them. There were also occasions on which one or more of the girls were so incapacitated by alcohol and/or drugs that they were incapable of having any control over whether or with whom they had intercourse.”
The court was told some of the gang operated a paid paedophile ring by taking payments from other men in the group.
The jury heard that all in five teenage girls, all younger than 16 were abused by the gang on a regular basis between 2008 and 2010.
Rachel Smith told the jury:
“The events and circumstances described by the girls are at best saddening and at worst shocking in places – no child should be exploited as these girls say they were”.
Miss Smith added that one girl, who was 13 when the alleged abuse began, told police that the men she met were ‘friends’ who looked after her and ‘her number would be passed around amongst the Pakistani men in her area’.
The girl told Police officers:
“They pass it to their friends and they pass it to their friends, end up with a massive circle... everyone’s got it.”
The court heard that it was ‘common knowledge’ among the defendants that the girls were underage.
One defendant Abdul Rauf allegedly asked one girl if she knew anyone younger.
At Liverpool Court where the trial is running there is a strong police presence at the Court, presumably they are worried that people may take matters into their own hands.
Someone is definitely going to prison, I don’t see a jury hearing this type of evidence not convicting.
