Robbie Moore, MP for Keighley and Ilkley, has been calling on the council to set up an inquiry, similar to the one led by Professor Alexis Jay in Rotherham in 2014, and during a debate on Tuesday evening several Tory MPs backed his campaign.

Home Office Minister Rachel Maclean said councils are responsible for ordering local inquiries and they have a “moral responsibility to do the right thing” and protect innocent children.

 
Funny they don't want to investigate, can't be that they are worried some friends and family are involved

No police were sacked over child grooming scandal: Officers avoided serious sanction over failures that let down victims of Rotherham gangs

  • Operation Linden probed 47 South Yorkshire Police officers after 44 white girls were abused between 1997 and 2013
  • No officer has been fired for the mistakes made resulting in the scandal
  • Only five officers received sanctions up to a final written warning from the IOPC

Not a single police officer has been sacked over widespread failures that let down victims of Asian grooming gangs in Rotherham, it was revealed yesterday.

A report by the Independent Office for Police Conduct said urgent action was needed to deal with problems that ‘still exist’ in handling child sex abuse cases.

Operation Linden probed 47 South Yorkshire Police officers after 44 white girls were abused between 1997 and 2013.

Seven men were found guilty of grooming and abusing young girls in Rotherham over a seven year period

Many officers exploited a loophole that meant if they resigned or retired they could not face disciplinary proceedings.

The IOPC said eight officers had a case to answer for misconduct and six for gross misconduct.

Five received sanctions up to a final written warning, which one campaigner branded ‘just a slap on the hand’.

Tim Forber, South Yorkshire’s deputy chief constable, said the force ‘fully accepted’ the report’s findings.

A man who posed as a taxi driver before a kidnapping a young woman in central London and attempting to sexually assault her has been jailed.

On 8 May 2017, Isaac Mabwa, 33, was driving a hire car when he came across the woman walking on Euston Road, central London in the early hours of the morning and offered her a lift home. The victim believed he was driving a taxi or minicab and got in the car.

The 25-year-old quickly realised something was wrong when Mr Mabwa drove the opposite direction from her home.

Over the next 90 minutes, she attempted to flee the car several times but the driver stopped her from doing so. The victim then messaged her boyfriend and a friend with her location.

Once Mr Mabwa stopped the car in an unlit carpark, the young woman began screaming and was heard by passers-by.

A short while later, Mr Mabwa was detained by officers and subsequently charged in April 2020 after a lengthy investigation.

Mr Mabwa was sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment at Wood Green Crown Court on Monday 29 November and also placed on the sex offenders register for life.

He was previously found guilty of kidnap, false imprisonment and committing an offence with intent to comment a sexual offence.

A devious sexual predator raped a total stranger as she tried to get home after a night out in the Gay Village.

Sajjad Sultan, 26, had only been out of prison for 11 days before he attacked the woman, aged in her 20s.

She had become separated from friends before Sultan, who had been hanging around Canal Street, pretended to be friendly to her.

He put her arm round her and walked with her as she went to a taxi rank.

Suddenly Sultan attacked her from behind in a dark canal towpath.

She has been left traumatised by the horrendous ordeal, and has made multiple attempts to end her own life.

Man jailed for rape in Canning Town

 
[JAILED: Bodor Ahmed]

A man who threatened a woman with a knife before raping her in Tower Hamlets has been jailed for 14 years.

Bodor Ahmed, 27 (15.07.94), of Balmore Close, E14, was sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Tuesday, 30 November. He pleaded guilty to rape, threatening a person with a knife and sexual assault at the same court on 1 September 2020.

At around 22:20hrs on 19 July 2020, Ahmed approached a 29-year-old woman who was walking along St Ives Place after leaving Canning Town Underground Station. He threatened her with a knife before forcing her into a residential property.

Once inside the property, her raped and sexually assaulted her, despite repeated pleas from the victim for him to stop.

Police were called by a member of the public who had seen Ahmed threaten the woman outside the building. Officers arrived and found the woman who was extremely distressed. They arranged specialist care for her.

Ahmed attempted to get away through an underground car park, but was confronted by officers who were able to detain him. A large kitchen knife was found nearby. He was arrested and taken into custody before being charged the following day.

Detective Constable Roberta Burkin, who worked on the investigation, said: "Ahmed's actions were absolutely appalling. He armed himself with a knife before carrying out an unprovoked attack on a defenceless woman for his own perverse gratification.

RAPE CHARGES 

Alleged grooming gang including 3 women and 39 men charged over rape and abuse of underage girls over 20 years

 
  • 15:33, 29 Nov 2021
  • Updated: 11:57, 3 Dec 2021

FORTY-TWO people, including three women, have been charged with historic child sex offences over a 20-year period.

They are alleged to have been part of a widespread grooming gang that targeted children between 1995 and 2015.

They are accused of prostitution, rape, indecent assault and false imprisonment, with the alleged offences involving six female victims who were all children at the time.

The gang - aged between 41 and 83 - will appear at Leeds Magistrates court tomorrow.

They are mainly from the Kirklees area of West Yorkshire and acted in the Dewsbury and Batley areas.

The charges come as part of a massive police operation into historic child sexual abuse by so-called grooming gangs.

She told how the abusers acted with impunity because police, social workers and council bosses feared being accused of racism.

Abdul Elahi: 'Dangerous predator' blackmailed 2,000 victims and sold 'box sets' of abuse to paedophiles

Financially desperate women, including mothers at risk of losing their homes or feeding their children, were among those targeted by 26-year-old Abdul Elahi, who posed as a wealthy stockbroker online.

Abdul Elahi is due to be sentenced later this week
 

A serial online blackmailer targeted almost 2,000 victims to amass images of degrading sexual acts before selling "box sets" of abuse to other paedophiles, a court heard.

Abdul Elahi, described as "an exceptionally dangerous predator" in court, blackmailed some women and young girls into abusing a baby or sibling as he offered to pay off their debts with Bitcoin.

Around 550 females in Britain are believed to have been targeted by the 26-year-old, with almost 2,000 identified altogether in the UK and US.

Among those targeted on so-called "sugar daddy" websites were financially desperate victims, including mothers at risk of losing their homes or struggling to feed their children.

Predator committed crimes while subject to sexual risk order

The so-called "box sets" of abusive images and videos compiled by Elahi were distributed in vast quantities, the court heard, after girls and young adults were blackmailed into providing humiliating and degrading sexual material.

Elahi, formerly of Sparkhill, Birmingham, has admitted 158 charges committed against 72 complainants and is believed to have tried to exploit victims in 34 different countries.

Prosecutor Adrian Langdale QC said the offending spanned a three-year period from 2017 to 2019, with many of the offences committed while Elahi was on bail and subject to a sexual risk order.

Elahi also "acted as a mentor" to abusers, the court heard, with "copy-cat" offenders targeting some of his victims.

Blackmailer targeted victims as a way of making money

As his sentencing got under way at Birmingham Crown Court, Elahi was described as being "in a league of his own" in terms of the sheer scale of his offending.

Elahi could be "juggling" many tens of potential victims at any one time, Mr Langdale told the court, while using a fake persona to pose as a wealthy stockbroker offering financial assistance.

"The whole persona, the whole arrangement, was a sham from the very beginning," said Mr Langdale. "He simply, it would appear, saw his victims as a way of making money.

"Victims were targeted day after day, with no let-up from Mr Elahi."

Elahi treated blackmailing as a 'full-time career'

The prosecutor said Elahi had switched online conversations to WhatsApp to cover his tracks, with 67,000 indecent images of children recovered from numerous devices and cloud storage.

"There is evidence that he carefully structured and logged all of his material," he said. "He sold that material on with a clear financial motive, irrespective of the damage that he was causing by spreading this material."

During the offending, the court heard, Elahi was living in his family home and his only legitimate income was from working for a short period in a branch of McDonald's.

He saw his crimes as a "full-time career and occupation".

Elahi admitted a host of charges at previous hearings after an investigation by the National Crime Agency, and is expected to be sentenced later this week.

A MAN crept into student accommodation and broke into a flat before sexually assaulting a woman.

The victim told her attacker, who also attempted to sexually assault a second female, he “took away their right to privacy” and the “right to sleep without being sexually assaulted”.

Akash Krishna Shrestha, 25, of Portland Road, Bournemouth, admitted sexually assaulting a woman and trespassing with the intent to sexually assault in Bournemouth in September 2021.

He appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court for sentencing on Monday, December 20.

The defendant wrote a letter to his victims, claiming his drink was spiked after a night in Cameo.

Prosecuting Andy Houston said the defendant recently graduated from Arts University Bournemouth.

The two women had been in bed since about 11pm when Shrestha crept into the building behind a group of people at around 5am.

Retired TV producer found guilty of possessing indecent images of children

21 December 2021|News, International and organised crime

A retired BBC producer has been found guilty of possessing 832 indecent images of children, hundreds of which showed sexual acts involving children.

Victor Melleney, 76, was convicted on Friday (17 December, 2021) at Kingston Crown Court after the jury heard evidence from the Crown Prosecution Service over 4 days.

NCA officers had raided properties in Sheffield Terrace, Kensington, and Royal Crescent London, Holland Park, in 2018 to find the hard drives containing material shared between Melleney and other users.

They also discovered illegal stun guns belonging to Melleney, which he admitted to possessing at an earlier court hearing in February 2021.

Ruona Iguyovwe, of the CPS, said: “Victor Melleney knew he was in possession of indecent images of children. The search history of devices recovered during searches of Melleney’s home revealed downloads of images depicting sexual activity involving children. Examination of the electronic devices also revealed software which can be used by users in sharing indecent images of children.

“The hard drives, recovered from his home, his basement, and hidden in the pocket of a dressing gown he was wearing when he was arrested, contained sickening videos, part of a collection downloaded over years.
