A vile man who led a child sex gang is set to be released more than a decade before his sentence has been served.
Mubarek Ali prayed on girls as young as 13. He was sentenced to 22 years in prison (not long enough in my opinion), however, Ali has been released after serving just 5 years.
It really does make you think that this justice system has serious problems.
I’m pretty sure this man will go back to his old ways. He is a threat to our children.
Worst of all, the victims were unaware he is being released so soon.
Ms Allan said the authorities did not inform victims of the forthcoming release or involve them in the terms of the release. She said: “Victims and members of the public would have expected a 22 year sentence to mean that the community could have time to heal and victims would be able to get on with their lives.
“What we see in this case is that the one of the main perpetrators is being released into the community only five years after the trial.
“This is clearly of enormous concern to victims in this case, especially those who gave evidence in court.
“What is unacceptable that in this case there was no attempt by the authorities to reach out these young women and prepare them for this wholly unexpected event.
“Worse still is the prospect that this person may be returned to Telford and naturally this has caused huge anxiety to victims.”
According to the Shropshire Star:
“West Mercia Police’s investigation into suspected under-age sex and child prostitution, seven men were finally convicted at Worcester Crown Court in 2013, after cases stretching over two years.
Four experienced judges heard distressing evidence from four young women, who were aged 13 to 16 when they were abused during a two-year period between 2007 and 2009. The leading players in the abuse were brothers, Ahdel and Mubarek Ali, then of Regent Street, Wellington, who received long jail sentences after an eight-week trial.
Ahdel Ali, 27, known as Eddie, was given a 26-year extended sentence – 18 years’ immediate custody with an additional eight-year period on licence after release.
Mubarek Ali, 34, known as Max, was given 22 years, 14 years’ immediate custody and eight years on licence, for seven offences – four of controlling child prostitution, causing child prostitution and two offences of trafficking in the UK for the purpose of prostitution, involving two of the victims. Both men were made the subject of lifelong Sexual Offences Prevention Orders.
Also convicted were Mohammed Ali Sultan, 29, of Victoria Avenue, Wellington; Tanveer Ahmed, 43, of Urban Gardens, Wellington; Mohammed Islam Choudhrey, 56, of Solway Drive, Sutton Hill; Mahroof Khan, 38, of Caradoc Flats, Kingshaye Road, Wellington, and Mohammed Younis, 63, of Kingsland, Arleston.”
