What a shame ‘human rights’ seem to get it so wrong, says Mercy Muroki
Mercy gives her view on grooming gangs avoiding deportation
On Saturday, I wrote in The Sun expressing my disgust that grooming gang convicts were exploiting our soft-touch legal systems to avoid being deported from Britain.
I said this: "Our politicians should stop being so spineless and send a long overdue, zero-tolerance message to these barbarians. If you come to this country and traffic, abuse and rape our children, you will either die behind bars, or be the first deportation flight out of Britain the second your sentence is over."
This is after it was revealed that one prolific Rochdale paedophile, who impregnated a 13-year old girl was arguing it would be against his ‘human rights’ to be deported.
In a hearing last week, Adil Khan claimed – get this – that deporting him back to Pakistan would be interfere with his right to a family life.
“My son needs a role model to teach him right from wrong”, the convicted sex offender, groomer, and paedophile told a judge.
I’m guessing Mr Khan doesn’t understand the word ‘irony’.
Well, it now seems that the prospects of Mr Khan being deported are slim to none – thanks to a legal system that seems to put the wellbeing of the most vile criminals over the wellbeing of victims.
Because this morning, it’s emerged that a ringleader of a grooming gang, Abdul Aziz, has successfully avoided being deported.
Abdul Aziz, along with nine other gang members were jailed in 2012 for child sex offences in Rochdale.
Since being released from jail, a number of men from child grooming gangs have fought long legal battles against deportation.
But Aziz has now reportedly already been told that he will NOT be stripped of his UK citizenship and deported.
Let me make this clear – the paedophiles are gaming the system. He was eligible for deportation because he also had Pakistani citizenship… but just a few days before the Court of Appeal ruled he could have his UK citizenship taken away, he renounced his Pakistani citizenship.
No surprise then, that other grooming gang members have renounced their foreign citizenship to avoid being deported.
Let’s remind ourselves what kind of people we’re talking about here.
Abdul Aziz was jailed for nine years in 2012 for sex offences, including sexually exploiting a 15-year old girl. He took his victim to flats in Rochdale where she was plied with vodka and drugs, and coerced into sex with gangs of men in return to payment to Aziz.
Khan got a 13-year-old girl pregnant, and then trafficked a 15-year old girl to others, using violence when she complained.
The courts are also hearing arguments for the deportation of Qari Abdul Rauf:
He trafficked young girl for sex, ferrying her in his taxi to have sex with other men.
It absolutely beggars belief that not only are these men out of prison and free to live their lives as we speak, but that they are avoiding deportation by gaming our so-called ‘justice’ system.
I said it on the weekend and I’ll say it again – any foreign individual who comes to this country and traffics and sexually abuses children should either spend the rest of their lives locked away, or be deported the second they’re out of jail.
What a shame that so-called ‘human rights’ seem to get it so wrong.
