Mubarek Ali, the notorious MUSLIM leader of a paedophile sex gang in Telford, one of many in Britain, will be released from prison 17 years early. The sexual grooming gang had preyed on, raped, and pimped out girls as young as 12 years old to customers for at least two years.
Ali (below), 34, was then captured as part of a police investigation called Operation Chalice in 2013, and was jailed for 22 years. However, he is now reportedly set to be released as early as November.
Telford MP Lucy Allen said that Ali’s release was ‘wrong’, and could lead to him rejoining the community where his victims continue to live. In an open letter to local paper the Shropshire Star, she added that his victims are ‘living in fear’ and should have been properly consulted before his release.
‘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,’ she said.
Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for the Justice Secretary to prevent the early release of Mubarek Ali. People in Telford who know the case, or who know those affected by the crimes, have taken to social media to voice disgust after it was revealed that Ali is set to be released.
What we see in this case is that 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.’
Four young women, who were aged 13 to 16 when they were abused between 2007 and 2009, gave evidence to Worcester Crown Court during the trial in 2013. Mubarek’s co-defendant, 27-year-old Ahdel Ali, was sentenced to 26 years in prison.
