Justice has been a long time coming, but for the victim of Muslim rapist Fokrul Islam it will be more than welcome. I cannot begin to imagine how she must of felt being the victim of such a horrific attack. Let alone that the Muslim beast responsible was still out there somewhere for 9 long years. She will no doubt be scared mentally for the rest of her to some extent. Lets hope Islam being where he belongs in prison and justice finally prevailing helps ease her pain.
Lowestoft rape: Fokrul Islam jailed for 2005 attack

A man has been jailed for nine years for dragging a woman off the street and raping her in the back of a vehicle ten years ago.
The victim, who was in her 30s, was attacked while walking on Raglan Street, Lowestoft, in January 2005.
Fokrul Islam, 38, from Nevendon Road, Wickford in Essex was found guilty of rape last year at Ipswich Crown Court.
Suffolk Police said the woman reported the attack at the time and this helped secure DNA evidence.
Islam was arrested after he was stopped by the UK Border Agency while travelling from Belfast to Liverpool last year.
Det Con Darren Winchester, from Suffolk Police, said: “Islam’s DNA was taken when he was stopped by the UKBA in March 2014 and from that he was identified as a suspect after his DNA matched that taken from the victim in 2005.
“The victim showed immense courage by reporting the rape very quickly and that ensured police were able to secure vital evidence.”
