There is no helping low lifes like Ghani who already has a previous 184 criminal offences against his name, as they have no shame or remorse in them

Newcastle pervert Zahid Ghani facing jail over terrifying broad daylight sex attack

Victim Charlene Richards has told how the vile predator left her afraid to go out alone following the attack outside a Tesco store

This is pervert Zahid Ghani just moments after he became a convicted sex offender.

Victim Charlene Richards was left terrified to go out alone after the stranger grabbed her and pushed her to the ground before attempting to kiss her neck as she walked through Newcastle on a summer’s morning.

Ghani denied the broad daylight attack when he appeared before magistrates earlier this year.

But a judge found him guilty of sexual assault this week after brave Charlene gave evidence against him in a trial.

And after seeing her attacker warned he could be facing jail, the victim has said she is finally able to get on with her life after living in fear for almost a year.

Charlene, 21, said: “I was so happy and relieved when he was found guilty I just broke down crying. I just hope he goes to prison now. I feel much better now.”

 

Brian Payne, prosecuting, told the court how Charlene had just started walking from the Tyneside Foyer in the city centre to her mum’s house on Fenham, on the morning of June 25 last year, when she was approached by a man outside a city centre Tesco Express store and asked her for directions to Fenham, before following her and eventually grabbing her and trying to kiss her.

“She continued walking and the male continued to walk with her, he continued to try and talk to her, she tried to speed up but he would also speed up,” he said. “Then she was grabbed by him. There was nobody else around and no body who could help.

“She couldn’t move or break free. He said he wanted to kiss her four or five times then started to try and kiss her on the cheek. She was turning her head to keep away from him.”

The attack, which happened in the Monday Crescent area of Arthur’s Hill, came to an end when the man was disturbed by a passing van, Mr Payne explained. The man then walked off towards some nearby flats.

Charlene contacted police and officers found CCTV images of a man fitting the description she gave them from a camera at the Tesco store.

The picture of a man of Asian appearance, wearing a distinctive red waterproof coat, was circulated via the Northumbria Police website.

And Charlene uploaded it to her own Facebook page, asking friends if they recognised him.

Ghani was arrested after a member of staff at the Coquet Trust, a charity which helps people with learning difficulties, recognised him as one of its service users.

“He was interviewed on two occasions and he denied that anything in the way of an assault took place,” said Mr Payne. “He denied it was him and at one stage suggested he couldn’t have been where he was because he had a meeting with a support worker.”

However, the court heard evidence that Ghani, 37, of Beaconsfield Street, in Arthur’s Hill, had not attended this meeting, and that Charlene later picked him out during a police identity procedure.

In describing the moment she was attacked to the court, Charlene said: “He tried to take us to the floor by kissing my neck, my had froze and I couldn’t move. He was trying to kiss us on the neck but I was moving my head.”

And she said she broke down after the attack.

“I carried on walking along the street, it didn’t really hit us what had happened,” she said. “Then it sunk in and I collapsed on the floor, then this woman found us.”

Charlene said she recognised her attacker instantly when she was shown the CCTV picture. And within half an hour of putting the image on her Facebook someone had told her the man’s name.

“My friend new who he was because she used to live next door to him,” she told the court. “She informed me she had rung the police.”

Lewis Pearson, defending, argued that Charlene’s identification of Ghani was unreliable because she had already been told his name and seen his picture prior to the police procedure.

He also argued that the CCTV image released by police was of such a poor quality that no one could be sure of its identity.

However, District Judge Sarah-Jayne Griffith disagreed and found Ghani guilty of sexual assault.

She said: “I found Miss Richards to be a credible and compelling witness. She was very credible with her account. I’m not persuaded that the evidence of the identity is not reliable.

“Miss Richards was clear that the person she picked out in the identity procedure was the man she saw at Tesco wearing the distinctive jacket. I’m satisfied so I’m sure the defendant has committed this offence.”

In a victim impact statement read to the court, Charlene said: “I’m now worried to walk the streets on my own. I can’t understand why anyone would do this given the time of day. I feel anxious about being outside on my own.”

District Judge Griffith adjourned the case after hearing from Mr Payne that Ghani had a long criminal history with 184 offences recorded against him.

And in ordering Ghani to return to the court next month to be sentenced, she warned that he could be facing jail.

After the hearing, Charlene told of her relief.

She said: “I’m really pleased he got found guilty. I just totally broke down in court. It was horrible with him being right next to us. I had to look at him.”

And after leaving court Charlene cycled to her mum’s house following the same route she took on the day of the attack for the first time.

“I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder,” she said. “I’m not going to let him stop us. I’m not going to let him win.”

Communist Corbyn And His Support For ISIS Fundraiser Who Stole OAPs Life Savings

Yet another controversy surrounding the extremist Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn by support for a Muslim fraudster who swindled pensioners savings and donated funds to ISIS.  Corbyn wrote a letter on behalf of Muslim fraudster Mohamed Dahir to the Crown Court asking the judge to spare him a prison sentence

Criminal Mohamed Dahir was part of a gang of Muslims who preyed on old age pensioners, the most vulnerable in society. The victims who had an average age of 83 were scammed of almost a million pounds by the repulsive gang in total . Anybody who can target frail OAPs repeatedly and steal every penny they have saved without a second thought mustn’t have any decency or morales what so ever. They are the absolute filth of humanity and should be put down like you would do to an incurable rabid dog. 

It just about sums up the kind of person Jeremy Corbyn is. His support of IRA and Muslim terrorists is already well-known. Support of this piece of vermin shows without doubt that he is a disgrace. He hates the country and its people who much that he will give his support to the Muslim immigrants who commit the lowest of the low crimes over our nations elderly who have lived through the war and done their bit for our nation over the years and now left with nothing.

Does he have that little respect for the poor victims and their families!!  

God help us should the Labour party ever make it in to power with its communist leader Jeremy Corbyn at the helm. One term with him as Prime Minister drag the nation so far down that there would be no recovery leaving the UK on par with some third world countries. He would happily see every foundation that this country has made torn down at the first chance he got if it helped implement the extremist communism ideology that he craves.

He should be locked up for treason not serving as an MP representing the people. The only people he represents are his communist string pullers such as Unite the union and the SWP aswell as Muslims who they see as vital in their quest for power as they can play upon ‘victim of imperialism’ how Britain are bad ticket.

Corbyn takes Muslim appeasement to a totally new level. He makes Neville Chamberlains appeasement to Hitler look like hard balling and even eclipses traitor George Galloways cozying up to extremist Muslim regimes.

Lawyer for Muslim fraudster accused of funding ISIS tries to use letter of support from Jeremy Corbyn to keep his client out of jail over Christmas

  • Fraudster was part of a gang of three who targeted elderly people for cash
  • Scam was uncovered by police investigating the funding of terrorism 
  • Although investigated they were never charged with terror offences 
  • Lawyers for one of the gang handed letter from Corbyn to judge in the case
  • But today a judge turned down pleas for the conman to be given bail

A lawyer today tried to use a letter from Jeremy Corbyn to keep a Muslim fraudster accused of funding Islamic State terrorism out of jail over Christmas.

The Labour leader wrote a letter on behalf of Mohamed Dahir, asking for him to be granted bail when he was first charged.

The plea from Mr Corbyn emerged as Dahir, 23, and three other fraudsters were found guilty of conning pensioners out of their life savings of almost £1million by posing as police officers. Five others pleaded guilty.

Detectives believed that the gang ran a ‘bank of terror’ sending some of the money to Syria to support Islamic State, a court hearing was told in May.

Mr Corbyn originally sent the letter on behalf of Dahir, who is one of his Islington constituents, in May – four months before he became leader of the Labour Party.

He argued that Dahir had ‘roots in the area’ and was unlikely to abscond. The letter played a part in securing bail for him during the course of the trial.

But when Dahir’s barrister Patrick Harte attempted to use the letter again yesterday (Thu) to keep him on bail until sentencing, judge Anuja Dhir QC refused and remanded him in custody.

She said that now he had been found guilty there were significant grounds to believe he would fail to appear at his sentencing hearing next year.

The nine fraudsters are facing jail after conning the elderly out of £904,000 by pretending to be policemen investigating bank account scams.

The conmen told their victims their money was not safe in their accounts – and needed to be moved.

If any of them became suspicious they advised them to call their bank’s fraud department or ring 999. But the conmen kept the line open so the pensioners were actually speaking to one of the fraudsters.

Fraudsters visit Devon address and leave with wad of money

They preyed on the ‘frailty, vulnerability and isolation’ of pensioners with an average age of 83 and tricked them transferring their life savings into another account or into handing over cash.

The pensioners from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Bedfordshire, London and Kent thought they were talking to genuine policemen and willingly handed over their money for safekeeping.

Some were told they were helping an important undercover investigation and were ordered not to tell the bank clerk or local police officers in case they were part of the scam.

The gang, based in London, also played on family ties, allegedly claiming a victim’s grandchild had been caught up in the fraud and arrested and that cooperating with police was the only way they could help.

Pensioner William Goodall was even persuaded to cancel an important medical appointment so that he could help ‘police’ with their undercover operation.

Pensioner Elizabeth Curtis, 71, from Helston in Cornwall, lost £130,000 and Michael Garratt, 70, from Weymouth in Dorset, was conned out of £113,000. Meanwhile an unnamed 94-year-old man from west London had £130,000 stolen.

Last night Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism division described the scam as ‘one of the biggest courier fraud investigations carried out by British police’.

Commander Richard Walton said: ‘We uncovered this fraud after a separate terrorist investigation found suspicious payments into a bank account of an individual who is now believed to have travelled to Syria.

‘This callous group of criminals stole vast sums of money from extremely vulnerable and elderly people from across the country.

‘Their despicable actions have had a terrible and devastating impact on their victims with some losing their life savings.

‘The targeting of vulnerable men and women in their 80s and 90s is quite simply beyond belief.’

Commander Walton said the fraud was on a ‘huge national scale’ and involved 5,695 calls to 3,774 different phone numbers across the UK.

At least three of the conmen had attended London universities and some had experience in call centres which made them sound plausible on the telephone.

They often played background noises simulating bank call centres to make their calls appear genuine.

At an earlier hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, prosecutor Edward Aydin described it as financial terrorism ‘on an industrial scale’

He said the ‘sophisticated criminal network’ was ‘a threat to the national security of this country’.

Mr Aydin said: ‘Terrorism overall takes a new form in 2015 – it’s not on the battlefield. These people before you, they are the bank of terror. They are not small fry, they are deadly and dangerous.’

Dahir, Shakaria Aden, 21, Yasser Abukar, 23, and Mohammed Abokar, 28, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud between May last year and May 2015. Ibrahim Farah, 23, was cleared of the same charge.

Mohammed Abokar was also convicted of converting criminal property.

Fahim Islam, 20, Achmed Abdulaziz Ahmed, 23, and Makzhumi Abukar, 23, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud.

Anrul Islam, 24, and Mohammed Youssfi, 37, pleaded guilty to money laundering.

All nine will be sentenced next year.

Last night a Labour spokesman said Mr Corbyn had been approached by the constituent prior to the trial, and wrote a letter on his behalf as is standard for a constituency MP.

This was before the full facts of the case had emerged, and was on the basis that Mr Corbyn was informed the constituent needed to be at home with his children and would not abscond and could not travel abroad‎.

‎ The ‎spokesman said: ‘Jeremy Corbyn condemns the actions of his constituent as appalling acts against vulnerable people and wholly unacceptable.’

Muslim Spiritual Leader From Manchester Ordered Gang To Kidnap,Terrorise And Blackmail Two Families

Soft sentences for this criminal gang of Muslims headed by Islamic ‘Spiritual’ leader Tariq Dhamial given the serious nature of their crimes. The gang committed  a catalogue of crimes including kidnap and blackmail making the UK’s counterfeit capital, Cheetham Hill look more like the bandit lands of Peshwar than an area of Manchester.

Its a wonder he didn’t use Islam as his excuse for his criminal activities. Claiming he was only being a good Muslim trying to act like the perfect Muslim Mohammed who himself decieved others, took prisoners and extorted money from people.

Manchester: Muslim ‘Spiritual’ Leader Ordered Blackmail Gang to Terrorise Families

 Muslim Manchester gang
Tariq Dhamial, top left, was the leader of the gang that was jailed at Manchester Crown CourtGMP

Seven Manchester men have been jailed for a “terrifying” hold-up that saw the gang threaten two male hostages with weapons and demanded they phone their wives to beg for money.

The group, led by 44-year-old Muslim ‘spiritual leader’ turned vigilante Tariq Dhamial, known as “The Priest” to followers, threatened the pair with a hammer, knife, and hot iron after luring them to a house in Wordworth Avenue, Cheetham Hill, Manchester, on the premise they were completing a house sale.

However, after arriving at the address they soon became hostages and were told to pay £14,000 (€17,800).

The group took a wallet, watch, bracelet, phone, and keys from one of the victims and threatened to assault both of them if they didn’t pay the money.

Both victims were forced to ring their wives and arrange the transfer of £5000 and £9000 into two of the offender’s bank accounts. When they spoke to their wives they told them they were being held hostage.

The men were held overnight and the next day the police arrived at the address and arrested five of the offenders. The other two men were arrested within a matter of days.

Fateh Kashief Ahmed, 48, Shakoor Ahmed Butt, 35, Shazwan Ashraf, 31, Ghulam Ali, 33, all from Cheetham Hill; Tariq Dhamial, 54, of Blackley; Abdul Zubair Qadus, 33, of Salford; and Mohammed Khateer Ali, 31, all pleaded guilty to two counts of false imprisonment.

Dhamial was sentenced to four years in prison, while Kashief Ahmed, Ahmed Butt, Shazwan Ashraf, Ali, and Abdul Zubair Qadus were all sentenced to 32 months for each count, with the sentences to run concurrently.

Khateer Ali was sentenced to 27 months for each count, with the sentences to run concurrently.

Senior Investigating Officer Duncan Thorpe said: “The victims were severely beaten and threatened for money that the offenders believed was owed to them from a previous fraud.

“A separate investigation is being conducted in relation to the fraudulent activities of the two victims, but unfortunately the offenders in this case decided to take matters into their own hands and inflict violence upon the victims.

“They kept the two victims prisoner for a couple of days and this was clearly a terrifying experience for both men, but today justice has been done.”

Two Bogus Policemen With Pakistani Accents Attack And Rob Woman In front Of Her Children

There was a time when even criminals and gangsters had some kind of ethics and lived by a set of unwritten rules that if they were broken, members of the underworld would dish out their own justice. Now there is no such thing as honour amongst thieves. Especially when the criminals happen to be Muslims who are well known for lacking morales.  Robbing from your own in their home, hitting women and violence in front of children were all off limits. Unfortunately now its all part and parcel of daily life as Muslim criminals behave in the lawless ways of their motherland.

Ochrewell Avenue in Deighton

A mum-of-two was viciously attacked in her own home by two men posing as police officers.

The 31-year-old woman was punched in the face in front of her two sons aged just five and seven.

The victim answered the door at her home in Ochrewell Avenue, Deighton, to two Asian men claiming to be police officers investigating an incident.

The men pushed her into the house and attacked her, leaving her with two black eyes.

The robbers escaped with a large haul of Asian gold jewellery.

Huddersfield CID are investigating and appealed for information on the raid which happened at 11.30pm on Friday.

The two boys were shocked but unhurt.

Det Con Andy Clayton, of Huddersfield CID, said: “This was a very disturbing incident for the victim and her young children.

“However, these type of offences are rare and we do not believe there is any wider danger to people in the local area and we are investigating this incident as a targeted robbery.”

The suspects were both described as Asian men who spoke with Pakistani accents. The first suspect had a stocky build, was around 5ft 8in tall and was wearing a light coloured hooded top with white writing across the shoulder blades. He also wore black gloves and dark coloured trousers.

The second man was wearing a black top with the hood up, fastened across his face, and black trousers.

Det Con Clayton said: “I am appealing for any members of the public who may have seen anyone matching the descriptions in the area around the time of the incident to get in touch.

“I would also be keen to hear from anyone who may have been offered Asian jewellery for sale and harbours any suspicions about its origin.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Con Clayton on 101 or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously and in confidence, on 0800 555 111.

Head Teacher At Muslim ‘Free School’ Arrested For Fraud

Things aren’t going to well for the new Islamic schools, publicly funded as so called ‘free schools’. First was the scandal in Derby recently which was that bad ofsted inspectors closed it on the spot. Now the Muslim headteacher and founder of Kings Science Academy in Bradford has been arrested for fraud after a large chunk of the public’s cash given to the school disappeared.

For anybody unsure because of the school’s un-Islamic name that it is actually a Muslim school.  This added promotional video will erase any doubts. @11.00 mins

UPDATE: Head teacher arrested in fraud investigation at Kings Science Academy

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Sajid Hussain RazaBradford Telegraph and Argus: Sajid Hussain Raza

A man arrested on suspicion of fraud earlier today is believed to be the principal of Kings Science Academy in Lidget Green.

Police announced the arrest of a 41 year old man this morning in connection with an investigation into matters at a flagship Bradford free school.

Although they have yet to confirm his name, the man is understood to be the free school’s principal Sajid Hussain Raza.

West Yorkshire Police were called in to investigate the academy after auditors from the Department for Education found major failings in the school’s finances.

Three people were interviewed under caution last November about allegations of suspected fraud by false representation at the school.

Today, Detective Superintendent Lisa Griffin, head of crime for the Bradford District, said: “As part of West Yorkshire Police’s ongoing investigation into matters at Kings Science Academy, Bradford, a 41-year-old man has today been arrested at premises in Bradford and is currently being questioned in relation to suspected fraud offences.”

At about 3pm today, a police spokesman added: “Further to this morning’s update, a 41-year-old man has been released on bail pending further enquiries.”

AWOL Muslim Sentenced Over £800,000 VAT Fraud In His Absence

Just one of many Muslim scams being used to defraud the government and other businesses that indirectly the hardworking public ends up picking the bill up for. Mohammad Tanwir Khan managed to scam £850,000 over 7 years before getting caught.  Like so many Muslim criminals who are given bail despite the seriousness of their crimes. He did a disapearing act before sentencing. No doubt he will be back in Pakistan now living like a king off his ill gotten gains and laughing his head off.

Man sentenced over £800,000 VATMan sentenced over £800,000 VAT

A Stockport man who committed an £800,000 VAT repayment fraud by submitting over 350 false invoices was sentenced in absence today to three and half years jail at Manchester Crown Court.

Mohammad Tanwir Khan, aged 58, who featured on the HM Revenue and Customs ‘Most Wanted’ list two weeks ago, went on the run in May this year following his conviction for VAT fraud. A bench warrant for his arrest was issued in June 2013.

Khan of Bluestone Drive, Heaton Moor, had his business records scrutinised by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) investigators after anomalies with invoices for his import / export company were discovered during a VAT inspection in 2010.

Sandra Smith, Assistant Director of Criminal Investigation, HMRC, said: “HMRC officers identified suspicious trading by Khan’s company, Spearpoint Limited, when his paperwork did not match the true level of exports.

“During interviews he couldn’t justify or prove his business claims. He had been living off stolen VAT repayments for a number of years, using faked paperwork to fraudulently reclaim on average over £100,000 per year.

“Tax fraud and attempts to launder the proceeds of crime are treated extremely seriously by HMRC, and we will relentlessly pursue any individuals or crime gangs believed to be involved”.

Khan was charged with VAT fraud of over £817,000. In Manchester Crown Court seven years of fake invoicing was provided as evidence – including 389 false invoices submitted to HMRC between 2006 and 2011.

HMRC investigators discovered over 1,700 suspect documents on Khan’s computer, plus hundreds of blank invoices in his home office and garage in readiness for further fraud attempts.

Khan was the sole director of Spearpoint Limited, which claimed to regularly supply mechanical parts to clients, including the Pakistan Navy.

He sourced equipment from the UK and Europe and then exported them to clients in Pakistan. To justify the VAT repayments he falsified freight invoices from several defunct, bogus and genuine suppliers.

Some invoices were crudely amended with correcting fluid while others were photocopied or produced on home computer templates.

Most of the consignments did not exist or were for much smaller parts. He even altered and increased the weight of consignments on freight paperwork to give the impression of much larger consignments.

HMRC officers searched Khan’s home and arrested him in May 2011.

A detailed investigation followed and it became clear that he was vastly overstating the scale and cost of his company’s trading.

Khan now faces a confiscation hearing over his criminal profits.

He is still being hunted for his crimes. People can report leads on the Most Wanted fugitives via HMRC’s Customs, Excise and VAT fraud reporting hotline on 0800 595 000.

Fraudster Mohammed Khatana

Mohammed Khatana, A serial Muslim fraudster from Brierfield, Lancashire has been jailed for 8 and a half years for his latest con which he coined in a quarter of a million pounds conning people with his fake legal advice firm and fraudulently receiving. money from the legal aid pot which is indirectly funded by the hard working British taxpayer.   Mohammed Khatana,is no stranger to a prison cell after getting a 4years 9 months sentence in 2006 for a fraud which saw him make over a million pounds.

A father and daughter ran a £250,000 bogus firm offering legal services to criminals, a court heard.

Mohammed Khatana, 51, and Mahria Khatana, 24, of Hawkswood Gardens in Nelson, were arrested after a three year investigation into their scam.

Detectives found their two companies POCA Consulting Ltd and Ultima Consulting would fraudulently help clients on proceeds of crime and other criminal matters.

Despite having no qualifications in law or any accreditation to practice they would charge fees double what they would cost for proper legal representation.

Preston Crown Court heard father Mohammed would visit clients and arrange to transfer their legal aid to a solicitors firm at a rate of £500 for the referral.

The family team of con-artists were found guilty of defrauding a 74 year-old money launderer by billing him £43,000 for a service that should cost £10,000.

Devious daughter Mahria phoned a barristers firm in London to obtain quotes which she then doubled to con the man out of his own ill-gotten gains.

Mohammed was also found guilty of attempting to enter into a money laundering operation in April.

He was caught after an undercover officer posed as the girlfriend of a drug dealer who met with the bogus para-legal to obtain advice on how to launder money.

Det Supt Jason Hudson, of the North West Organised Crime Unit, called the conning pair “ruthless”.

Speaking after the trial he said: “Khatana was a ruthless serial fraudster who was prepared to use his daughter to steal from a wide range of individuals for his own gain.”

At Preston Crown Court Mohammed pleaded guilty to 15 counts of fraud and was jailed for eight-and-a-half years.

His daughter pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud and was sentenced to 12 months suspended for two years. She was also given 250 hours community service.

Chief Executive of the Legal Services Commission Matthew Coats said: “We worked very closely with the police in pulling together the compelling evidence for this case.

“Legal aid funding is public money and we will not tolerate people trying to defraud the taxpayer.”
