The convicted rapist still allowed to drive a Bradford taxi

Whats going on?

It seems the recent Muslim grooming cases which have finally came to light are the 'tip of the iceberg' - would you be comfortable with your daughter/sister/niece getting into a Muslim driven taxi after a night out?

Thanks to the commenter 'passerby' for these articles.

The Yorkshire post reports - A BRADFORD taxi driver with a conviction for rape was revealed today to be still driving his cab around the city, after council chiefs failed in an attempt to revoke his licence.
Bradford Council admitted it had been unable to revoke the licence after the driver appealed in court to get it back(sic).

The case came to light after a member of the public made a freedom of information request to the council, which also disclosed that 31 other Bradford cabies have serious criminal convictions for violence.

Of the 3,006 drivers in the Bradford district, 29 have been convicted for actual bodily harm, two for grievous bodily harm and one for rape.

A Bradford Council spokesman said: "The Council refused to renew the licence for the one driver with a rape conviction, but he successfully appealed in court." Read more

And in Australia

The Sunday Morning Herald reports - An 18-year-old woman who was raped by a taxi driver on her way home after a night out with friends was a virgin who had recently moved to Sydney.

At the time of the attack, "Jay" (not her real name), believed she was gay.

She had spent a night out at the Flinders Hotel in Darlinghurst with girlfriends and had travelled home alone to Oyster Bay at 12.30am on Sunday, November 4, last year.

The court has heard that she was in a drunken state when she caught a taxi home and at times dozed off.

Md Kowsar Ali, 23, a part-time Combined Taxi driver who had come to live in Australia from Bangladesh to study accountancy, told police the intercourse that took place in the back seat of his cab that rainy morning was consensual.

But a jury of nine men and three women - who were not told of Jay's sexual history, took two hours and 10 minutes today to convict him of raping her in Mobbs Crescent, Beverley Park near Kogarah.

Ali was arrested near Hurstville Railway Station 15 minutes after a weeping and distraught Jay phoned the triple-0 emergency line.

He initially told police that he had only touched her on the groin and right breast with her consent.

The jury convicted him of two counts of indecently assaulting her but acquitted him of having robbed her of $100.

Ali sat impassively as the verdict was read to Judge Peter Berman. Read more

Who imported them to do this to our children?
Who controls the poison-spewing media?

You must not watch this -

Who is the Nulabour leader and what is his family history?

You must not ask.
