Abdul Rauf hadde en ledende rolle i den såkalte grooming-skandalen i Rochdale, som i prinsippet handlet om serievoldtekter på et nærmest industrielt nivå av unge, sårbare britiske jenter. Gjerningsmennene var i hovedsak pakistanske muslimer.

Rauf (51) ble dømt til seks år fengselsstraff, og i 2015 ble han fratatt sitt britiske statsborgerskap og utvist fra landet. Men seks år senere oppholder Rauf seg fortsatt  i Rochdale.

The convicted ringleader of a Rochdale grooming gang is walking freely around the very town where he abused young girls – six years after he was told he would be deported.

Qari Abdul Rauf, 51,  was jailed for six years for trafficking and sex with a girl, who was just 15.

He was freed on licence in 2014 but was told he faced deportation to Pakistan because he holds a dual-nationality passport.

Nå risikerer altså ofrene å støte på sin utviste overgriper i sentrum. I tillegg til Rauf ble hans medskyldige Abdul Aziz (50) and Adil Khan (51) også utvist fra Storbritannia, men ingen av de tre har forlatt landet.

All three are dual nationals, having moved to the UK from Pakistan but gaining British citizenship due to their time in the country.

Aziz carried the more sinister title of ‘the master’ and is a father of three. He was originally sentenced to nine years for trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sex with a child.

Adil Khan was given eight years for conspiracy and trafficking a 13-year-old girl who fell pregnant.

Det er avisen The Sun som har tatt bildene av Rauz på en matbutikk i Rochdale.

An onlooker said: “Perhaps he is working in a takeaway or as a food delivery driver.

“He used to ferry little girls around so his friends could have sex with them.

«Now he delivers fast food. It’s awful to think a victim could bump into him — or he knocks on their door to deliver some food.”

Saken omtales også av Daily Mail.

Gerald Clifton, the judge who jailed them at Liverpool Crown Court in May 2012, said victims were ‘raped callously, viciously and violently’.

As revealed by the Mail in June 2019, four of the group were still living in Britain, with no signs of any being prepared for deportation to Pakistan.
