According to this article in the Telegraph, “Police arrest 12 people in Barking in connection with terror attack”.
And then what? There were people arrested after Manchester as well. I’m not seeing the headlines that indicate what sort of punishment was meted out. And I know that the UK is perfectly happy to let criminals go free after having served little ot no time.
Of the nine men convicted over the scandal in 2012, only Shabir Ahmed, 64, who was caged for 22 years, and Mohammed Sajid, 40, who was jailed for 12 years, remain behind bars.
Mohammed Amin, 50; Abdul Qayyum, 49; and Hamid Safi, 27, were all jailed for five years or less and have now completed their sentences.
Adil Khan, 47; Abdul Rauf, 48; Abdul Aziz, 46; and Kabeer Hassan, 30, are all believed to have been released on licence after going beyond the half-way point of their sentences.
Bonus comment from that article above:
Greater Manchester Police and the Crown Prosecution Service came under fire for how they handled reported claims of rape and abuse and have since apologised.
