Ahdel ‘Eddie’ Ali led brutal Telford child trafficking gang targetting young British girls
The leader of a sick child trafficking gang, that targets young British girls to rape, pimp, and kill, has been released from prison early after serving just eight years of a 26-year sentence.
Ahdel “Eddie” Ali is the leader of the notorious Telford “grooming” gang known for raping and pimping children as young as 11.
32-year-old Ali was sentenced to a 26-year extended jail sentence.
His term included 18 years’ immediate custody and an additional eight years on license after release.
As with most British sentences, however, the headline numbers have proven misleading.
The child rapist ringleader’s rights to automatic early release on license and other anti-prison provisions have now kicked in well before he had served even a single decade behind bars.
Since the 1980s, at least 1,000 children – some as young as 11 – are feared to have been drugged and abused by perverts in Telford, Shropshire in northern England.
But their nightmare ordeal went on for decades as authorities repeatedly failed to stamp out a network of pedophiles in the town, according to The Sun.
Several young victims have been killed after being targetted by the gang.
Vulnerable Lucy Lowe was 16 when abuser Azhar Ali Mehmood, 26, set fire to her house, killing her, her mum Eileen and sister Sarah, 17, in 2000.
The taxi driver first targeted her in 1997.
She was 14 when she gave birth to his daughter.
He was jailed for killing the teen, along with her mum Eileen and her sister Sarah, 17 – but was never arrested or charged over sex abuse.
Another victim, who was drugged and gang-raped, said Lucy’s killing was a warning to others who might speak out.
The schoolgirl, who remains anonymous, said she was driven to attempt suicide.
In 2002 another schoolgirl – Becky Watson, 13 – was killed in an unexplained car accident in the Shropshire town.
Despite the crash being recorded at the time as a “prank” gone wrong, it later emerged she had reportedly been abused by an Asian grooming gang since she was 11.
Becky’s friend Vicky Round was abused by the same gang, who got her hooked on crack cocaine at 12 and heroin by 14.
Ahdel Ali and brother Mubarek Ali — who has also been released after serving a tiny fraction of a supposedly 22-year term — led a gang including five other predators believed to have abused around 100 girls in Telford, Shropshire, from 2006 to 2009, according to Breitbart.
One victim of the city’s gangs describes her experience as “a whirlwind of rape every day, basically.”
The Alis and their gang were convicted for offenses including rape, controlling child prostitution, and human trafficking.
However, the whole gang is now likely back on the streets.
The Alis’ fellow gang members were all sentenced to (also notional) terms of just two-and-a-half to seven years.
The authorities have not always bothered to consult with or even inform rape gang victims before releasing their abusers.
Rapists are often released to the same areas where they committed the abuse, with some victims even running unexpectedly into the abusers the government had pledged to deport while out in public.
The government has given no indication as to whether or not Ali might be eligible for deportation, or if it will bother to make an effort to remove him if he is.
