Thirteen Somali Men Convicted of Running Bristol Sex Ring That Targeted Vulnerable British Girls as Young as 13

Paul Gallagher, Independent, November 27, 2014

More than a dozen Somali men have been convicted of running an inner city sex ring where vulnerable British girls as young as 13 were abused, raped and forced into prostitution in the latest appalling case of organised abuse to blight yet another city.

Gang members used colourful nicknames such as Left Eye, Magic and Trigger to impress teenage girls in Bristol who were groomed for so long they believed sexual abuse was simply another part of a loving relationship they thought they had with the men.

The victims were passed around the gang’s friends for as little as £30 or “rewarded” with alcohol, drugs or gifts to perform sex acts on older men in a horrifying catalogue of abuse with echoes of cases already effecting Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford and several other areas across England.

In perhaps the worst incident one 13-year-old girl was raped four times by three different men having been trafficked across the city to a Premier Inn by one of her abusers. Police were alerted to her plight in December 2012 but the girl feared for her life so initially refused to speak out.

In May 2013 Avon and Somerset police launched Operation Brooke after a 14-year-old girl was found hiding in her underwear in a cupboard under a sink at a flat in Easton where her older sister was the tenant. A council outside Bristol who placed the older girl there on her own was heavily criticised by the judge as the property was taken over as a sex and drugs den by the gang who abused the sisters and another of their friends. She had befriended the Somali men after buying cannabis from them and it was not long before the gang were using her flat to sell drugs and have sex with her.

The local authority, which cannot be named, launched a serious case review to discover why the girl, described as having a chaotic life, had been left almost unsupervised by social workers even though staff had “very real concerns” about her. Officials tried to persuade the teenager to leave Bristol but the girl refused and because she was under a Section 20 care order, also known as voluntary accommodation, the council could not force her to leave.

Fourteen Somalis aged between 20 and 24 were convicted in two separate trials of charges including rape, sexual activity with a child, facilitating child prostitution, trafficking, paying for the sexual services of a child and drug offences.

Some of the victims in Bristol were persuaded to have sex with their boyfriends’ friends as it was Somali “culture and tradition” and “men always have sex with each other’s girlfriends”. Legal restrictions were lifted today to allow reporting of both trials.

Liban Abdi, aka Left Back, 21, Mustapha Greens Farah, 21, Arafat Left Eye Osman, 20, Idleh Sniper Osman, 22, Abdulahi Trigger Aden, 20, Said Zakaria, 22, Mustafa Deria, 22, and Deria’s cousin Mohamed Magic Jama, 20, were all jailed for between 18 months and 13 years for either child sexual exploitation or drugs offences in the first trial at Bristol Crown Court.

Judge Michael Roach spoke out at the conclusion of the two-month trial questioning a decision which led to the girl being raped and prostituted by Somali drug dealers.

Convicting the men Judge Michael Roach said: “I know that the drug trade in Bristol blights many parts of the city. It ruins the lives of many, not just the users but also their families and their dependants. It has been said many times before–and it is true–it is a filthy trade.”

Referring to the 16-year-old girl he said: “She was a very troubled girl. Save for limited supervision she was left to her own devices without the support of her family and friends. She didn’t know Bristol or the city at all. On the evidence she was very isolated. Consequently within a day or two of her arrival she fell prey to these defendants and their associates.

“They took considerable advantage of her. I hope there will be an opportunity for the authorities to reconsider their thinking behind such a placement because it has, on any retrospective view, added considerably to the damage of that young person.”

Judge Roach added: “Girls of her age, whatever their experience, need the protection of the law. The treatment of her in my judgement was extremely serious.”

The girl’s five-month ordeal finally ended when police arrived at the house looking for a 14-year-old runaway–known as Girl B for legal reasons–who had gone to the flat because she her the sister, identified as Girl A, was the tenant.

Ms Vigars said: “[Girl B] was very upset, in tears, with her makeup running down her face. She said to the police ‘they made me do stuff’. She said that one of the men had forced himself on her, he had raped her.”

Girl A described to detectives one occasion where she had sex with a man who later refused to pay. She said: “Sometimes I couldn’t even be bothered to fight or argue for it because it’s hard to tell them at the end of the day ‘No I don’t want to do it’ but half the time I did.

“Half the time I didn’t really want it for the money, I just wanted someone to be there. Even though I know they were using me for sex and that, sometimes it’s just nice to be close to someone, do you know what I mean?”

Zakaria, whose nickname was Target, and six other men – Mohamed Jumale, 24, his brother Omar Jumale, 20, Mohamed Dahir, 22, Jusuf Abdizirak, 20, Abdirashid Abdulahi, 21 and Sakariah Sheik, 21–were convicted of the grooming and subsequent sexual abuse of four young girls in Bristol at the second trial. They will be sentenced on Friday. Two defendants, Jibril Mohamed, 21, and Dauud Osman, 19, were acquitted.

The chair of Bristol Somali Forum Muna Ali said she was “shocked and saddened” by the “evil” abuse. She said: “There are a lot of cases going on across the country. This case is no different. I am hoping people will look at this as a crime and not just a crime for the Somali community. I would love for you to look at it as criminal, not Somali criminal. The community is deeply shocked and shaken by the outcome of this case. They are unforgivable acts of cruelty against the most vulnerable members of our community.”

Anna Vigars, prosecuting, told the jury in the second trial: “Some of those girls knew each other, some didn’t, some had heard of each other. But what these girls have in common is that they were used by these men for sex.

“It is about the defendants simply using the girls to satisfy themselves whenever they felt like it, doing it so often that no doubt it began to feel normal as far as these girls were concerned. There are elements of exhibitionism too with sex taking place in front of other people in the group. Much of it is sordid, none of it is romantic.”

One victim was 11 years old when Mohamed Jumale first began grooming her after the pair met on Facebook. She lost her virginity to Jumale before he ordered her to have sex with his brother Omar and two other men under a bridge by a B&Q car park in Bristol.

The girl described how she would go to the house in Easton with a girlfriend because “we had nothing else to do” and met Zakaria, who claimed he was 14, on a number of occasions.

She told the court: “When I first meet people I am always a bit scared and this time it was me and my friend and we were in a room with six other boys. It was a bit scary.”

The girls went to the house on around 20 occasions from October 2012 and would listen to music, smoke cannabis, chew the stimulant khat, which is popular in the Horn of Africa, and chat with the men.

Her friend, who was a prosecution witness, would smoke cannabis, though the girl did not, and have sex with men in the house, Bristol Crown Court heard. All the girls were able to give evidence via videolink so they did not have to face their abusers in court with volunteers from the court’s Victim Support unit to support them.

The girl said: “I think sometimes they might have been getting money from having sex from her. If they would run out of weed that’s when she would have sex with them. That’s when they would get weed.

“I didn’t want to be a mess like my friend when she smoked weed and I just didn’t want to end up like that, having sex with people. I didn’t want to have sex with anyone. She looked so tired after.”

  • They tried to pass off Rotherham (Pakistani Muslims) as a one off unrelated to Islam.

    Now we have Somalian Muslims caught doing the same thing.

    Non-white Muslims can do a country bad.

    • propagandaoftruth

      It’s how they roll dawg.

      Libtard education = White Genocide

    • Sparky

      The “Devil made me do it.” Right.

    • Anna Tree

      First generation white muslims may be immuned and be only Trojan horses, but second generation do bad as well, like murdering those two Canadians a couple of weeks ago.

      Like with whites of any religious or not ideologies, as soon as their ideologies precede their race, they are potential or actual anti-white.

    • MBlanc46

      Or, it could be that they’re non-white.

  • John Smith

    This should be news throughout the white world.

    But the filthy creatures who run the anti-white media cabal will ensure a blackout.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      They are the same folks who demonize Putin and Russia. Is there some kind of an anti-white agenda, perchance?

  • JSS

    White Londoners are out protesting on behalf of St Brown meanwhile.

    • Speedy Steve

      I simply don’t get that. It’s got to organized by worldwide communism, which naturally makes me sound like a cold war paranoiac.

    • superlloyd

      Only a thousand of the usual, left wing student idiot types. A very small protest but blown up out of all proportion by the media. And, of course, the innocent victim/ racist police narrative is being hard sold by that same media.

    “Victims were told prostitution is part of Somali “culture and tradition.”

    They should keep their sick “culture and traditions” in the countries they came from and go back there if they want to keep doing that. It has no place in Britain or anywhere else in Europe and all other Westernized countries.

  • JohnEngelman

    Somalies are black and Moslem. A black Moslem cannot figure out whether to rob a store, or to blow it up in the name of Islam.

  • Steven Barr

    If it was in Bristol then the girls were probably black. Somalis don’t like Christian blacks.

  • ViktorNN

    The U.S., the U.K., France, Sweden, Netherlands, etc. – the white working class is on its own when it comes to being preyed on by non-white exploiters.

    I am angry at the white adults at the head of these dysfunctional broken white families which put their children at risk, but I am even more angry at this anti-white system which imports these animals and leave us completely unprotected from them.

  • Sick of it

    “She had befriended the Somali men after buying cannabis from them and it
    was not long before the gang were using her flat to sell drugs and have
    sex with her.”

    The girl said: “I think sometimes they might have been getting money
    from having sex from her. If they would run out of weed that’s when she
    would have sex with them. That’s when they would get weed.

    “I didn’t want to be a mess like my friend when she smoked weed and I
    just didn’t want to end up like that, having sex with people. I didn’t
    want to have sex with anyone. She looked so tired after.”

    I again reiterate that drugs and drug-heads have no place in white society. These are the people who destroy us from within.

    • Da Troof

      We need to pause civilization and have a few years of anarchy. Let darwinism run its course.

  • See The Future

    England has passed the point of no return. It is only a matter of time before the British Isles becomes an official Islamic state. Who would have ever believed the British people would continue to vote for those that have completely sold them out. The time to act was when Enoch Powell spoke. If you are white and live in England, sell out and move. Most of Europe is in the same critical mess.

    • Veritas

      “If you are white and live in England, sell out and move.” Move where? The same third world invasion is taking place throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Instead of running away, it is time for whites to make a stand politically, and take back their own countries.

      • Daniel

        Amen

      • See The Future

        I agree fewer and fewer places to go. But Europe is done. There is still hope in the USA. I agree about stand and fight, but a stand of one does not count much. The British are unarmed.

    Make them chew Qat laced with paraquat.

    Whenever footage of so-called ‘desperate refugees’ is shown on the television, various personages such as politicians and the pope try very very hard to try to ‘guilt trip’ the western public into accepting the bogus ‘refugees’ for permanent settlement into western lands.
    Somalis are perhaps the biggest fakers and conmen of them all, for too long the brainless, witless political trash that runs the west has invited Somalis in because the fools are ‘sorry, for them.
    Well, the moral of this story is, don’t feel ‘sorry’ Somalis, whatever you do, never but never allow them to set foot in your homelands.

  • superlloyd

    Love your screen name. Hilarious.

  • See, the liberals are right after all – it is not right for people to focus solely on Pakistani Muslim men: because a whole shower of other non-whites / Muslims are doing it too!

    It is obviously just a bit of rich and vibrant ‘diversity’ in the drugging, raping and prostitution of our children, there’s nothing to see here other than ‘criminals’ who could have been anybody, but just happen to be non-white Muslims again, so just move along and don’t even think of blaming whole communities or multiracial societies…..and never forget, if it wasn’t for these people our country would collapse in a heap!

    In fact, we ought to be thankful that we are being outnumbered in our own land and that our future generations are being nastily defiled with savages in the process. Quick, look over there on twitter, somebody has called somebody else ‘a poof’! Outrageous! Right troops, let’s get into action!

    {I think that is the underlying liberal consensus on the matter}.

    • Who Me?

      Yes, we all know there are regrettably some white pedophiles. However very few of them go into it in wholesale, mass quantities like the Muslims seem to.

    • Daniel

      You are a politically correct, pussified , liberal douchebag.
      “Guys” like you are really the problem.
      What about this………you let me shoot the Muslim sex slavers……and I’ll shoot all your white pedophile friends too…..deal?
      You can come on out to Wyoming USA and talk to me anytime…..consider it a standing invitation.

  • Massif1

    These people from Africa, Middle East, Asia, and some parts of Eastern Europe are never going to integrate into Western Societies. Politicians need “able bodies” to work in the system and pay taxes so that the world can revolve. Unfortunately, 3rd worlders are not adjusting to that life. Do you think a man from Somalia can become a blue collar worker if he never worked a day in his life? The French stopped importing dark skinned Africans after learning that they prefer to rape and pillage instead of working 4 hours a day like all French.

  • Sloppo

    “Victims were told prostitution is part of Somali “culture and tradition.” ”

    Perhaps British and other European men need to reestablish the “culture and tradition” which used to eliminate that kind of criminal.

    • ViktorNN

      Exactly. Our response should be “the community that the victims were from responded by saying that harshly punishing and expelling sexual predators is part of their tradition.”

  • Francis Miville

    Lynching raping negroes and enjoying the party is part of my time-old tradition, too.

  • Daniel

    UKIP should take these Muslim rape trials and crucify the other parties into submission.
    They have an unchallengeable high ground from which to destroy the Labour party in particular.
    They should do it.
    Cameron is already acting like the whipped lapdog he is. UKIP needs to make him an offer he can’t refuse.
    The police officers who collaborated with Muslim sex slavery operations need to be made an example of.
    If British citizens need to be re-armed to defend their communities…….that should happen.
    We fought two wars against them to have and keep our Second Amendment. I’ll bet the British citizens wish they had one now.
