Tommy Robinson has celebrated the jailing of 20 sex abusers – despite nearly causing their trial to collapse – after a grooming gang who targeted vulnerable girls as young as eleven in Huddersfield were jailed for a combined total of more than 220 years.
As with similar cases in a string of British towns and cities, the gang plied their victims – some of whom were as young as 11 – with alcohol or drugged them before carrying out horrific sex attacks.
The court heard evidence from 15 victims during the trials and the judge said he fears none of them will ever recover from their ordeals.
In victim statements the girls described coming into contact with the abusers after being bullied at school and said the relationship became ‘one of those things that you couldn’t get out of’.
EDL founder Robinson – who was jailed for contempt of court after posting a video in breach of reporting restrictions in May, a move which put the trial in jeopardy – claimed without providing evidence that one defendant on the run had fled to Pakistan.
The pattern of exploitation of mainly white girls by groups of men of mainly Pakistani heritage mirrors what has happened in a number of other towns around the country, including Rotherham, Rochdale and Telford.
The Leeds trials attracted protests by right wing groups and EDL founder Tommy Robinson, who was jailed for contempt for endangering one of the cases with social media posts. He has since been freed but faces another hearing.
