Note that the prosecution barristers, one a Queen’s Counsel, reported that the mob of supporters, which included women as well as men, began a slow hand clap, calling them “corrupt” and “whores,” and telling them: “Hope you get raped.”
The police were informed and took the names of those involved — compare and contrast the action of the police in recent/ongoing contempt proceedings against those who dare criticize Islam.
Asian sex gang supporters threaten to rape female lawyers
SUPPORTERS of a depraved Asian sex gang targeted two female prosecutors outside a court room, hurling abuse and telling them: “Hope you get raped.”
By Paul Jeeves, The Express, March 2, 2019:
The aggressive and threatening behaviour came at the end of a sixweek trial at Bradford Crown Court which saw nine paedophiles being jailed for a total of 132 years earlier this week. Prosecution barrister Kama Melly QC and junior counsel Sharon Beattie were heckled and verbally abused inside the court building late on Tuesday afternoon after the defendants had been found guilty. Miss Melly said around 10 people had hung around the public concourse area.
The lawyers were the last to leave the courtroom when they spotted the group waiting at the top of a stairwell.
Miss Melly said the mob, including men and women, began a slow hand clap, calling them “corrupt”, “tramps” and telling them: “Hope you get raped”.
They immediately returned to the court offices and informed officials of the abuse.
Police were called and the angry mob had their names taken and were barred from attending Wednesday’s sentencing hearing.
West Yorkshire Police is considering criminal charges.
Ms Melly said: “It was absolutely appalling behaviour on their part.
“We should be able to do our jobs in the pursuit of justice without having to take such shocking forms of abuse.”
Trial judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, the Recorder of Bradford, described the targeting of the barristers as “absolutely outrageous”.
He said: “The powers that be must take action. These are members of the independent Bar who have just done their job.” After the guilty verdicts the men’s relatives had screamed angry abuse from the public gallery until police and security guards removed them.
Throughout the case some defendants had to be warned about their conduct and there was aggressive behaviour by some of their families.
The gang were convicted of raping and abusing two 14-year-old girls they enticed away from a care home.
Ringleader Basharat Khaliq, 38, was jailed for 20 years, while seven other men were jailed for between 18 months and 20 years for an array of charges including rape.
