Crime

Erm

Foreign shoplifters, thieves and drug dealers are to be deported rather than prosecuted as part of radical plans by the Justice Secretary to free up prison spaces.

Alex Chalk told The Telegraph that lower level foreign offenders will be spared jail and instead given “conditional cautions” under which they will be expelled and banned from returning to Britain.

Chris Philp, the policing minister, has been put in charge of delivering the deportation scheme which aims to reduce the 3,300 foreign prisoners on remand who have been charged but not yet convicted.

Why not just deport those convicted?

Oh, that’s right, because middle class women without enough children then stop the planes taking off, right?

Good

The former Post Office boss Paula Vennells has forfeited her CBE for “bringing the honours system into disrepute” over her handling of the Horizon crisis.

Vennells was named on Friday in a list published on the Cabinet Office website as an individual whose honour had been revoked by King Charles.

So, what’s the jail sentence gonna be?

Umm, what?

Cliff Mitchell, 24, was convicted of 10 counts of rape, three counts of rape of a child under 13, one count of kidnap and breach of a non-molestation order following a trial at Croydon Crown Court.

Thought molesting someone was a no no anyway. Why’d there be a court order to tell you not to?

OK, now for the next fight!

Police will be given new powers to block sex offenders from changing their names under plans announced by the Government on Wednesday.

Officers will be able to issue a notice to registered sex offenders, if they are judged to remain a risk, barring them from making such a change, or attempting to do so, on official documents such as passports and driving licences.

But what about gender recognition certificates? How horrifric could it be if a convicted criminal had to be deadnamed?

Expect cases in 3…2…1….

Yes, obviously

Triple killer Valdo Calocane is entitled to claim thousands of pounds in state benefits a year despite being detained in a secure hospital for his violent crimes, The Telegraph can reveal.

Calocane, 32, is eligible for Universal Credit payments of up to £360 a month after being sent to the high-security Ashworth Hospital in Merseyside rather than being jailed.

Prisoners are banned from claiming state benefits, but most convicted criminals ordered by the courts to receive treatment as patients in secure psychiatric hospitals remain eligible for welfare payments.

Because the court has decided – however well or badly – that he’s not criminally responsible for the crimes. He’s ill, not evil.

Yes, yes, we can all argue that that’s not the case and so on. But that is what has been decided. Therefore all those other rights remain with him.

Given the court decision we should no more stop his benefits than we should stop those of someone stuck in traction for 6 months because of a broken spine.

Erm, what?

An American woman who pleaded guilty to helping kill her own mother and stuffing the body in a suitcase during a luxury vacation in Bali was on Wednesday sentenced to 26 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors had recommended a 28-year prison sentence for Heather Mack for conspiring with her boyfriend to kill Sheila von Wiese-Mack in 2014.

Mack’s attorney, Michael Leonard, said he expects Mack, 28, will be locked up for roughly 20 years including good behaviour credits available to all federal prisoners. His estimate also accounts for the judge giving Mack credit for the two-plus years she spent in custody in Chicago after completing a jail term in Indonesia. She was deported to the US in 2021.

OK. Murder takes place in Indonesia. Convicted, served sentence. What in buggery is happening when the Feds charge her again?

Yes, I know, douvble jeopardy onoly means in US courts. But still. What are they doing here?

The shame of Ramsay El-Nakla, 36

Friends and acquaintances of Ramsay El-Nakla, 36, are said to be shunning him and deciding whether he might be allowed to stay in the business. There’s even talk that he might need to be deported for the general health of the country.

“If we’d known then what we know now we’d never have allowed it” said Stephen Stewart, 50.

“How could he try to work with us given this?” demanded Victoria McGowan, 41.

In a joint statement they said “How can this be allowed? There must be a law about it. The services so vital to Scotland’s economy and society must be proteced from vileness like this. ”

Over the weekend it was revealed that the brother in law of Ramsay El-Nakla is Humza Yousaf, First Minister of Scotland.

“You go to work supplying the needs of customers, an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay, and then find out that one of the people you work with is involved in politics. I feel all dirty now” said Ms. McGowan.

Ahhh…..

Eleven people have been charged by a Swedish court in what is being billed as potentially the country’s worst environmental crime in half a century.

NMT Think Pink – a previously celebrated waste management company known for its trademark pink rubbish bags – is accused of illegally burying and dumping tens of thousands of tonnes of waste at 21 sites across 15 municipalities around Sweden, in what prosecutors described as a “very serious crime”.

Harmful levels of arsenic, dioxins, lead, zinc, copper and petroleum products were found during the investigation. Three years ago, parts of Stockholm were shrouded in smoke caused by a fire in an abandoned rubbish heap run by the company.

At the centre of the case is successful entrepreneur Bella Nilsson – who previously crowned herself the “queen of trash” and has since changed her name to Fariba Vancor – and her ex-husband, Thomas Nilsson.

There’s a pic of her and a – terribly uncharitable of course – thought was, well, she doesn’t look very Swedish.

Bella Nilsson , registered Fariba Juliette Jennifer Vancor , originally Isabella Khatibi Ghabagh Tappeh, born December 15, 1969 in Tehran , is a Swedish former stripper and porn club manager and former entrepreneur in the waste industry . [ 1 ] [ 2 ]

Ah.

We’ve long known that, on average, immigrants bring with them the fertility rates of their home country. More recent research tells us that they also seem to bring varied other cultural attitudes – like the regard for the law and so on.

It’s tax evation wot does it though, innit?

Colonialism, tax evasion by multinationals, the disgusting racism of the terms of trade:

Nigeria’s former central bank governor has been accused of stashing £543 million in UK accounts and stealing £5 million from the vaults of the bank.

Godwin Emefiele, who took control of the central bank of Africa’s largest economy in 2014, kept 593 bank accounts in Britain, the US and China, according to an investigation that began after he was suspended in May.

If only those governments of the newly emerging nations had more power and more money then everything would be better, right?

This is fun

A powerful cardinal has been sentenced to five-and-a-half years in jail for embezzlement over the purchase of a former Chelsea car showroom that cost the Vatican tens of millions of euros.

Cardinal Angelo Becciu, 75, once touted as a future pope, was convicted of a range of financial crimes at the end of a two-and-a-half-year trial that exposed corruption at the heart of the Holy See.

A former chief of staff to Pope Francis, he now has the dubious distinction of being the first cardinal ever to face a criminal trial before a Vatican tribunal.

So the trial was under Vatican law, in a Vatican court. Presumably the sentence will be served in a Vatican prison. So, where’s that?

Not getting it quite right

Put trans criminals in female jails to help with their gender identity, says Scottish prison service
Even those with a history of violence against women could be housed in women’s prisons to prepare for life afterwards

It’s an abject failure to understand reality, isn’t it?

Someone in for rape should be packed down with the birds in for TV licence non-payment so they can learn how to do their lippie right?

Isn’t this fun

The attacker, who cannot be named because he was 17 at the time, had a sexist epithet engraved on his 17-inch machete and carried a note promoting violence against women.

Judge Suhail Akhtar sentenced the attacker to life in prison on Tuesday, with no chance of parole for at least 10 years.

The judge had ruled that the attack on the massage parlour, Crown Spa, amounted to an act of terrorism due to its links to “incel” ideology, which stands for “involuntary celibate”.

The Canadians calling Hamas terrorists yet or not?

1989?

A former Penthouse magazine model sued Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose on Wednesday, claiming he raped her in a 1989 attack at a New York hotel that left her with anxiety and depression and harmed her career.

Everyone’s going to get a fair trial at this late date, right?

Horror as French copper found to actually do work

Calais migrant police chief off ‘sick’ for 14 years while he played golf and went swimming
Damning report accuses Luc-Noël Larcher of being in ‘fictitious employment’ and not cracking down on migrants seeking to reach the UK

No, no, that’s not what they’re worried about at all.

While colleagues got on with the work, he spent most of his time enjoying his “passion for golf, which he practices daily,” CRS investigators are cited as saying. As a result, many colleagues didn’t even know what he looked like. When he did travel to the northern French port, when his company was sent there, he stayed in a separate hotel from his colleagues.

Inspectors found that he “spends his mornings in his room, starts the day at noon, possibly carries out some administrative tasks, then devotes almost all of his afternoons to playing golf or swimming in the pool. And this continues until the end of the week.”

#Carrying out administrative tasks, that’s what he’s being done for. How Dare He?

This doesn’t work for me

Others are less sure. As someone who has spent more than a decade investigating Kinahan, I’ve come to view his story as not merely one of illicit enterprise; it’s an odyssey of power, learning and ruthless resourcefulness that appears to know no bounds. His stratospheric rise is not an accident: it was driven by greed, daring, the utilisation of violence and an ability to cultivate powerful friends in corrupt regimes and manipulate the international financial sector and the underworld. This is the inside story of how one man built a €1 billion criminal empire.

OK, maybe the empire’s a billion.

It’s hard to overstate the scale of Kinahan’s operation. He and his cartel control much of the cocaine imports into Europe, as well as arms smuggling and money laundering around the world.

If they control much of Europe’s cocaine imports then they’re very much bigger than €1 billion. If they’re €1 billion then they don’t control most of Europe’s cocaine imports.

Thus there’s a limit to how much of this story I’m going to believe.

Magic wands, eh?

Witches and wizards’ paedophile gang found guilty of running child sex abuse ring
Group told children their ‘magic wands’ would turn them into ‘cats and dogs’, High Court in Glasgow heard

Hmm.

A woman who used to be in a relationship with one of those convicted said: “I hope they get the book thrown at them. I do not condone violence, but I really hope, when they get sentenced, they will get what is coming to them. Karma gets you.”

Everybody likes to feel superior to at least someone and in prison that’s everyone except the paedos…..

Really? Did they?

Fraudulent BLM activists hoodwinked the British establishment
Lessons must be taken on board from the era of BLM-mania. Attempts to frame Britain as irredeemably racist should never be tolerated again

Gosh, reminds of Ms. Batjellybaby, doesn’t it?
