Sex at­tacker given £110k

Daily Mail - - One Day To Go ... -

SEX at­tacker Aliou Bah was given £110,000 com­pen­sa­tion for be­ing locked up for 21 months af­ter his own coun­try re­fused to take him back.

Mak­ing the award, Judge Ni­cholas Madge said he ‘whole­heart­edly’ agreed that many would think his vic­tims should get pay­outs in­stead.

Bah came to the UK in 2007 from Guinea to join his refugee fa­ther. Four years later, he pleaded guilty to sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a 16-year-old girl and was jailed for 18 months.

He was also jailed for two years for an­other sexual assault three years later.

But last year, the High Court ruled Bah, 28, was held un­law­fully as there was lit­tle prospect of de­port­ing him.

Of­fi­cials in Guinea had re­fused to process his case and an­other ob­sta­cle was that Bah had been granted per­mis­sion to stay in the UK as a refugee.
