Brothers are jailed after threatening to kill man
A thug carried out a terrifying attack just nine days after a parole board ruled he was safe to be released from jail. Mohammed Kobir Uddin 32, from Wincheap, Canterbury had been given an indeterminate sentence in 2006 for a nasty robbery – meaning he would remain caged until the authorities ruled he no longer posed a threat to society.
But less than two weeks after gaining his freedom, he joined younger brother Mohamed Dobir Uddin, 26, of Ashford, in the attack to enforce a debt.
The pair tricked their victim Parwaz Dilsoz into their car and drove him around Folkestone making threats to kill him.
The 15-minute ordeal only ended when he tried to jump from the moving vehicle and eventually crawled on his hands and knees to a waiting police officer.
When police raided Dobir’s home in Ashford they found a shotgun, live cartridges and 250 ‘deals’ of crack cocaine.
Kobir, who was returned to prison under the old sentence, was given an eight-year extended jail sentence, which includes an immediate fiveyear term. He was convicted of false imprisonment.
Dobir, who was convicted of the same charge and having a shotgun, cartridges and the Class A drugs, was jailed for 14 years.
A jury at Canterbury Crown Court heard how in December 2012 the brothers held Mr Dilsoz against his will and assaulted him.
Prosecutor Ed Fowler said Dobir went to the home of Mr Dilsoz after a falling out between them.
“At first all seemed friendly and the two shook hands and Dobir then asked him to get into his car which he did.”
But in the car the brothers began arguing with him and threatened to drive him to London and kill him.
“Fortunately Mr Dilsoz saw a policeman as they were driving round and he was no in fear for his life.
He managed to kick the door open as Dobir climbed over and grabbed him by the throat.
“Mr Dilsoz was trying to get out of the car even though it was moving and he was being punched. By now he was desperately struggling and managed to get out.
“Police officers then arrived and could see someone’s leg poking out of the door and one of them shouted: ‘Police, what are you doing?’
“Kobir then stood up and Mr Dilsoz then crawled out of the car and explained to the officers that he had been held against his will. He was later taken to hospital,” he added.
The victim, speaking through an interpreter, told the jury: “I got into the car and Kobir grabbed me and told Dobs to drive off.
“Kobir was asking for between £520 and £560 but they didn’t tell me what for.
“I was holding my phone intending to dial 999 but I didn’t get a chance to dial.
“I tried very hard to open the door but at first it wouldn’t open. But next time it opened while we were driving and I put my leg out of the door while Kabir was holding my throat and beating me.
“When I got out of the car they tried to get me back inside. I was screaming. “
Judge Simon James told the brothers that the debt by Dilsoz was in some way associated with drugs.
“You then subjected your victim to a terrifying ordeal, taking him in a car to various parts of Folkestone. He was threatened that he would be killed and you told him you intended to take him to London where his body would be dumped.
“Such was the victim’s fear that he sought to escape by jumping from a moving car, thereby injuring himself further.
“Once outside the car you continued to restrain him until he literally crawled on hands and knees to police.
“Neither of you has shown any remorse and you clearly
