Just put him on a plane


APIZZA delivery driver who sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl has been jailed for seven-anda-half years. It was while delivering a takeaway that Mohammed Shahab Mahboubian, an Iranian immigrant, realised that three school friends were home alone. He then threatened one of them with physical violence if she refused to get in his car before driving her to a remote location and molesting her.

The Home Office will try to extradite him at the end of his sentence. But his lawyer yesterday spoke about how he had settled here with his family. Given that the European Convention on Human Rights enshrines the “right to a family life” it will be almost impossible to get rid of him.

After this methodical­ly planned, predatory and utterly perverse crime in a just world he would already be on a plane.
