A judge has branded a migrant sex offender who abused a teenage girl in a public park a ‘scourge’ – but he will spend little time behind bars.
Delovan ‘Najeed’ Najeeb, 38, attacked his 16-year-old victim at Piccadilly Gardens in multicultural Manchester in 2021 after stalking her in the city center, forcing her to relive the harrowing experience twice by refusing to pleading guilty and then appealing Judge Alan Conrad QC described as having “no merit”.
Judge Conrad said the migrant had made ‘nothing constructive or useful’ to British society during his time in the UK – ‘On the contrary, you simply drank to excess and committed an offense after another, resulting in a waste of resources. you who could have been much better used for more deserving cases.
One of his offenses was another assault in ‘nearly identical circumstances’ to those Judge Conrad had ruled on – raising questions as to why he was still in the country in the first place, and why his final sentence is only three years.
(It is unlikely that he will actually serve his full prison sentence, as all felons sentenced to terms other than “life imprisonment” are eligible for halfway or, more rarely, two-thirds early release of their sentence, usually automatically.)

“When you came to me and grabbed me, I felt terrified. By the way, you had your arm around me, I couldn’t run away and I was trapped,” said the victim of Najeeb in court, in remarks quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“I was a child, and you, a grown man, tricked me. You could do whatever you wanted with me. I couldn’t leave and you knew it, it made me sick,” she added.
She also criticized the predator for not having pleaded guilty, which would have saved him from having to recount his abuse in court, or even to force him to do so a second time by appealing.
“In court, I had to be questioned and questioned about the ordeal you put me through, because you didn’t want to admit what you had done. While I was doing this, what did you do? You made fun of me,” she recalls.
“Listening to how you scared me and violated me, you didn’t feel any pity or remorse, you thought it was funny. It was so horrible to have to go through it all again with you laughing of me.
Judge Conrad confirmed that he had “heard the appeal before the magistrates and it was obvious to all of us that your appeal was without merit”.
“You are a scourge on the city center,” he added.
Whether Najeeb will eventually be deported after serving his last short sentence remains to be seen, but the UK government’s record of enforcing removals is not good and has steadily worsened.
