BRIGHTON TAXI DRIVER GETS SEVEN AND A HALF YEARS FOR SEXUAL ASSAULTS ON PASSENGER


A taxi driver who sexually assaulted a woman passenger on a late night journey home from Brighton has been sent to prison. Mansour Sangsary, 64, from, Hove, was given a prison sentence totalling seven and a half years when he appeared at Brighton Crown Court on Thursday 29 July, having been convicted in June after a six-day trial of four counts of sexual assault. He will also be a registered sex offender indefinitely and was given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) to last until further court order, prohibiting him from any employed or voluntary driving, other than of people known to


him on a purely social basis. Sangsary, a Bright- on & Hove licensed taxi driver at the time, was in his cab when it was hailed by the woman, 38, outside a club in Brighton, in the early hours of Sunday 19 May 2019, and he drove towards Worthing where she lives. However towards the end of the journey he repeatedly sexually assault- ed her and she was only able to get away when the taxi was near her home.


Det Con Angela Harvey of the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Investigations Unit said: “We immediately began enquiries, and CCTV and ANPR, together with information from the victim and witnesses, soon led us to Sangsary.” A Brighton local trade representative commented: “We are appalled at this terrible crime and offer our sincere apologies to the victim and our thanks to Sussex Police for bringing this vile man to justice. We hope that our council controlled CCTV for the protection of the public and drivers that is installed in every licensed vehicle in the city helped to bring evidence against him.”


EIGHT YEARS FOR PREDATORY NEWCASTLE CABBIE WHO SUBJECTED DRUNK STUDENT TO SERIOUS SEX ATTACK


A cabbie who preyed on a drunk student by subjecting her to a serious sex attack has been jailed for eight years. Bozlul Hoque picked up the 20-year- old in Newcastle city centre when she became separated from her friends. Instead of taking her home, he took her to a secluded street and molested her. Newcastle Crown Court heard the attack has ruined her life and and left her suffering nightmares and she has been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder. In a victim impact statement, Hoque’s victim said: “I can’t help wondering how many other single drunk females have climbed into his taxi like me and suffered similar things. I doubt I was the first but I hope I will be the last.” The court heard the victim's memory of what happened is hazy but she remem- bers becoming aware of what he was doing, pulling his hand away and noticing her underwear was missing. She was so drunk she couldn't stand up and vomited after getting to her

friend's home. Police managed to track down Hoque as the culprit by analys- ing CCTV in the city centre. Swabs also found his DNA in the victim’s body. The 44-year-old, Arthurs Hill, New- castle, pleaded guilty to sexual assault by penetration. He was jailed for eight years - of which he must serve up to two-thirds in custody - and was made subject to an indefinite restraining order and must sign the sex offenders register indefi- nitely. Recorder Tom Moran said the victim should have been able to trust Hoque to get her home safely. "Instead, you saw the opportunity to sexually abuse her and in doing so, abused your trusted position as a taxi


driver," the judge said. "She was confused, didn't know where she was and was petrified. "You selected her once you saw the state she was in as someone who was likely to be too drunk to resist." The judge said the victim later recalled Hoque instructing her in an aggressive tone of voice to remove her underwear. He added that there was "severe psychological harm". After the case, Detective Constable Joe Birkett said: “He was a licensed taxi driver who had undergone vulnerability training and was in a position of trust. His sole duty should have been getting his customer home safely. “Instead he abused that position of trust and I welcome the significant custodial sentence handed to this sex- ual predator by the judge. “This result would not have been poss- ible if it were not for the bravery of the victim in this case and I want to take this opportunity to thank her for having the courage to come forward."
