A woman who was used by Hampshire police to spearhead an honour-based violence campaign has been jailed after making up a story that she had been gang raped.Whoops!
Ikea cleaner Syeda Ali was the victim who told her harrowing story of sustained abuse and helped drive an awareness campaign about the crime.The three years isn’t just for the false rape claim, mind you. It’s mostly for her other offences:
But, jailing her for three years, a judge told the 30-year-old mum-of-three only prison would suffice after she concocted a story of abduction and rape by three men who were then arrested.
Ali also carried out 16 frauds, by filling out false loan applications and submitting them to her employer, Provident Personal Credit Ltd.Naturally, it’s not her fault:
Mitigating, Jonathan Simpson said Ali was of previous good character and was found to have a personality disorder.Really..?
