A gang boss who pimped out young girls for £150-a-time at a curry house is set for early release just five years into his 22-year sentence.
Mubarek Ali, 34, sold teenage girls, some as young as 13, for sex above an Indian restaurant in Telford, Shropshire, after grooming them.
His brother Ahdel Ali, 27, was handed a 26-year sentence after the pair sexually abused, trafficked, prostituted or tried to prostitute four teenagers.
One of the victims of the notorious Telford child sex abuse ring is said to still be ‘living in fear’.
Mubarek was convicted of four charges of controlling child prostitution, two of trafficking in the UK for sexual exploitation and one of causing child prostitution.
The offences against girls as young as 13 took place between March 2008 and December 2009.
He is due to be released on licence in November later this year and the news prompted Telford MP Lucy Allan to raise her concerns in the House of Commons.
She asked the Prime Minister earlier this month whether Ali should be allowed to return to Telford.
She said: ‘A young woman in Telford who gave evidence in a horrific child sexual exploitation case five years ago is living in fear.
‘The perpetrator, who received a 22-year sentence, is about to be released early.
