Minicab driver raped drunk young woman after she was put into his car by well-meaning friend in Leicester Square.

An minicab driver has been jailed for 10 years for raping a young woman put in his car by her friend who wanted to make sure she got home safely. 

                      Sexual predator Baisar 

Abdel Baisar, 34, picked up his victim in the early hours of June 20 last year in Leicester Square, central London after she was on a night out with friends.

Baisar, who already had a conviction for taxi-touting, was hanging around the area, when he was approached by the victim's friend. 

He drove the woman to her address in south east London and then attacked her. The victim woke up to discover she had been raped.

Baisar was traced through a match on the National DNA database and arrested on July 16. He was charged the following day. 

Baisar of Tulse Hill, south London pleaded not guilty to the offence but the jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict.

He was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment at Woolwich Crown Court after being found guilty of rape on January 19.

He must also sign the sex offenders register for life.

The Judge made an unbelievable bad statement saying that in the unlikely event he is ever granted a minicab licence again, the court ruled he must declare himself a convicted rapist to any single female fares. 

The fact is, this rapist should have received an order banning him for life from ever receiving a Private Hire licence. 

Detective Constable Mark Azariah of the Metropolitan Police's Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: 'I would like to praise the bravery of the victim in coming forward to the police in this distressing case and supporting the investigation.

'I would urge anyone to come forward to the police in such cases and work with us to convict these predatory males who target women when they are at their most vulnerable.

'I hope that the sentence handed down by the Judge goes some way in helping the victim recover from this ordeal.' 

Editorial Comment... By Jim Thomas: 

DNA Solution:

This animal was caught using DNA taken when he was arrested for Touting. Surely a simple solution to the amount of minicab related sexual assaults (rapes) would be to take DNA samples from every private hire and Taxi driver, when they apply for a licence or with outstanding drivers, licence renewals. Within three years every drivers DNA would be on the nation Data base. 

This wouldn't stop rapes altogether, but would make detection and conviction much easier.

                    Zero Tolerance, my arse!

    Police allowing minicabs to tout from taxi rank.

In the summer of 2014, I approached two police officers to complain about a line of touts parked with two wheels on the pavement (covered by national blanket ban) outside The Trocadero in Coventry Street. I asked the officers to move the cars on and was totally shocked by reply. 

One of the officers informed me he was using professional discretion to allow the vehicles to sit there, as there have been reports of women being sexually assaulted in the area and the closer the cars get to the exit the safer for young ladies leaving the Trocadero. 

I was completely and utterly shocked.

I told him, if he was worried about the rapes and sexual assaults in the area, it would be advantageous to move all the touting cars on, as it was these minicabs and predators who were carrying out the attacks. 

I told him he did not have the power of discretion to let people break the laws he personally didn't fancy enforcing. I also told him if he did not move the vehicles, I would report him to his Sgt. up the road on the corner of Waldor Street. This seemed to do the trick and both he and his female colleague walked over to the touts and moved them on.

Is this the mets idea of zero tolerance?

Doing nothing.

This unfortunate young lady was raped as a direct result of Met Police and TfL Cab Enforcement inaction. 

Additional Comment: ><

"When this sick pervert gets released, when he undoubtedly gets another PH License (do not want to jeopardise his Human rights) he must inform all single females getting into his car he is a convicted rapist.

"I am sure his future passengers will be reassured and have a comfortable ride home."

It's no good trying to shame TFL into action

Their married with two children Commissioner, thinks it's perfectly okay to surf adult porn sites and buy sex from a younger prostitute.

He also recieved surpport from his fellow directors and also the Mayor over his adulterous actions.

How can these men at TfL sleep, knowing that it is their inaction that is allowing this to happen

DNA testing for all won't cure this problem. As your blog post points out, this individual was caught using DNA profiling, which in itself proves the perpetrators of these rapes and sexual assaults enter Private Hire with the intention to commit opportunist rapes on vulnerable people.

Again and again these convictions and statistics categorically prove there is a large contingency of sexual predators embedded within the London Private Hire industry.
Many of these individuals come from backgrounds where thorough background checks cannot be made. The current vetting procedure adopted by TfL is inadequate and down right reckless.

Peter Hendy claims it is his job to protect the general public...this feeble excuse of manhood also claims he is no moral compass. By his own actions and admissions he has declared himself totally unfit to hold his position at TfL.
His exposed predilection for internet prostitution and TfL's reckless abandonment to protect the general public from Private Hire predators should have seen Peter Hendy removed from office a long time ago!
