Dark Justice fury after police admit pervert they snared has probably fled UK
Paedo hunters Dark Justice have hit out after police admitted a Teesside child groomer they snared has probably fled Britain.
Stockton pervert Abdullah Hardari-Moqadam was confronted by the North-east web vigilantes as he went to meet who he thought was a 13-year-old girl.
He pleaded guilty to sexual grooming but failed to appear at his sentencing hearing.
Two months on, police admit they don’t think he’s in the UK.
Now Dark Justice has criticised authorities for letting Hardari-Moqadam sneak out the country – and evade justice.
“This is a kick in the teeth not only to us, but also to every parent in this country knowing that he will never face justice in this country,” said a member.
The secretive group, which poses as underage girls online to trap sex predators, spent weeks stashing evidence against the 25-year-old.
They even claim they told police that he was selling kebabs in a Teesside takeaway – but he still wasn’t found.
But after the force’s admission, one of the group said: “The fact he is allowed to still be at large, never mind leave the UK, shows that the British justice system is failing.
“He will be somewhere like Turkey or Syria by now, laughing as he knows he will never be made to pay for what he did.
“He will be free to keep on preying on children if he wants.
“I don’t know how those in authority can sleep at night knowing that he has got away so easy.”
How Hardari-Moqadam seemingly was able to slip under the net is unclear.
After admitting trying to meet a girl he sexually groomed via texts, he was due to be sentenced at Newcastle Crown Court on April 14.
After his barrister John Wilkinson told the court Hardari-Moqadam had been written to at his Blacksail Close home, in Newtown , with hearing details, Judge Robert Adams issued a warrant for his arrest.
It isn’t known if Hardari-Moqadam, who had been bailed, was ever ordered to surrender his passport.
Northumbria Police told the Gazette the force believes Hardari-Moqadam has probably left the UK.
In a statement, the force said they were working with border control agencies, adding: “Northumbria Police is carrying out enquiries.
“They are ongoing”
But for the group that exposed Hardari-Moqadam, that isn’t good enough.
“They gave him the chance to run.” said a Dark Justice member.
“It takes a long time for us to start an investigation to getting them to court, and for him to then just walk out the country – it is a joke.
“If he didn’t have his passport taken off him, why not? Surely he should be classed as a flight risk.
“If he did then he should never have been bailed.
“It isn’t racist to say that if you are not from the UK – be it black or white, Syrian or from Ireland – and you do something like this then you are a flight risk and shouldn’t be bailed.
“By letting him escape they are telling people they don’t care.”
Dark Justice has so far seen a number of paedophiles convicted by the courts following their online conversations.
