An Afghan asylum seeker has been jailed for raping a vulnerable teenager in a stairwell – just THREE MONTHS after he was allowed into the UK.
Masud Wakili, 27, attacked the 18-year-old victim who had passed out in a block of flats after he had plied her with vodka and coke.
Shockingly, in a bid to cover up his crime Wakili deliberately kissed the dazed woman in front of CCTV cameras to suggest she had consented to sex.
Three months before the brutal attack, Wakili had arrived in the UK from Italy to make an asylum application – despite being deported eight years ago.
On Thursday (15/3) Wakili was jailed for eight years and ordered to sign the sex offender’s register for life after he was found guilty of rape at Warwick Crown Court.
Judge Anthony Potter said: “On Saturday September the 9th last year, having had a modest amount of alcohol with friends in a park, you left them and headed into Coventry city centre alone.
“By the time you came across your victim you were equipped with a key fob to a block where your friend lived close to the city centre.
“It would have been obvious to you that she was vulnerable, not just by virtue of the drink she had taken, but also by her obvious impairment.
“You struck up a conversation and you took her to a pub.
“There is some evidence you were on the look-out for vulnerable females, but I’m not sure the planning was significant rather than opportunistic.
“I am satisfied, though, that despite the fact she told you she had a boyfriend, and was in frequent communication with him, you decided to have sexual intercourse with her irrespective of her wishes.
“Your purchase of a drink for her was as much assessing how vulnerable she was as adding to that vulnerability.
“You took her off to the block of flats where your friend lived, and it is evidence from the CCTV there that she was so drunk she had to cling on to the walls for support.
“Once she entered the lift she fell down through a combination of drunkenness and tiredness. You became irritated any pulled her up, and then pulled her out of the lift.
“You didn’t even take her to your friend’s flat, you took her to an isolated stairwell.
“Almost immediately she must have passed out, because she has no real memory of the encounter with you, perhaps fortunately in the circumstances because, without a thought for her welfare, your raped her.
“From the time you left the lift to the time you returned re-buttoning your trousers was just four minutes.
“Whether for the benefit of the CCTV or to suggest she was compliant, you kissed her.
“But your real attitude towards her as a disposable sexual commodity was demonstrated by you abandoning her after leaving the flats; and later you are captured returning with your friend, giving him his key fob back.”
The court heard Wakili came to the UK in 2007 and applied for asylum seeker status in 2010 but was refused and was deported back to his native Afghanistan.
Wakili turned up in Italy last year and applied for asylum status but it was refused because he had already made an application in the UK years earlier.
The Italian authorities sent him to the UK in June and he moved to Foleshill, Coventry.
Richard Davenport, defending, said: “There was no significant degree of planning.
“This was a chance encounter, and on her evidence it was she who ordered the drink, and she says he had half of it.”
