Brooklyn: Hate crime charge dropped against Muslim who brutally beat Jew while screaming “Allah” and “kill the Jews”

Farrukh Afzal was screaming “Allah” and “kill all the Jews.” Before he attacked Lipa Schwartz, he switched lanes and nearly hit a Jewish pedestrian. But WABC, without explanation, removed Lipa Schwartz’s statement that Afzal was screaming “Allah” from its report. And while the Daily Mail reported yesterday that Afzal had been charged with a hate crime, today there is no hate crime charge listed for Afzal. It looks as if powerful people in New York City want a Muslim-on-Jew hate crime to disappear. Islam is a religion of peace, doncha know.

“UPDATE – INSANITY: Hate Charges DROPPED Against ‘Allah’ Shouting Man Who Beat Hasidic Jew in Boro Park [NEW VIDEO],” The Yeshiva World, October 16, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):

A suspect has been hit with multiple charges – without hate-motivated distinction – for viciously beating a Hasidic Jewish man in Boro Park on Sunday morning.

Farrukh Afzal, 37, of Staten Island was charged with assault, criminal mischief and harassment for the attack, which took place at around 7:30AM near 46th Street and 13th Avenue.

He was initially hit with hate charges as well, but prosecutors have decided to label this a mere “road rage” incident and NOT a hate crime. This despite the victim and witnesses saying Afzal shouted “Allah, Allah”, said he wanted to “kill all Jews” and made references to Israel throughout the attack.

Additionally, new video (see below) provided to YWN on Monday night, shows Afzal switching lanes and nearly hitting another Jewish pedestrian (top left – behind white van) and blowing a red light as he sped down 13th Ave enroute to 46th street where he viciously beat 62-year-old R’ Lipa Schwartz.

Afzal, who has 8 prior arrests, was detained on Sunday night in lieu of $15,000 bail. He has since been fired from the “Church Ave Car Service” at which he was employed and whose car he was driving at the time of the assault.

As reported by YWN on Sunday, R’ Lipa Schwartz, 62, was walking to Shul, Tallis and Tefillin in hand, when a black “Church Ave Car Service” vehicle driven by Afzal came to a screeching halt at the curb nearby. Afzal got out, ran towards Schwartz and began punching him in his face while screaming “Allah, Allah” repeatedly.

“He came out from the car. I couldn’t explain to you how angry he was. He was screaming the whole time,” Schwartz told CBS2.

“All of a sudden… boof, boof, boof, boof!”, Schwartz said, referring to the barrage of punches that came his way. “So I start to fight back because it’s either death or life.”

SHOCKING! Is CAIR Cooking The Discrimination Books?

Peter Agbeyegbe

On September 5, 2018, Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) law clerk, Peter Agbeyegbe, made a stunning revelation that may cast doubt on CAIR’s reporting of discrimination complaints and statistics.

CAIR, is a self described national civil rights group focusing on Muslim discrimination and advocacy work. CAIR’s legitimacy is linked to manufacturing the impression that discrimination cases against the followers of Islam are increasing at alarming rates.  FBI statistics report a different reality: 2016 FBI data: Jews were 3X more likely than blacks, 1.5X more likely than Muslims to be a hate crime victim.

This CAIR April 23, 2018 eNewsletter report explains,

CAIR’s 2018 Civil Rights Report provides concrete evidence that the unconstitutional Muslim Ban resulted in more Islamophobic hate and violence,” said CAIR Research and Advocacy Coordinator Zainab Arain, author of the report. “The anti-Muslim hate incidents documented in CAIR’s report are an indictment of the Trump administration and its unconstitutional and divisive policies.

CAIR Law clerk, Peter Agbeyegbe, seems to indicate that CAIR discrimination statistics may not be so concrete.  Mr. Agbeyegbe states,

“A lot of people don’t really have cases, but they feel they have a case and feel they have been discriminated against.  At least we can help them go through some type of process so they will feel better about whats happening…Because its not easy to prove some of these cases.  So unless they have their ducks in a row.  A lot of people don’t take detailed notes they try to remember things and try to remember things from years ago.

Some would say CAIR’s legitimacy is tied to their “concrete evidence” of increased discrimination against the followers of Islam.  CAIR employee Peter Agbeyegbe told us that “a lot of people don’t really have (discrimination) cases” brought to CAIR;  which would  beg the question.  How many of these people who go to CAIR with ‘discrimination cases’ are counted as ‘filing’  a discrimination report regardless if their claims are legitimate or not?   Some would argue that technically a ‘discrimination case’ was filed but the details of the cases legitimacy may not be reflected in CAIR’s statistics, possibly skewing the outcome.

Any statistician will tell you there is a direct ‘causal relationship’ between when a statistical event is recorded and when it actually happened.  For example, if a person experienced a discrimination event the time between when the discrimination happened and when it is reported to CAIR, is statistically very important.

Peter Agbeyegbe says that a lot of people who file discrimination complaints with CAIR “don’t remember things from years ago.”   It would seem CAIR may count these unprovable Muslim discrimination complaint cold cases as active, even if years have gone by  and there is no way to corroborate the charges.

Conclusion

What we caught on audio tape is significant because it’s unheard of for a CAIR employee to divulge secrets like Peter Agbeyegbe did so openly and sincerely.

Mr. Agbeyegbe opened the door for reasonable people to be concerned about CAIR’s Muslim discrimination complaint numbers possibly being inflated.

In the case, Rene Arturo Lopez, ET AL.., V. Council on American-Islamic Relations Action Network, Inc before the United States Court of Appeals.  In this case, CAIR hired Morris Days a/k/a Jamil Days as a civil rights attorney.  Problem was Mr. Days  was not licensed to practice law.  Money was exchanged, CAIR client cases were handled fraudulently, resulting in the  court case above.  This was a case of CAIR violating the civil rights of their fellow followers of Islam they have sworn  to protect. CAIR was acting as the defrauded individuals ‘Wali’ and failed them in the eyes of Allah.

The Washington Post reports, In November of 2014 The United Arab Emirates (UAE) declared CAIR a designated terrorist organization because of its direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  CAIR is stymied because they can’t call the UAE ‘Islamophobic’ because they are a Muslim country.  This case and others expose the CAIR ‘Islamophobia’ advertising campaign as clever propaganda.

CAIR’s identity and legitimacy, many speculate, is tied directly to how many Muslim discrimination complaints they process each year.  If those discrimination numbers remain stagnant, or go down, then CAIR can’t proclaim Muslim victimhood status.  This victimhood status gives CAIR their power to legally intimidate and bully those who question the actions of  this highly controversial group  called, The Council  on American Islamic Relations.

DNCC Deputy Chair Ellison on his #MeToo Moments: “Women can make things up!”

The Deputy Chairman of the DNCC Keith Ellison has been accused by two women Karen Monahan and Amy L. Alexander of domestic abuse.

In a BizPac Review article Vivek Saxena reports:

Congressman Keith Ellison, who’s currently running to serve as Minnesota’s next attorney general, has vehemently denied the allegations of abuse against him, casting doubt on the credibility of accusers Karen Monahan and Amy Alexander.

During a post-primary debate Friday evening on Twin Cities PBS’ “Almanac” program, one of the moderators noted that 40 percent of Minnesota voters consider these allegations against the congressman to be a factor in whether or not they intend to vote for him come November.

In response, he tried discrediting both Monahan and Alexander, making it sound as if they were just spurned lovers. The reactions from both the debate moderators and his challenger, Republican candidate Doug Wardlow, suggest they didn’t believe him.

Read more.

Watch:

Saxena continues:

While Ellison denies this ever happened, 911 call records obtained by investigate reporter Laura Loomer paint a different picture. And while it’s true Ellison did file a successful request for a restraining order against her, Alexander characterized the move as an attempt to “marginalize” her.

“He made this whole nightmare a matter of public record,” she wrote in her 2006 column, which may be seen below. “He silenced me. Now it’s my turn to be heard.”

A debate moderator asked: “Are you confident that no one else will step forward with any other allegations?”

Ellison replied,

“Look, in this political environment, I don’t know what somebody might cook up. But I could tell you that there is absolutely nobody that I am aware of who is threatening or suggesting or who has ever made a prior accusation about me.”

Here is the column titled The Truth About Keith Ellison by Amy L. Alexander on Scribd:

Democrats demand Americans believe unsubstantiated allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford.

Keith Ellison demands Americans reject substantiated allegations by two different women of domestic abuse.

The #MeToo movement is dead. It died by over reach.

Muslims, Leftists demand Florida official resign for asking ‘Name just one society in the developed world that has benefited in any way from the introduction of more Muslims.’

The question, as always, is lost in the fog of “Islamophobia” accusations and self-righteous posturing by opportunistic Leftist officials.

Joel Greenberg asked:

“Very simple question…Name just ONE society in the developed world that has benefited in ANY WAY from the introduction of more Muslims. Just one.”

This question is not allowed to be asked. Rasha Mubarak, president of the Young Democrats of Orange County, says: “This feeds into the anti-Muslim rhetoric that not only is dangerous for the Muslim community, misperceived Muslim Community, people of color, moreover for our entire Centra Florida community. It’s divisive and hazardous….His statement opens the doors for more bigotry and hate – it’s that kind of discrimination that leads to violence. They’re not just words when they’re by elected officials. It gives a green light for people to act upon this hate and ignorance.”

Claiming without any evidence whatsoever that Greenberg’s words constitute “discrimination that leads to violence” is a common tactic today among Islamic supremacists and their Leftist allies. They claim that because what is being said will supposedly incite people to commit acts of violence against them, the speaker must be silenced for the protection of the Muslim community. Carried to its logical conclusion, this line of reasoning would forbid everyone to say anything critical of anyone, for fear that the criticism might lead to violence against the criticized individual or group. But Leftists and Islamic supremacists never carry it that far; they just use this claim to silence those who state things they don’t want stated.

For the question remains: is there a developed country that has a lower crime rate, an increased GDP, or any sign of economic or societal improvement after a Muslim migrant influx? There have been many immigrant waves into the West, and the question has been asked, and answered favorably, after many of them; but this time, to ask it is in itself an insult and a threat to the Muslim community.

What’s more, Joel Greenberg was commenting on a tweet from this site about female genital mutilation (FGM). The tweet contained a link to this story about a three-year-old in Britain who was rushed to emergency surgery after a botched FGM operation. Did that actually happen? Yes. Is FGM wrong? Yes. But “journalist” Monivette Cordeiro of the Orlando Weekly doesn’t bother with any such considerations; she just links (at “a site that critics have called anti-Muslim propaganda”) to the hard-Left smear organization the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has been thoroughly discredited. Why is the SPLC trustworthy as an arbiter of what is a hate group and what isn’t? Cordeiro, like every other mainstream media reporter in the galaxy, doesn’t see fit to tell us, or to inform her readers that there is considerable evidence that the SPLC is not a neutral arbiter, but a hard-Left smear group that uses its “extremist” label to tar legitimate groups that oppose its Leftist agenda. Concerned about FGM? Oh, that’s just “anti-Muslim propaganda,” you see. Will the three-year-old girl survive? To care would be “Islamophobic.”

So here we have yet another witch hunt, with yet another public official in hot water for asking a salient and important question, and for opposing what every decent human being should oppose. This is like a play, a very popular play that keeps getting produced all over the country. Everyone always acts out his or her part. Here’s how it goes: a public official makes a statement about Islam or jihad that opposes the mainstream view that Islam is a religion of peace that has nothing to do with the violence constantly done in its name. A chorus of indignation follows from Leftist officials and Muslim spokesmen, demanding the resignation of the “bigot.” Mainstream media reporter writes about the controversy, writing negative and distorted statements about the official, invoking the likes of Hamas-linked CAIR and the SPLC as if they were neutral and reliable sources. The only plot variable is that sometimes, but rarely, the official holds out, and refuses to apologize or resign. Let’s hope Joel Greenberg turns out to be one of the courageous ones.

“Calls for Seminole County tax collector to apologize or resign after bigoted post about Muslims,” by Monivette Cordeiro, Orlando Weekly, August 18, 2018:

Central Floridians are calling on Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg to apologize after Greenberg posted an “Islamophobic” question asking how Muslims benefit society on Facebook.

The controversy began Saturday after the Republican elected official posted on his personal Facebook, “Very simple question…Name just ONE society in the developed world that has benefited in ANY WAY from the introduction of more Muslims. Just one. Asking for a friend.”

Greenberg also included in the comments a link to an article about a case of female genital mutilation from Jihad Watch, a site that critics have called anti-Muslim propaganda.

The post set off a firestorm of online backlash from the local Muslim community and other advocates, who asked Greenberg to condemn the statement or to resign if he refuses to apologize.

Rasha Mubarak, president of the Young Democrats of Orange County and a civil rights advocate for the Muslim community in Orlando, called on the public to contact Greenberg’s office to voice their concerns.

“Joel Greenberg posts derogatory and Islamophobic comments,” Mubarak wrote online. “This feeds into the anti-Muslim rhetoric that not only is dangerous for the Muslim community, misperceived Muslim Community, people of color, moreover for our entire Centra Florida community. It’s divisive and hazardous – there is no room for any kind of discrimination in office. Joel Greenberg needs to resign if he fails to release a public apology.”

In an interview with Orlando Weekly, Greenberg says he did not write the post – he was literally “asking for a friend” by sharing the same question from Twitter. The original tweet was from conservative commentator Neil Boortz. Greenberg defended himself, saying he didn’t make derogatory statements, but that other people have attacked him with offensive comments.

“I was legitimately asking on behalf of somebody else,” he says. “Now I’m just sitting back and watching people go crazy. … I don’t have a racist or bigoted bone in my body.”…He says he wasn’t trying to offend anybody by asking a “legitimate question.” Anyone who comes to the Seminole County Tax Collector’s office, regardless of religion, will get the same service, he maintains.

(Note: “Just asking questions” is a well-known form of fallacious argument similar to “what about”-ism.)

“One of my best friends is Muslim, and I have a black brother,” he says. “I’m Jewish, which is probably one of the most hated groups. I don’t go out there to be a demagogue against anyone else. I think it’s fun to have a discussion. … There was not a single thing that was derogatory or slanderous. It’s kind of ironic coming from people who claim to be part of a religion of peace and a political party of tolerance don’t tolerate somebody asking a question.”…

“I’m provoking public discussion,” he says. “It’s much different than me making a statement as a fact or opinion. I’m simply asking a question. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having a discussion, especially when they’re getting censored on other platform. … We live in a world that’s extremely politically correct. Most people try to walk this fine line and unfortunately cannot have public discussions.”

But if Greenberg actually wanted an answer to his question, he could have just consulted Google instead of posting it on Facebook, says Osman Farooq, a Central Florida doctor who is part of the American Muslim Community Center in Longwood.

“The comments are very upsetting, very hurtful,” Farooq says. “This is from a public elected official – we expect a lot better from them. … I think his questions on his public forum from an elected official are consistent with Islamophobic comments and discrimination from his office.”

Farooq invites Greenberg to visit the AMCC in Longwood and see the “amazing things” the Muslim community in Seminole County is doing.

“I’m a critical care physician in Seminole County – I save lives for a living, just to answer Greenberg’s question on Facebook,” he says. “I think he needs to show him humility and voice a public apology that would make people sympathize with his gesture. But to outright deny anything is wrong and play almost dumb is unacceptable.”

Mubarak says advocates are also calling on Greenberg’s family business, Greenberg Dental & Orthodontics, to condemn the statement. In the past, Greenberg has posted other anti-Muslim memes and statements, she says.

“His statement opens the doors for more bigotry and hate – it’s that kind of discrimination that leads to violence,” Mubarak says. “They’re not just words when they’re by elected officials. It gives a green light for people to act upon this hate and ignorance.”

Mubarak adds that although Greenberg’s intent may have been to “have a shock factor,” his posts created more divide within the community.

“He’s being provocative,” she says. “People follow the lead of elected officials. If indeed this was a question, he did not have to publicize it the way he did. He could have reached out to Muslim community leadership and had that conversation.”…

Wesley Neuman, the vice chair of the Seminole County Democratic Party, has called on Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg to resign from office.

“As a county-wide officer, Greenberg took an oath to uphold the constitutions of the United States of America, and the state of Florida,” Neuman said in a statement. “This sort of rhetoric, in conjunction with his poor management, and inclination to take the law into his own hands indicates that Greenberg is unwilling or unwilling – or both – to faithfully execute his oath of office.”

Neuman also called on Gov. Rick Scott to remove Greenberg from office if he refused to resign.

“Should the governor fail to take action, I promise my top priority after November will be to petition the incoming Democratic governor to remove and replace Joel Greenberg,” he said.

Greenberg has since posted another statement to his personal Facebook, saying “Ah, the religion of peace and the party of tolerance. Until they disagree with you. Hypocrites. All of them. Vote Republican.”

American couple that believed ‘evil is a make-believe concept’ murdered by ISIS in Tajikistan

“You watch the news and you read the papers, and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place. People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil. People are axe murderers and monsters and worse. I don’t buy it. Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own—it’s easier to dismiss an opinion as abhorrent than strive to understand it.”

Got it.

“American Couple Dies Tragically While Biking Through ISIS Territory Trying To Prove Evil Does Not Exist,” by Benny Johnson, Daily Caller, August 16, 2018:

An American couple decided to bicycle around the world in an attempt to prove evil does not exist. They chose to bicycle through ISIS territory and ISIS killed them.

The news of their deaths broke Aug. 8, but their story lives on in a tragic social media history.

Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan left their D.C. government jobs nearly two years ago to embark on a worldwide bike tour. The wide-eyed, optimistic couple kept track of their trips on a website where they posted stunning photos of their travels and whimsical musings on evil, the media and the goodness of people.

In one post, Austin — who is a vegan — said he worked for the Department of Housing and Urban Development during Obama’s presidency explained how he and his girlfriend were planning to bike around the world with hopes to meet “generous” and approachable people….

“You watch the news and you read the papers, and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place,” Austin said, “People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil. People are axe murderers and monsters and worse.”

Austin continued, saying that “evil is a make-believe concept.”

“I don’t buy it. Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own—it’s easier to dismiss an opinion as abhorrent than strive to understand it. Badness exists, sure, but even that’s quite rare. By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind. No greater revelation has come from our journey than this.”

Unfortunately, Austin and Geoghegan discovered first-hand that evil does exist in the world when they traveled through a terrorist hotbed.

The couple chose to bike through the Muslim country of Tajikistan with another group of cyclists. They met a gruesome fate when confronted by five members of ISIS.

On July 29th, a car driven by the ISIS members rammed the bikers. The men exited the van and began stabbing the bikers, killing Austin and Geoghegan, along with the other bikers.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack in a video featuring the killers posing with an ISIS flag and pledging allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. According to the New York Times, the men vowed to kill the “disbelievers.”

Woman given complimentary glass of wine on Emirates flight, then arrested in Dubai for drinking it

“Radha Stirling, Detained in Dubai’s chief executive, said it is ‘wholly illegal for any tourist to have any level of alcohol in their blood, even if consumed in flight and provided by Dubai’s own airline.’”

That sounds like a Sharia trap just waiting to be sprung.

“Mom detained in Dubai after drinking complimentary glass of wine on Emirates flight,” by Kathleen Joyce, Fox News, August 10, 2018:

Ellie Holman said she was detained along with her daughter after drinking a glass of wine on an Emirates flight to Dubai.

A mother from Kent, England, and her young daughter were jailed in Dubai for three days – where she was allegedly denied water and forced to clean toilets – after she admitted to drinking a glass of wine on the incoming Emirates flight from London, but Dubai officials have a different side of the story.

It’s illegal to drink alcohol or be intoxicated in public in Dubai, one of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates.

Ellie Holman, a 44-year-old dentist originally from Sweden who resides in Britain with her husband and their three children, was arrested on July 13 after landing in Dubai with her 4-year-old daughter, the Press Association reported.

Upon arrival in Dubai, an official reportedly told Holman she needed to return to the United Kingdom immediately because of an invalid visa, at which point she took out her phone and started filming the encounter, according to human rights group Detained in Dubai.

Holman said the official was “dismissive and rude” to her, and asked if she had been consuming alcohol. She admitted to the official that she had a complimentary glass of wine on the Emirates flight.

Holman, unaware that it was an offense to film the encounter, and illegal to drink alcohol, was taken into custody, Detained in Dubai reported. The mother and her daughter also had their passports and electronic devices confiscated.

Holman said in a statement to Detained in Dubai that the prison guards also attempted to pull out her hair extensions, and the prison facility was “hot and foul-smelling.” She claimed she and her daughter were forced to sleep on a “filthy mattress” and to clean toilets.

“My little girl had to go to the toilet on the cell floor. I have never heard her cry in the same way as she did in that cell,” Holman said in a statement.

Holman added that she was given food that “smelled like rotting garbage.” She said her husband and friends tried to visit her in jail, but they were not allowed to see her.

Holman was released on bail days later, but could face “being detained in Dubai for up to a year while awaiting a court hearing,” the Press Association reported. Her passport was confiscated until the case is finished, and she claims to have already lost thousands of dollars in missed wages and legal costs….

Radha Stirling, Detained in Dubai’s chief executive, said it is “wholly illegal for any tourist to have any level of alcohol in their blood, even if consumed in flight and provided by Dubai’s own airline. It is illegal to consume alcohol at a bar, a hotel and a restaurant, and if breathalyzed, that person will be jailed.”

Muslim teens forced to marry, raped and impregnated — UK issues their Muslim husbands entry Visas

Leftists and Islamic apologists sometimes throw up to me the fact that I am banned from entering the UK, as if it were proof that I am some sort of “extremist.” In reality, the UK has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihadis and Islamic supremacists, while banning foes of jihad terror.

Meanwhile, the British government recently banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it clear that it is more authoritarian and unwilling to uphold the freedom of speech than ever – at least when it comes to criticism of Islam, Muslim rape gangs, and mass Muslim migration.

Even worse, the bannings of Sellner, Pettibone, Southern, and Bachmann were just part of a long pattern. Pamela Geller and I were banned from entering Britain in 2013, apparently for life, also for the crime of telling the truth about Islam and jihad. Just days after Geller and I were banned, the British government admitted Saudi Sheikh Mohammed al-Arefe. Al-Arefe has said:

“Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight.”

And Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.

The UK Home Office also admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”

Theresa May’s relentlessly appeasement-minded government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.

“Visas for men who forced girls into marriage,” by Paul Morgan-Bentley, The Times, August 2, 2018 (thanks to David):

Women and girls raped after being sent abroad, then Home Office lets illegal husbands settle in UK

British teenagers are being forced to marry abroad and are raped and impregnated while the Home Office “turns a blind eye” by handing visas to their husbands, The Times has found.

Officials received dozens of reports last year that women wanted to block visas for men they had been made to marry in countries including Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirates. In almost half of their cases the visas were approved, records show.

Yvette Cooper, chairwoman of the home affairs select committee, said she would demand answers from the Home Office over the findings.

Experts believe that there are thousands of victims in Britain as the vast majority are too afraid to come forward….
