Giles Humphry has recently posted this account of contact with Venture Taxis, seems like he got an over reaction?
Jahangir Akhtar gets in touch
Venture Taxis of Wath was recently exposed as having been operating without a licence for a year when one of their drivers was arrested for an alleged sexual assault on a 17 year old girl. A little bird tweeted in my ear that Venture taxis had thought they could get away with their delinquency due to a close connection with Rotherham’s taxi driver in chief, former deputy leader of the council Jahangir Akhtar, the man whom Louise Casey said continued to frighten other councillors even after his departure and who shouted “absolutely not” when asked if he wished to apologise for the rape gangs that flourished under his tenure. The same little bird suggested that Akhtar might be on police bail in connection with the Child Sexual Exploitation scandal.
