Police paid child rapist to infiltrate sex-grooming gang

Police secretly paid £10,000 to a child rapist who attended parties where men drugged and sexually abused young girls.

Officers were aware of his conviction when they recruited him in 2014 to spy on a gang of men, mainly of Pakistani and Bangladeshi origin, suspected of sex-grooming crimes against teenagers in Newcastle upon Tyne.

The Northumbria force’s deployment of the sex offender, who can only be identified as XY, came to light during a series of trials at which 17 men and one woman were found guilty of 90 offences against children and young women.

‘White women are good only for people like me to use as trash’

Sometimes, she felt like a baton in a relay race, passed from man to man for her drugged body to be used as each saw fit. The girl described being collected from a children’s home and taken to parties at flats and houses where men, up to seven at a time, awaited their sport. They fed her cocaine and mephedrone, she said, then queued to take their turn. She was 13.

Her story was one among many bleak accounts of lost lives in the back streets of Newcastle upon Tyne that were shared with juries in trials that formed part of the northeast’s largest criminal inquiry into sexual exploitation.

Chances to stop child sex abuse were missed

Police failings that allowed child-sex gangs to flourish nationally were exemplified by the Northumbria force’s response to an incident in 2011 in the coastal town of Tynemouth.

Leaving a restaurant after a family meal, an off-duty probation officer watched in alarm as a man herded three drunken teenage girls towards the back of a 4×4 vehicle. Her concern increased when she realised that she knew the man. Abdul Sabe, then 34, was a convicted offender and she was aware that he was on the sex offenders register.

Paying criminals gives police an essential crimefighting tool

In the criminal underworld they are labelled grasses, narks or snouts and their deployment is invariably shrouded in official secrecy. Until, that is, something goes wrong.

Incentives for someone to become a covert human intelligence source (CHIS) range from financial reward to a reduced prison sentence. Some pass on information about petty crimes, others are at the heart of major gangland and terrorism investigations.

All police forces use paid informants and defend their role as an essential crime detection tool but Northumbria has traditionally relied on them more than most.

    This is where the emphasis of the media coverage should lie, not the £10000 to the child rapist
