Grooming gang convictions '84% Asian', say researchers

Grooming gang convictions in uk

High profile cases like Rochdale have generated negative headlines about the Asian community.

The most recent case in Newcastle changed the debate after 17 men and one woman were convicted of nearly 100 offences, and the judge said the grooming wasn't racially motivated.

Following the judgment, Mike Penning MP wrote to the Attorney General calling for a review.


Nazir Afzal, who is credited with tackling the issue during his time as Chief Crown Prosecutor in the North West, warned the issue of 'Asian' grooming gangs is being used as a recruitment tool by the far-right.

Mr Afzal also warned gang grooming was not the most common form of child sexual abuse.

"British white men they tend to work individually. They tend to work online where they groom and they are the majority of perpetrators. When it comes to Asian men or Pakistani men they tend to do it in groups," Mr Afzal said.
