Three Somalis living in Britain took turns brutally raping a 16-year-old in Britain. The victim's mother recounted how the attackers' families tormented her throughout the trial.
The mother of a 16-year-old raped by three Somali men today claimed 50 of their friends and family carried out a two-month campaign of intimidation throughout the trial.
The woman, who cannot be named to protect her daughter's anonymity, says she was smuggled into court via a back door 'as if she was the criminal' to see the men jailed for a total of 29 years.
Muhyadeen Osman, Bilal Ahmed and Mowled Yussuf, all 20, gang raped the girl at the Victoria Park Hotel in Manchester, having spent the night before there for Eid.
Their victim was 'naive' when she met them and they saw her as 'easy prey' so lured her into a bedroom playing a game of 'hide and seek' before raping her in 2013, the court heard.
A group of more than 50 family members and friends gathered at Manchester Crown Court on Friday to protest and the girl's mother says they deliberately intimidated her and her family.
The girl's mother said on the day the trio were jailed Yussuf swore at them and another in the gang blew kisses while family members shouted at them.
The 49-year-old from Cheshire, also said she and her husband were constantly targeted during the two month trial.
She said: 'I was frightened throughout and my husband was frightened. There were so many of them and many of them would goad me when I walked past and deliberately try to intimidate us.
'On some occasions there were at least 50 in the courtroom - most likely many more on the day of the sentencing. — dailymail.co.uk
