UK: Iraqi asylum seeker was given help and handed six-bedroom home. In return he joined gang that looted shops

Here we go again. Infamously aggressive, violent, criminal and completely contemptuous towards their host country has made Muslim migrants the absolute worse addition to western society. At least British press has begun to post names and pictures of immigrant criminals – which is often avoided in other parts of Europe due to ‘political correctness’ where their pictures are instead pixelated.

The British public have expressed a high vote of reinstating capital punishment to tackle the country’s massive immigrant crime wave, a proposal the government keep rejecting. 35% of the entire nations prison population in Britain consist of muslims, who make up 3.3% of the population. What will society look like when the muslim population reach 10%?

He claimed to be so poor that he joined the riots to steal money for food.

But in reality Nasir Muhsen, 18, was living in a £3million apartment, funded by British taxpayers.

He and his family were housed in one of London’s most fashionable areas after they fled Iraq to claim asylum in Britain.

The details of the yob’s luxurious accommodation, which most could only dream of, can now be revealed after he was jailed yesterday, along with 15 other gang members who laid siege to shops and businesses ‘like a pack of hounds’ during the riots.

The serial offender was part of a ‘rampaging mob’ who terrorised the streets of Queensway and Notting Hill in West London on August 8 last year, looting, setting fire to mopeds and buses, and attacking a Michelin-starred restaurant favoured by celebrities including Kate Moss.

Yesterday Muhsen was locked up for six and a half years at Inner London Crown Court after racking up what a judge called a ‘handsome record for violence’ after coming to Britain.

Sneering with contempt for the judge and laughing as he swaggered to the cells, he joked: ‘Obviously I want more, I want to remain in prison.’

The Mail can now reveal that Muhsen and his family trashed their six-bedroom flat in a grand Victorian mansion block in Kensington after being housed there by the council.

To the fury of neighbours, who include a naval admiral, they enjoyed a 3,000 sq ft basement apartment just by Earls Court.

The property, which if rented on the private market could command around £6,000 a month, had been refurbished before their arrival last year.

But by the time the family were evicted last Christmas for not paying their heavily subsidised rent to the council, it was in such a bad state that builders had to spend ten days on repairs.

One neighbour said: ‘They were like animals. All the wardrobes were ripped out. It had been gutted.

‘The windows were broken, the doors were off. It looked like it had been party central. People came and went all times of the night. They trashed it.’

Muhsen was living at the plush property with his mother and brothers at the time of the riots, yet his defence lawyer, Rupert Bowers, argued: ‘He had no income, the money he took was to buy food.’

Muhsen, who a month after the riots was jailed for another robbery, has convictions dating back to 2009.

He was given a youth rehabilitation order after being convicted of wounding and possession of an offensive weapon in 2010 and robbery in June 2011.

But like many of the gang members, he breached the order to join the riots, during which he was part of a group that ransacked an off-licence, battering the terrified shopkeeper over the head eight times with a bottle of champagne.

Yesterday Judge Usha Karu jailed Muhsen for six and a half years for conspiracy to commit violent disorder and robbery.

The court heard that Muhsen was part of a mob of more than 50 youths from rival gangs who teamed up for a night of ‘devastating’ disorder.

At the height of the violence, masked youths wielding poles, knives and baseball bats stormed Michelin-starred restaurant The Ledbury, robbing diners of designer watches, cash, jewellery and phones.

Yesterday’s sentences for Muhsen and the 15 other members of his mob, who were described by Judge Karu as ‘like a pack of hounds’ added up to a total of 73 years.

She told them: ‘It was a year ago today that you were involved in the mob criminality that so disturbed the law-abiding members of the public.’

Today, in stark contrast to the scenes of arson, looting and damage, London is hosting the Olympics, which demonstrates the excellence which can be achieved in sport and is an inspiration to all.

‘However, those involved in these events were intent on the opposite.’

In extraordinary scenes, many of the defendants, aged between 15 and 25, whooped with joy, shouting obscenities and laughing as the judge passed sentence.

One, Karl Jensen, was stepping out of a shoe shop on the night of the rioting, clutching boxes full of stolen trainers, when he was pinned to the ground by One Show presenter Dan Snow.

Jensen, 25, had been out of prison for just ten days after serving a five-year sentence for robbery.

Yesterday he laughed as he was sentenced to three years in jail. Having already served a year on remand, he will be eligible for release in only six months.

On the subject of the lavish accommodation previously given to Muhsen and his family, Councillor Sir Merrick Cockell, leader of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, said yesterday: ‘It is important to note that rent levels for local housing allowance are not set by councils but by the Department for Work and Pensions.

‘But we welcome the cap introduced by the Coalition Government that will ensure that taxpayers no longer fund unreasonable levels of housing benefit.’
