Update: Cricket Thug May Be Resentenced

Last week, I posted about a muslim thug who beat up his wife and then was given a very, very lenient sentence because his wife was college educated, therefore she bore some responsibility to being hit with a cricket bat and had the crap beat out of her by her thug husband.  One reason why he got off very easy was because he lied to the court and said he had a contract pending with a Leicester (U.K) professional team.
Well, things may change.

From the Leicester Mercury: The sentence of a wife-beating cricketer who claimed he had job lined up with Leicestershire County Cricket Club is to be reviewed this week.
Mustafa Bashir, 34, attacked his then wife Fakhara Karim with a cricket bat and forced her to drink bleach.
He admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm, assault by beating, destroying or damaging property, and using a destructive substance with intent to maim at Manchester Crown Court.

In light of this, Judge Mansell has now ordered for Bashir's sentence to be reviewed at Mancheter Crown Court on Friday at 11am.
Leicestershire CCC chief executive Wasim Khan has said: "Leicestershire CCC are appalled that Bashir could have invented a job offer from the club in order, it would seem, to evade a prison sentence.
"The club are actively involved in the fight against domestic abuse and had already arranged a Bowling Out Domestic Violence cricket match in September, in support of the White Ribbon Campaign, set up to tackle domestic violence.
"So Bashir's claim was deeply disturbing for the club, and we will continue to do what we can to support the authorities in bringing about justice."
Hopefully, this thug will get a couple years of prison time and hopefully, the judge in the case will understand the horrors of domestic abuse and that women, no matter what their education level is, are vulnerable to abuse... and some men are also vulnerable as well.
