Deaf News: ‘Violent and manipulative’ London man jailed for abuse of deaf women

Posted on June 10, 2013

A range of publications have reported on this disturbing story.  This extract is from the Docklands and East London Advertiser:

Abdul Kadir, 25, who is also deaf, repeatedly beat, kicked and insulted the women over the course of a three year and two year relationship respectively.

Kadir, of Westferry Road on the Isle of Dogs, ridiculed their physical appearance, and spread false rumours that one was mentally disabled.

He was found guilty of routinely physically abusing the women, aged 28 and 31, last month. But he was cleared of repeatedly raping them and locking them in their own homes.

Sentencing Kadir to three years behind bars at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, Judge Patricia Lees said: “You are a violent and manipulative bully.

“After a honeymoon period when you lulled each victim into a false sense that they were loved by you, you subjected them to systematic abuse.

“You employed classic bullying tactics, pretending the assaults had never happened and blaming the victims.

“You have shown no remorse,” she added.
