12-year term for Somali rapist pretending to be police officer after kidnap bid
The Somali refugee tried to kidnap and drug five schoolgirls, after serving sentence for rape
Convicted rapist Abdi Waise should be kicked out of the country after completing his sentence, a judge said.
But legal experts believe Waise will launch a legal appeal against any deportation order.
It is the second time he has been recommended for removal from Britain.
He thwarted the earlier attempt by claiming it was a breach of his human rights to send him back to Somalia.
Waise, 28, had been freed from jail after an eight-year jail sentence for rape before he tried to lure fi ve girls aged 11 to 14 off the streets.
He was armed with a powerful drug, and police fear he planned to knock out his victims so he could “do anything he wanted” to them.
CCTV footage showed him walking beside one of his would-be victims as she made her way to school.
He told the girl he was a police officer and that he knew her mother, Wood Green Crown Court, north London, heard.
As she tried to get away, Waise pulled her back and repeated his bid to force her to go with him.
She seized her chance to escape when Waise was distracted, ran into her school and alerted a teacher.

Police discovered he had tried kidnap four other schoolgirls in the same area of north London on the same morning in January this year.
Waise also stopped a group of schoolboys and offered them money to use a drug known as poppers on a schoolgirl.
He told them the drug would make her unconscious and defenceless.
Disgusted, the boys walked off.

Waise, of Tottenham, north London, was last week found guilty of a charge of kidnap and four counts of attempted kidnap.
Today Judge Witold Pawlak jailed him for 12 years and recommended him for deportation.
Waise, who came to Britain from Somalia aged 10, was jailed for eight years in 2008 for rape.
He was freed after six years and should have been deported, but the order was never carried out because he launched a human rights appeal.
After Waise was found guilty last week, Judge Pawlak expressed astonishment that he had not already been removed from Britain: “If he had been deported then, all those children would not have gone through their unfortunate experiences.”

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Trevers said: “Waise went out with the plan of abducting a girl.
When deception didn’t work, he became increasingly forceful.
“Fortunately all the girls saw through his ruse and, whilst frightened, all made it away safely.

I want to praise the incredibly brave children involved in this matter – both victims and witnesses.
“They have gone through a very frightening ordeal and shown immense courage, not only at the time of the offences but also when forced to relive their experiences during the trial process.
“Offences such as these are extremely rare and, due to our increased and proactive police operation out on the streets, Waise was caught within 24 hours.”
