child sex gang leader is set to be released from prison a staggering 17 years early.
Mubarek Ali was sentenced to 22 years in prison for acting as one of the ringleaders of a sickening
child grooming gang
that targeted girls as young as 13.
Their shocking abuse came to light when girls spoke of their traumatic experiences to youth workers in Telford.
Ali, 34, was captured as part of Operation Chalice in 2013.
After serving just under five years of his sentence, Ali is set to be released on licence as early as November.
Telford MP Lucy Allen said that Ali’s release was "wrong", and could lead to him rejoining the community where his victims continue to live.
In an open letter to the
, the MP said victims are “living in fear” and should have been better consulted ahead of Ali’s release.
She said: "Victims and members of the public would have expected a 22 year sentence to mean that the community could have time to heal and victims would be able to get on with their lives.
"What we see in this case is that the one of the main perpetrators is being released into the community only five years after the trial.
"This is clearly of enormous concern to victims in this case, especially those who gave evidence in court.
"What is unacceptable that in this case there was no attempt by the authorities to reach out these young women and prepare them for this wholly unexpected event.
"Worse still is the prospect that this person may be returned to Telford and naturally this has caused huge anxiety to victims."
Operation Chalice revealed harrowing evidence of a network of men targeting vulnerable girls for sex.
Some girls were even subjected to child prostitution at the hands of the Telford paedophile ring.
Seven men were finally convicted at Worcester Crown Court in 2013, after cases stretching over two years.
Ali and his brother Ahdel were leading players in the gang.
Ahdel Ali, 27, known as Eddie, was given a 26-year extended sentence – 18 years’ immediate custody with an additional eight-year period on licence after release.
