Abdul Ahaed, 29, has been convicted of racially abusing a hostel worker and then shouting antisemitic abuse at a police officer after arrest.
Ahaed was arrested on 26th November 2016 after police were called to a disturbance at a hostel in north London. During an altercation with a member of staff, Ahaed called him a “Black n*****”. Police arrived and arrested Ahaed for racial abuse. Ahaed became very abusive to police and while at the police station, shouted “Jewish c***” on two separate occasions at a police officer.
The Metropolitan Police Service Case Progression Unit in Hackney conducted an investigation Ahaed was charged with abusing the hostel worker and the officer. Ahaed pleaded guilty at Wood Green Crown Court to two counts of racially aggravated intentional harassment alarm and distress.
He was sentenced on 24th February 2017 to a 12-month community order, a 6-week curfew between 23:00 and 6:00, a 10-day rehabilitation activity requirement, a victim surcharge of £85 and payments of £100 each to the hostel worker and the police officer.
Campaign Against Antisemitism thanks the Metropolitan Police Service for dealing with this antisemitic and racist incident robustly.
