Rapist Minicab Driver is Jailed 16 Years After Attack

THORNTON HEATH, SOUTH LONDON; ERITH, KENT
A pensioner who raped a drunken passenger 16 years ago was jailed for just five years today (Tues).

Cypriot Mustafa Hassan, now 68, attacked the woman as he drove her home following a night out celebrating her 29th birthday in central London, the Old Bailey heard.

His victim, who had earlier been separated from her husband, woke up in the reclined front seat of Hassan’s minicab the following morning to find herself being raped.

Hassan was caught by a DNA match after being arrested for driving an unlicensed cab in 2005
