UK Aftab Ahmed sentence for UKIP beheading threat quashed

Aftab Ahmed, whose sentence has been quashed, had denied making threats to kill.

A businessman sentenced for threatening to behead a UKIP election candidate in Newcastle has won his appeal.

Aftab Ahmed, 45, was found guilty of making threats to kill and given a community order, but his conviction and sentence have now been quashed.

Newcastle magistrates heard he called David Robinson-Young in April last year after receiving a UKIP leaflet at home.

But a Newcastle Crown Court judge allowed the appeal, saying the comments had not been definitely intended.

Mr Ahmed, of Winchcombe Place, Newcastle, had been handed a 12 month community order and ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid work.

One thought on “UK: Aftab Ahmed sentence for UKIP beheading threat quashed

  1. They’ll let him free after he really does behead someone too.

    Not only that, but if a UKIP guy said even as much as Trump has said, that maybe we should pause Muslim immigration, he would be arrested and in jail for hate speech.
