81 years for WPc killers

December 22, 2006

* Muzzaker Imtiaz Shah and Yusuf Abdillh Jamma jailed for a minimum of 35 years

* Faisal Razzaq jailed for a minimum of 11 years

TWO men were today ordered to serve at least 35 years each in jail for the “callous” murder of Pc Sharon Beshenivsky.

Muzzaker Imtiaz Shah, 25, and 20-year-old Yusuf Abdillh Jamma, the “absolutely ruthless” key members of the gang that carried out the bungled armed robbery which led to the 38-year-old mother’s death.

Jailing the pair for life at Newcastle Crown Court Mr Justice Andrew Smith told them they must both serve at least 35 years before being considered for parole. A third raider, Faisal Razzaq, was given a life sentence and told he would serve a minimum of 11 years for Pc Beshenivsky’s manslaughter.

Unrepentant Shah left the dock making gangster rap-style hand gestures to his family in the public gallery after being told he will serve at least 35 years in prison.

Shot ... WPc Teresa Milburn

The relatives, understood to include Shah’s brother and sister, silently raised their arms as he was led past them behind the glass fronted dock.

Yusuf Jamma, smartly dressed in a dark suit, white shirt and dark tie, appeared to thump his chest as he was led from the dock.

During the sentencing Pc Teresa Milburn, who was shot and injured during their robbery, sat with Paul Beshenivsky, the husband of murdered Sharon Beshenivsky, with a faint smile crossing her face as the minimum tariffs were read out.

The colour drained from the police officer’s face as trial judge Mr Justice Andrew Smith referred to a statement she had earlier made about the impact of the robbery.

In that statement she said: “The public see me as a police officer but under my uniform I am a person that has a family and life.”

The judge said: “There could hardly be a starker contrast between the dedication of the officers and the callousness of those that killed Sharon Beshenivsky and wounded Teresa Milburn.”
That's bad stuff B.L:

Too bad the country has to keep them for all those years, when a bullet in the head would see justice served.

Did the police have guns, or do they still patrol without them?

Very sorry to hear this news.
