EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew SteeplesOur editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

Crime shouldn’t pay

Two cases that highlight that justice is a dish that should be served

 

Two cases featured in today’s Evening Standard provide evidence that those seeking justice should never give up. The first is that of a crook named Giovanni Di Stefano and the second is that of the murder victim Martine Vik Magnussen.

In the case of Magnussen, her father has revealed that the billionaire family of the suspect in the killing, Farouk Abdulhak – who fled to Yemen hours after she was discovered under rubble in the basement of the flat where he lived in Great Portland Street – have offered ‘blood money’ as compensation in an attempt to avoid his extradition back to Britain. The victim’s father commented:

 

“I have been approached by the father’s legal representatives and other representatives of the father who have wanted meetings with me and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind what these meetings will be”.

 

“He has used various ways of trying to put meetings with me but I will not fall into that trap. I am for justice and cannot compromise on justice. I cannot trade it in”.

Di Stefano, on the other hand, the newspaper revealed, is facing eight extra years in jail for not paying £1 million in compensation to victims of a £3 million fraud he is serving 14 years for.

 

We’ve featured the con artist Di Stefano previously and news that he looks set to spend a longer period in jail pleases us no end. The longer he can be kept away from civilised society, the better. Quite the opposite, however, is true in the case of Abdulhak. The sooner he’s brought back to Britain to face justice, the better. Crime shouldn’t pay.
