Australia: Afghan sex offender set free due to 'cultural differences'

An Afghan refugee to Australia who was also found guilty last year of child molestation, has just had all charges of attempted kidnapping of a four-year-old girl thrown out of court, as reported by the right-of-center news portal Front Page Magazine on March 25, 2014.

Already convicted sex offender Ali Jaffari recently had all charges against him for the Australian equivalent of kidnapping and attempted kidnapping thrown out of court.

Most recent brush with the law Down Under ...

In the Aussie state of Victoria, the city of Geelong's Magistrate Ron Saines claimed he would have trouble finding the Afghanistan native guilty of the kidnapping charges due to the "cultural differences" could very well legally be considered a "mitigating factor" in his wanting to snatch up the child.

Magistrate Saines also declared the prosecution's seemingly open-and-shut case against Jaffari "fell short of criminality."

According to Police Prosecutor, Sergeant Brooke Shears, Jaffari was loitering about last January at an West Geelong cricket park where an unidentified 4-year-old girl was visiting with her father and brother.

As the father concentrated on practice with his son, his daughter was batting on her own.

That when Sgt. Shears testified that Jaffari approached the little girl and "grabbed the child’s hand and began to lead her away before she looked up, saw it wasn’t her father, started crying and pulled her hand away."

The police sergeant also went on to testify:

The victim’s father turned, saw what was happening and yelled at Jaffari, 'What do you think you’re doing?' The victim ran crying to her father and he comforted her while Jaffari walked off around the oval.

Upon being apprehended by local police, Jaffari informed the police of his cultural outlook on children: "For us is not an issue."

Community service for sex conviction ...

Jaffari was found guilty last August in the same courthouse for the indecent assault on one young boy and attempted indecent assault on a second.

Upon being found guilty of his sex offenses last year, Jaffari never saw the inside of an Australian prison. Instead, the convicted sex offender was ordered to a "two-year Community Corrections Order with 300 hours unpaid community work."

As previously covered in 2012 by Examiner.com, the US Army floated a draft of a training manual for troops shipping out for the Afghanistan Theater of Operations with effectively admitted that pedophilia was one of the "cultural norms" troops must be mindful of when dealing with locals:

Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member."

Listed among the "taboo" subjects of conversation include;

  • Any criticism of pedophilia.
  • Mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct.
  • Advocating women's rights.
  • Anything related to Islam.
