At a press conference this morning, chief executive of the council, Carole

TAXI for Shafiq: Ex-Mayor of Milton Keynes linked to immigration 'racket'

Disgraced sex scandal mayor Subhan Shafiq is linked to an alleged
immigration racket that provides false documents for foreign workers, the
Citizen Newspaper can exclusively reveal.
An office at the councillor's business premises charges people £500 to
'pass' an English language test so they can be granted a UK visa.
Yet the certificates for the test, which should cost £50, are suspected
fakes with the name of the company spelled wrongly.
Mr Shafiq denies having any involvement, saying: "Rockfield Immigration just
rent a room in my premises."
This week the Citizen is handing evidence of this alleged fraud to police
and urging officers to launch an investigation into Mr Shafiq, who is a
member of the Thames Valley Police Advisory Group.
We are also echoing calls and petitions from the public for him to resign as
a councillor.
The alleged racket centres around Rockfield Immigration, one of a number of
businesses registered at a property owned by Mr Shafiq at one Wolverton
address.
At the same premises he is registered as director of a motor accident claims
company, a tuition centre, and an international aerospace company.
"Subhan has a finger in so many pies and he does things to help people that
do not always seem right. But he is a very influential man in his community
and many are scared to speak out against him," said one source.
Over the past two decades the 42-year-old stalwart of Wolverton Mosque has
risen from taxi driver to a wealthy businessman with a portfolio of rental
houses.
But when Mr Shafiq was elected as councillor four years ago he neglected to
declare some of his business interests. He became Mayor in May but his
downfall began three months later when it was discovered he had given a
reference for his friend, convicted rapist Nadeem Kiani, to receive a taxi
licence.
A whistleblower has claimed two friends paid Subhan Shafiq £500 each for
fake immigration test certificates – without even sitting an exam.
"Their English was very bad. One of them could hardly speak a word. They
didn't have to have to take the test but got the certificates anyway.
"They looked fake because there was a spelling mistake on them," said the
whistleblower, who will talk to police. "
An undercover Citizen reporter called Rockfield Immigration on Wednesday
pretending to be an employer wanting English and Life in the UK certificates
for worker's visas.
We spoke to an Akhtar Hussain and said we had dealt with a Mr Shafiq on
previous occasions.
Mr Hussain said: "Subhan Shafiq? Yes, he can do this for you. First he needs
to see your people and their paperwork.
"The next course is on November 6."
When we enquired about the cost of the test Mr Hussain said it would be
around £400- £500.
Mr Shafiq would "sort it out", he said.

In Her Own Words : Rebecca, 24, was brutally attacked on her way home from a night out...

There's been a lot of talk about the price of a Taxi.
Many people say we are expensive and that they would rather use the cheap minicab touts. 

But what price do you put on your safety?

Below is a story sent to Taxi Leaks by a victim of a minicab predator. Just one of the alleged 21 minicab rapes from the last year. 
That's just the ones that were reported, the Met Police suggest 90% of rapes and sexual assaults go unreported. This factor would put the yearly figure closer to a staggering 200, or to put it another way, approximately 4 a week.  

The fact is, a safe Taxi home is not expensive,
ITS PRICELESS.


Rebecca's Story:

"I can still remember certain smells, that send me into a state of panic. The vanilla air freshener, his breath from the Red Bull he kept swigging and his cheap aftershave was pungent.

These smells always take me back to that moment he held me down and raped me in the back of his minicab.

I'd been out clubbing with my friend in Shoreditch and it was the early hours of the morning. We'd had a good drink and now ready for bed, we stood on the kerb looking for the orange light of a Taxi to take us home 

Just as we were about to phone for a taxi, a private hire minicab pulled up. The driver asked if we wanted a cab. He asked us where we were going, my friend Brenda lived on Garret Lane, then me onto Putney. He quoted a ridiculously cheap fare and 
even agreed to go via McDonald's Wandsworth drive through as Brenda was hungry.

We arrived at my friends house. 'Text me as soon as you're home' she said.

The minicab drove off again but stopped at a newsagents. 'I'm thirsty,' he said. 'Do you want anything?'

I asked for a Lucozade, thinking it might help sober me up. 

But when he handed it to me, I was aware that the seal had been broken. Halfway through drinking it, I realised it seemed to taste weird, so I stopped drinking. I never thought for one moment that he'd actually spiked my drink.

At some point, Brenda called my phone;
'Where are you?' she asked worriedly. 
But before I could answer, the driver snatched the phone and answered 'She wants to come home with me", then he laughed, which really freaked me out.

Things were becoming more blurry and I could hear Brenda going mad, shouting at him to take me straight home, but he just laughed. He slipped the phone back into my bag and I started to relax slightly as the area seemed familiar. 
But at the last minute, he didn't turn into my street. Instead, he pulled into a deserted side street. 

He got out and came round to my door and then roughly pulled me out. That's when I started to scream. 

He grabbed my neck in a head lock and said he would kill me if a screemed again. He opened the rear door and pushed me onto the back seat and climbed on top of me, ripping at my clothing. My whole body froze, and I blacked out.

When I came round, he was still on top of me. I could hear him, I could smell him, but I couldn't feel him. It was like my body, my mind, my ability to talk, everything was paralysed. 

When he was done, he dragged me out on the pavement, almost naked and he drove off.

I lay there crying until a young couple in a passing car pulled up and called the police. Brenda had heard everything, as when he'd put the mobile in my bag, he failed to turn it off.

Through CCTV the driver was traced and arrested. Although the evidence against him was strong, he denied rape. When I stood up in court, his barrister called me a liar and said I'd offered sex in exchange for the fare. I felt isolated and frightened all over again.

But with the witness statements from my friend and the young couple, plus the police drug test result, the verdict came back guilty. I broke down, overwhelmed to know that people had believed me. The driver was sentenced to nine years.

It's been tough, but with counselling, I've finally realised that although the attack will always be a part of me, I won't let it take over my life."

TAXI-GATE: Ex-Milton Keynes Mayor vouched for asylum seeker who is now a convicted paedophile

Sex scandal mayor Subhan Shafiq has admitted giving a character reference to
ANOTHER serious sex offender - an asylum seeker who is now a convicted
paedophile.
This time Councillor Shafiq vouched for would-be cab driver Malik Aftab
Ahmed when he applied to come to the UK from Pakistan.
But after his application was granted Malik was arrested and convicted of
four counts of serious sexual assault - two of them involving a girl under
the age of 16.
He is currently serving a five-year prison sentence and will be on the sex
offenders register for life.
Mr Shafiq told the Citizen his Home Office reference was given "many years
ago" before Malik committed the offences.
"I have not spoken to this man for over five years and I am horrifed at
these offences," he said.
It is understood Ahmed worked as a taxi driver, though Milton Keynes Council
can find no record of him having a licence locally.
Mr Shafiq resigned as Mayor of Milton Keynes in August after it emerged that
a taxi driver he personally vouched for was a convicted rapist. Nadeem Ahmed
Kiani had four previous convictions for serious sexual offences, where he
and a friend worked together to threaten women with weapons before raping
them.
Although Mr Shafiq is no longer mayor he has refused to step down as a
councillor -and his party has encouraged him to stay.
Last week the Citizen exclusively revealed Mr Shafiq had been linked to an
alleged immigration racket that provides false citizenship test certificates
for foreign workers. Police have now requested to see our evidence.
On Wednesday, as the Citizen went to press, a spokesman for Lib Dem
headquarters in London vowed an "urgent investigation" would be held.
Meanwhile a Home Office spokesperson said: "We will consider all evidence we
receive concerning allegations of fraudulent behaviour in the immigration
system."
Already one leading Lib Dem has admitted Mr Shafiq may have to stand down.
Councillor Ric Brackenbury told the Citizen: "Any councillor only serves as
a representative of their electors with their consent.
"If they have lost their confidence or no longer wish to continue, the cost
has to be balanced against the lack of effective representation in that
ward."
Mr Brackenbury even suggested the public should have the right to sack
councillors.
He said: "MPs are discussing recall measures at the moment - maybe it's time
to look at similar measures for councillors to give power to our residents
to withdraw that consent, should they wish."

TAXI LICENSE SCANDAL AT MILTON KEYNES

LICENSING OF TAXIS IN MILTON KEYNES - SCANDAL BY MAYOR - BUT STILL WONT RESIGN FROM THE COUNCIL IN MILTON KEYNES
Milton Keynes Taxi Licensing Scandal from Milton Keynes Borough Council


Rapist taxi driver in Milton Keynes: How this scandal unfolded and what happens now!!!!!

TO BE SAFE FROM THESE SIMPLY CALL CYBERCABZ 01908 263263

A rapist was twice given a license to drive a taxi in Milton Keynes.
The Mayor, who personally vouched for the man's good character, has now resigned. Another sex offender is still driving in the city.
This is your guide to the scandal which has rocked Milton Keynes Council.
A press conference was held at Milton Keynes Civic Offices to announce that Mayor Subhan Shafiq had stood down over revelations he personally vouched for a convicted rapist to be a city taxi driver.

Chief executive of the council Carole Mills and Leader of the council Pete Marland called the scandal a "serious issue regarding taxi licensing".
*When was the rapist driving in Milton Keynes?
Nadeem Ahmed Kiani worked as a driver from September 2011 to August 2014.
He received a private hire driver's license in 2011.
This was suspended in April 2012 but then given back to him in May 2012.
He received a Hackney Carriage license in March 2014.
Both licenses were revoked on August 22, 2014.
*What is his criminal background?
In 1991 Mr Kiani was given a conditional discharge for one year for both attempting to obtain property by deception, and theft.
In 1994 he was sentenced to eight years in prison for two buggery offences, assault with intent to commit buggery and rape. He served four years in prison.
*What is his connection to former mayor Subhan Shafiq?
Mr Shafiq told the Citizen he was not close friends with the convicted rapist and he was shocked to learn of his criminal past.
Documents seen by the Citizen say Mr Shafiq claimed that he had known Mr Kiani since childhood and could vouch for his "good current character and his family 
circumstances".
*Who gave Mr Kiani permission to drive a taxi?
He received his private hire licence from two council committees. The Hackney carriage licence was granted by an unknown council officer.
*Who else has resigned from their posts?
Lib Dem councilor Stuart Burke was chairman of the regulatory sub-committee in May 2012 and Labour councilor Gladstone McKenzie was on the panel alongside Councilor Alan Bradburn.
Mr Burke and Mr McKenzie have resigned from their posts. Mr Bradburn is no 
longer a councilor.
*Who has stepped down as a councillor?
No one.
*Are any other sex offenders driving cabs or private hire vehicles in Milton Keynes?
The Citizen understands that another sex offender is still working in the city.
An investigation by Milton Keynes Council found seven people were a "cause for concern".
Five drivers with declared convictions remain on the city's roads, while two have had their licences revoked.
One surrendered his plates voluntarily and after three interviews another has also handed back his plates. They will both no longer be allowed to drive taxis in Milton Keynes.
*What is Milton Keynes 
Council doing now?
A detailed review of all taxi license holders is underway and a new taxi licensing 
policy has been drafted up to be considered by the cabinet this month.
*Is it safe to travel by taxi or private hire vehicle in Milton Keynes?
Council Leader Pete Marland says the council are looking at every single issued taxi licence, but that "the vast 
majority are good, hard-
working people" and the small 
minority of those for concern have been identified.
*Has anyone apologized?
Ex-Mayor Mr Shafiq said he was "sorry for the situation".
The former vice-chairman of the regulatory sub-committee, Councilor McKenzie, said it was with "deepest regret" that he made the error after "many years of service to community and offered his "sincerest and most heartfelt" apologies.
Lib Dem Councilor Stuart Burke said it was with regret he decided to resign but said it was clear on reflection he made an "error of judgment".
The Lib Dems group leader, Councilor Douglas 
McCall said his members made the "honorable decision" to stand down.
*What should members of the public do if they are concerned about any of the private-hire or Hackney carriage drivers?
Call Thames Valley Police on 101.

"If they have lost their confidence or no longer wish to continue, the cost
has to be balanced against the lack of effective representation in that
ward."
Mr Brackenbury even suggested the public should have the right to sack
councillors.
He said: "MPs are discussing recall measures at the moment - maybe it's time
to look at similar measures for councillors to give power to our residents
to withdraw that consent, should they wish."

TAXI LICENSE SCANDAL AT MILTON KEYNES

LICENSING OF TAXIS IN MILTON KEYNES - SCANDAL BY MAYOR - BUT STILL WONT RESIGN FROM THE COUNCIL IN MILTON KEYNES
Milton Keynes Taxi Licensing Scandal from Milton Keynes Borough Council


Rapist taxi driver in Milton Keynes: How this scandal unfolded and what happens now!!!!!

TO BE SAFE FROM THESE SIMPLY CALL CYBERCABZ 01908 263263

A rapist was twice given a license to drive a taxi in Milton Keynes.
The Mayor, who personally vouched for the man's good character, has now resigned. Another sex offender is still driving in the city.
This is your guide to the scandal which has rocked Milton Keynes Council.
A press conference was held at Milton Keynes Civic Offices to announce that Mayor Subhan Shafiq had stood down over revelations he personally vouched for a convicted rapist to be a city taxi driver.

Chief executive of the council Carole Mills and Leader of the council Pete Marland called the scandal a "serious issue regarding taxi licensing".
*When was the rapist driving in Milton Keynes?
Nadeem Ahmed Kiani worked as a driver from September 2011 to August 2014.
He received a private hire driver's license in 2011.
This was suspended in April 2012 but then given back to him in May 2012.
He received a Hackney Carriage license in March 2014.
Both licenses were revoked on August 22, 2014.
*What is his criminal background?
In 1991 Mr Kiani was given a conditional discharge for one year for both attempting to obtain property by deception, and theft.
In 1994 he was sentenced to eight years in prison for two buggery offences, assault with intent to commit buggery and rape. He served four years in prison.
*What is his connection to former mayor Subhan Shafiq?
Mr Shafiq told the Citizen he was not close friends with the convicted rapist and he was shocked to learn of his criminal past.
Documents seen by the Citizen say Mr Shafiq claimed that he had known Mr Kiani since childhood and could vouch for his "good current character and his family 
circumstances".
*Who gave Mr Kiani permission to drive a taxi?
He received his private hire licence from two council committees. The Hackney carriage licence was granted by an unknown council officer.
*Who else has resigned from their posts?
Lib Dem councilor Stuart Burke was chairman of the regulatory sub-committee in May 2012 and Labour councilor Gladstone McKenzie was on the panel alongside Councilor Alan Bradburn.
Mr Burke and Mr McKenzie have resigned from their posts. Mr Bradburn is no 
longer a councilor.
*Who has stepped down as a councillor?
No one.
*Are any other sex offenders driving cabs or private hire vehicles in Milton Keynes?
The Citizen understands that another sex offender is still working in the city.
An investigation by Milton Keynes Council found seven people were a "cause for concern".
Five drivers with declared convictions remain on the city's roads, while two have had their licences revoked.
One surrendered his plates voluntarily and after three interviews another has also handed back his plates. They will both no longer be allowed to drive taxis in Milton Keynes.
*What is Milton Keynes 
Council doing now?
A detailed review of all taxi license holders is underway and a new taxi licensing 
policy has been drafted up to be considered by the cabinet this month.
*Is it safe to travel by taxi or private hire vehicle in Milton Keynes?
Council Leader Pete Marland says the council are looking at every single issued taxi licence, but that "the vast 
majority are good, hard-
working people" and the small 
minority of those for concern have been identified.
*Has anyone apologized?
Ex-Mayor Mr Shafiq said he was "sorry for the situation".
The former vice-chairman of the regulatory sub-committee, Councilor McKenzie, said it was with "deepest regret" that he made the error after "many years of service to community and offered his "sincerest and most heartfelt" apologies.
Lib Dem Councilor Stuart Burke said it was with regret he decided to resign but said it was clear on reflection he made an "error of judgment".
The Lib Dems group leader, Councilor Douglas 
McCall said his members made the "honorable decision" to stand down.
*What should members of the public do if they are concerned about any of the private-hire or Hackney carriage drivers?
Call Thames Valley Police on 101.
