Somalian convicted of setting woman on fire in London


If the races had been reversed, this would have been a major international news story.

A 23 year old Lithuanian woman had been hanging out with a Somalian male at bars in East London. However, when she refused to have sex with him, the Somalian plotted a horrific murder. The perp asked the woman to speak with him privately in an alley. He had a gas can waiting for her. Without warning he dumped the gas on her and set her on fire.

The woman was burned on 24% of her body, including her face, and is horribly disfigured for life.

The perp, Mohammed Kosar, 28, was just sentenced to 16 years for the pre-meditated attempted torture murder. A slap on the wrist considering the horrific nature of the crime.

The judge said that Kosar had shown zero remorse during the trial. The perp had several previous convictions.

From UK Mail Online…

She was so badly burnt the skin was falling off her body and she has had to undergo several graft operations. She spent six weeks in hospital and had to be intubated because her burns affected her ability to breathe. 

Ms Krivickaite suffered severe burns to the face, neck and left side of her body, and is still badly scarred after the attack.

The Lithuanian said she constantly receives sympathy because of her appalling injuries.

Kosar was arrested in February 2014 in connection with attempted murder and was convicted earlier this year.

Judge Poulet QC said: ‘You had very regular contact with Ms Krivickaite, seeing her almost daily and sometimes several times a day.

‘Ms Krivickaite has said she has no idea why you attacked her – she suggested it was maybe because she rejected your sexual advances.

‘I have reason to believe you certainly had some attachment to her, asking her repeatedly before she got into the car why she had not telephoned you all day.

‘In my view it was not just chance that the car you were in had stopped in front of the alley – this was your chosen spot for the attack.

‘You showed no regrets or change of heart when faced with the horrific consequences of your actions.’

‘This appalling attack was premeditated and in my opinion you intended to kill.

‘You have shown no remorse, although on the day of your sentencing before me you have said this should not have happened to her. Indeed it should not.’

Speaking after the case a Met Police spokeswoman said that Kosar was a drug dealer and the woman had been a customer of his. The pair are believed to have argued before the vicious attack.

Kosar was arrested as he left his home address in West Ham in east London and police found heroin and crack cocaine at his house.

On arrival at the police station Kosar admitted he had a cocked 9mm PAK blank pistol stuffed down his pants.

He has a series previous convictions – including armed robbery – since he was 15.

Kosar was sentenced to 16 years in prison for the attempted murder.
