Ex-lover who posted sex video on Facebook after being dumped is jailed


A controlling former boyfriend who posted revenge porn films and photos on social media of the girl who broke up with him, has been jailed.

Hassan Azam, 20, was described as “a brute and a nasty bully” by a crown court judge who heard that the spurned lover lied to his former girlfriend’s work colleagues about her having a baby “sucked out of her” and warned them she would end up on a missing persons list.

He went on to post a video of him and his ex having sex on Facebook and posted images on an Instagram account set up to fool people into thinking it was hers, in a move designed to humiliate his victim.

The revenge porn postings were made while Azam was out on bail having already been reported to police by his ex for making harassing phonecalls.

A crown court judge blasted the officers who agreed to free Azam on bail, telling the 20-year-old defendant that he should never have been freed to commit the offences.

Azam was jailed for 28 months after admitting stalking the girl, intending to harass her and posting sexually explicit images of her online without her consent.

The court was told that over the course of three successive days in September, following the break-up of their relationship, Azam bombarded the girl with 132 text messages and 267 phone calls.
Three days later he subjected the girl, who we have chosen not to name, to around 100 further text messages, indicating he wanted to get back together with her.

Alisdair Smith, prosecuting, told the court: “There were also a series of calls made by the defendant to her workplace.

“For example, it was a common theme that he would speak to other people who she worked with and say that she had a baby – his baby – sucked out of her, even though she’d not been pregnant, let alone had an abortion.”

The girl reported the harassment to the police and Azam was arrested on September 14.

After being interviewed he was released on bail with the condition not to contact his victim.

The bail condition failed to stop the harassment however and further abusive calls were made on October 25. On the same day Azam added the girl to a group Facebook chat.

He then posted a video of him having sex with the girl, which had been taken consensually when they were in a relationship.

Mr Smith said: “At the time, she hadn’t blocked him on Facebook as she remained concerned he had images of a sexual nature and otherwise wouldn’t have known what he was doing with them.

“Even if she had consented to the images being taken, she clearly wasn’t consenting to them being put on Facebook.

“It was designed to humiliate her with people she knew, as a result of the breakdown of their relationship.”

Azam then made reference to another video of the pair of them having sex, which the girl took to be a veiled threat that he would also post that online.

Threats continued, with Azam phoning the girl’s boss at work to say his victim would soon “be on the missing list” and would be “six feet down under (sic)”.

The girl went back to the police when Azam created a bogus Instagram account with a username similar to the one the girl genuinely used. He used it to post intimate images of the pair having sex.

The court was told that Azam has 13 previous convictions – including harassing an ex girlfriend, for which he served four months in jail, and possessing a knuckleduster in a public place when he followed her.

He was jailed for 12 weeks in January after being convicted of an offence of battery against the most recent ex girlfriend, and in August last year threw a coke bottle at her in a car park.

Azam’s lawyer, David Smith, admitted there was “very little to mitigate the severity of the offences.”

“The relationship turned sour and it is quite clear the complainant did not want to be in a relationship with the defendant, which the defendant could not accept.

“It is quite clear a lot of the messages are sent out of desperation. Effectively he is trying to encourage the victim to renew or keep the relationship alive. He uses increasingly desperate language.”

Passing sentence at Aylesbury Crown Court, Judge Francis Sheridan told Azam: “Your record shows you are simply a brute.

“That’s what it comes down to. You have picked on a previous girlfriend, when you were sentenced to a very moderate term for pursuing a course of conduct amounting to harassment.

“You are just a bully – and a nasty one at that.

“From the outset you were controlling of her. You were engaged in recording sexual activity on an iPhone and iPad, but what you wouldn’t do was allow her to go about her own business.

“You hit her, you pulled her hair, she was threatened that her whole family would be hurt or you would commit suicide, which of course you had no intention of doing.

“Truly wickedly, you rang her workplace and made a cruel reference to the fact she had a baby, quote, ‘sucked out’. It was your vile suggestion she had an abortion with your child; none of that was true.

“Incredibly, and I’m absolutely critical of those who made this decision, this man was bailed again. It’s quite beyond belief.

“Courts are instructed to take domestic violence seriously. You should never have been granted bail.

“You made punishment postings on the Internet of you engaged in sexual activity with her. It was done to humiliate her and punish her for not going back out with you.

“By that stage she had reached commonsense.”

Jailing him for 22 months for stalking with fear of violence, Judge Sheridan said: “This was sustained, cruel and designed to mentally abuse the victim, and you committed offences on bail.”

Azam, of Shelley Road, Luton, Bedfordshire, was handed a consecutive six month sentence for disclosing a private sexual photograph or film. He had admitted both offences at an earlier hearing.

Judge Sheridan also made Azam the subject of a restraining order that will last until further notice, banning him from being within 25 metres of his victim, going to her house and from contacting her in any way.

He is also barred from posting any form of sexual imagery online.

Judge Sheridan said: “This order is necessary. Without it, she’s at risk of further abuse at your hands.”
