Trio sentenced for affray following death of Mariam Moustafa


Three girls have been sentenced for affray following the death of 18-year-old Mariam Moustafa.

Mariah Fraser, now 20, Britania Hunter, now 18, and a 16-year-old girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, appeared at Nottingham Crown Court today (Friday 14 June 2018) for sentencing.

The 16-year-old girl had her case sent to the youth court, with a view to making a referral order.

Three more girls, aged 16, 17 and 18, have also previously pleaded guilty to affray.

These girls, who can’t be identified for legal reasons, are due to be sentenced at a youth court hearing held at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on June 19.

Mariam was admitted to hospital after she was assaulted during an incident in Parliament Street, Nottingham, at about 8pm on Tuesday 20 February 2018.

She died in hospital, of a stroke, on Wednesday 14 March 2018.

Two independent pathologists who carefully examined the case could not prove any causal link between Mariam’s death and the assault.

Chief Superintendent Rob Griffin, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “To lose a child is a terrible tragedy and our deepest sympathies go to Mariam’s family who have been left devastated by her death.

“These girls showed persistent aggression towards Mariam and what was even more disgusting was that there was filming of what happened and this footage was shared on social media.

“We understand the depth of interest, sadness and concern in Egypt and the UK over Mariam’s death and specialist officers continue to provide her family with support.”
