Illegal immigrant hired as an Army interpreter jailed after he groomed schoolgirl, 13, on Facebook and got her pregnant

An illegal immigrant who was hired as an interpreter for the British Army after fleeing war-torn Afghanistan groomed a schoolgirl on Facebook and got her pregnant, a court heard.

Asif Ghanbari, 19, started a new life in the UK after he was dumped at a service station on the M6 after fleeing to Britain on the back of a lorry in 2008.

However, Ghanbari, of Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in a young offenders’ institution today after pleading guilty to sexual activity with a child.

Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard how Ghanbari fled the war-torn Helmand Province six years ago and forged a new life after being dumped at Stafford Services on the M6.
