Student in court on knife possession charge

Bournemouth Echo: IN COURT: Hend June Elworfalli IN COURT: Hend June Elworfalli

A STUDENT was arrested for possession of a 19-inch kitchen knife after her housemates told police they had been threatened.

Libyan bank worker Hend June Elworfalli who is studying at Kings College in Bournemouth, admitted the offence when she appeared before the town’s magistrates.

The court was told Elworfalli, who now lives in Charminster Road, became involved in an argument with housemates at around 8am on October 18 last year. They told police she grabbed a knife, held it up towards them and made some threats before leaving the property. The offence was reported to police who traced her to Braidley Road and discovered the knife in her bag.

Defending herself, Elworfalli told the court: “I am here to study, not have an argument. A new resident and another girl worked together against me.

“They kept knocking my door and asking me to clean the bathroom.

“I asked the landlord to speak to them but nobody did anything.

“I didn’t intend to harm anybody.

“I know I made a mistake but I was worried – I threw the knife in my bag without thought.”

She was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay court costs of £100 and a £15 victim surcharge.

If she doesn't like our ways of policing, and the fact we are not allowed to carry knifes or threaten people with knifes ,then get the first available plane back to Libya.

Sounds to me like the age old story of shared housing - there is always one who just won't pull their weight and do their share of cleaning & tidying. Perhaps she thinks she is too good to put a cloth over the bath & basin after she has used it - in which case she should make that abundantly clear to whoever she next decides to house share with …….. dirty madam! They are your HOUSEMATES not your flaming CLEANERS!!!

We should do that to any foreign national living here who commits an offence. I don't care if you're an ayslum seeker, immigrant (illegal or otherwise). If you break the law your punishment is a one way ticket out of the country. If you have family here then they get to go with you.

Just think, we could solve overcrowding in prisons, housing shortage and a drain on the benefits system all in one go.

What do you think the chances are of this happening? I'm guessing zero, too much bleeding heart liberalism and interference from Europe!

She was tried by the Magistrates - they have very little power

The question that needs to be asked is why this was not committed to the Crown Court

Why would that happen?

Only Sikhs carry a small dagger or 'Kirpan'.
Even then only baptised Sikhs (Kalsah) carry a very small version, even that is rare, though its one of the 5 Articles Of Faith. Sikhs are required to protect EVERYONE irrespective of creed, colour or sex from prejudice etc. something I doubt you would do? It's illegal in most cases to carry a 'Kalsah' though it can be argued on religious grounds'
My point is this lady looks likely to be a Muslim. Also she's from North Africa & from a Muslim country. Muslims don't carry bladed articles for any faith reasons so it would be as ignorant & stupid as your' comment to suggest otherwise. :)
