'Twin-Swap' Couple Guilty Of Child Cruelty

Mike McCarthy, North of England correspondent
A couple who concealed the neglect of their baby daughter by showing social workers her healthy twin sister have been found guilty of child cruelty and neglect.

Mohammed Karolia, 29, and his wife Nafisa, 22, inflicted more than 20 injuries on the seven-month-old baby including a fractured rib, arm and leg.
The child, known as Girl M, also suffered two brain bleeds, bruises to the face and bleeding to the eyes. The girl later died after she started struggling to breathe.
The injuries were described at Preston Crown Court as "a battery of non-accidental injuries".
A jury heard that, whenever social workers or health visitors called, the parents are believed to have shown them Girl M's uninjured sister and made up excuses for why their other child was not at home.
Both parents were making a concerted effort to keep Girl M out of the way of the nurse and the social worker so that they would not suspect the ill-treatment she was suffering.
Joe Boyd, prosecuting the Karolias
The court heard that Mohammed Karolia, of Blackburn, Lancashire, noticed one morning that his daughter was struggling to breathe.
The baby was taken to hospital but died of bronchopneumonia. The couple were not held responsible for the deaths.
Joe Boyd, prosecuting, told the court the injuries had been wilfully inflicted.
"The sheer number of injuries, the number of different and separate incidents there must have been to cause them, the timescale from months to hours before death in which they were caused and the lack of any plausible explanation from the parents as to how they were caused, leads inexplicably to the conclusion that they were inflicted deliberately," he said.
Mr Boyd added: "Both parents were making a concerted effort to keep Girl M out of the way of the nurse and the social worker so that they would not suspect the ill-treatment she was suffering."
He said the alleged identity swap was uncovered by discrepancies in the head, weight and height measurements previously taken from Girl M and her sister.
"Growth charts for both twins make it clear that the parents have at some stage swapped the babies," Mr Boyd told the jury.
"They have very probably done so to seek to conceal the mounting injuries being suffered by the child who died - always the bigger twin but, for some reason, rejected and abused by them."
Mohammed Karolia, a taxi driver, and his wife denied the charges of child cruelty and neglect.
Remanding the couple in custody, Mr Justice Irwin told them: "You will both inevitably face considerable prison sentences.
"As you know, this was a bad case of child cruelty. However, I want to know as much as possible about it before deciding the length of sentence."
He adjourned the case for pre-sentence and psychiatric reports. The hearing will take place on a date to be fixed in October.

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
