A butcher in New Malden, whose safety breaches led to a young man losing his hand in a mincing machine, has avoided jail.

Malik Raza, owner of Surrey Halal Meat in Kingston Road, pleaded guilty to two charges including failing to ensure safety at work and failing to report a work-related accident to the relevant authorities.

In court, Raza was handed a 7 month jail term, suspended for 18 months, and also ordered to pay £75,000 in compensation to the victim, Mr Imad Amin, as well as a £140 victim impact surcharge and undertake 100 hours of unpaid work.

Mr Amin, who was 19 at the time of the accident in 2017, was at the shop, mincing meat, when his hand got drawn into the mincing machine because the protective guard plate had been removed.

Ambulance staff could not free Mr Amin from the machine and were forced to call the London Fire Brigade, who cut parts of the machine away.

Due to the severity of his injuries, his hand had to be amputated.

Kingston Council’s investigation established that the guard plate of the mincing machine had been removed to allow for quicker mincing.

Raza also failed to report the incident to the council and had been using Mr Amin as cheap labour without proper training to use the equipment.

Investigators also found Raza’s Employer’s Liability Insurance Certificate to have a start date of 20 days after the accident.

The council only became aware of the accident when Raza gave press interviews claiming Mr Amin was a pushy customer who got himself injured after trying to mince meat without authorisation.

Mr Amin, however, was able to provide detailed knowledge of the shop’s layout to prove that Raza had been putting him to work on the machines and in the butchery there, and that he was not a customer.

Raza dropped allegations that Mr Amin was trying to steal meat and changed his plea to guilty a month before the case was due to go to trial.

Previously in 2009, Kingston Council had written to Raza drawing his attention to various safety issues, including the requirement to report such accidents.

Residents in Kingston could be banned from future full council meetings

That’s according to the town’s Independent Group which claims it’s seen leaked documents.

The leaked literature claims the Lib Dems are undertaking a “constitutional review.”

Under the proposals, residents would be banned from addressing full Council meetings by scrapping the Deputations scheme.

In addition, residents would only be able to bring a decision forward for review if they manage to raise a petition of 1,000 signatures.

That’s ten times more than the 100 signatures required.

A Kingston Council spokesman said: "The Local Government Association recently undertook an independent peer review of the Council which looked, amongst other things, at the way in which we manage and conduct our business. Their report highlights that our Constitutional processes are outdated and confusing and present a risk that a vocal minority of local residents who may or may not represent the views of the wider community could have a disproportionate influence on decision making. Our proposals are designed to directly address these concerns and improve decision making and the way in which we engage with people so that we are fully informed of the issues of concern to our local communities. No final decisions have yet been taken."

Protesting outside an abortion clinic in Twickenham is banned from today.

A Public Space Protection Order has come into effect around the BPAS Clinic in Rosslyn Road.

Intimidating behaviour or harassment is also banned along with taking photos of staff members or clients.

Richmond Council decided to enforce the PSPO following complaints from staff and nearby residents.

Cllr Liz Jaeger, Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Community Safety said:

“The Public Space Protection Order around the BPAS Clinic in Rosslyn Road is now in force following extensive consultation and approval by both Full Council and the Council’s Regulatory Committee.

“It will hopefully address the concerns expressed over a number of years by the users of the BPAS Clinic, staff in the area and residents in the vicinity of Rosslyn Road about the protests/vigils being held outside the Clinic.

“We believe the PSPO strikes the right balance, protecting the rights of patients and staff in the BPAS Clinic to use the services and go to work without fear and in privacy.”

A six-week long formal consultation held last year seeking views on the introduction of a PSPO received over 3,000 responses.

More than 80% of respondents to the consultation agreed or strongly agreed that the behaviour around the BPAS Clinic in Rosslyn Road had a detrimental effect on them or others in the area.

Additionally, 80% supported the proposal to bring in the PSPO and the buffer zone, rising to 88 per cent of those who are directly affected.

This Order will expire at midnight on the 1st of April 2022.
