Plane Passenger jailed for Drunken Tirade of Misogynistic Abuse f

"No wonder it's so easy for us to rape your white children"

Mohammed Shiraz Riaz, aged 42, of West Yorkshire, was jailed for 14 months for drunkenly hurling racist and misogynistic abuse towards women on two flights back to Britain.

The first incident happened on July 15, 2019, when Riaz began drinking Jack Daniels with cola as he sat on board a Ryanair flight from Morocco to Liverpool John Lennon airport from Morocco.

According to stewardess Jelena Zuravska, trouble began when Riaz demanded another drink.

When she said she was busy, he went to the toilet muttering “f***ing fat b**** stewardess”.

Ms Zuravska said: “I remained professional and suggested that he sat down and have something to eat and at this point, I made the decision not to serve him any more alcohol as I didn’t want to make the situation any worse.

“But he started verbally attacking me personally, saying ‘who f***ed your mother, you fat stewardess white b****’.

“He seemed to have a real hatred towards women. He was shouting, he was screaming. He gave me the feeling he was going to fight me.

“As he became more aggressive towards me and more vocal, other passengers stepped in to try and calm the situation. One even wanted to punch him on my behalf.”

Riaz even used the safety announcement she made during the descent as “an opportunity to further humiliate” her as he shouted “look at that fat f***ing b****” and blew raspberries shouting “look she’s farted”.

The crew were eventually forced to move other passengers from seats near Riaz.

Police at Liverpool were faced by a “clearly upset” Ms Zurvaska with Riaz standing behind her holding a black holdall.

As other passengers applauded his removal from the plane, Riaz presented his wrists to officers and said:

“You may as well handcuff me now. I’ve done f*** all wrong. That fat b**** has called you to make me look stupid. F***ing fat b****.”

Riaz later bit a policeman, leaving him with teeth marks on his arm.

In the police interview, Riaz said he had taken Tramadol and two ibuprofen tablets with alcohol and claimed the allegations against him had been exaggerated.

The second incident occurred on January 2, 2021, when Riaz was returning from Istanbul to Manchester.

During the flight, Riaz drunkenly shadow-boxed in the aisles and punched the seats.

He hurled a torrent of sexist and racist abuse towards cabin crew, fellow passengers, police and female airport officials.

When he was subsequently thrown off the plane, he unleashed a tirade of abuse at a female Border Force official, saying:

“You f***ing b**** I bet you didn’t get your leg over last night. You need a good s**g.”

And as he was led away to the cells, Riaz shouted:

“F*** you slag – I’ll punch your f***ing head in.”

As he was placed into a police van, Riaz continued:

“No wonder it’s so easy for us to rape your white children – you’re all a bunch of p******.

“You f***ing s***s, fat-a*** c****. White women are easy to rape. White children are easy to rape because white men are p******.”

Police bodycam footage showed Riaz squaring up to another passenger at passport control before being told to stop swearing as children were nearby.

One officer told Riaz: “You might not like us but these children do not deserve this – you stink of booze.”

Riaz replied: “I won’t shut the f*** up. You’re a fat mother f***er. Why should I f***ing shut up?”

Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court heard Riaz had 30 offences for drink-related thuggery, including assault on police and being drunk and disorderly.

In 2019, Riaz was convicted of criminal damage after he smashed up a camper van and two hotel rooms but he was freed with a community order.

He admitted being drunk on an aircraft, assaulting an emergency worker and four charges of using threatening behaviour.

Riaz was not charged with any racially aggravated offences.

In mitigation for Riaz, Ella Embleton said:

“He recognises there is no excuse for his behaviour and describes himself as behaving like a ‘Dog’.”

“He is very embarrassed by his actions on these two days.

“His underlying problem is alcohol. When he has one drink he goes on to binge drink and he gets carried away. The behaviour he displays when he is intoxicated is not reflective of the man he is when sober.”

Judge Joanne Woodward told Riaz:

“This was a sustained course of highly abusive conduct causing distress to others.

“The level of verbal abuse in the presence of families and young children was at the highest end.”

Riaz was jailed for 14 months.
