This petition is to demonstrate support for Metab Yasin, a former teacher at the Nottingham Emmanuel School.
The people signing this petition believe that Mr Yasin should NOT be given a custodial sentence.
He tried to support a former student as she was experiencing problems at home with her mother. She read too much into this support and tried to make a pass at Mr Yasin. He rejected her advances and in turn, she retaliated by saying she would get him back. Humiliated by the rejection, she embarked on a journey to ruin Mr Yasin's life. She accused him of having a relationship with her whilst at school.
Metab Yasin has now been convicted on 5 counts of sexual activity whilst in a position of trust and has also been acquitted on 4 counts of sexual intercourse with a minor. The jury unanimously found Mr Yasin both innocent and guilty BASED ON THE SAME EVIDENCE; her word against Mr Yasin’s, a highly respected pastoral leader. The ‘smoke without fire’ principle adopted by the prosecution based their case against Mr Yasin on associations made with the claimant AFTER she left school due to her ongoing problems at home with her mother.
