A woman once dubbed “London’s most dangerous” after trying to ruin the life of a church leader she was stalking could soon be released from prison.
Farah Damji, 53, was sentenced to five years in prison in 2016 for stalking a man she met on an online dating site.
After refusing her sexual advances, Damji made her victim’s life “hell” before being convicted.
Despite raising £5,000 through Twitter donations to appeal her sentence, Damji was jailed again in 2020 for 27 months for violating some of her many restraining orders.
This included “character killings” of people who had been protected by the restraining order, such as their former legal representatives and police officers.
She even sent a letter to the government accusing investigators of “following and harassing her.”
PC Vincent Chan was also accused of “scaring” her elderly mother and launched an online campaign to “smear” the officer’s character.
However, Damji, the daughter of a multi-million dollar property developer, did not show up for the hearing and insisted she visit her GP in Ireland to get sick leave.
Despite pleas from her attorney for the case to be adjourned, Judge Michael Gledhill convicted the 53-year-old in her absence.
He told her lawyer: “You are being treated like a puppet while she refuses to appear in court. She made herself extremely rare so the police couldn’t find her.’
The court heard Damji was first jailed in 2010 on a £17,500 housing benefit fraud.
She has been convicted multiple times of fraud, theft, perversion of justice and three counts of stalking, and has been the subject of high-profile affairs.
Prosecutor Richard Hearnden said: “The other matter involves the impersonation of a government minister’s secretary over the phone asking CPS to drop the case.
“One of the victims suffered from PTSD following their campaign to destroy his life, including allegations that he was convicted of domestic violence and investigated by the FBI for fraud.
“In short, she made the lives of three people she became entangled with hell hell.”
Damji will now serve out the remainder of her sentence pending her release in the coming days.
