A woman who was seen on CCTV kicking a boy in the head after he was fatally stabbed in a Tube station has been jailed for 12 years for the killing.

Sofyen Belamouadden, 15, was stabbed nine times after being chased by a crowd of youths into Victoria Tube station in March 2010.

Victoria Osoteku, 20, of Deptford, south London, was found guilty of manslaughter at the Old Bailey.

Three teenagers have been detained for life for the murder.

Judge Christopher Moss said Osoteku must share part of the responsibility for the death because she assisted in buying a set of knives during her lunch hour.

Osoteku was one of 20 defendants from south London.

She was the only female charged in connection with the incident and spent 19 days in the witness box.

Heard ‘gloating’

Judge Moss ordered Osoteku, who was 18 at the time of the incident, be detained for eight years for conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm to run concurrently.
A witness said she had been “gloating” about what happened the following day at her sixth-form college.

Judge Moss added: “You were seen to deliver the final kick to Sofyen as you were the last of the group to run away.”

Sofyen’s mother Naina Ghailan reacted angrily to the sentence.

She said: “I’m disgusted. She’s got 12 years and she’ll only serve half. She’s an adult and she should have got life. She planned the whole thing.”
