The 17 year old boy,Boy A, who was cleared of murder and manslaughter and admitted to possessing a knife and perverting the course of justice has been sentenced to be detained for sixteen months at Manchester Crown Court this morning.
A second 17-year-old, known as Boy B, was given a four-month custodial sentence after he also admitted possession of a knife.He had previously been cleared of perverting the course of justice.
Manchester Grammar School pupil Yousef Makki was attacked in Hale Barns at the beginning of March and died of stab wounds.
His family and friends staged a peaceful protest outside the court yesterday to demand justice for the teenager.
Yousef’s mother Debbi Makki broke down in tears as she told Good Morning Britain she would never give up fighting for her son.
She said: ‘As a mum, every parent knows you will fight for your kids whatever and we never expected this to happen to us as a family so for as long as we’re all alive, we will carry on.’
