The brother of murdered special constable Nisha Patel-Nasri has spoken of his relief after three men were found guilty of her murder.
Katen Patel, 35, said: "I am relieved at the verdict given yesterday (Wednesday) and that the men responsible for Nisha's death will remain in prison.
"However, this will not bring my little sister back and their brutal, savage and vicious attack on her has left me and everyone in absolute devastation.
"The attack they carried out on Nisha was barbaric, they showed her no mercy and have shown absolutely no remorse since. They have made this experience more agonising by refusing to admit to their crime and dragging my family, friends and I through this trial. It is not a man but a coward who attacks a vulnerable woman with a knife.
"Nisha never stood a chance, she was alone and defenceless."
Mrs Patel-Nasri, 29, was stabbed to death outside her Sudbury Avenue home after her husband, Fadi Nasri, arranged to have her killed so he could claim her £350,000 life insurance and start a life with his prostitute lover.
He hired underworld fixer Roger Leslie to arrange the killing, who in turn paid night club bouncer Jason Jones to carry out the stabbing.
Katen added: "The fact that the man she loved was responsible for this makes it all the more surreal and in the beginning I never imagined that he could be the one behind this wicked murder.
"There are no words that can describe the pain I suffer in losing my little Nisha, but I will remember her as a strong minded, determined and generous person who wanted to live life to it's fullest.
"She wanted to experience everything and make the most of every opportunity and was always willing to help others, there is now one less person to help and protect the public from crime.
"She had wanted to achieve so much more and these men have robbed her of that."
DCI Nick Scola, the officer in charge of the murder investigation, said: "We are pleased with today's verdict. These three convicted men had lied during both the investigation and the trial to cover up that they entered Nisha's home and killed her for their own ends.
"Nisha was a hardworking and well liked person whose life revolved around her family, work and commitment to the community as a special constable, and for her life to be ended in this way is a tragedy."
Tony Emmanuel, who drove Jones to the scene of the crime was cleared of the murder.
Sentencing of the three men found guilty will take place at the Old Bailey on June 20.
