Rochdale child sex gang ringleader appeals against deportation

Shabir Ahmed tells tribunal his trial was ‘institutionally racist’ as he resists efforts to deport him to Pakistan

The ringleader of a Rochdale child sex grooming gang cited human rights laws as he launched an appeal against deportation from Britain.

Shabir Ahmed, 63 – described by a judge as a “violent hypocritical bully” – has written to the European court of human rights (ECHR) claiming his convictions for child sex offences were a conspiracy to “scapegoat” Muslims.

Ahmed, serving 22 years in jail, was convicted in 2012 of being the ringleader of a group of Asian men who preyed on girls as young as 13 in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.

The girls were plied with drink and drugs before they were “passed around” for sex.

Senior judge slams lawyers for obstructing Rochdale child sex grooming gang deportation case

Lawyers are helping a child sex grooming gang avoid attempts to deport them by obstructing the courts and “weakening the rule of law”, Britain’s most senior immigration judge has warned.

Mr Justice Bernard McCloskey accused taxpayer funded lawyers representing the gang of treating the immigration tribunal, which will decide whether they should be allowed to remain in Britain, with “sustained and marked disrespect”.

The case has raised fears that convicted criminals are adopting a strategy of timewasting and obstructing the courts in an attempt to put off any possible deportation from the UK as long as possible.

  1. As sure as night follows day it was inevitable one or more of the guilty grooming gang would play the race card. Ho Hum.
    It also follows that none of our three local MP’s will speak up in defence of the law nor will they comment on Shabir Ahmed’s ridiculous claim his trial was ‘institutionally racist’.
    Perhaps votes are at risk?


  2. If he this vile excuse for humanity wins his appeal there is no justice left in England and British people may as well give in to Sharia law now. …. but….. they won’t like it if it happens….

    .Immigrants in one of the most peaceful countries in which I live deport criminals and
    over stayers from time to time without whinging. Properly processed immigrants are well aware that deportation for criminal activity results in deportation. This renders his claim a nonsense should not be subject to a taxpayer funded appeal.

    Some Old Bailey Axioms state
    The law of the wise is the fountain of Life
    The welfare of the people is supreme.
    Right lives by Law and Law subsists by power…….

    Race ,colour and creed have nothing to do with the implementation of the law. and Mr Ahmed already knows it but he has learned for himself that the ‘race card’ has served him well up to now in over tolerant Britain….Surprise him a free flight. I wouldn’t mind a few of my taxes used for deporting criminals; economy class only…….
