Anger as members of Rochdale grooming gang get legal aid to fight deportation… after already receiving £1m to unsuccessfully defend their criminal charges
- They paedophiles preyed on girls as young as 13 during a sickening operation
- Shabir Ahmed, Abdul Aziz, Adil Khan and Abdul Rauf are fighting deportation
- They have received close to a million pounds after getting the same for their trial
- By contrast Charlie Gard’s parents were denied aid to fight to keep their son alive
Members of an Asian grooming gang are being given legal aid to fight deportation – after it emerged they have already received more than a £1million to unsuccessfully defend criminal charges.
There was outrage last night as it was revealed the paedophiles – who preyed on girls as young as 13 – are getting more taxpayers’ money to battle moves to strip them of their British passports and send them back to Pakistan.
The case is particularly sickening because, despite the depraved nature of their crimes, the men are trying to exploit Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights – which safeguards the right to family life.
