ROTHERHAM council Leader Cllr Chris Read welcomed the jail sentences given to three child sex abusers and said they showed there was “no hiding place” for people who groom and sexually abuse children.
The Masbrough men — Riaz Makhmood (39), of Falding Street, Sajid Ali (38), of James Street, and Zaheer Iqbal (40), of St John’s Avenue — were convicted for 15 offences of indecent assault and jailed following a trial at Sheffield Crown Court.
Cllr Read (pictured) said: “I am very pleased for the victim that these perpetrators have been convicted and given the sentences they deserve for what is a truly despicable crime.
“This should give further confidence to victims and survivors that they are being listened to and taken seriously.
