#AceNewsReport – Nov.20: A woman claims Mr Ahmed tried to rape her in the early 1970s when he was 16 or 17-years-old and she was much younger: The 64-year-old ex-politician is also accused of a serious sexual assault against a boy under 11, also in the early 1970s, plus the indecent assault of the same minor.
#AceDailyNews says according to Metro News Report: The charges against Nazir Ahmed, who previously sat in the House of Lord as Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, stretch back more than 40 years: Mr Ahmed’s trial got under way at Sheffield Crown Court yesterday. He denies all offences as trial continues …..
Ahmed was charged along with his two older brothers – Mohammed Farouq, 71, and Mohammed Tariq, 65 – but both these men have been deemed unfit to stand trial.
Farouq and Tariq face charges of indecent assault in relation to the same boy that Ahmed is alleged to have abused.
But the jury has not been asked to determine whether they are guilty of these offences, just whether they did the acts alleged.
Setting out the prosecution’s cases Tom Little QC told the court:
” This is about repeated sexual abuse that took place in Rotherham over a number of years.: ‘ He added: ‘Those involved kept it buried away for many years. It is no longer buried away and no longer kept quiet as they have complained.’
Mr Little said it was ‘not a single incident…not isolated and it was not innocent sexual experimentation by children’, describing it as ‘abuse, repeated abuse, plain and simple.’
The jury was played a recording of a telephone call between the two complainants, made by the woman after she went to the police in 2016, which was prompted by the man contacting the woman by email saying ‘I have evidence against that paedophile’
In the recording, the woman says to the man: ‘What they did to you was utterly wrong and it’s time now to seek justice for the little boy who could not protect himself.’
She says: ‘I’m not waiting any more. This is not just for me. It’s for you and for all the children Nazir Ahmed has abused and his brothers now.
‘The police will look after you. They will believe you. They will take your allegations seriously. They are on your side. You are a victim.’
Sounding very upset, the man tells the woman: ‘I don’t want the bastard to get away with it.’
The man, who says the abuse against him began at infant school, was also heard saying ‘I thought I was the only one’.
The prosecutor told the jury Mr Ahmed says the allegations are ‘malicious fictions’ and that he told police it seemed there was ‘an agenda behind the complaints’ and he was concerned that if he responded to the allegations this would be ‘manipulated’.
Ahmed, from Rotherham, sat in the dock with a security guard wearing a dark suit, a purple shirt and a predominantly red tie.
He denies buggery of a boy under 11, two counts of attempted rape of a girl under 16 and the indecent assault of a boy under 11.
The trial continues.
