Shabir Ahmed, 63, the ringleader of a Rochdale child grooming gang cited human rights laws as he launched an appeal against deportation from Britain.
Shabir Ahmed’s appeal states his trial was “tainted” and a “miscarriage of justice” as it was “institutionally racist” using Muslims as “scapegoats”.
Shabir Ahmed, who born in Gujrat, Pakistan, first came to the UK in 1967 when he was 14 years old, He is now British Citizen, and he has been married three times and Father of 4 children.
Shabir Ahmed was given a 19-year sentence at Liverpool Crown Court in May 2012 for a string of child sex offences, including rape.
He was also jailed for 22 years, to run concurrently, in July 2012 for 30 rapes against another victim.
Shabir Ahmed appealed to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), claiming his convictions for child sex offences were a conspiracy by police and members of the jury to “scapegoat” Muslims. He lost the claim.
Along with Shabir Ahmed, 3 other men of the child grooming gang lead of Shabir Ahmed, are also appealing against a Home Office decision to kick them out of the country.
