UK: 4 men convicted of sexually abusing 13 year old child

(Telford) A jury has convicted four men from Telford who abused a vulnerable young girl after she was "passed around like a piece of meat", sold for sex and raped.

The victim told how she was forced to perform sex acts in a churchyard, raped above a shop on a filthy mattress, and violently abused when she tried to refuse their advances. In all, five men went on trial at Birmingham Crown Court. The offences are alleged to have taken place in Telford sometime between 2000 and 2003, and started when the girl, now an adult, was just 13 in court:

  • Ali Sultan was convicted of rape and three counts of indecent assault.
  • Mohammad Rizwan, 37 was also convicted of two counts of indecent assault.
  • Shafiq Younas, 35, was found guilty of indecently assaulting the victim in a churchyard.
  • Amjad Hussain, 38, of Telford was convicted of a single count of indecent assault.
