Politician left with £98,000 bill after losing 'Islamification' case
A Liberal Democrat politician is facing a £98,000 bill for costs after losing a court challenge claiming he failed to win a seat because of the "Islamification" of politics in Birmingham.
Shamsur Rehman claimed his Muslim Labour rival in the Washwood Heath ward won Birmingham City Council seat after posting a threat on Facebook that if Muslims did not vote for him, they would "go to hell".
But at an election court on Thursday his claim was dismissed after a judge ruled there was no evidence that any kind of corruption took place.
