Rochdale child sex gang ringleader appeals against deportation
The ringleader of a Rochdale child sex grooming gang cited human rights laws as he launched an appeal against deportation from Britain.
Shabir Ahmed, 63 – described by a judge as a "violent hypocritical bully" – has written to the European court of human rights (ECHR) claiming his convictions for child sex offences were a conspiracy to "scapegoat" Muslims.
Ahmed, serving 22 years in jail, was convicted in 2012 of being the ringleader of a group of Asian men who preyed on girls as young as 13 in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.
