Former peers sexually assaulted boys and attempted to rape girls-British court-Action News Now

Former Labor Party politician Nazir Ahmed was convicted of crimes committed nearly 50 years ago


A British court ruled that Nazir Ahmed, the former Lord Ahmed, was guilty of grossly sexually assaulting a boy and attempting to rape a girl under 13 years of age. These crimes date back to the 1970s .

Sheffield Criminal Court learned that the Pakistani-born politician was a teenager when he committed the crime.The prosecutor said that although Ahmed has always claimed that the allegations are “Malicious Novel” Telephone recordings of conversations between his two victims in 2016 proved that this story was not reasonably suspected. “Fabricated or concocted.”


A woman who participated in that conversation told the jury how Ahmed tried to rape her in the early 1970s.

Rosemary Ainsley, head of the Special Crimes Unit of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), praised the guilty verdict “When there is sufficient evidence, even in challenging cases, CPS will file a lawsuit, submit the evidence to the jury and review the correct conviction,” Even in this case, the defendant held “The position of power, influence and responsibility in the House of Lords over a period of time.”


Ahmed’s two brothers, Mohammed Farouq and Mohammed Tariq, were accused of molesting the same boy. Ahmed had also abused him but was deemed unfit for trial. The politician was released on bail, awaiting a sentencing hearing to be held on February 4.

Ahmed is no stranger to allegations of sexual misconduct. In November 2020, he was forced to resign from the House of Lords after a conduct committee report accused him of sexually and emotionally exploiting vulnerable women who sought his help.

Ahmed was the first peer to be recommended to be expelled, which is doubtful. However, before his colleagues removed him from his position, he voluntarily resigned. An investigation conducted by the BBC program “News Night” brought the scandal that led to his downfall to the public’s attention.
