FORMER Labor counterpart Nazir Ahmed was jailed yesterday on historic child sex charges.
The 64-year-old, known as Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, received five and a half years for twice attempting to rape a five-year-old girl and sexually abusing a boy in the 1970s.
In an impact statement, his female victim said: “The overwhelming feeling of shame remained with me throughout my childhood.
“It was a burden that I had to carry.
“Now is the time for me to pass that burden on to him. In the end, all tyrants fall.”
The male victim told Sheffield Crown Court: “I feel embarrassed. This is about justice, not revenge.”
Ahmed’s brothers, Mohammed Farouq, 71, and Mohammed Tariq, 65, were deemed unfit to stand trial but the jury found they had indecently assaulted the boy.
Both are completely discharged.
