All the hallmarks of another Muslim grooming gang cover up going on in Leicester following reports that a man had been up before the bench on child exploitation charges was in fact the 6th person to appear from the same case for sexual exploitation of a schoolgirl, inciting child prostitution and paying for sexual services. The other 5 men who appeared in court were all remanded in prison. There is a court order banning publication of their names, addresses and dates of birth.
Leicester man in court over alleged exploitation of 16-year-old girl
The five men, who were remanded into custody after their appearance in court, cannot be identified because of a court order banning publication of their names, addresses and dates of birth. The Leicester Mercury has twice challenged the order, but has been unsuccessful on both occasions. No such order was made in relation to Mistry, who did not enter a plea at yesterday’s hearing. He was bailed to appear at court again, with the other five defendants, next week. A 17-year-old youth and a 15-year-old youth arrested as part of the ongoing police investigation have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
