Rochdale grooming gang have British citizenship stripped, face deportation

Three men found guilty of conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16 and trafficking for sexual exploitation face deportation after losing their appeal against a decision to remove their citizenship.

Abdul Aziz, Adil Khan and Qari Abdul Rauf could have to leave the UK after the Court of Appeal judges rejected their plea against removing their British citizenship.

All three were part of 9 men jailed for the sexual exploitation of young girls in Rochdale and Oldham, and were informed in 2015 by the Home Office they would be stripped of citizenship.

The men challenged the decision claiming it would breach their human rights.

After losing all attempts at appeal, the men face deportation to Pakistan.

These disgusting men do not deserve British citizenship and should never be allowed back into the country after being deported.
