Three members of vile Rochdale child sex ring to be deported to Pakistan SIX YEARS after they were jailed!
The three men were among the nine men arrested and jailed in Greater Manchester in 2012 for sex trafficking, and other offenses including rape, and sex with minors.
At least three members of the Rochdale child sex ring are set to be deported to Pakistan after they lost an appeal against being stripped of British citizenship, according to reports.
The three men — taxi drivers Abdul Aziz, 47, Adil Khan, 48, and Abdul Rauf, 48 — were among the nine men arrested and jailed in Greater Manchester in 2012 for sex trafficking, and other offenses including rape, and sex with minors. Ten more members were later convicted in 2015.
Prime Minister Theresa May, who was then home secretary, had ruled in 2015 that all the three men should have their names deleted from the roll of British citizens. The said men have dual British and Pakistani nationality, according to the Daily Mail.
After the ruling from Court of Appeal, the British government now plans to deport the men to Pakistan falling their release from prison.

Reports state that all of the three accused have British children, and had challenged the court’s decision claiming that it violated their human right to have a family life.
However, their appeal to retain British citizenship failed on Tuesday as senior judges said that it was “conducive to the public good” if these men were stripped of their citizenship.
All the three men are now reportedly out of prison. Aziz was sentenced to nine years in prison, Rauf was sentenced to a six-year term, and Khan was jailed for eight years.
Speaking during the ruling on Tuesday, Lord Justice Sales said that the accused's actions amounted to “serious organized crime.”
“The crimes were plainly very serious, and there was a sufficient element of organization in the way they were committed to justify characterizing the offending as participation in serious organized crime,” Lord Justice Sales added.
The judge who jailed the men at Liverpool Crown Court in May 2012, Gerald Clifton, said that the men “raped (the victims) callously, viciously and violently.”
“In some cases, they were driven round Rochdale and Oldham to be made to have sex with paying customers. All the men treated the girls as though they were worthless and beyond all respect,” he added.
