UK: Child rapist flew to Pakistan halfway through his sex abuse trial

A CHILD rapist fled the UK when he was given a day off from his trial to attend a family funeral.

Choudhry Hussain, 38, flew to Pakistan halfway through his sex abuse trial.

He had permission to attend the funeral in Birmingham but he had lied about the dead relative and instead flew to Amsterdam, then Islamabad.

Hussain, of Rochdale, Gtr Manchester, had denied sexual activity with a child, two rapes and conspiracy to rape a girl of 14.

The delivery driver was convicted in his absence at Manchester’s Minshull Street crown court.

Last night the father of “Girl A”, who was abused by a Rochdale-based Asian sex gang jailed in 2012, blasted the justice system.

He said: “When will they learn?

“Surely someone should have worked out what he was planning. One of the men who attacked my daughter managed the same trick and flew to Islamabad. He’s never paid for his crimes.”

The jury heard Hussain abused his victim for three years. She stopped him raping her sister by taking her place.

Nine others were convicted of sex offences including rape and sexual activity with a child between 2004 and 2008. They will be sentenced in April.
