- Brothers groomed teenage girls in Rotherham meting out horrific abuse
- Three were jailed in April, the fourth was sentence today with seven others
- The brother jailed today said: 'All white girls are good for is sex,' court told
The last of four brothers who orchestrated some of worst abuse of teenage girls in Rotherham has been jailed today.
Sageer Hussain was one of a gang of eight men sentenced to a total of 96 years in prison for 'degrading and violent' sexual offences against youngsters.
It can be revealed for the first time today that he and his three brothers - Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras - were the most notorious perpetrators of terrible abuse against teenage girls in the South Yorkshire town.
His trial heard Sageer once proclaimed: 'All white girls are good for is sex and they are just sl*gs.'
Hussain was jailed for 19 years today after his brothers Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras were jailed in April.
The latest trial heard that one victim had gone to the police in 2003, saying she had been repeatedly raped by Sageer when she was 13.
She and her family told police, their MP and the then home secretary David Blunkett about the abuse and eventually moved to Spain to get away from the men.
Michelle Colborne QC, prosecuting, told the jury that the girl, now in her late 20s, and her family withdrew the allegations after receiving threats that their house would be burned down the family home and her mother would be raped.
But the court was also told that police lost the girl's clothes without carrying out any forensic analysis.
Tapes of Sageer's 2003 police interview were also apparently destroyed.
Files belonging to the youth support group Risky Business compiled at the time of her complaint were also lost as well as phones seized during the police probe.
The family tried to get help from social services as well and took the girl out of school before eventually moving abroad.
Ms Colborne said the court case was about three victims 'who were sexualised and, in some instances, subjected to acts of a degrading and violent nature at the hands of these men'.
The victim the trial centred around was subjected forced to perform a sex act on five males as she was locked away in a flat.
She lost her virginity during the first savage attack by Hussain, in the same alleyway he used as the destination for other rape attempts.
The prosecutor said Sageer played a 'key role' and was 'instrumental in befriending young girls who were flattered that he and his friends spent time with them'.
They were then exploited by Sageer, his friends and associates, seven of whom were sentenced today.
Mohammed Whied, 32, was jailed for five years after being found guilty of one count of aiding and abetting rape.
Ishtiaq Khaliq, 33, was sentenced to 17 years in prison after being convicted of one rape and three indecent assaults.
Waleed Ali, 34, was jailed for 13 years after being found guilty of one rape and one indecent assault. Asif Ali, 30, was given a 12-year term after being convicted of one rape.
Masoued Malik, 32, was jailed for 15 years after being found guilty of one rape, one count of conspiracy to commit indecent assault and one of false imprisonment.
Naeem Rafiq, 33, was sentenced to eight years after being convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit indecent assault and one of false imprisonment.
Basharat Hussain, 40, was convicted of one indecent assault. Hussain, who is currently serving a sentence at HMP Wakefield, was given an additional seven years to run alongside his current term.
Judge Sarah Wright told the men: 'The victim of all eight of you was vulnerable - she was 13 and 14 years old.
'Although she had a loving and supportive family, and was doing well at school, she was susceptible to the attention that you and others gave her.
'She was targeted, sexualised and subjected to acts of degrading and violent nature.'
Adding: 'Each of the victims in this case were groomed, coerced and intimidated.'
Speaking about the impact on one of the victims, Judge Wright said: 'The childhood and adolescence of each of the victims can never be reclaimed - each has suffered severe psychological harm.
'They continue, and will continue to suffer considerable trauma throughout their lives.'
An official inquiry into exploitation in Rotherham in 2014 by Professor Alexis Jay concluded that at least 1,400 children had been raped, trafficked and attacked between 1997 and 2013 by gangs of largely Asian men, and that the victims were effectively ignored.
Speaking after the verdicts last month, Detective Chief Inspector Martin Tate said: 'The verdicts today are of massive importance to the young women who have come forward to report years of horrific sexual abuse at the hands of these criminals.
'They had to endure what no child should and have shown remarkable bravery throughout our inquiry.'
He said: 'I am so grateful to these women, many of whom remain incredibly vulnerable, for offering their support to our investigative team and I am so pleased that their voices have been heard and their abusers have been held to account for their vile crimes.'
Ringleader Arshid Hussain was jailed for 35 years in April by a judge who told him: 'The harm you have caused is of unimaginable proportions'.
In April, Basharat was jailed for 25 years and Bannaras 19 years following the first successful prosecution of a grooming gang in Rotherham since the child sexual exploitation scandal engulfed the town two years ago.
