CCRC Refers the Rape Conviction of Sajid Ali Court of Appeal

The Criminal Cases Review Commission has referred the rape conviction of Mr Ali to the Court of Appeal.

Mr Ali pleaded not guilty but was convicted of rape at Birmingham Crown Court in January 2009 and sentenced to five years’ imprisonment.

He tried to appeal against the conviction but the appeal was dismissed in 2010. He applied to the Commission for a review of his case in 2010.

Having considered the case in detail, the Commission has decided to refer Mr Ali’s conviction to the Court of Appeal because it believes there is a real possibility that the court will now quash his conviction.

The referral is made on the basis of new evidence identified by the Commission that the complainant had previously made a demonstrably false complaint the circumstances of which were sufficiently similar to the complaint about Mr Ali that it is relevant to the credibility of the complainant in Mr Ali’s case.

Mr Ali is represented by Rafiq & Co, 291 Roundhay Road, Leeds LS8 4HS.
