A 13-year-old girl from a ‘troubled family’ was abducted by three men and forced into becoming their sex slave.
The girl was subjected to a string of assaults over four days after being trafficked from her home in London to Ipswich, prosecutor Riel Karmy-Jones told Norwich Crown Court.
Suran Uddin, 28, of St Matthew’s Row, Bethnal Green, London, Mohammed Sheikh, 31, of Seaton Point in Hackney, London, and Hamza Ali, 38, of Chilford Road, Waltham Forest, London, denied various sex offences during a three week trial.
But following three days of jury deliberations, Uddin, Sheikh and Ali were today all found guilty of conspiracy to traffick in the UK and supplying a class B drug to the victim.
Uddin was also convicted of two counts of rape.
Sheikh was convicted on a charge of causing a child to engage in sexual activity but was cleared of two counts of rape.
Ali was found guilty of a sexual assault but not guilty of rape.
The men will be sentenced at a later date.
Abdul Hammed, 46, of Wellington Street, Ipswich, was cleared of supplying a class B drug and two counts of rape.
