Vejuhadin Ghorbani Appears In Court On Child Sex Charges
Vejuhadin Ghorbani, who allegedly abducted two girls from the Clifton area of Rotherham, has appeared before the court, charged with child sex offences. He was accused of causing, or inciting, a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity, and child abduction.
The two girls aged 11 and 13 were reported missing from the Rotherham area at 10.20pm on Saturday. Their disappearance sparked a major police hunt, with officers from across the South Yorkshire force drafted in to help.
Mr Ghorbani, 37, appeared in the dock during the brief hearing and spoke through an interpreter.
Reading out the charges, district judge Jonathan Taaffe said: “Between Saturday September 6 and Sunday September 7 of this year at Rotherham, being a person aged 18 or over, you intentionally attempted to cause or incite a girl aged 13, not reasonably believing she was aged 16 or over, to engage in sexual activity.
“The second matter you face, on Saturday September 6 this year, without lawful authority or reasonable excuse, you took a child under the age of 16, so as to keep her out of the lawful control of the person entitled to lawful control of the said child.”
Mr Ghorbani was remanded in custody and will appear before Sheffield Crown Court on September 23.
