05.11.2011

A small travel agent from Birmingham has been found guilty of ripping off a Muslim family over Hajj pilgrimage package to Saudi Arabia bought in July 2009. As the Birmingham Mail reports, during a five-day trial at Birmingham Court, the jury heard about the family’s trip to Mecca and Medina that was blighted by a “catalogue of disasters” and then found the owner of the agency, Chowdhury Ahmad, guilty of one charge of fraud and three counts of flouting package holiday regulations. Ahmad was released on unconditional bail, but could be jailed when he is sentenced on December 9th.
