Conviction of Adnan Ahmed, Glasgow Sheriff Court – 25 September 2019

 

 

Thirty-eight-year-old Adnan Ahmed has today (Wednesday 25 September 2019) been found guilty of five offences at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

An investigation was launched in January 2019, following concerns which were raised regarding Adnan’s behaviour towards women. 

During the investigation, officers identified a number of women, aged between 17 and 24, who had been targeted by Ahmed.

He was subsequently arrested and charged under S.38 of the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010. 

Today, he has been found guilty and held to account for his actions.

Detective Inspector Mark McLennan, senior investigating officer, said:  “The women Ahmed approached were subjected to harassment and were frightened by his unwanted attention.

“I want to pay tribute to the courage of these women in coming forward and giving evidence in order to bring Ahmed to justice, particularly as he appears to have expected them to tolerate his unwarranted and unwelcome behaviour.
