Default David Cameron’s Proud New Tories: Six Muslim Conservatives Jailed for Election Fraud

Six Muslim members of the Conservative Party have been jailed for
charges relating to election fraud during a council vote in Berkshire
by Reading Crown Court.

The charges related to an election in the Slough Central ward in May
2007 where Labour councillor Lydia Simmons lost her seat to Tory Raja
Khan. Mr Khan, along with two others, had previously admitted the
offences. Three other men were convicted by a jury.

The men, all from Slough, were jailed for between four-and-a-half
years and four months. The court heard they created hundreds of false
names in the weeks running up to the local election and entered them
on the voter register.

Raja Khan, 52, of Oban Court, Montem Lane, was jailed for three and a
half years after admitting conspiracy to defraud the returning officer
and perjury.

Gul Nawaz Khan, 58, of Richmond Crescent, pleaded guilty to perjury
and was jailed for eight months. Mohammed Basharat Khan, 46, of
Mirador Crescent, admitted conspiracy to defraud the returning officer
and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. He was jailed for
three years and four months.

Arshad Raja, 53, of Broadmark Road, was found guilty of conspiracy to
defraud the returning officer. He was given an 18-month prison
sentence. Mahboob Khan, 46, of Quinbrookes, was convicted of
conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and
perjury. He was jailed for four years and six months.

Altaf Khan, 32, of Knolton Way, was found guilty of impersonation but
not guilty of conspiracy to defraud the returning officer. He was
jailed for four months.

Yasar Mumtaz, 20, of Wellesley Road, was cleared of conspiracy to
defraud the returning officer. Former deputy mayor Mohammed Aziz, 50,
of Wellesley Road, was found not guilty on the direction of the judge
of conspiracy to defraud the returning officer after the jury had
failed to reach a verdict. The prosecution said it would not be
seeking a retrial in the case of Mr Aziz.

“Not for the first time, I found myself thinking that it is mainstream
Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of
life, not the other way around.” - David Cameron, “What I learnt from
my stay with a Muslim family,” The Observer, Sunday 13 May 2007.
