Muslim man, 28, ‘raped woman after threatening to advertise her as a prostitute’

January 15, 2014 | by | 1 Comment

A blackmailing engineer raped a woman before pocketing her life savings after threatening to hand out X-rated posters of her in lingerie advertising her as a PROSTITUTE, a court heard.

Daood Hussain, 28, is accused of forcing his victim to meet for regular sex sessions at hotels and in his car where she was made to hand over more than  £10,000 in cash.

If she failed to pay Hussain told her he would print out images he made on his computer of her wearing underwear and show them to her strict Muslim family, jurors were told.

Birmingham Crown Court heard he would force his victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, to perform lewd sex acts on him before demanding cash for his silence.

On Monday the unemployed electrical engineer went on trial accused of 12 charges of rape and one count of blackmail.

Opening the case prosecutor Paul Jarvis said: ‘‘This case is all about financial and sexual exploitation by this man.

“She was fearful of what he would do if she did not comply with his requests.

“Her family would have been horrified to find she was allowing pictures to be taken in that way.

“She simply couldn’t bear to face the consequences that would follow if her family saw the document.

In a police interview played to the court the woman said Hussain had demanded she meet him throughout the summer of 2012.

She claimed he showed her a leaflet he had made on his computer which included pictures he’d taken of her in lingerie, along with her address and telephone number.

A caption at the bottom of the home-made note advertised her as a high-class hooker, it was claimed.

In a tearful interview the woman told West Midlands Police officers: “I begged him not to do anything and told him about the situation at home. My mum had been in hospital.

“I told him he wouldn’t achieve anything but… he wasn’t listening to anything I said.

“He made up his mind that’s what he was going to do and that’s what he did.

“I tried so hard not to cry in front of him so he wouldn’t know he was getting to me.

“I’m in shock, devastated.’’

The woman told police officers she agreed to meet Hussain ten times in the run up to Ramadan in June and July 2012.

The court heard the meetings would take place in his car and at various hotels around Birmingham.

Each time she said he demanded she perform a sex act on him, or the pictures would be shown to her family.

She eventually complained to police and Hussain was arrested. His mobile phone and laptops were seized.

Jurors were told officers found £2,700 cash from the woman’s bank account in his room and his home-made document advertising the victim as a prostitute on his computer.

Defending Farah Ramzan said the woman had consented to sex and had paid for some of the hotel rooms where the pair had met.

Hussain, of Bordesley Village, Birmingham, denies all charges against him.

The jury of five women and seven men were sent home on Tuesday and resumed their deliberations today.
