(Scroll down for video) Members of a child sex abuse gang were jailed after sharing their underage girlfriends among themselves, claiming that it was part of their culture and tradition, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
Now, seven men have been jailed for their involvement in sex crimes against children in Bristol. The men were charged with rape and teenage prostitution.
24-year-old Mohamed Jumale, 22-year-old Mohamed Dahir, 22-year-old Said Zakaria, 21-year-old Abdirashid Abdullahi, 21-year-old Sakariya Sheikh, 20-year-old Jusef Abdirizak, and 20-year-old Omar Jumale, were sentenced at the Bristol Crown Court by Judge Julian Lambert.
The court heard that the seven men abused girls, aged between 13 and 17, and shared the teens among themselves. The girls were told that sharing girlfriends was part of the culture and tradition.
A 13-year-old girl described how she was raped four times by three different men after having been trafficked through Bristol by Said Zakaria.
Mohamed Jumale forced another victim to have sex with his younger brother, Omar Jumale. Police believe that the girls were abused over a period of two years.
A total of 14 men were convicted of multiple felony charges in connection with the case. The defendants received prison terms of between 18 months and 13 years.
