From the Huddersfield Daily Examiner

A total of 29 people appeared in court today (yesterday Wednesday 12th) in connection with historic child sex offences. The defendants - 24 of which are from Huddersfield - were charged after girls as young as 11 were raped and sexually abused.

The cases involving the 27 men and two women were heard in a specially dedicated courtroom at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court ...the charges against the defendants are historic, dated between 2004 and 2011, and relate to 18 female victims. The offences were committed in the Huddersfield area and are alleged to have taken place when the victims were aged between 11 and 17.

The Examiner can for the first time reveal their full addresses after we successfully challenged some of the defendants’ solicitors who had argued these should not be made public.

Due to the high level of public interest in the case, members of the press were allowed priority seating in the public gallery alongside a few family members of the defendants.

Several defendants made requests to vary their bail addresses while others were granted permission to change their solicitors.

Some were ordered by District Judge Michael Fanning to remove their hats upon entering the courtroom while several were told to remove chewing gum from their mouths.

The cases lasted the full three-hour morning session and spilled over into the lunch break as defendants’ details and charges were read out in batches of three or four.

Three defendants, Zahid Hassan, 28; Manzoor Hassan, 37, and Mansoor Akhtar, 25, appeared from custody as they are currently serving prisoners.

Judge Fanning, who permitted reporters to tweet the proceedings, told all the accused: “These matters can only be dealt with by a judge and jury at Leeds Crown Court. “I’m sending you to Leeds Crown Court on May 11.”

Members of the Yorkshire Divisions of the EDL demonstrated outside the courtroom as did Tommy Robinson. 

The two women and 24 of the men have names generally associated with Islam. One, who is black, has a European name. Two of the men have Sikh names which is causing dismay on some of the Sikh websites. Some are calling for cultural sanctions for men who have disgraced an upright honourable religion; others urge that as a man is innocent until proven guilty they should wait for the verdicts, and then sanction. The defendants are:
