It’s ‘a complicated case’ say CPS

Manchester Mags

Following an appearance at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on 3rd March, 2022, an unemployed 48 year old male from Mossley, Tameside was bailed to appear again on 12th April, 2022 for a further case management hearing.

He is due next at the same Magistrates’ Court on 12th April, 2022 when dates will be set for the two criminal trials. Greater Manchester Police describe the charges as harassment and sending malicious communications. The complainants are a 38 year old woman from the Salford area and a 42 year old woman from the Oldham area.

The adjournment was requested by the Crown Prosecution Service due to delays with serving the necessary paperwork. They say it is ‘a complicated case’. 

Raja Miah, a failed charity and free schools operator (read more here), was arrested in a dawn raid at his home in July, 2021. Six officers attended his luxury apartment in the upmarket commuter village of Mossley and the property was subsequently searched. Electronic devices and notebooks seized. GMP said, at the time, the raid was part of Operation Hexagon, an investigation into allegations of child sexual exploitation (read more here). 

He denies wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty at a hearing at Tameside Magistrates’ Court on 3rd February, 2022. He has been warned by GMP about witness intimidation but, nevertheless, appears to continually seek confrontation with the force over that issue (read more here).
