A Slough man has been given a two-year prison sentence suspended for two years for perverting the court of justice.
Musatfa Hussain, 34, of Montague Road in Slough, was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on April 19, where he must carry out 150 hours’ unpaid work and to pay £2,000 in costs.
This comes after 33-year-old Anisah Ahmed from Oxford, was given a discretionary life sentence with a minimum term of four years and six months’ imprisonment for committing the same crime.
In 2015, Ahmed falsified threatening emails in order to obtain an injunction against a 39-year-old male victim.
She also worked together with Hussain by creating false allegations of kidnapping, rape, grievous bodily harm and other offences against the same victim.
The pair were charged with the offences in May 2019.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Charlotte Oliver, of Oxford CID, said: “This was a long and complicated investigation into false allegations of some extremely serious offences.
“Ahmed attempted to incriminate the victim and worked with Hussain in order to achieve this.
“She also falsified emails in order to obtain an injunction against him.
“This has been an extremely distressing time for the victim, and the sentencing handed out by the court demonstrates the seriousness of these offences.
“I am pleased that justice has now been achieved.”
