A picture of a convicted sex offender who is on the run has been distributed to Garda stations in Kerry.
Gardai are tracing the Pakistani national following a request from UK police. A European arrest warrant has been issued for Mian Mujahid Ali Shahid who was last seen in the Foynes area on August 11th after travelling here from Scotland. The 19 year old was convicted in his absence at Stafford Crown Court on April 13th of two counts of sexual assault on an 18-year-old woman. On May 20th, also in his absence, he was sentenced to 30 months in prison. Following a request from UK police Gardai at Henry Street, Limerick are seeking Mr Shahid’s whereabouts but as yet have failed to trace him. They are appealing to the driver of a car in which Mian Shadid was a passenger travelling in the Foynes area or Mr Shahid himself to contact them.
