The sentencing of five men who were found guilty of grievous bodily harm at a St Albans mosque has been adjourned until March 1.

One defendant had not been brought to court and two defence barristers had not been able to get to today’s hearing Luton crown court.

The next hearing will be on March 1.

Mohammed Anam, aged 49, Holyrood Crescent, St Albans; Mohammed Mortuza, aged 50, Alexander Road, London Colney; Ali Choudhury, aged 49, Wilshire Avenue, St Albans and Mohammed Choudhury, aged 67, Cell Barnes Lane, St Albans, were all found guilty of GBH with intent against a 48-year-old man from St Albans following a seven week trial at St Albans Crown Court in December.

Detective Constable Rob Davies from the Local Crime Unit said: “This was a serious assault which left a man with three broken ribs and he was in hospital for over two weeks. He was lured to the Jamie Mosque via a text message sent by Mohammed Mortuza, the five convicted men then set upon him and then tried to cover up their crime.

“This has been a two-and-a-half year investigation and we are pleased that these men have now been convicted.”
