Connor Gordon “The Sun” Bias Reporting Against Adnan Ahmed “Not Guilty!” During Trial 18th September 2019

Connor Gordon Uses Selective Negative Quotes To Influence Public Perception During A Man’s Trial “Glasgow Student Asked To Go For A Drink With A Man Called Addy Agame Ahmed Who Claimed She Looked Like Kim Kardashian”

The Sun/ Connor Gordon start their article covering day two of the Adnan Ahmed trail at Glasgow Sheriff Court by stating; “a student has told jurors how she was asked to go for a drink by a man called Addy Agame who claimed she looked like Kim Kardashian.” This is not a crime under Scottish Law and these claims were made by the accuser. The Sun continued; “The 20 year old woman said she was contacted on Instagram after being approached by the man the previous day.” What The Sun/Connor Gordon failed to state is that the 20 year old woman also told jurors she also messaged the man on Instagram, they also failed to establish how the man and woman added each other on Instagram!

The Sun/Connor Gordon continued; “Adnan Ahmed denies 18 charges including sexual assault and behaving in a threatening and abusive manner.” This is true, Mr Ahmed is adamant he is not guilty of any of the charges. The Sun/Connor Gordon also said; “alleged to have occurred in Glasgow and Uddingston,”

This specific allegation was alleged to occur in Glasgow, The Sun/Connor Gordon incorrectly reported; “the court heard the woman was approached in Royal Exchange Square last November.” This is false, the witness told jurors she was approached on “Buchanan Street.” The Sun/Connor Gordon continued; “she told jurors, I thought it was a prank, he managed to get my name from my phone case, she felt uncomfortable and intimidated by the man, she was asked to go for a glass of wine, she pretended to have a boyfriend.” This is an allegation, it has not been proven in a court of law and does not constitute as a recognised crime under Scottish Law!

The Sun/Connor Gordon continued to report that the woman told the jury that the man messaged her on Instagram and she messaged him also, The Sun/Connor Gordon also stated; “the man went onto claim the woman was racist before she blocked him.” This is an allegation that has not been proven in a court of law. Jurors also heard that this account of messages were from only one source, the witness, they were not found on the accused’s phone or laptop. The Sun/Connor Gordon continued there selective bias reporting by stating; “she told jurors, I think he thought it was a challenge to go out with me.” The jurors also heard this supposedly happened in 2018 and was not reported until 2019. The BBC made a video defaming Ahmed in January 2019, triggering a cyber bullying campaign against him, leading to his remand.

The Sun/Connor Gordon then incorrectly reported; “another student told how a man followed her called Addy from a sandwich shop in 2017.” This is false, the woman told jurors she was going to a sandwich shop after college for lunch. The Sun/Connor Gordon also failed to report that jurors heard this witness was given the opportunity to identify Adnan Ahmed in an identity parade and failed to do so instead she picked out someone else who was not him. The Sun/Connor Gordon continued to quote the witness; “she said he made inappropriate comments, he claimed she had “Italian cheekbones” and “sexy legs.” This has not been proven in court and is not a recognised crime under Scottish Law!

The Sun/Connor Gordon continued; “the woman said, I just tried to get away from him, he was following me, I thought about saying something to someone but I was scared, I didn’t know what to do.” The Sun/Connor Gordon failed to mention that the woman told jurors that; “we ate at the same table, the staff asked if we were together, he went to the toilet in between, he talked to me, I talked to him to be polite.” The sandwich shop was revealed to jurors to be “Subway” on Nelson Mandela Square, which has CCTV, the incident has said to have took place during the day in 2017 and not reported until 2019. The Sun/Connor Gordon selectively reported; “the woman managed to escape to a nearby train station and sobbed before going home.” The woman did not use the word “escape” this is hearsay by The Sun/Connor Gordon. Connor Gordon left out that this woman also told jurors; “outside subway, I took his phone, typed in my number and gave it back to him.” Why would The Sun/Connor Gordon leave out this vital information, this is not fair to the accused and suggests an agenda on their part! The woman also confirmed (in court) that there was an exchange of text messages between her and the man.

Note – Adnan Ahmed was found not guilty and acquitted of this charge due to the complainer being a lying perjurer.
