Correspondent 20th Oct, 2020 Updated: 20th Oct, 2020

THE National Crima Agency has appealed for help in finding a career drugs trafficker once jailed over a plot to import more than 100kg of heroin to the UK.

Khaliq Ur Rehman, 47, was jailed for 16 years in September 2011 over a conspiracy to import and supply more than 100kg of the Class A from Turkey to sell in the UK.

Wanted: Khaliq Ur Rehman.

He was released on licence in 2018 having served half his sentence but has sinced vanished after being arrested for new allegations.

As part of a Serious Crime Prevention Order (SCPO) restrictions were placed around Rehman of Highfield Road, Birmingham, including conditions that he must notify law enforcement of details around his communication devices, his vehicles and his money.

NCA officers discovered Rehman did not disclose all his mobile phone numbers and email addresses, raising suspicions he is still involved in serious and organised crime.

Investigators arrested him on September 17, 2020 on suspicion of breaching his SCPO, and he has not been seen since he was released under investigation.

The Agency is now appealing for information to help trace him.

Mick Pope, operations manager at the NCA, said: “Khaliq Ur Rehman is a career criminal who we believe is still involved in serious and organised crime.

“We need your help to recall him to prison. If you know of Rehman’s whereabouts or have any information that can help us find him, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone to report your suspicions.”

Rehman was convicted for drug dealing in 2002 and jailed for 12 years.

He is described as Asianwith has short dark hair and of stocky build.

He is known to have connections in Birmingham, especially in Alum Rock and Erdington.

Anyone with information on Rehman’s whereabouts should contact the National Crime Agency on 0370 496 7622 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
